It was noted psychologist, Sigmund Freud, who was the first scholar to introduce the concept of the subconscious. According to Freud, our subconscious mind is the repository of our feelings and thoughts which were filtered by our conscious mind.
And according to Freud the subconscious contains our primal instincts and urges, which are suppressed by our moral principle and guides. Along with these primal urges there are other factors that define the subconscious and make it a very powerful.
In defining the subconscious we see that it is only as balanced and effective as the quality and clarity of the information supplied to it.
The power of subconscious stems from its mission, which is to make every effort to create reality based on the repetition, clarity of the picture, and the power of the emotion supplied to it.
You can actually train your subconscious to create any act you consciously choose (within certain limits of course, though the limits may be much greater than you imagine).
Your subconscious mind is a creative automated mechanism which can solve your problems and change your life much fast than the conscious mind ever could.
Many are unaware that a lot of our conscious thoughts are influenced by what’s going on in our subconscious. For example, we may be angry at our boss but since we can’t do anything about it, our subconscious mind will direct us to channel the anger somewhere; we may kick a dog, yell at our co-workers, or simply shake our fists in the air; happening well after the incident with our boss. Leaving us wondering just what cause to “go off.”
Knowing this you can see that a happy subconscious will change your life, because with happiness as its programming, your subconscious will only seek solutions that will create the conditions of happiness.
Fortunately, there are some practices that we can use to train our subconscious. Karl Staib shares tips with us to change our mindset and achieve a happy subconscious:
Step 1: Before you turn out the light, close your eyes and take one minute to make a request to your subconscious. It can be anything. I would start small and make it open ended. I wouldn’t request to be an astronaut by the end of the month. Your subconscious is good, but not that good.
Step 2: Take two minutes to visualize yourself actually able to do this thing. Whether it is getting the motivation to jog before work or eating a healthy snack, you must visualize yourself doing the request that you asked your subconscious. Let’s say you want to jog before work: imagine yourself getting up a few minutes earlier than usual, putting on your exercise clothes and jogging shoes, and heading out into the crisp air. Then you start jogging, watching the sun rise over the buildings, the birds chirping, and you are feeling good.
Step 3: Take two minutes to imagine the feeling that will occur when you are able to accomplish this new thing. How do you feel when you walk back in your front door after a morning jog? Energized? Whatever feeling you want to achieves imagine that you have already created this emotion inside of yourself. Let it sink in, then go to sleep and let your subconscious do the rest of the work.
Your subconscious mind wants to help you improve your life; you just have to trust its vast resources and allow it to do its thing. Continue reading here…
It turns out your subconscious is unlimited because it can be trained and retrained. When you follow these steps and focus, clearly picturing what it is you desire, your subconscious will forget past mistakes, change course and correct itself seeking only the genuine happiness you desired.
We are made up of layers of emotions, thoughts and feelings and the only way to be happy is to connect to our core-self.
With practice we can train our subconscious; and yes, a happy subconscious can change your life.
