The subconscious mind is a powerful force. It controls your emotions, reactions, habits, and even thoughts daily without your knowledge. Chances are, you have some negative thoughts that sneak up on you at different times of the day. These can come from past experiences, or they may occur randomly throughout the day. Regardless of where they come from, you can use subliminal messages to help remove them from your mind and live a better life.
Ways to Remove Negative Thoughts From The Subconscious Mind
1. Acknowledge your negativity
- Recognize when you are being negative.
- Don’t be afraid to admit that you have negative thoughts. We all do, and that’s okay. Negative thoughts can be changed only if they’re recognized and acknowledged first.
- Sometimes we have bad days – it’s okay for your mind to wander sometimes.

2. Uncover the root of your negative thoughts
- Once you understand where your negative thoughts are coming from, it is time to work on removing them actively. However, you need to know that this process can take a long time and will require perseverance and patience.
- To begin, try asking yourself some questions about your life and past experiences:
- What has happened in the past that might have caused me to have these negative thoughts?
- What type of company do I tend to surround myself with?
- Am I acting out certain habits or behaviors that may be causing these negative thoughts? (e.g., drinking too much alcohol or eating unhealthy foods)
- Once you’ve identified the source of your problem, try taking steps toward changing what is causing those feelings, so they no longer bother you as much; this could involve a new diet plan or avoiding certain people who always bring out the worst in us.
3. Practice Self-Compassion
- Self-compassion is the ability to be kind to yourself when you are suffering. It doesn’t mean that you would stand by and watch your loved ones suffer, but it does mean that you can be kinder to yourself when times get tough.
- Self-compassion is a skill that can be learned, like any other habit or behavior. When we practice self-compassion, our minds become less judgmental and more accepting of ourselves. This has been shown in research studies as an effective way to improve mental health and well-being.
4. The power of your beliefs
We all have beliefs, and many of them are subconscious. These beliefs shape our reality and dictate the way we see the world. Our beliefs are so powerful that they can impact our mental and physical health.
- What you believe about yourself matters. It’s the driving force behind every action you take and every decision you make, and it affects how you interact with the world around you. If you believe your life is difficult, you will be more likely to act in ways that make it so. But if you think your life is easy, it will be easier for you to make things happen.
- Your beliefs are powerful. They can change negativity into positivity.
- If you believe that you can do it, then you will. If you believe that you are good enough, then you will be. If you believe the world is worth fighting for, you’ll fight for it.
Choose a belief that inspires greatness. A belief that encourages progress rather than stagnation. A belief that leads to an amazing future.
5. Control your state of mind to control thought patterns
What if you could control your thoughts and emotions? What if you could use your mind to control your life?
- It’s possible! And it starts with controlling your state of mind. Your thoughts make you who you are, and if you want to change the way things are going for yourself, then changing your thinking patterns is critical.
- The first step is recognizing that what happens inside our brains affects how we feel outside our brains.
- Then we need to learn how to identify those thought patterns that lead us into negative thinking patterns and replace them with positive ones.
6. Practice mindfulness
- Mindfulness is simply being aware of what’s happening around you at any given moment. It involves paying attention without judgment or criticism, simply observing what’s happening without trying to change it.
- Mindfulness helps us focus on our environment instead of letting it pass us by without noticing.
- It also allows us to be more aware of how we feel physically, mentally, and emotionally in each moment to make better decisions about how we want to act next time (instead of reacting automatically).
This means less stress and clarity because we’re not letting our emotions take over while also allowing ourselves more control over what happens next time instead of letting them control us.

7. Replace your negative thoughts
To remove negative thoughts from your subconscious mind, you need to replace them with positive ones.
There are two ways of doing this:
- Positive self–talk,
- Positive affirmations.
Both methods effectively remove negative thoughts, but I prefer using affirmations because of their simplicity and ease of use.
For example, if you have a negative thought like “I’ll never be able to do this,” then you can counter that thought by saying something like: “I am capable and competent at what I do” or “This will be easy for me!” Check this book of 52 weekly affirmations.
But don’t say it just once; say it as many times as necessary until your subconscious mind starts believing those words instead of the original ones that had caused stress in the first place!
8. Practice hard-core empathy subliminal messages
It’s important to understand that your subconscious mind is only aware of what you tell. This means that if you tell yourself negative thoughts and ideas, those are the only ones that will be able to make their way into your subconscious mind.
It can also mean that even when you feel like something negative is happening in your life, if you don’t permit yourself to experience this feeling, the universe will never allow anything harmful into your life!
Suppose you’ve been feeling down lately and can’t figure out why then try to take a step back. Step away from your routines and take some time to explore what’s bothering you. By doing this, you can get a much better grasp on how to deal with the situation in a constructive way. The next time you feel overwhelmed with negative emotions, remember that there are many ways to combat them.
