How affirmations affect the subconscious mind
Here, the outside world affects the inner world. … Affirmations are sentences that are repeated often during the day, and which sink into the subconscious mind, thereby releasing its enormous power to materialize the intention of the words and phrases in the outside world.
Your subconscious mind is what puts you on autopilot. While it’s true that you first have to consciously pay attention to what you are doing, or you have to consciously take in a new concept or idea, your subconscious ultimately decides what you do and how you do it and, just like habits, it plays a huge part in how your day is going to go.
As you move towards building habits and beliefs that you want in your life, it helps to have your subconscious mind on board to adopting them. If it can store the data you need, then soon the habits and beliefs that you want to master will become an automatic part of your day and a part of who you are and what you do.
This sounds easy, but it can be easier said than done. What you think about most will end up influencing your subconscious mind and your ability to develop the habits and beliefs you want. For instance, if you constantly think, “I’m not deserving of this new habit,” then you are going to consciously resist adopting the new habit into your life, which means your subconscious will resist adopting it into its life.Think about driving a car. If you are constantly on edge and scared that you are going to crash, then you are never going to develop the automatic way of driving that most of us have. You will resist adopting it into your subconscious because consciously you are focused on all the negatives and fear. If you let them go, then you will find yourself quickly becoming comfortable with your new skill and doing it automatically as you listen to music or talk to other people in the car.
A prayer is expressing a hope or wish that you have, and when you say a prayer, you feel a sense of faith that your hope or wish is coming. The beauty of prayer is that it is something you can use anywhere. It doesn’t need to be said out loud. It doesn’t need to be done kneeling with your hands together. It is a simple act of expressing what you want and asking for it.
Why does prayer help affect the subconscious mind? First, it repeats what you want to adopt into your conscious mind, which helps the subconscious mind to recognize it as important. And, second, It gives you faith that what you are praying for is coming, and that faith helps solidify what you want in your subconscious mind.
NLP communicates directly with your subconscious mind. It helps you adopt new ways of thinking and doing easily, and you can use it to create the life you want. This can’t be explained in just a simple point because there are many different NLP techniques, including anchoring, pattern interruption, swish pattern, and framing. All of them require some knowledge before you delve into them for yourself.
For example, let’s take the swish pattern. It involves 13 steps and it is used to make permanent changes in habits and the way you act. Therefore, if you automatically eat when you see your favorite show, and you want to develop the habit of only eating when you are hungry, this will be something to try.
