Sometimes I feel like I'm actively battling with my subconscious, which keeps trying to think things that my conscious doesn't agree with.
Generally it's just drawing attention to concepts I don't want to bother with, unusual first reactions to events [even though I can realize I'm being abnormal and correct my behavior, the initial impulse was abnormal], or mild temper issues [entirely in my head, from the outside I have amazing self control under stress].
If it helps explain, I mean I will have a thought in a response to something, then think wait, that isn't my real response. Why did I even think that?
But sometimes it can be a bit ridiculous, and I wonder if it's just me or if abnormal thoughts aren't actually that abnormal? A relatively 'neutral' example of this would be having graphic thoughts of hurting someone who commits certain heinous crimes. Of course these thoughts don't really concern me because they're well in 'check'. But I wonder what their implications are, as far as my psyche is concerned.
Any related thoughts / observations / experiences?
You are asking the questions that will open a new doorway of realization.
You can't teach someone to ask this question because it is an un-natural way to observe one's own consciousness, and when you explain to people what's going on, they get scared and defensive.
Your curiosity will automatically lead you to new realizations according to your curiosity.
Ask yourself "Am I the thinker of my thoughts, or do all my thoughts occur to me?"
And the next (more important) question is
"If my thoughts occur to me, then who is thinking these thoughts?"
You can also ask
"Do I exist within my thoughts or can my existence remain in the absence of it?"
See where you get with these ideas.
I'm not sure where you stand on the nature of "governments", "democracy" and the "banking system", but chances are you do understand that there is a surface concept on these subjects and then there is this "other side" where you discover that things are not at all what you thought they were.
The same can be said of consciousness.
It is not what we think it is.
It is something completely different.
But you can't say that to somebody and expect them to take you seriously.
But you have got to that point by your own effort and you are probably ready to realize the "other side" to consciousness.
Let me put it this way, when you figure it out, you will know that true freedom exists outside of consciousness where you "choose" to exist within consciousness as you need to.
As you ask these questions watch the MATRIX series and try to figure out what it's all about.
I thought that it might me a good idea to add a link to an old answer I put down here that got me a -1 vote because it deals with the EXACT POINT that I was trying to make with that answer.
I realized that either my answer scared most people or they just didn't get what I was hinting at.
Either way, that answer and this answer are dealing with the same subject, and I think you are brave enough to ask the question in this manner.
Have you noticed that evil and destructive thoughts have a tendency to keep us in a loop as if we are somehow addicted to them? That is exactly what is happening in that moment. It is a form of addiction.
If you study addiction you will realize that all addictions stimulate the pleasure centre.
So now you can put the two ideas together and come to your own conclusions about the nature of suffering and evil tendencies.
So the next question is who is doing this?
Is it us by choice or are we being manipulated to use our consciousness this way?
Are we un-willing thinkers of the thoughts that occur to us?
That's the question you are asking and you are at the point of choosing if you are going to swallow the red pill or the blue pill.
In the MATRIX they wake up to a rather dark and dreary reality that is actually the "real" reality when they were un-plugged from the computer reality.
In the matrix the characters were kept in the Matrix through a connection behind their head that was plugged into the "system" so to speak.
We are addictively plugged into a reality of continuous thought, which is imposed upon us through an addiction and pleasure response mechanism.
Through this method we are un-willingly co-creating our physical reality in a manner that was not exactly our choice (within recorded history).
We are (supposedly) approaching a point in history where we finally get the chance to "un-plug" from this "imposed" mechanism of "in voluntary thought" to a situation where we are free to choose our thoughts, and therefore our corresponding dimensionally co-mingled reality of our choosing.
We can finally choose peace as a choice within our consciousness and stay within it naturally without being hijacked by another mechanism to return to constant thoughts of war.
But to learn to do that each of us must begin by asking the types of question that you are asking yourself right now.
And initially as we learn to un-plug from this addictive and pleasurable activity of constant thought, the alternative will be quite bleak and dreary.
So it is up to you to decide if you really want to "wake up" or stay in the matrix.
If you carefully listen to the information around you, such as from Bashar, you will know that this process of "un-plugging" will happen over some time, so that people will get a chance to adjust their mind from an involuntary thinker to a voluntary thinker.
Only the realization will hit you like a ton of bricks and you will feel hopeless for a while, but you will get past it and start to work on yourself.
There is much we have to learn before we become conscious co-creators of our reality.
And much of it is going to be difficult if one is completely locked into an opinion based existence within reality.
But thanks for your question, so that I could give this answer :)
Only if you believe it's the real you..... once you can separate your "true" higher self from all the noise of the subconscious beliefs it need not be scary any more.

If we see these as hindrances to be fought against then yes they would be so, however had we to see these as opportunity to get clear then not so much so.
See these as opportune moments in time to say, "This is in my mind. I don't like this." You have done this much, but now imagine these thoughts of violence forming into a demon then cast it out of your body and blow it up with a lightning bolt you imagine from your fingers as you say "In Jesus name be gone!" You imagine you just shot the thought form that held those violent thoughts, or vanished it if you prefer. Either way every time this happens you are getting rid of these thought forms, you are as well getting rid of the creative thought, or reactionary thought behind the thought form.
If we deny the thoughts and lock them away, here is a scene of what could happen. This has happened many times to people. There was a kid that was picked on at school for who knows how long, until something snapped and he brought a gun to school and shot everyone. That was terrible! It was in the news years ago. Others snap too! Assault of precinct 13, a guy on the roof shooting everyone! Going postal, the post office man that snapped. All of this has happened and unfortunately will continue, as long as that shadow self is ignored and hidden away like a bad boy told to sit in the corner with a dunce hat on. That bad boy will eventually yell, "NO! I WILL BE HEARD!!!!!!" Then you have a problem and lose control.
Recognize you have the thought, feel the thought, release the thought, and destroy the thought. This also holds for any negative thought, poverty, sickness whatever you want to get rid of. By destroying the thought you are not locking it away you are annihilating it gone from you.
if you are councious about them are they really subcouncious? if you think that is weird wait when you will have the though and action of other people around you to deal with. you will discover a world full of false center(ego). you will tell them thinks that are obvious to you but they do not want to see or ear. but in the end it does not matter it is their choice. you can only choose for your self. enter the narrow gate because wide is the gate of destruction and many enter through it. experience and enjoy.
no, it is our future
