Have you ever experienced a special feeling when you hear a song or smell a particular food? These feelings are created by saving the information of past memories in your unconscious mind. In this article, you learn how to use the saving memories in the unconscious mind to affect the others feelings and guide them to the specific reaction you want.
How can the unconscious mind make the past feelings alive?
We all have bitter and sweet experiences in our lives and we have bitter and sweet memories in mind. For example, many years ago when you were young, you were definitely taking part in family activities. You should have enjoyed these activities. The reason for your pleasure is directly related to the activity itself.
Now, when you make that memories alive in your mind, you will be happy. But this feeling is not the result of that family activity. So how can you experience the same feelings without doing these activities again? This is the result of the saved feelings in your unconscious mind. Our unconscious mind is full of different bitter and sweet feelings. Notice the following examples:
- Turn the pages of your family album and you will be happy by the effects of the happy memories of the past.
- Listening to an old song changes your mood.
- A pleasant smell of a special cake or food will bring you a happy childhood memory.
- Someone’s behavior reminds you your father’s anger and you will be affected and scared.
- Listening to a music will bring you the past memories.
In all of these examples, the feelings of that memory will be alive without repeating the activity you have done in the past. But if you look carefully, some of these feelings are more intense and some are slighter.
How effective are the memories of unconscious mind?
In the examples without realizing that by looking, hearing, or touching something at the moment, we are reminded of a similar occurrence in the past, and our unconscious mind feels it again. Reminding the past feelings as more unconsciously is more effective. Its great effectiveness is because of its invisibility.
To better understand the case, you can tell a tragic event for one of your friends, an unpleasant incident that has happened in your life.

The weather, the color and the shape of the clothes you were wearing, the characteristics of location, your friend’s clothes, your perfume, the song that was played in those moments from the radio or television, and …
One of these suddenly makes you sad and cries again. The more effective case is more unconsciously.

- Have your palms got wet from sweat?

How does understanding the power of unconscious mind affect our lives?
When we are with someone whose feelings are irritated, whatever we say and whatever we do, will be related to that feeling and recorded in his unconscious mind. This is usually done at the unconscious level of mind. As a result, whenever we repeat the same talk or the same behavior, we will revive the previous feelings to him. Knowing this phenomenon allows us to notice the reactions we make in others. Paying attention to this allows us to reach useful results and notice the feelings and memories we create in the others minds.
If we touch a person in a bad mood, he will be upset if we touch him in the future without any particular external cause. Therefore, we conclude that we must touch someone when he is in a good mood. In this way, if we touch someone later in an unfavorable situation, the memory about previous pleasant touching will improve him.
How to use the power of the unconscious mind to reach the desired wish?
The process of reaching the wishes of the bosses, customers, lawyers, friends or spouse is very easy. Ask the person to make one of his most memorable moments in mind alive. For example, if you want him to experience a pleasant reaction or response, ask him to review the pleasant incident in your mind. In this way, he can remember many happy joys in his mind by remembering that pleasurable incident.
The purpose of getting the appropriate response is to provide a suitable context for having an effective communication with the audience. The person’s mental state (his feelings) plays an important role in how he treats with your ideas and suggestions. By providing a suitable background for getting the desired response, you make a condition in which your audience agrees your point of view or suggestion in a way that you are interested in.
At the end, pay attention to this point, because communicating with the others unconscious mind through positive memories is a powerful process and, in comparison with the other methods, it may be misused or used wrongly, so please be careful while using it. Self-respect and self-esteem is a very valuable asset. If you miss this, you will lose everything.
