Below the layers of critical-thought functions of the conscious mind, the subconscious mind influences our thinking, impulses, and motivation. The subconscious mind is a powerful storehouse that includes thoughts we are not aware of but that we can pull into conscious awareness when needed. Accessing the subconscious requires some introspection, and harnessing the power of the subconscious can be used to influence one’s life and real-world outcomes. The subconscious is a critical feature of our intuition and can have powerful effects on our day-to-day interactions. Many psychological therapies rely on identifying, examining, and re-training our subconscious thought patterns.
