Difference between your Conscious Mind & Subconscious Mind
The subconscious mind is far more powerful than the conscious mind. Think of your mind as an iceberg. The part of the iceberg you see, the part above water is your conscious mind. It represents about 1/6 of your mental capacity, and the part below water (the other 5/6 of your mental capacity) is your subconscious mind. When we operate primarily from the conscious mind we are only using a fraction of our true potential.
So, the goal here is to connect our subconscious to our conscious mind in order to use the full mental capacity of our brain. We can do this through forgiveness and releasing emotions, but we must also create room each day to meditate or connect with our subconscious. There are several techniques, such as: affirmations, visualization, prayer, self reflection, meditation, gratitude, appreciation and the use of positive focus techniques.
Our subconscious mind can take us where we want to go and help us reach our goals in life much faster and easier than our conscious mind ever could. So, by connecting with the amazing speed, power and agility of our subconscious minds, we can use law of attraction in a deliberate way to more effectively attract the results we desire.

While the conscious and subconscious aspects of our mind are closely aligned with our physical body, the superconscious mind is super physical. In other words it exists at a level extending beyond our space time continuum. Through the superconscious it’s possible for us to connect to every other mind on the planet. It’s also that aspect of our being that exists before we were born and survives our death.
