    If Stephen Covey's 'The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People' concentrates on the principles to be followed to become effective achiever, Dr.Murphy's 'The Power of Your Subconscious Mind" concentrates on the role of YOU and your mind to achieve every dream of yours.

    We hear about (conscious) mind and the subconscious mind. Does it mean we have two minds ? Not really. We have only one mind that possesses two distinct and characteristic functional parts. The two functions of the mind are essentially different from each other. The many names that are used to distinguish the two are objective and subjective mind, the conscious and the subconscious mind, the waking and the sleeping mind, the surface and the deep self, and such.

    So, what is it that makes the subconscious mind special ? It works every single minute - even when you are sleeping! Thus, whatever the conscious mind thinks and does while one is awake is picked up by the subconscious mind while the person is sleeping and even while off to do something else. While the conscious mind can use logical reasoning and analytical skills to understand or accept any thing, the subconscious mind cannot do any such. It simply takes off whatever the conscious mind is thinking and does the same thing continuously. That is why it is of utmost importance what we feed the subconscious. If it is good thought, positive aspects, the subconscious mind then takes off to help achieve that objective. But, if we feed it negative thoughts - be it as simple as - "Oh! I cannot afford this luxurious dress!", the subconscious mind makes sure it brings obstacles so that you indeed cannot afford that luxurious dress! It might sound illogical to you as you read this! But surely, that is how the subconscious mind works!

    Read the book to know more on how you can use your subconscious mind to achieve riches, prosperity, youthfulness, work real miracles in others lives, find peace of mind, resolve marital issues and every single wish and dream of yours!

    I have read this book"The Power of Your Subconscious Mind".Actually this was the first book i had ever read completely in my life...really

    I was impressed by the book and have even tried to implement them...i.e the book says whatever u want to achieve,think abt it deeply and feel that it wil definetely happen and have a positive approach to that.I did try to do similar ways and have acheived few things in my life..

    Thanks to the Author !!!!

    Re: The Power of Your Sub-Conscious Mind

    This book was given to me by my friend's mum in her last days- She was battling leukemia and someone had given it to her- but I guess she was too resigned to her fate that she did not really believe in the techniques mentioned in the book. The book suggests that we can make anything happen with the powers of the sub-conscious, by positive thinking, by being optimistic, by envisioning the dreams that we have in such a realistic manner that the sub conscious will make it happen. But one must believe in what one is doing, not force the sub conscious coz forcing will not work.

    She knows that I was (and still am)very unhappy about certain issues in my life esp marriage- but even though I read the book twice or thrice(the book calls for reading many many times) I just could not get myself to 'day dream' the positive or envision the bright future- which is why my life remains unchanged and depressing, I guess. :-((((

    Good review, eveninghour. Do u have any personal experience regarding the techniques mentioned in the book? If I knew u had started this topic before, I wouldn't have started it again. So sorry- I hope the moderators merge the threads.

    swaran, have u really achieved what u wanted? Kudos to u!
    My pessimissm gets the better of me most times- I'm not able to feed the sub-conscious with optimistic thoughts...............too depressed for words. :-(((((

    Dear shruti...yes i have acheived few things and i am trying few more....basically 2 things you need to remember while doing this(my personal experience)
    (1)Continuously you need to think that it(that something that you want to acheive) will happen for sure...it should be like,even if someone wakes you up from deep sleep and ask about this,you need to say that "yes it will happen"...there should be no if/but thinking running in your mind...basically think when you are free
    (2)when you think about that something,your mind should be devoid of any other thoughts...keep your mind free and then think only about that...think only positives.

    Initially it was difficult for me too to get rid of all negative thinking but i kept practising and it worked...
    You too can do it...
    All the best!!!!

    Also, we can just think/focus of one thing at a time, right? Is it possible to think of multiple things in different areas- For eg: a gold necklace(material thing), a happier life with spouse(emotional) and a slimmer shape(physical)???????

    Really a though provoking post. I have recently read about miracles of subconscious mind. I am also trying to keep myself positive to achieve my dreams to come true. It is true that your subconscious mid is like your genie and accept any orders given by you.
    As said by swaran, the only main important point is to keep your views and thoughts positive and dont let negative thoughts creep in your mind. If in case any negative thought do come, gently wipe it off and create a positive thought and soon your wish will come true. I have seen many videos in youtube and learnt about the way subconscious mind works.
    Let me give you one of the simple and yet powerful example of subconscious mind: If you want to get up early in the morning say 5' clock, just say that you want to get up early tomorrow at 5'0 clock and then sleep. And you will notice that you will surely get up at the exact time. Thus, you can make out that subconscious mind really works.
