Patience, Faith, Persistence, Understanding, and a SINCERE DESIRE to communicate. Moreover, the approach can be made only by the individual himself. Paid
prayers are worthless. Inﬁnite Intelligence does no business by proxy. You either
go direct, or you do not communicate.

mind. The method by which you may communicate with Inﬁnite Intelligence is
very similar to that through which the vibration of sound is communicated by
radio. If you understand the working principle of radio, you of course, know that
sound cannot be communicated through the ether until it has been “stepped up,”
or changed into a rate of vibration which the human ear cannot detect.
The radio sending station picks up the sound of the human voice, and “scrambles,” or modiﬁes it by stepping up the vibration millions of times. Only in this
way, can the vibration of sound be communicated through the ether. After this
transformation has taken place, the ether “picks up” the energy (which originally
was in the form of vibrations of sound), carries that energy to radio receiving stations, and these receiving sets “step” that energy back down to its original rate of
vibration so it is recognized as sound.
The subconscious mind is the intermediary, which translates one’s prayers into
terms which Inﬁnite Intelligence can recognize, presents the message, and brings
back the answer in the form of a deﬁnite plan or idea for procuring the object of
Understand this principle, and you will know why mere words read from a prayer
book cannot, and will never serve as an agency of communication between the
mind of man and Inﬁnite Intelligence.
Before your prayer will reach Inﬁnite Intelligence (a statement of the author’s
theory only), it probably is transformed from its original thought vibration into
terms of spiritual vibration. Faith is the only known agency which will give your
thoughts a spiritual nature. FAITH and FEAR make poor bedfellows. Where one
is found, the other cannot exist. 186 NAPOLEON HILL THINK AND GROW RICH Chapter 13
THE BRAIN: A BROADCASTING AND RECEIVING STATION FOR
The Twelfth Step toward Riches
MORE than twenty years ago, the author, working in conjunction with the late
Dr. Alexander Graham Bell, and Dr. Elmer R. Gates, observed that every human
brain is both a broadcasting and receiving station for the vibration of thought.
Through the medium of the ether, in a fashion similar to that employed by the radio broadcasting principle, every human brain is capable of picking up vibrations
of thought which are being released by other brain...
