Secret Door Of Success
Florence Scovel Shinn: “
In the 23rd Psalm we read, “He restoreth my soul.” Your soul is your subconscious mind and must be re-stored with the right ideas.
Whatever you feel deeply is impressed upon the subconscious, and manifests in your affairs.
If you are convinced that you are a failure, you will be a failure, until you impress the subconscious with the conviction you are a success.
This is done by making an affirmation which “clicks.”
A friend in a meeting said that I had given her the statement as she was leaving the room—”The ground you are on is harvest ground.” Things with her, had been very dull; but this statement clicked.
“Harvest Ground, Harvest Ground,” rang in her ears. Good things immediately commenced to come to her, and happy surprises.
The reason it is necessary to make an affirmation is because repetition impresses the subconscious. You cannot control your thoughts at first, but you can control your words, and Jesus Christ said: “By your words you are justified and by your words you are condemned.”
Every day, choose the right words; the right thoughts!
The Imaging faculty is the creative faculty: “Out of the imaginations of the heart come the issues of life.”
We have all a bank we can draw upon, the Bank of the Imagination.
Let us imagine ourselves rich, well and happy: imagine all our affairs in divine order; but leave the way of fulfillment to Infinite Intelligence.
“He has weapons ye know not of,” He has channels which will surprise you.
One of the most important passages in the 23rd Psalm is—”Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies.”
This means that even in the presence of the enemy situation, brought on by your doubts, fears or resentments, a way out is prepared for you.
