Memetics is the study of ideas and concepts viewed as “living” organisms, capable of reproduction and evolution in the collective human consciousness. A meme, therefore, can be called an idea virus; or, any idea, belief, behavior, or style that spreads from person to person within a culture and becomes commonly held to be a truth. Any infectious idea is a type of meme.
There are minor memes, like fashion fads; and there are major memes like religious beliefs (such as reincarnation) or scientific theories (such as evolution) that underlie whole cultural belief systems. These major memes are called meta memes. A meta meme can sometimes be called a paradigm or a core belief.
Core beliefs determine how a person sees himself or herself and her or his place in the big scheme of things. Most often, these core beliefs also determine the results that show up in a person’s life. Since most people do not ever examine their core beliefs or ask the most important questions of all: where did they come from? and do they serve me?, they are often frustrated in their attempts to create success.
Understanding how memes shape your vision of self and how ideas infect your mind with either supportive or limiting ways of looking at, and believing in, your ability to create success and live a life of meaning and purpose, is the most important thing you can do to become self-aware and self-actualized.
I call myself a “meme therapist” because I teach people to replace limiting beliefs with liberating ones; and I intentionally go about infecting the collective human consciousness with empowering idea viruses.
My personal coaching is designed to give my clients the power to not only be freed from restrictive cultural indoctrination; but also to become empowered to create, for themselves, powerful, liberating mindsets that create prosperity, purpose and personal fulfillment.
