Everyone can start something with the term "subconscious" and imagine what this means approximately. But to describe or even define the subconscious is not so easy. This is probably because it is intangible. Especially in the context of hypnosis, it is mentioned again and again, for example, how you can get in touch with it to achieve a change that is important for you. The subconscious mind is that part of the psyche which is not directly accessible to the conscious mind. According to Sigmund Freud, the subconscious is the area of the soul where all repressed urges and experiences are stored, which are not admitted by the conscious mind, but can influence us strongly. According to Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), the subconscious is everything that escapes present attention. In hypnosis, the client is put into a deep relaxation and trance, opening the way to the subconscious mind.
