21 Feb 4 STEPS TO ACCESS YOUR SUBCONSCIOUS MIND
All of the great thinkers, from ancient times to modern times, know exactly how powerful it can be to access the subconscious mind to unlock the greatness within.
Dr Bruce Lipton of Stanford University says that the subconscious mind “ultimately casts the deciding vote” on how much abundance, happiness and success you will experience. He also claims that the subconscious is “one million times more powerful” than your conscious mind.
Do you know why it’s so powerful? It’s because every intuition, every opinion, every instinct, every belief, your likes and your habits have all risen from something deeper inside- the subconscious! Every thought that went through your mind since you were a child is saved in an eternal flash drive where Ctrl + Z (undo) will not work!
So how can you re-train the subconscious mind towards positive change? Just use these 4 steps to access the subconscious mind!
Step 1: Relax
Relaxation seems near to impossible for many of us, but it’s crucial to opening and digging deeper within. In order to relax, find a place where you won’t be disturbed. You may choose to sit or lie down, however, keep in mind to use a cushion or folded blanket underneath your back, while sitting. Roll your shoulder blades down to support your heart while lying down. Place the hands at your sides palms up, and let the legs and ankles spread out. You may relax the eyes by either closing them or leaving it slightly open. Always chose whatever relaxes you the most.
Step 2: Listen
Listen to your breathing. Let the sound of your breath guide you to breathe in sync with the natural rhythms of the body. Taking slower and longer breaths will calm the mind. The more you listen and focus, the closer you will arrive at letting old thoughts go and staying neutral to stress.
Step 3: Use Guidance
Look, who has the time to look up new meditation videos every day? It’s arduous and less consistent! So just like you open Facebook, Snapchat or Instagram without even thinking twice, let meditating every day become involuntary with an easy one stop app packed with guided meditation sessions, tips and hacks and personalized support at your finger tips! It’s awesome! It’s effective!
Step 4: Stay Consistent
The more frequent you practice, the better. Accessing your subconscious can help change your harmful thought patterns! Find some time during the day which resonates most with you, and go from living on autopilot to landing onto some valuable truth!
