Our subconscious mind is always vying for our attention. It communicates with our conscious mind through feelings, and these feelings are never random. Autosuggestion is the process of introducing thoughts into the subconscious mind, which includes all the self-administered stimuli that reach the mind through the senses. The dominant thoughts that remain in the conscious mind, whether positive or negative, will reach and influence the subconscious.
When a thought is enhanced by a strong emotion such as faith, fear, or love, it will dominate. You can use your consciousness to reprogram or retrain your subconscious to do things that are more beneficial for your present and future. Learning techniques to reprogram your subconscious will help you believe in yourself and no longer be intimidated by fear of the unknown. When you focus your subconscious mind on a task and back it up with strong emotion, it will allow you to see the opportunities in life that will lead you to your goal.
Your subconscious mind makes everything you say and do conform to a pattern consistent with your self-concept, your “master program”. Your conscious mind can be thought of as the gardener who plants seeds, while your subconscious is the garden or fertile land in which those seeds germinate and grow. Communicating thoughts from the conscious mind to the subconscious is difficult because it must be done with emotions. Utilizing your conscious thoughts to program your subconscious can bring success in all areas of life that you are striving for.
Your subconscious also practices homeostasis in your mental realm, keeping you thinking and acting in a manner consistent with what you've done and said in the past. With this ability, you can influence your subconscious to work toward the goals that are important to you. A pendulum works because infinitely small micromuscular movements, which are controlled by the subconscious, go hand in hand. Since your subconscious has great control over your positive and negative behaviors, it is essential to train your brain to produce more positive behaviors. In addition, there are three techniques for communicating with the subconscious in other ways: meditation, visualization, and affirmations.
When you meditate and begin to control your breathing, you gain control of the subconscious mind and give it to your conscious mind. Visualization involves picturing yourself achieving a goal or outcome that you desire. Affirmations are positive statements that help reprogram your subconscious mind by replacing negative thoughts with positive ones. By understanding how our subconscious works and learning how to communicate with it effectively, we can unlock its power and use it to achieve our goals. With practice and dedication, we can use our conscious efforts to reprogram our subconscious minds and create a better future for ourselves.
