Have you tried to change a bad habit, or try to motivate yourself, only to find out something deep inside your mind resisting? A basic law of the mind is working here:whenever the conscious and subconscious mind is at odds, your subconscious usually wins. This is the law of conflict.
People usually change their habits through will power or through self-discipline. While they do work in some cases, most of us fail miserably. Logic works well with the conscious mind, but it often does not with the subconscious. Meditation or subconscious programming helps the subconscious mind. The conscious and subconscious mind displays different aspect of our mind.
Dynamic meditation is a simple process that most of us can do. It doesn’t cost much or require too much effort, yet the outcome is persuasive. It simply combines suggestion and imaginative visualization in a relaxed state of mind. The first thing to do is simply get to relax and imagine the desired traits or circumstance. This is combined with affirmation or suggestion constructed in present tense.
To understand how the conscious and subconscious mind works, first we must understand the 4 states of the mind. We are in what is called the beta state for almost all of our waking hours. Our mind radiates these waves when we think, reason or engaged in some problem solving. As our brain waves slow down, we enter what is called the alpha state of mind. The portal in our conscious and subconscious mind is opened. This allows access to memories and storing new information. This is also often regarded as meditative state, in which the mind and body become so relaxed. We are also at our most suggestible state.
Below the two types of conscious states is the theta, this is the dream state, and delta, which is basically us in deep sleep or unconscious. At alpha and theta state our words have extremely increased power. These are the two areas where controlled meditation is focused.
Why does controlled meditation work on the conscious and subconscious mind? There are six reasons as the Rules of The Mind as professed by the late Charles Tebbets.
First, every thought or idea causes a physical reaction.The mind has the capability to make you sick or keep you healthy. Ideas with a strong emotional component almost will reach the subconscious mind.
Second, what’s expected to happen tends to be realized.The brain and the entire nervous system responds only to mental images, whether self-induced or from the surroundings. The image formed becomes the template, and the conscious and subconscious mind carries out the thought.
Third,Imagination rules. Imagination overcomes knowledge when dealing with the mind.Ideas accompanied by a strong emotion state like anger or love cannot be modified through reason.
Fourth, Conflicting ideas cannot be kept simultaneously.Many people try to hold opposing ideas at the same time.
Fifth, Once an idea has been accepted by the conscious and subconscious mind, it will remain until another idea comes to fore.The longer an idea is held, the more it takes a hold of the mind. Forming into a habit or belief system .
Sixth, Emotionally induced sign tends to cause physical change if held onto long enough. We are a mind in a body and just like the conscious and subconscious mind the two cannot be separated.
This simple and safe process of controlled meditation combined with faith, hope, and passion, this allows for a healthier conscious and subconscious mind.

Can we look deeper within ourselves? Can we see that many times our judgements happen due to our
vested interest, when a personal desire goes unfulfilled? If the very same situation would had happened to someone else, then perhaps we may not have judged it the way we did. However when the mind experiences a personal loss, then it is quick to judge, have you noticed this? Many times we judge the acts of others, yet when the same act is committed by us, we are completely accepting of ourselves. This happens to the best of us – this is ego and attachment at play…Read more >>>>Many times we judge the acts of others, How can we not judge!.
Learn Mind Power – The Real Secrets
You probably didn’t know it, but your mind is actually far more powerful than you think. Like a magnet, what it sees and thinks it will eventually bring to itself. This is something called the ‘Law of Attraction’. What the law of attraction basically states is that if you believe something, it’s going to happen.
The law of attraction is basically the act of believing something is going to happen so strongly that it does. You can have the best life if you want it, but you have to be able to think it, feel it, and envision it first. This may take some practice, but success only comes with persistence in any endeavor. The power of the mind is amazing.
Most people do not realize how powerful their mind is. According to research, people only use 10% of their actual brain power. That means 90% is going to waste! Instead of believing in our mind power, we stick with what we know and take the easy way.
This is part of the reason that we have trouble in life. We think negative thoughts because we do not believe that the positive can happen. We just continue to attract negativity. The reality is that when we think that way then it will happen.
First, understand that ‘reality’ is within your mind. Whatever you’ve got to this point has been because of your subconscious mind power. A lot of people think that everyone has extra sensory or psychic powers. But you have to make an effort for these powers to come out. Your mind power is real; just choose to use it.
If you want something better out of life, you just have to visualize it.and this works in reverse, too. People who expect the worst, get the worst.
A few things you can do may help you to increase your mind power. One thing you can try is a technique called visualization. This is a powerful technique that will let you exercise your mind. It can even lead to you gaining more mind power.
When you visualize, what you do is to sit down and create pictures and images inside your mind’s eye. Doing so is going to bring these images to life in your own reality, but first, you have to start by thinking about it. You need to get your subconscious mind involved, too, because your subconscious mind is very powerful when it comes to creating your own real-life from the images you see.
The subconscious mind is what will actually bring these images to life. Make sure the images you hold in your mind are positive images. Think a little bit about how you actually want your life before you begin your visualization practice.
You might try this: Write everything down on a piece of paper, either as a list or as though you were telling a story. What goals do you have for yourself? Then, create what you visualize around these goals. Writing these things down will make it hard for you to simply ignore them another day. Try doing this several times a day at first until what you’re doing becomes ‘real’ to you.
You can also use affirmations to increase your mind power. Affirmations are simply little, encouraging positive sayings that you can save yourself throughout the day. It can be about anything. For example, if you want to lose 10 pounds, you can say something to the effect of, ‘I’m losing the extra weight effortlessly and easily.’ As you continue to say this, you may notice that truly, the weight is actually coming off pretty easily. It’ll just naturally start to happen.
Positive things will happen if you think positive. Just remember it also works the same way with negative thoughts.
Another option is to use brainwave entrainment to develop your mind power. This is done through the synchronization of brainwaves using different frequencies through audio technology. The brain is an amazing thing in that it can do more than one thing at a time. Using advanced audio technology you can improve your minds power to heal.
You can also enhance your memory and bring into effect the psychic powers you have, which already exist. This is a pretty advanced procedure, but it does work.
Again, literally everyone has this power, the power of the mind. It’s a matter of believing in your abilities and then working on developing them. Again, this isn’t likely to happen overnight, but it will happen if you stay focused. You can have the life you want. You can change your circumstances from bad to good, or your luck from bad to good. As you work on developing your mind power, you can then train it out into the universe for good, so that what you put out will manifest back to you in the positive, and is what you desire.
Remember everything starts with the subconscious mind. The only thing holding you back is your conscious mind!

- Meditation ~ Four Different States of Mind (mediumsworld.wordpress.com)
The mind operates at four predominant brainwave states or frequencies:
These different states are classified according to the speed of the predominant brainwave signals from one neurological point to another at any one point in time. This speed and frequency is measured in ‘Hertz’ and the figures are obtained using an Electrocardiogram (EEG) machine.
1. Beta: This is where our mind usually operates in daily life. In such a state we have full conscious awareness and attention of everything around us and usually only one side of brain is operating. Beta is usually typified by brainwave cycles of 15 to 40 Hz (cycles per second). Higher cycles of Beta Frequency usually equate to stress, anxiety and over thinking as the conscious mind becomes misguided or reacts negatively to a given situation. High brainwave beta frequency also equates to hypertension, increased heart rate, increased blood flow, cortisone production and glucose consumption. Generally speaking, you do not want to experience the high beta state too often if you are concerned about your health. (Some techniques are included later to ensure this does not happen)
2. Alpha: A mild daydream or light relaxation state. Operating in Alpha can be exemplified to when you are driving a car and just cruising around or when you get captivated into a good book and sort of lose track of what is happening around you. Meditation is usually aimed at achieving the Alpha state and the brain operates in cycles between 9Hz & 14Hz. Alpha is typified by partial conscious awareness and partial subconscious predominance at the same time. It is useful to absorb information when in Alpha and is considered to be highly desirable for more effective studying. Alpha promotes more of the left side of the brain to be used for processing.
3. Theta: A Deep relaxation state where the conscious mind is, for the most part, ‘switched off’, and the subconscious mind is left to flourish. This is usually typified by sleep, dreaming, and very deep relaxation and is where most hypnotists aim at taking their clients down to. Theta shows brainwave cycles operating at 5 Hz to 8 Hz. Theta is where ideas, visualizations and suggestion are more likely to enter the subconscious mind and consciously we become less aware of what is going on around us.
4. Delta: An Extremely deep relaxation/sleep state with complete subconscious operation. Delta is experienced in the deepest of sleeps and is interesting because it is proven that the physical body begins to recuperate and recover at a heightened level. You can be in waking delta if you are in an advanced state of meditation. This state is associated with ‘kundalini’ experiences. Delta is typified by slow brainwaves at 1Hz – 4Hz. It is interesting to note that a very skilled hypnotist, who can take the client into Delta, is able to perform such phenomena as using hypnosis as a replacement for anesthesia during various medical surgeries and this has been documented on numerous occasions medically and scientifically.
Natural and Artificial Manipulation Transition Between the Different States
Although the human mind naturally switches between the different states of mind according to the current environment, situation, people or happenings of the individual, it is possible to artificially stimulate the brain into the different levels. As an extreme example when we are involved in a serious accident or injury, people sometimes enter into a coma state. This is the brain’s way of performing an emergency response to automatically enter into the deepest realms of delta for heightened physical recovery, trauma protection and mental recovery. This is a very good example of the brain’s natural response to a situation where it lowers brainwave activity for instinctual protection means.
On the other hand, we can artificially induce a change in mental state for both positive and at times, not beneficial purposes. Stage hypnotists often invoke a sudden shift in brainwave frequency through a rapid hypnotic induction in the person to enter Theta for entertainment purposes. Although many people find this funny and it does illustrate the power of hypnosis, there is no real positive purpose in doing this other than to have a laugh. There are many examples of irresponsible use of these techniques for mass manipulation, and these are simply a tragic use of something that can be so powerfully used for positive change.
There are many ways to artificially invoke a person to operate at different brainwave frequency states. These include hypnosis, meditation, music and audio, massage, drugs, alcohol, yoga, pilates, video games, TV, driving, reading and many more. This can be very useful indeed. By learning the best way to lower your mind state to Alpha, Theta and even Delta, it is possible to create numerous positive emotional, mental and physical benefits. For instance hypnosis is fantastic to instate the client into theta and then responsibly use direct suggestion, which is more fully absorbed by one’s subconscious mind, to create permanent and lasting changes in the mind and body.
Meditation is also useful to achieve a light Alpha state wherein you can consciously process information and self suggestion to help change your emotions and feelings. Music and audio such as binaural beats, white noise, theta rhythm, nature recordings and other slow, repetitive trance inducing sounds can help you overcome insomnia and sleep better, perform self meditation, self hypnosis and achieve deep relaxation in the Alpha, Theta and at times, Delta realms. Deep relaxation on a consistent daily basis is proven to be advantageous for the mind and the body. It promotes clarity of thought, focus, better health and heightened mental, physical and emotional wellbeing.
In any case, if you are constantly stressed and operating in the high Beta levels, or if you never truly relax and hit Alpha and Theta except for a few hours a night when you sleep, then it is recognized that you will not be emotionally or physically reaching your optimum level of health. Worse still it really can have significant effects on your overall health. This is important to note. Therefore if you are too busy, stressed or have developed certain conditions which affect you from achieving consistent deep relaxation, you will benefit immensely from using some of the aforementioned techniques to help lower your brainwave frequency and achieve some relaxation. This really could change your life for the better in ways you never thought were possible.
