7 Ways to Reprogram Your Subconscious Mind
We often talk about reprogramming our minds as though it’s a computer hard drive that can be wiped clean instantly and installed with new state-of-the-art software. If only that were the case, life would be wonderful.
In reality, reprogramming your subconscious mind will require effort and time. Since we are creatures of habit, it will take a while to break old patterns of thinking and replace them with newer, more positive ones.
There are several effective ways to go about this process. Let’s take a look at 7 ways that have been proven to work.
Mindfulness is about being aware of how you think and act at all times. This may seem to be a contradiction because you’re training your subconscious mind, but here you are acting consciously all the time.
This is par for the course and the only way to break your old/bad patterns. Anytime you’re about to think negatively, tell yourself “Stop!” … and change your patterns.
This is just one way to go about it. Arrest old patterns in their tracks and you’ll develop new positive ones in time to come.
2. Cutting out toxic people
This may be surprising. What does eliminating toxic people from your life have to do with your subconscious mind?
The truth of the matter is that the people around you can affect the way you think and feel. If you have big dreams and goals and you tell them to someone with a toxic mindset, they may say something that discourages you.
While you may dismiss it at the time, the words from these human wet blankets will seep into your subconscious mind and plant the seeds of disbelief in there.
It’s best to avoid them as much as you can and stay true to your beliefs and actions without external negative influences affecting you.
3. Watching what you mentally consume
The TV shows you watch, the books you read, the news you devour, the music you listen to and so on, have a direct impact on how you think.
It’s imperative that you feed your mind positive information so that your life is a positive reflection of your thoughts. Most of the news is usually negative. They’re designed to stir your emotions and rile you up.
That’s how the media outlets increase readership. You’re just a cog in their money-making empire that has multiple agendas – none of which will benefit you.
Cut out your consumption of this news and stick to books and audios on positivity and joy.
There’s immeasurable power in self-reflection. Look back on how your life has turned out and see if it was your thoughts and actions that got you there. What did you do wrong?
Could you have done better? What would you have changed? Did self-limiting beliefs hold you back?
Once you have the answers, you’ll know what you need to change to get better.
5. Small habits
A change in bad habits will transform your life. Don’t aim to make massive changes. Just try to incorporate small positive changes in your life every single day and keep them going.
This could be 5 minutes of meditation a day, or visualizing for 5 minutes before bedtime, or journaling, etc. These little habits done repeatedly will sear them into your subconscious mind and make all the difference.
6. Adopt an attitude of gratitude
It’s impossible to be negative if you’re constantly grateful for all that you have. Strive to adopt an attitude of gratitude. Be thankful for all the countless blessings that you have, and more will be showered upon you.
You’ll be less likely to have negative thoughts or emotions. You’ll revel in life and be a walking bundle of joy. You have to try it for yourself and see how it works wonders.
This is one of the most important factors for bringing out the best in your subconscious mind and manifesting miracles in your life.
7. Focus on the now instead of the how
Very often, when we desire something, we think of how we can achieve it. This can place limitations on your subconscious mind because our conscious mind does not know everything.
What you should do is focus on acting as if whatever you want is already yours. Want a dream home? Go ahead and walk around your small apartment acting like you’re already in a mansion.
It may seem silly, but your subconscious mind can’t differentiate fact from fiction, if the emotions you feel are real.
Do not worry how you’ll get the house, etc. Just believe that it’s yours and a realm of opportunities will open up to you to allow you to manifest your dreams into reality.
This is the best and most powerful way to reprogram your subconscious mind. Let go of your need to figure it all out on your own, and let your subconscious mind take over.
By adopting these 7 methods, you’ll not only reprogram your subconscious mind, but you’ll elevate your thought patterns and attract whatever you want more easily.
