An Overview of the Subconscious Mind

The brain is the most complicated organ of the human body. Doctors and researchers are bringing to light many unknown facts about the brain everyday that we did not already know about. Even though researchers are constantly making strides in terms of understanding the human brain, it continues to remain a highly complex topic of research with much more study needed to truly understand it. Even though researchers are finding new ways for us to use our minds to their fullest abilities and much greater efficiency, in most cases that is just not possible.

We can simply and easily classify our mind into two parts – a conscious mind and a subconscious mind. The functions of both are very different; however, each complements the other. Without one, the other is useless. The conscious mind takes signals and transfers them to the subconscious mind. Then, the subconscious mind takes these signals, does some behind the scenes thinking, and instantly processes the emotions we feel in the moment. This is obviously an over simplified hyperbole of how it works for use in our context today, however that doesn’t change the simple fact that our subconscious minds play a significant role in the way we interact with and react to the world around us.

You can solve most of the problems in your life if you use the subconscious mind effectively. However, you must learn to study your inner voice and only then, can you know how to use your subconscious mind. The efficient use of your subconscious mind allows you to effectively moderate your emotional responses and hold your judgement. This is a rare quality that may allow you to persevere against much of the adversity faced throughout your life.

Before you study your subconscious mind, here are some points that you may find useful. A person with a negatively degraded mentality cannot easily move forward in life. Low levels of confidence and tendencies towards dishonesty (as it relates to themselves and others) also stops a person from moving forward in life. Thus, if you want to achieve success and use your subconscious mind effectively, then you need to unlearn your negative limiting beliefs and learn to reframe your perspective and overall outlook surrounding your feelings about your life. This also makes it imperative for parents to teach their child the right things from the early days of childhood. Then, as the child grows they can use their subconscious mind to positively cope with compulsions or helpfully reinforce learning new concepts. Eventually these subconscious skills will become habit.

This was just an brief overview of the functions of the subconscious mind. In reality, there are a number of functions of a subconscious mind, which we are not even currently aware of. As research improves our understanding of what is possible by strengthening our subconscious thinking we may yet be able to unlock new cognitive abilities or even improve our mental efficiency.
