The Deep Connection Within
It’s a common question, and there really isn’t a specific answer.
It’s not like a math equation, where there is only one answer that everybody pretty much accepts.
The conscious and unconscious is pretty straightforward.
Your conscious mind is the part of you that is aware of what is going on right here, right now.
The thoughts in your mind as you read this sentence. The feelings in your body as you feel the surface you are now resting on. The memories of what you ate last.
The unconscious is everything else.
A good comparison between the size of the two is a field about ten miles on each side. That’s one hundred square miles. That’s everything that’s in your brain.
If your brain is a field of one hundred square miles, then your conscious mind, the part that you are aware of at any given moment, the size of a beam of light coming from a small flashlight.
Imagine you were stumbling around in the dark, on that large field, with a flashlight, looking for something.
Luckily, the subconscious, or unconscious doesn’t just sit there and wait for our conscious to finally come across what we’re looking for.
There’s plenty of interaction between the two. The more relaxed and open you are, the more quickly your subconscious can present you with the information you need.
It’s kind of like you’re wearing a magic harness, and when you think of what you need, you suddenly move just over the spot on this metaphorical field where the information is.
So, what’s the super conscious?
If your conscious is a flashlight, and your unconscious is a one hundred square mile field, think of the super conscious as the entire Earth.
And on top of which, is everybody else’s field, all laid out.
The super conscious can be thought of as the collective of all the minds that exist, not just now, but in the past, and the future.
Think of several Earth’s all representing different points in time, all with people with their own plot of “mind.”
Not only are all the fields connected (through the deep Earth below) but all the different Earth’s are connected as well.
Now, this is a metaphor, not reality. As they say in NLP, The “Map” is Not The Territory. The metaphor is not that which it describes, only a way to understand it.
So, in the metaphor, how do you connect to the super conscious?
Just like you connect to the subconscious, only more so.
The more relaxed and calm you are, the easier you’ll drift just over the spot of mind you need to find.
And in the case of the super conscious, it’s not only about finding the right spot of mind (or the specific information from your unconscious) but how to interpret that.
If you are quiet enough, and patient enough, you’ll find not only deep wisdom within yourself, but ultimate truth as well.
