Chapter 11- The Mystery of Sex Transmutation

“The emotion of sex is an “irresistible force,” against which there
can be no such opposition as an “immovable body.” When driven by this
emotion, men become gifted with a superpower for action. Understand
this truth, and you will catch the significance of the statement that
sex transmutation will lift one to the status of a genius.” Napoleon Hill

What is meant by an irresistible force?  This a term applied to such an
interposition, intervening, or conflicting thoughts and actions taken by
people that express their individual power, as is, from its nature and
power, absolutely uncontrollable. Such is the emotion of sex it is energy
if uncontrolled or transmuted can be misused, misplaced, and wasted.

Hill says, “When driven by this desire, men develop keenness of imagination,
courage, willpower, persistence, and creative ability unknown to them at other
times.”

Transmutation calls for the exercise of willpower, to be sure, but the reward
is worth the effort. Just as we exercise to strengthen and develop a healthier
body, to develop a healthy ability to control one's actions, emotions, or urges
(willpower) it calls for an exercising, focusing, and sometimes a redirection
of all the emotions which are part of our lives.

“Everything is in flux: everything changes; the body changes, the soul changes.
We are capable of extraordinary self-transmutation and internal self-transformation.” Clive Barker

I have seen a transmutation of all the emotions in my life over the past 5 years.
If you did not know it there was a time when I had to be the one right about
everything and everybody, always. Having to be the one right tends to make life
unpleasant for myself and everyone around me. Over the past 5 years I have pushed
the negative emotions such as fear, anger, and jealousy out, and with time and
persistence fanned the flame of the positive emotion of desire, faith, love, sex,
enthusiasm, romance, hope, and prosperity.

This process has taught me the meaning behind sex transmutation, taking the energy
from all these emotions for the transformation toward a life of abundance, hope,
and real joy.

Thanks to Linda and Michael Dlouhy for your commitment to being a living example
of all principles as taught in Think and Grow Rich, I am grateful to everyone in
​the Mentoring for Free family for the commitment bring to the weekend calls.
