Subconscious is the state of half consciousness. It's the hallway to unconscious mind.
Basically, unconscious has all of our karmic blueprints of all of our incarnations. Meditation is a way to write off bad karmic blueprints and Sanskaras. Sanskaras, as explained by Buddha are basically developed by what we repeatedly do, so that's how we develop Sanskaras.
Meditation nullifies all of your thoughts, thoughts represents karmic blueprints which are set in certain patterns. Remember, your thinking always happen in certain patterns. Right from our birth we have been conditioned to think in certain patterns by our parents, guardians, environment, school, and by the people with whom we spend most time with.
"You are the average of the five, you spend most time with." - Jim Rohn
In the midst of all these thought programming and conditioning, we lose our touch with our true self(soul) and the divinity within. In turn, we forget who we really are, and lose touch with our intuitions, instincts which came along with us from millions of incarnations, it's all residing in our unconscious mind. It's important to be objective.
"Meditation conjures up what's truly yours and optimize the manifestation process."
So, a person practicing meditation can easily train his subconscious mind and manifest what's good to him & most importantly something that really belongs to him, and that's much needed. It makes you highly intuitive as well as regulated. It conjure up the instincts and intuitions residing deep in your unconscious mind. Meditative state of mind emits alpha waves.
