Levels of Consciousness
There are three levels of consciousness that play a role in psychic experiences. The conscious, the unconscious, and the Universal Mind can either work with or against each other, and each person must learn to balance the messages received from these three minds.
The conscious mind consists of only 10 percent of the total mind. It is in charge of reasoning, analyzing, and making critical decisions. In order for the conscious mind to be efficient, it needs to be able to maintain an objective viewpoint. This, however, is often very hard for the conscious mind to do, because it is constantly receiving input from the unconscious and the Universal Mind.
When the unconscious mind takes control over the conscious mind, the individual's ability to make critical decisions is severely impaired. The result is often an action that is regretted later, when the conscious mind regains its objective perspective.
The unconscious mind is the storage facility. It retains and recalls memories that are sent up to the conscious mind at a time when it perceives that an action is needed. When this occurs, the conscious mind often accepts the suggestion and automatically sets it into motion.
The Universal Mind is the place where spontaneous insights come from. It is a direct link with the history of your soul and your guidance system, which keeps you in line with your life map or life purpose.
The Universal Mind also includes knowledge of your karma. In Buddhism and Hinduism, the word “karma” is used to relate the actions of one lifetime to each other and to make sense of how these affect subsequent lives. Unresolved karma can manifest itself through the Universal Mind, presenting an opportunity for the conscious mind to bring about resolution. You may receive intuitive warnings of possible confrontations related to karma.
