CHAPTER 4- THINK AND GROW RICH
AUTO-SUGGESTION

"Sweep up the debris of decaying faiths;
Sweep down the cobwebs of worn-out beliefs,
And throw your soul wide open to the light
Of Reason and of Knowledge.
Be not afraid to thrust aside half-truths
and grasp the whole."
--Ella Wheeler Wilcox

Autosuggestion is self-suggestion or as we say it self-talk. 
It is a way of communicating between that part of the mind
where conscious thought takes place, and that which serves
as the seat of action for the subconscious mind. It is
through self-talk that we voluntarily plant ideas, desires,
and plans in the subconscious mind which in turn influent
the conscious mind to act upon them.

Hill state that we have absolute control over everything that reaches
the subconscious mind through the five, but I must choose
to use or exercise thus control. We are told to see the
subconscious mind as a fertile garden spot, in which will
grow in abundance whatever we plant whether positive or
negative thoughts, fruitful plants or harmful weeds. The choice
is ours, the seeds of more desirable crops or the destructive
weeds of poverty or others fears.

Don’t become discouraged, with time and positive self-talk
you gain control and direct your emotions the subconscious
mind that you desire and weed out the negative influences.

Hills tells us, “Remember, there is no such possibility as
SOMETHING FOR NOTHING. Ability to reach, and influence your subconscious
mind has its price, and you MUST PAY THAT PRICE.
You cannot cheat, even if you desire to do so. The price of
ability to influence your subconscious mind is everlasting
PERSISTENCE in applying the principles described here. You cannot
develop the desired ability for a lower price. You,
and YOU ALONE, must decide whether or not the reward for
which you are striving (the “money consciousness”), is
worth the price you must pay for it in an effort.”

“For we live by believing and not by seeing.” -2 Corinthians 5:7
This instruction is the power we have with the use of positive self-talk
, repeated 100’s or 1000’s times daily, until it becomes
automatic reflect of the mind.  

Listen to this admonition of King David: “Oh, the joys of those
who do not follow the advice of the wicked, or stand around with
sinners, or join in with mockers. But they delight in the law of
the Lord, meditating on it day and night. They are like trees
planted along the riverbank, bearing fruit each season. Their
leaves never wither, and they prosper in all they do.” Psalms 1:1-3

Make your self-talk mixed with positive emotions, defeat the poison
of thenegative weeds. May your delight be in living the energy or
fruit of faith or belief that the future is real.
