The word mind refers to the set of emotions, thoughts, and information. It is often mistaken to be a physical part of the brain. Well, this is not reality. The mind is better known to be a physiological element. It has two main dimensions: the conscious mind and the subconscious mind. All animals, including humans, are fully aware of the conscious mind. On the other hand, the subconscious mind is the ultimate database of all information that is being gathered by the senses. In this post, you shall know about the facts behind the subconscious mind and its significance.
THE LINK BETWEEN TWO PORTIONS.
On performing any activity, there is a link that forms between the two portions of the mind. There is a type of portal between the two sects of mind, called the critical filter. Depending on what actions you are performing, the critical filter enables critical the relevant information required at that period. For instance, when you are driving a car, the critical filter will only allow that information to flow that is necessary for driving. Generally, you know that the car should stop at the red light signal. But whenever you see a red light signal on the traffic, only then this knowledge gets applied. This phenomenon is relevant for all activities you perform. When you are performing a task for the first time, your work will not usually be perfect. This happens because the subconscious mind does not hold any relevant information for that specific task.
THE IMMENSITY OF THE SUBCONSCIOUS MIND.
The vastness of the subconscious mind is extremely hard to perceive. There are millions of megabytes of data stored in the subconscious mind. The subconscious mind covers an immense proportion of 90% in total. Think of the mind to be like a glacier submerged in the ocean. The major part that is submerged underwater is like the subconscious mind, while the elevated visible portion above is like the conscious mind. Like the hidden major underwater part of the glacier, the subconscious mind also remains hidden and unnoticed. The example of the glacier is the simplest way to approach the concept.
PAST LIVES: MYTH OR REALITY?
From time immemorial, there has been an enormous amount of debate and discussion on past lives. However, the concept of past lives is applicable in this scenario. Some scholars believe that an additional amount of information is stored in the subconscious mind from our past lives. There are several arguments to justify past lives. One of those arguments is, "How does a newborn baby know how to suck milk?" Well, these arguments are logical and compel scholars to think more briefly in these matters. Besides, reincarnations and rebirths are also mentioned in various religious texts.
SIGNIFICANCE OF THE SUBCONSCIOUS MIND
In the absence of the subconscious mind, you would lack coordination. However, this is not possible, theoretically, and practically. Human beings have the most complex cerebral function amongst all species. With a complex brain, there is more complicated psychology. This is one of those key factors that differentiates a human being from the rest of the species. There would be no planned strategy, no markets, no economy, no education. The world would not be the same as it is in the present.
Interestingly, without the subconscious mind, you wouldn't even be able to know about it. This is because of the subconscious mind that human beings can hold their tremendous potential to think and prosper. That's the beauty and real essence of creation.
For the first time in history, human intellect is expanding like never before, and this evolution will continue. Meditation is the most effective way to explore these unknown dimensions. A proper guided meditating technique will guide you to focus on your breath since breathing occurs under this section of the mind. Once you are fully aware of the breathing process, you will experience a natural upsurge of energy within yourself. The tasks that are done daily are associated with the subconscious mind.
Meditation is not something we do; it is what we become. We must not think of mediation as a process; it is a quality. If we set the perfect chemistry in our minds, we will become meditative. Generally, humans begin can access only 10 percent of the subconscious mind. If we can access this segment absolutely, the fabric of reality may be altered. Innovation, comfort, and conveniences are expanding at an exponential rate.
