Do you know people who seem to get everything in life they desire – the perfect relationship, an incredible job, financial abundance – and their lives are filled with joy and happiness? They seem to have the Midas touch. 

Are you one of these people? If so, you probably don’t need to read any further because you have tapped into your inner power. However, if you want to create a more fulfilling life, whether it is deeper relationships, peace and tranquility or physical or mental healing, it’s time to “release the kraken” so you can create what you want right here and now. 

What I am referencing is releasing negative beliefs that are unknown to us but trapped in our subconscious mind. Some of you may remember the documentary The Secret (2006) which focused on the Law of Attraction. It was new and exciting at the time, and everyone was talking about it, however, since then, science has made leaps and bounds in discoveries of the power of our subconscious minds.  

Many people have challenges in physical healing, creating or bringing what they desire into their lives because of deep-seated subconscious traumas and beliefs which are blocking their power to create a fulfilling life. A powerful book which further explains the blocks in our subconscious is The Emotion Code by Bradley Nelson, DC. Nelson’s theory suggests that negative emotions from past experiences can become trapped in the body at a cellular level causing physical and emotional discomfort. These trapped emotions can be released through a process of identifying the specific emotion and using various techniques to release it, such as magnetic therapy or visualization.   

Healing the subconscious is a powerful tool for personal transformation and inner growth. It is a process of becoming aware of and releasing subconscious patterns, traumas and limiting beliefs that are blocking us from our highest potential. It is based on the understanding that our subconscious holds the answers to our emotional, physical and mental well-being. By becoming more aware and releasing old patterns, we can break free from cycles of repeated patterns and gain clarity on our life’s path.  Healing the subconscious can also uncover new potentials and create positive new patterns in our lives. It can help us reach our goals faster and create healthier, more harmonious relationships with ourselves and those around us.

Working with the subconscious involves utilizing techniques and methods that can help access and influence the deeper layers of the mind beyond our conscious awareness. Common techniques include mindfulness, visualization, affirmations, meditation, breathing and sound therapy which are intended to help individuals identify and overcome psychological barriers, limiting beliefs and negative thought patterns that may be holding them back. These methodologies can help individuals relax their conscious mind, allowing access to deeper levels of awareness and a greater potential for positive change.  

Working with the subconscious mind can be useful for personal growth, healing emotional wounds, achieving goals and “releasing the kraken” that is keeping you from manifesting all you desire.
