1. The subconscious mind works to make what it expects into reality

Your brain and nervous system respond to the the images held in the subconscious. It becomes a blueprint that you follow.


2. The subconscious mind has its own language.

Your unconscious deals in images, emotions and sensory input. It does not process language. For example, if you think of the word car, you are likely to get an image of the car you drive.

Words with no image or emotion attached to them have no meaning to your subconscious. This is the reason you want to use you imagination to craft images for your subconscious. Words and language may not get properly translated. If you create a mental picture of your desired state there is less chance of miscommunication.


3. The subconscious mind does not reason.

Your subconscious does not try to reason. It does not attempt to think through beliefs. It will simply hold them. For example, as a child you may have been told that you should not talk to strangers. It is likely you still have and recognize this belief as an adult. You no longer need this belief, but your unconscious does not think about it.

A person with a strongly held religious, political or emotional belief will not respond to counter arguments. Such beliefs cannot be over turned with logical arguments.

Your subconscious will seek out supporting experiences. Groups of individuals can come together over shared belief. This validates and reinforces the belief.


4. The subconscious mind may not make logical sense

Your subconscious may connect emotions, images and sensory input in way that are not logical. You may experience fear of the dark or hear strange noises while watching a scary movie. Your conscious mind is aware that there is no danger but that will do little to calm your fear.


5. The subconscious mind does not recognize negatives.

Your subconscious deals in images not words. The phrase “I will not smoke” will translate to an image of smoking. The negative does not have an associated image and will get lost. This may actually reinforce the opposite of the intended belief.


6. The subconscious mind does not understand time

Your subconscious knows only the present time. It is concerned with your immediate well being and happiness. Goals set in the future will no immediate action are disregarded until they are imminent. This is the cycle of procrastination. When the conscious mind realizes the goal is approaching you go into panic mode. The subconscious goes to work to alleviate the discomfort.


7. The subconscious mind processes everything it receives

Your subconscious process all the images, emotions and sensory input you receive. It does not filter the input. Any positive or negative experience can generate a new belief or reinforce an existing belief.


8. The subconscious mind cannot tell the difference between imagined and real

Your subconscious will respond to imagination and visualization as it were reality. For example, you may react physically to a dream with sweat or elevated heart rate. It may take several minutes after you wake for you to realize you had dream. A particularly vivid dream may remain in your thoughts.


9. Imagination beats knowledge

Your subconscious mind responds to images and emotions. What you know will not over power them. For example, people with a fear of flying know it is statistically safer to fly than drive a car. Despite that knowledge they still fear flying. But they will drive their cars without a second thought.


10. You cannot hold opposing beliefs at the same time

Your subconscious will not have two directly opposite beliefs at the same time. It will believe one and disregard the other. People with a religious belief in creationism will not also believe in evolution. Nor will someone with a belief in science and evolution believe in creationism. An argument like intelligent design at it’s heart supports the creationism belief.


11. The subconscious mind cannot retain beliefs that are proven wrong

Introducing evidence that disproves a belief will cause that belief to be dismissed. For example, you may believe that you cannot run a marathon. If you were to train and become proficient at running you would be submitting evidence that you can run a marathon. Any opposing belief would be dismissed.


12. The subconscious mind retains all beliefs until they are replaced

Your subconscious will retain all of your beliefs. Including the beliefs from childhood. All of our experiences shape the person we are. The longer a belief is held, the more ingrained it becomes. To change a belief you must replace it with another belief.


13. Each belief realized makes it easier for successive beliefs

Every belief, suggestion or goal that you act on and achieve makes it easier to achieve the next. Successfully completing small commitments leads to more successes. Similarly failure can breed additional failure.


14. Conscious effort decreases subconscious response

An example of this phenomenon is insomnia. When you try to consciously force yourself to sleep the less likely you are to fall asleep. The key is to distract the conscious mind and prevent it from focusing on sleeping.
