4 Ways to Unlock the Power of your Subconscious Mind

“Whatever we plant in our subconscious mind and nourish with repetition and emotion will one day become a reality.” ~ Earl Nightingale

The subconscious mind is the store room with an unlimited capacity; all your memories, experiences, the deepest beliefs, everything that has ever happened to you is permanently stored.

In simple terms, the subconscious is a part of you that is outside your conscious awareness, that creates automatic programs to make functioning easier in life, without having to pay attention to everything you are doing.

The tip of the iceberg represents the conscious mind and the part underwater represents our unconscious

Like driving a car, a beginner who is still learning to drive would be completely focused on driving, without engaging in a conversation with anybody in the car. But after few weeks or months of practice, that person would be at ease while driving, since it’s become a habit and is registered in the subconscious mind.

The subconscious is active all day and night, whether you act upon it or not. Controlling all functions of your body like breathing, heart beat and even our nervous system.

Neuroscience has recognized that the subconscious controls 95 percent of our lives. The first six years of your life is when the subconscious mind is programmed, and it is much more powerful than your conscious mind.

Its job is to ensure that you respond exactly the way you are programmed. Your subconscious mind makes everything you say and do fit a pattern consistent with your self-concept, your “master program.” That’s why it’s important that you filter what is embedded in it.

If the subconscious mind is so powerful, how does one reprogram our conditioned thinking to make positive changes in one’s life? Your thoughts have the power to create your reality.

Breaking Down Neural Pathways using Positive Affirmations


To change our lives, we need to do more than just change our thoughts, we have to go deeper than that and change our programming.

To program your subconscious mind, with the present “conscious” understanding that you’ve gained, takes time, because it involves bringing down the old neural pathways and creating new connections in your brain.

But the good thing is that the subconscious learns through repetition, that’s how it picked up the negative patterns or bad habits in the first place. By spending time each day affirming your new beliefs/programming or thought pattern, you can effectively change your life and reality.

Take time every day, sowing the seeds of your new programming. Repeating mantras or positive affirmations have the power to raise your vibrations and make a lasting impression in your subconscious mind.

According to Paramahansa Yogananda, “Loud or silent repetition of inspiring words has been found effective in various systems of psychotherapy; the secret lies in stepping up the mind’s vibratory rate.”

Affirmations to consider –

-“I love and respect myself.”
– “I am filled with peace, harmony and joy.”
– “I attract good things into my life.”
– “My positive thoughts produce positive things.”

It’s not just repeating the same thing again and again, you have to break the barrier that prevents certain thoughts from entering the subconscious mind. If you feed positive thoughts to your brain continuously, it will enter your subconscious mind.

Feed only what you desire and not what you don’t want. In the process if you experience negative thoughts, sadness, anxiety, frustration etc., don’t try to resist those thoughts but acknowledge them and accept them in your conscious mind, and it will eventually fade away.


Meditation takes you to deeper realms of consciousness, that allows you to access your subconscious mind. In normal waking consciousness, our brain is functioning in ‘beta’ pattern. This state is associated with alertness, but also with stress, anger and anxiety. In meditation, your brain patterns slow down and move first to alpha and then to theta and, in deep meditation, delta patterns.
It sounds difficult at first, but with regular practice, you will become an observer of your thoughts, instead of getting distracted by it. Allow your thoughts to flow and not react to them. This is when you begin to reap the benefits of accessing your subconscious mind through meditation.

Get Creative

Let your creative juices flow, take up artistic expressions like painting, drawing, cooking, decorating, sculpting, pottery and so on. Nurturing your creativity can help you be more authentic and in closer touch with your subconscious self.

Follow your Instincts

“Your visions will become clear only when you can look into your own heart. Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes.” ~ C.G. Jung

Intuition is the connecting path between the subconscious and conscious mind. Your subconscious mind, applicably, converses with the conscious mind all the time. This is the inner voice, or “gut feeling”, which you must listen to. Positive people have been reported to have a stronger sense of intuition.

There are other ways to unlock the power of the subconscious mind – clinical hypnotherapy, energy psychology and even brainwave entertainment – is effective. Once you start living in harmony with your inner self and your subconscious state, your life will transform!
