What is Subconscious Mind?
Let us begin with what we know. Every day we learn new things, are able to use our past learning or education to perform a variety of tasks – this is due to our mind. This is called the conscious mind which is also consciousness or awareness.
Whereas subconscious mind is responsible for everything which is happening in the body without you being conscious about it such as breathing, digestions of food, beating of heart, blood pressure control and other functions. Subconscious mind is also responsible for what you are in terms of your behaviour, response to a situation or stimuli, the pattern of thinking – in brief what your personality is and what you are and perhaps much more than what is visible externally.
Let us try to understand subconscious mind in another way. It is a program which is running in your system and is responsible for the habits, beliefs, self image you have.

What does Subconscious Mind do?
Your sub conscious mind works obediently the way you have allowed it to be programmed. The image of yourself which you have is stored in your sub conscious mind. If you have cultivated a very high image of yourself then you will be a very capable person who is not bound by any limitations. To be more specific, if a well trained marine corp or navy seal has to go out in night in a notorious neighborhood he will not hesitate even for a moment. His sub conscious mind knows no fears. At the same time, if there were a fashion designer, s/he will hesitate and will think ten times before venturing out. Because, the sub conscious mind of the fashion designer is program to the effect that the person is very good at playing with delicate things including fabrics and accessories. Fighting on the street is not for him or her.
Hence you are a manifestation of what is stored in your sub conscious mind in terms of your strengths and weaknesses; capabilities and limitations and like this other behaviour patterns. Therefore, by way of this example you will appreciate that everything is in real terms.
How Subconscious Mind influences our life?
Most of the things that you do automatically or as routine activities are performed through sub conscious mind. For example, when you brush your teeth every morning or switch off or switch on the electric supply to gadgets in the kitchen, you do so mechanically that you are able to think of new things in parallel such as what shirt you would wear to office today or what is the priority task in the office. This may be getting done almost automatically without you being very much aware of it.
Taking this concept further, you may realize that whatever is your state of affairs today – your friends circle, your job, your financial position, the money you earn or the quality of your relationship is being caused by your subconscious mind. To recall, your subconscious mind is a huge collection of how you are programmed to behave, respond, react and what kind of habits or attitudes you have.
Whether you are happy with your life or not, it all can be attributed to your subconscious mind and it is programmed for you.
Why some people fail to get desired results?
Suppose you have been struggling to lose weight or increase your income but are hitting the wall then there is a role of your beliefs which are limiting your trust in your capabilities, or keeping yourself image at low level. The actions you are taking to increase your income or reduce your body weight are passing through habits and beliefs and they are coming from your subconscious mind. If your self image is that of an obese person, no matter how hard you try, the results may not be very satisfactory.
Similarly if you stuck with the belief that you are not good in money management, you may not be able to increase your earnings substantially – something you want.
The real solution lies in changing the way we think and act at the subconscious level rather than the conscious level.
Can Subconscious Mind be re-programmed to get desired results?
Fortunately, it is possible to change or alter the programming of your sub conscious mind in case you are not happy with the results in any aspect of your life or want to be more successful in an area.
However, it is not as simple as switching on TV or starting the car a one would like to believe.
How Subconscious Mind can be programmed to get desired results?
It is said that the subconscious mind is a good servant but a bad master. One has to use tools like rewards and repetition to retrain this servant.
Is it too much to ask for? No it is not. You and everyone does it on almost every day basis. Take the example of the event in your life when you were learning how to drive a car. Initially, you were so focussed and holding the steering with your hands rather tightly with your eyes fixed on the road, you were not even winking. There were so many moves you were trying to learn at that time that you were forgetting or getting confused. That was your conscious mind learning to drive. A few sessions or days later, you became good a good driver and comfortable with the controls of the car and following the traffic rules perfectly. Now you are so good at driving that you chat almost nonstop with your co passengers and sometimes also take calls on the mobile phone.
This is a result of now your subconscious getting programmed for driving the car and you are free to do other things. Your car is being driven on auto pilot and your chatting is through the conscious mind. Now driving has become a habit.
You may recall that successful people are always said to use tools like consistency and persistence to achieve their goals.
Thus by putting new program in the subconscious mind for achieving the desired habit or self image or personality traits you can make yourself more capable and empowered to accomplish whatever you may decide to.
In case there is a negative program in your system, you can fix it by putting the desired or more suitable program to correct / improve your personality.
Do make sure that the program is well embedded so that the autopilot takes over and manages your system.
Rules of the subconscious mind
As mentioned earlier, the subconscious mind is an obedient servant and a poor master. It learns by repetition and not by logic. It accepts whatever is fed into it by method of repetition.
This is why it is easier to convince someone to believe in something by appealing to his emotions and rather than repeating your than giving him a logical reasoning.
