Understanding the Power of the Subconscious Mind
By Bill Williams

We are creatures of habit. It takes approximately 28 days of doing something repetitiously, day after day, to be implanted in your subconscious mind. If you remember when you were learning to read, write, and recite your ABCs it was done through repetition until it was accepted by the subconscious mind. Hypnosis is a tool we use to harness the power we have to reprogram our subconscious mind to eliminate bad habits, sickness, phobias to name just a few.

When man first became aware of a horse he looked and said, “The horse is as strong as twenty men, but he is not as smart as me.” So man harnessed the horse and made it work for him. You can do the same with your subconscious mind. Just as Nicola Tesla harnessed electricity to change the course of modern history, so can we begin to discover and control the great power of our subconscious mind and make it work for us.

It is important to always remember and be aware of what you say. Your subconscious has a big ear and is listening all the time. It accepts whatever you say as literal and will begin to fulfill your commands, both good and bad. Unfortunately many people unknowingly do more harm then good to themselves because they do not understand how the subconscious mind works. Anyone can learn, all that it takes is an interest to make change in your life.

To understand the subconscious, one must understand how it works in relation to the conscious mind. The conscious mind essentially makes decisions as to what information will enter the subconscious mind. It acts as a guard since the subconscious mind does not know the difference between right and wrong, it just accepts what the conscious mind lets through. If you think consciously you are fat, not liked and so on and give this information to your subconscious mind it will do everything in its power to achieve your desire or directives. So you have to be very careful of what you think or what your say. Always end a negative with a positive affirmation. Instead of saying something such as “I am fat. I will never lose this weight.” You should say, “I am overweight, but I will begin my diet tomorrow, start losing weight and begin to feel better about myself.”

Hypnotherapist Bill Williams can help you harness the power of your subconscious mind through his CDs, tapes and personal sessions.
