I shall now continue with my earlier post about sub-conscious mind. The sub-conscious mind , though hidden from the human conscious mind, does make it’s presence felt occasionally in our lives.
How many times you have experienced that you think about a person, a long lost friend or maybe some work colleague who you haven’t talked to in a long time and you get a phone call almost immediately. Isn’t it amazing that someone whom you weren’t in touch for such a long time should call you at the exact moment that you have thought about that person. It isn’t mere coincidence. The most interesting part is that if you make a conscious effort to remember that person and wish that he or she will call you or remember you, it never happens. So what is happening here? The subconscious mind which is at all times in synchronicity with the Universe – the Super conscious, sends a signal to the sub-conscious mind of your long lost friend or colleague. Their sub-conscious mind picks up your signal and creates an urge within them to get in touch with you. And voila, out of the blue you get your phone call! Since the same effect is not observed when we are using the conscious mind, the conclusion is obvious that the subconscious mind is using a channel which is not linked in any way to the conscious world. This channel has been instrumental in fulfilling a human being’s most deep rooted desire. Have you ever noticed that this effect is much more pronounced when a person is remembered together by a group. Inevitably, whenever I meet my college friends and discuss about some old friend, out of the blue we get his call. Again, the reason is obvious. Instead of one subconscious mind, when several subconscious minds send the signal of remembrance to another subconscious mind, there is a resonance resulting in stronger and faster urge for getting in touch.
Have you read the best selling book by Rhonda Byrne “The Secret”?The book talks about the power of the “Law of Attraction” . According to the law of attraction, we attract into our lives whatever we wish for and think about. As told by Paulo Coelho in his path breaking novel “The Alchemist”- when you really desire for something, the whole Universe conspires to make it happen for you. It is a very simple and powerful concept. In life, we attract what we think about. However, according to me, “The Secret” failed to differentiate between desires and thoughts. Rhonda Byrne assumed that whatever mind desires, it thinks about the same. However, desires may be conscious as well as subconscious . Rhonda Byrne failed to differentiate between the two. Another very important area in which her book has failed is it’s inability to differentiate between the conscious mind and sub-conscious mind. People have told me that they religiously follow the tenets given in her book regarding the law of attraction. Yet it has failed to make an impact in their lives. If one understands the “Frame of Human Existence” , the reason for this failure is self-evident. The failure is not because people are not using the law of attraction as given in the book. The failure is because they are not using the power of sub-conscious mind in applying the law of attraction. Using the conscious mind will not activate the law of attraction in your life. You need to use the sub-conscious mind for unleashing the powerful forces of the law of attraction in your life. And that is why I say that Rhonda Byrne has erred by not differentiating between the conscious and subconscious desires. Unless you are a person who has a highly developed understanding of the sub-conscious mind and which you have trained and perfected by repeatedly meditating and synchronizing your sub-conscious with the Super-conscious, you have no way of controlling the execution of attainment of your desires. You need to reach at the core of your soul to set the law of attraction into motion. Like the churner which churns the buttermilk at the very bottom to whip out the butter from it, the fulfillment of desires will only come by touching the core of your existence – the subconscious mind! Using the conscious mind for utilizing the law of attraction is like skimming the surface without touching at the core.
Can we get access to the sub-conscious mind?
This is a question which we will discuss in the next post.
