Basic Psychic Countermeasures: Belief System Cleanse

Self HelpBasic psychic countermeasures by Robert Bruce. Most people refuse to see, to hear, to realize, because this conflicts with their paradigms, with their innate conceptions of reality.

Note: These countermeasures are extremely basic. They only contain the bare bones of what is necessary to use them. To understand the principles behind these countermeasures, please get a copy of 'Practical Psychic Self-Defence'. Note: Neg. = Negative inorganic being or bad spirit of any variety.

Belief systems, and belief system conceptual filters, are huge and immensely important related subjects. I am planning to write a book just on this one subject.

People often wonder how I have got so far in what I do. They wonder how I seem to know so much about esoteric metaphysical matters. The answer is way too simple for most people; so simple that they just don't get it. But that is the way of things. Mind you, I did get a little help and advice along the way, from a very high level, i.e., my higher self.

All knowledge is available to everyone. But most people refuse to see, to hear, to realize, because this conflicts with their paradigms, with their innate conceptions of reality. And there are none so blind as those who will not see. One must get back to basics, and by so doing to broaden ones conceptual horizons.

The method, if it can be called such a thing, is absolute honesty with your own true self. Know yourself, and to your own self be true. Discard everything not gained via personal experience. Do not take anything as read. Question everything and find out for yourself by doing and experimenting.

But this is a very difficult thing to do. We are surrounded by opinions and these sink into us, into our conceptual belief system filters, and these shape all our foundation beliefs; if we let them. This we must resist profoundly.

Look at everything with the eyes of a child: be open minded, non judgmental, simple, unfettered by the beliefs and opinions and shackles of others.

Realize that everything, every sense and perception and intuition and vision and every bit of information gathered outside the physical body, whether during OBE or altered state, must pass through the belief system filters in order to be stored as a recognizable memory in the physical brain.

If one tries to download something inspirationally, or through intuition, deliberately or otherwise, say a round shaped idea, that contradicts the belief system filters, the result is that a conical shaped idea gets stored as a memory. This is recognizable, but does not make any sense to the conscious mind. But it is not the truth.

Instead of an abstract idea, as above, take for example partisan New Age beliefs about the nature, structure and functions of the spirit world above us. What if it were not actually like this at all? How would high-level information, contrary to partisan belief, be affected by this contradiction? Could it download at all? How would it be changed? And indeed it will be changed as it passes through the myriad conceptual belief system filters we all contain.

We strive and plead and beg for the truth, and I assure you it is given to us all at every turn. But we do not allow ourselves to see it. You see the majority of us are happy and content with our spiritual blindness. Even though much of it does not work, its comfortable, so we stick with it. This is called Maya, the illusion of the physical reality we all share. And there are none so blind as those who refuse to see.

Make a list of everything you believe in. Apply total honesty to this list. Keep everything you have personal experience with. Discard the rest, but remain open minded. If, for example, you have not experienced OBE, be open to experiencing it. Put all the stuff you have not proven personally into a basket of 'possibilities'. And transfer these possibilities carefully into the 'real stuff' basket as experience is gained. You will be surprised at how much stuff will never be moved, and will eventually end up in the trash at life's end.

After one has done ones best to purge his or her belief system filters, real knowledge comes through the realization process. A progressive number of small realizations (like pieces of jigsaw) flow into the mind. This is punctuated by progressively larger and larger realizations. This is the well-known road to enlightenment; which is described in many different ways in the world today.

Several years ago, about 1989ish, at about 10pm, I put my family and house to bed and went to meditate by the fire in my living room. I turned off the light and walked to my chair, enjoying the cheerful light from my fire. I got half way across the room and a voice spoke to me. Clear, objective voice, sounding like someone was standing right next to me. With the right microphone I could have recorded it.

It was the most beautiful voice I have ever heard; it was a richly eloquent male voice. It spoke to me of many things, while I humbly stood, moist-eyed and head bowed before my fire.

The most important thing this being told me was how to progress beyond my current level. I was stuck and nothing was working. I was trying to see beyond normal reality, beyond Maya, but kept running into walls everywhere I looked. The voice told me why this was so, and what I could do about it. I was advised to dismantle my belief system (to remove my self imposed limitations) and to create a fresh one, based solely on personal experience, and logic based on personal experience, and many of the things I have said above.

The next day, I made a huge list of my beliefs and applied this advice. I was profoundly honest and by the time I had finished the list containing my true beliefs was small indeed. The things I knew were true included: healing, angels, clairvoyance, OBE, most psychic abilities, and a few other things; all of which I had sound personal experience with. But a great many things were not included simply because I lacked the personal experience to validate them. I went into something I can only liken to spiritual shock. It took quite some time for my belief system to settle down, and the temptation to load all my old secure beliefs back in was strong. But I was hard on myself and succeeded. In time this settled to become my foundation belief system, upon which I would build as my life unfolded.

Ever since then I have argued and questioned just about everything. I take nothing as read. Because of this, most people have found me disagreeable, because I question their heartfelt beliefs. I did and still do this as nicely as possible, but it still seems to offend people. I do not mean to offend. I am what I am and I know what I know. Its not much, admittedly, and I consider myself to know comparatively little about this reality we all share. But what I do have is solid (solid to me anyway) , although some things are subject to change without notice. What with the realization process being what it is, new facts and ideas are dropping in all the time. But I am slowly weeding out the errors and upgrading my conceptual belief system filters as best I can.

I take an idea and explore it, test it, live it. If it has merit it grows. If not it dies and I discard it. My lifelong motto is that one has to try out 100 crazy ideas before one uncovers a single gem. And if one does not entertain the crazy ideas, the gems will remain hidden forever. And man oh man have I tried some crazy ideas out.

Just because one has a strict belief system does not mean that one cannot try out new ideas, even crazy ones. Ideas, crazy or otherwise, are not heartfelt beliefs. But the gems one uncovers and proves have the potential to become true beliefs; even if everyone else disagrees.

ruleOptimism is a strategy for making a better future. Because unless you believe that the future can be better, it's unlikely you will step up and take responsibility for making it so. If you assume that there's no hope, you guarantee that there will be no hope. If you assume that there is an instinct for freedom, there are opportunities to change things, there is a chance you may contribute to making a better world. The choice is yours.” -- Noam Chomsky

Practical Psychic Self-Defense
Practical Psychic Self-Defense by Robert Bruce

It's not all angels and light beings out there aiding our enlightenment.

Think of this book as a supernatural expose for the beginner, a survival guide for those living the nightmare of being influenced by unfriendly spirit beings and forces of darkness, says Bruce. "I have lived through everything I describe and have spent decades searching for ways to survive and create spiritual peace and quiet for myself."
