The Subliminal Key

You’ve heard it before, and most likely experienced it in your own life: you set a goal and are 100% dedicated to achieving that goal. As time passes though, you realize that things aren’t going your way, circumstances change your plans and-the goal is never reached.

Why is this? Isn’t the standard protocol to write down your goals, read them every morning and night and the universe will start to present the circumstances that will facilitate those goals? Yes, that is the protocol, but there is another component in addition to the nuts and bolts of goal setting: the programming of the subconscious mind.

Let’s use an example of a goal, such as losing weight. You have your goal, you know your target weight, you even have a deadline for the attainment of that target weight. You do all the “right” things, but instead of everything going to plan, you end up losing very little, or maybe no weight at all. The problem may lie within your subconscious mind. If you see yourself as overweight, if that’s the picture you have in your mind’s eye, then that’s what you will get. In fact, you may not even realize consciously that you are sabotaging yourself.

It’s hard to tell exactly what is in your subconscious, but what you see in your life will give you a good idea. So if your goal is to lose weight and you can’t seem to find success, you will have to reprogram your mind to actually believe you can lose weight and be the svelte person you, at least consciously want to be. I say consciously, because there may be events from the past that will cause you to fail consciously. On the other hand those same mind-altering events that cause you to fail on the outside may be considered a success to your subconscious mind.

For example, I had a friend several years ago who always carried around a little extra weight. He had indicated that he did want to lose weight, but was never able to knock off those extra pounds. Now this guy was a big wrestling fan, and listening to some of this comments about the various wrestlers back then caused me to think about why he was carrying around the extra weight. I didn’t think about it then, but his references to the smaller wrestlers as “twirps” and “stick men” now makes me think that he felt “smaller” (ie. not as big) men were actually less manly than the big boys. He also told me about a fight he got into when he was a teenager. This was long before I met him. A big dude beat him, and beat him badly. He made reference to how much “bigger” the guy was several times. He also mentioned that he was a “skinny” guy back in those days (I don’t know what skinny meant to him, but clearly meant less weight than what he was currently carrying), and he could “handle himself” now.

Those were the days when I didn’t know much about the subconscious mind, and I don’t know if my friend ever resolved his weight problem. But thinking back now, it appears that past events may have had a role in his inability to lose weight. With that belly, now he was the big guy, and that more than likely traumatic beating he took as a teenager wasn’t going to happen again.

I can now think back and say that he needed to reprogram his subconscious mind, and carrying around that extra weight didn’t necessarily make him tougher or more intimidating. In fact, there are some very trim guys that could be considered bad to the bone. I lost contact with my friend, but I learned something from him. If you examine why your conditions are the way they are, you may have the programming key that will enable you to finally reach those goals. This was just one example. It could get complicated, but on the other hand, it’s your life. Do you have something else to attend to?
