The subconscious mind has a loud voice that is often left on silent. While it dwells beneath the surface of our conscious awareness, it holds immense power when dictating our reality. By knowing parts of our mind better, we position ourselves at a level where we can live from our highest good.
It has a record of everything.
Take a good look at the information you take in. What does your inventory hold? The subconscious mind has a record of everything and stores it away. This means if you are indulging in mindless scrolling, the subconscious mind has an account of it. It is important we build our mindfulness techniques if we want to program our subconscious minds to our highest good.
It runs on habit.
Since our subconscious mind runs on habits there are options to break and rewire the ones that are no longer serving us. An example might be a shift from waking up five minutes before it is time to leave the house to a slower morning giving yourself 20 minutes to journal or meditate. This is just one habit that can have an impact on habits that dictate your day. The more we build upon fruitful habits, the better we can rely on our subconscious mind to serve our highest awareness.
It never sleeps.
That’s right. The subconscious mind is always awake and always listening. It takes in the billboard signs when you are driving and even the people you cross on your walk. Whether you are aware of this or not, the subconscious mind is taking in the world as an open sponge. This is why it is important to treat it with care.
PRO TIP: Since the subconscious mind is always awake, it is beneficial to take advantage of sound healing and subconscious techniques before going to bed. Listen to this as you fall asleep. Your mind will still be listening, recording, and rewiring!
It knows no logic.
None. Not one bit. Think about that dream you have. The subconscious mind is there to either help build it or destroy it. It doesn’t know logic or the limits of time. Set your goals and envision the feeling with clarity and detail. The subconscious only knows how to feel. What you feel in the subconscious becomes real.
It believes everything you say…
Even when you think it isn’t listening… Even when you’re just joking. The thoughts we think are often reflected in the words we speak. If you’re thinking high vibrational thoughts, your words will be just as freeing. On the contrary, if you are telling yourself you can’t do something or aren’t enough, your words will show this and your subconscious mind will believe it. Language is a powerful tool and for good reason.
It communicates to you in dreams.
Whether you remember them or not, we dream every single night. In fact, we often have multiple dreams that speak to us through symbols and patterns. Pay attention to the messages that come up in the dream realm as they hold powerful clues to tapping into the subconscious mind.
It can’t take a joke.
This goes back to the fact that your subconscious mind believes everything you say. Any joke that goes against your greatest good is taken as fact, as truth. Use your words wisely and with proper intent.
It governs our reality.
The subconscious mind takes in every piece of information and it stores it. For the most part, our subconscious mind rules 95% of our reality. The term “running on autopilot” carries true weight here. Bring this back to the habits you instill and you are sure to cruise in the ways you have always known you deserved. You do deserve it.
It can do multiple things at once.
While the conscious mind cannot multitask, the subconscious mind can. This is because it is taking everything in through the senses, symbolism, sounds, etc… From one perspective, this means the subconscious mind can take in all sorts of junk and limiting information whether it be music, images, food, or even people. On the other hand, it can take in positive affirmations and construct new pathways for the conscious mind to grow and expand. In short, the environments we surround ourselves plays a major role in our perspectives—whether we’re fully aware or not. Shape it to your advantage.
It is infinitely more powerful than your conscious mind.
The conscious mind is just the tip of the iceberg. It serves as our primary observant while holding so much more beneath the surface. If that’s the case, we can tap into the subconscious reservoir of endless information, insights, and messages.
