As a result, this faulty thinking will pervade all of your inner dialogue and strongly affect all of your decision making, not necessarily positively.As a demonstration of negative consequences, let’s say you find yourself in a lukewarm relationship with someone you don’t truly love just as you are approaching 30 and your gut instincts start telling you something is wrong.However, since your gut instincts come from subconscious thought you shift into conscious thought to try to understand your feelings. Your conscious thought is where all of your jumbled up, completely messed up and mixed up thoughts lie and then they start looking for rational sense out of things.And this is what happens- you were told at a young age that you should be married by 30, so your inner dialogue tells you that you must get married, your gut instinct battles that and tells you something is wrong, your inner dialogue steps in and tells you how awful it would be to be single and unloved at an old age, you cringe in fear, but still your instincts are on red alert, then your inner dialogue says that you don’t deserve true happiness and who’s to say what true happiness is anyway, then you realize that in your gut you are unhappy, but your mind tricks you into thinking that you are wrong for feeling this way since your partner is such a great person with a good personality… but surely it must be me, and I’m surely guilty of thinking such bad thoughts about such a great person as my partner…However, in many cases, conscious thought fails us miserably.You see, as a byproduct of our inner dialogue, conscious thought is rife with the misconceptions, biases, and lies that we tell ourselves. such thoughts as “I’m not good enough”, “that outcome would be terrible” and “things have to be this way” are all things we tell ourselves and then those distortions affect the rest of our inner dialogue detrimentally.
These scams are a double whammy for the victim because they are affected both fiscally and emotionally.
Did you try to rationalize it, come up with reasons why your gut feeling was wrong, that everything was actually quite perfect and you were destined to be with your partner, that he or she is just the embodiment of perfection? Either that relationship is long dead and over with or you are still in it, feeling worse than ever. There are different levels of conscious thought and subconscious thought, but let’s just focus on conscious and subconscious as the focus of this article.
Which is probably how you found this site in the first place. Subconscious thought deals with the thought process below the surface of that which we are willing to admit to ourselves- this is the world of dreams, gut instincts and sudden, creative inspiration.
Once the target reciprocates and trust has been established, the scam usually escalates to the thief’s unveiling of a problem involving money.
Typical scenarios include the request for funds to be able to travel to meet you in-person or to help the thieve’s sick relative.
When you've whittled down your options and are stuck at a crossroads, getting in touch with your intuition can help.
