We have two minds, the subconscious mind and the conscious mind. The subconscious mind makes up 95% of your life and only 5% of how we function comes from the conscious mind. The subconscious mind stores all your long-term memories, habits, belief systems and also traumas.
There is a lot of information stored in the subconscious mind that is not accessible by the conscious mind. Tarot can help us connect our conscious mind with the subconscious so that we get more insight into why certain things are playing out in our lives that we may not know on a conscious level. Therefore, it can aid us in healing those patterns playing out in our lives that are not serving us and help us better understand the motivations of our subconscious mind. Sometimes we can get rid of blockages in our life just by being aware of why they are there in the first place.
Some of the imagery and symbols in tarot connect with the subconscious mind and can give us more insight to the message the cards are trying to convey to us. By learning to see things on a symbolic or archetypal level, we begin to speak the language of the subconscious mind. Old memories from the past can resurface to be purified so we may progress and move forward in our lives.
Another important thing to understand with the conscious mind and the subconscious mind is that if there is a conflict between the two, the subconscious mind will always win. This is another reason why tarot can be such a powerful self-discovery tool as it helps us uncover what the driving force behind a situation really is. If both minds are in agreement, then we are much more likely to find fulfilment and succeed in our endeavours.
If the two minds are not aligned, there is something we can do.
Ask the tarot cards…
What is playing out in my conscious mind and what is playing out in my subconscious mind? Draw a card for each and compare them against each other. Remember the subconscious mind card will be the driving force so spend some time with that card and journal your insights so can you really understand and download what this card is trying to tell you.
HOW TO REPROGRAM THE SUBCONSCIOUS MIND
Affirmations are statements that we repeat to ourselves in order to re-program the subconscious mind with a belief that will serve our journey and help us create the reality we desire.
By repeating positive affirmations around awakening our psychic gifts, accessing our intuition, and perceiving subtle energies, we can help to enhance our tarot reading abilities and turn the volume up on our intuition. This transfers over to all parts of your life that you are holding limiting beliefs around. Create affirmations around any problem areas in your life and repeat them when you first wake up in the morning and/or just before you sleep as you will be in Theta brainwave state and this the brainwave state that allows you to talk to the subconscious mind and reprogram it. Repetition is key for reprogramming the subconscious mind.
