The conscious mind is thus ‘reasoning will’ and the subconscious ‘instinctive desire’.
What am I getting at? to intend the power of the mind to use the Law of Attraction consciously as a tool in its creation of your tangible world. I think the reason that so many people have not understood this natural law is, because of the fact that generating negative though also produced such in reality – so much so that it either negates your positive thoughts or, in most cases, completely overwhelms and replaces them. ONE HAS TO CONSTANTLY STIVE TO BE POSITIVE AND REJECT ALL NEGATIVE THOUGHT – whether that is about the petrol price increasing or not getting something right from the word ‘go’ in practice - or thought.
By the Law of Attraction we really are what we think, do and feel – and it is thus very literally a direct indication of whom we are.
In this light, one also needs to realise that tension will only lead to mental unrest and feeble mental activity, which produces worry, fear and anxiety. To be able to use conscious mental power, relaxation is a priority, for without a relaxed and awake mind, conscious creation is not possible. Make this a daily exercise – to relax the mind; for conscious power can only be attained if one practices it - like anything else.
Our greatest power, as humans, lies in the ability to think, but not many people know how to think constructively and thus mainly achieve only indifferent results. When you allow your thoughts to dwell on self-serving purposes, the mind remains underdeveloped. A mature mind develops through practising silence and it comes to understand that the crux of defeat is found in every selfish thought.
Also bear in mind that one can only think for oneself and create for your self. Attempting to create for another and/or influencing another’s mind to what you deem appropriate will only lead to your own eventual unhinging of mental power over your own life.
Also remember that over-work, over-play or over-bodily activity of any kind produces mental apathy and stagnation in the realisation of conscious power. When we are still, we can think – and correct thought is the secret of all attainment.
Physical stillness is the first step to self-control and self-mastery.
“Matter is powerless, passive, inert. Mind is force, energy, power. Mind shapes and controls matter. Every form which matter takes is but the expression of some pre-existing thought.
But thought works no magic transformation; it obeys natural laws; it sets in motion natural forces; it releases natural energies; it manifests in your conduct and actions, and these in turn react upon your friends and acquaintances, and eventually upon the whole of your environment.”
