How to Activate Your Subconscious Mind to Achieve Any Goal

Here are some ways to start retraining your mind effectively to achieve greatness

People seldom understand the power of the subconscious mind. Our subconscious mind is more powerful than the conscious mind. What is the subconscious mind? 

It is that part of our mind that remains dormant, but captures and stores all kinds of information and feelings we are facing; it shapes our behavior, ideology, and personality without our knowledge. 

This ability to influence with or without our approval is exactly what makes it so powerful. 

Power of the subconscious mind

When you learn a new skill your conscious mind is quite alert. After acquiring the skill, it is shifted to your subconscious mind and you apply it automatically to achieve your objectives.  

For instance, when you are learning how to swim, initially you will be more alert due to your conscious mind. Once you master the art of swimming, you transfer the skill to your subconscious mind, and the conscious mind gets busy acquiring other skills. 

The subconscious mind thus acts as a reservoir of learning.

The subconscious mind can be compared to a computer or a memory bank. It takes in everything we hear, see, feel, and experience and stores it. It has been estimated that the subconscious mind receives two billion bits of information per second. 

It controls all of your bodily functions and parts; breathing, the beating of the heart, blinking of the eyes, the immune system, organs, muscles, bones, and tissues. 

The subconscious mind is where you store your emotions, habits, core beliefs, and your permanent memory. 

“Whatever we plant in our subconscious mind and nourish with repetition and emotion will one day become a reality.” – Earl Nightingale

Your subconscious mind is always ‘on’. You must know how to utilize it to achieve great success. 

Ensure that your subconscious mind captures the right signals because the things that are stored in your subconscious mind will directly affect you in the form of emotions, circumstances, and events. 

In case of any emergency, your subconscious mind instantly recognizes it and immediately brings you to an alert state. 

Sometimes you like or dislike some people based on your past experiences. That means you have either sympathy or antipathy towards them. It is due to your subconscious mind. 

A blueprint for finding solutions to your problems

When you are confronted with any problem, feed the problem to your subconscious mind before you go to bed. You will get the solution the next day morning.  Additionally, you can solve your problems creatively with the help of your conscious and subconscious minds. 

Here is a blueprint to find solutions to your problems:

Outline your problem―be clear about what is the real problem. If you are burdened by exam stress, then what is the real problem? You are not getting enough time to study? Or you cannot grasp the concepts as easily as others do? These are two different issues. 

Gather information from all sources―think of how you have treated your academics throughout the year. What is the difference between your study habits and that of your classmates? Now that there is a problem, what is the best way to deal with it and get the best outcomes?

Work on it with your conscious mind to get solutions―should you do a selective study with a well-informed idea of the expected questions? Would it help if someone reads out the subjects to you even when you are doing something else? Would discussing the subjects with friends help? When you do not get clear solutions, break the problem into pieces and give commands to your subconscious mind. Sleep over it for some time, and your subconscious mind will come out with some solutions. Choose the best one with the help of your conscious mind. This is an ideal way to find solutions to your problems in life. 

Blend your conscious and subconscious mind effectively

Your conscious mind does one task at a time while your subconscious mind does multiple tasks at a time. The conscious mind sees with the eyes while the subconscious mind is blind. 

The conscious mind is the ‘thinking’ mind and the subconscious mind is the ‘feeling’ mind. The subconscious mind works at the behest of the conscious mind. 

The conscious mind programs the subconscious mind but the latter is more powerful than the former. 

There are times when you know what you need to do, but you are not getting a good feeling about it. That is something your subconscious mind is doing. Don’t ignore it. Try to get to the route of the issue that is causing you discomfort. 

Usually, there is one. Convince yourself before moving ahead with the task so that you don’t suffer later.

Your conscious mind emphasizes excellence while your subconscious mind strives for perfection. Your conscious mind has the will while your subconscious mind has the power. When you blend your conscious and subconscious minds, you have the willpower

It is said, one must not give out impulsive reactions to things. Impulsive reactions result from the conscious mind, which reacts with whatever is visible. 

For example, when someone tells you that your performance in a program has not been good enough, your first reaction would be either sulking or protesting. But when you stop and mull over it, you give a chance to your subconscious mind to take over. 

That is when the criticism will sound like feedback and you will be able to see the loopholes which may have left the audience dissatisfied. 

Those will also help you identify the areas of improvement for you.

Your conscious mind is a leader and your subconscious mind is a follower. For successful leadership, there must be effective coordination between the leader and the follower. 

Similarly, for the successful functioning of your mind, both the conscious and subconscious mind must work collaboratively.

You can silence your inner critic and build a great deal of confidence by strengthening your subconscious mind.  Blend your conscious and subconscious minds successfully. Modify your subconscious mind the way you want to become with the help of the conscious mind. 

Make your subconscious mind a friend, not a foe. Make use of this mysterious subconscious mind to achieve greater success.

The human mind is a wonderful device

The human mind can be compared with an iceberg where you see the conscious mind on the surface while the largest and the most powerful part, the subconscious mind, remains below the surface.

You can control your mind by feeding it with positive thoughts.  If you feed positive thoughts to your subconscious mind, you get positive results. If you strengthen your subconscious mind, you can ensure sound health, peace, and prosperity. 

Follow the blueprint to attain and accomplish your goals. 

It is a common fact that people do not use their full mental power. They do not give enough chance to the subconscious mind. 

Imagine if everyone used 100 percent of their mental power, the outcome would be astounding! We would live in a world full of peace, prosperity, and happiness.
