Chapter 12

The Subconscious Mind

This is one of my favorite chapters of the book. Hill shares with us, “You are preparing yourself to influence and control the “inner audience” of your subconscious mind, in order to hand over to it the DESIRE for money, which you wish transmuted into its monetary equivalent. It is essential, therefore, that you understand the method of approach to this “inner audience.” You must speak its language, or it will not heed your call. It understands best the language of emotion or feeling. Let us, therefore describe here the seven major positive emotions, and the seven major negative emotions, so that you may draw upon the positives, and avoid the negatives, when giving instructions to your subconscious mind.


The emotion of DESIRE The emotion of FAITH The emotion of LOVE The emotion of SEX The emotion of ENTHUSIASM The emotion of ROMANCE The emotion of Hope.”


My biggest takeaway from these paragraphs is that the subconscious’ best language is our emotions and feelings. Our feelings is what will guide us to our riches. Have you ever had those days where the first thing that happens to you when you wake up in the morning is you stub your toe, or something you consider “bad”, and then everything seems to go against you? That's because our feeling of anger, sadness, etc from the morning is what guided us the rest of the day.


I heard a great quote from someone this past weekend, and they said, “We get out of life what we expect of life.” When we apply the seven positive emotions and expect our riches, we will get it. If not, we won't.


So the question is, where have your feelings and emotions guided you? And where do you want them to guide you from here?
