Confusion leads to clarity…
I learned a concept a couple of years ago, that dramatically enhanced my ability to learn new skills and create ideas, and what the concept specifically states is that in order to have clarity – it HAS to be preceded by confusion, because of the nature of the mind – AND, not only that – it couldn’t be any other way. In fact, you could say that you can’t NOT be confused before you have a breakthrough. First, let’s answer the hidden question of ‘why’ that is, and then let me tell you how you can utilize that concept to create inspiration and personal growth on demand, at any time you choose…
So why does your mind NEED to create confusion, in order to have personal breakthroughs?
There were three things that added to the quantity and quality of insights, and when I picked up on why they happened, I found out how to have them all the time, and now that I have spent 8 years researching the mind, I understand WHY they happen, as well. Creating ‘Inspirational Flashes’ On Demand.
These are the three things that force instantaneous inspiration to appear:
1. The amount of time I studied, and the number and quality of direct and specific unanswered questions I had in my mind.
2. The amount of contradicting information I encountered on a day to day basis. This step caused a new set of direct questions.
3. The desire, intensity, and length of asking the questions and actively seeking answers and solutions. These three things working together at one point will cause the fourth step to manifest:
4. Either I have a nervous breakdown and stop asking questions, OR I have burst of brilliant
inspiration, eventually, connecting seemingly nonsensical data into a blinding insight that solves an apparent unsolvable problem.
POW. Every single time I’ve followed that formula, I’ve gotten a unique ‘inspirational insight’ into whatever subject I’ve used it on.
Why? It’s actually pretty simple – the human nervous system operates predominantly on two kinds of memory Electrical and Reflex. Reflex memory is what everyone is used to and in most things we do, is actually the most useful. It also takes several days to form and is the hardest to increase. The reason reflex memory is powerful, is that it takes zero processing time to use – so with language, for example, you can speak while simultaneously thinking because language is actually a physical, hardwired connection between representational systems in the brain.
Electrical memory, however, has by far the greater level of insight and memories, is easy to form and manipulate, and doesn’t operate on the same principles at all as reflexes do. Because the connections are not stored directly in the brain, but are instead an interference pattern similar to what creates a hologram – you can store an unlimited amount of data, it just requires slight processing time to be able to use.
ALL memory is simply a set of connections between relevant or irrelevant data that you formed either on purpose or unconsciously throughout your life. With a reflex, it takes 24 days for a nerve cell to actually grow and form a solid, permanent connection with another cell, with Electrical memory, it can form and develop almost instantaneous permanence, that can also develop into reflexes later.
An example would be – if you ever have gotten in a life threatening car crash – the tie between the emotion of fear and the image of being smashed by another vehicle produces a feeling of dread and terror combined with a visual image of being hit by a car. If you keep replaying that association in your mind for 24 days, it will form a permanent association that can manifest for the rest of your life as an irrational phobia, until you rewire the connection. For example, your heart might start pounding unstoppably whenever you get in a car, and it could cause physical discomfort and upset.
Using a similar pattern, it’s possible to break an irrational phobia like this in a 15 minute conversation if you understand what your doing, and permanently sever the connection in 24 days of repeating the new pattern. SO… How does the inspirational insight occur? Simple: Your mind is seeking a solution that doesn’t exist with relevant internal connections (memories), and your unconscious mind takes the images, sounds, and existing information and associations, and creates a new electrical connection in your mind (a new memory) and it manifests as a brilliant burst of information, coupled with a release of neurotransmitters that make you feel a bit on Cloud 9. Now here’s to your breakthrough!
