I suppose it would do us good to first answer the question what is your mind? The mind has three parts: the conscious (ego), the subconscious (soul), and the unconscious. Today we will focus on the conscious and the subconscious.
The conscious mind is responsible for logic and reasoning; it controls your intentional actions. It’s the “thinking” part of your brain. The conscious mind also has a dark side, the ego, that can never be satisfied. It always wants more, even if more of what you want is dangerous and harmful. Unhappiness, pain and misery are human reactions created by the ego. The ego is noisy and weak. The only way to quiet the restless ego is to harness the power of the subconscious.
The subconscious mind is quiet and strong. It’s where your beliefs reside, and your beliefs are so much stronger than your thoughts.
So why is all this important? Why do we want to control our ego? Because living in the power of your subconscious will bring you limitless joy! There is nothing that is impossible if your soul desires it.
OK! Yes please! Sign me up! How do I get control of my egotistical conscious mind!?
I wish that were an easy question to answer. The conscious ego mind is louder than the subconscious so it confuses us. It loves to get offended and feel wounded, it thrives on pain and conflict. When we recognize this is happening and switch over to a place of love and joy we take away the egos power.
Who’s in Charge?
Here’s your challenge: Over the next 7 days, notice how often your ego is speaking to you. An easy way to notice this is as a thought or statement that begins with “I“. I drive a _________, I deserve _________, I’m a great ___________(person, friend, parent), I don’t think he’s good enough for her, etc. Although all of these statements might be true statements, these are just labels we have put on ourselves that are coming from the ego. They do not serve us, they are not who we really are. Pay attention how often you get offended or feel the NEED to be right.
Discovering how to tap into your subconscious mind will open you up to endless possibilities!
