“Whatever we plant in our subconscious mind and nourish with repetition and emotion will one day become a reality” — Earl Nightingale
When talking about the brain it’s not uncommon to hear about conscious, Subconscious and Unconscious mind. But Before starting the blog I want to discuss the three levels of mind models, Yes you heard me right.
Three-level mind model
Conscious: Related to all the thoughts and actions within our awareness. Our conscious mind include things like sensation, perception, memories, feeling and fantasies inside of our current awareness.
For Example: The beauty and pleasant smell of flowers.
Subconscious – defines all reactions and automatic actions we can become aware of if we think about them.
Right now you’re primarily using your conscious mind to read these words and absorb their meaning, but beneath that mental focus, your subconscious mind is busily working behind the scenes, absorbing or rejecting information based on an existing perception you have of the world around you.
The function of your subconscious mind is to store and retrieve data. Its job is to ensure that you respond exactly the way you are programmed.
- For example, our ability to drive a car: once we get skilled we stop thinking which gears to use, which pedals to press, or which mirror to look at, yet can always become aware of what was done once we think about it.
Your subconscious mind makes everything you say and do fit a pattern consistent.
This is why repeating positive affirmations are so effective―you can actually reprogram your own thought patterns by slipping in positive and success-oriented sound bites.
Unconscious – defines all past events and memories,
- Though at times inaccessible to us no matter how hard we try to remember to bring things up.
- For example, the first word we’ve learned to say, or how it felt to be able to walk on our own.
- When you make a gesture automatically without thinking about it, this is an example of an unconscious gesture.
