Hello beautiful souls,
It's so great to share this time & space with you today 🙂
And a warm welcome to anyone new who has shown up recently - it's so awesome to have you here!
So take a moment, a breath, and let's dive into a big topic - that has the potential to shift everything for you - if you so choose.
Let's talk about the thing that runs 95% of our reality...
The Subconscious Mind.
I like to see the subconscious as an energy field full of information, memories, past experiences, and beliefs we hold, individually. I also believe that the world has a "collective" subconscious mind- the things we collectively believe in, events we've all gone through (or grown through), and memories of war/famine/etc.
But today, let's focus on the individual subconscious mind.
Again, 95% of our life is run by our subconscious mind.
From the ages of 0 to 7, we are in a theta brain wave state - which is almost like being in a HYPNOSIS state (where your brain waves slow down into theta waves).
We literally absorb ALL the information and interactions that are going on around us like a SPONGE! How our parents acted, what your teachers said to you, how other kids treated you, what you consumed on TV/radio/etc. And this is how our subconscious mind is formed.
And remember... 95% of this controls our adult life...think about that for a second. The hypnotized state of our 0-7 year old brain RUNS our adult life- until we become conscious of the subconscious.
As humans, this is our greatest ability- to become CONSCIOUS of our subconscious. This is where we can create SO many HUGE shifts. I was personally able to stop having regular panic attacks (like for real), and feeling powerless by understanding where it all came from. And for me, it was crucial to have my coach take me through the process, because it's very difficult to see our "deepest" subconscious patterns (because we feel like we just ARE that) - but a coach can see it clearly.
JUST the awareness is enough to create massive shifts.
So let's do it!! Are you ready to transform a part of your life? :O
I want you to choose one thing in your life that has been a bit of a struggle. Maybe it's a specific issue in your relationship or maybe you're super stressed out at work. Let's just use the work example...why not!
So you're super stressed at work. Here are some things you might be thinking:
"Work is super stressful right now. I feel like I'm on overdrive. I'm feeling restless at night. I can't stop thinking about my clients or the business deals I'm bringing in. My boss has been stressed out which makes me feel even more stressed."
Let's do a BELIEF breakdown around this area of your life: your career.
Tell me, what are some of your BELIEFS around career? What did you grow up SEEING around you? What did your parents think about work?
Perhaps your parents always said "Work is hard, but someone's gotta do it"
"You gotta put in your blood sweat and tears to get what you want"
"Money doesn't come easy. You gotta work hard for it"
"Working overtime is a good thing. Always say yes if your employer needs you to work more hours. Grind grind grind & hustle!!!!!!!".
or maybe you saw someone have the experience of:
"My boss was always mean to me and didn't give me my tip money, but I realized if I was super sweet and worked more than I had to, I would get recognition and he would give me my tip money".
Think about this for a second. These core beliefs will run your entire life- unless you become conscious of them 🙂
And this is what we're doing right now! woohoo!
SO, after observing this, how does it feel?
Are you open to seeing a different way?
Are you open to the idea of feeling better about work?
OR do you want to continue in your worn out ways?
It's ultimately up to you, and there's no wrong answer!
If you're ready for another way...here are some new beliefs you might resonate with. Take what resonates with you. Be honest about it. If it doesn't resonate, you don't have to "force" yourself to believe it. Because the truth is...you can't force it. You can't fake it til you make it, because your energy doesn't lie. *your subconscious doesn't lie*.
So start with what resonates, okay? 🙂
Some potential NEW beliefs:
-I'm allowed to breathe a little bit more when I work
-My work makes a difference in the world
-I love showing up to work with ease & joy in my heart
-I'm grateful to be able to work in the field I work in
-This job is allowing me to fuel my purpose in this world
-This work is allowing me to create wealth and fuel my entrepreneurship
-Work is busy right now, but I choose to show up in a space of ease and trusting the process
-It's okay if I get stressed from time to time, and I appreciate my willingness to care and show up
-I know this work isn't my "forever" work, but I appreciate the opportunities it's brought me
-I feel, sense, and know that this work was brought to me for a reason
-My boss is actually so great, and I love working with them
-My boss can be a pain in the butt, but I'm learning about my own insecurities through this experience and it's actually challenging who I am and who I want to be for the first time in my life
-I know that I impact the energy around me, and when I show up from a place of ease, everything shifts
-I know that it's not all up to me, and that I can ask people & even the universe for assistance and guidance
-I love getting to know my clients, coworkers, and people I chat with daily. It's so fulfilling and curious to hear about these people's stories and lives. How cool.
How does that feel?
Notice...how these teeny tiny shifts can create an opening in our chest, our heart, our mind. And notice...how internal shifts impact our external world.
Imagine...if every single person made one teeny tiny shift?
Ahh. Big Exhales. And smiles all around. 🙂
That's how powerful we are.
And that's how powerful YOU are, my friend.
This is the work of bringing our subconscious to the conscious mind and consciously shifting it. So wild right?? And so possible and so simple. And SO exciting!
And I LOVE this work!!!!!!!!!!! Lol.
My favourite thing in the whole world is watching someone shift. A "Holy shift" moment is what I call it! 😉
I do also want to stress that every single person has their own UNIQUE subconscious mind, based on their individual experiences. And sometimes we get into really deep work 1:1 that truly can't be done by following a formula. Sometimes, people will ask "how to shift" their energy on social media and it's not a black and white answer, because everyone is in their own season based on their past experiences, beliefs and current commitments to their growth.
So always always always tune into what works for YOU in this moment! And you can use this process for literally anything going on in your life, which is why I love it so much 🙂
Let me know if any of this landed for you. And if you liked this long-form style of blog post, where we really dive deep and break things down!
As always, feel free to respond with any A-Ha moments you had.
And we will chat soon my friend. 🙂
Have a fantastic rest of the week!
