A storyline to all things around you is important.


Think about your car. It must have a design that is functional yet serves a very practical purpose for you. It helps you move from point A to point B and make your life comfortable. Its color represents your style and the way you handle is reminiscent of your lifestyle.


Now, think of your thoughts and ask yourselves the following questions?

1-     Who designs them?

2-     Are they functional?

3-     Are they positive or negative?

4-     Do they define my lifestyle?

5-     Do I hold any control over them?

Similarly, isn’t your internal storyline equally important?


This question and many more have been answered in the book, the power of your subconscious mind by Dr. Joseph Murphy.


If these questions are answered with utmost honesty, you can begin to understand the realm of your subconscious mind. Howsoever your thoughts, positive or negative, have a bearing on your lifestyle. To design them responsibly is also in your control. Every thought you create comes from a decision that YOU made. No person, place, or thing is responsible for the outcomes of your thought process.


To give an example, the power of your subconscious mind can help you process the following events in your life in a healthy manner.


Your neighbor parking his car AGAIN in front of your house, the cashier at the bank being impolite or your colleagues not being appreciative of your hard work, all these instances in a normal day can have an impact on your mood and hence, your health. To think afresh and approach these events for what they are, which is outrageous, is the only way you should look at them.


This is the crux of the book – The Power of by our subconscious mind by Dr. Joseph Murphy. An easy read that you could finish in one sitting, it is written in a style that resonates with your psyche and encourages you to act on your thoughts instantaneously that may be holding you back to lead a healthy life.


There is ample literature out there with conclusive proof that your self-talk holds a lot of validity. It affects your mental health as well as physical. When the thoughts become aggressively negative, they need an outlet. That outlet is exhibited in the form of a physical ailment that could range from acidity to heartburns or acid reflux says the author in the book the power of the subconscious mind.


This information could also be something that you are already privy to.


The question then arises, how do you handle your thoughts?

The answer is simple. Repeated affirmations. Just repeat to yourself a thing that’s bothering you so much that it no longer 



Think of it like this, that persistent thought that makes you anxious is responsible for your misery. You are repeating that in your mind twenty-four seven and losing sleep over it.


Time to try the opposite now! Acknowledge this pattern and repeat it the other way around now.


From I can’t make this presentation to I am the best presenter on the Earth!

Sounds silly?

Well, you telling yourself that you can’t make that presentation thousands of times in a day is equally preposterous.


The power of your subconscious mind teaches you to do this in a manner that encourages you to take control over the roller coaster of your thoughts and define a new life for you, free from your self inflicted negative mental chatter.



It’s time to bring about that change. Read the power of your subconscious mind on a lazy afternoon to design and master your thoughts and live a groovy life!
