There is none more profound and powerful aspect of the human beings than their subconscious mind. Personal happiness, self-esteem, and success in life can only come to those who learn to harness the remarkable powers of their subconscious mind. So, the big question you should ask yourself is how to use the subconscious mind’s power to change your life. This article is going to lay emphasis on two powerful techniques only.
1. Learning to access and control the subconscious mind using positive directives
Most folks never learn how to access and control (modify) their subconscious; therefore most folks have no idea what goes on in their subconscious mind. Subconscious, by definition, means below awareness. Since the subconscious mind houses the directives that control the ways we act, react, think, and believe, it seems crucial that we at least understand what is going on ‘down there’.
When you ask how to change your life for the better you are really asking how to modify your mind’s harmful directives and replace them with helpful, life-affirming thoughts. When you find yourself acting or thinking in a way that is counterproductive, write it down in this form. My subconscious mind (often called the Deep Mind) is directing me to _____. Complete the statements by adding the unwanted behavior (hurt people, steal, put others down, take advantage of others, be greedy, hate others, and hate myself or whatever it is).
Then, write a ‘how to change your life positive directive’ to replace it. I want my subconscious mind to direct me to ______ (help people, love, encourage, or whatever.). Read each new positive thoughts several times a day and think about ways you can make it happen in your life. List some specific behavior you will do that day that will demonstrate and reinforce the new, positive replacement directive. Since the subconscious mind learns best from seeing how you behave, you must act on it over and over again. The Deep Mind does not respond well to words or being told things. The more it sees you acting according to the new thought, the more often it will direct you to act that way.
Always approach your subconscious mind in the positive, never in the negative – ‘do’ and never ‘don’t’.
2. Keep practicing the application of the positive directives
There are several mind power techniques that you can incorporate for the betterment of your life. When learning how to change your life, you are going to begin by replacing those negative, hurtful, self-defeating thoughts that are hurting you, with positive directives that will help you. Your only purpose in writing out the hurtful directives is to help you discover what opposite, helpful, directives you need to write, live, and demonstrate for your subconscious mind. Never reinforce those negative directives by revisiting them. When you feel your subconscious mind urging you to act according to one of them turn on the positive, replacement, directive. (With special training one can learn how to eliminate those unwanted directives entirely. In the meantime just work to override them)
Finally, our behavior is always determined (in the end) by those directives, so it is important to consciously provide helpful alternatives. Eliminating the harmful thoughts entirely is a more complex process. At the outset of this process of working on how to change your life, strive to, first, discover those harmful feelings and, second, write out and practice the opposite, positive, replacement emotions.
