Have you heard people say that talking to yourself is a sign of madness? Well, nothing could be further from the truth. Every day people all over the globe use the power of autosuggestion to manage their inner thought processes and stay focused on achieving their goals.
Unlock the Power of your Subconscious
Your subconscious is the final frontier of your mind, where your dominant thoughts come together to form the actions you take in your life. If you do not learn to control your inner environment, then it will control you.
By using autosuggestions, you harness the power of your subconscious by controlling your dominant thoughts. What your subconscious focuses on, your conscious mind will work toward manifesting in reality.
Creating Autosuggestions that Bring Results
Autosuggestions are so much more than simply talking to yourself. They are carefully selected affirmations that you repeat to yourself on a regular basis throughout the day. Your subconscious mind is unable to determine the difference between reality and an illusory state.
This means that you are able to repeat things that are not yet true and your subconscious will accept them as true statements. Thus, you can successfully reprogram your mind to believe anything that you want by simply repeating an affirmation.
Word your autosuggestions carefully. Your subconscious does not recognize negatives. For example, if you want to quit smoking it is better to phrase your affirmation as ‘I am a non-smoker’, rather than ‘I don’t smoke’.
Can you see the difference between the two statements? In the second affirmation, your mind does not recognize the word ‘don’t’ and you have sabotaged your efforts before you start.
Ride the Emotional Wave
Seeding your emotion into your affirmation is one of the key factors of how to effectively practice autosuggestion techniques. When you repeat your affirmation, feel the feelings it inspires in your body, close your eyes and believe that you have achieved your goal. Focus on the feeling of achieving it while your repeat the auto-suggestive process.
Persistence Pays Off
You must have heard your Mathematics teacher tell you – ‘practice, practice, practice’. This is valid for nearly everything that you set your goal on. Repeat your autosuggestions whenever you have the chance. For best results, try it in a quiet room with the lights off. Focus on your breathing while being present in the moment, amplifying the feelings that rise in your mind.
Talking to yourself is not a sign of madness, but rather it is an empowering exercise that brings you closer to yourself, connecting your mind with your vision for the future. Try it for 30 days and log your results!
