Think and Grow Rich – Chapter 13 “The Brain”

The brain is both a broadcasting and receiving station for the vibration of thought. Chapter 13 explains that through the ether, similarly to a radio, the brain is capable of picking up vibrations of thought which are being released by other brains. The creative imagination is the receiving set of the brain.

The subconscious mind is the broadcasting station of the brain. What you attract is a result of what you vibrate. Your brain, and how you use it, determines the vibrational thought energy that you are transmitting. What you mentally broadcast drives what you receive. You have to be in vibrational harmony with the frequency of thought you want to attract.

Man understands little or nothing of the intangible force of thought. But this is not a reason to underestimate it. A very interesting way to develop the brain is brainstorming. It involves concentration, definiteness of purpose and sitting around a table thinking out loud.

We all know that being motivated and in the right mood makes us more sensitive to the environment, increases our mental faculties and improves our social skills when we interact with others. We can think about a thought as a thing. Using our conscious mind, we can choose the thoughts that we think. With the help of the process of auto-suggestion, the more we think certain thoughts, the more we receive similar thoughts. But as we repeat this process, our regularly occurring conscious thoughts become ingrained in our subconscious.

The subconscious mind is the real driver of our behaviors, actions, and habits. When you are starting a new habit, in the beginning, it’s all about the conscious decision to perform those tasks. For example, getting up and out of bed at 5 am can be discouraging at first, and you really have to decide (consciously) that you are going to do.  Once you spend 21 days doing it, it becomes a habit. It becomes the new norm and it’s just another thing that you do. Belief in yourself is a habit just like all other habits. You can use your brain to rewrite the thoughts, beliefs, and ideologies that it runs by default and you will begin to see the true power of your brain.
