“The conscious mind may be compared to a fountain playing in the sun and falling back into the great subterranean pool of subconscious from which it rises-Sigmund Freud”

Is generalissimo in charge of your mental forces garrison?

Is your porter at the door post?

Is your watchman vigilant and alert at your gate?

All the questions is about your conscious mind

Robert Collier in his book, The Secret of the Ages: The Master Code to Abundance and Achievement, when you say “I see—I hear—I smell—I touch,” it is your conscious mind that is saying this, for it is the force governing the five physical senses. It is the phase of mind with which you feel and reason—-the phase mind with which everyone is familiar. It is the mind with which you do business.

What is this Conscious Mind?

According to psychology.about.com, Sigmund Freud’s psychoanalytic theory of personality, the conscious mind consists of everything inside of our awareness. This is the aspect of our mental processing that we can think and talk about in a rational way.

The conscious mind includes such things as the sensations, perceptions, memories, feeling and fantasies inside of our current awareness. Closely allied with the conscious mind is the preconscious, which includes the things that we are not thinking of at the moment but which we can easily draw into conscious awareness.

Can you believe this? There is some days in the early this year where my conscious mind is feeding me with suggestion of fear or worry or failure, disease, and so on.

The Generalissimo controls, to a great extent, all your voluntary muscles. It discriminates between the right and wrong, wise and foolish.

Have you noticed how your conscious mind wander in the recent time?

The most important province of your conscious mind is to center your thought on the thing you want, “Believe that you receive,” and then shut the door on every suggestion of fear or failure or worry or whatsoever.

You wouldn’t expect much from an army, no matter how fine its soliders, whose general never planned ahead, who distrusted his own ability and that of his men, and who spent all his time worrying about the enemy instead of planning how he might conquer them.

So what’s the way out?

You have to MASTER your Mind!

Your mind is master of your body. It directs and controls every functions of your body. Your body is in effect a little universe in itself, and mind its radiating center—-the sun which gives light and life to all your system, and around which the whole revolves. And your conscious thought is master of this sun center.
