Bessel van der Kolk
“As long as you keep secrets and suppress information, you are fundamentally at war with yourself…The critical issue is allowing yourself to know what you know. That takes an enormous amount of courage.”
Bessel A. van der Kolk, The Body Keeps the Score: Brain, Mind, and Body in the Healing of Trauma

Eric Micha'el Leventhal
“The closer you come to knowing that you alone create the world of your experience, the more vital it becomes for you to discover just who is doing the creating.”
Eric Micha'el Leventhal

Charles Dickens
“Such is the influence which the condition of our own thoughts, exercises, even over the appearance of external objects. Men who look on nature, and their fellow-men, and cry that all is dark and gloomy, are in the right; but the sombre colours are reflections from their own jaundiced eyes and hearts. The real hues are delicate, and need a clearer vision.”
Charles Dickens, Oliver Twist

“Everything is within your power,
and your power is within you.”
Janice Trachtman, Catching What Life Throws at You: Inspiring True Stories of Healing

P.G. Wodehouse
“A man's subconscious self is not the ideal companion. It lurks for the greater part of his life in some dark den of its own, hidden away, and emerges only to taunt and deride and increase the misery of a miserable hour.”
P.G. Wodehouse, The Adventures of Sally

Graham Greene
“So much in writing depends on the superficiality of one's days. One may be preoccupied with shopping and income tax returns and chance conversations, but the stream of the unconscious continues to flow undisturbed, solving problems, planning ahead: one sits down sterile and dispirited at the desk, and suddenly the words come as though from the air: the situations that seemed blocked in a hopeless impasse move forward: the work has been done while one slept or shopped or talked with friends.”
Graham Greene, The End of the Affair

T.F. Hodge
“Deep within, there is something profoundly known, not consciously, but subconsciously. A quiet truth, that is not a version of something, but an original knowing. What this, absolute, truth [identity] is may be none of our business…but it is there, guiding us along the path of greater becoming; a true awareness. It is so self-sustaining that our recognition of it is not required. We are offspring’s of such a powerfully divine force – Creator of all things known and unknown.”
T.F. Hodge, From Within I Rise: Spiritual Triumph Over Death and Conscious Encounters with "The Divine Presence"

“By means of personal experimentation and observation, we can discover certain simple and universal truths. The mind moves the body, and the body follows the mind. Logically then, negative thought patterns harm not only the mind but also the body. What we actually do builds up to affect the subconscious mind and in turn affects the conscious mind and all reactions.”
H.E. Davey, Japanese Yoga: The Way of Dynamic Meditation

Juan Rulfo
“Te cansarás primero que yo. Llegaré a donde quieres llegar antes que tú estés allí -dijo el que iba detrás de él-. Me sé de memoria tus intenciones, quién eres y de dónde eres y adónde vas. Llegaré antes que tú llegues.”
Juan Rulfo, El llano en llamas

Kevin Michel
“To shift your life in a desired direction, you must powerfully shift your subconscious.”
Kevin Michel, Moving Through Parallel Worlds To Achieve Your Dreams

“She's terrified that all these sensations and images are coming out of her — but I think she's even more terrified to find out why." Carla's description was typical of survivors of chronic childhood abuse. Almost always, they deny or minimize the abusive memories. They have to: it's too painful to believe that their parents would do such a thing.”
David L. Calof

Steven Pinker
“Trivers, pursuing his theory of the emotions to its logical conclusion, notes that in a world of walking lie detectors the best strategy is to believe your own lies. You can’t leak your hidden intentions if you don’t think they are your intentions. According to his theory of self-deception, the conscious mind sometimes hides the truth from itself the better to hide it from others. But the truth is useful, so it should be registered somewhere in the mind, walled off from the parts that interact with other people.”
Steven Pinker, How the Mind Works

Deb Caletti
“My subconscious speaks in a foreign language.”
Deb Caletti, The Six Rules of Maybe

Lisa Shearin
“I'd heard that if you saw a Reaper, you saw what you expected to see, what you thought the agents of Death would look like. Personally, I wanted to see little, fuzzy pink bunnies, but apparently my subconscious visualized tall, scary, and skeletal. My subconscious and I needed to have a long talk.”
Lisa Shearin, The Trouble with Demons

Sri Aurobindo
“It is true that the subliminal in man is the largest part of his nature and has in it the secret of the unseeen dynamisms which explain his surface activities. But the lower vital subconscious which is all that this psycho-analysis of Freud seems to know, - and of that it knows only a few ill-lit corners, - is no more than a restricted and very inferior portion of the subliminal whole... to begin by opening up the lower subconscious, risking to raise up all that is foul or obscure in it, is to go out of one's way to invite trouble.”
Sri Aurobindo, Integral Yoga: Teaching and Method of Practice

Raquel Cepeda
“The things that come to us easily, our propensities, are carried on a deep subconscious level into our next life. There are no coincidences.”
Raquel Cepeda, Bird of Paradise: How I Became Latina

Malcolm Gladwell
“if we can control the environment in which rapid cognition takes place, then we can control rapid cognition”
Malcolm Gladwell

Sri Aurobindo
“As in all infant sciences, the universal habit of the human mind - to take a partial or local truth, generalise it unduly and try to explain a whole field of nature in its narrow terms - runs riot here (in psychoanalysis). Moreover, the exaggeration of the importance of suppressed sexual complexes is a dangerous falsehood.”
Sri Aurobindo, Integral Yoga: Teaching and Method of Practice

Oliver Stone
“Films might get to you and your subconscious and make a little difference, but when the vigilante drum beats, the mob screams and the conformists go along with it. There have to be people who are non-conformists.”
Oliver Stone

George MacDonald
“The greatest forces lie in the region of the uncomprehended.”
George MacDonald, A Dish of Orts

“The Subconscious mind can not tell the difference between what's real and what's imagined.”
Bob Proctor

Nathaniel Hawthorne
“The mind is in a sad state when Sleep, the all-involving, cannot confine her spectres within the dim region of her sway, but suffers them to break forth, affrighting this actual life with secrets that perchance belong to a deeper one.”
Nathaniel Hawthorne, The Birthmark and Other Stories

Wayne Gerard Trotman
“We are at war, and the enemy knows that the subconscious absorbs everything.”
Wayne Gerard Trotman

Jenny Davidow
“Your subconscious is a powerful and mysterious force which can either hold you back or help you move forward. Without its cooperation, your best goals will go unrealized; with its help, you are unbeatable.”
Jenny Davidow, Embracing Your Subconscious: Bringing All Parts of You into Creative Partnership

Brian Tracy

Stephen King

Jose R. Coronado

Jose R. Coronado, The Land Flowing With Milk And Honey

Ross Caligiuri
“Be what you must, because who you are is all of us.”
Ross Caligiuri

“In the case of such “besetting” evil thoughts, our natural reaction is often suppression: to push the offending idea back down, deep into our subconscious, in order to rid ourselves of it quickly. But that never works.
The most effective way to truly rid our mind of a suppressed thought is to face it squarely and reject it.”
J. Heinrich Arnold, Freedom from Sinful Thoughts
