Think of brain like a hard drive on a computer, it’s more of a storage device. Mind however is the thinking force, the consciousness experiencing life in the now.
How to think positive tip #9: Don’t confuse mind and brain for they are NOT the same thing.
A brain injury can alter the way someone thinks, or how they perceive the world. A brain injury can even alter their ability to think at all. Mind however is much stronger and can heal and grow even after a brain injury. The brain is merely a storage device that stores the mind.
Our bodies are designed to heal, so does the mind. The brain is made of cells, like the rest of the body. The brain can heal, regenerate and grow new cells.
We can’t change the past, but we can change the future. We can’t go back and change things that have already happened, but we can change the way we think about them and how we react to them.
The mind is incredibly powerful and can be used for good or for bad. The mind can also be used to create or to destroy if you think about it a little. It all depends on how we use it.
We can use our mind to create happiness or to create suffering. It’s up to us.
What does being mindful mean?
You may stumble upon the word “mindful” a lot, however mindful is NOT the same as mindfulness. Mindful means to be present and be aware of the current moment. Most people are not mindful because they are not conscious of the fact that they are conscious. If you think about it, it’s a bit of a mouthful, isn’t it?
Mindfulness is the act of being mindful. It’s the realization that you are existing right now and that you are aware of it, and it’s also the realization that you are aware of the fact that you are aware of your consciousness.
The point is, your mind is the thinker, and your brain is the storehouse. Your mind creates your reality based on your thoughts, emotions, and beliefs, and your brain stores these memories, thoughts, and experiences.
The conscious mind is more like the part of the mind that is aware of the current moment and is capable of reason and logic. The subconscious mind is the part of the mind that stores our memories, experiences, and beliefs. The unconscious mind is the part of the mind that controls the autonomous nervous system, that controls the body’s unconscious functions such as breathing and the heartbeat.
The conscious mind is like the tip of the iceberg, while the subconscious and unconscious mind is like the iceberg beneath the surface, it is the part of the mind that stores memories, experiences, and beliefs. The subconscious mind is like a computer program that runs in the background and controls the body’s automatic functions.
The four levels of mind are the conscious mind, the subconscious mind, the unconscious mind, and the superconscious mind.
The conscious mind is the level of mind that is aware of what is happening in the present moment. It is the level of mind that you use when you are awake and aware of your surroundings.
The subconscious mind is the level of mind that is responsible for your automatic behaviors and thoughts. It is the level of mind that you use when you are not consciously thinking about what you are doing.
The unconscious mind is the level of mind that is responsible for your unconscious behaviors and thoughts. It is the level of mind that you use when you are not consciously aware of what you are doing.
The superconscious mind is the level of mind that is responsible for your spiritual experiences and thoughts. It is the level of mind that you use when you are in a state of meditation or prayer.
The superconscious mind is the part of the mind that is connected to the universal mind or the collective unconscious. The superconscious mind is like a library of all knowledge and wisdom. The superconscious mind is also known as the higher self, the divine mind, or the cosmic mind.
