subconscious mind review

Please be sure to review email 42 and any other needed links before taking on the suggested exercise below.


I have suggested that it makes perfect sense, on the surface, for us to go back to “what is” when we experience a lack of comfort with our change efforts. This allows us to conserve energy even when the outcomes continue to be painful. Yet, this back and forth process only serves to further condition or hard-wire the very thoughts, feelings and behaviors that do not serve us.

I have spoken many times about the need for small incremental changes as we re-educate the subconscious mind. I have spoken about the need to break big picture goals down into smaller pieces to nudge the subconscious mind willingly down a new path. When we do this, we position ourselves for little successes that will eventually build the momentum we need.

Let’s look at a seemingly small example:

Nancy drinks four cups of coffee each morning. She is left feeling jittery and the caffeine irritates her bowels. Since she has already been diagnosed with irritable bowel syndrome, her doctor has strongly suggested that she cut back her coffee consumption. She is highly motivated to please her doctor and decides to cease her morning coffee routine all together.

Given what we have covered in this series what do you think the outcome of Nancy’s decision and action will likely be? Why? Take some time to consider this seemingly small example and be specific in your analysis about her likelihood of success. Take out and pen and paper and jot down the reasons why you think Nancy will be successful or not.

We will continue to play with this example in the next email.
