The Conscious And The Subconscious Mind
That of the mind is classified into two types. The conscious and subconscious minds. But what exactly are the meanings of the two distinct types of minds? There is a common misconception that neither of our minds participates in every aspect of our lives. This, however, is not even close to being true. The subconscious mind is responsible for the vast majority of your life experiences. So, in this article, I’d like to discuss the two minds and how they interact to create a life worth living. That is why it is critical to understand the two minds because they are responsible for every aspect of your life.
Awareness Of The Minds: Conscious and Subconscious
We must recognize what the two minds are. This is because it will assist you in understanding what is going on in each area of your mind and finding a way to change it. However, we must first understand how the conscious and subconscious minds function in terms of self-awareness. This will assist you in fulfilling your deepest desires and dreams in the future.
The conscious mind is defined as having everything that you are currently aware of and even thinking about. However, these are usually fleeting thoughts that come and go over time. The conscious mind is, in essence, the logical side of the mind. The subconscious mind is then responsible for everything that has happened in life. It is all of your memories, good and bad. The emotional mind is the name given to this part of the mind. Without going into too much detail, your subconscious mind is to blame for everything that happens in your life.
The conscious and subconscious minds are both located in the cerebellum region of the brain. The cerebellum is the brain’s backbone. It is in charge of all the motor skills’ daily functions. The limbic system, which carries all of one’s emotions, is located within the cerebellum. So, when we experience these emotions, we act, and the outcomes are determined by those actions.
Aside from the cerebellum, the hippocampus aids in the retrieval of previously hidden memories. In some ways, everything stems from these two areas of the brain. Both the conscious and subconscious are expected to manifest in these areas of the brain.
“The subconscious mind is the driving force in your life.”
The subconscious mind is always in charge of how things appear in your life. This is due to its greater power than anyone could have imagined. So, whether you realize it or not, everything is coming into your life, even if you don’t want it. That’s because it comes from your inner thoughts, even if you’re not aware of them. So, in general, be wary of what you’re thinking and how you’re acting.
Finally, one’s life is determined by both the conscious and subconscious minds. They collaborate to store and retrieve data. The subconscious mind, on the other hand, is always active and communicating with you.

Conscious vs. Subconscious
So you now understand that the brain is divided into two parts: the conscious and the subconscious. The Conscious contains all of your feelings, desires, thoughts, and dreams at any time. It stores all the information that you have been taught at any given point in time. While the subconscious is where everything is stored, including your values, memories, and beliefs. This can cause someone to be emotional and act rashly.
When you become aware of the motivations behind the two minds, everything begins to shift. This is because we have control over our thoughts and the emotions that accompany them. However, the subconscious is the more important of the two minds because it creates your story. It is the manifestation of your deepest desires. When you can tell the difference, everything opens up for more opportunities.
There are several distinctions between the two minds. Here are a few examples.
- They work together: Despite being diametrically opposed, the conscious and subconscious come together. This means that if you change your mind, your subconscious will not be affected.
- Creativity comes from the subconscious: When you create, it comes mostly from your subconscious, but it can also come from your conscious mind. However, creativity is primarily the result of the subconscious. That includes your intuition and rationality.
- Habits are within the subconscious: Habits cannot be controlled by the conscious mind. Habits operate on autopilot without you even realizing it. However, habits can be changed; this is a natural process.
“Your habits determine your level of success in life.
- The conscious mind chooses to believe while the subconscious must accept: Have you ever been told something and thought to yourself, “Year right?” That’s because your conscious mind is telling you not to believe it. The subconscious, on the other hand, has no choice but to believe what you just heard. That is why it is critical to be cautious of what you hear or learn.
- Conscious is intellectual and subconscious is emotional: Because the conscious mind dislikes dealing with emotions, it is pushed to the subconscious mind. The conscious mind would prefer that you gather information and study it.
- If you want to change your subconscious mind, you must repeat yourself: Your problems will not go away on their own. You must repeat the entire pattern for it to change. This is when reprogramming the subconscious mind comes in handy.
Ultimately, the power of each of your minds has an impact on every aspect of your life. It all comes down to understanding the differences to understand what is going on in your life. Particularly that of your subconscious mind.

What Is Your Subconscious Saying
Believe it or not, your subconscious is always speaking to you. We all have daily struggles that cause us to develop habits or feel certain emotions. In any case, keep an eye on what you’re getting into in your life because your subconscious may be telling you something. We seek happiness throughout our lives. However, if you don’t know what’s going on, this could be a problem. So let me go over a few things your subconscious may be telling you. These things are usually things you see in your dreams.
- Nudity: When you dream of being naked, you are typically afraid of being exposed to something. This could refer to a financial situation. However, dreaming of others typically means that you are in a difficult situation. Cheating in a relationship is an example of this. Instead, we must accept ourselves and stop hiding.
- Flying: Dreaming of flying means typically that you’re in luck.
- Waterfalls: This typically happens when we are needed to make room for something new that is coming.
- Teeth: When we dream about teeth falling out, it is typically because we are terrified of something.
- Death: This is a more positive dream than a negative one. Death typically represents the end of something and the start of something new.
- Pregnancy: No dreaming of pregnancy does not imply that you are pregnant, but it is a good idea to check. This usually indicates that inner growth is taking place in your life. The beginning of a spiritual awakening.
- Falling: Falling in dreams happens when things in your life get out of control or when you feel you can’t control something.
“Listen to your dreams they are trying to tell you something.”
- Chasing: These kinds of dreams are all about being threatened with something. It is a good idea to go out there and try something new or create a new habit.

Thank you for this wonderful post. I feel like it was needed as I was not aware of the two. I always thought that it was the same thing. Well, you learn something new everyday. I will be sure to share this article with friends and family. I am sure that they will appreciate it
I wasn’t aware either until a few years ago when I started studying the law of attraction. Thanks for your insight.
Love this article ! I’ve always been fascinated with how the mind works and psychologically and what particularly caught my eye was your breakdown of our dreams. As a child, i often dreamt of flying without realising or knowing the real meaning behind it. This makes a very interesting read and the more we learn about how our conscious and subconscious mind works, the better we can live.
I thought dreams were just that until I started learning the meaning behind them. It’s interesting what one can find when studying and doing research.
This is a great article on the conscious and subconscious mind. I love how you break down the different aspects of each and explain how they work together to create our reality. I’m definitely going to be reading more on this topic! Since in our culture, science has largely rejected the existence of the subconscious, it’s great to have a well-researched article that can go into depth on this topic. Thank you for sharing your insights!
I never knew that about science. I just know about law of attraction so I decided to write about the two minds. So thanks for reading.
I found this article very interesting. Especially for the differences between conscious and subconscious minds. So basically subconscious minds are on autopilot and follow base on our lives. Whereas as conscious minds is when you take the driving seat and take control what is in your mind. Glad a person can change their subconscious mind as I am sure many people want to change their lives. I know I want to change a few things.
The dream descriptions I found interesting. I must have a look into it as I keep dreaming of a specific category.
You can your subconscious mind it’s all about repetition. It’s a long but we’ll deserve process. Thanks for checking my article out.
