Talking to yourself is ‘the’ way

This morning before my day really kicked in, I was scanning my Facebook wall for interesting content, when I came across a blog from my friend Anna Lang (


It reminded me of a recent blog of mine and one that triggered a longer memory somewhere deep in my random little head and I searched it out for you. Thomas Turner shared back in 2009 and is a specialist in cognitive re-imprinting and hypnotherapy. Enjoy.


In today’s negative world, having a positive outlook on life can do wonders for you. It can literally change your life if you’re consistent. Many people understand this fact, but still struggle to make it work.

Their subconscious mind still keeps sending those negative thoughts to dwell on. How can you reprogram your subconscious mind for positive results? Here are the top five ways to reprogram your subconscious mind.

1. Positive Self-talk

This is the key to changing your life. You need to believe you are a better person. You need to understand that the only thing holding you back is YOU! So, the way you start is by being positive. Listen to your inner self-talk, and realize when you are being negative or putting yourself down.

Change your “I can’t…”, “I don’t know how…”, and “I’ll never be…” to positive self-talk like “I can…”, “I will…”, and “I am…” This seems simple, and ultimately it is. This simply first step will start to change your life for the better.

2. Visualise Your New Positive Life


Start by lying down in a quiet place. Turn off the lights to avoid any distractions. Now, take deep breaths, and tense up your entire body. Then, one body part at a time starting from your toes, relax that body part.

Once you are starting to feel relaxed, visualise yourself in the position you want your life to end up. Make sure to include yourself in these visualisations. It’s important that you make these images as real as possible for your subconscious to believe in what you are trying to accomplish. Once you feel at peace, move onto step 3.

3. Know What You Want

You have to know what you want out of yourself and your life. Not knowing where you’re going or what you are working for makes it hard for you to know which path you need to take to get there.

After you know what you want, focus on one want at a time. Accomplish that want then move on to a new want. This will allow for greater success. After you do all this move onto step 4.

4. Come Up With Some Affirmations

Affirmations can do you a world of good. The reason that they usually don’t work for some people is because they forget to do them consistently. Find a way to remind yourself and you will succeed.

5. Use Your Other Senses

Don’t just write them down once and forget about them. Write them out as often as possible. There’s something about actually writing them out that helps clarify things in your mind. It reprograms your subconscious to help you get what you really want. Write them down every day and you will supercharge your effectiveness.

Reprogramming your subconscious mind with these 5 easy steps, you will be able to see your accomplishments on paper, hear it in the affirmations, you will feel it in your visualization, it won’t be long until you make all of your wants from pictures, images, and your imagination into a reality. Your mind is a powerful tool we should all use. It these steps will make it as simple as 1, 2, 3, 4, 5!
Now that is worth thinking about!
