Are You Ignoring Your Subconscious Mind?

by Geoff Vincent

Let's face it; practically everyone in the world today is aware of the fact that they have a subconscious mind. In fact, when things go wrong in our lives, many people immediately place the blame on their subconscious mind. Unfortunately however, not many people seem to realize just how powerful the subconscious mind can be, and that it can be your best friend or your worst enemy, in that it is your subconscious mind which ultimately controls the way in which you live your life. Perhaps you are wondering what exactly is a subconscious mind, and why it's essential for people to pay close attention to what the subconscious mind is thinking?

Even though many professionals have tried to convince us otherwise, the vast majority of people acknowledge the fact that they have a subconscious mind, and that it is literally a mind within a mind. As such, one could compare it to a control board, in that it is able to direct us to carry out certain actions and to think certain thoughts. You could also view it as being that voice inside your head that you hear when you're in times of trouble. Of course, each person's subconscious mind communicates with them differently from the next. In other words, no two people have the same sort of subconscious mind even if they have been together since birth, and even if they grew up under the exact same conditions. In fact, not even identical twins have the same subconscious mind as each other.

If you take a minute to think about it, you'll realize that you've often heard your inner mind communicating with you. For example, you could have been on the brink of making an extremely important decision when something in your mind told you to back off. Hopefully, if you did back off, it was the right thing to do. Unfortunately though, that self same inner voice can also be a hindrance, in that it can often tell you that you cannot do something, when in fact there's no reason why you shouldn't be able to. It could for example manage to convince you that you're simply not good enough, or that you're not very attractive. As such, we can see that the subconscious mind is in essence what you think of yourself deep down.

Of course if those thoughts emanating from your subconscious mind are filled with negativity, then there's every chance you'll lead an unhappy life. Fortunately however, you don't need to resign yourself to a negative subconscious mind because it is possible to change the way you think about yourself.

One common practice which many people use nowadays is a method known as 'affirmations', in which you repeat positive statements to yourself throughout the course of the day. The good thing about this method is that it's not necessary for you to spend a load of money on subliminal messaging scripts because it is something you can do at home by yourself.

If you would like to stop smoking for example, then instead of thinking that you cannot kick the habit, you should rather be thinking how good it feels to be a non smoker. You should write this down on a piece of paper so that you can carry it around with you and read it to yourself whenever the need arises. You could of course also place a copy of it on the mirror, next to your bed, and even next to the toilet, so that you see the message as often as possible during any given day. Your goal should be to repeat this message to yourself as many times as possible each day until such time that your subconscious mind realizes that this is what you are wanting it to think.

In this example, you will soon start becoming fit, but if you used affirmations for some other purpose such as to make money, then you'll also discover your bank account will soon begin improving.

In case you're wondering if your subconscious mind really does have an impact on your life, let's look at the following scenario. You have an important meeting in the morning but unfortunately you forget to set your alarm. You wake up late and immediately begin panicking, and as a result, you soon start believing that the day is not going to go your way. To make matters worse, when you get into your car, you discover the battery is flat and that the car won't start. After getting someone to help you, you set off on your way but you end up getting caught in the traffic. Even when you do eventually make it to the meeting, everything seems to go wrong. By now you firmly believe that your day cannot get any worse than it's already is but the bad news is that it continues throughout the rest of the day.

Now, if you're like so many others, you'll simply put it all down to coincidence but the only problem is, there is no such thing as coincidence. Instead, everything happens for a reason. In fact, it's usually your subconscious mind which is the reason.

In recent times books such as 'The Secret' have tried extremely hard to explain this phenomena in scientific terms which is why it is now known as the 'Law of Attraction', which states that a person's subconscious mind not only responds and reacts to real life situations, but that it actually plays a part in creating such situations.

Even though this may sound rather crazy, the fact of the matter is that it is in agreement with quantum physics. In fact, it has even been proven at a subatomic level, in that matter is intrinsically linked to the mind of the observer. Interestingly enough, many ancient religions have been trying to tell us of this ever since man can remember.

Essentially, if we can create our own reality by using our subconscious mind, then we can in essence choose what kind of reality we wish to experience. It is also worth noting that some of the most influential people in the world throughout the course of history have come to realize this as being fact, and as a result, they were able to accumulate great wealth simply by taking advantage of the power of affirmations.
