Your Subconscious Mind is Smarter than you might Think ~ BBC News
Before opening eyes in the morning or in the half-awake half-asleep TWILIGHT state, notice how the mind generates Creative Solutions, Deep Insights, (often bizarre) dream-like imagery & symbolism, while having an almost omniscient quality Or ten minutes into a morning shower, take notice & experience a stream of Einstein-like thoughts~ often striking like random bolts of lightning~
Though German physician and philosopher Ernst Platner officially coined the now well-known term “unconscious mind,” psychological/ philosophical thinkers like Freud, Jung, Paracelsus, Shakespeare, and Nietzsche have long known there to be some kind of uber-complex, multi-leveled hierarchy to the human mind.
** These deep thinkers were highly aware that just below the surface of their conscious mind(s) was a dormant volcano of powerful thought energy just waiting to erupt — with a few of them tapping into, perhaps even somewhat controlling this infinite force to produce their timeless, highly-influential bodies of work.
Mark Altschule, historian of psychology stated that, “It is difficult—or perhaps impossible—to find an [historically] prominent psychologist or psychiatrist who did not recognize unconscious cerebration as not only real but of the highest importance.”
Like an iceberg, there is a great deal under the surface of our conscious, everyday level of thinking — hidden from view. Best known as the “subconscious” and “unconscious,” these powerful mind layers do much of our thinking’s “heavy lifting,” kind of like your Macbook’s RAM/CPU quietly running 100+ background processes as you browse Facebook.

You can use the infographic/ chart below to better understand the vast benefits associated with your subconscious/ unconscious mind, and how meditation is the best training technique to tap into and even control this incredible power.
** 3 Overly Simplistic Subconscious/ Unconscious Mind Functions
~ Memory storage. Serving as a kind of massive underground mental library, your subconscious/ unconscious mind layers permanently store all of your memories, habits, behaviors, programming, deep-seated emotions, and really everything that you have learned and experienced up to this point in your life.
An incredibly powerful tool, meditation is the secret to intelligently dive in, navigate, and effectively use this vast reserve of info to your maximum advantage.
~ Data filtering. If our conscious minds had to deal with the two-million bits of information we experience every waking second, we would be instantly overwhelmed, paralyzed by the sheer volume of data. Behind the scenes our subconscious mind effectively filters out all unnecessary information, ensuring only the most important and relevant nuggets make it to the surface.
~ Meditation is the best way to train our mind to be a more precise, better quality, higher functioning data filter, making you a more mindful, happy person in the process.
~ Creative insights. Anyone doing creative work has experienced the power of these awesome mind layers. Unlike doing something basic and mundane like arithmetic (conscious-thought), getting fully immersed or “in the zone” while you are drawing/ painting/ writing/ idea generating/ creating/ etc requires the conscious “ego” mind to take a backseat, allowing the super-creative deep mind to surface.
When Albert Einstein was working on the modern theory of relativity, reports claimed that he would lay down on the couch waiting for inspirational thoughts to enter his mind.
~ There are many highly successful people who are on the record crediting meditation as their own secret “go-to” technique for generating transformative ideas. While we all want change in the world, the first thing that needs to change is “us.” Meditation bridges that gap wonderfully, upgrading our minds and reprogramming our thoughts to easily manifest whatever end goal we desire — with abundance, health, and happiness just the beginning.
~ Meditation: Align With Your Most Powerful Mind Layers
Then, why is meditation the world’s very best deep mind training technique, allowing us quick, easy, and ready access to the massive creativity, deep insight, and super valuable information tucked under the blanket of our conscious mind(s)?
In order to bring your unconscious and subconscious mind layers to the surface, you must float the iceberg. Since meditation is in essence the process of digging down into the depths of your mind, session by session, your once inaccessible mind power becomes suddenly available to your everyday waking consciousness.
Your freshly upgraded ‘superman subconscious’ opens up a whole new level of mind mastery, effectively multiplying your potential as a human being — while uprooting whatever limiting thoughts, beliefs, and anything else keeping you from fulfilling your life-purpose. Meditation has no kryptonite.
