Have you heard of saying “What we continually think about eventually will manifest in our lives?”
Yes. It’s because of the power of your subconscious mind.
The subconscious mind is a data bank for everything, which is not in your conscious mind. It stores your beliefs, your previous experience, your memories, your skills. Everything that you have seen, done, or thought is also there.
For example, when you meditate and you start controlling your breath, you get the control from the subconscious mind and give it to your conscious mind. You start breading deep and with your stomach. Then you stop to control it and your subconscious starts doing it. You do not have to think about it anymore. Your breathing will continue to be relaxed until another stimulus changes it (stress for example). Everything is controlled in the back of your head.
Communicating thoughts from your conscious mind to your subconscious mind is difficult because it should be done with emotions. Only the thoughts that are conveyed with genuine emotions make it to the back of your mind. And only the thoughts that are backed up by a strong emotion stay there.
Unfortunately, this is true both for the negative and the positive emotions. And also, unfortunately, the negative emotions are usually stronger than the positive ones. When you say to yourself “my life is awful”, it writes down awful life. When you say “my job is boring”, it writes down a boring job. And when you say “my body is ugly”, it writes down the ugly body. And then it goes on and grants you all those wishes because they are filled with strong emotions.
Stop here and ask yourself: “Can you afford to let negative self-talk enter your mind?”
Your first step in harnessing the power of the subconscious mind is to eliminate the thoughts loaded with negative emotions. One of the best practices in reducing negative self-talk is the counter technique. Every time a negative thought comes to your mind, you counter it with the extreme positive counter-thought.
We must realize that the first few moments immediately after waking up are the most important of our day because that is when our subconscious mind is most active.
Our subconscious mind has no sense of humor, plays no jokes, and cannot tell the difference between reality and an imagined thought or image.
To experience bliss throughout the day, spend a few minutes in Self Realisation and God.
