It all began with my friend’s whining that, despite numerous attempts, he was unable to wake up early enough in the morning to begin his morning prayer before the sun rose.
He explained that he is too dedicated to going for a morning stroll in a neighbouring field and that he always gets up at 7 a.m., gets ready, and goes for a walk.
He had never failed before. Even in the rainy season.
However, He is inconsistent when it comes to early rituals such as prayer before the sun rises.
Even though he is thinking, he is unable to regulate his thoughts as he did on his morning walk. However, he suddenly got the thought that he should make this daily prayer a routine.
The concept of retraining the subconscious mind emerges.
Life is too brief to waste time clinging to old beliefs. You don’t have to operate from these beliefs just because you were taught them as a child.
It’s time to evaluate your old ideas and toss out the ones that don’t serve you any longer.
You must rewire your subconscious mind to achieve this.
By the way, you might be aware of what the subconscious mind is.
When scientists discuss about the brain, it’s typical to hear about conscious and unconscious behaviours. As a result, the majority of us are aware that our actions are less rational than we believe.
Sigmund Freud (1856 – 1939), a famous Austrian psychologist, created and thoroughly investigated the idea of higher levels of information processing and introduced the three-level mind model. The mind, according to his model, can be divided into the following levels:
Model of the mind on three levels
The beauty and pleasure of the smell of a crimson tulip, for example, is defined as consciousness.
The term “subconscious” refers to all automatic reactions and activities that we can become aware of if we think about them.
Consider our ability to drive a car: after we’ve mastered it, we don’t have to worry about which gears to shift, which pedals to press, or which mirror to check, but we can always recall what we did if we think about it.
Unconscious — all past events and memories, even if they are often inaccessible to us no matter how hard we try to recall them.
Think about the first word we learned to say or how it felt to be able to walk unassisted.
All psychologists believe that there is an unconscious mind that does a lot of the heavy lifting in the cognitive process. When I think of France’s capital, Paris is the first thing that comes to mind. When I twitch my fingers, they move back and forth in a sophisticated pattern that I didn’t prepare consciously but that the unconscious gave for my use.
In psychology, there is a lot of controversy about what the unconscious does and what requires conscious thought. ‘Is the unconscious smart or dumb?’ asks the title of a well-known paper on the subject.
The unconscious, according to common belief, can plan simple stimulus-response activities, convey fundamental data, recognise things, and carry out practised movements. Complex cognition, on the other hand, necessitates conscious thought and includes planning, logical reasoning, and synthesising concepts.
The subconscious mind’s job is to store and retrieve information. Its goal is to make sure you reply exactly as you’ve been instructed to. Everything you say and do is shaped by your subconscious mind to match a pattern congruent with your self-concept, or “master programme.” This is why positive affirmations are so powerful – you can really reprogram your own thought patterns by slipping in positive affirmations and sound bites that are focused on success.
To put it another way, your conscious mind directs and your subconscious mind follows.
Your subconscious mind is an unquestioning servant that works around the clock to ensure that your actions follow a pattern that corresponds to your emotionalized thoughts, hopes, and desires. In the garden of your life, your subconscious mind develops either flowers or weeds, depending on the mental parallels you make.
A homeostatic impulse exists in your subconscious mind. It regulates your body temperature at 98.6 degrees Fahrenheit, as well as your respiration and heart rate. It maintains a balance among the hundreds of chemicals in your billions of cells through your autonomic nervous system so that your entire physical machine works in perfect harmony most of the time.
In the mental realm, your subconscious mind maintains homeostasis by keeping you thinking and responding in ways that are consistent with what you’ve done and said in the past.
Your subconscious mind stores all of your thought and behaviour patterns. It has memorised all of your safe zones and works hard to keep you there. This is why it’s critical to develop the habit of writing SMART goals on a regular basis. Staying productive and focusing on all of your goals will become second nature to you over time.
When you try to do anything new or unusual or disrupt any of your established patterns of behaviour, your subconscious mind makes you feel emotionally and physically uncomfortable.
Fear and apprehension are psychological indicators that your subconscious has been triggered. But it’s been working in the background to build those behavioural patterns long before you’re aware of them.
The secret to success is our subconscious thinking, which you may retrain. It’s time to decide, commit, and resolve if you want to live the life you want. It’s not what we can do in life that matters; it’s what we choose to do. There’s no better time than right now to reclaim control of your mind and set your sights on something better.
You may have heard of these strategies to reprogram your subconscious mind, and some of you may be using them as well. But the point is how serious you are about getting a discernible outcome in your life and how regularly you follow through. Let us renew our knowledge by reapplying these approaches to reach the wonderful life we all desire.
But I can tell you from personal experience that if you can reprogram this area of your mind, you can do things you never thought possible.
# Activate the Success Mechanism in Yourself
Every human being possesses a “creative mechanism,” which, when applied correctly, can become a success mechanism. It’s usually referred to as your reticular activating system (or RAS). It has the potential to be your hidden weapon for reprogramming your subconscious mind and manifesting miracles in your life.
Your success mechanism is impersonal and will assist you in achieving whatever objectives you set for yourself. It will act as a success mechanism if you programme it with success goals. It will function as a failure mechanism if you give it negative goals. It’s not designed to help you thrive; rather, it’s designed to help you survive.
Both consciously and subconsciously, your brain and nervous system are constantly directing you in the direction of the image you’re thinking about. This is why it’s critical to concentrate on what you want in life rather than what you don’t.
Like my acquaintance, who wishes to make getting up early in the morning to perform Morning Prayer before the sun rises a regular routine? Spend as much time as possible every day thinking about what you want in life. Once you’ve made the commitment, like my friend, you can accomplish it in a variety of ways.
- Write your goals down in a journal.
- Visualize and visualise your objectives becoming a reality.
- Use affirmations and talk about your objectives as if they’ve already happened.
Over time, these practises might deceive your brain into believing you have accomplished a goal before you actually have.
Your success mechanism, once implanted in your subconscious mind, is oblivious to the difference between genuine and imagined situations.
So put all of your energy into what you want, rather than what you don’t want. It will assist you in realising your objectives over time as you practise.
# Make use of imaginative visualisation.
You’re sending the wrong signals to your mind if you spend all of your time worrying about what you don’t want to happen in life.
You’re visualising what you don’t want to happen in a negative way. Remember that the mind is incapable of distinguishing between what is real and what is imagined.
Rather than fretting, you should begin to harness the power of vision. Visualization activates the creative powers of your subconscious mind and creates new neural pathways. Instead of worrying about the worst-case scenario, creative visualisation trains your brain to visualise your goals coming to life.
Remember that worrying is a habit. You learnt to be concerned, and you can learn to be concerned no longer. It’s entirely up to you. “Imagination is more powerful than knowledge,” Albert Einstein reportedly stated.
My friend already started doing this visualisation part for his morning prayer.
Hypnotherapy is the third approach to alter your subconscious mind for long-term success. While this may appear unusual, it is one of the most successful strategies to affect lasting change.
The mind operates at a low vibratory frequency similar to hypnosis for the first seven years of your existence. Your mind is like a sponge when you’re a youngster, and it takes practically everything you’re told to be true. All of your beliefs are downloaded and stored in the blueprint of your mind during this moment. This occurs whether you want it to or not because the mind is structured to assist you in surviving in society.
Repetition is the final approach to reprogram your subconscious thinking. Around the age of seven or eight, you begin to form habits that will last for the rest of your life. And your habits are created by doing the same thing over and over again. Consider learning to drive a car or riding a bike.
When it comes to reprogramming your subconscious mind, one of the advantages I discovered is that you can live a more beautiful existence. Your thoughts and feelings will shift, prompting you to make various decisions. You’ll find yourself appreciating the small things in your life and feeling grateful for all that has transpired up to this point.
Following the above basic steps, I am confident that not only my friends who are struggling to begin early morning prayer will succeed but that all others will experience a true shift in their lives, making life more beautiful.
