YOU ARE MASTERING THE PUZZLE PIECE "MY FILTER"!
MY FILTER - IN SHORT
My Filter is dysfunctional when my Ego brings up a Cold Case. A “Cold Case” is when my emotions trigger an extreme reaction, that the situation I live does not require. This is happening in my head, not around me.
My Ego loves Cold Cases as they prove its point this could become a major issue, plus it gets all my attention! My Ego will keep bringing back my Cold Case until I no longer can stand it and decide to solve it.
With the support of my Ego, I do have the strength and courage to solve my Cold Case - so it disappears forever!
MY FILTER - IN FULL
While I cannot ignore being aware of the voice in my head, my filter is a very discrete - though essential - piece of whom I am. Being conscious of it and using it more, does help me find the reaction that suits me.
My filter is also the vehicle I have to go back and forth between my brain, my emotions and my body. It is the way to check how I feel emotionally and physically, as an input to add to those provided by
my Ego. For instance, while my Ego is warning me, how do I feel? Is this coherent with the danger signals I receive, or disconnected? Also, how am I physically (ex. out of breath, with a node in my stomach, etc.)? My feeling and physical sensations are complementary information my filter uses to set the best path for me, at a given point in time.
The filter in my head at times delivers what it believes is the best option for me, instinctively. When I am dialoguing with someone, there is no time to sit down and think how I should react next: I just keep going. In other cases, I have time to think about a situation that may happen in the future, and anticipate how I would like to handle it.
My filter does not understand negation. "Not to" is a concept invented to communicate. It works with language, but it is not something my brain understands. "Not to" think about something is a concept that does not exist in my brain (ex. don’t think of a banana, and the image pops up!). Accordingly, if I wish to make a conscious decision that my brain understands and remembers, I need to phrase it in a grammatically positive sentence.
My filter is the place where I decide to listen to the warnings from my Ego, or take a different path. This can be a conscious or unconscious choice.
When I am tired, had a bad day, etc. then my filter tends to follow the guidance from my Ego - as at any point in time my Ego is full of energy while I may not. Often, I take a short cut and skip checking how I feel and am physically, to follow the stronger leader - my Ego! Being aware that I may not be lucid in these moments is key, so I can take a step back and course correct (or not, but as a conscious decision).
