Excerpt from the book ‘The Power of Your Sub Conscious Mind By Joseph Murphy.
How Your Own Mind Work
YOU HAVE a mind, and you should learn how to use it. There are two levels of your mind- the conscious or rational level, and the subconscious or irrational level. You think with your conscious mind, and whatever you habitually think sinks down into your subconscious mind which creates according to the nature of your thoughts. Your subconscious mind is the seat of your emotions and is the creative mind. If you think good, good will follow if you think evil, evil will follow. This is the way your mind works.

THE TREMENDOUS POWER OF SUGGESTION
You must realize by now that your conscious mind is the “watchman at the gate and its chief function is to protect your subconscious mind from false impressions. You are now aware of one of the basic laws of mind: Your subconscious mind is amenable to suggestion. As you know, your subconscious mind does not make comparisons, or contrasts, neither does it reason and think things out for itself. This latter function belongs to your conscious mind. It simply reacts to the impressions given to it by your conscious mind. It does not show a preference for one course of action over another.

How pale you are! I feel certain you are going to be seasick. Let me help you to your cabin.” The passenger turns pale.

In all ages the power of suggestion has played a part in the life and thought of man in every period of time and in each country of the earth. In many parts of the world it is the controlling power in religion. Suggestion may be used to discipline and control ourselves, but it can also be used to take control and command over others who do not know the laws of mind. In its constructive form it is wonderful and magnificent. In its negative aspects it is one of the most destructive of all the response patterns of the mind, resulting in patterns of misery, failure, suffering, sickness, and disaster.
