Digital Book format: PDF (Adobe DRM)
Here are the classic texts on the principles and practices of suggestion and auto-suggestion. There are full discussions of the nature of the subconscious and conscious mind, the characteristics and power of thought, the function of imagination and the correct use of will power. We are shown how these affect our lives without our desire or knowledge and how to begin to change these effects with the aid of self-suggestion. There is a complete outline of the methods and procedures considered most effective, and they are practical, easily understood and with consistent effort easily applied. These techniques were originally perfected to assist in curing mental and physical disorders, and the book contains a section of verified case histories and the successes accompanying them. These methods are also shown to be applicable to the education of adults and children and as aids in increasing self-awareness. Coué maintained that we all have the power to change, heal ourselves and remain healthy, if only we care to use it. Here is a way. Emile Coué always maintained that he had no special powers, no 'magnetic fluid', and that he never healed anyone in his life. Yet thousands flocked to his free clinic at Nancy, in the northeast of France, and went away cured, partly cured, or at the very least comforted and greatly strengthened. How was it done? Coué would answer, with his transparent honesty: by the patient himself. The two texts of this book, one by Coué with some of his cases and enthusiastic tributes, and the other by an Englishman, C. Harry Brooks, with an attractive description of the Nancy clinic, give an account of Coué's method, the theory of autosuggestion behind it, and how we all possess the power to heal and keep healthy, if we only care to use it. To each of us Coué would say: do it yourself.
