The Soul and the Subconscious/Conscious Mind

by Rasheeda Loves 4 years ago in psychology / spirituality

Sometimes, you need to unlearn most that of what you have been taught, in order learn the reality and how to become at one.

What does being at oneness mean to you?

It is crazy but I have this theory or this belief if you call it, that we are all souls/energies in a physical form. But the secret to you truly living, living out your real and honest desires, becoming your greatest version, is to become at one with who you are! The first step is identifying that you are a soul in a physical form. Souls in a physical form you say...

Let me explain; I believe that before you were all put on earth, each and every one of you was given a purpose a mission, something to do during your time on earth. But during one leaving the heavens and being given life into this new world, you lose who you were actually called to be. You came into a world filled with lies, distractions, deceit and so much more. If you are not yet awake (Sub consciously/Spiritually), without knowing it, you live in a cycle. A cycle that can lead to the road of nowhere if you do not wake up on time.

"Only one who devotes himself to a cause with his whole strength and soul can be a true master. For this reason mastery demands all of a person." - Albert Einstein

The soul is the spiritual nature of humankind. It is the divine essence of humankind. In life, it is attributed with the powers of thoughts, actions, and emotions. The soul is the essence of YOU, deciding how you behave and this essence is an eternal part of your being.It is made up of the mind, emotions, and desires. The idea of souls existing is more closely connected to spirituality and religion.

“Inside us there is something that has no name, that something is what we are.” ― José Saramago, Blindness

The mind is the focal point of the soul and the fundamental of the spiritual body. Distinctly, different areas in the mind commands will, emotion, intellect, and reasoning. Running through the body, from the stomach, the heart, and the brain, they are the parts that control spiritual wisdom and it connects the person with their souls in the spiritual world, in other words, the subconscious.

Furthermore, I do not know how many people believe that there are two of you in one body. and NO! I am not talking about good and evil, but I am talking about You and the Sub-Conscious you. Your soul, as some may know it. You wake up every day, go to work, do the same routine you are used to, what the body and your TRAINED MIND is used to. Nonetheless, have you ever taken a moment to just PAUSE, STOP and be STILL? Be still and take in everything. Take in the people that walk past you, sit next to you on the bus, stand opposite you at the supermarket. Have you taken a minute to just stop and not think with your logical but your imagination? Your subconscious.

The subconscious mind is like a huge memory bank, it is the hard drive to your life. The capacity is unlimited. Your subconscious is permanently storing data, everything that has happened to you up until now, including past experiences and lives. You might be eager to know more about how past lives and experiences impacts you and your present. For example, habits, what/things you are drawn to, more than anything it can explain certain parts of your character/s. However, stay tuned, I will be writing a more in depth post on that soon. Back to the subconscious mind, its purpose is to store and retrieve data. Brian Tracy stated that,

"Our subconscious mind is an unquestioning servant that works day and night to make your behaviour fits a pattern consistent with your emotionalised thoughts, hopes, and desires. Your subconscious mind grows either flowers or weeds in the garden of your life, whichever you plant by the mental equivalents you create."

How the subconscious mind works is through constant communication. The unconscious repeatedly communicates with the conscious mind via our subconscious. A lot of communication is going on within you without you even being aware. The brain/mind is beyond phenomenal. The communications that happen between the unconscious, conscious and the subconscious is what gives us the meaning to all our interactions with the world. It is communications through your feelings, emotions, imagination, sensations, and dreams.

Your conscious mind only allows you to take in the basics. It only allows you to see and feel a fragment of the world. A bit like an iceberg where only a fraction of it is showing above water. Being awake means you are conscious of your surroundings. When you arein-tune with yourself, you will realise how powerful the subconscious is.The subconscious has a stronger sense of awareness than the conscious mind. Some see the subconscious as the "fight or flight" mode. Whilst, to the contrast, some may know the subconscious as the "6th sense." Always switched on and alert, even whilst you may be asleep. It is always working.

The mind is phenomenal! It literally has the power to imagine something that may be new to you. Perhaps thought to be new to your unaware mind. It has the power to imagine things you believe you may have never experienced or witnessed. Contrary, the subconscious, it only offers you a version of the memory it has stored from past experiences. Do you see how the subconscious plays a huge part in your visualisation/imagination? It literally remembers everything, the things you choose not to and things that may have happened so long ago, or maybe just be unaware of. As humans, we are blessed with amazing gifts!

In life, you are taught so many things. How to write, read, and eventually succeed. Now, those are not bad things. But what is truly being missed out on, is being taught how to learn more about yourself. Identify who you really are, not just in the physical but in totality. Being in tune with all that you are is already going to lead you down the road of success. The secret to living to your full potential in this life is to learn about yourself, unlearn all the irrelevant. Learn the new, learn about what/who you are, dig deeper into the inner you to grasp why you are the way you are, what past experiences could be affecting you and how to mentally deliver yourself.

What you need to do from today henceforth, is learn to be at one with yourself. Being at one with yourself means being at oneness. Understanding your mind, soul and what energies you are transferring and receiving. Learning to protect your energy/energies is extremely important. Your energy influences what you attract, laws of attraction. It may even mean retraining your mind completely, training your thoughts, making them turn more positive, in return you attract who you become. By being in charge of your thoughts, by being able to redirect your thoughts, focus on visualising (goodness, positive things, what you desire), you can influence what programs the subconscious mind. By doing this often with the help of channeling the right emotional energies, your mind/thoughts start to reprogram your unconscious internal representation, of who you are as well as your beliefs.

Remember, by understanding your soul, changing your thoughts; how you think and channeling your energy into this change. It will only allow you to see and experience a change like never before and view yourself on a more deeper level.

“It's worth making time to find the things that really stir your soul. That’s what makes you really feel alive. You have to say ‘no’ to other things you’re used to, and do it with all your heart.”― Roy T. Bennett
