The mind is a very powerful thing. It is made up of two parts: the conscious and the subconscious. The conscious mind is the part you know you are using. When you are calculating a sum or talking to a friend, you are fully aware of what you are doing. The subconscious mind is the part that is responsible for our intuition, our dreams and where we store all of our long-term memories.
The subconscious mind is more powerful than you might think. It contains, not only memories, but negative or limiting beliefs that you’ve picked up during childhood. These limiting beliefs are things that you believe about certain things or situations that can have a negative effect on your life, without you being consciously aware of them. The strongest limiting beliefs were imprinted on your subconscious when you were just a small child. You wouldn’t have even been aware of it, at the time. These beliefs came from authority figures such as parents or teachers. You may have heard these people say things and, because you trusted these people, you believed these things. One example is a parent constantly telling you that ‘money doesn’t grow on trees’. You may think this is a harmless phrase that doesn’t mean anything; however, if you were constantly told this as a child, it could be the reason you have no money now.
