CHAPTER 12-THE SUBCONSCIOUS MIND:
THE CONNECTING LINK

Everything which man creates begins in the form of a thought impulse.
Man can create nothing which he does not first conceive in thought.
Through the aid of the imagination, thought impulses may be assembled
into plans. The imagination, when under control, may be used for the
creation of plans or purposes that lead to success in one’s chosen
occupation.

All thought impulses, intended for transmutation into their physical
equivalent, voluntarily planted in the subconscious mind, must pass
through the imagination, and be mixed with faith. The “mixing” of faith
with a plan, or purpose, intended for submission to the subconscious
mind may be done ONLY through the imagination” Napoleon Hill

The most important lesson I have learned about the subconscious mind it
is more open to the impulses of thought when they are mixed with feelings
or emotion. The fact is that only emotionalized thoughts can have any
action taking influence on the subconscious mind.

Emotionalized thought determines your prosperity because they are thoughts
that can easily enter into your subconscious mind. The theory is that the
subconscious mind responds more often to the emotional thoughts rather than
rational ones

“Emotionalized thoughts (thoughts that reach the subconscious mind) dictate
the vibration your body moves into. So, you can think about your goal a
million times a day, but if you don’t mix your words with feeling, you’ll
never experience the desired result” Bob Proctor

A farmer goes out to sow seeds in his field. There are many factors that will
determine to harvest he will have: the preparation of the soil, the fertilizer
he uses, and the weather during the growing season. But the determination of
the crop he will harvest is all in seeds he sows in the planting season. One
can only imagine the surprise and embarrassment felt if when thinking he
planted wheat but discovered lawn grass growing.

Those emotionalized thoughts we sow in the subconscious mind can be energized
from the positive choice, we make or the fall back on the negative energy for
85% around us.  

“Busy your mind with the concepts of harmony, health, peace, and goodwill, and
wonders will happen in your life. The way to get rid of darkness is with light;
the way to overcome cold is with heat; the way to overcome the negative thought
is to substitute the good thought. Affirm the good, and the bad will vanish."
Joseph Murphy

Thank you, Linda and Michael Dlouhy, for showing me how to mix faith and emotion
with my thoughts for the planting of my subconscious mind. My gratitude to all my
​family here at Mentoring for Free for the energy you share on all the weekly calls.

I love you all
