Beyond The Power of Your Subconscious Mind
9. The law of life is the law of belief. A belief is a thought in your mind.
Do not believe in things to harm or hurt you. Believe in the power of
your subconscious to heal, inspire, strengthen, and prosper you.
10. Change your thoughts, and you change your destiny.
Let me introduce you to “self talk.” Self talk is that little voice in your
head that is talking all the time. If you are asking, “What little voice?” that is
the one we are talking about. As you are reading these words you are simul-
taneously talking to yourself. You may be agreeing or disagreeing with what
you are reading, you may be thinking about an email you need to respond
to, or what you are having for dinner. That little voice asks questions and the
same little voice answers the question. It’s all rather bizarre and at times it
gets quite busy “in there.”
But, it is our conscious mind that is doing all this chattering and it is
important to become aware that such chatter is also providing input and
instruction to the subconscious. As we become more knowing, more con-
sciously aware that our present thoughts determine our future, we may
choose to more carefully monitor the quality of our thoughts and begin to
eliminate or change those thoughts that no longer serve us well. The good
news is that since we can only focus on one thought at a time, we
can
control
our thoughts. As we introduce the concept of affirmations and affirmation
techniques, your understanding and appreciation of the power of self talk
will expand. Chapter 3 will elaborate more fully on the crucially important
subject of “self talk.”
