Auto-suggestion is the third step towards riches. Auto-suggestion is self-suggestion.It is the agency of communication between the part of the mind where conscious thought take place, and that which serves as the seat of action for the subconscious mind.
Through the dominating thoughts which one permits to remain in the conscious mind (whether this thoughts be negative or positive, is immaterial), the principle of auto-suggestion volutarily reaches the subconscious mind and influences it with these thoughts.
No thought, whether it be negative or positive, can enter the subconscious mind without the aid of auto-suggestion with the exception of the thought picked up from ether. Stated differently, all sense impressions which are perceived through the five senses, are stopped by the conscious thinking mind and may either be passed unto the subconscious mind or rejected at will. The conscious faculty serves as an outer guard 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. However, in the great majority of instances, man does not exercise this control, which explains why so many people go through life in poverty.
Auto-suggestion is the agency of control through which an indivicual may voluntarily feed his subconscious mind on thoughts of creative nature, or by neglect, permits thoughts of a destructive nature to find their way into this rich garden of the mind.
In the previous review when we discussed “Desire the starting point of all achievement, we were instructed on the six steps required to transmte desire into its financial equivalent and to read aloud twice daily the written statement of your desire for money and to see and feel 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 favourable to your efforts to transmute desire into its monetary equivalent.
Go back to the six step in the review Desire and read them again.
Remember, therefore that when reading aloud the statement of your desire that the mere reading of the word is of no consequence- unless you mix emotion or feeling with your words. Plain, unemotional words do not influence the subconscious mind, your subconscious mind only recoganizes and acts upon only thoughts which have been well mixed with emotion or feeling.This is an important fact to note. The lack of understanding of this is the main reason the majority of people who try to apply the principle of auto-suggestion get no desireable result.
You will get no appreciable results until you learn to reach your subconscious mind with thoughts or spoken words which has been well emotionalized with belief.
Lets not get it wrong, it is not ease to control and direct your emotions. The ability to reach and influence your subconscious mind has its price and that price is everlasting persistence in applying the principles described above.
Wisdom and “cleverness” alone will not attract and retain money except in a very few rare instances, where the law of averages favours the attraction of money through these sources.The method of attracting money described here does not depend upon the law of averages. Moreover, the method plays no favorites. It will work for one person as effectively as it will work for another. Where failure is experienced, it is the individual and not the method, which has failed. If you try and fail, make another effort, and still another, until you succeed.
Your ability to use the principle of auto-suggestion will depend, very largely, upon your capacity to concentrate upon a given desire until that desire becomes a burning obsession.
The actual performance of transmuting desire into money involves the use of auto-suggestions as an agency by which one may reach and influence the subconscious mind.
Here is a most significant fact- The subconscious mind takes any orders given it in a spirit of absolute faith, and acts upon those orders, although the orders often have to be presented over and over again, through repetition, before they are interpreted by the subconscious mind.
Many philosophers have made the statement that man is the master of his own earthly destiny. This is so because man has the power to influence his own subconscious mind and through it, gain the cooperation of Infinite Intelligence.
