In this episode we explore the five ways the subconscious mind learns and we intentionally program our own subconscious mind to create a healthier more joyful life experiences.
- Subscribing to the idea that life is a destination…Life is a journey not a destination. When we decide upon markers which constitute success, and then set about achieving them with a gritty determination, when we get to the point of success, we find that it has not made us feel any better about ourselves. The feeling of success is fleeting. Nothing lasts forever, everything comes and goes. The only thing that remains the same is that change is inevitable. Concentrate on the journey and how it made you feel, what you learned in the process and the connections you made with other people.
- Planning and Worrying Your Life Away; All we have is this moment the past is gone forever and the future is yet to come. We know this but often we act as if we didn’t. If you spend time worrying about what might be, you are wasting the present moment. George Papadas, of Visual Meditation, has written that our subconscious is at its most powerful when we are giving our senses a rest, this happens when we are calm and relaxed. You can work with your subconscious mind at times like this to affirm the change you want to see in your life, however the subconscious mind only in the present tense, So begin with the affirmation “I am”, instead of “I will”. “I am” acts promptly in a very powerful way.
- Reducing Yourself to the Sum of Your Actions; The human mind and body is a complex system of processes. To reduce yourself to what you have been or done in the past is hugely underestimating yourself. Our past experiences and memories are stored within our subconscious ready to be pulled up at any moment. These thoughts can be good or bad but at the end of the day they are only thoughts. The past is gone and the way we recall events can be skewed by how we feel in the moment. If you feel good you may recall a pleasant memory but if you happen to feel like a failure your subconscious mind will supply an abundance of memories which reinforce that feeling. Dwelling on these can really make us believe we are simply a failure. Try to remember the subconscious is a database full of every emotion you have ever felt. Treating these memories as facts is no longer accurate because as memoires they are not real in the moment. So try to accept these old emotions and let them remain in the past. Then focus on the present moment and create a positive scenario.
- Comparing Your Success to Others; Measuring success in terms of randomly assigned benchmarks does not tend to result in lasting satisfaction. As young children when we learn most of our closely held beliefs, it is instilled in many us that success looks like getting married and having a family by a certain age, and that is particularly true for women. If it doesn’t happen according to this held belief, then often they’ll feel like a failure. It is possible to retrain the messages in our subconscious so we can walk our own path without being afraid of being left behind our peers.
- Accepting Beliefs As Facts; Our subconscious records the messages we send it via our senses. When messages are repeated over and over we begin to see them as truth and a pattern is developed. These beliefs you inherited from your parents, the ones you don’t agree with but somehow end up believing them, can be let go of. You can reprogram your subconscious mind by feeding it new beliefs in a conscious state.
