Remember the saying “what the mind can conceive, the body can achieve”? This is something that many people believe in and continuously do so because they know that it is the truth. Your mind is a very powerful tool that you can use to achieve anything you want in life, be it success, wealth, greatness, or good health.
There are two distinct aspects that make up the mind and these are conscious mind and the subconscious mind. The conscious mind functions by interpreting the information taken from our different senses such as the visual, auditory, and olfactory. It forms our perception based on the data received from these senses, and our mind processes certain beliefs based on these. The subconscious mind, on the other hand, is where the information is stored. Basically, whatever data was accepted and processed in the conscious mind is being transported into the subconscious.
The Functions of the Subconscious Mind
Studies show that about 90% of what is going on in your mind is controlled by your subconscious and yet, you are unaware of it. It controls bodily functions like digestion, heartbeat, breathing, and even eye movements. It stores memory and has every detail of every experience you have ever had.
Think of your subconscious mind as a very powerful computer with a huge storage capacity. Every event and every detail is being stored in this “super computer” and when you want to recall a particular event, your mind sends a message to your subconscious and then these “files” are opened and processed by the conscious mind.
In the instances that you think you have forgotten some events, it only means there was some confusion on the signals being sent, but as far as the subconscious is concerned, no single memory or detail is ever forgotten. Everything is there, stored for keeps.
How Subconscious Programming Works
Now that we have understood the functions of our subconscious, we can move ahead to understanding how to program it. The first thing you need to know is that you cannot force or coerce your subconscious because if you do, nothing good will come out of it. Have you tried prepping yourself for an important exam only to have “mental block” on exam day? The subconscious does not like struggle and when this becomes evident, it will create resistance, thus blocking information from coming out.
By storing positive and harmonious data into your subconscious, you can expect that it will answer by giving positive and harmonious conditions into your life. Create a positive mental attitude to program your subconscious mind so that good things will follow.
Tips for Subconscious Mind Programming
When you want to program your subconscious mind, understand that it not only reads thoughts and ideas, but also the emotion that goes along with it. It cannot distinguish between positive and negative, neither can it reason out; it only takes these things as they enter the mind, so be careful on the information that goes inside.
Another thing you need to remember is that visualization can be very effective when it comes to subconscious mind programming. If you are shy and introverted, you can visualize yourself as outgoing and confident, and these ideas will slowly creep into your subconscious and will in turn direct your conscious mind to act the part. This of course takes time and practice, but if you do this so consistently, then whatever you have visualized will become a reality.
The subconscious mind cannot differentiate between what is true and what is not. If you tell yourself you are a smart and witty person with a great sense of humor, and actually think up images portraying yourself as such, then your subconscious will simply store these data, regardless of whether it is real or not. Imagine what this can do for you!
In terms of developing a great personality, you can do so much simply by programming your subconscious mind. You can start now. All you need is to visualize what it will take to help you achieve such a personality and think of positive memories, and soon, this will come true. Developing your personality can be as easy as pushing buttons in your mind.
