A native of Ireland who resettled in America, Joseph Murphy, Ph.D., D.D., (1898-1981) was a prolific and widely admired New Thought minister and writer, best known for his motivational classic The Power of Your Subconscious Mind, an international bestseller since it first appeared onto the self-help scene in 1963. A popular speaker, Murphy lectured on both American coasts and in Europe, Asia, and South Africa. He wrote widely and his many books and pamphlets on the auto-suggestive and metaphysical faculties of the human mind have entered multiple editions, including the renowed How to Attract Money. Murphy is considered one of the pioneering voices of affirmative-thinking philosophy.


The Power Of Your Subconscious Mind is one of few exceptions, likely because of two factors. First, the author, Joseph Murphy, was a popular minister of the Church of Divine Science and second, because his book took root in both science and religion. From today’s perspective, the book feels a bit woo-woo, but at the time, it struck the exact right nerve.

That’s why this how-to guide for manipulating your own behavior to get what you want has sold millions of copies and remains popular to this day. Here are 3 lessons to help you tap into the unconscious part of your mind:

  • Use visualization as a way to exploit the placebo effect in your favor.
  • If you can’t decide between several options, give yourself a night to sleep over it.
  • Make a sincere effort to wish well for others, because envy only gets in your own way.

Would you like to steer your behavior in the right direction on autopilot? Who wouldn’t? So let’s see what we can learn!

Lesson 1: Visualization is a means to use the placebo effect to your advantage.

The central point of the book is that you can use your imagination to suggest ideas to your subconscious to get what you want. If repeated often enough, your mind will then steer your behavior more towards making those ideas a reality, unbeknownst to you.

Lesson 2: When in doubt, sleep on it. Often, you can make more confident decisions after a good night’s rest.

Another way you can make use of your subconscious is to simply sleep on things when you have a tough time deciding.

Murphy’s example is a woman, who was offered a job at the opposite coast of the country. It paid twice her current salary, but she was unsure whether to move across the nation for it. As she meditated in the evening, she fell asleep.
