Our minds are more amazing than so many of us realize. It’s truly beautiful to realize our full potential through the workings of our minds.
How the Mind Works
Our conscious mind – what we are actually aware of – makes up only about 3% of our entire mind. It is the conscious intention setter, and the seat of our willpower. It’s the imagination and the builder of our dreams. We can set our intentions here and use our imaginations to go to great heights, to learn and grow, to make our world a better place. Here is where we can use tools like affirmations and positive thinking to make our goals our reality. It is with our conscious minds that we establish what it is we want to do in each moment and make important decisions in our lives.
So why do we so often have difficulties in making our goals and intentions come to life? Why do we think one thing and do another? Why do we “spin our wheels” so often after we have made a major decision, and encounter such difficulties, considering the pure brilliance of our conscious thoughts? Why are positive thinking and affirmations simply not enough to make us realize our dreams?
This is where the subconscious mind and unconscious mind come in. The subconscious mind is the part that we’re not really aware of. We have programs that run in the subconscious that truly decide whether or not we will achieve our goals. The subconscious and unconscious mind make up the remaining 97% of our entire minds. This is where our manifestation machine truly exists. The subconscious mind is more powerful than most of us realize. This is the part of the mind that commands the unconscious mind to manifest our reality by attracting people and circumstances that match the vibrational frequency of the programs running in the subconscious.
Where Subconscious Programs Originate From
Subconscious programs are built from quite a few sources. First we have this life – from being in the womb, right up till this moment – in which we have learned to focus our thoughts in a specific way. When in the womb, we feel and hear everything our mothers do. Subconscious programming begins here. Throughout life, what we see, hear, feel, everything we are taught, is presented to the subconscious, and from there, either accepted as a truth – a program – or dismissed. It all depends on each of us individually. The subconscious is like a tape recorder. It records everything that comes our way from all of our senses, and depending on which programs have been accepted as truth, plays these programs back, over and over again.
Powerful subconscious programs can even be picked up in our sleep, while we are unconscious. When we sleep, we are in deep Theta and Delta brainwave states, which makes it even easier for the subconscious to pick up new programs, because what we hear while in this state does not get a chance to pass through any conscious filters, and goes straight to the subconscious mind. Sleeping in a public place, or falling asleep while watching television can give us new programs to contend with. Even doctors’ conversations while in surgery, under anesthesia, can build new subconscious programs.
We can even pick up new fears by being in a place where many people have felt fear before. How? Thought forms are transmitted from the mind into the ether, or the quantum field. If someone is very fearful of driving over a bridge, the person in the next car behind him can actually pick up that fear while crossing the bridge. As more and more people with this particular fear drive over a bridge, the thought form becomes more powerful, and suddenly, someone with no fear of driving over bridges will often suddenly feel an explicable feeling of fear come over him. This accounts for psychic impressions of land, where wars have been fought, for feeling danger in a “haunted house,” and so on.
Whether or not the subconscious accepts it as a new program is up to each person’s individual ability to accept or dismiss the program.
Not only do we form subconscious programs in this life – we also have our parents’, grandparents’, and further generations of genetic subconscious programs that get passed on to us in our DNA, in the epigenetic field, or energy film, that surrounds the DNA. Some children accept the genetic subconscious programs, and others don’t. This is why some children will have their parents’ subconscious beliefs, while their siblings may not.
Other places where we pick up our subconscious programs from include our own past and future lives (in quantum physics, it’s been shown that past, present, and future all exist here and now, with time and space being the illusion that allows us to live as human beings). And some programs can run so deeply as to actually exist in our very souls.
As you can see, we can literally have millions of subconscious programs running that we don’t know about, from other times, people and places, all in conflict with our conscious desires and intentions. No wonder so many people believe the Law of Attraction doesn’t work for them!
How to Reconcile the Subconscious Mind with Conscious Intent
So how do we align our subconscious programs with our conscious desires and become the masters of our own reality? Just knowing the power of the subconscious mind is the first big step in making this happen. Once we realize that our actions aren’t always under our conscious control is half the battle. Knowing this gives us the power to change the programs running in our subconscious minds.
There are many tools and techniques available to us that help us reprogram our subconscious thoughts. I utilize many techniques with my clients to help with this, and witness extraordinary results. From NLP (NeuroLinguistic Programming), to advanced training in mindset focus, stress relief methods, including meditation, to detoxification, to TFT (Thought Field Therapy®) and EFT meridian tapping, to ThetaHealing®, I have personally been able to release programs from myself as well as my clients, and create new programs that are in complete alignment with conscious intent. Once the subconscious is lined up with the conscious desires, we become very powerful manifestors and learn how to make the Law of Attraction work in our favor, and stop attracting what we don’t want all the time.
