How to Use Your Subconscious Mind
You might have already know that our subconscious mind is very powerful. Do you know how to use your subconscious mind? There are many books and articles which have been written on this subject. I want to tell you most of them don’t really know what they are talking about.
They said that you can program your subconscious mind just by telling it (or repeating to yourselves) what you want in life. Then your subconscious mind will slowly get the message and it will affect your conscious mind. After that, you will start taking actions and achieve what you want in your life.
They called it “Positive Affirmation”. You repeat to yourself things like these:-
- I am wise and intelligent
- I am beautiful
- I am rich and wealthy
- I love my job, etc.
You can visit http://blog.personalgrowthclub.com/positive-affirmations-for-success and see for yourselves.
There is another website which tells you how powerful your subconscious is.
I can tell you that it is not true and it will never work. How could you bring about success just by telling yourself these things? Impossible! Just programming your subconscious will only bring you an unrealistic idea of yourself. No matter how many times a day you try to tell yourself and reality will not change.
So you are saying that they are totally wrong?
Well. Not entirely. I would say they only give you half of the story.
In order to bring to your life what you desired. The first thing you do is to take actions. Without action, nothing will happen. So, if you want to make more money, you will have to make plans. Take actions, like learn a new skill or search for something you can do to make money. Also, if you want to be smarter or wiser, you have to study harder.
Sitting on your bum and doing nothing will never bring you anything. If you want to look better, get a plastic surgery.
Review and think
After you have taken the action to carry out your plan. You have to review it from time to time. When you are doing the review, you gather all the facts which will lead you to your success. When your conscious mind has all the facts and figures, your subconscious will be able to help you. The reason behind it is we cannot get something from nothing – even our powerful subconsciousness. Our subconscious mind can analyse all the facts once you present the data to it.
I give you an example. One time my wife had a dream on the lotto numbers while she was sleeping. When she woke up, she forgot one of the numbers. She bought a ticket with five of the numbers she remembered and just filled in the sixth number without thinking. All of the five numbers were correct and she won $600 dollars.
The reason why she had that dream was she was following lotto numbers religiously for quite a few weeks. With all the facts presented, her subconscious was able to work out a possible outcome. After that, she stopped following lotto numbers and she didn’t have any more dreams like that.
The conclusion is we have to work our conscious mind first before the subconscious can kick in. Another example is how Archimedes found out how to weigh gold. He was thinking about the problem for quite some time. Then while he was sitting in his bathtub, his subconscious mind kicked in and he got his answer. He wouldn’t have found his answer without his conscious mind analysing the problem first.

From here on, you can use positive affirmation or use what they called subconscious programming. The two websites I listed above will give you the methods. You repeat to yourselves what you want out of life. Your subconscious will be able to help you after you have taken your action.
You have to keep learning in your area of interest. The reason behind it is if the data you gathered with your conscious mind is not good enough, then your subconscious will not be able to come up with good answers. That is what we call – garbage in, garbage out. If you keep on learning, you will provide more information for your subconscious to analyse. Hence, it will be able to give you better answers.
I think you have heard this phrase – action speaks louder than words.
If you want anything out of life, you have to go for it. You only live once. I have another article which you may be interested in – Follow Your Dream.
