Do you know about the power of your RAS?
I learned about the RAS in a year of huge upheaval. Using it helped me create positive transformation in the midst of heartbreak and big challenges.
RAS stands for Reticular Activating Device.
It’s a part of your brain that scans your world to find information most relevant and useful to you.
Ever buy a new car and suddenly you see lots of the same make and color on the roads?
Have you been in a crowded party with the blurred hubbub of voices all around and clearly heard your own name spoken across the room?
Your RAS is filtering for those things- your make of car and your name- as information that matters to you.
Your Reticular Activating System is responsible for filtering through the sensory and information overload all around you to help you focus on what’s important.
In a natural world, the RAS helps humans survive by guiding us toward food, shelter and allies and away from danger.
Your RAS also helps scan for evidence that reinforces your beliefs.
As Wayne Dyer says, “You will see what you believe.”
If you were to believe:
Christmas is a over-commercialized holiday and empty of meaning
All men (or women) are untrustworthy
All politicians are liars
There is never enough love or money or opportunity to go round
The world is going to hell in a handbasket
You are doomed to be poor or overweight or unlucky in love or life
Your RAS would go hard to work finding evidence for that. (If you were to believe the opposite of any of these beliefs, your RAs would find evidence for that!)
By seeing that abundant evidence you would become more and more sure you were right and that belief would seem more and more true. That could keep you stuck in an unhealthy pattern.
Without awareness, your RAS can help cement unconscious beliefs that may be keeping you small and miserable and stuck - or can just make it much harder to create the changes you want in your life.
Here’s the good and fun news!
You can re-set your RAS. You can set it to look for evidence that supports a new belief that will help you to create any change you want to make.
Resetting your RAS shifts limiting beliefs that may be keeping you stuck.
Shifting beliefs helps you see new possibilities.
Seeing new possibilities gives you hope and inspired action steps toward the life and the positive impact you really want.
Resetting your RAS can help you:
Reach and maintain your ideal weight, enjoy radiant well-being and reverse many illnesses
Create loving relationships with others, with yourself and with the world
Have more energy, money, positive impact, joy and hope for the future
…and so much more!
“What we can or cannot do, what we consider possible or impossible, is rarely a function of our true capability. It is more likely a function of our beliefs about who we are.” ~ Anthony Robbins
