The Secret and Subconscious Blocks – the Movie Won’t Tell You How to Identify Them

Like a lot of people, we appreciate the movie The Secret for its wisdom and how it helps to inspire people. But what if you are following all the tenants of The Secret and still are not reaching your goals?

We've witnessed a lot of realistic, seemingly "deserving" people follow the Secret's principles and still not get what they desire.

One reason they may not be making great progress in reaching their goals is because it may not yet be time to reach them.

It's important to keep taking action and along the way, meditate on the "next best step." If you still feel blocked, read on for some important information. Also, if you are fated to reach your goals, you will reach them. Unfortunately, if you aren't fated to reach a certain goal, you won't have success.

Another consideration that is not fully explained in The Secret that can make a difference between success and failure is an accurate assessment of subconscious blocks that are sabotaging success.

The subconscious mind rules your life. It completely lacks reasoning power and stores all of the hidden core beliefs, misconceptions, fears, defenses, and biases formed mostly before age ten. The subconscious mind reacts just like a fearful child; it's not rational or sensible like the conscious mind.

The challenge is that it's not always easy to know what's hidden in your unconscious mind under your conscious intent, no matter how much you meditate, express gratitude, or monitor your thoughts.

Although you may be consciously fearless, your subconscious mind may possess intense apprehension. Often, subconscious beliefs are at odds with conscious viewpoints. For example, even if you consciously desire a compatible love relationship with all of your heart, if your subconscious mind equates relationships with grief, or some other form of suffering, it will do everything in its power to generate conflict or keep you single.

As another example, the subconscious mind can influence someone enough to make them unattractive if they subconsciously equate being attractive with abuse. Or, someone who subconsciously, deeply resents rich people will subconsciously sabotage their efforts to acquire and keep wealth. It's like a hidden, super-power part of your mind that doesn't always act in your best (conscious) interests.

Until you uncover, confront, and resolve unconscious issues, your subconscious mind will interfere with your life, often opposing your conscious desires and plans. Personal issues keep you from reaching your highest potential. Subconscious thinking must be aligned with conscious desires in order to reach your goals.

How do you find out about the depths of your subconscious? Graphology, or handwriting analysis is one of the most effective ways of uncovering subconscious fears and defenses. The U.S. Library of Congress categorizes it as a branch of psychology. It's one of the quickest, most objective, most accurate, and least discriminatory forms of personality analysis in existence.

Graphology is so informative because it reveals subconscious character, the real personality, not just the persona and the one seen when a person is at his or her best. It's been used by many Fortune 500 companies and select law enforcement agencies (including some of those at the Federal level) for decades.

Instead of taking subjective personality tests, trying to effectively monitor the submerged complexities of your subconscious yourself (good luck), or enduring months of sessions with a psychologist, you can get right to the heart of the matter through handwriting analysis.

A well-trained graphologist can give you a clear, extensive assessment of your subconscious blocks and hidden fears, but their services are not inexpensive.

Graphology is the secret that will help you be even more successful with The Secret.

Very well written and most informative HUB, Scott. Thanks for posting it. YOU GOT IT right when you talked about the subconscious being compared to a super power. That sure hit home. And graphology. How fascinating. I kind of work with it myself when I do a psychic reading. I have the clients write their names, month and day of birth, colors they like now. I can pick up a lot just by HOW THEY WRITE. I have joined your fan club and look forward to your other hubs. You are obviously a very old soul with so much wisdom to impart. How refreshing. Feel free to check any of my hubs out. Mike
