Do I Really Have 2 Minds or Am I Just Going Crazy?

Blog

Apr 11

Do you ever wonder why it seems so hard to get yourself to do the things you need to do to succeed? Or why it’s so hard to change a bad habit? It almost seems like there’s another one of “me” that wants to do things their way instead of doing what I want to do, right?

As we start working on our mindset it is important to understand the mind and how it works. In order to use the mind correctly, you must understand the relationship between the conscious and the subconscious. They are not really two minds; they are two phases of your mind that serve different functions.

The conscious mind is creative. It is personal and selective and reasons inductively. This means that it compares facts, data, statistics, and all types of information in order to arrive at its conclusions as to what is “true.”

The subconscious mind is impersonal and non-selective.  It only reasons deductively, which means it never takes into account the truth or falseness of any information but always functions on the premise that the suggestion it receives from the conscious mind or a trusted authority is correct, and then proceeds to produce results that are congruent with the suggestion.

The conscious mind will either generate or pick up thoughts, ideas and concepts from the environment and record them on the subconscious mind.  The subconscious mind receives them, like a recording device would, and then gives them form and expression and produces them in physical form in the material world. This is a Universal Law.  It creates all things, which means all physical things are effects and are materialized out of our thoughts, which are causes.

It’s very important to understand that the subconscious mind does not originate ideas. It only accepts as true those ideas or concepts that the conscious mind feels and believes to be true, and then materializes them. However, once it has taken an idea or thought as truth, which we call a belief, it will continue to act on that belief with no further thought or direction from the conscious mind unless and until it is reprogrammed with a stronger belief.

The thoughts and beliefs that keep playing over and over in our minds that result in behavior or habits that we cannot change are simply subconscious programs that were conditioned in us earlier in our lives. The subconscious’ number one goal is preservation so it will continue to run those old programs, which at some point were installed in order to protect us. It is important for us to understand that it’s only trying to help us based on what we (or authority figures) told it was the truth or for our good.

When you don’t control your feelings or you allow others or external conditions to affect the way you feel, you impress the subconscious mind with undesirable ideas and emotional states. This is why people get confused by the results they are producing in their lives. They say, “I didn’t choose to be broke or to have bad things happen to me,” but by their fear, doubt and worry they impressed their subconscious minds with what they didn’t want to happen, and the subconscious faithfully produced it.

Look at it this way. Your mind is like an iceberg.  A small part is above the surface of the water.  The greater part of it is lurking under the surface.

Most psychologists say that the conscious mind makes up 10% and the subconscious mind 90% of our mental resources. Research has shown that the conscious mind can process fifteen bits of information per second. The subconscious, however, processes over fifteen million bits of information per second. In reality, the processing power of the subconscious is a million times more powerful than the conscious mind because its job is to run all of the automatic processes of the body, keeping us alive and well, our organs functioning properly, the cells repairing and regenerating, etc. In addition, it takes our repetitive thoughts and automates them so we don’t have to think about them. This frees up the conscious mind to focus on new ideas and concepts and use its power of (inductive) reasoning to make choices.

Our subconscious minds are powerhouses that are to serve us and produce results. This is why, whenever there’s a mental conflict and the subconscious and the conscious are not in agreement, the subconscious wins every time.

When you try to achieve something and can’t get yourself to do it, or you start to succeed and as you get close you start to go backwards… What happened? You consciously wanted to succeed but subconsciously, you had a conflicting belief that wasn’t allowing it. This is called psychological reversal. The problem is that along the way we were infected with limiting beliefs that are causing us to self-sabotage our desires and goals.

You may say you want to be rich but your subconscious mind has a conflicting belief already programmed. Consciously you’re saying, “I want to be rich.” But your Subconscious says, “You’re full of it, I’m broke.” Or, “Money is the root of all evil.” Or, “All rich people are miserable and their kids are on drugs.” Or, “I’d feel guilty being rich; I don’t deserve to make so much money.” Or “It’s hard to make money. You have to sell your soul to the devil.”

And those are just a few. Think about it, what else did you hear about being rich while you were growing up?  There’s a long string of subconscious beliefs we all have that we are not aware of having.

You must discover what it is that’s holding you back. Don’t suppress or go into denial. If you’re not demonstrating riches, you have some subconscious limiting beliefs. We all have them and we just need to discover what they are, so we can replace them with empowering beliefs. I’ll teach you techniques in this website as well as my upcoming book that will show you how to transform the beliefs that are blocking your success and happiness.

    Dave, exactamente, tenemos que aprender que tenemos grabado en nuestro subconsciente que nos limita y reemplazarlo con creencias que nos empoderan a lograr nuestros sueños. Estare enseñando eso mismo en mi libro y futuras lecciones aquí. Bendiciones

hola carlos
es posible que en el pasado haya algo de lo que tu no te acuerdas y este en tu subconsciente que te detiene para lograr el exito que tu quieres.y si puedes encontrarlo, saludos y bendiciones

    Jose Angel, totalmente y casi seguro que todos tenemos de esas experiencias. SI es posible encontrarlas y el tapping es una buena herramienta para hacerlo. Yo recomiendo que las personas comiencen por las creencias que pueden encontrar para empezar a liberar mas energía y entonces buscar lo que no te acuerdas. Mis seminarios en vivo son excelentes para esas coas. Bendiciones

Hola Carlos, ¿Como estas?

¿Como encuentro aquellas creencias limitantes de las cuales aun ni siquiera soy conciente de su existencia?
Si una canica transparente esta en el fondo de la alberca y yo no lo se, ¿Como hago para descubrir que esta ahi?
A veces uno se sorprende a si mismo pensando cosas que te hacen decir…. -Bueno, ¿Y tu de donde sacaste esa idea?- ¿Son estos instantes donde uno se sorprende a si mismo la clave para descubrir una creencia que tenemos de la cual desconociamos su existencia?

Gracias Carlos.

Hi Carlos,
Great tips here. I work in the SEO game, and i think the most difficult aspect of handling my business is information overload. SEO and internet marketing changes almost on a daily basis and in order to be successful you need to be on top of it. What worked last month may not work today anymore. Besides, I follow alot of successful people and try to learn as much as I can from them. Like I said, I often loose focus of what to do next and to make assumption of what is best for my business. At some stage I am even at a point where I am not sure whether to continue this business, because I often feel myself trapped in a rat race just for the sake of staying on top of internet technology. So, I struggle alot with focus. Perhaps you have some advice for me. Thanks alot. Mucho abarasos! Chris

    Chris, one of the keys is to get really clear about what you truly desire in life, in other words what is your point B, which I’ll be talking about in one of the articles next week. Then consciously maintain your focus on what you want. I teach several strategies for doing that but one is to start and end your day visualizing your desired result. Stick with us here and you’ll pick up a lot more! Muchos abrazos, Carlos
