How to use Autosuggestion (or Affirmations)

Affirmations are a very effective way to reprogram our subconscious beliefs. Napoleon Hill wrote about this as a way to connect to the powers of the universe. This article is specifically about manifesting money, but you can use the formula to manifest anything that is part of your Divine Purpose.

First: Go to a quite spot where you will not be disturbed or interrupted. Close your eyes and repeat aloud (so you may hear your own words) the written statement of the amount of money you intend to accumulate, the time limit for its accumulation, and a description of the service or merchandise you decide to give in return for the money. As you carry out these instructions see yourself already in possession of the money.

For example: suppose you intend to accumulate $500,000 by the first of January, five years hence, that you intend to give personal service in return for the money, in the capacity of salesman. Your written statement of your purpose should be similar to the following:

“By the first of January 2017, I will have possession of $500,000, which will come to me in various amounts during the interim.

In return for this money I will give the most efficient service of which I am capable, rendering the fullest possible quantity, and the best possible quality of service in the capacity of  salesman of (describe the service or merchandise you intend to sell).

“I believe that I will have this money in my possession. My faith is so strong that I can now see this money before my eyes. I can touch it with my hands. It is now awaiting transfer to me at the time, and in the proportion that I deliver the service I intend to render in return for it. I am awaiting a plan by which to accumulate this money, and I will follow the plan when it is received.”

Second: Repeat this program night and morning until you can see, (in your imagination) the money you intend to accumulate.

Remember, as you carry out these instructions, that you are applying the principles of auto-suggestion, for the purpose of giving orders to your subconscious mind. Remember, also, that your subconscious mind will act only upon instructions that are emotionalized, and handed over to it with “feeling.”  Faith is the strongest and most productive of the emotions . . .

These instructions, at first, seem abstract. Do not let this disturb you.  Follow the instructions no matter how abstract or impractical or abstract they may, at first, appear to be. The time will soon come if you do as you have been instructed, in spirit as well as in act, when a whole new universe of power will unfold to you. (Hill, Think and Grow Rich, p.62)
