How the subconscious mind works
The subconscious responds to habit and habitual thinking. The subconscious mind accepts any thought that is given by the conscious mind. Its neutral in nature and cannot distinguish between a good and a bad thought. The only language it understands in the form of images and emotions. In this book , The author has mentioned that if a person can get answers to his prayers if it is done in a scientific way and not in a religious way(for e.g. By wishing, hope which involves no faith).
For the subconscious mind to work , the conscious mind has to be in relaxed state and one has do visualization with the positive mental belief of receiving answers to their prayers in acceptance.
The Subconscious Mind Has The Answer To All Your Problems. The author mentions that if a person is facing any difficulty or problems in his life, then he can pose the question to his subconscious mind and wait for the answer to come. Because the subconscious mind is working continuously on the problem that you have submitted, so when the conscious mind is busy working on other things, the answer will eventually show up.
Any illness, pain or body ailments can be cured by continuously submitting thoughts of healing through the infinite intelligence of the subconscious mind. For this healing to cure the body , Faith is needed.
Any idea to be imprinted on the subconscious mind can only be done by the presenting positive thoughts and images. The subconscious mind cannot be forced to accept any idea by will power.
Your outward world is directly related to the thought that is there in your subconscious mind. Most of the time our goals set by the conscious mind ie rational mind is sabotaged by the subconscious mind if it is filled with a negative thought pattern. The only way to change your reality is to break the negative thought patterns in your subconscious mind and fill it with positive one. For this there should be no coercion between the conscious and sub conscious mind.
Understanding your subconscious mind as a photographic mechanism removes the emotion and struggle from changing your life, because if it is simply a matter of replacing existing mental images with new ones, you begin to see the ease with which you may change.
The author says that ‘The law of your mind is the law of belief itself’.. What we believe makes us who we are. This belief system is based on the thoughts of the subconscious mind.
I have read this book personally and I liked it and would like to recommend this to all. If you give 5-10 minutes of your time everyday out of 24 hrs.just before going to sleep, you will definitely see positive results within week’s time. But you need to have patience and trust your subconscious mind which is the inner wisdom with the answers that is shown.
