Life Coach: 7 Questions to the Deepest Level of the Subconscious

Why isn’t anyone the mental health community asking or answering the most fundamental question for behavior change? That question is of course “What determines human behavior?” You are guessing how to help someone with depression if you cannot answer this question (“What determines human behavior?”) Following are 7 questions that will lead you to a basic understanding of how to take control of the most power influence in your life, your subconscious.

Question:
1 – Are you running your life?

Question:
2 – Do you know how the subconscious works?

Answer:
If you do not know how your subconscious works you are not running your life your life is running you.

Question:
3 – How can the subconscious possibly be running my life?

Answer:
To give you an idea of the power of the subconscious, you can speak at a rate of about two to three hundred words per minute. The subconscious runs at a rate of approximately one thousand to twelve hundred words per minute which is about four times faster than you can speak. This is why you can talk on the phone and perform other tasks like typing on the computer or driving a car because the subconscious is already programmed to do the other tasks.

You can look at the conscious mind and the subconscious mind like a tug of war with a vat of mud in the middle for whomever loses. The conscious mind is one person on one side against the subconscious, which are four people on the other side. If the conscious mind decides to move in a different direction like losing weight, increasing your fitness program, making more money, quitting smoking or any number of other things, it is usually a losing proposition because you are simply outnumbered with information.

This is the reason why spontaneous change is so difficult. Evidence of this is with the approximately 98% fail rate for people who do not maintain a desired weight loss. The dilemma is that the subconscious is not only running four times faster you also have no idea what it is doing.

Gaining Access to the Deepest Level of the Subconscious

Question:
4 – Do you ask yourself questions?

Answer:
Yes. You begin the process of asking yourself questions as soon as you get up every morning. You ask yourself questions like…What do I need to do today, what am I going to wear, what calls or emails do I need to return?

Question:
5 – Does the subconscious work on questions when you are not consciously involved?

Answer:
Yes. If you have ever asked yourself the question…What is that person’s name? It may take an hour, a day or even a week but at a time when you are not even thinking about it the person’s name will come popping into your head. The subconscious works on every question you ask even when you are not consciously involved. This process happens with every question you ask yourself.

Question:
6 – When I ask you a question where does the answer come from?

Answer:
The subconscious

When I ask you a question about questions that you ask yourself you have now gained access to the very core of the subconscious and the very beginning of what brings about an emotional state and in turn determines your behavior.

If I ask you where you went on your last vacation, you repeat the question to yourself which brings up a picture of where you went on vacation and then you are able to explain to me where you went on vacation. Without going through this process there simply would not be any communication. How you communicate with yourself is the bottom line.

What you say to yourself is more important than anything anyone will say to you or about you especially the questions you ask yourself. The questions you ask yourself represent the very core of your power or the very core your destruction. The most fundamental question of all is.

Question:
7 – What determines human behavior?

Answer:
Information

What determines human behavior is simply information and the components of this information are words and pictures. Getting control of this information from the deepest level of the subconscious will allow you to determine your emotional state your behavior and your life’s path. Getting control of this information will empower you with true control of your life as opposed to your life being a random event.
