Really enjoyed this book. Even though there is a lot of information imparted in the book and it is, it is broken in to many small sections (chunks as I call them), making the book much easier to read. Even though this books was written many year ago (first published in 1963), everything in the book is still true.

I have always been interested in the topic of the of the subconscious mind, to my it is where ideas are born from, where people conscious personality and actions stem from.

I have always been interested in the topic of the of the subconscious mind, to my it is where ideas are born from, where people conscious personality and actions stem from. I like the idea of being able to program it to work more for my in my daily life was intriguing. As the author say our Subconscious is at work 24 hours a day for every day of our lives. Breathing and heartbeat and all our bodily functions we do not give a second though about even when we are sleeping are controlled by our subconscious.

Being quite a spiritual man Joseph Murphy also builds in many biblical quotes with his case studies, and examples of people he had met. though I do not wholly agree internalizing God as part of the subconscious, I do see where the idea id divine knowledge comes from. Example we are bone we breath are bones and organs are formed, we do not know or have any knowledge of this at the time so how does our body and internal functions know how to function and what to do since birth? I do like the idea of the subconscious being a conduit to the divine how many times do we have something in the back of our mind and it comes to pass exactly as we envisioned it. Other thing like instinct and intuition also come from the subconscious.

This is an great informative, easy to read and most of all helpful book. The difference for me between a good and great self help or psychological book is how many of the idea in the book could be used in everyday life, I did not find anything in this book that could not be used in anyone's everyday life. Also it has stood thee test of time already. ...more

It has made me aware of the enormously faculty we have to use our full capacity of our mind to start living and seeing ourselves capable of accomplishing what ever you set your mind to be or do. I bought this book at special price from here:

I do enjoy self help books - some have even helped, but I'm afraid this is a load of tosh. Perhaps I exaggerate but its showing its age and doesn't stand up to criticism now. Three points...

1. There are far too many biblical references and one begins to suspect there is a religious driver behind this.

2. Can you seriously expect to influence someone else's health with the power of your sub-conscious - come on. Does your sub-conscious mind really heal a cut leg? I don't think so.

I do believe in the power of the sub-conscious but the author makes far too many claims for its power and how the conscious mind can influence it. ...more

A must Read!
I first read this book when I was 26 year old some 31 years ago. I've read it several times over the years and have given the book as a gift more times then I can remember. I can honestly say when I first read this book I was a young man with a family, broke, hopeless and going nowhere fast - It changed my life.
Within a year of reading "The Power..." I started my own business and to cut to the chase I retired at 52 a self made man, happily married 38 years, healthy, wealthy and wise. And I owe much of it to this book and others like it.
If you'd like to change your path in life you need to change and understand your MIND.
Buy it, read it, learn it and live it. Great book.

I've experienced it myself and thanks to this book, it helped me through my difficult time when I was laid-off from my job, due to a lack of work. I now found a new job, a great job actually. I don't know if this is just a coincidence (I don't believe in coincidences), or is it because my subconscious mind started working for me (affirmative). If you experience any difficulty in your life, keep praying and hoping, and believe me, everything will be alright in the end. This book can help in giving a new way to look at this life, a new perspective of sorts. Smile and Be Happy! ...more

Unbelievably bad for you
This is the worst kind of self-help book out there- no one endorsed it, it was written in 1963(!) and by a nobody. For an example of the *insights* that awaits you, how's this; father willing to give right arm for young daughter to heal from rheumatoid arthritis *and* psoriaris - father has car accident, father's right arm is torn right off, daughter miraculously healed - the power of the subconscious mind!
How about distant relative of author visits 'celebrated crystal gazer' in India, she predicts he's to die by next moon- man cannot shake this off (in spite of author's efforts) and dies from a heart attack on said day. Wow.... Look, there are no notes nor sources nor references whatsoever, not even a bio on this Murphy chap... there are 270 pages and over 250 chapters! That's right, mini-rants for mini attention-spans.....

Best book I've ever read
Before reading this book, I watched the movie clip "The secret" but who knew you had to pay a whole lot more money to find out how to practice the "secret" by buying more books, or taking a $500 seminar or course from one of "the secret" promoters on the clip. I couldnt afford it so I just tried doing the treasure map thing, but still...nothing. Then I read this book by Dr. Joseph Murphy. I read it several times since getting this book and DR. JOSEPH MURPHY tells you what "The secret" charges you to tell you. I know a lot of people assume its all about positive thinking ect... but its more than that. Yeah, you shouldnt think negatively, and you shouldnt dwell on the bad things in your life. Dr. Joseph Murphy tells you to dwell only on what you WANT not what you DONT want. His "secret" is getting into a "sleepy state" right before bedtime (which is just getting into Alpha level brainwave like Jose Silva teaches) and visualizing vividly as possible of what you want for 10-15 minutes before falling asleep. Also to do this as soon as you wake up in the morning again for 10-15 minutes. Well he doesnt exactly tell you for how long, but he does tell you when to do it. Visualize in the NOW in the PRESENT, where you can feel all five senses. Smell, taste, touch, hear, see...For example, you want a specific type of job...visualize feeling your hand shaking with your new boss, seeing and hearing him tell you in front of you that you got the job. Hear and see him talking to you. The key thing is to visualize in the first person, not the third person. The Third person means (if you dont know) to watch yourself shaking your new boss hand like you were watching a home video of yourself, like an observer or something. The first person would be you the ACTOR in that movie, not the Audience of that mental movie.

Anyway, sorry for the long review but if you need more details on how to visualize, get the book"creative visualization" by Shakti Gawain, she tells you step by step on how to Visualize, and manifest your desires. Her book is more in depth, while Dr. Joseph Murphy tells you why it works, how it works, how others have used it and succeeded and sample affirmations. I suggest reading this book first, then reading "Creative Visualization" by Shakti Gawain after. Then once you are done with these two, the book you must read is "The nature of personal reality" a seth book by Jane Roberts. This will answer questions about the Law of Attraction that Dr. Joseph Murphy and Shakti Gawain doesnt answer that you will have about the subject pertaining to everything else in life and a lot more. These three books will change your mind forever.

Nothing more powerful than what you already know
I bought this book on the recommendation of a co-worker. She said, "My uncle swears by this book. It's like his bible." Then she went on about how important it was to maintain positive thoughts.

Soon, another co-worker joined in and she began talking about "The Secret." It's another book with basically the same philosophy, just modernized with examples for today's generation.

There are dozens of books in print like "The Power of Your Subconscious Mind," the first of which is probably your favorite religious text. Given that, Subconscious Mind is a good book, but it requires a great deal of unwavering, unquestioning faith, even in the midst of obstacles, to believe. On one hand, the book makes no claims about the existance of God. On the other hand, if you have faith in nothing, the book forces you to believe in "something" because it's impossible to get something when "nothing" is involved.

Which brings me to my point. If you believe that reading this book will change your life, you can be almost certain that it will. For some, it will give them cause to renew their faith. And for others, it will reinforce their belief that the only way to get something done is not by sitting on the sidelines and hoping, but by getting out there and doing something about it.

Your best bet is to save your money and tap into the power you already have. You don't need to pay a publisher your hard earned money to tell you things you already know. Reading a free copy of a trusted religious text will basically give you the same results.

Deadly advice
This book offers what appears on its face to be useful advice- believe in your power of belief, which the author claims literally has a magical quality to it and can produce the future you want. Problem is, this kind of advice can prove VERY deadly, not only mentally/spiritually, but physically as well. Let me cite two personal examples of people who have practiced this and bore the fruits of its circular illogic.

My grandmother applied this to her bout with cancer, even refusing to acknowledge it as such (this refusal was part of the positive mental imagery she practiced). Started as a small skin cancer which we could all see, but she refused to see a doctor, which would have been an admission that she did not have enough faith to remove the lesion. It then grew to a carcinoma and eventually melanoma, from which she died. Her belief system, which was very real to her, was just dead wrong. Turns out, it emanates from eastern mysticism (not Christianity as this book would lead you to believe) which most often holds physical reality is an illusion, and only the universal Mind exists. This is demonstrably false.

Another family we know personally had a young son who contracted pneumonia. They followed some of the Word-Faith televangelists (Hinn, Copeland, Hagin) who, like this book, will tell you perfect health and wealth are available if you just believe in them- God will be obligated to do your bidding. Consequently, the parents believed with all their hearts that their faith would cure him and did not take him to a doctor. The little boy died shortly thereafter. His father then believed (autosuggestion?) and proclaimed his son would be brought back to life on Christmas and left him in the morgue for several months; when it did not occur, the family splintered badly and turned their back not only on each other, but on God as well. In their minds, it was not their fault for believing bad advice, but God's fault for not responding as they believed he would. Vicious circle.

This book would have you believe a falsehood- do yourself a favor and avoid it and others like it. Even if the results aren't as horrible as above, the net effect is still a form of self deification where there is the illusion of becoming a "god." Suggest instead Geisler's "When Skeptics Ask" (somewhat technical) or Strobel's "The Case for Faith" (very readable).

It's Good - But lacks details
Most of this book is a group of stories of people who've had success using their "subconscious" to achieve their desired results. It is NOT a step-by-step guide on how to use the principles of the people discussed in this book, although there is a high-level discussion on how to use the principals throughout the book. It's a long book, and I found myself expecting to find the meat of the book at the turn of the next page, never really finding it. Having said that, it's a good book, with lots of positive stories that helped me view things with a fresh and productive perspective. .

I have been working with this book for 30 years. Nothing happened.
Another Amazon customer generously provided me with a link to a female lottery winner named Cynthia Stafford after I wrote a critical review of another Murphy book called "How to Attract Money." Anybody can Google her name. Being the only student of Murphy whom I know of to speak out about her success using his techniques, after her reading of The Power of Your Subconscious Mind, I think her story is worth commenting upon as it relates to this book.

She directly credits her diligent application of Murphy's techniques to her winning the lottery. I am biased against Murphy and all other "Law of Attraction" gurus because I read this book 30 years ago, read it multiple times over the years and did all it said to do with diligence. Nothing ever happened. Therefore, I think the "Law of Attraction" is a con designed to sell books. Before I continue with Cynthia Stafford, I want to first comment on Murphy's Yahoo Group forum.

I have not looked at it in a couple of years but when I did I expected the forum to be full of similar stories as in his books. I found NONE! Instead I read airy ramblings about feelings and spirituality. Why no concrete stories from modern students of Murphy to match what Murphy claims in his books? It's as if, while he was writing, there were tons of demonstration stories to share. But after he stopped writing and then passed away somehow nobody else who read his 30 or so books found similar success(as in his books) which they could share in Murphy's own Yahoo forum or anywhere else I can find. I smell a scam. Not just with Murphy but with many other similar authors going back a century to the present day. Somehow there are endless demonstration stories from the authors' "files" while they are alive and writing books but after the books are no longer being written, all subsequent demonstration stories dry up. And in this age of the internet there's no excuse why not one person (besides Ms. Stafford)would not share their success on forums, chats etc. They need not even reveal their true names. After all, the authors' death should not slow down current and future Murphy students' demonstrations, correct? We have his 30+ books to study and make our own demonstations now and forever, right? And yet there are zero stories to be found after the books are no longer being written except for Ms. Stafford.

If Cynthia Staffords' story is honest and her diligent application of Murphy's techniques directly caused the "Universe" to give her that winning lottery ticket then I would happily eat my words. But even her story is suspicious because I have to notice how freakishly rare it is for these techniques to work--if Cynthia's diligent application of those techniques are indeed what "caused" her to end up with a winning lottery ticket. If these techniques worked at anything resembling scientific consistency, then would there not be at least hundreds if not thousands of similar lottery winners as Cynthia Stafford who could directly credit Murphy? Or indeed any of the dozens of similar authors for teaching them the techniques that "got" the "Universe" to line up circumstances that put those winning lottery tickets in their hands? Not just a single, one-in-a-billion winner(Cynthia Stafford) who can directly credit Murphy's teachings?

I'm not being cute, flippant or over-the-top with that last paragraph. If, for the moment, we accept that what Cynthia claimed is precisely true. I.e., the cause of her "marriage" with that winning lottery ticket is absolutely the result of her 24/7 devotion to applying Murphy's techniques, then all I can surmise is that these techniques seem only to work when an "insane" devotion is applied to them. If so, that is fine. After all, if "insane" devotion, for only four months, as Cynthia claimed, was enough to "make" the "Universe" respond and make her financially independent for life, that is a remarkably small price to pay for her millions.

Therefore, we might reasonably conclude that anything less than nearly round-the-clock devotion simply will not be enough to "make" the "Universe" respond. Again, that's fine. As long as we humans know the rules.

But there is another problem. Careful reading of Murphy's stories, in this book and his others, generally, with some exceptions, do not indicate this kind of diligence(however "diligence" is defined?) is required. For the most part, Murphy makes it all sound very easy(i.e., get in a sleepy, drowsy state, feel and visualize 15 minutes 1-3 times per day); persist in not allowing the negative thoughts in(nearly impossible by the way--negative thoughts are far too fast and sneaky to effectively keep out in my experience. And Murphy's answers--endless repetition of affirmations and constant reorientation of one's visuals to the desired goal are flat-out non-effective. It's mentally exhausting to keep that up more than even five minutes much less hours, days and weeks); and in one to three weeks, on average, you get your demonstration. Sometimes several months. My guess is, as long as we are assuming her story is exactly what she claimed, Cynthia's intense efforts(by-the-way, how does one precisely define "intensity" of "effort?") went far beyond anything Murphy mentions in his books. Perhaps she was able to do what I find impossible--really able to keep the negativity out 24/7 for four months straight without a single slip-up. Something virtually nobody else is able to do I suspect. And Murphy does not help us by implying all this is much easier than it really is. Assuming any of this is for real.

That might explain why maybe only one person in a hundred(my pure speculation) ever gets results like Murphy claims in this and his other books--if indeed any of those stories are even true and not just made up to sell books.

Our odds of success are better if we just remember what started and built this country: insane hard work. It's hard to imagine George Washington defeating the worlds' greatest superpower's army (with nothing more than a cowardly congress, mercenary foreign officers and hick-farmers to back him up) by sitting on his behind and "visualizing" and "feeling" his future successful defeat of that superpower's army twenty minutes a day. Then continuing to sit on his rear waiting for the "Universe" to line up the circumstances to defeat that same British army using the "Law of Attraction."

As stupid as that sounds to me, that's what Murphy and all the other "Law of Attraction" cons expect us to believe: Visualizing and feeling success rather than monster 24/7 hard work for decades. Of course, Murphy ridicules massive hard work as(paraphrasing), "The fastest way to the graveyard" in this book "The Power of Your Subconscious Mind." Murphy prefers, instead of monster hard work, sitting on your rear-end and "feeling" until the "Universe" responds. Fine, if it really worked.

If our Founders sat on their butts doing that that there would be no America as anything like we know it today.

Think I'm being over-the-top? In another book by Murphy that I reviewed, "How to Attract Money," Murphy nearly "brags" about how his did absolutely NOTHING to get one of his books, "Magic of Faith" published in France. All he claimed he did was "visualize" that book being published every night for several weeks and during that time happily did NOTHING else. Of course we are told the "Universe" then lined it all up for him and his book was published without him lifting a finger other than signing a contract that appeared out of nowhere in his mailbox.

If only George Washington had known that sitting on his butt and "visualizing" his dreams would have defeated the British army while he rested in the 1700's version of a LA Z BOY and "affirmed" his way to the British defeat. Sure.

By Murphy's logic, all Washington was doing by working insanely hard instead of letting the "Universe" orchestrate the defeat of the British army for him was fast-tracking himself to the graveyard.

The "Law of Attraction" or "The Power of Your Subconscious Mind" in my experience is a con designed to sell books.

It's all nonsense.

When I started this book, I thought this was gonna be good. The title was really interesting and I'll admit it was an impulsive purchase and I didn't know the author was a Minister. While I have no objections to that or to anything that's written in the book, I find this book a little too absurd. I am all for meditating and believing and about the subconscious faith but this feels like a book for the lazy. And TBH, this book just straight out defies the laws of medicine at some point!

I am all for meditating and believing and about the subconscious faith but this feels like a book for the lazy. And TBH, this book just straight out defies the laws of medicine at some point!

The only solution to everything according to this book is to leave it to god or as is so conveniently called "the subconscious mind" in this book. This book feels like the writer's trying to explain religion in a scientific way without actually giving any scientific explanations and/or even defying the laws of medicine at places!

The only solutions to all your problems is praying or "turning it over to your subconscious mind". Got a health issue? Pray and you won't need a doctor. Got a job issue? Pray and you'll get the promotion! I've read a few Cognitive Psychologies to understand how that really works so while the jist of it correct, it is a little misleading. Trying to get people to have faith is fine but being honest is much more important! Don't tell them they have to pray 100 times a day in order to be cured of a disease, tell them they need to come to terms with it, accept it and you've won the half battle! Tell me when they talk about it with self it leads to the acceptance of the disease which further leads to healing and not that it's the subconscious mind that heals when you impress it with a healthy image.

The subconscious mind of the universe is one, wait what!? No! It's your own actions that are caused as a result of the subconscious or maybe even the conscious decisions towards a goal that makes things come to pass and not others'.

While I respect the contents of this book abiding to the faith or beliefs of people and while I don't mean to refute it, I just feel this book is a little absurd and does nothing except make you lazy. Believing is good, it is the stepping stone to progress but that's not just it.

No offense to anyone. ...more

Dr. Joseph Murphy did not get the credit he deserved. I found this book about 6 months ago and it's changed my view of many things and offered a paradigm shift in how I look at and react to daily circumstances and life's challenges. Basically, the messages we give ourselves and/or messages from parents and teachers etc. for good or bad are filtered through our conscious mind and influence our subconscious mind. This often determines whether we will be successful or get stuck listening to the negative tapes in our heads. It really got me to listen to myself on an inner level.
The awareness of intention, beliefs, what we say and feel toward ourselves and others is of the greatest importance and is often the difference between success and failure. I read this book and it was only the beginning. Many of Dr. Murphy's books have been compiled posthumously through Hay House and they are all very helpful and wise in the teachings, including subjects such as being successful and prosperous.
It's a seminal book that has influenced millions of people and Dr. Murphy's teachings are timeless and very positive. Topics such as jealousy, resentment, anger are covered in his many books. Highly recommended! The affirmations and quotes are very helpful on a daily basis. ...more

Nothing I haven't heard of---the new age talk is old---Nothing new!!!
Such a waste of my money and my time! I really perplexes me that this book got 114 reveiws before mine and actually had an average of 4 1/2 stars!!!!! That is just insane!!!! I've read Tony Robbins Unlimited Power, The Giant within, and all the other new age spiritual psychology books such as Dr. Wayne Dyer's books......Every single one of them are so much more informative and so much more packed with practical suggestions "How" you can use affirmations to change your life, not just keep talking your subconcious mind can change your life. Also the style of writing is SO boring to read!!! Maybe because this book is actually written or first published in 1963? No wonder all the thoughts and information is so old!!!

I would've given it a 0 star if there is!

I can tell you in few words what the book is about: you just have to believe something and repeat an idea many times a day. By doing this, you are ordering your subconscious mind to do something for you (for example: repeat to yourself "I will get the job", or "I do not want to smoke"). If you think negative ideas, your subconscious mind will believe they are true and all this negative ideas will actually happen. Well, that's it. The book repeats this same idea over and over. If you still want to buy the book, go ahead.

It is, of course, which is why this stuff does work, just not as spectacularly as Mr. Murphy claims in his homilies of people who thought their way to fabulous wealth or curing a cancer. The better application is to cure a long-standing fear you have or a mental block. You can indeed think your way to a cure of the ways in which your mind is holding you back. But to say you can cure cancer or MS by thinking is -- implicitly -- to blame the desperately ill for their diseases, and that's just cruel. ...more

*Book review*

"The only path by which another person can upset you is through your own thought."
- Joseph Murphy, The power of your subconscious mind

The power of your subconscious mind, as is clear from the title, dwells on the importance of one's consciousness and its power to heal, create and make one's life better. The power of positive affirmations and optimal thinking, and how it can work wonders in practical life where one might find themselves going through hard times on more occasions than *Book review*

The power of your subconscious mind, as is clear from the title, dwells on the importance of one's consciousness and its power to heal, create and make one's life better. The power of positive affirmations and optimal thinking, and how it can work wonders in practical life where one might find themselves going through hard times on more occasions than once.
🌼
The books present various examples of people from different walks of life, who have tapped into the power of the subconscious and found themselves a better life, some who have even cured themselves of diseases.
True, if one puts their heart and soul in a task and overcome a mental block wherein one can see beyond the fear and focus on just reaching the goal, victory is sure to come.
🌼
The writing is easy to read but the examples seemed redundant and sometimes outright unsubstantiated.
I am all for the power of the mind but propagating an idea that a disease can be cured just by constantly thinking about a healthy life over and over again, seems a bit outlandish. Apart from the lack of evidence about the claims that the book makes, I found the underlying idea of cutting off the negative thoughts and focus on the task at hand, really sound.

A must read
I am reluctant to use that term "must read" because it is over used. However, if I only had a handful of books to choose from, this would be one. I have read it several times and will read it several more times in the future.

So much of our life is controlled by our subconscious mind. To be successful, we simply must understand how it works and the influence it has over our lives. This book is very well written, easy to read, full of useful information that if absorbed and followed, will help in every facet of your life.

I have given away many copies and recommended it to many others. I highly recommend it.

As with all classic books, you should read it often. There are so many lessons, you will gain new insights with each reading.

One of the best new thought books
This is the best book about positive thinking that I have ever read. Norman Peale tends to be lightweight. Some of the more metaphysical books tend to get a bit wacky. Murphy sees positive thinking as a form of self hypnosis and self programming so he rarely goes off the deep end into questionable theology. Very well written and well thought out. This is Murphy's best book and is well worth getting. I found myself underlining many passages because of their insight, directness, succinctness. Yes, this book can change your life. I was very engrossed with its ideas for a month or two and see it as a resource to return to whenever I need a new mental outlook. A cognitive approach that is well worth reading.

I enjoyed learning about changing myself from within. The stories were a little too fantastical sometimes.

Main Concepts:
- Change your thoughts, change your destiny
- You become what you think about all day
- You deserve abundance; wealth, success, life, love, health
- Monitor your thoughts; negative thoughts are DAMAGING and hold you back
- Don't expect free lunch; it's only when you GIVE that you receive ten-fold
- One universal mind; praying for others can impact their life just as effectively as I enjoyed learning about changing myself from within. The stories were a little too fantastical sometimes.

Main Concepts:

- Don't expect free lunch; it's only when you GIVE that you receive ten-fold
- One universal mind; praying for others can impact their life just as effectively as if you were praying for yourself

Techniques
- Always frame thoughts in the positive; your subconscious doesn't understand the difference between sarcasm, humor, or "don't miss this shot!" vs. "I will make this shot"
- Quiet your mind before you desire or pray; when your tired immediately before bed, the line between the conscious and subconscious is blurred and is an ideal time
- Always be inputting and reenforcing desires; you must feed the subconscious and it'll take care of the rest ...more

The Power is not in your mind?
Every book on positive thinking like this one and Napoleon Hill's books are all incorrect. There is only one book? on this planet (and any based on it) that really reveals how to change your life. Ever book on positive thinking always quotes "as a man thinking so he is". In this book titled "The Power of Your Subconscious Mind" it quotes it like this-> "as a man thinks in his subconscious mind .." All of them miss quote this line. The correct verse is "As a he thinks in his heart so he is" Proverbs Chapter 23 verse 7. The power to change your life is not in your mind? thinking correct thoughts or positive thoughts is only part of the formula to create change. The truth is "All that you are and all that you have today IS a result of what you've SAID! and BELIEVED! in the past. Your ACTIONS! either put you over, or they keep you under. Take a look at Proverbs Chapter 18: verse 20 and 21. And Romans Chapter 10: verse 8 to 10. Also Mathew Ch 19vs26, Mark Ch 9vs23 and Mark Ch 10vs27.

Genre: Self-improvement
Publication Date: 1962

This book is an inspiration.
It gives a really sensible approach to having faith in oneself and having faith on our subconscious mind.
This book also tells that the Bible is really referring to the powers within us as god's powers.
(This is also a thing pointed out in Dan Brown's: The Lost Symbol.)
It offers a mild spiritual journey.
Highly recommended.
