I have read quite a few books on this topic The “power of the subconscious mind.” More than a decade ago I was introduced to a basic course on Neuro Linguistic Programming by a colleague of mine. That was beginning and from there on I started reading books and write ups on this topic. Even today its one of my most favored topic.
Recently, I happen to read a synopsis of a book THE BIOLOGY OF BELIEF by Bruce H. Lipton. Though initially looking at the cover page I thought it was something to do with Biology and Physics, as I was flipping through the pages, I realized it dealt with the mind. And how the cells of the human body reacted to the environment.
Watch this video by Bruce H.Lipton before you buy the book. This book is easily available on the Amazon marketplace.
The subconscious mind is million times more powerful than the conscious mind, and decides most of the things in our lives according to the beliefs it has..
Many times we fail to change an unpleasant habit despite our will-power and consistent efforts..
It’s because the habit has been so strongly programmed in our subconscious mind that the efforts made by our conscious mind hardly make any difference.
*Conscious Mind is just a shadow* *of our Unconscious Mind..*
So, when the tribals of Solomon Islands curse a tree, they are actually installing negative and harmful beliefs in the tree’s emotion (yes, trees do have emotions too).
Within few days, those negative emotions becomes a belief & eventually changes the molecular architecture of the tree and kill it from inside..
2500 years ago, when the Buddha said that *‘You are what you think’,* he was not articulating a random philosophical theory.
Actually he was telling a scientific fact which is now proved correct by Quantum Physics and Molecular Biology.
The book has a special chapter on Conscious Parenting where it talks about the beneficial and harmful effects of what parents say to their children..
If you are a parent and you keep cursing your child in the name of constructive criticism, you are installing beliefs in their mind which will keep harming them forever..*
