I’m a big believer in the power of the subconscious mind. And I trust mine.
I trust it to remind me where I want to go, and to use my gut feeling to pull me back on track. That’s why I’m not a big believer in goal-setting. If I know where I want to go, and I genuinely have a desire to get there, then I can leave my conscious mind to be guided by its silent but powerful counterpart.
Have you ever woken up from a dream and felt so strongly about what you were dreaming that it took control of your mood? Maybe you dreamt your girlfriend cheated on you, and you woke up despising her even though the feeling was based on nothing but thoughts. You’re more wary of her and, for the next little while, you don’t trust her as much — all because your brain had concocted a story in your head while you were asleep.
That’s your subconscious mind taking control of your emotions. But imagine if we empowered our subconscious to guide us in love, motivation, and happiness? Those positive, driving feelings would be just as prominent. It’d be as though our favourite soundtrack is playing in the back of our minds every day.
We just need to feed our conscious brain information about who we are as individuals, and our subconscious takes care of the rest. It’s the engine and the gears behind our conscious steering wheel. All we have to do is fuel it and be guided by its direction.
