We usually talk about how taking action helps the subconscious to create change. I think this is true and that there are also other reasons that taking action is important. Was writing this down for myself, but figured it would be good to write it here too.
Helpful points about action
- Helps your subconscious to help you. (This is the one we usually talk about.)
Taking action exposes you to more opportunities for growth and opportunities in general. You make it easier for your subconscious mind to bring what you want into your life. Request money and then go to situations where there is more wealth flowing. Request greater social skills, and then go to places where people can be social with you and you with them. It stretches and exercises the muscles in your desired area, and it also exposes you to many more chances to get what you want. This is pretty straight-forward and good.
- Allows you to observe the change
This is another important element of taking action. Taking action gives you more chances to observe your growth. If you’re manifesting strength, and then you never lift anything, you may well be getting stronger, but you will have no way of knowing it. Action does not just help the subliminal to work, it also helps you to see how the subliminal is already working. If you learn a new cooking technique that is said to produce better tasting food, but then you never cook anything, you’ll never know if it worked or not.
I personally believe that in many cases, the subliminal will create growth even if you do not ‘help’ it. But even if it does, how would you ever know if you never tried to do anything? They can be smaller steps at first, but take action to try out your new muscles, capacities, and abilities. Be happily surprised at what you find, and then go back to point 1, and let your conscious actions work together with and enhance your subconscious processes.
- Reinforces that this really matters to you
Taking action also communicates to your subconscious (and conscious) mind that what you are requesting is actually relevant and important to you. If you are not taking any action at all (big or small), how much could this possibly even matter to you, in the first place? On the other hand, if something is very, very important to you, then you will work on that area, even without the subliminal. This is a demonstration of commitment, and I think it makes the magick work with the conscious, subconscious, and unconscious minds. Intention and commitment are a big deal. Action is one straightforward way to tap into them.
