Ideas come from everything.
― Alfred Hitchcock
Do you know that you’re controlled by suggestions? This might sound crazy to you but it’s fact.
It’s a known fact that we are controlled by our thoughts but what most people ignore or fail to realise is that most of the thoughts or ideas which drive us into taking action, usually come to us in the form of a suggestion.
For example, let’s break down the addictive habit of smoking. A smoker could be busy working on something productive, while he’s busy working, he notices that he’s a bit stressed or feeling fatigued, once he becomes aware of this state, a suggestion comes to him, the suggestion will most likely be: Why don’t light up a cigarette and ease your stress?
Because he’s already a smoker, he immediately lights up a cigarette and starts smoking. To the neutral observer, it will come across as if the man originated the idea of smoking a cigarette at that moment. But the fact is that, although the man is a smoker, he never planned to smoke a cigarette at that moment. The fact that he’s smoking a cigarette at that moment is the work of a suggestion that originated in his subconscious mind.
Before a porn addict visits a porn website, he must first receive the suggestion to do that from his subconscious mind. The same is true for any trait, behaviour or addiction. Every idea that we execute comes to us in the form of a suggestion.
The fact is that we are bombarded with images and messages daily. These images and messages go straight into our subconscious mind, where they take root before they re-appear as suggestions.
If the images and messages you’ve exposed yourself to, are healthy and beneficial to your physical, emotional, psychological and spiritual wellbeing, then in due time, they will reappear to you in form of positive suggestions, that if executed, will be beneficial to your life. This’s one of the reasons behind manifestation vision-board.
But if the images and messages you’ve exposed yourself to are bad, then after some time, these will result in you constantly receiving negative and harmful suggestions from your subconscious mind.
As a human being, you’ll be bombarded with different suggestions daily but do you know where those suggestions come from? The idea of starting a business, eating healthy, being trustworthy and reliable, or any other idea that you’ve ever had, first came to you as a suggestion.
These suggestions are the output of the images and messages you’ve consumed both consciously and subconsciously.
When you read a book, an article, newspaper, watch a film or documentary, your subconscious mind takes in all this information, process them and store them as ideas in her unlimited data storage store.
And since the primary job of your subconscious is to keep you safe, whenever you’re feeling stressed, stuck, unhappy or unsafe, your subconscious mind opens up her unlimited data storage store, picks out an idea that will be of help in that situation and present that idea to you as a suggestion.
After you’ve received the suggestion from your subconscious mind, you will naturally consider it, and evaluate its potential. If you believe that its potential for success is good or great, you will then label it as an idea in your mind. This’s when you will usually say: I have an idea.
How To Get Better Suggestions
If most of the suggestions or ideas you’ve had so far in all your existence have been rubbish, it’s because you’ve been feeding your subconscious mind rubbish. Remember, Garbage in, garbage out.
For you to get better suggestions than what you’re currently getting from your subconscious mind, you must read and study books that are beneficial to your physical, spiritual, mental and emotional wellbeing.
If you have money problems, then read and study books that cover financial literacy. If you have health issues, read books about health and wellbeing. Those “lucky” people you know, spend a vast amount of their time studying and learning about how to acquire the things you see them enjoy.
Your subconscious mind will always struggle to give you good suggestions if you fill your mind daily with social media, news, health issues adverts and gossip.
Your subconscious mind is designed to give you suggestions based on what you feed it. Feed it inspirational, uplifting and positive contents and it will give you the same as suggestions. These suggestions will later become great ideas which will lead to great product and services if implemented.
You are constantly receiving suggestions from everywhere but the most powerful suggestion you receive is the suggestion that comes from your subconscious mind.
What makes the suggestion from your subconscious mind powerful is the fact that whenever you accept any suggestion from your subconscious mind, you always act it out in one form or the other.
The good thing about this is that with proper planning and discipline, you can use this to enhance your life. The quality of the suggestions you’re currently receiving is based on the type of content you’ve been consuming.
When you change the type and quality of the content you’ve been feeding your subconscious mind, the suggestions you receive from your subconscious mind will change in the same manner. This change can be achieved by reading and studying books that tackle the issues in your life.
By reading and studying books that tackle the issues in your life, you are changing the input of your life result, and when you change the input of anything, the output must change to reflect the change in input.
