Do you ever just get ambushed by the Universe? Smacked so unexpectedly that you’re left dazed? Befuddled? Bewildered? Well, that happened to me this week, when I was driving to work Monday morning and the phone rang. Here’s the ‘rest of the story…’
Affirmations, which have been proven to be in alignment with the Universe are powerful ways to manifest your intentions, and reprogram your subconscious mind. Over 60 years ago, Catherine Ponder, a Unity minister in Birmingham, Alabama, created affirmations that are still as powerful today as they were back then. They made a huge difference in my life, and in this Podcast, I want to share them with you. Powerful, energy-bending affirmations that can shift your life into Prosperity!
This certainly isn’t for everyone! But what began as a whim turned out to be one of the best things I ever did for re-creating my life. Here’s the story – warts and all. The Year in the RV and how it helped change my subconscious programming – forever!
It takes a lot of guts to look at your life and decide you need to make changes. This is a bold, brave move, should you be considering doing so. Most people are content to live their lives on a daily grind – the treadmill analogy – without ever stopping long enough to do a deep-dive and see if something needs to change.
If you have done so, I salute you. In this Podcast, we are going to look at some tools that were a big part of my own process of making radical changes to the programming of my subconscious mind that have resulted in a dynamic, powerful life. Wherever you are now, have hope that you can create a life you love.
It takes time. It’s not a drive-through solution. But you can do it. In this podcast are some tools to help you along the way.
This podcast might ruffle your feathers a bit! Let it. Much of what your life looks like today is because of the beliefs you have developed over the years. Because the beliefs we hold generally are derived either from our own observation and experience, or taught to us by those we either reviere or respect greatly, we hold them tightly. Beliefs we would die for are our core values. These are our most deeply held beliefs.
Good things that appear in our life come as the result of our beliefs. Resentment, hate, negativity, job loss, divorce, etc. also come from beliefs.
Let’s examine what we believe and why. Hopefully, you’ll see that many of your beliefs can (and should) be challenged, and as you look at what you believe from a fresh perspective, you can eliminate beliefs that don’t serve you and adopt those that will move you in the direction you want your life to go. You just have to be willing to examine, release, and change those things you have held dear.
If you change a belief because of this podcast, please email me and tell me about it. email@example.com
This was too good to pass up. I was in a meeting not long ago with a really great guy who has an amazing perspective on life, faith, spirituality, and serving other people. He is a constant radar for folks who might need his help. And he will alter his schedule and give his time to anyone who crosses his path who might need a hand. I’m very pleased that we will now be working together in a significant capacity in my life.
After we completed the business part of the meeting, we started talking about personal matters and it didn’t take long for the topic to turn to church, faith, and the true application of Christianity and spirituality. He has a very refreshing look on how faith should be lived out in our lives and as a little example of his more practical perspective, he told me the old familiar story of David and Goliath, but like I’d never heard it before. I had to share it with you, and there’s a great application we can work into our own lives every day.
Now we’re going to shift into our new identity! We laid the groundwork in Podcast 12 and Podcast 13, so now we’re going to learn how to transform our old beliefs into a totally new personal identity. This is the “shift” point that can catapult your life in a new direction!
Podcast 14 – Rules, Rules, Rules Part 4
You’re listening to Subconscious Mind Mastery podcast number 14, part three of a three part series.
My name is Thomas Miller. If you haven’t caught part 1 or 2, go back to 12 and 13 and get a running start because you won’t get the context of this podcast if you haven’t listened to those other two. But in this one we are going to put a bow around it all and we’re going to wrap everything up and look at how we can deal with these yeah but resistances. And the other big thing that we’re going to cover today is how to deal with our identity because it’s those resistances, it’s that yeah but resistance combined with the accentuation I guess, the enlargement of our self-ego, our identity that keep us from what we want. So that’s what we’re going to unpack in this podcast. And I hope that this series has helped you understand a little bit better of how you got to where you are and why certain things have been the way they are, when it might have been a little bit mysterious before, because this is really, really, really huge. We build out whole lives around these perspectives that we’ve discussed. The world according to me is built on exactly what we’ve talked about, that very early on in our development, sometimes even back into the womb or before the womb, that we were formulated with predispositions or impacted with certain circumstances, stimuli programming that gave us a certain perspective on this new thing that we were born into called life. And from that perspective we basically stepped out into the world as a little magnet and we started to do life.
Life rewarded us according to how we were polarizing, how we were magnetizing, the vortex, that energy that we had. And even as little kids we started to build interpretations and beliefs about how life was, lots of if then correlations of the circumstances that if I do this and I get that result then we program our belief system from there. And then a lot of things are taught to us by our environment, by our parents, our school, our church etc. And all of that goes into what we really probably into our teenage years and live through our teenage years with this perspective of, oh okay, this is life. Some people have a really great start and they end up just sailing through. And literally I think that’s … it’s the combination, it’s generic predisposition and it’s the programming. A lot of us have not had that luxury and we’ve had to work on ourselves. And I would dare say that most of us find ourselves in the latter category rather than the former. So we’ve built all these rules up about life. And the problem is, is if we look at somebody else’s life and they’ve built a different set of rules and those rules might be an opposite polarity of our rules, but yet life works for them according to their rules and life works for us according to our rules. And so you can’t say that our rules are ‘right’, right by whose interpretation? They’re right for us because that’s how we’ve interpreted that we need to build a belief system in order to in essence, survive this thing called life, which we find as sometimes not safe.
So the biggest key, I’m telling you, this is the 80/20 rule of what I did to turn myself around is when I finally was able to give up those rules. And I will tell you, it is the hardest process you will go through because those are your rules. You worked hard to develop those rules. Life itself has put together that bundle of rules for you. This is how you believe the way that it is. Now let me stop and say right here, if life is working for you, then don’t listen to this, turn it off, because those are the rules that you want to ultimately develop, is the rules that make life work for you. I am talking to the people here that have been challenged and that are struggling and that have stuff in their life that doesn’t work well for them. That’s the audience for this series. If life is working for you, great, then don’t change what has got you there. Pardon the bad grammar.
I have a good friend right now in my life who is in that second category, that it just, life just works for this guy and it has for a long time. And he moves and he sails through life so almost effortlessly. And everything he touches does well. And I sent him an email the other day and I said, “Well I know you well enough to know that I can just say congratulations on things going well.” You know how normally we send an email and we say, “I hope things are going well for you?” Well I just said, “Hey, congratulations, I know things are going well for you.” And he sent back lol. He thought that was funny. But that’s where we want to get to and that’s what this whole website and podcast is all about is how to reprogram that old programming, because it is, it’s stuck in our subconscious minds. And our subconscious minds are that driver, that spiritual force, that unconscious propeller if you will, that directs our lives in a certain way according to that programming. We press certain programming on the subconscious mind, it locks onto that and it goes out to fulfill it. So for example, my friend is programmed towards success. So he wakes up in the morning and certain things are just working for him, things are lined up, phone calls are ready, emails are in his box and that’s what he intended to do. A lot of us wake up with a tremendous amount of fear and anxiety and stress.
And our life unfolds according to that programming because our subconscious mind is fulfilling what our conscious mind is pressing upon it day after day, emotion after emotion. And this is where you have to guard every single thought that you allow yourself to hold in your mind. Thoughts can come and go, you can have a thought about, oh that jerk driver, and then you can just let it go. And you go “No, no, no, I’m sorry, negate that, I didn’t mean to say that, I bless that person, hey, I hope they have a happy day.” And you can, literally, you can, like a ping pong ball you can have a thought come in and you can whack it back out. But there are other thoughts that we hold on to and those are the ones that you have to have an extra sensitive alert guard of what you’re thinking at any given moment, because it’s those thoughts, and as Napoleon Hill would say, if you combine the thought with the intensity of the emotion of love or the passion of sex, go read Think and Grow Rich, he talks about this in one of the early chapters. It’s great stuff. It’s the thoughts that you hold with that intense emotion, it’s those thoughts that impress the subconscious mind. So if you wake up like I did in the RV for a year there with just fear and terror and anxiety, that’s what’s being impressed on your subconscious mind. That’s what’s programming your subconscious mind.
And so what we’re about here is to identify that, that’s what we’re doing in this three part series and then a lot of techniques of how you can un-program and reprogram that to the life that you really love. Okay. Sorry, I got off track there a little bit. But really this is so important. And this is the deal, it’s yeah but, wherever you see yourself in the resistance of yeah but, Thomas, you don’t understand. Yeah, but I can’t give up that because that’s the way that we used to do it. Oh, here’s a big one, yeah, but our religion teachers or yeah, but look, my life is a mess right now and what you’re telling me to do is to believe that it could be any different, or like the conversation I had last night, “Yeah, but you don’t understand my job and you don’t get my boss.” Yeah but, wherever you see yeah but, I want you to stop, get your journal out and write about it, yeah but, here some yeah but resistance showed up for me today. And unpack that. Stop right there, if you have to wait to do it, I would do it right in the moment because that’s where the intensity of the emotion is, if you at all can, do it in the moment, if you can’t, set it aside but come back to it and get back into that emotion of that yeah but. And unpack that resistance. Where is it coming from? Trace it back.
Follow the steps that we’ve talked about in these podcasts, trace it back to the point of origin in your life, when did this first show up. Ask yourself, why is this emotion so strong for me right now. Find out why it’s serving you. What is it that is in your life or has been in your life where the payoff is, what is this doing to serve you? Because you wouldn’t hold onto it if it wasn’t serving you in some way, so it’s protecting something. And if you connect what bad emotions or what … I won’t say bad emotions, that’s not the correct phrasing, it’s the emotions that aren’t leading you where you want to go. If you can capture those emotions and then figure out what it is in your past that that’s changed to, it’s coupled with something, and if you find what that’s changed to, that’s where you need to go back and deal with that issue. And in dealing with that issue, there might be reprogramming that needs to take place. The people involved might not be alive anymore, you might not be able to go back and reconcile with them if it was a person involved. It might be a series of things where look and you just say, “Oh, I see how life has been according to this pattern.” And that’s where you have to shift that magnet vortex. Is this making sense to you? I hope that it is and I hope that it’s been beneficial.
I had somebody send me an email yesterday and just said, “Thank you Thomas.” And it had about eight exclamation marks after it. And so I really appreciate that. And by the way, if you wouldn’t mind, hit the comment box or the voting on iTunes, I would really appreciate that, if you’d take just a minute and vote and leave a comment, I’d love to know how this is impacting you. So if you’re willing to capture those yeah but moments, those points of resistance, that area when you just, man you’re dug in and this is the way it’s going to be, the next biggest thing that you’re going to have to deal with is yourself, and I’m saying self with capital S, your ego, your essence, your identity, because who we are is really an accumulation of all these beliefs and rules that we … that’s how we go out and do life. So what I’m suggesting you do is that you be willing to lay down the rules and release the identity that is so attached to you.
I’ve been working through this and this is where I am in my process right now, for myself. I told you I had a coach, I’ve been working with this coach for about six months. And when we first started I had so many yeah but’s, it wasn’t even funny. I couldn’t wait for my coach to say something so that I could just say, “Yeah, but.” It almost became sport, because I also realized that one of the biggest, deepest, ingrained things that I had going on my psyche and my belief system was that I had to be right every time, game over, I had to be right. And I would do anything in the world to be right and to make you wrong if I had to, so that I could be right. And now I can tell you, the veil is falling off. Here’s also where it would be really great to have an accountability partner, somebody who understands this and understands you enough so that when you get caught back in your stuff and you get back in that rut, because we all do, they can help snap you out of it. They can help bring you out and say, “Wait a minute; you’re going back in that direction. So that’s why I have a coach and we talk on the phone once a week.
And I have my buddy from … who was a roommate in college who I offended at one point in our lives together about 20 years ago. I really offended him. And we were able fortunately to patch up our relationship and now we meet regularly and I go hang it out there, I tell him everything. And I tell him, “Look, I’ve had a bad week, I’ve really been up in it this week.” In fact that was kind of our last conversation. And he helps bring me back out of that. So you need to build that into your life. It’s invaluable. Don’t go at this alone, you need people around you who will help you and hold you accountable to this, because as you identify it and you start to rebuild it then you get a new habit system. And then after a certain period of time you’ll know yourself when you’ve crossed the line because the new programming is so entrenched now that when you violate it like you used to all the time, it really catches you, it stands out, like oh man, I’m going back to that again, whoa, wait, wait, wait, let’s turn, shift back, breathe, that’s not who I am anymore.
Okay, I’ve given you yeah but, I want to give you two more words because this is the shift point. So we’ve identified it and you’re willing to release it, great, excellent, let me welcome you to the rest of your life. How do you step into it? The two words I want to give you are ‘I am’. Wayne Dyer talks about this but it’s not his, believe me, I mean you can trace it back to the old testament where God said, “I am” up there on the mountain when he was giving the 10 commandments (more rules) to Moses. I’m just kidding, but you get the point. Okay. I am, is setting the essence of I am ignoring where I am today. I am setting the intention, I am creating the who I am now.
You remember in the last podcast I told you about Darren Weissman – Dr Darren Weissman and his lifeline technique. After he has looked back with people at that defining moment, that moment of fear in their life when they were 22 months old, then he creates the new who I am. He says, “You wouldn’t choose fear to define you would you? Would you at 22 months old if you could, choose to live the rest of your life in fear?” You say, “Of course not.” Well the next question is who are you now? What do you choose? This is your greatest power is your ability to choose. And so you say, “I choose to be bold and dynamic, powerful and courageous.” And in that lifeline technique process that he does he has people state that in a sentence, “I am bold, dynamic, powerful and courageous.” And if you’ll do that for yourself and say it with that kind of emotion for yourself, it’s amazing how you feel, it just … it lifts you up. So what you’re doing is you’re creating an I am statement and putting it out there into the universe. You’re saying, “I am bold, dynamic, powerful and courageous.” Now, you might look around your life and you don’t see bold or dynamic or powerful, courageous, you don’t see the fruit of that, you don’t see the presence of that. And that’s where we say the other two words, ‘yeah but’, yeah but Thomas, my life is all messed up and you don’t understand, I’m not bold and I’m not dynamic. And we let today’s current circumstances dictate who we are. And so what we say is, “I am my current circumstances.” And that’s that spin cycle that we never get out of.
To make this work in your life you have to say, “I am bold, dynamic, powerful, courageous” when everything around you says otherwise. But this is where you are changing your identity. Let’s say you want to be an author, so you would say, “I am a published author. I am a writer.” Now, what do writers do? Well they write, right. So if you’re saying, “I am a writer”, the next thing you have to do is take steps in the direction of being who you are saying you are, because ultimately isn’t it the actions that we take that define the results that we get? And so if you say, “I am a writer”, not, “I want to be”, you don’t say, “I want to be a writer”, want creates a gap because you’re here, being a writer is over there and there’s a distance, there is a missing element between you and there and that is a publishing contract. So you say, “I want to be a writer one day.” No. No, no, no, change that, “I am a writer.” And writers write. So every day spend some time writing, that’s what I’m doing, so why don’t you come join me if that’s what you want to do. But whatever it is say, “I am” and step into the reality, the identity of that I am.
I gave a speech about this to a group of people just this past week who are wanting to become speakers. And when I talked about stepping into the identity of being a speaker now, I said, “Think about, if you could … think about a successful public speaker who’s doing it successfully, if you could step into their world, step into their identity, if you could become them, if you could have their contact book for 24 hours, if you could know what they know and have experienced what they’ve experienced, and you could own that identity, how would that change your perspective on everything. And then so much beyond that, how much would that change your actions of what you did every day? If you knew what they knew and if you had experienced what they’d experienced, and if you thought the way they thought, it would completely shift your dynamic.” Well, you can almost do that by taking on this new identity by saying, “I am a public speaker, and I’m successful and I’m booked 52 weeks a year.” And then what do you do? Well, if you’re a speaker, speakers speak. And if you don’t have anybody paying you to speak right now, Toastmasters is a great way to go get some speaking experience. And in the process you’re going to keep developing your I am a public speaker. What will happen is the universe will come along and support your I am statement because it won’t let you hang out there by yourself for very long as an I am identity without coming along to support you to fulfill that.
But do you see how carefully we have to guard our thoughts, because if you say, “I am a loser, I am fearful, I am someone who life just doesn’t work for.” Or let’s take a negative, “I am too good for this. I am someone with too much experience to be doing this.” Well if you are then why aren’t you? See we sometimes conjure up false I am’s in order to cover up what isn’t working in our life. And that brings us back full circle to lay it down. If you’re willing to give it up then you can rebuild it with a new I am. So create a new I am today that serves you and that takes you in the direction of where you want to go. If you say, “I am love. I am a person of love.” Well, go find somebody to love today, go find an animal to love today, but go find some expression of love that’s new in your life.” If you say, “I’m a person of peace, I choose to be at peace”, then take steps to go do something to be at peace, go meditate, go do yoga, go pray.
The other thing I would suggest you do is to write this down on an index card and keep it by your bedside. In fact, I would keep it in several places. That’s what I do. I keep it in my car and I keep it up on the bathroom mirror and I keep it by my bedside. I keep it in a journal and I have an electronic journal so I am kind of a little bit over the top. You know what they say, “The acorn doesn’t fall too far from the tree.” But I’ve written stuff up on the bathroom mirror for several years now and every day I make sure that I take some kind of a step toward the identity that I’ve created, even if it’s five minutes, take some kind of action.
So basically this podcast series has outlined a lot of the major points that it took for me to change my life from this point to that. The comprehension, the understanding that I had to achieve in order to understand what I needed to change and then some of the steps that I took to change it. And I hope it really makes a difference for you. If it has I’d really appreciate it if you’d share it with your friends and leave some comments there in iTunes or on the website or both. My name is Thomas Miller.
If you go back to one of my early video posts from Bob Proctor, he offers a fantastic explanation of how our subconscious mind gets programmed early on. So much of who we are as adults is the result of those early years.
I want to introduce you to the very first person to put a comment on this website. Joan Harrison. Her website is ThinkGrowLive.com, and she had a very challenging childhood – to say the least. Her story is compelling because she studied most everything in the self help arena, and while she found a lot of great material, there was still something missing. She’s going to tell you what that one “click” was for her that made the difference and ultimately changed her whole perspective, which then changed her whole life.

There is ONE great Universal Law and 7 sub-laws. The entire universe operates with precision within these laws of the universe. The one, single thing that does not operate within these laws is the thinking human mind.
When we bring our conscious, thinking mind in alignment with our subconscious mind, which can only operate within these laws, miracles begin to happen.
This podcast explores these laws, particularly one – The Law of Polarity.
You know that there is really one great universal law and there are seven sub laws off of that one great law. And the whole universe works in this form and fashion according to these laws. They are as certain as the law of gravity. But because we are conscious thinking human beings a lot of the time we don’t operate according to these laws because we think we can operate outside of them.
Hello everyone, my name is Thomas Miller. Thank you for joining the podcast and the website is subconsciousmindmastery.com. It’s a place where we talk about how you can program your subconscious mind in such a way through thoughts and energy and visualization and beliefs and so impress that on the subconscious mind that it will then connect with that great energy of the universe to bring about its fulfillment, because that is the great law of the universe, that energy is. If you adopt it from a scientific standpoint you say that energy is, if you adopt it from a theology standpoint you say that God is. But the commonality is that there is a great spirit, there is a great connectivity or interconnectivity throughout the entire universe. I’m impressed by Wallace Waddles, wrote The Science of Getting Rich back in the early 1900s, almost 100 years ago. And in the book he says that there is a formless substance that fills every void and every space in the universe. It’s the same concept, however you visualize it or grasp it in your mind but that is the realm that our subconscious mind operates in.
Now, from that one great law that energy is there are seven sub laws and these laws are as predictable as the law of gravity. We’ve never had to have the law of gravity explained to us because we knew that it was there from the very beginning, as soon as we dropped our pacifier it went to the floor and it goes to the floor every time. If you look at the laws of agriculture, those laws are equally predictable, a seed goes into the ground, it dies, it germinates, it becomes a plant and it grows. That pattern is as predictable and you can count on it day in and day out on any continent of the world, any season of the year. There is a time to plant. There is a time to harvest. Our subconscious mind operates within the parameters of these seven laws governed by the great law that energy is, however our conscious mind does not. And that’s where the problem is, because we are thinking human beings with cognitive thinking ability. We often think that we can operate outside of the laws and we don’t think that we have to know the laws in order to create what we want because we feel that our conscious mind, our will and our volition can take us where we think we want to go.
I have two very exciting episodes of this podcast that we will release soon. They are two, part one and part two interviews with a friend of mine, Dr. David Slater. Dr. Slater had a skydiving accident when he was in college at Texas ANM University, and as a result had an out of body experience. And then in his 30s he had another situation where he was forced to rebuild his life and shift in a different direction again. And he has some very interesting theories that we are going to share with you on why we can’t affect change in our life and why we’re stuck on certain areas where we just can’t move forward. And it’s all around this central thesis, this theme of our subconscious mind drives everything that happens in our life. So please be sure to catch those episodes, I know that they will touch you deeply.
So let’s look at these seven laws, particularly we’ll focus on one of them and look at how it affects several areas of our life. These are in no particular order, one law is not greater than the other one, doesn’t build on the other, they all stand individually but I’m going to list them in such a way that the one that we want to focus on is mentioned last. The first that we’ll consider is the law of perpetual transmutation. This law basically says that something is always moving into form. A lot of times we forget that. The reason I say this is because if we have a negative thought or if we have a thought that doesn’t take us in the direction that we want to go, like I can’t pay my bills this month, something is always moving into form. And if you think that and you create that, that is what is going to move into form. When you really grasp the law of perpetual transmutation it will change the way that you think because you’ll realize that something is always happening out there in front of you and your thought is going to direct what happens in the path in the events of your future. And so it will completely shift the way that you think.
Another law is the law of relativity, this law says that there’s nothing big or small, close or far, that basically everything just is. It’s only a matter of perspective as to whether it’s big or small, good or bad, close or far, hot or cold, it’s all relative. My take on a situation, might be completely different than your take on the situation. Neither is right or wrong, they both just are.
Now, let’s talk about the law that is the basis of the law of attraction, it’s the law of vibration, like kind magnetizes like kind. I’m sure you’re familiar with the work of Esther Hicks and her channeled being Abraham. Esther outside of the movie, The Secret, I think has done more to popularize and teach on the law of vibration, that like mind magnetizes like kind, when you’re in a negative vibration you will attract negativity to you, it’s magnetic, and that is the law of attraction. When you finally shift into that internal subconscious vibration, that internal energy wave that aligns your subconscious with your conscious, that’s when you begin to attract things into your life. The problem is that most of the time we are in some way in conflict with those two realms, but that’s what this website is about. So stay with us we have a lot of material that we can cover over the years ahead.
The next law is the law of rhythm. Everything moves to and fro, you have a high tide, you have a low tide. You have seasons changing throughout the year, up and down, in and out, backward and forward, everything is always moving to and fro, the law of rhythm. Not everything in your life is always going to be going great guns and conversely when you’re going through one of those slumps and things just seem to be going wrong, that’s not going to last forever either, there will be a season, there will be a tide, there will be a change, just stay in the law of rhythm and realize that nothing lasts forever.
The next law is the law of cause and effect, Emerson called this the law of laws, the Bible calls it the golden rule, basically what you put out you get back. No law is greater than the other, but this law certainly affects so many areas of our life. It’s often said that if you put a negative out you’ll get a negative right back, but if you put a positive out, you have to incubate it and it will take a little bit of time but eventually you’ll get a positive back. Certainly you know the implications of this in relationships, in marriage, in dating if you’re single, in interoffice harmony at work, what you put out you will get back. Sow a positive seed expect to get a positive seed back. Sow a negative seed you’ve just made a withdrawal from that bank account.
The next law is the law of gender, basically like the seed that is planted in the ground there is a gestation period, there is a growing time between our idea and its manifestation. Sometimes that’s a long period of time. Sometimes that’s quite quickly. Our role is to trust the universe, trust that great energy, trust the spirit of God that that time will happen in just the right season according to the fulfillment of our desires. It’s not ours to consider how it’s going to happen or when it’s going to happen but just to hold that it will happen.
The seventh and final law and the one that we are going to spend some time on is the law of polarity. The law of polarity says that everything has an equal opposite, for up there’s down, for black there’s white. The law also states that these opposites are of equal force. So if you say, “Something bad has happened to me”, the law of polarity will shift it to think there’s something good out there as well in equal and opposite force. So if you think something has really bad happened to you then you should be on the lookout for something really good to happen to you. So how can we put this to work in our daily lives? Well let’s say that you get an idea, you think it’s a great idea and you run it by your friends or your boss and they don’t think it’s such a good idea, in fact there’s resistance to your great idea. And if you don’t get it by going to your friends or your boss, take it to your banker, try to convince him. There you’ll get some resistance and you’ll find out that really the rest of the world doesn’t think that you’ve come across such a great idea. I don’t think there’s been anything that anybody could point to in history where somebody came up with an idea and the world rolled out a red carpet at their feet, even Bill Gates or Steve Jobs or Donald Trump or some of these incredible pioneers of the various thing that we know are greatness of our generation, they all had obstacles and they all had things that they had to overcome in building their various empires. And so it’s no different for you and me in our lives. If you come up with a great idea expect through the law of polarity that there’s going to be resistance, just be ready for it and don’t be surprised, upset or offended when it shows up.
Now, let’s take the game up a step, if you make a commitment, so now your idea is on the line, you’ve said, “I will commit to this.” The resistance is even going to be greater, the universe will test your resolve, the bigger the commitment you can expect the bigger the challenge. Think about this in the world of sales, you target a client, the great piece of business that you’d like to go after and they won’t even return your calls. I chased a television client for almost two years back when I was in television production, but it ended up being the defining moment of my career and it became my largest piece of business for over 12 years. That’s a long time in the television world. So the more they resist the more you should expect demand calling to existence a more and greater and bigger return. The same is true for relationships, health or anything else that you can think of to take on. Any idea or commitment, according to the law of polarity will be met with a challenge, with resistance.
The key then in how you operate within this law is that you persist. You’ve developed a vision in your mind, you’ve written it down, you’ve spoken it out to other people, you continue taking action in that direction, use the steps that we’ve already talked about in podcasts and in the blog articles, visualize it in your mind, write it down in your journal, speak it out to other people who will hold you accountable and they will support you in this vision, take the steps necessary to keep moving in that direction, check with your subconscious to make sure that it’s in harmony with your conscious mind and that there’s not some kind of disagreement there that’s keeping the action from unfolding. If there is, take the steps necessary to reprogram your subconscious mind by impressing your belief with emotion and visualization, vivid images that you can impress on your mind so that your subconscious and your conscious mind become aligned, that’s the gestation period. Remember these laws operate in harmony and sometimes it just takes time to get both sides of your brain headed in the right direction. But the point is, don’t give in to the resistance. Realize the law of polarity says the resistance will come, it’s part of the universal way. What happens is that we often meet that resistance and we give up, we don’t stay true and we don’t stay focused. So let your intuition keep guiding you, listen to your subconscious. Be persistent, don’t give up, never ever quit, there is an equal and opposite benefit for you over on the other side, life always cycles, expect it and don’t resist it during those shadowy times.

Here’s a really bold statement: “Everything that has happened to you is because of the thoughts impressed on your subconscious mind by belief” – Joseph Murphy “The Power of Your Subconscious Mind”
This podcast contains the recipe I used to literally shift the course of my life from heading down a continual cycle of everything I didn’t want, and shifted it into everything I do want. You can do the same.
1. Determine what isn’t working
2. Trace it back
3. Analyze everything around it
4. Create a new belief (Do the Opposite)
5. Impress on the Subconscious Mind through repetition and vivid visual imagery
If this is your first time stopping in, thank you for joining us. If you’re coming back for a weepy visit, glad to have you back. My name is Thomas Miller and we talk about on this podcast, the influence and the power of your subconscious mind. And today we are going to go straight in on the conversation because I believe literally that this lesson and this session that we are going to talk about literally can change every event, belief and resulting circumstance of your entire life. This is at the core of how your subconscious mind gets programmed and the steps that you can take to reprogram it. Now, that’s a pretty bold statement.
So while we’re putting bold statements on the table, let’s just put another one down as well. This is a quote from Joseph Murphy, author of the Power of Your Subconscious Mind. He says everything that has happened to you is because of the thoughts impressed on your subconscious mind by belief. The reason that I’m doing this website and these podcasts is that for nearly 50 years thoughts drove the outcomes of my life but they were not according to what I wanted to have unfold in my life. So I found myself at nearly 50 years old looking back at the previous three or four decades thinking, this is not what I was thinking when I got out of high school. And as I finally unpacked everything that had happened that led me to where I was at that point in my life I realized that there was one common and predictable and patternable consistency through the whole thing, and that was everything that had happened in my life was something that correlated to a belief, a thought, a feeling, an emotion or a programming either in my conscious or subconscious mind. It was something I either believed consciously or it was something that was suggested or programmed or just ingrained in me since I was a child that had become part of my subconscious mind’s programming. And for an example of that you could go back and listen to the first podcast where I tell that story of the pastor from the Baptist church where I grew up in Tulsa, Oklahoma who told me when I was about 24 or 25 years old that I was the biggest disappointment that he had ever had in his ministry and how that affected the rest of my adult life.
And I would dare say that there are things that have happened to you from either your parents, school teachers, other kids, a spouse, a child of your own, it doesn’t matter what the source. But I would imagine that things have been said or suggested or implied or happened to you that if you unwind and unravel them like you would a ball of twine you’ll see how that programming affected your conscious mind in a number of events, circumstances and outcomes in your life could be tied directly to that. Now, the other thing that’s very important for me and I mentioned it just a minute ago but I want to reemphasize it, is that the things that I’m discussing here to me are how the laws of the universe operate. In the next podcast we’re going to take a look at the one great universal law and seven subsidiary laws.
And we’re going to focus on one of those seven laws in particular and it’s not the law of attraction, I’ll tell you that right now, because you’ve heard a lot about the law of attraction. We’re going to take one of the laws that you haven’t heard so much about and show you how it directly applies to so many circumstances in the events that unfold in your life. These laws are as certain as the law of gravity. The law of gravity is known to everyone, it is predictable, it is consistent, it will happen every time. And these seven laws that we are going to start to look at in the next session are equally as predictable, equally as certain and equally affecting every area of your life. The challenge is very few people operate according to the laws of the universe, they don’t understand them and even when we do understand them it is often difficult to keep our conscious mind and our subconscious mind in perfect sync. They often are at a tug-of-war with each other and that’s when we get conflicting results in our life. We either get no result, we get a negative result because of a programming that we really just don’t even understand or the thoughts and beliefs that we consistently hold in our mind will eventually program our subconscious mind and that will lead our life in that direction.
Wernher von Braun was one of the pioneers of the space program and he said that the laws of the universe are so predictable that we can program a computer to fly a man to the moon, land him there and return him to a precise spot on the earth with an amazing degree of accuracy. The laws of the universe are patternable and they will affect every area of your life. Now, let’s talk about how our mind operates. You know that you have a conscious mind and you have a subconscious brain. And I’m not going to go into the various parts of where the brain operates from. I work in the medical field and I’ve heard this discussed and have studied it extensively myself. And I think we get caught up too much in the mechanics of how it works and forget or undermine that it works. So let’s don’t worry about the limbic system and let’s don’t worry about the frontal lobe and the hippocampus and all this stuff. Let’s just focus on that you have conscious thought. I’m not telling you anything you don’t know, some scientists have said 60,000 original thoughts a day. But you know that your brain is always thinking, it’s always analyzing and you’re talking to yourself all day long. And then you have that deeper self, that unconscious you as Freud described it, that what we call the subconscious mind.
The subconscious mind doesn’t reason, it doesn’t think, it doesn’t analyze, it doesn’t know relativity, it doesn’t say this is hot or this is cold or this is good or this is bad, it simply accepts what is pressed upon it by emotion and belief from the conscious mind and it works to make that come to pass. They say that the human brain is the most incredible super computer that’s ever been developed. I would definitely agree because the subconscious mind can capture and hold every emotion, event, activity, response, thought, occurrence, event, outcome, everything, it captures all of that and it accumulates that for your self protection. The subconscious mind also takes your suggestions through connecting with the universe and turns them into conditions, experiences and events that eventually will fulfill the purpose of the belief that was impressed upon it. Now, you already know this but let’s emphasize because we’re laying the groundwork, the seed, the soil for how we’re going to grow what we’re going to be talking about. You know that everything that we see around us in the world of matter around us is comprised and made up of molecular energy. If you’re taking a scientific approach you call it energy, everything is energy. If you take an approach from theology you say that everything exists and the nature of everything is God. The Hindus would say that matter; those things that we see around us are the lowest form of energy. And the spirit world is the highest form of energy. I grew up as a Christian and Christianity teaches that there is a holy spirit that permeates the world.
There’s an interesting book written by a gentleman by the name of Wallace Waddles – W-A-D-D-L-E-S, it’s called The Science of Getting Rich. It was written almost 100 years ago. And in it Wallace Waddles describes a formless substance that permeates and fills every void of the universe. If you think about a formless substance, if you think about an interconnectivity between literally every material space, everything that we see around us is filled by this energetic field, this formless substance, this spirit, this energy. You see where I’m going with this? Put your own comfortable label on it, but just go with me that there is not vast space between New York and Los Angeles, but think about an interconnectivity, a formless substance, a spirit, God himself, the energy of the universe that exists so that if you’re in New York and you need something, that the resource for it to meet your need is in Los Angeles, that there is a common and uniting thread that will eventually bring the two of you together. Can you believe that?
Maybe it sounds too mystic or new age, would you just try it on and try it on from this standpoint, that if you will study and master what we’re talking about, learn it and apply it to your life and then see if it does not consistently patternably show up time after time after time as you begin to use this to manifest the things that you create in your mind and begin to see them unfold in the material world. If you will begin to harness the power of your subconscious mind and begin to use it effectively in every area of your life, at some point you will look back over the years of your life and you’ll realize that the beliefs that you held fast in the image and the imagination of your subconscious mind have indeed come to pass. And I have such a passion especially to teach this material to young people, people in their teens and 20s and even preteens so that they don’t have to go through what I went through and miss decades of their life because of bad or mis-programming or because life just is so hard in those formulative years that they just give up. You don’t have to live a life like that.
It doesn’t matter where you are now, if you grasp this material then you will be able to look past your current circumstances, create in your mind where you want to go, impress that on your subconscious mind so that it will then go out into that formless substance, that energy, that God’s spirit that fills every void of the universe and begin to bring about the fulfillment of your desires. I can honestly tell you this is starting to happen in my life with such consistency now that I can even apply it to the little small details of my routine day. And I’m going to give you an example.
To create this podcast there’s certain equipment that I need. I have had for the last 15 years a Mackie mixer board. It’s a certain piece of equipment that you can buy at various retail locations who sell this type of thing. Here in the Dallas Fort Worth area it’s Guitar Center. It’s really important to me that these podcasts sound broadcast professional quality. And my 15 year old Mackie board had finally developed a hum in it that, well it really just needs to be either serviced by somebody who knows far more about the inner workings of such equipment than I or it needed to be replaced. So without visualizing anything, just knowing that I kind of knew the market and I knew the space I headed out to the largest guitar center store in the north Dallas area and I was going to go buy a new board. But I hadn’t thought about it. I hadn’t preyed about it. I hadn’t envisioned anything in particular. I just went to the store because they are known to have the largest inventory.
Well nothing worked out, it just … I was trying to put a round peg through a square hole it seemed. I chose one board that was like, well I’ll see if this will work and I brought it home and of course it didn’t, there were several features about it that just didn’t work for me. So I took that board back to another store that was closer to me, so I didn’t go back to the same store. And on the way I decided to apply the very thing that I knew that we were going to be talking about together here. And I visualized exactly the board that I wanted, I thought of the number of inputs, the features, the price, I thought of everything that I wanted because I didn’t want to spend too much, this is a podcast after all, I mean I don’t need an excessive amount of equipment here, and I visualized exactly what I wanted. So I went to this different store and I started to work out the details of the exchange. And they were showing me their line of mixers which were similar to the other store but there was one difference, there was one mixer that was exactly what I wanted. Oh, and by the way, it was on sale, 10% off. And, oh, by the way, they only had one. It was exactly what I had visualized not even an hour before as I was on my way there. This is the kind of detail, this is the kind of way that you can begin to use your conscious mind pressing onto your subconscious to let it lead you into exactly what you want, I almost got chills down my spine.
And as I’m looking at this board I realize the story behind it, that that is the manifestation of my thoughts that I created before I even went to the store. Is this a little far out for you? Is this a little weird? I hope it’s not because as you began to harness what your mind can do, then you literally will be able to apply it in every area of your life.
Alright, let’s jump into some processes now. I want to give you some specific steps of things that have really helped me turn things around in analyzing a directional shift, in other words you’re headed in this direction and now you want something different.
Number one – clearly identify what isn’t working, this is what I did in that year in the RV, I literally picked my life apart thread by thread and captured it in probably five journals. I don’t know how many there are, there’s a stack of them in a box now in my garage because I’m past the journaling of that. But it really helped me to capture it and write it down. So list specifically what in your life, what area of your life is not working for you.
Number two – and this became very important for me, determine the very earliest recollection of when this happened in your life, go back in your memory as far as you can into your childhood, your teenage years, wherever it very first showed up.
And number three – look all the way around that situation, determine what it was that created the thought, the suggestion, the belief, was it a person, a situation, maybe an environment, perhaps the result of an action? What caused you to come up with the belief or the condition that led to the circumstances and the actions that unfolded the way that you have determined that you didn’t want them to come out?
One of the formulative things in my life happened when I was about three years old and my mum basically what happened was that she kind of brushed me off. I made a request for her to come tuck me into bed and she was right in the middle of a television program and she said, “I’ll come in when I get through watching the show.” What I made that mean was, I don’t matter, I’m no good, I’m not worth her attention. Was any of that true? Hell no, she was probably exhausted after chasing two kids around the house all day. There was probably a show that she was interested in watching. These were the black and white television days, folks, and there was no DVR. So she had to sit there and watch the rest of it and she was just putting her feet up for a few minutes. So I made it mean something that it completely didn’t. But it was formulative and I could see how many times and how many ways I made that literally a programming of my subconscious mind so that it permeated my existence. So you’ve captured your belief. You’ve traced it back as far as you can see. You’ve looked at all the circumstances around it. You’ve even, like I did, like I just told you, analyzed it for what was really the truth of the situation.
Now, let’s formulate a new belief, this is the seed, this is the genesis, this is the beginning of how we reprogram our subconscious mind. Now, there is a little trick that I’m going to tell you that’s as valuable as anything that you could ever imagine. Do the opposite. Do you remember that Seinfeld episode, you can search it up on YouTube, it’s called, just search Seinfeld, Do the Opposite. And the little skit is where George is always getting the same result and finally Jerry challenges him to, hey, you always get the same thing, so why don’t you just try something different. Do exactly the opposite. And so there’s a pretty girl up at the counter of the restaurant where they were having dinner, George goes over and instead of saying, “Oh, I’m not going to ask her out, she won’t be interested in talking to me.” And that’s the normal thing that he would do. This time he goes over to the counter and it’s really funny, you have to watch the episode. But of course the way that it works out is that she’s glad to talk to him and they end up going out with each other.
But the point is, you don’t like where you are now and you’ve been doing certain things to get you up to this point, formulate and opposite perspective on the situation. Be specific, the more vivid and descriptive you can be, the better. If you really want to put some sizzle into change, write it down. Remember the journal, if you’re even more serious, speak it out, tell somebody who you know will have a listening for you who will stand with you in your new commitment and even hold you accountable to it. Speak it out. I have a direction that I want to go in my life specifically. And I did a speech at our toastmasters club about a month ago and the title of my speech was, I Must Do This. And it was me simply speaking out into the universe with a group of people who would agree with me where I wanted my life to go. Speak it out. And if you’re really serious about it, put some visuals around your house that will remind you of it, vision boards. I want to move to Colorado. And so I have clippings of Colorado in strategic key places in my house where I know that my eyes will fall on them several times a day. So at least at a minimum, create the image in your mind. Second – write it down specifically. Third – speak it out to somebody who will stand with you. Fourth – create visuals in your world so you’ll see it over and over and over.
Oh, this material is so good and we’re running out of time, I apologize. I really want to keep these podcasts to under about 18-20 minutes. But may I just tell you about my brother. This very thing happened to him, right now as I’m recording this, he is packing up a 40 foot Winnebago RV and he and his wife are going to launch out and the first place they’re coming is here to the Dallas Forth Worth Metroplex. They are embarking on a six month journey of semi-retirement where they are going to travel the country in an RV. It has been a dream of his for probably a decade. Do you know how he manifest it, because his wife was not in favor of anything to do with travelling around in an RV? Well they bought this beautiful 40 foot diesel pusher Winnebago RV. And the way that he manifest it was that he made the picture of an RV, the desktop image of his laptop computer.
And do you know, this is what’s so just bizarre about this, he took a picture of about four RVs that were lined up on a beach one day that they happened to just stop in this little RV park and there were some units that were parked right up against the water and this one was jutting out just a little farther than the others. And so you could see about the first third of it or so and it was a Winnebago and a particular model and a particular color. Well you know where I’m going with this story. His is that model and that color. It took a couple of years to manifest but the time wasn’t right. And as we’ve looked back and my mother passed away and now the time is there and he is free and released and they are going to go travel and fulfill a dream that has been in his heart and his passion and his subconscious mind with that visual image of that screensaver right in front of him every day when he saw that multiple times a day, finally brought it to pass in just the right time.
Alright, so here’s the sizzle, third – you have to impress this new image on your subconscious mind to the point where it becomes an unchallenged belief. And oh, this is where we fight ourselves so hard because if you develop a mental image that you want to be wealthy and you can’t pay next month’s bills, your conscious mind wars with your subconscious mind for the fulfillment of that because you’re always looking at where you are right now. If people in the office don’t like you and you want a promotion and you want a better job, you can’t get past the fact that the people in the office today are jerks and they’re treating you terribly and you have a boss that won’t promote you and all the various things that keep your conscious mind locked into today’s thinking. So this is the most difficult challenging thing you can possibly take on, is to not look at where you are now but create that vision of where you want to go in your conscious mind and so impress it on your subconscious mind that it begins to believe in that vision along with you. When you do that your entire life begins to change. You’ve heard the expression, once you put your mind to it there’s nothing you can’t do, well this is how the universe comes to your aid to create what may seem to you as impossible.
The key to this part of the process is to so permeate your subconscious mind that it believes what you are impressing on it to the point where it will create its fulfillment. And by the way, this can be positive or negative. I had a subtle vision in my mind from probably when I was in my 30s on, this was … it was not a childhood vision, it was something that came up in my adult years, but I had this image of myself alone in the woods, kind of like a miner back in California in the 1850s. But I had this … it wasn’t anything I focused on but it was just this … I tell you, it was in my subconscious because after my second divorce as I was doing all that journaling and spending that year … spending that year in an RV, one day I realized that I was in there by myself working out my existence alone, nobody around and I recalled that vision and I realized that it had come true. I didn’t want that for the rest of my life so I’ve gone to great extent to change that vision and now I am in exactly the place that I want to be and it’s amazing. Well I want to be in Colorado but we’re working on that and you’ll see that unfold through the course of this podcast. So often you will see in your life where this has been used negatively. The challenge now is to begin to use it positively.
So let’s review the steps.
Identify all the details of what’s not working.
Second – trace it back to the earliest point in your life when you can recall it showing up.
Third – analyze everything around you to determine how that belief or suggestion permeated itself into your subconscious.
Number four – create a new belief, you have to do the opposite, come up with something that’s 180 degrees out of where you’ve been headed if that’s the direction that you want to go.
And finally, impress the new belief on your subconscious mind through repetition and vivid visual imagery.
There are a lot of tools and techniques that can help you with this and that will be the subject of future blogs and podcasts. The journey has begun and I hope that you are as excited as I am for the possibilities. Your life can literally change into everything that you’ve ever wanted it to be. So I always want to leave you with a call to action, something to challenge you to do something. I want you to identify what isn’t working for you, do that first. Take a long hard deep look at your life and pick something that you want to work on, write it down, journal it and then begin to work through these steps one by one. I’d love to invite you to leave a comment of what you found and what you are doing. There’s something powerful in putting things in writing and this is a great place to start to do that. The next thing I’d like to ask you to do is tell your friends, share this podcast and the website with somebody that you think would benefit from it, subconscious mind mastery.
Thank you for listening.
