#3 Your subconscious mind plays a complex yet pervasive role in how you perceive the world.
You may find it hard to believe but let us explain this to you.
Just think about these questions:
- Do you get angry?
- Do you feel anxious?
- Have you ever felt depressed?
- Do you procrastinate?
At the same time you know that these habits aren’t good for you!
The feelings and emotions like fears, desires and urges are the results of subconscious mind’s processes that decide how you see the world and your place in it, moment by moment.
If your conscious awareness about certain situations is limited, your subconscious mind will make the choices while working on autopilot. It’s choice would be based on your natural or learned tendencies, for good or bad, it could be right or wrong choice.
Remember your subconscious mind is the file cabinet of all your memories? Through those memories and experiences, your subconscious mind decides how you respond to life’s situations and make decisions.
But your subconscious mind also knows the answers to the various questions and can suggest solutions to many problems.

Your subconscious mind grows flowers or weeds in the garden of your life. It depends what you planted via your thoughts and emotions.
Your subconscious mind never questions or argues with its master – that is you. It works day and night to make your behavior fit a pattern consistent with your emotions, thoughts, self image and desires.
#5 Your Subconscious Mind is a restless monkey
The best way to describe the working of a untrained subconscious mind is to think of it as a wild monkey. It can run amok the whole day as it does not get tired easily.
All of a sudden it can bring up random pieces of information to the main part of the brain. Whereas a trained mind, could be given the task of getting busy with achieving your goals and bringing you the information that you need to succeed.
It could be trained to identify right opportunities.

How To Activate Amazing Power of The Subconscious Mind
In order to master the techniques and methods to use the amazing power of your subconscious mind, it is important to fully understand the unique features and working of your subconscious mind. This we have covered in the previous lines.
And now let us proceed with first understanding how to communicate to your subconscious mind.
Communicating to your subconscious mind
The method of communicating to your subconscious mind is slightly different because it should be done in the language of thoughts filled with genuine emotions and images. Only the thoughts that are conveyed with genuine feelings and emotions make it to your subconscious mind.
Also those thoughts that are backed up by a strong emotion stay in the subconscious mind better and longer.
Be careful, this principal is true both for the negative and the positive emotional thoughts. And as you might agree, unfortunately the negative emotions are usually more intense than the positive emotions.
Now let us see various techniques to program or talk to or give command to your sub conscious mind.
Technique #1: Have only positive and constructive thoughts
As you may know, your subconscious doesn’t evaluate, judge, or edit the commands given to it. One of the methods of giving these commands is through our repeated thoughts and words.
The subconscious mind will obediently carry out the instructions or command given to it. It will manifest success, abundance, happiness and good health just as easily as it will cause reasons for failure, ill health, and misfortune.
Therefore, be aware of your thoughts because the subconscious mind accepts what is impressed upon it with feeling and repetition.
It does not care whether these thoughts are positive or negative. It does not discriminate things like your conscious mind does. This is why it is so important to be aware of what you are thinking.
Technique #2: Affirmations
Nature has given us five senses to receive information and we have control over what information enters the subconscious mind, through these senses.
Using our sensory perceptions, the method of sending thoughts to the subconscious mind is called affirmations or auto-suggestion.
It comprises of repeating positive statements in present tense and they reach your mind through the senses. These statements could be listened to or written down or spoken to oneself repeatedly.
These dominating thoughts then remain in the conscious mind which make their way to the subconscious mind and influence it.
Be careful, these statements could be negative or positive. A thought dominates with a strong emotion is able to program the subconscious mind to act accordingly.
