Neuroscience these days is doing wonderful work in research as they study the brain from all aspects. It is a subject that I share a strong interest in and find very fascinating. What happens in a subconscious mind is anything but boring to me.
We don't talk enough about the subconscious mind either. We go through our day with our busy moments and list of things to do, but we fail to see the impact of our subconscious mind upon every waking moment we live. It's there, whether you see it or not, feel it or not, or even want to acknowledge it.
Subconscious and Awareness...
The subconscious mind is one that stores data and input from many different experiences and moments of life. It is the part that automatically knows what to do given any situation that arises. It is the rapid response team. It is the way you respond to situations that match up to your conscious mind and awareness. It is responsible for the basic functions in life, including habits.
The subconscious mind controls or helps your reactions when it comes to emotions, feelings, actions, thoughts and words. It knows where you feel comfortable in your responses and works to keep all of that in line.
You can also think of this part of your mind as anything that is not in your conscious thought. Conscious thought may be a problem you are working on, while the concussions mind would be gathering data to help you solve that problem. The conscious mind would help you in dealing with a client while the unconscious mind would be pulling in many scenarios from your life where you did something similar while doing a compare and contrast to help you in dealing with that client.
Your conscious mind does not think of your body temperature every second, but your subconscious mind knows that it needs to maintain a balance and so will activate other body systems to make sure this happens. If you focus on your breathing, your conscious mind will know that it is breathing, but every minute of the day, your subconscious mind keeps your breathing operating at the rate which is needed to maintain life and functions.
Conscious and Unconscious Mind...
Our conscious mind and unconscious mind play critical roles in not only our survival but how we function each day. It is in understanding more about these parts that we can better live our life to the fullest. Failing to learn and comprehend more about our subconscious mind is only going to hold us back.
The more we can begin to understand all that is going on behind the scenes, gives us power to move through our days. The more we understand and expose what is hidden deep within, the more we will consciously become aware so as to make better choices in our life. Without knowing what is impacting us, it is like taking a shot in the dark. You may hit something, but it might not be what you want to hit.
Exposing the subconscious mind allows us to let go of the baggage we have carried from all the experiences of our life. We may not even be aware that we are carrying them, but they become like familiar weights we drag along each day. Only when we expose these things can we decide if they are still needed or we can choose to let them go.
It is all part of our path and journey in life where we learn more about who we are than we knew the day before. It is about getting to know our innermost thoughts, so that we become the empowered beings that we are meant to be. Exposing the subconscious is truly growth.
