In this video, Mahatria highlights the underlying power of the subconscious mind and gifts us with 3 steps to develop a powerful subconscious mind. One-eighth of your mind is your conscious mind, but the other seven-eighths of it is your subconscious mind. Hence it becomes imperative to invest a lot of time and effort in empowering your subconscious as the return on investment is multi-fold.
One-eighth of your mind is your conscious mind and seven-eighth of your mind is your subconscious mind. Our entire focus and the education system in which we have grown, the entire focus is enhancing the abilities of the conscious mind. And I’m sure every day we encounter experiences, meet people, it amazes us at what they have achieved, what they have accomplished. Is it all because of just the conscious abilities, or can something be done about the subconscious?
So, my entire talk is going to be about, how do we get the subconscious right? Because if seven-eighth of our mind is subconscious and one-eighth of our mind is conscious… Just some time back, Govind was saying, “I kept visualizing this. And this moment is happening right now.”. That’s the power of visualization. This is not a conscious ability. So, what is that we need to do to develop a powerful subconscious mind?
The first and the foremost is, mixed associations. Whenever I desire for and against the same thing, it’s called mixed association. We are not talking about lateral thinking, we are not talking about a what-if analysis. But whenever I think for and against the same desire, it’s called mixed association. And to any aspiration of yours, if you have a mixed association, the seven-eighth of your mind does not go to work. You’re orphaned, you are deserted, you are left to only your conscious mind to pursue it, which means metaphorically you’re a factory of eight workers.
One worker is working relentlessly for the development, productivity of the factory and seven-eighth, are sitting idle and not doing anything. What is the productivity of this factory? Because this one-eighth has to also carry the load of the seven-eighth, which is not working right now! Anything to which you have a mixed association, you will find except creating inertia, indecisiveness, procrastination, there will never be momentum there. You will not have that impetus to propel things forward.
Whenever you think for and against the same desire, it creates mixed association. And for whatever you have mixed association, when this entire opportunity came and Govind was asked, “Would you like to chair the entire event?”, “Yeah, I want to chair the event. But I’m also feeling it’ll take a lot of my time from my business. So I’m not sure whether…”. If he had mixed association, this event is not a grand success that it is as of now. It cannot be. Either you take it or you leave it. To the subconscious, there is no cat-on-the-wall scenario. Anytime you are there on the cat-on-the-wall scenario, then nothing happens.
So one of the introspection that I want all of you to have is if there is something that you want to make it happen, but it’s not been happening, if there is some direction in which you want to progress, but you have not seen that progress, you just cannot understand, you have been planning and planning and planning for so many years, but you have not been able to take that first step forward till now… In all these scenarios, you’re looking outside. Why things are not happening and some of you are looking up, to find why God is not allowing these things to happen?
But I’m asking you to look inside and ask yourself this question. Do I have mixed association towards it? And without correcting it, nothing is going to happen. Nothing is going to happen. So, if you desire something and it has not been happening, the first cause, primary cause must be that you have a mixed association towards it. You are desiring for and against it. So, either drop it, or drop the thoughts that are against it and you will immediately see momentum. A momentum that you have been waiting for four years and five years and six years that’s not been happening. And you’ll see this entire shift happening in matter of months.
Even if the whole world believes in you, but if your subconscious does not believe in your goals, even God cannot help you. Even if no one in the world believes you, but if your own subconscious believes in you, God will not stop you. The goals are yours. A huge transformation is required. The power of the man is in the power of the mind. The power of the mind is in the power of the subconscious mind. The power of the subconscious mind is in the power of subconscious beliefs and the power of subconscious beliefs are built by making and honoring commitments. Promise by promise. Word by word.
Say it and do it. Say it and do it. Don’t start by saying next one year, every day I will practice yoga. Why? You know yourself. Why you make such commitments? This week, I will do it. There is a loophole in the system and it must be exploited. You say I will achieve hundred crores and you achieve hundred crores. You said it and did it. You say, “I will wake up by six o’clock.”. This is also say it and do it. Your subconscious doesn’t understand the value of your commitment. It only understands, if you say it, will you do it? Subconscious doubts are already built.
And if you have to neutralize the subconscious doubts that are already built in the key relationships around you or you, subconscious beliefs have to be built. Repeating one more time so that it gets etched into your system. The power of the man is in the power of the mind, the power of the mind is in the power of the subconscious mind, the power of the subconscious mind is in the power of subconscious beliefs and subconscious beliefs are built by making and honoring commitment.
Your subconscious does not understand positive emotions and negative emotions. It doesn’t know the difference between positive emotions and negative emotions. In the conscious mind, we feel love is better than hatred. Happiness is better than unhappiness. Success is better than failure. Having a relationship is better than losing a relationship. And these are all conscious judgment. Your subconscious does not understand the difference between a positive emotion and negative emotion. It only understands the difference between deep emotions and shallow emotions.
And that to which you associate deep emotions will continue to recur in your life. That to which you associate deep emotions, your subconscious will conspire the circumstances of life to cause the recurrence of the same. All negative emotions are inherently deep. By nature, sadness is deep. By nature, losing a relationship is deep. By nature, failure dents your ego, so it’s deep. So nobody has to train you.
Negative emotions by nature is deep and hence there is a pattern of negative emotions. Whenever things begin to go wrong in your life, you’ll find that it continues to go wrong. There is a pattern to what is going wrong in life because we get into this pattern of recursive negative emotions, deep negative emotions. This has to change. I’m not talking about just depth of happiness. I’m talking about depth of happiness when you’re sober.
Bringing in a celebration, depth of gratitude, depth of love, it’s not about love. It’s about expressive, demonstrative, visible love. Just bring about visible, demonstrative expressiveness to your love and see how many more beautiful people automatically come into your life. Find every little reason to celebrate. Childlike enthusiasm, childlike excitement. Essentially, I’m saying, you need to run your victory laps.
It’s not about winning. It’s about celebrating the winning with a victory lap. It’s not about achieving a goal. It’s about celebrating that goal. It’s not about reaching the target. It’s about celebrating it, bring in celebration into your life. Get your subconscious right, you get your mind right. When you get the mind of the man right, you get the man right. When you get the man right, you get the life right!
