The human mind is the greatest storage facility.
What is the Mind?

One of the greatest mysteries that science has faced is the human mind. The mind is the operative part of the brain since it controls the movements of the body, regulates the functions of the organism, analyzes the signals of the senses, and is considered as a set of thoughts, intelligence, and memories.

Since the human being has had the use of reason, he has realized that thoughts act on the body. Descartes already confirms it: “I think, therefore I am” or the famous quote, “healthy mind in a healthy body”.  The mind has the ability to think, imagine, and remember; also, to create stories and believe them to be true. It can even create symptoms of diseases that don’t even exist.

A great emotional burden.

Something that draws a lot of attention is those events with a great emotional charge in our lives that we remember more vividly. It is not the memories that come to us; rather, what makes us feel good or bad are the emotions that we have linked to those memories.

The senses send information to the brain with which we are receiving when we see, touch, or smell. The brain then generates an image of the real event that is happening and produces a specific response for each physical or psychological stimulus that we receive.

Memories cause the brain to activate the hypothalamus to reproduce emotional states according to what we have experienced in the past. If our thoughts are in balance, our bodies will be too.

For example, there are people who take great care of themselves through healthy eating, sleeping well, not having vices, etc., but still suffer from some illness.  What happened there? The fear of getting sick, for example, or a grudge (thoughts of unforgiveness) or scarcity, eventually somatizes in the body, producing these diseases.

Once those thoughts are healed, the new cells that the body generates daily can occupy the organic order that corresponds to them, and the disease can disappear from the body.

How does information reach the mind?

For example, the mind would be like a computer that has many programs, and thanks to those programs that we have been storing since we were little, we get to make certain decisions, like finding a job or having a partner. There is nothing wrong with that, but it would be very good to update them or even change them. But, how is it that all this information reaches our mind?

It is said that the human mind is divided into 3 levels: the conscious, the subconscious, and the unconscious. How would they be related to each other?

The Conscious

The conscious is the rational and analytical part of the mind, and this represents only 5% of it. It is the part that is responsible for giving us the gift of perception of reality and is responsible for planting the seeds in the unconscious mind. Hence the importance of knowing how to perceive the information in our environment from what we see, what we touch, what we smell, what we feel.

Depending on our interpretation, that is how we are going to build a library of information in such a way that when something similar happens to us, we are not going to interpret that situation so specifically, but rather we are going to review what happened to us and whether it was positive or negative, then, based on our experiences and knowledge, we will be able to make decisions.

The Subconscious

The subconscious mind is that door that gives us access to those things and experiences that we have had with specific information that for the moment remains forgotten. That is, that information entered through our conscious mind and disappeared for the moment, but if we make an effort, we can bring them back to the conscious mind, being able to bring valuable information from the unconscious that would help us to resolve traumas or painful experiences.

It would be a kind of bridge between the conscious and the unconscious.

The Unconscious

The unconscious mind, which we often use this term when a person acts without measuring the consequences of their actions, is the one in charge of managing physiological issues such as breathing. In the unconscious mind, live the thousands of experiences we have gone through since we were born and that we do not remember.

This includes the transgenerational tree and past life information.

It represents 95% of the mind. These are the repressed memories or thoughts that we do not control. From a spiritual point of view, this is where the true self is believed to reside, and it is where we must work on everything so that it does not affect us in life.

Everything that happens to us, everything that we experience on an external or internal plane, is saved and stored in our unconscious mind.

How do they relate to each other?

The conscious mind is responsible for giving orders such as: “Everything will be fine” or “I can’t” and that information will enter my unconscious directly.

We consciously make decisions or control everything that has to do with our intelligence, or we have the feeling of controlling everything, but we cannot control our heart rate or breathing. In other words, the unconscious has control of almost everything we do, dealing with a large part of the heavy work of our thoughts.

This makes a good part of what we do day to day, because we cannot be aware of everything we do on a daily basis. Now imagine all the information that enters our unconscious 24 hours a day. Some of this information will have positive effects and others may have negative and limiting effects.

The unconscious mind defines who we are, hence the importance of reprogramming and updating information and, above all, being willing to heal, to do that famous inner work. We will talk more in depth about this topic.

“The key to growth is the introduction. of higher dimensions of consciousness into our awareness.” – Lao Tzu
