The more books I read about free will, neuroscience, and neuroplasticity, the more I realize that each of us has “a window” of awareness.
It’s The Window in your mind where thoughts appear.
It’s the mental place where you can consciously choose to follow, or not, the thoughts that come to you.
But you can’t consciously act on or reject any thought you haven’t witnessed in that window of your mind.
And for now, you don’t have control over what thoughts occur to you.
To prove this, predict your next thought.
Go ahead and try.
You can tell me what it is after you think it, but you can’t tell me what it will be beforehand.
That means that your thoughts come from somewhere else and appear in your “window” of awareness for you to then observe.
You don’t think thoughts; they think you.
Where do thoughts come from?
In the ho’oponopono tradition (as written about in my books Zero Limits and At Zero, and as taught by Dr. Hew Len), your thoughts arise from the programs or data in your subconscious/unconscious mind.
Programs are mental paradigms, mindsets, perceptions and more. They are memories.
In neuroscience, the thoughts arise from your unconscious storehouse of beliefs, experiences, and more.
They are pretty much saying the same thing: thoughts appear from what’s in your subconscious mind.
In both views, your thoughts “appear” from somewhere out of your full conscious awareness.
Your thoughts are appearing in “the window” of your conscious mind, bubbling up from what is hidden in the mind below, from an underground database of memories/beliefs/data.
This is so important that I’m not even sure where to begin to explain it.
For example –
If you are trying to attract money but struggling at it, it isn’t your fault at all.
The programs in your unconscious are not allowing you to see the opportunities for wealth around you.
It’s as if you are wearing blinders, goggles, or filters.
The hidden data in your mind about money is what allows or prevents thoughts about money to enter “the window” of awareness in your mind.
What sort of hidden beliefs might keep money away?
Money is bad.
Money is evil.
Money is not spiritual.
Money is not good for me.
And so it goes.
Any limiting program in the subconscious is the “blinder” preventing you from seeing anything that could help you.
What enters “your window” of awareness is based on your programs.
Change the program and you see a different reality.
New thoughts will arise.
And in “the window” you will see new choices.
You can still ignore what appears in “the window” of your mind.
Some call that free will.
But it might be more accurate to call it “free won’t.”
When a thought floats into your window of awareness, you can act on it or not.
You have the freedom to decide once you are aware of the thought.
But your “window” is the only place you get to consciously choose anything, and what appears in that window will come from your secret mental software – unless you start working with the programs and data in your unconscious/subconscious.
How do you change the hidden programs?
There are numerous ways, and I’ve written about them in many books, such as The Key, and spoken about them in many audio programs, such as The Zero Point and The Missing Secret.
I also started Miracles Coaching so you can have one on one assistance in working with your database of hidden beliefs.
A new way to begin dealing with the hidden programs is with what I call The Fourth Dimension Process.
I wrote a Special Report about it which you can have, free, by clicking here: The Fourth Dimension Process: Hyper-Manifestation for Wealth.
This brand new report reveals the process and proves it works by explaining how I used it to manifest one of the biggest goals of my entire life.
I also just taught it, with the help of Dr. Steve G. Jones, to a group of eight people in a private seminar in Las Vegas.
Every person loved it and said — on camera — that it transformed them.
I think you’ll like it, too.
Meanwhile, consider where your thoughts are coming from.
Even right now, whether you like your thoughts or not, notice that the thoughts seem to float into The Window of your awareness from someplace else.
And then consider how you respond to those thoughts.
Again, you have free will.
And free won’t.
The point is, if you are trying to attract or achieve something and not succeeding, it most likely isn’t what you are consciously thinking, but what you are un-consciously believing.
Think about it.
PS – Whatever you are thinking right now just bubbled up from your subconscious/unconscious/collective unconscious database of programs. It’s now in “The Window” of your awareness, where you can act on the thoughts, or not. But even your action is based on what is in your programming. No foolin.’ 🙂
Thanks for sharing the free report
I read it and I have a question for you
What is the difference between the 4th Dimension process and Visualisation where you see everything through your eyes.
Hi Mohammed. They are completely different. A visualization means you are still separate; the Fourth Dimension means you have merged and morphed into the energy field and being of your desire. You are it.
I have seen many of these self help gurus like Bob Proctor & Joe Vitale talk about this subconscious mind and how it doesn’t allow us to get what we want due to a program. They all tell this but dont show a way to erase it. I have bought many clearing programs from Joe vitale too. But have shown very little results. Now Joe you are saying you have given the process. I have already read your book. you say go to fourth dimension( m sure many wont know how except for you) and do the visualization. Now how the hell do i go to this 4th dimension? and i hope this message is not moderated and i get a clear answer.
Hi Arhit. I offer ways to get clear all the time, in free books, on this blog, and more. You have to apply them, though. And reaching the Fourth Dimension is a matter of looking behind the words you typed in your comment.
I was in doubt on writing a comment. So here i am…:-) Through this reaction i want to thank you for all the programs you are sharing. I believe this is a wonderful thing. Five years ago i was homeless and got a chance to live in a stable on a farm in Holland. It was miserable. At least, that was my perception. The farmer was charging me way too much rent and i didn’t know how to pay him. One evening i broke down, fell on the floor crying and screaming. I literally grabbed the floor with my teeth. Then suddenly i heard music. Music coming from inside the room i was in. I didn’t turn on any music before. The music came from a statue of the mother mary standing on a closet. It wasn’t mine and i never before payed any attention to it. It turned out to be a wind up statue-thing (don’t know how to describe it), but i didn’t wind it up obviously. It started to play by itself. Instantly i was out of my screaming and crying state and was in wonder. Then there was this silence. After that i never again felt this silent intensity. The tears were gone and as if in a trance i opened the laptop i borrowed (to find a job) an opened my e-mail and there was an e-mail from you. I didn’t know who you were, but it was there. An e-mail talking about the attract money now book. I read the e-mail and searched for you on youtube and watched some videos of you telling about you being homeless and became a self made millionaire. This was exactly what i needed at that moment. That same evening i looked at more videos and downloaded an audiobook from Neville Goddard. I went to sleep stating my first intention and i woke up the next morning feeling like another person. From then on everything started to change and till this day on i keep reading books from you, Dyer, Goddard, Robbins, Tracy, Hill and so on. I am not a millionaire, yet! But from that certain evening it keeps on building and i am now almost debt free. Before i became homeless i was an actor, director in theatre. Had lots of work an experience. I don’t want to go back there as a full time job, but still have a passion for it. So, i created my own program combining theatre and self help. Often people do not know how to act like you already have it, feel the emotion you want to feel, how do you choose it, how do you physically erase your programs? I already use it during acting workshops i sometimes give and it lifts people up. I am still developing it but made a (try out) promotional video. Maybe you want to take a look at it? https://vimeo.com/63554975
Can you tell me what you think abou the idea? It will mean a lot to me to hear from you. Anyway thank you for everything! Grtz Vincent
Hi Joe, i posted a comment this morning. It was a personal story/ experience. Now i don’t see it anymore. Maybe it has something to do with the link i inserted? This link didn’t have any commercial purpose. I hope you can retrieve it…
O i’m sorry. It was awaiting moderation. My impacient self…
This is one of the juiciest and very thought provoking article. I am a long time follower of your works.
Several years ago, you had touched this topic quoting Leo hartong.
Along with this suspense of which thought arises, another extremely important factor is the feeling good or interest factor. That too is out of our control. You resonate very much with Sam Harris…I am so much indebted to you Dr Joe…
