Your subconscious mind holds the key to your unique life story. It’s a magic place where miracles can happen.
All manifestations of events and circumstances are first imprinted upon the subconscious mind.
They start as thoughts, beliefs, and theories which are born in the conscious mind and passed back to the “crew of the ship”.
Understanding how the subconscious mind works
The ship is basically you as a whole person, the captain is the conscious mind, which is the thinking and reasoning center, and the crew is the collective subconscious, which uses emotions as its major source of information.
Your emotions, the source of your subconscious mind, sometimes serve as an internal alarm system.
For instance, if you’ve ever felt like someone was watching you, you turned and saw that you were right, this is the subconscious using its alerts to let you understand your surroundings.
You are registering the presence of an individual who may or may not interact with you.
Thοse things you “register” internally, you will experience them externally. Hence, you may react to this situation by greeting the person who was looking at you. This is a simple example, but the subconscious mind can also alert you to danger as well.
While your conscious mind is busy reasoning, your subconscious mind is using intuition to do other things. Your life has two sides, objective and subjective, visible and invisible, thought and its expression.
The basic role of the conscious mind
The thought is processed by the brain, the organ of the conscious, logical mind. When the conscious mind (or objective mind) accepts the thought completely, then it is sent to the solar plexus, called the “brain of the mind”. There it takes “flesh and bones”, so then it can manifest into your reality what you are thinking.
How the conscious and the subconscious work together
As noted above, your subconscious has no objections. It just acts according to what is entered into it. It accepts your verdict or the conclusions of your consciousness as accomplished facts.
But…as a plethora of information passes through the subconscious, it starts to act as a filter. The subconscious mind then uses emotions, past experiences, and morals, which are not governed completely by what we think, and makes a call to action based on factors in these senses.
Other extraordinary roles of the subconscious mind
The subconscious mind is able to do many things behind the scenes. In fact, those moments when you barely remember driving to work or moving throughout your day while deep in thought, yes, those miracles are possible with the help of the subconscious mind.
This part of your mind, which sometimes enables you to function on automatic, is responsible for keeping you alive when otherwise you would be injured due to paying little attention to your circumstances or surroundings.
It is estimated that 75% of your daily routine is accomplished by the subconscious mind while you mull over the past or something of that nature. In effect, this area of the mind is also your autopilot when the pilot is busy not doing the present job.
The subconscious is also capable of extrasensory perception as well, including clairvoyance and claircognizance, which can then govern the decisions that we make based on the intuition. After all, your individual story is not only based on logical concrete thinking, otherwise, there would be no creativity.
Putting thoughts and emotions into action
So, we could say that you continuously write the book of your life, since your thoughts are transformed into experiences. The subconscious mind, although not capable of reasoning or handing out duties, is quite capable of taking over when necessary, and definitely able to record a story worth reading.
After all, it’s not only the actions and words that our conscious must pay attention to but also the motives behind the words, absorbed and understood by the subconscious mind.
Why not use your subconscious to do all sorts of amazing feats, like manifest what you believe and wish for. Let your subconscious become your story!
The American essayist Ralph Waldo Emerson said: “Man is what he thinks all day”.
