Building a Positive Connection – Conscious and Subconscious Mind
To achieve long term positive changes, balancing your emotions, improving your mental and physical health. The first place to start is in understanding the difference between your conscious and subconscious mind. Understanding how to build a positive connection with them working together in harmony. To take advantage of their combined power in achieving your core desires [how you want your life and how you want to be] bringing your dreams into reality.
When you are wanting to make significant changes to improve your life, your health, the way you act or behave, understanding the difference between your conscious and subconscious mind is an essential element for success.
The subconscious mind has no filter, therefore whatever information goes into your subconscious mind it will believe. As you see this needs an editor and director, that being your conscious mind and your subconscious mind is the curator and author of your life. In order to building the life you want to live, you must build a positive connection between your conscious mind to edit and direct the information so as to achieve your core desires, dreams and goals.
A Simple Exercise to Help Understand the Difference between your Conscious and Subconscious minds
I want you now to start by controlling your breathing rate. Find a quiet and comfortable place to sit, that is relaxing for you. This action is helpful when wanting to relax. Begin by controlling your breath with your conscious mind, this putting you in charge. Now slowly, but gently breath in, then breath out gradually slowing down your breath.
Now stop controlling your breath and let it flow naturally. When you take this exercise from your conscious mind allowing your subconscious to take over once again, you will notice you’re your breathing returns to its normal rate. When making significant changes to your thoughts and implementing new ones, you can use this simple exercise. Start with the breath to bring about balance, then use your conscious mind to speak the change you want to make whether it be to your thoughts or to your actions to your subconscious mind.
An example might be with a thought “I am not attractive” then to change this to an empowering thought such as “I am attractive”. I know for me if I am about to write, for example this module for you, my first thought was “I can’t do this”, then to change this thought to “Yes, I can do this”. An action or an unwanted habit might be “Smoking”, this doesn’t align with your core desire to be healthy.
You may well think about leaving this on the shelf because you feel or believe that you can’t give it up. It is important for you in following through with your core desire to be healthy to bring the action of giving up smoking back on the shelf and to cement in your subconscious mind that you can do this successfully. An affirmation you might use to cement this into your subconscious mind would be something like this “I am a non-smoker, and my health is improving every day”. Saying this as often as possible throughout the day. Together with disposing of every aspect of being a smoker.
Building a Positive Connection between your Conscious and Subconscious minds is the power behind you making significant and positive changes.
