The Law Of Attraction – The Subconscious Mind – The Eleventh Step to Success

Napoleon Hill compared the subconscious mind to a file cabinet where thoughts could be recalled or withdrawn. Similarly, other modern personal development professionals have compared the subconscious mind to a tape recorder that receives all kind of information and data from the conscious mind which in turn helps plant or record such information or data into the subconscious part of our mind.

What is the challenge about implanting new information in our subconscious mind?

Why is it that even for people who have been introduced to the knowledge of the subconscious mind still have a “hard time” to accomplish what they want in life? The reason why is that many people can’t seem to be able to erase the old tape with the new one.

Think about it, if you have a tape recorder with an old song recorded on it and you are trying very hard to tape another song over the old one but, don’t know to push the recording button, you would never be able to record that new song, would you?

You are playing that new song over and over and yet, every time you check your recorder, that old song is still playing. You are getting frustrated and wonder why even though you keep playing that new song, that old song is the still the one on the recorder. What you don’t know is that in order for the old song to be erased and replaced by the new one, you need to push that little button that says “recording”.

If you don’t push that button, you can play your new song until you’re blue in the face, you will NEVER be able to record something new.

This is exactly how our subconscious mind works and that is exactly why so many people who have watched the movie “The Secret” for example, are saying that it doesn’t work for them. You can play the movie The Secret until the cows come home but, if you are not pushing you “inner recording button” the movie The Secret will not change anything in your subconscious mind and, therefore, in your life.

How can you implant (record) new information into your subconscious mind?

How do you find the recording button of your subconscious mind? Where can you find that trigger that will allow you to record new ideas on top of the old ones that you want to get rid of?

That valuable place, that recording button of your subconscious mind is best found through your emotions using your five senses. A very easy access to this place is by reaching what is called the critical factor which is like the guardian gate between the conscious and subconscious or what some people also call the conscious and unconscious. That gate of the mind is easily reached using three different tools.

How Can You Best Reach Your Subconscious Mind

Personally I use these three simple tools to be able to reach my subconscious mind and tape new information over old ones. Those tools are affirmations, vision board and self hypnosis. Let’s see how they can help you.

1) Affirmations

Affirmations, also called self-talk are positive statements that you repeat to yourself throughout the day over and over. Such affirmations, however, really work when you put emotions into them, using any of your five senses or all of them.

For example, if I say “I am wealthy” all day long but, can’t stop thinking about how broke I am, it’s not going to work. It’s like playing my new song without pushing the recording button. As I say my affirmations I need to feel and believe it all through my five senses.

2) Vision Boards

A vision board will do the same kind of work affirmations do but, it will put a visual sign in front of your eyes. As you watch your vision board either a physical one or an electronic one, you will also need to plant those images in your subconscious mind through your feelings, emotions and beliefs. Remember, those are the “recording” buttons.

3) Self Hypnosis

To reach my subconscious mind I use self hypnosis or even called hypnosis which is not to be confused with the type of hypnosis you might have seen on TV that knocks unconscious. I am talking about the kind of hypnosis where you stay conscious the whole time between a waking state and a sleeping state and where the "critical factor" is more easily reached and opens the doors to your subconscious mind.

When using this method you do not have to concentrate much on your emotions but more on concentration of what you hear. The recording of positive affirmation and your subconscious mind will do all the rest.

Remember that achieving success will always involve putting new data in your subconscious mind and knowing how to do it will simply change your life for the best. You can attract everything you want.
