The Power of Positive Suggestions
The subconscious mind is a sucker for suggestions; both, auto and hetero suggestions have a strong impact on it. They are introduced to the subconscious, are absorbed, stored and acted on by it. Positive suggestions have a positive effect and pave the way for success, while negative suggestions will have a negative impact and will eventually lead to one's downfall.
Suggestions first reach the conscious mind in the form of stimuli through the 5 senses - sight, hearing, touch, smell and taste. The conscious level of the mind acts on these stimuli and decides what needs to be passed to the subconscious mind. In other words, it acts as a filter by deciding which suggestions pass through it and reach the subconscious mind and which suggestions need to be ignored.
We are in complete control over what reaches our subconscious mind.
If everyone were to understand that they have full control over what they feed their minds with and exercise full control over this power, everyone in this world would be successful, wealthy and healthy. Unfortunately, this is not the case. When you finish reading this article, you will be able to train yourself to reinforce your mind with positive affirmations and turn your entire world around.a
AutosuggestionAs the name suggests, these are suggestions that one makes to one's self. No thought - whether positive or negative - can reach the subconscious mind without the power of autosuggestion. Repetitive positive affirmations are a powerful form of mind control that will bring you immense prosperity and success in all your endeavors no matter how significant and how big they are.
Yes, positive affirmations repeated several times are autosuggestions that will change your life for the better. But here is the flip side: You must believe. You can repeat positive affirmations a thousand times a day and nothing will come out of it if you do not believe and feel.
Repeating positive affirmations every day, several times a day is just a part of the story of successful mind power. In order to make autosuggestions work for you, they must be repeated with feeling and emotion. You must have faith in these autosuggestions to such an extent that you actually feel that what you want is already happening. Concentration, a burning desire and a feverish obsession are what will get you the success you crave for.
Hetero suggestionsHetero suggestions are those suggestions that are made by another person. Right from the stage of infancy, we have been susceptible to and reciprocated to hetero suggestions. Most often, these suggestions have been negative. “You cannot do this,” “you are not capable of that,” “you are too young,” “you can’t” are just some of the common negative hetero suggestions that have rendered our subconscious mind as incapable.
Today you can erase all traces of negative suggestions and begin to sow the seeds of positive thinking. Soon enough you will reap the benefits of using mind power to your benefit. Now that you are aware of how you can sift both auto and hetero suggestions, make a conscious effort to push away all negativity. Instead use positive thinking and positive affirmations to live the life you have always wanted.
