The start of my reconditioning journey.
Charmed by the idea of inhibiting a thought until it materializes and becomes a part of who I am, I was listening to Rendina Marie speaking about how she transformed her entire life, by changing the habitual thought patterns she was functioning on.
This was the most stimulating thing to hear. The freedom to remodel and re-design myself however I wanted, was a liberating realization to me. My mind imagined myself as a mound of soft clay, that I could shape into anything. I was excited! I was thinking about the 35-year-old version of me who had successfully imprinted and programmed all these new habits, behaviors, and patterns successfully. Future me was fire! I was happy that present me was finding what she wanted.
That day, we had discovered we could condition and recondition the self at will. The months that followed, were full of affirmation sticky notes, audio mantras, and re-aligning music. We were learning how to hold our focus and harness our own energy.
A lot of the happiness was around finally reconnecting with myself in a way that made sense. I could feel my own presence and recognise the different corners of me. I was so happy with this progress. I no longer felt like a stranger inside my own skin.
In this blog, I write about all my personal experiences with doing self-work and speak on all the reconditioning practices in my own life, especially those that have made the biggest change. This is where it all started. I had a mug of coffee in one hand listening to Rendina speaking on her own experiences— I stumbled over her work on Youtube. That was the start of my own reconditioning journey.
