YOUR MIND

Here are two parts to the mind – the conscious and the subconscious mind.
When your conscious mind thinks you want something but deep down in your subconscious mind you don’t really believe you can achieve it – you create an internal conflict that holds you back. It is more than likely that, even as you read this, your subconscious is impressed with doubts of your ability to succeed and it is exactly these underlying self-limiting thoughts that we need to help you address.  If you feel like you have an internal battle going on in your mind – you probably have. In order to attract what you’d really prefer in life and help you grow and move forward your conscious and unconscious should be at peace not at war,

The Conscious Mind

The Conscious Mind

In Sigmund Freud's psychoanalytic theory of personality, the conscious mind consists of everything inside of our awareness. This is the aspect of our mental processing that we can think and talk about in a rational way. The conscious mind includes such things as the sensations, perceptions, memories, feeling and fantasies inside of our current awareness. Closely allied with the conscious mind is the preconscious, which includes the things that we are not thinking of at the moment but which we can easily draw into conscious awareness. Things that the conscious mind wants to keep hidden from awareness are repressed into the unconscious mind. While we are unaware of these feelings, thoughts, urges and emotions, Freud believed that the unconscious mind could still have an influence on our behavior. Things that are in the unconscious are only available to the conscious mind in disguised form. For example, the contents of the unconscious might spill into awareness in the form of dreams. Freud believed that by analyzing the content of dreams, people could discover the unconscious influences on their conscious actions.

The Conscious Mind: Just the Tip of the Iceberg

Hypnotherapy, Psychotherapy, Psychology, Counselling, Mental Health and Alternative Medicine

THE TIP OF THE ICEBERG

The largest and most powerful part of the iceberg, however, remains unseen below the surface of the water and this represents our unconscious mind. This part of the mind is the source of your emotions and feelings and contains all your beliefs, habits and learnt behaviour patterns. It is also the part of your mind that is in action when you use your imagination, creativity or dream.
 

There are two parts to the mind – the conscious and the unconscious mind. Most people try to change their behavior using just their willpower in the conscious mind – however they don’t change the programmed habits and beliefs that are stored in the unconscious mind…This is where my work is different.  Critically, the unconscious mind is also responsible for maintaining the body in good health by regulating all the autonomic processes including controlling breathing, blood circulation, heart rate, blood pressure, digestion and control of the nervous system, just to name a few.
 

It’s interesting to be aware that our conscious mind can only process about 10-20 pieces of information at any one time whereas our subconscious mind can be aware of millions of things in any given moment. When you look at it from this perspective you can understand why it makes sense to converse with the unconscious mind during a session The unconscious mind is the part of you that’s like your ‘automatic pilot’ ensuring that you continue to do the things that you’ve learnt. The problem is: sometimes we learn to do things that we later want to change! And this can be anything from physical habits to emotional responses. This is where we can help. Don’t be afraid to take the first step. Remember that facing your fear is the beginning of the path to wisdom. Call 604 202 7938

THE CONSCIOUS MIND: JUST THE TIP OF THE ICEBERG

THE TIP OF THE ICEBERG

Freud often used the metaphor of an iceberg to describe the two major aspects of human personality. The tip of the iceberg that extends above the water represents the conscious mind. As you can see in the image at the right, the conscious mind is just the “tip of the iceberg.” Beneath the water is the much larger bulk of the iceberg, which represents the unconscious.
 

While the conscious and preconscious are important, Freud believed that they were far less vital than the unconscious. The things that are hidden from awareness, he believed, exerted the greatest influence over our personalities and behaviors.
 

Conscious vs. Preconscious: What’s the Difference?
The conscious mind involves all of the things that you are currently aware of and thinking about.
It is somewhat akin to short-term memory and is limited in terms of capacity. Your awareness of yourself and the world around you are part of your consciousness.
 

The preconscious mind, also known as the subconscious mind, includes things that we might not be presently aware of but that we can pull into conscious awareness when needed. You might not presently be thinking about how to do long-division, but you can access the information and bring it into conscious awareness when you are faced with a math problem.

The preconscious mind is a part of the mind that corresponds to ordinary memory. These memories are not conscious, but we can retrieve them to conscious awareness at any time.
 

While these memories are not part of your immediate awareness, they can be quickly brought into awareness through conscious effort. For example, if you were asked what television show you watched last night or what you had for breakfast this morning, you would be pulling that information out of your preconscious.
 

A helpful way to think of the preconscious is that it acts as a sort of gatekeeper between the conscious and unconscious parts of the mind. It allows only certain pieces of information to pass through and enter conscious awareness.

The subconscious mind

What is the subconscious mind?

Think of the subconscious mind as the storage room of everything that is currently not in your conscious mind.
 

The subconscious mind stores all of your previous life experiences, your beliefs, your memories, you skills, all situations you’ve been through and all images you’ve ever seen.

​The best way to understand the subconscious mind is to look at the example of the person who wants to learn how to drive a car. At the beginning he wouldn’t be able to hold a conversation with anyone while driving as he would be focusing on the different moves involved. That’s because he’s still using his conscious mind to drive.


(mental health - hypnotherapy -  psychotherapy) 

The subconscious mind; your Autopilot!

The subconscious mind; your Autopilot!
Few weeks later driving becomes a natural habit that happens automatically without needing to think about it. That person could even start using his cell phone or talking to his friends while driving.

​This happened because the driving habit has been transferred to his subconscious mind and so the conscious mind become free. This allowed him to use it to talk in his cell phone. 

The subconscious mind is responsible for the automatically triggered feelings and emotions that you suddenly experience upon facing a new situation. If you were about to give a presentation then all the fear and anxiety feelings you might experience are in fact launched and controlled by your subconscious mind.

THE SUBCONSCIOUS MIND

THE SUBCONSCIOUS MIND

The subconscious mind is responsible for the automatically triggered feelings and emotions that you suddenly experience upon facing a new situation. If you were about to give a presentation then all the fear and anxiety feelings you might experience are in fact launched and controlled by your subconscious mind.  


The conscious mind is, on the other hand, responsible for logic, calculations and all actions that are performed while you are conscious. The subconscious mind also controls other functions in your body like breathing and heart beats.

 


Another good example that can help you better understand the subconscious mind is the process of breathing. Before you started reading the previous line your breathing was controlled by your subconscious.

 


I want you now to try and control your breathing for one minute. You will be able to do so of course. This time it was the conscious mind that was controlling your breathing, but when you let go of your focus your subconscious mind will takeover again.

 


How you can you program your subconscious mind:

When the information about driving is stored into your subconscious mind it’s stored as a program. Think of your mind as a computer and the driving information as software that can be run automatically whenever needed.


The same goes for lots of other activities and emotions. If someone annoyed you the installed program of anger is going to be launched and the result will be a behavior that you may regret later.

 


By programming the subconscious mind with new programs you can fix many problems in your personality. Just make sure that your autopilot is capable of running your system without ruining your life or causing you any problems.


Programming your subconscious can be done through hypnosis. The subconscious mind learns by repetition and not by logic.

Ego defense mechanisms

Alternative therapies for depression and anxiety in Vancouver,mental health,addictions,trauma,abuse,

Just like your body has got its defenses against physical wounds and injuries your subconscious mind has got its defenses against emotional shocks and wounds. 

  

These are called ego defense mechanisms or unconscious defense mechanisms. The ego defense mechanisms’ main function is to protect your well-being and to help you overcome emotional shocks.

The subconscious mind and forgetting about someone
The main reason people stay broken after breakups is that they have false beliefs about relationships stored in their subconscious minds. In my book, how to get over anyone in few days, i described how can getting rid of beliefs like “the one” or “the soul mate” help you forget about anybody in few days.
 

As soon as someone gets rid of these beliefs he will realize that he can one day find another person who replaces the one who left him and so recovery happens.

Using your conscious and subconscious mind together:

Alternative therapies for depression and anxiety in Vancouver,mental health,addictions,trauma,abuse,

The conscious and the subconscious mind can make a great team if you used them together. The first can handle some tasks then assigns them to the second while the second can send feedback and messages about the task in the form of emotions to the first.
 

Emotions are no more than messages sent by your subconscious mind in order to notify you about something.
 

By learning how to make the best use of the cooperation between your conscious and subconscious mind your life skills will improve and you will have much more control over your emotions.
