How the conscious and subconscious mind operate to keep you healthy
Our minds, which includes the conscious and subconscious mind is under the direct control of God, and God never makes a mistake when it comes to the physical healing of our bodies. God is telling us it is now time to transform our thinking, allow new ideals to be awaken in our minds in such a way that our minds will begin to create the necessary healing that will make our bodies whole again and expectable to Christ.
Now listen to how the Lord appeals to us, He says, “1I APPEAL to you therefore, brethren, and beg of you in view of [all] the mercies of God, to make a decisive dedication of your bodies [presenting all your members and faculties] as a living sacrifice, holy (devoted, consecrated) and well pleasing to God, which is your reasonable (rational, intelligent) service and spiritual worship.
2Do not be conformed to this world (this age), [fashioned after and adapted to its external, superficial customs], but be transformed (changed) by the [entire] renewal of your mind [by its new ideals and its new attitude], so that you may prove [for yourselves] what is the good and acceptable and perfect will of God, even the thing which is good and acceptable and perfect [in His sight for you].” (Romans 12:1-2 AMP)
When God created man in his own image and likeness, he created a perfect individual that could operate on its own individual systems, but that will always be connected to the one present in the universe that sustains all life, that is the creator himself. He gave man a body, a mind and a soul. The body was to house the mind and soul of man which would operate to take care of the man needs. The conscious mind of man was put in charge of the subconscious mind. Our mind is so designed that it prepares for us the most important foundations of cognition, whilst we have not the slightest apprehension of the modus operandi.
The subconscious soul, like a benevolent stranger, works and makes provision for our benefit, pouring only the mature fruit into our lap; thus ultimate analysis of thought processes shows that the subconscious is the theatre of the most important mental phenomena.
The value of the subconscious is enormous; it inspires us, it warns us; it furnishes us with names, facts, and scenes from the storehouse of memory. It directs our thoughts, tastes, and accomplishes tasks so intricate that no conscious mind, even if it had the power, has the capacity for.
We can walk at will; we can raise the arm whenever we choose to do so; we can give our attention through eye or ear to any subject at pleasure. On the other hand, we cannot stop our heart beats or the circulation of the blood, nor the growth of stature, nor the formation of nerve and muscle tissue, nor the building of the bones, nor many other important vital processes.
If we compare these two sets of action, the one decreed by the will of the moment, and the other proceeding in majestic, rhythmic course, subject to no vacillation, but constant at every moment, we stand in awe of the latter, and ask to have mystery explained. We see at once that these are the vital processes of our physical life, and we cannot avoid the inference that these all important functions are designedly withdrawn from the domain of our outward will with its variations and transitions, and placed under the direction of a permanent and dependable power within us.
Of these two powers, the outward and changeable has been termed the “Conscious Mind,” or the “Objective Mind” (dealing with outward objects). The interior power is called the “Subconscious Mind,” or the “Subjective Mind,” and besides its work on the mental plane it controls the regular functions which make physical life possible.
The subconscious mind never sleeps, never rests, any more than does your heart, or your blood. It has been found that by plainly stating to the subconscious mind certain specific things to be accomplished, forces are set in operation that lead to the result desired. Here, then, is a source of power which places us in touch with the God who never sleeps or slumbers. You can now clearly see that the power to heal your physical body and transform you into a brand new work of art is in your control. By suggesting to your subconscious mind the healing that you require for your body is only a thought away, now let the healing begin. Use the power God has placed in your hand to heal your wounded body.
