Since 1989 I have had the honor of helping my clients find solutions and achieve their goals. In that time I have seen the power of the subconscious mind in action.
At the beginning of this life we used the power of our subconscious mind by trusting our intuition, perhaps speaking with angels and loved ones who have passed away. We imagined life to be the way we wanted it. Our play time was completely real.
However, as our lives unfolded, parents, teachers and society taught us to stop listening to our inner voice. Such a shame, too, since everything we needed to know was within reach.
The subconscious is the repository for imagination, intuition and creative problem solving. Our perception of every event in our lives is stored in the subconscious. Using the creative power of the mind, we can resolve the traumas from the past. At this time in history, more than ever, we need to access our power to focus on achieving the main goal that our soul came to accomplish.
In a recent conversation with my son about the election he mentioned that he “came to write” not become a voice in the political arena. Yes, he did. And I came to be of service through the art of hypnotherapy. Others did come to be of service in politics so they are right on track.
For those of us with a different life plan, how can we continue to be of service in our own unique way and not be dragged off center into fear and panic? Here are a few tips that might be helpful.
Tip #1: Present a Problem to Your Subconscious
The subconscious mind never sleeps. First, gather all your information. Write it down–both pros and cons. Once your research is complete, send a request to your subconscious in this way: as you fall asleep at night say to yourself, “I want to know which choice will be for my highest good.” Then let it go and go to sleep.
Within the next few days, your subconscious will provide your answer as you awaken in the morning, or at some time during the day when you are relaxed and your mind is elsewhere. Answers come in for me as I awaken, while I’m doing the dishes, in the shower and when I am driving on the freeway, just to name a few.
Tip #2: Listen to Your Intuition
When I was first learning to use my intuition, I bought a house. Initially, I had looked at this house and did not like it. I am not sure why I did not recognize that this was my perfect home. Perhaps I was distracted by the kids who were six and eleven.
At any rate, one day at work, I suddenly thought, “I want to buy that house on Raintree Place.” I called my realtor to let him know that I wanted to see it again. He reminded me that I had not liked this house initially. True, but something had shifted internally and I knew that I had to pay more attention. I felt very much “at home” in this house.
Tip #3: Send Love to Your Fear
In hypnosis or a meditative state, scan your body and find the place where fear has been living…. when you find that symbol of your fear, send love to it. That’s right, just love the part of you that feels fear. Love it just as you love all the special people in your life. Then watch the symbol transform and the fear melt away.
I hope that these simple tips will be helpful as you access the power that is your authentic self. Step up and take charge. Remember Rumi’s words, “Everything in the universe is within you. Ask all from yourself.”
