Summary: Our subconscious mind can be very impactful. Not only for our behaviours but also in our bodies – at a molecular level. This article reveals how.

We recently discovered an article, “Study Reveals Gene Expression Changes With Meditation,” citing a study published in the Journal of Psycho­neuro­endocrinology.

It talks about just how powerful our subconscious blocks can be in terms of governing our life, and even our biological makeup.

The Impact Of Our Subconscious Mind


The study reveals just how impactful our subconscious mind can be in not only our behaviors but also how it can create physical changes in our bodies at a molecular level.

Here’s the key element of the article that summarizes the mind-blowing experiment:

“The study investigated the effects of a day of intensive mindfulness practice in a group of experienced meditators, compared to a group of untrained control subjects who engaged in quiet non-meditative activities.

After eight hours of mindfulness practice, the meditators showed a range of genetic and molecular differences… which in turn correlated with faster physical recovery from a stressful situation.”

Biologist and expert on subconscious beliefs, Dr. Bruce Lipton, offers more profound insight, which will give you a clear idea of why changes in our beliefs need to happen at a subconscious level for it to have any meaningful and lasting effect in our day-to-day lives.

A word from an expert on subconscious beliefs

Dr Bruce Lipton
Dr. Bruce Lipton, biologist and expert, on subconscious beliefs and their effects on our genes.

Here’s what Dr. Lipton says:

“The major problem is that people are aware of their conscious beliefs and behaviors, but not of subconscious beliefs and behaviors. Most people don’t even acknowledge that their subconscious mind is at play when the fact is that the subconscious mind is a million times more powerful than the conscious mind and that we operate 95 to 99 percent of our lives from subconscious programs.

Your subconscious beliefs are working either for you or against you, but the truth is that you are not controlling your life because your subconscious mind supersedes all conscious control. So when you are trying to heal from conscious level-citing affirmations and telling yourself you’re healthy — there may be an invisible subconscious program that’s sabotaging you.”

This is part of the reason why we’re such big believers in methods that alter subconscious beliefs.

And another great article on the subject, this time from the New York Times.

“…researchers do not yet know how or when, exactly, unconscious drives may suddenly become conscious; or under which circumstances people are able to override hidden urges by force of will. Millions have quit smoking, for instance, and uncounted numbers have resisted darker urges to misbehave that they don’t even fully understand.

Yet the new research on priming makes it clear that we are not alone in our own subconsciousness. We have company, an invisible partner who has strong reactions about the world that don’t always agree with our own, but whose instincts, these studies clearly show, are at least as likely to be helpful, and attentive to others, as they are to be disruptive.
