Chapter 4 Auto-Suggestion


The Third Step toward Riches

“From our birth to our death we are all the slaves of suggestion”. - Emile Coue

In the previous chapter on “Faith” we were introduce to the concept of Autosuggestion as a means of changing our belief. The example given by Hill was that of a criminal. He or she starts life as we all do; a baby, but those we associate with influence our minds and our outlook on life. Hill uses the analogue of a criminal who commences life aborting crime but when he associates with criminals and his mind is fed with constant criminal actions and talk his mind set changes and thinks along criminal lines.

Here at Mentoring For Free we know Autosuggestion as “Self Talk”. Investigations into the Brain have shown that it receives a constant flow of suggestions from the Universe. We can call these ideas, hunches or dreams. They can be positive or negative and only differ in the means by which they enter the mind (Brain) of man. It must be clearly stated that negative thoughts are ten times stronger than positive and have direct passage into a human min.

The Quote above is a true statement but we have the ability to change which thought of suggestion we are slaves to, positive or negative. To have a positive attitude in life we must change our mode of thinking, like our Faith, by the use of passing strong emotional thoughts to our subconscious mind. This is known as ‘Autosuggestion’.

In Chapter 2 we are asked to write down clearly 5 definite steps which end up as our ‘Passionate Desire’ for our life or business. The sixth step is the reading aloud clearly of this statement once in the Morning and again before Retiring. By this statement we are placing the Universe on notice, just as Barnes did with Edison at their first meeting, of our passionate Desire (the amount of money or position), the time frame and what we will give back in return.

Our Self Talk is a shortened form or summary of step five, which is both emotional and passionate, and tells the Universe many times per day of what we are requiring to be delivered. Remember what Michael states “How you do anything is how you do everything”.
