Imagination and the Law of Success

Saturday, January 31st, 2009


Imagination
is a function and tool in the Law of Success. It is a function that has not been truly valued by many of us who use the Law of Success. The Genius of Creative Imagination is that one can ‘freely communicate with sources of knowledge not available through the ordinary rate of vibration of thought’ according to Napoleon Hill. His definition of genius is someone who can rise above the ordinary rate of vibratory thought through creative imagination and tap into region where one can find ideas and solutions beyond the ordinary.

The faculty of creative imagination is the direct link between the finite mind of man and Infinite Intelligence. All so-called revelations, referred to in the realm of religion, and all discoveries of basic or new principles in the field of invention, take place through the faculty of creative imagination,” says Napoleon Hill. In this principle of the Law of Success, Hill is talking of that small still voice, of ‘hunches” and flashes that often deliver some brilliant knowledge.

Roberto Assagioli stated that imagination used in a precise way to evoke and create images “is one of the most important and spontaneously active functions of the human psyche, both in its conscious and unconscious levels.” Jung and Assagioli listed imagination as one of six functions of humans: Thoughts, Feelings, sensations (the five senses), intuition, imagination, impulse-desire. The Myers-Briggs Indicator helps identify which functions are more developed with each person. Imagination is a vital tool of the Law of Success.

Why was imagination so important a function? Assagioli quote Charles Baudoin “Every image has in itself a motor-drive.” Assagioli went on to say “images and mental pictures tend to produce the physical condition and the external acts corresponding to them.” The use of the “ideal model” toward which to strive was one of his major tools for synthesis. Assagioli and Psychosynthesis have relied on the asset of imagination subtly using the Law of Success.


Imagination
according to Hill allows the mind to move to an exalted plane of THOUGHT, where it is receptive to ideas which can originate from outside the person. These ideas could come from the person’s own subconscious, from Infinite Intelligence, and from others as well. In this function, the Law of Success functions in a way to both impel and attract ideas and form.

Strengths and Success

Wednesday, January 28th, 2009


Strengths and Success
are related. How much do you know about your personal strengths, your individuality? How much do you cherish those strengths? Strength and Positive Psychology are oriented towards what you do right. In order to experience success, knowledge and appreciation of your strengths are vital.

We live in a negative society. Our parents often want us to “fit in” while we are growing up; schools want to deliver their core curricula, not nurturing our passions and uniqueness. When we go to work we are hired and then often need to change ourselves to fit the job, and are evaluated upon the areas that need to be improved. This fixation upon our weaknesses undermines our productivity, contributes to illnesses. To be successful, we need to focus on our strengths.

Positives are very necessary to our physical, emotional, and mental well-being. Being positive can increase your life by ten years. Being negative have make you ill and kill you. Positiveness increases your success. Negativity undermines your success. Positives build your self confidence.

How do you play to your strength? Identify your strengths is step one. Acknowledge your strengths is step two. Remind yourself of your strengths often; step three. Develop you strengths and use them more fully helps you flourish and be successful. If you are asked to speak to your five greatest weaknesses and your five greatest strengths, which could you do the fastest? I’m betting that you can easily identify your weaknesses.

Your mission today is to identify five personal strengths. Embrace them as part of your path to success. They are yours. Everyone needs at least five positive interactions for every negative interaction. That is the magic ratio. So it is up to you to begin making a list of your personal strengths. You need to add to it each day, and you need to remind yourself each evening of where you used your strengths during the day. As you value and appreciate your strengths, your success will increase. As you increase your awareness of your personal strengths, others will notice your success.

Some resources for you are the following books. They are all excellent. Click on the links to learn more.

Self Awareness

Sunday, January 11th, 2009

Self Awareness is vital. Our success, our joie de vivre, our fulfillment in life depends on our field of awareness, our state of mind, our state of consciousness. Our job is self awareness. At this moment where or who are we in this field of consciousness? Holding the awareness of this immediate perspective of consciousness and simultaneously remembering The Self is a huge job. Most of us don’t do it, or can’t do it yet.

Our awareness both expands and shrinks, depending upon our state of consciousness. If I feel scarcity, I contract. If I feel the awe of seeing the rosy, sun kissed top of the Olympic Peninsula Mountains on a crisp January morning, I expand and become more of who I am. I have parts of me that are driven, fearful and more contracted. I have parts of me that are creative, are philosophic, and have wisdom – those are more expansive.

When I meditate, and go to my witness self, and reach to my higher Self, I expand and include more of my consciousness, more of my awareness. Think of self as being a continuum which includes my dark self, my child selves, my adult self, all aspects of personality that have developed as I have grown, and, my Higher Self, my Soul. Where we reside on that continuum determines our vibration and what we attract.

We move from awareness to awareness, from point of consciousness to another point of consciousness often in reaction to external events. Some one finds fault with us or our work. Our own inner critic joins in, our child self whimpers. At that moment, our adult self hopefully will intervene, soothe, and remember that no one is perfect. From the perspective of Soul or Self, you are already perfect in your imperfections. From the consciousness inside the critic however, there is no such concept.

Psychosynthesis is a spiritual philosophy that teaches us self awareness and how to develop the capacity to observe and direct self so that we are not at the mercy of our reactions but a center of consciousness that makes choices about where and how we identify self. Staying connected to Source and Self is an act of consciousness and awareness.

Law of Pure Potentiality

Friday, January 09th, 2009

Law of Pure Potentiality is the first of Depak Chopra’s Seven Spiritual Laws of Success. He says “Our essential nature is one of pure potentiality.”

He believes that we are more than our bodies, our feelings, our mind, our personality, our soul. At its essence, he believes we are pure consciousness. With pure consciousness, we contain all the field of potentialities and infinite creativity.

Wattles who wrote the Science of Getting Rich, and Success, implies that there if Infinite Consciousness through out every atom and molecule of the universe.

The reason imagination is so very powerful, is that for a few moments, when we imagine, we go beyond our imagined limits, and touch into the vast repertoire of the universe – perhaps the consciousness of the Universe.

Anything you can imagine, you can achieve says Napoleon Hill and Abraham.

This spiritual essence that is within every atom of matter and within us some call God. Some call Soul. Some call Self. Deepak Chopra says. “When you discover your essential nature and know who you really are, in that knowing itself is the ability to fulfill any dream you have, because you are the eternal possibility, the immeasurable potential of all that was, is, and will be.”

So where does God stop and your consciousness begin? Deepak Chopra explains: “Underlying the infinite diversity of life is the unity of one all-pervasive spirit. There is no separation between you and this field of energy. This field of pure potentiality is your own Self. And the more you experience your true nature, the closer you are to the field of pure potentiality”.

As we begin to comprehend this vast field of potentiality that is within us and within the Universe, we begin to see how all is interconnected. We are a part of this vast field of awareness within the universe. We are part of the Great Field of all possibilities.

State of Mind

Monday, January 05th, 2009

State of Mind State of Being

Fundamental to the Law of Attraction and to the Law of Success is one’s state. It makes sense that you have different emotional states. When you are depressed, it feels very different than when you are happy. The experience of despair is quite opposite the state of vibrant expectancy of something good happening.

We each have the experience of many differing states. Each of those states has a different frequency. When you are optimistic, you are more likely to encounter others who are optimistic. When you are feeling victimized, you are apt to run into others who will be delighted to help you stay in that state. Like attracts like.

It is helpful is to know that these emotional states have a scale. Knowing the scale allows us to make movement in very tiny steps up the scale. We may not be able to move from depression to joy in one step, but we can move from depression to insecurity to anger. And from anger we can move to discouragement to doubt to overwhelment, frustration, pessimism, to boredom. From boredom, it is pretty simple to reach for contentment, even hope, then optimism, and eventually the expectancy of good things, eagerness, and happiness is not too far away. Each of these emotional “places” has their own vibration and frequency. See the post When You Forget for more information about the emotional scale.

Throughout these posts we have said that Faith is a state of mind. Optimism is a state of mind. Happiness is a state of Mind. Success is a state of mind. We habitually hang out in the state that is “normal” for us. A “state” is a frequency, a band of energy, a way of thinking, a state of consciousness, a vibratory frequency, a way of being if you will.

Scarcity consciousness is a state of being or a state of mind. Wealth consciousness is a state of being or a state of mind. They carry very different thoughts, beliefs, and therefore send out very differing vibratory frequencies – they send out very different energies.

Think of it this way. How do you respond when you are around someone who is pessimistic, and tell stories about their lives that portray themselves as the victim of poor luck? How do you respond when you spend time with someone who is upbeat, optimistic about a new project, who is looking forward to what happens next and believes that they make their own luck. You are responding to the “state” of the person. You are responding to the vibratory energy that is being emitted by that state. You are responding to their state of being.

If you have a visceral response to these states, doesn’t it make sense that the Universe and other people also have responses to these states? If you are in a victim state, you may feel some resonance with that person yourself. If you are tired of feeling like a victim, you may be repelled by seeing the victim state of being in another person. If you are in a victim state, you may be irritated by an exuberant person who is looking at the world with hope and expectancy.

Your state is absolutely all important to your getting what you want and need, whether it is success in love, relationships, money, new jobs, fulfillment, hobbies, friendships, athletics, or spiritual development.

Recognizing that you have different state of awareness or beingness, or consciousness, or states of emotions, or states of mind – whatever fits for you – is essential. When you recognize that you have different states you have more options. You can accept that these are all you – without judgment, and again you have more options.

When you begin to recognize which state you are in, you can begin to make choices about whether or not you want to continue in that state. Each state has tell tale signs. When I get really irritable and grouchy and want to lash out, I know that my victim state has taken command and that I really am irritated with the Universe (actually myself).

If I remember soon enough, I will be grateful that I am in an irritable state, because I have far more energy available than when I am depressed, because it is higher up on the emotional scale. When I am irritated I have more capacity for movement.

Then I do some tapping (EFT) or some prayer or some meditation, or some journaling, or any other numerous ways to move from that state to one where I am happier and more able to relax into the state of being of my choice.

We’ll talk more about state of mind and state of being. For now thanks for stopping by.
