We all know how powerful our conscious mind is. But while the conscious mind is very powerful, the subconscious mind is even more powerful. You wouldn’t believe how powerful it really is.
Many things that we have learned during our early life got stuck in our subconscious minds. Our fear of something is there because our subconscious mind has learned to fear it. Even if it’s something not that serious.
So now that I have told you a little about the subconscious mind, how can you use this knowledge to help yourself with anxiety and depression?
Let me tell you how.
The good thing about subconscious mind is that it doesn’t see the difference between what is real and what is not real. That means that you can reprogram your subconscious mind. You can replace its old beliefs with new beliefs. If you fear something, you can reprogram that fear into joy.
For example, the reason why some people suffer from social anxiety is because their subconscious mind has learned that having this phobia is safe for them due to something terrible that has happened to them in the past. The subconscious mind tries to prevent those people from ever experiencing that situation again, and that’s why they develop social anxiety. Even if they consciously want to socialize with other people, even if they consciously know that there is nothing to be afraid of, the subconscious mind still stops them from socializing due to being more powerful.
So how can you reprogram it? I will tell you the one thing that you can do. It is very easy.
One of the best ways to reprogram subconscious mind is by saying or writing down positive affirmations. The best way to use them is when you are in a meditative state.
Affirmations always have to be in present tense. For example, if you have approach anxiety, your affirmation can be something like, “I easily approach people all the time.”
By repeating those words daily, you will slowly start to reprogram your subconscious mind that prevents you from approaching people. You should also know that the subconscious mind doesn’t see the difference between words such as, “I do.” and “I don’t.”, or “I can.” and “I can’t”, or “I am.” and “I am not.”, etc.
Try this out. Create as many positive affirmations as you can, and repeat them daily. After some time, you should notice some positive changes.
There are other ways to reprogram the subconscious mind, but I consider this one to be the best and the easiest way for you to apply. I may write about the other ways in near future.
