The subconscious is a scarey thing to comtemplate for some people.
We have been taught that it is a dark place that keeps deep dark
secrets about ourselves that could destroy our peace of mind at the
very least, and our lives at the very worst. And quite possibly it does.
But, that is not its only function.
I think of it as a vast library full of books that has all my memories in it. It is not a dark place at all. There are bright pleasant lights, beautiful carpets and comfortable armchairs
there. I enjoy to my visits! Yes, I know there are some books that have
unpleasant memories and maybe some that have dark secrets, but I
know that when I visit there I am in control of what books are opened
and read. I know it is my choice and so my visits are comfortable and
relaxed. Sometimes when I go there I ask for specific memories. A
couple months ago I was trying to recall the name of a town. I had been
there are several occasions and I had sent mail to a relative that
lived there. But I just couldn't recall the name of that town! The only
thing that came to mind was the word wood and I knew there was more
to it than that. So, I went into my library(the subconscious) and talked
to the librarian there. I calmed my breatheing, stilled my mind and
relaxed my body. Then I told her that the name of that town was stored
there and I reminded her that I had been there and seen the name and
I had written the name myself. I pictured the town in my mind and then
I asked that it be given to my conscious mind. A few minutes later I
found myself thinking of trees and so I thought maybe that was a clue.
So, I started thinking about different kinds of trees and a second later
the name of that town popped into my head; Birchwood.
The subconscious does intrude itself on our conscious lives and it takes
control to make it behave the way we wish it to. If we allow it to run
rampant it does have the ability to hurt us. But, we need the sub-
conscious to remain healthy in our body, mind and soul. The thing to do
is to train the subconscious. Train it to work with us and not against
us. The reason it works against us is because of the things it has
already been told. For those of us with low self esteem, the sub-
conscious tells us the things we have always thought about ourselves.
When we go there and tell the subconscious the truth about ourselves
it will reprogram itself to believe the new things we are saying and will
tell us those things which in turn will build self esteem.
Set apart some of each day to spend with your subconscious mind.
First thing in the morning is a good time. Tell it what you want to hear
from it throughout the day and gradually you will replace the bad
messages with good ones. As you develope this healthy approach, I
believe that even the deep dark bad secrets it keeps won't have the
effect on you that they have in the past. It is all a matter of
perspective after all!
I am a health conscious individual that spends a lot of time researching
different ways of thinking. It is important to me to think outside the
box or the matrix if you will! I do not believe and accept everything I
see, read, or hear. Some things I have found to be truths for my own
life and those things I pass on to you. My maxims are "think for
yourself" and "listen to your whole self, body, mind and soul!" I have
found that if I do those two things I am always happy! The goal of my
