Taking control: Why you have to activate your unconscious mind!

 A normal person has goals that motivate consistency in undertaking short-term and long-term planned activities.  These are synchronized in three levels in the mind to converge at a point of achievement.  When these efforts do not come to fruition, you tend to wonder what you have done wrong!

You get to the point of realizing that you are not succeeding to undertake your articulate plan through your conscious mind which is responsible for logic and reasoning.  Today I am pointing to other two important partners who could be sabotaging your hard work; the sub-conscious and unconscious mind.

The subconscious mind ensures that all your organs and other processes are functioning well while the unconscious mind is far deeper and have restored all that has ever occurred in your life – good and bad.  The most intriguing and relevant in this context are the memory, affection and motivation from which good and bad habits are derived.  You may be one of many people who know very little about the conscious mind; yet it is the most important driver of your actions, hurdles, and affects the rate at which you achieve our goals.  Let me briefly highlight the process: The brain is one organ that starts developing during the first trimester. When you were born, you were rather passive because the brain had not developed myelin cells whose function is to control and coordinate movement. As you developed to be a great person you are, it is due to many activities going on which either support your conscious mind or resist without you being aware of it all; yet these directly affect your good plans towards your destination.  So, I hope you agree with me that you cannot ignore the existence and activities of your subconscious and unconscious mind.  

You can only change things you are aware of.  This fact empowers you to know that you cannot change information in your subconscious and unconscious level.  Imagine a quarter full bottle of red colored water.  You can dilute the liquid by pouring clean water and continue doing so until it overflows.  The continuous pouring of clean water will eventually replace the colored water.  This is how you can transform your undesirable habits and actions derived from your unconscious mind with conscious positive thinking through staying in the present.  You can only do good things now.  This means when you continuously refuse your mind to drift in the past, you re depriving your past of any negative thoughts and unproductive habits which are its food.  You are progressively overwhelming your conscious mind with so much positive energy that any challenges that might push you to flip into unconscious behavior will leave you with a positive balance. 

The proactive things you can change to support this transformation is to do the following:
  1. Switch off your television. If there is any program that empowers you, watch that only. This is exercising self-control; the last of the nine fruit of the Spirit.
  2. Write down your goals and read them at least twice a day – first thing in the morning and the last thing before you go to sleep.
  3. Be grateful for achieving them throughout the day and night. Say “thank you for my goal… (Name your goal in short sentence) as you turn or go to the bathroom. You will be amazed of how this makes you smile as you drift back into your sleep!
  4. Withdraw from negative talk. Life and death is in the power of your tongue! Remember your aim is to starve your negative self to death!
  5. Replace the radio listening with YOUTUBE programs that support replacement of your negative thoughts through guided meditations.   This is how you transform and feed your consciousness and activate supportive resources that will surely propel you into a new and powerful person; thus enabling you to affect your life positively.

Remember that you are not a victim; you are a co-creator of your life through saturating your thoughts, feeling and speech with life-giving information. Let you be a driver of things you want in your life.  Walk away from anything that is contrary to what you want. Rub shoulders with those who have already achieved what you want. That is taking control of your life!
