  1. It is often true that conditions of love, serenity, abundance, health, harmony and blessings of all kinds dominate us by reason of true suggestions accepted by the guarded subconscious mind. All this the trained conscious mind can entirely create by its vigilant protective action. It may properly be called the watcher at the gate of the great subconscious domain.
  2. One writer has expressed the chief distinction between the two phases of mind thus: Conscious mind is reasoning will. Subconscious mind is instinctive desire, the result of past reasoning will.
  3. The subconscious mind draws just and accurate inferences from premises furnished from outside sources. Where the premise is true, the subconscious mind reaches a true conclusion. But the subconscious mind accepts all impressions. It relies upon the conscious mind, the watcher at the gate, to guard it from untrue impressions.
  4. Receiving any suggestions as true, the subconscious mind at once proceeds to act thereon in the whole domain of its tremendous field of work. The conscious mind can suggest either truth or not. If the former, it is at the profit of wide-reaching benefit to the whole being.
  5. The conscious mind ought to be on duty during every waking hour. When the watcher is on guard, or when its calm judgment is active, under a variety of circumstances, then the subconscious mind is guarded and left open only to positive suggestion from any and all sources. During the calm quiet of serenity, or during the levelness of peace, or the considered action of a responsible person, or at any other time of restrained passion, the conditions are most beneficial. The sub-conscious mind is then open to the suggestion of love, friendship, generosity, altruism, self-appreciation and other positive forces, derived from surrounding persons or circumstances. The result is usually wholesome in the extreme, with effects that may endure for a long time. Hence, the great importance of guarding the subconscious mind to allow only true impressions.
  6. The subconscious mind perceives by intuition. Hence, its processes are rapid. It is quicker than the slow methods of conscious reasoning. In fact, it cannot employ them.
