    There exists in Nature a Dynamic Mental Principle - a MIND-POWER - PERVADING ALL SPACE - IMMANENT IN ALL THINGS - MANIFESTING IN AN INFINITE VARIETY OF FORMS, DEGREES, AND PHASES.

    The greatest struggle is at the beginning of the practice or formation of a new will-habit. Here one has to fight with all his might - but the first battle well won, the after-fights moderate and finally become mere skirmishes. Hence it behooves one to gird on his armor firmly and grasp his sword with strength at this first fight

    learn to know that the individual is you, and you are the individual and that the personality is merely something that "belongs to you." When you have reached this stage you will have called to your hand the forces of the great Mind-Power and will indeed have a right to call yourself "positive" and an "active center of power" in the great Ocean of Mind-Power. And all this will have been brought about by this new plan of "Says I to myself, says I." Is it not "worth while?" Then start in to "make yourself over as you will!"

    old way, you remember, was to claim to yourself, "I am fearless," etc. Now my new way of "treating" yourself is to imagine that you are "treating" some other person for the same trouble. Sit down and give a regular treatment. Imagine yourself as sitting before your personality - the central mind giving a treatment to the "John Smith" part of you - the individual "treating" the personality. The individual (that's you) says to the personality of "John Smith": "Here, John Smith, you must brace up and do better. You are fearless, fearless, fearless! I tell you, you are fearless! You are courageous, and brave, and bold! You are confident and self-reliant! You fear nothing! You are filled with strong, positive Mind-Power, and you are going to manifest it - you are going to grow more and more positive every day! You are positive this minute-do you bear me! Positive this very minute! You are positive, fearless, confident and self-reliant right now, and you will grow more and more so every day. Remember now, you are positive, positive, positive - fearless, fearless, fearless!" etc., etc., etc.

    You will find that by this plan you will be able to fairly pour in the positive suggestions to "the John Smith part of you," and the latter will take them with the same effect as if there were two persons instead of one. And there are two persons, according to the occult teachings - the individual and the personality. This plan will afford a welcome variation to the monotonous "I am this and I am that" methods which have caused so many once-ardent followers of the "New Thought" to throw up the whole matter in disgust. This wholesale "I am this and that" business has tired many a good soul who thereby let go just when in sight of attainment. To such and to all others I would say: "Try this new plan!" Learn to actually "treat yourself" by this method and you will he surprised at the rapid progress you will make as compared with the old plan. But don't forget to impress upon the "John Smith" part of you that he must hold the mental image or visualization; and that he must start right in to act out the part! Don't let him get away from this - insist upon it - cross-examine him about it before each treatment and hammer it into him hard. For as our colored brother would say. "He sure needs 'em all" to carry him through.

    You will see in the previous chapter, entitled "Healing Methods," (in that part devoted to self-healing) I tell you to imagine yourself as "John Smith," or whatever your name may be - that is, as a separate person, and then to "treat" him as such - just as you would a patient. "Well, this plan also works admirably in cases of character building by auto-suggestion. While the "I am," etc., plan is good as a bracer, and when going into action, still this last mentioned plan of mine operates far better when it comes down to steady "treatment" of oneself for mental failings; weaknesses and character-building. Just try both plans yourself and see if I am not right - but practice my plan a little until you acquire the "knack" before finally deciding the matter. Here is how it works in practice.

    But here I am going to suggest a little variation along the lines of auto-suggestion, which I have found to act admirably in this class of cases. The ordinary auto-suggestion, or affirmation works along these lines, viz., one affirms or suggests to himself something like this: "I am fearless - I fear nothing - I am courageous - I am filled with confidence," etc., etc. Now this in flue - no one who knows anything about the subject will dispute the fact that a man "holding the thought" that "I am fearless," will be filled with courage, and will manifest the qualities that he is claiming for himself. It is the old tried and oft-taught plan of affirmation or auto-suggestion that has worked wonders for so many people. And I positively advise you to follow this plan of "holding the thought," and making the affirmations or autosuggestions in the first person, when you are "going into action." As a "bracer" it is unexcelled. But there is something else not so old - and here it is.

    Many a person has changed his whole physical and mental condition by a careful, persistent course of auto-suggestion. Of course, if one combines the mental image, or visualization process with the autosuggestion, he will obtain a doubly efficacious result. And, if, in addition to these two, he will practice acting out the part along physical lines, he will reap a ten-fold harvest of results. These three forms combined, employed and persisted in, will work miracles in any one. For instance, if one suffers from fear in meeting other persons - an abnormal timidity or bashfulness, commonly called "self-consciousness" - the first thing for him to do, is to brace himself with constant affirmations or auto-suggestions of "fearlessness"; then he

    There is a dual aspect of mind which enables one to play two parts at the same time, viz., (1) the part of teacher or master, and (2) the part of scholar or pupil. One
