Somehow the play (and then movie) Shirley Valentine gave many permission to talk to themselves out loud. In fact, I remember shopping in a grocery store in the late 80’s and I was talking to myself about the crackers I would buy. When I looked up a man was watching me (with a smile on his face) and I said “Shirley Valentine” and he burst into a wide grin and said, “Wasn’t that a great movie?” I believe that movie did more for understanding the expanded mindset than all the self-help books to date at that time.

We were all born into a body that people used to believe was a “blank slate” waiting to be written upon. Now we know that we actually move into a body that has some patterns and experiences stored in it already. Every experience your parents (and their parents, and their parents – back 4-7 generations) had was stored in a cell in their body for future reference.
