Think and Grow Rich-Chapter 4-Autosuggestion
The third step toward riches
Auto-suggestion is the tool by which the conscious mind receives a thought and communicates it to the subconscious mind, where it is activated. Our conscious mind volunteers these thoughts to the subconscious mind, meaning whatever thoughts we allow our mind to entertain will slip into our subconscious mind. No thought, negative or positive, CAN ENTER THE SUBCONSCIOUS MIND WITHOUT THE AID OF THE PRINCIPLE OF AUTO-SUGGESTION, with the exception of thoughts picked up from the ether.
All impressions through any of the five senses, are stopped by the CONSCIOUS thinking mind, and may be either be passed on to the subconscious mind, or rejected…at will. The Conscious Mind is the Gate Keeper.
Autosuggestion communicates our desire to our subconscious mind best through our faith and with emotion. It still takes persistence…and there is a price. Before starting this procedure, we have to commit to be willing to pay that price. The only variable in this physical law is US. If we fail…its try again …and again.
We get to relax and give our subconscious mind the job of creating a plan for us to reach our money goals, though we must be exact about the amount of money we want & to be effective, we need to see ourselves in possession of it. If we DEMAND & EXPECT the money, then our subconscious mind will hand over the plan to reach the goal. But a caution here, next we have to LISTEN and WATCH for these plans to unfold and put them into ACTION IMMEDIATELIY. Just as a butterfly lands on our arm and is gone again, the thoughts may be only a tiny flash in our minds. Failure to notice them will be FATAL to our success. Our own reasoning will not convey the plan to us.
When these pearls of direction come to us, we are to ACT NOW…in a spirit of FAITH. Remember we are doing this to give orders to our subconscious minds. For best results, the subconscious mind must be emotionalized and filled with FAITH. This will grow into ABSOLUTE FAITH.
Mastering ourselves comes by using the superior power man has to influence his/her own subconscious mind and THEN we can partner with God toward our worthy goals.
This is the most important area that I need to incorporate into my own life.
Thanks once more to Linda and Michael Dlouhy for lifting us up to the place where we can ponder the deep thoughts of mastering ourselves and helping others to do the same. Thanks to all who participate in any way by writing lessons, speaking up or being on the calls.
