Chapter 12 The Subconscious Mind


The Eleventh Step toward Riches

I am always fascinated by this chapter and the functions for the Subconscious Mind. Its first functions are as a “Filing Cabinet” in which are classified all the thoughts received by the conscious Mind. Secondly it also classifies and stores thoughts, ideas and dreams, received from Infinite Intelligence, which have been recorded for ongoing processing. One thing to remember is that unlike a normal “Filing Cabinet” you cannot withdraw and destroy a record (Idea, Dream, etc.). Recall can be by some form of “trigger”, such as a situation or a question.

An example of this was recently talking with a new acquaintance who asked me about my early years in England and was amazed at my ability to recall my Primary School Days, which occurred during World War II, and the recollection of classes conducted in underground shelters constructed in the School Grounds. Also seeing the first Flying Bomb (Nike name a Doddle Bug), being chased by and fired upon by a Spitfire Class of Aeroplane.

The Subconscious Mind also functions as the Receiving Station for Ideas, Dreams and Hunches received from Infinite Intelligence, which can be both positive and negative, it does not differentiate. It has an additional function which it to transmit requests from the Conscious Mind to Infinite Intelligence. Prayer is a good example of this. We ask the Universe, God in my case, for something specific and if it is granted the answer is received back via the receiving part of the Subconscious Mind for onward transmission to the Conscious Mind.

The communication between the Subconscious Mind and Infinite Intelligence being similar to Radio Transmissions where a process of stepping up of vibrations, to very high frequencies inaudible to the Human ear, occurs for transmission, the reverse occur with the received reply.

The communication between the Conscious and Subconscious Mind also involves vibrational changes, stepping up of vibrations, through emotions, for request to be transmitted from the conscious Mind to the subconscious Mind. This change in vibrational energy acts as a ‘gate’ between one and the other for positive thoughts. Negative thoughts pass unheeded between through the gate.

How do we ensure that Positive thoughts pass through the gate, by increased vibration caused by emotionally charged “Self Talk”. Self Talk is the major contributing factor in ensuring that our Passionate Desires reach Infinite Intelligence and we receive back ideas and organised plans which will lead to or ultimate goals. Our Self Talk is the means by which we control what enters the Subconscious Mind, since Positive and Negative thoughts cannot coexist.

Bear in mind though that negative thoughts as we learnt in a previous chapter are 10 times more powerful than positive thoughts. This is why it takes time to control our mind through a strong ‘self talk’ said many times per day, initial 1000 to 1500 times/day.

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you Linda and Michael Dlouhy for Mentoring For Free and its continued enhancement to give a system of Personal Development which interactive and always positive in what is learned. Gratitude, to all the members of this Master Mind Group, for their contributions each week, through their posted Lessons, to knowledge gained by the Group as a whole.
