The Power of Suggestion: How You Can Use It to Change Your Life!

By Utilising “The Laws of Suggestion” You Can Make Positive Change

Did you know that the way you suggest things to yourself, and even what you think about, can significantly impact your life?

By understanding and using the powerful Three Laws of Suggestion, you can make positive changes to your thoughts, behaviours, and overall well-being. These simple yet powerful laws can be employed by anyone to create a positive shift in their life.

1: Concentrated Attention

This first law states that when you focus your attention on an idea repeatedly, it starts to come true naturally.

This is like when you can’t get a catchy jingle out of your head, when you keep thinking about something you want, or continually worry about something, etc.

To utilize this law, choose a specific goal or change you want to make, then repeat positive affirmations related to it regularly. Make sure the affirmation is positive. E.g. “I eat all I need at mealtime” instead of “I won’t snack any more.”  Or: “I am confident and capable in every situation.” instead of “I won’t worry/be concerned/afraid anymore.”

There is a says that goes: “Fake It ‘Til You Make It.” So, even if you don’t feel that way at the start, stick with it and keep going!

2: Reversed Effect

This law teaches us that trying too hard to achieve something can make it more difficult. Think of how you struggle to remember something when you desperately want to recall it. Instead we say things to ourselves like: “I’ve forgotten it.” or “I can’t remember.” which means we are actually giving ourselves negative messages.

To apply this law positively, relax and let go of the need to force change.

Instead, visualize yourself already having achieved your goal or feeling the desired way.  This gentle approach allows your subconscious mind to accept the suggestions more naturally.

TIP: If do forget something, tell yourself “I’ll remember this soon” and then put it out of your mind. Or, just before you go to sleep, ask your subconscious to give you the answer while you sleep, while tapping the middle of your forehead.

 3: Dominant Effect

This law suggests that strong emotions can replace weaker ones. You can use this to your advantage by attaching strong positive emotions to your goals.

When you think about your desired change, imagine how you will feel when you’re successful, and connect those feelings (excitement, happiness, success) to that outcome. Your emotions will reinforce the suggestion and make it more compelling to your subconscious mind.

How Best to Utilise The Laws of Suggestion

To use these laws effectively, follow these steps: the Brain and how using Hypnotherapy can assist the Laws of Suggestion

  1. Choose a specific goal: Identify what you want to change or achieve in your life, whether it’s building confidence, overcoming a fear, or breaking a bad habit.
  2. Create positive affirmations: Craft short, positive statements that reflect your desired outcome. Use present tense language and make them personal to yourself.
  3. Repeat with focus: Regularly repeat these affirmations with concentration and belief. The more you concentrate on these positive ideas, the more they become a part of your subconscious mind.
  4. Set out a plan for your goal: List the outcome and when you want to achieve it by. Then break it down into smaller bite size chunks. Or you can construct a Story Board or Mind Map, if you are more creative.
  5. Engage your imagination:  Imagine, or get a sense or a felling, yourself already experiencing the desired change. Imagine how it feels, looks, and sounds. Make the experience as vivid as possible to evoke strong emotions. Think of this regularly.
