For several years, I've always wanted to launch a website and podcast. I've been impressed with the work of people like Kelly Howell, whose own work has been an inspiration. Now it's time. This is an introduction to me and the site. I trust you'll enjoy us getting to know each other a little bit. Welcome to the program called Subconscious Mind Mastery.
I'm Thomas Miller, and this is a story of my journey from failure to consciousness. This is a work in progress, so let's grow together!
This is subconscious mind mastery podcast number 1 recorded on Easter Sunday March 31st, 2013.
And thank you for joining us for this very first podcast of this new website launch called subconscious mind mastery. My name is Thomas Miller. I live in Dallas, Texas. And this is the first podcast and so this is obviously going to be an introductory podcast to tell you a little bit about the site and a little bit about myself. So we’re going to keep this to about 12-15 minutes. So thank you for joining us, this will get us started and then there’s going to be a lot of great content and interaction to follow. Already we have a couple of good posts. I would point you especially to the one that is the 12 minute long video of Bob Procter. I’ve never heard a better explanation of what the subconscious mind is than what Bob does in describing that 12 minutes that he did on how you got to where you are, how your subconscious mind was programmed to be the way that it is. And then of course the follow through is how to reprogram it so that you can literally direct yourself from the inside out of how you’d like to live the life of your dreams.
So what is the subconscious mind? Freud called it the unconscious mind, that mind that you don’t have a cognitive relationship with, to many it’s intuition or gut feeling or instinct or that little voice in your head. But as Bob Procter pointed out so brilliantly, the subconscious mind is programmed. It’s partially genetic and then a big part is environmental. I heard a great explanation of this from Dr. Sean Sullivan, his website is the mindmaster.com and he has a clinical practice in the San Francisco Bay area. And he’s developed a 21 day program called the Mind Mastery Program. This was something that I found a couple of years ago and did it on my iPad and as I got further into I thought, oh my goodness, this is an amazing program. Dr. Sullivan describes the subconscious mind this way. Think of a bridge and under the bridge of course is the water; above the bridge as he describes it is a night sky. I’m not going to go into the descriptions of what the water represents and what the night sky represents, we’ll talk about that later because I love his program and we’ll talk about it in future podcasts.
But between you, your conscious self you and where you want to go over there on the other side of the bridge, the goals, the aspirations, the dreams, the things that you’d like to achieve is a bridge keeper on that bridge. And so every time you try to cross the bridge the bridge keeper is there to remind you of all the things and all the reasons and all the circumstances and literally that bridge keeper has been storing every memory, every experience, every emotion, everything that has ever happened to you and the bridge keeper only has one purpose in mind and that is to keep you safe. It really is an amazing composition how we humans are designed because that subconscious, that unconscious part of our brain is literally programmed by all of life’s experiences to keep us safe. So how does the bridge keeper get programmed? Well like I said, partially it’s genetic, I think all of us are born with some genetic predisposition to be the way that we’re going to be. I don’t think you could argue that. But then literally from the day you’re born and I would even encourage to
