First of all, you have to know that you have a hidden power within you. A power so remarkable that it can transform your life as you learn it how to use it. Many people are ignorant of it, and it is your subconscious mind.
Most of the people simply don’t know what the subconscious mind is or how it works. You may have believed that the subconscious mind is not real, it is something mysterious or even taboo. But in reality, it is an integral part of your mind. And the subconscious mind is immensely powerful. It is a hidden power as many of you are not aware of its presence. Actually, we can transform our lives from ordinary to awesome with the help of this power.
With the help of your subconscious mind, you can achieve your goals, inculcate good habits in your life, an abundance of wealth, become healthy, become faster, better and quicker. Above all, it can bring you true joy, happiness, and more success.
But you have to understand that you only have one mind. This single mind of you possesses two completely different functionalities that; the psychologists have given them two names: the conscious mind and the subconscious mind.
Through this article, I will explain the subconscious mind and how it works, how you can transform your life with the help of it to create the life you desire to live.
What is the conscious Mind?
Let us understand what is the conscious mind, before discussing the power of your subconscious mind. No way I want to diminish the power of the conscious mind because it is a marvelous, spectacular machine. The conscious mind is the part of your mind which you are aware or conscious of. It is the logical portion of your mind which has the power to think logically, to analyze it, decision making etc. The conscious mind collects the memory of the past and learns from them to plan the future.
But the conscious mind has limitations. One is that it has a limited memory. We often forget the names of the people forget our keys and sometimes forget whether we have locked the door or not.
The second limitation of the conscious mind is that it can only do one thing at a time. It can’t do multi-tasking. You can’t read and listen to someone talking to you. You have to focus on either of the two.
The Subconscious mind:
The Subconscious mind is the portion of the mind that you are unaware of. The Subconscious mind is always on duty, it never sleeps. It’s like the internet which records every event happening to the earth in the cloud. It functions in the background of your mind constantly controlling the function of the body and mind. It runs the digesting system, breathing process even while asleep.
The Subconscious mind also remembers all the routine tasks that we learn with great effort with the help of our conscious mind. The classic example is when you learn to drive a car or a motorbike. At first, we have to do everything with the help of your conscious mind. You have to consciously learn to put your foot on clutch and brake at the same time. After again to slowly leave the clutch and put the foot on race and slowly press it to go forward. At the same time, you have to look towards the front and give signals whenever necessary.
So, at first, you have to consciously learn the moves. But once you went through the conscious learning process, neuro pathways are formed in your brain and gradually the Subconscious mind take over so that you don’t have to think about it consciously. And the driving becomes more of an automatic function.
Another example is that of typing on a keyboard which everyone does nowadays. At first, when you learn to type on a keyboard you are very slow and it is painstaking. But once the neuro pathways take over the conscious activities then you are able to type without looking at the keyboard.
The Subconscious mind remembers all these activities because you do them repetitively. Repetition is one of the keys to reprogramming the Subconscious mind. It is the emotional part of your mind and source of love, hatred, envy, anger etc. The Subconscious mind has unlimited memory. Everything from your born to till now is present in the memory of your subconscious mind. It includes everything you have seen, every voice you heard and every emotion you have ever experienced.
The Subconscious mind holds the deep-seeded beliefs about yourself, including whether you see yourself as talented or untalented, successful or unsuccessful, intelligent or unintelligent etc. These beliefs are the result of your experience in your life including the childhood days.
Reprogramming your Subconscious mind:
Reprogramming your Subconscious mind means to get rid of the negative beliefs, and replacing them with positive ones. But how do you do that?
The process is very simple but effective. You may not believe in it as you may think it won’t work. But I assure you that try it at least for six months and see the results. I can say that if done correctly, it can change your life bettering it. You can be able to achieve whatever you want in your life. The process is to develop a series of positive affirmations by utilizing the conscious mind to embed it in your Subconscious mind.
The first thing you have to do is to sit down on the table with a pad and a pen. Then you have to write down a series of affirmations that describes your life, “Exactly you want to be”. You can write everything from your finance, health, your lifestyle etc. Write the affirmations like so that you have already in possession of that thing or lifestyle.
Some examples might be: I am a successful writer
I own a successful business
I live in my dream house
I drive my dream car
I am a healthy person etc.
While writing the affirmations remember that they are in the present tense and they all are must be positive.
Now you have to embed these affirmations in your Subconscious mind through the process of repetition. Here is how to do this…
“Sit in a relaxed position by relaxing the body and the mind. Take a few deep breaths and release it and then focus on the affirmations in your hand. Visualize yourself already having achieved these goals and traits. Feel and see that you have acquired the qualities and you became the person you want to become. Repeat it twice a day at your convenience for at least six months.”
It is very critical to stick with the process of affirmations until it totally accepted by your Subconscious mind. Because the Subconscious mind can’t hold two competing beliefs at the same time i.e. it will believe that you are either intelligent or that you are unintelligent. It will not accept them both.
Conclusion: The changes may come dramatically while you are reprogramming your Subconscious mind. But often it comes gradually and slowly. But it will occur. And you will begin to believe that you are capable of achieving your goals, you will be the person you wish to become most important of all, and you will begin to take steps necessary to accomplish your goals.
