How Your Unconscious Mind Expands Time
> Enhance Your Time Management Skills Using The
Hypnotic Sleep-In Course
In 1956, George
A. Miller published his famous paper “The Magical
Number Seven, Plus or Minus Two: Some Limits on Our Capacity for
In essence, this means that our conscious minds can handle between five
and nine “chunks” of information simultaneously. So we can hold a 7
digit phone number in our consciousness for a couple of seconds unless
we write it down, or commit it to memory. Once it’s committed to
memory, it’s in our subconscious mind, and different rules apply for
our unconscious mind.
Our conscious mind can
handle seven plus or minus two chunks of information simultaneously.
a good thing that our unconscious minds are not limited. Our
unconscious mind’s can handle millions of chunks of information
simultaneously. If our unconscious mind could only handle nine chunks
of information simultaneously, it’d say OK, 1) let’s keep the heart
beating 2) Better keep that digestion going 3) Must remember the blood
flow. 4) Oh, yeah, let’s process images coming in through the eyes. 5)
Yep, some nasty bugs out there, keep on top of the immune system. 6)
Better be aware of how the left small toe feels. 7) Must remember to
process those sounds, the mother in law might be saying something
important. 8) What’s that smell? 9) There’s still a remnant of a taste
from lunch time in my mouth 10) Oh, oh breathing, must remember that –
oops, what was the first item on the list again.
conscious mind can handle a trickle of information; our unconscious
minds can handle a massive, surging flood of information.
unconscious mind keeps track of everything that is going on in and
around our body. Simultaneously. In terms of information flow, our
conscious minds can handle the equivalent of a trickle from a tap. In
comparison, your unconscious mind can handle the equivalent of the flow
over Niagara falls. For example, every time somebody says something to
you, your unconscious mind simultaneously fires off all the
associations it has with that word, analyses the context, and
immediately sends the correct meaning and interpretation to your
conscious mind. Imagine trying to do that consciously!
may have heard of near death experiences, where a person’s whole life
flashed in front of them. Perhaps these are hallucinatory. However,
it’s an impressive amount of information in a few seconds, regardless
of whether it’s real or hallucination. Wilder Penfield was the famous
pioneering neurosurgeon who was the first to create maps of the sensory
and motor cortices of the brain. He reported in his paper “Memory
Mechanisms” that some of his patients (less than 5% of them)
re-experienced full vivid memories of their past when certain neurons
in the temporal lobe were stimulated, but modern neurosurgeons have not
replicated this. The only reliable thing about memory is that it is

life flashes in front of them, it's an impressive amount of information

that “The only reason for time is so that everything doesn't happen at
once.” Time is relative to how fast we are moving. Our internal concept
of time is relative to what we are experiencing. If you were to stop
for a second, and think of a time you were really excruciatingly bored,
and just when you thought it was over, they started something else…
Time seemed to go slowly, didn’t it! Yet, the time on the clock went at
the same rate, since you probably weren’t travelling at a speed near
the speed of light! Now stop, and think of a time when you were having
wonderful fun, and notice how time seemed to pass really fast, even
though the time on the clock went at normal speed. Time contraction and
expansion are functions that your unconscious mind knows how to do
already. What if you could make time seem to go more slowly when you
are really enjoying what you are doing. (Perhaps you’ve already
experienced an intense romantic experience or experiences where time
seemed to stand still!). What if you could make time seem to go faster
when things are unpleasant.
Time is relative to speed. Perceived Time is relative to what you are
experiencing. When bored, time seems to go slowly. While enjoying
experience, time seems to go fast.
Using hypnosis, we can
combine the powers of your unconscious mind to
Do many things simultaneously
this means is that you can do a lot of things in your imagination, in a
short amount of clock time, and it can seem as if a long time has
passed in your awareness.
And you can learn how to do that with the Hypnotic Sleep In Course.
