Cultivating the Subconscious Mind
by Hakeem Alexander | on March 12, 2013
Growing within your subconscious mind are all the seeds of thought
which have been planted by way of the conscious mind. Those seeds of
thought when allowed to thrive become the trees of your personality that
stem out into the branches of your various behaviors.
attention upon any thought is like tending to that seed and giving it
food to grow stronger. Energy flows wherever your attention goes. And the food for thoughts are your attentions. This energy strengthens whatever thoughts you focus your attention on. This is true whether you are aware of it or not.
you already understand from this explanation that you can strengthen
the thoughts and behaviors that you desire to be expressed by giving
more attention to them. So that if you want to be more confident, you
would focus on being more confident. You would focus on the events when you were most confident.
the same time, while you keep your attention away from the thoughts and
behaviors that you DO NOT wish to express, those unwanted qualities are
then slowly starved of the energy that they would be using to grow.
Instead they fade away while the best parts of you become stronger because of the direction of your attention.
of the extreme difficulty that is sometimes experienced when you are
attempting to make changes in thought and behavior, it appears that the
subconscious mind has about 5-million times more power to influence your thoughts and behavior than your conscious mind does.
