Engage Your Subconscious Mind

The subconscious mind is the feeling mind. It reasons inductively, from the specific to the general. It works millions times faster than the conscious mind. The energy in the subconscious mind is inexhaustible. Using the subconscious mind is effortless. Once anticipation became habit ‒ in other words, the task was relegated to the subconscious mind ‒ it became so easy, that you do not have to think about it when you are doing it.

Allow originality to provoke new images of reality. When an existing paradigm no longer adequately predicts relevant phenomenon, adopt a new paradigm. open your mind and start thinking differently, outside the box.
