Napoleon Hill says: “You have but three principles to bear in mind and to apply when you wish to use your broadcasting station – the subconscious mind, creative imagination, and autosuggestion. The stimuli through which you put these three principles into action have been described – and the procedure begins with desire.”


I’m sure you’ve heard the expression “passing each other like ships in the night” to denote the existence of a lack of communication. Indeed, we can imagine the world and the people in it as a sea of floating ships travelling in different directions. We can imagine this sea fluctuating from calm to stormy. Each ship has a radio transmitter or a broadcasting station that sends out signals to other ships,  attracting or repelling them. But behind the transmitter is a brain with its billions of nerve cells guiding and directing the messages sent.


Signals generated by emotions that are positive or negative can be strong and clear. The strong positive life-sustaining ones attract positive responses and the strong, negative, life-denying, angry ones attract the like in return. As for the weak negative fearful ones, they are usually ignored and shunned as being irrelevant, by passing ships. The negatives repel and attract a host of negatives that weaken the character of the sender, sending it in a downward spiral to eventually crash into some reef or other.


If our radio signals are weak and fearful and even if, on the other hand, they are strong, angry and resentful, we can voluntarily call for help by sending out a mayday signal to Infinite Intelligence. We do this by using our brains to realize that things are not working, and seeing ourselves the way others see us. This process forces us to take responsibility for our actions or lack of them. By discovering our purpose and building strong, definite, positive desires we communicate them through our subconscious minds, our radio transmitters or broadcasting stations. This we do through a powerful autosuggestion or self-talk that is in harmony with our purposes and desires.


A ‘mayday call’ to Infinite Intelligence through the medium of the subconscious mind, when our purposes and desires are true and in alignment with our essential natures, will not go unanswered. Our brains’ creative imaginations will receive prompts and inspirations from Infinite Intelligence, and we will receive help from other people and the universe. People will no longer pass us by like ships in the night.


When our minds are right, our worlds will be right.
