The subconscious mind is a conviction phenomenon, which means whatever you believe at the subconscious level becomes your reality. That is a fact whether the belief is true or not! The key is at the subconscious level that belief becomes your conviction. In other words, all that matters is that the subconscious mind be convinced of a belief and it feeds back into your conscious life. It will in fact, work to create the conviction in your conscious life, because it is in fact, a blueprint in the subconscious mind. This process of creating your life then starts with your own imagination. Ask yourself the question, what do I want to be?
The answer, or the image you formulate to that question, is the first step of the Hypnotic Formula, thought. When you answer that question and attach your strong belief that it is within your capability to be whatever it is you decide, you have begun to move into step two of the Hypnotic Formula. At this point, it is crucial to practice the method of self-hypnosis, or another form of meditation that will move you into that state of hyper-relaxation. It is in this state that you will eventually access the subconscious mind and pass the image of what you want to be, in either a recorded patter or in the form of a mental image. The repetitive process of self-hypnosis will eventually change your belief and conviction at the subconscious level. This is what you want, because it is at this point, you will notice your thought habits and action habits become automatic.
Now let me explain the reason for wanting to use the Hypnotic Formula and self-hypnosis for creating behavioral changes. Your mind is divided into two parts, the conscious mind and the subconscious mind. Between the two minds is a barrier which is called the critical faculty. The critical faculty is the part of your conscious mind that allows you to be critical of certain thoughts that may enter your conscious mind. It is the area in which we can talk ourselves out of anything. In other words, if you want to aspire to be an artist, your critical faculty may talk you right out of it with statements like “I can’t draw”, “Who do I think I am”, “artist, that’s for someone else not me”… and so on. So you can see the path to the subconscious is guarded, but if you know how to gain access, you have the power to change anything you want.
This is where the Hypnotic Formula comes into practice. First you must decide what you want. You must believe it is probable, not possible, but probable that you can achieve it. Then you attach an emotional conviction to the belief and it not only becomes probable, it is exactly what you will achieve! Adapt the best method for yourself, to take you into the hypnotic state necessary to relax the critical faculty. It is when you are in the hyper-relaxed state that the critical faculty diminishes and you have access to your subconscious mind. The world, as the saying goes, is in the palm of your hand at that moment. Well, your world is for sure. Because when you have access to the subconscious mind, you have the ability to plug into your servo-mechanism anything you desire.
