Living Subconsciously

2 years, 5 months ago

I’m interested in finding out how i can live my life subconsciously, free from the judgement of social conformity and logic. I would also like to know how we can customize our subconscious minds to reach our true desires, and not just those that we’ve been bred to believe by our parents and society. So once again the question is how can we customize our subconscious to believe in our true desires and how can we live in a never-ending state of subconscious awareness, control, or enlightenment?

Would living according to your subconscious really beneficial? I can imagine it would be quite dangerous. Advertisements, propaganda, social pressures… these things all prey on our subconscious in order to make us easier to control, and can only be rejected by a judging conscious.

Now, perhaps a selective-consciousness would be the best bet. In other words, we can remain wary of the aforementioned dangers in order to preserve our independence and free thought, but when it comes to small, daily interactions with people we can let go of our judgements in order to share a little bit of happiness with everyone we come across.

As for helping your subconscious recognize your true desires, I can think of of two ways to do this: drugs (specifically psychedelics) and meditation. Drugs are the quick-and-easy way, while meditation takes time. Both help to reveal your subconscious to yourself, and to recognize what is truly important to you. I think the optimal method is to acquire the knowledge quickly using drugs, and then use meditation to internalize those lessons.

I don’t have a ton of experience with drugs and meditation; I have tripped on shrooms a couple times, I smoke weed semi-regularly, and I have meditated a handful of times. My goals are to scale back on my reefer consumption and meditate more, but I’ve already learned a lot from the drugs alone.

Just my two cents.

Interesting question.
First of all, you can’t.
You also need your conscious awareness or else you won’t even be able to know what’s in front of you.
What you can do is increase your consciousness over stuff that surrounds you, knowing better what every action implies, so to say. Here are some tips anyway:
Meditation. every day, at a given time. Just relax, breathe deeply, and let thoughts pass, don’t try to control them.
Read. Also do whatever creative thing it is that you do (I assume everybody does some kind of creative stuff), dancing, singing, drawing, writing, or even working out or solving math problems, juggling, whatever. All of these are active ways of meditation actually.
Dreaming. There are several things to this. First, and right before you go to sleep, try to remember your entire day. Think of the last action you did, then whatever you did before, and keep it like that until you reach the morning. The first times will be hard, but you’ll get better, as days go by you can even think of how you’ve felt about stuff, or its influence in your state of mind. When you wake up, before making any other thing, even stretching, focus and try to remember what you just dreamed. Keeping a journal would also be helpful. Also, try to analyze the dreams and their symbolism, remember every symbol counts. A good trick for lucid dreaming is to keep looking at your hands or the mirror. You’ll eventually do it in your dreams.
anyway, there’s more but I can’t think of it right now.
Hope it helps :)

@rayman24, Living subconsciously? That would mean living trapped inside your own head, how is that a good thing? You wouldn’t even be conscious, wouldn’t know that you’re living.

I doubt it’s even possible. Well, maybe if you get a lobotomy.

How can you customize your subconscious? That’s very simple actually, but it takes a lot of consistent effort.

The first thing you need to do is get a proper understanding of the subconscious. You don’t get this by reading or theorizing, you get it through introspection. Meditate frequently, and question EVERYTHING.

The more present and aware you are, the more you see the workings of the subconscious.

The subconscious works in patterns, such as habits and opinions. To change these, all it takes is repeated consistent action. Find out what you need to get where you want, and whenever your ego wants to do the opposite of this, YOU PUSH THROUGH, you oppose your ego till it does what you want it to.

The ego works stealthily, and it always clings to habit. You rationalize things to keep doing what you’ve done, keep getting what you’ve gotten, and this is done automatically, you must question all of your rationalizations.

You must let go of your grudges, your obsessions, because they blind you and they shape you.
All of your complex desires really stem from a few simple deep set ones, they’re all offshoots of these deep obsessions, they’re all related to them, they’re all a delusive means to their ends. But they don’t lead to the goal, they lead you in circles, to keep you in homeostasis.

Most of these deep set desires are probably rooted in your childhood, attachments that have shaped you throughout your life. They’re deep set, and “important” to the ego, so you will have a fierce inner battle if you try to remove these. It will be a lot of mental pain, be prepared for this.

No pain, no gain. But it’s always worth the pain, it’s worth it thousandfold.

But you can’t just brute force your way, unless you have a very strong mind, good self-discipline and high motivation. There’s just no way, the ego will overpower you.
So you need to be smart, build momentum, leverage, sneak past the ego and plant the seeds, wear it down and slowly tear it apart.

So the main thing you need is introspection and consistent action.
But it will be a lot easier if you also use positive affirmations, nlp, and other shit like that.

But the most important thing is consistent action, without this you won’t get anywhere, you’ll just get fooled by the subconscious and keep going the downward spiral.

And keep in mind that the vast majority of things the subconscious tells you are just illusions.
