The Symphony of Our Conscious and Subconscious Mind
The most complicated part of a human body is undoubtedly the “Mind,” funny, since we use it to unravel the complications we face in our lives. It is said that we humans at no point in our life have ever experienced the power our mind beholds, that is because we are made up of two minds, one mind, which seems, is not enough for what nature and the universe has planned for us, our conscious mind and then there is our subconscious mind which is filled with optimum potential, that we ourselves are not aware of, its capacity that is virtually unlimited and permanently stores everything that ever happens to us. It is the black hole connecting the flow of our beliefs, previous experience, memories and skills. Everything that we have seen, done or thought is there and that it runs and controls almost everything we do. Our conscience and subconscious mind work together in symphony to create our reality.
The communication between the conscious and the subconscious mind is bidirectional.
Every time when we have an idea, or an emotion, a memory or an image from the past, this is the subconscious mind communicating to our conscious mind. It is like our mini guidance system. It constantly monitors the information coming from our senses for dangers or opportunities, then communicates that information to the conscious mind, which we want it to communicate, and then it manipulates us to use the information we need to make the choices we actually make. That is why it is always said listen to your “gut” or always go with the first thought you have, but we humans somehow always let our conscious mind take over and ruin some of our decisions (which again is stored up by the subconscious mind under the file “learn from your mistakes” 😉.)
Like in any good partnership there needs to be a clear and regular communication between partners so each knows what is expected of them.
This way when there are problems or any issues it can be worked out before they become serious and cause major problems in our lives. In every partnership each partner takes on certain roles and responsibilities. They may change as the tenure matures but each person takes responsibility for some aspect of their partnership.
The conscious mind is the ‘Guardian to the Gates of the Subconscious Mind’ and should be vigilant to make sure only the highest quality of thoughts and images reach this part of our selves. The subconscious has no will of its own and will act upon whatever images are presented to it whether these are positive or negative.
Communicating thoughts from our conscious mind to our subconscious mind is difficult because they should be done with emotions. Only the thoughts that are conveyed with genuine emotions make it to the back of your mind. And only the thoughts that are backed up by a strong emotion stay there, both for the negative and the positive emotions. And, unfortunately, somehow the negative emotions are always more pre-dominant than the positive ones.
The subconscious mind is the powerful secondary system that runs everything in our life.
Learning how to stimulate the communication between the conscious and the subconscious minds is a powerful tool which leads our way to success, happiness and riches, our hidden most desires.
The task of the subconscious mind is to sort the information coming from our senses. Our brain is bombarded with constant information per second and it would explode if it had to review and process everything, hence we have a barrier in between – the subconscious mind. It processes everything and passes the information that is relevantfor us in that moment.
Our subconscious is designed to work for us day and night, in fact, it never stops working, but it only works with what resides within it.
The conscious and subconscious minds are designed to work together as a functioning team but the subconscious can only work with the patterns, which reside within it. Therefore, the practice of imprinting positive images and beliefs into our subconscious is so important. As we daily imprint positive images and beliefs into our subconscious mind they form patterns that are accepted by it and once accepted will begin the process of attracting people, situations and circumstances that most closely match the images we hold within.
The first step in harnessing the power of the subconscious mind is to eliminate the thoughts loaded with all our negative emotions. We need to stop with the negative self-talk and make sure that it is not loaded with emotions. Our fears often tend to come true, especially when we are very emotional about them. And all these negative self-talks produce harmful ripple effects in our lives. By eliminating these negative thoughts and countering them at their conception itself is a very important step towards climbing the ladder of success.
Our subconscious mind is subjective. It does not think or reason independently, it merely obeys the commands it receives from our conscious mind. Just as our conscious mind can be thought of as the gardener, planting seeds, our subconscious mind can be thought of as the garden, in which the seeds nurture. This is another reason why harnessing the power of positive thinking is important to the foundation of your entire thought process.
There is a story we have heard while growing up, about the guardian angel that always follows us around. When we say to our self “my life is awful”, it writes down awful life. When we say, “my job is boring”, it writes down a boring job. And when we say, “my body is ugly”, it writes down ugly body. And then it goes on and grants us all those wishes because they are filled with strong emotions being sadness, disappointment, regret and self-loathing. That angel is none other than our “Subconscious mind.”
Our subconscious mind will also act on thoughts that are conveyed with desire. Powered by desire, it will do anything in order to obtain the object of the desire. It would also open all available channels to the conscious mind for information on how to achieve them.
When our goal becomes the consuming obsession of our life and we have the burning desire to see it come true, then we will be successful. When we have set our subconscious mind on the task backed up by that strong emotion, then it would allow us to see the opportunities in life that would lead us to our goal.
As we already have established, the communication between the conscious and the subconscious mind is a two-way process, we give our subconscious mind tasks, desires and goals and it presents us back information, opportunities and ideas leading to our dreams and goals. Have you ever wondered why there are certain people who easily spot new opportunities? This is because their subconscious mind feeds them more information on that specific subject, than what the other people usually get. You ever noticed that as soon as you really decide to do something, there soon comes an opportunity that allows you to do it? This is because when you make the decision, you form a thought and imbue it with desire and faith. And you suddenly start receiving the information that you need to achieve it.
We need to come into a relationship with our subconscious by desiring contact.
We must educate the conscious mind about the existence of how the subconscious mind functions and its true potential through daily meditations. Until we are aware of its existence, and not just in an intellectual way, you cannot work with the subconscious mind effectively. Contemplate daily the existence of this second mind. Think about the fact that the subconscious is part of the etheric web of all reality. Think about the potentials of imprinting into it and how it works. Affirm to yourself daily, “My subconscious mind is my partner in success.” This is a very powerful affirmation and has a threefold effect. First, by affirming “my subconscious mind,” you are educating the conscious mind to the existence of this second mind. Secondly, by affirming “my partner,” you are reminding the conscious mind of the possibilities and advantages of working with the subconscious. And thirdly, it is your partner “in success.” By affirming this you are building up a success vibration; you are weaving success into your mind and life.
Finally, have a dialogue with your subconscious mind. Praise it and let it know how appreciative we are of its power and ability to create and interact with the etheric web. Tell it what you want to create and what imprints you are presently working with. Let it know that you are working diligently to have a functioning relationship established. Get to know this part of yourself as a separate and neglected component that is being welcomed back into your life. By doing all the above you will find that you will enter into a “relationship” with your subconscious mind, and when you do, a whole new level of working with it reveals itself to you.
The symphony of our conscious and subconscious minds for success is absolutely incredible and available to anyone who has the discipline and vision on how to work with it.
