1. You Are Two Minds

The subconscious mind is at your service 24 hours a day, without you being aware of it — like a computer operating system that responds to your commands


You have two minds, two modes of thought active within you. In fact, it is more specific to say that you are these two minds, not that you “have” them.

Subconscious At Your Service

The two minds are the conscious and the subconscious.

Your conscious mind is focused on making sense out of what you see, hear, smell, taste, and feel. It comes to conclusions about these things. If action is required, your subconscious mind carries it out.

The subconscious mind receives your conscious thoughts and responds to them with lightening-fast precision. It is a servant that responds to orders.

Think of how fast you pull your  hand away from a hot flame. Luckily, you don’t have to explain to your body how to spark the electro-chemical reactions that engage all the nerves and muscles that pull your hand away. Your subconscious mind coordinates the entire complicated process for you.

The subconscious mind is at your service 24 hours a day, without you being aware of it — like a computer operating system working in the background, it is programmed to respond to inputs. That is its job. It receives input from your five senses and feeds responses back to your body.

It also receives inputs to your thoughts and emotions and responds to them just as efficiently.

The Meditation

Continue the first meditation of stilling your body. Get comfortable and sit still. Do an inventory of the various body parts. Are you holding tension in them? Tell the tension to release. Realize that releasing tension is an act of our two minds working together in perfect harmony.

I am discovering amazing things and posting results here. The inspiration is the book, the Master Key, by Charles Haanel, 1915. I find some of the authors assumptions outdated but chose to focus on uncovering and applying the amazing truths he shares in his book. I am writing about it here to encourage others to do the same.
