Whatever that silly little voice in the back of your head is saying you can’t do, you can rise above that voice. Maybe you’ve tried so many times you’re about to surrender to that voice. Or maybe you’re tired of fighting that voice. Some of you may already believe what that voice says about you…and it’s not very nice. It often says things like, you’re not good or worthy enough, people don’t love you, you’re a bad person, you can’t trust others, you can’t love others and so on.
Time to kick your subconscious to the curb
We ALL have had that voice…but that voice is not your heart. It’s your subconscious, your ego trying to protect you from being disappointed or getting hurt by others. Honestly, that voice had a purpose to protect when you were a child and when you had not developed your reasoning capabilities yet. But now you’re an adult with a fully developed brain and some life experience and you don’t need that voice. So it’s time to kick it to the curb. Ironically, it doesn’t like that you don’t need it anymore so it will fight to stick around and “protect you”. Its the subconscious’ tenacity that keeps us in unhealthy patterns which often sabotage our success…in any area of our life.
How to Drown Out Your Subconscious
- One of the best ways I have found to get rid of that voice is to drown it out with the voice of your heart. The voice of your heart is encouraging, inspiring, uplifting and purpose driven. While it may ask you to step out of your comfort zone, it always has your best interests at heart (pun intended LOL). The more you ask your heart voice to speak, the louder and stronger it gets. So much so that it will overpower the subconscious, ego voice. And before you know it, that voice will be buh-bye.
- Engage in active meditation to reprogram your subconscious mind with healthy beliefs and experiences. I use an active mediation technique called SRI and it has been super powerful in making sure a healthy voice is guiding my life. Feel free to message me below if you would like deets on this type of mediation. You can also check out these posts where I have outlined some active meditation techniques as well:
I am going to be honest with you. Learning to listen to your heart is going to take a little time and practice, but it’s a lifelong skill that you can use in every area of your life. You might find that you have a hard time trusting what your heart is telling you. The more you give your heart a chance, the more you will come to trust it. Sometimes it will give you very clear instruction and sometimes it will be vague…and maybe not even make sense in the moment. However, if you follow it, you will find the path it takes you will be much better than any other path for your life.
