How to recognize subconscious beliefs, and how to change them?
I was thinking about the strength of the beliefs that are so ingrained in us that we don't even know they're there most of the time. How do we change those beliefs when we don't even know what they are?
I was thinking it was just a matter of thinking the same thoughts over and over again until it becomes so ingrained in us that it replaces whatever older belief was there.

An affirmation has to be associated with a congruent feeling. For example some poor people may affirm "I am rich, I am wealthy" and feel like they are lying to themselves and feel frustrated because they believe they are poor.
A good way to change a belief, a scientific way so to say is to build new beliefs around existing beliefs that support it. Example? Let's say you're poor and you want to make money. Let's say you're very good at writing. You could start by saying to yourself: "I am a very good writer! That is a fact because people appreciate my writing. Could I make money by writing? There are people that make money from that so it means it is possible. This means that I could also make money from writing. So why don't I? Because I BELIEVE I can't make money doing that. But the fact is that I can. When I will believe that I can do it, it will be done" and you keep working on that.
There are many ways to install beliefs. Imagination is an efficient way because the subconscious cannot know what is real and what is not. Real is a conscious definition anyway. I just read a book that said that what you imagine is actually real, because the electrical signals interpreted by the brain are very similar to what would happen if you would actually experience what you imagine. But as with reality, if something good happens to you that never happened before, you could think it's just a coincidence and you just got lucky. But what if it happens again and again and again? The same goes with imagination. Your subconscious will keep observing the same experience and start to believe it.
It's not hard to install a belief. But it's a process that requires will, focus, discipline of thought.

SlicK explained it very well.
Mind power can change the reality.
I wrote a blog post about that if you are interested.
The mind has power to change our physical reality.

You don't have to go through yourself digging to find out what your subconscious beliefs are. You just need to take a look around.
That said an effective way to 'dig' when it's not coming up, but you may want something to occur that is being 'blocked' is to:
As to changing, I don't find just repeating affirmations particularly effective personally.
Although, affirmations still can work effectively, I just find them a bit more time consuming and there always seems to be 'remnants' of that old belief there, I don't feel that so much with the focus wheel method. If you do affirmations I have found it more effective to do them from 1) Meditative state 2) Falling to sleep/waking up 3) In front of a mirror looking in your eyes (which Claude M. Bristol describes in his book "The Magic of Believing")
Another effective method I sometimes use is described by Franz Bardon and essentially is 'eating, drinking and breathing' whatever you want. Visualizing with firm conviction in its truth, and 'impregnating' the food you eat etc with it.
(I'm not sure why I used the quotes above, since I'm not religious and from what I know you aren't either, but they just popped into my head and I felt like going with it )

Beliefs aren't really subconscious, it's just your subconsious that stores them.
It's like a computer, you need a bit of information, you pull it from your subconscious (limbic system) and boom, it's now a conscious thought.
Beliefs are just a proposition or idea you hold to be true. Gravity isn't a belief, it's a fact. "Grass is green" that's a fact.
Something like "money is hard to make" is an opinion thus a belief.
You can recognise if a belief is holding you back by the way it feels. If it doesn't feel good, it's holding you back.
As for methods of changing beliefs I agree with the above posters.

beliefs are totally subconscious
it's stuff we forget we've done over and over and then it's a pattern we rely on
best to just decide something else and think and go in a direction of choosing, instead of needing to analyze deep junk, imo
