Chapter 4 Auto-Suggestion


The Third Step toward Riches

The term AUTOSUGGESTION often brings reactions from people that clearly demonstrate that it is a misunderstood term. Many people immediately think it is New Age or relates to hypnotists performing on stage. Others believe it is somehow anti-Christian or nonreligious. Let’s set the record straight. According to the Merriam-Webster Collegiate Dictionary, AUTOSUGGESTION is “an influencing of one’s own attitudes, behavior, or physical condition by mental processes other than conscious thought.” This type of self-hypnosis had its first known use in 1890, well before the New Age movement. Hill stated that “AUTO-SUGGESTION is the agency of control through which an individual may voluntarily feed his subconscious mind on thoughts of a creative nature, or, by neglect, permit thoughts of a destructive nature to find their way into this rich garden of the mind.” We each have the ability to consciously change our circumstances by intentionally concentrating on positive actions and thoughts, which in turn influences our subconscious mind to follow suit. This happens by focusing on achieving positive outcomes in our life, both what we WANT to receive and what we are willing to give in exchange for receiving it.

AUTOSUGGESTION is a tool that is constantly available to us. The more we use it, the more powerful we can become in our lives. Experiences and events can easily control our human experience, and often not for the better. When we’re exposed to events laced with fear and other negative emotions, those events get recorded and organized in our minds and become the filtering system for our whole life experience. Without deliberated intervention into this automatic process of living, through autosuggestion or self-suggestion,

we begin to feel that forces outside ourselves are controlling us, and they are.

Any thought or thought form that has any influence whatsoever in your life, for good or bad, was allowed in at some level by you.

Once you become aware of this reality, you can begin to deliberately use the principle of self-suggestion rather than allowing your subconscious to randomly select the stimuli from outside that set you up for failure and disappointments.

How To apply this Auto Suggestion Or As we Call it Here SELF TALK: Well, earlier this week, I woke up depressed and personally felt unloved and Unappreciated. I started to say to my mind I am not depressed. This is a lie. I can get up and do something. Well, I got up and went right to the mirror and followed Michael's instructions, and I said to myself, "I LOVE YOU AND POINTED TO MYSELF AND SAID I LOVE ME I LOVE YOU AND I LOVE ME. I Repeated this over 150 times. I kept saying it until I felt the love within myself. I could've laid in the bed and felt sorry for myself, living in self-pity. But I started to remember everything I said to others and what was said to me about self-talk, and I practiced it. The first time I said it, I didn't feel it, and the more I said it and the more I believed it. I started feeling better. I gave myself hugs and keep repeating the words, I love you, and I believe in you. Until I felt it in my soul, my subconscious mind started believing it, and so did I.

I'm not bi-polar; I have a creative mind that has to be trained, and I appreciate mentoring for free to help me really understand my environment has been a part of my previous failures. My own mind is in my control, I can't control what I see outside my mind, but I can control what stays and influence my mind. I know 98% of negativity comes before me daily and only 20% positive. So I must use self-talk to outweigh the negative that tries to enter my mind.

It would be best if you believed it to achieve it.
