Did you know that we live 95% of our lives led by the beliefs of the subconscious mind, and that 70% of those beliefs are negative? By the time we reach the age of 7, we have downloaded and installed a set of programs and beliefs from our parents that become our software for the entirety of our lives, unless we change them. Our subconscious is the part of our mind that stores our emotions, memories, skills, instincts and behaviours, as well as running biological functions. If we are trying to change anything in our lives with the conscious mind, and it goes against our previous unconscious conditioning, then we might as well conserve our energy. Basically, to be blunt, those early programs will direct the course of your life, whether you like it or not. The Matrix movie was totally on the game, either we follow the program that has been previously ordained, or we opt out and become a self aware and conscious participant in our destiny. Unless we do, we exist within the matrix of other peoples programs, if they’re not working for in our favour, it is time for some new, and life enhancing downloads. With the conscious mind we can only hope to achieve limited change, as we rely on willpower, reason, positive thinking and motivation. It is a bit like making those New Year’s resolutions; the determination factor has a short shelf life unless it is aligned with the embedded beliefs held within our subconscious. They affect every area of our life, health, self esteem, relationships, prosperity and deepest spiritual understandings. If those beliefs are self defeating, de-valuing, fearful and create stress, then we are running a negative program that will reflect in our lives, it has to, because anything that is not an accurate reflection of our internal reality will cause our subconscious to disregard it and we will be cut off at the knees, it is devoid of compassion or humour, just like a computer. It will just do what it is programmed to do. It see’s the world literally, through our 5 senses, and houses all our memories, every single experience has been filed away in the archives, even the basic ones, like how to walk! The subconscious thinks in the present moment, so the most effective way to communicate with it, is to make a present tense statement that a 7 year old can understand. Re-write the software of your mind and you change the printout of your experience.
The subconscious mind processes 4 billion bits of information per second (yes, I said 4 BILLION), compared to the conscious mind that manages to process just 40 bits. The conscious mind is totally pre-occupied with the past and worry about the future; it is able to remember things for about 20 seconds. It really is a case of David and Goliath, the subconscious is going to win every time, unless we make it our friend, it will be our worst enemy. In the words of Henry Ford, “If you believe you can, or if you believe you can’t, you’re right.” The good news is that with hypnosis, we can access the unconscious and re-write the software. To make friends with our subconscious it is important to recognize that we are actually trying to communicate with a precocious 5 year old child, reasoning and convincing are sometimes needed, but we will always win in the end, because we have wisdom and knowledge on our side. Ultimately our inner mind’s function is to ensure our happiness, survival and safety, convincing it that a negative belief such as, “We have to eat everything on our plate because there are starving children in the world,” or “Success is for other people, I’m just not good enough to make it” isn’t that hard to do, if we know how. For the first 7 years we were in a state of hypnosis, receptive and open, actually in the Theta state. There are 4 levels of consciousness, Beta, Alpha, Theta and Delta. Theta is below the vibration of the conscious mind, just before twilight reverie and sleep, this is the ideal state to offer new empowering beliefs, to reprogram and offer modifications, we then enter the process of super-learning. We are re-writing the script our lives, quite an important and worthwhile endeavour really, as we are taking control, overriding obsolete programs that do not serve us in anyway whatsoever. It is time for a life upgrade; it is time for new software that is in alignment with our wants, desires and our deepest dreams, creating the next movie of our lives, The Matrix re-visited if you will. Programming our subconscious effectively, leads us to our destination, hypnosis will get you there.
