The reticular activating system (RAS) is a group of neurons located just above where the spinal cord is attached to the brain, also called the brain stem. It acts as the gatekeeper of information between most sensory systems and the conscious mind. It maintains behavioral arousal, consciousness, and motivation.

The RAS is like a magnet to your life through your thoughts. It receives input from the spinal cord, sensory pathways, thalamus, and cortex and sends messages out to the nervous system via the hypothalamus which in turn mediates our behavior. These behaviors are largely subconscious based on our personal belief system.

Limiting beliefs

We all carry limiting beliefs about ourselves and parts of our life. Once your limiting beliefs become your expectation your RAS will spend the rest of your life working to meet that expectation. You will only find more of what you expect to find, and your results will never exceed your expectations. That’s why it is crucial to inundate your belief system with a new and positive belief system that will grow to be the dominant beliefs as the old ones grow weak and less dominant.

Siblings and parents often have the same old beliefs. Think about their actions for a moment or watch their reactions and you’ll begin to notice. Take time to consider what you have learned about money, relationships, and what you have believed was possible for you in the past or what you have known as feeling “familiar”. This may also be a reflection of what you may not believe is possible for you. Know you can change anything you want to. It doesn’t have to limit your life today.

Think about what was said to you or in front of you when you were a child. Our parents’ beliefs and reactions are often adopted by us and are how we have created our own lives. Pay attention to what you say and do around your own children because they are listening and absorbing those actions as part of their own developing belief system.

Whatever The Mind Can Conceive And Believe, The Mind Can Achieve

The conscious mind can only have one focus at a time. The subconscious mind can multi-focus. You can program your subconscious for anything. It’s not just will power but focus with emotion and feeling to seed it into RAS and memory. The reticular activating system is a net that filters out the relevant and non relevant of what aspects hold MEANING for you at any given moment. Your conscious mind cannot process everything at once so the RAS filters for you. It’s the relevance to the impact that is most important. 

This is the example of suddenly noticing the kind of car you want to own everywhere you go. The RAS creates the impact for you like a price or value. Which do you notice? Either way your RAS drives and reinforces. 

It can be a double edged sword. The life we have is what we reinforce about our business, money, and relationships. What we expect to happen will happen. The RAS proves us right when we have no filter that we have directed it with. It believes what we believe to prove us right or wrong. If you feel you can prosper in a bad economy then you will. If not, you won’t. The RAS can take over your life, good or bad. The RAS notices what you believe.

The Good News

The good news is the person who reinforces the positives, despite the differences, will benefit from them.  Results within your life, including those with your child will be reinforced by your beliefs, which can also limit what you create from what you BELIEVE you can do. The RAS wants to prove it to be accurate so it puts more of it into your box. 

Take Action

What one or two things can you do every day to create your new desired life? 

Your RAS must be on board. Memories are created by emotions that bind them to the connection to something, so FEEL it and embed it in your subconscious mind. Add colors to your images whenever possible since the RAS absorbs colored images more profoundly. Your RAS will now begin to see them as your truth and do everything it can to help create your desires.

  1. Write it
  2. Read it
  3. Feel it as if it’s already happened (with color).
  4. Take action. Use the power of consistency to lead the subconscious mind on. 

How do you know? Look at the reflexion of the results in your life now. Be patient, and keep looking for the positive signs of change.  Actions create results. Acknowledge that no positive action is ever too small. It all makes a difference, and you are in control of your own mind to make the differences you desire.

A step-by-step method to alleviate your child’s symptoms of autism.

Underlying toxins, pathogens and coinfections cause inflammation on the brain which causes the damage which creates the symptoms of autism. These symptoms in your child can range from inability to focus and learn to their full potential, sleep disorders, irritability and even aggression.

The good news is it is reversible. I have utilized this successfully with my own son even after I was told it was not possible, but I forged on because of my love for him.

I now have over 18 years of autism research to share with you to help simplify the process and get you real results. We work with all of them in my programs, naturally.

Need help knowing what to do to make your child's life a better one? 

As a mother of an autistic child, I understand the worry, frustration, and fear that comes with the diagnosis... and the hopelessness that can stem from failed solutions. Please hear me when I say:

You do not have to settle for behavioral therapies and medications that “manage” symptoms (at best) for the rest of time. There is another way.

In the Naturally Recovering Autism Membership Program, I break down everything A-Z that worked for my son—and thousands of my clients' children—so you can finally, FINALLY, celebrate a solution that works.

This is for informational purposes only and is not meant to diagnose or treat. Every child’s level of recovery is different. No two people are the same. It is never implied that all children will have the same outcome. Results are all based on individual biology and the work that is done. This process takes time and various steps, effort and resources need to be weighed. Our programs are intended to help you become more knowledgeable and guide you to help bring your child a better quality of life, whatever that may be. We want to help by giving great content, direction and strategies that move you forward. Nothing on this page or any of our websites is a promise or guarantee of results or future outcomes. The results on this page and any of our websites are not typical or promised. In fact, there will be people who purchase this and other programs and never put the work into implementing the strategies taught and therefore will achieve little to no results. Our more detailed earnings disclaimer, privacy policy, and terms and conditions for this program and website can be accessed via the links below. We hold ourselves (and you) to a high standard of integrity. We are cheering you on every step of the way.
