And if there is how do we bypass it , do we even need to bypass it to manifest the things we desire . I use the word things in the broadest possible sense :-)

I have always learned that the Gatekeeper to the Subconscious Mind is your Conscious Mind. This is why when you are supposed to say affirmations or visualize your desired outcome, you are supposed to get your body into a relaxed state which automatically is supposed to bring your mind at least into the alpha state, at which time your conscious mind is being pushed aside and whatever you do with visualizing or affirmations at this time goes straight into your subconscious mind without the conscious mind interfering in the process.

This is also being explained by Dr. Joseph Murphy, the Power of your Subconscious Mind, and more recently by Dr. Robert Anthony, you can sign up for his 45 min free recording on How to Silence your Inner Gate Keeper here, he also explains a little more about this on this website:

I have listened to that recording and it is quite interesting. I am also considering about possibly buying his program about the Power of Deliberate Creation with Hypnosis, but have not decided yet.

But, in a nutshell, the gatekeeper is your conscious mind, not letting the information you are trying to convey to your subconscious mind, go through to it.

Moreless, the only way to reach your subconscious is by either 1. changing your brainwaves through relaxing your body and thereby changing your brainwaves or using brainwave entrainment audios, which change your brainwave quicker and for the duration of the audio, or 2. Hypnosis, or 3. Repetition of either affirmations or stating your goal (which can take a long time before it takes) 4. Meditation, if you are able to change your brainwaves while meditating.

If you are not at least in the Alpha State, then your Conscious Mind is still active at work and in the way for your purpose

@starlight Charles Haanel agrees with this also in his Master Key System. The conscious mind is the analytical part of you. That part allows worldly events to enter, by accepting and focusing your attention.

yes there is a gate keeper in you it is you(spirit, light). but you as flesh are not always conscient of your self. do not forget that men only use 5% to 10% of is mind power in conscient state. so how much aware are you?

you should read this bible quote. and know that that light that is you can guide you if you really listen to it.

if you are convinced that you are a guide for the blind, a light for those who are in the dark,

This is the verdict: Light has come into the world, but men loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil.

so if you are not even able to know your self(inside, the light the spirit) you are walking in darkness.

But if your eyes are bad, your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the light within you is darkness, how great is that darkness!

that is also why jesus said this:

1.Jesus said, "Damn the flesh that depends on the soul. Damn the soul that depends on the flesh."

if i would be you i would start to meditate. to know who you are it is a lot better then just to manifesting things.

so be the light that you can be experience and enjoy.

Thank you for your answer white tiger , appreciated :-)

Just by the way, it's way over 10%. You can go up to 30% of usage of brain at time. Also, while at any given moment on certain parts of brain may be active, we use 100% of brain. In other words, there is no area of brain that if damaged, does not lead to loss of some ability.

(23 Jul '12, 07:08) CalonLan

well canonlan take a look at this: It's often said, most human beings utilize only 3% - 5% of their mind power. Geniuses like Einstein might have pushed it slightly further, to a 10%. It has been proven that people use only about 5% of their mind capacity. The rest of the other 95% usually remained untap ...


(23 Jul '12, 16:41) white tiger

where did you get your info Canonlan? it is the first time i ear about more then 10 percent proven in study.

(23 Jul '12, 16:45) white tiger

@White Tiger, tv series mythbusters - Humans only use 10% of their available brain capacity. - For a more representative image,the Build Team visited UCSF to do a magnetoencephalogram study.Tory took the tests this time,resulting in an overall activity of 35%.In a third trial,this one involving a functional MRI scan,Tory registered 15% while at rest,but 30% as he told a story with the intent of activating as many areas of his brain as possible.Based on these totals,..

(24 Jul '12, 01:58) CalonLan

...the team declared the myth busted.. Now there would be a difference in my eye between brain capacity and mind power. Brain capacity can be measured and if we're referring to that, than I'm more inclined to believe current statistics than a hundred years old ones. If we were talking about mind power - since there's no way to measure that, nobody can spit out any % of its usage. As mind power would be different for each person anyway depending on his ability to use power of mind.

(24 Jul '12, 02:01) CalonLan

To me it's like a difference between a "fuel tank" and "fuel".. While fuel tank or brain capacity always remains the same at one given moment...mind power or fuel can have various density, thus having various levels of power. Fuel tank doesn't care about density of the fuel that's poured into it, as it can contain anything within its size.

(24 Jul '12, 02:07) CalonLan

interesting Canonlan thanks for the answer. i have provided a link that you might like: we are talking of the mind usage at the conscient level. not of all the part of the brain conscient and uncounscient that are activated. but anny way even at 30% it is not that much.

(24 Jul '12, 02:32) white tiger

being observer and to not judge very good tip from that site.

(24 Jul '12, 02:44) white tiger

will also ad that all the son and daughter of men must be lifted up born of water and spirit to go above. then they will know the truth. but that door is narrow and fee will enter it.

(24 Jul '12, 03:00) white tiger

@white tiger, thanks I'll have a look at that.

I learned the answer to this in Psych 101. There are many filtering processes to what we perceive to be true, and this indicates to me that there must be some sort of Gatekeeper to the subconscious.

Say four people witness a car accident. It is a fact that the accident happened, but for each witness, it appears a bit different. The driver of the car that struck the other car says that the other car pulled out in front of him. The driver of the second car says that the first car ran the light. The two people on the side of the road cannot remember if the traffic light was red, green or yellow, and one of them actually does not remember the colors of the car. But both people remember that the injured drivers were bleeding and hurt, and tried to help as best as they could until the officials arrived.

Now for the subconscious. Neither driver wants to be guilty; they are afraid. This brings into play our Gatekeeper. The first driver says the light was green. He insists that the second car ran his light. The second driver says that the light turned for him. The witnesses did not notice the lights, but one of the drivers was acting angry, and they subconsciously side with the nicer driver.

The truth is that this shows that perception and reality are two different things; it also shows me that there must be some sort of Gatekeeper in the mind. The brain is so complex that there may be much, much more going on than what we think there is.

One thing I do know is this: I repressed entire chunks of my childhood, and have been in therapy and so on, trying to sort out what happened to me. I know that I have a mechanism that protected me so I could "function" during this time. That mechanism could be called "The Gatekeeper", at least to me.

LoL. It's interesting in a way to see how you bounced from 'I don't know' state to 'I know now' back to 'I don't know' again. You answered Starlight's questions. You identified the 'gatekeeper' which is rather unhelpful idea to call it 'gatekeeper' because of its connotations and the fact that this gatekeeper isn't really keeping guard at the gate of subconscious, but rather it's like a ferry that helps to cross from conscious to subconscious state of mind.

(24 Jul '12, 05:19) CalonLan

I could tell indeed, but I believe that we better understand things when we figure it out ourselves not have them suggested to us by others. If you really want to understand it, read your post again Jai. The answer is there, in between the lines. ;-)

(24 Jul '12, 05:21) CalonLan

And I must say I finally truly understood it here from your post, even though I knew the theory which was suggested to me since more than a year ago.

(24 Jul '12, 05:32) CalonLan

@CalonLan- Hope this edit suits you better...

(25 Jul '12, 02:02) Jaianniah

@Jai, lol, I didn't mean you should edit your post because of me. Alright I'll make it real simple and post answer to this. Although I still believe just by reading it people might not benefit that much as if they realized it, your post was already perfectly written for that purpose.

FAITH is the head chemist of the mind. When FAITH is blended with the vibration of thought, the subconscious mind instantly picks up the vibration, translates it into its spiritual equivalent, and transmits it to Infinite Intelligence, as in the case of prayer.

The emotions of FAITH, LOVE, and SEX are the most powerful of all the major positive emotions. When the three are blended, they have the effect of "coloring" the vibration of thought in such a way that it instantly reaches the subconscious mind, where it is changed into its spiritual equivalent, the only form that induces a response from Infinite Intelligence.

Love and faith are psychic, related to the spiritual side of man. Sex is purely biological, and related only to the physical. The mixing, or blending, of these three emotions has the effect of opening a direct line of communication between the finite, thinking mind of man, and Infinite Intelligence ~ Napoleon Hill

The point is, for a thought to enter your subconscious mind, it has to be mixed with an emotion. In Jai's post's example it was FEAR.
