Your subconscious mind is a powerful force to be reckoned with. It makes up around 95% of your brain power and handles everything your body needs to function properly, from eating and breathing to digesting and making memories.
It’s a very strange being when you think about. The subconscious mind isn’t creative, it doesn’t understand jokes, and it can remember everything you have ever done, said or witnessed. The remaining 5% of your brain, the conscious mind, as the sole purpose of interacting with the physical world.
However, by taking control of your subconscious mind, by becoming aware and in sync with it, you can be sure to take back control of your life and basically achieve anything you want to. This is because when your subconscious mind and your conscious mind is working together to achieve a common goal, you can believe that it will happen. This video shows this process.
Today, we’re going to take a look at how you can take back control and get your mind states in sync with one another. This will lead you to new levels of success where who knows what you’ll be able to achieve.
Visualise Your Success
The first and most important, factor you’ll need to consider when it comes to tapping into your subconscious mind, so you can succeed in anything you like is to visualize what you want or what your goal is. According to study conducted in 1996 at Michigan State University, 46% patients who received instructions in images were more likely to follow their homecare plan.
Jeffery Harper, a lifestyle coach, explains, “This can be anything, no matter how big and small they are, whether it’s giving your children a good upbringing or getting a promotion, to living comfortably with money or moving to a new country. It’s completely up to you. Without defining what you want, there’s no way you’ll be able to achieve it”.
Practice Getting in Touch with Your Mind
Meditation has long been renowned for being a great way to get in touch with your subconscious mind to see how it’s really working. Even just practicing for ten minutes a day can have huge benefits on the way your mind works and the health of your wellbeing.
Jennifer Olson, a lifestyle writer, shares, “Exercise is also so important, not only for your physical body but the state of your mind. I normally start my day with a 20-minute yoga session, followed by a 10-minute meditation session as soon as I get out of bed, just to get the day off to the best start”.
Start Developing Your Writing Skills
With a first thought, writing from the subconscious mind may seem like an abstract concept. Whether you plan on starting a daily journal or even writing a story, you’d be surprised that the subconscious mind plays a huge part in what we write and therefore is a great way to get in touch with it.
Our subconscious mind absorbs so much information and ideas, much of which doesn’t even pass through our conscious mind, making it a great resource when it comes to getting ideas down on paper or on a screen. Also, writing allow you to reach your subconscious emotions and thoughts. Sites like State of Writing and Academadvisor have some great resources you can use when it comes to forming a writing habit. This is a powerful technique.
You might goals already present in your mind that you think about every now and then but that doesn’t mean that they are goals that you’re aiming for. According to study conducted by Dr. Gail Matthews, 43% of people who regularly write down their goals and dreams are more likely to achieve them.
Michelle Parker, a life coach and founder of Cite It In, exclaims, “By writing down your goals and setting them, even if you write down the same thing every single day, the act of writing and reading them back to yourself is a great way to get your subconscious mind in touch with what your conscious mind wants, and it can start taking steps to making it happen”.
Look After Yourself
This is a broad subject, but it’s so vital that you follow if you want to succeed. Looking after yourself means eating a healthy diet, exercising regularly, drinking enough water every day and making the best decision to look after your body and your mind.
By fuelling and looking after your body in the right way, you can be sure that you’ll be operating to an optimal level, making it a no-brainer that both your subconscious and conscious mind are working at their very best to make your dreams a reality.
