Why does our subconscious mind like to scare us so much?


  1. Because we have all these images from television dramas in our mind, and our subconscious doesn’t understand the difference between reality and fantasy, so when we’re in the shower, it prepares us for the very likely event that a psycho killer is going to quietly sneak into our bathroom and stab us.

  2. What do you mean?
    Like paranoia or being afraid of the dark?
    Like monsters- In reality that there were animals like big cats, wolves etc that did hunt humans.
    Survival instinct.
    So… what do you mean?

  3. its not our mind, its the government
    its what our parents teach us
    its what we see on TV.
    from the beginning, as children, we’re praised to lie about gifts we dont like, etc

  4. Well… I doubt it LIKES to scare us. But it can be very entertaining sometimes.
    What happens is that as tiny children there’s always “abuse” – things that scared the crap out of us or made so SO ANGRY. Legally they might not have been “abuse” – but to us they were terrible – and we repressed them… “forgot” them – and they now lay in the unconscious – still alive – like Dracula in his coffin – waiting for night so they can get up and walk.
    And we do love to mess with these old forgotten scary things – that’s why people invented horror films – and we can all go and get really scared and scream and experience that state of anxiety and shock that we felt as tiny children – but don’t quite “remember”.
    Once you go through psychoanalysis and recover some of these lost memories, you’re a LOT harder to scare!

  5. You can pray about your life. Know that God can help you live a better life if you want Him to help you. You can have a personal relationship with God by saying the prayer below. God is our Creator, all-knowing, all-powerful, eternal, holy, love. God loves us and sent us His Son, Jesus Christ, so we can go to heaven if we know and follow Him. Forever means without end — time on and on without death. Forever is what happens after we die. Either we go to heaven and be with God forever, or we go to hell which is very bad and painful forever. The good people who are saved believers in Jesus Christ go to heaven. The bad people go to hell. We need to know and follow God in this world to get to heaven in the next world. We follow God by loving and obeying Him and loving others for Him. Jesus Christ, God’s Son, is our bridge to God. Jesus died on the cross to cancel our sins. We need to accept Jesus into our life as our Lord and Savior forever to receive God’s blessing and forgiveness plus go to heaven to be with God forever after we die. This is about being a born-again Christian. Faith in God is a gift from God. You can pray for faith in God. Just speak out and ask God for the faith to believe in Him and to follow Him. Some people find faith in God when they realize the beauty in the world is made by God. Evolution can’t explain the world’s natural beauty, for example, the parks in the world, animals, flowers, peacocks, sunsets, butterflies, rainbows, etc. After you have your faith on, you can pray a sinner’s prayer to be a born-again Christian. This prayer is very important and should be said with a sincere heart and faith in God. This is the prayer: “Dear God, I know that I am a sinner and that Jesus Christ is the sacrifice for our sins. I have done the following sins (state these out) and I pray to discontinue these sins. I pray to receive Jesus Christ into my life as my Lord and Savior forever. In Jesus’ name, amen.” I’m Lutheran and I like the Baptist churches too. You could check out a Christian church and also see about their weekly Bible study group as a good way to learn about God’s will for your life. You can pray to God about your daily life and have a Christian church pray for you.
