06 Jun The Power of Your Unconscious Mind
The Goldmine Within
You are the sum total of your thoughts!
A management consultant friend often asks a question of top UK management attending his training courses. What is the most powerful thing we possess? The answer he usually receives is their favourite Ferrari. In fact the answer is something that we all possess, that can bring into our life health, power, wealth and happiness. Our unconscious mind which is the most powerful thing we will ever own and unfortunately it doesn’t come with an instruction manual. We just need to learn how to use and apply it appropriately in our life.
As Joseph Murphy says ‘the infinite intelligence within your unconscious mind can reveal to you everything you need to know at every moment in time’.
One of the first things to remember is that the subconscious mind takes you at your word. Everything you think, say and do is attracting, whether it’s what you want or not. Unfortunately we often focus on what we don’t want, manifesting the very thing we fear or don’t want. If you find yourself running some negative self-talk programme, which we all do. Listen to what you are programming into your mind, your life. About 70% of what we say to ourselves is negative. Those words we say to ourselves and the pictures we make are creating our lives. In fact your minds perception of the world changes your biology, the chemistry of your body changes your cells, 50 trillion of them.
Our programmes that were downloaded into our subconscious minds at an early age by our family, teachers and peers, before our critical facility was formed at the age of six or seven. Unfortunately these outdated, unwanted beliefs are running our lives. The good thing is we can change them. You are what you think and by changing your thought you change your destiny!
Firstly you need to be aware of what you are saying to yourself and challenge it, is it true? Does it serve a useful positive purpose to say or believe this? Will it enhance or improve my life?
If not decide what you do want. Belief is very important here, you must believe that it is possible to bring this into your life.
Visualise what you want, see it vividly and clearly bringing in all the senses to build a powerful positive picture and feelings. Your unconscious mind does not know the difference between real or imagined. You can run it like a film with a soundtrack of positive affirmation, focused on having received what you want. ‘I am healed’ ‘I am perfect, I am enough, I am loveable, powerful, harmonious and happy’. As the Chinese say ‘A picture says a thousand words’.
A good time to use this technique is when entering the hypnogogic and hypnopompic stages which is when you are just drifting off to sleep or just waking.
Get the feeling of the happy solution to the problem, whatever it is. Relax and keep it simple, your unconscious mind knows how to achieve it, you do not need to give step by step instructions by getting into too much detail. Your subconscious will find a way to manifest. It is awake and working 24/7, keeping us well and safe, controlling all our vital functions. Just keep miracle making faith.
When what you desire and imagine are in conflict your imagination usually wins. Trying too hard or forcing implies opposition.
Try it and see, so just remember visualise what you want, with a really good positive feeling, use a positive affirmation that is worded as if it has happened. ‘This infinite healing presence within me is now transforming every atom of my being making me whole and perfect now.
It takes up to 21 days to change a habit so keep practicing.
