Your superconscious mind serves as your personal advanced avionics and guidance system. To use this mind, you first determine your exact destination or goal. You write it down, thereby programming it into your subconscious mind. When your goal is clear to your subconscious mind, it is passed over to your super-conscious mind, which then works on it twenty-four hours a day until your goal is achieved and your destination is reached.

The superconscious mind has been known and talked about throughout human history. Mystics and religious teachers have called it the “God Mind.” Ralph Waldo Emerson called it the “oversoul.” Carl Jung referred to it as the “collective unconscious.” Napoleon Hill referred to it as “Infinite Intelligence.” He concluded that the ability to activate it was the primary reason for the success of the wealthiest people in America. It is also referred to as “intuition,” “gut feeling,” “instinct,” or “the inner voice.”

It doesn’t matter whether you are religious or nonreligious, spiritual or nonspiritual. Your superconscious mind is the greatest power available to you, and properly directed, it can enable you to achieve any goal and reach any destination that you can set for yourself, as long as your goal is clear. It is one of the most important secrets of success.

Your superconscious mind attracts into your life people, ideas, and resources in harmony with your dominant thoughts. It brings you everything you need to succeed.

You can tap into your superconscious mind, like a supercomputer, at any time for ideas, solutions, guidance, and assistance. It becomes more powerful and grows in capability the more you use and believe in it. When you start to tap into your superconscious mind on a regular basis, it will begin to operate easily and automatically to solve your problems and achieve your goals.

Clear commandments

Your superconscious mind is activated by clear commands in the form of positive affirmations. These are the present-tense, positive, personal statements that you make from your conscious mind to your subconscious mind. Each time you make a positive affirmation or statement of your goal as if it were already realized, you activate your superconscious mind.

Emotionalized mental images, pictures, and visualizations also activate your superconscious mind. The greater clarity you have regarding the goals you desire and the more emotion with which you can visualize these goals, the faster your superconscious mind will bring them into your life.

Way of working

Your superconscious mind automatically and continuously solves every problem on the way to your goal, as long as your goal is clear. By writing out your goals clearly and specifically, you actually program them into your superconscious guidance system, where they then take on a life and a power of their own.

Whether you are awake, asleep, or busy with other activities, your superconscious mind works twenty-four hours a day. Once you have decided upon your goal, you can go about your daily life while your superconscious mind works on it, the same as you would do when you feed a question into a computer and let it run.

Your superconscious mind functions best with an attitude of calm, confident expectations. When you confidently believe and expect that you will achieve the exact goal or answer for you at exactly the right time, your superconscious mind will work quickly and efficiently.

This mind is always instantly available to you to help you achieve any goal, solve any problem, or overcome any obstacle. It will solve your financial problems, lead you to your soul mate, and guide you to your heart’s desire.

Success and happiness

Your superconscious mind is your devoted servant. It wants you to succeed and to succeed greatly. It wants you to be happy, healthy, and prosperous and enjoy a wonderful, satisfying life.

But your superconscious mind also knows that you need to learn certain lessons to be able to hold on to your success once you achieve it. This power will bring you these lessons one at a time, in sequence, like a good teacher instructing a student. Your job is to look into every setback or difficulty that you experience for the valuable lesson that it contains. Always ask yourself when things seem to go wrong, What can I learn from this experience?

Take immediate action

Your superconscious mind will bring you exactly the answer you need at exactly the right time for you. But this answer will be “time dated.” When you receive a superconscious answer, you must act on it immediately.

When you are working on a problem or goal and you get an impulse to make a phone call, buy a book, speak to a person, or take any particular action, move quickly. Don’t delay. If you wait for twenty-four hours or even for a few minutes, it may be too late.

Your superconscious mind often speaks to you in the form of ideas. Some of the most successful people in history have achieved greatness by taking action on a single idea that shot into their mind like a bolt of lightning.

Activating it

You can deliberately activate the powers of your superconscious mind in several ways. Take a sheet of paper and write down every detail of the problem you are facing. Sometimes the very act of writing out every detail of the problem or situation—how it occurred, what effect it’s having, what you can do, and so on—triggers your superconscious mind into giving you the perfect solution.

Another way to activate your superconscious mind is to forget about the problem completely. Get so busy working on something else that you have no time at all to think about the problem.

Then, at exactly the right time for you, the right answer will pop into your mind. But remember, when it does, you must take action immediately.

Throughout history, great men and women have tapped into their superconscious minds by meditation or what is called “mind calming.” Hen you relax completely and let your mind go blank, very often a superconscious idea emerges.
