The Treasure House Within You
The greatest treasure we could possibly uncover does not glitter like gold, neither does it require searching the depths of the sea or travelling to distant lands to find it. It resides within you. This treasure is the power of your subconscious mind.
Murphy felt that great men of all ages possessed a secret. This secret was their ability to contact and release the potentials of their subconscious mind and this book can teach you that secret.
Each of your thoughts are a cause and every condition in your life is an effect of those thoughts. We’ve all heard the saying, “Whatever thou thinketh, so art thou.” Murphy wholeheartedly agrees with this. If you can conceive it you can achieve it.
Your subconscious mind is also neutral. It accepts without conflict what your conscious mind decrees. Whether you say, “I can’t afford it” or “Money comes easy to me,” it will create experiences to match your dominant thoughts.
The Potential of Your Subconscious
Like an impressionable child, the subconscious responds to habit and habitual thinking — positive or negative. If we are careless with our thoughts, randomly letting negative thoughts impress upon our minds without any awareness on our part, we shouldn’t be surprised when they are expressed in day-to-day experiences and relationships.
Murphy felt that while bad things can happen to us — independent of our role in them — this is more the exception than the rule. Instead, the bad is already in us just waiting to germinate. Consistent negative thoughts provide all those seeds need to grow into the noxious weeds of bad experience.
While this is a harsh reality, this knowledge also grants our liberation. Understanding this means that we can actively choose what we feed our subconscious mind, blessing us with the opportunity for complete rebirth if we so desire.
Surrendering for Better Results
The subconscious mind does not respond well to coercion. Murphy discovered that it’s best to approach the subconscious with relaxed faith — allowing it to do its transformational work with ease. Unlike the consious mind which may be pushed into completing a task, the subconscious — when pushed — will short-circuit the entire process you are trying to fulfill. This attempt at success through willpower is counterproductive with your subconscious mind. It sees this as nothing more than an opposition to what you want done and responds in like manner.
Having relaxed faith allows the subconscious to work its magic, and the ease at which it accomplishes this magic is increased when you add emotion to the mix. For some reason unknown to Murphy, the subconscious responds better when thoughts are “emotionalized.” When thoughts become feelings and imaginations become desires, the subconscious will deliver what you want with speed and abundance.
