I love the study of the mind and how it affects our behavior, and I enjoy having conversations with my sister, (who is studying to be a psychologist) on how the human mind works. The most powerful part of the mind is the subconscious mind, also known as the unconscious mind. It fascinates me, and scares me at the same time to know that I’m running on a program of habits and passed experiences. The subconscious mind is the habit mind, and we use that mind 95% of the time. As a result, our conscious mind influences our perception only 5% of the time. I discovered this short video that gives you a great explanation on the unconscious mind. The video features Dr. Bruce Lipton, a recognized leader in bridging science and spirit. Dr. Lipton is a stem cell biologist and author of ‘The Biology of Belief’.
You might be wondering why on earth should you care about the subconscious mind, but learning about the subconscious mind is the most important piece of information to empower your life. The subconscious mind is powerful beyond measure, and can lead you to a prosperous life, or can totally sabotage you. It’s up to you be aware of your programming, and rewrite it.
This video is a lot to digest, but I hope it forces you to look within to get to the bottom of what drives your behavior. When I conducted my introspection, I discovered conditioned behaviors that date back to my childhood. I was shocked, I had no idea that so many situations had affected me the way it did, and played a huge part in my development. Through this awareness I have been able to course correct, and condition myself for success.
