Why is the Power of the Unconscious Mind so Important?

Current scientific

estimates are that some 95%
of brain activity is unconscious. These include habits and patterns, automatic body function, creativity, emotions, personality, beliefs and values, cognitive biases, and long-term memory.

As the world moves into an era of great transformation, knowing oneself is of the utmost importance. The changes we face every day can often seem overwhelming and knowing how to best cope with them can be daunting.

Knowing who you are and tapping into the hidden parts of your unconscious can be key to making positive change.

Until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life and you will call it fate.

– Carl Jung

Carl Jung is one of the founders of modern psychology and, like many psychologists before him, he studied the depths of the unconscious mind. He developed theories about the workings of the unconscious and identified different aspects, such as the Shadow Self, that play a major role in how we understand ourselves and the world around us. According to Jung, “the unconscious is the basis of our conscious experiences, thoughts, and emotions.” He also stated that “the most important factor for achieving a healthy life is to integrate all of the unconscious elements into consciousness.”

Kierkegaard also delved deeply into the power of the unconscious. His work revolved around his own self-discovery as well as finding a meaningful purpose in life. He described the power of the unconscious as the force that can take control of us if we are not aware of its potential. In his writings, he discusses how we can achieve our highest potential by exploring the unconscious and how it can drive us to greatness.

The conscious mind determines the actions, the unconscious mind determines the reactions; and the reactions are just as important as the actions.

– E. Stanley Jones

The importance of being true to yourself cannot be overstated

Taking the time to explore who you are on the deepest levels helps create an internal map to navigate through change. Our conscious minds have limited insight into our innermost desires, drives, and motivations. In order to tap into our true power and creativity, it is essential to dig deeper and look to our unconscious.

When it comes to the philosophy of unconscious you, it is essential to:

think less and feel more, listen to your gut and allow the emotion of life to pass through your veins.

We must also remember to enjoy life and be fully present with the little things in order to stay in harmony with our unconscious being…

The unconscious mind is decidedly simple, unaffected, straightforward and honest. It hasn’t got all of this facade, this veneer of what we call adult culture. It’s rather simple, rather childish It is direct and free.

– Milton H. Erickson

Life is short and unpredictable, but this only enhances our lives

By recognising the beauty of the present moment and the creative flow of life, we can gain an abundance of strength from the power of our unconscious mind. This way of thinking embraces intuition, open-mindedness and embracing the unpredictable, and not overthinking everything. We need to be accessible to the power of the unconscious to feel more, think less, and tune into our higher self. With this power, we are able to act with grace and efficiency.

You have to begin by posing questions to your unconscious mind, and then listening very carefully for the answers. If you pose the right kinds of questions, and listen well, you can begin to tap into the power of your unconscious mind.

– Nick Morgan

Taking time to focus on ourselves is essential to reclaiming power over our minds and actions

By tapping into the power of the unconscious, we can transcend limiting beliefs and move forward in life with greater enthusiasm, focus, and positive vibes. As we seek to understand ourselves on a deeper level, the inner journey provides access to our unconscious, providing us with the answers and information that will lead us to our ultimate life goals.
