Do you have any weird phobias?
I do. For some reason, I instantly feel sick to my stomach whenever I smell fish. Cooked or raw. Alive or dead. Just the smell makes me nauseous.
So, no, I won’t eat even the “best” trout, tuna or salmon. Ever since I got violently ill my friend’s mom cooked up the tiny rock bass we caught when I was just ten years old, I have a fish phobia that lives deep inside my brain.
Just like a phobia, you too have things working in your subconscious mind for good or for ill. To help you or to harm you.
Your subconscious mind stores your beliefs, previous experiences and memories that trigger reactions. Everything you’ve seen, thought and done gets stored there. It's guiding you, even when you’re not aware of it.
AND your subconscious, even when asleep, monitors and controls things like digestion, breathing, heart rate and how you sleep.
This part of the brain operates 24/7/365 and its certainly no overreach to say that your subconscious mind has HUGE influence on you every single day.

Your subconscious you will follow the orders you give based on what your conscious minds tells “them” is true.
So, when you say to your subconscious mind things like
Your subconscious mind listens and obeys. “OK, Captain. I can’t afford it. I will blow it….”
INSTEAD OF JUST ACCEPTING, what if you to intentionally fill your mind with a better message? Speak to your own subconscious and order a new message.
"You've got this!"
"You have what it takes!"
"You are gifted!"
In the Bible Paul wrote,
“Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.”(Philippians (4:8)
Your “Captain Conscious” gets to choose what to belive. Decide and send the message to the subconscious brain and let that become your deep truth:

Make your own list!
I actually have my list pop up on my phone as a reminder at 8:09 every morning. (Feel free to copy, borrow or steal that idea! Just put it into your phone as an alarm or pop up!)
What might you speak to your subconscious today?
Have a great day!
