Surely, you hear a lot about the subconscious. It is probably one of the most discussed topics in psychology, as well as fascinating practically all of humanity. Our brain has two major intelligences – the conscious and subconscious mind. First, the mind is not something physical. Therefore, there is no way to measure its size. Consciousness is the rational mind. She has the ability to think, define what is right or wrong, have a sense of time and space, etc. The subconscious is not rational.
Influence of the subconscious
Until the age of six, the human being does not know the difference between right and wrong. An example is that at this age we believe in Santa Claus, Easter Bunny, etc. It is because until that age we still have not developed our conscious mind, acting only with emotion. Consequently, at this age we develop many negative ideas in our subconscious. We end up creating beliefs that we will carry with us for the rest of our lives. In other words, if we are taught that violence is the only way, that ghosts exist or even that money is the best thing in the world, this will probably be ingrained in our unconscious until the end of time.
The subconscious is responsible for most of the decisions we make on a daily basis. Even decisions that you believe you made consciously may have been made subconsciously, and all that time of rationalization only serves to find justification. Our mind has to make many decisions all the time: blinking, talking, walking, changing gears, studying, working, sleeping, chewing, listening, etc. To be able to make so many decisions without having to rationalize them all, our subconscious creates patterns of behavior. He first makes a decision and then rationalizes.
Subconscious is always true
We can consciously lie or withhold information, but the subconscious never lies. The subconscious always shows the truth. Knowing how it works, you can identify lies in anyone. An example is our gaze. Whenever we are looking for information in the subconscious, our eyes move to the left side. When we are searching for something in the imagination, our eyes move to the right side. It indicates that we are lying, fantasizing, etc. The subconscious mind is like a hard drive in a computer. It contains memories, habits, beliefs, and self-image and controls the body’s autonomic functions. It is both the repository of information and the performers of tasks. It also contains “preset instructions” that we do not have to think about, such as keeping our heart beating, our breathing, our digestion, etc.
Why reprogram the mind?
There are currently several techniques to reprogram the mind. Some are well known, such as meditation, yoga, NLP and other holistic therapies. First, you need to understand that your subconscious mind has immense power in controlling all your decisions. The subconscious mind controls the food you choose to eat, the things you choose to say, how you behave in stressful situations or even the addictions you acquire throughout your life. The good news is that you can reprogram your mind and change everything you want.
Subconscious X Unconscious
The subconscious is more easily accessed if we need it consciously. Think of phone numbers, license plates, street names and people. You may forget the information shortly, but if you think hard, you can retrieve the message. With subconscious reprogramming, one can easily enhance the hidden power of our mind. The main difference between the subconscious and the unconscious is that the latter acts as a protective mechanism over the mind. The unconscious stores everything that is harmful to our mental health and archives it in a place that is difficult to access.
