5 Ways To Use The Power Of The Subconscious Mind

This week I wanted to introduce you to a guest post by Farouk Radwan.  I hope you enjoy it!

Most people know that the subconscious mind is very powerful and that it has much more power than the conscious mind does, however, still a lot of people fail to make good use  of the power of their subconscious mind.

According to a study, your subconscious mind can receive up to 2 billion bits of information per second! Think about the power you could have if you managed to make use of all of your subconscious mind’s power?

In this post I am going to tell you about five ways that will help you make perfect use of your subconscious mind.

Here are 5 simple ways you can use the power of your subconscious mind to improve your life…

 Sleep on your Problems

A study has shown that the mind organizes its thought at night, and as a result, this gives you an increased problem solving power.

One of the best ways to make use of the subconscious mind’s power to solve problems is to sleep on problems or in other words not to make a decision before you sleep on it.  Most problems will be resolved over night because of the power of the subconscious mind.

Use Creative Visualization

The subconscious mind can be given orders using images, videos and visualized scenes.  Let’s suppose that you want to reach a certain goal, the more you visualize your goal the more you will be giving your subconscious mind an indirect order to pursue such goal.

Most sport champions visualize their victory before they go for the games, in order to use the power of their subconscious minds.  If you are having a hard time  visualizing, why don’t you learn how  you to visualize what you want? Practice makes perfect. Visualization is a very important part of our creativity.

Program Yourself with Positive Media

Motivational songs, motivational movies, inspiring quotes or any other sort of positive media can program your subconscious mind indirectly and help you to have a more positive attitude towards life.  Do your best to get yourself exposed to as much positive media as you can.  On the other  hand, avoid negative ones, as they will also affect your subconscious mind in a negative way.

Get a Better Understanding of Your Emotions

Emotions are the way your subconscious mind uses to contact you.  Most people get this idea wrong and try to escape from bad emotions.  The right thing to do is to understand why your subconscious mind is sending such emotions, so that you can better communicate with it and correct your path.

Let’s suppose that the emotion you have was anxiety; in such case you need to examine your thoughts – what thought was triggering your feelings of anxiety?  This will help you find out why your subconscious mind is sending you such negative emotion.

Most probably, you will find that your subconscious is trying to send you a  message such as “you lack certain skills and you need to learn them”, “You need to take action”, “you need to take another road”, “it’s time to move forward”,” it’s time to change”.

Negative emotions are  signals that you need to get out, so to speak, of where you are now.  Take action to make a change. It doesn’t have to be a drastic action. Take one step at the time.

Understand the Subconscious Mind’s Rules

There are certain rules that govern your subconscious mind.  For example, one of these rules states that you get what you focus on, which means that if you believed in something you are going to find clues that proves its existence everywhere.

Let’s suppose that a person believes that he doesn’t look good, in such a case, whenever that person gets rejected he will quickly assume that he was rejected because of his looks, because he was focused on that idea.  When you become focused on an idea your subconscious mind forces you to encounter what proves it everywhere.  Remember, your subconscious mind always goes along with your deep down beliefs.

This is because what you believe, what you focus on, and what you vibrate, the law of attraction will manifest for you.  No matter if it’s a good thing or a bad thing.  This is why focusing on the positive is so important.

These were just a handful of examples of the subconscious mind’s rules.  When you understand the rules of the subconscious mind you will get to know yourself better and you will be able to make the best use out of it.

What are you doing to improve your results using your subconscious mind? Please, do tell in the comment area below!

    I will use this to make an experiment and see what’s going on. I think it is a good way to realize your self.

    I love the idea of sleeping… well, I love sleeping! But I love being able to “solve” so many problems without even thinking about them. For me, I’ve had a lot of success with the old wisdom of “just sleep on it”. I dream so many things that make sense in real life and I’m one of those people who has to sleep with a pen by the bed or I totally miss out on some great thoughts.

    I also believe in surrounding yourself with motivational things and people. In fact, a colleague once told me he always spends time with people better than he is so he can aspire and learn. I took that one to heart and it’s very true. Sometimes we’re afraid of being on the “low rung” of the ladder but I’d rather have the opportunity to be lifted up than dragged down. If I’m the dumbest one in the room, that’s even better 🙂 I can learn a lot and be motivated and inspired by everyone around me.

    There is a lot of power in our thoughts and our subconscious. We program ourselves without thinking about it or knowing it every day, so why not spend some time consciously programming in some good stuff?

      Hi Carol,

      I also need to have a pen and paper by my bed because I have tons of ideas when I wake up and they be gone even if I took the time to get up to reach for something to write.

      I agree, better surrounding ourselves with people smarter than we are than the other way around. As they say, you are making the same kind of salary than your five closest friends and that goes for everything else.

      Thanks for coming by 🙂

      that’s a great addiction to the article Carol
      thank you so much : )

  • Bob Clarke says:

    Love this! It’s always amazing to me how much more clear an issue becomes when I “sleep on it”. This is one thing I plan on really trying to harnass in the coming months — the power of my subconscious. I think its a HUGE advantage for anyone who can master it.

    Great read!

    • Sylviane Nuccio ~ Life Coach says:

      Hi Bob,

      Most definitely! I can’t even fathom that I’ve lived for so long without even being aware of the subconscious mind. It really changed my whole life when I did.

    • farouk says:

      the beauty of it is that you can use it while you are asleep
      thank you for the comment Bob 🙂

  • Jens Berget says:

    Awesome stuff. I don’t know much about the subconsious mind, but I know that when I go to sleep without solving a problem, for instance, if I go to sleep without publishing a blog post, I always wake up with a different solution.

    • Sylviane Nuccio ~ Life Coach says:

      Hi Jens,

      Sorry, your comment got lost in moderation land. But it’s fix now.

      The subconscious mind is everything we do and are, so the more we know about it, the better we turn out to be, because we simple control every aspect of our lives better. I don’t know how I lived before I was even aware of my subconscious mind.

      Thanks for passing by and hope you come again 🙂

  • Carolyn says:

    Great article, Farouk! I agree, the subconscious mind is very powerful and learning to harness it is very important. These suggestions are great. I know I process a lot when I sleep and often wake up inspired.

    I like your idea of imagery too. I know a lot of people who post a picture of a slim person on their refrigerator door when they go on a diet.

    I also like your positive media suggestion. I really enjoy quotes and inspirational blog posts.

    Thanks for having Farouk here, Sylviane!

    • Sylviane Nuccio ~ Life Coach says:

      Hi Carolyn,

      While Farouk as not got here yet, I will reply in the meantime.

      It is indeed so very important to harness our subconscious mind I can only wish I’d known this earlier in my life. However, I’m glad I did, eventually. Some people live and die without ever knowing that they could have changed so many things in their lives.

      Thanks for coming and have a great week end!

    • farouk says:

      thanks a lot for your comment
      yes the picture of a slim guy is a good example of how visualization can be used

  • Donna MerrillTwitter: donna_tribe says:

    The subconscious mind is one of my favorite subjects. This post was so exciting to read. What I do before I go to bed is to write down any “troubles” I may have in my mind. I used to use “trouble dolls” which came in a little box, but I find that writing down things is better for me.
    Then I use visualization. I start by relaxing my head to my feet with deep breathing. Then I take one thing that I want to accomplish or need to improve on and visualize it.
    Sometimes I can get that obscure answer in a dream, or sometimes it is just a feeling. But that is one of the things I do.
    While awake, I study NLP which is linking to the subconscious and give it positive affirmations in the here and now.
    Loved this topic and thanks for bringing it to people’s attention!

      Hi Donna,

      Thank you so much for sharing your success tips here. I think that everyone should do some kind of “resetting” before going to sleep, because our mind still keep working while we sleep.

      Every night before I go to bed I do EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) which is emotional acupuncture where you tap certain areas of your face and body with the tips of your fingers. I love EFT, it relieve all the bad energy. I use EFT along with positive affirmations for over 5 minutes every night, then I fall asleep with one of my self hypnosis sessions on my MP3 or sometimes my holosync sounds. Lot’s of good stuff for the subconscious and overall health of the mind.

      Thanks for sharing this, Donna and for coming by 🙂

    • farouk says:

      thank you so much Donna for your comment
      nice to meet you : )

  • AdrienneTwitter: adriennesmith40 says:

    I love this post Farouk, great to see you here at Sylviane’s place. So many wise tips you’ve shared with us today. All in just one post.

    I also remember the old saying to sleep on it but I also remember not to go to bed with lots of things on your mind. I guess if I can solve something before heading to bed I will but if not, I will just sleep on it.

    I think one of the problems I have is the visualizing things. If I don’t know what it looks like, I don’t have a big imagination. That’s much harder for me. Like if someone were to say visualize a banana then I can do that because I know what it looks like. If someone told me to visualize where I want to be in 5 years I wouldn’t know what that looks like so I wouldn’t be able to visualize it. That’s been a problem of mine for awhile now.

    The inspirational material really does help me because it’s not just a rah rah session. I can motivate myself but I need to be inspired.

    Great tips Farouk, thanks for sharing these. I’ll have to come back to this post and read it again.

      Hi Adrienne,

      While we are waiting for Farouk to reply to his comments, let me give my me two cents.

      I remember hearing on one of your videos that you have a hard time to visualize where you would be in 5 years, because you don’t know what it would looks like. Well, my advice is don’t set any mental blocks in your mind.

      By mental blocks, I mean that the REAL reason why you can’t see it, is that you have limiting beliefs that are preventing your to go wild and see yourself very wealthy, or living in a luxury house, or taking dream like vacations, or whatever that may be…

      Maybe you should answer questions like these:

      What kind of house do you want to have?
      What kind of things you want to do?
      What kind of people you want to meet?
      Where do you want to go?
      How do you want to live?
      What kind of car do you want to drive?
      What do you want to give and to whom?

      Answer questions like these, and if you need to, create a vision board. Vision boards really help. I use vision boards myself and I have incredible visualization habit. I know I will bring them bout, just like I told you I brought into my physical life that French actor I was crazy about…. and gosh, when it’s start it snow ball like crazy. very soon after him I attracted lots of actors in my physical reality including Harrison Ford and Tom Cruise on this side of the pond. All through visualization.

      So, try to answer questions and use a vision board see if it helps. I’m sure it will 🙂

    • farouk says:

      hey Adrienne
      happy to see you here as well
      i think this is a small problem, you can train your mind to visualize things better
      just keep doing it an your brain will develop the needed connections after some time
      keep in touch : )

  • Nicky says:

    Well I had no idea that I should be sleeping on my problem – I had heard that I should “ask the universe” for a solution and I guess that’s kind of the same thing.

    Before having my own business and doing lots of reading, I had no clue about the power of the mind and I feel so strongly that this sort of thing should be taught at school – I feel sure the world would be a much happier place.

    Loved this post Farouk – thanks so much for sharing Sylviane,
    Nicky

    • Sylviane Nuccio ~ Life Coach says:

      Hi Nicky,

      I couldn’t agree more with you. I think that the power of the subconscious mind should be taught in school, the only problem is that teachers are clueless about the power of the mind. Indeed, the world would be a better place if more people would only discover the power of their mind and how they can use it.

      Yes, sleeping on your problems or asking the universe for solutions is really the same thing. As I was telling in another comment above, I reset my mind and vibrations every night using EFT. I love EFT and have been using it for 5 years now.

      Thanks for coming by, Nicky 🙂

    The subconscious mind is the crew and the conscious mind is the Captain. Most of us are going through our day unconsciously. Real change can only begin by reprogramming the subconscious mind. That is why hypnosis works for so many.

    Check out my latest post. 🙂

    • Sylviane Nuccio ~ Life Coach says:

      Hi Justin,

      Thanks for coming here. I haven’t been at your place in a while, and yes, I will go check out your last post.

      I agree that hypnosis works wonders with the subconscious mind. I go to bed every night with my self hypnosis recordings. I love it 🙂 and it’s my most popular product sales too 🙂

      Thanks for passing by and hope to see you again soon 🙂

  • Harleena SinghTwitter: harleenas says:

    Nice post Farouk, and wonderful to see you here at Sylviane’s blog!

    I guess you really covered up a great deal about the subconcious mind, all in this post. 🙂

    I absolutly agree about sleeping over a problem as that does help a great deal, and something I think most of us here can relate to.

    However, most people would worry more and aren’t really able to sleep when they have problems on their mind. My dad is one such person! And he prefers to meditate, and then once he is calmer and feels better, he falls asleep quicker. Works differently for everyone I think.

    Similary, imagery or picturing yourself as something you are not or want to be also helps a great deal and gradually you start working towards it. I guess the Law of Attraction works wonders there, once you start working positively towards your goal.

    I think what works best is that you surround yourself and your thoughts with positive things and positve people. This attracts more posivite energies around you.

    Wonderful tips indeed, and thanks for sharing them. 🙂

    • Sylviane Nuccio ~ Life Coach says:

      Hello Harleena,

      I am like your father. For me if I have a problem I need to release it and then go to sleep with the conviction that my problem will be resolved. Whichever way works better for each one of us is what we should be doing.

      Thanks for coming dear, and have a great weekend.

  • Mica Young says:

    Great post! And I agree that there’s no better way to work everything out than getting enough sleep. It’s hard for me to control my emotions but I make sure that I think of everything first before making a move. It really helps. 🙂

    • Sylviane Nuccio ~ Life Coach says:

      Hi Mica,

      Controlling once’s emotion is really a matter of training oneself and an inside work. Meditation really helps with that.

      Thanks for coming and hope you will be back soon 🙂

  • farouk says:

    hi Sylviane
    i would finally like to thank you for giving me such an amazing opportunity : )

    • Sylviane Nuccio ~ Life Coach says:

      You welcome Farouk,

      The count is at 30 comments right now. Not bad at all, indeed. In the future if you want to write another post, your welcome to do so.

      Take care 🙂

  • Sanjay says:

    Hi I didn’t understand sleep on problem?how to sleep when u have problem?i cannot sleep? Can you please explain? Thanks.

    • Sylviane Nuccio ~ Life Coach says:

      Hi Sanjay,

      Sleeping on problem here doesn’t mean trying to sleep with your mind full of worries. As you know, this would actually prevent you from sleeping.

      Sleeping on problem, means falling a sleep with the assurance that the problem will find a solution over night. If you believe that strongly and fall asleep with this thought, more often than not the problem will find a solution over night.

      Hope this help. If you have any other question, please, ask.
