CHAPTER 1

The Treasure House Within You

Infinite riches are all around you if you will open your mental eyes and behold the treasure house of infinity within you. There is a gold mine within you from which you can extract everything you need to live life gloriously, joyously, and abundantly.

Many are sound asleep because they do not know about this gold mine of infinite intelligence and boundless love within themselves. Whatever you want, you can draw forth. A magnetized piece of steel will lift about twelve times its own weight, and if you demagnetize this same piece of steel, it will not even lift a feather. Similarly, there are two types of men. There is the magnetized man who is full of confidence and faith. He knows that he is born to win and to succeed. Then, there is the type of man who is demagnetized. He is full of fears and doubts. Opportunities come, and he says, "I might fail; I might lose my money; people will laugh at me." This type of man will not get very far in life because, if he is afraid to go forward, he will simply stay where he is. Become a magnetized man and discover the master secret of the ages.


The master secret of the ages

What, in your opinion, is the master secret of the ages? The secret of atomic energy? Thermonuclear energy? The neutron bomb? Interplanetary travel? No—not any of these. Then, what is this master secret? Where can one find it, and how can it be contacted and brought into action? The answer is extraordinarily simple. This secret is the marvelous, miracle-working power found in your own subconscious mind, the last place that most people would seek it.


The marvelous power of your subconscious

You can bring into your life more power, more wealth, more health, more happiness, and more joy by learning to contact and release the hidden power of your subconscious mind.

You need not acquire this power; you already possess it. But, you want to learn how to use it; you want to understand it so that you can apply it in all departments of your life.

As you follow the simple techniques and processes set forth in this book, you can gain the necessary knowledge and understanding. You can be inspired by a new light, and you can generate a new force enabling you to realize your hopes and make all your dreams come true. Decide now to make your life grander, greater, richer, and nobler than ever before.

Within your subconscious depths lie infinite wisdom, infinite power, and infinite supply of all that is necessary, which is waiting for development and expression. Begin now to recognize these potentialities of your deeper mind, and they will take form in the world without.

The infinite intelligence within your subconscious mind can reveal to you everything you need to know at every moment of time and point of space provided you are open-minded and receptive. You can receive new thoughts and ideas enabling you to bring forth new inventions, make new discoveries, or write books and plays. Moreover, the infinite intelligence in your subconscious can impart to you wonderful kinds of knowledge of an original nature. It can reveal to you and open the way for perfect expression and true place in your life.

Through the wisdom of your subconscious mind you can attract the ideal companion, as well as the right business associate or partner. It can find the right buyer for your home, and provide you with all the money you need, and the financial freedom to be, to do, and to go as your heart desires.

It is your right to discover this inner world of thought, feeling, and power, of light, love, and beauty. Though invisible, its forces are mighty. Within your subconscious mind you will find the solution for every problem, and the cause for every effect. Because you can draw out the hidden powers, you come into actual possession of the power and wisdom necessary to move forward in abundance, security, joy, and dominion.

I have seen the power of the subconscious lift people up out of crippled states, making them whole, vital, and strong once more, and free to go out into the world to experience happiness, health, and joyous expression. There is a miraculous healing power in your subconscious that can heal the troubled mind and the broken heart. It can open the prison door of the mind and liberate you. It can free you from all kinds of material and physical bondage.


Necessity of a working basis

Substantial progress in any field of endeavor is impossible in the absence of a working basis which is universal in its application. You can become skilled in the operation of your subconscious mind. You can practice its powers with a certainty of results in exact proportion to your knowledge of its principles and to your application of them for definite specific purposes and goals you wish to achieve.

Being a former chemist, I would like to point out that if you combine hydrogen and oxygen in the proportions of two atoms of the former to one of the latter, water will be the result. You are very familiar with the fact that one atom of oxygen and one atom of carbon will produce carbon monoxide, a poisonous gas. But, if you add another atom of oxygen, you will get carbon dioxide, a harmless gas, and so on throughout the vast realm of chemical compounds.

You must not think that the principles of chemistry, physics, and mathematics differ from the principles of your subconscious mind. Let us consider a generally accepted principle: "Water seeks its own level." This is a universal principle which is applicable to water everywhere.

Consider another principle: "Matter expands when heated." This is true anywhere, at any time, and under all circumstances. You can heat a piece of steel, and it will expand regardless whether the steel is found in China, England, or India. It is a universal truth that matter expands when heated. It is also a universal truth that whatever you impress on your subconscious mind is expressed on the screen of space as condition, experience, and event.

Your prayer is answered because your subconscious mind is principle, and by principle I mean the way a thing works. For example, the principle of electricity is that it works from a higher to a lower potential. You do not change the principle of electricity when you use it, but by co-operating with nature, you can bring forth marvelous inventions and discoveries which bless humanity in countless ways.

Your subconscious mind is principle and works according to the law of belief. You must know what belief is, why it works, and how it works. Your Bible says in a simple, clear, and beautiful way: Whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith. MARK 11:23.

The law of your mind is the law of belief. This means to believe in the way your mind works, to believe in belief itself. The belief of your mind is the thought of your mind—that is simple—just that and nothing else.

All your experiences, events, conditions, and acts are the reactions of your subconscious mind to your thoughts. Remember, it is not the thing believed in, but the belief in your own mind which brings about the result. Cease believing in the false beliefs, opinions, superstitions, and fears of mankind. Begin to believe in the eternal verities and truths of life which never change. Then, you will move onward, upward, and Godward.

Whoever reads this book and applies the principles of the subconscious mind herein set forth, will be able to pray scientifically and effectively for himself and for others. Your prayer is answered according to the universal law of action and reaction. Thought is incipient action. The reaction is the response from your subconscious mind which corresponds with the nature of your thought. Busy your mind with the concepts of harmony, health, peace, and good will, and wonders will happen in your life.


The duality of mind

You have only one mind, but your mind possesses two distinctive characteristics. The line of demarcation between the two is well known to all thinking men and women today. The two functions of your mind are essentially unlike. Each is endowed with separate and distinct attributes and powers. The nomenclature generally used to distinguish the two functions of your mind is as follows: The objective and subjective mind, the conscious and subconscious mind, the waking and sleeping mind, the surface self and the deep self, the voluntary mind and the involuntary mind, the male and the female, and many other terms. You will find the terms "conscious" and "subconscious" used to represent the dual nature of your mind throughout this book.


The conscious and subconscious minds

An excellent way to get acquainted with the two functions of your mind is to look upon your own mind as a garden. You are a gardener, and you are planting seeds (thoughts) in your subconscious mind all day long, based on your habitual thinking. As you sow in your subconscious mind, so shall you reap in your body and environment.

Begin now to sow thoughts of peace, happiness, right action, good will, and prosperity. Think quietly and with interest on these qualities and accept them fully in your conscious reasoning mind. Continue to plant these wonderful seeds (thoughts) in the garden of your mind, and you will reap a glorious harvest. Your subconscious mind may be likened to the soil which will grow all kinds of seeds, good or bad. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? Every thought is, therefore, a cause, and every condition is an effect. For this reason, it is essential that you take charge of your thoughts so as to bring forth only desirable conditions.

When your mind thinks correctly, when you understand the truth, when the thoughts deposited in your subconscious mind are constructive, harmonious, and peaceful, the magic working power of your subconscious will respond and bring about harmonious conditions, agreeable surroundings, and the best of everything. When you begin to control your thought processes, you can apply the powers of your subconscious to any problem or difficulty. In other words, you will actually be consciously co-operating with the infinite power and omnipotent law which governs all things.

Look around you wherever you live and you will notice that the vast majority of mankind lives in the world without; the more enlightened men are intensely interested in the world within. Remember, it is the world within, namely, your thoughts, feelings, and imagery that makes your world without. It is, therefore, the only creative power, and everything which you find in your world of expression has been created by you in the inner world of your mind consciously or unconsciously.

A knowledge of the interaction of your conscious and subconscious minds will enable you to transform your whole life. In order to change external conditions, you must change the cause. Most men try to change conditions and circumstances by working with conditions and circumstances. To remove discord, confusion, lack, and limitation, you must remove the cause, and the cause is the way you are using your conscious mind. In other words, the way you are thinking and picturing in your mind.

You are living in a fathomless sea of infinite riches. Your subconscious is very sensitive to your thoughts. Your thoughts form the mold or matrix through which the infinite intelligence, wisdom, vital forces, and energies of your subconscious flow. The practical application of the laws of your mind as illustrated in each chapter of this book will cause you to experience abundance for poverty, wisdom for superstition and ignorance, peace for pain, joy for sadness, light for darkness, harmony for discord, faith and confidence for fear, success for failure, and freedom from the law of averages. Certainly, there can be no more wonderful blessing than these from a mental, emotional, and material standpoint.

Most of the great scientists, artists, poets, singers, writers, and inventors have a deep understanding of the workings of the conscious and subconscious minds.

One time Caruso, the great operatic tenor, was struck with stage fright. He said his throat was paralyzed due to spasms caused by intense fear which constricted the muscles of his throat. Perspiration poured copiously down his face. He was ashamed because in a few minutes he had to go out on the stage, yet he was shaking with fear and trepidation. He said, "They will laugh at me. I can't sing." Then he shouted in the presence of those behind the stage, "The Little Me wants to strangle the Big Me within."

He said to the Little Me, "Get out of here, the Big Me wants to sing through me."

By the Big Me, he meant the limitless power and wisdom of his subconscious mind, and he began to shout, "Get out, get out, the Big Me is going to sing!"

His subconscious mind responded releasing the vital forces within him. When the call came, he walked out on the stage and sang gloriously and majestically, enthralling the audience.

It is obvious to you now that Caruso must have understood the two levels of mind—the conscious or rational, and the subconscious or irrational level. Your subconscious mind is reactive and responds to the nature of your thoughts. When your conscious mind (the Little Me) is full of fear, worry, and anxiety, the negative emotions engendered in your subconscious mind (the Big Me) are released and flood the conscious mind with a sense of panic, foreboding, and despair. When this happens, you can, like Caruso, speak affirmatively and with a deep sense of authority to the irrational emotions generated in your deeper mind as follows: "Be still, be quiet, I am in control, you must obey me, you are subject to my command, you cannot intrude where you do not belong."

It is fascinating and intensely interesting to observe how you can speak authoritatively and with conviction to the irrational movement of your deeper self bringing silence, harmony, and peace to your mind. The subconscious is subject to the conscious mind, and that is why it is called subconscious or subjective.


Outstanding differences and modes of operation

You will perceive the main differences by the following illustrations: The conscious mind is like the navigator or captain at the bridge of a ship. He directs the ship and signals orders to men in the engine room, who in turn control all the boilers, instruments, gauges, etc. The men in the engine room do not know where they are going; they follow orders. They would go on the rocks if the man on the bridge issued faulty or wrong instructions based on his findings with the compass, sextant, or other instruments. The men in the engine room obey him because he is in charge and issues orders which are automatically obeyed. Members of the crew do not talk back to the captain; they simply carry out orders.

The captain is the master of his ship, and his decrees are carried out. Likewise, your conscious mind is the captain and the master of your ship, which represents your body, environment, and all your affairs. Your subconscious mind takes the orders you give it based upon what your conscious mind believes, and accepts as true.

When you repeatedly say to people, "I can't afford it," then your subconscious mind takes you at your word and sees to it that you will not be in a position to purchase what you want. As long as you persist in saying, "I can't afford that car, that trip to Europe, that home, that fur coat or ermine wrap," you can rest assured that your subconscious mind will follow your orders, and you will go through life experiencing the lack of all these things.

Last Christmas Eve a beautiful young university student looked at an attractive and rather expensive traveling bag in a store window. She was going home to Buffalo, New York, for the holidays. She was about to say, "I can't afford that bag," when she recalled something she had heard at one of my lectures which was, "Never finish a negative statement; reverse it immediately, and wonders will happen in your life."

    A WHOLE LOT OF WISDOM IN JUST ONE BOOK!

    This book is truly an amazing book - I don't care when it was written - it is priceless. In August 1999 I wrote a review on it on Amazon.com and what I said then still stands - it is the "start" of the rest of your life. One cannot read it and not be changed by it. A day or two ago, I again started re-reading it - I do that when I sense the need to get back on the right path. It is inspiring, motivating, providing a guidance and direction rarely found in today's books. Dr. Murphy squeezed every nugget of truth he held in-between the lines. I've recommended it to many people, some finding it hard to relate it to today's world but when you want a diamond sometimes you have to polish it... I am so ever grateful that God touched this man's heart to write this book. It has been with me through thick and thin and I will cherish its truths no matter how fast the world turns! One other book I keep next to this one is the Magic of Thinking Big by David Scwhartz. It too is amazing and makes one look at life differently. I highly recommend these two books for the truth-seeker. Ahh, the secret of life in just one book..well, make that two books!

    Buy This Book and Solve Your Problems!

    Please, if you are reading this right now and you are looking for a way to solve your most pressing problems or to fulfill an unmet desire in such a way as to not hurt anyone, in a fast way, in a guaranteed way....buy this book and apply the principles!! All the reviewers can't be wrong. We have no interest in speaking well of this book other than to help other people. I came upon this book because someone had the generousity to recommend it to me; I am doing the same. Some of my successes with using the techniques are as follows: --I always wanted to live in abroad. At the time I was literally living on a relative's floor, saving up money but working a job I didn't particularly like. That was in November that I first read this book. By the last week of January the following year (yes, less than 90 days later), I moved to Europe, found a place in less than 24 hours (even though everyone says it could take months). I literally live in walking distance to a small palace and lake too-- and less than 90 days before I was living on someone's floor!! --Later when I decided to move, I found another place. I visualized the exact place I wanted. Even though I was 4th in line for the place I wanted, I got the exact place I had written down as being my first choice. Someone had even left behind supplies I needed to buy thus I didn't have to buy them myself! What more can I say? When you are successful with using these principles, buy a copy and give it to someone who needs it and will be willing to stick with it long enough for it to work. The key is sticking with it, being tenacious until you see results; expect things to happen easily and quickly though. And if it takes a little time, that is okay to because it WILL work. Finally, this book is especially helpful in showing you how to use mind dynamics to easily attract your ideal mate. I recommend reading the chapter on attracting a partner from this book, also in conjunction wth his book The Cosmic Energizer (esp. the chapter on marriage which is chapter 13.; there is also a good case study/success story in chapter 7 discussing how someone was successful in using this technique. You can also get his book from Devorss Press (just google them) 'Collected Essays of Joseph' Murphy' and read his Essay 'Love is Freedom' which is very, very inspiring and helpful). Buy Dr. Murphy's works today--you will be so happy you did!!

    Modern day knowledge about the power of our hidden subconscious minds

    This book is actually two previously published books: The Power of Your Subconscious Mind, originally published in 1963, and How to Attract Money, originally published in 1955. This new compilation expertly presents modern day knowledge and fascinating information about the power of our hidden subconscious minds. Murphy, (1898-1981) a new thought minister, believed that the subconscious mind is a darkroom where we develop the images that are to be played out in real life. The conscious mind sees an event, takes a picture of it and remembers it, while the subconscious mind works backward, seeing something before it happens (and this is why intuition is infallible). The subconscious responds to habit and regular habitual thinking. It is totally neutral in a moral sense, and is happy to adopt any habit as normal - whether good or bad. Unaware of our negative thoughts, we let them drop into our subconscious in every minute of our lives, and then are surprised when they find expression in daily experiences and relationships. When we become aware of this process and unearth the gems of knowledge that are hidden, we can become free from the patterns that we have created. A great read with many useful techniques and ideas. - Jelina Vance, New Connexion Journal

    A MUST HAVE for everyone over age seven!

    I first read this book about 25 years ago. Seeing it's revised edition made me want to read that as well and liked it even better. Ian M. related many facts to bible verses proving God's plan for our knowledge on this topic. The subsconscious mind is our inner self and can do so much for our good and the good of all. It is still as engrossing as ever and when put to the test... it never fails to amaze me! I bought copies for several friends and my two adult children.

    I wish I had shared this information with my children when I first read it. I thought I would wait until they were older. Now I know there is no time like the present and wish I had done it right then. They were not too young to learn about the workings of their subsconscious mind and how it can help them in every way! It's such a riviting and quick read. You will not be sorry you bought this book!!!

    Detailed Guide for Achieving What's Important

    This new edition of the classic, The Power of Your Subconscious Mind, is the best book it has been my pleasure to read on how to engage your mind to accomplish more. The new edition, revised by Dr. McMahan, is clearly more than a five star book. If you sincerely want to improve, this book will make many powerful contributions to your efforts to do so. The book begins by describing the relationship between your conscious (active, focused thoughts) and subconscious (automatic thoughts, such as directing your breathing and heart beat) mental processes. Your subconscious mind is able to tap into all of your memories (even ones that you cannot consciously remember) and takes emotionally-laden messages seriously (that's why you get adrenaline pumping when you feel afraid, so you have more energy to get away from danger). The key lesson of this is that if you consciously believe something, your subconscious mind is ingenious in finding solutions to your problem. An example comes with the well-known placebo effect. If you give people a sugar pill and tell them it will cure their disease, many people will be cured. The way this works is that their belief in the cure provides changes in the biochemistry of the body that causes the body to go back into a healthy state. This effect has been found to work with those who focus on innovation. They will leave a problem for their subconscious mind to focus on, and soon a solution appears in a day-dream or in a sleeping dream. The book takes these well-known connections and applies them into virtually every area of living including: Overcoming disease Achieving a result you want Wealth building Innovating Avoiding marital problems Experiencing happiness Having harmonious relations with other people Forgiveness Removing mental blocks to progress (such as writers experience) Reducing or eliminating fear Staying young in spirit as the body ages. The book provides general descriptions of how these mental processes affect physical reality. Each subject area then contains some examples that relate to the specific area of improvement. Some examples are well-known ones, while others come from the author's life. General references are then cited to reinforce the lessons here, which include the New Testament, historical experiences, scientific studies, and contemporary research on these effects. Finally, the relevant section concludes with very specific instructions for pursuing the effects. This information usually includes possible affirmations to reiterate with emotional conviction several times a day. I personally can subscribe that the methods here work, having employed them in my life for many years. Unlike the books that encourage you to do affirmations, this one makes the connection to holding real belief and experiencing emotion about that belief. Affirmations that are not based on emotional belief that you have made these changes are a waste of time. Most people know about the power of changing beliefs and acting in accordance with those beliefs. Yet, they do not follow through. They lack faith in the reality they want to create. This edition will make it much easier for you to have that faith, because the book is quite credible. If you have enjoyed books like Think and Grow Rich and The Power of Positive Thinking, you will find this book to be an improvement over even those superb self-help classics. This book provides more reasons to have confidence in this method, more ways to apply this way of improving, and directions for you in how to change more parts of your life. As you improve in one area of your life, it will be easier for you to go on and improve in the next. Let me share an experience I had in rereading this book. I was waiting for a friend who wanted to discuss some important decisions he is about to make. Because his flight was delayed, he never arrived at the meeting. With nothing to do but wait, I wandered into the

    All one needs to know is right here

    This book was recommended to me by a new friend and now I know, a very wise friend! Since reading 'The Secret', I have been on a journey of discovery and it has lead to the pot of gold in Mr. Murphy's book. I found what I was looking for - a logical, yet spiritual answer to the secret of life. Thank you Dr. Joseph Murphy.

    Juicy Stuff!

    Excellent material, easy to read and comprehend. Daily meditations are outstanding, especially combined with prayer. Testimonials are good. I bought the book the moment I picked it up. And I recommend it to all my friends.

    This will change your life!

    After coming out of a very long, very difficult period of my life, I'm in the sort-of enviable position of getting to start over again. This book is exactly what I needed to jumpstart things.

    As a rather rational Christian, I've struggled with many of the things that many practitioners take for granted. Murphy showed me a new way to look at some things, and suddenly a lot of things make a lot more sense to me.

    His methods with working for the subconscious are very simple, and I was putting many of them into practice long before I finished the book. I'm already seeing significant results.

    I just wish I'd known about this book 20 years ago! Now I want everyone I care about to read it.

    this is the real deal

    for years i had the feeling that the power of the subconcious could do wonders,but nobody ever put it in such clear way that even a five years old could understand it,i was looking for that formula(because i knew it was there)and once i found it that's it , is like one of those optical illusions that once you find the right way to look at it there is no turning back,no matter how you look at it you always going to see it the way it is,that's exactly the way this book works,once you unravel the formula,no matter how do you look at it you are going to see the truth.please buy it,free your mind,we are not getting pay for this,but it is the responsability of that one with knowledge to pass it forward and that's what we are doing,our part for a better world.

    is ok

    There are a few good points in it, but not a lot. I will say though that it was worth the purchase, just not what I had hoped for.

    A How-to Manual for Your Mind

    This is a really profound and powerful book. My mother recommended it to me, and it has made a HUGE difference in my life and in my parents' lives. It is literally a 'how-to manual' for how your conscious mind and subconscious mind work together to create your life. Everything that happens is in your control, and by following this book, my family and I have created the happiness and 'daily miracles' we wanted to. If you read any of Anthony Robbins books or are interested in Jung's theories about synchronicity, then I have found that this book is the one that ties all of those ideas together and fills them out.

    the Cheapest gift I've ever received, and it always brings me the Greatest results.

    About 5 yrs ago, my life was in the middle of struggle. I was depressed and having awful life. One day, one of my highschool teachers gave me this small book and asked me to read and try the method of Dr.Murphy's law. In the beginning, I was suspicious about it, but I had no choice. So I read through and tried every steps. Somehow, Dr.Murphy's methods worked for me quickly. My life suddenly became better and better. Since then, I read this book whenever I face to some sort of trouble. Almost 100%, I can find solutions...After all, my dreams comes true so easily....
