Unformatted text preview: 2. One’s subconscious mind, wherein is stored every sense impression and
thought impulse which ever reached the brain through any of the ﬁve senses
3. From the mind of some other person who has just released the thought, or
picture of the idea or concept, through conscious thought, or 163 NAPOLEON HILL THINK AND GROW RICH 4. From the other person’s subconscious storehouse. There are no other KNOWN
sources from which “inspired” ideas or “hunches” may be received.
The creative imagination functions best when the mind is vibrating (due to some
form of mind stimulation) at an exceedingly high rate. That is, when the mind is
functioning at a rate of vibration higher than that of ordinary, normal thought.
When brain action has been stimulated, through one or more of the ten mind stimulants, it has the effect of lifting the individual far above the horizon of ordinary
thought, and permits him to envision distance, scope, and quality of THOUGHTS
not available on the lower plane, such as that occupied while one is engaged in the
solution of the problems of business and professional routine.
When lifted to this higher level of thought, through any form of mind stimulation,
an individual occupies, relatively, the same position as one who has ascended in
an airplane to a height from which he may see over and beyond the horizon line
which limits his vision, while on the ground. Moreover, while on this higher level
of thought, the individual is not hampered or bound by any of the stimuli which
circumscribe and limit his vision while wrestling with the problems of gaining the
three basic necessities of food, clothing, and shelter. He is in a world of thought
in which the ORDINARY, work-a-day thoughts have been as effectively removed
as are the hills and valleys and other limitations of physical vision, when he rises
in an airplane.
While on this exalted plane of THOUGHT, the creative faculty of the mind is
given freedom for action. The way has been cleared for the sixth sense to function, it becomes receptive to ideas which could not reach the individual under any
other circumstances. The “sixth sense” is the faculty which marks the difference
between a genius and an ordinary individual.
The creative faculty becomes more alert and receptive to vibrations, originating
outside the individual’s subconscious mind, the more this faculty is used, and the
more the individual relies upon it, and makes demands upon it for thought impulses. This faculty can be cultivated and developed only through use.
That which is known as ones `conscience operates entirely through the faculty
of the sixth sense. The great artists, writers, musicians, and poets become great,
because they acquire the habit of relying upon the “still small voice” which speaks
from within, through the faculty of creative imagination. It is a fact well known
to people who have “keen” imaginations that their best ideas come through socalled “hunches.” 164 NAPOLEON HILL THINK AND GROW RICH There is a great orator who does not attain to greatness, until he closes his ey...
