How to Use Your Subconscious Mind to Successfully Overcome Any Fear

How to Use Your Subconscious Mind to Overcome Any Fear

Everyone has fears. Babies are born with two fears, the fear of loud noises and falling. Over time, as people grow, new fears are developed. Some people can handle their fears better than others, but the fears still exist.

Fear is a natural response to the perception of danger. However, all fears are not natural to humans. Many fears are learned. People can be conditioned or can condition themselves to fear something. These fears can be caused be an event, a series of events or a traumatic experience.

Sometimes these conditioned fears can be directly linked to an experience. However, sometimes the thread that ties that experience to the fear is very thin. When these fears develop they embed themselves into a person’s subconscious and over time, they can become difficult to overcome.

Your Subconscious Mind

Your conscious mind processes actions and makes decisions. However, your conscious mind is not always in control. Many people live their lives based on their past experiences, which are stored in their subconscious.

Your subconscious mind works behind the scenes, gathering experiences and observing patterns. When patterns are created, through action, choice, or observation, they become ingrained in your subconscious mind. When your subconscious mind establishes an appropriate reaction to a pattern, it becomes an automatic function. When a situation arises related to this pattern, your subconscious will tripper this automatic response.

Your fear is a pattern. This pattern may have been established over time through series of negative events, or it could have occurred at once during a traumatic experience. The challenge in overcoming an ingrained fear is that each time this fear pattern is run and fear becomes reinforced in the subconscious. In time, that fear becomes part of who you are, because you will believe that the basis for the fear is real.


While the subconscious mind may be one of the causes of your fear, it can also be used to help you overcome it. Here are three ways you can get your subconscious mind to help you get over any fear.

1. Identify the Root of Your Fear

Finding the root cause of your fear may be difficult, especially if the fear is not directly related to the event or incident the triggered the fear. However, by thinking back to the first times you experienced the fear, you may be able to determine the root cause.

After learning the root cause, you can begin to dismantle the event. Your subconscious may have built your fear up, which means you’ll need to break it down. Your ingrained fear may be based on a perceived threat or a flawed reality. By confronting the event that created the fear, you can lessen the impact of that event and that fear from your life. While this may not eliminate the fear, it is a positive step towards overcoming it.

2. Take Small Actions to Address Your Fear

Your subconscious mind wants to protect you from perceived danger. If a pattern is established that says a certain fear trigger is a threat, your subconscious mind is programmed to respond to that threat. In nature, this would create a fight or flight response.

In order to reprogram your subconscious to stop seeing the trigger as a threat, you must confront your fear. In most cases, when confronted with a perceived danger your subconscious would choose a flight response. However, in order to overcome a fear, you’re going to need to fight it. This may push you way out of your comfort zone.

While steps need to be taken in order to overcome your fear, they don’t have to be large ones. Actually, this process is best completed over time in small gradual increments. By taking small steps, you are giving your subconscious mind time to adjust to your new reality. It may take a while for your subconscious to program a new response to the fear stimulus. However, if you are persistent, the change will occur.

3. Get Help from Others If You Need It

This process can be difficult to complete. By having support from others, you can increase the likelihood of succeeding in overcoming your fears. This support can come from a friend, family member, counselor, therapist, coach or support group.

Depending on the type of fear, you may be more comfortable with one-on-one help. However, some people find that a group setting is more motivating, especially if the group pairs people up for accountability. You must decide which type of support works best for you. You may have to try a few different types of support in order to find the one you prefer.

Your subconscious mind may control many of your fears. However, you have the ability to control your subconscious mind. It may take time, but if you are persistent in your efforts you can successfully overcome any fear, and free yourself from the limitations those fears have placed on your life.

All these people are going to suffer for as long as they live. The only way to find inner peace is to balance conscious and subconscious mind. However, this isn’t something easy to achieve. You have to be willing to look inside you are realize what your deepest wishes are. Sometimes we tell lies to ourselves, as we don’t want to accept a reality that’s not in our advantage. We reject facts, feelings and attitudes, hoping that if we don’t accept them, they are going to change or disappear. However, nothing ever disappears. Even when we consciously believe something, our subconscious might disapprove, as it knows we refuse to see things how they really are. The naked truth is difficult to accept, especially when it is in contradiction with our most important values and beliefs.

It is possible to balance your conscious and subconscious mind through meditation techniques and thoughtful introspection. By watching your bodily reactions to various stimuli, you can detect these contradictions, and then solve them. You can feel your heart changing its rhythm whenever you have to say yes to something your subconscious mind wishes to reject. You can notice an increased blood flow in your cheeks as you have to face embarrassment, shame or anger. These are your own feelings, so you should rather embrace them than try to ignore them. By making peace with yourself, you can enjoy a better quality of life and hopefully a more peaceful life

Subconscious Mind And Love Relationships

You can use your subconscious mind to achieve important goals in your life. Finding the love of your life and fulfilling relationships is one such goal. This article provides information on how you can use your subconscious mind to find the love of your life and improve your relationships.

Whenever you talk about the love of your life or relationships, you need to understand that there is another “invisible person” involved in those relationships. That is none other than your subconscious mind. In fact, your thoughts fuel your emotions and these emotions will affect how you use the language and behave in your relationships. This is why you need to understand the importance of your subconscious mind in all of your relationships.

Most of the time, you are unaware of these thoughts and behavioral patterns. They are almost automatic and created as a result of your childhood conditioning and beliefs. These beliefs and suppressed emotions can interfere with your relationships and either ruin them or make them prosper, depending on what your childhood conditioning is. Find out the specific emotions that drive your actions and words in a relationship. It can be fear, anger, guilt, shame, or hurt. Once you are aware of the emotions that drive your words and actions, it is easier for you to take control of yourself and change your behavioral patterns for better love relationships.

Once you are aware of these limiting patterns, you can begin to replace them with more empowering ones. Your subconscious and conscious mind should be in agreement with each other to enjoy fulfilling relationships in your life. In fact, the subconscious mind is very powerful when it comes to developing fulfilling relationships. When your conscious and subconscious minds work together, you will find it easier to develop loving and fulfilling relationships.

Is The Subconscious Mind Connected To The Universe At Large?

the universe at large
Is the subconscious mind connected to the universe at large? Ask ten different people, and you’ll probably get six different answers. Many people will just shrug their shoulders and say that they do not know. However, anyone religious or spiritual might have enough to say about it to fill your afternoon.

If the subconscious mind is truly a place of divine or supernatural guidance, then maybe it is connected to the larger universe. Dreams, intuition, and even psychic feelings all guide people through the many decisions in their lives, and these intuitions must come from somewhere, right?

A religious person might say that such inclinations are the gentle touch of a deity, or multiple deities or even angels. A spiritual person might believe in an ascended master, animal guides, or even the whispers of deceased relatives and loved ones.

Interestingly enough, as much as subconscious connections to the universe might seem the realm of priests, psychics, and maybe psychologists, physicists themselves might have a few thoughts on the subject. The laws of gravitational attraction posit that every pair of atoms in the universe has a gravitational attraction to each other, perhaps even at a quantum level.

So, if the brain, where the subconscious mind resides has physical matter within it, it has gravitational connections to everything in the universe!

Whether or not thought and emotion can travel these connections is, of course, unprovable with modern technology, but with science fiction making more and more use of the idea of quantum entanglement as a form of communication, maybe the idea is not so crazy as it sounds?

Whether or not the subconscious mind is connected to the larger universe is a very philosophical and unprovable question, but it’s one worth asking anytime you want an interesting conversation because the universe at large is a big place and you can really get to know someone by talking about it.

A Subconscious Fear Of Pregnancy Can Ruin Relationships

A subconscious fear of pregnancy can ruin relationships. Many women actually fear getting pregnant, even if they plan to have kids down the line in the future. They might not be ready physically, mentally, or emotionally. Many women are not ready financially, and in a lot of cases, they just know the partner they are with either does not want kids, or they don’t want kids with their current partner.

That last situation can be very awkward for a couple, when one party knows that they like being with the other but do not want to have kids with them. The reason a subconscious fear of pregnancy can be so cancerous and toxic to a person or a relationship, is because it is left unsaid, perhaps even unrealized by the individual suffering the phobia. Anyone openly afraid of becoming pregnant can simply take steps to make use of birth control and make the necessary alterations to their sex lives.

Of course even when practicing safe sex and birth control, a subconscious fear of pregnancy can still be pervasive, as birth control methods do sometimes fail.

Believe it or not, men can also have subconscious fears of pregnancy. Typically, these fears are not about themselves getting pregnant, but perhaps a wife or girlfriend. If they are dating a woman but not sure if they want to marry her yet, what happens if she gets pregnant? Are they stuck with her?

This fear happens to married men a lot actually. Early in marriages, everything is happy for most couples. However, depending on their age and personal preferences, the wife might decide she wants children. What if the husband doesn’t? A subconscious fear of pregnancy and starting a family can wreak havoc on a man’s psyche, affecting everything from his sex life to his work.

Subconscious fears of pregnancy can really mess people, and it happens across both genders, and single and married couples alike.

The Subconscious Mind’s Purpose

The conscious mind, and the subconscious mind. Two different sides of the same coin. We are well aware of our conscious mind, but what purpose does the subconscious mind serve? In this article, we will discuss the subconscious mind and what it is used for.

The conscious mind is what we use everyday, and where we think the thoughts that go through our heads. What about the subconscious part of our brain?

The subconscious mind is the part of the brain that is not focally aware. It serves as a memory bank, storing everything that happens to us in our life. After being alive for twenty-one years, each of us has stored in our subconscious mind more than one hundred times what is contained in the whole Encyclopedia Britannica It works to store and retrieve the data that we have stored inside of it.

The subconscious mind works to keep you in harmony with your conscious mind. Who you are, what you think, the emotions you experience, the subconscious mind works to make sure you stay who you are consciously.

What else does the subconscious mind do? Well, it works to make sure the body stays at its correct temperature, and keeps the heart beat and breathing rate regular. It keeps the chemicals in your cells balanced so that your body works in harmony with itself.

Have you ever thought about breaking away from what you consider normal, and toward something new? Ever feel nervous about the thought of this change? Your subconscious wants to keep you in what we consider the comfort zone So every time you have to talk yourself into something new, that’s your subconscious tugging you back!

Obviously, the subconscious serves a vital purpose. We simply could not be who we are without the subconscious mind. As we have discussed in this article, our body stays on track thanks to the part of the brain that stays on the back burner.

How to Handle a Subconscious Fear of Rejection

No one likes the feelings that accompany being rejected. Yet, no one is ever completely immune to getting rejected at some point in life.

Rejection can come in a relationship with a family member or a significant other. It can come in the form of being turned down for a promotion or an important job. It can come after being turned down for a position on a team or for a college education.

On the surface, rejection can cause a person to feel sad or anxious. One rejection can cause a person to think twice about attempting whatever it was that they got rejected at again. When the emotional sensations of rejection get pushed aside, a person’s subconscious can absorb those feelings. This can cause a person to have a subconscious fear of rejection.

A person could feel so strongly about avoiding rejection on the job that they quit working altogether. Or, they may feel that getting rejected to a particular school was so distressing that, without really knowing why, they decide to take to working at a menial job rather than pursuing an educational path which could provide them so many better opportunities in life.

For children who got rejected by parents, the subconscious damage may run a lot deeper. Yet, there is hope for anyone dealing with a deep-seated fear of rejection.

The subconscious can be reprogrammed to try and build your own sense of self-worth and confidence. This is the first step to healing from a debilitating fear of rejection.

It will take time and patience, but the process is relatively simple. Tell yourself, with conviction, that you are worth having good things happen to you. Understand that everyone, even successful people, gets rejected at times. Learn from your mistakes and try again. You will eventually overcome your fears and succeed.
