How To Tap Into The Power Of Your Subconscious
Can tapping into the power of your subconscious help bring success and happiness in your life?
only a fraction of our conscious mind is used in decision making, reactions to situations and emotional responses. The remaining 95% is done subconsciously. Past experiences and beliefs passed on by others are filed away in the subconscious mind ready for instant access.
Your brain is active 24 hours a day, even during sleep. In fact the brain is even more active during sleep. Information taken in during the day is processed during the night. It’s almost like a computer sorting files into folders. This is why it’s so important to get sufficient rest.
Using the power of the subconscious to hone skills
This may sound far fetched but you can improve skills requiring motor function such as driving, painting, playing tennis, dancing etc while you’re asleep.
As you learn or practice during the day these newly acquired skills are transferred from short term memory into long term memory. After a while you may not need to think consciously about many of these skills. For example, the mechanical aspects of driving are done largely on autopilot. You put the car into gear without having to think about it.
This is because your subconscious takes over while your conscious mind is fully alert for what’s going on around you.

This means that good nights sleep before an exam or anything requiring newly learned skills is far more beneficial than staying up half the night studying.
Visualizing yourself successfully practicing a skill before you sleep will help your performance
Top athletes use this technique a lot, seeing everything in their mind right down to the smallest detail.
The subconscious mind is so powerful that it accepts what you tell it without question!
Telling it you’re a successful business person and it won’t question your words.
Of course, you have to put in a lot of work every day, but believing you can do it will make a huge difference to your outcome.
Though visualization is a very powerful technique, you must really believe it at core level. You can’t half heartedly visualize yourself achieving success if subconsciously you have no faith in yourself whatsoever.
You have to break through negative beliefs holding you back before you can expect results.
Using neuroplasticity to train your brain for success
Neuroplasticity is a fairly new idea, and up until the begriming of the last century it was thought that the brain was fixed and unable to change. Now it’s been proven using mri scanning that you can indeed change the structure of the brain. It’s possible not only to heal brain injury but also create paradigm shifts in the subconscious mind.
Every time you learn a new skill, absorb information, have new experiences, you’re building new neural pathways. This is what’s known as neuroplasty.
The mind and brain are very closely connected. If you make changes in how you think your brain will also change.
As we grow and develop in life we make changes in how we respond to situations, and view the world around us. Even though these changes are mental they have a physical affect on the brain as well.
Bob Proctor and paradigm shifts
If you’ve ever studied any of Bob Proctor’s books or seminars you’ll know he talks about paradigm shifts.
These are just habits formed in the subconscious over a period of time. Negative paradigms can often originate from childhood and growing up. How your parents or teachers see the world will massively influence you at a young age.
Changing these deeply ingrained beliefs takes time and a lot of effort. Once you’ve formed new positive habits and eliminated negative ones your brain will have rewired itself.
How to create new habits to rewire your brain
It takes around 30 days to change a habit, and once this is formed, the structure of your brain changes as well. You’ll find that these new habits can be hard to break, so making sure they’re positive ones will have a massive influence on your ability to achieve success.
You can literally program your mind by making these small changes or habits over time. This will have a cumulative effect, slowly changing your mindset to a positive one.
Affirmations are a good way to rewire the brain and speed up neuroplasticity. You’re simply convincing your subconscious that you’re already successful, and living the life of your dreams.
The exciting thing about this discovery is that it in no way relates to age. You can still learn new skills and set new goals right into your 80s and 90s, and even beyond!
Write your affirmations down on a piece of paper and say them either out loud or in your mind at least twice a day. The more you say them the more your subconscious will accept them as real.
Your energy will change becoming lighter and far more positive. The results can be amazing as you start to attract positive situations and people into your life.
Meditation and neuroplasticity
It has been scientifically proven that meditation can shape the plasticity of the brain. When you meditate your thoughts slow down enabling you to focus your mind. We actually have a default mode which is continual random thoughts. This is far worse if you’re anxious or worried creating negative energy.
Mindfulness and meditation let you step back allowing you to see things more objectively instead of just subconsciously reacting. Getting into the habit of meditating for just 20 minutes a day can help you take control of your subconscious mind, programming it with positive thoughts.
Just like a workout for the body you must commit yourself to meditation as it’s a workout for the mind and must be done regularly. I found Zen12 a great solution to help me meditate. I found it hard to focus on meditation in the past, and just never seemed to find the time. This program helped address both issues and I highly recommend it.
Mindfulness can be as simple as doing a repetitive task you enjoy doing, such as coloring, or writing.
Can Bob Proctor books help you tap into your subconscious?
As a great fan of Bob Proctor and his teachings, I’ve read “You were born rich”, and studied his many seminars online. There are plenty of Bob Proctor books you can find on Amazon with some available on Kindle. Personally, I always use Kindle as I prefer reading books on my tablet.
I hope you enjoyed reading this article and that it’s helped show you how to tap into the power of your subconscious mind.
