Subconscious or Conscious – Where Do You Live

Conscious/Subconscious

Ah such wonderment exist within the conscious mind vs the subconscious mind.  Many different opinions on both.  I intend to give you my impression of the correlation between them.  Most of the impression or information will be coming from my interpretations and what I’ve read in a book called “the Seat of the Soul” by Gary Zukav.

The conscious mind is directly connected to our personality, while the subconscious mind is basically hidden beneath our normal conscious mind.  The subconscious mind is responsible for all our unconscious things to keep us alive.  For example, the beating of our hearts, breathing, blood circulation, visual recognition from the things we see and so many other mindless wonders.

The conscious mind is more responsible for things involving our brains and day to day activities.  Such is the case when we are learning how to do something, or when multiplying things like 10 X 10, or even more difficult ciphers.  It’s also responsible for conscious thoughts.  These thoughts create emotional responses such as fear, anger, jealously and many other negative emotions from our everyday lives.

For example, let’s say in your present job your offered or given the opportunity for a promotion.  Once the data is received into your data banks of your brain, the conscious mind takes over and begins to analyze the data it was just given.  Even though the data was not complete it doesn’t matter because the unique thing about our conscious mind is through a life of practice it assumes things, it creates things true or false doesn’t matter.  What does matter is the issues of how the conscious mind correlates the partial data it’s received.

We as human beings throughout the centuries tend to look more at the negative side of the decision process or most data we receive.  We begin the process with asking ourselves questions, which can be and is a good thing.  However, because we don’t necessarily like change and a promotion is definitely change thoughts of our abilities comes into question within our minds.

Questions like…

Can I really be able to do this, will I screw it up, am I good enough, why did they offer me this, are they trying to trick me, is this their way of getting me out of here, what will my office friends think of me, and so on and on and on these and so many more questions of doubt pop into our minds, or the minds of most.

Our conscious mind doubts you’re good enough to be successful in this new position, as you wonder what if I fail.  The other down side is the stress this places upon us.  Our blood pressure goes up, pulse rate increases and other emotions show up in our lives.

Anger, lack of self-confidence, and we walk around on pin and needles.  Many of our love ones who would naturally benefit from the promotion suffer similar negative emotions, and the truly sad part is they have no idea why, but they’ve picked up on your emotions and reflecting back to you what your reality is displaying.

We can always measure the things we will lose, but how ironic is it we never see or believe the good things we will gain.

So stay tuned as the next post will delve into the subconscious mind and how it can do so many good things for us.

Stop Using Your Head

It’s really incredible how many people have the answers to questions they asked right inside of them but for whatever reason they need to validate them with someone who knows nothing about the question they are asking…sounds like a vicious never ending circle.  So many times I have people ask me a question when I know they have the answer, and sometimes, when I’m really lucky I get to watch as they answer their own questions…it’s so cool to see it when it happens.

We have be given the ability to discover the answer to any question that arises when the question is about us…you want to know the height of Mt Everest…well that is more a question for google.  If you happen to know someone you knows the answer to that question I would suggest you get on “Who wants to be a millionaire” and make sure they are one of your life lines…lol.

I’m referring to other questions…questions about who you are and what you’re here to do and so many more…but it not something that comes from your brain…these answers come from somewhere a bit further South…No not that far South…men tend to think from there way too much and look at the troubles you get into when you listen to your second head.  I’m talking about your heart…or this may freak some of you out but from your soul.

You see your soul connects with the universe, God, Supreme Being or whatever name you want to use, but trust me it does connect and I’ll prove it.  How many times have you been searching for the answer to a question and it just comes to you…or you run into someone you may or may not know but out of the blue without knowing they are doing it they give you that answer…that happens to us so much more than we realize…maybe it will help to think about this in a totally different way…I’ve used this in the past to explain it and I figure to give you at least two examples your better to grab onto one of them…cool

The other thing or unique way to look at this is to think about a decision or something in the past you were having issues with.  Then out of the blue you get this idea in your head but the minute you begin to have this idea something happens…remember how you would get the really strange…but good feeling in your gut.  Like your stomach would feel kind of weird but not in a bad way in a good way as your thought about this idea you just received…are you ready for it because here it comes.  How many times have you had this crazy feeling about an idea and you just weren’t sure about it, but for whatever reason you decided to go with the idea and the idea turned out to be amazing and it worked out better than you even imagine it would.  I know you’ve heard people say go with your gut…well that feeling is coming from your heart because all emotions come from your heart not your brain…you can think about love or something you really like maybe food, but when your heart adds an emotion to it you feel amazing.  It’s because your subconscious is where the idea was created and it passed it down to your heart where an emotion is attached to your idea…hence the weird feeling in your gut.  Take a moment and think about it…really think about it and see if I’m not right.

What is truly amazing is how this all comes together…you see your heart/soul makes the connection and is bringing you’re your answer and it sends signals to your brain to guide you to the answer you’ve been searching for…this does work and has worked over and over again for millions of people…you just have to follow a few steps…

Stay tune and I will be bringing you the individual steps in much more details about how all of this works and if you just give me the benefit of the doubt on this I’m pretty sure I can blow your mind and you will become a believer of what I’m saying or at a minimum you see the possibilities to it and give it a try.  As I said that will be for a later time, but as I said these step are a bit involved and it may take a bit of time to wrap your head around them or maybe I should say your mind around this concept.  I figure the best way to do that is to just visit them one at a time and then at the very end give you a summary…so check back and read those as they are somewhat lengthy and I want to spread them over a few post…don’t really want to give you a book on this…just the highlights…

Thanks…for being you…and much love.

Seeing with your mind

I’m going tSubconscious-vs-consciouso start my very first post with an old Indian story that growing up as a boy scout I’ve heard around the campfires and this would be a perfect place to have it to start off this blog…

From what I have found the story came from the Nanticoke Indian Tribe and I have no idea if that is where it actually originated but it’s where I found it and if your interested in the website click here

To set up the story I will tell it to you as I heard it as a boy sitting around a campfire.  Boy scouts seem to do things revolving around different Indian traditions.  So here we are like 25 boys about 12 -13 and we grew up in the city so out in the woods is not a familiar place…so you can imagine how tense we were.  As you sat there pretty much the front of your body was warm while the other side of your body was cold…it was weird and not over comfortable…but bearable.  There were only like two Adults there the scout master and one of the kid’s dad…and he looked Indian to us but back then who really knew…surely not us.

The Indian man started…”It all began in woods similar to these over 100 years ago as a young brave sat at the fire with his grandfather…the young brave was complaining about the cold how he, was like you boys are, cold on that back side and hot on the front side.  Grandfather looked over at the young brave as a smirk came to his face and he said “you remind me of the story my grandfather told me about the spirit’s of two wolves.”  The young braves eyes lit up as he looked up at his grandfather and said… “Really grandfather…what two wolves…what story…what spirits…will you tell me the story…what’s it about”

“Calm down my son” the old Indian said as he continued.  “A long time ago it was explained to me by my grandfather the two wolves represented the spirits within us always battling between themselves…and it must be true because I see it still happening today among our people.  It’s a very hard battle and it’s always going on within us all the time.

Neither one is bad they are just opposing sides for one is filled with anger, envy, jealousy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ultimately ego.  The other wolf is filled with   goodness, joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion, gratefulness, belief and faith.  The two spirits dwell among each and every one of us battling to win out” and the grandfather bowed his head and sat there in silence…

The young brave sat that watching his grandfather until it was just two much for him and he said to his grandfather… “Which spirit wins grandfather…tell me which wolf wins out.”  The grandfather raised his head smiling at the boy said well it depends…”  “depends on what grandfather…depends on what”, the young brave anxious asked.  His grandfather stood up and turn away from the boy for it had been a long night and it was time for him to get some rest…as he walked away the boy just hung is head in thought.

Finally, the old Indian grandfather turned back to the boy and said…the one you feed most is the one that wins…

So which are you feeding…and maybe it time we take a good look into what is inside each and everyone of us…
