The subconscious unlimited potential! Part 2

As discussed in the first article of the subconcious mind, it is crucial to constantly feed our subconscious mind with positive, harmonious thoughts. The subconscious mind perceives through intuition, or what is also known to be the "sixth sense". Although we hear and see with our usual senses, and the conscious mind understands material images and worldy facts we are faced with daily, the true intepretation and perception of the hidden meanings behind the entire creation can be understood by our internal instinct, which does not necessarily have to be things we have learnt or experienced. This internal instinct which Allah has created for us is a Divine Gift. This internal instinct, if used properly, will guide us to Allah's true Path. For example, many of the Companions of the Prophet (saw) experienced this gift. They had devoted themselves to Allah, and had deep faith, thus through their purification of their bodies and soul, they could free their minds and their intuition.

Allah states in the Quran:

"And surely, We have destined many of the jinns and humans for Hell. They have hearts with which they do not understand, they have eyes with which they do not see, and they have ears with which they do not hear (the truth). They are like cattle, nay even more astray:those, they are the heedless ones!" (Quran 7:179).

Our subconscious mind is sensitive to suggestions, not being able to negotiate or differentiate or barter, it merely acccepts messages of the conscious mind. This is the only route any information can reach the subconscious mind. What does this mean? This means that with our will, we have the ability to filter the suggesstion received, stored and executed by our subconscious.

A good example of this that Ayad (2008) had provided in her book "Healing Body and Soul" was her ability to learn how to drive. She had urged her parents to teach her, and although she had lessons for weeks, she could not control the car, being too scared. When she sat down and really thought about it, she realized that no female members of her family could drive, having all failed. Hence, without realizing it she subconsciously thought that since she was a female member of the family, she too won't be able to learn how to drive. It took her a while to erase this negative attitude from her mind and replace it with a powerful belief that she was capable of doing it. Thus once she was able to mentally accept this new suggesstion, her subconscious powers began to act accordingly, and she soon got her license.
