Your Subconscious Healing Power - p. 6
Unless, as an adult, you use a reconditioning therapy such as constructive autosuggestion, hypnosis, etc, the impressions made on
you in the past can cause behaviour patterns which cause failure in every aspect of your life. Autosuggestion is a simple technique
which enables you to release the mass of negative conditioning that might otherwise compromise your life pattern, and make the development
of good habits difficult.
How Negative Suggestion Killed a Man
The following case was cited by Dr Joseph Murphy:
"A relative of mine
went to a crystal gazer in India who told him that he had a bad heart and predicted that he would die at the next new moon. He began
to tell all members of his family about this prediction, and he arranged his will.
"This powerful suggestion entered into his subconscious
mind because he accepted it completely. My relative also told me that this crystal gazer was believed to have some strange occult
powers, and he could do harm or good to a person. He died as predicted not knowing that he was the cause of his own death. I suppose
many of us have heard similar stupid, ridiculous, superstitious stories.
"Let us look at what happened in the light of our knowledge
of the way the subconscious mind works. Whatever the conscious, reasoning mind of man believes; the subconscious mind will accept
and act upon. My relative was happy, healthy, vigorous, and robust when he went to see the fortuneteller. She gave him a very negative
suggestion, which he accepted. He became terrified, and constantly dwelt upon the fact that he was going to die at the next new moon.
He proceeded to tell everyone about it, and he prepared for the end. The activity took place in his own mind, and his own thought
was the cause. He brought about his own so-called death, or rather destruction of the physical body, by his fear and expectation of
"The woman who predicted his death had no more power than the stones and sticks in the field. Her suggestion had no power
to create or bring about the end she suggested. If he had known the laws of his mind, he would have completely rejected the negative
suggestion and refused to give her words any attention, knowing in his heart that he was governed and controlled by His own thought
and feeling. Like tin arrows aimed at a battleship, her prophecy could have been completely neutralized and dissipated without hurting
him." (Dr Joseph Murphy)
The suggestions of others in themselves have absolutely no power whatever over you except the power that
you give them through your own thoughts. You have to give your mental consent; you have to entertain the thought. Then, it becomes
your thought, and you do the thinking. Remember, you have the capacity to choose. Choose life! Choose love! Choose health!
-- Think good, and good follows. Think evil, and evil follows. You are what you thinků
-- Your subconscious mind does not argue with
you. It accepts what your conscious mind decrees. If you say, "I can't afford it," it may be true, but do not say it. Select a better
thought, decree, "I'll buy it, I accept it in my mind."
-- You have the power to choose. Choose health and happiness. You can choose
to be friendly, or you can choose to be unfriendly. Choose to be co-operative, joyous, friendly, lovable, and the whole world will
respond. This is the best way to develop a wonderful personality.
