The subconscious mind is so powerful that is has to have a set of rules governing it, or it would have more control over the conscious. It’s 30,000 times more powerful than our conscious mind. This means most of our actions that we don’t know about are handled by the subconscious. If one is looking to increase their control and power over their own selves, one must look to empower their subconscious.
#1 The subconscious doesn’t know the difference between what’s real and what’s not. This also means it’s directly linked to our imaginative abilities. I.E. Horror movies. We innately feel the energy being broadcast through what’s subliminally happening in the movie. Whatever is imagined cannot be deciphered as real or fake because of the subconscious. One of my personal favorite methods is imagining myself in a situation, whether with a job, partner, training, or whatever. I think of myself vividly in the situation making a decision or significant choice, or perhaps the other way around. I work through all of my feelings, drawbacks, and victories in each situation. As I work, whenever the situation arises, I have then already dealt with it, similar to muscle memory, so that when the event happens I am already ready for it and can take advantage of the opportunity, a thing some people call luck.
#2 Time passes slower when one is using it consciously. I like to tell people that when we are looking forward to something it seems like time is passing slower. It’s because we are not existing in the current moment. It’s the reason why counting the clock seems to take forever. If one uses their time wisely, it may seem as if they lose track of time as they are lost in every moment. Training yourself to be in every moment will make time cease to exist, as time is a construct developed by man, and not real. When one focuses on something the conscious mind is involved and makes things slow down, because of the focus. Another reason why one should train the subconscious is to do things subconsciously instead of consciously. The subconscious mind isn’t able to sense time the way that the conscious mind is able to.
#3 Everything we do in life is the result of a belief that we hold. The only things we can act out in life are the things we believe in. The longer one holds on to a certain belief, the harder they are to change. What are some negative “stories” you have told yourself about yourself that have held you back? I have believed that on average I’m never going to earn more than $18,000 a year. I have said that every year since I graduated college, kind of like something I’m celebrating. I have said I’m terrible with women, and I have been. I’d literally find a way to sabotage something good I had, kind of like Ricky Bobby’s dad in Talladega Nights. These little things we believe really hold true, and have held me back. The negative beliefs we believe and foster about ourselves hold us back from our true potential. I no longer say these things, and use affirmations and various other methods to ensure my subconscious believes only positively about my capabilities.
#4 Every thought causes a physical reaction. This is why if one believes they can get sick or will get sick due to a certain time of the year, one will physically get sick during that time of the year. If one runs around hoping that one does not indeed get sick, the focus is on being sick, and one will indeed get sick. This makes it paramount that one thinks positively about their body, as their body follows the thoughts of the mind. If one thinks they are ugly, they will indeed be ugly.
#5 One gets everything that they expect. Why? Because actions follow thoughts. If you expect little, you will get very little. Because you probably will do exactly what it takes to get just a little. If you expect a lot, you will probably get a lot. The subconscious will direct the body where it needs to go to achieve what it expects. The things I have expected to do I have always been able to do. The more daunting a task, the more fear creeps in, the less likely one is to complete the task. We get exactly what we expect.
#6 The subconscious is always actively aware. I’m notorious for harping on people all the time about what they say and do. This is because the subconscious mind is always, always active. It is listening to everything one puts in it, and always watching everything going in through the viewers, the eyes. The subconscious mind never turns off and is always looking for proof of the things it believes in. That is why one should seek truth and wisdom above all else. Anything else negative that is fed to the subconscious on a daily basis becomes its natural food. It will search for this food in the actions that you take. It will make you take actions that will give it the food that you feed it.
#7 Whenever in a battle with the conscious mind, the subconscious mind will always win. The subconscious, because of the proof it has received over time to substantiate its beliefs, will always look for other proof if the individual is trying to force conscious thoughts onto what the subconscious mind already knows. This is why in a lot of old texts mental alchemy is the greatest alchemy. To change the mind is to change the self.
#8 Ideas will stay in place once planted in the subconscious mind until they are challenged and defeated. If one has the idea that they cannot date beautiful women or meet a girl who plays video games and is beautiful, these ideas will stay in place until challenged. One will go through life with the belief that they cannot make over $20k a year until the belief is challenged. I am a personal testament to this.
#9 The more the conscious mind is used, the more the subconscious fades into the background. This is why it’s good to verbalize thoughts with oneself. Making the subconscious conscious is key in controlling the thought patterns in one’s mind. If one is “conscious” in their actions, the laws of the subconscious play less of a role in how one chooses to operate. This is why it’s important to be active mentally. The subconscious becomes our autopilot otherwise and we will always get what we have always expected to achieve or do unless we change consciously and actively the pattern of thinking.
Lastly. The subconscious is extremely vulnerable to suggestions. Hypnosis is based on this principle. Suggestive material, such as background items or music, stirring a cup, or a light touch on the hand or shoulder, will effectively distract the conscious mind. This leaves the subconscious mind open to suggestion. This is how you can convince anyone of anything, as long as you distract their conscious mind.
One can take control of their life by understanding how the mind works. First, one should do just a little research on brain nutrition and function, to find out if their current state is capable of making these changes. Nutrition allows our body to work optimally. After beginning a nutrition plan that can help your brain work optimally, then we can start working on feeding our subconscious ultra powerful tips and hints that can help us add high quality to our standards of living.
