Do you remember the days you were trying hard on your bicycle? It took countless number of attempts to master the skill. Usually, learning something new that involves a set of complex actions are always tough and time-taking. But once you master the skill and bring things into flow, you tend to become less conscious. All these unconscious actions are directed by some powerful inner force that drives the subconscious mind.
So, what does subconscious mind actually mean?
Before we directly delve into the subconscious mind, let us first understand what is conscious mind. To put it simply, conscious mind is the programmer of our brain. It is the intellectual mind that is able to think pretty creatively. But, this conscious mind is affected by certain filters that are generated by our predominant thoughts, and are stored in the subconscious mind. On the other hand, the subconscious mind is just like a computer. It is nonjudgmental and does not distinguish between what can and what cannot be obtained or achieved. In short, our conscious mind instructs, and subconscious mind obeys.
My grandmother always says: “It’s all in the mind!” I feel amazed at how she wakes up every single morning at exactly 4:30am, without even setting an alarm clock. It’s actually her subconscious mind that automatically wakes her up!
Almost every one of us is aware of the presence of a “subconscious” mind—but we don’t know exactly what it is, what it does or how we can get the best control over it. The truth is, a subconscious mind is a powerful tool that can change the way you think, feel, and live your life. It is a storeroom for all the things that are currently not in your conscious mind. It stores all your past life experiences, beliefs, memories, skills, and all the situations that you have experienced. It’s the best tool to turn your negative thoughts into positive. It is an amazing power if you master your control over it, but if not, it can drive the direction of your life in an undesirable way.
Our conscious mind is not responsible to find out how a particular thing should be done; instead, it is only responsible to make a choice regarding what must be done. But our subconscious mind is well capable of discovering the shortest way to achieve what our conscious mind has selected for us. Hence, it is rightly said that the conscious mind is the ‘goal setter’ and the subconscious mind is the ‘goal getter’.
Rules that subconscious mind follows—
Do you know our subconscious mind is 30,000 times more powerful than our conscious mind? If we master the power of subconscious mind, it’s quite likely to unleash all the hidden potential within us. Tony Robbins, a noteworthy American author, has rightly said that all personal changes should be achieved at the subconscious level. To have everlasting changes in our lives, we must change the thinking of our subconscious mind.
You don’t have to use any special method to trigger your subconscious mind’s power. You just need to a set goal, and a strong desire to accomplish the same. The more deeply you connect yourself to your goal, the more perfectly the idea is going get buried deep inside your subconscious mind.
Suppose, any of your loved ones is admitted in hospital and the doctor demands a huge amount which you need to pay within 48 hours. Will you still think twice? The truth is, you will not! You will automatically unleash the hidden power of your subconscious mind and come out with ways to find the money.
How to tap into your subconscious mind?
This is how you can do it…
Step 1: Every night when you go to sleep, just close your eyes and peep inside yourself. Imagine a group of people around you. You can just imagine anyone—any friend, relative, famous celebrities or politicians, and even a dead person.
Step 2: Now, there must be a purpose why you have indulged yourself in the process. And, you’re certainly aware of it, right?? For instance, the purpose can be rebuilding your own character so that it would represent the best composite of the characters you have started imagining about. Shortly, the motive can be anything— something you want to change about yourself or your life.
Step 3: Now, ask these personalities to share the knowledge they wish to contribute. The idea here is to begin a discussion with these people on any topic of your choice. Imagine you are talking to these people, and they are giving you meaningful advices. After a while, each of the characters you imagined will actually take on a life of their own. Soon you will get a piece of advice and information that you could have never known by yourself.
Now, you might think, how is this possible? Because all this was your imagination only!! Before you jump to any conclusions, consider this…
Some of the world’s most influential and successful personalities have stated a similar experience of inexplicable flashes of motivation. Walt Disney also had his own unusual way of bringing up powerful ideas. The moment he would come across an idea he would run it through a similar three-step process, in order to make sure his idea always turns out unique, influential, and feasible. He would simply close his eyes and dream about the idea.
Edison had truly said, “Ideas come from space. It’s hard to believe but it’s true. Ideas come from out of space.”
All these highly successful personalities have one thing in common—they knew how to tap into a force beyond the boundaries of their minds and draw infinite amount of knowledge in the manner.
