The Science Behind It

The Science Behind AviatrixMind Coaching Techniques

"It is the power of the mind to be unconquerable." – Seneca

What is your subconscious mind?

Subconcious/noun: the mental activities just below the threshhold of consciousness.

Simply put, your subconscious mind is controlling everything in your life that you are not currently actively thinking about. In fact your subconscious mind is making 95% or more of your decisions automatically before you become aware of them.

50 bits. That’s how much information your conscious mind can process. Your subconscious mind can process 11,000,000 bits of information coming in from all around you. That's a lot of work your subconscious is doing for you behind your awareness. But what is your subconscious doing with all that information? It's sorting the information, checking it against what is stored, and sending back what it thinks is useful to you. What's useful? It depends on how it was programed. The programing comes from your experiences, and that programing mostly happened before you reached age 6. Most of your beliefs about yourself and the world around you were hard coded into you long ago.

How your mind creates your identity, your reality, and sometimes wrecks your life.

Your subconscious is your reality, it can even control time perception! Your subconscious mind has the huge task of storing all the information about your identity, how you fit in the world, and holding it firmly in place. When it detects a threat to your safety or your identity it reacts instantly to move you into action. This is fantastic if say, a ball is flung at your face. Your subconscious can send the signal to duck your head or catch it before you are consciously aware of the incoming ball of doom and save you from an inconvenient head injury.

It's not so fantastic when it shuts down your mental performance. Your subconscious can overwhelm your conscious mind with thoughts like:

"What if I fail?"
"I could lose everything"
"People are going to see through me"
"They were right, I'm not good enough"
"I can't get ahead"
"Everything is against me"
"I can't do this"
"I'm just not smart enough"

This is called "Amygdala hijacking". (The amygdala is an area of your brain that processes emotion, and it prioritizes fear.) It happens when you try to do something that your subconscious has decided conflicts with your identity. It’s a glitch in your program. Your subconscious is trying to protect you from threats similar to ones encountered in your past. But keeping you safe has come with the cost of destroying mental performance and productivity.

How much control do you really have over your reality? Can the glitches in your subconscious programming be fixed?

Your subconscious programming happened when you were a young child. Some events that were emotionally charged or repeated frequently during that time form glitches in your subconscious that are not true. When you think of them consciously and rationally you know they are not true. Your subconscious doesn't care. They are hard wired into your subconscious and it uses them to distort your reality and hijack your thoughts and emotions. Changing the hard wiring in your mind can seem like an impossible task when facing these glitches.

A new science is proving how powerful your thoughts are and your thoughts effect your genes and your reality. Scientists used to think your DNA was fixed. Epigenetics is the emerging study of how you environment (including your thoughts) alter you gene expression and the health or disease state of your body. Your thoughts have the power to change your DNA expression and your thoughts have the power to heal the glitches in your subconscious as well.

Why getting outside help works better than banging your head against the wall of change.

"We can't solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them." – Albert Einstein

You are bad at making habit changes that are not compatible with your subconscious identity. You are bad at predicting how long it will take you to make those changes. You are also bad at performing any task your subconscious doesn't identify with. We all are.

Willpower, positive thinking, and mantras alone are not enough to eliminate glitches in your subconscious mind. It takes and average of 66 days to change one small habit on your own. A big one? 254 days! Most people quit before the change occurs. Do you have time to spend 66 days on each small habit change? I didn't think so. What about the time you’ve already spent trying to change your habits? Want to get that time back?

To fix the glitches and get your time back you're going to need some help from outside your subconscious programing.

Everything gets recorded by your subconscious and it accepts or rejects it as part of your reality. What you see, hear, smell, touch, taste, and think all enters your subconscious and it doesn't file your thoughts differently from the rest. What you imagine, what you say about your self, and the words you use are all recorded and stored as real things. Your subconscious treats all information the same, it only accepts what it believes is true or rejects the untrue according to its programming.

Science proves your thoughts can improve your health, increase your mental abilities, change your body chemistry, and yes, reprogram your subconscious to do what you want. To change the thoughts, actions, and new habits you want from an untruth to a truth you need the right tools to reprogram your subconscious.

End the Hustle and Struggle cycle! Get your mind on your side.

Your brain is 2% of your body, yet it requires 20% of your energy to function. You only have so much mental energy each day to spend. Remember the 50 bits of conscious information you can focus on at one time? It takes at least 3 times more energy to focus consciously on 50 bits than subconsciously on 11,000,000 bits. Conscious thought is a valuable limited resource that must be used intentionally to have max mental performance and productivity.

You've felt the mental exhaustion that comes from learning, working, and existing under stress. When you make a conscious decision it uses mental energy. When you resist doing something your subconscious wants you to do it uses mental energy. When you try to change a habit rooted in your subconscious programming it takes a lot of mental energy. The only way to save mental energy and increase mental performance is to change a decision, habit, or goal from being a conscious decision to a subconscious automatic one.

Your choice: Struggle to focus on 50 bits or allow 11,000,000 bits to work for you. The more you delegate to your subconscious, the more time and brain energy you have to spend on creating and enjoying the life you have right now! That is time well spent. That is making your time abundant!
