Our mind is made up of three parts:

1. The Conscious Mind (The Perceiver)
The conscious mind is known as the objective mind. It is the base of perception, association, evaluation and the decision making area. We think with this part of our mind.

2. The Subconscious Mind (The Recorder)
Our subconscious mind, on the other hand, has been labeled the subjective mind. It is the storage compartment of the mind. Like the memory bank of a computer, all information is recorded and retrieved here. This is where we store and process events, feelings, beliefs, opinions, truths and expectations. The process of our circulatory, digestive, and breathing are controlled automatically by the subconscious.

Beliefs operate our subconscious mind. According to Dr. Joseph Murphy, "Your subconscious mind perceives by intuition. It is the seat of your emotion and the storehouse of memory. It will accept any suggestion and will respond according to the nature of that suggestion." Once our subconscious mind accepts an idea, it begins to put it into action. To the subconscious mind, our thoughts are realities. It is like an automatic pilot device that has been given a coded message about how to navigate a ship over the years.

3. The Creative Subconscious Mind (The Generator of Direction)
Our creative subconscious maintains our pictures of the way things are, keeps order, problem solves and is an energy generator (fight or flight). It is the creative rationale for our life. When you have a negative past experience in your data bank, it influences what you feel you can do in the future.
