EPISODE 49: Using Your Subconscious Mind To Tap Into Who You Need To BE To Create The Life Of Your Dreams

September 4, 2019

You’ve heard me talk about the power of dreamtime and using your subconscious mind to problem solve and in this episode I go further and talk about how to make dreamtime work even better for you.

Relative to “who you need to be,” I’m often asked….“Jim, if I’ve never been a millionaire before, what ways would I need to be in my mind to make it happen?”

Even when I give people ideas, they many times struggle finding the right way of being to help them create the life they want.

So….in this episode I talk about:


And, the specific question you can ask your unconscious mind for deeper understanding.

As well, I talk about “setting your intention” to maximize your mind’s direction during dreamtime. Not only do I talk about asking your subconscious mind for assistance, I go deeper and share how to ensure your answers come to you:

Transformational Takeaway

Set your intentions for dreamtime answers.

And in this episode, I'm going to talk even more about using your subconscious mind, and dream time to create anything that you want in life. Now, unlike the other episode that I did, in this particular episode, I'm going to talk about how to discover the specific identity that you want to create, using dream time how to find those answers, but the specific identity you want to create, to have anything that you want to have, and anything that you want to create in life.

Increase the Power of Dreamtime With the BE DO HAVE Method.

Okay, so dreaming and the subconscious mind. Now, if I'm correct here, I believe it was number Episode Number 17, where I did a complete episode. And it was it was as comprehensive as I wanted it to be at that time. But Episode number 17 was on using dream time and the power of your subconscious mind to create whatever it is that you want to create in life. Working with dream time, I once read that somebody wrote this quote, where dream time is your superpower. Now, I highly suggest that you go back and you listen to episode number 17. Why? Because you know, I'm going to just as I as I want to be on every episode just transparent with you. I'm doing a lot of video marketing right now. And we have a video coming out about dreamtime and the subconscious mind. And I've already created this podcast and I'm like, you know, there's no point of going back and just redoing a podcast that I've already done or me and just rehashing it. So I want to take it a bit further this time with this podcast, than Episode 17. And I want to give you a technique here that I really didn't talk about in Episode Number 17. But or, and so I don't have to repeat all of Episode Number 17 again, just go back and listen to that episode. Either listen to it now or after you're done here. But at some point, go back and listen to episode number 17. That way, I don't have to talk just stay here my self talk.

But what I want to add in this episode is a twist to episode number 17. And in just a moment, I want to talk about some other things first, but I want to talk about using your intention using the power of intention to create and dream time. Because I know in the last episode I talked obviously about well, obviously to me, I talked about a lot of things relative to dream time. But in this episode, we want to add something else that's going to make it a little more powerful for you. Okay, so you know, if you've been following me for any amount of time, and I do not mean you know, mean to sound like a broken record, if you're new to following me, go back please to episode number one and start the series right there. I can't tell you the amount of communication I get, whether it be you know, messages on Instagram or emails to my support team, and they send them to me, I can't tell you the amount of people that that have actually started from the very beginning and just listen to them all the way, you know, all the way through.

We tend as human beings to, you know, start wherever we enter. And many times we think well that's old content, that's not as valuable. That's not true at all, in the case of my podcast, because I don't know that everything sequentially builds on each other. And I don't know that it's all a perfect fit as it builds yet everything from episode one to episode right now, no matter how many episodes I do, whether it's 200, everything will complement everything. It's like they're all pieces of a puzzle. So you probably have been you know, you've heard me talk about BE DO HAVE a lot in the BE DO HAVE formula, which I think the podcast last week. And I say I think last week because I put out so much content that it runs together was all about the be do have formula.

So what I want to talk about here is BE DO HAVE an intention as they pertain to dream time. The reason that I'm doing this, and to be just absolutely transparent with you, I had to find a way and my mind, I said literally I sat down for 90 minutes trying to weave this together for you, to give you massive, you know, massive, massive takeaways like I hope to do on every episode. And it dawned on me that and I just popped in my head that there are so many people that send me communication, they'll send them to support desk or whatever. And they will say things like, you know, Jim, I've never been a millionaire before. How do I be that, or I've never created x, y, z? How do I be the kind of person that I need to be to create the outcomes that I want.

Now when I talk about BE DO HAVE just go back to the last episode and I explain fully the concepts of have to be and be to have most people work backwards they work from HAVE DO BE and where we want to work from because we're conscious Transformers is we want to work from be do have, who do I have to be to do the things that I need to do to have the things that I want to have? So let me ask you, how often have you ever asked yourself? Who Who do I need to be in order to have an extraordinary and unimaginable life? And that I said that right? unimaginable or not yet? Let me put it that way? Not yet. Imagine life there are like that fits better?

But have you ever asked yourself really just sat down and got quiet and said? What ways, what ways what I need to be to create an extraordinary life experience for me. Now most of you probably have not done that. And then for many of you that have based upon the feedback that I get, many of you have like you know I as I just said I've not you know I've Jim, I've not been the millionaire, I have not been this I have not been that. So what ways what I want to be myself to create that. So we're going to actually start using dream time. And we're going to dig into that for you.

Okay, also, you know, if you have followed me for any amount of time, you've constantly heard me talk about identity. And many people struggle as I said, they struggle because they're trapped in their 3d mind that when I say 3D mind, meaning let's say your name is Susan, well, your craft and Susan's mind and Susan's past, or if your name is john, and your trapped on John's mind, and John's past. And what I want to do is I want to take you outside of what I call 3d meaning the third dimension bag, a scan of John or Susan. And I want to take you to a deeper place where you pull your answers from the universe, about identity in ways that you need to be to create the most amazing life experience that you can have while you're here.

Now, you've heard me also say that your identity, it drives, it drives your entire life. I mean, whatever we do in the world is a reflection of our identity. If we smoke, then we are smokers. If we are broke, then we are brokers. Well, not really brokers, but we're actually poor or broke in our mind. So whatever we have in an external experience, meaning 3D world bank accounts, body relationships, whatever, whatever we have in the external world is a reflection of our internal world. And I'm sure you've heard all the motivational speakers say that, and then you hear me say, well, it's a reflection of your identity. So a question that I have for you right. Now, another question, and you know, that I asked a lot of questions is, what is the highest identity that would serve you? What is the highest identity that would help you have the experience of life that you want? Now?

And by the way, I'm noticing that I'm saying now a lot. So anyway, I'll be mindful of that. Now, and I'm just kidding, that I'll be mindful, because it's just habit. So for me, you probably have heard me say before that where I operate from as many people say, they're human beings having you know, their their spiritual beings having human experiences. And where I work from, you might have heard me say before is that I am a cosmic being having a human experience. So what that means is, I mean, I was somewhere before I came to this planet, and I'm going to be similar, when I leave, it's just not going to be in this body and on this planet.

So when I work from that place, which is it's just I've done it for so long that it resonates with me at a core level, is being a cosmic being means that I can create whatever it is that I want to create. Why? Because I can draw on the power of the universe. And because I'm part of it, and that's physics as well. Now, you, this might not work for you yet, I don't know where you are in your own personal evolution. But I go back to again, and I want you to get emotional with as many I want you to flush the emotional. I mean, I'll go deep with this and feel this, but what identity would work for you, meaning, who would you have to be? And what ways would you have to be to create the extraordinary life experience that you want. Now, I also want to point out that we have many of us have two identities, not even knowing it, let me explain this very quickly, is we have what I call a primary identity and a secondary identity.

So the secondary the primary identity is who we are to soul and core level, and I don't even know want to use the word identity, if we can even get close to explaining that. The secondary identity is whatever you whatever identity you've given to the bag of skin, you walk around in the bag, the bag of bones that you are. So I could say my primary identity is that I am a very, very powerful, infinite cosmic being. That is my primary identity. Now, I do want to point out that that primary identity also has Dharma meaning, a sequence in order of being and things to do while I'm here. However, my secondary identity is Jim for 10. I grew up in a small Texas town, etc, etc, etc. went to college here there, my hair color, is this, all this other stuff? That's what I call a secondary identity. Most people get trapped in their secondary identity, never stopping to think, well, what is my primary identity? Who? Who am I? Who am I, at a soul level?

Who am I at a soul level is a pretty simple answer. You're a soul. I mean, it doesn't get any easier than that. But what I want to point out is, even though you're a soul, something that I just alluded to, is that we all have Dharma, the definition of Dharma, I read a couple of definitions over the years. But basically, it's a sequence of being meaning that you've got things to do while you're here. What is it that your soul is to do while you're here? So some people actually confuse Dharma and karma. And I look at both. But what I look at is even though I'm a cosmic soul here, and by the way, so are you even if you don't recognize it as that, but I look at what is my Dharma, and what identity what I need, what identity would serve my highest purpose, which, which means my evolution, and me fulfilling my dharma.

Let me share something with you here. And I think I've mentioned this on the podcast, and just bear with me as I go through this, okay. You know, I've worked at the Shaalan for, I don't know, 2324 years now, it's been quite a while this lifetime. And something he introduced me to a lot of years ago is, is I'm going to call it the library of life. But it's not just that, and I'm generalizing a little too much there. But let's just say that everything in life is a teacher, everything, the plants, the trees, the animals, the wind, everything is a teacher, everything brings a message. And many years ago, he introduced me to what's called animal totems, meaning every animal carries what I call a medicine with it.

The Native Americans actually called that animal medicine and every animal has some meaning to it. So in my daily life, and just again, like amigos several places in this particular episode. And by the way, if you're sitting here going, What is this, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah. I talked about this a bit of my Transformational Coaching Programs. And candidly, I am really, I'm shocked, I'm flabbergasted at how many people take to it and they find so much life, wisdom, extreme life, wisdom in their lives when they start paying attention to animal totems. Now, in Native American and the animal Totem cards, I use some particular cards called the medicine cards.

And I think there's like 50 cards, and the cards are, like 15 different animals, the fox, the otter, the whale, the brown bear, you know, spider, raccoon, skunk, Black Panther, dragon fly, and Turkey and, you know, 50 different animals. And when I pulled my life animal many years ago, which this particular card deck will teach you how to do it, and they're just called the medicine cards. I don't know who they're by, but they're in a light blue box, get them on Amazon. And when I pulled my life card many years ago, before I did it, I was like, I want the Black Panther. I want the cheetah, like I want the cool animal, you know? And I pulled the turkey.

And I'm like, What the hell, my life animal is a turkey? Are you kidding me? Really. I mean, it really bites I got the turkey. And when I opened the book, there's a book with the cards and turkeys about giving. And in that moment, I got it because it resonates with me emotionally, like I'm talking to you about and then we're going to tie this back to dream time. It resonates emotionally. And that's my life is I'm here to serve. That's, I think, you know that by this point listening, that's what I'm here to do is just let me serve. And let me serve fully and let me use my life well, by serving. So I do have the identity here. So I'm going to, you know, bring and for you.

I do have the identity of I don't call myself a turkey, but I have the identity of my highest value of someone who serves. So the point here is so many people will send me emails or messages and say, but what identity? Well, that's why I asked you earlier, what identity could you have? That would give you the most powerful experience of life? Okay, so I covered that, and as I said just a few minutes ago is that most people work from secondary identity, which is who they've learned to become, and then they actually search forever. Well, you know, what identity serves me? Well, obviously, there's a lot of parts of your secondary identity that do not serve you. But let's look at your primary identity. So I would say to conquer ties us and it's not, this is not complete, it's not just like, the end all be all me. But it's working from a higher level that I am a cosmic being who's here to evolve, I'm here to grow, and specifically, I am here to serve.

So I must be those ways to fulfill my Dharma and to have the highest experience of life. Okay, so hopefully that makes sense. So what I want to look at next is, I want to talk in just a moment about actually how you can find this answer for you or this clarity for you. Okay, so in Episode Number 17, I've covered pretty much all the basics, at least to the degree that I bring a topic here to the podcast is, you know, what is dreaming and that we're all Dreamers. And we have daytime dreaming, and we have nighttime dreaming and people think are different, but they're really the same thing.

It's a matter of awareness, which is very, very powerful. It's a matter of heightened awareness to understand actually, that we are one being at all times. We're just having different experiences. So I'm not going to go through all of that right now in this episode. So as I said, and I repeat myself many times for a reason, because repetition is the mother of all learning. So I reiterate, go back and listen to the episode on dreaming. I do want to recapitulate here that in that episode number 17. I think the predominant theme of that that episode was actually using a dream time to solve problems.

Why? Because in dreamtime, you are pure, unfettered consciousness, you don't have the hindrance of your left, you know, your left brain analytical mind, you don't have the hindrance of your left brain thinking about your past history. Literally, you merge with the universe, you are pure, unfettered consciousness, your unconscious mind which is 100% active at all times, but in particular, and dream time, its job is to solve problems for you. So what we want to do is in dreamtime, we want to actually pass whatever problems we have the dream time, and ask the unconscious mind to bring the answers to you.

We want to use higher mind guidance. So this is what I'm suggesting that you do. Now, here's a question that you could ask and I'm going to give you the exact question it could be this is you could ask which I teach an episode number 17 is ask your unconscious mind to bring the answers to you. It will bring the answers to you it can be in terms of agreement in terms of a metaphor in terms of an aha, I got it in terms of an epiphany, but in some way the subconscious mind will bring the answer to you.

So a question and then I'm going to actually make this stronger for you. So a question that you can ask yourself, because many of you have been asking me a question is this? What is the most powerful way that I can be to create blank, and then put in the blank, whatever you want? It could be a million dollar business, it could be perfect health? It could be global impact? It could be whatever you want. But that's the question. If you're not driving, please write it down. And the question is this, what is the single most powerful, powerful way that I can be to create blank? And obviously and that blank goes, whatever that you're searching for? or looking for the answer for?Now. What I want to add here, what we want to use next, and here's the glue that makes it happen. And I did not really talk about this in Episode Number 17. is I'm going to say this very slowly. And it's very simple. It's just one sentence, and I'm going to dig into this a little bit is we want to set our intention.

We want to set our intention that the answer to the question of what is the most powerful way that I can be to create blank, we set our intention that the answer will come to us. Now what many people do is they actually ask the question, but they have no intent and their intention. And they're kind of like well, maybe it'll come to me maybe it won't, I don't know, I'm yeah, I'm going to be wishy washy, wishy washy about using this process. Don't know, well, in that, in that moment, your intention is all over the place. So you're not going to get the answer, most likely, you're not going to what you want to do again, is ask the question, and set your intention that the answer will come to you.

Alright, next, some of you and I know just based upon my energy and my following, following the people that I attract, when I say setting your intention, probably a lot of you know, at least analytically what I mean, there are a few of you that are like Well, I don't know what you mean. So let me dig into it here. Okay, so setting your intention is, we live in a universe you've heard me talk about before quantum physics, physics, quantum dimensions, physics, we live in a universe. And there's electrons, neutrons and protons. I mean, it's just physics. Okay. However, there's what Deepak Chopra used to call like, it's a cosmic soup that we live in. I mean, everything is part of everything. So I'm going to try to make this as simple as possible.

But let's say for example, that this cosmic soup that we're all in, we're part of it, when you set your intent, which is intent to cosmic soup is intent. But when you set your intention, let me give you a metaphor here, I'm just kind of babbling. Let me get, let me give it to you this way. Let's say that you have a piece of Plato or a piece of clay, and it's just a flat piece of clay. And you take your feet and it's clay, and you can see it and it's smooth and flat. And you take your fingers and your hand and you press down in that clay. And then you remove your hand from the clay, what you've created is you have created a an indelible impression, you created an impression of your hand on that clay.

There we go, I got it out. So that's what I wanted to share with all of you. So when you actually, when you set your intention, which I'll give you some examples, when you set your intention that is like using your mind to impress upon the universal clay. Now, as I said, you know this is physics and a lot of people think it's who you know, we were when all this kind of stuff. It's not it's physics. And we're all bio electromagnetic beings, as I talked about it, Episode Number nine how people use the law of attraction to repel from them. We are all physics and electrons, neutrons and protons. The bag of skin you're in right now is electrons, neutrons and protons and bio electromagnetic.

So don't you think the bag of skin you're walking around in? Don't you think and don't you believe and don't use see how it interacts with the cosmic electrons, neutrons, protons and physics, we are all part of everything. But when you use your intention, it's as simple as this. When you set when you use intent, and you set your intention, I'm going to show you what it looks like. Alright, so my vacation home is in. And I mentioned Sedona, Arizona only because I'm very partial. It's a very, very powerful place. And so my vacation home is there. And I've been looking for a while for the right air quote what the house my house. And I watched the MLS the multiple listing service every day, when I was getting serious about, you know, finding a property there.

And one day, the very first day that this property came on the market, I looked at the pictures, and this is what I said, I'm going to slow down here. But this is what I said. And I wish you could see my body language, but I'm going to use my voice tone to to convey this story. When I saw the property, this is what I said that ,that is my house. Now I didn't yell it, I didn't scream it. But I'm doing that for a fact because you can't see me physically. But I want you to pick up on my voice tone, I owned that house. In my mind. I knew that house even though I didn't I didn't even go out and look at it till three weeks later, I knew that house was mine.

And that's what what I mean by setting your intention is that you know that it's already done. Let me give you another example here is a metaphor a way and analogy is for the most part, when you put an envelope into a FedEx box, now you put them on envelope and a postal box, you don't know what's going to get there or not. And generally it does, but you're like, and it might not get there. But let me ask you every time you have mailed something FedEx, you have mailed it with confidence, you're like, I already know what's going to be there, I got a tracking number, of course, it's going to be there.

Notice the difference between for most of you the difference between putting a piece of mail and a mailbox and a piece of mail and FedEx notice a difference in your level of confidence. One is like, Well, I think it's going to get there. And the other is like I know it's going to get there. That's what I mean by using your intention. And when you ask the question, what is the single most powerful way that I can be to create whatever it is that you want to create? And you give this to yourself subconscious mind before dream time, there's a takeaway, because again, in sleep time and dream time, you're pure, unfettered consciousness. So you ask the question, before dream time. And here's the clue, I think it's all coming together is that you set your intention that you will receive a very clear answer.

Now, I want to point out also you can use this with anything, any question you know, you're asking or anything. But I know that again, I get it all the time. I mean, it's probably one of the most frequent questions is Who do I have to be? So I can sit there and and go all analytical on people and explain it or I can say, you know, what, toss it to your subconscious mind, and dream time and then have the intention, set the intention that the answer will come to you about the way or all the ways or the most powerful way that you need to be to create that life experience that you want.

So that pretty much wraps it up. In a nutshell, what we're talking about is using dream time, obviously go back and listen to episode number 17. Using dream time to discover and by the way, if I give you analytical, here's what you know, here, here's where you got to be. Many of you will get in your analytical brain and you'll be stuck there. That's why we're doing this episode, partly because I've got video coming out also. But everything works. Everything works in terms of what I call synchronicity.

So to me, it's no surprise that this particular episode corresponds to the fact that many people actually email me or message the team and say, well, who do I be? So it all works together perfectly. So your takeaways are, you're going to use dream time to ask your unconscious mind. Who do I need to be? Or what is the most powerful way that I can be to create x, y, z? And then you're going to set your intention that that answer comes to you. Okay, so you're doing transformational takeaway is that you can use your dreams, to lead you to a higher purpose and to lead you to answers as to who you need to be to have the highest and most powerful experience of life. And then you're going to use and you're going to set your intention that that way of being comes to you either in dreamtime and metaphor or in an aha or simply just in unknowing.

Okay, so the next episode is a transformational story. And I have one of my students, Lisa, that I'm visiting with. And while I have Lisa's permission because we laugh about it in the interview, but Lisa was a hot mess when I met her. She was in an unhealthy marriage. She has three young kids, her business was not where she wanted it to be. She was mentally struggling and a lot of ways she was in a codependent relationship that really didn't have any power. And at and Lisa has gone from being an enabler and an unhealthy relationship codependent being her words, we agreed, and we laughed about it being a hot mess, to now a very powerful woman. She's no longer in that relationship.

And she's running an extremely successful business. Her story is a phenomenal story. And if you have at any point in your life been trapped anywhere. And by the way, you're going to hear themes in my call and the interview of Lisa that you've heard from the doc and you've heard from Jennifer and you've heard from Katie, and you've heard from other transformational stories and interviews, you're going to hear an additional a theme and my conversation of Lisa. So make sure that you tune in. Okay, that wraps up this episode, and I will catch you over on the next podcast episode. Do what you can to make it a great day today. Bye bye.
