Finished the first exercise in Quantum Jumping 1
Well, I just completed the first exercise in the Quantum Jumping program. Here are some of my thoughts about it.
First and foremost, each of these exercises are basically a type of guided meditation. With that being said, if you’ve never done a guided meditation before, then it would be beneficial for you to go through it more than once. It wouldn’t be out of the question to go through it at least a half dozen times or so.
The first guided meditation is designed to let you go back into your history to some point in your life that, assuming you could change it, might have been for the better if it didn’t turn out the way it did. This is a very common process with several different methods of self improvement. It bears strong resemblance to a couple different techniques from NLP.
You’re basically playing a mental game of “what if” when you go through this meditation. You take a situation from your past that didn’t goes as well as you would have liked it and imagine it turning out the way you would have preferred it to take place. This meditation takes place while you’re at an Alpha brainwave pattern. Being at this level helps remove the emotional impact of the original situation to allow you to observe it objectively so you can clearly decide on a better outcome, and since you are at Alpha level, you can bypass a lot of the filtering mechanisms your subconscious mind uses to block out changes to the way your mind thinks.
All in all, a very basic and common meditation to work through. The biggest issues I have with this meditation is that it seems rushed while following along, the impression that he’s using several different processes to get you to the initial Alpha level, and the fact that he keeps switching from statements he wants you to repeat to yourself to start the process of reprogramming your subconscious and statements/descriptions that advise you of what you’re actually doing.
I just don’t feel that this meditation script was optimized very much for effectiveness. I can see a lot of room for improvement, but it’s still a decent meditation that can be effective in helping you start down the process of reprogramming your subconscious to work the way you’d prefer.
