“THE FUTURE MUST BECOME PRESENT IN YOUR MIND.” —NEVILLE GODDARD
I believe that our subconscious mind is powerful.
Tapping into the power of that part of our mind can be used to our benefit for many things—physical healing, ridding of limiting beliefs, loving our selves, and the list goes on.
Despite the abundant uses of our subconscious mind, in this article we’re going to tap into the power of it by using it to help reach your goals.
How do you use your subconscious mind to reach your goals?
Well, I’ll get into the specifics in a bit, but the general idea is that you visualize yourself in the position that you want to be in.
When you take time out of your day or night to do that, you send messages (AKA energy waves) to the Universe that that’s what you want. You get clear, the Universe gets the message, and eventually you get what you want.
Obviously, in order to reach your goals, you need to work towards them. If your goal is to get 10,000 subscribers on YouTube, you can’t just lay on bed, imagining people subscribing to your channel. You have to do that and still make the videos, learn about keywords, et cetera.
But, now lets get to the question again: How do you use your subconscious mind to reach your goals?
1. REALLY WANT THAT SHIT
“All transformation begins with an intense, burning desire to be transformed.” —Neville Goddard
Whatever your goal is—desire it. Want it so bad that you will do anything to get it. Have it be the first thing you think of in the morning and the last thing you think of at night.
Make sure that you’re passionate about it, and that you really want it because if you don’t (or if you just think you do), then you won’t do what it takes to reach your goal. You won’t really care.
2. THE POWER OF ASSUMPTION
This is the most important thing on here. This is where you actually use your subconscious mind.
The power of assumption is you assuming that you already are where you’d like to be. You don’t think as “I would like to be,” you think as, “I am.”
You think from the thing itself—from the idea instead of the idea. You put yourself in the place as if you were already living it. You assume.
You let go of your present self, and for a while, in your mind, you live as if you already were.
Have faith in your thoughts, believe in them, and be confident that the state you’re in will become your reality—is your reality.
If you don’t believe in yourself, then the Universe will pick up on that. It’ll think, Oh they’re not that serious, so it doesn’t matter if I help them out.
If you don’t assume that what you’re imagining, what you’re thinking about every night before bed is true, then it won’t be.
“An assumption, if persisted in, will harden into a fact.” —Neville Goddard
You have to assume that your goal has already been acheived until, next thing you know, it’s practically tangible, and you’re actually living it.
Imagine things as they are, not as you want them to be.
When you’re imagine these things, immerse yourself in the emotions. Feel the joy and the excitement of the moment. Lose yourself in it until you can no longer feel what your present self was feeling. Your feelings should have your full attention, leaving no space for all the doubt and fear that you’ve been feeling.
3. DON’T BE A PESSIMIST WHILE DOING THIS
Resist: “Withstand the action or effect of.”
When you resist something, you’re still paying attention to what you’re resisting. When you resist the cold by wearing a jacket, you’re still giving attention to the cold, right?
Renounce: “Refuse to recognize or abide by any longer.”
When you renounce something you literally just ignore the sonabitch that’s bothering you. You’re not even bothering to give it any attention. You simply refuse to acknowledge it’s existence.
The biggest difference is that:
Resist = attention
Renounce = ignore
When you’re taking the time to assume, you don’t want to resist the negativity, the doubts, or fears that try to crawl up to you like a lion attempting to catch a deer. Why not? Because you’re still accepting the fact that those thoughts and emotions are there. You’re giving it attention even if you’re not giving in to them.
So, while you’re doing this exercise, renounce the thoughts and feelings. Act like they don’t even exist. Again, become possessed by what you’re feeling from the imagining until everything else is gone.
You have the power to direct your thoughts and imagination. So, don’t push down the negativity—ignore it.
4. OUTSIDE OF YOUR SUBCONSCIOUS MIND, BE
Don’t waste time searching for what you want. Live in it. Live like an aspiring entrepreneur to be an entrepreneur. Live like a director to be a director. Practice like a professional dancer to be a professional dancer.
Live as though you already are what you want to be.
When you say the words, “I will be,” then you’re stating that “You are not.” You’re admitting it, but fuck that. Instead of saying that you’ll be an entrepreneur, saying that you’re already an aspiring entrepreneur makes all the difference.
Once you change your mentality, and you’re what you need to be, the game changes. All of a sudden, you’re working harder, you’re making connections, and opportunities start popping up.
You already have what you want, you already are what you want.
- really want it
- assume that you’re where you want to be
- ignore doubts and fears
- be—live as though you already are
- share this with someone who will benefit from this!
