Are you stuck at a certain level of success? Do you battle a lack of inspiration, bad habits, financial lack, emptiness or self-defeating behaviors? I struggled with all of these things for most of my life. Although I tried very hard to change them through force of will and self-discipline, I saw no long-term results. I believed that in order to make changes I had to “try harder,” use more self-will and exercise more self-discipline.
When we see things in our outer world that we want to change, why can’t we just make a conscious decision to change and that’s enough, end of story? Weren’t we always taught that we could do anything we set our minds to? In my case it was because my subconscious mind knew that “trying harder” would cause more anxiety, stress and frustration, so it resisted.
After years of disappointment I’ve learned that nothing will ever change in our “outer-world” until it changes in our “inner world.” This is why people with a mentality of lack can win the lottery, and within as short period of time find themselves destitute again, while people with a mentality of abundance can who lose everything and make it all back in a very short time.
This subconscious resistance to change your “outer-world” is called dissonance. Dissonance occurs when the conscious and subconscious minds are not in sync. The conscious mind looks at the “outer world” and desperately wants to make a change, but the subconscious mind fights against it, in an effort to stay where it believes it is safe and protected.
Because the subconscious mind is so much more powerful than the conscious mind it always wins. When we are in mental dissonance we feel frustrated and desperate to make changes but our best efforts seem to be for not. This is not because of moral weakness! It is how our brains are designed to work.
Because emotion is the language the Universe understands, frustration and desperation are the signals we send out, and more frustration and desperation are attracted into our lives, keeping us stuck in our current situation.
How is this possible? How do we break out of this mental dissonance that keeps us trapped? There are techniques that assist us in getting both parts of our mind to work in sync. Here are some techniques that will help:
1. Meditation – The purpose of meditation is to slow down the conscious mind and relieve it of the tension it is under. When the subconscious mind is resisting the conscious mind is over-working, trying to overcome.By slowing down the conscious mind it gives the two minds an opportunity to get on the same page. Here is a meditation I use and recommend very highly.
2. Suggestion (or affirmation) – While you are in a meditative state the two minds are in sync and the subconscious mind is open to receive suggestions. During meditation, or right before or after is the time when affirmations are most successful.
3. Repetition – With repetition the subconscious begins to realize that the conscious mind isn’t trying to get it to do something that would cause pain or be dangerous.
The subconscious mind is where our spirit and our brain connect. The spirit has access to all truth and can access the answers you are seeking. The subconscious mind grants us access to spiritual intelligence, which has the answers to all our questions.
When Napoleon Hill was trying to come up with the title of his book, “Think and Grow Rich” he asked his subconscious mind for help before retiring to bed. He was awakened in the early hours of the morning with inspiration flowing. The title of his book was to given to him by his subconscious mind, through inspiration.
True Success is the result of the conscious mind working in sync with the subconscious mind. This expands our bandwidth the flow of inspiration and aligns us with our Divine Purpose – True Success!
