Think & Grow Rich Lessons

Ella Wheeler Wilcox gave evidence of her understanding of the power of the subconscious mind when she wrote:

“You never can tell what a thought will do In bringing you hate or love— For thoughts are things, and their airy wings Are swifter than carrier doves.

They follow the law of the universe— Each thing creates its kind, And they speed O’er the track to bring you back Whatever went out from your mind.”


Hill describes the subconscious mind as a sending and receiving station much like a radio.  


As a receiver, the mind, like a radio is bombarded by countless signals.  Let's take your car radio

for example.  There are numerous frequencies or stations available at any one time, and with the

coming of satellite radio that number increased.  You can hear anything from politics to preaching,

from classical music to hip hop and anything in between.  So, how do you hear what you want and

only what you want?  Well, you use the preset buttons.  They can be programmed to the stations you

want and when you press the button it goes directly to that station and that is all that you hear.


Our mind has preset buttons, also.  They are known as the 8 positive emotions (7 by Hill and one added


When these positive emotions are used, they program the subconscious mind to receive uplifting thoughts

that will bring us to the point of accomplishing our BURNING DESIRE.


When we don't use our positive presets, the negative emotions (not listed because 1. they are automatic 

and 2. we don't need to dwell on them} will automatically filter in, much like putting your car radio on Scan.

It scans through all the stations and you hear them all, regardless of what you want to hear.


As a sending station, to speak to Infinite Intelligence and send thoughts to others we want to influence, 

our mind works much like a HAM radio.  With a HAM radio you can speak with a person in Australia

for example.  However, you must be tuned to the proper frequency.  It is the same with our minds, we

must tune to the proper frequency (the positive emotions: DESIRE, FAITH, LOVE,SEX, ENTHUSIASM,

ROMANCE, HOPE, and PROSPERITY) if we wish to reach Infinite Intelligence or others we want to

influence.  When we don't use these positive emotions it is like spinning the dial to see where it randomly 

ends up.


The point is:  We have the abillity to control what goes in and comes out of our subconscious mind.  But,

we must make deliberate effort for it to be positive.  The negative will take care of itself if we don't.


Thanks to Michael and Linda, Bob, and all in this Mastermind, for the part each of you play in the positive 

reprogramming of my mind.  I have removed the "scan button" and am using only the positive "presets".
