“The Power of Your Subconscious Mind” by Joseph Murphy --- a Review

I am on a mission to help 100000 people with my writing by helping students and parents for career counselling, mentor, life coaching.....


Our subconscious is based on the belief, which is built from past incidents and experiences of our life. Some of these are true and some of them are false. This leads to conclude that we can train our subconscious to form a new belief and make things happen. This book describes how the subconscious mind works and how to achieve something you want by training it. The book contains numerous practical examples of various stages of life. The examples are provided from real-life scenarios, which many people face and struggle to cope with.

Our mind is divided into two parts psychologically, i.e., the conscious and the subconscious. The conscious thinks rationally based on facts, figure and current situations. The subconscious thinks irrationally and focuses on making the thing happen without arguing about it. Training the subconscious mind is like training the subordinate who obeys the orders of the commander. The training of our subconscious depends on the way you have developed our beliefs. The popular example of this could be taken from a story where the elephant believed that it could not break the chain. Since the baby elephant was chained up through the birth, it believed that the chain was unbreakable and therefore found it impossible to break it. The same happens to human consciousness.

Our mind is just like fertile land and whatever we will sow will be reaped by us. If a farmer will sow seeds in the ground and will water and add nutrients while applying fertilizers and removing weeds then he has a deep faith that the produce will flourish and he will harvest it to have the food gains. He waits for the perfect time of the season and works hard continuously.

The human mind also works similarly as land and we are the farmers. What we want to accomplish or acquire resembles the seed. We need to remind our subconscious mind about the goal. The regular reminder works just like the farmer waters and nourishes the land. The removal of weeds is similar to protecting our subconscious mind from ambiguous and adverse thoughts. It is crucial to have faith and to reach the goal in your mind’s eye on a subconscious level before actually reaching it consciously. This can be applied to the example of the farmer who continuously works in the field having the faith that he will harvest the crop one day.

In this book, Mr Murphy had explained how successful people in the past used the power of the subconscious to achieve what they wanted in their life. You can have an idea from the list below what we can achieve by training our subconscious.

How our Subconscious Mind Works?

The subconscious mind has unlimited potential and ultimate power. Our subconscious is connected with the universal power at a deeper level of consciousness of our mind. This helps to fulfil or achieve any dream or goal. Our subconscious works with the reference point of our strong faith and belief, which you have built over time. Hence, to train our subconscious mind to accomplish something, you should visualise it, imagine it, and have a faith in it followed by the routine practice. Eventually, after some time or so you will start getting the result.

Our subconscious cannot what is real and what is imaginary. It is just like dreamy or hypnotises state wherein we feel everything happening is so real. To accomplish our goal we should also believe we are accomplishing it at the subconscious level.

To make you feel that the accomplishment happening Murphy suggest to use affirmations in present continuous tenses, e.g. “I am getting healthier, wealthier and prosperous every day”. Similarly, we can also formulate our affirmation sentences according to our goal. These kinds of affirmations help to build our belief system strong and prevent the logical mind to argue to negative internal talks.

Why do We Think Negative and Adverse?

By default out mind is not trained to stay focused. Along with that in today’s digital era, we continuously distracted now and then. As a result, we are unable to accomplish our task or goal. This leads to anxiety, low self-esteem, and provokes negativity and confusion. These things subsequently give negative signs to our subconscious. Hence, all our efforts to reach the goal become worthless and we have to restart from the beginning. There is a direct relationship between our focus and getting the work done. A much focus we will be to do something we will put more effort to accomplish anyhow. Subsequently, the work is done with time.

Why do Some People Fail to Train Their Subconscious?

As explained earlier our subconscious obeys the instructions given to it irrespective of being good or bad. The lack of concentration leads to deviate from our main goal. It results self-doubts, worry and finally ends up with unfinished goal. While training the subconscious we mainly fail in these three stages.

  1. Continuous training our subconscious without distraction
  2. Visualizing the progress every day
  3. Firmly believing one day, it will be achieved.

Once, after training a few weeks we do not realizing the progress then we start questioning. Star thinking negatively this give our subconscious the confusing directions to follow. This eventually ends up with no result. Then, some of these people say that it is just a good story and forces others to believe without doing any thinks without performing and appropriate action. It is hard to understand and believe for these kind people.


This book is indeed a book with an action plan to rewire your subconscious. You can follow the following steps.

  1. Understand that fact that, your mind makes the decision based on the conditioning of your subconscious and the belief we have.
  2. Make a clear goal with details.
  3. Visualize it every day in details with involving the senses and emotions.
  4. Work upon it continuously and Belief on continuous progress
  5. Consciously stay away from negative thoughts --- this will make your all effort zero.
  6. It is crucial to have a determined belief to achieve your goal.
