The Key to Your Subconscious – Images, Feelings and Metaphors

Your subconscious contains all of your memories, emotions, beliefs, programs, habits, preferences and drives. It controls all functions of your body, heals and balances you when you’re sleeping. It is the gateway to your other dimensions of your being: your spiritual energy, past lives, akashic record, parallel lives, your mythic reality, symbolic reality, transpersonal reality.  Your subconscious is really running the show.

How would you like to find out how your brain is wired so you can change it to suit you and help you accomplish your goals? That’s what submodalities can do for you. They are an amazing and powerful part of how you organize your experience of life. We don’t often notice it, but when we think about something we all have a special way of organizing the thoughts into images (visual), sounds (auditory) and sensations (kinesthetic).  Let me show you what I mean and how you can use this to help yourself in many, many ways. It takes a little bit of work, but it’s really worth it. Right now, think about something you really like to eat.
