Your Most Powerful Asset in Leadership

Aligning your subconscious mind with your conscious intentions will allow you, as a leader, to manifest your goals and objectives more quickly, effectively, and easily. Do you know how often your subconscious works in opposition to your conscious intent?  Clean that up! Dr. Cathy Collautt shows you how in this great interview of her on MarieTV.  Below the video you can find my favorite quotes from this very powerful talk on how to fully deploy your most powerful asset!

From the transcript:

 

Dr. Cathy is amazingly smart (she’s an Oxford grad) but she is a metaphysician and manifesting consultant.
And what that means is she helps people create powerful, lasting change in their lives; and
one of the ways that she does that is through working with the power of the subconscious
mind.

 

So it we can hear the tension or the MAJOR conflict
between her conscious goal (building a successful business) and her SUBCONSCIOUS fears about
how that might limit her freedom.
So Cathy, tell us why our subconscious minds have so much power over us.
Well, the reason is it’s estimated that approximately about 3% of your processing
power is your conscious mind. The rest of it, the other 97%, subconscious, autonomic,
automatic – you don’t think about how you digest food, you don’t normally think
about how you breathe, all your habits go on automatic pilot, so by far, our greatest
processing powerhouse is our subconscious mind. Scientists will tell you that the power
of the subconscious is perhaps a million times greater than the conscious mind.

 

And the point of that is not to say that your ego and your will are weak – they are extremely
powerful; the point is to recognize that that as powerful as they are, there exists
an asset within us that is even more powerful than that.
So that’s why I work with the subconscious mind and why I encourage other people to get
their subconscious mind onboard in trying to make what they want happen in their lives.
We normally try to make what we want happen through our conscious determination and our
ego and our ‘sweat, blood and tears’ – which is tough going as is.

 

But especially when it’s going over and against something in the other 97%, it
becomes a task of Sisyphean proportions.
Cconscious mind might be saying: ‘I want success!’ Hopefully
it is also saying ‘I am worthy of success.’ But if something in the other 97% say thinks
otherwise, ‘I don’t want success.’ – that’s what she’s going to be getting or manifesting.

 

She is meant to manage this asset, this most effective,
powerful, and efficient employee by giving it good and clear direction. So if you think
of your subconscious as a computer: you understand that it’s going to take its programming
and run with it. And it’s your job to make sure that its programming is in functional,
if not optimal, alignment with your goals. And you do this by programming, re-programming
and de-bugging, at regular intervals and in concert with those goals as you become aware
of them, as they change, and so on.

 

And your job, as president and CEO of yourself and your life, is to get the most out of this
most dependable and capable employee you will ever have at your disposal.
steps to help get your subconscious mind in alignment with your conscious goals?
step 1, after you recognize the resistance, is to be humble. Don’t assume you know anything,
let alone everything, about your resistance; you wanna trust the subconscious long enough
to learn from it. You wanna trust that it has something intelligent and wise to say.
Because it does.
step 2 is to get specific. What is the fear or fears exactly? What are the associations
with having or getting what you want? What exactly is it that the subconscious is looking
out for? You wanna interview your subconscious like you would anybody you’re trying to
get information from, which is with genuine curiosity and compassion. You wanna let it
make its case! You want to hear its case because there is priceless wisdom in it and information
in there for you. get details, and applaud whatever you find. Applaud it before you judge it.
Because you, you know, what you normally associate with you, is by far not the smartest thing
within you.
The next step, step 3, would then be to make a promise. Right? You want to set the intention
to work it out with your subconscious – not to work against it.

 

So Shauna’s fear is saying to her, “Look, I’m afraid that if you become successful,
you’re going to be tied to your desk, you’re gonna be on the phone all day, you’re gonna
be even more stressed out and strapped out, have no fun, have no time for family and friends
and love and everything else you want in life.” Shauna can make her fear a non-issue by making
a promise. “Listen friend, I hear you, I understand what you’re saying, and I really
appreciate you looking out. If greater success means greater strain, more exhaustion, having
less freedom and time for myself in my life, I WON’T DO IT. I will only do it if that’s
not what it means. I promise.” And then, of course, she wants to be a good partner-in-crime
for herself to rely on, which means to keep her promise. But in any case, by making this
promise, you see, the tension is dissipated and it makes space for herself and her subconscious
to open up to the idea of success and to pursuing it.

 

Step 4 is to get examples. Dowse  subconscious in positive
examples and case studies: people whose lives have improved as a result of their success
in business, people whose freedom has increased as a result of their success; people who have
built successful businesses and have more time to do what they love.
find examples, it can be people she knows, people she doesn’t know, famous
people – it doesn’t matter. The point is to let the subconscious know it’s possible,
to let it know that it is possible to marry or to satisfy all sides of her heart and mind.
The subconscious will do anything that you tell it is possible. So the more examples
that she finds and gives, the more she encourages and reinforces the idea ‘this is definitely
possible’, and lets her subconscious know what it’s working towards.

 

Step 5 is to solidify and affirm: so the more you ingrain your new perspective in your subconscious,
the more you can capitalize on its power and its resources to facilitate and even to execute
towards your goal on your behalf. Which of course right means it’s easier to materialize,
to manifest it, to get what you want. So a good affirmation for Shauna is: “Success
increases my freedom in life.”

 

And more than an affirmation, because an affirmation, right, it implies a kind of I have to defend
or I’m proving something, and so there’s an element of doubt. You really want to think
about it like a reminder – it is a reminder, it’s a reminder of what is possible. It
will also serve as a reminder of the road, the only road in light of the promise that
she’s made above, that she is taking. She wants to repeat it as often as feels good
to her; but before you fall asleep, right before you fall asleep, right upon waking,
and during/after meditation are some of the best times to access the subconscious mind.
You just told us how to completely reprogram or get in alignment our subconscious

mind with what we want.

And capitalizing on the wisdom that exists within you, which isn’t just your ego and
your consciousness. You’re brilliant, there’s a lot of power there, there’s a lot of intelligence
there, but you can also make use of a greater amount of wisdom and insight that’s within
you too. Getting your subconscious on board with our conscious goals.
Step 1 is to… after you recognize, is to be humble.
Step 2? Get specific.
Get specific, so we wanna get the specific details about what that fear is and really
interview our subconscious and know specifically what those fears are.
Step 3 is to make a promise.
So make a commitment to yourself that you’re not gonna go there if it’s gonna mean all
those bad things that perhaps you were afraid of. You’re only gonna get the thing that
you want in the way that’s gonna feel the best for you and it’s gonna be in alignment.
Step 4 is to find examples.
Exemplary examples.
You can even be the first example on this planet to do it that way.
Step 5 is to solidify and affirm.
