Our Subconscious Mind

Subconscious

By Peter Shepherd

The subconscious mind is essential for us to function. Much of our thinking is subconscious: we couldn’t focus our conscious minds on a hundred things at once like the subconscious does routinely… monitoring balance, perception, body functions, memory storage and retrieval, etc. But two amazing functions of the subconscious are: intuition and inner knowing.

Intuition works behind the scenes, collecting our past experience and learning, spotting connexions and possibilities, and eventually emerging to provide the conscious mind with a clue or hunch that inspires new creativity.

Inner knowing is the mind’s connection with our spiritual essence. The incarnated spirit is connected with its soul, it’s higher self, that is not located in time and space - a spark of God, if you like. It has access to universal knowledge and reflects our true nature which is unconditionally loving.

From our inner knowing, we see things with a viewpoint of empathy, compassion and understanding (contrasting with the human animal’s mentality of survival fears, greed and competition). That shift of consciousness is what the world desperately needs now, from all of us!

We can have a much better life if we are each true to our core self, therefore guided by love and intuitive inner knowing.

We truly need to know ourselves, to find our inner loving core. It is for each person to discover their own version of truth and to recognize the universal values it contains. The measure of that truth is alignment with the values of loving service.

With open communication, we gain in understanding, we see reality more clearly, our empathy increases and we feel compassion.

Communication -> Understanding -> Reality -> Empathy = Compassion

So the CURE is Compassion. By implementing our insights into everyday life, we can start to follow our spiritual path. This means we remain conscious and responsible whatever the situation, and at the same time involved and flowing with the stream of life, connected with all around us and profoundly appreciative of every moment of our lives.
