The unconscious mind is a very strange thing. We don’t know so much about it. I find it very interesting and I wish to know more about it. Sadly enough the unconscious mind isn’t a book that you can read. I can only think of 2 ways to tap into your unconscious mind, meditation and dreams. Lucid dreams are of course better because you can consciously live through them.
The fabric of dreams
What are dreams built of? Who is the maker? The answer is; the unconscious mind. The whole dream is created by it. Every single thing, every ant, every brick in the dream is created by the unconsciousness. The power of it is amazing, but we can’t alter it so easy. We can’t just change it. Just like people say that you can’t just change someone’s character, the character is probably a part of the unconscious mind. Meditating on your character can change it, you can become more patient that you are used to, not ignorant or lazy. Maybe a even more efficient way is the conscious dream, the lucid dream.
Lucid dreaming and the unconscious mind
In a normal dream you can’t have any interactions with your unconscious mind. In a lucid dream the possibility is there, at least, if you are willing to. With this I mean that some people don’t want to go further than the usual fun. Read my latest blog on this one. It can be done with ease. I read some very interesting passages in the book of Robert Waggoner: Lucid Dreaming the Gateway to the Inner Self. He wrote about him being in a lucid dream and also wondering of the power of the unconscious mind. He screamed out loud: Show me something interesting! He achieved something very interesting. I read other interesting experiences with this question. This is a major goal for me, I really want to try that out myself.
This isn’t the only question you can ask yourself when lucid, there are more. As I already said, the unconscious mind isn’t a book that you can read when you are awake, but in a lucid dream in becomes a kind of interview, a question and a answer. Just like you can’t remember a entire book in waking life. But this way you can just ask the book a question and you get an answer, or at least, that is supposed to happen. You get an answer that you know, but in such a way that you don’t consciously know it.
I heard of questions to the unconscious such as: What is my dream job? Who will be the love of my life? And questions like that. I don’t know if this is true or it is what you hope but it might be worth the try, and of course, the future is something that can be changed. Now your unconscious mind might say that you’ll be a doctor but you might see yourself being a janitor of a school, it depends on influences of the society and a lot more factors.
So actually you can ask yourself what you want. But it isn’t always a accurate answer. To have the most accurate answers, you should leave your expectations for what they are. Don’t involve them.
I think this is really worth the try!
