The Subconscious Mind - How are you programmed?
I've been spending so much time recently researching and reviewing the many intricacies that are the subconscious mind. Before I delve into 'why', let me first share how I define both the conscious mind and the subconscious mind
The Conscious Mind: How you learn to ride a bike.
The Subconscious Mind: How you 'remember' to ride a bike.
You can see by the way I defined these two specific aspects of our mind, that the conscious mind involves what is currently taking place, while the subconscious mind is how we recall what has taken place. I like to think of the subconscious mind as our human 'hard drive'. As we know, a hard drive is the hardware component that stores all of your digital content on a computer. It is our subconscious mind that stores all of our personal content within our being. Research shows that 96 to 97% of all that we do on a daily basis comes from what we have programmed into our subconscious mind.
So, we're basically going through life on 'auto-pilot'
Our likes and dislikes, decisions, feelings, and thoughts in general, all come from what we've programmed into our subconscious mind many, many years ago. Now get ready for this. The majority of what is programmed in our subconscious mind, and what we utilize continuously on a daily basis, was programmed in our first seven years of life! Those immediate knee-jerk reactions, the fears, the notions, and the majority of our thoughts stem from a hard drive that was programmed by a little kid. You see, we were all 'Whiz Kids'!
This information is important because most of us (That Oneness Guy included), continue to allow so much of our lives to be dictated and directed by that initial programming. And the only way that the programming of the subconscious mind is changed is through our feelings. My guru Dr. Wayne Dyer always said: "A change of feeling is a change of Destiny". This is the ONLY way the subconscious mind, and in turn, our lives change. If you are trying to manifest change in your life to ANY degree, you must first change your programmed thoughts about your intentions that reside within your subconscious mind. And this is only done through your FEELINGS.
"If the feeling of your intention is persistent until it becomes your DOMINANT feeling, the attainment of your ideal is absolutely inevitable"
The subconscious mind doesn't know the difference between what we consider 'good' and 'bad'. It will continually program all that we place into it through our feelings. This is why spiritual messengers always remind us to carefully monitor our thoughts, because our thoughts become our feelings, and our dominant feelings program the subconscious mind. So, if we go through the days of our lives (not the Soap Opera) with negative thoughts like 'poor me', 'nothing ever goes my way' etc. it's no surprise that this is what keeps showing up in our lives.
We're all IT experts! Let's reprogram our hard drives!
Remember when I said that the subconscious mind is how we 'remember' to ride a bike? Well, that's a perfect example of a feeling that's become imprinted on our subconscious mind. Many of us have set that dominant feeling into our subconscious mind many, many years ago, and it still serves us just fine. Consider this example when you want to see a change in your life. This is what I meant when I said 'if the feeling of your intention is persistent until it becomes the DOMINANT feeling, the attainment of your ideal is absolutely inevitable'. Hold that specific image in your mind and in your mind's eye. 'FEEL' it, even if it doesn't exist in your reality yet. Use your imagination in all of its glory. Remember that everything you see in this world was once imagined. Don't waver. Do it until it's just like 'riding a bike'. Can you feel it?
