One thing you must have an understanding of is that if you want to make a long-term change in your patterns (ideas, beliefs, worldviews, perceptions, and customs), you must make some changes in the paradigms that are in your subconscious mind- through subconscious mind programming. This sounds a bit overwhelming, but believe it or not, it’s definitely something you can easily do.
Below, you will find the techniques that will teach you step by step how you can harness the power of your subconscious mind in just a few minutes each day. Of course, application of these techniques will take practice, persistence, and most of all time. These three techniques are only relevant if you are aware of what you are doing.
Repetition is Important
Think about it, when you work out over and over at the gym, your muscles get stronger and firmer- and you get in better physical shape. The same thing goes for your mental muscles- when you work them out repeatedly and consistently, you can ensure that there will be a long-term shift in your subconscious mind.
However, before you can begin to work out your subconscious mind and communicate with it more readily, there are some rules you need to be aware of.
Rules of Subconscious Mind Programming
Here are the 3 rules for programming your subconscious mind.
Know Exactly What You Want
When you decide that you’re ready to make a change in your subconscious, you must make a decision regarding exactly what it is that you want to see an improvement in. You must be specific, but not too much. After all, you must be completely rational about it- for example, it’s not rational to will yourself to fly like a bird- but it is rational to take a course on skydiving.
In addition, you must focus fully on this change you wish to make. When you try to focus on too many things all at once, it can cause your subconscious to be confused. You will be scattered, with is the exact opposite of being goal-oriented.
For example, let’s say you want to find your soulmate. You should make sure that you are only focusing on that. You don’t also want to try to focus on overcoming your anxiety, losing a few pounds, and/or making more money. While there’s nothing wrong with having multiple goals, you must only focus on one at a time.
Of course, some goals- such as getting a driver’s license- doesn’t require you to reprogram your subconscious mind. Goals like this only require practice, so you can work on these when working on your main goal.
If several of yoru goals require you to change your subconscious mind, choose the one that is the most important to you.
Determine the Patterns that Stop You in Your Tracks
When you have decided which one is your primary goal, it’s time to talk it over with yourself and discover some of the obstacles in your subconscious mind. For example, if you want to find your ideal partner, you must have a honest talk with yourself without making excuses or putting on masks in regard to what is keeping you from meeting that soulmate.
Perhaps you’re too needy/dependent, which scares potential partners away. This would be something you would need to work on in addition to working on your main goal of meeting your soulmate.
When you are talking things over with yourself, you’ll need to ask:
- What is keeping me from reaching my goal?
- What blockages do I have in my subconscious mind that keep me from my goal?
Of course, there are going to be times that the answer won’t be completely clear- so you may need to bring in some extra help. You can go to a professional therapist or you can talk it over with some close friends that know you really well. However, you must be willing to accept their answer.
Apply Techniques to Shift Your Subconscious Before Sleeping
When you are using techniques to reprogram your subconscious mind, you should ideally do them right before you go to sleep or when you’re first waking up in the morning.
Approximately 15 minutes before you fall asleep, your mind and body start to calm down, your muscles begin to loosen, your breathing becomes more relaxed, your heart rate slows down, and your entire system begins falling into a deeper relaxation mode. It is at this time that your brain starts to produce alpha waves. This is also what occurs during mediation.
The alpha waves show up on an EEG during this 15-minute window between sleep and wakefulness. These waves are a bit slower and there are about 7 to 14 waves per second. According to the research, it is during this state that your subconscious is more open to receiving messages.
As you can see, it is possible to program your subconscious to do what you want or need it to do. However, this is not something you can just do- you have to apply specific techniques, which will take practice and persistence. However, before you know it, you’ll be a professional at subconscious mind programming.
