Re-program Your Mind for GOOD! (Part 4)

There’s a saying: “Whatever the mind can conceive, it can achieve.”

If you can think up an idea, you also have the capacity to achieve it. I’m in the process of re-creating my life how I choose it to be, and there’s nothing stopping you from doing the same – other than the seeds that are planted in your subconscious mind.

Now there’s another level to this: your subconscious mind makes sure that you function exactly according to your programming.  It makes sure that everything you SAY and DO is consistent with your ‘master program’.  What IS your master program? Remember I said that you were programmed between the ages of 0-7?  Anything that goes into your subconscious mind during this imprint period becomes the program you run on for the rest of your life – unless you change it, and changing it isn’t that easy; it’s like un-installing all the programs from a computer, then re-installing new ones.  Well I wish it was as simple as that! This isn’t stuff I’m just regurgitating from a book, it’s information I had to learn in order to re-program my own mind, because I kept sabotaging my success.  For instance, when I was 19 I met this beautiful soul. We were the same age and he was the perfect boyfriend.  I’d never had anyone show me such unconditional love, I couldn’t do anything wrong in his eyes.  He was the physical MANifestation of God’s Love for me.  When we were both 21, he proposed.  But as soon as I got the engagement ring on my finger, I started to sabotage the relationship.  I cheated on him and we broke up.  I ended up having my children with men who didn’t truly love me, while he’s been married over 20 years.  I even had another chance at true love as a single mother with two young suns, but my subconscious programming wouldn’t allow me to believe I was worthy or deserving of such love.  On another occasion, in 2009 I received a lump sum of over £20,000, and within 3 months, I’d spent it all and was worse off than before I received the money!  How could this be possible?  My subconscious programming wouldn’t allow me to hold on to the money – I was programmed to be poor, a failure, and to not accept anything good that came my way, because I wasn’t worthy or deserving of it.

Your subconscious programming is the key to your SUCCESS or FAILURE.  If you’ve been programmed for success from an early age, great!  But if you’ve been programmed for failure, you must change your subconscious programming.  This is where ‘The Secret‘ and other Law of Attraction material failed many of us, because they didn’t go into our subconscious programming.

To get to the ROOT CAUSE of your issues, you have to dig deep into your subconscious mind.  No-one can re-program your mind for you.  Well, there are NLP practitioners and hypnotists, but personally, I’m a bit dubious about subjecting my subconscious mind to someone else’s suggestions.   So I’ve accumulated hundreds of Positive Affirmations relating to health, relationships, business, family, finances etc which I can share with you to help you re-program your subconscious mind.

Now I’ll let you into a little secret of my own, which I shared in the book ‘How to Get the Ring On Your Finger’, and which I also take people through on my Retreats:  When you’ve developed your list of Positive Affirmations (which I can help you with), record them onto your smartphone using the voice recorder. You can play some meditation music in the background if you like, to help relax your mind.  Play them to yourself when you’re in a relaxed state, like when you’re about to go to sleep, or waking up.  Be sure to turn off any distractions before you start.  If you’re using your phone, put it on flight mode to avoid any interruptions.  I’ll get you started with a few affirmations from my own collection, repeat them to your Self slowly, deliberately, and repeatedly:

“I am whole, perfect, strong, powerful, loving, harmonious and happy”

“I am in perfect health; mind, spirit and body”

“I am mentally, emotionally, spiritually, physically and financially FREE!”

“I am the master of all my thoughts and feelings”

“All my thoughts are rooted in love”

“I am consciously uprooting negative thoughts and replacing them with positive thoughts”

“I am planting Seeds of Love in the Garden of my mind”

“I am operating on the highest frequency, which is love”

“I am re-programming my subconscious mind for GOOD”

Hmmmm….how do you feel now?

What is YOUR Subconscious Programming? (Part 3)

Ok, let’s use another metaphor; think of your subconscious mind as a computer; a computer runs on a PROGRAM, or on various programs.  Until it’s programmed, it can do nothing.  A young child’s mind is like an un-programmed computer.

While I was going through the process of figuring out my mind in order to get it to work properly, I discovered that children go through what’s known as the ‘imprint period’, between the ages of 0-7.  Whatever they’re told repeatedly during this period becomes their subconscious programming. This subconscious programming is very difficult to change after the imprint period.  That’s why Frederick Douglas said “It’s much easier to raise strong children, than to mend broken adults”, and why the bible says “Train up a child in the way it should go, and when it is old, it will not depart from it”.  These are two examples of how deep this programming goes.

Now what if you were programmed for failure, like I was?

My programming at home was ‘You’re ugly, you’re worthless, you’re good-for-nothing, you don’t deserve it (whatever I wanted), and ‘not good enough’ (anything that I did)’.  Then on top of that I went to church every week where I was programmed to beLIEve I was born in sin,  was a was a poor, wretched sinner, was unworthy, and that I needed to be washed white as snow by a white savior in order to feel good about myself.  I’m not saying this to name or shame anyone, I’m simply sharing what I found when I dug deep into my subconscious mind, to get to the ROOT CAUSE of my issues.  So by the time I was in my early twenties, I had low self-esteem, didn’t believe in myself or my God-given talents, was a blocked writer and artist, suffered from severe bouts of depression, had mental breakdowns, and was even suicidal; I didn’t think my life was worth living.  Obviously I didn’t kill myself, but I thought about it enough times!

After the birth of my second sun, I knew I had to fix up; it wasn’t just my life at stake anymore, I had two little people to think about as well.  So I started the process of Self-healing.  This was back in the 90’s.  At the time, Anthony Robbins was all the rage on the Self-development scene; I read his books, listened to his CD’s, and even attended one of his seminars. I also read lots of other Self-development books like ‘The Magic of Thinking Big’ by David J. Schwartz,  ‘As a Man Thinketh’ by James Allen, ‘Feel the Fear and Do it Anyway’ by Susan Jeffers, and ‘The Artist’s Way’ by Julia Cameron.  They all began to show me the creative power of my mind.  But it was in 2007 when ‘The Secret‘ had exploded on the scene, that I really began to take control of my thoughts.  At the time I was homeless; I’d sent my 3 suns to live with their fathers, and was at my lowest point ever. Yet this was my biggest opportunity to change my life for GOOD.  I started learning how to meditate, and as a result, I unblocked as a writer and artist, painted 11 paintings, published three books, and wrote and recorded over 30 poems, all of which were creative expressions of what I was learning at the time – the creative power of my  mind.  But something else extraordinary began to happen; I began to access my super-conscious mind.

What is your super-conscious mind, and how do you access it?

I would say that your super-conscious mind is the part of you that’s connected to your Source.  You can only access your super-conscious mind through your sub-conscious mind.  Think of it like this:

Your conscious mind is on ground level, your sub-conscious mind is underground, and your super-conscious mind is way up in the skies…. What does this remind you of?  You’re right, a tick!  (Maybe Nike knows something we don’t – well, we do now!)  I didn’t learn this from anywhere, it came to me while I was writing this ARTicle,  I was like, WOW!  But where did this idea come from?  My super-conscious mind.  I have a tendency to auto-write, which means, I’m not really thinking about what I’m writing – I’m not consciously making it up, I simply allow it to come through me; much like how this ARTicle was written (It was originally meant to be a speech).  I also wrote 46,000 words of my Self-help novel ‘Journey of a Sister’ that way, and they formed the most beautiful story-line!  I didn’t sit down and construct the beginning, middle and end, like they teach you to do in Creative Writing classes, I let the story unfold by itself.  These are examples of how I use my super-conscious mind. So in order to access your super-conscious mind, you need to go down into your sub-conscious mind, which means your conscious mind needs to be put to rest.  This is the purpose of meditation, or relaxation.  If your mind is constantly on the go, you won’t be able to access your super-conscious mind.  If you allow yourself to be distracted by the tv, radio, phone calls, internet etc, you won’t be able to access your super-conscious mind.  Let me give you another example: One day I was lying on the sofa in a state of deep relaxation.  I wasn’t meditating, I was listening to one of my favourite indie groups, Fertile Ground. As I listened to their track (also called ‘Fertile Ground’) with my eyes closed, I was drifting in between sleep and consciousness – when all of a sudden this image just flashed in my mind:

It was only for a split second, but it was as if it left an impression on my mind, because I was able to get up and draw all the details. Now, I know this image didn’t come from ME, because I wasn’t even able to relate to it at first!  It took around 3 months for me to get around to painting it, because I found her big belly a bit off-putting; I certainly wasn’t feeling broody, and I’m not keen on the idea of a ‘white wedding’ either.  Yet ‘Love Bump‘ now illustrates Year 11 of ‘Journey of a Sister‘!

I didn’t think up the whole composition, so where did it come from?  I had accessed the Universal Mind (where all ideas reside) through my super-conscious mind, because my conscious mind was laid to rest.  I was drifting in and out of sleep, so my sub-conscious mind was dominant, and somehow, I had connected with my super-conscious (probably with the aid of the music I was listening to).

Now the title of this blog series is ‘Use Your Subconscious Mind to Create the Life YOU Choose’.  I had set an intention long before doing my paintings, writing my books, or recording my poetry, to buy my house with cash.  Once I set the intention, I began to be in-spired and to attract everything I needed to help me reach my goal.  It didn’t happen overnight…I’ve been at this for over 15 years.

Yes, there’s a process.

So let’s get back to the metaphor of the mind being a garden; there are different types of seeds you can plant, some take longer to blossom and bloom than others – the process doesn’t happen overnight – sometimes I wondered if it even really worked at all!  But each time I questioned the process, I was reminded that I didn’t plant a flower, I’d planted a TREE.

Most people would have given up by now, but what else could I do? Go and get a 9-5 job? That would never help me reach my goal!  Go back to uni and get a degree in creative writing or art? I’ve always dropped out of classes because they stifled my free-spirited way of creating.

I just had to trust the process….
