therefore, upon the subject of self-suggestion, and find out what it
is, and what it is capable of achieving.
It is a well known fact that one comes, finally, to BELIEVE
whatever one repeats to one’s self, whether the statement be true or
false. If a man repeats a lie over and over, he will eventually accept
the lie as truth. Moreover, he will BELIEVE it to be the truth. Every
man is what he is, because of the DOMINATING THOUGHTS which
he permits to occupy his mind. Thoughts which a man deliberately
places in his own mind, and encourages with sympathy, and with
which he mixes any one or more of the emotions, constitute the
motivating forces, which direct and control his every movement, act,
Comes, now, a very significant statement of truth:
THOUGHTS WHICH ARE MIXED WITH ANY OF THE
FEELINGS OF EMOTIONS, CONSTITUTE A “MAGNETIC” FORCE
WHICH ATTRACTS, FROM THE VIBRATIONS OF THE ETHER,
OTHER SIMILAR, OR RELATED THOUGHTS. A thought thus
“magnetized” with emotion may be compared to a seed which, when
planted in fertile soil, germinates, grows, and multiplies itself over
and over again, until that which was originally one small seed, be-
comes countless millions of seeds of the SAME BRAND!
The ether is a great cosmic mass of eternal forces of vibration.
It is made up of both destructive vibrations and constructive
vibrations. It carries, at all times, vibrations of fear, poverty,
disease, failure, misery; and vibrations of prosperity, health,
success, and happiness, just as surely as it carries the sound of
hundreds of orchestrations of music, and hundreds of human
voices, all of which maintain their own individuality, and means of
identification, through the medium of radio.
From the great storehouse of the ether, the human mind is
constantly attracting vibrations which harmonize with that which
DOMINATES the human mind. Any thought, idea, plan, or purpose
which one holds in one’s mind attracts, from the vibrations of the
ether, a host of its relatives, adds these “relatives” to its own force,
and grows until it becomes the dominating, MOTIVATING MASTER
of the individual in whose mind it has been housed.
Now, let us go back to the starting point, and become informed
as to how the original seed of an idea, plan, or purpose may be
planted in the mind. The information is easily conveyed: any idea,
plan, or purpose may be placed in the mind through repetition of
