47 Facts About The Subconscious Mind You Need To Know

47 Facts About The Subconscious Mind

A couple weeks ago, I was asked to participate in a special blog post at LoneMind.com, where 26 experts (including me) were asked to mention  3 things that most people don’t know about the subconscious mind.

The information that was gathered there is so rich , I feel that it’s a real  little encyclopedia of the subconscious mind explained.

That’s why I decided to write this post by naming and paraphrasing some of the main points shared by those 25 (26) experts.

If you want the full version check out the post

But for an overall view of each of those experts knowledge of the subconscious mind,  here they are for you.

The subconscious mind makes no difference between what’s real and what’s imagined.

Unlike the conscious mind, the subconscious mind is illogical.

 

Thomas Miller from Subconscious Mind Mastery

Says that the subconscious mind stores all the data of our existence before we were born, and arguably if you so choose to believe, even from past lives.

That the subconscious mind is a gate keeper, a guardian, so to speak, that makes sure that everything works in order, such as our body functions.

And that the subconscious mind connects with infinity, with the divine. It’s part of our soul.

 

Fay Thompson from FayThompson.com

Says that our whole history from every life time is in our subconscious mind.

That the subconscious mind does not contain the truth, but our version of the truth, such as limitations and beliefs which are not necessarily true, but true to our subconscious mind.

She goes on to say that the subconscious mind will always gravitate to what it knows.

The unknown is scary for the subconscious mind, even if the unknown is best for us.  Just has I did myself, she takes the battered woman syndrome. That’s why a woman who has been abused will most likely get into another relationship of abuse, because that’s what her subconscious knows.

 

Michael Craig from Logical Soul

Says that according to Huna, the subconscious mind is like a whole different being inside us, able to communicate with the High Self.

He talked about hypnotherapy as being one of the best tools to get rid of phobias which usually come from the subconscious mind.

 

Tony Fahkry from TonyFahkry.com

Says that most of our beliefs and thoughts about the world were formed during the age of 2 and 7 when most of our learning was subconscious.

Something very similar to what I said myself.

Katy Tremblay from Personal Transformation Starts Here

Says that unless one is trying to learn about their conscious versus their subconscious, the latter will remain a mystery. Many people are totally unware of the subconscious part of their mind.

She went on to say that the subconscious mind is the creative medium which all results spring from.

The conscious acts as the gardener who choose what seed to plant and nurture while the miracle (the subconscious mind) happens under the earth making the seed grow into a plant with the proper nutrients and water that the gardener (the conscious) is giving it.

And that gardener (the conscious) doesn’t need to understand anything about how the plant will come about (how the subconscious will make things happen).

 

Colin Robertson from Will Powered

Says that one of the best ways to consciously program the subconscious mind is through visualization which is used mainly by athletes.

But he reminds us that we can all do it too, to influence our results.

    Hi Sylviane,

    As you know me well, I love the subject of the subconscious mind. It is so powerful and most people don’t even want to recognize it.

    Working with hypnosis, rapid eye movement in EMDR, I did get rid of phobias I had, but it was all in my subconscious mind.

    This is why I’m so passionate about people understanding it. We can change our lives for the better when working with another person dealing with that subconscious mind.

    Although I love what everyone had to say, my favorite ones are by Fay Thompson, David Michie, and George Papada.

    • Hi Donna,

      Yes, indeed, phobias are located in that part of our mind, called the subconscious, that’s why often don’t even know WHY we have such and such phobia.

      I know hypnosis is a great way to get rid of phobias. I’ve started to practice REM recently and I love it. I’m learning more about it and I’ll write about it one of these days.

      I really liked what Fay Thompson said as well. That was on of my favorite too.

      Glad you came. Have a great day and stay warm. Snow has come all the way down here 🙂

    Hi Sylviane,

    What an abundance of information!
    Fascination doesn’t even
    begin to describe my interest in the subconscious mind and even
    genetically or chemically embedded processes that exist in our brain.

    An often used example is that different types of birds, build different
    kinds of nests.

    Don’t remember where I was reading, but researchers were working to
    discover how living creatures are able to do “in bred” task whether
    they lived with their own kind or were segregated from birth, but
    still performed characteristic traits without being taught.

    One of the conclusions was that there really is a subconscious mind
    at work and that individuals exposed to and having learned new
    behaviors are able to pass these new skills onto their progeny without
    physically on hand teaching them the new skills.

    There is a good and a bad part…we can get lucky and have parents with
    great skills for adapting to real life challenges, or on the other hand come
    from people that have never learned, therefore not only don’t teach or
    pass on the physical tendency to live more adaptive lives.

    Skills can be learned if motivated, however for those without the super
    subconscious the process takes longer and isn’t as habitual as those who are
    born knowing and can exhibit proficiency almost effortlessly.

    It isn’t just about physical skills, but ways of thinking..how we make decisions or
    avoid making decisions. Not all, but most of it is embedded in the
    subconscious when we are born.

    To simplify for a skill that takes physical and mental skills:

    Maybe the next generation will be born texting before they can talk.

    • Hi Cararta,

      So sorry for the late reply here, but I had not forgotten about you.

      I’m so with you on that. The subconscious mind is fascinating, indeed. and what you’re saying about those bird kinds is so true. They are like pre-programmed by a higher force for sure. Not all they know is learned. Some of it is already there for sure.

      It’s like languages. Do you know that if you parents or grandparents spoke a foreign language that they never taught you, you would still most likely learn that language easier than someone who has no parents or grandparents speaking it?

      That I can say I’ve experience myself, so I know that’s true. Thus the expression people use, it’s in your blood. Which we should really say, it’s in the subconscious of the family.

      Yes, the subconscious mind is fascinating, indeed.

      Thanks so much for coming and sharing this.

    Hi Sylviane,

    Great topic!
    Well, I often hear about the subconscious mind in the hypnotist though. Honestly, I do not really know about the subconscious mind, but I am interested in this topic. So, read these facts help me to better understand it, although I do not quite understand it, but this could be a reference for me. 🙂

    Thanks for sharing, Sylviane.
    Have a great week!

    Hey Sylviane,

    It’s amazing how powerful the subconscious mind is. I’m really finding out how powerful it is through the use of yoga in the mornings.

    I do these yoga one-legged balancing positions and at first it was very difficult me to do them. I took some yoga classes and the teacher made some conscious suggestions which didn’t work for me. So I had to dig deep. In order for me to do these one-legged balancing positions and literally have to think of nothing, which basically I’m clearing my mind so that it itself can be balanced. I don’t know if I’m explaining this right, but that’s what I have to do.

    Even when I’m dancing salsa music. I listen to a lot of cuban music, and the drum beats can be quite complicated and can throw someone off. Sometimes people can even start on rhythm because of how complex they can get. In a time like this I have to do the same thing as I do with the yoga balancing positions. I have to literally dig into myself, clear my mind in order for me to attach myself to the rhythm, which is the common denominator of the drum beats. And above all I have to commend the musicians for playing these complex rhythms.

    But I do with just these two examples shows the power of the subconscious, how it’s a part of your soul, your higher self, and how you can do just about anything once you connect with it!

    Thanks Sylviane for sharing these different points of view of the subconscious mind. It was quite interesting!

    • Hi Sherman,

      I think I’ve done just about it all except for yoga, because I feel that’s really something I’d like to learn with a teacher. But that’s on the list of the to the things that I want to try very soon.

      I am glad that you are able to feel how easier things get when we don’t resist them and get them from a higher place. That’s really great news.

      Thanks for sharing this here.

    Hey Sylviane,
    Good information on a subconscious mind from different authors. It is a topic which should be taught at very young age as we are unknown to the subconscious mind.
    We should master it to achieve desired success in our life

    • Hi Yash,

      That’s exactly right, we should learn those things as children and how fortunate those who do, but for most adults we had to learn that later on.

      Thank you for coming and have a great weekend.
