Bending Reality With The Power Of Your Subconscious Mind

Bending Reality With The Power Of Your Subconscious Mind
You probably already know that much of the brain’s processing goes on in the subconscious mind. This mysterious part of you is responsible for your intuitions and your dreams, and it is constantly working in ways that your conscious mind doesn’t understand.
However, if you can tap into the true power of your subconscious mind, you open yourself up to a new world of success, happiness, and self-knowledge. Most people don’t know how to do this, but those who do have skills that dramatically enhance their lives and help them to get ahead.
In this guide, we’ll look at bending reality with the subconscious mind. First, we’ll help you understand how this part of the mind works and outline the benefits of learning how to activate subconscious mind power. Then, we’ll move on to explore how to reprogram your mind through a series of techniques that you can start using today.
Never Underestimate The Power Of The Mind
We commonly underestimate the power of the mind, and this can hold us back from achieving our full potential. We’re typically conditioned to believe that the limits of the mind are constrained by what we learn from Western medicine.
For example, the vast majority of the population likely believes that we can’t bend reality with our minds. However, other doctrines – such as the Law of Attraction – tell us that we can develop mind control power and that we can play a major role in shaping how the world responds to us.
Theories about the power of the subconscious mind have been around since ancient times, but are often rejected in favor of Western belief systems. In spite of this, there’s evidence to believe that subconscious psychology is empowering and useful.
So, what exactly can the subconscious mind do once we tap into its ability to bend reality? Let’s turn to some of the specific benefits.
Benefits Of Harnessing Your Subconscious Mind
Harnessing Your Subconscious MindThe benefits of harnessing your subconscious mind are incredible. Many of them enhance your general capacities that boost your self-awareness and your sense of purpose.
For example, you enjoy higher levels of creativity. You are able to focus without distraction, and access thoughts, feelings and ideas that were previously obscured from view. Your problem-solving skills also improve – your mind becomes sharper, working more quickly and generating a wider range of solutions to choose from.
You have a new ability to transcend limiting beliefs. Instead of being controlled by them, you can access and then adapt the beliefs that keep you from fulfilling your full potential.
This power over your own thoughts can also help you meet goals… like weight loss. You can change the old thought patterns that keep you trapped in an unhealthy relationship with food, losing more weight at a faster rate.
Life also simply makes more sense when you can tap into the subconscious, creating a sense of happiness and purpose. You are increasingly able to identify your real passions and values, and it becomes easier to live in accordance with them.
Finally, there are benefits that result from having increased self-knowledge and control of your thoughts. Harnessing the power of the subconscious mind naturally makes you feel more confident, empowering you to make major plans and follow them through.
In addition, all of the above contribute to enhanced physical and mental health and well-being. Once you can access your subconscious mind and instill relaxation there, you experience a deeper and longer-lasting sense of calm.
Whatever you want, you can reshape your thinking at the most profound level, and these changes in your thinking will influence what you attract into your life. For example, you might reprogram your mind for success or reprogram your mind for wealth.
Unlocking The Power Of Your Subconscious Mind
Unlocking subconscious mind power is the key to accessing your untapped potential. For example, you can develop:
The ability to heal yourself from the inside out – you can more readily intuit what’s wrong and can exert influence over both body and mind.
A greater sense of empathy and understanding for others – you can read others more accurately, sensing their emotions.
Improved memory with greater detail – you have more influence over what you remember and can tap into details from the distant past that you might think you have forgotten.
Super-easy access to life solutions – with your improved problem-solving skills and clearer sense of purpose, you immediately spot solutions and know-how to implement them.
Creative abilities you never dreamed possible – your finely honed intuitive faculties and better access to your imagination allows you to be bolder and more innovative.
Dramatically enhanced learning abilities — you are free to choose what to focus on, and you can pick up skills very quickly.
Understanding and recognition to the root of fears & phobias — you can discover and reflect on the original causes of phobias, buried in the subconscious mind.
Enhanced clarity of thoughts — everything makes more sense to you, including your own feelings, desires and motivations.
How To Reprogram Your Mind & Supercharge Your Subconscious Power
Now that you have a good sense of the benefits associated with the power of the subconscious mind, you can begin to learn more about mind programming – and, in particular, more about how to reprogram your subconscious mind. We’ll walk you through a range of exercises and powerful mind control techniques, and we’ll explain how you can tap into three particular kinds of power.
The subconscious mind is well-defended, so it may take a few attempts before you feel that you are really accessing its power. With all of the techniques in this guide, the most important thing is that you approach them with openness and curiosity.
Subconscious Mind Exercises
Mind ExercisesWhen learning mind power techniques, it’s vital to start by taking the time to prepare your mind. It’s hardest to access our subconscious mind’s potential when we are anxious, distracted or busy. So, before you try any exercises, make sure that you do something that relaxes you.
This can be a deep breathing exercise, listening to a relaxing piece of music, taking a hot bath or going for a walk in a quiet place. It doesn’t matter what you do, provided it puts you into a calm state and helps you focus in on the technique that you’re practicing.
Relatedly, make sure you also get away from external distractions. Turn off your phone, choose a quiet location, and pick a time of day when you’re unlikely to be disturbed. Subconscious mind exercises require a good deal of concentration, and the conscious mind quickly begins to dominate once practical concerns arise.
Time of day can matter as well. Many people find it easiest to tune in and harness the power of their subconscious either late at night or early in the morning. Before bed, you are typically relaxed and less concerned with day-to-day worries. Meanwhile, in the morning you have recently emerged from your dreams, and so are “closer” to your subconscious mind.
You may want to experiment with both times of day to see which feels most effective.
The Power Of Positivity
One subtype of subconscious mind exercises focuses on the power of positivity. If you’re going to reprogram your mind, one of the best things that you can do is to make it tune in for positivity.
After all, as the Law of Attraction notes, like attracts like. So, if you can make your mind powerfully positive, you will exert a strong magnetic pull on positive things, attracting them into your life. In this way, your subconscious mind begins to bend reality, helping you to achieve all your goals.
To develop the subconscious power of positivity, there are six major techniques you should use. Firstly, to be more positive, surround yourself with positive people. They will influence you at a subconscious level, beginning to retune your mind. Secondly, try to transmit a lot of positivity to those people, as you will get back what you give out. In this way, you’ll create a subconscious positive feedback loop.
Power Of Affirmations
The third subconscious positivity exercise is to monitor your words, making sure you use positive language. When you catch yourself thinking of something negative, recognize and interrupt yourself to say something more positive instead.
You can also tap into the power of words by reciting affirmations like “I am a positive, successful person.” Over time, this repetition changes the default attitudes of your subconscious.
Meanwhile, keep a daily gratitude journal where you write down 3-5 positive things every night before bed. This pre-loads your subconscious mind with positive associations, and it will begin to re-calibrate every night as you sleep.
Finally, try to adopt a “creator mindset.” In other words, tell yourself you’re the architect of your own life, and that you always have choices. Relatedly, read positive stories that reinforce how much you can achieve, allowing more positive messages to seep into your subconscious.
The Power Of Creative Visualization
Creative visualization is another of the most effective techniques for developing subconscious mind power. In brief, creative visualization involves building up a vivid mental picture of what you want things to be like. You can focus on any aspect of reality that you want to bend – for example, your self-image, your career, or your love life.
When practiced frequently, creative visualization trains your subconscious to believe in what you are visualizing, aligning your mind to your goal. In accordance with the Law of Attraction, this helps you to attract and pursue the changes you want to make. In addition, research shows that this subconscious rewiring technique reduces stress, sparks inspiration, makes you feel happier, and improves your ability to focus.
Creative visualization is a skill that gets better the more you practice it. However, you can start developing that skill today by setting aside 5-10 minutes in a quiet, calm place. Enter a relaxed state by focusing on deep breathing for a few minutes, then start to concentrate on what you want to achieve.
Build as many details as you can into the picture. For example, if you’re visualizing a fulfilling job, picture every aspect of the environment and imagine the people you would see. Add all of your senses into the visualization, considering what you might smell, hear, touch and even taste.
Finally, ensure that you’re also imagining the emotions you would feel (such as pride, joy and excitement). Do your best to really inhabit this landscape in your mind, and feel what it would be like to be there in reality.
When you open your eyes, do at least one practical thing that contributes toward your goal. If you keep up this routine, your subconscious mind will work harder and harder to make your dream a reality.
The Power Of Tuning In
Finally, you can tap even further into the power of your subconscious mind if you do exercises that focus on tuning in. Even some of the simple strategies discussed above will help – for example, deep breathing, deliberate relaxation and ensuring that you have quiet time to yourself.
However, if you’re going to take full advantage of the power of tuning in, it’s important to develop your meditation skills. Ideally, this will involve a daily meditation practice. If you’re already used to meditating, you can feel free to choose any technique that works well for you. If you’re new to meditation, we’ll offer you a quick guide to one effective way of tuning in.
Once you’ve relaxed and focused your mind through a few minutes of deep breathing, begin scanning down your body. Start at the top of your head, and work all the way down to your toes. As you do so, notice how each area feels. Which parts are loose and relax, and which parts are tense or sore? Try not to make any negative or positive judgments, but simply to notice sensations.
When you emerge from the body scanning sensation, you may notice that you feel much more in touch with your whole body. This exercise promotes unity between all parts of your body and mind, including the subconscious.
Another way of tapping into your inner self is to write stream of consciousness diary entries every day. This means writing whatever comes to mind, even if the thoughts seem disjointed.
Try to do this for at least three pages – every word that emerges comes straight from your subconscious. When practiced regularly, this technique also builds a deeper connection between the subconscious and conscious parts of your mind, strengthening your ability to use your subconscious to shape your reality.
