Back when I was doing my coaching program I got a great question from Art Jonak about his friend. The friend was only 32 years old, but was certain he was going to develop Alzheimer’s.
Because his father has Alzheimer's, this person is manifesting this disease because he thinks it's inevitable that he'll end up "just like his dad one day."
Art wrote on the Forum, “We all know this does NOT have to be so for my friend!!!! He doesn't yet believe in the power of the sub-conscious (or un-conscious) mind. So, I'm working with him on this. Changing his way of thinking.
“Here's where I'd like your insight: I read an article in ‘Time’ magazine about a product he could take right now that is proven to assist in the prevention of developing Alzheimer’s. I could recommend this product to him. But I haven't. Here's why . . .
“By taking the product, would he be programming his sub-conscious mind into believing that, 'Without this product I will develop Alzheimer’s'? By taking this product every day, is it possible that he could actually reinforce his negative programming rather than break the pattern? What would you do?”
Now Art got about 15 replies in the comments section about what he should do. Not one of them was the answer I would give. Which is...
Because Art ignores a critical issue here. Which is that you can’t drag people across the finish line. Which is exactly what this sounded like to me. I have come to the belief that until people are vibrating at a certain consciousness, they just aren’t open to many things. So what do you think?
Am I the Grinch who stole Christmas, or is Art the new Mother Theresa who saved it? What would you do?
