The greater the conscious effort, the less the subconscious mind responds.
The Mental Law of Reverse Effect is a law of your mind that says that the greater the conscious effort, the less the subconscious mind responds. This means that when you get stressed over things and try too hard, your deep inner mind responds less in helping you to reach your goals. The harder you try to sleep, the harder it is. The more you try to remember a name, the harder it is to remember. The moment you just let go and give up, that is when it comes. The Mental Law of Reverse Effect ties into the Universal Law of Least Effort. Through relaxing and surrendering, we accomplish everything with effortless ease.
