Chapter 12 Subconscious Mind

The Subconscious mind is a very important component in learning to have an effective self-talk and to make plans to succeed in our business.   The subconscious mind works day and night.  Every impulse of thought that reaches the objective mind through any of the five senses becomes a part of the subconscious mind.  Sense impressions or thoughts regardless of their nature  become a part of this field of consciousness. 

A person may voluntarily plant any plan, thought or purpose which he desires to translate into its physical or monetary equivalent into the subconscious mind.  The desires that are mixed with emotional feeling are acted on first. Through  a procedure unknown to man the subconscious mind draws upon the infinite intelligence for the power it uses to transmute one’s desires into their physical equivalent.  

Even though there is much evidence to support the belief that the subconscious mind is the connecting link between the finite mind of man and infinite intelligence man can not control it completely.  Why? 

When we have a desire, make a plan or have a purpose which we wish to have transformed into concrete form, we have to take control over our thoughts and emotions connected with them.  We have to have the belief that we have the ability to accomplish our plans, desires and purposes.  We have to let our subconscious know that this is REALLY WHAT WE WANT. We need to have the vision, positive thoughts and actions to support our plans, desires, and purposes.  

 Since our subconscious does not distinguish between negative or positive, we have to be conscious of any thoughts or emotions that would kill any plan, desire or purpose.  Our subconscious mind does not understand when we don’t have clear desires.  This is why we need to put them into writing.  By doing the writing we make it clear in our conscious mind what we really want also.  The same is true of plans and our purpose for the plan.  

Putting our plans down on paper with our purpose for the plan helps us realize what our desire is. We can use our imagination to help execute the plan. The imagination works with the subconscious mind to transmute  our desires to the infinite intelligence which  then can give an answer.  It takes time to communicate our desires and purposes to the subconscious mind because we are having to stand on guard continually to not let negative thoughts and emotions into our subconscious mind.  This takes persistence  and using all the thirteen principles to carry out our plans, desires and purposes.  

We all need the support of a master mind group like MFF to accomplish this.  Thank you all for letting me share.
