Your mind can be compared to a floating iceberg. The part of the iceberg that you see above the surface reflects your concious mind. And the larger part of the iceberg (subconscious mind) is beneath the surface of the water.
Your subconscious mind never sleeps. It never goes on holiday. It functions like a recorder. It knows and records everything about you; your preferences, your fears and past traumas. Even things that you cannot recall, or you believe to be forgotten, remain in your subconscious mind. Your subconscious mind is filled with all sorts of reference material about your likes and dislikes. It is filed with information about your prefernces and about things that frighten you etc. and it is your subconscious mind that dictates, with regard to your life experiences and your unique life history, how you think, how you percieve things and how you act when you are confronted by various situations and challenges.
Most people believe that they constantly make concious decisions. They believe that they are always fully aware of the choices that they make and of how they react in every situation… but that is not the case…
That’s pretty important stuff. Is it possible your conscious mind has been teaching your subconscious mind to fail? I’d bet on it. How often do you engage in negative self-talk? Stuff like “you dummy, you can’t do that”, “what a jerk you are”, and “what makes you think you will ever amount to anything?” Does any of that sound familiar? Let us help you, and release the Power of Your Subconscious Mind! Or read more here, The power of your subconscious mind.
When you are driving you are probably thinking about many things. Everybody does. If you are driving and thinking about work or your weekend plans then what part of you is paying attention to driving? The answer is your subconscious mind. If there is an obstacle your subconscious mind will make you step on the brake before you can make any conscious decision. Everyone has experienced being so deep in thought that they don’t remember the turns they took to get to their destination. You drove the entire distance guided by your subconscious mind.
Your subconscious mind doesn’t think. That is a function of your conscious mind. Your subconscious mind just reacts based on the information stored in it. If you are feeling cold while sleeping or need to go to the bathroom then your subconscious mind will wake you up.
