The one of the favourite quote from Author-
· Keep your conscious mind busy with expectations of best.
· And You subconscious accepts what your consciously accept.
The Power of Your Subconscious Mind is one of few exceptions, likely because of two factors. First, the author, Joseph Murphy, was a popular minister of the Church of Divine Science and second, because his book took origin in both science and religion. From today’s perspective, the book feels a bit a person readily accepting , but at the time, it struck the exact right nerve.
That’s why this how-to guide for manipulating our own behaviour to get what you want has sold millions of copies and remains popular to this day. Here are some lessons that help you to tap into the unconscious part of your mind:
Repetition Can Train Your Subconscious Mind –
The learning a new skill initially takes conscious efforts. For example, the first time you have to learned to ride a bike, it would be challenging for you. However, repetition meant that riding a bike started to require less conscious effort. Your subconscious mind then began to grasp the task better, and riding a bike became automatic. This repetition can be used to overcome challenges.
Positive Thinking and Visualization Are essential to Achieving Your Dreams –
Positive thinking and visualization can heal anything that you want. You can use your imagination to suggest ideas to your subconscious to get what you want. If repeated often enough, your mind will then steer your behaviour more towards making those ideas a reality. There are many ways you can do this, but most of them can be summarized under the concept of visualization – picturing yourself achieving a certain goal or outcome. In that way you can hold it in your mind until your subconscious makes it a reality.
Your Subconscious Mind and Your Happiness –
William James said that the greatest discovery of 19th century was the power of the subconscious mind touch by faith and it reminders power within you. Happiness will come you when you acquire a supply and confidence in this power then you will make your dream come true.

Your Subconscious Mind as a partner in Success -
“Success means successful living. When you are peaceful, happy, joyous, and doing what you love to do, you are successful."
When it comes to your subconscious mind and achieving success, the thoughts and ideas you imprint on your mind are important . Murphy believes the true inner meaning of success is to be successful at the enterprise of living. He believes that by implementing the three steps, anyone can obtain “success.”
The Three steps To Success -
Step 1 - Find the thing you love to do, then do it.–
“If you love your work, if you enjoy it then you are already in success”. when you love your work you will be exceptionally diligent in what you do and you will excel in delivering both quality and quantity. suppose you are doing a job and that you genuinely love, it won’t feel like work. You will be completely motivated to continue that work. You might be struggling to find a job that you genuinely love. If so, Murphy recommends asking for guidance from career experts. You must also proceed with faith and confidence that you will find the job that you love.
Step 2 – Specialize in some particular branch of work. -
If you manage to find a job that you love, you should look to specialize in particular branch of work and knows more about it than others. Mastering your work will help make you feel more fulfilled, and economic success will follow.
Step 3 – It must benefit humanity.
Joseph Murphy describes this as the most important step to happiness. Your love of work cannot be associated with selfish desires. In other word we can say our idea must go forth with the purpose of blessing serving Humanity.
All in all I really enjoyed learning about the subconscious mind and the different techniques from this book. I believe the main theme of this book is still relevant and applicable today.
