It’s probably no surprise to you that our minds are complex machines, and the subconscious is a silent yet powerful force shaping our daily experiences. This often overlooked aspect of our psyche shapes our thoughts, emotions, and behaviors, and it holds a huge influence on the trajectory of our lives. Embedded within the subconscious are the beliefs we’ve internalized over the years, most of which were created during our formative stages of development.

Understanding How Our Minds Work

To comprehend the significance of these beliefs, it’s helpful to first take a look at the inner workings of the subconscious mind. Unlike its conscious counterpart, which operates in the realm of rationality and logic, the subconscious functions on a deeper, more instinctual level. It operates as a repository of our past experiences, storing memories, emotions, and beliefs that shape our perceptions of ourselves and the world around us.

From the time we’re born untiil the age of 7, when our minds are most impressionable, we absorb information like sponges, assimilating the attitudes, values, and beliefs of our caregivers and environment. According to Dr. Bruce Lipton, our brains are in Theta state during those years. This brainwave state allows the mind access to the deepest part of the subconscious, and that’s where a lot of our beliefs are stored. These subconscious beliefs, often ingrained through repeated exposure and reinforcement, form the lens through which we interpret our experiences and navigate our lives.

The Power of Finding Balance

Achieving harmony between our conscious intentions and subconscious beliefs is paramount for personal growth and fulfillment. When our conscious desires align with our deeply-held beliefs, we experience a sense of coherence and purpose, enabling us to pursue our goals with clarity and conviction. However, when there’s a disconnect between the two, it can lead to internal conflict and feelings of dissonance.

If the brain believes something, it’s always going to seek ways to prove that it’s true. This goes for conscious and concrete realities as well as for subconscious beliefs. So, if the brain has an unproductive subconscious belief, it’s going to constantly look for confirmation that it’s true…even if it isn’t! For example, if we grew up in a household where we were told that “money doesn’t grow on trees” and that money is really hard to get, we have that as our subconscious belief surrounding money. So, in our daily lives, we only experience situations where money is hard to get! This creates a cycle of behavior that it’s easy to get stuck in!

Overcoming Limiting Beliefs

By consciously reframing our interpretations of past experiences and affirming positive beliefs about ourselves, we can begin to dismantle the barriers that hinder our growth and potential. But repeating affirmations and going through our conscious mind to reach the subconscious takes a really long time, and it’s not always effective. After all, if it were that easy, we could all just “think our way” into positive behavior patterns!
