Conscious and subconscious Mind



Conscious - Subconscious Mind
Conscious mind is that part of your mind that is responsible for:
 1) Analyzes,
2) Thinks and plans
3) Short term memories.
Suppose if I ask you about the sum of 5 plus 5 it’s your conscious mind that is going to be used to make the calculations. The conscious mind not only perform logical calculations but also control all the actions that you do intentionally  while being conscious. For example: when you decide to take any action like moving from one seat to another it’s is done by conscious mind.
The conscious mind is also known as the gate keeper of your mind suppose someone tried to present you with a belief that doesn’t match your belief system your conscious mind will filter that belief. Like someone called you ‘dull’ than your conscious mind will come into play and filter this statement and let you realize that you are not really ‘dull’.
On the flip side subconscious mind  is that part of your body which is responsible for all of your unintentional actions. Your breathing rate and heart beats are controlled by subconscious mind. Subconscious mind is also responsible for:
1)    Long term memories
2)   Emotions and feelings
3)   Habits patters, relationship patters, addictions
4)   Unintentional bodily actions
5)   Developmental stage
6)   Spiritual connections
7)   Intuitions
Suppose , you start to control your breath on intention then know that your conscious mind took in charge while if you were breathing without being conscious of the breathing process your subconscious mind was in charge.
Emotions and feelings are also controlled by subconscious mind. That’s why sometimes you feel anxious, or down without wanting to experience such feeling. Subconscious mind is also store house for beliefs and memories our customs and traditions are all part of subconscious mind and stored in it forever we do not learn them often.

How you can find difference between then
Find yourself quiet place to sit. Turn off your phone and dim all lights. This is your time. A time for total relaxation and inner stillness. Take a moment to make sure that you are warm enough, and that you are seated comfortably. Rest your hands loosely in your lap or over knees. Now close your eyes, take long but slow deep breath hold it for a moment and exhale…. Take such 3 – 4 long in-out breaths, this will calm your mind and outer sounds will automatically get lower in volume. Here you are keeping account of your breath while taking long in-out breaths, which means your conscious mind is in charge after few rounds let your breath take place at it’s normal pace without keeping account of in-out action here your subconscious mind take in charge.
