The Incredible power of the subconscious mind
The subconscious mind is the overseer of the entire physical body. It is the intelligence that governs your body—a body made of approx. 37 trillion cells. Consider how big a trillion really is. In the United States, a trillion is one thousand billion. This would be written as a one with 12 zeros: 1,000,000,000,000. To illustrate how large this number is, imagine you decide to sit down and count to one trillion by ones. if you counted by one’s for 24 hours per day, it would take approximately 190,259 years to count just to one trillion and remember your body has approximately 37 trillion cells! So, just for fun, let's examine how long it would take to count all 37 trillion cells of your body. It would take approximately 7.4 million years! Since we are now deep into the realm of impossibly huge numbers, let's introduce one more layer.
There are approximately 100 trillion atoms in a single human cell!
A Washington University study estimates there are approximately 100 trillion atoms in a single human cell. Just imagine. This means you have 37 trillion cells in your body and each and every one is composed of 100 trillion atoms! This means it would take approx. 21 million years to count the atoms in just ONE cell and remember you have 37 trillion of them! Somehow, the subconscious mind has the capacity to oversee and coordinate the collective work of this mind-boggling number of atoms. I hope this illustration provides a glimpse of the power of the subconscious mind.
The subconscious mind is at least 1,000,000 more powerful than the conscious mind
The subconscious mind controls and maintains the body/mind. Researchers estimate 95% of all cognitive activity comes from the subconscious mind with about 5% influenced or controlled by the conscious mind. Estimates vary widely, but a conservative educated guess would suggest the subconscious mind is at least 1,000,000 more powerful than the conscious mind. I hope this underscores the potential value and benefit of being able to receive help, guidance, and advice from such an incredible inner adviser. The subconscious mind is also in charge of memory, emotion, intuition, dreaming and daydreaming. It never sleeps or rests, and is always on duty monitoring, maintaining, regulating, repairing, and healing. Probably its most important ability (in terms of this course), is that the subconscious mind is in charge of your intuition, dreaming and daydreaming.
Communication between conscious mind and subconscious mind is the core technique of this system
As you will learn in following sections of this course, the super-intelligent subconscious mind (under the right circumstances) seems willing to communicate with the conscious mind. The subconscious communicates using images, feelings, sensations, dreams. and daydreaming. You communicate with the subconscious mind using contemplation and mediation. This two-way communication between conscious mind and subconscious mind is the core technique of this system. For your success in using daydreams to accelerate personal growth and professional development, it is important that you understand this concept thoroughly.
Use 7-Step Daydreaming to seek help from the super-intelligence within us—the subconscious mind
We use the 7-Step Daydreaming system to seek insight, understanding, creativity, and guidance that we can use to improve our personal and professional lives from the super-intelligence that dwells within each of us—the intelligence commonly referred to as the subconscious mind.
