Law of Attraction Subconscious Mind Power
The subconscious mind is the horse the conscious mind is the rider The horse agrees and complies wit
Sounds simple, doesn't it Well, it is simple. Not easy, but simple. If the horse is used to turning left, it isn't going to turn right unless you pull the reins HARD at the proper place and do it the same way day after day. Anything the horse perceives as different it automatically treats as wrong. The rider (your conscious mind) is a slave to the horse (your subconscious mind) until you provide a new route for it to follow.
Do you see what's been happening As you do the diet-hopping-thing, you have already pre-programmed your mind into failure mode. Oh, I failed at so-and-so diet, I'm going to fail at this one, too. But, hey, why not give it a try anyway Okay, that didn't work, on to the next one, even though THAT won't work, and so on.
Our self-image begins with others' opinions about us. Our awareness of these opinions forms our self-worth - our subconscious mind's basic program. We then confirm this program by acting in accordance with it. Changing the programming of your subconscious mind, your goal-striving mechanism, is no more complicated than that.
When you're in an environment that has only been a haven for negative emotions and feelings of failure, your subconscious mind feeds on that. Remember, your subconscious mind is the perfect yes-man. Get up, and GET OUT. Go for a walk. A drive. Rent a movie. Go work out (highly recommended), or whatever. Just get away from it. The purpose is to jolt your mind that this failure situation does NOT reach everywhere.
You DO have control over what enters your subconscious mind. Whether you're exercising that control or not is another subject. EVERYTHING originates as an idea. We are forever moving in thought. An idea will enter your conscious mind first. You either accept it or not accept the idea in any case, your thought then enters your subconscious mind. Your subconscious takes everything at face value it neither accepts nor rejects. You subconscious feeling then moves your body into action. Let's recap. Your conscious mind filters everything before it goes to the subconscious mind. Then your body moves accordingly.
You wait until you get there, you'll never get there. What you're doing is enhancing the re-programming of your subconscious mind so you achieve success more rapidly. Eat, sleep and drink success. What you're doing is telling your conscious mind, No, not that way. THIS way. It then eliminates the negative baloney, and your sub-conscious, being the yes-man, is in total agreement. Your body, being an instrument of your mind, then acts upon the ideas your sub-conscious gives it.
You have an internal guidance system (your self-image in your subconscious mind) that IS a goal-striving mechanism. If you have a clear and specific image of where you want to go, how you want to look and feel, and follow your action plan for getting there, you are in total control of your thoughts, feelings, and actions.
There is a direct relationship between what you strive for and what you actually achieve. If you consciously establish a set temperature with your internal thermostat, you will automatically adjust toward that set point. If you have no clear and specific goal - your definition of success - impressed upon your subconscious mind, that is your set point.
IT'S SOMEONE ELSE'S - your parents' most likely. Yet your subconscious mind is heading straight down the I CAN'T path. Many of us didn't have very good role modeling when it came to setting goals. Your early childhood scripting may have programmed in a lot of negative feelings and assumptions. And your subconscious mind has been agreeing and complying with them ever since.
Say to yourself right now, I don't believe in defeat. Repeat it often, every day, until it is firmly planted in your subconscious mind. You'll develop a powerful faith and belief in yourself. You'll learn to know yourself, your own ability, and your power to do things. Second, when the dynamite-body game seems to go against you - plateaus, overeating, no exercise, inconsistencies, etc. - do NOT let discouragement creep in or negative thoughts pollute your mind and then lose the power needed to succeed.
One of the most powerful techniques for success is to visualize yourself having the health, energy, youthfulness, and physique you want - IN THE PRESENT TENSE. Your body is only an instrument of your mind. Your conscious mind (your thoughts) feeds your subconscious mind (feelings), which then moves your body into action. Your subconscious knows only the present, so keep your vision of success in the now.
List all people ideas and things that are holding you back from building the body and living the lif
What Who is stopping you from getting started (and going, for good) with your mind body-shaping program List them. ALL of them. What's happening in this exercise is that it is increasing your awareness of them. Don't worry about 9. Re-program yourself to take charge of your mind and body. You act in direct relation to your self-image, WHETHER IT IS REAL OR NOT. Your body is merely an instrument of your mind, so if you tell yourself you can't, your self-image says, Okay, I'll arrange for that. People who have trouble getting started again are operating in logical mode your mind is telling you why you can't do this. AND YOU'RE LETTING IT CONTROL YOU. Feed your mind daily with a healthy dose of positive self-growth statements like, I work out daily, and I enjoy it. I love how exercise makes me feel. I look forward to working out. I enjoy eating healthy foods. I am a lean, mean, health machine. See what I mean With regular practice, your body will automatically move in the direction you...
You want to improve your body and health, I know that. And, yes, it takes a decision of conviction and commitment to be successful. But there's no gray area here. You either want to do it, or you don't. If you keep griping about how you can't, well, then, it isn't going to happen. Simple as that. You have preprogrammed your mind into hating exercise. So you need to un-program it. You have to re-program your mind with positive self-talk. See yourself already with a leaner, energized, fantastic body. See yourself walking tall. Unstoppable. Think of how exercise makes you feel GREAT, the high you get when you're really into it. Think of how less stressed you feel after busting your butt. The magic is in your MIND. No pill, powder, or formula is going to do the trick. IT IS TOTALLY, COMPLETELY, ABSOLUTELY UP TO YOU. If someone else can lose 100 lb. permanently, WHY THE H*** CAN'T YOU
When hunger strikes, you're already undoubtedly thinking of food, so why not put in concrete terms Turn to the table of calories on page 301 and look up the foods you're tempted to wolf down. Think about their calories compared to the calorie deficit in your meal plan, and work out, in your mind, how much longer your diet will run if you add such a food every day. Rather than increasing your focus on food, that may let you balance the food you're craving in a purely numerical way against the forecast length of your diet and the knowledge that once the diet is done your weight problem will be solved and you'll never have to endure hunger like this again.
How much longer are you going to let OTHERS control how you think Isn't it what YOU think of YOURSELF that matters So you're overweight. You're doing something about it, right And, do you know how to read peoples' minds Okay, you're not eating desserts. You don't have to justify to ANYBODY what you're doing. You're doing this for yourself, so your mind, body, and life benefit. YOU ARE IN CONTROL.
This is a real test of iron-discipline. However it's not doing it once that counts. Its the 10th, 20th, etc. time when your body knows the shock that's coming and your mind tries to make excuses but you shut that out, visualize yourself as a Spartan Warrior and turn the tap
Building a leaner, energized, shapely body is not an event it's a PROCESS. You don't just get to a certain weight, and that's it - you continue to challenge your mind and body to stay in peak condition. You are always experimenting with new and better ways to be at your best, otherwise you'll quit. If you've exhausted a particular training routine, move on to the next. Same with nutrition, aerobics, stretching, alternative medicine, etc.
When you get distracted from your goals, you pay more attention to what you LOOK like rather than what you FEEL like. Your mind will mix up what's important, substituting a superficial focus for an internal one. On days like this, it's going to take an extra effort to push the superficial away. You'll find the more you get into your workout, the less self-conscious you'll feel.
You have the most sophisticated computer in the world between your ears - use it Leverage your mind to figure out a way to redirect family events and business lunches to fit your dietary health habits. My experience as a raw-foodist has taught me a wonderful lesson The way people react to you and your diet has nothing to do with the diet itself, with other people, or with anything else the way people react has everything to do with what is going on in your own mind Once your mind is set right, everything else is set right.
Everyone will inadvertently hit a frustrating plateau in their training at one time or another. You're cruising along for a while, gaining strength, losing fat, looking better, and then all of the sudden it hits. Suddenly, you find yourself even weaker than before on your lifts, or you find that you've gained back a couple of pounds. It happens to everyone. Most of the time, these plateaus occur because people rarely change their training variables over time. Many people stick to the same types of exercises for the same basic sets and reps and rest periods with the same boring cardio routine. Well, I hope to open your mind and bring some creativity to your workouts with this section There are many ways that you can strategically modify your training variables to assure that you maximize your fat loss and or muscle building response to exercise. Most people only think about changing their sets and reps performed, if they even think about changing their routine at all. However, other...
When you believe something can be done, really believe, your mind will find the ways to do it. Believing a solution paves the way to solution. --Dr. David Schwartz There is no such thing as can't, only won't. If you're qualified, all it takes is a burning desire to accomplish, to make a change. Go forward, go backward. Whatever it takes But you can't blame other people or society in general. It all comes from your mind. When we do the impossible we realize we are special people. --Jan Ashford
Arguably the biggest obstacle to losing those last few pounds is YOU. People blame all kinds of things for their excess weight. Truth is, they wouldn't know what to do if that excuse wasn't there. I challenge you to see yourself already at your goal weight, happy, confident, energetic, and beautiful. As if you're there RIGHT NOW. Always keep this mental picture in your mind, and you will achieve your goal.
This is a regular test of discipline and a rest for the body from any heavy digesting. This habit will bring great health and a longer life. Make no mistake it is a big commitment but if you put your mind to it you can do it. Sometimes I choose to do this day with only juice. For now eating fruit and drinking fresh juice will be fine for you.
It attracts whatever corresponds to its ruling state. What you EXPECT determines what that ruling state will be and therefore controls what corresponds to the mind and what is attracted into your life. What you EXPECT can either be a blessing or a curse either way, it is certainly one of the most powerful, unseen forces today. You cannot have ultimate success until you have first visualized it in your mind. This means that before any one of us can even begin to conquer our failures in life, we must first conquer what's holding us back deep within ourselves. When your understanding grasps the power to visualize your HEART'S DESIRES and holds it with your will, it attracts to you all things requisite to the fulfillment of that picture by the harmonious vibration of the Law of Attraction. -Genevieve Behrend, Your Invisible Power
Since this program won't make you hurt or tire you out, the only other excuse to skip it is the time it takes. Now 15 minutes a day isn't much time, even if you ignore the time you gain by not dropping dead prematurely. But the effective bite out of your day can be reduced even further. More than half your exercise time is spent in the run and jump exercise, especially after you advance to the middle rungs of the Lifetime Ladder. I've found that, with a little practice, I have no trouble keeping count of the 75 steps and 10 jumping jacks while letting my mind free-run on whatever I'm interested in at the moment. In fact, in the couple of years I've been following this program, I've had some of my very best ideas while doing the running and jumping exercises. I don't know whether it has something to do with getting the circulation going, or just with being forced to think for five minutes or so, but it happens. (It is hard to keep track of the number of sets of running and jumping at...
Go after it Go all out no holding back. No gray area. You either do, or do not (as Yoda from Empire Strikes Back says). Make up your mind to win, to get that body and energy you want, and nothing less. You believe in yourself. You have confidence. That's when you get results.
There is magic - and it's YOU. It's about how badly you want it, what you're willing to do, how you're going to live your life, to get it, overcoming obstacles. Keep firmly planted in your mind that YOU ARE GREATER THAN ANYTHING THAT CAN HAPPEN TO YOU.
Science progresses in a slow and careful fashion. That's why products that use words like breakthrough and miracle and even discovery should send up red flags in your mind. Another warning sign reliance on anecdotal evidence ( testimonials or case histories ) rather than published scientific data that is based on the results of studies with many patients.
The best, most fun, and most exciting way to attract financial abundance is to find out what you really enjoy doing in life, the thing you have always loved doing, the thing you always wanted to spend all your time on, and then leverage your mind to figure out how to attract money while doing it.

When reading or listening to a news account of a particular study, it is helpful to have a few key questions in the back of your mind not only to help evaluate the merits of the study but also to determine whether it is applicable to you. Look to news reports to address the following
Well, I hope you've enjoyed all of these ideas for ways to really shake up your workouts and make them fun again. I know some of them may seem a little out there , but open your mind to the possibilities and you'll never be bored again. and your body will respond with new found results Remember, don't listen to all of the gimmicks and infomercials, etc. that claim that THEIR training style or machine or routine is THE BEST in the world. There is no single best method. But there are lots of great methods to try out and see which work best for you and keeps you interested
One of the greatest values of The Sunfood Diet is that it opens you up to the idea that many of your other deep-seated beliefs may be totally false. The effects of adopting The Sunfood Diet disassembles your view of the world. Once you experience that eating cooked and artificially grown food immediately detracts from the normal function of your body, you will begin to question many other aspects of your belief system. So, The Sunfood Diet acts like a battering ram crumbling away the stagnated belief systems of your mind. It allows you to grow in new directions you never would have predicted. You will be ready to try new things and to test new approaches to life's daily challenges. After you have made the commitment to radically improve your diet, you subconsciously reinforce in your mind that your life has meaning and that striving for extraordinary health is worth the effort. You have made a commitment to really living life.
The visiting birds and bees and bugs and winds are like television, radio, computers, friends, and relatives. If you fail to control and carefully plant the seeds of positive thought in your garden-mind with positive media, friends, or relatives, then negative seeds will grow by default. Computer programmers know GIGO Garbage In, Garbage Out. It is just as dangerous to feed junk information to your mind as it is to feed junk food to your body.
To become a 100 raw-foodist, you must have the desire. You must be willing to pay the price. The price may be much or it may be little, but you must condition your mind to pay it (and pay it gladly ), regardless of the cost. Remember Andrew Carnegie's saying, Anything worth having is worth working for. Once you have been 100 raw for a time (6 months or more), and you have cleaned the cooked-food residue out of your body, it becomes easy. When you let go of cooked food, life becomes even more exciting. After many years of eating exclusively raw foods, your mindset will become more resolute, flexible, clear, free of doubt your body will become lithe, supple, sensitive, and filled with energy.
Heart disease describes several health problems that relate to the heart and blood vessels. Heart attacks and strokes may come to your mind first. However, high blood pressure, angina (chest pain), poor circulation, and abnormal heartbeats are among the other forms of heart disease.
Doctors and scientists around the world are discovering the positive relationship between a healthy attitude and a healthy body. It is difficult for one to exist without the other. Remember, the body is only an instrument of the mind. So when you feed your mind, I feel fat, your body will act to keep you that way. One of the greatest obstacles to our good health and a fit body can be the disabling effects of uncontrolled stress. Ongoing high levels of stress have been associated with digestive problems, high blood pressure, slow healing, emotional fatigue, energy drain, and so on. Your body is an instrument of your mind it will reflect physically what you're distressed about.
The way to make a radical change in your life is to consistently bombard your brain with a new stream of personal-development information, presented by different people, and presented in different formats. Since your number one goal is to be totally healthy, all the information entering your mind should be furthering that goal and none of the information should be detracting from it. When you are healthy, and your suggestive environment is cleared, you can accelerate your success by converting all information entering your mind into one focused field - the field in which you desire to excel. Make all information input positive, uplifting, and focused on the items necessary in this field for your goal achievement. You can become an expert in any field in less than five years, and if you truly saturate yourself in the way I have advised, you can become an expert in any field in two or three years.
Realize that You Have The Power Within You to make yourself a healthy fit vital and alive individual
Affirm and keep on affirming that the powerful life force is flowing through your mind, your spirit, and your body. 4. Every day practice emptying your mind of all unhealthy attitudes. A good example of this exercise is meditation. Even if it's for 15 minutes. Done regularly, you'll soon be able to clear your mind of these detrimental attitudes on cue. Affirmations work well, too. My mind is calm and serene, or something to that effect. Don't tell yourself you're free from this bad thought or that bad thought, because then you're going to be constantly aware of them. And that's going to keep you in a rut. 5. Keep your mind tuned up to keep your body in tone. Here's a big request I have of you for just 24 hours, think healthier. For every thought that enters your mind, make it a healthy, productive thought, no matter how bad the situation. Really. All I'm asking is for 24 hours.

What you're going to do is watch the form of somebody who knows what s he's doing, like a professional athlete on TV, a personal trainer at the gym, or the star on an exercise video. Watching the form of somebody with good technique gives your mind's eye an image to focus on, and your body will actually mimic good technique.

When goals are focused and in progression, they produce a driving force in your mind with awesome creativity and power of accomplishment.

Now that you have a picture of a serving in your mind, you can slice away the extra from your restaurant plate and take it home for lunch or dinner the next day. That's what doggie bags are for. (Now that I have my very first cat, after years and years of adaptable lovable dogs, I know that the sacks are called doggie bags because cats are too smart okay, too finicky to eat someone else's leftovers.)
One question that should come up in your mind is this Is 80g of protein all the protein you'd need to eat for optimal performance The answer probably not. Some researchers have suggested that athletes may need much more protein than the RDA (up to 2.0g protein kg body mass or 200g for our 100kg individual above).

So the calorie theory is false and now you know why. But that is not the end of it. The theory is so ingrained in your mind that for some time to come you will catch yourself still eating according to its principles. And when we start discussing the method of eating that I am recommending to you in this book, you may well feel confused at first, because what I am suggesting seems to be completely at odds with this famous theory. If this happens, just re-read this chapter until everything is completely clear to you.
Welcome to the Budokon Weight Loss System. This 12-week program is designed to promote weight loss through information, education, and motivation. There is no better approach to losing weight than natural foods, exercise, and the belief that you are responsible for and in complete control of your reality. These three components, however challenging, are the simple solution.
You don't want solutions, you want a LISTENER. Tell them that. Don't expect them to read your mind. Jane, before I say anything, I just need you to listen. Don't give me answers, just LISTEN. A real friend or family member will respect your wishes. At this point, your failure situation doesn't offer obvious solutions - at the moment. Talking it out with someone else, even though the other party has nothing to contribute - enables your mind to start putting things in order, especially when you use Damage Control ( 1). You re-focus, your thinking is clearer, and the solutions come more easily.
Imagine a beautiful garden with brilliant Sun, crystalline water, friendly insects, and rich soil ripe for the planting. A garden, perfect in every respect, except, there are no desirable seeds present because you have not planted them. The only seeds sprouting are those weeks and shrubs planted by others, or by the wind and birds. Yet you continue to tend and cultivate those haphazard plants with your resources. This perfect garden, containing none of your own seeds, is what your mind is like when you have no definite goals. If you have no crop to nurture to an edible state you drift along with the vagaries, whims, and goals of others. Writing a vision, idea, or goal down makes it a commitment. It tells the subconscious mind what you want to do. It compels the subconscious to figure out how to make your vision become reality. Remember Don't just think it, ink it. The more often you write down your goals, review them, and get into the habit of working on them, the quicker they...
Jasmuheen of Australia, founder of The Self-Empowerment Academy, describes in her book Living On Light how she has lived on herbal teas and very little food since June 1993. She writes it is not about fasting, it is about allowing, trusting, clicking into an energy pattern of knowing that our true sustenance is provided by Cosmic Light, which sustains many beings from many Universes, and is a possibility offered to us here and now. Nor is it a process of denial
Command is the thing derived from reality and might. Reality without might achieves nothing. Might without reality renders wasted action. The idea of taking command teaches you to purposefully blend knowledge and actions to develop levelheaded results. This book will provide insight to command.
