Chapter 12-The Subconscious Mind

“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
of the mind of man and Infinite Intelligence is, of itself, a thought that almost
paralyzes one’s reason.” Napoleon Hill

Like Mr. Hill feel for I have felt little, last in understanding the topic of
the subconscious mind. The realization that my subconscious mind is the very
heart of who I am. Wherever the location of the subconscious mind it receives,
files, and senses thoughts impressions, and input regardless of their nature
be it negative or positive emotions. Hill states, “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.”

I felt important to focus on what I am voluntarily planting in my subconscious
mind. I know that a better understanding of this medium of communication will
gain me an understanding of working my mind and Infinite Intelligence (which
is God to me). I realized there are two basic choices to live in the positive
emotions given by God or to fall into the deep ruts of the negative emotions
push upon us by the prince of this world

It is a fact that I fail to fill my mind with the emotions of desire, faith,
love sex, enthusiasm, romance, hope, and prosperity I am leaving the door wide
open for fear, jealousy, hatred, revenge, greed, superstition, and anger to t
ake over.

There is no void in the subconscious mind it is either filled with negative
emotions or positive emotions at the same, but never the same, there is no
room for both. Where negative emotions thrive, they can only be driven out
when positive emotions are multiplied by 10-fold.

Like two beakers of liquates, one a harmful and foul solution, the other
the purest water available. Both move toward a funnel with a valve for
directing the flow to one container. The valve is controlled by the strength
of the flowing of fluids and the best way to prevent the harmful solution
from getting to the container is to turn up the flow of the pure water with
more pressure. This is what I must do by increasing my self-talk by 10X to
push any negative emotions out of my subconscious mind.
