If you want to make use of chemical or physical forces, you must learn the principles of these fields.  If you want to make use of the force of your subconscious mind,you must learn its principles. JM

This book is a classic book that has become a seminal text on how the subconscious mind works.  It has formed the basis for a lot of the writings about the use of the mind to create what we want in life.  Murphy states that our subconscious mind works to correspond to the nature of our thoughts. What you think about, you bring about.  This works for both positive as well as negative thinking patterns.

The book, while using the language of Christian religion, provides numerous powerful examples on the power of our thoughts and beliefs in influencing our reality.  When we change our thinking and prime our subconscious mind we change our results.

The book contains a large number of case studies and strategies on how to use our subconscious mind to:

  • Increase health and rid the body of many common ailments
  • Get a promotion, a raise, or recognition in the workplace
  • Build the confidence to achieve what you want to achieve
  • Develop relationships and enhance existing relationships with co-workers, family, and friends
  • Overcome phobias, compulsions and bad habits
  • Learn the secret of “eternal youth” and much, much more!”

Murphy says, “Whatever you habitually think sinks down into your subconscious mind, which then creates according to the nature of your thoughts.” He goes on the state that “…the power we all have in our subconscious mind is awesome!”.

Murphy gives the account of a Scottish surgeon who practiced medicine in the 1840’s, before the time of chemical anaesthesia.  He conducted all his operations with only mental anaesthesia because of the power of the subconscious mind.

Murphy says, “You were not born with these negative attitudes.” And using the subconscious mind, we can overcome all the negative beliefs we may have.

This book covers a wide variety of subjects, from healing, to academia, to riches. And while the subconscious mind can be used to gain wealth, Murphy reminds us, “No one on his deathbed wishes he had spent more time making money!

At the end of each chapter there are key insights and a summary to review, which is a useful way to reinforce the messages contained in each chapter.

When you know how to apply the laws of the subconscious mind and

when you are expressing yourself fully and giving of your talents to others,

you are on the sure path to true success.  JM
