How To Connect With The Subconscious Mind

The ability of learning how to connect with the subconscious mind involves knowing what the subconscious mind will accept or ignore. Buried within each of us is a code or “password” to unlock the subconscious mind and give us access. We used it often when we were children. But as we become adults and we learn to navigate life, we “throw away the key” and forget how to regain admittance.
In order to figure out how to connect with the subconscious mind, we need to treat it as its own separate being.  Your subconscious mind has been with you for your entire life. Think about that. It knows your habits (the good ones and the bad ones). It knows what you’re good at and what you’re still learning (or have never attempted). It will protect you from what you don’t want to face. It will only follow what it’s programmed to do. Your subconscious mind is a robot that works inside of you.
The subconscious mind is an engine that works continually in the background, while all of the conscious mind handles activity in the foreground. Foreground activities include creative pursuits, new ideas, new thoughts, new concepts. The litmus test for whether or not you’re employing the conscious mind is if you have to spend time to learn it (like a foreign language, an unfamiliar highway on a road trip, or a new skill set) then you are working with the conscious mind.
The subconscious mind only kicks in once you’ve fully learned and digested the new information. Once the new activity becomes rote and routine where you don’t have to actively think about it, like driving a car, riding a bicycle, writing, or tying a shoe, your subconscious mind takes over. This is great for new skills and traits that are beneficial. But not so great for old bad habits or vices which you’d like to abandon.

What Is The Subconscious Mind?

The subconscious mind is a storehouse of information. It’s not an actual physical place which you could pinpoint on a map of the human body. like general anatomy or physiology. The subconscious mind exists on a different plane of existence, similar to how our emotions, thoughts, feelings, and desires exist on another plane or dimension.
The subconscious mind controls our behaviors, more specifically, our habits. These are skills, traits, vices, or routines which have become ingrained and innate within us. Some of these habits benefit us. Many of them don’t. Our subconscious only stores what we tell it to. Often times, we don’t even realize we’re storing information and in fact, the storing of the wrong information (misinformation or disinformation) can be destructive and detrimental.

What does the subconscious mind do? Our conscious mind allows us to grow, change, and learn. While our subconscious takes all of those changes and learns for us to be able to recall once again. In every way, our subconscious is a life saver and we can rely on it for life affirming and necessary skills.

For example, breathing. We don’t need to think about each and every breath we take. However, our subconscious can handle that for us. Some scientists would say that’s simply the autonomic nervous system. But again that is only looking at it from the physical plane. When viewing it from the etheric or astral, it is the subconscious that is handling it.
What Does Subconscious Mind Mean? There is the conscious, subconscious, superconscious, and the unconscious. The subconscious works by relaying messages from the conscious mind to the superconscious mind. The superconscious can be thought of as the giant network or brain that unites and connects all of our subconscious minds. It is Infinite Intelligence, the Divinity, Creative Intelligence, or Source. It is what make flowers and grass grow.

How Your Subconscious Mind Works

The subconscious mind works by receiving messages from the conscious mind. Once the message is received, it is permanently saved until another message overrides it. Often times we save messages that we don’t want the subconscious mind to process.

Bad habits like vices (heavy drinking, smoking, over-the-counter (OTC), prescription or illicit / recreational drugs) which can be damaging, detrimental and saved by accident. This is why it’s important to only partake in positive, good habits, so as to not get stuck with a bad one you cannot erase. For more on the subconscious mind, read our post: “How Does The Subconscious Mind Work?“.

In terms of the various ways of ‘saving’ these messages, according to Dr. Bruce Lipton, the subconscious mind can receive messages through four (4) different methods:

Hypnosis – In this day and age, hypnosis is very common and familiar to our society. Many people use hypnosis as a way to overcome vices, lose weight, or incorporate much wanted personality or character traits. It can also be used as a parlor trick and entertainment for many a hen party or public appearance. However, hypnosis can be very effective when working with the subconscious.
The art of subconscious suggestion is not an exact science mainly because hypnosis is not guaranteed to work on everyone. Every person has a different level of suggestibility. Some people are easily ‘put under’ and fixed into a “hypnotic trance”. While others are much more hardened and insensitive when it comes to a hypnotic suggestion. It’s just a matter of human design, like DNA, or different tastes in food.
Managing the subconscious mind using hypnosis offers some flexibility in that you don’t need another human being there to create the trance. You can put yourself in a hypnotic trance during sleep or meditation. Playing a recording of a mantra, a value statement, or affirmation over and over again (repetition) while you sleep (theta), or while in a deep meditative trance-like state (alpha) can be very effective.
Repetition – Of all the methods of training and working with the subconscious mind, repetition is the most common technique and the easiest to undergo. Without even knowing it, we use repetition in our everyday lives. If you attended any type of educational institution (primary school, grade school, high school, or university), then you are very familiar with using repetition in order to send a message to the subconscious mind.
Think of our day to day lives. We learn through repetition all the time. If you meet someone new, you may need to repeat their name a few times before you fully remember it. When learning a new language, we may repeat sounds or phrases over and over before our mouth muscles get used to the speech pattern.
Mastering a new skill like dancing, playing an instrument or a sport, which may take hours of practice. But overtime, the skill becomes innate and we may move through the fundamentals more fluidly without thinking, like a reflex or by using instinct. These are all examples of using repetition to influence the subconscious mind.
Super learning – From birth to the age of seven years old, all humans are in a perpetual state of super learning. This is when our brains are operating continually on a theta wavelength. This beginning stage of life (age 0 – 7) is a time period of super absorption of information. It is a way for the child to survive. If you reexamine human evolution, early humans needed to find a way to survive and learn as much information as soon as possible because outside threats to their lives.
Protecting against enemy tribes, predators, inclement weather and changes in season, as well as finding resources for food, shelter, and other basic requirements were necessary in order to get through each day. Although an infant or child may not be responsible or old enough to carry out such activities, watching and learning from the adults was key to survival.
So learning how to communicate, walk or travel, search or forage, build, swim, hunt, were all skills a human child needed to learn quickly. And there weren’t classrooms with desks papers or pens to study this. It needed to be done asap! So this was all absorbed via the subconscious mind simply by paying attention to the environment around them.

This brings up the question of nature and nurture. Again, according Dr. Lipton, nurture wins out over nature every single time. The study of epigenetics focuses on this very phenomenon.

A Shocking or Traumatic event – An event that renders a shock to the mind. This is not the operable or ideal way to change the subconscious. But when it happens it is a potent and . Often these events are uninvited and unpredictable, like a car accident, PTSD, or witnessing an unwelcome or unwanted event that you cannot erase from your mind.
The clear difference between these methods are not just the techniques, but also the length of time it takes for the subconscious to actually edit or make the change. Super learning is the fastest method, while the others will be longer in duration and vary depending on the subject’s level of adaptability.

How The Subconscious Mind Creates Your Reality

The subconscious mind takes its cues from the conscious mind. The conscious mind, when it is active and fully present, is in charge. It doles out the orders and gives the cues to the subconscious mind. The conscious mind designs our world, while the subconscious mind brings it into reality.
The core challenge with how to connect with the subconscious mind is that the subconscious mind doesn’t make any judgment calls or distinctions on what information it is being fed. It cannot decide what is good information or bad information.
If your conscious is laboring over negative and detrimental thoughts and the subconscious receives those cues, it will create it in reality. Essentially, the subconscious is a robot. It only processes the information. It doesn’t make a call on whether or not the information will benefit you.
In an ideal setting, the conscious mind creates things you want in your life. Great love, money and abundance, peace and happiness. You name it. The trick is to get the subconscious mind to only bring to life the reality you want as opposed to the one that you don’t.
