“The conscious mind may be compared to a fountain playing in the sun and falling back into the great subterranean pool of subconscious from which it rises.”
– Sigmund Freud
In a manner similar to that of an iceberg, the conscious mind is but the tip of the vast nexus of knowledge that exists within you. Your mind at the subconscious level contains an enormous amount of wisdom that is most of the time underutilized. It is only upon unlocking the vast untapped potentials of the subconscious mind that we can unleash our true potential and radically change our lives as we know it.
Owen Feltham summarizes meditation as “the soul’s perspective glass”. Among the many ways that you can gain access to your unconscious mind, the easiest happens to be meditation. Meditation takes you deeper into your mind’s hitherto unexplored regions, thus allowing you to enter a state of being that is akin to dreaming. Your brain patterns become slower and more structured as the noise and chaos of everyday life start to drown away.
Upon entering into a meditative state you will notice a radical change in terms of perception. Random thoughts may seemingly ‘pop into your head’ – these thoughts are actually not random at all but rather the thoughts of your subconscious mind beginning to assert itself on your consciousness. It is at this juncture that meditation really benefits you. It helps you to contemplate upon the problem at hand thus allowing you unique solutions to your problems. The best part about meditation is that it is extremely easy to learn and can be picked up effortlessly.
The subconscious has always a way of reasserting on the self without actually conveying through words. Something socially constructed like language is more commonly used by the logical mind. The subconscious mind on the other hand bases itself upon signs, symbols, music, art and images. It is therefore important to delve into your creative instincts and practice any form of art. Many people have testified that art often opens up and expresses things which are difficult to explain in coherent words. One can easily upon nurturing their creative self come into closer contact with the subconscious.
Flow with Instincts
Whenever you are confronted with a problem, the first thing that comes into your mind is the response of the subconscious section. When this happens, you may not be able to deduce how you ended up getting this decision logically but you know that it is the ‘right’ decision. While some of the times, it may turn out to be true, most of the times these decisions turn out to be true and accurate. Quite astonishing! Your subconscious mind is always available to you, once you know the way to unlock the door. Once you start living your life in tune with your subconscious you will wonder how you ever got by before – once you are accessing your subconscious mind on a daily basis your life will truly be transformed.
