As we know, the mind triangle is divided into three parts: subconscious, conscious and unconscious mind. However, I will focus on distinguishing between the subconscious mind and the conscious mind in this article.
Definition: subconscious mind and conscious mind
The conscious mind
It defines all thoughts and actions within our awareness. For example, you can realize the beauty and smell of a red rose. Consciousness exists in our minds since we are born. But, it truly develops in a 6 year-old-child. Before that, the children always acted based on their instinct so that it was difficult to control consciousness. For example, they are very fond of a toy and will cry when their parents don’t buy it.
Actually, the conscious mind only determines 5-10% of human thoughts and actions. The rest belongs to the subconscious. Well! Consciousness helps us to distinguish between right and wrong, bad and good, left and right, etc. So, we can decide which information should be put into the brain.
The conscious has a highly logical function, but the subconscious does not. Furthermore, consciousness only contains information for a short time since we decide to absorb it.
The subconscious mind
It defines all reactions and automatic actions we can become aware of if we think about them. In general, the subconscious mind stores all information, experiences and memories since birth. For example, our ability to drive a car: once we get skilled we stop thinking about which gears to use, which pedals to press, or which mirror to look at, but we can always become aware of what was done once we think about it.
The subconscious accounts for about 90% of our actions and thoughts. Besides, it has the ability to operate the whole body 24/24 per day even while sleeping. The subconscious mind holds long-term information enough to form a memory stream. Especially, the subconscious can hold special memories for a lifetime. Yet it can not help you distinguish between right and wrong, right and left, bad and good, etc. It just creates a habit for you by repeating input information. The subconscious is so difficult to control, especially emotion. We usually easily get angry and depressed, even hurt others if we don’t learn to control our subconscious mind.
In conclusion, the answer to the question that I posed at the beginning of this article is: Brushing your teeth is a (subconscious) daily habit created from repetition. And the awareness of the importance of brushing your teeth (conscious) is the inception.
The connection between the subconscious and conscious
I will talk about the connection between the conscious mind and the subconscious mind, and its significance in our daily lives.
Human is programmed to think and behave in a certain way right from childhood. So, that restricts us from experiencing life as we want because the subconscious mind controls almost the time (95%) of our life.
We use our conscious mind only 5% of the time, and our conscious mind is where our desires and aspirations reside. Consciousness allows your brain to access and absorb information, then handle and put it into the subconscious part. The information is repeated many times so as to form a habit of subconsciousness. If it is useless, it will become a memory but remains in the subconscious part.
So, conscious mind is like a green house in the whole subconscious system.
Let’s understand more about how the conscious and the subconscious run our daily lives by using the app “REPROGRAM SUBCONSCIOUS MIND”. I installed it and started putting useful knowledge recordings I love into this app, then turned it on before I went to bed and listened while I slept. In fact, about 15 minutes before I fell into a deep sleep, I listened and actually remembered all of the useful knowledge until the next morning.
