Conscious vs Subconscious Mind, and Tapping

March 07, 2011

Last week I talked about the importance of our thoughts, and how their content can literally shape our lives.

However, it is important to understand that just having positive thoughts alone does not do the trick, neither do unrealistic affirmations, like thinking or saying you are rich and healthy, when you are broke and sick, for instance, this will only diminish your trust and might be even counterproductive.

This does not mean that positive thinking won't help, it certainly will, but we need to reach a deeper level of consciousness in order to achieve a real change in our lives. Our thoughts lie in our conscious mind, but the conscious mind is only the tip of the iceberg, it is our subconscious mind that really runs de show. The subconscious mind has all the programming that directs our actions. That is why, we need to reach our subconscious mind in order to make a lasting positive shift in our life.

Think of a small child that learns how to tie his shoes, he does so by following what others tell him to do, then by constant repetition and, finally... one day he starts doing it without even thinking about it, it becomes second nature, it has been "programmed" in his "database".

Just like this, there are many things (beliefs mostly) that get programmed in our subconscious mind, from a very young age, and make us act, react and think a certain way… often without our conscious knowledge and in spite of our affirmations and positive thoughts.

On this topic, I would like to share a video interview with Cellular Biologist Bruce Lipton, (it is the second part of a full interview he gave for EFT*). This video touches on health and its relationship with thinking, and on the conscious versus the subconscious mind. Enjoy it!


*Towards the end of this video Bruce briefly mentions a great method called EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique), which offers a very simple way to release negative energy and tap into your subconscious mind more effectively.

The EFT method is based on Meridian Tapping Techniques (MTT), sometimes described as "acupuncture without needles." Meridian Tapping uses specific points on the body that are known as "acupressure" points (the same points used in acupuncture) and by simply tapping on these points, using your own fingers, you can stimulate your body's energy system and release negative energy.

Many Therapists are using this technique for different outcomes, such as: eliminating pain, stress, insomnia; improving weigh loss, fighting addictions and depression, etc. but anybody can use it for overall health and wellbeing.

You can learn more about this technique here.

Have a wonderful week!
