Product Description

A believer of the Religious Science movement, a spiritual, philosophical and metaphysical religious movement within the New Thought movement, Joseph Murphy was a doctor of psychology who wrote extensively about the power of the subconscious mind. In an introduction to his most popular book on the subject, "The Power of Your Subconscious Mind", he writes "I have endeavored to explain the great fundamental truths of your mind in the simplest language possible. I believe that it is perfectly possible to explain the basic, foundational, and fundamental laws of life and of your mind in ordinary everyday language. You will find that the language of this book is that used in your daily papers, current periodicals, in your business offices, in your home, and in the daily workshop. I urge you to study this book and apply the techniques outlined therein; and as you do, I feel absolutely convinced that you will lay hold of a miracle-working power that will lift you up from confusion, misery, melancholy, and failure, and guide you to your true place, solve your difficulties, sever you from emotional and physical bondage, and place you on the royal road to freedom, happiness, and peace of mind. This miracle-working power of your subconscious mind can heal you of your sickness; make you vital and strong again. In learning how to use your inner powers, you will open the prison door of fear and enter into a life described by Paul as the glorious liberty of the sons of God."

Thank you.
Awful reviews. Basically think positive and your lameness/blindness/cancer could be cured. Yeah right. No thanks.
Its 4 and a half stars most reviews are positive. People blindly look at negative reviews. Perspective I guess.
Great book thanks
Great on YouTube just play and listen

I'd recommend Stoicism instead.

I don't know if this espouses wishing and thinking of obtaining things to obtain them, like The Secret and the law of attraction, but if it does it's pseudoscience and dangerous.

I'd argue it's much better to realise that most things are either completely or partly out of your control. And desiring things to be a certain way can be immoral, wrong, and also cause yourself suffering. For example wanting people to like you.
Instead act with positive intent, based on your values, to do good. People may like you as a consequence, some may not. It's not up to you. But trying to manifest that through your subconscious etc. will hurt you when it doesn't happen, sets you up for failure, and isn't right - because how people feel is up to them, not you.

The same with wealth and "success".

Edit: Yep, he was a New Thought minister - The Law of attraction is part of New Thought.

They believe among other things that:
"All disease is mental in origin."

And as per a review in the first three pages there is

"Over forty-two years ago i resolved a malignancy - in medical terminology it was called a sarcoma - by using the healing power of my subconscious mind..."

So basically, cure cancer with your thoughts alone.

Dangerous BS.

Been doing this a long time. Most books are 4.5 average. Self published drivel is nearer 5.0! Amazon average review score is worthless. Read the comments of reviews that are longer than a paragraph. You should also read between the lines of the 5 star reviews. Sure, this might be for some. But most will be hugely disappointed.

I appreciate a lot of the books you've posted, the educational ones.

I don't know if you're into New Thought or what this author espouses but by plenty of objective measures it's dangerous and arguably immoral too.

It can make people feel guilty that they are ill because of their thoughts, which will in turn actually help make any illness worse. It can also make people believe that they don't need to seek actual proven treatment that works.

Basically, if someone has a genetic disease, completely out of their control, the beliefs held by this author and those in New Thought is that if they thought positively it wouldn't exist. Placing the blame on the sufferer.

That's abhorrent.

As I've said I've read a lot of the positive ones as well. A lot are from India! Hmmm... paid for? LOL!

You don't have to believe me. Just read the book from the "Look Inside" feature. You'll see...

There's actually a small thread of truth to causing yourself illness. Dr. John Sarno did an amazing book on a condition he calls TMS, in which the body, through manipulation of the autonomic immune system, can mimic symptoms of almost any disease so as to occupy a persons mind and prevent them from pondering on emotional trauma. Sarno strongly recommends not using his methods in place of your doctors advice and instead using his methods as complimentary.

I've actually suffered with TMS issues (horrible back pains, dry eyes syndrome, RSI) and have effectively eliminated them using Sarno's methods.

Anyway the point of my response is that I think these "miracle cures" shown through the new age movement are not a "cure" of a physical disease, but simply a repealing of TMS. The cure for both is to resume living your life fully as if the "disease" weren't there.

Sure, some symptoms can be psychosomatic.

However as you point out, when they aren't, positive thinking won't cure it.

Positive thinking can support recovery sometimes, and lesson symptoms.

But ironically, the idea of "empowering" the individual, to say everything is up to them and their will, is actually far from empowering, it can be really harmful - as it unfairly and incorrectly places the responsibility on them - when it's actually outside of their control.

Thinking positively won't cure Type 1 diabetes, and believing that it can and then not curing it through thought could make that person feel guilty and depressed, worsening their mental and physical health.

Fundamentally the underlying philosophy seems incredibly ecogentric. We're insigificant, nearly everything isn't up to us. That's liberating. Thinking everything is just up to our own positive thoughts is the opposite, it's a trap.

You have a great point but in my case the empowerment helped me substantially. I was bordering on wanting to end it all when I discovered the book and It took over a year of me getting deep into this stuff before I managed to eliminate my symptoms, when I didn't see results I didn't get depressed I kept going knowing it will happen eventually. It was a blind faith, but it kept me alive and allowed me to keep on living with a hope.

Joseph Murphy's book is very humble compared to many modern LOA/LOB/New Age preachers all the information is right in his own book.

Preachers these days keep things very vague, with just enough misunderstanding as to push their other books, meditation guides, seminars, etc onto people who feel they aren't getting results fast enough. I've known people waste thousands of dollars going in a loop with this stuff. Now that is an actual trap.
