The term “subconsciousness” is understood in psychology as the soul-spiritual processes below the threshold of consciousness. Psychoanalysis describes the area of the human psyche as the unconscious, which is not accessible to the conscious mind. The subconscious controls many emotional reactions, since our behaviour patterns are stored there. All our decisions are initially made by our subconscious.
Subconsciousness – All experiences that we have had and beyond are stored inside of it. All events including the history of creation are recorded in our subconscious. The subconscious is responsible for conscious actions as well as for those that are below the threshold of conscious perception, as well as for reflexes. On the physical plane, our subconscious regulates the heartbeat, digestion, breathing, etc. The subconscious is also responsible for dreams. It is always active HERE and NOW.
Symbols are the universal and only language for the subconscious. Symbols are information that can be understood universally and connect the higher with the lower. Therefore the symbols of the Tarot, for example, have a special meaning. The keys “high priestess” and “empress” are symbolically assigned to the subconscious. Subconsciousness controls all developmental processes. The imagination, based on memory, is a special mental function. Since our subconscious works with images, it absorbs everything that is intensively practiced. In general, it absorbs all unfiltered signals coming from the self-consciousness. This is the key to the realization of individual desires.
From the perspective of Kabbalah, the right pillar of the tree of life represents the self-consciousness and the left one the subconsciousness. The self-consciousness symbolizes the principle of “giving”, the subconsciousness represents “receiving”. The superconsciousness is the mediation between right and left, between male and female and is the middle column. It is very obvious that the balance of all three pillars is necessary for a fulfilled life.
We are only able to purposefully influence our Subconsciousness if we are convinced of something and have the necessary knowledge of these laws. In the first online instructions of the Hermetic Academy, the practical application of these forces and laws are dealt with in a very special way.
To proclaim something like “I am beautiful” and at the same time not being convinced of the beauty all around, is and remains a lie assertion. This has nothing to do with a real affirmation or suggestion. It is a lying to oneself without knowledge of the true functioning of the subconsciousness. A suggestion is a hint and an affirmation reminds us of the actual reality behind the outer appearance. As long as a person is plagued by the feeling of lack, the subconsciousness cannot be convinced of the opposite. Only once the person is convinced of the beauty and limitless abundance of divine creation can BEAUTY be suggested to the subconsciousness.
Obviously, many fallacies are hidden in the esotericism fair and the New Age movement. In contrast, the Hermetic Academy, as a guardian of the Western mystery tradition, draws on millennia-old wisdom that has been verified by tens of thousands of people
