The subconscious mind is a powerful force that can have a profound effect on the body. It contains repressed memories and beliefs, the dark aspects of the self, as needed to maintain balance in consciousness. Our body is a reflection of our subconscious, containing all kinds of memories, beliefs, and perceptions. These messages may appear in the form of feelings, dreams, passing thoughts, or physical tension and blockages.
Our conversations can also reveal clues about our inner world, with errors, pauses, lies, and other indicators. The thalamus is the center of exchange for all sensory information except smell. This information is then sent to the hippocampus and amygdala. However, smell goes directly to these two areas.
Hormones are essential for the brain to protect and adapt itself, but stress and stress hormones like cortisol can alter important brain functions such as learning. Prolonged stress can be as damaging to the brain as a well-organized network of employee thieves or embezzlers of funds can be to a company's profits. The subconscious mind can be healed by addressing deep-seated problems in the present. This may involve talking or thinking about traumatic or distressing experiences during therapy while in a calm body state. The more you listen to and understand yourself, the more aware your subconscious will be and the more clarity you will gain about your purpose and next steps. Often referred to as the unconscious mind, your subconscious contains all stored information from everything you've ever experienced.
The more attuned you are to your subconscious, the closer you are to achieving success. To heal your subconscious mind, you must feel safe while resolving underlying trauma and deeply held beliefs. MindBasedHealing is dedicated to communicating with the subconscious mind and accelerating healing through hypnosis, regression therapy, NLP, and Gestalt. Your conscious mind can be thought of as the gardener who plants seeds while your subconscious is the garden in which they germinate and grow. You can use your consciousness to reprogram or retrain your subconscious to do things that are more beneficial for your present and future. Your subconscious mind also practices homeostasis in your mental realm, keeping you thinking and acting in a manner consistent with what you've done and said in the past.
You may feel like your subconscious is making you return to your comfort zone every time you try something new. However, when you learn to create those patterns on purpose, you can harness the power of habit and purposefully instill new comfort zones that your subconscious will adapt to. Learning techniques to reprogram your subconscious will help you believe in yourself because your confidence will no longer be challenged by fear of the unknown. Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) is a type of treatment that shows the connection between the mind and body that acts to heal the subconscious mind.
