I listen to a lot of spiritual, and motivational YouTube videos of speakers from all over the world. This is what I call my therapy sessions. You see, I firmly believe that I can train my subconscious mind to make everything I desire and deserve come true.
It’s not as simple as practicing positive affirmations or thinking happy thoughts, as I may have shared tips for in the past.
It’s more of a lifestyle change.
A mindset change.
A full commitment to having the courage to let go.
I believe you must have the courage to let go of the control we need to avoid unpredictable life moments in order to truly have all that we desire.
For some this letting go means turning to religion, believing in a power that’s greater than you. I heard my Gram say one day, a bit earlier in my parenting stage, say something along the lines of, “What children need today is Jesus.” That sentence always stuck with me, but I didn’t quite understand until current times.
You see, whatever it is, there has to be something that a person looks to and has faith in that is bigger than themselves. This type of faith looks differently for each person, but it’s something each individual requires to be confident and courageous enough to let go of trying to control the uncontrollable.
This Faith provides strength when unpredictable life situations occur.
This Faith provides confidence when yours is slowing down.
This Faith provides something to focus on and give hope during the darkest of moments.
This Faith makes it easier to consciously reprogram your subconscious mind.
It’s not as simple as waking up one day to make this devotion a reality. You must work hard every day to train your subconscious mind to realize that this is your new normal.
You see, our subconscious mind has been programmed since the day we were born. From that day we left our mother’s womb and entered the surface of this world we’ve been taught various life lessons, opinions, and feelings about certain things.
This happened without you realizing it. I’ve heard that most people don’t start to realize how programmed they were to think, behave, or feel a certain way until they’re well into adulthood.
This programming of your subconscious can be positive and negative. Some limiting beliefs may have been implanted in your subconscious while some uplifting beliefs have been programmed in your subconscious.
Each of us is different in regards to what and how our subconscious was programmed from birth into adulthood. That’s because we all have different experiences and family dynamics.
No two people have had the same exact path to adulthood, although many can relate to similar experiences.
With all this being said, I’m trying to explain that what I feel we need now, as an individual is the courage to let go.
What do we need to let go of?
We need to let go of trying to control every outcome of every possible scenario in our lives. We need to stop trying to control our adult child’s lives unless they ask us for some wisdom and guidance. We need to learn to let go of our partners and allow them to be who they are.
We need to simply put, let go of trying to control things and people that we have no real control over.
This can only happen when you start looking inward and listening to public speakers who discuss training your subconscious mind. This can only happen when you start finding something to have faith in that’s larger than yourself. This can only happen if you want it to happen.
Where there’s a will, there’s a way!
I sound like a hard ass when I say this, but I firmly believe we’re all guilty of making excuses to not do something. We find ways to avoid dealing with painful changes, such as learning how to retrain our subconscious mind. These are not easy tasks I’m sharing today. I know all too much how hard it can be to let go and seek guidance from others who have walked before us.
I’m not telling you this process will be easy, but I am telling you that it will be worth it!
Part of the process of learning to let go is to start listening to public speakers who discuss the concepts of; mindfulness, subconscious training, the law of attraction, and for me, I’ve been enjoying some Christian speakers on YouTube, too. Perhaps a nice mix of all four will help you find what path helps you move forward.
Start with Forgiving Yourself
Most people give themselves a harder time than any other person on Earth. It truly doesn’t matter what other people say about you, because chances are you say far worse things in your mind.
Self-doubt and the inability to forgive yourself for mistakes made can kill your joy and your life.
These negative thought patterns, such as giving yourself a hard time about some mistake that occurred in your past is only training your subconscious mind to punish you. You’ll need to learn how to forgive yourself and others who have caused any harm or bad vibes in your life.
This is an absolutely necessary step to start this process. You must give yourself some grace! Reaffirm that you made a mistake, or that someone harmed you but you’re safe now, you’re doing better now, and you’re worth more than living with regret and negative self-talk every day.
Make a Commitment to Yourself
Sit down and think about the person you desire to be. Take your time and think about how you want to feel, think, and live. You’re an adult now, so you’re in charge! This is very important because you’re going to use this list to help train your subconscious to be confident that you are and you feel these things.
Now that you have your list, select just three of the things. Perhaps one item from each category. Write on a piece of paper, “I am xyz as of date”. Do this for each of the three top items you selected. This will be your commitment to yourself.
For example, let’s say I have “I want to be a homesteader” on my list. I would write, “I am a homesteader with five chickens and 10 acres of land as of March 29, 2021.”
Keep this piece of paper at your desk during work hours. Feel free to write it on a sticky note to hang on the bathroom mirror to see first thing in the morning. Keep it near you so you’re constantly reading it and feeding your subconscious mind to believe these statements to be true.
What you feed your mind becomes your reality!
Remove Distractions That Increase Doubt
I’ll be honest, this is going to be one of the hardest parts for most of you out there. At least, it was for me. As you’re working towards becoming more confident, letting go of control, and training your subconscious mind you’ll need to remove distractions.
Distractions are anything that could possibly confuse your subconscious mind. Advertisements on certain websites, people in your social media feeds, people in your real-life, and things you watch on television can all distract you from your commitment.
It’s imperative you only fuel your subconscious mind with the right messaging so that you teach it to look at life through a different lens.
Remember, your conscious brain is controlled by you but the subconscious brain is what puts you on autopilot so you don’t overload. You know, like a computer that has too much information going into it and it can’t process it fast enough so it blue screens and dies forever.
You don’t want your mind to have a meltdown or constantly be fighting against the process you’re going through. During this time you need supportive messaging, people that have a similar mindset, and media options that align with your true beliefs and desires.
Take Your Time
Now that I’ve shared everything to get you started on the right path to reprogramming your subconscious mind, it’s time to process everything I shared and use it to live your best life.
The thing I’ve learned during all of my years of practicing the Law of Attraction, being open-minded enough to learn new ways of thinking and living has helped me realize that I have no control over what my subconscious mind does.
I do, however, have control over how it’s programmed so that when it goes into autopilot mode, I’m truly being the person I desire to be. And you can, too!
