"When the imagination and will power are in conflict, are antagonistic, it is always the imagination which wins, without any exception."

"Every day in every way I'm getting better and better."

Although commonly known to the layman as a technique that can affect the physical world, bring wealth, and even add to one's intelligence, autosuggestion is actually a technique

This is an excellent book that should be taken for its own worth, given the time it was written in, the mindset of the times, the writing style of the times, etc. A lot has changed since then, but it still remains a charming, useful, delightful, informative, inspiring reference by a man I like and respect. I like to think of Placebo Effect in relation to what he has to say in the book and how that is all related to modern medical and psychological research. Quite charming indeed!

Interesting short read about the power of autosuggestion. The author claims that our brain consists of two parts: conscious(will) and subconscious(imagination). The subconscious brain is the more powerful one of the two and has the power to control our actions through our thoughts. If we can influence our thoughts, and thus our subconsciousness, we can influence and change our actions in a way we want to.

The subconsciousness is described as a wild horse which is constantly running in our heads.

Excellent read on the subject of the Power of the Mind and Body

I picked Coué's book because I had been studying J. Murphy's The Power of Your Subconscious Mind which I found very interesting. But after reading this, I categorize it as an application to Murphy's book, a more practical guide to everything that Murphy says, even though, from the two, it is Coué who is the pioneer in the field, having enounced and proven all these facts since the beginning of the 20th century. At the end of the book

It's a short book, so not a lot of time has to be wasted reading it. The phrasing is a bit archaic, but then what can one expect from something that was written more than one hundred years ago?

But there is one thing that is undeniable: it is the most positive work I've ever encountered.

One of the classics of clinical hypnosis.

But, it's boring, and I don't think you can cure diabetes with hypnosis. Sorry.

It is a great book if you want to know how hypnosis works. You can take charge of your fate by canceling your unconscious negative beliefs and implementing conscious autosuggestion!

This book seems weirdly edited. Not sure if it's supposed to be a collection of writings from Coue or a book in of itself. In any case, the explanations of how autosuggestion works and why is enlightening. The part where he describes how he conducts suggestion (which seems more like hypnotism) on his patients is weird. The list of cases that were successfully cured is skipable as the reader does gain much knowledge.

The way the instructions are written feels dated. I was hoping there would be
it was a quick gave me a new perspective on the idea of imagination..I like to think that the imagination is the foundation for most of our acts ..too many examples of patients healings.. i guess all these examples were meant to autosuggest us into believing this idea;)..I might be wrong, well i hope i am wrong because it could really help a lot of people including myself to master our unconsiouss mind. So I will definitely try these methods.

J'ai décroché quand j'ai lu le mot disciple....

Un texte argumentaire sans plus, sur le mérite d'une méthode qui peut être fonctionne bien. Mais au vu des efforts pour en convaincre le lecteur l'auteur semble être à la recherche de gens qui adhéreront à sa façon de faire.
Quite disappointed after I finished reading this book. Is just right example oh how someone kiss his own arrs. Is not so much about autosuggestion but how everyone is praising monsieur Coué.
Worth a read

If you are familiar to the topic, youll probably find this book useful. Word limit word limit word limit word

Five stars for brevity!
What can I say about this book? A bit boring while listing diseases and patients, but interesting because of the concept.
Do I believe in autosuggestion? I don't know.
For sure I have ever thought that mind power or a certain kind of interior strenght can do much more of what we normally believe.
Especially the Western world is scientifically oriented and often fails to deal with what is difficult to explain rationally.
Sometimes it is interesting to also leave a bit of space to mysticism and to
Olivier Goetgeluck
Autosuggestion: the implanting of an idea in oneself by oneself.

We humans have a certain resemblance to sheep, and involuntarily, we are irresistibly impelled to follow other people's examples, imagining we cannot do otherwise.

When the will and the imagination are in agreement, one does not add to the other, but one is multiplied by the other.

Start from imagination first, then will. Not other way.

What a pleasure it has been! I've adhered to the common phrase that one idea can ,and will ,change you in both thought forms and mannerisms and the Coue Method is definitely one of them. A 52 paged psychological thrill.. life-changing ,heart warming and thought-provoking brilliance.

A very shortish book but still provides a clear understanding of how powerful Autosuggestion can be in unleashing limitless potential of our unconscious mind.

this is also listed on web md as a way for healing cancer!
Même avis que pour les bouquins de Martin Rosenberg (commu non violente) : l'outil proposé est un apport incontestable, mais le livre qui l'explique n'est pas exceptionnel.

Interesting stuff....if you're into hypnotism. :)
