Subconscious Mind Power - Automatic Writing Beyond the Edges of the Ice Berg

Updated on July 27, 2012

Most our own self is also below...the level of consciousness

We know an ice berg has far more below the surface than on top
We know an ice berg has far more below the surface than on top

Welcome to Subconscious Mind Power - Beyond the Edges of the Ice Berg

I have been able to take automatic writing for over forty years. I learned how to do it. You can too. If you want to. If it doesn’t frighten you. The main proviso: an open mind . Many don’t have such. Let’s hope you’re not one of these.

So what is automatic writing?

What is needed is an open mind

It is a way in which other people, both living and dead, can be communicated with via our own subconscious minds through writing or typing. You see, although the way we interpret our reality through our five senses purports that we are all separate, discrete beings, this is not true in its ultimate sense. Humanity is one. To present an analogy I’ve used many times before, imagine an iceberg. Better, imagine a sea on which are floating a number of ice bergs. Then next, imagine that you are one of these floating lumps of frozen water.

Let us imagine we are a lump of frozen water

Next, let us imagine that our senses are in the top and outer part of this ice-berg we identify as our self. That is, our eyes are above the water. We can see other berg’s ‘over there’ whilst we are over here. They are seemingly separate from us. We know we have most of our own particular self, 88% of it, belong the water line. This is where the greater part of us resides. We don’t know what’s going down there but we accept that as our personal subconscious.

An ice berg, as we know, is made up of frozen water. And what is frozen water? Ordinary liquid water in solid form. And why is it different from liquid water? Well, it’s vibration has slowed down. It has a slower frequency and longer wavelength than it’s liquid counterpart.

The only difference is the rate of vibration

Ah, but what are these seemingly so-called separate ice bergs floating in? - Water, of course. So you could say that the only difference is the frequency rate. One is slow, one is faster to the point where it seems to be entirely different.

Subconscious Mind Power - Separation is an illusion

Our minds are like that. We appear to have a mind of our own, limited to ourselves. This is not the case. We can be likened to an ice-berg mind floating in an endless ocean of the same stuff it is made of. Separation is the illusion. All minds are linked. Carl Gustav Jung’s “Collective Unconscious” is not just a theory. It is a reality. Only our conditioning keeps us from this knowledge. Only our disbelief in things greater than our egocentric thinking. Be willing and you will open yourself up to knowing. As Wayne W. Dyer says, “You’ll see it when you believe it.” And “Change your thinking and you’ll change your life.” These are truths.

If you want to learn more just let me know

This hub is not the place to go into the in-and-outs of automatic writing. But I will say this: I’ve taken down at least a million words via this method. If you want to learn about it, then there are ways to do this. And if you’d like me to write more about automatic writing in subsequent hubs, just let me know.

I hope that you enjoyed Subconscious Mind Power - Beyond the Edges of the Ice Berg.

Keep smiling,

    Its an extremely wonderful experience for me reading your hub on Subconscious Mind Power and your trying it up with Jung's Collective Unconscious. I am a great fan of you and Jung!

    I have written some related tidbits about the oneness of all beings in my hub, the inexplicability of that oneness with God and the concept of the All in the One.

    To take it to a broader perspective, I have intuited that we are not only connected through the collective unconscious but the Collective Conscious of non-physical beings that has been written about by Esther and Jerry Hicks in their Abraham book series. You see, their series have also been written through automatic typing via Esther's fingertips.

    It is a delicious experience for me tying up all these three things together:

    1. Reading of an Abraham book

    2. Reading of this wonderful hub of yours, which makes the oneness of everything easier to picture

    3. My writing of my most recent hub:

    And synchronicity is one of things I cherish most in this spiritual journey.

    Thank you, Tom!


    I would greatly appreciate if you honor your promise: "If you want to learn more just let me know":

    May I ask what are the pitfalls that you allude to?

    Thanks in advance!

    Mus - The key is having an open mind. I expect many people have closed minds. They won't give it a chance. "This is all bull," they might say. And with such a attitude, their beliefs will prove them right. Be willing. Don't think about what YOU want to write. Allow! You might only receive a few scriggles, or maybe a few simple words that don't mean anything. But it'll be a start.

    My advice: read up on other people's experiences on automatic writing. There are a lot of pitfalls and, if not wary, you can get into a lot of trouble.

    Powerful hub here. Our subconscious minds are within us and pretty strong too. If embraced well, will prove to serve some great writings. Hub up.

    This is a good analogy. The sub-conscience is absolutely fascinating. We know almost nothing about it.
