NO THOUGHT, whether it be negative or positive, CAN ENTER THE SUBCONSCIOUS MIND WITHOUT THE AID OF THE PRINCIPLE OF AUTO-SUGGESTION, with the exception of thoughts picked up from the ether. Stated differently, all sense impressions which are perceived through the five senses, are stopped by the CONSCIOUS thinking mind, and may be either passed on to the subconscious mind, or rejected, at will. The conscious faculty serves, therefore, as an outer-guard to the approach of the subconscious.
Nature has so built man that he has ABSOLUTE CONTROL over the material which reaches his subconscious mind, through his five senses, although this is not meant to be construed as a statement that man always EXERCISES this control. In the great majority of instances, he does NOT exercise it, which explains why so many people go through life in poverty.
Recall what has been said about the subconscious mind resembling a fertile garden spot, in which weeds will grow in abundance, if the seeds of more desirable crops are not sown therein.
AUTOSUGGESTION is the agency of control through which an individual may voluntarily feed his subconscious mind on thoughts of a creative nature, or, by neglect, permit thoughts of a destructive nature to find their way into this rich garden of the mind. Quote : Hill
A man is the sum total of what he thinks about. If we believe… we shall receive ! There is a direct similarity between the mind and a fertile field. The farmer can choose what he wants to plant in his field, the ground does not care. He can plant a good seed or he can plant a poisonous seed. The ground will yield in the same abundance both types of seed. So also is the mind. It doesn’t care what we put into it, positive or negative thoughts, the fruit will be as the seed of thought. So if we seed fear, anxiety, anger, lust, disgust, poverty, procrastination, or any of many more negative seeds, we will reap a very unhappy life. On the other side, the same is also just as true. If we sow seeds of happiness, joy, peace,love, gentleness, helpfulness, care, faith, encouragement, or any of the other many wonderful graces that people lovers can do to enhance the lives of those around them, we will be blessed with a very beautiful life.
The mind is the most unexplored continent on earth ! We ought to use our minds the way they were made to used ! We were not put here to mess up! We were made to go up not down. God did not build a stairway to nowhere!
