Controlling Your Subconscious Mind
Your subconscious mind is the key to living the life you want to live. Controlling your subconscious mind is necessary for accomplishing goals and acquiring wealth. You can acquire happiness as well as build great relationships.
Hill states that your subconscious mind stores every impulse of thought that reaches your objective mind through your five senses. These thoughts may be called upon later through your memories. Your subconscious mind never stops working. It is there 24 hours a day seven days a week.
The Connection To Infinite Intelligence
Your subconscious mind is your connection to infinite intelligence. It uses the power derived from infinite intelligence to convert your desires into their physical equivalents. It uses the most practical means to accomplish this conversion.
You cannot control your subconscious mind completely. Inadvertent thoughts do find their way in. The control you do have is accomplished by voluntarily thinking, speaking, and visualizing your plan or desire. It takes time to connect with infinite intelligence through your controlled thoughts. So don’t get discouraged.
To connect with infinite intelligence and turn your dreams into reality is a process. You must trust the process because mastering this process takes time. Patience and persistence are your best friends.
Since your subconscious mind never stops working you must train yourself to control your thoughts. Your subconscious mind stores are controlled thoughts but also works inadvertently from your uncontrolled thoughts. It can bring you fear and poverty as easily as it can wealth.
Develop a daily practice of controlling your thoughts through positive affirmations and meditation. The more you practice, the more you will begin to believe. Continued practice will turn your belief into faith.
You must be persistent until you have reached the level of faith. Once you reach the level of faith, you will be able to control the negative thoughts and replace them with positive thoughts. For example, let’s say you receive an unexpectedly large bill. Without faith your first thoughts will probably be fear and how are you gonna pay for it. With faith, your mind will be calm because you know that the money will come to pay it in full.
Your subconscious mind works best when your thoughts are mixed with feelings and emotions. It doesn’t work as well with thoughts coming from the reasoning part of your mind. As I discussed last week, sex is our strongest emotion. Tapping into this emotion will increase the output of your subconscious mind.
Hill further states, “There is evidence to support that theory that only emotion allies thoughts have any actionable influence upon the subconscious mind.” Therefore, don’t just think about your desire. Feel the emotions that you will have after manifesting that desire. Before visualizing how your life will be, think of something that evokes an emotion in you.
Remember that emotions can be positive or negative. Here is a list of the seven major positive and negative emotions.
Positive and negative emotions cannot occupy the mind at the same time. Only one can dominate. Avoid negative emotions. Make sure that positive emotions become your dominating influence in your subconscious mind.
