You do the Programming

Today, I’m going to give four easy to use self-hypnosis tools.

Let me start by giving you a very quick and easy understanding of what hypnosis is – it’s simply a matter of giving instructions to your sub-conscious mind.  The subconscious mind is receiving instructions from you all of the time but when under hypnosis, you are able to speak directly to the subconscious.  This allows the instructions to be incorporated deeper and faster.

There are a variety of ways you can do this:

  1. Self-hypnosis.  This can by done on your own or with the help of a guided professional or audio.
  2. Reading.  If there is something you really want to download into your subconscious, find some quality reading material and then make a conscious effort to read and re-read it for deep understanding.
  3. Meditation.  Start with the information you want to program, spend some time studying it, then go into contemplative meditation with your thoughts revolving only around that subject.
  4. Affirmations.  My personal favorite of course.  Since you can use affirmations virtually anytime or place, they are an extremely powerful tool for programming your subconscious.

Your life is run by the instructions in your subconscious mind.  If you want change in your life, you need to give the subconscious the instructions you expect it to operate from.  The more you expose your mind to an idea, feeling or belief, the deeper it goes.  This is how you program your subconscious mind.

AFFIRMATION: The power to transform my life is a wonderful gift that I appreciate and use.

One thing I’ve learned about people who are most successful is that they have things in their life they insist upon. Things that they must do on a consistent basis.
Things that are not negotiable.

So here’s the big question – What’s non-negotiable in your life?

What are the things that you must do every day or week or month?
It could be reading something inspirational, spending time with family, attending a spiritual center, or donating to a charity.

What takes the highest priority in your life?
Is it regular exercise, daily affirmations, volunteering, meditation, journaling, prayer?

What’s non-negotiable for you?

When you build your life around a set of standard practices that must take place, you build your life on a solid bedrock that will support and sustain your success.

What are you accepting?

Look around at your life.  What are you accepting or allowing that you could do something about but you are not.
Are you accepting a relationship that is not good for you?
How about a job that you can’t stand?
Could your health and fitness be better or are you just accepting it?

Have you decided that things are just going to be a certain way because you: 

  • don’t have the money
  • are a woman
  • lack the education
  • can’t find the answers
  • or (fill in the  _____________ with your story).

While there may always be some things that you’ll decide to be OK with, I want to challenge you to do something about the things you are not.  

Look at your life and pick just 1 thing – something that if it were different, would really improve the quality of your life.
Next – decide that “this will change”.
Finally, start taking action that will move you in the direction of change.
