Home » Glossary » Subconscious Mind

The subconscious mind is the part of our mind that operates below the level of conscious awareness. It is responsible for many of our automatic behaviors, such as breathing and heartbeat, as well as our emotional responses and habits.

The subconscious mind is also the repository for all of our experiences, memories, and beliefs that we are not consciously aware of. This information can influence our thoughts, feelings, and behaviors without us even realizing it.

Many psychologists believe that the subconscious mind plays a significant role in shaping our personalities and behaviors. By exploring the subconscious mind through techniques such as hypnosis, dream analysis, and free association, it is possible to gain a deeper understanding of ourselves and our motivations.

In the context of art, the surrealists were particularly interested in accessing the subconscious mind as a way of tapping into a deeper source of creativity and inspiration. They believed that by bypassing the rational mind and accessing the subconscious, they could create works that were more authentic and expressive.
