The subconscious–mind or ‘inner feeling mind’, is the part of us that holds our life record of experiences, learnings and impressions. This is the creative, intuitive and emotional part of our human make-up and is the driving mechanism responsible for our habitual actions, reactions and feelings, both positive and negative.
Our subconscious or ‘inner’ mind is that more intuitive, creative part of us that holds the key to all of our life experiences. It is the part that is in control of all our emotional feelings, our creative imagination, our ability to meditate and dream. It is the part that allows us to walk down the street, dance, or drive a car safely, while our conscious mind is miles away and thinking about something entirely different. It is a part of our ‘inner self’ that is in charge of our automatic responses like our breathing rate, our temperature, our ability to heal, our ability to sing in tune, and our ability to experience love, happiness, fear and depression, etc.
The subconscious is neither good nor bad – it simply is. It takes care of us and gives us the ability to be ‘human’. This means being sad and unhealthy, as well as happy and healthy. We don’t judge, analyse and ‘weigh-up the pros and cons’ at this inner level of our awareness, as we do at the outer, ‘conscious’ level. It’s as though we operate on ‘auto pilot’ at this inner level. Once we have learned a ‘habit’, or particular way of doing something (or reacting to something), we tend to react in that way from then, on. It is so often these automatic reactions and responses that we need to change, in order to re-claim our happiness, health and wellbeing. Our subconscious never tries to harm us – it simply does (very efficiently) what it has been taught to do.
The P.S.H. methodology is designed and works predominantly due to our subconscious being a very ‘private’ part of us. It will not divulge its ‘secrets’ to our own conscious awareness, or to any other person. In order to make true and permanent change to problems based in the subconscious, it needs to be done within the privacy and seclusion of that special part of us. Changes have to be carried out within the privacy of the ‘inner mind’ and neither therapist nor client needs to know the details or the causes in order to resolve the problems. In fact, in almost every case, the less we know consciously, the quicker and better the changes are made.
