This refers to the ideo-motor aspect of suggestion we talked about earlier: the conscious mind will rationalize ways to transform any idea accepted by the subconscious mind into a reality. In addition, a stronger or dominant suggestion will take precedence over a weaker one.
Our behavior is characterized by the choices we are constantly having to make. We cannot think two things at the same time, nor can we act in two different ways at the same time. If you manage to convince a kleptomaniac that he or she won't steal anymore, then s/he won't steal!
Coué formulated the following laws concerning this aspect of suggestion:
1. When the conscious and subconscious minds are in conflict, the subconscious mind will always - without exception - prevail.
2. When the conscious and subconscious minds are in conflict, the subconscious mind exerts a force that is in direct proportion to the square of the conscious mind (the mathematical term is an analogy which we hope will help readers comprehend Coué's approach).
3. When the conscious and subconscious minds are in agreement, they do not work together - each gains force from the other.
4. The subconscious mind can be directed.
