Chapter 11 The Mystery of Sex Transmutation (Emotional Energy)


The meaning of the word “transmute” is, in simple language, “the changing, or transferring of one element, or form of energy, into another.”

The emotion of sex brings into being a state of mind which is physical. A mans physical desires can control their lives to the point where their focus falls away from their success. The chasing of a woman for all the wrong reasons can can lead to a life that you don't want to lead. I use my brother as an example becuase he did just that. He let his physical desires play a huge part in what his life's journey is today. The decisions he made in the past play a major role in the decision he can and cannot make today. All because of physical desires. Hill very next sentence explains this.

Because of ignorance on the subject, this state of mind is generally associated with the physical, and because of improper influences, to which most people have been subjected, in acquiring knowledge of sex, things essentially physical have highly biased the mind.

But Hill also tells us that the emotion of sex has back of it the possibility of three constructive potentialities, they are:—

1. The perpetuation of mankind. 2. The maintenance of health, (as a therapeutic agency, it has no equal). 3. The trans formation of mediocrity into genius through transmutation.

Sex transmutation is simple and easily explained. It means the switching of the mind from thoughts of physical expression, to thoughts of some other nature.

I know now after reading this book that I can use physical desires to my advantage when it comes being successful in life and business. The fact that I have to power to take that energy and transform it into infinite intelligence. This energy should not be ignored but shifted into my imagination, courage, willpower, and creative ability to have a better life as well as a better business.

Thanks again Michael and Linda for teaching me something else that I didn't know before.
