The unconscious mind is an enigma to many and the ways on how to train your subconscious mind even more. Its power remains hidden, and people fail to tap into the limitless reservoir of greatness that they have within themselves.
I had accepted the fact that since I was born in a middle-class family, I am destined to live my life accordingly.
I had set the path in my life set even before I started living.I will study hard, get a decent paying job, marry, settle for a conventional home and die.
I often read that man is the creator of his destiny, but no matter what I did, the results often were what I would call as substandard, too little and hard earned.
It was after I studied about the hidden potential of the unconscious mind, I understood what is the subconscious mind capable of, and that changed my life.
I recommend everyone who is still trying to figure out their purpose in life or are struggling for answers to try ‘Power of Subconscious Mind by Joseph Murphy.It is the book that you see in the right-hand side-bar of this page.
It is your right to live a richer and fuller life.
You are here to live a prosperous and a beautiful life.It does not have to be hard, full of struggle and disappointment.
Whatever you can conceive and fix in your mind, can be achieved. You need to develop a mindset to allow the unconscious mind to manifest your crystal-like clear goal.
Your subconscious is your key to greatness.
The answer to your struggle for success lies with you reprogramming the subconscious mind. You need to be aware of the potential of the unconscious mind so that you can make it work for you.
To give you few hints, you might have heard of hypnotists make people from audience behave like a cat or a rockstar. Experiments have shown people developing blisters under a suggestive influence.
What about you?
Do you sometimes wake up just before your alarm clock ticks off? Do you feel at times that you reached your office without realizing how you exactly arrived there? It was like you were in auto pilot mode.
It is your subconscious which is at work.
What is the subconscious mind capable of? Is it limiting your growth?
Your subconscious is like your life sustaining software. It has stored in all the details and inputs which it received from you or others around you.
It knows that you need to run when there is any danger, that you need to sleep when you are tired. It raises your blood pressure and heartbeat when you are stressed or angry.
Along with the life-sustaining activities, it has saved suggestions and observations since your childhood.
Phrases like “You are not smart enough,” ”Life is hard,” “Money is the root of all Evil,””Success and prosperity are for selected few.”
The list is long, and it depends on your schooling, friend circle, parents, and relatives. These suggestions have been embedded in our system, and the unconscious mind uses these as the guidelines to direct our actions.
These conditions have become our limiting factor.
If you believe that rich people are crooks, then you will always find your way to bankruptcy. It is because your subconscious will not allow you to become a rogue as per your belief.
If you have accepted that life is meant to be a constant suffering, then you will keep running into people that will hurt you, or some situation will keep coming up that will reinforce your belief of pain.
How to train your subconscious mind for succeeding in every phase of life?
There are many ways to reprogram the unconscious mind. Some more sophisticated than the other. We will stick to the basic and very effective method for now. Follow the steps below:
- Get to a very comfortable sitting position on a couch or a recliner.
- Breathe slowly and relax.
- Watch your thoughts as a silent observer till they start to go away. Do not chase any ideas. Pull yourself back if you start thinking about something and just observe.
- Now after your minds seems a little clear, visualize your goal till the last detail.
- Believe that you have already achieved it.
- Feel the joy, the ecstasy, and the gratitude.
- Say it aloud in words with full conviction.
Training the unconscious mind is more than wishful thinking.
It rewires your brain and empowers you to bring it to reality. This exercise will consume your mind and body with the thought of achieving your goal, and you will find yourself slowly attracting all the resources to climb the towers of your dream.
Your thought is the action, and the fulfillment of the goal will be the reaction. It is by the scientific principles.
How the mind interprets your thoughts?
Your mind deals in images.
This fact is probably the most important idea to be kept in mind when developing your understanding about the unconscious mind.
Your mind deals in pictures. Not words, only pictures.
For example, you want to quit smoking, and during your exercise, you are saying aloud that “I will not smoke,” then it will, unfortunately, do more harm than good.
It is because your subconscious cannot deal with a negative connotation.
You need to rephrase your words like “I have a very healthy lifestyle,””I am free of any bad habits,””My subconscious sees to it that I remain fit and healthy.”
So, put a very clear image of yours as a successful person in whatever field you want to improve. The more details and emotions you add to your visualization, the better and sooner the results will come.
Common mistakes that people do while training their mind for success
- Thinking positive then contradicting.
The primary mistake that people make is to visualize the goal, strengthen it with affirmations but later deny it with their actions.
You cannot think about wealth and riches in your exercises and then wail over the paucity in your life. The Conscious mind is there to evaluate your thoughts and pass it to the unconscious.
- Jealousy from success of others
The second very common issue I see among people is to criticize or envy the success and prosperity of others.
How can you attract something in your life if you are criticizing it in the first place?
You are blocking your good if you let the feeling of jealousy or envy take place in your heart. But we are all human beings, and it is nothing but natural to sink a little when you see someone’s success whereas you need to toil for every little thing.
But in all sincerity, I urge you to refrain thinking from anything of the sort.
Next time, you see someone succeeding, smile, and wish them all the luck in their endeavor. Remember, you are doing this more for yourself than the other person. By developing this attitude, you open the gates to your abundance.
- Not giving but only receiving.
This is probably one of the biggest reason for the lack of abundance.
It is important to understand that wealth by nature flows freely. You cannot hoard and lock it. You need to complete the circuit by giving if you wish to receive.
No wonder if you look at the more accomplished people, they are big on charity and social service. You do not need to sign off a big cheque right away, but you need to develop a mindset of giving, to the best of your capacity
The unconscious mind is your genie
The unconscious mind is your treasure trove. Use the knowledge to program your mind for greatness.
The fundamental rule in reprogramming the subconscious mind is to be careful of your thoughts. Make a clear blueprint of what you want to achieve and strengthen it further by your prayer and exercises.
Bring positivity into your thoughts, confidence in your action and affluence in your life.
Once the destination is set and fixed, the route gets mapped out precisely. Your subconscious will guide you on the steps you need to perform and the activities you need to de-prioritize from your schedule.
You can further accelerate the results by thinking of ways in which achieving your goal will benefit others. Your genuine belief and emotion will rewire the brain and put the universe in action to accomplish your goals.
There are many ways on how to train your subconscious mind, but by far the simplest and most efficient way that I have found is to practice Visualization techniques and always being careful about my thoughts.
I will leave you with some food for thought.
Watch your thoughts as they become your words,
Watch your words as they become your action,
Watch your actions as they become your behavior,
Watch your behavior as they become your character &
Watch your character as it becomes your destiny
