When you read self-help and hypnosis books the probability of you encountering this mysterious word called “subconscious mind” are pretty high. You hope that the book you are reading will provide you with a satisfactory explanation about what the subconscious mind is. But maybe the book does not touch on the topic on subconscious mind. Do not go sleepless over this question because I will guide you to what you really need to know about subconscious mind.

What in the world is subconscious mind?
Another name for subconscious mind is sleeping mind or the unconscious mind. Both names arise due to the fact that you have no awareness that your subconscious mind exists. Your subconscious mind is a very hardworking mind as it stores almost every single experience in your life. The information that it stores can either be helpful or destructive as the data in your subconscious mind ultimately forms the foundation of your belief system. The beliefs that you have will determine how you lead your life. Now that you have a brief understanding of what subconscious mind is and the power of it let’s make full use of your subconscious mind.

Creative Visualization
Before you head off to dreamland every night, spend 5 minutes everyday visualizing your goals and ambitions. Imagine yourself already achieving it and feel the emotions that you will experience when you achieve it. This simple and easy exercise is super effective in eliminating any negative emotions may hinder your path to obtaining your goals. The time before you head off to sleep is the perfect time to do this exercise as this is the time where your mind is most willing to accept new information. The next step to unlocking the potential of your subconscious mind is doing positive self-affirmations.

Positive Self-affirmations
Every single morning, repeat your life aims to yourself with an enthusiastic tone. You need to say it passionately as only this best way for your brain to register what you are saying. The longer you practice doing positive affirmations, the more you will believe in your goals as you already have reprogrammed your subconscious mind that you can achieve it.

Subliminal Programming
Spend about 10 to 20 minutes everyday listening and watching subliminal videos or audio tapes. Subliminal CDs are readily available in your local CD stores. These CDs can improve your life but you need to listen to them on a regular basis. The downside is that the effect is temporary so you need to listen to them daily.  You can listen to them while working out or on the morning commute.

Creating a Positive Environment
Choose a place where you regularly work. This could be your study room or your workplace. Put up positive motivational posters. The more posters you put up, the faster your subconscious mind will internalize those positive beliefs. Your mind is an unbelievable thing; it will go on a autopilot to pick up those positive phrases in your posters. Soon, you will feel yourself easily energized in your workplace and get things done very quickly. Do the above faithfully and rest assured that you will see results very soon.
