“Mind Nurtures Dynamic U
So U Nurture Mind with Positive View”
To understand the power of the Mind, it is essential to first know how the mind actually works. The mind works at two levels – conscious and subconscious. Your conscious mind works according to your thinking; where as the sub-conscious mind is the seat of your emotions, which is the creative mind. Whatever is thought habitually, it tends to sink into the subconscious mind. The law of the subconscious mind works for good and bad ideas alike. Your sub conscious mind is quite sensitive to your thoughts. When this law is applied in a negative manner, it brings about failure, frustration and unhappiness. However, when your thinking is more positive, harmonious and constructive, you experience success, prosperity and perfect health. Whatever you claim mentally, the sub conscious mind will accept and bring forth into experience. The only thing necessary is to get the sub conscious mind to accept the idea or whatever thoughts are conveyed to the sub conscious mind.
How the sub conscious controls all functions of the body
When you are awake or asleep, the tireless action of the sub conscious mind controls all the vital functions of the body. For ex: when you are asleep, the heart continues to beat in rhythm, the process of inhalation and exhalation continues just as the same way as you are awake. However, the conscious mind interferes with the functions of the body such as heart rate, lungs, stomach and intestine by way of worry, anxiety, fear and depression. These repetitive patterns of thought interfere with the harmonious functioning of the sub conscious mind. Therefore, speaking to the sub conscious mind, giving it suggestions and commands will allow the functions of the body to get back to normal again. Whatever thoughts are conveyed to the sub conscious mind, impressions are formed in the brain cells. As soon as the sub-conscious mind accepts any idea, it starts to put it into effect immediately.
How to get the sub-conscious mind working:
1. Through Creative Visualization technique
“A picture is worth a thousand words”. The easiest way to formulate any idea is to visualize it mentally, in the mind’s eye as vividly as possible. What you form in your imagination is as real as any part of your body. This process of visualization involves creating images that convey a strong positive message. The image of what you want to see in yourself. For ex: Imagining walking on your own or writing on your own without any support. Imagining you are in good health and prosperity. Imagining that you are stable and not progressing in your illness. Imagining that your health is improving every single day, that you are stable and not deteriorating in your illness will help you to restore your health.
2. Positive Affirmations
Affirmations simply mean choosing your thoughts consciously to create positive results in the future. These are statements that you say out loud or quietly repeat to yourself. According to the research on brain functions, saying these affirmations affect the Reticular Activating system, the part of the brain which tells us what to pay attention to and what not to. It is an effective technique to reprogram the mind in a more positive way. Some of the affirmations for health are described as follows:
Every day in every way I am getting healthier and feeling better and better.
Every cell in my body is health conscious.
Every passing day, my body becomes more energetic and healthy.
I breathe deeply, exercise regularly and feed only nutritious food.
I am perfectly healthy in body, mind and spirit.
My mind and body are in perfect unison.
3. Goal Setting
Setting goals gives a direction to our efforts. It is important to decide what health goals you want to achieve and in what period of time. And setting of goals should be SMART.
SPECIFIC – Each and every small goal should be clear and be specified. For ex: You want your hands to start moving so that you can perform upper head activities.
MEASURBLE – A goal that can be measured after a certain period of time. For ex: you can walk with the walker for 10 minutes now. So the goal can be – You want to walk with the walker for 30 minutes in the next 3 months.
ATTAINABLE – The goal that is set should be within your reach.
RELEVANT – It should be relevant to your current physical condition.
TIME – It is extremely important to set a time limit for the goals – both short-term and long-term goals. For ex: “You want to start walking with the walker so that you can go back to your work in the next 1 year.”
