I have learned first from Napoleon Hill’s Think and Grow Rich and even more vividly from my friend and mentor  Tom “Big Al” Schreiter that the conscious mind is the size of a “pea” and the subconscious mind is as big as a hotel.  The subconscious mind rules our lives and makes all our decisions, but is as dumb as a brick.

At Art Jonak’s Mastermind event the other month it was presented as the “ant” and the “elephant“.

I work hard with the Mental Cleanse sponsored by Mentoring for Free to program my own mind and no longer let outside influences program it.  This is not an easy task, requires lots of positive self-talk and avoiding negative influences.  Constant monitoring is required for as long as, well, forever, as long as I live.  I want to hear my own thoughts coming out of my head, not someone else’s.

The other day when I was using the black and white pages of a local newspaper the Moon Valley Tattler, a perfect fit to line Sueño’s birdcage, I happened to glance at a story about a local chiropractor who was saying goodbye to everyone, that he was retiring and moving on, but that the practice was still in good hands with his partner.

Well, I felt a bit of sadness – and I didn’t even know the guy!

This really got my attention.  I’m programmed to feel loss when someone leaves.  It occurs to me that I feel loss, perhaps a fear of loss with people and objects and papers.  This may be the feeling that keeps me a pack rat.  Boy, my elephant is powerful and my ant has a lot of work to do to catch up and tweak the direction with new programming.  This was so dramatic that it has provided me with even more motivation to take control back of my “elephant”.

Wishing you control of the power of the subconscious mind in a head near you – maybe your own –
