Most Of Us Would Like To Think


We need to understand one important aspect of the mind.

The majority of us would want to believe that we intentionally choose everything in life, including our daily activities and behaviour. We’d want to believe that we are in charge, that we have the conscious ability to make decisions, and that every action we take is the result of our conscious intention and decision. The majority of our motivations, however, are not under our conscious control, the fact is. They are automatic and ingrained. They originate in our subconscious, which comprises around 95% of our thinking. Our memories, our imagination, our emotions, and our behaviours are all stored in the subconscious. It contains every event we’ve had in life, every single moment.

Even if we don’t consciously recall those experiences or memories, they have all had an impact on who we are, what we do, how we think and feel, and how we move in this world. We acquire behaviours, cognitive patterns, and beliefs over the course of our life about ourselves, others, how the world functions, and how we interact to the world. We have acquired strategies for overcoming obstacles and challenges. We have acquired concepts and perspectives that serve as lenses through which we perceive the world. Some of these beliefs may be empowering, while others may not.

Even when we are aware of “limiting beliefs” or behaviour patterns that don’t serve us, we may not know how to change them or know how they came to be. There may be times in our lives when we feel stuck and unsure of what to do. We won’t be able to grow more fully into ourselves unless we start to wonder about ourselves and why we act the way we do. With awareness and comprehension, we can start living more deliberately. We can learn more about ourselves by paying attention to ourselves. And we can establish a stronger connection with ourselves thanks to this awareness and comprehension.

It can be helpful to realise that most of the motivations for our actions come from our subconscious, and that we cannot force ourselves to become aware, knowledgeable, or understanding anything if we are not consciously aware of it. And even if we are aware of something, we might not be able to alter or move it without consulting our subconscious. We cannot compel ourselves to comprehend or awaken. We are unable to compel understanding to occur. Although we can’t make our subconscious do anything, by working with it directly, we can make great changes in our life.

Our subconscious is amazing; it’s perceptive and clever, and it only wants to keep us alive. Even the autonomic processes that run our bodies are unconscious. The functioning of each component of our digestive system does not require our conscious attention. We don’t have to make a conscious choice to make our hearts beat or for our lungs to contract in order for us to breathe. Everything just happens. I’ve grown to love the subconscious so much because I can see that it only wants to be of assistance to us. Even though its approach to assisting us can occasionally be flawed, it believes that it is protecting us. Sometimes, a conviction, behaviour pattern, emotional response, or attitude that once helped us (maybe in the dim, dim past), no longer does.

Perhaps we adopted a certain habit that we once believed we required, such as a behaviour, belief, fear, or coping technique. In other ways, those aspects of us are just doing what they feel is necessary to help us, even if we don’t understand why we’re acting the way we are or certain portions of us feel terribly annoying or constricting. Something in our subconscious is to blame if something in our life doesn’t seem to be functioning, if we feel caught in bad habits or patterns, if we hold limiting beliefs, or if unfavourable reactions keep happening over and over.Being aware is powerful. Self-observation has great power.

And it is effective to be able to communicate directly with the subconscious. When we are open and present, insights might sometimes come effortlessly to us. When this happens, something may just come into our conscious awareness. We merely perceive, comprehend, and know something. Just now, something is made clear to us. Additionally, we have direct access to the subconscious. Different approaches and techniques can contact the subconscious in different ways. I enjoy hypnotherapy and hypnosis. Hypnosis allows us to speak with the subconscious without having to go through the crucial portion of the mind the conscious portion, which is usually up and vigilant. Our views, actions, and feelings have origins and justifications that our subconscious is aware of.

While purposefully using our conscious mind might be beneficial, in order to actually change or nurture something in our life, we must access the subconscious. Our subconscious is strong, and being able to communicate with it directly can help us change for the better.

      Hi, thank you so much for your feedback. I am so happy to hear that you want to read the book. Unfortunately Amazon doesn’t allow a print version for books with pages less than 75. My book is a short 90 minute read. Any suggestions how we can go about it?

    wow this is such a thought provoking piece…I had a similar thought a few years back, but instead of it being subconsciously driven, my thinking was more on the lines that although we think we have free will, the trajectory of our lives, our paths, our stories have been written long ago, and while it does not seem like we are just going through the motions because we are the ones making our decisions and choices, we’re actually just following a script written by the universe or the powers that be, which ever belief we are from, I guess the subconscious in this case is our connection to the universe…thank you for posting this, really something to think about and reflect on.

      That’s correct. We are aware of a tiny fraction of the thinking that goes on in our minds, and we can control only a tiny part of our conscious thoughts. The vast majority of our thinking efforts goes on subconsciously. Only one or two of these thoughts are likely to breach into consciousness at a time.

    Another keeper, Garima. I a recall time when I tried introspecting and figuring out where something of my behavior was coming from. I couldn’t figure it out when I was trying so hard to. Then one day when I wasn’t even thinking about it, I read something, and it was like a light turned on. Yes! That’s it! My subconscious spoke to me. Sometimes the Universe slides in a hint, so I try to keep my eyes, mind, and heart open. 👀🧡🧠

      You are right, Lori. Overcoming limiting beliefs isn’t always easy. They are deeply ingrained in us, often from childhood. But once you discover what they are and how to identify them, you can learn how to overcome your limiting beliefs. By incorporating actionable strategies for changing limiting beliefs into your everyday life, you can finally achieve everything you’ve ever dreamed of.
