How to Hack Your Subconscious Mind

Most of us have heard about the subconscious mind, however, most don’t have a clear idea of what it really is and how to best utilize our subconscious mind to our advantage.

What Is the Subconscious Mind

The subconscious mind is, as its name suggests, a part of the brain that you may not be aware of while you are awake. When you are asleep, however, the subconscious mind becomes more active than ever. It actively runs through what happened in the previous day and stores data into the permanent memory.

How to Hack Your Subconscious Mind

There is a simple tip you can implement today to start making your subconscious mind work for you. First, here’s a fact: Your subconscious mind cannot distinguish between negative thoughts and positive ones. Whatever you feed into the subconscious mind will be used by it to form automatic thought patterns that determine your view of the world.

Now, here’s the trick to hack the subconscious mind: Right before falling asleep, think about something that you would like the subconscious mind to work on. Surely, you don’t want to dwell on sad memories or else your subconscious will work on that and god knows what more of it you will get in the morning.

Make your subconscious mind work for you by deliberately thinking about good memories and things you want to achieve or solve right before falling asleep. The power of the subconscious is unlimited. Even when you feel hopeless and clueless during the day, the subconscious has ways of tapping into the infinite intelligence which will provide a solution to your problem. When you wake up in the morning, you’ll come up with ideas that you never thought about before the previous day.
