Chances are you have already heard about that other aspect of yourself- the deeper, subconscious mind. You have most likely come into contact with it during dreams or when you listen to that “inner voice.” You probably haven’t really understood the potential that tapping into your subconscious mind has- you can learn more about a version of yourself with wisdom you could never imagine.
Mind Power Techniques and Ways to Access the Power of Your Mind
Here are 4 ways you can access the power of your mind
This technique helps you to tap into those deep, subconscious emotions and thoughts. In order for this to be the most effective, you should try writing as soon as you wake up in the mornings. This is when you are the most likely to be able to tap into the remnants of your dreams. Write quickly without giving any conscious thought to what you are writing.
Don’t pay attention to anything that your conscious mind typically tells you to such as spelling, grammar, or word usage. The most important part of this exercise is to get the stuff out of your head onto the paper. You may be shocked by the results. Try doing this for a week. Many times, people find that this becomes a great way to keep themselves grounded and help them to access a deeper part of themselves.
Out of all of the techniques that you can use to access your subconscious, meditation is the most direct and effective. Learning how to meditate is not that difficult and studies have proven that spending as little as 20 minute each day is beneficial to your mental health as well as your physical.
When you practice meditation- especially deep meditation- the patterns in your brain are changed and deepened from the typical “beta” patterns to alpha waves, through the delta waves and into the theta.
Your conscious mind gets in direct contact with your subconscious mind when you are in these states of consciousness. This is the time when your thoughts become much more creative and not as limited by the typical constraints of your logic. Then, as you continue to practice meditation, you are able to access the power of your subconscious mind any time that you decide you want to.
Consider Your Own Advice
There are lots of different versions of this exercise, but they’re all based upon the central idea of having an imaginary conversation between your conscious mind and your subconscious mind. Once you have become more familiar and proficient with some meditation techniques, you’ll find this exercise is much more effective.
Before you go to sleep at night, imagine that you are sitting at a counsel table. You can invite others to sit at the table with you if you wish. You might consider inviting at least one other person, your “counselor/wise being.” Of course, it is critical that you imagine this “wise being” with as many details as possible.
You can invite someone you admire, someone you made up, a departed grandparent, a famous figure- anyone at all. It is, after all, your mind that is creating this scenario.
You must keep in mind that your “wise being” is wise beyond anything you could ever imagine and has the answers to everyone of your questions. Sit quietly and let yourself be at peace with your “wise being.” Then, when you’re ready to ask, bring up the question that is bothering you the most.
The answer may be shocking and completely unexpected. Be sure that you are listening very carefully when this answer comes. Your subconscious is trying to let you know something that is vital for your life.
If you are persistent with this exercise, you’ll find that your “wise being” is much more vivid in your imagination and you’ll find it easier to have a conversation. When you reach this point, you have truly gained a path into your subconscious and unlocked the wisdom that is inside of you.
Increase Your Creativity
Typically, your subconscious prefers speaking through artistic, non-literal language. On the other hand, our conscious mind finds that it prefers the logical and concrete language. You can increase your subconscious to communicate with you by giving it the language it needs: musician, playing, drawing, writing, and painting. You don’t need to have a natural talent to express yourself artistically.
