Prime Directives of the Unconscious Mind

Your unconscious mind is the part of you that operates outside of your consciousness. It has certain rules or "Prime Directives" that it abides by (most important are highlighted):

  1. Preserves the body
  2. Runs the body
    Has a blueprint of body as it is now, and of the body in perfect health
  3. Stores memories
    Temporal (in relationship to time) and atemporal (not in relationship to time)
  4. Is the domain of the emotions
  5. Organizes all memories
    Uses a Gestalt on the timeline
  6. Represses memories with unresolved negative emotions
  7. Presents repressed memories for resolution
    To release emotions
  8. Is symbolic
    Uses and responds to symbols
  9. Takes everything personally
    The basis of Perception is Projection
  10. Works on the principle of least effort
    Takes the path of least resistance
  11. Does not process negatives
    Don’t think of a blue tree
  12. May keep the repressed emotions repressed for protection
  13. Is a highly moral part of you
    The morality you were taught and accepted
  14. Enjoys serving, needs clear orders to follow
  15. Controls and maintains all perceptions
    Both regular and telepathic, and transmits them to the conscious mind
  16. Generates, stores, distributes and transmits all “energy”
  17. Maintains instincts and generates habits
  18. Needs repetition until a habit is installed (the quicker, the better)
  19. Is programmed to continually seek more and more
    There is always more to discover
  20. Functions best as a whole integrated unit
    Does not need parts to function
