“I never approach the discussion of the subconscious
mind without a feeling of littleness and inferiority
due, perhaps, to the fact that man’s entire stock of
knowledge on this subject is so pitifully limited. The
very fact that the subconscious mind is the medium of
communication between the thinking mind of man and
Infinite Intelligence is, of itself, a thought which
almost paralyzes one’s reason.
“After you have accepted, as a reality, the existence
of the subconscious mind, and understand its
possibilities, as a medium for transmuting your DESIRES
into their physical or monetary equivalent, you will
comprehend the full significance of the instructions
given in the chapter on DESIRE. You will also
understand why you have been repeatedly admonished to
MAKE YOUR DESIRES CLEAR, AND TO REDUCE THEM TO WRITING.
“You will also understand the necessity of PERSISTENCE
in carrying out instructions.
“The thirteen principles are the stimuli with which you
acquire the ability to reach, and to influence your
subconscious mind. Do not become discouraged, if you
cannot do this upon the first attempt. Remember that
the subconscious mind may be voluntarily directed only
through habit, under the directions given in the
chapter on FAITH. You have not yet had time to master
faith. Be patient. Be persistent.” ~Napoleon Hill
“You cannot entirely control your subconscious mind,
but you can voluntarily hand over to it any plan,
desire, or purpose which you wish transformed into
concrete form. Read, again, instructions for using the
subconscious mind, in the chapter on autosuggestion.” ~
As powerful as it is, the subconscious is gullible. It
is also brutally honest. It tells the world, through
non-verbal means, who we believe we are.
It speaks body language - the involuntary movement of
muscles controlling the face, eyes, limbs and posture.
One does not need to study this language to read it. We
are all fluent - at the unconscious level.
Note that many politicians have admitted they were
coached and earnestly practiced voluntary control over
their body language to cover their lying to people (or
their personal lack of confidence in what they were
The subconscious also triggers the sweat glands, and
the evaporating sweat carries pheremone molecules into
the air - produced by involuntary gland secretions
triggered by emotional states.
Humans are not generally thought to have highly
developed senses of smell, such as those of dogs; but
olfactory stimuli (at the unconscious level) more
readily trigger feelings of nostalgia than images or
Examples: The aroma of a meal a parent frequently
prepared when you were a child, a fragrance worn by
someone you romanced, the exhaust from a vintage
automobile manufactured before the existence of
The subconscious also produces the Emotional Energy
discussed in Chapter 11 - the warm radiation of
Positive Emotions and the cool draw of Negative
Emotions. Humans and all other creatures feel this
energy flow at the unconscious level.
Here’s something interesting: I often hear folks
complain that everyone around them is negative (the
people in their orbit).
Look up at the night sky. See the bright objects other
than stars - the Moon when it’s high overhead; the
planets Venus, Mercury and Jupiter - all shine with a
brilliant white light. Mars shines bright with a
reddish tinge and the Earth (as seen from space) is a
brilliant blue jewel with swirling white clouds.
The satellites orbiting the Sun reflect back what the
Sun gives them.
So, what are we giving to those who orbit us?
Now, most people don’t see themselves as an Emotional
Energy Source; they see themselves as a satellite -
depending on another as a source for their emotional
I don’t believe there is anything wrong with that,
depending on who your source is.
The risk of emotional dependency on another living
person is their mortality (unless you’ve achieved a
strong spiritual connection).
Many base their hopes and dreams on a leader - such as
the President of the United States. Not only are they
mortal, but their maximum time is four years - unless
re-elected for another four years. Either way, the most
you have of them is eight years.
There is no guarantee of consistency between one such
leader and the next. The motto of the 45th President
was, “Make America Great Again, ” whereas the motto of
the 46th seems to be, “Make America Hate Again.”
Hill suggests we should strive to establish a strong
connection with Infinite Intelligence - the Source who
fueled all the trillions of trillions of stars in the
trillions of galaxies throughout the Universe.
Now, some folks find it hard to believe in things
spiritual. Interestingly, some of them find it easier
to believe that extraterrestrials visited our ancient
ancestors and inspired their cultures and religious
