We’ve all heard about the unconscious mind, but did you know that most of your behavioral and thought patterns are directed by it?
Research reveals that 95% or more of your behavior is controlled by the unconscious mind. Your conscious mind processes only 7 bits per second.
While your unconscious processes a whopping 11 million bits of information per second!
The unconscious mind is very literal and habitual and is where your long-term memory, attitudes, values, and beliefs are stored. Because of it’s enormous processing capacity, the unconscious mind plays a huge role in the direction of your life.
Where Do Beliefs Come From?
According to Dr. Bruce Lipton, PhD, cellular biologist and author of “The Biology of Belief”, most of our beliefs are in place by the time we are 5 or 6 years of age.
Our beliefs come from interactions with our parents and the people around us during childhood, our religion, community, or any traumatic event. They become core components of how we see ourselves, other people, and the world.
If you set out to achieve a goal, and hold unconscious beliefs that are in conflict with that goal, your unconscious mind will try and find a way to sabotage your success.
The fact is, we spend most of our time unconsciously reacting to life rather than consciously creating it. Our lives end up on autopilot!
Limiting beliefs that are embedded in the unconscious mind can frequently affect your personal prosperity and career growth.
Unconscious limiting beliefs can take the shape as, “Money is the root of all evil” or, “It’s not okay for me to have money” or, “I don’t deserve to have lots of money” and can be reasons why you are not meeting your financial or career goals.
Do you feel guilty about wanting or having money? Do you unconsciously hold the belief that making money is hard?
Stop for a moment and think back to your childhood. What kind of relationship did your family have with money? How did they manage it?
If you spend it as fast as or faster than you make it, or make one bad investment decision after another, it’s very likely that you have self-limiting unconscious beliefs about money.
Your self-esteem, or how you view yourself, deeply influences how others see you.
If your self-esteem is high, people will like and trust you. If you see yourself as unworthy or of low value, others are less likely to trust and have confidence in you.
After all, you teach the world how to treat you by the unconscious beliefs you hold about yourself.
Your Beliefs Create Your Reality
Imagine that your unconscious mind is like the hard drive on your computer. It stores all the data that your family, society, culture and experiences programmed into it, including all beliefs, opinions, doubts and fears.
Imagine that your computer screen is the reality of your life. Where does the information on the screen come from? It comes from your hard drive, right?
It follows then, that your reality or the life you are experiencing now is actually a reflection of the beliefs in your unconscious mind.
Old Mindsets and Beliefs
Have you ever changed from one job to another but realize that you are experiencing the same problems everywhere you go?
What about your relationships? Do you notice old problems or similar patterns despite different partners over time?
Instead of changing your external circumstances, maybe it’s time you re-formatted your belief hard drive.
Look at Your Reality
Your reality is the mirror of your life. It reflects your inner unconscious beliefs. It is merely a projection of your unconscious mind.
It’s not what you think you believe that creates your reality. It is what your unconscious mind believes.
When you clean the unconscious mind of limiting beliefs, fears, doubts and conditioned tendencies, you are free to see the world with new eyes.
When your unconscious beliefs change, you will be attracted to new people, new jobs and a new reality.
You may have heard the quote, “You don’t see things as they are, you see things as you are.”
Know that everything that you attract on the outside of yourself is a reflection of what’s on the inside.
You Are A Movie Projector
You are like a walking movie projector! Whatever anyone says on the outside isn’t really from them, it’s actually a projection of your own beliefs.
If you don’t like what you see being played out around you – family – business – relationships – begin by looking at your beliefs.
Ask yourself: “What do I believe about this particular person or situation?”
New View New You
Imagine the life of a gold fish. The fish knows his reality to be water in a tank. He knows nothing else – unless someone drops him into a new tank.
Most people look out through their eyes and see the world through their beliefs. They don’t realize that what they’re perceiving is a belief-driven reality.
When you do things on your own, you are working within your own belief system. It’s hard to see your own beliefs and how you create your realities because you are in your reality.
Turbo Charge your Life – Get a Coach!
A coach listens to you from an objective viewpoint and reflects back your language and beliefs. A coach expands your view and drops you into a new reality.
As you clear your mind of old mindsets and beliefs, you begin to heal yourself. As you heal yourself – you heal others.
As you clear away projections of what you want or expect, or what you intend or believe, you will be free to see the miracle of the present moment. Or, what I call, the Clarity Mind State.
What unconscious beliefs do you hold within your unconsciuos mind? How are they affecting your reality?
