Alignment with True Self

Tuesday, February 26th, 2019

Focusing on aligning my state of being with my deepest truest self has been most important to me these last two weeks.  One of the ways I do that is to listen to an inspirational uplifting message.   Today I was listening to a You Tube audio called Rampage in the Receptive Mode, published by Heaven on Earth.

I wrote down word for word what this spiritual guide suggested.

“If we were standing in your physical shoes, we would do these things every day.”  My intent was to bring into vibrational alignment my personal self and my truest self so that I would be in a state of being that is conducive to creating.  I have a category on this blog called State.  This is the description of that category.

Your state, state of mind, state of being, state of awareness, state of consciousness, is the single most important aspect to your success. If there is conflict in your state, your success is hindered. If you are aligned personal self and Source Self, you are unstoppable.”

Abraham went on to describe in the video I was watching the 4 steps they thought we physical humans would most benefit from, and I said “Aha”  I know these steps.  Am I doing them?

1. “We would meditate for 15 minutes every day.” Quietening the mind allows us to relax into the flow of being where we are aligned with the best and highest in ourselves.

2. “We would go outside no matter what the weather and we’d move around in it in an appreciation of this planet. We would look up and around and we would find things to acknowledge, and we would talk to them out loud.”

3. “We would create a notebook. We would call it my book of positive aspects. We would fill at least three, four, five is even better, pages of positives on five different subjects.  . . This is training your vibration into an upward place.”

4. “We would look upward and outward.  It would be best if you are standing outside or standing next to a window.  We would acknowledge that there are universal forces that are focused right at you.”  Abraham suggested that we call it by the name we  are comfortable.

What is your language for “God?”  I use such words as The Divine, Creator, Source, Universe, The Source that creates worlds.  But when I  am more contracted and smaller, I use the language that I learned in my church, which was God, or Jesus.  Abraham goes on to say something like the following.

Creative Source, “I acknowedge that I am the object of your positive attention and I am appreciating your continual gaze on behalf of my well-being. .. Today no matter where I am, no matter where I am going, no matter what I am doing and no matter who I am doing it with, I will be in conscious awareness that you too are there with me. “

Source, ” you are appreciating me

supporting me

assisting me

acknowledging me

inspiring me

guiding me

having fun with me

acknowledging me

supporting me

assisting me

inspiring me

helping me

guiding me

aware of me

loving me

showing me

inspiring me

guiding me

 uplifting me

showing me. . . . .”

Abraham suggests that we set up a continual loop of acknowledgement that might look like the above and suggests that we watch because as soon as even today, our life will begin to change.

Meditation is powerful.  I have written at least nine posts about Meditation.  There are many ways to meditate.  I’m writing a book about it and yet, I keep forgetting how important it is. I start the practice, and then get diverted by a health or emotional crisis, and then my ego kicks in and says, “it is hard to surrender to a higher power because I don’t want to lose my free will.”  What gobbledygook!

Going outside is so important.  In my blog entry  “Receptively Tuning In “I write about a meditative practice that I do sitting outside.  I can feel my whole being begin to soften, get into flow, become more alive as I walk out in nature, or sit out on my balcony and commune with the outside world.

Training ourselves to raise our vibration by writing about Positive Aspects is a powerful, powerful idea.  I usually journal and then write to my own inner guidance, but the idea of writing about the positive aspects of five different subjects is something I want to try.  In “Positivity, A Secret to Success” I wrote “Dr Fredrickson research indicates that we need a ratio of 3:1 positive feelings and experiences to thrive and flourish; to be the best version of you.”   I wrote in  “Strengths and Success”  “Everyone needs at least five positive interactions for every negative interaction. That is the magic ratio” which is suggested by Tom Rath and Donald Clifton in their book “How Full is Your Bucket.  I am looking forward to practicing this idea  by starting a positive aspects book.

I love the idea of acknowledging to Source that we know that it has us in its gaze, and doing the loop of acknowledgement.  Sounds very much like Prayer to me.  How very powerful. In “Vibration, the Law of Attraction and the Law of Success” I describe how Napoleon Hill, and Wallace Wattles both write about the secret of creating success and much of it was edited out of their work.  When we align our vibratory frequency with the greater reality of the intelligence of the Living God within ourselves, our best, truest self; we are unstoppable.  We can create anything that we can think of.

Let’s try these four ways of upping our frequency, getting into receptive mode, so that we can begin to manifest all the things that we have put into our vibrational escrow (which Abraham calls the Vortex).  Abraham says that what we have created is waiting for us to align with it, in order for them to show up physically in our lives.  I know its time.

Daily Meditation is Essential

Thursday, May 03rd, 2018

My life has revolutionized itself in the last 60 days. I have taken up the practice of a certain type of meditation. It has become the highest priority in my life. Every day, that half hour of meditation is more important than anything else.

I have been meditating for at least 48 years, in some fashion. What’s so special about what I am doing now? Nothing! The fact that I am doing it every day is what is special. It is turning my life around.

All of my adult life I have wanted a stable center that I can count on. The older I have gotten, the more important it has become. I am a strong personality, but also a very intuitive and sensitive person. I often have felt in the past that I lived on the top of the sea where the waves collided and crashed, and my life in a small boat was mostly reactive. I have asked many years for a way to become my own stable base to be anchored into the still waters of the deep.

Finally, after starting this practice which I created myself (no, it’s not eastern meditation), I am on fire with energy, with happiness, and with a deep connection to my own stable base. Holy Smoke!

Over the last 10 years I have written in this blog many times about meditation. Two years ago I started a kind of meditation that had me sit outside and just be. It’s wonderful. You can read about it in Receptively Tuning in. I still love it, and still use it.

In Meditate to a New State of Being I write about yet another style of meditation of becoming soft while looking into the flame of a wood stove. I have a style of meditative writing I have been doing for more than 35 years which I describe in “Tap Your Wisdom.” I use prayer as a meditation as well as imagery. One of my most favorite techniques I call 17 seconds which I embrace in “Prosperity Success Secret of 17 Seconds.” Meditation is not new to this blog. I have written a category of entries about acquiring a State of Being where you can be your best self, and tap into success and the flow of life.

This blog began as an exploration of the Law of Success. It gravitated over time to talk about the Art of Creation of your success by tapping into your Source Self (the law of attraction). To create the magnified results we want, I have concluded we have to lift our vibration, integrate the various aspects of our self, and align into a state of flow and joy. Often we send very mixed signals to the universe. Getting those signals cohesive is important and can only be done in a certain state of being. The brief description offered in The Art of Connecting with the Power of Creation might help.

That’s a short summary of what I have written to you these last many years. After all this time, I feel like I have made another breakthrough, and it came as a result of the pain of the dark night of the soul that I lived through from January through early March of this year resisting the call of my sublime self. I had a ‘come to Jesus’ moment with my inner wisdom and told it how I really felt, and two days later I sat down, meditated, and my life began to change and blossom. I can’t wait to tell you more.

The Secret to Creating the Impossible

Friday, July 14th, 2017

I am SO much better. To celebrate my return, I wanted to share a very simple secret to creating a reality that you want, but seems improbable. It is so simple.

All you have to really do is
know that it is possible.

This sounds too easy to be true. But it is simple, and it is true. Ah, but the however…… to know (not just believe) that it is possible: that is the conundrum. I have written about it repeatedly here on this blog. Here are steps to the creation of the impossible.

1. Be tuned in, tapped in, and turned on to your aliveness.
2. Raise your vibratory rate again, and again, and again.
3. Do your personal and spiritual growth work.
4. Trust in your own inner compass and use your intuition.
5. Connect with the best and highest of yourself.
6. Connect with the largest vision of your life.
7. Stay in flow as much as possible
8. Enjoy and delight in the present moment.
9. Know that what you desire is possible.
10.Journey through the gap between “what is currently” to the “what is of the future”.

“What?##!!” you say. “That could take a lifetime.” So it could, but what a lifetime it is! And as I have said so many times before, it is all a State of Being. Some people call it a mindset. But there is much more to it than your mind. It is your whole being, body, soul, emotions, mind, and consciousness.

A story might help. I had a health condition called colitis. (I changed the verb to past tense, did you notice). My Dad and his brother also had it. My Dad was forced to retire when in his early 40’s because he could not work.

My colitis began in my late 40’s and I was able to work. Last
fall I resolved to make my health my top priority. The autoimmune food plan that I have committed to has really made an improvement. I’ve been feeling better.

However, in my secret self, I did not believe I would ever be without this ‘disease.’ I’ve heard many stories of other people who were able to make themselves better, but inside I figured that was for other people, it couldn’t happen to me. One day something really got my attention.

I was telling my oldest brother about my condition, and he just out of the blue, said “You know don’t you, that Dad healed himself of this when he was 65?” I said no, I didn’t know that. My whole being reeled!

He continued. “You are doing the same thing, you know. You are eating only those foods that don’t create inflammation. You are eating happy meat, you are eating organically. You are fundamentally creating the same circumstance that Dad did. The other thing he did was gather some prayer warriors and ask for a healing.”

I thought to myself, “My Dad was really a lot sicker than I ever have been. If he could live with the disease that long, and then cure it when he was 65, then by golly so can I!”

And all of a sudden, healing my body of the disease became very real to me. I could now envision the possibility of being free of Colitis. The Universe has offered me some very different ways of healing it that I didn’t expect. I totaled my car in March while driving to see my daughter. My doctor offered a brand new procedure to take out my colon except for a few inches of it (no outside bag). “You would be disease free” she said.

Dying or having major surgery was not what I had in mind. But there was certain humor about the fact that I could be completely disease free in those possibilities. I passed on those options.

But now I knew it was possible to become free of this condition. And I am getting better and better and better. Sometime soon, I intend to report to you that I no longer have that condition.

When you know something CORE deep, it is so much easier to journey through the unknown of the GAP without clutching in fear or the need to figure it out.

So that’s the profound secret to changing Reality from what you have to: what you want it to be. Just this simple. Know that it is possible.

Let me hear from you. please share your story with me. You can talk to me on the Public Facebook Group called “Success Factors

Universe always surprises us

Saturday, July 13th, 2013

The Universe always surprises us. That is one of the wonderful things about being alive. We never know how Life will shift and change.

All these years I have written about the Laws of Success, and integrated the Law of Attraction into it. My journey has given me adventures and challenges I never would have anticipated. There is always something new to learn and grow into. Therefore Life is never boring!

Last year I wrote how I got the dreams of my life, and they were beyond what I could imagine.

Now I want to tell you that it has taken a lot of time and energy to grow into that life that I was given, and it wasn’t all fun. There has been sweat, sleepless nights, illness, depression, and long periods of unease as I had to enlarge my capacity to live within the life I had created.

I could tell you all the details, but that would be another book. But here are a few highlights. My book has stalled. I needed some technical expertise, but the most important thing, is that I needed to grow much thicker skin. Whenever an author puts something out into the world, you receive feedback. I needed to get to a strong enough place inside myself to weather what people have will have to say about it, pro and con.

I had to learn to be a much better writer. I thought I was good, but the truth is, I had to become much better. I needed to hear what other people had to say about the book and refine it, especially where people didn’t understand what I was saying or where I had taken too big a leap, and I had to give the reader time to catch up with me.

In my personal life, I live in a condominium community where doctors, attorneys, health professionals, and other walks of life, come together and make shared decisions about our buildings, our pets, lead paint, sidewalks, etc. That sounds really ideal – right? I love this community, but I have never worked so hard at communicating in my life. It is intense, everyone has strong opinions and want to be heard and included. I spent much of the last nine months as a renter observing, noting the wonderful things about the community but not participating at great depth.

I thought I knew a great deal, that I had many professional skills to look at the process of how we work. I thought what I had to offer would be very helpful to where I live, and that people would be glad to hear what I had to share. Not!

Anytime you try to make a joint decision that involves some 35 homes and over 80 people, let me tell you, it is not a piece of cake. I just spent 12 days, full time, day and many sleepless nights, just working on trying to educate our whole community to a hazard to our children. I felt like I was walking through a swamp of aligators.

These are good people, with good intentions, carrying the intent to have a good community in which to live. That’s what I asked for, remember?

I got the community I asked for and more. What I am learning, is how easy it is to be misunderstood. How circuitous communication needs to be to keep including everyone. It is like making a loop, and another loop, and another loop to have someway to keep us all reasonably on the same page.

And when it doesn’t work, there are lots of responses. I am finding for myself, that in the intensity of the moments, and in the serendipitous and spontaneous encounters on the paths, in the laundry room, at our weekly community meals, that I cannot always bring my best self to the encounter. In fact, some of my more unsavory characteristics show. And they show very publicly.

I have to keep making a decision to be visible, have my humaness, in all of its warts and undesired facial hair, be seen by people I admire and respect. Then I have to trust that those same people will not make a split judgement and write me off forever, because I made a mistake, or was intense, and did not speak clearly. This is the most complex living I have ever experienced. I constantly feel like I am living out at my farthest growing edge, and it is not easy or fun. But I am expanding and growing, uncomfortable as it is.

And if that wasn’t enough, I have blundered a number of times. I have chosen to publicly apologize for how I have responded in a crisis. My pride just keeps taking hits. I constantly have to keep making the decision that my caring for my neighbors and those relationships is far more important than my pride. Have I told you I absolutely deplore apologizing and making amends?

I was walking with someone, making amends yesterday, and I said. “I pulled out my vision board from the first of 2013, and see that I am getting just exactly what I asked for. I asked to accept the humanness of the human condition, and my own humanness this year, and I am getting it in spades. I’m getting really cautious about asking for what I want, because the Universe gives it to me, and then I have to deal with it. It is like my soul just say “Hallelujah, she just opened herself to this growth, let’s go for it.””

I was sick for two months. I just was only able to lay in bed and not think much, because it was taking all my energy to heal. I had no clue as to why I was sick.

Now I feel like I have stepped out of a cocoon of isolation, and the world I have stepped into is a new one, and I have new eyes with which to see, and new ways of perceiving, and new ways of understanding.

Everywhere I look, there are people undergoing some kind of transformation. It is a very wild ride. Mine certainly has been.

I was told many years ago, that the years 2010 – 2015 would be difficult years. We as a world are making a huge shift. I believe, it is one where we are unearthing the behaviors and beliefs that are not helpful, so that we may truly live more peacefully, harmoniously, and abundantly as a planet. I pray that all of us receive the support, strength, wisdom and understanding to grow and learn through these times.

Meditation, Manifestation and the Law of Success

Friday, August 31st, 2012

Meditation and Manifestation was the emphasis in my morning inspirational reading. So I practiced a new meditation of sitting, eyes closed, breathing, back against the headboard. Think “So” as you breathe in and “Hum” as you breathe out.

Moving Meditation
I liked it. Because meditation is such a fertile state for me, my creativity began zooming quite soon. So I took some notes, going in and out of my meditative state. Hum. After 25 minutes I needed to move. I held the question, what can I do that will allow me to move, but not get out of the zone, and not interrupt my plans for the next couple of hours? I could move my car – which had been parked on the street overnight. As I went out at 9:15 a.m. into the crisp August morning, I exulted once again in where I live, and the universe’s response to bringing me to my home base. My meditation had left me in flow. I had shifted state. See how I manifested my home base at 10 steps to Turning Burning Goals Into Reality.

As I looked around I noticed the landscaping. Since it was early enough in the day, and I had made an agreement to do some watering, I went, “OK. I can water.” So I gently got out the hose, and wondered how I could stay in a meditative state while I was moving around watering?

Soaking in Aliveness
I remembered how my father had planted tiny trees onto his lot in Kerrville Texas into kalechi soil. Every night, he took out his chair, because he could not stand for long, and he sat and held the hose for each tree to drink their fill. Hum. He would sit in the quiet of the evening and pray and meditate. When I would visit, I could stand with him while he watered and we would talk. It’s a lovely memory. A few years ago, I drove by my parents’ old house. There those trees were, now thirty feet high. My father contributed there. He is still alive in the roots and trunks of those trees. His meditations left tangible results. I felt full, alive, and connected as I held those memories. I felt full because I had been in a state of meditation, and I slowed down enough to really soak in being alive.

Gratitude for a Major Manifestation
As I watered, neighbors said hello. I felt more deeply connected into this community that I have just adopted. This community is another manifestation. I had placed “Community Connection” on my vision board in January. Now in August, I am in my haven and home base with a glorious roommate, and an extraordinary community who welcomes me.

So as I watered, I was filled with gratitude for all the wonderful gifts and manifestations that are pouring into my life. Hum. I have asked, and the universe has responded with a far more elegant solution than I had imagined possible. Last year’s vision board had beautiful pictures of a home with deck and porch nestled in lovely plantings of bushes and flowers. Here I was standing in a lovely manifestation of that vision.

The water fountain elements next door can be heard as I sit here and write. That beautiful essence so like spirit, just burbling and flowing in gentle sounds.

Out of Meditation comes Inspiration, Healthy Self Talk and Action
I’m in my home base, and I’m writing. I’m so happy. This blog post, many creative ideas for my future books, and a book that is almost complete are results from meditation. I am in the midst of this new manifestation. I have joined an online community of authors who are committed to publishing their Kindle books. Life is good. Things work out for me. I am in the flow, and the Universe is responding. I give thanks whenever I talk with others. The story I tell is how wonderful things are, and what a powerful manifestation this has been.

Bridging the Gap With Meditation
I’m bridging the gap of the next manifestation which I promised myself I would do when I was settled in my home base. I promised I would publish a whole series of books. And now I am in the gap between having asked, and the receiving of this next big piece. Much comes up in the gap – which is another whole blog at least. When we are in that gap, we don’t know how it is all going to happen. Who do you know is comfortable being in the unknown? Very few.

So what do I do with all the fears, discomfort and issues that come up in this gap? They have to be dealt with some way, because if they don’t, my manifestation will not happen. I will not be able to align with Source enough to allow the manifestation to be realized in physical reality.

Hum. One powerful way is to go into prayer and meditation. It is one way to slip out of the cultural and belief hypnosis that binds us to doing things the old way. We actually can leave the mind, its worries and concerns hitched to a post, and go where there is fluidity, and flow. Our vibration rises. Our body settles down and in. We have access to faith and knowing, prosperity and plenty. What a gift we receive from the practice of prayer and meditation.

And in flow, creativity flirts and beckons. Flow is such a luscious juicy place.

And here I am, in flow, writing my blog entry today. How absolutely delicious. Easy, effortless. What an incredible way to live life. “Be easy about it. Have fun with it” says Abraham.

How different it is to write from this place, to create from this place, especially while I am in the gap between finishing my first book, and getting it published. What would it be like to live the rest of this gap in the easy effortless place? What a concept!

Meditation Benefits
So for today, my dip into meditation delivered a whole new vibratory place, and a way to live through the next month or two. Hum and a delicious side benefit is that you get to read this blog I wrote unexpectedly. A miraculous little manifestation which I had not planned for today. It gives me a sign about the larger manifestation of the book. “It can happen. And I am happy and so joyful and filled with deep appreciation for this wonderful place where I live. And I have created another huge manifestation, and my body gets to know at a visceral level that manifestation has happened, and it will happen again. So of course I will find a way through this gap, and allow the Universe to sound through me, and my books will become a reality.”

Life as Prayer in the Gap
So now I can soothe my fears with this kind of deliciousness and self talk, and I feel full and excited. Hum. I am connected with certainty and knowing, because more detail has become known to me. I trust in my process. I am learning to trust in Source, in God, in the Universe, as the true Source of all. And the way I tune into that Source, is through prayer and meditation. Thank you Beloved Source for all you give. I thankfully and joyously receive. And So it is. And I Hum.

Meditate to a new State of Being

Monday, February 28th, 2011

Meditate to a new State of Being that will bring you peace, prosperity, joy, and a deep personal connection between you, You, and the Universe. Meditation is an act of allowing yourself to settle into the quiet and profoundness of the essence of You.

As we grow up, we create our personalities in response to what and how we experience life. We are truly unbelievable creators, for our personalities are quite strong and opinionated.
But there is more to us than personalities. There is a cosmic seed in each of us that germinated and then we sprouted personalities. But that timeless essence is always available in each of us as well. Most of us just never learned to quieten ourselves to tune into it.

What we need to do is bypass all the clutter of thoughts, past hurts, emotional bruises, and the different world views and beliefs held close. Meditation is one way to do that. Contemplation and prayer are other ways. Use of imagination is yet another approach.

This winter, I have sat in front of many wood stoves and watched the fire. Each time I do, I find myself slowly relaxing, looking at the fire with soft eyes, and gently finding my way back to the fullness of well-being. We’re not trying to do anything, we are slowly relaxing back to the well-being of Source. That cosmic seed that still exists in each of us is a part of Source.

If you have been having a difficult time connecting with this idea that You that came from Source, then try sitting in front of a fire. Give yourself permission to sit as long as you want, and to drift into a zone where you are relaxed, enjoying the fire, present to the here and now (not off in past memories or future things to do).

Watch with soft eyes and a soft mind. Let yourself be lulled into the quiet. Savor the sweetness of watching the flames. Hear the quiet. Let the peace fill your mind and body. You need do nothing. You need not try anything. You’re just allowing yourself to settle deep into the essence of you where you feel like you, but you are deeply relaxed. You feel full. You have soft wonder of the flames.

There is a lulling past all thoughts and activity down to the core of you. Here there are no worries and cares, there’s just the gentle warmth of the fire, the flickering of the flame, and the deep quietness where you know all is well.

It is from this place, this state of being that we can create quickly and profoundly. for we have created resonance between our personality and our Source or Seed Self. Doing 17 seconds from this place within will bring profound results. This is the secret to the Law of Attraction that so many people don’t know or understand.

That secret is to shift into a state of being where there is resonance inside of you with the essence or core of You. Then in that state of resonance visualize in great detail what you wish, and stand in the knowing that all is well. In this zone of profound quietness, you will know that you are in tune, tapped in, and that there is nothing that you cannot do or have.

All you had to do was watch the fire, allow yourself to soften and relax back to the state where you are resonant with yourself.

Vibration, the Law of Attraction and the Law of Success

Wednesday, December 31st, 2008

Vibration, the Law of Success and the Law of Attraction are powerful principles described by Napoleon Hill. In the last two posts we have looked at the Subconscious mind and Faith. Napoleon Hill believes that the subconscious mind provides a link with Infinite Intelligence and all other minds (Law of Attraction). But to see how the subconscious mind communicates with the Infinite Intelligence is important. Here is how Napoleon describes the dynamic behind the Law of Success which is also known as the Law of Attraction.

“Comes now a very significant statement of truth:

THOUGHTS WHICH ARE MIXED WITH ANY OF THE FEELINGS OF EMOTIONS, CONSTITUTE A ‘MAGNETIC’ FORCE WHICH ATTRACTS, FROM THE VIBRATIONS OF THE ETHER, OTHER SIMILAR, OR RELATED THOUGHTS. A thought thus “magnetized” with emotion may be compared to a seed which, when planted in fertile soil, germinates, grows, and multiplies itself over and over again, until that which was originally one small seed, becomes countless millions of seeds of the SAME BRAND!” (p.72) (Law of Attraction)

This description by Hill of the law of attraction which is essential to the Law of Success was written in the late 1930’s and edited out of many editions of Think and Grow Rich. Editors did not believe that the mass public would want to hear about vibrations and ether. These same principles were edited out of The Secret. Law of Attraction and Law of Success are based upon the same principles.

“The ether is a great cosmic mass of eternal forces of vibration. It is made up of both destructive vibrations and constructive vibrations. It carries at all times, vibrations of fear, poverty, disease, failure, misery; and vibrations of prosperity, health, success, and happiness, just as surely as it carries the sound of hundreds of orchestrations of music, and hundreds of human voices, all of which maintain their own individuality, and means of identification through the medium of radio.” (Law of attraction)

“From the great storehouse of the ether, the human mind is constantly attracting vibrations which harmonize with that which DOMINATES the human mind. Any thought, idea, plan, or purpose which one holds in one’s mind attracts, from the vibrations of the ether, a host of its relatives, adds these ‘relatives’ to its own force, and grows until it becomes the dominating, MOTIVATING MASTER of the individual in whose mind it has been housed.” (Law of Success)

Essentially Napoleon Hill is saying the same as the Law of Attraction. Like attracts like. If you hold prosperous thoughts, you will attract prosperity. If you hold scarcity thoughts as your dominant vibration, you attract scarcity. Law of Success is built around this magnetic principle. Positive thinking is not the purpose of the Law of Success. Holding positive thoughts are the necessity to attract more positive results – which is the main theorem in Law of Attraction.

In the chapter on the Subconscious Mind, Napoleon Hill once more speaks of how the Law of Attraction and the Law of Success works. He says:

“less than a hundred years ago, men believed the space between the planets to be nothing but a great void, a stretch of dead nothingness. Now thanks to this same power of FAITH, men know that far from being either dead or a void, the space between the planets is very much alive, that it is the highest form of vibration known, excepting, perhaps the vibrations of THOUGHT. Moreover, men know that this living, pulsating, vibratory energy which permeates every atom of
matter, and fills every niche of space, connects every human brain with every other human brain.” (Law of Attraction)

Hill is saying the same thing Wattles says in the Science of Getting Rich. The Law of Attraction and Law of Success are based on vibration and an intelligent universe. Both men outline the principles as they understood them in the 20’s and 30’s.

All matter is energy (Einstein). All matter is vibration. Source is in every particle. Source is Intelligent. Source hears our prayers and our thoughts. Vibration is drawn to like vibration. The reason Law of Success and Law of Attraction works, is that Source is connected to all. Source sends back ideas, and intuitions. Source can arrange coincidences and serendipity for people to meet or have like mind.

Listen to more of Hill’s description of the Law of Attraction and the Law of Success.

“What reason have men to believe that this same energy does not connect every human brain with Infinite Intelligence?” (Law of Success, Law of Attraction)

“There are no toll-gates between the finite mind of man and Infinite Intelligence. The communication costs nothing except Patience, Faith, Persistence, Understanding, and a SINCERE DESIRE to communicate…..” (Law of Success, Law of Attraction)

“The method by which you may communicate with Infinite Intelligence is very similar to that through which the vibration of sound is communicated by radio. If you understand the working principle of radio, you of course, know that sound cannot be communicated through the ether until it has been “stepped up,” or changed into a rate of vibration which the human ear cannot detect. The radio sending station picks up the sound of the human voice, and “scrambles,” or modifies it by stepping up the vibration millions of times. Only in this way, can the vibration of sound be communicated through the ether. After this transformation has taken place, the ether “picks up” the energy (which originally was in the form of vibrations or sound), carries that energy to radio receiving stations and these receiving sets “step” that energy back down to its original rate of vibration so it is recognized as sound.” (Law of Success, Law of Attraction)

The Law of Attraction and Law of Success are based on vibration. In Hill’s model, the subconscious is our “Radio station.” What is being broadcast out of the subconscious is very important. Old beliefs and repetitive thinking go into the subconscious. Some strategies will be talked about in future posts (EFT or Tapping). Where we put our attention is what we draw to us. This is a fundamental principal of Law of Attraction and Law of Success. If we focus on how little money we have then we attract more lack of money. This is a crucial factor in Law of Attraction and Law of Success. This understanding of the Law of Attraction and the Law of Success is extraordinarily important right now. Today. When everywhere we look and hear messages about the economy we are influenced by other’s thoughts and perceptions. If our focus is on “what is” – the slow down, the recession – then it is a guarantee that more of the same will happen. The Law of Attraction guarantees that if the national public focuses on a depression, it will happen.

As we are all influenced greatly by what is being said around us, it is paramount to understand this principle of the Law of Attraction and the Law of Success. What to do? Read the section under strategies. Practice imagining having what you do want, and what it will be like when it arrives. The Law of Attraction listens to the Subconscious. If you are imagining – and that is the only way to get those thoughts into the Subconscious – what you desire, then you are vibrating differently than when you are focused on lack. The Law of Success places much emphasis on optimism – which is a vibratory frequency more in alignment with Success.

But let’s go back to Napoleon Hill who wrote Think and Grow Rich as a direct answer for people who were coming out of the Great Depression. He took great pains to delineate the Law of Success and Law of Attraction to help that generation who were lost in fear.

“The subconscious mind is the intermediary, which translates one’s prayers into terms which infinite Intelligence can recognize, presents the message, and brings back the answer in the form of a definite plan or idea for procuring the object of prayer. ….Before your prayer will reach Infinite Intelligence,…it probably is transformed from its original thought vibration into terms of spiritual vibration. Faith is the only known agency which will give your thoughts a spiritual nature.” (Law of Success, Law of Attraction)

To summarize the past few posts to more fully understand the Law of Success and the Law of Attraction:

    The subconscious is our connecting Link with Infinite Intelligence.
    The subconscious mind is fed by habit.
    You can consciously “feed” the subconscious with thoughts mixed with
    Faith, Burning Desire, Powerful emotions, Imagination.
    These ideas can be submitted to the subconscious only through Imagination.
    Prayers are this kind of “conscious feeding”
    The state you are in when you pray determines the result.
    Pray with Faith and Expectancy. (Ask and it is Given)
    Imagine that you already in possession of that which you desire.
    Thoughts and Images are things.
    The Universe arranges itself around you based on your vibration.
    If you vibrate scarcity and poverty – you get more of it.
    If you vibrate abundance and plenty – you get more of it.
    What you focus upon is what you attract to yourself magnetically.
    Every particle of the Universe is intelligent.
    Einstein says the most important question there is:
    Is the Universe friendly or not?

You get to pick. What kind of life do you want to have? I focused on poverty and lack most of my life. I decided that I had had enough. The Universe definitely provided me what I had been focusing on and the stories I had been telling myself and others. I much prefer feeding myself images created in the 17 second process – a strategy from the Law of Attraction and the Law of Success.

The Law of Success and the Law of Attraction want you to have what you want. The Universe will provide it to you as you imagine it to be. You get to apply a little will power and choice to what you think about. The Universe is waiting for you to apply the Law of Success and the Law of Attraction in whatever way you wish.

Tomorrow we will talk about states of being and how they affect our vibration. The vibration that we are emitting governs the effect we receive from the Law of Attraction and the Law of Success.

Subconscious and the Law of Success

Sunday, December 28th, 2008


Subconscious
interacts with the Law of Success in a specific way. Napoleon Hill sees the Subconscious Mind as the connecting Link. I am going to quote in detail from his chapter on the Subconscious Mind (Chap. 12 in Think and Grow Rich) in case you only have the heavily edited version. The Law of Attraction information restates what Napoleon Hill said many years ago. He says:

“Through a method of procedure, unknown to man, the subconscious mind draws upon the forces of Infinite Intelligence for the power with which it voluntarily transmutes one’s desires into their physical equivalent, making use, always of the most practical media by which this end may be accomplished.

“There is plenty of evidence to support the belief that the subconscious mind is the connecting link between the finite mind of man and Infinite Intelligence. It is the intermediary through which one may draw upon the forces of Infinite Intelligence at will. It, alone, contains the secret process by which mental impulses are modified and changed into their spiritual equivalent. It alone, is the medium through which prayer may be transmitted to the source capable of answering prayer.

“The possibilities of creative effort connected with the subconscious mind are stupendous and imponderable. They inspire one with awe.”

“….The very fact that the subconscious mind is the medium of communication between the thinking mind of man and Infinite Intelligence is, of itself, a thought which almost paralyzes one’s reason.

“After you have accepted, as a reality, the existence of the subconscious mind, and understand its possibilities, as a medium for transmuting your DESIRES into their physical or monetary equivalent, you will comprehend the full significance of the instructions given in the chapter on DESIRE. You will also understand why you have been repeatedly admonished to MAKE YOUR DESIRES CLEAR, AND TO REDUCE THEM TO WRITING. You will also understand the necessity of PERESISTENCE in carrying out instructions. “

Napoleon Hill goes on to say that the thirteen principles behind the Law of Success “are the stimuli with which you acquire the ability to reach, and to influence your subconscious mind. Do not become discouraged, if you cannot do this upon first attempt. Remember that the subconscious mind may be voluntarily directed only through habit, under the directions given in the chapter on FAITH. You have not yet had time to master faith. Be patient. Be Persistent.”

“A good many statements in the chapters on faith and auto-suggestion will be repeated here, for the benefit of YOUR subconscious mind. Remember, your subconscious mind functions voluntarily, whether you make any effort to influence it or not. This, naturally, suggests to you that thoughts of fear and poverty, and all negative thoughts serve as stimuli to your subconscious mind, unless, you master these impulses and give it more desirable food upon which it may feed.

“The subconscious mind will not remain idle! If you fail to plant DESIRES in your subconscious mind, it will feed upon the thoughts which reach it as the result of your neglect. We have already explained that thought impulses, both negative and positive are reaching the subconscious mind continuously…..

“For the present, it is sufficient if you remember that you are living daily, in the midst of all manner of thought impulses which are reaching your subconscious mind, without your knowledge. Some of these impulses are negative, some are positive. You are now engaged in trying to help shut off the flow of negative impulses, and to aid in voluntarily influencing your subconscious mind, through positive impulses of DESIRE.

“When you achieve this, you will possess the key which unlocks the door to your subconscious mind. Moreover, you will control that door so completely, that no desirable thought may influence your subconscious mind.

“Everything which man creates, BEGINS in the form of a thought impulse. Man can create nothing which he does not first conceive in THOUGHT. Through the aid of the imagination, thought impulses may be assembled into plans. The imagination, when under control, may be used for the creation of plans or purposes that lead to success in one’s chosen occupation.

“All thought impulses, intended for transmutation into their physical equivalent, voluntarily planted in the subconscious mind, must pass through the imagination, and be mixed with faith. The “mixing” of faith with a plan, or purpose, intended for submission to the subconscious mind, may be done ONLY through the imagination.

“From these statements, you will readily observe that the voluntary use of the subconscious mind calls for coordination and application of all the principles.

“Ella Wheeler Wilcox gave evidence of her understanding of the power of the subconscious mind when she wrote:

“You never can tell what a thought will do
In bringing you hate or love-
For thoughts are things, and their airy wings
Are swifter than carrier doves.
They follow the law of the universe-
Each thing creates its kind,
And they speed O’er the track to bring you back
Whatever went out from your mind.”

“Mrs. Wilcox understood the truth, that thoughts which go out from one’s mind, also imbed themselves deeply in one’s subconscious mind, where they serve as a magnet, pattern, or blueprint by which the subconscious mind is influenced while translating them into their physical equivalent. Thoughts are truly things, for the reason that every material thing begins in the form of thought-energy.

“The subconscious mind is more susceptible to influence by impulses of thought mixed with “feeling” or emotion, than by those originating solely in the reasoning portion of the mind. In fact there is much evidence to support the theory, that ONLY emotionalized thoughts have any ACTION influence upon the subconscious mind. It is a well known fact that emotion or feeling, rules the majority of people. If it is true that the subconscious mind responds more quickly to, and is influenced more readily by thought impulses which are well mixed with emotion, it is essential to become familiar with the more important of emotions. There are seven major positive emotions, and seven major negative emotions. The negatives voluntarily inject themselves into the thought impulses, which insure passage into the subconscious mind. The positive must be injected, through the principle of auto-suggestion, into the thought impulses which an individual wishes to pass on to his subconscious mind.

“These emotions, or feeling impulses, may be likened to yeast in a loaf of bread, because they constitute the ACTION element, which transforms through impulses from the passive to the active state. Thus may one understand why thought impulses, which have been well mixed with emotion, are acted upon more readily than thought impulses originating in “cold reason.

“You are preparing yourself to influence and control the “inner audience” of your subconscious mind, in order to hand over to it the DESIRE for money, which you wish transmuted into its monetary equivalent. It is essential, therefore, that you understand the method of approach to this “inner audience.” You must speak its language, or it will not heed your call. It understands best the language of emotion or feeling. …….Remember in this connection, that you are studying a book which is intended to help you develop a “money consciousness” by filling your mind with positive emotions. One does not become money conscious by filling one’s mind with negative emotions.

Form the habit of applying and using the positive emotions! Eventually they will dominate your mind so completely, that the negatives cannot enter it.”

Napoleon Hill says powerful things in the next section on the Subconscious mind about faith and prayer. We will take that up in the next post.

The Secret Key to Law of Success # 10 Think Accurately

Tuesday, November 04th, 2008

The Secret Key to Law of Success # 10 Think Accurately

The secret key to the Law of Success #10 is to Think Accurately. All your creations, plans, achievements are begun as thoughts. Your mind is like a garden. It can be groomed and weeded into a cultivation of beauty and productivity. Or it can be left alone to be overrun with weeds carried as seeds on the wind and by passing birds.

To Think Accurately is a skill that is developed over time. Choosing your thoughts, and discerning where your thought come from is very important. Often our thoughts are generated from the beliefs and experiences of our upbringing or those people with whom we hang out. Your thoughts are very powerful. Your thoughts are vibration. What you think about activates the universe. To really understand this from a positive perspective, let’s talk again about the 17 second process.

    “You are only 17 seconds Away from 68 Seconds to Fulfillment.”

    “With only a few seconds of focusing your attention on a subject, you activate the vibration of that subject within you, and immediately the Law of Attraction begins to respond to that activation. The longer you keep your attention focused on something, the easier it becomes for you to continue to focus upon it because you are attracting, through the Law of Attraction, other thoughts or vibrations that are the essence of the thought you began with.

    “Within 17 seconds of focusing on something, a matching vibration becomes activated. And now as that focus become stronger and the vibration becomes clearer, the Law of Attraction will bring to you more thoughts that match. At this point, the vibration will not have much attraction power, but if you maintain your focus longer, the power of vibration will become further-reaching. And if you manage to stay purely focused upon any thought for as little as 68 seconds, the vibration is powerful enough that its manifestation begins.

    “When you repeatedly return to a pure thought, maintaining it for at least 68 seconds, in a short period of time (hours in some cases or a few days in others) that thought becomes a dominant thought. And once you achieve a dominant thought, you will experience matching manifestations until you change it. Ask and It Is Given by Hicks

If you haven’t already read the essay about creating your day, please do.

When you visualize something happening that you really want to happen in specific detail as though it is happening at this very moment, it is powerful. When you pray and imagine that your prayer is answered immediately, and you “see” scenes taking place after your prayer is answered, in detail with as many senses as you can, you feel great, you feel gratitude, and you are sending your appreciation to God for your answered prayer.

When I had my home in Minnesota on the market last year, for six months I had no sale. Then my daughter and I decided to do “17 seconds” every day. We would focus on how good it would feel when we received the phone call from our agent. We imagined going to closing and signing all the documents. We imagined seeing the big red SOLD sign being hung on our For Sale sign. We imagined pulling out of our driveway with our Casita travel trailer for the last time, and the sense of freedom we would feel.

There was a lot going on at the time. A lot of worry and fear clouded our emotions. But we carried on doing our “17 seconds” which usually lasted about a minute and a half. We would be exhilarated when we were finished each time. Our fear ebbed the more we did 17 seconds, because we were making the scenario real to our bodies.

Then I got that call. It came three weeks later. It didn’t happen exactly as we imagined. It was better than we imagined. The sale of the home was consummated about seven weeks later. Some very difficult circumstances were navigated very easily and mostly effortlessly. That’s another by-product of 17 seconds.

This weekend I wanted to buy a new mattress. Before I went shopping, My daughter and I did ‘17 seconds’ on finding exactly what we wanted and were specific about how much we wanted to pay. We found that mattress on our first stop for $900 below retail price, and the salesperson told us it was below cost. I know it was because we did our preparation of ‘17 seconds.’

Remember ’17 seconds’ is what it takes to begin aligning your mind. For each increment of 17 seconds that you add of focused thought, visualization, prayer, the power gets amped up. I never time my 17 seconds, because I keep adding to the visualization until I feel it “take.” In my home, we try to do our ’17 seconds’ process together. It helps to do it with someone else. You feel the emotional support of doing it together. And it is wonderful to share the exhilaration of something well imagined together when we have finished. We often give each other a high five.

What you think about is very powerful. Enjoy unleashing the eager Universe by doing ’17 seconds’ on something you want. It gets so that you don’t even have to do 17 seconds. I wanted a very large mirror to put out on my north facing patio. Within four days, my sister walked in carrying a huge door sized mirror that she ‘found’ at the dumpster when taking out my trash. So even 17 seconds can manifest. It works.

Never Give Up Hope

Thursday, October 30th, 2008

Hope

Simon hesitated and then said…..”I would like our finished product to be their life guide, a beacon of hope perhaps, a set of directions that will guide them through the darkness for the rest of their lives. “

“I would like the readers to be able to digest our entire message quickly, and I would like them to read it every morning, without fail, before commencing their day’s activities. Knowing how difficult things can be in the morning, but also how important one’s first waking hour is, try to write it so that it can be read in six minutes or less. Also be certain they understand that it must be read every morning and that if they do, their lives will eventually change for the better beyond their wildest dreams.”

So were the directions of Simon Potter to Og Mandino in the last few days of his life. They were writing a masterpiece. A book to catch those of us caught in despair and hopelessness. A ten commandments of life as it were. And it went like this.


“For the Rest of My Life. . .

    For the rest of my life there are two days that will never again trouble me.

The first day is yesterday with all its blunders and tears, its follies and defeats. Yesterday has passed forever beyond my control.

The other day is tomorrow with its pitfalls and threats, its dangers and mystery. Until the sun rises again, I have no stake in tomorrow for it is still unborn.

With God’s help and only one day to concentrate all my effort and energy on, this day, I CAN WIN! Only when I add the burden of those two frightening eternities, yesterday and tomorrow, am I in danger of faltering under the load. Never again! This is my day! This is my only day! Today is all there is! Today is the rest of my life and I resolve to conduct myself through every waking hour in the following manner. . .

For the rest of my life, this very special day, God help me. . .

. . . to heed the wise advice of Jesus and Confucius and Zoroaster and treat everyone I meet, friend or foe, stranger or family, as I would want them to treat me.

. . . to maintain a rein on my tongue and my temper, guarding against foolish moments of fault-finding and insults.

. . . to greet all those I encounter with a smile instead of a frown, and a soft word of encouragement instead of disdain or even worse, silence.

. . . to be sympathetic and attentive to the sorrows and struggles of others, realizing that there are hidden woes in every life no matter how exalted or lowly.

. . . to make haste to be kind to all others, understanding that life is too short to be vengeful or malicious, too soon ended to be petty or unkind.


For the rest of my life, this very special day, God help me . . .

. . . to keep reminding myself that in order to harvest more ears of corn in the fall, I must plant more kernels in the spring.

. . . to understand that life always rewards me on the terms that I establish and if I never perform or deliver more than that for which I am paid, never will I have reason to demand or expect any additional gold.

. . . to always deliver more than is expected of me, whether at work, or play, or at home.

. . . to labor with enthusiasm and love, no matter what the task or hand may be, realizing that if I cannot secure happiness out of my work I will never know what real happiness is.

. . . to endure at my chosen work even after others have ceased their labor, for now I know that the angel of happiness and the pot of gold awaits me only at the end of the extra mile that still lies ahead.


For the rest of my life, this very special day, God help me. . .

. . . to set goals to be accomplished before the day has ended, for now I know that to drift aimlessly from one hour to the next leaves me with only one destination, the port of misery.

. . . to realize that no path to success is too long if I advance bravely and without undue hast, just as there are no honors too distant if I prepare myself for them now with patience.

. . . to never lose faith in a brighter tomorrow, for I know that if I continue to knock long enough and loud enough at the gate, I am certain to arouse someone.

. . . to repeatedly remind myself that success always has its price and that I must be willing to balance its joys and rewards against the precious piece of my life I must always exchange to achieve it.

. . . to hold fast to my dreams and my plans for a better life because if I relinquish them, although I still might exist, I will have ceased to live.


For the rest of my life, this very special day, God help me. . .

. . . to strive to fulfill the best that is within me, knowing that I have no obligation to attain great wealth or success, only the obligation to be true to the highest and best I can be.

. . . to never succumb to the fear of failing, because now I shall be looking up to the goals I have not yet reached rather than peering down at the pitfalls that always threaten me.

. . . to embrace adversity as a friend who will teach me far more about myself than any joyful run of success and good fortune.

. . . to remember that failures, even when they occur, are only guides to success, since every discovery of what is false will lead me to seek after what is true, and every experience teaches me some form of error that shall afterward be carefully avoided.

. . . to rejoice over what I have, little though it may be, always recalling the oft told tale of the man who was sobbing because he had no shoes until, one day, he met a man who had no feet.


For the rest of my life, this very special day, God help me . . .

. . . to accept myself as I am without every allowing my conscience or sense of duty to force me to live a life’s pattern designed solely for the benefit of others.

. . . to realize that I must never accept the praise and love of people as a measure of my personal worth, since my true value depends far more on how I feel about myself and how involved I am in the world outside myself.

. . . to resist the temptation to surpass the achievements of others, since this pathetic and yet common desire is no more than a sign of insecurity and weakness and I will never be me if I allow others to set my standards.

. . . to ignite all my actions, both at work and play, with constant sparks of enthusiasm so that my excitement and zeal at whatever I am doing will subdue all difficulties that might otherwise slow my progress.

. . . to remember that I must pay the price in time and energy in order to increase my worth, for only fools stand idly by and wait for success to arrive, and now I know that the only chance to start at the top is in digging a hole.


For the rest of my life, on this day of days, God please help me . . .

. . . to do unto others as I would have them do unto me, to give more of myself, every hour, than is expected, to set goals and hold fast to my dreams, to search for the good in every adversity that befalls me, to perform all my duties with enthusiasm, and love and, above all, to be myself.

Please help me to accomplish these goals, my special friend, so that I may become a rag picker of value, laboring in your name with renewed strength and wisdom to rescue others as you have rescued me. And above all, please remain close to me, through all of this day . . . ”

Simon, the self proclaimed rag-picker, set his life’s goal as helping human’s who found themselves on life’s refuse pile. This message was the distillation of his life’s wisdom, published in 1992 by Og Mandino as The Return of the Ragpicker.

I picked up his book for .25 cents at the local library sale last weekend. Mr. Simon’s words caught my attention. I felt his deep humility and desire to help humankind. He was 92 at his passing. He lamented what we were doing to our world in 1992 – yet he never gave up hope. No matter what is happening, never give up hope.
