Feeding Your Elephant

There is a difference in power between your conscious and subconscious brain. The subconscious brain contains 4 billion neurons. This is where vision, creativity, intuition, emotion and imagination reside. The conscious brain only has 2000 neurons and houses logic in all its forms.

Most of us do not intentionally utilize the subconscious brain. What if we did?

Albert Einstein is one of the most brilliant men in history. He firmly believed in the power of the subconscious brain. He believed that his remarkable intelligence was due to his deliberate daily use of his subconscious brain.

“When I examined myself, and my methods of thought, I came to the conclusion that the gift of fantasy has meant more to me than my talent for absorbing positive knowledge.”

“The only real valuable thing is intuition.”

“The intuitive mind is a sacred gift and the rational mind is a faithful servant. We have created a society that honors the servant and has forgotten the gift.”

If someone as brilliant as Einstein encouraged us to deliberately utilize our subconscious mind, wouldn’t it be a good idea for us to begin to learn how? I recommend you start by reading Vince Poscente’s “The Ant and The Elephant”. This book will help explain the difference between the Ant (conscious mind) and the Elephant (subconscious mind). Very interesting reading. I need to feed my elephant better!
