Question by Peter The Focused: Who believes in the “auto-suggestion” formula to be a life changer?
There is law of Nature, which no man has yet been able to explain. It has baffled the scientist for all ages. Psychologists have named this law “auto-suggestion,” and let it go at that. It works for the glory and success of mankind, IF it is used constructively.
Nothing can stop you from “deceiving” your subconscious mind when giving it instruction through “auto-suggestion”. Speaking, seeing, hearing all leads to thinking. This law is unexplained but proven to be fact (thoughts are the beginning of all things). It is made clearer when presented in the words of a famous criminologist, that said:
“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.”
In this same way, any impulseof thought which is repeatedly passed on to the subconscious mind is , eventually and finally, accepted and acted upon by the subconscious mind, which then works to turn that impulse into its physical copy. Whether a statement is true or false, if you repeat it to yourself over and over again, letting it enter into your subconscious mind, you will believe it.
“Auto-suggestion” also takes responsibility those which most people today call “misfortune” or “bad luck” and even “good luck”. The subconscious mind turns into its physical copy any thought impulse whether it is negative or positive, leading to either good luck or bad luck.
The famous saying by the great Henry Ford: “Whether You Think You Can or Can’t, You’re Right” – this is clearly explained and reasonable when bringing up natures law of “auto-suggestion”. Although most don’t quite understand it, I was wondering if anyone, through witnessing or learning or even personal experience, believes it to be true.
Answer by Leviticus
Why would you continually repeat a statement to yourself that you believe is false?
Anyway there’s not really any such thing as luck, events are either sheer chance (e.g. an airplane just happens to fall on your house) or they are caused by your own actions (e.g. you drive drunk and run into a tree). Convincing yourself that you are lucky or unlucky won’t change those things, all it will change is how you percieve them. eg An airplane fell on my house, lucky that I just renewed my insurance.
