Which is in Control, The Conscious or Subconscious Mind?

Deb wrote in to ask me this important question.

“Which is in control, the conscious mind or the subconscious mind?”

It is a good question, with an answer that will most likely surprise you.
Your conscious mind is that part of your mind that you are aware of.  It is what you use to decide things.  You made a conscious decision to read this article.  Because it was a conscious decision you are aware of it.

Your subconscious mind is the part of you that you are not aware of. It is always working and it acts as the lens from which you view the world.

So which one is in control?

The quick and short answer is both. But there is a catch.


The bad news is that your subconscious mind, the one you are not even consciously aware of, is having a huge impact on every aspect of your life.  It determines how you view the world.  It is constantly working….  which means that it is constantly attracting and shaping your world according to the rules of the law of attraction. The subconscious mind is attracting to you every minute of the day even though you remain unaware of it’s desires.


The good news is that your conscious mind (the thoughts you are aware of) is what has programmed your subconscious mind.  How it did this was through repetition.

For Example: When you drove a car for the first time it took a lot of concentration and focus.  You had to use your conscious mind to make every adjustment to the steering wheel and remember to look in all directions and to watch for cars and people.

After years of driving, your subconscious mind became programmed (through repetition) and can now handle a lot of the driving for you.  In fact, many people don’t even remember driving for miles at a time.  I remember back when I worked at a job (ick) that required me to drive to work everyday…..  Most days I drove on auto pilot the entire drive.  It was my subconscious mind that did the driving for me.  (Side Note: I am soooo thankful I get to work from home!)

If something unusual were to happen, the subconscious mind would suddenly hand control back to the conscious mind , because it has no idea how to react to something new. So if a child suddenly ran into the road, you would suddenly find yourself consciously aware of driving and your conscious mind would have to react quickly.

That is what your conscious mind does best…  it reacts to it’s environment.

What does this have to do with the Law of Attraction?

Consider how you were brought up.  All the things your parents and teachers told you repetitively are now living a life of their own in your subconscious mind.  Your views on money, health, love, fairness, religion, morals and just about everything were shaped early on in your life.

Remember, your subconscious mind is programmed through repetition, so if you heard “money doesn’t grow on trees” or “life is hard” over and over again, guess what your subconscious mind holds to be true?

Your subconscious mind does not judge.  It does not make decisions of any kind.  It simply knows to be true what it was taught over and over again.


Simple.  Think about what you want, and repeat it over and over again.  This is how you teach (or program) your subconscious mind.

Using a subliminal video (like the free one here) puts you on the fast track to re-programming your subconscious mind.  It works by showing you pleasant images, with pleasant sounds and by flashing words onto the screen that are faster than your conscious mind can read.  This allows you to bypass your conscious mind and directly program your subconscious mind.


Your conscious mind questions things.  It debates things.  It doubts the truth of statements.  This all inhibits the programming of your subconscious mind.

For example: Pretend the words “You Are Healthy” popped up on the screen.  If the words went by so fast that you were not consciously aware of them, it will be picked up by your subconscious mind alone.  Now seeing that once will do nothing, but if you saw  “You Are Healthy” thousands of times, it would start to have an effect.  Millions of times and your subconscious mind would accept that as a fact.

BUT….  If the words “You Are Healthy” appeared long enough for you to read them consciously, your would probably think of reasons as to why that statement is not true.  You may think, “Well, my right knee has been giving me some trouble…. Oh, and I have asthma and my blood pressure isn’t so good…. My weight may be a little high… other than that I guess I am pretty healthy”.

Of course that would defeat the purpose entirely, because you just gave your subconscious mind a list of reasons as to why you are NOT healthy instead of why you ARE healthy.

What I Recommend

Do NOT be fooled into thinking that you can use a subliminal product just once.  I’m sorry, but that is simply not true.  REPTITION is trainings your subconscious mind.  Practice makes perfect, and in the world of subliminal videos practice is as simple as watching a relaxing video.  It really couldn’t be easier.
