What is The Subconscious Mind?

What is the subconscious mind? The term come from Sigmund Freud, the founder of psychoanalysis.

When people think of Freud, they often think of him as some kind of whack job who accused people of being sexually attracted to their parents. But, even though many of his theories have been debunked, he should be remembered for his many contributions to the world of psychology. That’s because, before Freud, there was no psychotherapy or counselling. Also, before Freud, there was no concept of an unconscious or subconscious mind. While Freud preferred the term ‘unconscious”, I like to use the term subconscious.

In Freud’s view, the subconscious mind was everything going on ‘under the surface’ throughout our waking lives. He often likened this to an iceberg – where only the very tip is visible with all the rest being murky and inaccessible. That’s why you might say one thing and think another. But on some level, there is more going on under the surface that even you’re unaware of.

The Effect of Hypnosis on Your Subconscious Mind

Most of what we do is habit. All of your habitual behaviors reside in your subconscious mind, below your level of consciousness.

So, what is the subconscious mind? Imagine, if you will, that there is a trap door between your conscious mind and your subconscious mind. Normally, this trap door is closed. The only time it opens is when your brain waves slow down to a relaxed, alpha brain wave level.

This is exactly what happens when you are asleep. The door opens for short periods of time and ideas, images and thoughts come out of your subconscious mind. We call what comes out of your subconscious in your sleep, “dreams”.

When you are in a state of hypnosis, the door also opens. This lets helpful suggestions flow into your subconscious mind. Some people have also found this state useful for recovering forgotten thoughts and memories.

How Does Hypnosis Work?

Your subconscious mind is your mind’s control center. It controls 90% of your beliefs, attitudes, thoughts, and actions. Hypnosis works because it allows you to tap into your subconscious. Since your subconscious mind is your mind’s control center, hypnosis can save you a lot of time and energy by letting you speak directly to it, allowing you to quickly shift your thinking patterns.

Hypnosis puts your mind into a deeply relaxed state that allows positive, healing suggestions to sink deeply and quickly into your subconscious mind. I say positive suggestions because all research shows that, while in the hypnotic state, you cannot be made to do anything against your ethical or moral values, so the only suggestions that will sink into your subconscious mind are ones that are in alignment with your core values.
