Subconscious mind programming gets blamed for many a failed resolution or stubborn habit. But the real issue is not the programming. It's what you might call "toxic brain."
The subconscious collects all the sensory data you take in throughout life, most powerfully in the formative years before age six. This information guides millions of split-second decisions, like whether to trust a stranger you know nothing about.
It is an incredible GPS steering your life. But give it wrong information, like the abusive words of a parent, and it is no wonder plans run amuck. GPS good. Toxic lies bad.
Willpower is no match at all for the subconscious mind. While over 95% of our biology runs essentially on auto pilot, less than 5% is left for conscious choice. You may very well decide to lose 10 pounds by spring. But if your bigger-than-life subconscious "needs" a slice of pie, who do you think will win?
You can't handpick every activity in life and certainly not your formative years. But you can intentionally nourish your mind and limit the toxic exposures you now have.
Deliberately choose positive people and activities to shape your life, even what you watch on TV. What you feed your mind is what your mind becomes.
Make a habit of stopping that squirrel running around your brain whenever your mind is not at peace. Identify the negative and flip it around.
"I'll never get this done!" can easily become, "I've made good progress so far. What's the next step?" This active subconscious mind programming does take effort, but the new script will take over. Just keep at it!
Redirecting your thoughts is important, but sometimes you have no idea what's running your mind. You just know you're trying hard but going nowhere, or backwards.
At a time when I was particularly discouraged and had a colony of squirrels running my brain, I discovered a type of subliminal therapy proven by over 40 double-blind studies.
What makes this technology unique is that you can almost hear the subliminal messages but not enough to put your critical (conscious) mind on alert. You know, the part that would laugh at words like "I am confident" or "I am successful."
InnerTalk offers a huge selection of topics. For me, it was hard to settle on just a few. Most come with a choice of music or nature sounds, and the price is right.
I found that the training worked in just a few weeks. But the clincher happened long after I stopped listening. I actually caught some very positive self-talk just naturally floating through my mind. Me, the former Queen of Dismay!
