The Power Of Your Subconscious
Self Hypnosis is basically a means of letting your subconscious mind communicate with your conscious mind.
We can only establish contact with our subconscious minds, when we relax and let our conscious mind take a back seat. Our subconscious mind has immense powers, and it can be mastered with routine practice.
Once the programming has been done, our little computer functions automatically on the responses it has stored in early practice sessions.
Self-hypnosis is according to to a doctor who has a practice in Oxfordshire.
I often find myself telling my clients that it is nothing but the awakening and strengthening of our subconscious mind. Our subconscious mind is more powerful than we can ever imagine, and it’s high time we gave it, its due. Self-hypnosis is all about connecting our conscious mind, with the subconscious mind.
It’s like making two long lost friends meet each other. Or better still, it’s like helping two spouses who often miss connecting with each other on a busy day, reconnect with each other. In order to master the art of awakening our subconscious mind, it is necessary that we take out time from our hectic schedules to talk to it, to coax it to blossom into its full glory.
I often equate the process of self-hypnosis as something that is as similar to driving a car. When we first learn to drive it, we are careful about all the maneuvers that we need to make to have a smooth ride…push the accelerator, release the clutch, steady the wheel.
When we first begin, it seems like we would be reduced to nothing but nervous wrecks while driving; however, as time passed and driving became a routine, most of us did not pay even the slightest attention to the strategies required to drive a car. Because we function on something called auto-pilot.
The act of driving, and all the maneuvers associated with it are so well imprinted in our minds, that we do not need to put in a conscious effort. It has by default become a part of the subconscious mind. Self-hypnosis too, is related to the subconscious and it requires practice. There is a certain amount of discipline required to awaken our sleeping subconscious.
All of our beliefs are stored in the subconscious mind. The subconscious mind is like your body’s computer. It takes an Input, processes it, and delivers an output. If you find that you are unable to make lots of money, it may be the thought held in the subconscious mind is something such as “I don’t deserve to be prosperous.” In order to change our beliefs, we have to operate at the level of the subconscious mind.
Influencing this part of your mind can be considered the Holy Grail in the pursuit of achieving your goals. The difficulty lies in the fact that so little is known about it.
The best way to influence your subconscious is through repeated habit.
Keep doing them again and again until they become second nature. You are conditioning your mind to accept a positive response as the norm. This works well with positive affirmations when trying to change your mindset.
The power of your subconscious mind is vast. This area of your mind harbours all the ‘computer code’ which eventually translates into your thoughts, feelings, emotions, habits, personality and character. The way you use these attributes will determine your behaviour and eventually your physical circumstances. Your subconscious mind has the power to bring into your life anything you ‘programme’ into it.
If you consider your subconscious to be a sieve, then emotions are like flour. The smaller particles will slip through easily, however larger particles will not. Unfortunately, negative emotions are like the smallest particles, they are easily dropped into the mind, whereas positive emotions are like larger particles and have to be â€~forced’ into the mind. This is why positive thinking takes effort and negative thinking does not. The only way to master positive emotions is to use them as much as possible. This is the key to success.
