What are the powers of the mind?
The subconscious mind is a kind of data bank with your own philosophies, experiences, skills, ideas. Everything you have done is stored here. So some people use their subconscious mind as a kind of compass. Because they recognise some situations, they rely on their ‘gut feeling’. Well this could actually be the human subconscious power.
When you fall asleep, it’s your conscious mind that is asleep and not your subconscious. Your subconscious mind works 24 hours a day, even when you sleep. It controls your body, your breathing, the growth of your cells. Therefore, when you sleep, your subconscious is still wide awake. And that means it’s your unconscious mind that’s responsible for your dreams.
And because our subconscious mind thinks in terms of symbols, metaphors and visual forms, our dreams also tend to be projected in that way. Therefore most dreams are indirect and difficult to understand, but they are often connected to our experiences and the events of our daily life.
Advertising companies in the United States have already understood this. Sometimes you are at the barbershop and you hear an advertising tune while you’re not consciously listening to it. You just hear it because the TV is on. Five days later you’re in your car and suddenly that tune pops into your head. What do you think had happened?
Your subconscious had stored it. In that sense, maybe we should ask ourselves what is the influence of the media on all of us? According to studies in the US, there are even companies that manipulate the subconscious in order to get more sales. This would not be very surprising. But it might be interesting to think about what influences us, especially in today’s digital world. If we constantly see online advertisements, aren’t we unconsciously tempted to buy something? But is it still our own will to buy?
