“All of us know that we have a mind but not everyone is aware that we actually have two minds. The Western world and psychologists refer to these as the conscious and subconscious mind, while the Eastern complimentary sciences such as Ayurveda, speak of the inner or deeper consciousness, and the outer or sensory mind.
The conscious, outer mind that most people are familiar with constitutes only the tip of the proverbial mind-sphere iceberg and is responsible for cognition, reasoning, analysis, evaluation, calculation, judgement and decision-making. It feeds off the five senses to perceive its reality and helps you arrive at suitable conclusions. So when your eyes see an overcast sky, your conscious mind concludes that when you step out of y our house that morning, you should carry an umbrella.
The subconscious or inner mind constitutes almost 88% of the whole mind and is the storehouse or repository of all y our long term memories and impressions both from this life as well as past lives. All positive and negative experiences that you have ever had, are stored here and the resulting impressions are embedded as beliefs, attitudes, tendencies and habits which determine the hardwiring of your brain. This is akin to a library where your soul’s personal records are stored and maintained.
Using Hypnosis as the Bridge:
Hypnosis can allow you to bypass the critical factor and focus on selective thinking, allowing effective and speedy access into your subconscious mind. It can bridge your past with your present and unravel memories and experiences that compel you to feel, think and behave in ways that easily override your conscious decisions. It leads you into a trance-like, deeply relaxed alpha state into which the subject is guided by the hypnotist, by getting his attention to slip past the door keeper of the subconscious or the critical mind. In this dreamlike state, the subject can now recall information from other times or states of consciousness. He still has a fuzzy awareness of his present and immediate surroundings which creates a kind of elliptical awareness whereby he can be in both states simultaneously, focused more there and less here and hence, not only recall but also digest information that is retrieved from the past giving rise to insight and integration of the data recovered.”
