Hi, Robert Shields here writing to you from the U.K.
Thank Your Unconscious
You’re Not Constipated
Unless you are already aware of my theories regarding the
power of the Unconscious Mind to protect you, I would wager a
lot of money you have no idea what I am talking about. Am I
Ok, if that is the case let me explain a few simple facts
about the Unconscious Mind (sometimes referred to as the
Firstly let me say that it is one of the functions of the
Unconscious Mind to protect you from harm and try to keep you
The Fight or Flight Response is part of that function.
The Fight or Flight Response
This is a primitive instinct that once protected our
forefathers from danger when their lives were threatened. In
those far off days, to run away from danger was just as
acceptable as facing the danger. In those days, nobody would
condemn you for protecting your life by running away in a
But today, of course, to run away, especially if you are in
the military and involved in a battle, is seen as unacceptable.
And that in itself can be the cause of massive amounts of
And yet, the primitive Reaction of ‘fight or flight’ is
still part of our survival instinct. In other words, our
instinct is to either face a danger or run away from it. To do
this in the most effective way, the Unconscious Mind mobilises
out body by pumping adrenalin into the blood stream and a dozen
other functions that enable us to fight or run away.
Other Survival Tactics
There are also many other survival tactics that the
Unconscious Mind employs to ensure you live a long life. And
one of them is to change the five senses to what is acceptable
to you personally.
An example being the sense of sight. When we fall truly in
love, we do not see the true body and nature of the person we
love. If we did, it would conflict with our feelings.
Also, when we look at ourselves in a mirror, we are not
seeing exactly what is being reflected back at us, but what our
Unconscious Mind believes is acceptable.
Some years ago research was carried out with number of
overweight women and it was found that every one of them would
see herself either thinner or fatter than she really was when
looking into a full length mirror.
The sense of taste is another one that is changed by our
Unconscious Mind. If it did not, we would all taste everything
as others do and that would be, to say the least, boring.
A smoker will testify to the changes in the sense of smell.
He or she finds the smell of cigarette smoke acceptable but to
a non smoker, the smell is foul. There are certain exceptions
to this, but that answers to why that is are another
So what has constipation got to do with the Unconscious
Well, if you have not already guessed the answer, it is
simply that the sense of smell is changed so that you, and only
you, find the smell of your excrement or flatulence acceptable.
To others it is not a pleasant smell. But if the Unconscious
Mind did not change the smell, we would all be avoiding going
to the toilet for as long as possible and, of course, we would
all be constipated.
Not exactly what the Unconscious Mind would like you to be
if it is to keep you in full health, wouldn’t you agree?
