Every event, everything, and every condition in our lives are a result of thoughts we have had. Our thoughts are the beginning point of the lives we create for ourselves. What we achieve is directly related to the amount of attention we can focus on the things we want- and the exclusion of thoughts that do not support our desires.
The more supportive thoughts we have means that our ideas/desires can grow and develop and to a point when they will take possession of our will. And when we are possessed with the idea of achieving or attaining our goals, the creative power of our minds will naturally take control. This is great…..
This is what we want, this is the ‘turning point,’ because, every activity of our body and mind will naturally become directed to shape more thoughts and actions related to our goals. And once this happens, there is no going back and our goals and desires will eventually manifest in tangible form.
So, how do we get from where we are now, to become one of the gifted few who can manifest the awesome lives that most people only ever get to dream of?
Conscious Thinking Creates A Better Future.
By unconsciously reacting, we can only ever repeat stuff that is already programmed into our subconscious mind. This means we will repeat our past mistakes and attract similar circumstances to those we already have. To create a better future, we have to become conscious thinkers and change our mindset to match the better lives we wish to be living.
Our unconscious mind is a map of our past and cannot help us create a better future
Psychologists tell us that for up to ninety-five percent of each day we are just going through the motions of living. We are unconsciously sleepwalking through our days without paying much attention to what is going on. Our consciousness is not engaged and we are living in ‘autopilot’ mode. And this is ok if we want our lives to continue as they are. However, if we desire to change some aspects of our lives we need to consciously regain control of our thoughts…..
The problem with being in autopilot mode most of the time is that it doesn’t allow for anything original or new to happen. Our subconscious mind can only direct us to react to situations, events, and people in ways we already know and have done many times before. This is because our subconscious mind cannot think or reason independently. That is not its purpose……
Our subconscious mind is running our daily lives for the majority of the time and it can only direct our lives according to the information that it is programmed with. Therefore, it stands to reason that we will continue to receive lives that look pretty similar to what we are already living. The exception to this continuity is the limited times that we are consciously directing our thoughts towards our goals and dreams. This is when we can have a positive effect on our future circumstances.
However, progress will be slow unless we can find ways to become consumed by our desires. We need to find ways to focus more of our conscious creative energies on the lives we wish to create for ourselves. And this also necessitates that we spend a lot less time thinking about things that are not aligned with our goals and dreams.
Life presents us with many opportunities to achieve our dreams every day. Are we taking advantage of them?
Opportunities to step outside of the box and overcome our fears are presented to us every day. And yet, how often do we take advantage of the life-expanding opportunities they could provide?
These are important questions because we are here to evolve, grow, expand, and above all else, we are here to live fantastic lives! We cannot live wonderful, fulfilling, and fantastic lives when we are existing on auto-pilot mode for ninety-five percent of each day! Because, when our conscious mind is not engaged, we’re not fully present, we are just mindlessly reacting in habitual ways……
When we are on autopilot, our thoughts, feelings, and actions are motivated by our past experiences that are stored in our subconscious minds. And when our unconscious mind is in control of our thoughts and actions, we cannot create anything new. We just get more of the same content into our lives…… this is just the way our wonderful brains work, and we cannot change this!
So, if you’re living in auto-pilot mode most of the time, like most people, don’t expect your life to suddenly give you everything you want. It just can’t happen like that! The Law of Attraction can only provide more of the same stuff that matches our unconscious thoughts and beliefs…… Yes, this means that your life will continue pretty much the same as it is now!
If we understand this, we will know how to create a better life for ourselves and our loved ones! WE do it by becoming consciously present more of the time and by focusing with passion on the amazing lives that we want to be living! It’s only when we are consciously aware that we can see and take advantage of new opportunities.
Our subconscious minds are directing our lives according to the beliefs we have developed throughout our lives.
Our subconscious minds are not able to think or reason independently. They are programmed from all the information that they are exposed to. And since it is WE who are exposing OURSELVES to various information all day and every day, WE are responsible for the content in our subconscious! This is the information that forms our beliefs and then is guiding (in control of) ninety-five percent of our lives.
Our beliefs have not suddenly appeared from out of nowhere. They are the results of accumulated information that we have allowed into our minds. It stands to reason then, that if we are not happy with our lives, we need to be better ‘gate keepers’ to the information that we let into our subconscious.
Our beliefs have developed over time and our lives have become a direct reflection of the beliefs we hold. For example, if we are continually exposed to poverty and lack as a way of life when we are young, we are almost certain to adopt this as our mindset, and it will then become our future life experience…… unless we can change our beliefs!
And fortunately for us, WE CAN CHANGE OUR BELIEFS! This is why we have a conscious mind. This is our active aspect of the mind, the control panel to our lives. And this is our key to a better future. Because it is only when we are consciously aware that we can actively change our beliefs and personalities.
What role does our conscious mind play in manifesting our goals and dreams?
Our thoughts actively create our feelings and emotional state of being. When we are angry, people can sense it, and some, who are not a match to this vibration, will stay away. However, angry people will resonate with us and can be attracted to us. Conversely, when we are in love, we will radiate or glow with joy, enthusiasm, and appreciation…. There is no room for anger or fear near us, and life just seems to be magical.
This is important to understand because to ‘receive what we want, we need to become a vibrational match to it…. And to become a vibrational match, we need to think ONLY thoughts that align with our goals and dreams. We can achieve this by going and meditating in a cave for a year, without any distractions, and without having any contradictory thoughts, OR……
…….. We can begin making small lifestyle changes to positively impact our beliefs and responses to accurately reflect the reality we wish to create. The NEW changes we implement are like planting NEW seeds (ideas) into our subconscious minds. Here, if we continue to nourish them, they will germinate, take root, and grow into a new belief.
These new beliefs, with time, will become part of our unconscious ‘go-to’ responses when we are existing in auto-pilot mode. This is a very important concept to understand….. Because it means that our new beliefs, instead of guiding us to create lives with more of the same content, are now wired to direct us to achieve our goals and dreams.
Our subconscious minds can now be considered to be our faithful servants and are instrumental in directing us to places, people, and events that will enable us to achieve our desires.
To drive home the point: How can conscious thinking create a better life for me?
- Our subconscious mind is active for up to ninety-five percent of our waking lives. It is therefore responsible for the majority of the content we attract to us and call ‘our life.’
- Most of us have some or many limiting subconscious programs/beliefs that are preventing us from achieving our goals.
- Beliefs are an accumulation of the information that we expose ourselves to daily. Our subconscious minds absorb all of it, the stuff we want equally with the stuff that we don’t want.
- Our subconscious mind does not think or reason independently but is subservient to our conscious mind.
- We can create new beneficial beliefs by exposing ourselves to information, ideas, and experiences that align with the ‘better lives’ we wish to create for ourselves.
The main emphasis here is that we need to become conscious/aware of ‘what portion of each day are we a vibrational match to that which we want to manifest into our lives?’
To get what we want, we need to spend MORE time FEELING the way we would once our dream has been realized. This means WE NEED TO BE FORWARD FEELING, RATHER THAN CURRENT THINKING!
For me, this means that I need to be feeling happy, powerful, glad, satisfied, in love, appreciative, and grateful at all times because my dreams are cantered around holistic wellbeing, joy, and abundance, instead of this model new car, that new job, or falling in love with a particular type of person.
However, we are all different, and we all have different goals, dreams, and desires. And it’s perfectly ok to want to manifest a pay rise, buy a new purse, or score the hot partner. Every one of our desires is valid and achievable because given enough time and practice, we can move any of our desires from our conscious mind into our subconscious, where they become the new beliefs that direct the content of our lives.
All we have to do to achieve our better futures is be in the FUTURE FEELING MODE (attracting mode) more of the time….. More than we are in the ‘life sucks mode, why can’t I get that mode, I don’t like myself mode! One attitude will get you what you want, and the other will keep you receiving as you already are…… Is it time for a change in attitude??????
Why not do what I do to feel better?
I write this page and many others like it on my website. I do this with passion in the hopes that I can inspire others to take control of their lives, and learn to live in ways that bring them much abundance, joy, love, and satisfaction. But more than that, learning, researching, and writing is focusing my mind only on the good things….. so all the effort I put into creating this website is ‘positive focused.’ This ‘JOB’ is not only enjoyable and inspiring but is creating the better future I desire by raising my vibration…..
