Week 16**KINDNESS**

This week has been my last week of catch up, as I completed week 14, 15, and 16. I am staying the course, I persist and I WIN. One of the things that I really haven’t fully immersed myself in is the shapes. I have them on my dream board, POA card and SERVICE card, and all of my ‘flash cards’ but not in my DMP. I just ‘hadn’t gotten around to it.’ no hadn’t made it important enough to do. I was sitting with our newest employee and she is here to be a floater, and to know every employees job, so that when someone takes a vacation, there is someone to cover their tasks and you don’t come home to a mountain. We were sitting at my desk and I was trying to explain how and why I do what I do on one of my tasks. and I was switching between red, black, and blue ink. and it wasn’t just to change the colour, but RED was for this, BLUE for this, and BLACK for this. and I was apologizing as I said to her I knew it was a little confusing and that I am just really colour coded. I literally stopped mid word on coded and felt like someone had smacked me in the back of a head with a foam bat. I have a package of 12 colour highlighters, and I have 5 coloures pens….but I can’t figure out why I need coloured shapes in my DMP. Things seem clear, and that you are getting it or, you ‘know better’ HAHAHAHA! again, this isn’t Mark’s first Rodeo…so why is it that we keep thinking that we have a better way to invent the wheel. It was a real a-ha moment for me, and really got me back focused on the basics.

Franklin’s Makeover

What a FABULOUS exercise! I admit that I have done a terrible job keeping track of how many times I am seeing this around me, but I am surprised by how much I am being the observer. Last week was Self Control, and even with the crazy focus on Kindness, I was constantly noticing when I was, or was not utilizing self control. I enjoyed looking for kindness, as a lot of the time…I was saying more ‘that wasn’t very kind’ and again; I realized that I was not being observant to the good, I was being blindsided but the negative. With this week being Kindness based, I took a real HARD go at the mental diet again. Although I restarted it 4 or 5 times one morning just in drive thru alone! I did notice now often I am catching myself now, and how often I am derailing those thoughts before I am hitting 7 seconds, or a half hour rant later. I may not have a full day, opinion and negative free, but the joy is certainly raising and I am feeling better every day about who I am, and seeing a CLEARER mental picture every day of WHO I intend to be.

The power to create depends entirely upon spiritual power; there are three steps, idealization, visualization and materialization. Every captain of industry depends upon this power exclusively. In an article in Everybody’s Magazine, Henry M. Flagler, the Standard Oil multi-millionaire, admitted that the secret of his success was his power to see a thing in its completeness. The following conversation with the reporter shows his power of idealization, concentration and visualization, all spiritual powers: “Did you actually vision to yourself the whole thing? I mean, did you, or could you, really close your eyes and see the tracks? And the trains running? And hear the whistles blowing? Did you go as far as that?” “Yes.” “How clearly?” “Very clearly.” 16:8-9 -Haanel

We encourage our children to use their imagination and to create wonderful experienced and adventures in their head, but at what point do we stop using those tremendous powers? Why do we stop dreaming and seeing a better reality? How is it that we lose the ability to hold an image or believe in our mind?

Whatever enters the mind through the senses or the objective mind will impress the mind and result in a mental image which will become a pattern for the creative energies. These experiences are largely the result of environment, chance, past thinking and other forms of negative thought, and must be subjected to careful analysis before being entertained. On the other hand, we can form our own mental images, through our own interior processes of thought regardless of the thoughts of others, regardless of exterior conditions, regardless of environment of every kind, and it is by the exercise of this power that we can control our own destiny, body, mind and soul.16:15 -Haanel

The Dreamers have the real control, for in our world within we control what we allow to affect us. It is OUR Belief; whether built on our own thought or someone else’s opinions, it is what WE have ALLOWED ourselves to believe. We can think of anything and have anything and have ANY life we wish if we are only to believe it and TRULY TRULY hold on to this ideal.

And finally, the vitality depends upon the feeling with which the thought is impregnated. If the thought is constructive, it will possess vitality; it will have life, it will grow, develop, expand, it will be creative; it will attract to itself everything necessary for its complete development. If the thought is destructive, it will have within itself the germ of its own dissolution; it will die, but in the process of dying, it will bring sickness, disease, and every other form of discord. 16:21-22 -Haanel

Since we know that the fabric of our mind creates everything ahead of us, we know that we must ONLY entertain positive, abundant and harmonious thoughts, and a negative t

Visualization must, of course, be directed by the will; we are to visualize exactly what we want; we must be careful not to let the imagination run riot. Imagination is a good servant but a poor master, and unless it is controlled it may easily lead us into all kinds of speculations and conclusions which have no basis or foundation of fact whatever. Every kind of plausible opinion is liable to be accepted without any analytical examination and the inevitable result is mental chaos. 16:35 -Haanel

We know that we must trust and keep vigilant the Gatekeeper of our world within. Let the Creativity run, but feed it constructive and positive energy, guiding the dreams straight and toward fruition. ‘Every kind of plausible opinion is liable to be accepted without any analytical examination and the inevitable result is mental chaos.’ Let us maintain our control of our future, our souls, and world.

Peace be the Journey

Week 15-Kicker Cards

Keep flipping and flipping some more. This is one area that I was behind in so I started with the minimum 30, and then added 30, and then he said add another 30…well at this time I was reading you can’t get the maximum by doing the minimum work! …so I counted out 60 index cards into a pile and went at them. I was 2 weeks behind when I started the gratitude cards so I sat down and wrote out 21 (one week) to at least get me moving forward and then started with three a day. I was having more trouble with the kicker cards though. I feel like I live such a secluded life some days, that I just go to work and back, and only interact with those few people then I come home and study to catch up…I don’t really interact with people. Part of it, is that I just wasn’t open and observant to what was happening around me. I enjoy the flipping, hard to get more then a couple cards without smiling and feeling a couple inches taller.

All conditions and experiences that come to us do so for our benefit. Difficulties and obstacles will continue to come until we absorb their wisdom and gather from them the essentials of further growth. That we reap what we sow is mathematically exact. We gain permanent strength exactly to the extent of the effort required to overcome difficulties. 15:7-8  -Haanel

Well thanks a bunch Mr. Haanel! how true?!? If we aren’t going to learn from life’s circumstances, then life (universe) is just going to keep throwing it our way, how can we move forward of we aren’t even learning the basics? we need to open up and be the observer, why are the same things happening over and over? Why is it that I am continuing to fail over and over. What am I focusing on that is not in vibration with the world or dream I intend to keep.

We know that the Universal Thought has for its goal the creation of form, and we know that the individual thought is likewise forever attempting to express itself in form, and we know that the word is a thought form, and a sentence is a combination of thought forms, therefore, if we wish our ideal to be beautiful or strong, we must see that the words out of which this temple will eventually be created are exact, that they are put together carefully, because accuracy in building words and sentences is the highest form of architecture in civilization and is a passport to success. 15:20-Haanel

Over and over we are being shown that we are to be CAREFUL of the thoughts we keep and the words we use. This is a reflection of us! we need to be CLEAR and PRECISE with our vision and dream.

Words may become mental places that will live forever, or they may become shacks which the first breeze will carry away. They may delight the eye as well as the ear; they may contain all knowledge; in them we find the history of the past as well as the hope of the future; they are living messengers from which every human and superhuman activity is born.15:22 -Haanel

We always seem to focus on the negative side of things, why there isn’t a better this, or a faster this, or why they can’t just do things this way.

There is a principle of Mathematics, but none of error; there is a principle of health, but none of disease; there is a principle of truth, but none of dishonesty; there is a principle of light, but none of darkness, and there is a principle of abundance, but none of poverty. How shall we know that this is true? Because if we apply the principle of Mathematics correctly we shall be certain of our results. Where there is health there will be no disease. If we know the Truth we cannot be deceived by error. If we let in light there can be no darkness, and where there is abundance there can be no poverty. 15:24-25 -Haanel

This really made me sit and think the first time I read it. There is no principle of error, or disease or dishonesty, or poverty….these are not things to focus or study on. KNOW the TRUTH! KNOW ABUNDANCE!!! KNOW LIGHT!! Focus on these, and there will be nothing else for you to worry.

Think truly, and thy thoughts Shall the world’s famine feed; Speak truly, and each word of thine Shall be a fruitful seed; Live truly, and thy life shall be A great and noble creed.

Cool Runnings

I picked Cool Runnings and Rudy as my choices for movie watching. I was unable to get a copy of Rudy yet, but I watched Cool Runnings on Netflix

DMP (Definite Major Purpose)

Derice Bannock had an incredibly clear DMP he KNEW beyond a shadow of a doubt that “He was BORN to be an Olympian.” Derice practiced, dreamed, focused, and put all of his focus and energy into this believe and dream. He didn’t have a goal of being an Olympian, but he was BORN to be one. Every fiber of his being working together to one end result.

PMA (Positive mental attitude)

He was born to run, driven, and Persistent!!!He knew that he was an olympian, and he saw himself as one everyday.

POA (Plan of Action)

Derice was GOING to make this happen!!! He BELIEVED without a shadow of a doubt that they were going to be the FIRST Jamaican Bobsled team.

First he had to convince a man that had given up on everything, especially himself, to reach inside and take a chance on something he didn’t want to do, had no believe in, and was the FARTHEST thing from his mind.

Second …he needed a team! On an island of sun and sand, he needed to convince 3 people that hey wanted to push a speeding bullet down a shute of ice.

Thirdly they had to find money to GET themselves to Canada as NO ONE believed in them or wanted to back them!!

Fourth they needed a Sled

Fifth, they had to make qualifying time

Sixth, the Olympic Alliance committee kicked them out.

Derice literally harassed the coach to help them, NO didn’t mean anything to him, it just meant, try another attempt. Even when he got a room full of prospects and the coach scared them all away with the ‘joys’ of a bobsled, Derice was’t going to be brought down! NO WAS NOT AN OPTION. He did not comprehend the word quit or give up. He takes 4 people, 3 who want to kill each other; and says here’s your team! The Jamaican Olympic program wasn’t about to sponsor or support an island winter sport; in fact NO ONE wanted to believe or back them. They went business to business and pitched their idea. Sanka did some street music and Yul Brenner held arm wrestling competitions. Biggest donation came from Junior selling his pristine car and donated every dollar to the cause. They DID get to Canada, and they did survive the temperature shock!! Coach Blitzer meets an old teammate and swings them a half busted sled for them to try and use. Every step of the way they are made a laughing stock, but not for ONE second do they loose sight and give up. The committee shortens the Qualifying Time, and they JUST slip under, Committee decided to unjustly kick them out over personal issues; and Irv goes back to fight for them. They NEVER said DIE, then NEVER Said SURRENDER. QUIT was literally NOT in their vocabulary at all.

Even when they made their last race, and the unforeseen circumstances resulting in a bolt coming loose and them loosing control in one of the turns; even after an unbelievable crash…they still were not willing to throw in the towel. THEY HAD TO FINISH THE RACE!!! As those four men carried their sled across the finish line; they proved to everyone , and themselves, they they were winners! and they were OLYMPIANS! and they had done EVERYTHING that they set out to do

MMA

Their Alliance wan’t all love in the beginning but it grew into a support group of true friends who would support ANY one of them, through anything!!!

Derice, Sanka, Yul Brenner, Junior, and Irv Blitzer (coach)

14-The Power of Prayer

I am truly blessed to be a part of a secret sister program in our church. It started over 15 years ago, and when I moved away from the college (home) the program was struggling so I staying in it, and helped promote it at the beginning of each year. Well 14 years after I moved away I am still a part of the program, with my mothers help. After Christmas we have our reveal get together in the beginning of January, as lives are slowing down more and hopefully more people will be free to get together. This year my girlfriend was asked to do the worship. She got up and told a story that I haven’t thought about in probably almost 30 years. Now as soon as she started talking, I ‘knew’ she was going to talk about when Brody her brother got hurt, and I got chills. I realized I never knew the full story. When Holly was 5 they lived in a place with an unfinished basement; and they were old army barracks. When you went down the stairs to the basement they were slats of 2x4s and a 2×2 for a railing. Being 6, Holly had only one job! It was her job to close the gate at the top of the stairs so her 16 month old brother, who incessantly followed her everywhere, would not get hurt. So Auntie Sandra had sent Holly to go get something in the basement, and as she got half way down she remembered the gate and as she turned to go back up, she was he brother try to take the first step down and fall 9 feet off the stairs to the right and land directly on his head on the concrete. Brody didn’t make a sound or a movement, being 6, Holly yelled at mom, “Brody did it again.” Auntie Sandra came down the stairs and grabbed Brody’s non responsive body and just held him and rocked for about half an hour before she realized that she had to call for help. They took Brody to the hospital and he was rushed an hour away to Edmonton Hospital, as his head was twice the size, black and blue, and they were sure he wouldn’t make the night. That night they went to our church and begged for prayers. Our Church prayed non stop!! As Uncle Ron and Auntie Sandra drove up to Edmonton to say their goodbyes the next morning, everyone continued to pray. as Uncle Ron walked into Brody’s room, Brody sat up, and said ‘hi dad!’ Ron took his glove off and threw it at Brody and he through it back.

This child was surely on deaths door, if not than permanent brain and physical damage, yet NO DAMAGE!!! To be truthful everything Brody touches seems to have the Midas touch. Now why do I share this heart wrenching and amazing miraculous story? Because escaping all odds, this boys should be dead, with the ONLY explainable reason being HUNDREDS of people focused on the outcome, and the healing power!

A scientific understanding of this principle will explain the wonderful results which are secured through the power of prayer. The results which are secured in this way are not brought about by any special dispensations of providence, but on the contrary, they are the result of the operation of a perfectly natural law. There is, therefore, nothing either religious or mysterious about it. 14:23 -Haanel

But the thought must be clear cut, steady, fixed, definite, unchangeable; you cannot take one step forward and two steps backward, neither can you spend twenty or thirty years of your life building up negative conditions as the result of negative thoughts, and then expect to see them all melt away as the result of fifteen or twenty minutes of right thinking. If you enter into the discipline necessary to bring about a radical change in your life, you must do so deliberately, after giving the matter careful thought and full consideration, and then you must allow nothing to interfere with your decision. 14:26-27 -Haanel

May God be with you and whatever burdens are on our heart and soul. Turn them over to the Master Teacher, and know that all things work together for him that loves the Lord. See you with your Crown of Jewels Sitting by the tree of life

Peace be the Journey

Week 14 -The struggle

Christmas at my parents, was so peaceful this year. It was just my boyfriend and parents, as my brother and family were not able to make it, really gave me time to reflect on how much chaos it normally entails. There was no webby this week, and unlike Thanksgiving where I slowly started to fall off the cart,  I have been going full force forward. I have been trying to catch up and have really overloaded my reading so that I can continue to grow, catch up, and make the most of the rest of the course. I have been reading Haanel’s week 11, 12, and 13. I even got into the members alliance area to share a bit of my struggle with doing well for 2 months and then starting to struggle and fight the ways. I felt like a failure! You know every time Mark tells us to do something, it is because he has done this before, he KNOWS what he is doing, and he know how EVERY SINGLE DIFFERENT person learns differently!!!

SO FOR CRYING OUT LOUD; WHY DO WE JUST NOT LISTEN TO HIM?!?!

I haven’t made excellent use of the members alliances area. I have gone in a little bit, kind of like a new person showing up at church, and kind of just sticking your head in the door and being like, oh just looking… For heavens sakes MAN!!! Just do the work!!!! it compounds, and while you may not feel the need to reach out in the beginning, you might just have the right words for someone else; and when you DO need that extra boost you know where to go. I was really reaching out for a bit of motivation as I was coming back into this full force like the fury of the Canadian Prairie winter. I shared how I hadn’t been faithful with the readings, or anything really, and how I was trying to get back into the saddle. I hadn’t even TOUCHED OG scroll 3 to speak of, and all these comments about persistence came pouring out. For some reason; when we get all covered in the fear, doubt, and resentment; and let them pull us down to the dark corner, we forget that we are NOT ALONE!!! One comment made me realize that this individual was dealing with the exact same thing, and I was sure that many others were as well, just maybe not quite as vocal. I felt like I was lifted stories out of the basement to the top floor, and shown. YOU ARE AMAZING! and I never gave up!

Earl Nightingale’s Strangest Secret is REALLY where my journey in discovery started. I actually have the strangest secret downloaded on my phone, and I have started to make a habit of trying to put it on as I get in the car and drive to work. What a beautiful way to start my day!

I was NOT delivered unto this world in defeat, nor does failure course in my veins. I am NOT a sheep waiting to be prodded by my shepherd. I am a LION and I REFUSE to TALK, to WALK, to SLEEP with the SHEEP. I will hear NOT those who weep and complain, for their disease is CONTAGIOS. Let them JOIN the sheep. The slaughterhouse of failure is NOT my destiny… -OG Mandino (Scroll 3)

I LOVE this part of the scroll, and it EMPOWERS my soul every time I read it. I am pretty sure this is the more enthusiastic I read anything. It PUMPS ME UP!!!! I AM WHOLE, PERFECT, STRONG, POWERFUL, LOVING, HARMONIOUS, and HAPPY!!

The prizes of life are at the end of each journey, not near the beginning; and it is not given to me to know how many steps are necessary in order to reach my goal. Failure I may still encounter at the thousandth step, yet success hides behind the next bend in the road. Never will I know how close it lies unless I turn the corner. -OG Mandino (Scroll 3)

Why is it that we think/feel that we deserve a free ride? That we need not put any work towards our success and happiness? Everything that has gotten society to where were are today was incredulously hard work! Why is it that society as a whole doesn’t want to dig in and push forward, nose to the grind stone, trying our BEST to be the BEST version of ourselves.

I will never consider defeat and I will remove from my vocabulary such words and phrases as quit, cannot, unable, impossible, out of the question, improbable, failure, unworkable, hopeless, and retreat; for they are the words of fools. I will avoid despair but if this disease of the mind should infect me then I will work on in despair. I will toil and I will endure. I will ignore the obstacles at my feet and keep mine eyes on the goals above my head, for I know that where dry desert ends, green grass grows.

As I have been repeating this over and over this week it has really been like a NEON sign, and every time I try to say can’t, or not able, or impossible I catch myself and think, is it really impossible? or am I being cranky because it will cause a little bit of hard work? We know it is all mental, it is all how we think, so why are we talking in just negative tones? Why are we allowing our vibration to be lowered with the negativity, doubt, and fear?

Week 13-Law of Substitution/Dual Thought

This was Christmas at the in-laws this weekend, and I had been terribly Sick!! So I was taking it pretty easy, no sweets, no alcohol; basically nothing that would in anyway affect my system or my mood. I was just exhausted and drained. My boyfriend had been lightly drinking all day, and come 10 pm, was getting a little short with the kids as they were getting ready to leave. One thing led to another and he got up very upset and went to the other room. I tried to talk to him a bit, but there wasn’t much interest in talking at that point. I got so upset through my old peptides reacting that I was furious with him, and the way he was acting. I wound up stressing myself into more of a headache and a migraine, so I went to lie down in another room where there was no one, traffic, or lights. as I sat there trying to focus on healing and peace. I was trying to calm myself down and stop rehashing it all in my head. as I was laying there fuming at ‘him’ (HA! little did I think things through); it was like a light switch turned on, and I instantly, consciously thought about the most peaceful and beautiful memory I have to reflect upon, and it was like a weight was lifted off my head and my heart in seconds. I was blown away. I almost started crying as the INSTANT realization that this was working, even with my two and a half weeks off, and only just trying to focus myself back to getting on track, and it just showed to me how important that foundation is! How the little repetitions really add up to HUGE change ❤

This weeks webinar Mark touched base on how people fall out in the third month, and how they just stop doing the daily tasks, and had 3 old members come and speak…would you believe that I slept through this webinar? I woke up at quarter to 3…My old blueprint was working overtime trying to get me to give up this ‘silly attempt’ and let go. I will LET GO; but I will let go of the OLD BLUEPRINT and PEPTIDES!! I even got mad at myself for sleeping in. When I rewatched the webby when it was posted, I was blown away by how much this webinar was intended to keep me in an obvious check of myself daily, to keep to the high road, and stay the path.

 

If then, we find that certain persons seem to possess unusual power, what are we to conclude? First, we may say, it is not so, which is simply an acknowledgment of our lack of information because every honest investigator admits that there are many strange and previously unaccountable phenomena constantly taking place. Those, however, who become acquainted with the creative power of thought, will no longer consider them unaccountable. Second, we may say that they are the result of supernatural interference, but a scientific understanding of Natural Laws will convince us that there is nothing supernatural. Every phenomenon is the result of an accurate definite cause, and the cause is an immutable law or principle, which operates with invariable precision, whether the law is put into operation consciously or unconsciously. Third, we may say that we are on “forbidden ground,” that there are some things which we should not know. This objection was used against every advance in human knowledge. Every individual who ever advanced a new idea, whether a Columbus, a Darwin, a Galileo, a Fulton or an Emerson, was subjected to ridicule or persecution; so that this objection should receive no serious consideration; but, on the contrary, we should carefully consider every fact which is brought to our attention; by doing this we will more readily ascertain the law upon which it is based. 13: 12-14 -Haanel

It isn’t mystical unseen powers, but natural law! Immutable, tangible law. This MOST CERTAINLY should be known!!! We should shout from the top of every mountain and rooftop! YOU!!!! YOU!!! are in COMPLETE control of your future and your life! YOU are the great creator!

Thought will bring about conditions in correspondence with the predominant mental attitude. Therefore, if we fear disaster, as fear is a powerful form of thought, disaster will be the certain result of our thinking. It is this form of thought which frequently sweeps away the result of many years of toil and effort. 13:16 -Haanel

Once again, it is about our PREDOMINANT mental attitude, not our reading for an hour a day (YES IT HELPS!!! and a START!!) But you cannot spout venom for 23 hours a day and read Haanel and Hill for an hour and expect a rose garden, you are still going to get a weed patch, but there might be a couple flowers poking through. We have to dwell on being a better us EVERY waking minute. We must WILL to be better and really truly truly wish it. So that when we start being opinionated or rude, or even mean; that 1 out of every 10 times we catch ourselves, and then it becomes 2 out of every 10, then 3, 4, 7….and all of a sudden we look in the mirror and that gal (or guy) staring back at us is smiling; as we truly HAVE been persistent, and we have WON! What then shall we think about?

What, then, is the proper method of procedure? What are we to think in order to secure what we really desire? What you and I desire, what we all desire, what every one is seeking, is Happiness and Harmony. If we can be truly happy we shall have everything the world can give. If we are happy ourselves we can make others happy. 13:18 -Haanel

HARMONIOUS and HAPPY THOUGHTS

In the first place, we must put our knowledge into practice. Nothing can be accomplished in any other way. The athlete may read books and lessons on physical training all his life, but unless he begins to give out strength by actual work he will never receive any strength; he will eventually get exactly what he gives; but he will have to give it first. It is exactly the same with us; we will get exactly what we give, but we shall have to give it first. It will then return to us many fold, and the giving is simply a mental process, because thoughts are causes and conditions are effects; therefore in giving thoughts of courage, inspiration, health or help of any kind we are setting causes in motion which will bring about their effect. 13:22 -Haanel

Practice makes perfect right? I mean we practice our musical talents, reading, writing, work skills, and athletics, there is no difference in life. We must work to be OUR BEST; and add to a better world. BE HAPPY and project LOVE, JOY, and AFFLUENCE; everywhere you go

We have found that everything we get comes to us by the Law of Attraction. A happy thought cannot exist in an unhappy consciousness; therefore the consciousness must change, and, as the consciousness changes, all conditions necessary to meet the changed consciousness must gradually change, in order to meet the requirements of the new situation. 13:24 -Haanel

Small steps rooting new causes and effects.

27. When this tremendous fact begins to permeate your consciousness, when you really come into a realization of the fact that you (not your body, but the Ego), the “I,” the spirit which thinks is an integral part of the great whole, that it is the same in substance, in quality, in kind, that the Creator could create nothing different from Himself, you will also be able to say, “The Father and I are one” and you will come into an understanding of the beauty, the grandeur, the transcendental opportunities which have been placed at your disposal. 13:27 -Haanel

We are one, and we are separated only by degree and understanding. We must our mind, and free it of all inharmonious thoughts and feelings. We must let go of all resentment, or ill thoughts, no matter how justified.

To access the Divine, and connect the subconscious to the Omnipotent, Omniscient, and  Omnipresent creator we must forgive everyone and ANYONE to clear the channel. There can be no connection to the Divine Mind where anger or resentment against a brother or sister, justified or not, exists

~The Law of Forgiveness~

One of my hardest laws I struggle with, and one of my main focus, resentment is no form of love.

Peace be the Journey

 

Week 12 – Thought impregnated with Love

This power to think is common to all. Man is, because he thinks. Man’s power to think is infinite, consequently his creative power is unlimited.

We know that thought is building for us the thing we think of and actually bringing it nearer, yet we find it difficult to banish fear, anxiety or discouragement, all of which are powerful thought forces, and which continually send the things we desire further away, so that it is often one step forward and two steps backward.

The only way to keep from going backward is to keep going forward. Eternal vigilance is the price of success. There are three steps, and each one is absolutely essential. You must first have the knowledge of your power; second, the courage to dare; third, the faith to do. 12:2-4 -Haanel

Marcus Aurelius said, Man is what he thinks about! We have this incredible power and can do anything with it, so if we know this, and we know that we are in control…then why the fear, anxiety, and discouragement? I mean certainly most people do not realize the potential they have resting like a sleeping giant inside them. we must persist and continue to persist; regardless of the day past.

KNOW that you have this power and ability to control it

Have the COURAGE to dare to dream, and dare to use it

FAITH!! You must hold the faith to your heart, and mind knowing that it WILL be and there is no other option for things but to develop and move forward in accordance to the plans you have laid out for it

Of course, worry, fear, and all negative thoughts produce a crop after their kind; those who harbor thoughts of this kind must inevitably reap what they have sown.

12:11 -Haanell

That which you sew, so shall you reap. Our mind does not care what we put its tremendous power to, that is in our control. We must protect it and guard it with happy and harmonious thoughts. If we plant negativity, it will have no choice but to multiply it and return it to you in full abundance. So be Kind, patient, considerate, happy, and harmonious. Plant the seed of Joy and Love and have those returned to you in fantastic abundance.

It is the combination of Thought and Love which forms the irresistible force, called the law of attraction. All natural laws are irresistible, the law of Gravitation, or Electricity, or any other law operates with mathematical exactitude. There is no variation; it is only the channel of distribution which may be imperfect. If a bridge falls, we do not attribute the collapse to any variation of the law of gravitation. If a light fails us, we do not conclude that the laws governing electricity cannot be depended upon, and if the law of attraction seems to be imperfectly demonstrated by an inexperienced or uninformed person, we are not to conclude that the greatest and most infallible law upon which the entire system of creation depends has been suspended. We should rather conclude that a little more understanding of the law is required, for the same reason that a correct solution of a difficult problem in Mathematics is not always readily and easily obtained. 12:21 -Haanel

This passage really resonated with me this week…Have you ever dropped something and blamed gravity for it? of course not, and when the blender stops working, it is not the Electricity that has failed, but the appliance. The Laws of nature are always there. They are always working! This is no different with the law of attraction. If we are not focusing on love, kindness, and abundance, and our life takes a nasty dip downward, I do not see that the law of attraction has brought to me EXACTLY what I have put my energy into. Be of light, and share your light throughout the earth.

Now realize your unity with omnipotence; get into touch with this power, come into a deep and vital understanding, appreciation, and realization of the fact that your ability to think is your ability to act upon the Universal Mind, and bring it into manifestation, realize that it will meet any and every requirement; that you have exactly the same potential ability which any individual ever did have or ever will have, because each is but an expression or manifestation of the One, all are parts of the whole, there is no difference in kind or quality, the only difference being one of degree.

Week 11-catch-up

As I spent week 14 trying to get everything back on track, I really realized how much I wanted this. No old blueprint or cracked out peptides were going to win this time. I have half completed so many projects over my life, and I DO NOT HAVE TIME TO DO IT OVER!!!

In part 7 Haanel talks about how we are drawn to colour, and how it connects in the simplest form with regards to EVERYTHING that we wish for and want. Our desires, needs, whatever is focused on will be drawn in.

As the eye seeks and receives satisfaction from colors complementary to those which are given, so does need, want and desire, in the largest sense, induce, guide and determine action. 11:7 -Haanel

We need to build a vision of what we want, we need to focus on it, and think relentlessly about it. For we know that we have the ability to achieve our greatest wishes. It has been stated by wise men after wise men. In section 17, Haanel reminds us …

This conception is also elaborated by Swedenborg in his doctrine of correspondences; and a still greater teacher has said, “What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.” (Mark 11:24) The difference of the tenses in this passage is remarkable. 11:17 -Haanel

What things SOEVER YOU DESIRE, WHEN ye PRAY, BELIEVE that ye RECEIVE them, and ye SHALL have them , how many more ways does it need to be said! Pray, Believe, and RECEIVE!!

 

The truth must be told to each generation and to every people in new and different terms, so that when the Great Teacher said — “Believe that ye receive and ye shall receive” or, when Paul said — “Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen” or, when modern science says — “The law of attraction is the law by which thought correlates with its object”, each statement when subjected to analysis, is found to contain exactly the same truth. The only difference being in the form of presentation. 11:25 -Haanel

Religion and science together agree on this one. Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

For your exercise this week, concentrate on the quotation taken from the Bible, “Whatsoever things ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them and ye shall have them”; notice that there is no limitation, “Whatsoever things” is very definite and implies that the only limitation which is placed upon us in our ability to think, to be equal to the occasion, to rise to the emergency, to remember that Faith is not a shadow, but a substance, “the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.”

7:35 Haanel

We have all of the power inside our mind. we just have to decide what we want to focus this incredible power on.

 

Week 12- Again there was no week 12

I had a massive fight with my old blueprint, which was so difficult for me. I mean things should be getting easier not HARDER! I ‘wanted’ to do the daily tasks, and I would sometimes think about doing them, but every fiber of my body shouted NO! I DON’T WANT TO. It was overwhelming and almost to much to bear.
