Episode 132: Confirmation Bias 2.0
Today, I am diving into part two of the barriers to belief series and unpacking confirmation bias. Before I get started on this concept, I share some of the massive changes coming to the Alpha Academy. I want to give you the chance to get in on some of the action before everything goes live. Even though things may look different, the foundation of my training is the same; to help you see the world as it is and not through the lens of conditioning. Last week, I explored correlation and causation and the fact that we almost always confuse the two. We accept things as facts even though they are simply the stories we tell ourselves time and again. This is where confirmation bias, today’s topic, comes into play. It does not prove any truths but instead reaffirms the tales we believe are real. Even though we know that circumstance is neutral and the data is always there, once we relate it to confirmation bias, our circumstances are no longer objective but appear as a means to support pre-existing beliefs. When these paradigms and stories prevent us from seeing the world as it is, they act as a prison. While in many ways confirmation bias can hold us back, if we apply our elevated awareness, we can see it for what it is and move past it. We don’t have to accept stories as truth. It is possible to free yourself from the condition of the mind and the images that occur behind your eyes. Rather than having conditioning driving the vehicle that is your life, it is possible for you and the truth to take the driver’s seat once again!
