The Art of Shifting Your Reality:
4 Deep Practices for Clearing Emotional Blockages and Harnessing the Power of Your Subconscious Mind
BY JOSEPH DRUMHELLER
Joy, happiness, excitement, passion, purpose, meaning, peace, contentment, fulfillment, abundance, freedom, etc. How many of us get to experience these words, let alone live them out on a daily basis? Not nearly enough. The adventure we’re about to embark on will lead into the realm of these words. It’s the sole reason for taking up a spiritual path: to increase the quality of life. Try to keep that in mind.A friend of mine once told me, “There are two kinds of people in this world, those who say ‘I can’ and those who say ‘I can’t.’ And ya know what? They’re both right.” The events in our lives are outward projections of what’s lurking in our subconscious mind. That includes our thoughts, feelings, perceptions, and beliefs. We are who we think, feel, and believe we are. That goes for the good and the bad. If that’s so, can we intentionally put thoughts, feelings, perceptions, and beliefs into the subconscious mind to create our future? The answer is: You bet! It’s called manifesting. “Whoever you think you are as person and however you think the world operates will be reflected back to you in the events of your life.” Manifesting is simply utilizing the creative force of the subconscious mind by directing into the future. Anything is possible! The only limitation is what you can imagine. It’s like applying a powerful subconscious healing technique to the future. It can be applied to almost anything: healing, sports, technical skills, physical abilities, relationships, finances, health, etc. Roadblocks to manifesting show up as resistance and/or subconscious emotional charges. You’ll need to use subconscious healing and reprogramming techniques outlined later in this article to get rid of those.And that’s why I’m here. I’m here to guide you through the process and help you avoid bumps along the way. The effort you put in will produce noticeable results in your daily life. It will also influence the lives of everyone you come in contact with. So if you’re interested in making your life and the world a better place, then by all means, please join me.The Conscious Mind—Noise, Noise, Noise!Each and every one of us on planet Earth walks around in this little bubble called the human mind. On the outer layer of the bubble is the conscious mind, a very important and influential part of our existence that differentiates us from animals. It’s our “awake” state of mind, the state where we spend the majority of our waking hours. It’s the home of our cognitive and rational thinking process and our ability to organize and categorize. Much of our society is steeped in the conscious mind, including science and modern medicine.The following list is borrowed from Yvonne Oswald’s book, Every Word Has Power, detailing features of the conscious mind. The conscious mind:
1. Is aware of what it perceives.
2. Contacts reality through the five senses.
3. Gathers and sorts information.
4. Communicates to the Divine through the subconscious.
5. Thinks deductively.
6. Makes choices and judgments.
7. Reviews information and draws conclusions.
8. Makes generalizations.
9. Likes to analyze and categorize.
10. Requests information from the subconscious.
The conscious mind is an incredible thinking machine. It just doesn’t stop. My favorite description of the mind’s activity is written by Eckhart Tolle in A New Earth: “Thinking isn’t something you do; thinking is something that happens to you.” Many of these thoughts are unfocused noise and chatter. Mind chatter can range from mildly annoying to downright debilitating. There are numerous self-help books out there that encourage us to train ourselves to think positively. However, due to the sheer volume of thought we have, our control over the human mind and our mental chatter is fairly limited.Free Enlightened Living Course: Take Your Happiness, Health, Prosperity & Consciousness to the Next LevelDiscover powerful insights and techniques for creating radiant health, happiness, prosperity, peace and flow in your life and relationships. Simply recognizing mental chatter and the effect it has on your life is the first step in learning to dissipate its power. If the chatter is excessively noisy, there is likely a strong underlying emotional charge generating it from the subconscious mind.The Subconscious MindUnderlying the conscious mind in the human mind bubble is the subconscious mind. By definition, we are not normally aware of this aspect of our being (sub means under). While we are busy going about our day, deeply engrossed in the conscious mind, the subconscious mind lies quietly beneath the surface. It’s the home of the nonphysical realms of the human experience. Some aspects include our dreams, emotions, ideas, and imagination….
