What is the subconscious mind?
The subconscious mind is what controls our feelings of anger, lust, jealousy, hatred and even the desire to harm others.
What we feel, think, or do forms the basis of our experience. These experiences are stored in the form of subtle impressions in our subconscious mind. These impressions interact with one another, and give birth to tendencies. We become prone to react in a particular way to a particular situation or stimulus depending upon the tendencies in our subconscious mind. The resultant of these tendencies determines our character.
Depending on the strength and nature of their character, people respond to the same stimuli or the situation in differing ways. The reaction varies according to the character of the individual.
Your subconscious mind also controls breathing, blinking, and flinching.
Can we alter our subconscious minds?
Yes indeed. Through hypnosis, hypnotists can actually "tap" into your subconscious mind. Have a bad habit such as smoking? Hypnotists can "tell" your subconscious mind to feel ill when you pick up a cigarette, thus leading to the abolishment of tobacco use. Hypnosis is not for everyone though, it only works on certain types of individuals.
