The more we’re aware of and deal with our unconscious thoughts, the more we will stay consciously connected. As children growing up, we never make the conscious connections we need to make.
It is only when we begin to look back on those times that we became aware. But we need to consciously think about, analyse and deal with things if we are going to change our behaviour. Sadly, unless we can consciously stay in the moment, it’s our subconscious thoughts and patterns that will continue to guide our behaviour.
The subconscious is involuntary, it is the reasoning mind that remains in a dormant state that we have no access to, unless we learn how to access it. The subconscious accepts what is impressed upon it. The subconscious stores all our experiences, until such a time those experiences emerge and take shape as an outer experience, that corresponds to their content.
The subconscious doesn’t reason like the conscious can. It doesn’t argue what it receives, it just takes what we give it. But for our behaviour patterns to change, the subconscious and conscious must work in sync with each other.
Unless we make ourselves aware of what lies beneath our conscious, we will fail to deal with past experiences and therefore fail to make our conscious connections to change any shortcomings.
