What is Subconscious Mind
The psychologist divides mind into two broad categories.
1. The Conscious Mind
The present known mind is known as conscious mind. It is objective and rational.
2. The Subconscious Mind
The mind beyond the conscious mind is sub-conscious mind.
The mind is like a floating iceberg in water. Only 10% of iceberg floats above the water, that is the conscious mind. The rest 90% iceberg remains immersed in water, that is the sub-conscious mind.
There is no water tight compartment in mind as described. The subconscious mind can be conscious by effort and present conscious mind will be part of tomorrow’s subconscious mind.
The conscious mind makes all decisions. The subconscious mind makes all provisions. The conscious mind determines what and the subconscious figures out how.
Our all the experiences are accumulated in our subconscious mind. But whenever we try to use them they become part of the subconscious mind. Sigmund Freud has said that suppressed desires and thoughts are accumulated in subconscious mind. They form our personality and play significant roles in our conduct and behavior.
Shakespear said, “Our body is garden and we are all gardeners.” So you are a gardener and you are planting seeds (thoughts) in your subconscious mind all day long, based on your habitual thinking. As you sow in your subconscious mind, so shall you reap in your body and in your perceptions. Every thought is, therefore, a cause and every condition is an effect. For this reason, it is essential that you take charge of your thought so as to bring forth only desirable conditions
