VISUALIZATION OF, AND BELIEF IN ATTAINMENT OF DESIRE
The Second Step toward Riches
FAITH is the head chemist of the mind. When FAITH is blended with
the vibration of thought, the subconscious mind instantly picks
up the vibration, translates it into its spiritual equivalent, and
transmits it to Infinite Intelligence, as in the case of prayer.
The emotions of FAITH, LOVE, and SEX are the most powerful of all
the major positive emotions. When the three are blended, they have
the effect of "coloring" the vibration of thought in such
a way that it instantly reaches the subconscious mind, where it
is changed into its spiritual equivalent, the only form that induces
a response from Infinite Intelligence.
Love and faith are psychic; related to the spiritual side of man.
Sex is purely
biological, and related only to the physical. The mixing, or blending,
of these three emotions has the effect of opening a direct line
of communication between the finite, thinking mind of man, and Infinite
How To Develop Faith
There comes, now, a statement which will give a better understanding
of the importance the principle of auto-suggestion assumes in the
transmutation of desire into its physical, or monetary equivalent;
namely: FAITH is a state of mind which may be induced, or created,
by affirmation or repeated instructions to the subconscious mind,
through the principle of auto-suggestion.
As an illustration, consider the purpose for which you are, presumably,
reading this book. The object is, naturally, to acquire the ability
to transmute the intangible thought impulse of DESIRE into its physical
counterpart, money. By following the instructions laid down in the
chapters on auto-suggestion, and the subconscious mind, as summarized
in the chapter on auto-suggestion, you may CONVINCE the subconscious
mind that you believe you will receive that for which you ask, and
it will act upon that belief, which your subconscious mind passes
back to you in the form of "FAITH," followed by definite
plans for procuring that which you desire.
The method by which one develops FAITH, where it does not already
exist, is extremely difficult to describe, almost as difficult,
in fact, as it would be to describe the color of red to a blind
man who has never seen color, and has nothing with which to compare
what you describe to him. Faith is a state of mind which you may
develop at will, after you have mastered the thirteen principles,
because it is a state of mind which develops voluntarily, through
application and use of these principles.
Repetition of affirmation of orders to your subconscious mind is
the only known method of voluntary development of the emotion of
Perhaps the meaning may be made clearer through the following explanation
as to the way men sometimes become criminals. Stated in the words
of a famous criminologist, "When men first come into contact
with crime, they abhor it. If they remain in contact with crime
for a time, they become accustomed to it, and endure it. If they
remain in contact with it long enough, they finally embrace it,
and become influenced by it."
This is the equivalent of saying that any impulse of thought which
is repeatedly passed on to the subconscious mind is, finally, accepted
and acted upon by the subconscious mind, which proceeds to translate
that impulse into its physical equivalent, by the most practical
In connection with this, consider again the statement, ALL THOUGHTS
WHICH HAVE BEEN EMOTIONALIZED, (given feeling) AND MIXED WITH FAITH,
begin immediately to translate themselves into their physical equivalent
The emotions, or the "feeling" portion of thoughts, are
the factors which give thoughts vitality, life, and action. The
emotions of Faith, Love, and Sex, when mixed with any thought impulse,
give it greater action than any of these emotions can do singly.
Not only thought impulses which have been mixed with FAITH, but
those which have been mixed with any of the positive emotions, or
any of the negative emotions, may reach, and influence the subconscious
From this statement, you will understand that the subconscious mind
will translate into its physical equivalent, a thought impulse of
a negative or destructive nature, just as readily as it will act
upon thought impulses of a positive or constructive nature. This
accounts for the strange phenomenon which so many millions of people
experience, referred to as "misfortune," or "bad
There are millions of people who BELIEVE themselves "doomed"
to poverty and failure, because of some strange force over which
they BELIEVE they have no control. They are the creators of their
own "misfortunes," because of this negative BELIEF, which
is picked up by the subconscious mind, and translated into its physical
This is an appropriate place at which to suggest again that you
may benefit, by passing on to your subconscious mind, any DESIRE
which you wish translated into its physical, or monetary equivalent,
in a state of expectancy or BELIEF that the transmutation will actually
take place. Your BELIEF, or FAITH, is the element which determines
the action of your subconscious mind. There is nothing to hinder
you from "deceiving" your subconscious mind when giving
it instructions through autosuggestion, as I deceived my son's subconscious
To make this "deceit" more realistic, conduct yourself
just as you would, if you were ALREADY IN POSSESSION OF THE MATERIAL
THING WHICH YOU ARE DEMANDING, when you call upon your subconscious
The subconscious mind will transmute into its physical equivalent,
by the most direct and practical media available, any order which
is given to it in a state of BELIEF, or FAITH that the order will
be carried out.
Surely, enough has been stated to give a starting point from which
one may, through experiment and practice, acquire the ability to
mix FAITH with any order given to the subconscious mind. Perfection
will come through practice. It cannot come by merely reading instructions.
If it be true that one may become a criminal by association with
crime, (and this is a known fact), it is equally true that one may
develop faith by voluntarily suggesting to the subconscious mind
that one has faith. The mind comes, finally, to take on the nature
of the influences which dominate it. Understand this truth, and
you will know why it is essential for you to encourage the positive
emotions as dominating forces of your mind, and discourage — and
eliminate negative emotions.
A mind dominated by positive emotions, becomes a favorable abode
for the state of mind known as faith. A mind so dominated may, at
will, give the subconscious mind instructions, which it will accept
and act upon immediately.
