Power Of The Subconscious Mind And How To Program It
Your mind can be divided into two parts: the conscious mind and the subconscious mind. Both parts are working right now.
Based off the senses, such as sight, your conscious mind chooses to think certain things about the situations or people around it.
Your subconscious mind, however, contains everything that is not in your conscious mind. It stores your beliefs, memories, experiences, habits, and every impression you have had in this life.
It is what allows you to go through many life situations on autopilot (like breathing or driving your car, or doing routine housework) while your conscious mind takes care of matters at hand.
Your Subconscious Mind Power And How It Has Been Programmed
The word 'program' seems harsh for something like a human mind. You program a computer, but not a human mind, right?
Well, the truth is that your subconscious mind has been programmed. You arrange and organize information in your head and that 'program' allows you to go through your day, make decisions, and interact with the world.
The problem is that the program you have in your mind may be doing you more harm than good in your life. It may be causing you to do things or think things that don't contribute to your life positively.
Is Your Subconscious Mind Programmed Negatively?
How can you tell that your mind is programmed negatively? You will feel negative and you will not be getting the things you want in life.
The choices you make and the actions you take will cause you to feel negative. You may be anxious, worried, angry, hurt, or sad. The behaviors you exhibit, because of the subconscious mind power that dictates how you act, will hold you back from getting what you want.
The good news is that you always have the option to program your subconscious mind positively. And when you do, it will help you to do and think things that are more beneficial to your life and happiness, and you will feel good more often.
How To Program Your Subconscious Mind
The way to program your subconscious mind, in a positive or negative way, is through repetition of thoughts. If you tell yourself something enough, you eventually believe it, and it becomes a part of your subconscious mind.
That is how all the information you hold in your subconscious mind got in there in the first place. You cannot just tell yourself something once or twice and expect it to become a part of your subconscious behavior. Repetition and commitment are the keys.
- Your parents continuously told you things that they believed, and you adopted many of those things as your beliefs.
- Your environment continuously taught you how to interact with the world, and that's how you likely still interact with the world today.
- You didn't just become confident in the rules of the road overnight, you repeatedly went out and drove and were committed to becoming a driver who didn't need to consciously think about what to do next.
3 Steps To Reprogramming Your Mind
1. Allow Yourself To Be Open To The Possibility
Now that you understand that your subconscious mind power, and the influence it has over your life and how fulfilled and happy you are, you need to open yourself up to the possibility that you can reprogram your mind.
If you doubt that you can, then that will be the dominant thought in your mind and it will maintain all of your negative beliefs in your subconscious mind that are holding you back. In short, you will have a hard time convincing yourself of anything new.
You can use meditation to help you open your subconscious mind to new ideas. Through meditation you gain more control over your mind and the thoughts you allow in and accept.
But, if you have read this far, I think you are pretty open to the idea that your subconscious mind power can be changed to influence your life in a more positive way.
2. Start Reprogramming Your Mind
There are two things that you can do to reprogram our mind. One utilizes someone else to train your mind while the other requires you to train yourself. By using both methods, you will find the best results.
Hypnosis: In hypnosis you become responsive to suggestion and direction. It is a valuable tool to modify behavior (subconscious acts) through suggestion.
Being hypnotized is not very different from going into a meditative state. You deactivate your dominant thoughts and new information is easily allowed in.
Positive Affirmations: The more you tell yourself something, the more you will believe it. You are affirming things to yourself right now, and some of those things are likely blocking you from having the life you want by holding your beliefs firmly in place in your subconscious mind.
For instance, you may tell yourself that making money is hard over and over again, and because your subconscious mind is consistently fed those affirmations, you do things that hold you back from making the money you want.
Replacing that affirmation with something more positive, such as 'Making money is easy when you make the right choices and quickly take action' will tell your subconscious mind that making the right choices every day is going to help you make more money, and you will start to automatically make the right choices and take action.
So, remember, your subconscious mind power has total influence over your life. It dictates what you will do and how you will do it, and it ultimately dictates how much fulfillment and happiness you have in your life.
But, you have the power to change your subconscious mind. It all boils down to how badly you want to change your life.
