When this sub-conscious mind is intrusted through determination, it develops the conscious mind towards progress and development. Whatever task you undertake; determination, faith and trust is certainly required.
Each person has vast reserves of energy within himself, i.e. a person keeps receiving human-spirit energy from this powerhouse throughout his life, and the more he consumes this energy, or utilizes this power, the faster the capacity of this energy treasure-trove enhances correspondingly. There are two sources of energy in the human body; first is his brain which has been termed as the intellect, this intellect has to be continuously exercised; to make it sharper and incisive. It is the duty of the intellect to constantly think, to imagine and to direct various organs of the body.
The second reserve of power, the source, is the human mind. There is immense power within the mind. The intelligence level may differ among different individuals, it is quite possible that someone might not have regularly or continuously exercised his intellect, has not frequently practised whatever knowledge he has learned, then that intellect may become dull; but the power of the mind intensifies continuously incessantly. The power of mind keeps enhancing with age. There is a famous proverb that “You win in the mind and lose too in the mind” i.e the human mind is the strongest source and reservoir of energy, there are multiple layers within each human mind. He can conceal thousands of secrets in his mind, and thousands of different emotional expressions may enter his mind. Therefore the physicians, psychologists and enlightened experts have explained the mind by dividing it into two parts – the conscious mind and the sub-conscious mind.
- A person thinks in the awakened state through his conscious mind and perceives the outer world.
- The sub-conscious mind safely stores all these experiences. In a way, the sub-conscious mind can be analyzed in combination with the soul.
According to the laws of thought, every thing undergoes two cycles of composition. If you wish for something in your life, and if you have not imagined it adequately in your mind, then you can not achieve it. Constant repetition of positive thoughts make it easier to naturally fulfil this imagination. If you desire anything, then what do you need to do? First, you must create it in your mind, only then will you be able to achieve it in reality. This law of thoughts never fails.
If you go to sleep with a thought to wake up at six in the morning, then the alarm clock of the sub-conscious mind awakes you. Your eyes open at around 6 am in the morning. This is done by your sub-conscious mind. Whatever you command it to do, it fulfils that order, even though you yourself may not know that you had given it that command.
A new secret has been discovered in the last century, that our sub-conscious mind can not understand jokes. It assumes everything as gospel truth. Imagine, if you made a mistake, and told yourself, how can I be so stupid? You are not aware of it, but you have invited disaster by telling it to your sub-conscious mind. After this, your sub-conscious mind will scrutinize all events of your life, and will provide evidence to you to prove that you indeed are stupid. Then, your sub-conscious mind will get such tasks done through you, which prove that you are a fool. This is the power of the sub-conscious mind, this is the power of thoughts and imagination.
How to utilize the power of the mind –
The proper utilization of the imagination can be done through mental pictures. Suppose, you desire something, such as a house or a good job. Thus the final outcome has been decided. One way to achieve this is to visualize the mental picture of that result, for example, you are announcing on the stage that I had this creative imagination, which has now turned into a reality. The second method is to see that mental picture turning into a reality, and to behave as if you have already achieved that, you live as if you already are living in that house, and are telling your friend that this entire house is mine. There is no outstanding loan on this home. I have myself purchased this house in my name. When you start doing this, you will yourself be amazed how easy it is to get anything you desire. You have obtained your desired house or a good job by utilizing imagination. Whatever be the end result, the imagination will assist you to realise it.
If you wish to become a doctor, then you should draw a mental picture that you are operating a clinic, and your medical license certificate is displayed on the wall. And yes, take care of the date. If you do not include the year in the mental picture, then the realization of that mental picture will get delayed. If all details are not considered while drawing the mental picture, then there is a possibility of slippage.
Now assume that someone wants to get rich, and he draws a mental picture in which he is counting notes. He continuously sees this mental picture. It future, he will become a cashier at the bank.
Command your mind
In this case the power of mental images did the job, but he did not get the desired results. The fault was not in the imagination, his mental visualization was incorrect. His mental picture was not clear. Whatever he desired, he did not properly and clearly supply the adequate details to his sub-conscious, of what he wanted in reality. He did not specify that he wanted to become rich and whatever notes I am counting, these should be mine, and the mental image should also contain imagination that whatever bundles of notes he is counting, he is storing them in a safe or cupboard, and that he has kept the key-ring at Gurudev’s feet in the worship-altar with his own hands, and that now he is spending time peacefully with his family and is leading life with gusto and energy. Thus by clarifying all the details in the mental picture, it cannot be censored out by any authority, rather whatever he wished for, all those incidents take place in his life, like a movie.
Your imagination should be crystal clear –
Therefore it is highly significant that you should state your requirements clearly to the sub-conscious mind. Let us look at another similar example. A person who desired to become a successful doctor, drew a mental picture that he is treating patients, taking their blood pressure, tying their bandage, and giving injections. When he repeatedly saw this mental picture, this became a reality, he became a compounder. Thus his mental picture became true. He wanted to become a doctor, but became a compounder. Once again, drawing a wrong mental picture led to unwanted results. He did not accurately perceive his final outcome, and did not visualize it correctly, so it led to ruin. Similarly another person visualized that he was becoming a doctor. The mental picture was correct, but it did not have the details of duration. As a result it took him many years to become a doctor.
It is very important to specify correct duration to the sub-conscious mind. It is important to specify the date by which you wish to realize the final outcome. You should also feel the emotions while visualizing the mental picture, which you will undergo when you realize the end-result.
Visualize happiness too –
If you purchase your dream house or obtain your desired job, then how happy will you be? Just imaging that joy and happiness in the mental-imagination. The joy which you wish to attain, when you feel that joy, then you exert a magnetic force, and you manage to attract that final outcome faster towards you. This is a very significant topic, but people tend to ignore it. They do imagination, visualize the mental picture, but do not sense that feeling of joy. They forget that emotion is the trigger, which initiates the realization of the final result.
Imagine good for others, it will be good for you, automatically –
The power of mental-picture can also be utilized for others. In fact, you must. Many negative thoughts come in the mind while imagining for self. There is a fear whether it will happen or not. This occurs, because you are very tightly linked with your own problems. But when you do the same for others, then you do it in isolation. Negative thoughts do not crowd your mind. This is a very important point. So imagine for others and look for those objects, which you need. If you desire a job, then imagine that yours unemployed friend has got a job. Thus you will become a medium. However, you must remember that you will specify only the final outcome, and not the method or process to use. You just have to set the goal, you do not have to decide how to reach that goal. Do not decide that I should definitely get a job in a particular company and that I will sit in particular chamber at a particular position, and will do my work. It is not for you to decide the mode to get that job. A particular person will help me, only then I shall get that job or will not get that job; all of these are the methods and means (assistants) to realize that goal, you should focus your mind on the overall target instead of on the mediums. The mother nature will identify the best, simplest, easiest and straightforward method for it. You just need to specify what you desire as the final result. If you tell your sub-conscious mind to help you, you desperately require a job, then this itself will convey the message to your sub-conscious mind of what you require. It is significant. Only determine the goal, do not specify the path. Just set the target, do not decide the process. Leave all of it to the subconscious mind.
Your positive belief, the greatest power –
All religions of the world are a form of beliefs, and the faith can be expressed in multiple ways. Whatever a person believes about his life and universe, he will obtain the same. If a person can believe, then everything is possible for him. Napoleon was convinced that the word impossible does not exist in the world and because of this belief, he won many major victories. The positive thoughts bring success to a man, however the negative and hopeless thoughts lead a person to failure, doubt and lack of confidence. Today’s environment of rush and self-centredness has pushed many young people towards negative thinking. When such thinking increases, then in such situations, the sub-conscious mind even causes them to commit a crime like suicide. This proves that the sub-conscious mind is a vast repository of power, whatever raw material is input, a similar output is generated. at a multiple scale. Therefore it is said that “It is all in the mind. You win in the mind and you fail too in the mind.”
The sub-conscious mind provides amazing powers –
Dr. Joseph Murphy of America discovered during his research that if the conscious mind develops confidence for cure, then the sub-conscious mind generates energy to fulfil this trust, and the brain generates appropriate hormones on command of sub-conscious mind to complete the cure. It is believed that the sub-conscious mind not only affects the present life, but it accompanies the soul while taking the next birth. This sub-conscious mind builds the personality and develops the person’s basic nature in the next life. So if a man wishes to enjoy the present life and the future life, then he should fill his conscious mind and the sub-conscious mind with positive thoughts and ideas.
It can be said that the sub-conscious mind should be often fertilized with faith and trust, the sub-conscious mind can develop intensity to get everything done through the conscious mind. Three things are necessary to provide energy to the subliminal mind –
The sub-conscious mind is completely pure and holy, and when a layer of mistrust is coated on it, then it gives mistrust to the conscious mind. Similarly when faith is imparted on sub-conscious mind through determination, then it leads the conscious mind to progress and development. Whatever be the task, determination, trust and faith are mandatory. You cannot gain anything in life in their absence. Hence Lord Krishna advised Arjun –
Shraddhavaallabhte Gyanam TatparaH SanyatendriyaH |
Gyaanam Labhdhwa Paraam Shaantimachirenaadhigachchati ||
O Arjuna! Whatever you are doing, your conscious mind is inhibiting you, but now you should focus on the sub-conscious mind and immerse yourself in action with full faith. You have only heard from your conscious mind until now, and your conscious mind will direct you for your actions only within the limitation of whatever it has seen or experienced. However the real truth is hidden within your sub-conscious mind. Listen to the sub-conscious mind and act with full faith and confidence.
The Yogis have termed this awakening of the sub-conscious mind as Dhyaan (focus), Dhaarna (perception) and Samaadhi (meditation). The samadhi means closing the eyes, and listening to our sub-conscious thoughts, comprehending them, following them; and awakening our body’s sub-conscious chakras accordingly. This is the process of Kundalini Jagran (activation).
Whoever comprehends his sub-conscious mind, understands it, he progresses of the path of joyful Yoga in the world. His faith and trust keeps providing him continuous power, speed and psyche.
