Your Forces and How to Use Them

In the present age, it is the power of mind that rules the world, and therefore it is evident that he who has acquired the best use of the power of mind, will realize the greatest success, and reach the highest places that attainment and achieve- ment hold in store. The man who wins is the man who can apply in practical life every part of his mental ability, and who can make every action of his mind tell.

3 Effective Mental Alchemy Techniques

If physical alchemy is the transmutation from copper (invaluable metal) to gold (valuable metal), then mental alchemy is the transmutation from undesirable mental states to desirable mental states.

“Mind (as well as metals and elements) may be transmuted, from state to state; degree to degree; condition to condition; pole to pole; vibration to vibration. True Hermetic Transmutation is a Mental Art” (The Kybalion)

If you are fearful, and you wish to become more courageous, the process of mental alchemy will be transmuting fear into courage.

There are many mental alchemy techniques, however in this article we will limit ourselves to three effective techniques in mental alchemy:

  1. Emotional Transmutation.
  2. Polarity Transmutation.
  3. Correspondence Transmutation.

1. Transmuting emotions into productivity.

Emotions are raw energy.

Any action performed under the influence of emotion is more powerful than an action that is not performed with emotion.

Love, romance, and sex are all emotions capable of driving men to heights of super achievement.

Think and Grow Rich

Mothers perform great feats when the fear of potential harm to her baby is present.

When fighting, any blow influenced by anger/rage is much stronger (however, less accurate).

With regard to memory, emotions make a sensation or idea easier to memorize as opposed to an emotionless idea (The more interest that is given into an idea, the more memorable that idea becomes).

This mental alchemy technique is concerned with; turning your emotions into energy and using that energy to become more productive.

EMOTION -> ENERGY -> PRODUCTIVITY

How to transmute emotions into productivity.

Maintain and Regulate Emotions.

You must maintain your emotions, rather than acting on each fleeting emotion. Instead of exhibiting a certain emotion when it feels normal to do so, keep it inside (this is not suppressing the emotion, this is storing it for later use).

Our purpose in this step is not to suppress our emotions forever, rather it is to acknowledge our emotions and store them for later transmutation into energy.

Convert Emotion into Energy.

Now that you have some emotions stored in your ’emotions bank’, you have to withdraw those emotions before you are to work on a project or require energy for some reason.

When you resurface previously buried emotions, you begin to experience those emotions. And since emotion is energy, you can then use that ’emotional energy’ when working on a project, creating art, studying, etc.

For example, Mary before painting an artwork takes a brief pause and unearths all those buried emotions. Upon unearthing her emotions, she begins to feel those emotions (positive or negative). She bathes herself in those emotions for a couple of moments, and now she possesses something called ’emotional energy’.

Focus Energy onto a Project.

Now that you possess the powerful ’emotional energy’, you must be sure not to waste it on any non-beneficial pursuit.

You must focus your emotional energy on your prioritized project.

If you paint, compose or write, use emotional energy to motivate you and to transform your emotions onto the canvas, on the song or the book.

2. Utilize the Principle of Polarity

“Everything is dual; everything has poles; everything has its pair of opposites; like and unlike are the same; opposites are identical in nature, but different in degree; extremes meet; all truths are but half-truths; all paradoxes may be reconciled.”

 The Kybalion.

The Principle of Polarity defines that everything has two sides, two aspects, two poles: a pair of opposites.

The Principle of Polarity shows the neophyte that he is able to transmute from one mental state to its opposite

Examples of this include:

  • Noise & Quiet
  • North & South
  • East & West
  • Positive & Negative
  • Hot & Cold
  • Light & Darkness
  • Truth & Falsehood
  • Sharp & Dull

How to transmute from one mental state to its opposite

Knowledge and continual remembrance of the Principle of Polarity is half the work in transmuting from mental state to mental state.

If you are in a depressed mental state, it is wise to remind yourself of the opposite mental state (joy).

By remembering the opposite mental state, you are making it known that there is always another mental state.

And when the other mental state is considered, the individual can subconsciously work towards attaining that state.

The other half of transmuting from state to state is ‘performing actions that correspond to your desired state’

This involves immersing yourself into the desired mental state so that you can manifest that desired state. It is well known that if your thoughts, body language and behaviors are positive then so shall your mental state be.

For instance:

Just as someone who is throwing a tantrum and screaming has put himself in the Anger state, one can perform actions that could put him in the Love state.

If you wish to enter into a ‘Love’ state of mind, perform acts of love.

Give to charity, help out people, perform acts of kindness, be caring and attentive to people’s problems and so on.

Also, this technique could also include thinking, visualizing and reminiscing on his own experiences with love.

He may remember the times he was loving to others, or others were loving to him.

He could visualize being loving to someone else. And he may plan on being loving in the future.

All of these mental actions have the ability to switch his mental state from Anger/Hate to Love

3. Utilize the Principle of Correspondence

“As above, so below; as below, so above.”

The Kybalion.

This statement could be re-formatted as such:

‘As outside, so inside; as inside, so outside.’

or

‘As in the conscious mind, so in the subconscious mind; As in the subconscious mind, so in the conscious mind.’

So whatever state the conscious mind is in for an extended amount of time, the subconscious mind will adapt to and whatever state the subconscious mind is in, the conscious mind will adapt to.

“Every thought or action which is not harmonious, whether through ignorance or design, will result in discord and limitation of all kinds”

Murphy, J (2011).

Daily behavior and speech is absorbed by the subconscious, and then whatever is registered in the subconscious will be manifested later on.

The principle is like a cycle, the contents of the (sub) conscious may change but the cycle is everlasting.

The Subconscious and Conscious Mind Diagram

Hence by understanding the interdependent, yet interrelated nature of the subconscious and the conscious mind, we come to a point where there are two methods of influencing behavior.

The first method is using the subconscious mind to influence the conscious mind and the second method is using the conscious mind to influence the subconscious mind.

How to use the Principle of Correspondence to transmute from state to state.

  • Create Good Habits & Leave Bad Habits

Whatever you busy yourself with consciously, will manifest in the subconscious mind.

Changing your habits, changes your mental programming.

It is important to engage yourself with good habits so that the subconscious mind is programmed positively.

And, you should refrain from bad habits as you do not want to program the subconscious mind with negativity and a bad attitude.

  • Make Changes to Your External Environment

The subconscious mind is like a sponge, it absorbs any external stimulus and imprints your mind with such stimulus.

If your external environment is clean, peaceful, and organized, so will be your mind.

What is the External Environment?

The External Environment is anything outside your internal environment (the mind).

You can physically observe your External Environment (your room, your house, your workplace, the people you associate with, the places you visit, etc.)

By making changes to your external environment, you also make changes to your internal environment.

  • Clean your room daily.
  • Visit good places/venues.
  • Be vigilant of what you consume. (media, foods, music, etc.)
  • Accept and Reject Heterosuggestions

If anyone gives you a negative suggestion reject it, and if anyone gives you a positive suggestion accept it.

Remember, whatever is accepted by the conscious mind is accepted by the subconscious.

If you are given a negative suggestion, consciously deny it. Tell yourself ‘I am not that way, and those individuals who give me the negative suggestion are wrong’.

When people give you a positive suggestion/compliment, accept it and tell yourself ‘I am that way, they are correct’.

  • Alter a negative statement to a positive statement.

Instead of saying something like “I can’t do this”, say “I can do this” or “I can do this if I try hard”.

If you find yourself saying a negative statement, stop in the middle of the statement and either alter the statement or start a new positive statement.

Joseph Murphy (2011) mentions a story of a girl looking at an expensive bag through a store window.

She was about to say, “I can’t afford that bag”, when instead she said “That bag is mine. It is for sale. I accept it mentally, and my subconscious sees to it that I receive it”.

At eight o’clock Christmas Eve her fiancé presented her with a bag the same as the one she looked at in the morning.

“Never finish a negative statement; reverse it immediately, and wonders will happen to your life” (Murphy, 2011).

Recap

In this article we covered three main mental alchemy techniques:

  1. Emotional Transmutation
  2. Polarity Transmutation
  3. Correspondence Transmutation

Emotional Transmutation involves converting emotions into an ’emotion infused energy’ and using that powerful energy towards a project or goal.

Polarity Transmutation involves switching from one mental state to its opposite through simply acknowledging the opposite mental state and performing actions that correspond to your desired mental state.

Correspondence Transmutation involves reprogramming your subconscious mind so that your conscious mind is operating on the lines of your will and desire.

The 5 Principles of the Subconscious Mind.

Introduction

Many people are becoming aware of the subconscious mind and understand how important it is to work with the subconscious in order to better their lives. However, with the extensive literature surrounding the topic, people are becoming confused as to what the subconscious mind really is and how they can effectively use it.

This piece aims to return the basics and the original writers to shed some clarity on the subconscious mind. The Principles presented herein are not methods or ideas, they are the essential reality of how the subconscious mind operates in relation to the conscious mind.

The Five Principles for working with Subconscious Mind are:

  1. Correspondence – As Within, So Without – As Below, So Below
  2. Filter – The conscious mind acts as a filter, allowing and disallowing information to be transmitted to the subconscious mind.
  3. Always Active – The subconscious mind is always active. All external stimuli are absorbed by the subconscious at all times.
  4. Conflict – A conflict between the conscious and the subconscious thwarts an individual’s effort in programming the subconscious mind.
  5. Dominant Idea – The subconscious mind gives preference to the dominant idea.

Throughout this piece, these five important principles will be explained. We will be using two books to help elucidate our arguments; Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill and The Power of Your Subconscious Mind by Joseph Murphy,

If you would like a comprehensive book summary for both books, please click here & here.

Correspondence

As Inside, So Outside; As Above, So Below.

There is a direct connection between the conscious and the subconscious mind.

Whatever happens consciously will be registered into the subconscious mind. And vice versa; whatever is in the subconscious mind will manifest itself on the conscious mind.

If you think, speak, act and live in a negative manner, that will be the seed planted in your mind. As you continue to nurture this seed, you grow an undesirable plant. And that plant represents an undesirable and miserable life.

However, if you regularly think and speak positively, you plant a seed that will grow into a beautiful plant; that being a desirable and fulfilling life.

The conscious and subconscious mind are interdependent on each other.

The conscious mind relies on the subconscious mind for programs.

These programs are also known as habits. Once a thought pattern or a behaviour pattern is established in the subconscious mind, said thought or said behaviour becomes a habit.

Also, the conscious mind can create programs for the subconscious mind.

By sheer willpower and repetition, one can develop a program for the subconscious. This is essentially how habits are formed. One repeats a certain action for a long amount of time until that action becomes involuntary.

Reflect on the time when you first tried to ride a bike. You needed to focus and perform mental checks all the time. As you followed that process for an extended amount of time, the action of riding a bike became natural and involuntary. You no longer need to focus on hand placements and the movements of your legs, you hop on and ride away.

There are two ways to apply this law:

The Outward – Inward Approach.

Think about an action that you perform involuntarily, for example, checking your phone right after you wake up. If you are able to change that action you can reprogram your subconscious to perform a different action each time you wake up.

If the conscious mind prompts a certain behaviour or thought pattern or is exposed to a certain environment regularly, the subconscious mind.

Based on this, it seems important to a) repeat something you wish to ingrain in your subconscious b) surround yourself with the things of which you would like to ingrain in your subconscious.

The Inward – Outward Approach.

This approach looks at changing your inner programs to change your outer behaviours and actions.

This approach looks at autosuggestion to change the subconscious mind.

Autosuggestion:

Many contemporary writers have given detailed steps for autosuggestion; however I find that these detailed steps are unnecessary.

Autosuggestion is a term which applies to all suggestions and all self-administered stimuli which reach one’s mind through the five senses” (Hill, 1983)

The key elements of autosuggestion are:

High Suggestibility – For the subconscious mind to pick up suggestions, the subconscious mind needs to be more accessible than the conscious mind. The conscious mind must be submerged temporarily. This is done through meditation, sleeping, hypnosis and general relaxation. At these moments you have high suggestibility and any suggestion made will reach the subconscious mind easily.

Emotion – “Plain, unemotional words do not influence the subconscious mind” (Hill, 1983). Many people utilise autosuggestion incorrectly by not including emotion with the statements that they are saying. An autosuggestion without emotion is considered to be a futile autosuggestion. In the following chapters we will explain why a statement without emotion will fail to make its way to the subconscious mind.

Faith – “When faith is blended with thought, the subconscious mind instantly picks up the vibration, translates it into its spiritual equivalent, and transmits it to Infinite Intelligence, as in the case of prayer” (Hill, 1983). If you do not believe that your autosuggestion will become true, then it will not become true. If you do believe it will become true, then it will become true.

There are a few other tips for effective autosuggestion, however the above three elements are the most important.

Filter

The conscious mind acts as a filter, allowing and disallowing information to be transmitted to the subconscious mind.

Sometimes external stimulus is not transmitted to the subconscious and that is due to the filtering process of the conscious mind.

If the conscious mind finds some information to be untrue, then that information is rejected.

Many people make affirmations for wealth in the present tense.

A common one is ‘I am wealthy’. Later on, they may look into their wallets and find nothing there. At this point there is a conflict. You said you are wealthy, but you really aren’t. With this actual lack of wealth comes the feeling of the lack of wealth.

An affirmation mixed with faith and emotion is much more powerful than a vain affirmation.

ALL THOUGHTS WHICH HAVE BEEN EMOTIONALIZED, (given feeling) AND MIXED WITH FAITH, begin immediately to translate themselves into their physical equivalent or counterpart” (Hill, 1983).

Many people try to deceive their minds by repeating a statement over and over.

This is futile.

The only way that affirmations could work is by attaching an emotion & faith to the affirmation. The best way to attach an emotion & faith to an affirmation is to visualise a scenario in which the affirmation has come to pass.

Visualisation is the closest you can get to actually experiencing a scenario.

Visualization is simply the creation of a strong Mental Image of the thing desired and perfecting it each until it becomes almost clear as an existing material thing. Then the Visualization tends to Materialize itself–that is, it begins to build around itself (the) actual material conditions corresponding with the mental framework” (Atkinson, 1909)

If you want to feel rich, visualise yourself as rich and iron out all the details; what car are you driving? What clothes you are wearing? How are you obtaining your wealth? And so on.

When visualising the money, you intend to accumulate, see yourself rendering the service, or delivering the merchandise you intend to give in return for this money. This is important! (Hill, 1983).

The information that should not be allowed to make its way into the subconscious mind includenegative dialogue phrases, negative visuals and negative music.

The filter process plays an important part regarding the rejection of information into the subconscious mind.

If one does not use his conscious mind to actively reject such external stimuli then that information could easily enter the subconscious mind.

Check regularly on the negative suggestions people make to you. You do not have to be influenced by destructive heterosuggestions” (Murphy, 1963)

Always Active

The subconscious mind is always active. All external stimuli are absorbed by the subconscious at all times.

The first thing to realize is that your subconscious mind is always working” (Murphy, 1963)

Anything that is sensed or felt is transmitted to the subconscious mind, even if such sensations or stimulus are not consciously registered.

Hence it becomes essential to take heed of your environment.

Are you in an environment that fosters positive experiences or negative experiences?

Are you actively watching or listening to media that is of a good or bad nature?

Are you with people that speak and act positively or negatively?

It is important to spend most of your time in a good environment, however this cannot be the case for most of the time. Undoubtedly you will find yourself in an undesirable environment, and it is important that at that moment you should remain aware and vigilant. Mentally reaffirm to yourself that such environments are not good and never allow yourself to get comfortable in such environments.

The mind works off habits and familiarity. Whatever is familiar is what the mind will seek, and whatever the mind seeks, is what the person himself will seek.

An important question arises here:

Are people the controllers of their mind or is the mind the controller of the person?

The answer is both.

We live based on the patterns and attitudes submerged in our subconscious mind. Hence, we say the mind controls the person. However, the person is fully capable of changing those patterns and attitudes and therefore we can also say that the person controls the mind.

The subconscious mind controls a person’s actions and behaviours without him even realising.

We perform certain things every day without a voluntary will to do so. We pull out our phones in certain situations, we wake up and perform the same behaviours every morning and before we sleep, we perform the same behaviours.

However, through self-awareness one can pick up on certain habits, and through willpower and determination one can replace a regularly performed behaviour with a more desirable behaviour. Then the mind will pick up on the new pattern and sooner or later one finds himself performing the new behaviour involuntarily.

To conclude; we find that it is important to practice self-awareness and reflect on the environments you spend most of your time. It is not wise to allow your mind to become too familiar with an undesirable environment, it is better for one to choose himself which environments the mind can become familiar with.

Conflict

A conflict between the conscious and the subconscious thwarts an individual’s effort in programming the subconscious mind.

This is an essential law for those who are struggling to see results from their efforts in reprogramming their subconscious mind.

For instance:

You desire wealth and proceed to perform affirmations, autosuggestions, and other techniques in order to attract wealth. However, at the same time you worry and fret about the lack of wealth, you also criticise and feel a tint of animosity upon seeing others who are wealthy.

Joseph Murphy (1963) writes; “This is why they lack; they are condemning the thing they desire and want.”

At this point there is a conflict. You consciously wish and desire for wealth, yet your subconscious has already associated wealth with worry, stress and animosity.

To effectively program your subconscious mind to attract wealth, your subconscious mind must have a completely positive association with wealth.

You cannot attract what you criticize.

You cannot attract what you worry about.

You cannot attract what you dislike.

Dominant Idea

The subconscious mind gives preference to the dominant idea.

Your subconscious is always controlled by the dominant idea.” (Murphy, 1963)

This principle leads on from the previous one (Conflict).

When there is a conflict of ideas & interests, the subconscious mind will give preference to the dominant idea.

What makes an idea or proposition dominant ?

Emotion: A thought backed by emotion is more powerful than a thought with no emotion.

The subconscious acts first on the dominating desires which have been mixed with emotional feelings such as faith” (Hill, 1983).

Previously Rooted Ideas: An idea that already has roots in the subconscious mind is more dominant than an idea which has no roots in the subconscious mind.

Repetition: The repetition of a proposition gives that proposition dominance.

It is a well-known fact that one comes, finally, to BELIEVE whatever one repeats to one’s self, whether the statement be true or false (Hill, 1983).

If you wish to reprogram your attitudes and beliefs, you must keep this principle in mind.

You already have dominant attitudes that currently shape your life. Reprogramming these deeply rooted attitudes is no easy feat.

Affirmations and autosuggestion are not enough. You must live up to your desired attitude.

An example.

One person desires to reprogram his subconscious mind to love money and view money as good.

For him to live up to his desired attitude, he must:

  • See money as good instead of an evil
  • Be happy for a person if he is successful and rich instead of criticising him.
  • Not stress or fret when he finds out that he has low or no money.
  • Not rush to make money, rather he should live naturally and work within his limits.

In conclusion, one should associate money with good in all circumstances.

If you wish to unroot a plant that has had roots in the ground for a long time, you will know that you will have to use more strength and power.

It is the same circumstance with the subconscious mind.

To replace a deeply rooted attitude with another one, you must use much strength and power.

Conclusion

The subconscious mind has become a popular topic amongst those who are keen to improve themselves, however due to the proliferation of content on this topic, the true principles of autosuggestion, affirmations and the subconscious mind has been corrupted with opinions and false attributions.

This small piece brought back the essential principles for working with the subconscious mind, back into focus.

The main principles are as follows:

1. Correspondence – As Within, So Without – As Below, So Below

2. Filter – The conscious mind acts as a filter, allowing and disallowing information to be transmitted to the subconscious mind.

3. Always Active – The subconscious mind is always active. All external stimuli are absorbed by the subconscious at all times.

4. Conflict – A conflict between the conscious and the subconscious thwarts an individual’s effort in programming the subconscious mind.

5. Dominant Idea – The subconscious mind gives preference to the dominant idea.

We advise our readers to read the classical books on the subconscious mind as contemporary books are filled with fluff and icing instead of base ingredients and flour.

Practical Mind Reading

There can be no doubt that our
psychical force creates a movement of the ether, which transmits itself afar like all movements of ether and becomes perceptible to b rains in harmony with our own.


The transformation of a psychic action into an ethereal movement, and the reverse,
may be analogous to what takes place on a telephone, where the receptive plate,
which is identical with the plate at the other end, reconstructs the sonorous movement transmitted, not by means of sound, but by electricity.”

The mind of one person acts like a ” transmitter” of the wireless telegraph, while the mind of the other acts as a “receiver” of the same set of instruments.

Chapter 1: The Treasure House Within You

There are two different types of men:

Magnetized Men, who are full of confidence and faith. They are able to attract opportunities, wealth, health just as a magnet attracts magnetized metals.

Demagnetized Men, who are full of fears and doubts. They attract failure, laziness and poverty. They repel success, wealth and prosperity just as a magnet repels another magnet with the same pole.

The people who use the subconscious mind are able to heal their own bodies, attract an object, an emotional state, a partner, receive many ideas and inspiration, etc.

The law of your mind is the law of belief.

Start by believing in the power of your mind, then believe in belief itself and lastly believe that you can change your situation, no matter how trapped you seem.

All your experiences, events, conditions and acts are reactions of your subconscious mind to your thoughts.”

The subconscious mind converts your thoughts into a physical reality.

Say, you want to become more productive, and you think, visualize and feel the state of productivity constantly, your subconscious mind marks productivity as a priority and hence it does everything in its power to help you become productive.

Your mind, habits and behavior will work for the single purpose of productivity.

Use this fact to better your life, focus and fill your thoughts with the things you wish to attract and the subconscious mind will work day and night for your demand.

All your experiences, events, conditions, and acts are the reactions of your subconscious mind to your thoughts.

A good example to further your understanding of the relationship between the conscious and the subconscious is the work of a gardener. Your mind is a garden, and you are the gardener. You plant seeds (thoughts) in your subconscious mind all day long.

Those seeds after time, will sprout into a small plant (behavior). If those seeds remain for even longer the small plant becomes a large plant(habit).

As you sow in your subconscious mind, so shall you reap in your body and environment.”

Foolish men only try to change a situation externally (work hard).
Wise men change their situations internally and externally (work smart).

Chapter 2: How Your Own Mind Works.


Once the subconscious mind accepts an idea it begins to implement it, regardless if the idea is a positive or negative idea.

The subconscious mind simply absorbs what the conscious mind habitually agrees on.

The subconscious mind works by association of ideas and draws from every piece of knowledge and every experience from your life.

Sometimes the subconscious mind may bring immediate results, at other times it may take days, weeks or even longer. This is solely based on the nature of the request and the required tools to fulfill that request.

If you wish to use the subconscious mind to eliminate fear, this may take a day or two. This is because fear is an aspect of the mind, most times there is nothing to be feared. The subconscious could easily manage this, sending messages to the conscious brain to loosen up and become less tense.

However some requests may take a while longer, for example you place the idea of earning a lot of money in your subconscious.

The subconscious mind will work to bring that along, and you will see that there will be changes in your behavior and habit. You may be more productive and more efficient, hence upon your manager seeing this, he might give you a pay rise. Or you may have a good flow of ideas, increased energy, clear mind so that you can focus on starting a business.

If you place the idea of becoming a strong individual with a toned body and big muscles, the subconscious mind will make working out easier for you in terms of motivation and energy.

You won’t become strong overnight, you will start to work out smarter and faster. Your life will revolve around becoming stronger. Whenever someone offers you an unhealthy snack you will refuse, even though you would have previously accepted.

Many people complain and bicker, mentioning that the usage of the subconscious mind never work. That is because they do not understand the true principles regarding the subconscious mind.

The Nature of the Subconscious Mind

The subconscious mind does not work on magic. “It draws on the infinite power, energy, and wisdom within you.”

Many people are under the foolish assumption that the subconscious mind will manifest anything in a short amount of time. While it may be true that someone else may give you what you have been
trying to manifest, sometimes the subconscious mind will give you all the tools required to manifest your request.

A common request that people wish for is wealth.

Sometimes you may receive that money directly, depending on the amount. But most times the subconscious will give your traits, qualities and habits required to achieve that wealth.

Relationship between the conscious and the subconscious.

I can easily make the assumption that people who wish to harness the power of the subconscious, use affirmations thinking that it will grant them what they desire.

We have heard this everywhere, ‘repeat what you wish to acquire and the subconscious will work on that for you’.

Affirmations do have potential to work, and are effective. However, I believe people do not really grasp the theory and principles behind affirmations, hence limiting their chances of success in using affirmations. For affirmations to work, your conscious mind must believe & have faith in what you are repeating.

Most people repeat “I am wealthy”, while they know deep down they are not. They look into their wallets every day and feel the lack of wealth. Hence, the subconscious mind will not receive the affirmation.

Your subconscious mind takes the orders you give it based upon what your conscious mind believes and accepts as true

How to use affirmations properly?

Repeat AN affirmation while visualizing & feeling the fulfillment of the affirmation.

When you are visualizing you should attempt to the feel the emotions that correspond to the fulfillment of desire.

All thoughts which have been mixed emotionalized (given feeling) and mixed with faith, begin immediately to translate themselves into their physical equivalent or counterpart.”

NAPOLEON HILL

The success of this technique is dependent on the level of visualization someone has.

When visualizing, make sure you visualize the details and make sure the visualization is similar to how the scenario will unfold in real life.

Visualize yourself in the possession of money in an environment you know and frequent in your life, visualize what you are wearing at the time and visualize it as if it was a movie about yourself.

Make general affirmations.

Remember what we said about the issue of people making affirmations and not consciously believing in them. The following technique is aimed at overcoming that barrier.

By making general affirmations, your conscious mind cannot pick up on the validity of the statement.

For instance, a general affirmation that is mentioned in the book is, “By day and night I am being prospered in all of my interests”.

Heterosuggestions are suggestions from other people that influence an individual’s thinking patterns and attitude.

Richard Bergh: Hypnotisk seans. NM 185

Your parents, environment and educators may have been giving you suggestions and certain thinking patterns since you were very young. And you might have been operating through these thinking patterns throughout your life.

For instance, a parent keeps mentioning the statement ‘money is the root of all evil’ in front of a six-year-old child.

That child will grow up with a lack of money, because the subconscious mind holds the program that money is bad and hence keeps him away from money.

It is incumbent for us today to examine if we have any negative programs passed on to us from our parents or our teachers.

To identify negative programs, we must look into our lives and see what aspects of life are we
constantly failing at. Are we failing at securing and maintaining wealth, are we failing at creating strong, close relationships, or are we unable to lose weight or get in shape.

Once you identify an area that you constantly fail at, most likely that it is because of a negative program that was fed to you.

However, as we get older it is important to reject heterosuggestions. For example, If people call you aloof or weird you mustn’t accept that statement. If you continue to reject those statements, that negative program will not enter your subconscious.

However, if people say good things about you, you should accept it. By accepting it you are allowing a positive suggestion to enter your subconscious. And hence you will emulate that positive suggestion more often.

The suggestions of others in themselves have absolutely no power whatever over you except the power that you give them through your own thoughts. You have to give your mental consent; you have to entertain the thought. Then it becomes your thought, and you do the thinking. Remember, you have the capacity to choose.

Choose life ! Choose love ! Choose health !”


Chapter 3: The Miracle Working Power of Your Subconscious


You can discover the miracle working power of your subconscious by plainly stating to your subconscious prior to sleep that you wish a certain specific thing accomplished.”

You will find that the forces within you will be released, leading to the desired result.

The Law of Correspondence is known as; As within, so without; as above so below.

Or,

As in heaven [your own mind], so on earth [in your body and environment]

Whatever is impressed in your subconscious mind is externally manifested.

That is why the American Essayist Ralph Waldo Emerson said,

Man is what he thinks all day long”.


How to convey the idea of perfect health to your subconscious mind?

Relax yourself mentally and physically.

Once you are in a sleepy/drowsy state, mention a detailed suggestion you wish to give the subconscious.

The one Joseph Murphy mentions in the book is; “The perfection of God is now being expressed through me. The idea of perfect health is now filling my subconscious mind. The image God has of me is a perfect image and my subconscious mind recreates my body in perfect accordance with the perfect accordance with the perfect image held in the mind of God.”

Another method in conveying the idea of perfect health to your subconscious mind is through scientific visualization.

To do this, you must be in a relaxed state, then begin to visualize yourself healthy.

Chapter 5: Mental Healings in Modern Times

The kinetic action of the subconscious mind continues throughout your sleep-time period. Hence, give the subconscious mind something good to work on as you drop off into slumber.”

Imagine the end result you wish to acquire and feel the emotion of its reality.

Chapter 6: Practical Techniques in Mental Healing

Nothing happens by chance. This is a world of law and order.”

Every Cause has its Effect; every Effect has its Cause; everything happens according to Law; Chance is but a name for Law not recognized; there are many planes of causation, but nothing escapes the Law.

The KYBALION

The Passing Over Technique for Creating a Program in the Subconscious.

To use the passing over technique you must be in a reverie-like state (daydream).

Think about what you want and see it coming to you from that moment.

For example, you have a cold that you wish to get rid of. You may repeat,

It is passing away now”.

The Visualization Technique

Visualize that which you want to acquire in complete detail.

For example, you want to land a job at a prestigious firm.

Visualize yourself dressed in a certain type of clothing while parking at a car park 5 minutes away from the office. Visualize yourself interacting with people in the elevator as you go up. Visualize everything you can think of.

A mental picture held in the mind, backed by faith will come to pass.”

Faith is of utmost important. You cannot perform any subconscious programming techniques without faith.

Napoleon Hill mentions in the book Think & Grow Rich:

Faith is the head chemist of the mind. When faith is blended with thought, the subconscious mind instantly picks up the vibration, translates it into its spiritual equivalent, and transmits it to Infinite Intelligence, as in the case of prayer.

The Baudouin Technique:

Enter into a drowsy, sleepy state, or a state akin to sleep.

Sum up your desire into a mantra, or a simple statement (‘Wealth’ or ‘Wealth & Health)

Repeat it over and over again as a lullaby.

Chapter 7: The Tendency of the Subconscious is Lifeward.

Your subconscious speaks to you in intuitions, impulses, hutches, in-limitations, urges, and ideas.

Chapter 8: How to Get the Results You Want

The subconscious mind follows the dominant idea in your mind.

Everyone has money and success on their mind, but they cannot acquire it because it is not the dominant idea in the mind. They must cast away all short term desires and focus on their main desire in life.

Also, people spend time thinking about money, but they also think about their lack of money at the same time. This is a sure way to trap yourself in a loop of undesirable manifestations.

Avoid conflict between the conscious and subconscious mind.

You can avoid conflict between your conscious and subconscious in a sleepy state.

Imagine the fulfilment of your desire over and over again prior to sleep.

Chapter 9: How to Use the Power of Your Subconscious for Wealth.

Repeat the following statement for about five minutes to yourself three or four times a day, “Wealth — Success.”

The reason for this particular statement instead of the statement “I am wealthy” is
because if you repeat the latter statement, there will be a conflict between the two minds.

Hence, these types of affirmations will not be of any use.

When you repeat the words, “Wealth”, you instil in yourself the feeling of wealth.

The feeling of wealth produces wealth.

Another method in avoiding mental conflict is by making general affirmations.

“By day and by night I am being prospered by all my interests”

This affirmation will not arouse any argument because it does not contradict your
subconscious mind’s impression of financial lack.

One preventative factor of wealth is envy.

The way to overcome this emotion is to say to yourself, “Isn’t it wonderful! I rejoice in that man’s propensity. I wish for him greater and greater wealth“.

Chapter 10: Your Right to Be Rich.

People have been conditioned to hate money.

They refer to money as “filthy lucre” or “the love of money is the root of all evil.

Another reason they do not prosper is that they have a sneaky subconscious feeling
there is some virtue in poverty.

This subconscious pattern may be due to early childhood training, superstition, or it could be based on a false interpretation of scriptures.

You must never criticize what you desire as you cannot attract what you criticize.

It is important that you change your attitude and subconscious to possess the right beliefs about money.

Use a selection of the following statements several times a day:

I like money, I love it, I use it wisely, constructively, and judiciously. Money is constantly circulating in my life. I release it with joy, and it returns to me multiplied in a wonderful way. It is good and very good. Money flows to me in avalanches of abundance. I use it for good only, and I am grateful for my good and for the riches of my mind.

Chapter 11: Your Subconscious Mind as a Partner in Success.

How to achieve success

The first step to success is to find out the work you love to do, then you must pursue that type of work.

“The process of realizing your Lifes Task comes in three stages:

First you must connect or reconnect with your inclinations, that sense of uniqueness.

Second, . . . you must look at the career path you are already on or are about to begin. The choice of this path-or redirection of it-is critical.

Finally, you must see your career more as a journey with twists and turns rather than a straight line.”

Robert GREENE

The second step to success is to specialize in some particular branch of work and know more about it than anyone else.

You must concentrate your forces into one niche. By doing this you become a master at something that the competition is not.

The 23rd Law in the book: 48 Laws of Power mentions –

Conserve your forces and energies by keeping them concentrated at their strongest point. You gain more by finding a rich mine and mining it deeper, than by flitting from one shallow mine to another-intensity defeats extensity every time

Robert Greene


The third step is the most important one.

You must be sure that the thing you want to do does not redound to your success only. Your desire must not be selfish; it must benefit humanity.

We advise our readers to read the following paragraphs, as the western world have never spread this advice to the people.

Is it the ambition of your life to accumulate great wealth, and thus to acquire a great name and along with it happiness and satisfaction? Then remember that whether these will come to you will depend entirely upon the use and disposition you make of your wealth. If you regard it as a private trust to be used for the highest good of mankind, then well and good, these will come to you.

If your object, however, is to pile it up, to hoard it, then neither will come; and you will find it a life as unsatisfactory as one can live. There is, there can be, no greatness in things, in material things, of themselves. The greatness is determined entirely by the use and disposition made of them. The greatest greatness and the only true greatness in the world is unselfish love and service and self-devotion to one’s fellow-man.

This is from Ralph Waldo Trine’s book What the World is A-Seeking: Or, The Vital Law of True Life, True Greatness Power and Happiness.



Chapter 12: Scientists Use the Subconscious Mind.

Here is a simple technique you can use to receive guidance on any subject: Quiet the mind and still the body. Tell the body to relax; it has to obey you. It has no volition, initiative, or self-conscious intelligence.

Try to solve it with your conscious mind. Think how happy you would be about the perfect solution. Sense the feeling you would have if the perfect answer were yours now.

You delay the answer by thinking it will take a long time or that it is a major problem. Your subconscious has no problem it knows only the answer.


Chapter 13: Your Subconscious and the Wonders of Sleep.

You build your own future in your mind.

Whatever you habitually think about shall come to pass.

Remember that the future, the result of your habitual thinking, is already in your
mind except when you change it through prayer

Chapter 14: Your Subconscious Mind and Marital Problems.


• How to attract the ideal husband

Begin now to impress your subconscious mind with the qualities and characteristics
you desire in a man.

The nagging wife.

Many times the reason the wife nags is because she gets no attention. Oftentimes, it is a craving for love and affection. Give your wife attention and show your appreciation. Praise and exalt all her many good points.

• The brooding husband.

The man who is brooding, bitter, and resentful can swallow his sharp remarks, abate his anger, and he can go to great lengths to be considerate, kind, and courteous.

Chapter 15: Your Subconscious Mind and Your Happiness.

Marcus Aurelius, the great Roman philosopher once said:

“A man’s life is what his thoughts make of it”

Meditations

These days there are people who wish to achieve happiness by the purchasing of goods and attainment of wealth. They will never become happy through the attainment of wealth.

Wealth in and of itself will not make you happy,

The happiest are usually the best in the art of living life successfully.

You must choose happiness.

Happiness is a habit.

There is no block to your happiness. External things are not causative; these are effects, not cause. Take your cue from the only creative principle within you. Your thought is cause, and a new cause produces a new effect. Choose happiness.

Chapter 16: Your Subconscious Mind and Harmonious Human Relations.

The good you do for others comes back to you in like measure; and the evil you do returns to you by the law of your own mind. If a man cheats and deceives another, he is actually cheating and deceiving himself.

The daily headlines made him sick.

It is common knowledge that the news is in the business of fear and hatred. They know fear and negative emotions sell more than anything else so they fill our sceens with negativity.

Look at this short story:

A woman wrote to me about her husband, saying that he goes into a rage when he reads what certain newspaper columnists write in the newspaper. She added that this constant reaction of anger and suppressed rage on his part brought on bleeding ulcers, and his physician recommended an emotional reconditioning.

I invited this man to see me and I explained to him the way his mind functions indicating how emotionally immature it was to get angry when others write articles with which he disapproves or disagrees.

He began to realize that he should give the newspaperman freedom to express himself even though the latter disagreed with him politically, religiously, or in any other way. In the same manner, the newspaperman would give him freedom to write a letter to the newspaper disagreeing with his published statements.

He learned that he could disagree without being disagreeable.

To do so would mean that you had descended to that state of low mental vibration and become one with the negative atmosphere of theother. Too many times you will see yourself or others being affected by other people’s opinions and criticism.

Give no one in all the world the power to deflect you from your goal, your aim in life, which is to express your hidden talents to the world, to serve humanity, and to reveal more and more of God’s wisdom, truth, and beauty to all people in the world

On becoming emotionally mature.

What the other person says or does cannot really annoy or irritate you except you permit him to disturb you.

When you become emotionally mature, you do not respond negatively to the criticism and resentment of others. To do so would mean that you had descended to that state of low mental vibration and become one with the negative atmosphere of the other.

Be careful of social media and advertising.

Joseph Murphy is not present in current times when the proliferation of advertising and social media posts is causing a circus of misery among young people & old people.

The advice is the same. Either delete social media or be careful of what you see. The eyes are among the first pathways to jealously and jealously is among the first pathways to misery.

Advertisers bombard us with highly effective subliminal messages. Our continual connection to social media makes us prone to new forms of viral emotional effects. These are not media designed for calm reflection. With their constant presence, we have less and less mental space to step back and think.

Chapter 17: How to Use Your Subconscious Mind for Forgiveness.

You cannot be hurt by criticism when you know that you are master of your thoughts, reactions, and emotions. This gives you the opportunity to pray and bless the other, thereby blessing yourself.

To forgive is to give something for. Give love, peace, joy, wisdom, and all the blessings of life to the other, until there is no sting left in your mind. This is really the acid test of forgiveness.

Chapter 18: How Your Subconscious Removes Mental Blocks.

How to break or build a habit

Habit is the function of your subconscious mind. You learned to swim, ride a bicycle, dance, and drive a car by consciously doing these things over and over again until they established tracks in your subconscious mind.

Then, the automatic habit action of your subconscious mind took over. This is sometimes called second nature, which is a reaction of your subconscious mind to your thinking and acting.

If you repeat a negative thought or act over a period of time, you will be under the compulsion of a habit. The law of your subconscious is compulsion.

When you have an intense hunger to overcome anything in your life, there will be a path out.

However, if you don’t have an intense hunger, then the opportunity will not present itself.

Consider this statement:

“All big things come from small beginnings. The seed of every habit is a single, tiny decision. But as that decision is repeated, a habit sprouts and grows stronger. Roots entrench themselves and branches grow. The task of breaking a bad habit is like uprooting a powerful oak within us. And the task of building a good habit is like cultivating a delicate flower one day at a time.”

Atomic Habits

Chapter 19: How to Use Your Subconscious Mind to Remove Fear.

Ralph Waldo Emerson, philosopher and poet, said, “Do the thing you are afraid to do, and the death of fear is certain.”

Thoughts enveloped in the powerful emotion of fear are realized in the subconscious mind.

For instance if you fear you may fail a test, even though you have all the content memorized and have practiced well. The subconscious will place mental blocks while you are doing your exam as you imprinted the fear of failing in your subconscious mind.

There are two types of fear:

Normal Fear: This is the natural fear that is in every human. This fear is for self-preservation. If we hear a loud sound we are scared, we switch into a fight or flight mode in order to handle the situation.

Abnormal Fear: Abnormal fear takes place when man lets his imagination run riot.

The solution to abnormal fear.

When fear arises, there immediately comes with it a desire for some-thing opposite to the thing feared. Place your attention on the thing immediately desired. Get absorbed and engrossed in your desire, knowing that the subjective always overturns the objective.

A well known method that psychologists advise their patients with is exposure.

You can never leave a fear a behind without facing it.

Consider the following exercise mentioned in the book ‘Know Your Mind: Everyday Emotional and Psychological Problems and How to Overcome Them‘:

To work properly, exposure needs to be done regularly, for at least 45 minutes 3-5 times a week, and systematically. Begin by drawing up a list of the situations you find frightening, and rank them in order of how stressful they are. So if, for example, you have a fear of spiders, you might run like this:

Least Stressful
————————–Looking at pictures of spiders.
————————–Looking at small spiders in a jar.
————————–Having a small spider on my hand.
————————–Looking a large spider in a jar.
————————–Having a large spider on my hand.
Most Stresful
Table from Know Your Mind: Evereday Emotional and Psychological Problems and How to Overcome Them’

Start with the least frightening task on the list and, when you’re comfortable with it, move on to the next one.

Chapter 20: How to Stay Young in Spirit Forever.

Man is as strong as he thinks he is, and as valuable as he thinks he is.

Diets- and exercises won’t keep you young. As a man thinketh, so is he.

Fear of old age can bring about physical and mental deterioration.

Your retirement is a new venture. Take up new studies and new interests. You can now do the things you always wanted to do when you were so busy making a living. Give your attention to living life.

Mind Power: The Secret of Mental Magic

William Walker Atkinson

THERE EXISTS IN NATURE A DYNAMIC MENTAL PRINCIPLE—A MIND-POWER —PERVADING ALL SPACE—IMMANENT IN ALL THINGS—MANIFESTING IN AN INFINITE VARIETY OF FORMS, DEGREES, AND PHASES.

I hold that this energy, or force, or dynamic principle, is no respecter of persons. Its service, like that of the sun and rain, and all natural forces, is open to all—just and unjust; good and bad; high and low; rich and poor.

It responds to the proper efforts, no matter by whom exerted, or for what purpose called into effect. But the proper effort must be exerted, consciously or unconsciously, else there will be no operation of the force

Mental Fascination

William Walker Atkinson

In this manual I shall use the term “Mental Fascination” is the sense of: The action of a Mental Force that powerfully influences the imagination, desire ,or will of another.

This is my own broad definition which includes all the varied phenomena of Personal Magnetism, Psychological Influence,Hypnotism, Mesmerism, Charming, etc., etc., all of which I hold to be but varying phases of phenomena of one Force.

What is the nature of the Force which produces that which we call Mental Fascination, which latter I have defined as “The action of a Mental Force that powerfully influences the imagination, desire or will of another?” Mental Fascination is the manifestation—what is the nature of the Mental Force that powerfully influences?

As you will see in some of the following chapters, there have been many theories advanced to account for this Force, the theories varying from “magnetic fluids” to mere simple suggestions on the part of the influencing person.”
