The power of your subconscious mind by Joseph Murphy
The power of your subconscious mind by Joseph Murphy:
So basically your conscious mind is your thinking mind. It’s the mind that you use to rationalize, to think about ideas to say you’re going to do something, but it’s really the subconscious mind that’s in control. It’s the reactive mind or the emotional mind. it’s a part of you that motivates you to do the things that you have to do.
For example, let’s say you decide to go to the gym every day Monday to Friday. Well, that’s a conscious decision that you made in your conscious mind. Now you might be able to willpower your way into the gym for the first few days and then all of a sudden you’re met with internal resistance. You don’t want to wake up early. You don’t feel like doing it. It’s stressing you out. All these different kinds of things happen. Well, all that stuff that’s happening is a result of your subconscious mind.
You see your subconscious mind in the scenario like that is saying this is not the normal thing, we don’t normally do things like this. so we’re just not going to do it anymore. And as a result, you’ll probably stop and if you stick with it, if you stick with it long enough, if you essentially push yourself to go to the gym every day, eventually the subconscious mind’s programming gets rewritten and it no longer resists going to the gym and I speak from my own personal experience.
When I was in my high-school it was very hard for me to go to the gym. Now, for the last three and a half years I’ve been consistent. Never missed a gym day and never missed a running day. On that, it was my choice in which I had a substitute during the week etc. So why did it get easier??
Well, it got easier because the repetition of doing the thing over and over again programmed the subconscious mind to make it a reality and once it became the norm, there was no longer any resistance. Now that’s very powerful because if you think about it, the same applies to behaviours that we do. Social behaviours, business behaviours, productive behaviours, any type of behaviours; both positive and negative are driven habitually by the subconscious mind.
We might be able to consciously decide to do something but it’s really the subconscious mind that’s going to create lasting results and this actually goes beyond that in this book.
What is conscious mind?
We’re going to talk about this, but let’s first look at the conscious mind and get a little clear with it so you have the power to choose. You can choose health and happiness, you could choose to be friendly or you could choose to be unfriendly, choose to be cooperative joyous friendly lovable and the whole world would respond. This is the best way to develop a wonderful personality. Your thoughts and the images you hold in your mind and how you feel about stuff or how you feel about those thoughts and images are going to imprint itself on the subconscious mind through repetition and the subconscious mind is going to create that reality for you by changing your actions and your behaviours to reflect.
In this book, Dr.Joseph Murphy also talks about how the subconscious mind is actually connected to infinite intelligence the infinite intelligence or the infinite mind of God as discussed very thoroughly in Napoleon Hill’s Think and Grow Rich, which is the mind, the universal mind, where all ideas and unknown knowledge of humanity exists, which we draw upon to create in realities.
In other words, the subconscious mind is very powerful, the subconscious mind is the mind responsible for healing the body. It’s the part of our mind that is regularly breathing in a heartbeat and grows hair and all these kind of functions that we have no idea how to do consciously but the subconscious mind exists to do that.
So what we want to do is, we want to tap into the power of the subconscious mind to do these very simple things like for example building a business or going to the gym and exercising and getting in shape, is really just a matter of doing a handful of disciplined actions every day. But because we are not motivated to do it, or it’s not part of our normal state, it can be very difficult and there’s a lot of resistance and pressure so as a result, we might start and we stop.
And we might start again and stop, and never really make a tremendous amount of progress. Well, if we realize that we have access to the subconscious mind. The subconscious mind is very good at creating habitual behaviours and figuring out very intelligent solutions. Then, we can actually learn how to communicate with the subconscious mind through a process and tap into that to make those things we want to do very easy and natural.
Now it doesn’t mean that the actual tasks are easy. It doesn’t mean that you know working out is. Rather, what it means is that we’ll actually enjoy the process of working out. We might even find the joy in the pain. We will actually enjoy the process of building a business. We’ll find joy in the pain and that reality is governed by our subconscious mind or you could also say that paradigm which we’re not going to cover in too deep details.
It is really a component of the subconscious mind so you’re like a captain navigating a ship. You must give the right orders and likewise, you must give the right thoughts and images to your subconscious mind which controls and governs all your experiences.
Okay, so if you think positively and you impress positivity into your subconscious mind, your subconscious mind is going to get your body and your actions and your reality to produce positive.
It’s going to flow out from you. Same thing with negativity. Let’s talk about the subconscious mind now. The subconscious mind is different than the conscious mind in the sense that the subconscious mind doesn’t judge and make decisions. The conscious mind does that. The subconscious mind just responds to what is imprinted on it by the conscious mind.
Now when we were kids, we didn’t have much of a development of the conscious mind. So, whatever kind of information that was being fed to us by our parents and teachers and students, imprinted itself into our subconscious mind. Eventually, some of it was positive and some of it was negative. In later stages of our lives, we start to find out some of those negative qualities. Maybe it’s low self-esteem, maybe it is the inability to stay focused. So, maybe it’s the desire to want to eat junk food or someone that all that stuff was programmed when we were young in our subconscious mind. And our subconscious mind is causing us to do and behave in a certain way now when we get to a certain point in our life. So, when we get access to a book like this we can figure out how to reprogram the subconscious mind.
Now is it harder? Or is it easy? Well, that depends. You see we have a lot of contradictory information flowing into our brain every day. You might decide today that you want to build your business. Well, the majority of the world thinks that building the business is hard, and it’s very stressful, and it requires long hours of a lot of pressure and a lot of hardship in your life and family. Well, if the majority of the world is communicating to you from that perspective, then in your subconscious mind, that is how you’re going to conduct your day-to-day activities in business.
Now, if you need a few entrepreneurs or a few business owners that are contrary, into that in the sense that they flow through business day to day as a way of life and they enjoy the process that they’re able to create success, and they do things and the very optimal, and the things they do, and they create business outcomes or results by flowing rather than resisting and stress, and you’re surrounded by only those people. Well, that will become what is impressed in your subconscious mind and that is how you’re going to carry your business activities. Now, if you have a combo of both say 50% you’re surrounded by these business owners that tend to flow in their business activities, and the other 50% you’re surrounded by stressful business people, while your subconscious mind is now getting contradictory information because the information from both parties is being placed into your mind and it’s essentially fighting in your subconscious mind; creating confusion. And what you’ve got is confusion. Maybe sometimes you behave in an optimal way and sometimes you don’t.
The same thing applies to health and fitness. We are constantly bombarded with information about eating food that is bad for us. Junk food advertising that promotes it. Now when you decide that you want to eat healthily and you go to the gym, you might read some positive blogs, watch some good videos on YouTube encouraging what is good to eat and how to exercise, and then for the rest of the day you’re bombarded with advertising that is making you want to eat the junk food. So now you’ve got the internal resistance. So when you wake up the next day and you try to eat healthily and you try to go to the gym, there’s a lot of internal resistance and you try to push through it and, you push through it.
Now some people actually stay pushing through it for many years and they stress themselves out. Well, a small group of people who are really wise and understand the powers of subconscious mind, realize that they need to remove the information that is contrary to what they want; they need to prevent themselves from being in a situation where these places of temptation exist. Like certain types of advertisements or certain places where they’re more likely to be motivated to eat junk food. They recognize that they don’t have a resentment towards those things, but just by not having the subconscious mind programmed by contrary information, they can continue to fill up their mind with positive information that will help them get the results in one, and thus they are flowing in nature towards achieving the results.
