Did you know our unconscious mind can also communicate with us? Here are 5 signs your unconscious mind is trying tell you something.
Our mind is a den of mystery. Scientists have not yet been able to fully decode it. Yet, our deepest thoughts and insights are a product of our unconscious mind.
We are aware of our conscious mind and tend to think that it is everything there is. However, there are times when we are signaled by our unconscious to pursue actions we should be undertaking.
Here are 5 signs your unconscious mind is trying to tell you something
Sign 1. Sudden Insights
Your intuition is a powerful tool. And the thing that it mostly leads to are insights that occur in striking flashes. These insights are extremely ephemeral, but are powerful enough to convey spiritual messages that leave lasting impacts on our lives.
You’d never know when you’re going to have insights. They are unpredictable and sudden. Their frequency is not something you can measure. And it mostly occurs when you least expect it. Insights are messages from our unconscious rendering us powerful revelations, thus persuading us to act accordingly.
Insights are mainly associated with deep thinkers and introverts, and often end up guiding their lives in directions least traveled by others. Thus the unconscious mind gives us flashes of these mysterious spiritual insights, signalling us to follow them to what we’re destined for.
Sign 2. Fleeting Thoughts
The mind is a treasure trove of thoughts. Some are heavy and impactful, while others are just momentary flicks. But there are times when we have no control over our thoughts. Our mind is subject to randomness at these moments.
We find ourselves just scrolling through random thoughts just as we do with our social media timelines. The only difference being, when browsing the internet, we’re in control of ourselves, but here, we have no control over our thoughts.
Our minds just keep getting bombarded by millions of thoughts that come and go in seconds. In these situations, our unconscious mind is trying to say that we are emotionally perplexed and that we need to take hold of our lives.
Sign 3. Recurring Dreams
The ancients often used to consider dreams as visions sent by the divine. They theorized that if you’re having the same dream over and over again, then you’re being communicated by your guardian angel regarding important events that are going to take place in your life.
Whatever their hypotheses were, we now know that it is our unconscious that is trying to convey signals that we keep ignoring. When we are awake, we tend to bypass these hints, that’s why the unconscious tries to make up for it by showing them in our dreams.
It can be some unfulfilled desires or things that are taking a toll on your health and that you should be careful of. The unconscious basically attempts to make you aware of things that need to be addressed on an emotional or physical level. It is not wise to ignore these subtle signals.
Sign 4. Physical Symptoms
Dreams are not the only method via which our unconscious mind tries to communicate with us. Sometimes our body acts as physical conduits for these signals. You’ll find your body displaying signs or functioning in unusual ways.
These signs can be either internal or external or both, depending on the circumstances. External signs can include chronic lower back pain, headaches, abdominal bloating, neck and shoulder pain, etc. Internal signs include perpetual fatigue, energy drainage, sudden drop in energy levels, exhaustion, etc.
All these are subtle indications of personal or work related stress that your unconscious mind wants you to address on an immediate basis.
Sign 5. Reduced Or Lack Of Free Will
Have you ever come across times when you want to do something but lack the sheer will to carry it out? You have been subject to reduced level of free will. Free will is defined as the mental state vital for executing something you deeply desire.
You might think that the desire itself is enough and that every time you have pursued your dreams, it was the desire alone which drove things to fulfillment. But free will is the matrix that acts as a prime mover of these dreams and desires. Whatever you aspire to become or get done, you need to have a strong free will to make things happen.
