Last week we talked about the power of your conscious mind and how you can alter it just by making your mind up. Today I want to talk about the power of your subconscious.
Dividing the mind into conscious and subconscious is a fairly recent technique. The term “subconscious” was coined by Sigmund Freud in 1893, and countless philosophers, psychiatrists and psychoanalysts have spent many years trying to figure out exactly what your subconscious is and what it does. For example, Carl Jung said that since as there was a limit to what can be held in conscious focal awareness, an alternative storehouse of one's knowledge and prior experience was needed.
One reason the workings of the subconscious mind can be hard to fathom is because you cannot access it directly. You can, however, use your conscious mind to influence and “reprogram” it. Likewise, your subconscious can have a big influence on your conscious mind. For example, fears and phobias originate in your subconscious mind but influence the decisions you make using your conscious mind.
Your subconscious is generally regarded as being more powerful than your conscious mind because it can handle more data.
Think of it like this…
Your conscious mind is a bit like a pocket calculator. It can handle calculations and perform one or two functions at a time.
Your subconscious mind, on the other hand, is like a powerful computer with the fastest processor running a TON of apps in the background.
Your subconscious mind is always working 24/7. It's responsible for memories and dreams, so it's still plugging away even when you're asleep.
Even though you cannot access your subconscious mind directly, you can access it indirectly via your conscious mind, and you can “reprogram” it to master its immense power. More later.
