The Subconscious Mind: Giving Thanks For Our Roots
This past weekend was one of my favorites because I got to spend time reflecting upon those who’ve helped to make my life so great, my mother and my grandma. In addition to honoring these inspiring women on Mother’s Day, it was a great time to reflect, send blessings and prayers of gratitude out to all the women who have existed before me to bring my life into existence.
While it is important to reflect upon all the women in our family and extend thoughts of gratitude out towards our mothers, grandmothers and those powerful women who have came before us, it is just as important to extend appreciation towards the Mother Earth that provides an abundant place for all reside. In doing this, we acknowledging the divine order that is ever-present.
As I reflected this Mother’s Day there was one area I felt I should embrace a little more, the part of us that receives our conscious thoughts and assist in birthing forth our reality.
With that being said, I’d like to dedicate this post to the sacredness of the subconscious, the part of us that births forth our reality.
What is the Subconscious Mind
As many may be well aware, they are constantly thinking something.
At times this is a conscious stream of thoughts, for most of us, we can go a whole day, even week, being conscious of only a few thoughts floating through our minds.
Each conscious or unconscious thought is sent down to the subconscious mind that does not think, but receives what the thinker is thinking.
This subconscious mind receives whatever the conscious (thinking mind) is impressing in it. With this understanding, if a thought is repeated again and again the subconscious mind becomes impregnated by this thought and ultimately births forth an outer experience (whether good or bad).
As I reflected upon this over the Mother’s Day weekend I understood that the subconscious mind is of feminine energy because it is the part of us that births forth our experience.
With that being said, if you look at your life today, what are the experiences that fill it?
What conscious or unconscious thoughts have created what you are experiencing today?
If you began to think differently how would your experience change?
Treat your subconscious mind with the utmost respect. As important as Mother Earth is to your grandmother and your mother is to you, so is your subconscious to your experience of life.
3 Keys To Impress The Subconscious Mind With Positivity
1 – Awareness of Thought – Be aware of the thoughts you think on a daily basis. Act as if the thoughts you think day in and day out will be brought into your experience immediately. Think only what you’d like to see in your life. Be willing to cancel negative thoughts for positive ones. Most importantly, remember you are the thinker in your life and can think anyway you desire.
2 – Eternally Empowered – Some may have a difficult time shifting their thoughts from of the murkiness of yesterday towards positive thoughts today. If you find yourself in this predicament then draw closer to your spiritual practice and remember that you are eternally empowered by Source. You are that which thinks, not that which is thought upon. With this sense of awareness, you can shift your conscious thoughts in the snap of a finger. As you do this, you shift what your subconscious mind is helping to bring forth.
3 – The Solution – Embracing your ability to direct your thoughts, understanding that you are empowered by Source, you realize you are the solution you’ve been seeking. In fact, there is nothing more we could ask for that could make us more than what we actually are. This is an inspiring insight when we see that a shift in thought can take us from our own worst enemy to our greatest friend or elevate us above fear and doubt towards confidence and courage. One important thing to remember is all of this can only happen in this present moment of now.
Opportunity of the Week
Extend thoughts of gratitude, love, appreciation, forgiveness and compassion towards your mother, grandmother and all the women who’ve helped make you you. It matters not whether they are here with us or transitioned, a thought transcends all boundaries.
This week, think consciously by being centered and aware of this present moment of now. Whenever your thoughts begin to slip, reconnect with your breath and remember you are that which empowers your thoughts to exist. As you do this, simply be still and know that wherever you are the entire universe is there with you.
This week, think that which you’d like to birth into your life, embrace the sacredness of the subconscious.
Peace. Happiness. Compassion. Respect.
