“We can’t solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them”. – Albert Einstein
Your subconscious mind is the most powerful tool in your grasp.
When you reprogram your mind with the right beliefs, there is nothing you can’t do. Here you will learn how to reprogram your subconscious mind.
How to Reprogram Your Subconscious Mind
Your subconscious mind does not know the difference between real and imagination. It will act as if your imagination is real.
To reprogram your subconscious mind is to give suggestions.
Whatever suggestion is made, your subconscious mind will take and you will become your suggestion.
But you can’t make suggestions to the subconscious mind in our normal waking state.
Why the Conscious Mind Blocks Suggestions
If we give suggestions while our conscious mind is active, it will analyze the suggestion according to our beliefs and rejects it.
The conscious mind is like a security guard. Play by the rules or you’re out.
Imagine having a security guard with you 24/7 who won’t let you do anything against the rules in your own house.
You would have to ask if the security guard accepts your suggestions before doing anything.
We Don’t Want That! We have control of our own mind.
When we change our state of consciousness, we are likely to enter that suggestion into our subconscious mind because we move the conscious mind, the security guard, out of the way.
5 Rules to Giving Right Suggestions
Once you change your state of consciousness, you can give yourself suggestions to the subconscious mind. The more relaxed you are, the better the suggestions are made.
But how do you make the right suggestions?
There are certain rules to making suggestions that bypasses the conscious mind. These rules are a reflection of how the subconscious mind works.
If you give yourself a wrong suggestion or a wrong way to suggest, it will either not work for you or it works unfavorably.
There are 5 crucial rules of suggesting to the subconscious mind:
1. Use present tense
The subconscious mind knows no past nor future.
If you say “I will…”, it translates to “I will” the next day…and the next day…and the next day. It’s a repeated cycle you give to your subconscious mind.
Bottom line: you’ll never get to it.
Speak as if you had already achieved it. Put your phrase as “I am feeling great.” Even if you are giving suggestion on a future date, you still want to use the present tense.
Wherever you are, your subconscious mind will give you on your present day wherever your present is – which is always.
2. Be specific
This can come as a clear image in your visualization or the clear instruction you give.
Your subconscious mind will take every word into account, especially when there is no conscious mind to analyze and reject the wrong words.
If you want to suggest that you are happy, add descriptions of where, when, or how happy you are.
For example, if you suggest that you will have a house, make sure you describe the house and make it realistic as possible.
Don’t worry if you can’t get a clear picture or speak gibberish on your first try.
It rarely has any effect when done once. It’s when you repeat your suggestion that it becomes stronger and affects your subconscious mind.
3. Use positive words
You are giving instructions to your subconscious mind that will change your life.
Don’t use negatives because your subconscious mind can’t process them.
If you say “I don’t want to buy that junk ”, your subconscious mind translates it to “I really want to buy that junk”. If you say “I don’t want to live like this”, this translates to “I really love to live like this.”
4. Be concise and simple
Simple words are best. Too long and you might give your subconscious mind conflicting messages or something not understood.
5. Use exaggerating and emotional words
The subconscious mind is the domain of emotions. You want to use appealing emotive words that resonates strongly within you.
Don’t use neutral words like “good” or “happy”, use words like “wonderful”, “beautiful”, “tremendous”, etc. You can also be creative with your words and as exaggerating as you can be.
Key to Subconscious Programming
- Life is repetition.
Learning is repetition. By doing something repeatedly, we install the suggestions to our subconscious mind.
- When you are giving suggestions, make sure you say that it harms no one.
This is important because you will never know how your subconscious mind will give it to you. This is part of being specific for your suggestion, phrase it in a way that says that that your suggestion is clean and safe.
- Have different ways to say the same thing
Not only do you strengthen the connection by saying it in different ways, it gives your subconscious mind clarity to what you really want.
- Have faith when it comes to your subconscious mind.
Faith is to believe that it will work, that your conscious mind accepts the suggestion. Trust and it will come.
- Alter your state of consciousness
- Give suggestions
- Repeat until installed
