Listen To Your Instincts and Your Inner Self
Sometimes tapping into your subconscious mind is difficult and requires that you learn new methods of self-awareness . Sometimes it is absurdly simple and all you need to do is learn to listen to it.
Your subconscious mind wants to communicate with your conscious mind. In fact, It is designed to do so. It is only us silly humans with our doltish ways of doing things, ridiculous notions, crazy assumptions, and lack of faith and confidence in ourselves that makes this much more difficult than it should be.
Two of those ridiculous notions are that instincts are not real, or at least cannot be trusted, and that we do not have an inner voice that tries to guide us. Neither one of these notions is true.
Instincts and inner voice are the way our subconscious mind tries to communicate with us. It cannot do so directly through speech and conversation, so it communicates indirectly by giving us hints and clues.
It would be so much better if the subconscious could metaphorically tap on our shoulder and say “Hey! I think you should pay attention to this!” Unfortunately, it does not work that way.
Have you ever gotten a hunch that something was amiss and the hunch turned out to be right? Have you ever guessed the answer to a question based on something your gut told you? Have you driven a different direction than your usual route and then wondered, "why did I do that?" These are examples of your subconscious mind talking to you and trying to tell you something.
What this means is that you do not need to learn any fancy techniques or methods to begin tapping into your subconscious. The best thing you can do is also one of the oldest and simplest methods of learning anything: start listening.
That is right: taking the time to listen to yourself is one of the best methods for tapping into your subconscious mind.
Instead of ignoring hunches and dismissing that little voice inside, start paying attention to them. Slow down and listen when something inside of you is speaking. It is your subconscious mind trying to communicate with you, and it has a reason for doing so.
This is not to say that your subconscious mind is infallible, and your instincts and hunches are always right. Sometimes they will be wrong or we may misinterpret what is being conveyed. These are unavoidable. There is a reason for the message which may be just as important as the message itself.
The only thing for sure is you will never know what the message is if you do not slow down and start listening.
