Chapter 3 Faith

FAITH is a state of mind which may be induced, or created, by affirmation or repeated instructions to the subconscious mind, through the principle of autosuggestion.

Repetition of affirmation of orders to your subconscious mind is the only known method of voluntary development of the emotion of faith.

Hill states concerning a criminal; “If they remain in contact with it long enough, they finally embrace it, and become INFLUENCED By It.”

This is the equivalent of saying that any impulse of thought which is repeatedly passed on to the subconscious mind is, finally, accepted and acted upon by the subconscious mind, which proceeds to translate that impulse into its physical equivalent, by the most practical procedure available.

ALL THOUGHTS WHICH HAVE BEEN EMOTIONALIZED, (given feeling) AND MIXED WITH FAITH begin IMMEDIATELY to translate themselves into their physical equivalent or counterpart.

FAITH is the “eternal elixir” which gives life, power, and action to the impulse of thought!

FAITH is the starting point of all accumulation of riches!

FAITH is the basis of all “miracles,” and all mysteries which cannot be analyzed by the rules of science!

FAITH is the only known antidote for FAILURE!

FAITH is the element, the “chemical” which, when mixed with prayer, gives one direct communication with Infinite Intelligence.

FAITH is the element which transforms the ordinary vibration of thought, created by the finite mind of man, into the spiritual equivalent.

FAITH is the only agency through which the cosmic force of Infinite Intelligence can be harnessed and used by man.

I have sought after more faith most of my life seeking to live out a Christ like life. Never satisfied with my level of faith and believing that faith comes form God, I would ask for greater faith. After reading this chapter I now understand that I can create faith in myself through autosuggestion. By repeating a thought or phrase over and over again to myself I am creating faith in that thing I am saying. I was wrong all those years and believed I was right, you either have faith of you don't. You either believe something is true or you don't, there is no middle ground.  Now having faith I must wait patently believing on the cosmic force of Infinite Intelligence to deliver that which I desire.
