How do I access my subconscious mind
There are many ways to access your subconscious mind, but the most simple and direct is meditation. Meditation takes you deeper into your consciousness, allowing you to enter a state of being that is akin to dreaming. Your brain patterns become slower and more structured as the noise and chatter of everyday life starts to be peeled away.
In normal life, your brain is normally be functioning in the ‘beta’ pattern. This state is associated with alertness, but also with stress, anger and anxiety. In meditation, your brain patterns slow and calm down and move first to alpha and then to theta and, in deep meditation, delta patterns. As you enter this state of meditation you will notice a change in the quality of your thinking. Random thoughts may seemingly ‘pop into your head’ – these thoughts are actually not random at all but rather the thoughts of your subconscious mind beginning to assert itself on your consciousness. Your thoughts may begin to jump from one thing to another, seemingly totally unrelated idea. Take note – there will probably be a connection between these things that your conscious mind has not perceived. It is important to let your thoughts flow and bubble in this state. As you continue with your meditation practice you will become more adept at taking the position of ‘observer’ with your conscious mind. This is when you can really begin to reap the benefits of accessing your subconscious mind through meditation and you may even find radical, revolutionary solutions to current problems or dilemmas you are facing. Learn to trust these thoughts and see how they can be put into place in your daily life.
Listen to the sound of your breath. If your breath is fast and choppy, slow it down by taking long, slow breaths. This calms the mind. Listen to the sound of your heart beating in sync with the natural rhythms of your body. The more you listen and focus on the breath, the more you’ll arrive in the moment, at ease, letting go of thoughts.The more frequent you practice, the better. Find the time of day that resonates with you most and stick to it. Want to complement your practice even more? Restorative yoga is incredibly beneficial for relaxation.
