I’m really interested in psychology. Today I’d like to introduce one part of psychology, the subconscious. Subconscious is in everybody’s mind and useful in our life. The word is from Freud’s theory of personality. He thought that people’s conscious was just the tip of the iceberg and subconscious occupied a bigger part of it. Subconscious is always in your mind, no matter where you are or whatever you do.
The most interesting characteristic of it is that it controls your bodily functions. For example, if you focus on your breathing right now. Since the time you are reading my blog, you are breathing but your conscious attention is on reading. It is your subconscious mind that is controlling your breathing. Currently, you are breathing consciously because I told you to pay attention to your breathing. As soon as you shift your attention back to reading my blog, your subconscious mind will again take over the breathing activity.
Subconscious still has many other characteristics. Besides, it is useful in our life. It can be used in hypnosis. By entering the state of hypnosis we can safely bypass the Conscious Critical Faculty part of the mind and ‘reprogram’ the subconscious so that it takes on board new, better ideas. It can help people to forget the bad experience and get a better future. In conscious, if you believe in the power of your subconscious mind, regardless of what you want and what you are aiming for, your subconscious mind can, and will, always guide you with answers that you couldn’t have possibly imagined.
