Art and brain washing is what I’m going to write about… a type of mind control. However, I am going to talk to you about brain washing yourself to believe in yourself.
When you set out to achieve something such as selling your art you should engage your brain by repeating to yourself a mantra and by using visualization so that your subconscious
works with you to achieve your goals. What we have between our ears is the most powerful computer on this planet. Our human brain is such a powerful organ and it’s a good idea to have it work for you instead of against you. Programming your subconscious is still an overlooked concept. Many books have been written about using your subconscious such as Think and Grow Rich, The Magic of Believing and The Secret. If you
practice the teachings in these books you will achieve those things that you desire. When you feel doubt you should have a mantra that you repeat over and over to yourself to get rid of the doubt. Something as simple as “I have sold my art” works. A simple phrase repeated over and over will sink in. It needs to be in the past tense as if it has already happened. You need to picture in your mind having already achieved the goals that you desire. Picture it over and over and see yourself as having already achieved that thing and then let it go. When you get the urge to do something, maybe call someone or paint a certain subject or approach a certain gallery, do it. Follow those urges. It’s your subconscious working for you, nudging you.
I have used my subconscious many times to get the thing that I want. I figure if I’m going to work this hard to go after something I might as well engage my subconscious at the same time to make things a bit easier.
Good luck on your journey…
