The Reticular Activation System (mx)

The Reticular Activation System (RAS) was first introduced by Anthony Robbins before the turn of the century. The RAS, however, shouldn’t be confused with the part of the brain known as the Reticular Activating System, which is a place where your thoughts, internal feelings, and outside influences converge. They are, however, related.

The RAS is a filter that’s applied to the staggering amount of data that gets picked up by your five senses. This filter works 24/7. It is, in fact, the only thing keeping you from being overwhelmed by the 2 billion bits of information passing through your sensory organs each second.

The RAS essentially “decides for you” exactly what you will consciously give your attention to at any given moment. It then filters out the remaining data and transfers it over to the Inner Mind. It’s somewhat of a reference collector that directs your focus and shapes your beliefs.

When you set a goal, you communicate to your RAS that anything associated with that goal is important to you. Your RAS then goes to work bringing to your attention anything associated with that goal.
