You can be the change you want. Though the subconscious may sway your feeling like a pendulum, you can consciously make fundamental changes in how you think, act, and feel. The key is always to be mindful of the reactionary silent thought that springs up from your subconscious mind.
If you're on a project and your conscious mind is hard at work trying to execute a goal you have, and suddenly you feel insecure or weak, it's likely a deep seeded belief is pushing back on your confidence.
The most effective way to address this issue is by taking a few quiet moments to mentally identify the source of insecurity and convince yourself of their absurdity. Then start building a new logic, one that supports you. By saying, " I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me." You embed an image of power and love one that supplies you with a real power that moves mountains of defeat and smooths-out the rough places of your subconscious.
By confronting the cause of insecurity and replacing it with powerful thoughts, you strengthen character and gain confidence over the petty annoyances of negative thinking. Vacillate between internal statements like, "yes I can" and "no I can't" is the most common reason why people fail.
Fluctuations of positive and negative thought short-circuit our chances of success, so you must be vigilant. If a thought disturbs you, identify it, observe it, then immediately replace it with a positive concept. The practice will help gradually eliminate bothersome subconscious mental patterns while solidifying a strong personality, a personality that consistently executes goals with the power of a congruent mind.
The following is one of the most famous quotes in the Bible about prayer which reflects the importance of this type of internal reasoning.
"Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them."
According to the words of Jesus, you cannot receive the object of your prayer unless you really believe. If you focus on an aim but your subconscious fights it, belief weakens. The message of this passage indicates that God empowers any thought fully accepted at all levels of mind. This, of course, explains why all types of miracles are possible. When the fallacy of faulty thinking is cast down so is resistance to blessing, then all things become possible with God.
This point beautifully illustrated once again by the miracle of feeding five thousand people with a few loaves of bread. In Luke 9:13 it's recounted that Jesus tells His disciples to feed the multitude. The command is written in the pages of time as a testimony that all human beings are capable of performing the miraculous. As with so many people today the reactionary "I can't" response was, "but we only have five loaves and two fish." The disciples never paused to evaluate the teachings of Jesus, nor do they reason that if the Son of God told to do something, it probably meant they were capable of carrying out the request. They just react with a "can't" attitude, a typical negative reaction driven by a subconscious belief.
The problem most fought by Jesus was the disharmony between the inner subconscious mind and the outer conscious mind. Doubt, fear, defeat, and insecurities swirling in the subconscious not only zaps our capabilities, by they inhibit God's power to support our efforts.
Jesus' response to doubt was to instruct all to sit down and prepare for a meal. Then He prayed by giving thanks, broke the loaves and gave them to His disciples. Everyone ate, and there were twelve baskets of leftovers.
This part of scripture lucidly demonstrates the perfect state of mind and behavior of congruency. Jesus reacts to the situation from the belief that all things are possible with God. The vision is clear in His mind, and consciously sees the execution of the distribution of food. His subconscious mind is in complete harmony with the vision. There is no doubt and no fear. The only thing that exists in His mind at all levels is the vision. It is real and substantial. (Hebrews 11:1) Then He proceeds to thank God, asks for a blessing, then proceeds as if the miracle has already happened.
The entire process reveals how one can achieve miraculous results in any endeavor, even if it is just getting lunch, and He expects all of us to do the same. If you didn't notice, there are simple steps to achieving great success with God.
1. Think. Your subconscious and conscious mind must unify in belief. The realization of positive belief in a goal, or accomplishment, must be the only thing that exists in your mind and it must produce harmony at all levels, if the subconscious mind kicks back, identify the psychology, let it go, and supplant it with a new thought.
2. See. Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. (Hebrews 11:1) Your vision must be real and substantial. It must drive your thinking, words, and actions.
3. Be. You must move ahead according to the realized vision in your mind. Just like Jesus, you must give thanks for the for what you see as real then take the first step. As you move forward every new step will reveal itself. If you've conquered all doubt, fear, or insecurity the words you speak and actions you take will reflect your inner reality, and just like Jesus, the impossible will be possible.
