Your Subconscious Mind
“Our conscious mind thinks it’s in control, but it isn’t. Our subconscious mind doesn’t think about anything, but is in control.” ~ Jen Sincero.
Argh, it’s infuriating but true. We’re controlled by the deep, subconscious ocean of our minds.
What is that? Well, I only studied an A Level in psychology, so I’m hardly qualified to answer this, except to say it’s a tonne of information floating around in your ‘head’.
It was mostly put there by whoever raised you – their well-meaning attempts to educate, protect and love you may have been less than helpful, but for most of us, there’s not much point blaming them. After all, they were controlled by their own subconscious minds and were doing their best.
Plus ‘society’ added a hefty dose of stuff to your subconscious too. Again, not much use in getting caught up in blaming them either – at least for now, we’re focusing on you. Later, you can go out and reshape society, okay?
