How to Rewire Your Brain for Positive Change

They say that by the time we reach 35 years old, 95% of who we are is already ingrained within us.

Our behaviors, emotional reactions, habits, attitudes, beliefs, and perceptions become a well-established program, much like a computer program. However, what if we desire a different path? What if we want to be healthier, happier, and free?

Let’s explore how to make profound changes in our lives by tapping into the power of our subconscious mind, transcending our analytical thoughts.

Understanding the Subconscious Mind

“95% of who we are by the time we’re 35 years old is a memorized set of behaviors, emotional reactions, unconscious habits, hardwired attitudes, beliefs, and perceptions that function like a computer program.”

The subconscious mind plays a significant role in shaping our lives.

With a vast reservoir of thoughts, memories, and automatic responses, our subconscious patterns often exert a powerful influence that can sometimes contradict our conscious desires.

For instance, while we may consciously aspire to adopt a healthy lifestyle, our subconscious programming might inadvertently steer us toward unhealthy choices. Thus, acknowledging and understanding this disparity becomes crucial as it marks the initial stride toward initiating change in our lives.

Bridging the Gap: Meditation as the Bridge

“What separates the conscious mind from the subconscious mind is the analytical mind. And that’s where meditation comes in.”

Meditation serves as a means to develop a heightened awareness of the present moment, which in turn helps us gain insight into the workings of our subconscious mind.

Through regular practice, we can cultivate a state of mindfulness that allows us to witness the thoughts and patterns that arise from our subconscious.

By observing these thoughts without attaching judgment or analysis, we create space for self-reflection and self-discovery. This process enables us to understand the deep-rooted beliefs and conditioning that influence our conscious thoughts and behaviors.

Ultimately, meditation acts as a bridge that connects our conscious and subconscious minds, facilitating a deeper understanding of ourselves and promoting personal growth and transformation.

Rewiring the Mind

“I want to be healthy, I want to be happy, I want to be free.” But the body is on a whole different program. So then how do you begin to make those changes?”

Once we enter the realm of our subconscious through meditation, we gain the opportunity to delve deeper into our inner selves and initiate profound transformations.

Through consistent and dedicated practice, we can effectively reprogram the intricate web of thoughts, beliefs, and behaviors that make up our subconscious programming ¹.

By actively introducing new thought patterns, positive affirmations, and healthy habits into this realm, we initiate a process of rewiring our subconscious. This transformative journey enables us to gradually replace outdated and limiting beliefs with empowering ones, ultimately aligning our subconscious mind with our conscious intentions and paving the way for personal growth and self-actualization.

“…you can teach people to practice how to change their brain when you slow them down, and when they do that properly, they do enter the operating system where they can begin to make some really important changes”

When we consciously work on rewiring our minds, we begin to experience significant changes that have a powerful impact on our lives.

At first, these changes might be subtle and not easily noticeable, but if we persist and remain patient, they can lead to profound transformations.The new mental programming we create starts to shape our behavior, choices, and overall perspective on life.

As a result, we become more aligned with who we want to be and the life we desire, which brings about improvements in our physical and emotional well-being.

We experience better health, increased happiness, and a greater sense of freedom in our day-to-day existence.
