Are you wondering how to awaken your subconscious mind? Your subconscious mind is really already awake. It’s busy regulating your body. It is controlling your heart rate and keeping you alive 24 hour a day, 7 days a week. You couldn’t imagine all the things your subconscious mind is doing for you, all on autopilot.
But there’s more to your subconscious mind too. It is manifesting things in your life, according to the nature of your thinking. To fully awaken your subconscious mind, you need to learn how to feed it the right nurturing thoughts and ideas. Otherwise, your subconscious mind will deliver a “crop” based on the “weeds” you allow to grow in your conscious thinking patterns. If your thinking is unconscious, you will be feeding your subconscious mind all kinds of conflicting ideas.
Napoleon Hill wrote in his book “Think and Grow Rich” that the subconscious mind resembles “a fertile garden spot”. If the thoughts which we permit to remain in the conscious mind are negative, and of a destructive nature; our subconscious mind will bear “fruit” of a similar nature to those thoughts. By becoming more aware of the thoughts we permit to remain in our conscious mind, we can learn how to awaken the subconscious mind and use its full potential to improve our lives.
Napoleon Hill – “Autosuggestion is the agency of control through which an individual may voluntarily feed his subconscious mind on thoughts of a creative nature, or, by neglect, permit thoughts of a destructive nature to find their way into this rich garden of the mind.” – Think and Grow Rich
How To Awaken Your Subconscious Mind – Thoughts and Words
Your subconscious mind is wise. It listens to all you say, and think, even when you are not fully conscious of what you are saying. Your inner dialogue is the running commentary of your life. It is determining the beliefs you hold and instructing your subconscious mind to deliver the results you want or expect; whichever is the more prevalent in your mind. So be careful of both what you desire and what you expect. Unless the two are synchronised, you’ll likely be playing a ‘tug of war’ between the two.
Be careful when you say something about yourself. Your unconscious mind is listening attentively; like a child is listening to their parent. Feed your unconscious mind thoughts of beauty and abundance, and it will deliver results in your life which reflect this. Feed it negativity or without purposefully chosen thoughts, and your unconscious mind will deliver results which mirror those thoughts.
How To Awaken Your Subconscious Mind – Synchronising Brain Parts
There are four parts of the brain. Unless you get all four parts to work as a team, you’re going to be working against yourself in many of your best intentions. If different parts of your mind are working in different directions, it can make it very hard to accomplish anything or attain any specific goal you set out to achieve. Stuart Lichtman addresses this in his book “How To Get Lots Of Money For Anything Fast”.
By aligning all parts of our mind, we can get our subconscious mind to focus on the thing we want, even when we are doing something else. This is a major factor in how to awaken your subconscious mind. If we have a burning desire, for example, we can’t help but continually focus our mind on it, and the attainment of it. This laser focused intention is what is needed to align your unconscious mind, and to focus the unconscious on it, even when you have consciously forgotten about your intention.
While working away doing other things, your subconscious mind should be still focused on your major goal. This is the mechanism for many major achievements. It can be replicated by using what Stuart Lichtman calls Cybernetic Transposition. That is, the “transposing” of one achievement to another by substituting different outcomes and goals for ones already achieved. Checkout Stuart Lichtman PDF and subconscious mind training pdf.
How To Awaken Your Subconscious Mind – Psycho-Cybernetics
Maxwell Maltz learned that his patients still had a negative self image, even after they had plastic surgery to correct a disliked aspect of their body or face. He started looking into the self image of his clients. He discovered that if he changed the self image of a client, they no longer needed the plastic surgery at all.
They saw themselves differently because their self image changed. This has implications for everyone regardless of whether they consider plastic surgery. We all carry a negative image of ourselves at times. This self image is far more powerful than we can overcome though external struggle and hard work. If we hold an image of ourselves in our minds which is negative, no amount of drive or ambition can overcome it. Instead, the wise thing to do is to change your self image and allow this to bring about a change from within.
How To Awaken Your Subconscious Mind – Mantras and Meditation
Both mantras and meditation are tools with which to alter your subconscious mind and self image. See my article on Affirmations, Mantras and Positive Intention. Mantras can be used to program the subconscious mind in a way which we want. We already do this by default. We may not be doing so consciously, but we still tell ourselves things repeatedly over and over in our minds. Often, it is a negative thing we are telling ourselves. “I’m not good enough”. “Nothing good ever happens to me”. “That’s typical”, “Just my luck” etc etc.
What negative things do you say to yourself? Do you constantly tell yourself how wonderful you are, or do you berate yourself? Turning negative internal dialogue and unconscious ‘mantras’ into positive ones is a good first step when looking for how to awaken your subconscious mind.
