Harnessing the power of your subconscious mind will allow you to achieve more than you ever thought possible. From changing life long habits and beliefs to attaining massive success you can do it through the power of your subconscious mind. Below you will learn specific techniques you can use in order to train your subconscious mind to any goal or task you want to achieve.
How to Train your Subconscious Mind with Visualization
In Dr. Maxwell Maltz’s ground breaking work “Psycho-Cybernetics” he describes the brain as being a cybernetic servo-mechanism. By using visualization a person can direct their mind towards any goal that they would like to achieve. Whether you want to lose weight, start a successful business, or meet a great romantic partner you can achieve it by directing your subconscious mind towards its achievement.
The subconscious mind learns through repetition not through logical argument. To give example imagine that you have to give a speech in front of your work colleagues. If you were unaware of the power of the subconscious mind you might try and convince yourself that you have nothing to be afraid of by using logic. You could point out to yourself that nothing terrible could actually happen and you aren’t in any real physical danger. Despite this if you are disposed to feeling nervous about giving a speech you will still experience anxiety.
This is because your subconscious mind connects speaking in public with embarrassment or something to be avoided. This link has been developed through repetition and consequently needs to be “over-written” with a new positive image in your subconscious mind. Instead of using logic to convince yourself, you should see yourself giving the speech and executing it flawless. You might imagine the look of interest on your colleague’s faces and how confidently you give your speech. Doing this only once is not enough however. You need to repeat this image until this new positive image is engrained.
Visualization can be used not only to change belief structures but also to achieve goals. You might for example want to reach a certain income goal. By visualizing repeatedly on this amount you will find that you take actions on a subconscious level which move you towards its achievement. The more you repeat the image and the clearer you can make it in your mind the faster you will move towards its attainment.
How to Train your Subconscious Mind using Meditation
Meditation is one of the best ways to learn to focus your mind while increasing your awareness. Meditation is not only an effective way of training your subconscious mind it also has excellent health and stress relieving benefits. Practising meditation does not require you to undergo special training or acquiring complex skills. It is a simple practice that can be performed in the comfort of your own home in as little as ten minutes a day.
There are many different ways to perform meditation but one of the easiest is to simply find a comfortable, quiet place where you will not be disturbed.Start by simply observing your breathing and allowing your body to relax. Then repeat either in your mind or out loud what is called a mantra. This is a single word or phrase, one of the most popular mantra’s being either “Ohm” or “One”. Keep repeating your mantra for between 5 – 10 minutes. If thoughts enter your mind, note them, and then allow them to drift away. Over time try to increase your meditation training so that you are practising for at least 15 – 20 minutes each day. As you continue to practice meditation you should find that you have an increased sense of both yourself and your surroundings. This is part of the process of you becoming more attuned to your subconscious.
How to Train your Subconscious Mind by Being More Creative
We can all tap into and access the power of the subconscious mind but by training ourselves to be more creative we can enhance these abilities. There are many different types of activities which can enable this type of creativity. Artistic activities such as dance, painting, sculpture, and photography are all great ways of becoming more creative. Another excellent way of becoming more creative is to practice what is called stream of conscious writing. This involves sitting down for a period of 5 – 10 minutes and writing whatever it is that comes to mind. Do not filter out your thoughts but simply get them down on paper. This is a direct way of tapping into the subconscious and if practised regularly can achieve very interesting results.
