HOW MUCH DO YOU KNOW ABOUT YOUR SUBCONSCIOUS MIND?
I believe this isn’t the first time you’re coming across the word “subconscious mind”, or is it? If it is, then you probably would’ve heard it called something else other than the one aforementioned.
The subconscious mind is such a vast concept, you can’t really know all there is to know about it—but you can at least try, for learning is for life.
So many things happen in your subconscious mind, especially things that are beyond your control. Just see your subconscious mind as an auto-operating machine. This means it works on its own without necessarily needing any help in its operational functions.
There are so many things that go on in your subconscious mind that you’re completely clueless about. In it lies all the power of the universe. I always wonder how God created such a thing as the subconscious mind. How much do you really know about your subconscious mind?
I thought I knew about the subconscious until I read “The Power of Your Subconscious Mind” by Dr Joseph Murphy. Dr Joseph really did talk about every nook and cranny of the subconscious mind in his book, which taught me a great lesson about it.
JOSEPH MURPHY’S VIEW ON THE SUBCONSCIOUS MIND
Joseph Murphy said quite a lot about the power of your subconscious mind in his book. He said, “The subconscious mind is also known as the subjective mind, while the conscious mind is the objective mind because it deals with outward objects”. You know, whenever the subconscious mind is talked about, the conscious mind follows suit because every individual subconscious mind thought usually comes from the conscious mind.
Whatever we believe in with our own consciousness is always registered automatically in the subconscious. That is why you really have to be careful about your thoughts and beliefs because your subconscious mind takes it into itself without necessarily asking for permission.
According to Murphy, “your subconscious mind controls all the vital processes of your body and knows the answer to all problems. Prior to sleep, turn over a specific request to your subconscious mind and prove its miracle-working power to yourself”
It’s really true that your subconscious mind controls all involuntary vital processes of your body. All the inner workings of your organs, tissues and cells are actually the effort of your subconscious mind.
Sometimes I begin to wonder why we still live in so much chaos and miseries having that God has placed the most powerful entity in us all—The subconscious mind.
Murphy added, “The reason there is so much chaos and misery in the world is that people do not understand the interaction of their conscious and subconscious mind”.
Just imagine how much chaos we still have to go through all because of the ignorance we have about our subconscious mind. People can be completely clueless and sceptical when it comes to things that are beyond their conscious minds. I guess that’s why they don’t really believe that they can do so much more than they can ever imagine.
HARMONIZING YOUR CONSCIOUSNESS WITH YOUR SUBCONSCIOUSNESS
If there is a sub-conscious mind, then there really got to be a conscious mind, and that’s the one you can utterly control. Your thoughts, beliefs, values, likes, dislikes are all part of your consciousness because to a large extent you determine which one to go by.
However, you really have to know that your consciousness and sub-consciousness are not really independent from each other, though they may be quite distinct and having varied functions, they both really were meant to work together in harmony to produce a fulfilled living.
But what do we have today, constant warfare and disagreement between both entities because the Being involved refuse to harmonize them.
Whatever thought is accepted by your conscious mind is automatically taken by your subconscious mind. So in order to live a fulfilled life and harmonize both entities, you really have to be cautious of what you take in by your own consciousness.
Don’t say it wasn’t intentional because your subconscious mind doesn’t care about intentions or whatever is there. It just works with whatever it sees in your conscious mind—and that includes the bad, ugly and pathetic things.
“As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he…” says the Bible. Here, whatever thoughts you think is controlled by your conscious thinking. However, it’s your subconscious mind that makes that thinking “come alive”—more like making you be what you think.
So you really cannot afford to always take in garbage stuff into your mind because eventually it will form who you are, and I believe you don’t want to be a sack full of garbage. Of course, you don’t!
Harmonizing your conscious mind with your subconscious mind is really not so difficult you know, except you probably have a problem controlling your consciousness.
Just create a kind of an imaginary filter in your consciousness to always filter out that stuff you know you really don’t want in your mind and in your life. The work to be done is in your conscious mind.
Once you’ve done that, be rest assured that your subconscious mind will always take the good stuff you’ve deposited in your conscious mind by default. This creates harmony and makes possible the kind of life you really want to live.
So, if you want your life to be on a balanced scale, you’ve got to unionize your conscious with your subconscious mind. Magic cannot just happen in your life. You want something, then you need to accept it in your consciousness first, then your subconscious mind can take care of the rest from there.
You can never isolate your subconscious from your conscious mind. The earlier you realize this now, the better for you. Be utterly deliberate about your thinking! Don’t allow filthy things into your consciousness whether it was jokingly or not.
You’ve to know that your subconscious mind doesn’t do jokes or know jokes. It takes and works with whatever it sees in the conscious mind. So that’s why I said you should only allow those things you really want in your life. Because if you’re full of negative thoughts, your subconscious mind will make sure those negative thoughts are brought to reality.
However, if you’re the optimistic type of person, your subconscious still wouldn’t relent to bring those your positive thoughts to the light. So block off pessimism and cynicism from your life so that the beauty of life can flow through you because life’s truly beautiful if you want it to!
WHAT YOUR SUBCONSCIOUS MIND THINKS OF YOU
Your subconscious mind doesn’t think more of you than you think of yourself. In other words, it thinks of you what you sincerely think of yourself.
Because just like I earlier aforementioned, your subconscious mind works by and with your conscious mind. It doesn’t really form any external thoughts, rather, it gets its thoughts from your consciousness.
Now, if you think of yourself as unloved, a failure, and a worthless scum, then that’s exactly what your subconscious mind thinks too. Though it really wants to help you create a whole lot of beauty and fulfilment out of life, it cannot if you think contrary to what it wants for your life.
And as it is, your subconscious cannot and does not try to reason out what comes to it. It just makes it possible, be it logical or not. It does not really work with logic and reason.
Howbeit, if your think of yourself as loving, worthy of love, kind and compassionate, your subconscious will in multiple folds create those entities in you and you’ll begin to see results—a good one at that—in your life.
WHEN YOUR SUBCONSCIOUS MIND OPERATES
Now you may wanna ask, “well if I’m thinking all with my consciousness at all times, then when exactly does my subconscious mind does it work?”. This is quite an easy question to answer you know. Well, your subconscious mind takes in when your consciousness ceases.
And you pretty much know that you tend to be unconscious when you’re in deep sleep. So, your subconscious really kicks in when you’re sleeping.
This is why it’s utterly good when you free up your mind from all worries, grudges and the like and replace them with gratitude, appreciation and forgiveness so that when you’ve fallen asleep and your subconscious mind starts to work, it can work with those positive things and yield great positivity in your life.
Also, it is good to say a word of positive prayer and wish before you go off to bed. If you’ve got a project that is giving you a hard time, making you bellyaching because you really don’t know how to go about it. Just say a word out loud that you’ve gotten a solution and be positive about it.
Believe that it is done and then when your subconscious mind begins to work, it will then work with your positivity and optimism in bringing those wishes of yours to reality.
The world’s greatest scientists used this method to get answers from their subconscious. They believed in themselves and also what they can do. Not only scientists, but great and successful people of the world did too.
So learn to develop a positive mindset so that your subconscious mind can bring you a great fortune—it will!
