The subconscious however, does not have a filter. It believes and takes at face value whatever we think or suggest. You’ve heard of people in a hypnotic state bending to the power of suggestion, right? When the hypnotist gets the person into a deeply relaxed state, he/she can then speak directly to the subconscious. People have spiked fevers when it was suggested that they were very ill, or developed a limp when they were told they could not walk, or even exhibited a rash when told they were allergic to something! This demonstrates the power of the subconscious to bring into manifestation whatever the dominant thought may be. Now you see why we hear “you are what you think” or “whatever you think will become” because your subconscious is always working… even when the inputs/beliefs/thoughts are negative.
The Law of Attraction (LoA) works in concert with our subconscious.. bringing into manifestation that which we think on a subconscious level. Feeding the mind with positive, healthy forward thinking thoughts will result in positive manifestations or creations. An awesome book to check out is “The power of the subconscious mind” by Joseph Murphy. I’ve realized the importance of cleaning up my mind and providing my subconscious with healthy, loving, healing thoughts and I know the best way to clean up the mind is to meditate.
Lately I’ve struggled to have a productive morning routine- but have since realized that the point of a morning routine is not “to be productive” but rather to prepare my subconscious for all that I intend for the day. Its the act of “tuning” in to the vibration or alignment that is key to leveraging the LoA to work for you. If you skip the tuning in part then the outcome will not be as rich! Plus, we all know the good stuff is in the process… the journey…. not the destination ❤
Here are some ideas for getting into alignment at the beginning and end of your day.
Tips for Mornings:
- Wake early, before the kids or before your partner. The quiet silent dark mornings can be an invitation to curl back asleep but they could also be a perfect fertile ground for designing the life you truly want.
- Drink a warm cup of lemon water to re-hydrate your body after a full nights sleep.
- Sit silently for bit this can be a formal meditation practice or can be a simple as just sitting and listening to your breath. I like to put a drop of Frankincense essential oil on my palm and deeply inhale. I inhale love and release fear. I inhale confidence and release doubt. I call inward inspired action and I release struggle forceful action.
- After sitting quietly, write down some things you are grateful for, things that make you happy. Then visualize your day.
- Unplug at least 15 – 30 min before bed. Stop looking at all screens. Artificial light is too stimulating for our minds.
- Diffuse calming essential oils like Lavender, Stress Away, Peace + Calming or Release to quiet your mind and calm the nervous system in preparation for sleep.
- Try to sit quietly and do 10 min of meditation or silent breathing. I listen to a positive guided meditation. I cast a vision of what I want to manifest in my life. I fill my subconscious with wonderful, happy, grateful thoughts so that while I sleep I can cultivate whatever it is that I desire.
