‘Until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life and you will call it ‘fate’.’ ⁃ Carl Jung
We live most of our lives on autopilot. The autonomous nervous system directs our breathing, our digestion, our elimination and other processes essential for life. Its decisions are governed by the predictive capability of the brain, which in turn depends on the quality of sensory input it gets from the senses, the state of the brain itself e.g anxious brains don’t process well, and the nature of the ‘programs’ its running.
These ‘programs’ are derived from mindsets, perspectives, unpleasant things that happened earlier in life, unpleasant things that were witnessed and perhaps copied without thinking etc. The programs play a very big part in determining whether the body deploys the parasympathetic or sympathetic nervous system function response.
In some cases, these programs may result in self-sabotaging behavior. That is, behavior that goes opposite to your goals, for which you don’t have explanation for, but are actually deeply rooted in your past.
