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.

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.

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

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).
