The Eleventh Step toward Riches

THE SUBCONSCIOUS MIND consists of a field of consciousness,

in which every impulse of thought that reaches the objective mind,

through any of the five senses, is classified and recorded, and from

which thoughts may be recalled or withdrawn as letters may be 

taken from a filing cabinet.

It receives, and files, sense impressions or thoughts, regardless

of their nature.  You may VOLUNTARILY plant in your sub-

conscious mind any plan, thought, or purpose which you desire

to translate into its physical or monetary equivalent.  The sub-

conscious acts first on the dominating desires which have been

mixed with emotional feeling, such as faith.


Through a method of procedure, unknown to man, the sub-

conscious mind draws upon the forces of Infinite Intelligence

for the power with which it voluntarily transmutes one's

desires into their physical equivalent, making use, always, of

the most practical media by which this end may be accom-


There is plenty of evidence to support the belief that the sub-

conscious mind is the connecting link between the finite

mind of man and Infinite Intelligence.  It is the intermediary 

through which one may draw upon the forces  of Infinite

Intelligence at will.  It, alone, contains the secret process 

by which mental impulses are modified and changed into their

spiritual equivalent.  It, alone, is the medium through which

prayer may be transmitted to the source capable of 

answering prayer

The possibilities of creative effort connected with the sub-

conscious mind are stupendous and imponderable.  They 

inspire one with awe.

I never approach the discussion of the subconscious mind

without a feeling of littleness and inferiority due, perhaps, to the

fact that man's entire stock of knowledge on this subject is so

pitifully limited.  The very fact that the subconscious mind

is the medium of communication between the thinking mind

of man and Infinite Intelligence is, of itself a thought which

almost paralyzes one's reason

After you have accepted, as a reality, the existence of the

subconscious mind, and understand its possibilities, as a medium

for transmuting your DESIRES into their physical or monetary

equivalent, you will comprehend the full significance of the

instructions given in the chapter on DESIRE.  You will also

understand why you have been repeatedly admonished to


WRITING.  You will also understand the necessity of 

PERSISTENCE in carrying out instructions.

Thanks to Michael and Linda Dlouhy for providing this platform

for all of us to learn and grow into the people that we are meant 

to become.

Love to all
