Subconscious mind is one of my favorite topics to study, simply because it is topic that really impacts everything in your life. Now, I would say 90% of what happens in our life is a result of our subconscious mind and to change your life you have to change your subconscious mind.
Bob Proctor was one person who I learnt a lot from regarding the subconscious mind. He talked about why people get the results that they do. It is because they have been programmed like that. Like you probably have a good idea before an exam happens as to what kind of results you would be getting. It is not just for results but the thing actually applies to other things like the circumstances and people you attract pretty much the reality you live in.
Now, what is the subconscious mind exactly. Bob Proctor defined this as a paradigm. The paradigm is multitude of habits, thoughts, feelings, actions etc. Your subconscious mind is programmed by the information you feed to it. Whatever beliefs you have about yourself or life in general are fed into the subconscious mind.
So, the thing is a lot of people go through life without understanding the basics of how reality works. People attend seminars, read different books on self improvement, try working harder and do God knows whatever it takes to get the results that they want. But the thing is that you have change the way you think in order to get different results. A lot of times you will find that despite putting in hours of study, you ended up flunking the exam. You tried so hard to get the person of your dreams only to be left or rejected by them. You did everything in your power to win the game but still lost.
Why do things happen the way they do? The answer is because of the subconscious mind. If you believe that you can only score 70% in academics, then despite doing everything you will find that somehow you ended up scoring 70%. If you believe that getting 95% is hard, then obviously you will find it extremely hard to score 95%. Reality is being reflected to you based your limiting beliefs, ideas etc.
Now, coming back to the topic you have to change your mind to get different results. Now, here is the thing. Subconscious mind is hard to change. Perhaps that is my limiting belief. You could probably think that the subconscious mind is easy to change. That ways maybe you could change it easily. But in my opinion, I have seen that people usually don’t change the way they think. The mind has been shaped since their childhood and it usually stays the same throughout their life. This is a reason why habits are difficult to break. The paradigm does not want to be changed. They like to remain the same.
A lot of people use affirmations to change their paradigm. Affirmations refers to saying or listening to words being fed straight into your mind. Some people use subliminals to change their mind. Now, a very effective way to change your system is by viewing how you want to be. See yourself thinking the thoughts that you would want to think, feeling the emotions that you would want to feel and doing the things that you love doing. When you start to view yourself in that way and start to take action that makes you feel like that then you make progress a lot faster.
So, that is how you can change your paradigm or the subconscious mind.
