The other night I was watching the Top Gun movie that was released in 1986.

In the movie, when Tom Cruise achieved a victory during a Top Gun training mission and when he shot down three enemy planes in actual air combat in the movie, he requested a “fly-by” from the head air traffic controller, called the “Air Boss.” The fly-by, was a deviation from “normal behavior” completed when landing an airplane.

In both instances, the Air Boss, responded, “Negative, Ghost Rider the pattern is full.”

In both instances, Tom Cruise ignores the Air Boss and does the fly-by.

The fly-by sequences made me think about how the Air Boss in the movie is very similar to your subconscious mind. Your subconscious mind is your very own Air Boss stores and loops through your own behavioral patterns that have been programmed in your subconscious mind based on both positive and negative experiences you have had in your lifetime.  Your subconscious is full of your own behavior patterns.

So when want to change one of your own behavioral patterns, do your own fly-by, have some fun, do something out of the ordinary,  your very own Air Boss in your subconscious mind is likely to respond, “negative, the pattern is full.”

So how do change your own behavioral patterns and get the Air Boss in your subconscious mind to allow you to do your own fly-by?

It starts with creating appropriate “declarations.”
