Our mind has to main subdivisions, the conscious and subconscious mind. These two sections of the brain work in conjunction with one another but each has its own role. Issues to do with calculations, body movement and coordination and logical comparison are handled by the conscious mind. The subconscious mind, on the other hand, handles what happens rather automatic to use. Good examples are breathing or heartbeat. Based on scientific studies the conscious mind occupies less 10% of the mind, the larger 90% is all for the subconscious mind. It is in the subconscious mind where you will find personal memories, skills, beliefs and all sorts of life experience or images of something you had seen in the past. Most emotions are triggered by the subconscious mind but there is a problem, this part of the brain can’t tell what is true or what is a lie. As much as the subconscious mind has a huge significance in our lives it can easily be manipulated. And it doesn’t have to always be in a negative way, you can train the subconscious mind such that it attracts your heart desires. The following is a guide on how you reprogram your mind to attract success and greatness.
Visualize the success you desire
The first step if you want to reprogram the subconscious mind, you must visualize your desires. Chances are you are wondering how do I do it? Here are examples to start from seeing yourself in the home that you have always desired, with a happy family and adorable kids, visualize yourself in the dream job you desire or running the business of your dream. By visualizing you will be directing your subconscious mind and will hatch plans to get you to your desire.
The visions have to be specific
One thing should be clear, whatever you visualize have to be clear and specific. Our subconscious mind can’t interpret vague or generic visions such as “I want to get rich”, “I want to live a great life”. As much as these are visions, the truth is, they are too general and can’t be quantified. Being too general it becomes extremely difficult for the subconscious mind to take the necessary steps to make your visions a reality. For this to work, the visions must be specific, quantifiable and precise.
Write it down
If you want to achieve your dreams rather fast, slip it to goals. These goals should be realistic and quantifiable. You can start off by writing down ten goals as the last thing you do before going to bed or the first thing you do when you wake up. Writing down acts as a reminder to your brain on the things you should do reach your goals. Take advantage of the fact that the subconscious mind has no ability to judge, for this reason, you can visualize things that seem rather crazy to achieve at that moment, trust me the subconscious works in a surprising way.
Affirmation is important
These are declarative statements that you make to yourself of which are essential when it comes to reprogramming the subconscious mind. What seems as just repetitive positive affirmations have the potential of becoming self-fulfilling prophecies. Repetitive affirmations have the ability to change the usual neutral pathway in the brain. This helps create a new belief and actually work towards fulfilling it. An example of an affirmation is “I shall use my knowledge and intelligence to create my self-made wealth”.
Mediation is a technique that has been used for ages and is particularly very effective when it comes to reprogramming the subconscious mind instilling a sense of stillness and tranquility. The essence of meditation is to make the subconscious mind more receptive. If you make an ambitious plan or goal, take an initiative of giving it time so that it can take roots in the subconscious mind. The best way to see that this happens is through meditation. Meditation also helps in ensuring that the brain stays focused for long without getting distracted which is crucial if you are to achieve your heart desires.
There is a great difference between positive self-talk and affirmations though they all work in a similar way. Based on a book by one Shad Helmstetter, we actually spend way more time on self-talk than talking to other people on a day to day basis. What we say about ourselves to ourselves dictate our mood, attitude, decision and there are high chances that it will be what we believe. If you control the self-talk then you will have a chance to live just how you want it. The subconscious mind will not only believe what you say to it but will also manifest on what you say to it. Even with affirmations, you should also take time and feed your subconscious mind with some self-talk on what you would like to achieve. This is not a one-day thing, so it often and you will be surprised by the positive change you get.
Act as if your desires have come to reality
The goal is to reprogram the subconscious mind but even as you wait for the change you should start acting as if all your desires have been fulfilled. Start seeing yourself where you want yourself to be. Remember that the subconscious mind can’t judge if you start acting as if you have accomplished your dreams the subconscious mind will perceive it as reality. Here is the deal; do you want to get wealthy? Start acting wealthy. If you are not sure how to do feel free to research on how wealthy people behave. As crazy as it may sound mimic the behavior, trust me the subconscious mind will reciprocate. You get what you want and believe in. Achieving your desires is not impossible.
Our lives are run by the subconscious part of the mind by absorbing what you feed to it and manifesting your desires to reality. The first step to achieving your desires is by reprogramming the mind and we have highlighted and explained in details on how you should go about it. Give them a try today and test the power of the subconscious mind.
