Have you ever wondered how your brain works to make decisions and set a series of thoughts? How can you use your mind constructively to obtain the things that you want? Do you know how it is that your mind influences the events and circumstances that happen in your life? It’s all about the conscious and subconscious mind.

The first thing to understand is that there are two separate entities in your mind: the conscious and subconscious. For instance, if your mind is a computer, then the conscious mind is all the hardware. It’s the physical stuff that you can see such as the keyboard and the screen. Otherwise, the software represents the subconscious.

The human mind is composed of 2 parts

What is the conscious mind?

Basically, your conscious mind is your thinking mind. It’s where you are able to rationalize your thoughts, make decisions, have perceptions about the world, and also make judgments and assumptions. It represents your ability to hear, see, touch, taste, and smell.

The conscious mind is your tool for focused and effective mind development and if utilized properly and consciously can play a huge part in dramatically enhancing your life, far beyond what you may currently be aware of or believe to be possible.

Although the conscious brain is vital for our survival and well-being, it is only in charge of 5 % of what you do on a daily basis. The rest goes for the subconscious brain, and now it’s time for us to discover it.

What is the subconscious mind?

The subconscious mind operates completely differently than the conscious mind. It’s the program or code, taking the inputs, processing them, and dumping out an output. Unlike the conscious brain, the subconscious mind has no agenda. It doesn’t judge, it has no limits, and it must accept all the inputs we give as true, and process them, and produce an output based on the programming that’s in place. Additionally, the subconscious mind stores and filters everything we experience in life.

The subconscious mind directs 95% of your actions and reactions. The unconscious part is where all the magic happens, but we have no idea what’s going on in there. And this brings up a question ” What programs are we running?”. We are all programmed, no exceptions, from the moment we were born.

Until the age of 7, you can’t see a total development in the conscious brain. That means that your totally subjective subconscious is wide open to the things happening around you. As you get older and your conscious mind develops, you start to have the ability to choose between things. Before this age, you don’t have that ability. Everything that’s happening just goes right into your subconscious, and the internal programming starts to develop. This is why our childhood has such a profound impact on the person that we become. 

Our conscious brain is not fully developed until the age of 7

There are no constraints in the subconscious mind like its counterpart. It doesn’t know the difference between what we perceive to be real through our eyes and our senses, versus what we only see in our imagination. Therefore, once you make a decision about your outer world, and hold that idea consistently in your subconscious mind. Then, you start to feel like it’s real, and that’s how you know the message has reached the subconscious. That’s how you know the programming is starting to change, and you can see possibilities and opportunities you couldn’t before.
