There is so much being said these days about the value of engaging your subconscious mind in permanent change and transformation. There are some very important tenets of the subconscious and unconscious mind that you need to understand in order to effectively tame it and allow it to work for you instead of against you through self sabotage.
1. Its the domain of the emotions and your hidden beliefs
that will create a pleasurable feeling or a painful one on things occurring in your life.
2. It organizes memories in a sequential manner.
The first time you experience a disturbing negative emotion is the most important because of the gestalt that was formed each time that same negative emotion was experienced.
3. It is the Akashic record keeper of the mind.
When we an event that was too painful to process then the subconscious holds it for us often affecting our daily lives without our knowledge.
4. Often unresolved memories will show up out of thin air.
This often happens with EFT. I wish I had a dime for every time I heard,”Wow, I haven’t thought of that in years” or “I’d completely forgotten about that” It’s almost like the mind says, “Finally, let’s get down to business with this crap”
5. It is responsible for managing our autonomic nervous system.
It breathes for us, directs our heart rate, or digestive system, etc. Is it any wonder then that since it almost tied up with emotions, it’s influence can affect health?
6. It preserves the integrity of the body.
Around sexual issues I see this all the time. Self sabotage happens in order to do this even though consciously we want to lose weight, heal, go after better situations in our lives.
7. It is the high priest center.
These are your highest morals and ethics usually imprinted in childhood. Would you take the advice about who you should marry from a 5 year old’s morals? Or any major decision for that matter. Hmm? Maybe yes, maybe no. That’s is indeed what you do on a subconscious level.
8. Takes very clear messages and listens 24/7 to your conscious thoughts.
Are you mostly a negative or positive person? You are constantly programming your mind with your consistent thoughts.
9. Controls and maintains all perceptions.
That hunch or gut feeling is really your subconscious.
10. Is responsible for our good and bad habits.
That’s why its so important to use it when changing behaviour.
11. It want to grow and expand constantly.
Lessons are learned this way.
12. Works best as a whole unit and not in conflict with a competing concept.
This is what EFTers mean by congruence.
13. It likes symbols and metaphors.
This is why many of us use it often in our work. Thinking in pictures accesses this part of our brains easily.
14. Projects everything onto “other” or outer circumstances.
15. It’s lazy!
It wants what it wants without effort. If you aren’t motivated then this concept will drive you to inertia.
16. Won’t take no for an answer.
We all know that affirmations shouldn’t include negative statements and this is why. In EFT we address this by saying we love ourselves in spite of our failures.
