First of all, your brain is amazing. And I’m not just saying that to be nice.  

Today’s scientific advancements enable us to observe the amazing activities happening in the brain that connect our conscious and subconscious minds — and the way they drive human behavior

Surely, you’ve heard:  

The mind is everything. What you think you become.” – Buddha

You become what you think about all day long” – Ralph Waldo Emerson

…But have you stopped to think about why they’re true? Or the power they hold for you? Let’s talk a little bit about your subconscious mind. Then you’ll learn how you can harness its power to create success in your life. 

Your subconscious mind guides each major activity in your life that you do without thinking. It guides your breathing, your heart beating, walking, digestion and metabolization of the food you eat. 

Your subconscious mind is also connected to the parts of your brain that process emotions, feelings, and memories. The limbic system helps regulate your body using thoughts, feelings, and memories – without thinking. Harken to “Keep away from the tiger,” from our early human days.

But because the limbic system doesn’t process language, there are times when you react to feelings you have inside, feelings you don’t have words to describe, and feelings you may not be consciously creating but unconsciously feeding

Your subconscious mind will determine whether your inspiration flourishes or withers; it can become either fertile or barren soil to grow your dreams.

Just as your conscious mind can be thought of as the gardener, planting seeds, your subconscious mind can be thought of as the garden, or fertile soil, in which the seeds germinate and grow. So harnessing the power of your subconscious mind is essential to the foundation of your entire thought process and, ultimately, your success!
