What do you know about your subconscious mind? Maybe you’re wondering, why is it important?
Have you ever had the feeling that there’s something driving your thoughts, actions, and behavior? That there is an underlying force that seems to be hidden just below the surface controlling what you do?
You’re not alone – and you’re not wrong.
In fact, beneath your conscious mind lies a powerful subconscious that has more influence on you than most people imagine. From the way you talk to the decisions you make without consciously knowing why – your subconscious plays a critical role in guiding you through life.
Your subconscious mind directly influences the way you speak. For instance, many of the words or phrases you use have been picked up from your upbringing or social environment.
For instance, in New Jersey, “sub” is a common term for a type of sandwich made on a long roll filled with deli meats, cheese, lettuce, and other toppings. If you go to Philadelphia, this type of sandwich is known as a “hoagie”.
It also controls how you interact with others. Let’s say you feel an instant connection with someone you just met. While it could be their voice or body language, you probably won’t be able to tell someone why you like them.
Understanding the power of your subconscious mind will help you make sense of these underlying behaviors. This insight will help you unlock the secrets you have within. These are secrets you can use to improve your productivity, relationships, happiness and more.
Let’s start by examining what the subconscious mind controls.
The Power of Your Subconscious
The power of the subconscious mind cannot be understated. It has a deep influence over your thoughts, emotions, and behaviors.
Operating on a level beneath your conscious awareness, your subconscious or unconscious mind acts like the operating system of your computer. Running on autopilot behind the scenes, it controls your body’s vital processes, including heart rate, digestion, and breathing without any conscious input.
In addition, it shapes many areas of your life. It does this by creating your habits and beliefs.
So, understanding the secrets of the subconscious is essential if you want to maximize your life’s potential.
How the Subconscious Mind Works
The subconscious is responsible for most of your habitual, instinctual behaviors, as well as your emotions and beliefs.
For example, let’s say that you have a habit of biting your nails when you feel anxious or stressed. While you don’t understand consciously why you do this, subconsciously, your mind associates nail biting with feeling better.
While it can be hard to understand, a simple way to think about your subconscious is as a vast storehouse of information that operates outside of your consciousness. It is constantly making connections between different pieces of the sensory information you take in with your five senses. Your brain then uses this data to form your beliefs and attitudes.
Here’s an example. Let’s say you have a spider phobia. Whenever you see a spider, you feel a sense of dread and anxiety. You’ve never had a traumatic experience with a spider but you’re afraid of even harmless ones anyway.
Somehow, your subconscious mind has attached fear to spiders. Maybe when you were a small child you heard a frightening story about spiders, and it gave you nightmares. Now it is a deeply ingrained belief.
This is your subconscious mind at work.
Communicating With Your Subconscious
Your subconscious communicates with your conscious mind through dreams, intuition, and other subtle cues. If you pay attention to these signals, you can gain valuable insight into your thoughts, feelings, and motivations. This insight can help you in all areas of life.
Let’s say that you feel stuck in your current job. You can’t figure out what direction to take next. As you sit on your couch, you start thinking about several different options, but you can’t decide. So, you go to bed.
That night you have a vivid dream where you’re doing work that feels like the perfect fit. It is exciting. You feel happy and fulfilled.
When you wake up, you feel this dream is trying to tell you something important. So, you get up to think about it. After sitting on your couch for a while, you realize that the work you were doing in your dream is similar to your favorite hobby.
While you’ve never considered this hobby as a potential career, the feeling the dream left you with prompts you to explore this idea further. After you do some research, you find that the idea is viable, and it aligns with your passions and values.
So, you decide to give it a try as a side-hustle.
By listening to the subtle cues of your subconscious mind, you were able to make this positive change. Paying attention to the signals of your subconscious mind gave you insight and guidance.
While it can be difficult to fully understand and control, by learning to listen to the signals from your subconscious, you can harness its power. This will allow you to live more fulfilling and purposeful lives.
How to Tap into and Reprogram Your Subconscious Mind
Harnessing the immense power of your subconscious is possible using processes like mindfulness meditation, visualization, NLP, hypnosis, and affirmations.
Let’s take a closer look at how you can use these tools for greater success.
Mindfulness is the practice of remaining present in the moment while being aware of your thoughts, emotions, and bodily sensations. You can use this practice to increase your awareness of how your subconscious mind is affecting your thought patterns and behaviors.
By taking the time to practice mindfulness daily, you can uncover what your subconscious mind is trying to tell you. This will allow you to focus its power in achieving your goals and desires.
Visualization is an effective way to program the subconscious mind to work towards attaining your goals and dreams. By creating a vivid mental image of success, you provide your mind with focus and direction. This guides your subconscious down the path needed to achieve your desired results.
Affirmations are positive statements that you repeat to yourself that reinforce positive beliefs and behaviors. It is a tool you can use to help you accomplish specific goals and create a life filled with abundance.
These manifestations can be used to reduce stress and anxiety. They can also be used to increase your motivation. By regularly reciting your affirmations, you can reprogram your subconscious mind to create success in all areas of your life.
Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP)
Neuro-Linguistic Programming uses perceptual, behavioral, and communicative processes to help people change the way they look at things. The idea is by changing your perceptions, you change your behavior.
NLP can help you identify and change negative thought patterns and behaviors. It does this by focusing on the language and sensory information you use to represent experiences in the mind. Once you understand how you are representing the information to yourself, you can use NLP to shift your perspective.
This new perspective can give you far greater options to choose from to help you come up with a solution for your situation.
Hypnosis is a technique that involves entering a state of deep relaxation. In hypnosis, your mind may enter another level of consciousness, allowing you to access your deepest thoughts and desires.
Since your subconscious takes everything literally, you can use hypnosis to talk to it directly and make the positive changes you’re seeking. You can use it to help you eliminate unhealthy habits like smoking and overeating. It can also be used to develop a mindset that attracts wealth and success.
Maximize Success Through Subconscious Mind Power
As you’ve seen, there is nothing metaphysical about your subconscious mind. It is simply a part of your brain that works below the surface of your conscious thinking.
But although it’s below the surface, it actually controls most of what you say, think and do. It can make the difference between success and failure for you in everything you attempt to accomplish in life.
Knowing how your subconscious operates gives you the ability to transform yourself and reach your highest potential.
You can use mindfulness to increase your awareness of what your subconscious is telling you.
