We all have our own mind and thought. This thought varies from person to person which shows their personality, inner peace, and confidence. That is why American philosopher Ralph Waldo Emerson, said

"man is what he thinks all day long".

So, if your whole day is full of destructive thoughts like "I am not good enough, I don't deserve it, I am not a confident person, I am ugly,
i am not good at maths, etc  ".It is ruining your life and only you are responsible for this, not anybody else. So, in this article, you will understand what is the subconscious mind and how we can use it in the right way so that we can achieve what we want in life.

Mind is the gift of nature

God has gifted us an amazing things "mind" which can make our life successful, happy, but it can also ruin life completely. It is up to you, how you use your mind. If you use it your own way, it is good otherwise it will control by other people which is not good. So, Before learning about ways through which you can control, it is essential to know how your brain functions.

The human mind is generally divided into two parts which are the conscious mind and the subconscious mind. These are not two separate minds but two different spare of a single mind . and the function of these minds is also different. Even many names have been given to these two minds, these are Objective and subjective mind, conscious mind and the subconscious mind, walking, and sleeping, and many more. But in this article, I will only use the terms conscious and subconscious mind to explain these two minds. So, let's discuss one-by-one

Conscious mind

Those activities which we perform in consciousness like moving hand, reading the book, driving the vehicle, even every thought which we think all day long are all on the conscious level. The role of this mind is to control the physical movement of the body. So, we can control our conscious mind easily. Here is the best example which will help you to understand the function of this mind clearly

The conscious mind is like the captain of the ship which directs the ship. This ship is nothing but your life. He sends orders to men and women in the engine room. Then, people in the engine room takes any action like moving the ship in different direction, controlling the boiler and speed of the ship, etc according to his permission because he is in charge of this work. The man and women in the engine room didn't know where they are going if the captain gave the wrong direction. The ship will move on rock and get completely destroyed or never will reach on destination. So, it depends on the captain of the ship what I have to do with the ship. This is true with your mind as well. The conscious mind is the captain of the ship which gives the order to the subconscious mind what subconscious follows. It doesn't argue with their order. So, it is necessary for the conscious mind to give the right order to the subconscious mind so that it doesn't go in the wrong direction.

Now we have understood the function of the conscious mind. It is time for subconscious mind explanation

Subconscious mind

Those activities which happen in the body automatically without any effort like digestion of food, the function of lungs and heart, your negative thoughts, etc. The majority of the functions of the body are under the subconscious mind . Here are some day-to-day example

When we start to learn any new skill like driving the vehicle, learning new dance steps, etc. After practice of a month, it becomes automatic even when we didn't think about steps, it happens correctly. These types of activities occur in the subconscious mind. It sinks in the mind after a lot of practice. Even automatic negative thought which comes into our mind occurs in the subconsious mind which we will discuss in a little while. But before that, Here is the best example which will help you to understand the subconsious mind and its function

Your subconscious mind is like a fertile garden which grows all kind of seeds. You are the gardener of this field who takes care of it. You are planting seeds in this garden throughout the day through your thought. It may be bad or good, it depends on you, how you think. But this mind grows both thoughts. It doesn't know which thought is bad or good for you. Its only duty is what you repeat again and again to it through your conscious mind, it has to follow that. So think about this, if you sow thorns in this field, will you harvest grapes? No, my dear friend, it is impossible. That's why it is so essential that you take charge of your daily thoughts. Because if you don't care you thought, your mind will automatically get planted by bad seeds (due to negative external environment) just like the garden. If you leave it for some time, it will grow a lot of weeds.

Start planting the seed of happiness, success, and peace today. Repeat these types of thoughts in your subconscious mind daily and you will harvest desirable results because every thought is the cause and every condition or situation you face are its results. So take care of this

But if you don't care about it (Even for some time) it will regularly get planted by bad thoughts because you haven't aware of it. and it is sad truth you have to face that situation

How to use the subconscious mind to conquer your fear

Here is the story based on the principle of how to use your subconscious mind which will help you understand this principle clearly.So, I think I should share with you

Once Enrico Caruso who was a great operatic tenor was struck with stage fear. Due to fear, his muscles of his throat get constricted, the vocal cord gets paralyzed.He was still backstage and his body was sweating. After a few minutes, he was about to go on the stage before the audience of thousands of peoples. But, suddenly

He said, "I can't sing, they will laugh at me ".He was completely nervous and about to turn to the dressing room. Then, suddenly he recalls the working principle of the subconscious mind that "What we plant in our mind, it appears in personality as well".

So, what he did?

Yes, he breaks his comfort zone and starts to convince himself " I sing very beautiful, I am confident,my fear can't hold me back, I am more powerful than that ".And his mind responded according to his way.So, when he came on the stage, he sang gloriously and majestically. Amazing!

But You will not get this kind of result for the very first time because your mind is already planted with seeds of negativity for a long time.So, it will some time to unroot that plant of negativity and plant seeds of positivity and goodness. Begin now to plant the seed of self-love, happiness, peace, etc and after some time you will notice the desirable result.
