Intuitively we have a vague understanding of what the power of the subconscious mind is. The trouble is we choose to fight it at every turn. Instead we favour a life that is familiar, something that we don’t have to work at, or something that does not make us feel uncomfortable.
Stepping out into the power of the subconscious mind is like choosing the red pill, in the movie the matrix. In fact I have heard it said somewhere that if you are still suffering you are still living in the matrix. And by suffering I mean, sad, angry, depressed, stressed, or full of anxieties, unaware of self….., then you are caught in the matrix. For many of us myself included, like neo in the movie taking the red pill resulted in the most difficult journey of truth in his life. But the result was self empowerment, love, peace and beyond.
The potential of the subconscious mind
I have talked about this in my blog elsewhere. To unleash the true power of the mind requires letting go of blockages or “baggage” as the world likes to put it. Forgiveness and acceptance is a crucial and powerful tool in this regard. On the face of it may sound like blah, but how many of us have been held captive by fear, anger, hatred, or a critical nature. These are powerful negative emotions that keep us in bondage. In bondage meaning in servitude to a controlling force. Relinquishing ourselves from this force allows us to more readily come into the present moment. Were we meant to see the present moment as a gift(present)? Was that meant to be the biggest clue to achieving our divine nature? I believe so. On a personal level, meditative practice has taken me from strength to strength. It has improved my mental clarity, self awareness and brought me more joy and better intuitness. Yet I know there are far greater heights for us all to scale.
The problem of letting go, recognising we think too much
Not relating to the lack of forgiveness and acceptance Proposition? Do you ever feel that you dont have enough time, enough money, a good enough figure, a better intellect. Most of us are in a mental conflict, we are forever thinking, forever analysing past events. We satisfy boredom by switching to endless activities that create entertainment but do not allow ourselves to simply be still. Because that would lead to more thought we subconciously want to avoid. What if we could suspend the mind from this busy body exhaustive worry and circling thought patterns. The answer is we gain freedom. We step outside of our individual matrix or self made illusion of the mind and into true reality. But not without the fight. We are creatures of habit that are happy to accept more of the same. The mind is great for solving problems, but after a problem has been resolved it should at once come to rest. Our minds should not be like an electrified windmill, ever turning without pause. It would be funny if it were not so serious!
What we gain from the power of the subconscious mind
Quote Morpheus Laurence fishbourne in the movie the matrix
“The matrix is a system neo, that system is our enemy. But when you are inside, you look around, what do you see? Businessmen, lawyers, teachers, carpenters. The very minds of the people we are trying to save. But until we do, these people are still part of that system and that makes them your enemy. You have to understand, most of these people are not ready to be unplugged. And many of them so inured so hopelessly dependant on the system, that they will fight to protect it.”
That matrix is our personal recursive thought pattern unique to each one of us and dependant on our history, experience and upbringing(including prejudices). And then there are group and cultural systems of thought that we have subconciously bought into. How many of these “systems of thought” are the truth. Could freeing ourselves from many of them improve our inner and then outer world.
[Edit: In other words the Matrix can also be thought of as our needless collective pain and suffering viewed from the “above”/with consciousness. Remember the scene in the movie where all humans are shown in their separate cubicles allowing the machine to feed off every one of us. This machine can be viewed either as evil or as collective unconciousness]
The power of the subconscious mind and meditation
When we grasp the ability to live on the present through meditative practice, the benefits are beautiful. There is a natural alignment with life itself, less friction. There is a natural peace, alertness and calm. It’s that best feeling you get whilst still on a “high” after a great holiday.
It is not a drug induced feeling of taking the happy pill like Prozac but it is similar. I know I have taken Prozac in my past. Initially it gave me confidence and alertness like I had never felt before. But after a while the effects wore off. I guess my body was too used to it or my pain had become deeper. Meditative practice trains the mind in an indirect fashion. It forces the mind and the ego to take second place, serving your needs in a healthy beautiful way.
It’s power is unique to the individual that welds it. It is something that needs to be experienced, even tasted by you before you can actually know it. Very few can say that they have mastered it. But all who have tasted it don’t want to lose it. They aim for an ever more deeper, special relationship with the universe and self. I highly recommend it.
In short there is only one manifestation program todate worthy of consideration
