Conscious and Subconscious Mind - Unraveling The Secret Power of Your Mind•
Posted on August 17 2018
Sometimes, when you are trying to lead a more fulfilling life, it seems like nothing would budge. Even with the Law of Attraction. But the thing is, the Law of Attraction is constantly working, never stopping for a bit. Then, the only other conclusion is that you are doing something wrong and that magic within you refuses to spark up. The good news is that you are in charge. You hold power in your mind, both parts - the subconscious and conscious mind. You can make the Law of Attraction work by learning more about your subconscious and conscious mind.
What is the conscious mind?
Let's start at the beginning and talk about something you know best - the conscious mind. The conscious part of your mind is the logical part of your being. Every idea that you ever came into contact with is a choice. You can let it affect you, or you can let it go. Every thought that you had in your mind is part of the conscious mind. This is the part of your mind that has an intellect and goes through all the information that you are coming in contact with. In other words, whether it is a dress that you were checking out the other day or a quantum equation, your thoughts take residence in your conscious mind.
How does the conscious mind work?
Well, it's pretty simple actually. Your conscious mind is easy to understand. All the information around you and ideas that you come into contact with are either going through your mind and affect you or, you are ignoring them. So, you are the filter that decides what will go through to the conscious mind and what you will form thoughts about. This means that you are in absolute control all the time. Scary right? You probably didn't even realize how much control you have until now. Just think about it, all the negative thoughts, you are the one letting them in. And those pesky thoughts are the root of all trouble. No wonder your magical spark is not a burning fire until now. But, what happens next? Well, every little thought you let through turns into images. Images turn into emotions fast. And those images and emotions are sent out to the subconscious mind for further processing.
What is the subconscious mind?
The subconscious part of the brain is the uncharted territory. It is an enormous database of everything that you ever let into your mind. It is a program that has a primary mission to accept every information it has been given and act accordingly. But there is a knack. The subconscious mind doesn't have intellect, reason or logic. It only understands images and emotions.
How does the subconscious mind work?
Emotions are just another word for vibes. Think of it like an equation with variables. You give values to the variables to get a result. But, depending on those variables you can get many results. However, no matter the result you get, the equation doesn't change. And that is how it is with the subconscious mind. It works on a program that never changes. The only variables are the vibes and the images it receives. Then according to the information it receives, it calculates the result and the actions to get that result. And then, you act according to it. Every tiny reaction creates ripples that come back to you through the Law of Attraction. So, the question is, how can you spark your magic up if you don't take better control of your thoughts?
Differences between conscious and subconscious mind
Well, the main difference between the conscious and subconscious mind is obvious. While the conscious mind is in control of what the subconscious mind receives, the subconscious mind holds all the power. The subconscious mind receives all the information that is fed to it, and it has to accept them. The conscious mind chooses the information that it wants to process. And this is very important for you to understand - no one can make you think something that you don't want to. You choose the little seeds called information that will further create ripples, activating the Law of Attraction, and you will receive the fruits of those seeds. Often, not quite the harvest you were hoping for.
How to tune the conscious and subconscious mind
So, how can you change this mean cycle? How can you become in charge of your life, and become happier? Well, of course by learning how to control your conscious and subconscious mind. And, since the conscious mind is in control of the information flow, that means that all you have to work with is the conscious mind and the subconscious mind will follow. But, it's not as simple as it sounds. In this modern era, with a constant overload of information, no wonder that the control over your thoughts is lost. Just think about it, wherever you turn, whatever you do, everything around you feeds you information. There is no one unique way to change overnight but, there are some things that can help you. Here is what you could do:
-Set the right goals - If it doesn't excite you and scare you at the same time, then there will be no progress. After all, your subconscious mind has been fed the same information over and over again. Keeping you in the same paradigm, in that comfortable bubble is all it knows. That is why you should reevaluate your goals and try to check your emotional response when you think about them.
-Meditate - Meditation is a great practice to pick up if you are trying to gain better control over your mind. Truly, there is no simpler way of calming your thoughts than with meditation. Plus it has some amazing benefits. If you are a beginner, consider using some tools to help you focus.
-Don't worry about the how - No matter what goal you have in mind, the more you think about how you are going to achieve it the bigger the mess that you will create. Every time something doesn't go according to plan, you will feel devastated which will feed your subconscious the wrong information. So, don't plan, visualize and act.
-Don't think, act - Believe. Believe in yourself because you are magic. And one day, you will get there! We know it and so should you. So stop thinking and start acting. There isn't an easier way to do this. Don't dwell on the little things, act when an opportunity presents itself.
-Surround yourself with loving people - Thoughts turn into images, images into emotions and emotions are vibes. Surround yourself with the people that raise your vibration, your true friends, and loving family.
-Never stop learning - No matter your age, every day has something new to teach you. No matter how many years have passed, you can always learn something new. So, push yourself, learn and be amazed at how wonderful life is. There are a million perspectives and you are only seeing one. That is how your magic will awake.
