One day in the outpatient psychiatry I was talking to a person who wanted help. The theme was a brain that for many years had been used to thinking in repeatedly, overanalytic thinking patterns. We talked about whether it's possible to change anything when 95% of the mind is unconscious?
I don't have any doubt that it can be done, but I am also sure that nothing can be changed just by saying or thinking new thoughts. It's obvious that the 5% conscious mind cannot override the 95% thinking of the unconscious mind.
What can we do then? Is it possible at all to get free of unconscious patterns? Yes, says Dr. Bruce H. Lipton, you can reprogram the subconscious mind.
All of us got programmed when we were very young. And the programs even started before we were born. We were programmed already in the uterus and therefore we can't know what all the programs are that we have. We weren’t even conscious at that point.
How can we find out what the programs are?
We know that 95 percent of our lives comes from the subconscious program. So by definition your life is a printout of your subconscious programs.
The things that you like and that come easily to you in your life are there because you have a program that allows them to be there. In contrast anything that you have to work hard at, put a lot of effort into or anything you have to struggle for to make it happen, is a result of your programs not supporting that.
Why do you have to struggle through life?
If you're trying to find a relationship, or you can never get into a relationship or you're thinking it's not in your fate to be in a relationship, then this is not true. It is because whatever programs (attitudes, conclusions, judgments, unconscious patterns) your mother and father and family (anyone close who have influenced your life) had about relationships are not supportive.
The second reason is that you play these programs 95 percent of the time - on autopilot. That means at least 95 percent of the time you were sabotaging yourself without seeing it. And therefore it was difficult to understand why your relationships were not working.
What can you do about it?
If you want to know what your programs are, look at your life. See what comes easily to you, bam, there are the programs that support you. Anything that you struggle to get to, that is because you have programs that don’t support that. That's how you know what programs you want to change.
Ask yourself, 'where are the troubles in my life'? If they for example exist in a relationship, you know you have to change your beliefs about relationship. And then you can work on yourself. So first it is about recognizing that the patterns come from programming, then you can change them.
Now, there is always that belief that you can talk to your subconscious mind. And people try that and then they find themselves playing their programs again. And they get mad at themselves. And they get frustrated, because they think 'I keep talking to myself and it is not changing'.
You have to remember you are like an entity in the conscious mind. But the subconscious mind is just like a machine, it records, pushes a button, plays back. So if you are trying to talk to the subconscious as if there was somebody in there, it's frustrating because there is nobody in there to listen. That’s not how the subconscious changes and that's why most people have a lot of problems and get mad at themselves when it doesn't change.
The two minds learn differently.
The conscious mind is called creative and can learn by reading a self-help book or going to a lecture, watching a video, or reading an article. It is creative, it goes, "ah, I have an idea, now I change my mind."
The subconscious mind is a habit mind. And the most important thing about a habit mind is that you don’t want it to change very quickly, because otherwise habits fall apart. So it is resistant to change. That is the first thing we have to realize. It is not as easy to change like the creative mind.
How do I change my subconscious mind?
- Practicing, repeating, practicing. After you are seven you form habits by repeating something over and over and over again. And this will lead you to new habits.
An example: If you read a self-help book, the conscious mind understood it. But the subconscious mind learned nothing from it, because you only read it once. If you repeat the message of the book over and over and over again and behave that way, then the subconscious mind will learn a new behaviour. So it's about habituation, where you make a practice out of something, every day repeat it over and over again to change your subconscious mind. Habituation.
- Another way of changing the program is hypnosis. The first seven years the mind is operating in a low vibrational frequency like hypnosis. You need to find a person who offer hypnosis regarding the issue you want changed. Hypnosis can be offered in different forms.
- A third way is called energy psychology. It activates the brain to be in a state of superlearning. If you engage superlearning, you can rewrite subconscious programs in about 10 minutes. Something you have had your whole life can be rewritten in 10 minutes!Dr. Bruce Lipton has made a list of about 20 different energy psychology processes. "They are effective and can help rewrite subconscious beliefs in a short period of time."
Notice that Reconnective Healing is one of them.
Always remember to play ❤️
