The unconscious mind, or subconscious, is a part of our mind that is not accessible to waking consciousness. In other words, the unconscious mind is a realm in which many of our repressed feelings, thoughts, and memories exist. The unconscious mind also contains automatic skills (such as driving a car), automatic reactions and untapped knowledge. Learning to enter the mysterious realm of the unconscious mind is a vital part of inner work, for within the unconscious mind lies many of our unhealed wounds.
