6 Things Your Egg Does to You

As you’ve read in the introduction to Crack Your Egg, your egg is really a web of energy that inhibits your success. Further more, this web can drain your relationships, undermine your health, and limit your emotional well being.

Before you can start “cracking your egg” though, it’s best to know what the egg does to you.

If you remember, the basic trait of your eggshell is that it makes you unaware it even exists. If you don’t even realize it’s there, you won’t be able to start cracking. Therefore, here is a list of 6 things about what your egg does to you that you need to know.

1. Your root limiting beliefs

Man jumping over a hurdleThe origin of your eggshell comes from the experiences that happen in your life.

These include negative or traumatic events, whether large or small. Left untreated, this trauma can slowly evolve and take root as your limiting belief.

You may not notice it. In fact, some times you may even shrug off your negative experiences. But by dismissing them, you leave an unresolved situation that over time accumulates. This accumulation becomes what Henk Schram says as the foundation of your eggshell.

In the 2nd video, Henk Schram shares the danger of your eggshell towards you.

He uses the example of a child who is still very young. While he is still small, this child repeatedly receives the message that his parents award him for what he does – and not for who he is.

That is, his parents loves him artificially instead of unconditionally.

This message can shape a trauma in the child’s mind. He starts to believe that what he does is more important than the person he becomes. You will see how this belief affects the child’s personality as he grows up.

Notice that your negative trauma doesn’t have to be large. There are big traumas such as being in a car accident or those experienced by a recovering war veteran that also shape the eggshell. But in effect, any type of trauma can shape your egg, as this example shows.

2. Your prime worriments

As you live your life, you pick up all kinds of traumas large and small. These add up to your subconscious limiting belief – and ultimately your eggshell.

Your subconscious beliefs affect your prime worriments. These are the things you worry about the most.

Let’s return to the example of the young child. Because his parents award him more for what he does, the child then worries about not doing anything wrong. He tries his best to avoid mistakes to make his parents happy.

I’m feeling that this hits a bit close to home for many people. How many people do you know that try very hard to impress their parents but they always seem to fail?

When you have these inner blockages, you become prone to feeling hurt. It’s natural that your mind gives it’s mental energy to avoid discomforts. These discomforts are the situations that trigger your prime worriments.

However, the more you avoid discomforts, the more you actually attract them into your life. This is the nature of your eggshell, and you will find out why this happens in the next points.

3. Your inner managing policy

As I watch and learn from Henk about how my eggshell shapes my perception of reality, I slowly begin to understand what he means.

I can start to see my root limiting beliefs and the prime worriments they cause. Because I don’t want to worry, I subconsciously avoid situations that lead to uncomfortable feelings.

But, I’ve realized that what I do is actually worry about them all the time. This is what Henk means by my inner managing policy.

Your inner managing policy is comprised of 3 parts:

  1. Your behavior
  2. Your attitude
  3. Your habits

These are the set of traits you display when a certain situation arises. Personally, I keep a certain set of “pre-made decisions” depending on the situation I encounter. I wonder if you have them also?

The danger of having pre-made decisions is that you can become defensive. This is your eggshell in action – it prevents you from fully experiencing what you are living.

For example, if you find yourself in an situation that’s not favorable for you, you will shut yourself out. This causes you to spend precious mental energy to prevent something you don’t want to happen from happening.

Your eggshell keeps your managing policy busy. This is why you find it so hard to be in the situations that are favorable for you. When I realized this myself, I had quite an “A-ha!” moment.

4. Your unnatural focus

As much as the last point made a light turn on inside my head, this point is the one that truly opens it.

If you’re familiar with the Law of Attraction, this is probably the point where it starts to make sense.

Returning to the example of the child, when his inner managing policies are filled with images of not wanting to make mistakes, what happens?

That’s right – he makes mistakes!

This is because the child develops an unnatural focus towards the very things he is trying to avoid. You don’t need to be a believer in the Law of Attraction to accept that you attract what you think about.

So, when you put a distorted focus on negative things, you actually create them even more.

I truly believe this, because I am applying the power of focus to make things I want to happen. I use only positive languages and avoid negative statements to keep me focused on the good.

Just like this tip from Todd Falcone:

You probably have experience that confirms this.

Unfortunately, this type of unnatural focusing is almost automatic if you are unaware of your eggshell. Without proper knowledge of it’s existence, this auto behavior will remain in your subconscious until you make the effort to pull it out of it’s root.

5. Your emotional prison

Naturally, when you develop an automatic behavior you automatically limit yourself. You become unable to express yourself fully, because you are already operating within a set frame of behaviors.

Henk says this as the eggshell becoming a mental, emotional, and even spiritual prison. Because you are unable to freely express your thoughts and feelings, you will be stumped at creating the situation you desire.

I’ve felt like this many times before. There have been occasions – important occasions – where my emotional prison prevented me from being open and honest. It prevented me from living the best experience I knew I could have had.

What’s usually left is a deep sense of regret. Maybe you often feel this way too?

I’m beginning to see that I often let my emotional prison run wild and have it’s way. Luckily though, I’ve been taking conscious effort to step back as an “Observer” and notice if I slip into any automatic behavior.

Step by step, I believe you are making an effort too. There’s one more point to cover, before we come to the conclusion on what to do with our nasty eggshell.

6. Your projected personality

This is the outer manifestation of your inner egg. All the previous layers of your eggshell result in the outermost layer of a projected personality.

What is this personality? You may have heard the term that “people wear masks”, or that people have a “superficial facade”. This is because the personalities they wear are artificial ones – ones that result from the characteristics of their eggshell.

Charade maskI think we all wear projected personalities. In fact, we have multiple personalities – one for each specific situation. But our true personality is the one that lies inside. Henk calls this your “child personality”.

What is unhealthy about a projected personality then? Obviously it’s because you may not be living true to your values – true to your principles. Because you wear a facade, you might actually live based on superficial values.

But the most danger a project personality possesses towards you is that it makes you unaware of your eggshell. Your facade could be lying and saying “everything is alright”, or “it’s better this way”, when in fact you don’t want it like that at all.

If you live like this long enough, you start to believe that what you say is true. And that is the ultimate purpose of the egg – to make you think that staying small is a good idea.

The step you take to break free

The conclusion of this is logical. When you are aware that your egg is there and that is has corrosive effects on your life, the next step is then to ask: how do I crack my egg?

To crack your egg, you need a protocol that allows you to systematically get to the root of the problem. Even more, you need a simple and tangible protocol, one you can apply easily so you focus your energy on the root of the problem (and not on figuring out how to use the tool!).

This protocol must augment your ability to:

  1. Realize that you have 2 personalities. One is your real, child-like personality; the other is the artificial, projected personality.
  2. Accept that your projected personality is a result of an emotional prison. This prison limits your freedom of expression, and therefore cripples your complete persona.
  3. Understand that your emotional prison comes from a strong unnatural focus towards negative feelings. Instead of focusing on finding the door, you focus on not hitting the wall.
  4. Change your ill inner managing policy to a healthy one, so that you have the energy to direct your mental efforts to positive results.
  5. Become aware that your inner policy is affected by the deep prime worriments you hold in your heart.
  6. Get to the root of your limiting beliefs, the root of your problems, and give you the confidence and freedom from agitation to clear it out.

This is what Henk Schram reveals to you in his Crack Your Egg program. If you are ready to yank out your root limiting beliefs and replace them with liberating ones, then read my review about the program on this page.
