Change your mindset, change your life. This saying might be cliché, but it is very, very, true. Our minds are powerful things. We have the power to shape our reality through our thoughts. Oftentimes, this can be a challenge to shift out of one old way of thinking. That is because change is hard. It takes work, like many rewarding things in life. If you are looking to reprogram your mind, we have some tips on how to do so. Read on for our helpful guide!
Adopt Empowering Beliefs Our minds are powerful manifesting tools.
If you ever have heard the phrase, our thoughts create our reality, then you know how true this statement is. While our subconscious minds often drive our realities, we can influence these deeper beliefs by choosing to focus on positive thoughts and affirmations. Adopting empowering beliefs can slowly begin to shift our subconscious minds. This is because due to repetition of saying these positive affirmations or having these empowering beliefs, we are reprogramming and rewiring our minds.
A helpful tip is to create a list of empowering beliefs, words, or phrases that you wish to incorporate into your life. Write these out on note cards and place these throughout your home. Make sure these are visible in places you would normally see them, such as the bathroom mirror or on your fridge door. This way, you are constantly reminded of these beliefs. This trick can help speed up the process of rewiring your brain. Embrace the beauty of uncertainty, one of the biggest mistakes in reprogramming our minds is the idea of control. What this means is, we often try to control specific outcomes in our lives. We plan for what is next, which can often lead to disappointments, as we hold onto these expectations we create in our minds.
This can cause frustration and sadness, aiding in this lower vibration and mindset when our expectations don’t get met. Letting go of control and embracing uncertainty is a helpful step in reprogramming our minds. Once we embrace uncertainty, we can flow with more ease through life. This is because we lower our expectations, which can be the main cause of unhappiness. Embracing the constant changes of life, we are more open and accepting to the unexpected. Focus on Gratitude
Remember this mantra, 'your attitude is gratitude'. Gratitude is a crucial key to reprogramming your mind. Our thoughts and feelings are interlinked. Whether the feelings influence the thoughts, or the thoughts influence the feelings, there is a connection between the brain and heart. The feeling of gratitude is the feeling that can unlock the blockages from our subconscious mind. Focusing on the feeling of gratitude, we go from a lack mindset to one that is positive and full of appreciation for the things currently in our lives.
An easy exercise is to start a gratitude practice. Either at the start or end of your day, make a list of the things you are grateful for. It may be a small list at first, with only a few items, but doing this daily, you will begin to see your list build as you become more aware of all the things in your life that are blessings. Visualise the last step to reprogramming your mind is visualisation. Visualisation is a great way to reprogram your mind and belief systems. This is because it again connects the mind to the heart, stimulating great changes to our energetic frequency. When visualising, imagine the way you want to be living your life. Really paint a picture in your mind so you can feel it in your heart.
A little bonus to visualising is to have crystals during the process. This way, you are utilising the crystal’s energy while reprogramming your mind. If you are wishing to reprogram and bring in certain qualities, here are some crystals to help with that.
Reprogramming for peace to aid in a more peaceful mindset, use crystals that connect with the third eye chakra. This chakra connects to the mind, helping to bring more clarity, focus, wisdom, and thus, peace. A great stone for this is amethyst. However, there are other stones that connect to peaceful energies, such as blue lace agate, fluorite, and celestite.
Reprogramming for Love To bring in feelings of love, reprogram with crystals that connect to the Heart Chakra. The heart chakra is located at the center of our chests and is associated with love, empathy, and compassion. Stones that connect to this energy are rose quartz, pink opal, kunzite, and green aventrine.
Reprogramming for happiness to connect to feelings of joy, happiness, and overall positivity, try visualising and meditating with stones that connect to the Solar Plexus Chakra. This chakra is located above our naval and is associated with our personal power and solar ‘self’ energy. Stones that resonate strongly with this frequency are citrine, sunstone, and tiger’s eye.
There are many other crystals that can be used to reprogram your mind (and energy field). You can find a list of crystal descriptions on our site.
