The Power of The Subconscious Mind

The human brain is an incredible machine.
The power of the subconscious mind is absolutely incredible.
We are all familiar with the conscious part. The conscious part of the brain is the part that you are using right now to perceive the world in front of you. It is the part of your brain that makes choices and decisions. This part of your brain makes up 10% of your brain chemistry.
The other 90% of your brainpower is derived from the subconscious mind, the part of your brain you are not conscious of. The subconscious mind regulates all your bodily functions and houses the memories and experiences of every event in your life, whether you can consciously remember them or not.
In essence, the subconscious mind is the storage room of everything that is currently not in your conscious mind.
The subconscious is also home to your belief system, personal skills you have acquired and all the habits you have developed. It is basically the “bank” of information your conscious mind accesses to make decisions all throughout your day. It can be conditioned and RE-conditioned.
Your subconscious mind acts on autopilot.
The subconscious mind is responsible for the automatically triggered feelings and emotions you suddenly experience upon facing a new situation. If you are nervous giving presentations in front of people, you might experience fear and anxiety right before your speech. These are all feelings housed in your subconscious and have the ability to be altered and removed.
Re-programming your subconscious mind takes a lot of time and effort.
If you are going to change a habit or pattern of belief that you have been using for the last 20 years, you are not going to be able to make any dramatic steps overnight. You have to make the conscious effort to change, but 90% of your brain is going to resist the change from the subconscious because it has been deeply programmed to function a certain way.
A lot of times, the effort of the 10% is completely overwhelmed and people give up on trying to change bad habits and beliefs. Look at how many people try to quit cigarettes or drugs but never fully make the commitment.
Self-hypnosis is a hypnosis that a person performs on his or herself. In fact, all hypnosis is self-hypnosis. A hypnotist will merely suggest ideas to you while you are in a trance, you make the ultimate decision if you truly want to act on them for your benefit.
Hypnosis can be performed in a variety of ways. In my opinion, the best method to try at first is to play self-development hypnosis recordings that have been recorded by professional hypnotists.
If you are an owner of a smart phone, there are many great hypnosis applications that have been developed by professional hypnotists. There are different audio tracks and inductions for various self-development topics such as quitting smoking, beating procrastination, and overcoming anxiety.
My favorite applications are developed by a man named Andrew Johnson.
Andrew is an professional hypnotist and Reiki teacher from Scotland. He has helped many people shed limiting belief systems and instill new empowering habits into their lives.
You can visit Andrew’s website at http://www.withandrewjohnson.com/ for more information on the services he offers.
Subliminal messaging is also a great tool for rewiring your subconscious mind without effort. Subliminal messages are audio tracks that contain messages that the conscious mind can not “consciously perceive.”
Because the conscious mind cannot judge them because it cannot hear them, they slip through to your subconscious mind and are acted upon INSTANTLY. Everything your conscious mind can’t perceive, your subconscious is still perceiving. Just because you don’t think you can hear these audio tracks, your subconscious can still pick up on the messages and use these positive affirmations to rewire new positive habits into your life.

My favorite method by far is meditation.
Not only does meditation help you access your subconscious mind consciously so you can alter it, it has a variety of other physical, mental and spiritual benefits as well.

All of these articles deal with how meditation can benefit your life in a variety of different ways.
The human mind is absolutely incredible. It has been said that it might be the most powerful tool that exists on this planet. After all, there would be no other powerful tools without the human mind.
Everything you see in existence is the product of thought. Human thought has enabled us to fly planes across continents and communicate with other people on the other side of the globe at light speed.
It is an amazing device, and if used and trained properly can help you live a fun, relaxing, and enjoyable life free of stress and worry.
If you are currently living a stressful and worry some life, I suggest you read the articles and websites I have provided in this article.
