The Subconscious Mind

Think Positive

Think of the subconscious mind as the storage room of everything that is currently not in your subconscious mind. The subconscious mind stores all of your previous life experiences;
  • Your beliefs
  • Your memories
  • Your skills, all situations you've been through and all images you've ever seen.
The best way to understand the subconscious mind is to look at the example of the person who wants to learn how to drive a car. At the beginning he wouldn't be able to hold a conversation with anyone while driving as he would be focusing on the different moves involved. That's because he's still using his conscious mind to drive.
The subconscious mind; your Autopilot!
Few weeks later driving becomes a natural habit that happens automatically without needing to think about it. That person could even start using his cell phone or talking to his friends while driving (not advisable). This happened because the driving habit has been transferred to his subconscious mind and so the conscious mind becomes free. This allowed him to use it to multi-task.
The subconscious mind is responsible for the automatically triggered feelings and emotions that you suddenly experience upon facing a new situation. If you were about to give a presentation then all the fear and anxiety feelings you might experience are in fact launched and controlled by your subconscious mind. By M.Farouk Radwan, MSc.
Since a very early age I had my suspicions that there was more going on with my brain than the things I was controlling (see Post: Quantum Jumping 5/15/13). However, Quantum Jumping leaves more questions than answers. In the last two years I've had two events that convince me that understanding and affecting the subconscious is something we should strive to understand more about. I personally am impressed by it and plan to continue learning about my own subconscious.
The first event:  Some 40 years ago I was award a certificate of achievement that was so important that it had survived the test of time, and one even more incredible test, that of surviving a divorce and division of property. The point being that family photos that were extremely important were lost in the process but this certificate survived. Two years ago the certificate became very crucial in a process, and the reason for its preservation. I had not actually looked at the certificate in over 10 years but I was confident that I knew where it was. Two years prior to needing the certificate I started searching for it to no avail. As the time approached I became so desperate that one night before going to bed I said a prayer, that I be able to locate this very important document. After the prayer and before falling asleep (for about 30 minutes) I concentrated on how important the document was, and how I hoped that during my sleep I would be enlightened as to its whereabouts.
The following morning I woke up refreshed and relaxed, more so than usual. My typical routine was to go straight to the shower, and begin getting ready to face my day. This day, however, I walked out of the master bedroom, past the laundry room and into the garage. I stood at the doorway for about a couple of minutes, and then I focused on a 4-drawer file cabinet, that I had previously searched multiple times.  Without plan or effort I opened the bottom drawer, and went to a file that didn't seem familiar and there it was.
The Second Event:  I've had a wonderful business relationship with a local retail store for over 20 years. One of the main reasons for the quality relationship besides the owner has been a young man that was directly responsible for the quality service I received over the last 15 years. He always took the time to address my needs, and would go out of his way to research answers to my questions. He appeared healthy and robust even. A Monday last summer I received a call from the store owner. He said I know how closely you worked with (name withheld), and I regret to inform you that he passed away last Saturday at his home. My friend was only 42 years old, divorced, and left behind two children that he had custody of. After talking to his coworkers I found out that the Wednesday previous to his death, he had said the following to a small gathering during break. He was looking forward to the weekend, and happened to mention how comfortable his porch at home was; he said that, that was where he wanted to die sitting on a comfortable recliner on his porch with a glass of whiskey on one hand and a cigar on the other. That Saturday after work, that is exactly how he was found. He died of normal causes.  Be very careful what you say to your subconscious because it can and will make it happen.
Take this information and make something positive of it. Tell your subconscious some reaffirming positive things that you want to make happen, and watch the results. Instead of saying or thinking; “life is too hard and I can’t handle the task,” say or think “life is difficult but I am capable to gather the necessary resources to get it done!”  Your subconscious will find the resources that already stored within or find new ones.  I still miss my friend! The best is yet to come….
