This is something you should do if you start a new journey that requires a new career or routine. Many people aren’t aware that our subconscious plays a major part in how we think, act, and live our lives. When we make a major change in our lives, those attributes change. If not prepared, it could be a rough start. The subconscious mind stores all of your previous life experiences, your beliefs, your memories, your skills, all situations you’ve been through and all images you’ve ever seen.
According to Wikipedia, Sigmund Freud first used the term “subconscious” to describe associations and impulses that are not accessible to consciousness. He later abandoned the term in favor of unconscious, noting the following:
“If someone talks of subconsciousness, I cannot tell whether he means the term topographically – to indicate something lying in the mind beneath consciousness – or qualitatively – to indicate another consciousness, a subterranean one, as it were. He is probably not clear about any of it. The only trustworthy antithesis is between conscious and unconscious.”[
Think about it like this: When driving a car and talking to a friend, the conscious mind is the one engaged in conversation. Our subconscious mind is the one who keeps automatically doing everything needed to drive the car.
How do you reprogram your subconscious if I have a negative mindset?
Life experiences: The key is to create NEW experiences. You do this by disassociating with people or things that created bad experiences.
- Explore a different experience each month.
- Talk to a different person each day.
- Read a different topic each week.
- Learn a different language.
- Hang out with a different friend each time you go out.
- Take a chance on something new each time it’s presented.
- Have more than one hobby.
Your beliefs: First, understand what you believe. Your belief is YOUR belief. Even if you don’t always live up to something, doesn’t mean you don’t believe in it. Not everyone is going to understand and agree with your beliefs, but you can’t lose focus.
Your memories: Your memories are the base of your subconscious. We can’t control what happens to us, but we can control how we deal with them. Our memories come from good experiences and bad experiences. If we decide to look at the good, no matter how hard things get, our subconscious mind will remind us of the good things. This can only happen if you look for the good when things aren’t going as you would like them to.
Your skills: There is a difference between talent and skill. Each of us has talent, but not all of us are skilled in that talent. You have to practice, practice, practice…… This will help develop skill. Repetition creates muscle memory. Muscle memory creates discipline.
- Talent: a special often athletic, creative, or artistic aptitude;
a natural ability to do something.
- Skill: the ability to do something well; expertise.
- Muscle memory: the ability to reproduce a particular movement without conscious thought, acquired as a result of frequent repetition of that movement.
Situations you’ve been through; Images you’ve seen: When we go through things, the images of that experience begins to develop in our subconsciousness. This is what develops your subconscious. No matter what you’ve gone through in your past, you need to reprogram your subconscious to develop healing, growth, maturity, positive thinking, and confidence. We can’t avoid offense in life, but we can forgive and move on. If you are someone who grew up in a negative household, had negative parents and family members, and a negative environment, YOU CAN DO THIS. It may take longer, but it is possible. If things are beginning to go wrong, YOU CAN DO THIS. Train your subconscious to produce positivism NOW. You will begin to view your circumstances or situations differently. Reprogramming your subconscious begins with your decision to make a positive change in your life. YOU CAN DO IT.
