The Subconscious Mind

It is 12:45 AM and sleep eludes me.

Have you ever wondered if any of those “alternative” types of therapy really work?  I used to think they only worked on those who were a little what we in Asheville call “wooie-wooie”.  In other words, you had to be a little on the ethereal side of life for these things to have any benefit to you.

I was wrong and I guess I’m writing because I want my readers to understand how well these therapies work and how they can  work for everyone.  Many of them are based on relaxation techniques, or balance and focus, or pressure points on our bodies.   Several of them deal with the subconscious mind.  Others involve aromas and cleansings and even reading the iris of your eye.  Yes, they are endless, and in my opinion very worthwhile.

As I am a certified Clinical Hypnotherapist, as well as a practitioner of NLP and EFT, I see much benefit in dealing with what is held in the subconscious mind.

The Truth - What Is It?

Did you know that the subconscious remembers EVERYTHING that you ever experienced?  That doesn’t mean the conscious mind remembers well, but the subconscious never forgets.  Consequently, we are usually ruled by the subconscious mind.

For example, if money was an issue in your family when you were a child, it is likely that your parents often said things like “you know, money doesn’t grow on trees,” or “you should be thankful you have a roof over your head,” or “we just don’t have the money for that,” or my favorite, “money is the root of all evil.”  How could we ever invite money into our lives if our subconscious mind believes money is evil?  All of these kinds of statements reinforce the lack of money in the subconscious mind.

When we become adults, these statements continue to loop through our mind and our relationship with money is usually on the lacking side.

Another example would be a child who has difficulty on his spelling tests.  His mother might say, “you know, no body in my family knows how to spell very well.”  The conclusion is then that the child will never be able to spell, either.

Such falicies we instill in our children!  Poor spelling skills are not inherited!  A negative relationship with money can only be taught to us.  Yet we allow these impressions from our childhood to take hold of us and keep us from success as adults.

What do we do about it?  Alternative therapies!  If you really have difficulty with some of these issues, consider what was going on around you when you were a child.  What were people saying to you?  What did you learn to believe?  As a child  you were not aware of what these statements did to your subconscious.

It’s time to get these beliefs out of  your life.  Consult someone in your area who understands the subconscious mind and can help you to move beyond your childhood beliefs.

Remember, it is never to late to undo what your mother (or father) did to you.  That translates into:  quit blaming your parents for your life today.  Move on!
