Ctrl/Cmd+VThe Brain The Brain
The brain is like a control centre. The relevant parts, as far as this chapter is concerned, are the conscious or reasoning mind, the subconscious mind and the creative imagination. Hill describes it like this: “…every human brain is both a broadcasting and receiving station for the vibration of thought”. He also says: “The creative imagination is the receiving set of the brain, which receives thoughts released by the brains of others. It is the agency of communication between one’s conscious or reasoning mind and the four sources from which one may receive thought stimuli”. Those four sources are (1) Infinite Intelligence (2) One’s subconscious mind (3) the mind of some other person who has just released the thought or picture of the idea or concept through conscious thought and (4) the other person’s subconscious storehouse.
As man has free will, the agency of control begins when the individual says to himself/herself: “I am going to control the flow of thoughts into my mind. This is what I want, so let’s make it happen”. Having a life purpose or desire one must design an autosuggestion or self-talk that is based on that purpose and, by repeating it many times daily, the subconscious mind broadcasts it to Infinite Intelligence and to the universe. Positive ideas and inspirations flow into the creative imagination from the aforementioned four sources.
We take so much for granted; if we can’t perceive it with the five senses, we doubt its existence. There is order in the world and in the universe and it didn't happen by accident. The Creator has a purpose and we were created for a purpose. It is up to us to find our purpose and to make it a reality in our lives. Having decided what we really want, we must block the flow of negative chatter assailing us from every direction, using positive self-talk, and design our lives to our liking. If my brain (my control centre) puts out positive focused thoughts it will attract the same.
Regards and best wishes to all.
