Your levels of consciousness are important players in your quest for a healthy, happy life.
Undisturbed, they continue with the business of body processes, survival and carrying out your conscious decisions that keep you in or near your comfort zone.
Consciously choosing to tap into the power of mind at the conscious, subconscious, and superconscious levels to help you heal and create life on your own terms is possible, but not always easy. Unless you have a basic understanding of how the brain works and how to influence it, your default settings will eventually override your will every time. Trying to make life changes without changing your mind's programmed default settings can leave you feeling frustrated and stuck in the same belief systems, emotional reactions, and habits.
The conscious mind is the part of the brain you are most aware of. You use it for thinking, analyzing, imagining, setting goals, creating, learning something new, and short-term memory. It is the part of the brain you use when you hold a seven digit phone number in your head long enough to dial before you forget it.
Faster beta brain waves are usually associated with conscious functions. Although you may believe you make decisions much of the time with the help of your reasoning, logical neocortex, this level of mind is only in charge about five percent of the time.
The subconscious mind makes up over 90 percent of your brain and runs approximately 95% of your mental functions. All your automatic processes are controlled unconsciously.
This level of mind carries out body functions as well as learned automatic behaviors and habits. It is the place of dreams, instincts, personal stored memories, ancestral memories, emotional awareness and belief systems. Subconscious mind powers are many times more powerful and faster than your conscious powers.
Unconscious mind power can heal your body. It can initiate a spontaneous healing of even serious diseases without any real medical intervention or conscious participation on your part. Unfortunately, an opposite harmful effect is also possible.
The superconscious is a source of some controversy. Some experts believe it exists, others consider it part of the subconscious mind. It is often associated with the collective unconsciousness or universal mind, which we all access in the quantum field.
The superconscious mind is associated with higher potential, creativity, intuition, quantum reality and spiritual awareness.

Researchers have much to learn about the brain and how it communicates with the body. They are beginning to understand that there is much more to the mind body connection than levels of consciousness directing the function of an otherwise unintelligent body. They know the gut and heart have their own nervous systems or 'brains' and are in constant communication with the brain, as are the body's cells. There is also evidence that photons of light released by our cells share information right outside our physical bodies. Hopefully the more we learn about our conciousness and the power of mind within our brains and bodies, the more we will be able to use that knowledge to help ourselves heal and achieve our dreams.
