Stop Providing Weapons to Your Enemy

subconscious programming
By Randy Gage in Critical Thinking, Success, Prosperity.

Last post, we talked a lot about the tug-of-war between your conscious mind versus your subconscious programming, for outcomes you want to do, have, and become.  Unfortunately, you can sometimes unknowingly give the negative programming in your subconscious mind an extra advantage.  One it certainly doesn’t need.

This happens when you consciously affirm underlying negative programming by voicing it out loud.  This process is simple and seems innocent enough but doing it will dramatically tip the scales against manifesting your prosperity.  I’m referring to the negative affirmations you speak about your limitations:

I can’t sing a note.

I’m hopelessly clumsy.

I’m always a day late and a dollar short.

I can’t dance to save my life.

I don’t know how to do this.

I couldn’t possibly learn how to…

Hopefully by now, you know the power of your subconscious mind and recognize it is significantly more influential in your beliefs, actions, and behaviors than your conscious mind is.  To make meaningful improvement toward growth and enlightenment requires working first on your subconscious mind since that creates the changes of consequence in your conscious mind.  This requires a concerted effort, enlisting all your available resources.

Let’s suppose your best friend wants to teach you a new dance step that’s going viral on Tik-Tok. If you make an affirmation like, “I can’t dance to save my life,” you’re anchoring that negative belief your subconscious mind is trying to sell you.  Even worse, you’re cutting off all oxygen from the possibility of your conscious mind even entertaining the suggestion and attempting to break the programming.  It’s like providing weapons to your enemies.

Every time you affirm, “I can’t (sing, dance, draw, paint, stay sober, accept love, etc.)” – you’re making the case for a limiting belief and removing any possibility for you to consciously choose to replace that limiting belief.  So be mindful and…

Only argue for the limitations you want to keep.

  1. Hi Randy. Great post. Thanks for the insights. As Henry Ford quote, “Whether you think you can, or you think you can’t – you’re right,” Choose your right

  2. Holy Cr** this is a brilliant post to enable people to become “woke”. What an elegant insight too.! #thankyou Randy!

    The subconscious doesn’t understand good from bad, right from wrong – it just acts on the information you supply. So correct, let’s not give weapons to our subconscious and make it our own enemy. Powerful.

    Hi Randy , my mind will race forward, but as i am reminded by spirit there is always a process, like is your mind ready… or is the time right… releiving our selfs of child hood programming takes a lifetime. and the mind cannot turn a switch due to it’s memory bank, but what i can say the more we read our enlightened books the more different realisations come into mind..which start to out dwell the old programmes, I am a slow burner, so my mind takes months and years to process something, but i always get there in the end… love G UK

    Loved reading this today as I am preparing for the Soaring Seniors Hike for Health in August. I am going to hike the 272-mile Long Trail as a way of presenting a much healthier and robust view on being a senior than we all got programmed into. Have a documentary filmmaker (connected to me via Ton Antion) planning to film the beginning of the hike in early August. Your last line is perfect for this day! Thanks!
