Our subconscious mind largely determines our success & happiness in life. "Whatever we plant in our subconscious mind and nourish with repetition & emotion will one day become a reality." - Earl Nightingale
Our brain is divided into three parts as can be vividly seen in the diagram below:
Our conscious mind comprises of the neocortex part of the brain whereas the limbic & reptilian brain form our subconscious mind. The conscious mind controls our brain only 5% of the day, whereas the subconscious mind has a hold of our thoughts 95% of the time. And you have 70,000 thoughts approximately per day. So, who holds the maximum power to control your thoughts?! Obviously the subconscious mind. Here's a diagram that shows the functions of both the conscious & subconscious mind:
Have you wondered why whatever you fear, think of the most negatively & feel the most becomes the reality? On the other hand, if you have dreamt well, believed in your dream, embraced it to the core, visualized it & felt it with great passion & trust, effortlessly embraced it without attachment, your subconscious mind paves the way for making it a reality. Yes, your subconscious mind is your hidden friend. Tapping its power can bring about massive changes in your life.
When we dream or want to achieve a goal, this positive thought/desire first encounters the conscious mind which thinks rationally and tries to gather facts, patterns, behaviors generated in the past & accordingly makes an analysis of whether it would be good to go or to give up. Many a times, our conscious mind reminds us of our past failures, limiting patterns & other limitations which leads us to a logical reasoning of not pursuing something that we aren't sure or certain of. However, if we can consciously surpass the conscious mind & get access to the subconscious mind by planting conscious positive thought to it, the subconscious mind accepts it as a reality & opens up the doors to limitless possibilities of our growth & development. Many breakthroughs were attained by using the power of the subconscious mind.
How do you tap the subconscious mind? Follow the following tips:
Tip #1: Create the thought that you want the subconscious mind to manifest.
Tip #2: Get your thoughts over to your subconscious mind. Repetition of desires positively also known as conscious feeding of positive thoughts. This needs to be done everyday when you wake up & before you go to bed.
Tip #3: Getting output or feedback from the subconscious mind. Allowing creativity to manifest, being in touch with insights from your mind & taking creative actions accordingly.
This is an ongoing process. One has to have faith, trust and be willing to embrace the process & not give up for it to bear result. "Happiness, success, excellence: They are not something you get for knowing the path, they are something you experience by walking it."- Dr. Steve Maraboli.
Those who don't believe in magic will never find it. Befriend your subconscious mind to create magic in your life.
