Self Mastery Through Conscious Autosuggestion is a book by French psychologist Emile Coué, first published in 1922. The book discusses the practice of autosuggestion and the ways in which it can help you in your daily life. The author was known for introducing this as a method of psychotherapy and self-improvement. Along with his wife, he founded The Lorraine Society of Applied Psychology in 1903. His teachings were very popular in Europe during his lifetime, but later they also became very widespread in America, with people like Napoleon Hill and Norman Vincent Peale becoming famous themselves by spreading the words of Coué. The method he used - that of a mantra repeated many times a day (Every day, in every way, I'm getting better and better) is known as the Coué method, and whilst the author always stressed he was not a healer, he did make the claim that he had effected organic changes through autosuggestion. Coué held the belief that because of how our mental organisation worked, it seemed like we had two minds, each having attributes and powers, and capable of action independently from the other. His methods can be linked with the law of attraction, in that they relied on the basis that any idea that occupies the mind exclusively, becomes reality - within the realms of possibility. The main obstacle to this being willpower - the need for the person to refrain from imposing his or her own views on positive ideas.
The book covers these principles, as well as including some letters from his patients who were treated by using this medthod of autosuggestion.
This book has 54 pages in the PDF version, and was originally published in 1922.
