Reprogram your subconscious mind
Joy, excitement, freedom, peace and total contentment – How often do you fully live up to these words? Not enough! In our fast forward life, we may not even realise what joys we are missing out on. It’s like we are always on a run trying to get things done with. We end up following the same pattern of living or making the same mistakes as we go through lives without understanding why such is the case. We may at some point realise that we aren’t happy with our lives or aren’t living the way it should have been but may not find a way to do anything about it. What could be the reason for it?
It’s your Subconscious mind
All your pleasant and unpleasant experiences, habits, visual images, information from your past lives, childhood and present life are stored in your subconscious mind – a place which is not immediately accessible by your Conscious mind. Conscious mind helps us to generate thoughts and decide the path we wish to take. But it’s this subconscious mind that helps you in recalling your childhood experiences, moments from the past, etc. It is also within the Subconscious mind that our habits, character traits, learned behaviours and beliefs including limiting beliefs are registered having being learnt through repetition and practice. Your Subconscious mind is the bridge between your body and Conscious mind. And the catch is that you can reprogram your Subconscious mind by inputting and reinforcing new positive thoughts, positive ideas and positive actions. Which in turn can help you regain fulfilment in life!
Here are effective techniques that you could use to reprogram your Subconscious mind and change the ways of life:
Positive affirmation has a big role to play and it helps the Subconscious mind to reprogram through repeated personal, positive, present tense statements. It has the power of overriding the negative belief or existing negative thoughts. The affirmations can break this negative hindrance while creating new pathways in the Subconscious mind. This also helps the Subconscious mind to start acting in those ways. So it’s best to avoid negative words and replacing them with positive ones.
When we visualise it, we are already creating it! Visualisation is a technique that could enable you to create detailed mental pictures that depict a specific desired outcome. Want to see yourself happy, visualise yourself to be in the state. Want to quit a bad habit? Visualise how life would be great without it. Apply visualisation into your everyday life. These mental images so created, stimulate the Subconscious mind into accepting them as reality, while directing behaviour as needed towards achieving the desired goal.
Calm Your Mind
Meditation is a great way to still your mind. And consciously and unconsciously you start reprogramming your mind. While you practice meditation, make sure to involve the positive visualisation and imagination as a point of focus for whatever habit you want your Subconscious mind to submit to. You can also use the technique of chanting – putting positive prayers out there!
Have the will for it
‘Will Power’ is that part of us that moves us to respond passively or actively to a given situation. It can help us break the mountains, build bridges and scale new heights. We can use our ‘Will’ voluntarily by being conscious of it or involuntarily by subconsciously taking some actions which are deemed beneficial to us. The way Will power can help you move mountains; the same technique can be used to reprogram our Subconscious mind to break a bad habit and build a good one!
Self- suggestion is one of the easiest ways we could use to consciously tell our Subconscious mind what we would like to see happen. Take for example, you would like to wake up at 5am in the morning to get going with your jogging. You could say to yourself before going to bed that ‘I want to wake up at 5am’ and because this is a very important thing you wish to accomplish, you will agree with me that you will wake up even before that 5am in order to see yourself through the routine.
Using these techniques can help you reprogram your subconscious mind while at the same time removing the excessive burden that long established negative thoughts have buried in it. You can rebuild a happier environment, live the joyous moments of life, take a step back and introspect the ways of life and most importantly live the way you want to live the life!
