Chapter 12 

The Subconscious Mind

You may VOLUNTARILY plant in your subconscious mind any plan, thought, or purpose which you desire to translate into its physical or monetary equivalent. The subconscious acts first on the dominating desires which have been mixed with emotional feeling, such as faith.

Yes, we must believe as in Faith that our plan will come to fruition if we concentrate on the fact that our plan is understood by our sub-conscious mind. We must have our facts straight. When we write it down, it should make sense to anyone that would read it. Writing it down as has been suggested will let us know exactly what our plan is especially if we use a master mind group to help in interpreting what we want.  The plan must be clear to all.

You cannot entirely control your subconscious mind, but you can voluntarily hand over to it any plan, desire, or purpose which you wish transformed into concrete form. 

We must realize that our sub-conscious mind receives positive and negative thoughts from our emotions and from other people as well as the ether.  We also have to remember that the sub-conscious mind works day and night.  Night time is when our sub-conscious mind can catch up with the other parts of our thinking process and we have dreams and night-mares that can be distracting.  We are influenced by all these distractions but by developing the habit of using all the thirteen principles Mr. Hill  talks about in this book “Think and Grow Rich,” we will be successful in keeping our sub-conscious mind on track.This is where I really admire Michael Dlouhy because he has been able to achieve this habit. Mr. Hill tells us it takes time but because I am a blue personality I want to have it happen NOW not later.  Patience is what it takes.
