The Importance of Owning your Personal Power – Part 2
There is a basic psychological or metaphysical law that states that it takes twenty-one days to cement a new habit into the subconscious mind. You can learn something in a day, but to make a habit in the subconscious mind takes twenty-one days. This ability by the subconscious mind of storing habits allows us to grow continually and develop new abilities without worrying about old ones.
The subconscious mind is where the Law of Magnetism and Attraction operates. The subconscious mind is continually attracting and repelling things to and from us according to what has been programmed into it. A master is someone who uses this law to his own conscious benefit.
Lets take the example of money and prosperity. If you have the belief in your subconscious mind that you will never have money, you won’t. If, on the other hand, you think you will, the subconscious mind will attract those opportunities and possibilities to you. Whatever you want in life, all you have to do is affirm or visualize this into the subconscious mind, and the subconscious mind will attract and magnetize it to you.
Carl Jung spoke of this when he talked about the collective unconscious. The subconscious mind is interconnected with all other subconscious minds. You might say that all the sons and daughters of God have one great subconscious mind.
The subconscious mind also has the ability to sense radiations of energy. We all automatically use this ability in our daily lives. This ability can be specifically used in areas such as water dowsing, or water witching. The subconscious can be programmed to search for any physical substance, not just water. It can sense the radiation of energy of any substance for which it is programmed to search.
The subconscious mind is also the seat of our psychic abilities. The subconscious has five inner senses that are the subtler counterparts of our five external senses: Inner sight (clairvoyance), inner hearing (clairaudience), inner smell, inner taste, and inner touch.
Have you ever noticed that when you dream you have your five senses available to you? How can this be if you are sleeping? This is because you are utilizing your five inner senses of the subconscious mind. All people have psychic abilities and can develop them further. It is just a matter of practice and proper training as with any external ability.
How the Conscious Mind Works in Relationship to the Subconscious Mind
The key function of the conscious mind is to be the computer programmer, protector and master of the subconscious mind. The subconscious mind is meant to be the servant or servomechanism of the conscious mind. Most people, not understanding these psychological laws, let their subconscious mind run them. When this happens, people become victims and start having a lot of problems.
The subconscious mind was never meant to direct your life. It will run you into oblivion if you let it, not because it is bad, but because it has no reasoning. In and of itself it is divine. Why would you let a non reasoning mind run your life? Strangely enough, this is what most people do.
The ideal is that every time a thought, feeling, or impulse arises out of the subconscious mind, it should be checked or rationalized. You might imagine an inner gate or inner bubble that protects you from your own subconscious mind. When a thought or feeling or impulse arises, it is the job of the conscious mind to use its powers of reasoning, discernment and discrimination to check that thought at the gate. If the thought or impulse is positive and spiritual, you let it into your mind. If it is negative, you push it out.
Psychological health is the process of letting into your mind positive spiritual balanced thoughts. Psychological health is like physical health. If you want to be physically healthy you put good healthful food into your body. If you want to be psychologically healthy you put good healthful thoughts into your mind.
By pushing the negative thoughts out of your mind, you are refusing them energy. This is much like a plant that is not being watered. It eventually withers and dies from lack of water (attention and focus). The second step is to affirm the opposite positive thought or spiritual thought. This is called positive thinking and the use of positive affirmations.
By continually disregarding the negative thought and affirming the positive thought, a new habit is formed in the subconscious mind. The old habit dies because you are not giving it energy; and the new habit is formed because you are continually affirming and thinking positively. Within twenty one days a new habit can be formed.
You must remember that the subconscious is filled with all these old tapes that your parents and other people programmed into you when you were young. If the conscious mind isn’t making choices, then all this old program-ming from early childhood is programming your present life. Development of the Outer Bubble or Shield to Protect You From Other People’s Negative Energy
Just as it is essential to develop an inner bubble to protect you from your own subconscious mind, it is also essential to develop an outer bubble or shield to protect you from other people’s negative energy. The ideal, as I have already mentioned, is for you to be the computer programmer of your subcon-scious mind.
