The unconscious mind is responsible for regulating the body; it keeps your heart beating, keeps your breathing going, and your legs walking, etc. It understands those processes, those procedures, and it’s got everything ticking over, and it doesn’t need to make you aware it’s doing it, it’s got it all in the bag and taking care of for you. All that remains is for you to make decisions for the remaining 5%, to do this the decision is brought into your conscious awareness, it makes it known if there’s something you need to decide on, and then you’ll proactively make a decision.

An excellent example of the conscious and the unconscious at work is if you work in a job where you wear a set uniform each day. The chances are when it comes to you having to get up in the morning and get dressed, and your unconscious mind is going to decide what it is you need to wear, with no necessity for you to think about it. Alternatively, if you work in a job where you get to select what you wear, then this becomes more of a conscious decision. There’s a point in the day at which you’ve got to think about what is it you want to wear today; a decision made consciously rather than unconsciously.

How does your mind make all of those decisions on your behalf? Imagine a catalogue, a rule book, or a guidance pack. The unconscious says, “Here’s the operation manual. Here’s exactly what we do in this type of situation.” It does this based on processes it’s learned over time.
Unlike regulating our heartbeat or breathing, which are processes passed to us genetically where we know exactly what to do there; there are other processes learnt over time. An excellent example of this is brushing your teeth. When you get up in the morning, you go into the bathroom, grab your toothbrush and start brushing your teeth. Maybe even the trigger to begin brushing your teeth is unconscious, not something you think about, but you know when you walk into the bathroom in the morning, you grab your toothbrush, and you start brushing. As the toothbrush goes into your mouth, your unconscious mind goes, “Hey, think about something else, maybe the day ahead of you.” Maybe this is the point of the day where you start thinking about what you’re going to wear, but the one thing you don’t need to do is think about how to brush your teeth. The reason you don’t have to think about how to brush your teeth is your mind has this covered for you, it’s a process it’s seen numerous times and has learnt it well and automated it. .
