Chapter 9 – How to Use the Power of Your
Subconscious for Wealth
If you are having financial difficulties, if you are trying to make ends meet, it means you
have not convinced your subconscious mind that you will always have plenty and some
to spare. You know men and women who work a few hours a week and make fabulous
sums of money. They do not strive or slave hard. Do not believe the story that the only
way you can become wealthy is by the sweat of your brow and hard labor. It is not so; the
effortless way of life is the best. Do the thing you love to do, and do it for the joy and
thrill of it.
I know an executive in Los Angeles who receives a salary of $75,000 yearly. Last year he
went on a nine month cruise seeing the world and its beauty spots. He said to me that he
had succeeded in convincing his subconscious mind that he is worth that much money.
He told me that many men in his organization getting about one hundred dollars a week
knew more about the business than he did, and could manage it better, but they had no
ambition, no creative ideas, and were not interested in the wonders of their subconscious
Wealth is of the mind
Wealth is simply a subconscious conviction on the part of the individual. You will not
become a millionaire by saying, “I am a millionaire, I am a millionaire.” You will grow
into a wealth consciousness by building into your mentality the idea of wealth and
Your invisible means of support
The trouble with most people is that they have no invisible means of support. When
business falls away, the stock market drops, or they lose their investments, they seem
helpless. The reason for such insecurity is that they do not know how to tap the
subconscious mind. They are unacquainted with the inexhaustible storehouse within.
A man with a poverty type mind finds himself in poverty stricken conditions. Another
man with a mind filled with ideas of wealth is surrounded with everything he needs. It
was never intended that man should lead a life of indigence. You can have wealth,
everything you need, and plenty to spare. Your words have power to cleanse your mind
of wrong ideas and to instill right ideas in their place.
The ideal method for building a wealth consciousness –
Perhaps you are saying as you read this chapter, “I need wealth and success.” This is
what you do: Repeat for about five minutes to yourself three or four times a day,
“Wealth—Success.” These words have tremendous power. They represent the inner
power of the subconscious mind. Anchor your mind on this substantial power within you;
then conditions and circumstances corresponding to their nature and quality will
be manifested in your life. You are not saying, “I am wealthy,” you are dwelling on real
powers within you. There is no conflict in the mind when you say, “Wealth.”
Furthermore, the feeling of wealth will well up within you as you dwell on the idea of
The feeling of wealth produces wealth; keep this in mind at all times. Your subconscious
mind is like a bank, a sort of universal financial institution. It magnifies whatever you
deposit or impress upon it whether it is the idea of wealth or of poverty. Choose wealth.
I have talked to many people during the past thirty-five years whose usual complaint is,
“I have said for weeks and months, ‘I am wealthy, I am prosperous,’ and nothing has
happened.” I discovered that when they said, “I am prosperous, I am wealthy,” they felt
within that they were lying to themselves.
One man told me, “I have affirmed that I am prosperous until I am tired. Things are now
worse. I knew when I made the statement that it was obviously not true.” His statements
were rejected by the conscious mind, and the very opposite of what he outwardly
affirmed and claimed was made manifest.
Your affirmation succeeds best when it is specific and when it does not produce a mental
conflict or argument; hence the statements made by this man made matters worse because
they suggested his lack. Your subconscious accepts what you really feel to be true, not
just idle words or statements. The dominant idea or belief is always accepted by the
How to avoid mental conflict
The following is the ideal way to overcome this conflict for those who have this
difficulty. Make this practical statement frequently, particularly prior to sleep: “By day
and by night I am being prospered in all of my interests.” This affirmation will not arouse
any argument because it does not contradict your subconscious mind’s impression of
I suggested to one businessman whose sales and finances were very low and who was
greatly worried, that he sit down in his office, become quiet, and repeat this statement
over and over again: “My sales are improving every day.” This statement engaged the
cooperation of the conscious and subconscious mind; results followed.
Don’t sign blank checks
You sign blank checks when you make such statements as, “There is not enough to go
around.” “There is a shortage.” “I will lose the house because of the mortgage,” etc. If
you are full of fear about the future, you are also writing a blank check and attracting
negative conditions to you. Your subconscious mind takes your fear and negative
statement as your request and proceeds in its own way to bring obstacles, delays, lack,
and limitation into your life.
Your subconscious gives you compound interest
To him that hath the feeling of wealth, more wealth shall be added; to him that hath the
feeling of lack, more lack shall be added. Your subconscious multiplies and magnifies
whatever you deposit in it. Every morning as you awaken deposit thoughts of prosperity,
success, wealth, and peace. Dwell upon these concepts. Busy your mind with them as
often as possible. These constructive thoughts will find their way as deposits in your
subconscious mind, and bring forth abundance and prosperity.
Why nothing happened –
I can hear you saying, “Oh, I did that and nothing happened.” You did not get results
because you indulged in fear thoughts perhaps ten minutes later and neutralized the
good you had affirmed. When you place a seed in the ground, you do not dig it up.
You let it take root and grow.
Suppose, for example, you are going to say, “I shall not be able to make that payment.”
Before you get further than, “I shall—” stop the sentence and dwell on a constructive
statement, such as, “By day and by night I am prospered in all my ways.”
True source of wealth
Your subconscious mind is never short of ideas. There are within it an infinite number of
ideas ready to flow into your conscious mind and appear as cash in your pocketbook in
countless ways. This process will continue to go on in your mind regardless of whether
the stock market goes up or down, or whether the pound sterling or dollar drops in value.
Your wealth is never truly dependent on bonds, stocks, or money in the bank; these are
really only symbols necessary and useful, of course, but only symbols.
The point I wish to emphasize is that if you convince your subconscious mind that wealth
is yours, and that it is always circulating in your life, you will always and inevitably have
it, regardless of the form it takes.
Trying to make ends meet and the real cause
There are people who claim that they are always trying to make ends meet. They seem to
have a great struggle to meet their obligations. Have you listened to their conversation?
In many instances their conversation runs along this vein. They are constantly
condemning those who have succeeded in life and who have raised their heads above the
crowd. Perhaps they are saying, “Oh, that fellow has a racket; he is ruthless; he is a
crook.” This is why they lack; they are condemning the thing they desire and want. The
reason they speak critically of their more prosperous associates is because they are
envious and covetous of the others prosperity. The quickest way to cause wealth to take
wings and fly away is to criticize and condemn others who have more wealth than you.
A common stumbling block to wealth – Fear of Poverty
There is one emotion, which is the cause of the lack of wealth in the lives of many. Most
people learn this the hard way. It is envy. For example, if you see a competitor depositing
large sums of money in the bank, and you have only a meager amount to deposit, does it
make you envious? The way to overcome this emotion is to say to yourself, “Isn’t it
wonderful! I rejoice in that man’s prosperity. I wish for him greater and greater wealth.”
To entertain envious thoughts is devastating because it places you in a very negative
position; therefore, wealth flows from you instead of to you. If you are ever annoyed or
irritated by the prosperity or great wealth of another, claim immediately that you truly
wish for him greater wealth in every possible way. This will neutralize the negative
thoughts in your mind and cause an ever greater measure of wealth to flow to you by the
law of your own subconscious mind.
Rubbing out a great mental block to wealth
If you are worried and critical about someone whom you claim is making money
dishonestly, cease worrying about him. You know such a person is using the law of mind
negatively; the law of mind takes care of him. Be careful not to criticize him for the
reasons previously indicated. Remember: The block or obstacle to wealth is in your own mind. You can now destroy that mental block. This you may do by getting on mental good terms with everyone.
Sleep and grow rich
As you go to sleep at night, practice the following technique. Repeat the word, “Wealth,”
quietly, easily, and feelingly. Do this over and over again, just like a lullaby. Lull
yourself to sleep with the one word, “Wealth.” You should be amazed at the result.
Wealth should flow to you in avalanches of abundance. This is another example of the
magic power of your subconscious mind.
Serve yourself with the powers of your mind
1. Decide to be wealthy the easy way, with the infallible aid of your subconscious mind.
2. Trying to accumulate wealth by the sweat of your brow and hard labor is one way to
become the richest man in the graveyard. You do not have to strive or slave hard.
3. Wealth is a subconscious conviction. Build into your mentality the idea of wealth.
4. The trouble with most people is that they have no invisible means of support.
5. Repeat the word, “Wealth,” to yourself slowly and quietly for about five minutes prior
to sleep and your subconscious will bring wealth to pass in your experience.
6. The feeling of wealth produces wealth. Keep this in mind at all times.
7. Your conscious and subconscious mind must agree. Your subconscious accepts what
you really feel to be true. The dominant idea is always accepted by your subconscious
mind. The dominant idea should be wealth, not poverty.
8. You can overcome any mental conflict regarding wealth by affirming frequently, “By
day and by night I am being prospered in all of my interests.”
9. Increase your sales by repeating this statement over and over again, “My sales are
improving every day; I am advancing, progressing, and getting wealthier every day.”
10. Stop writing blank checks, such as, “There is not enough to go around,” or “There is a
shortage,” etc. Such statements magnify and multiply your loss.
11. Deposit thoughts of prosperity, wealth, and success in your subconscious mind, and
the latter will give you compound interest.
12. What you consciously affirm, you must not mentally deny a few moments later. This
will neutralize the good you have affirmed.
13. Your true source of wealth consists of the ideas in your mind. You can have an idea
worth millions of dollars. Your subconscious will give you the idea you seek.
14. Envy and jealousy are stumbling blocks to the flow of wealth. Rejoice in the
prosperity of others.
15. The block to wealth is in your own mind. Destroy that block now by getting on good
mental terms with everyone.
