There is Only One Power

From Telepsychics: Tapping Your Hidden Subconscious Powers by Joseph Murphy:

Telepsychics: Tapping Your Hidden Subconscious PowersThe most important truth you can learn is that there is only one power.  This power is omnipresent and, being thus, it must be within you - the very life of you.  When you use this power constructively and harmoniously and according to its inner nature, men call it God, or good.  When you use this power within negatively or destructively, men call it by such names as devil, satan, evil, hell, misfortune, etc.  Be honest with yourself and as yourself this simple question: "How am I using the power within me?" and right there you have the answer to your own problem. It is as simple as that.

I read Telepsychics cover to cover yesterday.  Those of us who study The Law of Attraction know it is always present and always working.  The first book I ever read on the subject was The Power of Your Subconscious Mind  which is another incredible book by Joseph Murphy.  Knowing The Law and applying The Law are two different things though.  In each and every book I read on the subject I find more and more inspiring ways of looking at life and the power of God.

Leave a comment and share what book(s) you have found real inspiration in.

Who is That Whispering to You?

Have you ever noticed when you begin to work on something new to improve your life, whether it's starting to use a new affirmation or making a lifestyle change, like going on a new diet, a new energy seems to takeover and things just seem to be going your way.  There you are just skipping along all happy go lucky when in strolls "the devil".  Negative thoughts begin to bombard you, the feelings of enthusiasm soon turn to doubt and your mood goes from high to low in no time flat.

That devil, that seeks to challenge your good intentions, is merely a part of your subconscious mind.  A part that is resisting change and when "the devil" starts to whisper his fallacious statements to you, you know you are on the right track and in the process of building a new beliefs to replace the old ones. 

This is the time in the process of creating a better life that it's most important to press on and not give in to those old thought patterns. Whenever that devil whispers to you, say to yourself, cancel, cancel, cancel.  Then immediately think of anything at all that makes you happy.  Don't let him settle in and make himself at home, he's not welcome.

Counting Your Blessings & Changing Your Focus

Our perception of the world around us creates the world we live in. When we focus on the negative we only give it energy to grow and even invade other areas of our life. You might be surprised to find that you have so many wonderful things that occur in your life daily, that you have overlooked by concentrating on the negative.

For changing your focus I recommend simply journaling the treasures found in everyday life. You don't even need a fancy new journal, a plain spiral notebook will work just fine.

What kind of things should you write down daily? Anything good!

Ganesh Pocket Leather Journal w/ Side Button Closure- Receiving a compliment
- Having someone hold the door for you.
- A phone call from a friend
- Something funny one of your kids said
- A smooth commute to work
- Finding or receiving money in any amount
- Gifts and unexpected nice surprises

It doesn't matter as long as you view it as something good. When you shift your focus to the good you aren't just looking at life different, you are raising the positive energy that surrounds you and in turn will attract more blessings each and everyday.

If I Could Be Like Mike

"I've missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I've lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I've been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I've failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed." - Michael Jordan

I posted that quote yesterday on The Seed and The Harvest Facebook Fanpage. I found it very inspiring. Some think of people, like Michael Jordan, of just being successful and don't always register all the hard work and failures that went into the making of a champion. It wasn't overnight or instant. Yes, God blessed him with a natural ability but he choose to polish that talent and to overcome failures. That quote says to me, that if you want to be successful, to stay the course and don't let setbacks stop you from your ultimate goal.

Being Poor Stinks!

"Poverty is a form of hell caused by man's blindness to God's unlimited good for him." - The Dynamic Laws of Prosperity Catherine Ponder

Some people would say that while poverty might be considered hell it's easy, yet tons of self help books would tell you that being rich is easy.  I believe it's just as easy to manifest wealth and abundance as it is to manifest poverty and lack.

The difference is only a mindset away.  You'll notice that people that live in lack dwell on lack.  While those that live in wealth think at the opposite end of the spectrum.  And yes there are those in the middle that have a bit of both going on in general they think positive thoughts but at times let worries carry them down the wrong path.

Let's imagine poverty being a dirty diaper, I know that sounds silly but bare with me.  Here you are with this dirty stinky diaper, aka poverty, and you think about this diaper all the time, you carry it around and show it to your friends saying, "See, see how much it just stinks!" and think "I wish I could get rid of this thing." But, you tote it around some more.  Now how much sense does that make?  Sure they'll be stinky diapers but that doesn't mean that you hold on to them, carry it around with you all day, tuck it in next to you at night, and show it to everyone you cross paths with.

It's time to dispose of negative thoughts, they just plain stink! As you become more aware of your thinking the more subtle thoughts of lack will jump out at you, and it will be easier to see where the lack is coming from in your life.

One of my wow moments happened recently when I was organizing our game room.  I was thinking to myself we need some type of shelving in here, something nice to look at but durable to hold up to the kids and their friends.  That by itself would have been a nice enough thought but nope!  The thought that followed was but I just don't have the money right now.  As soon as that thought crossed my mind lights and bells went off.  I quickly canceled the last thought and went back to visualizing what I wanted.

It's those simple thoughts that can get in our way.  We plant a seed and not two seconds later dig it up.  If that happens to you replant you seed and walk away.

I would love to hear you thoughts please leave a comment or come join The Seed and The Harvest Metaphysical Community where you can learn and share more about The Law of Attraction.
