The most important time to condition your subconscious mind is right before you go to sleep. If you noticed in the last hour before you hit the pillow your focus is not that sharp, you might start yawning and if someone will try to convey a complicated idea to you, that involves more than just a couple details, you will probably would have a challenge to grasp it and you would prefer to talk about it tomorrow.
The reason that all that is happening is because your mind is getting ready to move from a conscious state to an unconscious state, so you can fall a sleep. That stage is actually called hypnosis. (Definition of hypnosis)
Everyone goes through a stage of hypnosis just before going to sleep. When someone is in a stage of hypnosis their suggestibility is heightened, meaning that whatever they suggest to themselves i.e. thoughts, suggested by another, whether it's a book, a movie, T.V. spouse or you name it, it is pretty much going into the subconscious mind.
Like everything else in life there are pros and cons to that heightened state. I'll start with the less good news: When you allow an external source that you do not necessarily trust to suggest any kind of message or idea to you when you are in a state of hypnosis (BTW, it can be also when you drive the freeway and listen to the radio) what happens is that what you are hearing, viewing or seeing becomes the truth for you.
So it is best that you'll found out if the source is reliable and what is the source's agenda, by doing that you will actually take yourself out of hypnosis and you'll be awaken to what is really going on. And I am not talking about choosing a hypnotherapist, I am talking more about commercials that will suggest you buy things you don't need, too much bad news that will cause you to be depressed and your own repetitive mind chatter that you tend to beleive to.
The good news is that you can take advantage of this powerful mind of yours and at the time that you are going into a natural hypnotic state, the time that I mentioned earlier, right before you go to sleep, you can suggest to yourself whatever you desire to be, have or do in your life.
Here is how it works:
When we sleep our mind goes through 3 stages. Each stage has it's own importance. After all our mind's need to process the information that we gathered throughout the day. Our mind is an information processor. When we sleep, our mind's make order, it takes all the necessary information and stores it in to "folders". Yet it is not a ways storing the information where we want it to go. for example, if lately you have not been doing financially so well, and your mind will store it in the folder of "Manifesting Future" vs. the folder "Learn From The Past" then you might find yourself getting the same unwanted financial results. Therefore we need to help our mind to store the information in a way that will be in alignment with our desires, not just let it do it's thing, or load ourselves with a lot of intellectual information but not with the information that will affect our daily behavior and our real world results.
Here are the 3 stages.
The First Stage – Wishful Thinking Stage.
The mind is wishing for this request to happen.
The Second Stage – Predictive Stage.
We want to be ready in life for what is about to happen to us, so that we will not be surprised. If, for example, we are programming our mind to earn more money, we need to prepare ourselves to be able to contain the change, so in this stage we “digest” the information, and we start to “see” (predict) the future.
The Third Stage – Venting stage.
This stage functions like the recycle bin on your computer. It throws out the information that is not serving us any longer through symbolic dreams.
This cycle of these 3 stages is taking place between 3 and 4 times at night.If the lesson has not been learned or the dream was not interpreted correctly, there might be more dreams that will try to vent out the information that is stuck in the mind. It’s like deleting information but leaving it in the recycle bin, so it is still in the system.
Why is it SO IMPORTANT to feed your mind
with positive, uplifting, empowering information
just before you go to sleep?
Because our minds processes FIRST
the LAST information that came in.
So if you fed yourself with bed news it's like eating junk food. Now your mind, instead of focusing on a good night sleep, need to process all the negative information and only then if there will be time and room it might focus on something that you really wish to be, do or have. You don't need to wait for the left overs of your mind. There is a simple and very effective way to utilize the time before you go to sleep (click here).
