If you need to do anything in life, it’ll be your subconscious mind that helps you to achieve it. If you can learn to work with it, you can achieve anything you want. The problem is most people don’t realise just how powerful the subconscious mind is or, if they do, theyjust don’t believe it.
As a hypnotherapist, I understand how the mind works and I find it fascinating. There is so much to learn that it would take several books to even scratch the surface. This is what the subconscious mind itself is like – it’s deep! The logical, conscious mind that we rely on each day to help us make decisions and concentrate is just a fraction of the mind itself and most thoughts and biological processes come from this deep subconscious mind.
Why should we program the subconscious mind?
Even if you aren’t consciously aware of it, the reason you struggle in certain areas of your life, such as finding the perfect career or earning money from your own business, is because of negative programming that happened in your childhood. There is something, or possibly many things, blocking you from achieving your goals.
One of the things I want to do, at Educangel, is help you identify those subconscious blocks that are holding you back, so you can quit your soul-destroying day job and start to earn the money you deserve, while getting your work-life balance back.
How do we program the subconscious mind?
There are several ways we can do this. The most common way is to go to a hypnotherapist or do self-hypnosis. If you know you have a block in a certain area, you can go onto YouTube and look for self-hypnosis videos for the problem you have. There are even some on there that program your subconscious mind with positive affirmations and it’s done so you can’t hear it. This is even better, as it means your conscious mind won’t stop it working.
You can also use affirmations, which are positive statements. You can find these anywhere on the internet or you can create your own. They have to be in the present tense as if you write them in the future tense that’s where they’ll stay – in the future!
An example is: ‘My day job makes me happy and earns me lots of money’. It’s quite a simple example but it should give you an idea. The problem with affirmations is that if you say them to yourself then your conscious mind knows it’s a lie – if you have the boss from hell and you have to drag yourself into the office then your conscious mind knows your job’s not making you happy, even if it is making you lots of money! That’s why it’s best to record them and listen to them when you are in a hypnotic state, which is just before you wake up or before you go to sleep or when you are in a daydream state. You can also write them down and put them where you’ll see them (without thinking about them) every day. The subconscious mind will catch a glimpse of the affirmation before the conscious mind can block it.
I hope this has given you an overview of how important it is to get the right mindset. You need to get your mind working for you, not against you. I will be giving you more tips and tricks on how to do this but, in the meantime, if you’re blocked in a certain life area, and you don’t know why, it could be negative subconscious mind programming, so go and look at YouTube and give one of the subliminal hypnotherapy tracks a try. I’d love to hear how you get on. Miracles can happen when you release a negative block.
