Why should you reprogram your subconscious mind? Well, because your subconscious mind is what truly controls how you react to the world. Until you do something to change it you will forever be stuck on “auto-pilot”. In the first 7 years of your life your subconscious mind forms all of its beliefs. Through how you see other people react, you learn how to feel about things like money, other people, careers, and life in general. So basically, the way you react to situations now is a result of your upbringing. You didn’t actually get to choose how you want to be. It was all programmed into you as a child. Fortunately, you can change this. Of course, it will take time, but you can actively begin changing your life now through the tips I’m about to share.
So, I’ve had a negative association with money and it’s something I want to change in me. I’ve had too many negative examples of people with money, but I feel like money can be a powerful tool to help elevate you and the people around you. Problem is that my subconscious mind argues with me about this because of the examples I have let into my mind. I feel like everyone wants money, but not everyone knows how to get it. I definitely know that I don’t know how. I tried to be around people that could help me understand, but I feel like it’s a journey that you have to take on your own. In order to change my thoughts about money I first had to focus on more positive examples of people with money. People who were wealthy and were a positive influence in the world. People like Tony Robbins, Oprah, Richard Branson, Marie Forleo and Russell Simmons. People like them use the money they earn and put it towards creating a better future for themselves and others and are a great inspiration to me.
How to reprogram your subconscious mind:
1. Through Listening to Affirmations
Something I really enjoy doing is listening to affirmations on YouTube. I find listening to these at night while you sleep and again in the morning really help to change how you feel throughout the day. I am big into “I am” affirmations. Stating that you are something instead of you want something, will help your mind believe it is true and that you already have what you desire. For me, I want to build in myself more feelings of positivity, confidence and wealth; so, these are the types of affirmations I search for on YouTube.
2. Through Repetition
Listening to affirmations one time will not change your entire belief system. You must consistently work on trying to improve yourself. Repetition is key. This is why I am very aware of what I am consistently focusing on. I want to make sure the things I’m allowing into my mind are helping me and not hurting me. Again, this is why I love affirmations. If you are constantly repeating the same thoughts about confidence, happiness and success; it gets programmed into your mind. The more you repeat something the more you believe it. This also works the other way too. If you are constantly thinking about how you can’t do things, that you’re stupid and unworthy, then your mind will take this as truth. What ever you think about the most will become your truth.
3. Find Real Life Examples
So, my example is that I have a negative association with money. The people I knew with money were not people who I wanted to be like, so I assumed money was the root of the problem. But, when my intuition kept guiding me towards wanting more money I started seeing more positive influences and focused on them. I focused on people with similar stories as me who had difficult pasts but overcame them and became successful. This is what you should do as well. Focus on the people who you would want to be like. This is different for everyone. If you want to be happier, for example, focus on people who you believe are the happiest, so you can reinforce the belief in yourself that it is possible. That’s what examples do, they reinforce the idea that it is possible to reach the state you want to be in.
