There are 3 Parts in your mind that I want to talk about. There's the conscious, the sub conscious, and the creative sub conscious. Now, your conscious mind... Well, first of all, what does it mean to be conscious? It means to be alive, awake and aware, right? So, your conscious mind is constantly taking in information using your five senses.
So, it's how you know what the world is like and what's going on in the world, right? So, you see, you taste, you hear, you touch and you smell. And if one of those isn't working properly, then the others kick in hyper sensitively to help you to compensate, right? So, your conscious mind takes information through your five senses. Your conscious mind is alive, awake and aware.
We also might call your conscious mind kind of like your microphone. So, microphones just take in information and they help to process that information. So, that is your conscious mind. So, that is the first part. The second part of how your mind works or part of your mind is this bridge that they get us to the second part. And this bridge is the scientific term, a very, very high browse so be careful, buckle your seat belt because this term will knock you off your feet.
And this stuff is eferred to as TMUS, Totally Made Up Stuff, right? So, we have your conscious mind and this is again, how your mind works. So, we have your conscious mind which is alive, awake and aware and it is taking in all these information through your five senses and then we have this thing called TMUS, Totally Made Up Stuff.
What is in Totally Made Up Stuff? It's all the things that we got through our social lenses. So, what do lenses do? They focus things or they distort things. And so, some of the social lenses that we have are things like our gender, our sexual orientation, our perceived race, our religion, our ethnicity, our height, our weight, our age, all of these things are things that distort in some way the truth.
So, in some ways, it's focus, really narrow and in other ways, it's really broad but through those social lenses, we get this combination of things called our Totally Made Up Stuff. It can also be referred to as our paradigm if you will or our way of seeing the world. So, we have our conscious mind, then we have our Totally Made Up Stuff which then gets file in, gets save into our... Let's call this our DVD or a hard drive, right?
So, all of this Totally Made Up Stuff gets written to this hard drive. Well, what else is on that hard drive? The hard drive contains things like our habits, our attitudes, our beliefs, our expectations, our self talk. All of those things get stored on our sub conscious. Now, when we talk about sub conscious, let's just break that word apart so it means to be alive, awake and aware just like conscious but sub means under.
So, it is under the awareness that we have that we are not readily open to or have available to us, right? So, it is the consciousness that's under. So, we have our conscious mind. We have our totally made up stuff and we have our sub conscious. Now, the interesting thing is I can control some of those things in my conscious mind or limit that information but that stuff gets written into my subconscious.
And I am not always aware of what some of those things are, all right? So that the conscious mind, the totally made up stuff and the subconscious. Now, the most powerful port of your mind is this third area called the creative sub conscious. And the creative sub conscious only has one primary job. Now, it shows up in three... It has three manifestations but it's got one job and its job is to say yes to anything that is in the subconscious, all right?
All the creative subconscious does is say yes to anything and everything that is in the subconscious/hard drive. Now, the creative subconscious, its job, its one job to say yes and that yes manifests itself in three different ways. One, it maintains sanity. It makes sure that we are acting right what the subconscious says. So, if in my subconscious, I don't believe I can do a thing, my creative subconscious is design... Its job is to make sure that I'm not able to do that thing that I "know" or think that I can't do.
Even if I have the ability to do it but if I know that I can't, my creative subconscious job is to make sure that I don't do it. All right? So, to maintain sanity so I act like myself.
