The next step in manifesting your money goal is to turn your attractor switch ON. This involves getting your subconscious mind to line up to your conscious choices. Whilst your conscious mind has embraced your intention, your subconscious needs to be in that space too. Your subconscious beliefs and patterns are responsible for everything that is in your life today, so to change tomorrow, you need to work with the subconscious today. More significantly it is through the subconscious that our Soul speaks to us, so that makes this approach a must!
So today I’m going to give you some information about the conscious and subconscious – its quite a read, but really important to understanding manifesting. It’s an extract from my online Course in Feelings. Ready to turn your manifesting switch ON? Yes, let’s do it!
This is the part of the mind that you are aware of. You know it as the voice of the mind – forever commenting on your world. For instance when you are out shopping you might hear it say ‘now, do I want to make roast potatoes or mashed potatoes tonight? The children like mash, but these potatoes are too small’.
It not only sounds like a voice, but the conscious mind gives you mental images too. Along with the words roast potatoes it might show images of delicious potatoes, basting in a pan. And into the voices and image mix, come feelings, for instance if you have happy memories of family dinners where roast potatoes were served, cooking these for supper will be appealing without you even knowing why.
The Subconscious Mind
This part of the mind works below your awareness. It controls things from behind the scenes. For example the subconscious keeps your body functioning, after all you don’t instruct your heart to beat, or digestive juices to be secreted when you eat, or your muscles to contract as you walk. No, that’s all taken care of by the subconscious mind.
Moreover everything you do and have done your entire life, everything you see and have seen, everything about you and your world, has been and continues to be recorded in your subconscious mind. The subconscious is like a camera storing your entire experience of the world, including the zillions of bits you don’t even notice at the time. Although most of us cannot access most of this information it is nonetheless still in our minds, influencing how we think and respond. Most importantly it influences what we attract and what we repel.
The information stored is used by the subconscious as reference points to determine the best course of action in the present. If you have been bitten by a dog as a child, when you encounter one as an adult you will feel fear and avoid going too close. You don’t choose to feel fear. It happens automatically. In this way the past creates the present.
The fear is there to protect you from future pain, and in this way feelings act as your friend. In truth all of your feelings, produced by the subconscious, are there to help keep you safe and alive and it’s important to know and acknowledge this truth. Anger, frustration, sadness, guilt, defensiveness etc once, although helped you survive in the past – emotionally, physically or mentally. Some of your feelings might not help you now or even make sense, but they did at some point.
The subconscious mind not only keeps records but uses the information to run daily affairs in your life, in this case your money matters – how much you attract, how you feel when you receive it, how you feel when you spend it, when and how you save it or spend it etc etc.
When you wish to send a note to someone, you don’t have to say to yourself “now how do I write a ‘d’?” No, your hand simply knows this. Your mind knows this. You never have to remember the steps you were taught, you just go ahead and write. In the same way that it allows us to write without thinking about the task of writing; it guides your relationship to money without conscious thought about what is motivating your choice at the moment.
Your subconscious is responsible for over 90% of everything you think, say or do, every response or feeling. Wow! is that not amazing? And that’s the beauty of it – and the problem of it. It helps you recognise the numbers on your bank statement, but it also tightens your tummy when there is not enough money to pay the bills.
And alongside all the money events of our lives the subconscious has recorded all the feelings associated with them. Many and most of these we don’t remember, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t influencing you right now. Let’s say for example that every time you saved every cent of your pocket money as a little child your brother said that you were stingy. This would bring up negative feelings around saving money, and you might have turned out to be spendthrift. So, without knowing why, you never have any savings and you can’t stop buying stuff.
But what if you actually had a natural flair for knowing what shares to buy on the stock market? Wouldn’t the memories in your subconscious hold you back? Of course! So this week I am going to give you exercises to help you become even more aware of your feelings and behaviours around money. I’m particularly interested in the feelings tthat lie deeply hidden, waiting to steal away the money success you desire. We don’t have to discover all the memories and hey! we don’t have time to dig up every inch of the past either! What we want is simply for you to get in tune with your negative feelings about money so that you can use the information they provide to move on.
I like to think of feelings and intuition as falling into two categories – a YES feeling, and a NO feeling. And, both the person experiencing the feeling and any observant outsider can easily identify which feelings are active by simply looking at body language.
The man on the mountain picture is what a strong YES feeling does to the body. The entire body is open and reaching out into life in a joyful trusting way. A subtle version of this YES feeling would be somebody sitting with their arms and legs uncrossed, shoulders down and a friendly look on their face. No tension in the tummy, no pounding heart or short of breath. When you feel this way when dealing with your money, you know that your conscious and subconscious are lined up to achieve the goal.
A strong NO feeling would be the opposite. The body pulls itself inward, shrinking away from life. A subtle version of the NO feeling would be somebody sitting shoulders hunched, hands clenched, legs and arms pulled into the body by either crossing them or standing very erect and stiff. Spastic colon is also a version of this NO constriction. You probably experienced such bodily responses when stressing about money – or lack of it. I certainly have!
Now first thing to remember is that both YES And NO feelings and expressions are our friend. What! you might say! How can a spastic colon or heart palpitations be my friend? Simple! They give us important information about our money beliefs in the moments. To be clear, a YES is my friend, AND a NO is my friend. A YES tells you that your money attractor switch is ON. A NO feelings tells you that it is OFF.
The more you work with your NO feelings in the right way (which is what I’m going to teach you), the more wonderful YES feelings you will experience. The experience of a NO feeling is the sound of KNOW. When you have NO feeling, you KNOW that you’re repelling money.
Feeling are your friend! Feelings are information delivered straight from the subconscious. YES feelings are the signposts to natural success. YES feelings are like magnets, magnetising into your life everything you need to create abundance money, success and happiness. We all experience a range of YES or NO feelings every day, mostly in less pronounced versions than the YES man pictured above, but either way if we turn our attention to them it’s surprisingly easy to feel whether it’s a NO or YES.
And from now on we will be doing exactly as a regular practise. Over time and with repetition, you will become increasingly sensitised to the opening and closing feelings in your body, the YES and NO of the moment. When that happens you are in touch with essential information about your relationship to money, information that comes from a far greater and more potent source than that of your conscious mind. It comes from your unconscious, your Soul and the supra consciousness. And this is good news as you can use this YES/NO information to guide you to achieve your intention that you have lovingly placed in your envelop.
Practising the lessons
Start a record of what you feel when you think about or work with money in any form, noting whether you get a YESor NO feeling. Every time you take out your wallet to buy something, notice whether your feel open and expressed orclosed and shrunken. Everytime you see money in your bank account, notice whether you get YES/joy or NO/fear. In EVERY interaction with money you will take out your notebook, note the time, circumstance and whether you have a YES or NO sensation in your body. It’s not about mind, it’s about body, the voice of the subconscious.
After doing this for a week, you will have a much clearer idea of whether your subconscious is supporting your MEGA MONEY goal or countermanding it. This learning will put the power of choice in your hands. It’s key to note that the intention of this practise is NOT to change your NO feelings, just become aware of them. This is a very important point.
So my friends, a lot of information, but really important. Please post up at least one sentence a day on this face book page. Think of it as your diary. By doing that you will keep yourself doing the right legwork to get maximum mileage and transformation.
Good Luck! Good Money!
