How The Conscious and Subconscious Mind Influences Your Thoughts

The human psyche is one of the most powerful embodiments we possess. We have a conscious mind that is in the now, that has witnessed past consequences of our actions and one that will witness future actions. Over and above an active conscious mind we have a powerful subconscious mind that influences our lives in ways we could not even begin to comprehend.

brain-744207_640Understanding how the conscious and subconscious mind works will be the beginning of a transformation in your life. You have probably heard many times the power of thoughts and that thoughts become things. You have heard that what we think about dominantly manifests. You have probably witnessed it in your own life and can thus attest to the power of thoughts.

Have your thoughts yielded you the results you have been thinking about all too strongly?

Can you attest to the power of thoughts in your life?

To understand how thoughts work – especially dominant thoughts – you must understand how your conscious and subconscious mind works. The conscious mind is your ‘visible’ mind force, to put it that way. It is the mind you are aware of when you think of a thought. When you are actively processing a thought in your mind you are using your conscious mind.  When you think, “let me get myself a cup of tea,” your conscious mind is active and you are aware of your thought.

What of the subconscious mind, you wonder?

The subconscious mind is the powerful invisible mind force beneath your conscious mind. This is the force that works actively when your conscious mind is at rest. Typically it works when you are asleep. This is the mind that absorbs all that you tell your conscious mind and it processes that information as true according to your beliefs with respect to that information.

The subconscious mind is a powerful force that takes action to the dominant thoughts your conscious mind churns by moving mountains to making sure they happen. It is like a force that cannot be easily defined but one that is present in all of us.

Just think to yourself why is it that when you strongly believe about something, it will manifest in your life. The subconscious mind makes sure that the thoughts that you think about the most come to life. With such a powerful revelation, how can we make use of our conscious and subconscious minds to get that which we desire?

The Power of Repetition

The power of repetition has been known to be one of the most effective methods to use to get that which we desire. How do you learn a subject until you are the best in that subject? You guessed it, repetition. Repetition has the power of setting firm foundations and planting seeds for sowing at a later stage. No great athlete, speaker, professional, etc., has ever excelled without constant practice and repetition. It works. Repetition is how the human mind reinforces systems and beliefs.

If you want to be successful at your craft, you must repeat your desires to your conscious mind, which will in turn be reinforced in your subconscious mind. The subconscious mind cannot work on its own. It needs the strength of your conscious mind to channel your thoughts.

To get what you desire in life you must make positive affirmations to your conscious mind. It has been noted that before you sleep and just after you wake up, you must reinforce your affirmations in your mind. Before you sleep is usually preferable because that is when your subconscious mind works overtime to make your desires a reality.

Make a repetition of your affirmations and they, in turn, will manifest before your eyes.

The Power of Belief

Nothing can substitute the power of belief. If you believe in something with every fibre of your being, it will manifest. If you believe that you will be successful, you will be. If you believe that you are destined for greatness, you will be. If you conversely believe that you are doomed, you will be. The power of belief should never be underestimated.

Reinforcing belief in your conscious and subconscious minds will get you your desires. As discussed above, the power of repetition stamps your thoughts firmly in place. The power of belief anchors them further into your subconscious mind. You probably have noticed throughout certain periods in your life where you felt more confident, more positive, that your thoughts had led you to achieve more than you thought possible.

Believing puts you in a unique position to align your thoughts to work with you and for you. While your conscious mind reads your thoughts out loud, your subconscious mind records them and  stores them in a file and when the time is right moves mountains to see them manifest.

Making the power of belief your friend will put you in a place where you find yourself achieving your dreams because you believe in them and you reinforce them in your active and inactive minds.

The Power of Positive Thoughts

The power of positive thoughts is what will take you far in life. Believing in your thoughts and repeating them in your mind will not be enough if they are not being supported by powerful positive thinking. In life you can either think positive thoughts or negative thoughts. If you want to progress in life to achieve significant success then you must have positive thought processes.

When you say, ‘’Yes I can!’’ and affirm it you are in fact telling your mind that you believe in yourself so profoundly that nothing but positivity must flow in your life. Think of any time when you have been positive about the outcome of an endeavour in your life and you had consequently seen the manifestation of your positive thoughts. Thoughts truly become things. What you feed your mind matters much more than you could ever imagine.

It should of course be said that we occasionally fall into a slippery slope of negativity where we are thinking of one negative thought after the next. When that happens we find ourselves sinking into sadness and we find that nothing goes right in our day. When you can see that happening with you, you must quickly re-channel and instead fill your mind with positive thoughts.

You must remember that in life we were meant to have positive influences on others more than negative influence. Positive thoughts build us. Every time you catch yourself falling into a negative abyss, bring yourself back by pumping positive thoughts into your mind.


The conscious and subconscious minds play an important role in influencing our thoughts. All that you are today is because of the thoughts you have had up to date. All that you will be will be because of the thoughts you have today.

If you want to be a better person tomorrow have better thoughts today. Thoughts are like seeds, once planted they need an environment to grow in. Make sure your environment is a positive fertile environment that has plenty of room for growth.

Treat your conscious and subconscious minds with respect and your life will be changed in ways you never imagined possible.
