The Eleventh Step Toward Riches

What is The Subconcious Mind?

Napoleon Hill Discribes it as “a field of consciousness, in which every impulse of thought that reaches the objective mind through any of the five senses, is classified and recorded, and from which thoughts may be recalled or withdrawn as letters may be taken from a filing cabinet.

It receives, and files, sense impressions or thoughts, regardless of their nature. You may VOLUNTARILY plant in your subconscious mind any plan, thought, or purpose which you desire to translate into its physical or monetary equivalent. The subconscious acts first on the dominating desires which have been mixed with emotional feeling, such as faith.”

This discription makes me thnk of the subconcsious mind being like a massive, endless boundless living canvas on which we painting spiritual (living) pictures, and spiritual (living) words. We paint and write with the paintbrush of faith, whose handle is passion and whose bristles are desire. These pictures are created, which express to Infinite Knowledge what our desire is and to have our dreams empowered.

The subconscious acts like a storage of files of feelings, Good or bad, (it makes no distiction or judgement between the two.) ideas, truths or lies (we tell others or tell ourselves.) Imagination and reality. Where we store memories good and bad and so much more.  I said beforethat words are living spirit, they have a life and they have power/ in the beginng God created everything with his words "LET THERE BE..."   Why is this important?  I will give you very important reasons

1. "Pro 18:21  Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof. 

Hill tells us 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."  By providing the subconsious a vivd, clear emotion generating word picture, we hand over that thing which  we desire. Our selftalk must match what we desire.  People sometime say aor think things opposite of what they hope for and they waver this vibration disrupts the picture they send.  We cannot be double minded about what we have asked for or we may not get what we want, but something that can harm us.  with exercise as Hill intimates will strengthen our resolve and our faith.  Self Talk is so important.  it continues to paint that picture, and bring in  vibrant colors (a strenthing of the vision) increasing our faith.  What you say to your self matters.  you need ot know "What To Say When You Talk To Yourself" it is important to know "the Magic Of Thinking Big"  Don't be afraid to think and paint these living pictures large you will get what you picture.  Our pictures we transmute are what we will eat or endure, if negative, we can revese it by overwriting that progam so it is not dominant.

2. Proverbs 4:20  My son, attend to my words; incline thine ear unto my sayings. 
Pro 4:21  Let them not depart from thine eyes; keep them in the midst of thine heart. 
Pro 4:22  For they are life unto those that find them, and health to all their flesh. 
Pro 4:23  Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life. 
Pro 4:24  Put away from thee a froward mouth, and perverse lips put far from thee.

We have to know that words are life.  We are to keep our hearts with all dilligence, what we allow into the heart, keeping the "Gate" of our hearts becoause what we put in our hearts as from out if it "flows the issues of life.

We need to create and store in our memories the great interactions and fellowship of our mastermind group. These exchanges, we need to become the successes we never knew we could be,because we stored a life time of negative images of who we thought we were. Here in the Mateermind we can learn the truth. We were created to create. Because Big Al, Michael Dlouhy kept their hearts and out of it  the Mastermind Group was created and remains. 


We have a duty to ourselves to be careful what pictures we paint in our hearts and what words we write upon it, because this is whare  what we desire get it's start of physical expression or manifestation once it is presented to Infinite Intellegence. What do you want your finiite mind to present to Infinite Intelligence? We must make our desires clear and clean, accurate and well thought out. We store the positive thoughts, ideas and concepts with good feelings, faith, love, sex and desire. This makes them more accessible and are a trigger for our ideas, thoughts and concepts. I think the triggering and re-triggering these thoughts and ideas builds like layers on layers on layers binded together with faith, making dreams or desires stronger and stronger., building for us spiritual muscle. This constant building up to makes it stronger so that outside infuences cannot destroy that which we are, by faith, building.  

We must paint the spiritual pictures and write spiritual words, mixed with faith for with just the thought is insufficient in helping us acquire our dreams. We have the power as to what we allow to pass into our subconscious mind.

Finally Hill says
"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."  

The scripture ssays "Habakuk  2:2  And the LORD answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it. 
Hab 2:3  For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry."

We must not only write the vision on paper, but I personally believ that we ned to write the vison on the table of the hearts of others so they can see the vision and run with it.  I watch TV, (yes I do); however, I watch shows where they are building/creating cars and motercycles and things like that. They ask the customers what they want and the builder is open to the vision,  it is instantly witten in his/her heart and they go to her/his team and tells them what is in his heart and he successfully writes it upon the table of hsi teams heart.  they create the desired thing and the customer is blown away.  Many times the customer asks "How did you take this out of my heart and build it even better than I saw it?". So this is why we not only write it on paper but we need to pass along a vivid pictiure of the vision and write it upon the tables of the hearts of others.  This is what the Mastermind Group accomplishes for us, a sharing  of living,vibrant vision so we "learn how to think and not what to think."  Thanks Al, Mike an Ken for the vision we need to change not only our lives, but also the lives of others locally and globally.
