This is a transcript of the presentation above
ON this page of our life coaching course / positive psychology course we reveal subconscious mind power techniques that help you to train your brain.

This exercise is the second part of our article on subconscious mind power techniques and will  show how to train your brain through simple subconscious mind power techniques. In this exercise we shall use an example goal of starting to go to the gym again after a long period of absence.


Subconscious Mind Power Techniques: How To Train Your Brain  Part 1 : Realisation.

As we mentioned previously, the subconscious mind is something of a lawyer when it comes to facts. For this reason it is very important to state our objective correctly. Normally, in this scenario, we might think something like,  ‘I have to go to the gym, but it’s going to hurt.’ This sentence is what we may consider realistic – our muscles may well hurt as we exercise – and should we say this to ourselves it almost certainly will become a reality because we will get what we asked for.

A better way to express our aim would be, ‘I am having fun at the gym and am pleased I am still fit.’ To some, this statement might seem unrealistic – fun… at the gym…? – but if we can just bring ourselves to say it, we will start our subconscious down the route of associating the gym with fun, not only making us want to go, but making the experience itself more enjoyable. This is the first step: state your objective in a positive way.

This point about simplicity and clarity of objective is very important. As any masters in positive psychology or life coaching teachers will tell you, the more simply you can express what you want, the more likely you are to get it.


Subconscious Mind Power Techniques Part 2: Translation

Now that we are stating our objective positively, we need to translate our statement into a language our subconscious mind can understand. To do this, we need to take the words, ‘I am having fun at the gym and am pleased that I am still fit,’ and translate them into images, sounds and feelings. Allow yourself to imagine many positive images, sounds, feelings and self talk that will produce the sensation of having fun at the gym. This will get your subconscious mind power working towards your conscious goal (to enjoy being at the gym).

Subconscious Mind Power Techniques Part 3 : Meditate

This bit is optional, but  meditating and silencing the conscious mind helps our subconscious mind power to take effect.  You can meditate wherever and whenever is convenient for you, and the basic meditation of closing your eyes focussing on your breath is perfectly adequate for this exercise.

As you meditate, just allow your mind to completely relax, then bring your desire, as stated in Part 1, to mind and say it a few times to yourself. ‘I am having fun at the gym and am pleased I am still fit.’ ‘I am… .’ Repeat the phrase just a few times.

Meditation is important for many many reasons, and not just for the subconscious mind. That’s why, in conjunction to our life coaching courses and positive psychology courses here on Lifeand Self, we also offer meditation training courses on our sister site

Subconscious Mind Power Techniques Part 4 : Turn imagination into reality

Now we need to bring the images, sounds and feelings from Part 2 to mind. The aim here is to make all stimuli as large, vibrant and realistic as possible. Allow yourself to be responsive to your imaginings and really pay attention to the imaginary scene your subconscious mind is painting.

Subconscious Mind Power Techniques: How To Train Your Brain Part 5 : Put the process aside

Once you feel that the process has taken effect – it will be evident – simply open your eyes and immediately think of something different. Remember, our conscious thoughts can stir our subconscious. By focussing our conscious mind entirely on something different, we allow our internal representation of the gym to take place in our subconscious, where it will change form towards the desire we expressed. By trusting in the process we allow it to take full effect. The next time we naturally happen to think about the gym we will find ourselves responding completely differently to the idea of the treadmill and the sweat. We will, quite naturally, feel the desire to go, and once there, be far more likely to enjoy the experience.

The above process has a million applications. It is principally used in Neuro-Linguistic Programming to create the motivation with which to achieve our goals and is applicable to limitless avenues in life. Try it on various stimuli to which you would like a different response, or to motivate yourself towards whatever goal you may have. Simply begin to experiment playfully with your mind via this simple positive psychology exercise and you will notice how your own subconscious works. Once you begin communicating with your subconscious you can create a natural congruence inside yourself that will pay dividends throughout. A healthy relationship between your conscious and subconscious is the seed that will bear a thousand fruits.
