Get More Mind Power!

Any of you who have heard me speak, know that the functioning of the human mind is a subject about which I am passionate. My interest began in childhood. I noticed that many people said things that were not congruent with the actions they took. In other words they didn’t “walk their talk”. These people, in most cases, were not conscious of the disconnect between their words and their actions. Their core beliefs are what formed their actions and could not be overcome simply by them wanting to be different. So how does this happen?
To understand behavior its important to understand how the behavior is formed. We all have a conscious and a subconscious mind. The conscious mind is where all linear analytical thought takes place and the subconscious mind is where all emotions, memories, daydreams, reactions, habits and patterns, images and pictures and the autonomic nervous system function. Fully 88% of the mind is “subconscious”. The average person spends 50-80 percent of their waking day in their subconscious mind. Your memories and experiences in your past are what create who you are today. To change who you are its important to let go of the past which has essentially programmed you to behave in a certain way.
All behavioral change takes place at the subconscious level. So in order to change a behavior, your thinking about yourself must change first.  This is the premise behind “The Secret” and all kinds of “law of attraction” writings.  When you focus on what you want,  you draw more to you.  In other words you become what you think about the most.  The more positive changes that happen from these new thoughts the more they are reinforced in your subconscious mind.
Self hypnosis is a great way to get more positive thoughts and therefore more positive behaviors.  When in hypnosis the positive thought, suggestions or affirmations go into the mind at a deeper level.  It is this ability to get the thoughts into the subconscious which makes hypnosis and self hypnosis so powerful.
When you use your mind in this way, the new thoughts and or behaviors become automatic.   This is “mind power”.
