Your conscious mind and subconscious mind are both within your brain with separate functions. The beauty is that you have some control of both of them. You may have heard the term, “conscious control” used before. That’s because our conscious controls part of the subconscious.
Your subconscious mind can be compared to a computer. Like a computer you can add and remove programs. Unlike a computer, your subconscious can take on huge quantities of information and process all of it at incredible speeds.
The first time you learn something new, you must think of how to do it consciously. Skills like learning to walk, feeding ourselves, and riding a bicycle, are usually learned by listening to or watching another do the skill so we can figure out how we can do it. I remember the first time I learned how to drive a stick shift. I thought I would never get it, as I jerked the car back and forth from one gear to the next. Of course it didn’t take long before I was shifting gears, shifting lanes and with a drink in my hand. Good thing we didn’t have cell phones yet! Once these skills have been learned and programmed into your subconscious mind, you no longer consciously need to think about it. Your subconscious takes over the automatic pilot part of your mind, unlike the first time you ever tried it, and allows you to perform without thinking of “how to”.
Your subconscious also takes care of your autonomic system. Can you imagine if you consciously had to think about every heart beat and every breath you took? That wouldn’t leave much time to drive a car! Your subconscious mind deals with hundreds of different tasks simultaneously among other responsibilities which allows the conscious mind for a higher plane of thinking, reasoning and learning.
Here is where the Law of Attraction comes in.
Our beliefs are usually formed (by us) and then become embedded into our subconscious. Your subconscious mind does not pass judgment; it only accepts what your conscious mind told it. Let’s use money as an example:
If you believe that poor people are good and rich are bad, or “money is the root of all evil” – your subconscious mind will have a difficult time letting you be rich because it believes that being rich would make you a bad person, and that money is evil and therefore not good for you! That in effect is the law of attraction, created by your thoughts, which became your beliefs. Consistent thoughts turn into subconscious beliefs, which is what we will attract into our lives. It’s time to get your own Skin in the Game!
On the flip side, subconscious programming can be very positive if you believe that it’s your right to be wealthy. Do you believe we were all put on this earth to live life with abundance? A great mind power wealth belief is having more money enables you to help more people.
I listened to motivational speaker Zig Ziglar many years ago and remember being so inspired by his message. He said that if you want be a millionaire than surround yourself around millionaires. If you want to move up the ladder in life, spend time with people that are either at the top or getting to the top. If you want to be a better golfer, play golf with better golfers.The rich spend time with the rich? The poor spend time with the poor? The lonely spend time with the lonely? The happy spend time with the happy?
To create new subconscious programming, find people who are already successfully running those programs that you want. If you want to move up the company ladder, have lunch with the higher-ups, and make sure you play golf with them!
Do what they do, imitate their beliefs and watch in delight as your new thought patterns begin to emerge. The first step is to become aware!
Let me know thoughts. I’d love to hear from you.
