Subconscious Mind: 2 Ways You Can Transform Your Life...
Have you ever considered how powerful you are? When God created human beings do you know what He said? He said, “Let us make human beings in our image, to be like us…” look it up for yourself, Genesis 1: 26
Okay, let me break it down for you…
One of the attributes of God is that He is omnipotent. This means that he is full of power. Omnipotent means that God is potentially everything. He has within him the potential for all that is, was, or ever will be.
So, when God said “Let us make human beings in our image, to be like us”, this means that we were created with part of his potentiality in us. We were never meant to live a mediocre life. But as you know, sin has blocked our potential and messed up the plan God had for each of our lives.
We Have Lost Sight Of Our Potential...
Satan destroyed man’s true intelligence, which is a spiritual relationship with God. We started to look outside ourselves to find knowledge.
I remember the days when I used to look up zodiac signs to understand who I am. I used to spend hours reading those things to find out my qualities and strengths.
It took me years to understand that, the only way a plant can grow is by being connected to its source. Without its source, there’s only dryness and a dead plant. Jesus gave his life to restore your relationship with God, to give you abundant, and flowing life. In him only, you have true knowledge.
So, let’s recapitulate. God created you with a great wealth of potential. But sin came and distract us from the plan of God, causing us to lose sight of our potential. But Jesus came to restore it all. To expose your potential, you have to be connected to your source.
The Mysteries of The Mind...
You have within you a hidden power. A power so remarkable that it can literally transform your life. That is the power of your subconscious mind.
Our minds are like a battlefield. Satan uses our minds to plant negative thoughts, lie to us, and manipulate us to submit to his lies. Even though we cannot fully control our thoughts, but we can control what we allow and what we reject.
This is the reason the Bible tells us in Romans 12:2 to Let God transform us into a new person by changing the way that we think. Because by changing the inner attitudes of our minds, we can change the outer aspects of our lives.
Salomon also said it “as a man thinketh in his heart so is he.”
The Power Of Your Subconscious Mind.
Everything you have ever experienced in your life is present in the memory bank of your subconscious mind… including every sight you have seen, every emotion you have ever experienced, etc. and this brings me right to my point.
The subconscious mind is where you hold the deep-seeded beliefs about yourself, including whether you see yourself as talented or untalented, intelligent or unintelligent, successful or unsuccessful, etc. These deep-seeded beliefs about yourself are the results of all your life’s experiences.
In other words, the beliefs about yourself that you hold deep in your subconscious mind have a tremendous effect on the reality you experience in your life.
This is why many people even after giving their lives to Jesus are still struggling to find their purpose in life. Because even though they have been set free, they still think and see their lives as mediocre.
This is the work of Satan, he puts people in our way to tell us that “You’ll never be anything”, “You’re stupid” etc. Eventually, we started believing these lies, and these lies will become our reality.
To illustrate, if you have a deep subconscious belief that you are stupid, your subconscious mind will cause you to do things that make you look stupid.
Your subconscious mind is so powerful. I hope you are beginning to get the picture of why Satan attacks your mind. Because if he can control your mind, he can control your reality. So, if you’re not happy with your reality today, you need to change your subconscious self-image.
How to Change Your Self-Image & Live Up to Your Potential?
Today I’m going to give you two methods you can practice changing your self-image. These are so simple yet so powerful. Your potential to succeed is infinite. God created you in His image, do not let Satan steal that from you any longer.
You’re probably familiar with the first method, and this is to practice affirmations. We have such a powerful tool inside us, and that is our tongue. The declarations over your life will become a reality in your life. So, why not speak life over your life.
The Power Of Your Words...
Here’s how the process goes…
Take a pen and a paper and start writing and designing the life that you want. Write down a series of affirmations that describe your life exactly as you want it to be. Here are some examples:
- I am positive
- I own a successful business
- I am living a purposeful life
- I bring happiness to others
These are a few examples for you to get the image. There’s power in the words that you speak over your life. So write your list carefully, and use them to affirm every day. Without even noticing you will start to see positive changes in your life.
Say “YES” to Jesus
Sin clogs up our potential. But God sent Jesus into the world to die so you can know who you are and what is the fullness of your potential. He came to open up the capacity of who you are, to unblock your true self.
Jesus has already done his part, now it’s time for you to do your part. Jesus said, “whatever you ask in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.” Did you notice that it is similar to the affirmations? You affirm that it’s already yours by writing present tense. This time you are backing it up with faith. There’s an order given by this verse.
You first ask, then you believe that it’s already yours, and it will be yours. This is exactly what faith is. You believe before it’s physically present in our lives.
Now, what does prayer have to do with the subconscious mind?
Do you remember when I told you that whatever you believe will become your reality? When you pray in faith and believe that whatever you’ve asked for is already yours. This will have a tremendous effect on your mind. That will eventually affect your reality.
Here are some examples:
- Thank you, God, for the happiness I experience every day
- Thank you for releasing all toxic traits from my behavior
- I’m thankful that I’m getting healthier every day, and so on.
I hope that you have gotten a better understanding of your potential and how to change the self-image of your subconscious mind. And what a powerful weapon it can be when it comes to transforming your life.
You are destined for greatness, but unless you started to believe that God has deposited a wealth of potential inside you, you will keep living a meaningless life. I want to see you thrive and be successful in everything that you do.
