“Repetition of affirmation of orders to your subconscious mind is the only known method of voluntary development of the emotion of faith.”
I do struggle with my own faith and self confidence and this statement spoke out to me in a way that really makes me think and re-evaluate my own life and how I personally see how things are going in my life. This chapter was a “kick in the butt” for me and something I so needed.
The definition of repetition is; the act of repeating, or doing, saying, or writing something again; repeated action, performance, production, or presentation (From dictionary. Com).
Making a routine of repeating your ideas, dreams, goals or anything else that is important to us will help us to become better people and help us attain our goals and dreams.
“Not only thought impulses which have been mixed with FAITH, but those which have been mixed with any of the positive emotions, or any of the negative emotions, may reach, and influence the subconscious mind.
From this statement, you will understand that the subconscious mind will translate into its physical equivalent, a thought impulse of a negative or destructive nature, just as readily as it will act upon thought impulses of a positive or constructive nature. This accounts for the strange phenomenon which so many millions of people experience, referred to as “misfortune,” or “bad luck.” There are millions of people who BELIEVE themselves “doomed” to poverty and failure, because of some strange force over which they BELIEVE they have no control. They are the creators of their own “misfortunes,” because of this negative BELIEF, which is picked up by the subconscious mind, and translated into its physical equivalent.”
This statement hear spoke to me strongly. If you think negatively then you will have a negative outcome. If your thoughts are positive, than you will have a positive outcome. This will be something I will read every day as a reminder because sometimes the negative can be most overwhelming.
