“Until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life and you will call it fate.” This is a quote from the famous Swiss psychologist and psychiatrist, Carl Jung. I can interpret this to mean when we start to examine our lives we will begin to notice that it reveals patterns of thoughts and behaviors that are a product of our subconscious programming. Some of which may be useful to us and some that may be holding us back from achieving a more fulfilling, healthier life.
Until we become aware of these patterns, much of our lives will be unconscious repetition. This is because all habits, routines, emotions, feelings, and core beliefs are not held in our awareness. But in our subconscious mind, that part of our mind that controls nearly every choice we make.

The first time you said it you used your subconscious mind where everything you learned is stored.
How Your Thoughts, Emotions, And Actions Become Habitual

Once your reactions become habitual it becomes more difficult to rewire, because we have become conditioned.
