Simple Guidelines For Candle Burning
The Subconsciousness and Belief
by Deja Allison (2006)
The psychological basis of most ritual performance is the connection to the emotional body. The subconscious mind can not and does not distinguish between 'actually is' and 'what it thinks is'. It makes no judgment. It does not discern or weigh evidence. It accepts all input like a filtering house for all data. It will file, categorize, and label experiences from all 5 senses.
It will be altered to any danger, or anything that has left an impression on or pattern from a previous experience. To the subconscious EVERYTHING is real. This is the seat of phobias, fears and where habits form, but it is also the place of love, compassion and hope. If you want to ever change an old pattern of behavior, the subconscious is the area you must appeal. There is where change is formed and made.
