The Practical Magnetic
G. M. Brown
Auto-suggestion is the weapon to be used in battling
for health by one’s own efforts without the aid of any outside influence.
The power of auto-suggestion is infallible in its effects where a reasonable
persistency is observed. One can get just what he wants if he will
apply the power within him to bring about the thing desired. The
power is within you to become the possessor of anything which now exists
upon this earth.
There is no question that auto-suggestion directed
for the purpose of restoring one’s health is one of the most potent factors
now known for therapeutic purposes. It appears that without this
factor the whole science would be a myth as far as potency is concerned,
from a therapeutic stand-point.
By applying auto-suggestion to the subjective mind,
ladened with the intention to be impressed thereon, it is first necessary
to assume that it is possible to acquire health, wealth and happiness.
Then try it, and keep on trying and trying until you have secured the treasure
you were in pursuit of.
There are well-defined principles upon which the
power of suggestion is based in its application of self-healing.
Among the first principles are: (Hudson’s L. of P. P.)
1st. The subjective mind exercises complete
control over the functions and sensations of the body.
2nd. “The subjective mind is constantly amenable
to control by the suggestions of the objective mind.”
3rd. “These two propositions being true, the
conclusion is obvious that the functions of the body can be controlled
by suggestions of the objective mind.”
Those three primary propositions are all that can
be applied by the patient in bringing the forces within him to bear upon
the work in hand, and all that he need to know. He must now
assume that those propositions are true and put them to the test.
The result will be that he will know that they are true, (or false).
Belief, then, is unnecessary, as the patient will have acquired knowledge,
and knowledge thus acquired is power - power to do, to act, to bring to
you any and all things that heart could wish for - health, wealth and happiness.
Just assume that the power is within you to do or to draw those blessings
around you and try it.
Now, in reaching this force within, we must assume
that the subjective mind is to be dealt with just the same as if it were
separate from the objective mind. It must be regarded as a servant
and subject to orders from the objective mind. It will be found a
true and faithful servant if it is only trusted, relied upon, and depended
upon to do or to act as directed by the objective mind.
In the way of an illustration, we will assume that the person
has taken a cold. Now, in dealing with a cold we find that the most effective
time for treatment is at night, just before going to bed. Let the patient
concentrate his mind upon the intention of breaking up the cold, so he will
call up the subjective mind and impress upon it the idea that there is an enemy
in camp and must be dislodged. Give the mental command to the subjective
mind to drive the enemy from its position and that you will expect upon awaking
in the morning to see an improved condition and the enemy subdued. Keep
this mode of treatment up for a few nights at most and you will find that you
have entirely overcome the objectionable conditions.
