If I had a dollar for every time during my fight with depression that I thought, “Don’t tell me to just think positively! It doesn’t work!,” I would have a lot of extra cash!!
The fact is, I was right and wrong with this belief. I was correct in believing that just thinking positively is NOT enough to change depression or anxiety. I was wrong to believe that positive thinking and speaking did not have (or would not have) a helpful effect on my life. I really believed there was nothing I could do but trudge through the depression and anxiety.
Deep inside of every human being are two minds: the subconscious and the conscious. According to Dr. Bruce Lipton and others, the subconscious mind is responsible for about 95% of the biology of our actions that play out in our everyday lives. Part of that biology is our beliefs. The way positive thinking and speaking can have a lasting impact is to get to the root of the belief that the subconscious mind plays out, day in and day out. And then a reprogramming from the conscious mind can take over, creating a space for increased positive experiences.
Dr. Lipton gives a great explanation of how this works.
My personal experiences with this concept over the past 4 years has given me a proven track record of change, of peace, of contentment, of freedom, of calm during the normal and “abnormal” storms of life. I would love to help you discover what your subconscious programming is and learn how to turn it into positive conscious reprogramming!
