-- What Is It?
mind is part of the Mind of God into which the sentience of the soul and
memories of the soul arise. The
absorption depends on the level of the consciousness of the individual.
This will determine the sharpness and the purity of reason and logic with
which the individual operates. And
the individual, as he grows from childhood, does not reach the full
consciousness of his level of purity in the Mind of the Father until he is 28
years of age.
Subconscious Mind is that portion of the mind which acts below the level of
conscious awareness. It is that part
of mind which is constantly active and never sleeps but continues unfailingly in
its operations. Subconscious mind
has perfect connection with all points of the interims of time and space and
this perfect connection is the basis of telepathy.
is also the Law and the way through which we are put in touch with our spiritual
teachers. When the soul has become
spiritually effervescent from the activity of the Light and the Life of Christ
within us, then we are ready for instruction by the teachers on the higher
this medium of mind we are drawn to other persons and material, which come into
the outer manifestation once the call has been sent out in prayer or meditation
and you know of their present existence. We
are not alone, for our souls and our minds are not isolated.
In the inner realm, or the Mind of God, all are connected to the one
great reality: the One Great Sentient Mind of God.
It is thus that our intuitions reach us from the great
super-subconscious, passing into the conscious, out into the thinking or
conscious realm. Instinct, on the
other hand, comes out of the subconscious itself from the memory of nature and
the past memories of the soul.
of its retentive nature in the sense of the holding of vibration and the
relative relationship of all that has been or exists now, the Cosmic
Subconscious or what is usually termed Akashic Records -- can be contacted and
read by those who have developed it, those who have the aspect of the spiritual
sight, or have had the veil removed from the Self.
Thus it is that the individual's past life and experience may be read,
even for the many previous lifetimes. This is difficult for most people because
it requires complete removal of the mind itself when one is receiving the
the human body we have what is called the pituitary body, or gland, which acts
as a sub- transmitting station through which cosmic thoughts are relayed to the
centers low in the frame that they may be correlated with other experiences and
things. We are conscious of similar
things. It is considered that the
moon symbolizes the pituitary body because of its reflective nature and is
sometimes pictured as a rolled-up scroll of all that has been written, and it is
associated with the element of water because of its psychic reaction.
of the most useful ways of picturing our own subconscious mind is to think of it
as a tilled and fertile field which every moment is receiving seeds dropped from
the conscious mind. As you think,
speak and visualize, so do you sow and so shall you reap.
If you have feeling and desire attached to the thought here, the law of
Karma works as surely as the function of cause and effect in action but more
subtly. The out-pictured world in
which you live and move is the result of many combined words and thoughts and
imaged pictures with you carelessly or knowingly drop into the soil of the past.
is like an orchard being harvested; some fruit is good and some, perhaps, is
not. Dwell on the good and joyful --
emphasize and magnify it and give thanks to God continually, not just because
the past produced good fruit but so that each thought of thanksgiving...though
it brings each kind word...though it brings a rebuff today...will bear in time,
unless the weeds of resentment of the rebuff outnumber or outweigh the good.
subjective mind of man, unlike the objective mind, is the reasoning mind and
reasons only deductively. It has
ability to reason in no other way. There is a good purpose behind this for it
has one mission in life, that mission is to obey orders and to do as it is told
or inspired to do by the soul, for it has charge of involuntary actions.
law of suggestion works through the subconscious, for suggestion is a very
subtle command, request, a wish or action of law of the subjective mind
transmitted to the objective mind. The subjective mind has perfect memory -- it
is a complete storehouse of facts and experiences, well protected yet easily
reached by the objective. It is like a vault with separate
entrances for every field of knowledge.
Each fact enters and leaves by the same door -- let out, as taught in
psychology, by a thought that plows a pathway of discharge through the mind by
which it ever after tends to escape.
subconscious mind actually is more impressed with the personality of the
individual in his last life than by the personality in his new body in this
incarnation, because the personality of this life is being formed now and much
of it is in the blood and the flesh.
for the term Akasha or Akashic Records: The
word Akasha is taken from the Sanskrit word meaning, "primary
substance" or "that out of which all things were and are formed."
They are the records maintained in the Universal Mind and are the forces of the
Spirit or Universal Intelligence which is directing the Spirit.
we can say the Akashic Records are the indelible or eternal record of the
delicate or Divine Mind, containing the knowledge of the past, present and
future. They are not material
records or written accounts, but they are the divine consciousness of past or
