Can you really reprogram your brain?

Your subconscious mind controls up to 95% of your life. 

What does this mean? 

Imagine opening up a brand new laptop, but it doesn’t have an operating system. For about the first seven years of life, our subconscious mind becomes programmed – like an empty computer – by the experiences, environments, energies, and ideas around us. Lots of what we learn during this formative time becomes actions we perform for life on autopilot. For example, during these years you learned to walk, use utensils, and brush your teeth, all things you now without much effort.

So, what else do you think and do on autopilot without thinking?

Whatever it is, odds are it took up residence in your subconscious mind before seven, and still hangs out with you today. Maybe you’re programmed to have some of these thoughts – do any of these feel familiar to you?
  • I’ll never be strong.
  • Money is hard to come by.
  • I’m the funny one in the family, my sister is the smart one.
  • When I’m honest, it makes people mad.
  • I should always be dieting.
  • The best way to make a point is through yelling.
  • Relaxing is for lazy people.
  • Failure is to be feared.
Since 95% of your day is controlled by your subconscious mind, this means that often times we have NO IDEA why we can’t seem to get where we want to go and be who we want to be. Let’s say you were preprogrammed as a child to believe some of these above statements, but you’re consciously trying to create a life with:
  • Authenticity.
  • Bravery.
  • Financial success.
  • A healthy, strong body.
  • More calm and less anxiety.

Despite consciously working toward this lifestyle, your self-sabotage is automatic because it’s pre-programmed into your subconscious. You don’t yet have a subconscious belief system that will allow you to create space for the wins you’re working so hard for.

So, what limiting beliefs were programmed into your subconscious mind, before you were even old enough to choose your beliefs?

It’s an important exercise to reflect and journal on some of these beliefs, helping ourselves realize that many of our limits are simply illusions. By REPROGRAMMING your subconscious mind, you can carve brand new paths forward and lift the heaviness of lifelong roadblocks that have been standing in your way.

This is why no workout or nutrition plan will create lasting change in your body, and why I teach you to train your brain, first. Want proof that this works?

You absolutely can retrain your subconscious mind, and you already have evidence. Odds are, you know how to drive. (Full disclosure, I didn’t get my license until I was thirty-four! It took years of therapy to uncover why I had a paralyzing mental block around driving.) When you’re driving, your subconscious mind is doing most of the work for you on autopilot. You learned to drive as an adult, and this is proof that you can make other empowering actions automatic in your life, too.

Destroy your limits.

There are a variety of ways to retrain your subconscious mind. Some of them include listening to binaural beats, hypnotherapy, meditation, and adopting habits that support new thinking.

How I do it.

After years of therapy, meditation, and exploration, I compiled all of my favourite tools in one morning practice that I’ve been using for years. Like everything, change doesn’t happen overnight. The subconscious mind takes time to retrain, so consistent dedication is key.

Rise + decide.

Every morning, after doing these simple things, my personal practice includes the following components:

  1. Movement.
  2. Breath.
  3. Gratitude.
  4. Affirmation.
  5. Visualization.
  6. Forgiveness.
  7. Kindness out.
  8. Kindness in.

I am still hosting my Rebel Mindset practice each morning at 7 AM ET live on Instagram, and you can watch it later by clicking the videos in my stories. Learn how to put the power of this practice to work in your life, and carve the path toward everything you dream for yourself and the world around you. Stay tuned, too, for more ways to dive deeper into our mindset practices. Coming Summer, 2020!
