Book Notes: The Power of your subconscious mind
The Power of your subconscious mind by Joseph Murphy originally published in 1963 revolved around the idea that your subconscious mind built your body and also has the power to heal and recreate it according to the mental pattern provided by you.
Over ninety percent of your mental life is subconscious.
The book contains stories of how people transformed their lives through the mastery of the subconscious mind.
Interesting points noted:
Subconscious mind made my body, it could also recreate it and heal it according to the perfect pattern within it.
Speak to your subconscious mind with authority and conviction, and it will confirm to your command.
You can remake yourself by giving a new blueprint to your subconscious mind.
Charge your subconscious with the task of evolving an answer to any problem, prior to sleep and it will answer you.
Sleep in peace and wake in joy.
The real things of life, such as peace, harmony, integrity, security, and happiness are intangible.
Success is in loving your work.
There is no success without peace of mind.
You are spiritually recharged during sleep, and adequate sleep is essential to produce joy and vitality in life.
A man’s life is what his thoughts make of it.
A man is what he thinks all day long.
The happiest man is he who constantly brings forth and practices what is best in him.
Age is not the flight of years, but the dawn of wisdom.
We do not count a man’s year until he has nothing else to count.
Man is as strong as he thinks he is, and as valuable as he thinks he is.
Try to learn something new every moment of the day, and you will find your mind will always be young.
You grow old when you lose interest in life, when you cease to dream, to hunger after new truths, and to search for new worlds to conquer.
Retirement can be a new venture, a new challenge, a new path, the beginning of the fulfillment of a long dream.
You are as old as you think and feel.
Even though some parts of the book might feel repetitive as the whole book revolves around one single idea that you could change your life just by mastering your subconscious mind.
Reading this book just changes your perspective towards everything. And sets you up to take control of your subconscious mind leading to a happy life enlightened with mental and physical health.
