Book Summary

The conscious, unconscious, and subconscious mind has been defined and expounded on providing readers with the knowledge to differentiate between the three. The book acknowledges that these three parts of the mind are often confused and misinterpreted by people who have limited understanding of the matter. “The Art of Reprogramming Your Subconscious” contrasts the humans from other species that evolved, citing the intellectual development in humans as a significant difference. The book elaborates that even though the conscious, unconscious, and subconscious mind may seem to work separately, they all contribute significantly to the way people behave and carry out different activities.

Conscious mind

This is defined as the part of the mind that plays the role of making logical decisions. This is based on the fact that the conscious mind is the part that is developed through the acquisition of knowledge. The book specifies that the conscious mind is programmed through the things we learned during childhood and the genetics of our ancestors. The book further elaborates that the conscious mind uses stored memories to make decisions from time to time. A good example provided is the scenario where we cross the roads. This illustrates how the conscious mind. The book presents a connection between the conscious, subconscious, and unconscious mind in that skills developed progress from the former to the latter.

Subconscious mind

The subconscious mind has been defined as the emotional part. It is also defined as the “lower self,” responsible for organizing received information, mental patterns, habits, and memorizing patterns. The book further explains that the subconscious mind is responsible for neuronal bonds developed towards certain people or things that influence our lives. “The Art of Reprogramming Your Subconscious” utilizes several examples to illustrate how the subconscious mind influences people’s lives. One of the examples used is the explanation of why the bond between a mother and child is so strong, to the point that it becomes challenging for her to let go. Because the subconscious mind takes a significant part of the book’s information, each relevant detail has been brought out clearly in the book to relate it with the other two parts of the mind.

Unconscious mind

The unconscious mind has been defined as part of the mind responsible for managing physiological functions in the body. The book describes this part of the mind as the most primitive, with the role of controlling functions such as breathing, reflex responses as well as awareness of activities that an individual partakes in from day today. “The Art of Reprogramming Your Subconscious” illustrates that the unconscious mind comprises the more significant part of the brain. The book compares this part of the mind to the submerged part of the iceberg that takes the most significant space and plays the most prominent role. An example by Bernadino Del Boca has been featured in this part of the book, elaborating further on what he unconscious mind is and how its functionality is connected to the conscious and subconscious mind.

“The Art of Reprogramming Your Subconscious” elaborates on the different brain waves that play an essential role in controlling different activities that we indulge in. The waves include delta, zeta, alpha, and beta waves. The book elaborates each of these waves in detail, describing their essence and necessity in the human mind. Readers can distinguish these brain waves as the book explains each of them according to their significance. For example, the alpha waves have been described as the higher frequency waves that develop when a child gets older and begins to analyze different scenarios or options before making a decision. The explanation of these brain waves helps enhance a better understanding of the subconscious mind, elaborating the difference in frequency strength to determine the state of the brain.

The relation between the subconscious and unconscious

The book elaborates on the relationship between the subconscious and unconscious parts of the brain. The unconscious part has been described as what individuals know of, where we store what we want. On the other hand, the subconscious part of the brain has been described as the part that an individual is not able to control. “The Art of Reprogramming Your Subconscious” further elaborates on the subconscious mind, explaining some of its specific functions, including the body and mental. The book emphasizes that the subconscious needs to be treated like a child, training it to facilitate an individual’s growth.


The book also highlights the main functionality of the subconscious mind, Memory. Memory plays a vital role in the different actions that we get involved in from day to day. For example, an individual smoothly rides his/her bicycle because of Memory. Compared to how the computer memory works, “The Art of Reprogramming Your Subconscious” illustrates how the brain stores an individual’s details based on his/her characteristics and features. The book explains how the Memory works, debunking the thought that Memory is just space where details are stored in the brain.

In the second chapter of the book, readers can distinguish one of the critical relations between the subconscious and the conscious mind. “The Art of Reprogramming Your Subconscious” elaborates that for the subconscious mind to retrieve information, it should have gone through the conscious mind first. This, in turn, provides a basis that explains the thinking or recalling the process.

Reprograming of the subconscious

The book develops on the subconscious’s reprogramming, providing details of different factors and the processes that the brain goes through. To begin with, the book develops in communication with the unconscious mind. The concept of paradigms is introduced in this chapter, elaborating on the possibility that we can communicate with the unconscious mind. A paradigm is defined as the different habits, ideas, and beliefs that an individual alludes to from him/her childhood. As described in the book, these paradigms play an essential role in shaping the unconscious mind.

The book expounds on three different ways in which we can reprogram the unconscious. These include repetition and writing, subliminal audio, and the use of a vision board. Each of these methods has been elaborated on to explain best how an individual can reprogram the unconscious mind.

Reprograming the subconscious has been covered in the next chapter, as the book reminds the readers about the connections between the subconscious and conscious mind. The book illustrates that eh subconscious mind takes orders from the conscious mind. “Everything that the conscious mind accepts as true is also accepted by the subconscious mind and also realizes it” (p. 42). The book explains the different characteristics of the subconscious mind. First, the subconscious mind has been described as being suggestible, literal, unable to analyze, and lack of sense of humor. This provides the reader with an overview of what it takes to reprogram the subconscious mind.

The book points out what programming is, enhancing the understanding of readers even further. By defining programming as a set of messages sent to the subconscious mind, readers can have a clear picture and forget other meanings that the word “program” bears. It can be done through the different ways explained in the book. These include the use of enhanced statements for the subconscious and creating and use of Mp3. The book features a list of several statements that an individual can enhance to reprogram the subconscious mind. The book discourages negativity during this process, as it is more likely to bear negativity. For example, readers are discouraged from using the word “not” to complete these affirmations. That way, they are capable of preserving the energy required to achieve what they want in life.

Positive affirmations

The book elaborates on what an affirmation is, debunking the assumption that it is a statement. The book describes that an affirmation is a simple question that is unanswered or resembles a puzzle. To illustrate this, the book cites the example of the difficult experiences in life that people fear going through or even surrender. These are essential questions that have not been answered yet. Therefore, this implies that once an individual is in a position to answer the question, he/she will successfully go through that phase of life. Several examples of affirmations have been included in the book, “I love my job” and “I am very attractive!!” All the examples provided give an individual a boost in confidence that they are indeed capable of living better.
