The conditions you are experiencing in your life now are the contents in your subconscious mind pushed out.
If you could turn your subconscious mind inside out, what do you get? You get reflections that matches your current conditions. Man lives in his subconscious mind, which is his Subjective Reality.
If a man’s subconscious mind believes in Lack, he can only perceive and experience Lack in his outer world. If he is experiencing abundance and wealth, it means his subconscious thoughts are those of abundance and wealth at the moment. The study of New Thought and Metaphysics revealed to us that we can change our conditions by changing our powerful subconscious mind.
The subconscious is our Inner World. Our Outer World is a projection that matches our Internal World. Our physical actions to change our External World are futile, unless we first change our Inner World. Right actions that produce results are actually inspired subconsciously.
The subconscious is power, the conscious is direction. In ancient times, the subconscious is called The Female Aspect, while the conscious is The Male Aspect. The female appears weak, but inwardly she is enduring and powerful. She has the power of influence over the actions of men. The female symbol is water – soft, adapting to its surrounding, yet the ocean and rivers are powerful forces that can submerge the entire world.
The male appears strong, but inwardly he is quick to change his mind and direction. The male symbol is Fire. The male must make his own decision and then slowly persuade and influence the woman into a decision. Likewise, the Conscious Mind must make a new decision to create new thoughts, in order to influence the Subconscious to change. It is said, the male’s drive for power and success is so that he can please the female. The male symbol is fire. Fire is quick to start and spread, but can also be wiped out quickly, especially by water. Fire can heat up water, but it takes persistence and time. Likewise, to influence our subconscious is like the male trying to win over the female. He must do so by gentle persuasion, consistency and persistence. A man changes his decision quickly, but when a woman is finally influenced, she is slow to change her mind.
There are plenty of symbology for the subconscious mind. The biblical flood is a symbology of the flood of facts. The subconscious (female aspect) which symbol is water, has the power to flood your world with facts. We are submerged by facts (which we call “conditions” or “reality”) once it is set in motion. Once you are in the flood, you can only take inventory of your thoughts, keep the good ones alive in a place with 3 decks (the Ark). The 3 decks are the Spiritual, Psychological and Physical of our Being. Once the flood subsides, you are then able to create your world anew.

An iceberg is a good metaphor of our Mind. More than 80% of the iceberg is under the surface of water. We have a Conscious part of the Mind and a Subconscious part. They are not 2 different minds per se, but different functions of the One Mind that we have. Our Conscious Mind(logical mind) is the part of the iceberg that is above water, while a much bigger function/part of our mind- our Subconscious Mind, is submerged. The subconscious is submerged because its capabilities, potentials and functionings are carried out at an unconscious level. Not only that, our Subconscious has vast powers that we could never imagine.
The Conscious Mind is the part of our mind that is doing the logical present moment thinking and analysis. We are aware of the present moment and we think with our Conscious Mind.
The Subconsious Mind on the other hand is whatever thoughts, information, memory, emotions in our mind that we are not consciously aware of at this moment. Many authors and researchers like to think of our Subconscious mind as the storehouse of our mind. Every experience, thoughts and emotions that we ever had is stored in there in the form of subconscious memory. The Subconscious also keeps our heart beating, blinks our eyelids, make us salivate, make us sweat, and controls all other bodily functions that we do not need to think of.
In reality, there is a faint line of distinction between using our conscious and subconscious mind. Riding a bicycle may seem like a conscious act, but the automatic balancing of the bicycle is in fact a subconscious automated reaction gained from past experience and learning. But when you press the brakes to stop at the lights, that is conscious reaction. Unless if you reacted by impulse, it is then a subconscious impulse.
How does information and learning get stored into the subconscious? The subconscious stores by repetition and emotion. The higher the intensity of the emotion (either good or bad), the stronger the impression of the accompanied thought.
Our Subconscious Mind is somewhat like a manager, a very good one at that. Yet aside from keeping our bodily functions running, it has no discretion and direction of its own in terms of what you want to achieve in life. It takes commands from your Conscious Logical Mind, which is the Decision Maker.
In future blog entries, I will relate several experiences of mine where I used my Subconscious to find lost objects, get job offers, make money and achieving goals.
