General Overview of The Book

The Power Of Your Subconscious Mind, the book’s publication, dates back to the year 1963 and has been on the list of best sellers very frequently. This book has made an exceptional attempt to bind the spiritual world with the modern world of science.

The Power Of Your Subconscious Mind by Dr. Joseph Murphy puts forward the notion that we have two minds- the conscious mind, which is responsible for the rational activities, and the subconscious mind, accountable for the thought process.

The subconscious mind has also been called the “mind” of the mind.

Author Overview- Dr. Joseph Murphy

Dr. Joseph Murphy was born in Ireland- a country majorly dominated by catholic beliefs. Although he was in pursuit to be an ordained minister in the church himself as he grew into his late teens, his beliefs and thoughts started questioning his actions.

He wanted to grow into something bigger, which was not possible in a place that Catholicism dominated. So, he left for America and eventually traveled almost across the globe, gaining experiences along the way.

He has also spent a considerable amount of time in India with Hindu saints, understanding their ideologies and then establishing a church in America based on those beliefs.

Basic Summary of The Book

This book combines and mixes the all-time respected (sometimes challenged) spiritual beliefs with on-peak scientific research. In this book, the author has explained working of your subconscious mind and the impacts (both good and bad) that it can have on the lifestyle.

This book explains how the subconscious mind affects everything we do daily without even knowing it. It also explains how we can control, take charge, train our subconscious mind, and improve the quality of life we live in.

The book describes in-depth on how you can use your subconscious mind and flip your life around, what to feed your mind, the thoughts and belief systems, and so many more things.

What do I think of “The Power Of Your Subconscious Mind”?

Before going any further one thing that actually really need to be said about this book is that-

Read this book just thinking that everything written in here is true because there really are going to be things written which will challenge your beliefs and ideologies pretty hardly. Why I am asking you to read that way is to protect your own peace of mind.

This book to me was, in a word, “interesting.” The book has so many new things to say to me that I liked on a personal level.

Our subconscious mind has a lot more to do with our daily chores than we think. We can use it to achieve more incredible things in our life. The bottom line is just thinking about an idea where it becomes a particular belief- and the rest will follow.

This book is excellent to seek positivity from- sort of like therapy but with yourself (at least to me).

What to take away from The Power Of Your Subconscious Mind?

A lot of things actually,

Although there may or may not be sections on the book that you will not like, but there is a lot to learn too.

The law of attraction attracts to you everything you need, according to the nature of your thought life. Your environment and financial condition are the perfect reflection of your habitual thinking. Thought rules the world.

Joseph Murphy

Your subconscious never sleeps. It is always on the job. It controls all your vital functions. Forgive yourself and every one else before you go to sleep, and healing will take place much more rapidly

Joseph Murphy

However, you should forgive everyone- it is for your own peace of mind. You heal better when your mind is at peace.

As a person thinks, feels, and believes, so is the condition of his or her mind, body, and circumstances

Joseph Murphy

Have you heard of this quote- “fake it until you make it”?

Well this may work sometimes you actually are the product of how you think because it defines you a lot.


I’d rate this book 4/5 stars.

I’ll keep one star to myself for although the book was/is/will be great, there was something which just did not click.

Final Words

This book is excellent for someone who is consciously feeding itself great content, whether in videos or books. If you are working on yourself and trying to be a better version of yourself, want mental stability, want to lie peacefully, this book is one way.

Do I recommend this book? Yes, I do. But for those who are not into bible and mythology, this book can be overwhelming, for there are so many biblical references in the text. All in all, if you do decide to read this book, you are not making a wrong decision.
