The Subconscious Mind


My office might not be organized.  My conscious mind might not be organized, BUT my subconscious mind has it totally together!

Just because it is organized with detailed files of every thought or sense  impression I’ve EVER had, doesn’t mean it isn’t FULL of LOTS lf TRASH!  

Focusing on the true DESIRES of my heart will help sweep the trash to the side, but NOT OUT!  Plus, I can always pull it up if I choose.  However, a full scale plan presented to my subconscious mind and strengthened by autosuggestion can stay on the TOP PAGE of my mind, if I have a strong enough DESIRE and enough FAITH.

That’s why Michael Dlouhy does his self-talk many times daily and encourages me to create a self-talk message that I repeat many times a day as well.

This has been difficult for me to sustain and in the creation of self-talk, it helps me to put lots of words on a page of intangible things I want in my life and include them essence of them in my brief sentences accompanied by a list of things I’m willing to do to receive them and then speak AS IF I already have them.

This sounds easy enough…but BEWARE…there are fiery darts placed in my path every single day that seek to stop my progress and fill it with discouragement and disappointment.  It CAN actually keep me from my goal.  Hill says, “For the present, it is sufficient if you remember that you are living daily in the midst of all manner of thought impulses which are reaching your subconscious mind without your knowledge.  Some of the impulses are negative, some are positive.  You are now engaged in trying to help shut off the flow of negative impulses, and faced in voluntarily influencing the subconscious mind, through positive impulse of DESIRE.”

“When you achieve this, you will possess the door to your subconscious mind.  Moreover, you will control that door so completely that no undesirable thought may influence your subconscious mind.”


The only cure or armor that affects discouragement is to DONSTANTLY wear my Positive hat and look at my day in a positive way AND sit with my subconscious mind privately a few times a day and repeat my plan and preferred emotional state to my subconscious mind, which will then become my Buddy for Life.


Thanks so much to Linda and Michael Dlouhy for encouraging me and modeling the way to a more positive productive life.  Thanks to all who participate and add brilliant ideas to these lessons.
