The first one is theconscious mind, which is in charge of all the daily processes andthoughts we are aware of and capable of controlling. However, thispart of our mind is just the tip of the iceberg. About 90% of what weconsider our mind is our subconscious mind. This part acts onits own, creating decisions which impact us even though we are notaware of it, nor capable of comprehending it.
Our subconscious mind is a great andunimaginable thing. It listens to our conscious mind and takesorders, being capable only of accepting them and putting them to use.Also, upon imagining things with our conscious mind, our subconsciousmind grants us visualization. This way, when you imagine the sourtaste of a bright yellow lemon affecting the tip of your senses, you can feel this taste even though there is no lemon present in yourmouth. The subconscious mind accepts everything as real. So, if weprogram it to be more relaxed and control our feelings, making themmore positive, we are bound to become a more positive person.
