“Reality is a projection of your thoughts or the things you habitually think about.”
The majority of people go through life having only accessed a fragment of the power of the mind.
Are you aware that your mind is one of the strongest and most useful power you possess?
Imagine being able to completely harness the unlimited power of the mind. If you seeking happiness, success and boundless opportunities in your life, then…
The quickest and most direct approach to accomplish this is by tapping into this power.
If you are wondering…
“How can I change my reality by tapping into the unlimited power of the mind?”
Before you can begin to harness the mind’s limitless power, you must have a basic understanding of it. The first thing you need to be aware of is:
The mind operates on two levels of operation: conscious and subconscious.
Your conscious mind operates during the hours you are awake. This is where you process all the information you get through your five senses.
Your conscious mind controls the thoughts that you are currently thinking about. This comprises all the sensations, perceptions, memories, and feelings you’re experiencing right now.
Think of your conscious mind as the tip of an iceberg. It only makes up about 5% of your thinking.
The rest of the iceberg, the part that you cannot see, is submerged in water. Like the submerged iceberg, your subconscious mind makes up 95% of your thinking.
From the moment you are born, your subconscious mind begins to store your memories, thoughts, feelings, and beliefs. When you go to sleep, your conscious mind goes to sleep as well.
But not your subconscious mind. It never sleeps, nor does it take a break. This is the part of your mind that shapes the way you think, react, and act. It is the part of the mind that calls the shots.
Your emotions and instincts guide your subconscious mind. It doesn’t think or make decisions. Its purpose is to help you meet your most fundamental needs and desires.
It does not discriminate, nor is it able to distinguish between what is true and what is false. As a result, it will save and encrypt all your conscious mind’s beliefs, thoughts, and opinions.
When it comes to harnessing the unlimited power of the mind, the first thing you need to work on is…
Do you have the belief that you have limited abilities, skills, and intelligence? Are you ready to put that belief behind you and steer your life in the direction that you desire?
If you’re ready to make a shift from your current situation, let’s start with a statement I cited earlier:
Your subconscious mind believes everything that comes from your conscious mind.
Understand this statement. It holds the key to creating the future that you desire. I’ll even go to the extent of suggesting that you make it your mantra.
Because it will help you unlock the power of your mind.
This means that you can program your subconscious mind with new beliefs. The idea that the brain stops evolving at a certain age has been around for a long time. Modern science has shown that the brain never stops evolving as a result of learning.
Your brain can adapt and change as a result of a new thought and experience. This is neuroplasticity: the ability of the brain to re-wire itself.
Let’s explore four strategies that can reprogram your mind:
For ages, successful people have used visualization techniques to imagine their desired outcomes. Visualization is a powerful way to reprogram your mind.
It stimulates your mind to generate thoughts to help you reach your goals.
Spend 10 minutes each day on positive visualization. Be sure to conjure up positive images in your mind while exuding pleasant emotions.
Overwhelm yourself with feelings of gratitude, love, and joy. When you are doing your visualization exercise, make it as multisensory as possible.
Imagine yourself being able to see, smell, hear, feel, and taste it. Visualize a specific scenario make it as detailed as possible and engage all your senses.
Make them as real and vivid as possible. Your subconscious mind will perceive them as true!
Binaural beats are another approach to reprograming your subconscious mind. These are audio recordings that change the frequency of your brainwaves.
Binaural beats work on the fact that both ears will receive different frequencies. As a result of this, the left and right hemispheres of your brain will harmonize their brainwaves.
Each ear detects a different pitch, and your brain will adjust by locating a frequency in the middle. This resulting third tone produced by your brain is a binaural beat.
There are many benefits to binaural beats. This includes boosting the mood, lowering stress, increasing focus, and fostering creativity.
You can combine binaural beats with visualization and affirmations to change your thought patterns.
Another technique to embed positive messages into your subconscious is to write affirmations. Then, recite them throughout the day.
To ensure that your affirmations produce the desired outcome, here are some suggestions:
Word your affirmations concisely, positively, and in the present tense. Say “I am strong and smart” instead of “I will become strong and smart” or “I am not weak and dumb.”
Your subconscious mind is incapable of processing negative information. It is only aware of the present moment.
Your subconscious mind cannot differentiate between fact and fiction. When using affirmations, align your feelings with your words.
The potency of affirmations is in your emotions. Hence, you need to feel the statements that you are affirming.
Hypnosis is an effective tool to reprogram self-sabotaging behaviors, unwanted habits and phobias. Think of it as a “speed dial” for your subconscious mind.
You can experience hypnosis by engaging a hypnotherapist or hypnotist. Hypnosis reprograms your subconscious mind via stories, metaphors, or hypnotic suggestions.
Hypnosis is often misunderstood and lot of people have a negative concept about it. Yet, it is a legitimate psychological treatment method.
Make sure that you get a certified hypnotist or hypnotherapist. And bear in mind that they cannot make you do anything against your wishes.
You can also get into a relaxed and responsive state with self-hypnosis audios. Through these audios, you can embed suggestions to make the necessary changes.
You can use all four strategies at the same time to begin rewiring your subconscious mind. If all this is too much for you, start with the one you enjoy the best.
Or, you can work with your conscious mind by focusing on your thoughts.
Shifting your thoughts is the simplest way to tap into the unlimited power of the mind.
Your thoughts can influence your feelings and behavior.
“The aphorism, ‘as a man thinketh in his heart, so is he,’ not only embraces the whole of a man’s being, but is so comprehensive as to reach out to every condition and circumstance of his life. A man is literally what he thinks, his character being the complete sum of all his thoughts.”
Your thoughts should be the easiest thing for you to control.
“A man is literally what he thinks.”
If you think you are a confident person, you’ll feel like one. And then you will start to act confident. Hence, reinforce your conviction that you’re a confident person.
Whatever you feed your conscious mind will take control of your subconscious mind. Feed your mind only what you desire. Keep anything negative at a distance.
Reprogram your mind to focus only on what you want. Thoughts are subtle and invisible, but they have a significant impact on your life.
Your thoughts become your reality.
Your energy flows in the same direction as your thoughts. So, direct your thoughts to create the reality that you want.
Negative thoughts may slip in while you’re first learning to fine tune your thinking. Rather than fighting or resisting negative thoughts, acknowledge that they do exist.
Allow those negative thoughts to dissipate without paying attention to them. Challenges and stumbling blocks are part of your growth in life. Do not dwell on it too much.
When you’re capable of controlling your thoughts, you’re now ready to master your mind.
Another pathway into your subconscious mind is by practicing mindfulness. This is the act of being focused while also being conscious of your current feelings.
For Zen and martial artists alike, mindfulness, also known as “no-mindness,” is a popular practice. To the samurai of ancient Japan, having a state of “no mind,” or mushin no shin (無心の心), was essential to survival.
“The mind must always be in the state of ‘flowing,’ for when it stops anywhere, that means the flow is interrupted and it is this interruption that is injurious to the well-being of the mind. In the case of the swordsman, it means death.”
This passage is proof that the seventeenth-century warrior class did not live and die by the sword alone. Their ability to harness the power of the mind is critical to their survival:
“When the swordsman stands against his opponent, he is not to think of the opponent, nor of himself, nor of his enemy’s sword movements.
He just stands there with his sword, which, forgetful of all technique, is ready only to follow the dictates of the subconscious.
The man has effaced himself as the wielder of the sword. When he strikes, it is not the man but the sword in the hand of the man’s subconscious that strikes.”
Even though the concept of mindfulness appears to be simple, it is not. It demands that you breathe, concentrate, and be distracted by thoughts about the past or future.
As a beginner, your mind is bound to wander. The practice of mindfulness means being present and being aware of where you are.
Do not be distracted by thoughts about the past or future. Use your breath to redirect you back to the present moment.
The aim of being mindful is to train your mind to focus on being in the “here and now.” Once you can do this, you can reprogram your subconscious mind.
Certified mindfulness meditation teacher Jared Featherstone affirms that:
“Mindfulness creates some space between you and those defeating thoughts so that you are no longer ruled by them. With this freedom, you can change habits and start a new way of being.”
Mindfulness helps you master your own mind. With practice, you will not be stuck in negative thinking patterns.
“Our thoughts impact our physical sensations, which is why mindfulness is key to empowerment in the real world. What we envision in our minds will manifest itself in reality,” says Ted DesMaisons, mindfulness teacher at Stanford University.
We have explored the strategies that you can use to tap into the unlimited power of the mind. Choose a strategy that resonates with you and begin to create a new reality for yourself.
Allow me to point out to you that you already have everything you’ll ever need to attain your life’s goals.
“Whatever your mind can conceive and believe, it can achieve.”
So, start by asking yourself:
“What future do I want for myself?”
Then direct your thoughts on making that a reality. Your focus, mental images, and thoughts make up the power of your mind.
So long as you’re aware of what you’re feeding your subconscious mind…
You can achieve anything you set your mind to.
