The Power of Your Subconscious Mind


Your subconscious mind knows all the answers. But how to bring them to conscious mind? Simple morning habit will help you get tips from the subconscious mind and to develop a creative approach to solving problems.

“Your subconscious mind constantly works: when you are awake and even when you are asleep.” (Napoleon Hill)

The subconscious mind never rests, it is constantly on the alert, since it monitors your heartbeat, blood circulation, and digestion. It regulates vital processes and functions of your body and knows the answers to all your questions.

What happens at a subconscious level, will be manifested in your mind. In other words, what is happening inside, in the subconscious mind, is sure to become your reality.

Your goal is to direct the subconscious to find a solution for a problem that you care about. And here is a simple exercise that will help to do this.

10 minutes before sleep

“Never go to bed without questioning your subconscious.” (Thomas Edison)

This is a common practice for many successful people around the world – to force the subconscious to work while you are sleeping.

You will need only a few minutes before bedtime, to meditate or write questions, answers to which you would like to receive.

Make a list of issues that interest you. The more accurately delineated a question, the more meticulous will be the answer. While you are sleeping, the subconscious mind will begin to work on this issue.

10 minutes after awakening

Studies suggest that the prefrontal cortex is more active and capable of creative solutions immediately upon waking. Your subconscious mind worked during sleep, having created contextual and temporal relationships; thus creativity is to be born from links between different parts of the brain.

In an interview with Josh Waitzkin, he mentioned about this morning habit – to use the subconscious mind to find unexpected solutions and connections.

In contrast, 80% of people aged 18 to 44 years old are checking their smartphones in the first 15 minutes after waking up, whereas Waitzkin goes to a quiet place, meditates and “resets his mind” in his diary. Instead of focusing on the external, as most people do (checking their notifications), he concentrates on the internal. Thus, he achieves a high level of clarity, ability to learn and creativity – the state, which he describes as “crystallized intelligence.”


If you are not used to jotting down your thoughts, “resetting your mind” may seem complicated. Actually, jotting down your thoughts about solving a specific problem is enough.

Now consider a question that you send to your subconscious mind before you go to bed. Remind all the questions that interested you. Think about it and write down what you want to find out. Then go to sleep.

First thing in the morning, start writing everything that comes to mind regarding the problem that challenged you.

Hence you can find answers to any questions: how to solve a difficult task you are working on, how to write WAs you are struggling with, how to improve relationships you are carrying on and etc.

Of course, you should practice mastering this skill. But over time, it will be easier to get answers from your subconscious mind, to find creative solutions and trust your instincts.


One cannot change the circumstances but may change their mind and thus indirectly modify the circumstances. (James Allen)

Your thoughts are a plan of your life that you are going through with every day. When you are learning to control your thoughts, consciously and unconsciously, you are creating the conditions that make achieving your goals inevitable.

You are the creator of your eternity. This simple habit will help you realize what you want to achieve and how you want it done.

  1. Thanks for sharing, @uaxi! (4/5) This post has a lot of potential, but falls just a bit short in a couple categories. The first is the use of sources to build your argument. Be sure to explicitly use your source from Zorina in the text, and I would introduce Josh Waitzkin a bit more clearly. For a reader who doesn’t know that is, it is unclear how is experience/interview/morning routine is helpful information. The second is the writing structure itself. In this academic writing setting, try to employ the paragraphing structures we developed in class. Many of your “paragraphs” are only one sentence long, which I understand is typical in many online articles these days, but does not lead to as cohesive or coherent argumentation in academic writing.


  2. Dear @uaxi,

    Thank you for connecting your blog post with our image presentation! I have heard about the rule of 10 minutes before going to sleep, and 10 minutes after awakening, but I have never tried to make it work.Checking my smartphone for notifications after awakening is what I do actually. When people say that our thoughts are material, they forget about the fact that it is connected with the subconscious mind. Many teaching techniques, such as activating prior knowledge, attention focusing activities, are linked with the work of subconscious mind, but only some people are aware of this. They seem to be too simplistic, but it is what the power of subconscious mind stands for. The same happens with the actions in our lives. We can really change some situations to make our life better.


  3. Thanks for sharing such interesting topic!
    I totally agree with you that the level of subconsciousness will be manifested in the real life! Even, i consider that the formation of all in subconscious level is not only dependent on the previous experiences everyone has, but even goes before from DNA memories. I also agree that meditation can help refelcting on the subconscious thoughts, along with this, we can observe our thoughts, emotions and any actions during anytime in the day; this can give us some “pause” moments for stopping unconscious reactions as we used to do. For instance, when we get angry about something, just stop yourself a little bit and observe yourself like obeserving another person, why this thing irritates you so much, but do this without any judgement, not say that “i should not get angry”. when you observe your emotions and thoughts, something interesting may come out, and you may find out that you get so angry because this behavior reminds you about very unpleasant previous experience.
    The power of subconsciousness is so unbelievable and we can learn a great deal from it!
