Imagine if you could create the EXACT life that you wanted… What is the one thing you would want more than anything else? Is it confidence and charisma? Or maybe it’s money and power? Perhaps you only want love and a family. Whatever it is through the power of auto suggestion it is possible for you…
What is Auto Suggestion?
The dictionary definition of auto suggestion is “the hypnotic or subconscious adoption of an idea which one has originated oneself.” What this means is you can train your subconscious mind to help you achieve the goal that you have chosen for yourself. I’ve spoken before about the different ways you can reprogramme the subconscious mind and why it is so important to do so. And this is just one of the many ways in which you can do it.
Basically, the goal of auto suggestion is to guide your thoughts and feelings, instead of thinking about anything all day long, and in doing so changing your actions and eventually your behavior. The power of auto suggestion normally occurs through a verbal affirmation or an image that you conjure in your head repeatedly. Because by thinking or seeing your new suggestion, your subconscious eventually becomes dominated by those thoughts. And in doing so your behavior will change to fit your thoughts! Pretty simple right?
How Does Auto Suggestion Work?
Your subconscious mind is in control of 95% of everything you do. Your behavior, your actions and especially the thoughts you aren’t even aware you’re having. If you want to know how much control your subconscious mind has over you, just think about the fact that you never concentrate on keeping your heart beating. Because your subconscious does it automatically. What else is it doing for you automatically that you aren’t aware of?
Now luckily there is still 5% of your mind that you can control AND even better, this 5% can influence your subconscious and change your thought patterns completely.
So by using the power of auto suggestion you will be able to:
- Get healthier
- Lose your fears
- Overcome bad habits
- Increase your income
- Become more charismatic and confident
- And generally, master your life.
How To Make The Power Of Auto Suggestion Work For You
Are you starting to see why auto suggestion is so important? Now you are aware there is a direct link between you and the ability to become everything you want. All you have to do is change your thoughts and replace them with better ones! If you want auto suggestion to REALLY work for you there are three steps that you MUST follow.
1. Practice As Often As You Can
How long do you think you’ve been stuck in the same thought patterns? A year? 5 years? 10 years? You could have been thinking the same thought patterns since your personality started to develop. So for the power of auto suggestion to work you need to start practising it as often as possible.
The bare minimum should be a repetition in the morning when you wake up, a repetition in the evening before bed and 4-5 repetitions through the day at various times. Obviously the more often you can do it the better.
2. Do It With Feeling
The thoughts you think are not what change your subconscious. It is the emotion behind those feelings. If you constantly feel angry WHILST thinking angry thoughts you bring anger into your life. The same is true with all your emotions. So whatever you want to achieve, imagine the feeling you’d feel when you’d done it. And then incorporate that into your thought. If you take one thing from this make sure it’s that you know the power of auto suggestion comes from the emotions you are feeling during the process.
If you’re struggling to think of the feeling that you should feel the best two go to feelings are faith and love in that order. I don’t know what it is about those two emotions but feeling those when you’re auto suggesting gives your thoughts the juice they need to push through to your subconscious.
So whatever you want in your life, start thinking AND believing, with complete faith, that it is already yours. You’ve just got to put in the work to get it. Become so confident that you are going to succeed, there is nothing else for you to do EXCEPT succeed.
3. Write Down Your Auto Suggestion
When you think something in your head that is the only place it exists, it may not feel real. But when you put something down on paper and read it repeatedly. It makes your goal physical it makes it more real in your head. Doing this also gives you the added benefit of a reminder. Place the written down auto suggestion somewhere you can see it repeatedly. And every time you see it, read it with faith that it will come into fruition.
Some great places to leave it are by your bed, in your bathroom mirror, and on a door you use frequently.
When Doesn’t It Work?
There are times when auto suggestion won’t work for you. But that’s not because of auto suggestion but because of you. Because this isn’t a new phenomenon it goes back hundreds of years. You can see it in Buddha’s words that ‘what we think we become’ or in the bible the phrase ‘we reap what we sow’. Because what we sow in our minds is what we have to reap. Nothing more or nothing less.
If you’re not getting the results from auto suggestion it’s either because you haven’t stuck with it for long enough, haven’t had emotion behind what you thought OR you simply don’t believe what you are telling yourself. Your subconscious can only receive one message from everything you think. And it relies on what you’re feeling. So if you’re telling yourself you’re going to have £10000 by next December but you don’t believe it. It’s going to follow your emotion not the thought.
