Autosuggestion - What Is It and Does It Work?

April 21, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 244

The subconscious is the storehouse of all our conditioning, our beliefs about ourselves, and our beliefs about the world. The subconscious mind makes no decisions. It must believe anything it is given. That means that consciously we have absolute power over what is in the subconscious mind and what it gives back to us.

Unfortunately, most of the time we allow our subconscious mind to control us. Old messages and old programming will bubble up from the subconscious, and if we do not learn to control and question our thoughts, we believe them. The fact is that we can make the subconscious work for us rather than against us.

The way to get the subconscious to work for us is through a technique called autosuggestion, commonly known as affirmations. The trick with using affirmations or autosuggestion is that it must be done consistently. It isn't enough to give ourselves positive affirmations once and expect a life-time of negative programming to be impeded for very long.

Autosuggestion must be done on a daily basis. It can be done when we first wake up in the morning or when we go to sleep at night. These are two very good times to work with affirmations because the conscious mind is so close to the subconscious. The doorway is open and we have greater access to what is inside.

This is the perfect to time to tell yourself, "I can." The idea of "I can" is one of the most powerful tools we can possibly use. From the time we are very young we are fed on a consistent diet of "you can't." There are literally thousands of affirmations that have been written. But the most powerful affirmations are specific to your own goals and desires.

Whatever your desires are, that is what you should affirm. For example, let's say you want to be a singer. A good affirmation for a singer would be, "I am so happy and grateful for my beautiful singing voice. I bring inspiration to others through the gift of song. I am well compensated for my musical artistry and always have more income than expenses."

Autosuggestion can be used for anything we want and are passionate about. Think up some affirmations that apply to you starting with "I'm so happy and grateful that-." Be very specific. In this way we can start to use the subconscious mind to attract to us the things that we desire. This is how autosuggestion works. Give it a try.
