How to Access your Subconscious Mind?

Exercise: Access your Subconscious Mind in 4 Steps

  1. Relax

Relaxation is challenging for many of us, but it’s the gateway to opening and moving deeper within ourselves. Find a place where you won’t be disturbed. Sit or lie down in a comfortable place. If you’re sitting, use a cushion or a folded blanket underneath to help your sitz bones relax the hip flexors and knees. If you’re lying down, roll your shoulder blades down your back to support the heart. Place the hands at your sides palms up, and let the legs and ankles splay out. Relax the eyes with a soft gaze or close them, whatever feels most comfortable for you.

  1. Listen

Listen to the sound of your breath. If your breath is fast and choppy, slow it down by taking long, slow breaths. This calms the mind. Listen to the sound of your heart beating in sync with the natural rhythms of your body. The more you listen and focus on the breath, the more you’ll arrive in the moment, at ease, letting go of thoughts.

  1. Find Guidance

Using a guided meditation or a yoga nidra recording can be a powerful way to encourage visualization and deeper meditation. Better yet, seek out a teacher. Guided meditations will help you set your intention for what you want to work on, from dealing with trauma to fulfilling dreams, getting rid of bad habits, etc.

Guided meditations can often be found free through many different apps. Another option is brain wave music, which moves the hemispheres of the brain into alpha, delta and theta states, which help to de-program old thought patterns.

  1. Be Consistent

The more frequent you practice, the better. Find the time of day that resonates with you most and stick to it. Want to complement your practice even more? Restorative yoga is incredibly beneficial for relaxation.

Accessing your subconscious can help change your harmful thought patterns and take you out of feeling like you’re living life on autopilot. With a regular practice, you’ll enjoy a new sense of well-being, passion and purpose.

Accessing the Subconscious Mind

In our day-to-day lives, we’re constantly in an alert, conscious state of mind. In the beta state, our brains are very active as we navigate through the day, sometimes feeling like we are on autopilot as we form our experiences. In this active beta state, our brain is over-stimulated, which in yoga is often referred to as “the monkey mind.” Here, everything comes to us as doubts, fears, to-dos, emotions, and it can really cloud our minds and trains of thought.

Studies have shown that in our conscious state, we’re only using between 1 and 5 percent of our brain’s resources. So if we’re only functioning at 1 to 5 percent, how are we really living our lives with true purpose? Where’s the other 95 to 99 percent?

The answer is found in our powerful subconscious, where the alpha, delta and theta states provide us with calm, deep relaxation and dreamlike states. The subconscious is where the magic happens, and where the imagination is stored. This state is where we can de-program our thought processes of doubt and fear, and where we tap into our authentic self without the judgment and criticism of our conscious state interfering.

Dr. Bruce Lipton of Stanford University says that the subconscious mind “ultimately casts the deciding vote” on how much abundance, happiness and success you will experience. He also claims that the subconscious is “one million times more powerful” than your conscious mind.

How Your Soul Experiences the Five Senses — An Introduction

Do you really know how your sensory system works?

As a small child, you likely learned in school all about your five senses: sight, sound, touch, taste, and smell. Science has done a good job of providing us with extensive information about the physical aspect of these five primary senses.

Each of your physical senses gives you a different perspective on an experience. Think, for example, of the ocean and how you could experience the ocean through each one of your senses (seeing the ocean, hearing the ocean, tasting the ocean, etc). Combined, your five senses give you the totality for your human physical experience of the ocean.

But did you know that there is a spiritual aspect to each of your senses, a soul perspective of each sense? Julius (a group of high light energy entities) recently shared with me about the soul’s connection to the senses.

The Soul’s Connection to Intuition

Think about the gift of insight or psychic ability or intuitiveness. Many humans have come to refer to this as Sixth Sense or the Third Eye. Julius explains that this Sixth Sense is really a soul connection to the eyes; or more specifically, the soul’s connection to the sense of sight.

Keep in mind that the physical is an illusion. Your physical body, along with everything else in the physical such as your car, house, money, etc., can go away. And that is the definition of an illusion — anything that can go away!

Ten Senses for the Human Experience

You could really say that there are 10 senses to be used in the human experience: five in the physical and five in the spiritual. Understanding your complete sensory system brings you to the awakened state that your senses were developed by you, for you, to aid you into the alignment of who you actually are — a physical AND a Spiritual being.

You have a duality going on. You are both a physical being and a Light Being, and your sensory system is expandable into each of these areas. Your spiritual perception, your spiritual growth and expansion, and your ascension process are all part of your spiritual experience. By becoming aware of and recognizing ALL of your senses, you can utilize and expand both your physical and spiritual experiences, which creates your total experience on this physical plane of existence.

Practicing the art of the sensory system that you have set up can aid you in the progression towards consciousness (also known as a higher consciousness state, or aligning yourself with your soul, or getting to know the totality of yourself). This not only helps you become more aware of your physical state here on this physical plane of existence but will accelerate your progression toward enlightenment.
