Many people today are trying to change their lives for the better by focusing on what they want instead of what they don’t. Unaware of just how much control we have over our subconscious mind, most people will continue to believe that all these affirmations, visualizations, and journaling are useless and that you cannot engineer your life the way you want it to be.
If you’re someone who believes that your subconscious controls everything in your life, then you’ll know that there is a lot of truth in it.
In fact, it is your subconscious mind (or the ‘inner voice’ as some refer to it) that decides just how likely or unlikely certain events are in your life. Read on to discover more about how you can rewire your subconscious mind for greater health and wellbeing.
Know the power of your subconscious mind
Your subconscious mind is like a computer that stores every single thing that has ever happened to you. It can be compared to a self-updating operating system on a computer, except that your OS is not accessible to you. You can think of it as the place where your emotions and ‘command lines’ are stored.
When you’re feeling happy, sad, angry, excited, or scared, it’s the subconscious that’s responsible for that feeling. It’s also the place where you record your likes and dislikes, as well as your desires and hopes.
The subconscious mind is also responsible for your habits – including your eating habits and daily patterns. And finally, it dictates how you feel about yourself and your life circumstances. If you want to change your life and achieve more, you need to work with your subconscious and rewire it to support your goals and desires.
Visualization is a key to rewiring your subconscious mind
There have been many studies on visualization and how effective it can be for achieving goals. There are also a lot of people who have been able to completely change their lives using this technique. This is why visualization is such an important aspect of programming and rewiring your subconscious mind.
This technique works because when you see yourself achieving a goal or overcoming a challenge, your subconscious accepts this ‘visual’ information and begins working towards that goal. When you visualize something, it’s as if you are programming your mind to accept that this is happening and to begin moving towards that goal.
Visualizing yourself being healthy, happy, and achieving all of your goals can be one of the best ways of reprogramming your mind. By visualizing what you want, you’re programming your subconscious to support those goals and desires. All you need to do is sit down in a quiet place and focus on what you want. Imagine what it would be like if you already had that goal or was already healthy.
What do you see, smell, taste, and feel?
You can also try visualizing yourself in an environment that is associated with a change in your health or wellbeing. What would a healthy lifestyle look like? What would a healthy person look like? What would healthy food look like? What would your daily life look like?
Keep a gratitude journal
More than likely, you’ve heard of positive thinking, visualization, and journaling before. But did you know that keeping a gratitude journal can help you rewire your subconscious mind for greater health and wellbeing?
When you write down all the things that you’re grateful for, including your health and wellbeing, you are reprogramming your subconscious mind to accept these things as facts. You are telling your subconscious that you are healthy and that you deserve it.
By doing this, you’re connecting your conscious desires with your subconscious mind. You’re telling your subconscious that you are already healthy and that you deserve it. And with time, it will start to believe you.
Write down your goals and use the ‘when-then’ technique
The ‘when-then’ technique is a great way of rewiring your subconscious mind to support your goals and desires. This technique involves writing down a goal/desire and then connecting it with a specific ‘when-then’ situation.
For example, if you want to make healthier eating choices, you can state your goal as “When I go to the grocery store, then I will only buy healthy food.” In order for this technique to work, you need to write down your ‘when-then’ goal.
This way, your subconscious mind is actively involved in the process. It knows what you’re trying to achieve and is ready to support your goal as soon as you implement it in real life. Keep in mind that your subconscious mind is not very literal. You do not need to be overly specific when it comes to your ‘when-then’ goal.
Meditate every day
Meditation has become a very popular practice in the 21st century, and with good reason. It has the ability to entirely transform your life, and the lives of many others. It can be challenging to rewire your subconscious mind when you have a busy schedule, but meditation can help.
Meditation is a very effective tool for rewiring your subconscious because it allows you to focus your attention on one thing and ignore everything else.
When you meditate, you are actively reprogramming your subconscious and training it to support your goals and desires. You can either keep a specific goal in mind while you’re meditating or focus on gratitude and appreciate your life.
Alternatively, you can also use guided meditations, especially if you’re a beginner. By using a guided meditation, you’re allowing someone else to program your subconscious mind on your behalf.
Stop Telling Yourself You’re “Sorry”, “Bad”, or “Disappointed”
If you keep telling yourself that you’re being ‘bad’ or that you ‘shouldn’t’ do something, your subconscious will start believing it. You are actively reprogramming your subconscious mind when you use words like these.
You are telling your subconscious mind that you’re a bad person and that it should feel bad. That’s why you don’t feel good when you use these words and phrases.
You may not even be aware of the fact that you’re constantly doing this, but if you are, you can use this knowledge to rewire your subconscious mind and reprogram it to support your goals and desires.
Stay in the present moment
The present moment is the only thing that is certain. It’s not something that is guaranteed to last, but it’s there right now.
However, many people are not present in their lives because they have a lot of regrets, they are thinking about the past and what they could have done differently, and they are worrying about the future and what they have to do. A lot of people are stuck in this ‘time’ of the past or future, and they forget to be present in their lives.
When you’re present, you are actively in control of your life and you are rewiring your subconscious mind at the same time. You have the power to rewire your subconscious mind and to take control of your life. You just need to be aware of the fact that you have this power and you need to actively use it. You need to actively work towards changing your life, and you need to actively rewire your subconscious mind.
Conclusion – How to Rewire Your Subconscious Mind for Greater Health and Wellbeing

You can decide how you want to live your life and how happy and healthy you want to be. If you want to change your life and achieve more, you need to work with your subconscious and rewire it to support your goals and desires.
