The brain is the highest complicated organ of the human body. Doctors and researchers are bringing to light many unknown facts about the brain everyday that we did not know about earlier.
Even though researchers are trying to make the whole process of brain simpler, but it remains a highly complex zone. Researchers are also finding ways to use the mind to its full ability for maximum efficiency. However, in most cases that is not possible. Studies show that an average-intelligent human being uses 10% of the brain he can use, and an overly intelligent human being uses a maximum of 15% of the brain he could use. Thus, if a man would use 100% of the mind to solve problems or do any other work, then the world would have improved much.
We can classify a mind into two parts – a conscious mind and a subconscious mind. The functions of both are very different; however, each complements the other. Without one, the other is useless. A conscious mind takes the signals and transfers it to the subconscious mind. Then, the subconscious mind takes these signals from the conscious mind, does the thinking, and controls the emotions. After it processes the thinking, it sends out signals in the form of feelings to the brain. This is how it works.
You can solve most of the problems in your life if you use the subconscious mind effectively. However, you must learn to study your inner voice and only then, you can know how to use your subconscious mind. The use of subconscious mind makes you win half the battles in your life.
Before you study your subconscious mind, here are some points that you will find useful. A person with degraded mentality cannot move forward in life. Low level of confidence and dishonesty also stops a person from moving forward in life. Thus, if you want to achieve success and use your subconscious mind effectively, then you have to learn the right things.
Therefore, it becomes imperative for parents to teach their child the right things from the days of childhood. Only then, when a child grows him or she can use his or her subconscious mind with compulsions or learning any techniques. It then becomes a habit to use the subconscious mind.
This was just an overview of the functions of a subconscious mind. In reality, there are a number of functions of a subconscious mind, which we are not even aware of.
Change Your Life by Using Subconscious Mind
If you know the working process of your subconscious mind, then it becomes easier for you to inculcate good habits in you. This is because the habits that you have, turns out from your subconscious mind, which then becomes a part of your regular life. For example, if you are addicted to drinking, then the subconscious mind has made this habit. Therefore, you must know the working to a subconscious mind to change your life for the better.
Many a times you may have heard people saying that you are either optimistic in life or pessimistic. However, being optimistic or pessimistic all depends on the type of environment you are in, and the impact of the environment on the subconscious mind. If there is a negative impact on the subconscious mind, then you tend to be pessimistic in life and all the work you do or all your habits show pessimism. On the other hand, if there is a positive impact on the subconscious mind, then you tend to be optimistic in life and all your work or habits show optimism. Therefore, habits and subconscious mind are very close to each other and depends on each other’s functioning.
The point that you must note here is that how these habits did grow. The answer probably is these habits did not grow in a single day. By constantly repeating some acts or thoughts, you have grown the habit. When you repeat an act or a thought several times, then it reflects on the subconscious mind, the subconscious mind accepts it as a fact, and then it becomes a habit. This is how you grow a habit. Therefore, apparently it may seem that you cannot control your subconscious mind, but the fact is, indeed, you can control your subconscious mind and change your life for the better.
To control your subconscious mind, you have to repeat positive things, so that your mind accepts them and makes them turn into a habit. Even if you are in a negative environment, you must have the courage to look at things positively. More importantly, you must know the difference between the good and the bad. This differentiation feeling will help you to keep yourself in control of your subconscious mind. Also, if you want to change your life, engrave your good thoughts into your mind.
Thus, if you are clear about the working of a subconscious mind, then you can definitely change your life.

How to Take Control of Your Subconscious Mind
You can leave physical reminders to be sure about the thoughts of your subconscious mind. For instance, if you are on a goal to lose weight, write down the things and you have to do and the things you must avoid in order to achieve your goal. Once you note them on a piece of paper, place it somewhere where you can always see it. This will help you in reminding about the goals. Your subconscious mind gets repeated reminders, and in the process, you control your subconscious mind with repeated reminders.
Meditation is the second step to control your subconscious mind. It may be hard to concentrate on meditation during the initial days, but with time, you can do this. It is more like visualization, not the same. It is the initial stage of visualization. In meditation, you do not visualize anything; you just concentrate on your thoughts without imagining. While meditating, you first have to relax yourself, close your eyes and gather all your thoughts to a point of concentration. The, focus on the goal and engross all your thoughts into the goal.
Visualization is the third step to achieving a subconscious mind. When you have entirely concentrated on meditation, now is the time to visualize your goals. It gives you the motivation to achieve your goal. Only when you visualize a thing, can you control your subconscious mind.
After all these steps, make promises publicly to achieve your goal. This is because when you make a promise publicly, you have the fear to lose your image in front of public, and thus, you keep to promises. Further, when you make a public statement, you hear some positive comments from people as well as some negative comments from people. Both leave an impact on the subconscious mind. In addition, if you have an optimistic attitude, the negative comment will give you the urge to deliver the promises.
How to Use a Subconscious Mind to Seek Solutions
The subconscious mind is a part of the brain that does not have the ability to differentiate the good from the bad. It only follows the thing, which the conscious mind reflects on the subconscious mind. More importantly, even though the subconscious mind works twenty-four a day, it becomes active on the passiveness of the conscious mind. How do you use the subconscious mind? Here are some strategies that will help you to learn to use the subconscious mind.
Notify the subconscious mind of the problems you are having and ask your subconscious mind to seek for solutions to the problems. You can remind the subconscious mind by repeating the problems that you have and stressing on the searching of answers. You can also visualize the problem to find the solutions. Generally, this step is the inputting step. Just as a computer has to be fed with data or you have to input data to find solutions to the problems, your mind works in a similar way. You have input data or the problem to seek the answer.
Next is the processing step. Just as a computer processes the data inputted by using several software, the problem that you input into your mind needs processing. For this, you have to relax your mind by involving in different activities such as listening to music, playing, or any other things that are not stressful. The aim is to avoid stress. The more you can avoid stress, the more easily you can find definite and positive solutions to your problems. The conscious mind does not do this part of the work. The subconscious mind does the thinking for you.
Next is the output stage. After the subconscious mind seeks a solution to the problems, it lets you know by a feeling. The most important thing for you is to understand the feeling. Many a times, you may not pay much attention to it. Therefore, it is advisable to pay attention to the feeling. It can be in the form of images rolling in your mind, or just a thought in your mind.
