CHAPTER 12-THE SUBCONSCIOUS MIND THE CONNECTING LINK
“I never approach the discussion of the subconscious mind
without a feeling of littleness and inferiority due, perhaps,
to the fact that man’s entire stock of knowledge on this
subject is so pitifully limited. The very fact that the
subconscious mind is the medium of communication between the
thinking mind of man and Infinite Intelligence is, of itself,
a thought which almostparalyzes one’s reason.” Napoleon Hill
I understand how Mr. Hill feel for I felt the same way. In attempting
to grasp this subject of the subconscious mind I too feel small. This
part of me at the heart of who I am. This place which receives, files
and senses thoughts or impressions regardless of their nature negative
or positive emotions. Hill states, “You may VOLUNTARILY plant in your
subconscious mind any plan, thought, or purpose which you desire to
translate into its physical or monetary equivalent. The subconscious
acts first on the dominating desires which have been mixed with emotional
feeling, such as faith.”
I felt lead to focus on the importance of what I am VOLUNTARILY planting
in my subconscious. I want to better understand this medium of communication
between my mind and Infinite Intelligence (which is God to me). Before me
are two basic choices to live in the positive emotions given by God or fall
into the deep ruts of the negative emotions.
Hill warns that if I fail to fill my mind with the emotions of desire, faith,
love. sex, enthusiasm, romance, hope and prosperity the door is wide opened
for fear, jealousy, hatred, revenge, greed, superstition and anger take over.
There is no room in the subconscious mind for negative emotions and positive
emotions at the same. Furthermore, where the negative emotions thrive they can
only be driven out when positive emotions are multiplied by 10-fold.
Like two beakers of liquates, one a harmful and foul solution, the other the
purest water available. Both move toward a funnel with a valve for directing
the flow to one container. The valve is control by the strength of the flowing
of fluids and the best way to prevent the harmful solution getting to the
container is turn up the flow of the pure water with more pressure. This is what
I must do by increase my self-talk by 10X to push any negative emotions out
of my subconscious mind.
