Through the years, mind research has brought us a great deal of insight into how we think, act, feel, and believe. Like climbing Mount Everest or reaching the moon, understanding the complexities of the mind has been a daunting task. Pioneers such as Prentice Mulford, Sigmund Freud, Dr. Ivan Pavlov, Earl Nightingale, Dr. Thurman Fleet and Tony Robbins made major contributions to our understanding of how the mind works.
The mind is like an eye—if even a tiny hair gets in an eye, the eye is uncomfortable. Similarly, if even a small matter concerns the mind, the mind will be disturbed.”
The mind is a phenomenal tool that can create or destroy our dreams and goals. How we program our minds will determine how successful we become in life.
When referring to the mind, there is the conscious mind which is a conglomeration of our perceptions, thoughts, feelings, and fantasies. This “thinking mind” can accept or reject ideas, thereby allowing for free will and choice. It is so important to actively choose thoughts and ideas that will benefit and strengthen you, since each thought and idea is ultimately planted in the subconscious mind. The “subconscious or emotional” mind can only accept ideas. Once planted, the thoughts and ideas become the material we use in manifesting all things.
The subconscious mind functions in every cell of your body, unconditionally accepting the words, thoughts, and ideas that the conscious mind has planted. The subconscious mind can also replay words and/or scenes from earlier periods in your life. Every minute detail of our experiences, as well as each thought, is recorded in the subconscious mind. It is this mind which can harbor limiting beliefs, including those formed in childhood, if left unchecked. When we don’t clear up our issues, past trauma, and negative thinking, we end up yielding only suboptimal results in our lives. When we reprogram our subconscious minds with positive thoughts and expectations, we have the opportunity to take our life to great heights.
Do you realize that what you think and how you feel, along with the actions you take, will determine your results? If you want to change your results, then change all three of these variables for the better in order to realize the best possible outcome. For example, start with changing your thinking. If you find yourself harboring a negative thought, then readily replace it with a positive thought or affirmation.
There are different clearing techniques that help to reprogram the mind which include meditation, ho’oponopono, EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique), The LifeLine Technique, The Emotion Code and yoga.
“The cultivation of the mind is a kind of food supplied for the soul of man.”
