whatever the subconscious mind believes will become real to your intuition and perception. you will be hypnotized into seeing and feeling whatever it believes. it will control you and your reality.

it uses confirmation bias which leads to a self-fulfilling prophecy. this creates a feedback loop and snowball effect.

"Unless you make the darkness conscious it will control your life and you will call it fate" -Jung

“People put a lot less effort into picking apart evidence that confirms what they already believe.” -Peter Watts

“The closer you come to knowing that you alone create the world of your experience, the more vital it becomes for you to discover just who is doing the creating.” -Eric Michael

“Dare to believe in the reality of your assumption and watch the world play its part relative to to its fulfillment.” -Neville Goddard


anxiety can be the end result of negative self judgment compounded by this feedback loop

Finding out what is in your mind is tricky. Some people refer to the subconscious as though it were a separate entity that controls everything, or most things. Like a puppet master behind the scene.

Is it wise to divide ourselves into conscious and subconscious parts? And how much of the subconscious can we be aware of? Once you're aware of some content, then it is conscious. Seems like it would be good to be aware of as much as you can.

There's a lot going on 'behind the scenes' it seems. One indication of this is dreams. It's like we have all this stuff inside us we don't even understand, we don't even know really why we feel, think and behave as we do sometimes. We're a mystery to ourselves.
