Use Your "RAS" Wisely … Or It Will Use You

Manifestation. 
 
What is it really?
 
Is it vibrating at a certain frequency to where what you want in life automatically shows up?
 
Is it willing things into existence that you don’t currently have?
 
Is it affirming things over and over again, such that they magically appear in your path?
 
Maybe.  
 
I don’t know about those mysteries. And I’m not sure I want to know about something quite so mystical.  
 
I prefer to understand some science behind the process, and then follow those rules.
 
How about you?  
 
Would you like to understand the Art of Manifesting at a more grounded level?
 
It may be as simple as programming your Reticular Activating System.
  
 
 
Huh?! 
 
Reticular Activating System (RAS). 
 
Google it. It is a little piece of neuroscience.   
 
Simply put, RAS is your “attention brain filter.” 
 
If we did not have this in our brains, everything in the world would get our attention.  
 
We would be in a state of overwhelm times a billion. Our brains would pop as if microwaved on high for 30 minutes.
 
This sophisticated filter deftly filters out all information, from all of our senses – all of the noises, conversations, and things we may see, hear, or feel – and ONLY lets IN what we tell it is IMPORTANT to us.   
 
 
We literally program the filter with what we want to let through.
 
How? 
 
By what we hold in our minds as important. 
 
By what we think about most of the time. 
 
By our goals, ambitions, dreams, what we love, and what we want. Yet also by our fears, our worries, our doubts, our anger, our resentments, and our obsessions with what we don’t want. 
 
These are our stories. These are our visions.
 
We see, hear and feel what our RAS allows us to. Not much else gets through.
 
If we are afraid something will happen to us, we tend to see evidence that it will happen. Therefore, we are led to do things that lead to our fears. 
 
Conversely, if we believe we will achieve something, we tend to see evidence that we will achieve it. Therefore, we are led to do things that lead to our success.
 
Both programs are self-fulfilling prophecies. What we hold in our hearts, we are led to prove and make true.
 
It’s not about manifesting something out of nothing.  
 
It is about seeing what we may not have seen before – a path, a set of tools, or bread crumbs – that lead us exactly to where we DON’T want to go or DO want to go.  
 
Our RAS has no conscience. It does not care what happens to us. It is just a filter. Use it wisely or it uses you.
 
The Work Is Worth It,

P.S. My blogs are, for me, a conversation. I rant for a bit and then … if so inspired, you respond. Your comments close the loop of conversation. They let me know I was heard. They let me know I contributed something … or not. I encourage you to close the loop … or open a new one and say something.

Great summary of the RAS and how it works; thanks Richard. I knew about the RAS previously but often forget to program it. The RAS is now front and centre of my mind. Now I need to do the work to decide what I want to program it with.

Great synopsis of the RAS. I have definitely experienced how this works for the better and for the worse. Sometimes in the midst of despair, your vision becomes your lifeline. With that intense focus and activation of the RAS, it can free you to see your own authentic self and allow you to become who you really at your core. Thank you for this

“Consciousness is THE ONE and ONLY REALITY.”
-Neville Goddard

Great post Richard. I hear you.

The RAS filters through like 400 million bits of data per second to find around 2,000 bits that it gives to your conscious mind to perceive reality.

Perception is reality…

We program our RAS through millions of visions or stories that either empower us or disempower us.

Program your RAS to manifest a life that is always something transcending your wildest dreams!

Great article. I couple of months ago during a goals training call I heard Richard reference the RAS and have been watching and reading about it since.

Here’s a wonderfully example of our RAS in play. When I heard Richard make reference to the RAS, I made If mental note of looking into it.

Later that week I was listening to a podcast with Richard and Donna Weise. While discussing manifestation she referenced the RAS. It immediately struck a cord. Now I had probably listened to that interview 4-5 times previously and the mentioning of the RAS didn’t register. This time, my RAS picked up the mentioning of the RAS because it was programmed in. :-)

Richard, what a profound, yet simple explanation. I pulled Mach ll off the shelf last week. In my mind this is the underlying current behind self-motivation.

I like the RAS versus hocus pocus. It all may work the same, but it’s nice (for me) to have science back it up. It’s true! When you buy a new car, what do you see driving around? Same make & color. We got a (new to us) cat. Now I see the same cat in ads and even the neighbor cat looks like him. I need to be careful with my vision boards! They come true, whether I have met the goals or not! Even without viewing them every day. I need to revise my vision boards to be more practical: rank advancement – the “goodies / rewards” will follow….

What are you thankful for this year? I am thankful that Kimmy and I have our health. Thankful that we have the wealth to be able to come to a place like Sanoviv for two weeks. Thankful for the decisions we have made along the way to lift us to this level. Thankful for the mentors who influenced us. 🙌🏼

All people at the top of their game. All highly influential. Role models. Life Changers. Decision Makers. Leaders.

We all know it takes a certain amount of Personal Development to get to the top. It takes courage, charisma, work, consistency, persistence and a willingness to become better this year than you were last year...

Have you noticed how often the leaders in the highest position of influence demonstrate that they quit personal development years ago?
