Self Mastery Through Conscious Autosuggestion

Suggestion, or rather Autosuggestion, is quite a new subject, and yet

at the same time it is as old as the world.

It is new in the sense that until now it has been wrongly studied and

in consequence wrongly understood; it is old because it dates from

the appearance of man on the earth. In fact autosuggestion is an

instrument that we possess at birth, and in this instrument, or rather

in this force, reside
a marvelous and incalculable power, which

according to circumstances produces the best or the worst results.

Knowledge of this force is useful to each one of us, but it is

peculiarly indispensable to doctors, magistrates, lawyers, and to

those engaged in the work of education.

By knowing how to practise it consciously it is possible in the

first place to avoid provoking in others bad autosuggestions which

may have disastrous consequences, and secondly, consciously to

provoke good ones instead, thus bringing physical health to the sick,

and moral health to the neurotic and the erring, the unconscious

victims of anterior autosuggestions, and to guide into the right path

those who had a tendency to take the wrong one.
