Our subconscious mind will always give us what we want even though we may not think so at the time.
I had another client – a 64 year old, very quiet lady who came to me. She was a great believer that the mind creates everything that happens to you and wanted to know why she would have the broken wrist at this time when she was so busy and stressed.
That morning that Isobel came to see me she had walked into a plate glass door. I thought she was very lucky she only had a suspected fracture of the wrist! She looked terrible. She was white, her face was drawn and I thought she was probably still in shock, however despite the suspected fracture she would not go for x-rays until she had found out the reason for her ‘accident’.
It seems that she had been looking after her mother who had been very ill for many years and it was starting to get Isobel down mentally, emotionally and physically. Her mum needed care 24/7 and my client was exhausted.
As we worked together it was clear that Isobel needed a break from her mum – she was worn out with the caring of her but felt trapped by her mother’s needs. She loved her too much to put her into a nursing home but could not manage to look after her any more either.
While her mother needed her help Isobel needed a ‘break’ from it all. And this is exactly what her mind gave her – her break in her wrist was just enough to prevent her being able to look after her mum.
Because the subconscious mind cannot judge between a’ break’ meaning time out and a ‘break’ of the wrist, her mind heard her loud and clear and delivered her a break but not in the manner that she thought. It meant that she could no longer look after her mother and was forced to put her in a nursing home – which in the long term proved to be the best thing for both of them.
So listen very carefully to the words you use – they may be expressed in a way that you don’t expect!
Both fortunately and unfortunately the subconscious mind behaves just like a computer – what you get out is what you put in.
It is also fortunate because once you have an illness or problem we can get our subconscious mind to clear out negative thoughts, beliefs and emotions so that we can have our desired health.
Here is one great little exercise you can do so that you get clarity.
Decide that you will stand tall and that if you ask your mind a question you will get the answer ‘yes’ by swaying forward and if you sway backward the answer is ‘no’. You can now do the following exercise to get some insight into your mind:
- Work out a question that requires a ‘yes’ or ‘ no’ answer.
- Stand up
- Stand tall
- Ask yourself that question
Your subconscious mind will give you either a ‘yes’ or a ‘no’ answer.
A question could be:
Is this cold something to do with my work?
Is this cold something to do with my house?
Is this cold something to do with my partner?
Is this cold something to do with a member of my family?
Your inner child may be giving you a cold so that you don’t go to work now as a 40 year old!
You can ask anything you wish to ask as long as you remain in neutral, i.e. you do not anticipate what the answer will be. Your subconscious mind will give you the answer.
Always remember that the subconscious mind does not judge and cannot tell the difference between what we thought when we were a youngster and what we are thinking now – it just reacts. So you may be surprised at the answers you get.
Tell us, have you had a message or sign from your subconscious mind before?
