The subconscious mind is a hot topic and with good reason. In psychology, it is defined as the part of one’s mind not currently in one’s awareness.
The subconscious mind is where you do store and also retrieve data, allowing you to respond according to a pre-existing script or a master-program. Virtually, it ensured that what you do or say aligns with an existing pattern you have about your life.
It is this script or master-program that makes the subconscious so powerful. You might, in your conscious mind, want to do something, but ultimately, it is your subconscious mind that determines if you will or won’t.
Take the example of diets. You’re aware that the second slice of chocolate pound cake with a glaze is not a good idea, but you’ll eat it anyway.
With that in mind, it makes all the more sense that the subconscious mind takes 95 percent of your brainpower. It also handles everything your body needs to function at optimum, including ensuring that your biological processes are in order.
One thing people get wrong when they try to control the subconscious mind is that they try to use both their conscious decisions and willpower to control the subconscious mind. If you want to quit taking several slices of cake in one sitting, then you’ll have to learn to understand the subconscious mind and how to communicate with it as well.
