Human mind is the most powerful tool in the entire universe which is the source point for all human actions or behaviour. Simply put, whatever one says or does, the origin for all of those lies in ones mind. Hence, you should not underestimate the power of your own subconscious.
For example, if you wish to change the channel on the TV, you think about it and then you do so. But, have you ever noticed you picked up the remote and quickly changed a channel without ever once thinking about why you did what you did? If so, have you ever stopped to think about your actions? More than likely, you did not because the action was a subconscious one.
Now, how does such an action occur? Perhaps a commercial for a product you disliked appeared on the screen and this subconsciously triggered the reaction to change the channel. Yes, the subconscious mind can have an enormous impact on how we act.
This is precisely why one should train his subconscious mind. Undoubtedly it is the best way to develop one's quality of life and take it to a level never thought possible previously.
One's true inner potential can be discovered through harnessing the power of his subconscious mind.
Many people warn us against the evils of our own subconscious. While it is a good idea to know about the dark side of human psychology, but knowing only the negative and dismissing the rest would only result in unfortunate consequences.
Hence, you must always look at the positive aspects of harnessing the abundant power of your own subconscious mind. If you are thinking this to be an extremely complicated process, then sit back and relax because it is not so difficult at all.
Guiding one's own subconscious is not as complicated and difficult as believed to be. One can do this successfully by following a few simple processes. Some of these processes would be discussed in the next paragraphs.
The first and the most basic technique is that of affirmations. Affirming your mind refers to repeatedly telling your mind about some positive thing in order to attain that desired result. This can be said to be the simplest method to guide the subconscious.
If you have a task to finish which you perceive to be boorish and otherwise do not have any interest to do, you will experience a deeply tired feeling coming over you.
This sense of tiredness is essentially a stress response from thinking the job to be boorish and this stops the energy flow which is vital for him to finish the job. Using mental affirmations during such times is the best way to come back on track in order to complete the task successfully.
Firstly, you could repeatedly remind yourself about the many benefits that will follow the completion of the job. Secondly, you could also stand in front of the mirror and affirm to yourself that you are the person best suited for this job and nobody can do it any better!
Affirmation hold good for habit changing efforts. Suppose, you are trying to stop bad habits like smoking, drinking or over-eating, affirmations are the best. Scientific studies show that constant repetitions and reminders, either spoken or written facilitates tapping the powers of your subconscious and thereby changing your behaviour in the process.
There are other means one can use to harness the power of the subconscious mind. Post hypnotic suggestion is a common method that is often used. This process can be done by using a qualified hypnotherapist but self hypnosis is also an option by listening to pre-recorded hypnosis audios.
Brainwave synchronization through binaural beats is another method for developing the power of the subconscious mind. Here, an individual is made to hear two different sound waves having slightly different frequencies through each ear. These sound waves thereafter goes into the brain and synchronize the two hemispheres creating a deep meditative mental state of mind which facilitates communication between the subconscious part and the conscious part.
There is evidence that this can actually be taken much further. Buddhist monks for example are able to use the power of their subconscious mind so successfully that they can exhibit what some would call 'supernatural' powers such as levitation and invisibility.
The immense scope of having a developed and controlled subconscious is that it can influence matters on a subatomic level and can manipulate events in one's lives. Countless books and movies have shown as discussed this at length including the movie 'The Secret' which explains the Law of Attraction.
Thus, not only is it theoretically possible, but in essence it's a physical law that allows one to manifest in reality whatever it is that he wants in life just by communicating the same to his own subconscious.
In recent times, quantum physics has been speaking the same language as our age old religions of the world. Starting from explanation of terms such as psychic, esp, supernatural, etc, this subject now expounds the belief that the ancient religions held - That the reality we live in are essentially the product of our own minds.
It can be concluded that the power of the subconscious mind is truly vast in scope and immense in possibilities and hence developing the same should never be overlooked. Not only minor behavioral changes but it can be your gateway to a whole new wonderful life!
