Conscious vs Subconscious Mind
To know the working of affirmations you must understand the working of our mind. Mainly our mainly divided in to two – conscious and subconscious, under subconscious there is unconscious mind too but that is not at all accessible to us from the outside world. Conscious mind is like a gatekeeper and check all information coming through our senses. It’s duty is to check the authenticity of the data an then it pass to the subconscious mind. It is million times more powerful and is a big storage space too. It writes the data to it’s memory and these data becomes part of us. Our entire things based on these data like attitude, behavior, emotions, habits, addictions, emotions etc. It is actually like our operating system.
How Affirmations Work ? What is Subconscious Mind Programming ?
Problem is most of the data in subconscious mind outdated and mostly written during our childhood period. In childhood period our brain mostly in the theta state and that the frequency of the subconscious. So continuous updation happens during that period. After that we go to theta only very rarely mostly while just after waking up and just before sleep. So not much updation after 6-7 years of age. After that period updation is mainly possible through affirmations. When we are active conscious mind does not allow to access the subconscious. It cross check the data and reject if it found illogical. But when we use affirmation or repeat same sentence many times some times it may skip the conscious and enter the subconscious. There no logical processing so it will directly go to the memory. Then that will become part of you.
