Positive Statements on the Subconscious Mind:

“Any thought that is passed on to the subconscious often enough and convincingly enough is finally accepted.“
- Robert Collier

“Only one thing registers on the subconscious mind: repetitive application, practice. What you practice is what you manifest.”
- Fay Weldon

“Our subconscious minds have no sense of humor, play no jokes and cannot tell the difference between reality and an imagined thought or image. What we continually think about eventually will manifest in our lives.”
- Sidney Madwed

The Magic of Your Subconscious

Our conscious mind is astonishing. According to Bruce Lipton, Ph.D. , it processes information at 40 nerve impulse per second. Impressively fast. That is quick enough to make it through your shopping list at the grocery store and drive your car from home to work and back. Our conscious mind is what we are aware of perceiving in the world.

Did you know that there is much, much more to your mind?

Your subconscious mind is way beyond astonishing, it is magical. It processes information at 40,000,000 nerve pulses per second says Lipton. 40,000,000! That is more than 5,000 times the diameter of earth per second…magical. This means that your mind is picking up way more than you are consciously aware of. Your subconscious mind is so powerful that 95% of your daily activity is subconscious.

What does this mean?

This means that you need to, you must, get your subconscious on board if you want to change your life.

In the book Fascinate by Sally Hogshead, she discusses a research project carried out to test subconscious programming.

Researchers took an amnesia patient to an extremely complex labyrinth and asked him if he had been there before. He replied, “No.” They then asked the patient to head for the center of the labyrinth where there was a clearing; they would time how long it took him to reach the center. He did, and they recorded his time. The next day, the same research team took the same amnesia patient to the labyrinth and asked him if he had been there. Being an amnesia patient, he replied, “No.” They again asked him to find the center clearing and timed his journey through the labyrinth. The next day, same thing. Day after day, they took the patient to the labyrinth which he did not remember and timed his journey to the center.

The results of the experiment confirmed the wonders of the subconscious. Over time, the amnesia patient was able to find the center of the labyrinth quicker and quicker. Even though the patient had no conscious recollection of the labyrinth, his subconscious was picking up the pattern and increased his time to the center.

This has huge implications for making positive change in your life. The subconscious is programmed with repetition. This is why affirmations are powerful when repeated over and over and over again. Eventually the subconscious picks up the message (sometimes without conscious awareness) and begins to feed it back into your reality. For the amnesia patient, it manifested as a quicker time through the labyrinth. In your life, it may manifest as abundance, a new career, more loving relationships, whatever it is that you point your affirmations toward.

I do have full awareness that repetition is one of most common affirmation pitfalls. Heck, I run an affirmation website and have had trouble consistently remembering to say affirmations. There are a number of reasons why this is the case which I’ll get into in newsletters down the road, but for starters, post your affirmations all over the place as visual cues to say them, say them, say them. Check out this article: 101 Places to Put Affirmations to begin brainstorming how you can incorporate affirmations into your daily landscape.

Take full advantage of the magic of your subconscious and live out your dreams.
