Unformatted text preview: tarily reaches the subconscious mind and inﬂuences it with these
NO THOUGHT, whether it be 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. Stated differently,
all sense impressions which are perceived through the ﬁve senses, are stopped by
the CONSCIOUS thinking mind, and may be either passed on to the subconscious
mind, or rejected, at will. The conscious faculty serves, therefore, as an outerguard to the approach of the subconscious.
Nature has so built man that he has ABSOLUTE CONTROL over the material
which reaches his subconscious mind, through his ﬁve senses, although this is not
meant to be construed as a statement that man always EXERCISES this control.
In the great majority of instances, he does NOT exercise it, which explains why so
many people go through life in poverty.
Recall what has been said about the subconscious mind resembling a fertile garden spot, in which weeds will grow in abundance, if the seeds of more desirable
crops are not sown therein. AUTOSUGGESTION is the agency of control through
which an individual may voluntarily feed his subconscious mind on thoughts
of a creative nature, or, by neglect, permit thoughts of a destructive nature to
ﬁnd their way into this rich garden of the mind. You were instructed, in the last
of the six steps described in the chapter on Desire, to read ALOUD twice daily
the WRITTEN statement of your DESIRE FOR MONEY, and to SEE AND FEEL 58 NAPOLEON HILL THINK AND GROW RICH yourself ALREADY in possession of the money! By following these instructions,
you communicate the object of your DESIRE directly to your SUBCONSCIOUS
mind in a spirit of absolute FAITH.
Through repetition of this procedure, you voluntarily create thought habits which
are favorable to your efforts to transmute desire into its monetary equivalent.
Go back to these six steps described in chapter two, and read them again, very
carefully, before you proceed further. Then (when you come to it), read very carefully the four instructions for the organization of your “Master Mind” group, described in the chapter on Organized Planning. By comparing these two sets of
instructions with that which has been stated on auto-suggestion, you, of course,
will see that the instructions involve the application of the principle of auto-suggestion.
Remember, therefore, when reading aloud the statement of your desire (through
which you are endeavoring to develop a “money consciousness”), that the mere
reading of the words is of NO CONSEQUENCE-UNLESS you mix emotion, or
feeling with your words. If you repeat a million times the famous Emil Coué formula, “Day by day, in every way, I am getting better and better,” without mixing
emotion and FAITH with your words, you will experience no desirable results.
Your subconscious mind recognizes and acts upon ONLY thoughts which have
been well-mixed with emotion or feeling.
This is a fact of such importance as to warrant repetition in practically every chapter, because the lack of understanding of this is t...
