Most people know that the “mind” operates basically on two levels – the Conscious Mind and the Subconscious mind. The purpose of this post is to explore the difference between the two types of mind, so that we can understand what we do to improve the way we use our mind to learn and function in daily life.
The subconscious mind is an amazing part of our human existence which essentially controls our whole existence by shaping our behavior, identity, and beliefs. It allows us to form relationships with other people to fulfill our dreams and goals, allowing us to create whatever we desire.
Although the exact scope and abilities of the subconscious mind have not yet been discovered, I believe that by harnessing this unique thinking system, we can create an amazing life and achieve true happiness. Everything begins with a single thought, which is the primary signal that enters our subconscious minds. Our thoughts are what guide and command the subconscious mind. This means that essentially, a person’s entire world is shaped by his or her thoughts and that every single thought has a consequence.
“Every thought of yours is a real thing—a force”
~ Prentice Mulford ~
A beautiful and positive thought has the potential to create a whole new story in one’s life. At a basic, fundamental level, whatever we think, we create.
Whatever reality people create begins as a simple thought in their head. A person’s life is the result of his or her every single thought. What separates individuals from one another are the kinds of thoughts they have. So it can be said that the major difference between a successful person and one who has failed could be identified as the difference in their beliefs and the thought system by which they operate. Poverty and failure are the result of poor thoughts, while wealth and success are the result of rich thoughts. You ARE what you believe.
It doesn’t matter whether you think that you will succeed or think that you will fail; in both cases you’ve thought accurately. If you think you will succeed, your positive thoughts will move and guide you toward success. If, from the very beginning, you think that you will fail, your negative thoughts will generate negative feelings in your body, and as a result, you will either give up or your behavior and actions will CAUSE you to fail. Your thoughts are POWERFUL and can bring about health, just as easily as they can cause illness. People who have beautiful and hopeful thoughts stay healthy. People who have negative and cynical thoughts not only face failure in life, but they also attract health problems.
