How to activate the subconscious mind and make it work in your favor
Are you interested in using your powerful subconscious mind to achieve and claim the desires, which are rightfully yours, anyway? Without going into theory, I want to discuss specific methods on how to activate the subconscious mind with you today. Before proceeding, it would be helpful to first understand some terms and concepts, though. So, let’s dive right into it.
The powerful subconscious
These days, we often hear or read about the term subconscious or subconscious mind. It is today a commonly used general term in connection with thought, power of thought, healing, etc. However, even though everyone talks about it, many still don’t completely understand its nature.
While I could write one article following another, regarding the subliminal and the conscious mind, it is sufficient for this blog to remember that your subconscious mind is an eager servant willing to obey your commands.
In simpler words, it absorbs, listens to and acts according to what you feed it through your often repeated thoughts and words, as well as thought patterns and affirmations.
Understand the power of your thoughts
Are the thoughts so powerful? Yes, definitely they are! The marvelous success of the titles – “Think and Grow Rich”, “The Power of Positive Thinking”, “The Secret” and many more books are a living testimony to this phenomenon.
Therefore, almost every person can and should use this immense power of the mind to manifest abundance, money, unlimited wealth, good health, knowledge, power, position, healthy body weight and a satisfying relationship.
From time immemorial, countless successful people have unlocked this amazing potential by activating the subconscious mind. They may have done it knowingly or unknowingly, secretly or through the knowledge of others, but successful people have certain habits, patterns of thought that make them achieve what they truly want in life.
How to correctly operate the subconscious?
From health to money; from education to a life partner and from poverty to power, if the subconscious mind is so powerful to open the doorways to your wishes, then the million-dollar question is: “how to activate the subconscious mind?”
The basic concept
Whenever you think hard and intensely about something, you give your subconscious mind an order. This obedient servant of yours manifests your thought in your physical world. It sees to it that tangible products, events, circumstances find their way into your present life. So, where you are right now or what your state of affairs or your circumstances are, is all just a reflection of your thought patterns.
You can change your life
If you are not satisfied with your life right now, then change your thinking patterns for the future and you will change what life will bring to you. In other words, you have exercised your choice in life.
Actually, it’s pretty easy to explain this in theory, but not so simple for many of us to master in real life. Therefore, I want to introduce you to some very important and practical methods and steps to activate the subconscious mind. Practice them diligently and benefit immensely like thousands of others.
Yes, it does take practice, just like everything else that needs mastery in life. Just think about it: Why do you believe that only a small percentage of all people on this planet are actually billionaires? Yes, that’s right – Because they are the only ones that really figured and mastered the secret to their subconscious mind deep enough to reach that point.
I actually do understand why they don’t want to share this secret. It’s a pretty tough job they’ve delivered. By that, I’m not talking about the work they’ve put into their business; that’s only a secondary factor here. I rather refer to the labor, effort and time they’ve invested in themselves.
The changes they’ve made within, and the hard work on reprogramming their minds. This is, overtime, more exhausting than running a company, believe it or not! Still, there are a few basic steps they all applied.
The methods and steps to activate the subconscious
1. Mental house-cleaning
Before you begin to tap into the forces of the subconscious, it is very necessary to start with a completely clean state of mind. This means that all negative beliefs, thoughts, ideas, including doubts about the powers of the subconscious and the effectiveness of this system, must be flushed out.
Negative thinking leads to unspeakable damage to the productivity of the mind. If the person repeatedly speaks negatively or thinks or surrounds himself with negative people, he will attract more negative people and not so pleasant circumstances will take place in his life. In short, positive growth in life could be a big question mark.
On the other hand, if you have the habit of regularly feeding your subconscious mind with positive thoughts, positive affirmation, and positive self-talk, you will invite positive change and positive outcomes. From that moment on, just feed yourself positive thoughts and stop all negative brain chatter.
2. Watch your thought process like a guardian
To consciously observe your thoughts is the key to your personal progress and success. I also call this “mindful thinking.”
The best way to use the unlimited power of your subconscious mind is to first become aware of what is really going on in your mind.
Then, as the dutiful guardian, let the positive, constructive, and healthy thoughts be there and multiply, while all negative thoughts are thrown out. You must be sure to ward off all negative thoughts and replace them immediately with a positive one, instead.
Are you beginning to see what I meant by them putting so much work into themselves? It is a strenuous task, because no new negative thoughts are allowed to enter the mind or system.
Is it not a fact that most people hardly care what they think about in the course of a day? This unawareness leads to the manifestation of many unpleasant circumstances without the person even being conscious about it.
Usually, unsuccessful individuals let all kinds of thoughts wander through their minds. On the other hand, successful people are supercharged with positive thinking and they are extremely careful.
They watch out for what they allow to enter their minds by exercising tremendous control over their thoughts.
In this way, you activate the law of attraction through your subconscious mind when you select and control your thought patterns and self-talk to attract what you want in life.
The difference between successful people and unsuccessful people is simple: Successful people think and talk about what they want, and unsuccessful people think about and focus on what they do not want.
3. Set a goal to activate the subconscious mind
Now, write your intention down clearly and in every detail. A goal is just a wish until it is not written down. As you write down your desire, you connect your brain to activity (Neuro Associated Programming), which tells your subconscious exactly what you really want to accomplish or manifest through this particular intent.
While the subconscious mind is very powerful, it is also very simple. It does not have its own “brain”. So, whatever you want to manifest, you have to describe to yourself.
That’s the way to organize your subconscious mind. So the secret or the trick to achieve whatever you want is to know exactly what you want first.
For example, if you want to have a luxury car, then you have to tell the name of the car manufacturer, the model of the car, the variant, the color and other similar details.
Do not just say a luxury car, say: “I want the white Mercedes Maybach S 650 V – 12 in black and beige interior leather design.”
Later you develop a game plan and implement it.
Without a clear goal, you are like a kite flying aimlessly!
4. Make a plan to achieve your goals
Congratulations on setting crystal clear goals. Next, you need to set the action plan to make sure that you are really working with an intention to reach your desire. If you do something regularly, it becomes a habit.
Divide your target into smaller or short-term goals and make strategies to achieve those aims.
Let us better understand this with an example. Let’s say you want to increase your income and earn more money to raise your standard of living and prosperity. You currently earn a modest income of about $ 20,000 a year.
If you follow the steps and suggestions described in this article, you want to activate your subconscious to use the infinite universal resource. As a result, you choose to earn $ 100,000 per year within 24 months.
That’s great, but it may not always be possible to jump from $ 20,000 to $ 100,000, which means 5 times more income.
It is not impossible either, but there must be an element of faith and belief in the law of attraction to be triggered by your subconscious mind.
It’s a big job! Therefore, it is suggested that you do it at some intervals to strengthen your belief system. For example, remember to increase your income by 50% ($ 30,000 a year) over the next six months, followed by another 50% increase in four months to $ 45,000 a year.
Right there you’ve seen that magic of mind works, and then the third subgoal could reach $ 60,000 in 4 months and so on.
Set mini-goals as milestones
Have you noticed that you are actually working on the final goal with a series of smaller goals? It’s easier to convince yourself that a set of small achievable goals makes it possible to accomplish just the goal in one setting.
With every success, your entire system is strengthened with confidence, faith and conviction that you can do it! Of course, you need a long-term plan and several short-term strategies to succeed every time.
Therefore, as a fourth step, you should make a list of everything you think you are doing or mobilizing that will move you toward your goal.
At such a time, writing your plan and creating a list will make your wishes stronger and strengthen your belief that the achievement of the goal is possible for you.
5. Check your progress frequently
This is the fifth point in the series of steps to activate the subconscious mind. By regularly reviewing your progress towards your goals, you can focus on what you want to achieve. As you frequently overlook your intentions, you automatically integrate and reinforce your desire.
This also plants the seeds deep in your subconscious, and it will literally help you achieve everything you ever wanted.
Another suggestion in this context is that you should write down your daily goals in the present tense in order to better benefit from this tip.
It also means that every day you have to take some concrete and specific action according to your original plan or strategy. Doing something every day brings you closer to your destination so you can maintain your drive.
6. Make affirmations or self-suggestions
If you are interested in the areas of the subconscious or the mystery or the law of attraction, then it is very likely that you already have an autosuggestion
7. Practice visualizations to activate the subconscious mind
Visualize that your goals have been repeatedly achieved. Look at it as if it were already a reality. When you relax with your eyes closed, you’ll see a clear picture on your mental screen of where you’ve achieved what you wanted.
The clearer the picture and the more often this exercise, the faster it will manifest in your life. For example, imagine standing next to the model of the car you want to buy.
Visualization is similar to autosuggestion – a powerful subconscious exercise. It feeds you images that you visualize into your subconscious. Nevertheless, visualization requires much more concentration, effort, and purpose than autosuggestion.
For best results in visualization, create “synthetic experiences” and involve other senses to feel sounds, touch feelings, see clear colorful shapes and smells.
Put your emotions and feelings as strong as possible to work while visualizing. Once you can feel the happiness and excitement of already calling what you desire yours, then it must manifest into your reality!
It is important that you get the same feeling of joy that you would have if you actually achieved your goal. Create the emotions of blissfulness, satisfaction and gratitude that you would have if you had really just received your wish.
The more frequently and more intensively you apply the emotions to your visualizations, the more unstoppable you become.
8. Create a dream board/vision board to activate the subconscious mind
There are a number of ways to change or activate the subconscious, such as repetition (already discussed under affirmations), identification with someone (example parent or role model), intense emotions and guided imagery. It is the most proactive and easiest method and we just discussed it under the step “visualization.”
Here is another useful and effective technique called “dream board.” This is nothing more than creating a pictorial version of the target you want to achieve.
All you have to do is download and print pictures of what you want to get. Also, cut them out of newspapers, magazines, etc.
Next, put them on a large board and paste the board in a place where you can see it every day and as often as possible. You can also insert these images into an art album and browse through the pages regularly.
For example, you might want to buy an expensive car or a large house in a posh area. Perhaps you wish to reach your target weight and reduce your dress size by 2 numbers. Really not a problem, because you just have to select the right images.
Scientists say that this method works because of the R.A.S. (Reticular Activating System) within our brain. This is our “antenna” or “radar,” which attracts things that we focus on.
What Earl Nightingale said, “The mind is moving in the direction of our presently prevailing thoughts.” You get a steady flow of ideas and energy to achieve your goals.
That’s the power of the subconscious!
It is assumed that your subconscious mind is 30,000 times stronger than your consciousness. Most of the successful people and motivational speakers and gurus like Brian Tracy, Zig Ziglar, Jack Canfield, Dr. Wayne W. Dyer, Eckhart Tolle, Dr. Joe Dispenza, Rupert Spira, Joe Vitale, Robert Kiyosaki, Oprah, etc., know how to unleash the hidden power of their subconscious mind.
The subconscious mind is our source of energy. If too little energy flows into your life, you have to start with changes on the subconscious level. However, it must begin at the conscious level. In order to achieve lasting changes in our lives, we must change the thinking of our subconscious.
Our subconscious behaves like a programmed computer. Therefore, to change the output of the computer, we need to change the programming. If it is not retrained, our habits will continue to dominate, as willpower can only dent the surface.
Tony Robbins once said, “All personal change must take place on the subconscious level.”
The truth is that there is no secret at all, and to activate your subconscious mind, you do not have to use any special technique.
All you need is a clear goal and a burning desire to reach the goal. The intensity of desire gives the subconscious the energy that will in turn point the way to its fulfillment.
So go ahead, touch the sky, with the mastery of the self, through regular daily practice!
