The Levels Of Consciousness
The specific levels of consciousness are conscious, subconscious and superconscious. When consciousness is mentioned or discussed there is often a tendency to forget about superconscious which is so powerful. What the superconscious mind has produced in the past is extraordinary and phenomenal.
The conscious mind is where we operate during our daily daytime activities when we are awake. It only represents a very small portion of our consciousness mind and awareness.
The subconscious mind, lies below the level of conscious awareness but it has enormous capacity. It’s like comparing a beach ball (subconscious mind) to a tennis ball (conscious mind) it is the lower brain. It literally records everything we do. The memory is one thing but the recall is something else. It’s quite staggering when you vividly remember something from 20 or 30 years ago and can relate with crystal clear clarity the amazing detail of the event or happening. Amazingly every activity we are involved in plus all our thoughts, our lives and experiences, the things we like and dislike, our encounters each day are all recorded. It has infinite capacity.
There is nothing forgotten by the amazing subconscious mind but its presence is there when required. The subconscious has an awesome influence on how we think and act when we are in the conscious state.
The Superconscious Mind
The superconscious mind by comparison brings a higher level of awareness that identifies both the material reality and also the incredible energy and consciousness behind that particular reality. Reaching this level takes a special effort…
When experiencing a special meditation and enter below alpha into a state of theta (mainly on the border of the 2 mind states) is where the very best meditation is experienced and all the best creativity potentially comes from. In this state we also can experience tranquil peace, blissful love, and serene calmness and relate to the benefits of the superconscious.
True creativity is found in the superconscious. It’s in the mode of superconscious where truly great works of art, music, poetry, amazing scientific discoveries, and especially deep spiritual experiences are found.
