Faith or belief is something many feel they either have or do not have. Often our faith, or lack of, is put down to upbringing or background, "No one in my family ever went to University, so obviously, I won't go to to University" or similar self limiting comments are good examples of a persons belief being borne out of past influences.However Hill tells us "FAITH is a state of mind which may be induced, or created" Good news for all who believed only 'that what we were is what we are'. Not only can the hand we were dealt with be changed - we now learn how to change it.
Hill continues by saying "Faith is a state of mind which you may develop at will, after you have mastered the thirteen principles contained in this boo, because it is a state of mind which develops voluntarily, through application and use of these principles", "repetition of affirmation of orders to your subconscious mind is the only known method of voluntary development of the emotion of faith". In other words, by reading and applying each of these principles we will better understand how to directly influence the sub-conscious mind to create the healthier and positive outcomes we want.
Hill further explains that constant repetition is the only method by which the sub-conscious mind can be voluntarily convinced to not just accept our desires as reality but to also provide the tools to deliver and sustain that reality. In Mentoring for Free we know this better as the self talk where Michael and all the other senior constantly encourage us to write out our desired reality, read aloud with visualizations often as possible every day to implant those instructions into the sub-conscious.
For many of us, this 'learning by repetition' is something we are already very familiar with, after all that was how we learnt those confounded multiplication tables, so we already know the tune, now all we have to do is change the words.
My thanks to the entire Mentoring for Free team for their unselfish sharing of their brilliance and to Michael and Linda for their patience.
