Ctrl/Cmd+V The Subconscious Mind
“Mind your house” This is a frequent shout I hear when watching a football match with my son, especially when a player on the team he is supporting gets the ball and is in danger of being dispossessed by a member of the opposition. Our minds are like a house with four rooms, one each for desire, will power, imagination and the control centre, the subconscious mind. The control centre receives messages from the outside and sends messages to it. It is said that “a house divided against itself cannot stand”, so there must be perfect communication between the four rooms. The control centre is under constant attack from outside forces and it will succumb if there is no strong desire backed by an indomitable will and supported by a creative imagination.
If you want your house to survive, you must have a clear, written-down purpose reinforced by a supporting self-talk repeated many times daily so that by force of habit control of the subconscious mind is wrestled from the power of the constant stream of conflicting messages coming into it from outside. Once control is attained the subconscious mind will summon aid from infinite Intelligence to achieve the desired purpose or desire. Hill says: “You are now engaged in trying to shut off the flow of negative impulses, and to aid in voluntarily influencing your subconscious mind through positive impulses of desire.”
Once the power of Infinite Intelligence is tapped into, a flow of creative ideas and inspirations becomes available to the imagination. Hill observes: “Through the aid of imagination thought impulses may be assembled into plans”. The subconscious mind is now sending out positive messages and permanently deleting the unwanted and harmful messages just like a well-managed computer.
Regards and best wishes to all.
