Chapter 12 – The Subconscious Mind: The Connecting Link (The Eleventh Step Toward Riches)

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.

The subconscious mind will not remain idle! If you fail to plant DESIRES in your subconscious mind, it will feed upon the thoughts which reach it as the result of your neglect.

Everything which man creates, BEGINS in the form of a thought impulse. Man can create nothing which he does not first conceive in THOUGHT.

The “mixing” of faith with a plan, or purpose, intended for submission to the subconscious mind, may be done ONLY through the imagination

Ella Wheeler Wilcox gave evidence of her understanding of the power of the subconscious mind when she wrote:

You never can tell what a thought will do in bringing you hate or love — For thoughts are thing, and their airy wings are swifter than carrier doves. They follow the law of the universe — Each thing creates its kind, And they speed O’er the track to bring you back … Whatever went out from your mind.

The Seven Major Positive Emotions

  • The emotion of DESIRE
  • The emotion of FAITH
  • The emotion of LOVE
  • The emotion of SEX
  • The emotion of ENTHUSIASM
  • The emotion of ROMANCE
  • The emotion of HOPE

The Seven Major Negative Emotions

  • The emotion of FEAR
  • The emotion of JEALOUSY
  • The emotion of HATRED
  • The emotion of REVENGE
  • The emotion of GREED
  • The emotion of SUPERSTITION
  • The emotion of ANGER

Form the habit of using the positive emotions! Eventually, they will dominate your mind so completely, that the negatives cannot enter it.

Faith is the only known agency which will give your thoughts a spiritual nature.

FAITH and FEAR make poor bedfellows. Where one is found, the other cannot exist. is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to
