Chapter 10 from Napoleon Hill’s Think & Grow Rich is the Mystery of Sex Transmutation
What does that mean? Well.. I went with a video blog this week to address the topic. It’s actually surprising that a book published in the 1930s would have a chapter dedicated to such a “taboo” topic.
Here’s a couple of quotes from this chapter:
..the scientific inventor, or “genius,” begins an invention by organizing and combining the known ideas or principles accumulated through experience, through the synthetic faculty (the reasoning faculty). If he finds this accumulated knowledge to be insufficient for the completion of his invention, he then draws upon the sources of knowledge available to him through his creative faculty. The method by which he does this varies with the individual, but this is the sum and substance of his procedure:
1. He stimulates his mind os that it vibrates on a higher-than-average plane, using one or more of the ten mind stimulants or some other stimulant of his choice.
2. He concentrates upon the known factors (the finished part) of his invention, and creates in his mind a perfect picture of unknown factors ( the unfinished part) of the invention. He holds this picture in mind until it has been taken over by the subconscious mind, then relaxes by clearing his mind of all through, and waits for his answer to “flash” into his mind.
-Napoleon Hill, Think & Grow Rich
Just for a handy written reference, the 10 things that can stimulate higher thought vibrations are:
The desire for sex expression.
A burning desire for fame, power, or financial gain.
Friendship between either those of the same sex or those of the opposite sex.
A Master Mind alliance based upon the harmony of two or more people who ally themselves for spiritual or temporal advancement.
Narcotics and alcohol.
Major take-aways from this chapter would be ..
HARNESS YOUR SEXUAL ENERGY FOR CREATIVE GENIUS
And now- personal self-help update:
The property I had under contract a while ago didn’t close. Meaning, the deal fell through. However! I was able to secure a part time- work from home job that pays me enough to cover my bills, and give me the time I need to devote to financial freedom and spiritual growth.
I came across a picture today that aligns with spiritual growth:
Something that I struggled a lot with at my last job, was knowing I was lying to people 😦 They had us tip toe around topics with customers, but in the end I knew the answer they wanted but couldn’t tell them. Yes, lots of people work in jobs that bend their morals, but it’s all made up.
EVERYTHING IS MADE UP.
It is simple to be happy, and that’s what my goal. The self-imposed need to be at a job I disagreed with was made up. So I quit. Was it worth it? OH YEAHHHH.
Until next time!
Love life 😉
