Rewriting the subconscious is something most struggle with, mainly because they don’t truly understand how it functions. The subconscious operates very much like the hard drive in your computer; it is programmed via the repetition of certain experiences and behaviours. However, the subconscious is hundreds of times more powerful than the conscious mind and until you do the inner work to become conscious of what’s inside of it, then it will continue to control your life.
According to Dr Joe Dispenza, by the time we reach 35 years old, 95% of who we are as a personality is controlled by our subconscious mind. This means the conscious mind only has 5% of your energy to work with each day. This is why just thinking positive thoughts doesn’t work for most people, as their emotional state often contradicts their thoughts. To rewrite the programming of your subconscious, you have to change your emotional state on a consistent basis, not just your thinking.
Your state of being consists of how you act, think, feel, and believe to be most true, at any given moment. Our beliefs are the foundation of all our behaviour. Perception is power; it is essentially the blueprint for our personality and physical reality experience as a whole.
“Your personality creates your personal reality.”
─Dr Joe Dispenza
Your current life is a reflection of the energy you put out on a consistent basis. The external world, for the most part, is a mirror of your internal state. What you experience is your subconscious programming made manifest into form.
Defining your mental and emotional patterns as a program can help you more easily make the changes you desire. When you realise that most of your automatic thoughts and emotional reactions aren’t personal but habitual, then you won’t take them personally. You’ll begin to observe them impartially, separating yourself from them. The moment you observe a thought without allowing it to define you is when you liberate your consciousness from it. This is known by neuroscientists as Metacognition; you prune synaptic connections in the brain when you no longer believe in them.
According to neuroscience, the average person has around 80,000 thoughts per day and 90% of those thoughts are the same thoughts they had the day before. When one becomes conscious and lives in the meditative state for some portion of their day then the number of thoughts decreases as they embody inner stillness. The conscious management of your state of being is one of the keys to rewriting the program in your subconscious.
If you have fear-based beliefs hijacking your perception then you’ll attract, not only circumstances reflective of those beliefs but also signs and synchronicities as well. Responding differently to these signs which try and reinforce your conditioning is key to going beyond being defined by the program. I touch on this in my book, The Labyrinth: Rewiring the Nodes in the Maze of your Mind.
“Every time you respond differently to a circumstance or synchronicity attempting to reinforce an old belief; you’re dissolving the old self. Repetition rewires the subconscious; the more you react correctly to these illusions, the quicker you’ll dissolve your unconscious associations with them. Also, please remember to stay light-hearted throughout this process; it’s simply a game you’re playing with yourself. When you reach the point where you can laugh at the synchronicities trying to reinforce your old self, you’re on your way to blessedness.”

The majority of these programs were installed into your brain during the first seven years of your life. This is because the brain is in theta brainwaves during our first seven years, which are literally hypnotic. By observing our parents and siblings, watching the way they reacted, responded and behaved programmed us to mimic them.
One way of getting into the operating system of the subconscious and changing the blueprint is meditation and visualisation. I have a blog on mental rehearsal on my site, click here to read.
The state between sleep and waking is where the magic happens; in that state, you enter the quantum field; that timeless domain where all potential realities exist. If you’re capable of imagining another version of yourself or an experience you wish to have then what you’re imagining already exists in some reality in space-time. All you have to do is change your energy (your state of being) to match that reality and eventually, the outer world will bend to the changes you’ve made within yourself.
Here is another technique that’s also in my book. Neville Goddard, the Christian mystic who taught the Law of Attraction in the United States during the mid-twentieth century, often taught this to his students.
“As you lay in bed at night, before you sleep, lay flat on your back, and close your eyes. Now, can you imagine how you would feel if you were already free of the habit? How would you feel if you were the version of yourself you desire to be? What is their state of being? Can you attune to it? Remember, that linear time is an illusion; all versions of you already exist. Embody the state; feel what it would be like to be the person you prefer; think the thoughts you’d be thinking if you were that version. Imagine a friend, visualise them before you; converse with them in your imagination, hear their voice. Tell them that you used to have the habit and that you’ve overcome it, and that you’ll never go back to it again. Imagine them congratulating you; shake their hand, hug them, smell their hair as they embrace you. Visualise what would happen in the outer world if you were to become that version of yourself.
Fall asleep in the feeling of freedom and do it every night until you are. If you desire to be free of illegal substances, alcohol, pornography, or anything else you feel isn’t aligned with your integrity, fall asleep as that version of yourself. When you’re in bed in that lucid state between sleep and waking where you get beyond yourself, you’re in the domain of the Quantum Field. If you persist in falling asleep in the assumption of freedom, it eventually rewires the subconscious; thus, your beliefs and motivations automatically change.”

You can’t change your ego with the ego: or in other words, you can’t fix the subconscious with the limited 5% of the conscious mind. Consciousness is required and consciousness means self-awareness; be conscious of the thoughts, beliefs, emotions and habits which no longer serve you and modify them.
Once you change your energy on a consistent basis then your life will shift to reflect your new state. Make gratitude your heartbeat and appreciation your breath. Joy is your natural state, once you truly know this you’ll make the effort to embody it.
