Chapter IX

1. The Importance of Vigilance and Repetition in Model Building. A key element in forming of a new male/female inner model is repetition. Discovering and fleshing out a model is not enough. Our minds are influenced by the force in nature called “hysteresis.”  In physical elements it manifests as a sort of molecular memory. When steel is heated and bent, if it is not held in its new shape, as it cools it will return to its original shape. A closer­to­home example is seen in straightening crooked teeth. Braces are placed on the ugly teeth. Pressure is applied, increased and maintained over an extended period of time until the “crooked memory” is eliminated. To correct our “crooked mental images” this same sus­tained positive pressure is essential. In time, the new model is securely operating on the subconscious level. The more whole the new model incorporated, the more aligned the subconscious is then to the superconscious soul Self.
