Techniques for Harnessing the Power of Your Subconscious Mind


In my last blog we discussed the fact that the subconscious mind is the most powerful tool you have, to get you where you want to go in life. Today we will discuss techniques for harnessing the power of your subconscious mind.

Assuming you have a goal that you believe is attainable, I would like you to record yourself on your smartphone, digital recorder, or if you’re really old school, cassette. The recording you make will depend on the type of learner you are. Think about how you learned math in school. If you learned by watching the teacher do a problem on the board, you are most likely a visual learner. If you could grasp the concept by listening, you are probably auditory. If you had to actually work through the problem yourself, odds are , you are a kinesthetic learner.

For visual learners:

Describe the movie you see yourself living. In this movie you have reached the goal you set for yourself. Provide as much detail as you can to really bring this to life for yourself.

For auditory learners:

Describe what you would say to your friends and family members after you have reached your goal. What would that initial phone call or in-person discussion sound like (at least your end of it)? Make it as real as you can.

For kinesthetic learners:

Describe what you will feel the moment you realize that you have achieved your goal. Put yourself in that moment and verbally walk though the experience you are feeling.

Remember in each case you are describing exactly what you expect to experience.

Over the course of the next month, listen to your recording just before you go to bed, and immediately upon waking. Do this for a minimum of 22 days. This will help you form a neural pathway and ensure it is ingrained in your subconscious mind. The odds of you reaching your goal will go up exponentially
