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, http://www.thesecretofdeliberatecreation.com/dcshaudio6min.html he also explains a little more about this on this website: http://www.anthonybasich.com/mind/the-saboteur-within-why-you-do-not-have-what-you-really-want/
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

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.
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.
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.
