How do these processes work?
You have a conscious mind and an unconscious mind. This is a very simple way of putting it, but I think you know what I mean.
The conscious mind is your state of immediate awareness. It handles navigation through the physical world, and makes many decisions as you go through your daily life. This part of you analyzes, makes value judgements and evaluates your performance in various situations.
The unconscious mind is that other part of you that is mostly outside of your normal awareness. It is the realm of emotion and symbolism. It does not analyze. It takes things very literally and will simply find a way to make the directives it receives happen. It holds all your learnings over a lifetime, most of which you have totally forgotten consciously. These learnings play an important role in your automatic functioning.
The conscious mind is limited as to the number of different bits of information it can process simultaneously.
In fact, research has shown this number to be Seven, Plus or Minus Two (George A. Miller, 1956 ). So the conscious mind filters out what it deems unimportant and focuses on what it considers important. You experience this filtering process constantly.
For example, at a crowded, noisy party you can easily keep your attention focused on a conversation with an attractive member of the opposite sex. The many distractions all around you are still there, they are just screened out.
Or you may have noticed that as soon as you begin shopping for something like a certain model of car, you suddenly notice them everywhere. Of course, they were always there. But now that they are truly important to you, you notice them.
The unconscious finds a way
Your unconscious mind is extremely powerful and well protected. This protection is a generally a good thing, as the unconscious tends to follow the directives that manage to reach it without question. It functions in a manner similar to the GPS in your car, locking on to the goal and finding the best route, often finding alternate, more efficient routes that you had not consciously considered.
