Emotions and the Subconscious

The subconscious uses two languages to communicate with our conscious mind:

1)      Pictures

2)      Emotions

When an event in your life is fused with an emotion, it gets put in the subconscious memory as a tagged file. This tagged file can then be recalled by the subconscious mind more easily and can produce behaviour or feelings based on the contents of the file.

For example, if as a child, you were bitten by a dog when you went to pat it, this would have caused an emotion of ‘fear’. If then, at a later time, you came across another dog, the subconscious mind may look in the file cabinet of the mind and when it reads the contents will know how it had emotionally handled the event previously (i.e. dog = fear) and likely default to the same emotion, unless it is over-ruled by the conscious mind. The more times the emotional reaction of ‘dog = fear’ is allowed to run, the more assured the subconscious mind is that it is ‘doing the right thing’ and more difficult it can be to consciously change that behavior.

This of course, works in a positive sense too. They say that “success breeds success”. Someone who has experienced a success (even a small one) and fused a positive emotion such as ‘joy’ or ‘ fulfillment’ to the event will find it easier to achieve the next bit of ‘success’ because the subconscious mind has just found a pathway to feeling ‘joy’ and/or ‘ fulfillment’. Behaviors begin to form subconsciously that will continue to perpetuate ‘success’ and thus reinforce the feeling.

Have you ever seen a grown adult suddenly act like a child when put under a stressful situation? This is a perfect example of this in action. When the conscious mind gets overloaded (which is amazingly easy to do) it defaults to the subconscious mind. The subconscious mind finds the tagged file and performs the default behaviour based on what they are currently feeling and the situation they are experiencing. Because the subconscious mind has no concept of time, this behaviour could have been running since they were a child. For some, this program has run so many times that they aren’t even consciously aware of their behaviour.

All business people and investors that have created long term success have always said the same basic thing. “You must control your emotions if you expect to control your money”. People who have been in the cycle of making lots of money through business or investing only to lose it, have had to take a very close and in-depth look at their emotional files to break out of their cycle. These people always need a mentor or coach to help them see outside themselves and get a different perspective of what is really going on inside them.

If you’re not where you want to be financially, it may be that you just aren’t aware of tools that will help you become successful. But, if you are aware of such tools and you STILL aren’t where you want to be, then it is very likely that you have subconscious behaviors tied to emotions that are actually working against you!

Hypnotherapy is one of the BEST tools available to work with the subconscious mind and change the behaviors that are keeping you from becoming successful. Why continue to run the same old patterns and behaviour when you can create new ones that will work with you. The amazing part is, that it will seem almost like magic, because it is happening subconsciously (i.e. under the radar of the conscious mind). Suddenly things will begin to happen for you that never happened before. Beneficial people and opportunities will just appear… all because the subconscious behaviors have changed. When this happens, you know you’re on your way to creating a ‘Wealth Mindset’.
