1. 1.It analyzes problems and concerns – whatever has its attention at the time.
    It makes decisions that we often think are automatic, but that engage a part of your subconscious mind.

  2. 2.It exercises what we know of as “Will Power”, but will power often fails, and old behaviours recur.

  3. 3.The conscious mind is also the place of working memory. For those of you who are familiar with computers, it is akin to RAM memory on your computer.

The subconscious mind has no power to reason, but accepts and acts upon any fact or suggestion given to it by the conscious mind. Everyone has already experienced hypnosis, by accident or intentionally. It is a natural state of mind in which your mind focuses on something when you are doing something else – possibly a day dream while driving down the road for example, causing you to pass your next turn. Advertisers know this well – and exploit it. Television programming, for example, leaves viewers in a relaxed and suggestible state of mind, and once there, subject you to their suggestions. They are called commercials, and they’re designed to affect your sense of self-worth, confidence, or well being, with the solution to “your” problem being to buy their product or service.


Because the subconscious mind accepts anything, it is possible to program it (or be programmed) to be negative, pessimistic or unconfident, even when those assumptions may have no basis in fact. However, the subconscious mind can also be re-programmed to be positive, optimistic and confident, empowering you to realize much more of your true potential.

It is important to understand the difference between the Conscious and Subconscious mind.

Your conscious mind is the part of you that is aware of what is going on right now. It is the part of you that is reading this at this moment, and accounts for approximately 10 percent of your mind. It is the part that makes choices and decisions. It is logical and analytical, and performs four basic functions:

‘The subconscious mind can also be reprogrammed to be positive, optimistic and confident.’

Hypnosis is a state of relaxation in which you are more open to suggestions. In this state, your brain waves slow down (a state called “Alpha”), giving you access to your Subconscious Mind. Contrary to popular belief, your Conscious Mind is still completely aware of what is going on, but while in this relaxed state, your subconscious mind is able to accept information given to you by your hypnotherapist. It is a state of consciousness that you enter and leave naturally at all times throughout the day. All a hypnotherapist does is use this natural human process to change negative thought patterns into positive ones in order to alter patterns of behaviour.
