CHAPTER 3 FAITH: VISUALIZATION OF, AND
BELIEF IN ATTAINMENT OF DESIRE

“Riches begin in the form of thought! The amount is limited only
by the person in whose mind the thought is put into motion. Faith
removes limitations!”

In this chapter Mr. Hill call us to the lab of our mind. It is our
mind where seeds are cultured into thoughts which are things. Those
thoughts can become a great marriage, the dreams for a better world,
or the desire to be financially free. 

The only times I was in a lab was in high school, college, or having
a blood test. My memories of labs are not the best. I was able to finish
high school with basic science and eeked out a passing grade in one
emester of zoology and one of biology in college. The most I can say about
it is, “Boy I’m glad that’s over. The good thing about most of my blood
tests is, I did pass with good reports.

We now are told that, “FAITH is the head chemist of the mind. When FAITH
is blended with the vibration of thought, the subconscious mind instantly
picks up the vibration, translates it into its spiritual equivalent, and
transmits it to Infinite Intelligence, as in the case of prayer.”

Now as the head chemist of the mind, it is the emotion Faith when blended
with the emotion of Love and Sex that affects the “coloring” of our thought,
transporting into the subconscious mind to change and charge them into its
spiritual equivalent with the help of Infinite Intelligence.

How is this kind of Faith started? Simply put, it is seeded by the affirmation
or repeated instruction, “Self-Talk” through the principle of autosuggestion.
This single action “Self-Talk” has made a profound difference in my life and
how I think.

Every time I get into my car there by the left column of the windshield are
these letters: DFLSERHP. This is my reminder to live in the positive emotions:
Desire, Faith, Love, Sex, Enthusiasm, Romance, Hope and Prosperity. I cannot
explain how this has changed me. I am not as stressed out as I have been in the
past. I can handle conflicts, set-backs and negative people with a peace of mind
which even my wife and friends have noticed.

Faith has played a big role in my life, but I have failed to fully live in
faith.  My solution to faith in myself is Hill’s Self-Confidence Formula,
especially the fifth step: “I fully realize that no wealth or position can
long endure, unless built upon truth and justice, therefore, I will engage
in no transaction which does not benefit all whom it affects. I will succeed
by attracting to myself the forces I wish to use, and the cooperation of other
people. I will induce others to serve me, because of my willingness to serve
others. I will eliminate hatred, envy, jealousy, selfishness, and cynicism, by
developing love for all humanity, because I know that a negative attitude toward
others can never bring me success. I will cause others to believe in me, because
I will believe in them, and in myself.”

Thank you all for the encouragement I feel on each call, for I truly sense your
vibration in the ether. Thank you Michael for this resource you have created.
Thanks to those who mentor me and to those I mentor.
