10 Facts of the SubConscious Mind

Our subconscious mind exerts a powerful influence over our lives. It preserves and runs the body. It stores and organizes memories, emotions, and energy. It controls and maintains all of our perceptions. Over 95% of what we do, think, and say comes from old programming in our subconscious mind.

1. Despite its power, the subconscious is a servant of the conscious mind. It follows orders by acting on whatever is fed to it. It cannot distinguish between what is real and what is imagined. It has no sense of humor and takes everything very literally. Your conscious mind is the gate-keeper. For personal power, you must be aware of what you are allowing into the subconscious. And you can intentionally program it to manifest what you want in life.

2. The subconscious mind responds with instinct and habit. As thinking and behavioral patterns deepen, they become habits and they become harder and harder to change.

 3. Use repetition, authority, and emotion to program the subconscious. Affirm and visualize often what you desire. Be strong, willful and in command. Draw on your passion and emotional power to affirm what you want, as emotions have a very strong impact on the subconscious mind.

4. The subconscious mind does not process negatives. For this reason, all affirmations and statements must be positive. Do not say, “I will not gain weight.” The ‘not’ is not recorded. The subconscious mind only hears, “I will gain weight.”

5. The subconscious represses memories with unresolved negative emotions. The memories will get buried, yet the beliefs and feelings associated with them will still control your reactions. This is why it is important to become aware of and resolve strong guilt, resentment, fears, anger, and depression.

6. The subconscious mind works with symbols and metaphors. Watch your dreams closely for symbols that will offer clues to underlying issues that need to be resolved.

Mystical Mudras

Mudras are very useful during meditation. When I use mudras they give me a sense of when i’m drifting away from my physical senses. When my fingers are in a mudra and I have my eyes closed It becomes harder and harder to feel the way my fingers are situated. So I use them as a gauge as well.
Mudrasz There is even an app to view mudras on your mobile device. Check out 99 mudras here

The Lucky Lucid Dreamer

Lucid dreaming is awareness of the fact that you are dreaming. This awareness can range from very faint recognition of the fact to something as momentous as a broadening of awareness beyond what has ever been experienced even in waking life. Lucid dreams usually occur while a person is in the middle of a regular dream and suddenly realizes that they are dreaming. Once you realize this, you have the ability to control your dreams, which is pretty much the most essential part of lucid dreaming.

My Experiences: Im a very visual person. I think in pictures over words most of the time. When it comes time to sleep my habit of being a visual thinker carries over into the dream world. There has been times were it felt as if i were living two lives. I would wake up live out my normal day then go to sleep and be on the run from police for robbing  a bank or some wild scheme. My lucidity seems to come back full power whenever I dont partake in the marijuana festivities. From what i have read marijuana will  suppress REM (rapid eye movement) sleep which is related to the dream state. After that week of having what I like to say was “too many dreams” I am careful with what I watch on television and play on the radio. All forms of entertainment leave imprints on the mind which can echo back to you in all types of ways.  I will post logs of my detailed dreams soon!
