Reprogram Your Subconscious Mind
Did you know you can reprogram your mind for success and happiness and completely change your conditioning before you go to bed every single night with only a few exercises in just 10 to 15 mints? While most people know the power of a morning routine, there is something just as powerful and that is an evening routine that you can implement every night before you go to sleep. These five simple strategies I am about to give you have been proven to reprogram your subconscious mind over time so you can become the person that you wish to become. Before I get into those five strategies on how you can reprogram your mind, It is important to understand how it works. To give you a little bit of context….to really help you achieve whatever it is you want to achieve in your life. Now as you drift off to sleep, there is a part of your brain that turns off. This is known as your conscious mind, but while you go off to sleep, there is a part of your brain that is still operating. In fact, it operates non-stop. 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year. This is known as your subconscious mind.
Scientists have shown that your subconscious mind is responsible for 95 to 99% of everything that you do every single day. Almost every choice you make, every day is made not by your conscious mind, but by your subconscious programming. It’s also 100 times more powerful than the conscious mind and is a lot more difficult to change as it is a HABIT mind. But with these five secrets and repetition, you can absolutely set yourself up for success every single night by reprogramming your subconscious mind. Here are the 5 ways to get started:
NUMBER 1 : PLAN THE DAY
Before you go to bed, Plan your tomorrow. Set your intension for how you want to play out tomorrow from start to finish. What time will you get up? What are the most important tasks that you need to do? Because if you want a great morning routine, it actually starts the night before. As Tim Ferriss said, If you want to win the day, you have to win the morning, but in reality, to win the morning, you first have to win the evening. So spend a few moments looking at your day planning out the biggest things that you need to accomplish to help you reach your goals and dreams.
NUMBER 2 : REVIEW YOUR GOALS
As I mentioned, the subconscious works through repetition and if you want to reprogram your mind for success, you have to do it over and over and over again. Just think about when you learned how to drive a car or to first walk, you did it through repetition. Now, the same goes for your goals and dreams. You can’t set a goal, read it once and expect it to happens. You need to set your mind up for success by constantly reviewing your goals, whether you choose to write them down in a journal or look at a vision board and visualize the goals happening or simply reading them out loud. Remember, the subconscious learns through repetition by doing this every single night when the subconscious is highly active, you will be implanting the ideas and the goals that you need before you go to sleep, because as you sleep, your subconscious will actually help you achieve your goals and find the solutions for you.
NUMBER 3 : PRACTICE GRATITUDE
This doesn’t need to be a lengthy exercise. High performance author Jack Canfield talks about the importance of gratitude before going to bed, whether it’s simply sending an email to a friend or family member, sending a text message to someone, or to even state gratitude out loud for your health, your well-being, or to your spouse or anyone else that you live with. By practicing you’re programming your mind to think in abundance and not scarcity. You will be programming your mind to be thinking about the opportunities and being grateful for everything that you have. By practicing gratitude on a daily basis, especially before you go to sleep every single night, you are setting yourself up for success.
NUMBER 4 : ASK YOUR SUBCONSCIOUS MIND FOR THE ANSWER
As the great inventor, Thomas Edison said: “Never go to sleep without a request to your subconscious mind” Again, he recommends this because as you sleep, your subconscious is wide awake. So instead of going to bed worrying and thinking about the bills that you need to pay or how you might’ve screwed something up at work or how your life isn’t going how you wanted. Instead, think about what you need to do for your life to change. Is it to make money? Is it to start that business? Is it to go after your passion project? Whatever it is, think about it and then ask your subconscious by speaking out loud how you can figure out this problem. Think back to the last time that you went to bed with a question and woke up in the middle of the night with an answer.. or as soon as you woke up and you were in the shower, the idea came to you. This is the evidence of your subconscious mind working 24/7. So instead of drifting off and going to bed worrying about tomorrow, thinking about a job interview, thinking about the bills that are due or how hard your life is, pose your subconscious a question Ask it out loud. Find something that will really help you move your life forward and ask a question about that. It could be your health, it could be your career, it could be your business, it could be a relationship. Address your subconscious out loud before going to sleep and then drift off. Don’t try and figure out the answer. Again, your subconscious is 100 times more powerful than your conscious mind. As you drift off, it will get to work. Again, if it doesn’t work the first time, give it a few more nights. Keep doing it repetition and eventually the answer will find you.
