Beyond the Power of Your Subconscious Mind
Many of you have heard of, observed, or even participated in “fire walks”
where, through the repetition of strong suggestions to the participants, the
skin on their feet will be “protected” as they walk over red-hot coals. I have
seen this ritual performed many times including native Fijians standing on
molten white-hot rocks for several seconds with no feeling of the heat or any
burning sensation.

will actually experience a burn on their feet. But, in every such instance they
confessed they had “great doubt” that they would be safe from being burned.

our goals and the things we truly want in our lives. Imagine being able to
turn off the switch of that little voice that likes to constantly remind us of
our doubts and fears. Imagine that same power used to proactively manage
our health and physical well-being. That’s where we are headed as we move
forward with this work.

them to pass as conditions, experiences, and events. All things that have
happened to you are based on thoughts impressed on your subconscious
mind through belief. If you have conveyed erroneous concepts to your
subconscious mind, the sure method of overcoming them is by the rep-

your subconscious mind accepts, thus forming new and healthy habits of
thought and life, for your subconscious mind is the seat of habit.
