The conditions you are experiencing in your life now are the contents in your subconscious mind pushed out.
If you could turn your subconscious mind inside out, what do you get? You get reflections that matches your current conditions. Man lives in his subconscious mind, which is his Subjective Reality.
If a man’s subconscious mind believes in Lack, he can only perceive and experience Lack in his outer world. If he is experiencing abundance and wealth, it means his subconscious thoughts are those of abundance and wealth at the moment. The study of New Thought and Metaphysics revealed to us that we can change our conditions by changing our powerful subconscious mind.
The subconscious is our Inner World. Our Outer World is a projection that matches our Internal World. Our physical actions to change our External World are futile, unless we first change our Inner World. Right actions that produce results are actually inspired subconsciously.
The subconscious is power, the conscious is direction. In ancient times, the subconscious is called The Female Aspect, while the conscious is The Male Aspect. The female appears weak, but inwardly she is enduring and powerful. She has the power of influence over the actions of men. The female symbol is water – soft, adapting to its surrounding, yet the ocean and rivers are powerful forces that can submerge the entire world.
The male appears strong, but inwardly he is quick to change his mind and direction. The male symbol is Fire. The male must make his own decision and then slowly persuade and influence the woman into a decision. Likewise, the Conscious Mind must make a new decision to create new thoughts, in order to influence the Subconscious to change. It is said, the male’s drive for power and success is so that he can please the female. The male symbol is fire. Fire is quick to start and spread, but can also be wiped out quickly, especially by water. Fire can heat up water, but it takes persistence and time. Likewise, to influence our subconscious is like the male trying to win over the female. He must do so by gentle persuasion, consistency and persistence. A man changes his decision quickly, but when a woman is finally influenced, she is slow to change her mind.
There are plenty of symbology for the subconscious mind. The biblical flood is a symbology of the flood of facts. The subconscious (female aspect) which symbol is water, has the power to flood your world with facts. We are submerged by facts (which we call “conditions” or “reality”) once it is set in motion. Once you are in the flood, you can only take inventory of your thoughts, keep the good ones alive in a place with 3 decks (the Ark). The 3 decks are the Spiritual, Psychological and Physical of our Being. Once the flood subsides, you are then able to create your world anew.

Your level of wealth all depends on your subconscious thoughts about money. Why are some rich and others poor? Everyone needs money to live. Money is a symbol of material power in this world. Money is not the be-all and end-all of life, but with money comes freedom, choice, time, quality and power in the physical world. Without money we wouldn’t be able to feed ourselves or put a roof over our heads!
There are several things you do that influence your subconscious mind about the topic of money.
Firstly, when you are spending money to buy something, do you feel positive emotions such as gratitude, joy, power, freedom of choice, or do you feel emotions of fear, worry, anxiety, dissatisfaction? Whether you are in the positive emotion category or the negative emotion side will determine your current attraction of money. The greatest repellent of wealth is the thought and emotion of fear. That’s right, fear man’s greatest obstacle to attracting wealth.
Secondly, when some people buy something such as a jacket, will go for the cheapest one. Even if they preferred a more expensive one, they find themselves always going for the cheapest clothing. They find themselves going into the Reject Shop, or the “$2 Shop” most of the time. Believe it or not, this act of always going for cheap sends an indirect message to the subconscious mind. The impression the subconscious is getting is “I can’t afford anything dearer than cheap”. And think, so you must manifest. The subconscious will adjust their financial situation to match according what they believe.
I say step out of your consciousness of lack and fear. Start buying something you really love even if it is a little more expensive, and it should be money spent satisfactorily and with pleasure. Buy something for yourself that tells your subconscious mind “I am worth it. I reward myself. There is abundance in the universe. I’m attracting more money to flow in as I enjoy buying this”. Do you feel how much better and happier this statement makes you feel when you spend money?
Man’s wealth is a mental thing. If you have $20,000 cash in the bank, and suppose you keep telling yourself “I can’t afford this” and “I will buy the cheapest eventhough I like that dearer item”. Believe it or not, if you keep thinking in terms of lack, your subconscious mind will arrange your condition so that even if you have $20,000, it will go out quickly from large unforseen bills, obligations or loss. To say it bluntly, if you are tight, your subconscious will make sure you are right about being tight!
The illustrations above show you why subconscious impressions are so vital to your wealth. Whether you attract or repel money depends on one thing, your subconscious barometer of wealth.
Do you think in terms of Abundance or Lack? Possession or Loss? Right Supply or Competition? These are just 3 pairs of mindsets which you must select carefully in order to manifest wealth or anything you want. Which mindset you choose will determine your current point of attraction of money.

The great frontier is not space, it is our mind. Mind is everywhere in the universe, even in space. Mind exists even outside of our space-time continuum. In mind, space and time is not linear. There is no linear progression of time because your mind can imagine the past, present and future as you choose. The reality of time is this eternal now. You have access to all time and space beyond your physical.
There is a great network of mind, which I call the Universal Mind. This Mind is the cumulation of all the individual minds that exist. We can make contact with this Mind with meditation and mind training, and extract information from it. The information comes as a pure ‘knowing’. Sometimes you have a hunch that something is happening, you don’t know why or how you know it, you just knew. This is an example of connection to the Universal Mind. In reality, we are all part of the Universal Mind. We are not separate from it. But through our individuality, we perceive and think in terms of separation. We think in terms of “you and I”. To connect with Universal Mind, we need to think in terms of inclusion – Oneness.
Here’s a prose I read today. It came from a Buddhist author.
You are me and I am you.
It is obvious that we are inter-are.
You cultivate the flower in
yourself so that I will be beautiful.
I transform the garbage in myself so
that you do not have to suffer.
I support you you support me.
I am here to bring you peace
you are here to bring me joy. - Thich Naht Hanh
To me it is magnificent in the sense that it reflects the understanding of the Law of Oneness. In my book Creating Your Personal Reality – Creative Principles For Manifesting and Fulfilling Your Dreams I covered a chapter on the principle of Oneness. Everyone you know is part of your Mind. They exist in you, and your thoughts about them can affect and influence them. To bless and pray for others is sending them positive thoughts. Good thoughts can bless and influence.
Change happens when we move from the old to the new. You cannot create new experiences with the same old consciousness and thoughts that you have. You simply can’t, because it defies mental and spiritual laws. Old thoughts will reproduce the same results. Every thought manifests results that are like itself.
To create a radical new change in your life, you must be willing to burn your bridges behind you in your past, and move forward building new bridges. The old consciousness must be starved and die, so that the new can take place without being neutralized.
“And have put on the new man, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of him that created him:”
The new man is an ancient metaphor for new consciousness. A new man is someone who possesses an entirely different thoughts and mindset, a different consciousness from the old man. It stresses that the new man is renewed in “knowledge” , that is, understanding or consciousness. And our consciousness creates. Just like God’s consciousness is creative, so is ours.
In my book Creating Your Personal Reality, I listed 10 creative mindsets that will create new positive experiences in your life. These are the 10 mindsets that will help you become a successful deliberate creator to manifest what you want in your life. By deliberately using these 10 mindsets, you are neutralizing all the root negative beliefs.
Are there old negative and limiting thoughts and beliefs that you need to get rid of from your consciousness? Be assured that once you have neutralized them and replace them with new thoughts, your experience and circumstances will change quickly. It is our limiting beliefs that is holding us in conditions that we do not like. And we have to change them.
The bridges that we talk about are mental. If you revisit the old bridges you return to the old states. So burn the old bridges, abandon them, and build new bridges that will bring you to your new promised land.
There is a secret technique for mental influence. Not many people in this world know how to use it. ” So how does it work?”, you may ask. You can think a thought and the other person would be influenced by it and act according to it.
For example, I wanted to release myself from a rental lease contract this month. But according to the contract I had signed, I was bound by the lease conditions until the lease expires in 6 months. According to the lease, if the tenant breaks the lease, he or she is liable to pay up to 6 weeks of rent to the Owner. It was only 3 days after moving in, and I wanted to terminate the lease because the apartment had a pest problem.
And not only that, I wanted to be released from the contract without any penalties financially. I asked the agent and he said it was impossible for me to break the lease without paying a penalty as stated in the contract. I then contacted the Landlord and told him the situation, but he too asked me to forfeit my prepaid rent if I want to break the lease.
But before I slept, I sent the Landlord a suggestion to allow me to break the lease without any penalties. The next morning, he called me and said he was allowing me to break the lease without any penalties. His only condition was that I have to stay in the apartment until he finds a new tenant to replace me. I accepted his offer, as he suggested that it shouldn’t take too long for the agent to find someone as a replacement.
But 2 days later, with no news from the agent, I decided I would leave the place at the end of the week on a Sunday. I created a scene of me telling him that I wanted to leave on Sunday disregarding whether he finds someone else or not. The next day, which is today, he sent me an email telling me exactly what I wanted him to say. He said the agent has reported to him that it may take a few weeks to find another tenant, and the landlord thought to himself it would be fair for me to leave this weekend on Sunday (exactly the day that I mentally influenced him). There will be no penalties, no forfeiting of rent. Nothing. He was willing to let me walk free. I didn’t tell him in the Outer Reality, but he got the message that I told him in the Inner Reality.
In my book Creating Your Personal Reality, I described this method in the Chapter called “Oneness”. There is no separation in Mind. Your subconscious mind is interlinked with the subconscious mind of everyone in this world.
In another instance back in 2005, I used this method to mentally influence a tenant of mine. I posted an advertisement to rent out a spare room in my apartment and a university student applied for it. He came for an inspection and said he liked the apartment very much. I was asking for $215 per week, but he bargained for $200, as he offered to share the utility bills with me. I reluctantly agreed, because I wanted to avoid vacancies. We agreed to sign a lease within a few days after I had typed up the lease and for him to prepare a deposit and rent payment.
Within that period, I used the same method to mentally influence him that he should pay $215 instead of $200. I didn’t know I was mentally influencing him. but I had this strong intent to tell him that. In fact, I made up my mind to re-negotiate with him the next time I meet him to sign the lease. On that evening, I met him in the city. The first words that came out from his mouth were “Charlie, remember I said I wanted to pay $200? Do you mind if I pay you $215 instead?”
Amazed by his statement, I asked him what changed his mind? For I hadn’t said a single word about that.
He said, “I spoke with my mum over the phone, and she told me it’s better for me to pay you what you asked for, to have the utility bills included in the rent”. With that, he willingly signed the contract which I typed up and I gave him the keys.
When you do mental influence correctly and if the other person catches the thoughts you are sending them, they will comply accordingly. Not only that, they will think it is their own idea.
Every thought that you think is casting a spell on those around you. If you learn the right technique to do it deliberately, you can control this faculty of mind.
We believe certain things, think along a certain line, and the thought gets reinforced and emotionalized, and boom we find ourselves in a state.
Outer events change to reflect the state of consciousness.
Each state is just like a room. It is a room without a doorway. We cannot consciously determine HOW our goal will come to pass. We in our conscious logical level do not know how. The ways and means are beyond us. I only know that if you want to be in a state, you have to persist in imagining the state, doing your mental work to align yourself emotionally and psychologically with it, then very soon you will find yourself in a state.
Symbolically, you are in a room, but you did not plan exactly how you entered the room. But you find yourself in a room, and how you got in, you cannot believe it. It could have happened with the most amazing turn of everyday events, it seemed almost natural. But it was miraculous. The past you could never have planned each step that led you into the room. But you now find yourself surrounded by the walls of the room.
For example, last year when I used a technique of imagining that I was driving the car that I always wanted to have, within 1 week things unfold for me to be in possession of such a car. I did not plan each step leading to it. I imagined it, and I was carried along in a flow of events that led me to it. Then I found myself surrounded by the facts that proclaim I have my dream car now.
To learn how you can get yourself into a state that you want, check out my Secret Techniques For Manifesting With Imagination. You will learn various advanced techniques that will put you into a state. If you do these techniques properly and diligently, you will soon find yourself surrounded by the reality of your goal, as fact.
There are a few things you can do each day to improve your control of your mind. It will help you improve your ability to concentrate. Besides that, it will also put you in a state of wellbeing for you to think good thoughts and influence your subconscious mind to manifest your goals.
1. Avoid caffeine. Both coffee and tea puts caffeine into your body. So you think caffeine will give you a mental and physical ‘boost’ and make you more awake. Do you know why? According to Dr Robert Young a microbiologist who is an expert of the blood, he says our body identifies caffeine as a poison in our bloodstream. It then wakes up the immune system to work faster to get rid of the caffeine from our bloodstream. When our immune system wakes up and works on red alert mode, we feel the rush which we think is giving us a boost.
But in fact, caffeine tends to create hypertension, hyperactivity and most importantly it creates restlessness. If you are not used to taking caffeine, and you drink a cup of coffee right before bedtime, you will know what I mean. It makes the conscious mind restless and reduces concentration. And concentration and a state of calm are they keys to influencing your subconscious mind.
2. Build Up And Accumulate A High Level Of Life Energy. When your energy is low, you are vibrating at a lower frequency that aligns you with negative thoughts and emotions. Think of someone who is happy and optimistic, do they have a high or low level of energy? Think of someone who is depressed and pessimistic, do they have high or low energy?
3. Reduce stress in your daily life. I think we all know by now that stress is never good for our mental and physical health. Stress drains away a huge amount of mental and physical energy that we could instead use for our manifesting work. The brain needs a certain level of energy reserve to be able to think clearly. Depression is often a symptom of prolonged mental or physical stress, ie, the symptom of low energy reserve.
4. Get adequate sleep each night. Sleep deprivation can diminish your ability to think clearly. If you lose 2 hours of sleep, you will need more than 2 hours more sleep the next day to make up for it. Lack of sleep causes sluggishness of thought and physiology.
5. Spend quiet time meditating or doing ‘mental work’. Practising meditation and doing mental work especially at night before you go to bed is the best habit you can have to improve your manifesting skills. When the brain is working on Beta mode, we are in a state of normal waking hour thinking. In Beta, our Conscious Mind is very active and we create a lot of ‘mental noise’. We need to train ourselves to go into another state of mind in order to do mental work for manifesting. We can either go to Alpha or Delta. In my ebook “Secrets Techniques Of Manifesting And Creating With Imagination”, I teach a very simple technique you can train daily to go into Alpha state of mind. If you have read my books, you will notice that I have used the Alpha state to help me achieve many of my goals and desires in the past.
The difference between ordinary state of Beta versus Alpha is this. For example, you can think a positive thought or give an instruction to your subconscious mind 20 times in Beta, and it will not compare to giving that same instruction to your subconscious mind JUST ONCE in Alpha.
If you would like to learn to go into a deeper state than Alpha, you can learn to go into Delta, which is even more powerful. I have been training myself to go into Delta state by using a very powerful training program which I highly recommend to anyone who wishes to improve their manifesting skills. You can learn more about it here : Training In Delta State Of Mind.
There you have it, these are the 5 easy things you can do to improve your mind and manifesting skills. There are of course others, but for today’s short blog article, I think these 5 will ge enough to get you started. If you wish to learn specific mental techniques, check out my books which will teach you the basic and advanced techniques to manifest using your mind and imagination.
The Conscious Mind plays an important part in manifesting and creation. The main function of the Conscious Mind is to make decision and choices. It has the power of selection. We use our conscious mind to determine what we think about and also shape the content of our imagination. Whatever you do with your Conscious Mind, will then form a pattern in your subconscious mind. You are making an imprint on your subconscious. Thus, it is important that the Conscious Mind make wise decisions in order to produce beneficial results.
The Conscious Mind is the master of the Subconscious Mind. The subconscious acts as a manager or worker to perform the work necessary to achieve goals set by the Conscious Mind. But nonetheless, both the conscious and subconscious must work as a team to produce the right results. There is in reality only one mind, and Conscious and Subconscious are different faculties or functions of the one mind. we make the distinction of conscious or subconscious with the intent to better understand each faculty.
It is incredible, but it is true. I will relate to you another instance how imagination is used to manifest what you want. Early last week, I was thinking about buying my dream car, a Mercedes C class. I imagined I was driving it, and used the speed up method as I described in my book. Frankly its been my dream car for years, but I didn’t use my mind power to attract one to me. I didn’t know how I was going to afford one, as everytime I thought about the car in the past, I would tell myself it’s out of my price range. But here I was, imagining I have the car and that it was mine. Then I forgot all about it.
Come Saturday, I was at lunch with my sister and mum, and I suddenly had this idea we should go check out the Mercedes Benz showroom. I had no intention to really buy one, because I didn’t have all the funds. I just wanted to admire the cars in the showroom.
While looking at different cars in the showroom, the salesperson came to talk about the features of the car. We were looking at the CLC, which is a sports coupe version of the C-class. As I was sitting in it, she suddenly said that all the CLC demo cars were on special promotion, and this is the final week of the promotion. She named a figure and it was indeed surprisingly low priced for a luxury car. They were discounting the normal price by 25%. It would include the car, the registration, the stamp duty and also the first year’s insurance. This made the car within my affordability range!
So I asked if they had silver or grey colour, and the salesperson said no. She said over the past 2 weekends these have been selling like hot cakes. They have sold 20 of them, and the only ones left were 2 black ones with sunroof, and a grey one without a sun roof. I was there for a long time, considering how I liked grey or silver with a sunroof, but all they had were black with sunroof. As their office was closing, I booked a black one with sunroof as it was the 2nd last one available, thinking actually black didn’t look too bad after all. Well they said the car will arrive next week. It will be a new car, but they will sell it at the same price as the demo. This new batch was meant to be demo cars, but because I book them before they arrive, I get them as brand new.
Then last night, as I was thinking about my new car, I deliberately imagined it was a silver one, instead of black.
This morning, guess what happened?! As I was getting dressed to go to work, I received a sms from the salesperson. She said, after this morning’s meeting with her team, she now has one last silver CLCs with sunroof. I called her immediately to ask, and she said someone who booked a silver CLC last week from the same batch that hasn’t arrived, now they wanted to get a black one instead. Would I take it? It is the last silver one. I said yes, definitely. Now I have my dream car, at affordable price (25% discount),with a sun roof, brand new instead of demo, and yes it is silver!
When you set your mind to use imagination to manifest, all things will conspire to help you get what you want.
If you’d like to learn how to manifest like that by using your imagination, you can learn all the advanced techniques I use from my book Secret Techniques Of Manifesting And Creating With Imagination.
Just browsing through my diary and I recalled this incident. In 2005 when I moved to Sydney for work, I got the lease to my first rental apartment with 2 rooms, which I attracted by using my imagination (the story of how I got it was revealed in an earlier blog entry). I tried to rent out the 2nd room to reduce the amount of rent I was paying. And I wanted to rent the room for $215 per week. I determined the qualities of the type of tenant I wanted. I wanted to have someone clean, honest, quiet, preferably a student and a non-smoker. The technique I used was one of a method I now teach in my book ‘Secret Techniques For Manifesting’.
Within a few days, a young male international student called me, expressing interest to inspect the apartment. That night he came and he was the type of person that fitted my criteria for a good tenant. But as he was about to leave he began to negotiate the rent. He said he only wanted to spend $200 on rent each week, and asked that we split the utility bills. He was a very good negotiator and as I didn’t want to lose such a good prospective tenant, I reluctantly agreed. We agreed to sign the contract and for him to get the keys from me on a Thursday. It was then a Monday.
After he left, I reconsidered it and thought $200 per week was a bit low, considering I owned all the furniture in the apartment, and I had paid a lot of money on the security bond to the agent to secure the lease. I did more mental work over the next 2 days.
On Thursday, I decided I should renegotiate with him when I meet him again that night, to try to get the original rent I advertised for.
But something amazing happened. I met him on the main street to pass him the keys and to collect his deposit money (he was scheduled to move in on that Saturday). I was all ready to renegotiate the rent with him. But before I could open my mouth to get to the topic, he said,
“Charlie, I have something I want to tell you. I want to pay you $215 rent that you asked for.”
I was stunned by his statement, and I was very curious why he changed his mind. I asked him why.
He continued, “I spoke with my mum yesterday on the phone about renting this room, and she told me to pay you the rent you originally asked for, to include the utility bills in the rent. Is this ok? “
I didn’t even have to open my mouth to renegotiate at all. My subconscious mind synchronized the result, by getting his mum to tell him what I was mentally telling him.
