Transform Your Life Radically – With This 10 Minutes Exercise!
Your subconscious is always awake and on duty. It controls heartbeat, blood circulation and digestion. Simply all vital processes and functions of your body and knows the answers to all your problems.
“Your subconscious mind works continuously, while you are awake, and while you sleep.”–Napoleon Hill
What happens at your subconscious level affects the events at your conscious level. In other words, what happens inside, even unconsciously, eventually becomes your reality. As Hill further argues, “the subconscious mind will turn into its physical equivalence, using the most direct and practical available means.”
Consequently, your goal is to direct your subconscious mind to the results you are looking for. Additionally, you want to use your subconscious mind to unlock connections and solutions to your problems and projects.
Here are simple routines to get started:
10 Minutes Before Sleep
“Never go to sleep without a request to your subconscious” – Thomas Edison
It is common practice for many of the most successful people in the world to target the action of their subconscious mind while they sleep, writes Inc.
Take a few moments before you go to bed to meditate and write down what you are trying to achieve.
Ask a bunch of questions related to that matter. According to Edison’s words, make some “requests”. Write down those questions and thoughts on paper. If the questions are more specific, the answers will be clearer.
As you sleep, your subconscious mind will start working on these things.
Ten Minutes After Waking Up
Studies confirm that the brain, especially the prefrontal cortex, is most active and ready for creativity immediately after sleep. Your subconscious mind swirled freely with your mind while you were sleeping, creating contextual and time-related ties. Creativity, ultimately, connects different parts of the brain.
In a recent interview with Tim Ferriss, Josh Waitzkin, the world champion in Tai Chi and chess genius, explains his morning routine in order to exploit the subconscious discoveries and connections he has experienced while he is sleeping.
Unlike 80 percent of people aged 18 to 44 who check their smart phones 15 minutes after waking up, Waitzkin goes to a quiet place, meditates and writes in his diary.
He writes his thoughts for a few minutes. And instead of focusing on people in the phone notification, Waitzkin’s focus is different. Thus he enters into his higher areas of clarity, learning and creativity – that’s what he calls “crystallized intelligence.”
If you don’t have an experience in running a diary, the idea of “throwing thoughts” can be difficult to implement. It is good to focus your thoughts toward your goals.
Consider the “demands” that you have extradited to your subconscious before you went to bed. You asked a lot of questions. You have been thinking and writing the things you are trying to achieve.
Now, let the first thing you do in the morning be writing down everything that comes to mind. When your creative brain is the most harmonious, after subconscious training in your sleep.
A man cannot directly choose his circumstances, but he can choose his thoughts, and so indirectly, yet surely, shape his circumstances – James Allen
Mental creation always precedes physical creation. Before the building is physically built, there is a blueprint.
Your thoughts are the life plan you build day by day. When you learn to channel your thoughts and mindset – consciously and subconsciously – you create the conditions that make achieving your goals inevitable.
You are the designer of your destiny. This simple routine will help you crystallize where you want to go and how to get there.
