About the Author

Joseph Murphy and the Power of Your Subconscious Mind: Great Minds Series, Volume 6, 2017 Revised, Updated, and Reformatted Edition, is a study that features one of the greatest self-help authors of our time. Joseph Murphy (1898-1981), born in Ireland, was a naturalized American author and New Thought minister, ordained in divine science and religious science. He was born into a strictly Catholic schoolmaster family and was accepted as a Jesuit seminarian. However, by the time he reached his late teen years, he began to question the orthodoxy of the Jesuits and withdrew from the seminary, leaving his family for going to America, where he started a modest career as a pharmacist.

Parallel to his job, he began to study all of the world’s religions, yet his concept of Christianity was nontraditional, and he founded his own church in Los Angeles, becoming a proponent of the New Thought movement, whose founder, Ernest Holmes, became his mentor. Gradually his classes, his sermons, and his radio programs became more and more widely known, and his fame spread with publishing his first best seller, The Power of Your Subconscious Mind, in 1963. Over the years he received several academic degrees as a scientist, a theologian, and a PhD as well. In his later years he also became a Fellow of the Andhra Research University of India.

After his first great publishing success, he wrote more than 30 other books that all become best sellers. He died in 1981, and his wife, Dr. Jean Murphy, continued his ministry. Dr. Murphy left a legacy that is highly important in our time of loss of soul in everyday life. His practical and yet deeply spiritual teaching and prayer technique, called scientific prayer, has left a markstone in our time for those who, without wanting to join a fixated credo, wish to live a spiritual life; do good to others; experience success, wealth, and recognition; and create inner peace.

My Thoughts

This is my first review for an audiobook. In my previous post “which is better audiobook or books?” I spoke about the choices how the technology is developing around us and many other points. I too tired listening to an audiobook. To tell you the truth, concentrating on an audio was a troublesome at the start. But, it’s an awesome experience to listen to a book (I still prefer reading book, nothing would change that.)

The Power of the Subconscious Mind, as the name suggests, your mind is the most the power weapon; the power to create and destroy things around you. Our thoughts, healing our illness, ability to earn wealth, to have a good health, it’s all within us, but we are so much involved in our own problems around us we forget about the strength inside us

A simple example of the power of your mind, this event must have occurred in everyone’s life. Have you ever had a sudden strong wise about something and it actually happen? Few days ago I had a sudden desire to eat a chocolate cake while working in the kitchen and to my surprise my husband brought me a chocolate cake the next day. (I never told him about my wish to have a chocolate cake.) That’s the power of our subconscious mind.

What I liked about this Book

Never complete a negative statement

While listening to the book, I came across the theory of Dr. Murphy teachings “Never complete a negative statement”. This theory has a great impact on my thought. To be very honest; Im a very pessimist person, It’s the law of attraction. If you think good, good things will happen to you, if you think bad thoughts; bad thing will follow to you. Everything is about your thoughts, good or bad. The stronger there are the stronger the results are.

Pray, Faith and Healing

The book does have a positive impact as you go on listening. Even the example narrated in the audiobook such as pray therapy are some story that we hear during the get-together, or the experience shared by our friends or families. Pray has the power to change your life. There are people who have healed through praying. Faith too plays an important role in our life. Even doctors tells us to keep faith during our hard times when our loved ones goes through bad health.

My Review

“A book that should have a place in your bookshelf”. A book that would change the way you think.
