Your subconscious or unconscious mind, for want of a better term, is the one that controls all your basic bodily functions. If your conscious mind were to do that then it would go into overload or it might just forget.
That would be a sad state if affairs if you forgot to tell your heart to beat or lungs to breathe.
We all have an auto pilot which is programmed to run our bodies and keep our lives in our chosen direction. Now this is the interesting part. Many of us believe in fate but is it really fate or is it just your subconscious running your basic program?
When a pilot gets into a plane he programs the autopilot with certain data and the plane will follow those instructions. There is no way you will fly to Japan if the pilot put in data to fly the plane to Jamaica.
Your life is very similar.
Your conscious mind is the pilot as it is the one who determines where to go but often you have programmed your subconscious mind, your auto pilot, with data that you have not erased. This data could be in the form of experiences, memories, habits, beliefs that you’ve added over the years. For example, you may think that you are stupid because you were told at school that you were slow. That may have been a fact at that time as you did not understand the information or perhaps your teacher was not very good at teaching. You then believed this ‘fact’ and your auto pilot made sure that it reinforced this ‘fact’ as it is what you believe.
Unfortunately you are the one who has the wrong data programmed into your auto pilot and no matter what you do in life, you will stay on the ‘stupid’ course until you erase that data or reprogram your auto pilot. No matter how many courses you attend, self help books you read, psychologist appointments you make, you will never change as long as your subconscious data remains the same.
This fact lies at the foundation of all your successes and failures. You are the only person who can reprogram yourself and set your auto pilot on the course you want to follow. You are the only one who thinks your thoughts and who is in complete control of your thoughts.
The trick is to be able to think what you want and not what you have.
If your life is less than desirable and not what you really wanted then the bitter pill you have to swallow is that you are responsible. Your life is a result of your thoughts, the choices you made and the actions you took.
Take a look at your beliefs, opinions and outlook on life and ask yourself if they’re really true according to the knowledge you now have. If not then isn’t it time that you changed your course by resetting your auto pilot?
Our subconscious minds have no sense of humor, play no jokes and cannot tell the difference between reality and an imagined thought or image. What we continually think about eventually will manifest in our lives. ~Robert Collier
