Welcome back to another video. My name is Aaron, and I help people expand their consciousness. Now, this video is going to be about the most effective technique that I have found
for being able to influence the idea of our subconscious mind. I got this idea from a book that I read that was actually recommended by Dr. Wayne Dyer. It was in his book The Power of Intention,
I believe, that he recommended this book called The Feeling is the Secret.
It's all about the idea that before we go to bed every night if we condition ourselves
for the feeling of what we want to feel and the idea of what we want to create in our lives,
we then begin to change our life in a very powerful way.
"What I want to do in this video is help you maybe understand it from a point of the idea of science and infuse an idea in here that helps us understand maybe why that's true and then understand
a process that we can do to get ourselves to that state. Let me first off just share with you guys
that I have been doing this process for years now. It's one of the reasons that I meditate
the first 15 or 20 minutes of my day and the last 15 to 20 minutes of my day every single day.
I don't think I've missed a day in the last four or five years. It's something I find that if I do it right
in the morning, it leaks into the rest of my day to where because I'm observing my thoughts
and I'm not reacting it's like the rest of the day if something happens, I'm more able to control
my state of being rather than being affected by the environment. That's why I choose to do it then.
"Nonetheless, I want to explain this idea from understanding brainwave states.
There's four main brainwave states.
The first one is the most alert state, which is what's called a beta state.
Then we have a little bit deeper is the idea of an alpha state.
Then we have a theta state and a delta state. Delta is the most like we're asleep type state.
Then we have theta, which is very in between state.
Almost, we get there when we're in deep levels of meditation.
Then we have alpha state. Alpha state we're in when we close our eyes or are thinking of something or we are watching television. A lot of times we'll be in an alpha state.
That's why it's important to pay attention to what we're consuming
because that is a little bit closer to our subconscious mind than our beta state.
"The idea is that as we go to bed at night, we are shifting from a beta state to an alpha state
to a theta state to a delta state. These levels and these states are closer to the idea
of our subconscious mind. As we go to bed, we're shifting through those.
If we can control our state of being and condition our body for thinking in a certain way,
we then begin to have more effect over our subconscious mind. Then as we go to bed
and we wake up in the morning, a lot of times we'll wake up in a similar emotion or feeling
that we felt as we went to bed. One reason I like to meditate before I go to bed is because when
I wake up, I wake up in the same state. When I jump into meditation, I get to that state very easily.
"When we wake up in the morning, it's the same way in reverse. We are coming out of a delta,
then a theta, then an alpha, then a beta state. If we control our state of being for the first 10 or 15 minutes of our day, the idea is that we ease into these different states. Then we have a better feel over the rest of our day. Not just that. As we are in that window of time for when we wake up
in the morning, that is the most powerful time that we have to influence our subconscious mind.
"The same thing goes when we're going to bed at night. As we begin to go down
into the deeper levels, that is the time that we have to really influence our subconscious mind.
What can we be doing? This is something that I do right when I go to bed.
It might be 10 or 15 minutes before I fall asleep. I anchor in the idea of feeling gratitude
for whatever I want to create or for whatever I already have in my life.
As I begin to focus on those aspects, I find that it's almost like I condition my body for feeling more and more gratitude in my life. If I have certain beliefs that I have about myself or a certain self-image that I want to change, one of the ways I do that is I start to see myself in a completely new light.
"I imagine myself how would I want and prefer to be? What would I feel like if I were doing
the things that I prefer to do? How would I act? How would I move? As I begin to sink myself
with that version of me and as I begin to focus on it, I then begin to feel as if that were true.
That's one of the powerful parts of visualization is the mind doesn't know the difference
between what we are visualizing and what's actually happening if we do it enough.
That's what I begin to do. As I go to bed, I think about...
