How to make anything possible
Updated: Jan 12
If you are feeling stuck, find yourself repeating the same unhelpful patterns in your life, or are not meeting your goals, it isn’t because there is something wrong with you! Your brain is simply not working for you. Did you know that you make about 35,000 decisions a day? That’s nearly 25 decisions every minute! And many of these decisions are either leading you closer to your goals and dreams, or further away from them. Now here is the bad news. Every single one of those decisions are made in your subconscious or unconscious mind up to seven seconds before your conscious mind thinks it is deciding anything. The truth is, if you are not living your best life or reaching your goals it’s because your subconscious mind is sabotaging you. Somewhere there is a conflict between your conscious desires and your subconscious or unconscious programs. So how does our subconscious get ‘programmed’ or wired up in the first place? Well, in very basic terms we have an experience, we learn from it and that determines how we respond to the next experience, which then creates another experience, et cetera. This learning builds and builds to create patterns and habits in our lives, and even beliefs and our sense of self! All that learning that has happened over time mostly becomes unconscious, which means it is unknown to us. We don’t have the ability to quickly recall it. The problem is that we are using those unconscious memories to create our current reality – without even knowing it! So here is the good news. You can change your brain and change this subconscious programming. In the year 2000, it was discovered that our long-term memories, that once were thought to be permanent, can actually be changed due to something called the window of reconsolidation. Simply put, there is a moment when a memory is remembered where the synapses in the brain detach and can then follow a new path, quite literally a moment of opportunity to rewire or reorganise things. Our brains are incredibly powerful. In fact, Japanese scientists have found that it would take nearly 200 million super processors running at full speed to reproduce the amount of work your brain can do in only 1 second! Your brain is the ultimate super computer. To make our brains work better for us, the one thing we must do is tap into that unconscious learning. If there is anything in your life that isn’t working how you want it to, you literally need to reorganise the wiring in your brain in order to change your current reality.
