It Works Like This

“If you consider yourself bound, you are bound.
If you consider yourself liberated, you are liberated.
Things outside neither bind nor liberate you,
only your attitude towards them does that.”
- Patanjali, The Yoga Sutras

You know the right things to do - be grateful, avoid sugar, eat veggies, don't take things personally, get plenty of sleep, exercise and yoga.

But you don't always do them.

You know what you need to do, you know what you want, but you just don’t do it. I get it.

There is a huge difference between knowing and doing. Sometimes you get an inspiration, idea, make a plan, decide to implement the plan, but then don’t follow through. This is crazy. Frustrating. You feel stuck. And sometimes defeated and depressed.

When you're struggling with yourself and trying really hard but aren’t getting the results that you're looking for, look deeper.

BEGIN WITH THE BELIEF

When you know what to do and don’t do it there is misfire between your conscious mind and subconscious mind.

Your subconscious mind has another deeper and hidden agenda, and it is sabotaging your intentions.

The subconscious mind is comprised of neural pathways that have been established in your brain as a result of your past beliefs and conditioning.

Limiting beliefs, negative conditioning and misguided perceptions that you took to be true caused strong patterns of thought to become subconscious. Maybe from childhood.

These pathways are real and as strong as ropes that can hold you where you no longer want to be.

These are HISTORY. That was then, this is now. They need to go. Forge a new brain path.

Get busy cleaning and rerouting your subconscious.

IT CAN BE SIMPLE

Look at some area of your life where you’re not getting results you want. Why do you want what you want? What is your motive? Question yourself until you get down to the raw honest root of it.

Ask, "Why do I want this?" Do it now. Answer, then question your answer. Why do I want that? Then ask why again. Be like a persistent 2 year old until you get to the root.

You might discover you are being driven by an irrational, limiting belief or fear.

Then ask yourself what would be the opposite of what you are getting now. BE VERY SPECIFIC. What would it be like? Feel like? Look like?

Take some time to dream now.

Who would you need to be to have that? What are you willing to let go of?

Let’s say you want to stop questioning yourself. You would need to be confident, right? You would need to let go of perfection and the fear of being wrong.

Or you want to eat a healthier diet. You would need self control. You might need to let go of a need to self soothe with food.

 Formulate a simple “I am statement” of what you want, such as:

"I am making the best choice and I'm believing in myself."

Or to lose weight you might write:

"I am choosing food wisely and shedding weight."

Focus your mind on the results you want. You must put your attention
on the right attitude to rewrite the "code" in your subconscious and get the results you desire.

Who do you need to be? Get very clear and specific. The more positive and detailed, the better.
Brand your statement into your subconscious mind.

Memorize your “I am” statement and repeat it daily. Run it constantly through your mind. Feel it, breathe it. Write it out 100 times, put a post it note on your dashboard and bathroom mirror. If you are serious about getting real change in your life by working with your subconscious mind - do this.

Notice every time you act in accordance with your new belief. Congratulate yourself! Make a big deal of it. WIN! WIN!

Stay in relaxed awareness of what is happening as you continue to practice this. You are retraining your brain.

Real change IS possible, but it can take some time. Be patient and be persistent. Change your thoughts, change your life.
