How does the head get programmed in the first place?
The events in our early years have the greatest influence over us in many instances. If we received powerful ideas which came in a time when we did not have the capacity to critically analyse what we were being told, we would have accepted the ideas without question.
Our grandparents have brought their heritage into our lives in some way.
Powerful beliefs based on real life experience will have made their way into our subconscious mind. This becomes a filter for the subconscious mind. However, we often still carry old, outdated ideas about money, life, work and relationships with us from our youth.
If our parents struggled financially, for instance, there’s a powerful change that we developed some negative ideas around money. This can become a belief and hold us back in life when we want to move forwards. If we have picked up some unwanted emotional baggage around finances, you can bet that they will be holding you back from making more money.
But how do we change these ideas, if they’re rooted in our subconscious mind, from view? 1 answer is to begin observing how you speak and think about the topic you are attempting to change in your lifetime. What do you say about money, work and yourself? Your thoughts around money will stem out of your beliefs about money. In case you have a negative impression from your childhood around money, you are probably creating a blockage. To change this, you can track it out and stop giving it more energy.
Use an affirmation to use in place of your negative impression. By way of example, if your rhetoric about money is something like”You must work hard for money”, you can replace it for”money comes easily and often”. By repeating mantras which are contrary to your old beliefs, you can loosen the impact of your old beliefs and replace them with the new ones.
Think about how often you have repeated to yourself or someone that your previous view on money or about what you need to do to earn it. Through the years, this becomes a belief that you cling to as if your life depended upon it. However, what if it was a lie? Creating a new belief will take a while. You need to counteract your old belief by repeating your new affirmation again and again.
You can also use meditation to understand how to quieten your mind. This can have a two fold benefit. Firstly it is possible to notice your inner dialogue much better. By watching your mind, you can see precisely how you continually talk to yourself. This inner dialogue feeds into your subconscious mind and generates the cornerstones of your belief system over time. Listen to what you say carefully if you want to change things in your life.
Your self image too, is responsible for many of your thoughts about what life offers you. Self image is a powerful focus for your unconscious mind. It controls how you think about yourself. If you consciously want something, but you don’t believe it is possible, your unconscious belief will prevail.
Or, in the event that you consciously want something but don’t believe you are worth it, you’ll discover ways to sabotage your conscious efforts to prove yourself right. Then, you’ll justify not achieving your desired outcome in some way which agrees with your self image and prevailing mental attitudes.
This is the reason why reprogramming the subconscious mind can be so strong. Your subconscious mind has a large part to play in your life’s decisions and results. By reprogramming your subconscious mind, you can change things from within far more quickly and easily, than by struggling against a negative belief system and only acting on the’outside’ in the physical and conscious universe.
