Opposite roles of the conscious & subconscious mind

Back to BLOG    Back to Codependency Recovery

CONSCIOUS MIND

Direct communication

Logical, rational judgmental, needs proof & concrete evidence.

Temporary memory

Experiences time as past, present, future

Boundaries on time and space

To make change happen requires WILL POWER


SUBCONSCIOUS MIND

Indirect communication

Emotional, spiritual, creative, sensory-based—may seem illogical to the rational mind

Permanent memory

All time is experienced as NOW

NO boundaries on time and space

To make change happen requires IMAGINATION
