The subconscious and the unconscious is much more powerful than you think. I find it amazing how anybody can dispute such thought processes. If you are not aware of how you think or feel, how can you make positive or negative judgements about your own actions and behaviors as well as any other person? For example, people may claim to not be racist yet their subconscious associations may indicate otherwise (http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2008/10/12/AR2008101201873.html?sub=AR). Or people may claim that money or power doesn't matter to them yet rigorous experiments indicate otherwise (http://www.epjournal.net/wp-content/uploads/EP06603612.pdf). Or people may claim that physical attractiveness does't matter when getting a job yet I could have sworn that I learned it does matter in business management when I attended the university (http://www.hofstra.edu/pdf/ORSP_Shahani-Denning_Spring03.pdf).

God say's "For I know the thoughts and plans that I have for you."
His plans are for goodness and mercy.
Your subconscious is known for obtaining for yourself the options.
God's song; "I'm more than just an option means there is more to life than just haveing."

My view is that when it comes to understanding consciousness types it’s all about awareness.Self needs to be aware of the consciousness types.Awareness is so important.One needs to be aware rather than unaware that one “toggles” between 2 off consciousness types i.e.in synch or out of synch.One shouldn’t just let this happen automatically all the time.One should take CONTROL of the consciousness types.
