A Faithful Way to Bring Great Results

June 24, 2020

In my study of the power of the mind, I have read many great books. There are some that I have re-read several times. One I am re-reading now is “The Power of the Subconscious Mind” by Joseph Murphy. If you haven’t read this book, and you are seeking powerful new knowledge about the power of your mind, I strongly suggest getting a hold of this book.

As I was reading the book today, an excellent reminder stood out that I feel compelled to share. It is the concept of faith. I’ve shared often about the importance of faith, and that once your faith is strong enough, any necessary action automatically follows. I’ve also shared (and so have millions of others including Jesus) how God acts on our behalf when we have faith. The author of this book provides a very simple but powerful definition of faith. He says, “faith is accepting as true what your senses and reason deny, i.e shutting out of the little, rational, analytical, conscious mind and embracing an attitude of complete reliance on the inner power of your subconscious mind.”(p. 67). I don’t have the necessary time to review the differences between the conscious and subconscious minds, but the basic one is this… your conscious mind is your thinking and logical mind, and it is limited. Your subconscious is the part of the mind where all of your beliefs and memories are stored. It is also connected to the “mind of Christ” we are told we all have as part of us (I Corinthians 2:16). This part of our mind is unlimited.

It is the subconscious mind that enables us and leads us to manifest our desires. Our job is to make sure the subconscious believes this manifestation is possible. For once it does, it is only a matter of time before your dream is realized. One of the most powerful ways to do this is another Bible verse the author mentions in the same chapter. It’s one I share on a regular basis on this site. In fact, it’s my favorite verse in the Bible… Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours(Mark 11:24). In whatever manner you can, your greatest responsibility is to see your wish as already done. See it as already here now. See it as totally accomplished. Act as if you already have what you are seeking. When you do these things, several great things happen. First, you are having that faith that the author says is accepting as true what your senses and reason deny. Also, the Bible verse clearly states that if you believe that you have received it it will be yours!!

I understand this is sometimes easier said than done. The subconscious mind is not easily convinced of new beliefs, especially if you have had the same old negative beliefs for a long time. It may take some time, but it is possible and your beliefs will change if you are persistent. I will say this though…once your subconscious beliefs are changed, you will see the corresponding situations manifest on the outside. There are several ways I have learned to do this:

  1. Visualization. This is the easiest and most fun way to see and experience your wish as an accomplished fact. In your mind, you see yourself living your dream. You feel the corresponding emotions. You see what you want to see and do. This is powerful because the subconscious mind cannot tell the difference between a real and imagined event. As you visualize, your subconscious mind believes this is actually happening. It begins to believe its truth, thus increasing your level of faith. Remember, the Bible also says “according to your faith, it will be done for you.” (Matthew 9:29). And you are believing that you are receiving it. And you will!
  2. Positive Affirmations. Instead of using images to change your subconscious mind, with affirmations you use words. Most of your current beliefs have been developed by words, either things others told you or you told yourself. With positive affirmations, you are doing this purposely.
  3. Hypnosis. Sometimes, it is difficult to maintain the necessary focus to get the maximum effects from visualization. And sometimes your mind fights back with your current beliefs when you try to change them with affirmations. When you use hypnosis, you are putting yourself in a deeply relaxed state. More importantly, you are shutting out your conscious mind and all of its rational beliefs based only on your senses. Instead, it leaves your subconscious mind open to suggestion without fighting it. In a hypnotic state, you are much more able to change those subconscious beliefs. Once that happens, you start living out the new beliefs, the ones you want to see happen.

I realize I am not providing a wealth of detailed information on these topics. I have written about each one in far more detail in other articles and books. You can click on the links I have provided here and check out my book links on this webpage as well for more detailed info about them.

The bottom line is that, in order to change your outer circumstances, you must first change your inner circumstances. When your subconscious mind believes something to be true, then it is, and you will soon experience its truth. Remember to accept your wish as true, even though your senses and logical mind deny it. Believe in your mind that you already have what you desire, and act accordingly. Act with the gratitude and joy you would have if you actually experienced it with our senses. That is true faith. God promises that it is yours if you believe it. Enjoy the blessings 🙂


A Powerful Quote to Bring Positive Change to Any Situation

June 16, 2020

I read a quote yesterday that I’ve read hundreds of times. I’ve also believed these words, but for some reason when I saw the quote again this time, it impacted me more than it ever has. The quote is from one of my favorite authors, Wayne Dyer. It says, “change the way you see things, and the things you see will change.”

As I said, I’ve always believed this. One book where I first read this idea discuss a situation where a woman loved her job but began to truly hate her boss. It detracted her passion so much that she came close to quitting this dream job. She then learned this concept and began practicing it. The result was that her strong distaste for her boss disappeared quickly. In addition, the boss’s attitude towards her became different. The boss seemed to treat her much more fairly, even asking for her input and knowledge on important projects. A simple change of attitude towards this boss changed the whole atmosphere at the job, and her love for her work there returned.

I have also experienced this truth on many occasions. Whether it’s people or things, changing the way I’ve looked at situations has dramatically changed them. I can relate to the job story. I am proud to be a middle school teacher. However, there have been times where my passion has been lost. I work in an environment that can become very negative. Many of my students are low-income city kids that don’t exactly take education seriously. It is easy to get sucked into the negativity and look at my job as a burden. It is easy to think negatively of difficult students who I sometimes feel are learning nothing of what I am teaching them. However, I have learned that as soon as I shift my thinking, the circumstances dramatically change. When I think about how lucky I am to be in the position I’m in that can positively impact lives in a major way, those impacts start happening. When I think positively about my students, they don’t instantly become educational geniuses. However, they do seem to respond much better to what I have to say. This all changes my emotional state for the better.

This concept is true in other areas of life. My wife and I are as different as night and day, and this causes much friction in our marriage. There have been plenty of times where I did not guard my mind and I allowed negative thoughts about her to dominate my mind, or even fearful thoughts that something I said or did would cause a negative reaction in her. This only makes things worse. When I catch myself and change my thinking, things become much more peaceful. Instead of thinking negatively about her, I become thankful that God put the ideal wife and mother of my kids in my life. I pray for her asking for God’s greatness in her life. When I change the way I think about her, it’s amazing how there is so much less tension, even if a negative situation comes up. She is much softer to me, I am much more at ease, and the overall environment in the home is amazingly positive. We have also had difficult financial situations that have been changed by changing our thinking. I went from thinking about the difficulty to being thankful for the money we had, even if it wasn’t quite enough at the time. I changed the way I looked at our situation, trusted in God, and the situation improved sooner rather than later. It didn’t put a million dollars in our account, but somehow the necessary funds showed up, and we got through the difficult situation.

Today in our world there is more negativity than ever before. As I write this, we are in the middle of a global pandemic that has kept us locked up in our homes, kept many people out of jobs, in addition to getting many people sick, and even dying. In the middle of all that are racial riots, political chaos, and much civil unrest. It’s easy to get sucked into that negativity, and even this generally optimistic person has at times. I’ve looked at the inconveniences of stores being closed, not being able to watch sports, and had doubts about my own health, even though I know God has told me through His word that I’ll be fine. However, as soon as I change my perspective, my emotional state changes. There is still a pandemic, and the racial protests haven’t stopped. Yet when I change the way I see this whole situation, it’s amazing how the personal blessings manifest. I thank God that because I have so much more time on my hands, I can write more. I can spend more time with my family. These blessings have been priceless. I realize how much the protests (the legal ones) are helping to bring about the much needed social changes our society needs. It’s seeing things this way that puts me in a better state and opens me up for greater blessings.

The Law of Attraction says that you will experience in life what you think in your mind and feel in your heart. The Bible says we reap what we sow. It then makes sense that the way we look at things determines how those things turn out. Knowing this, I challenge you (and me) to watch the way you look at things. Do your best to see the good in people and in things. Look for positives in every situation. When you do, those positives will manifest, sometimes in miraculous ways. Change the way you see things, and the things you see will change. Enjoy the blessings 🙂


Powerful Guidance for Meditation – And How to Maximize Its Benefits

May 11, 2020

Meditation is a mysterious, powerful tool we can use to bring us closer to God and to rapidly manifesting His will for us. For those that don’t really understand what meditation is all about, it brings to mind weird scenes of people sitting cross-legged and “omming” continuously. Although some may meditate that way, and that is certainly not a problem as long as they feel comfortable with that, there is far more to mediation, and what it can do to improve the quality of our lives.

Many people avoid meditation because they don’t truly understand what it is, nor do they understand its amazing benefits. I hope to clarify both of those ideas in this article. Also, I mention mediation as one of the key initial ingredients in the rapid manifestation formula in my book The Ease and Keys of Rapid Manifestation. For me, the best definition I’ve seen for meditation is in one of the best books I’ve ever read called “The I AM Discourses.” This book does a wonderful job of showing us who we actually are, and how to utilize the amazing power within us. I highly recommend you read it. In Chapter 9, it mentions meditation and defines it very simply… “meditation really means feeling the presence of God.” That’s it! I don’t think you can find a more simple, true definition of what meditation really is. That in itself is the whole point. Stilling your body and mind and simply focusing on God and his beautiful presence. If you can spend even a few minutes a day doing that, you will see quick, positive, and powerful changes in your life.

While in meditation, it is important to maintain your focus on God and His wonderful presence. In the I Am book, author Godfre Ray King adds, “when one attempts to enter meditation, he cannot drag all the disturbance that has beset him during the day along with him.” Sometimes this is easier said than done. So the advice given is to “consciously remove from the feeling and attention every disturbing thing, enter into your meditation to feel the presence of God, and do not revolve your troubles.”

This process is so simple and peaceful. You can do it for 5 minutes or 5 hours. You can do it once a day or several times throughout your day. Its main benefits are that it brings you closer to God, which then results in an incredible peace. It helps you realize He is right there with you to protect you and help you accomplish anything. It also brings your mind and emotional vibration to a much a higher state. This is beneficial because as your energy vibration increases and stays in a more positive state, it attracts circumstances into your life that match the high emotional level. Also, those troubles that you are putting to the side as you focus on God and his power, seem to gradually and magically disappear.

Meditation doesn’t have to be a weird, mysterious process. You can use it regularly to bring yourself closer to God, know who you really are, and keep your mind and heart at a peaceful and powerful vibration that attracts excellence into your life. So what are you waiting for? Still your mind and experience the amazing peace and manifestations that meditation brings. Enjoy the blessings 🙂


6 Powerful Manifestion Steps

April 22, 2020

https://images.app.goo.gl/QCd1XwmvR3oEuqMc8

I found this info today about successful steps to take to successfully manifest your goals and desires. It always helps me to have things listed in a step by step process, and I felt the need to share. I hope this helps you too 🙂


Your Ultimate Guide to Manifesting Your Dream Life

April 1, 2020

I found this excellent step-by-step guide for the manifestation of your goals…

Endo Strong

The idea of “manifesting” change in your life might sound a little woo-woo, but it’s more than making a wish and idly standing by until it comes true.

Manifestation can be defined as “bringing something tangible into your life through attraction and belief” — but it’s also the act of taking radical steps toward change. It’s not only about hope and belief, but also about action and power.

Through the active practice of manifestation, you can make real changes that lead to living your dream life. I’ve read about enough people using this practice to get their dream jobs, attract a loving partner or make their wildest fantasies come true that I believe it works.

I don’t pretend to understand why, but whether psychological or spiritual in nature, manifestation is the real deal — and here’s how to start using it in your own life.

Understand the Law of Attraction.

A Different Question to Ask to Manifest Your Desires

January 14, 2019

If you are somewhat familiar with the Law of Attraction and manifesting your desires, you most likely have learned the right question to ask and the ones not to ask. For example, we are told to ask and answer the question “what”? What is it exactly that we want to manifest? We are told to not ask the question “how”? When we focus on how our desire is going to manifest, we lose focus, begin to doubt, and drastically slow the process of manifesting our desire.

As I’ve studied this topic further, I have been advised to consider a different question. That question is “why”? Why do we want what we want? It’s a great question to ask. I say that because it keeps us focused on the real reasons we want what we want. If you want a million dollars, why? It’s probably because you would have the freedom to do what you want whenever you want. If you want to lose 20 lbs., why? It’s most likely because of how good you would feel physical, and the mental satisfaction of the positive looks and compliments you would receive. You want a significant other in your life, why? Because of the feelings of fulfillment and companionship.

Whatever it is you truly desire, there are reasons you have that desire. There are certain positive feelings it would bring if you had it. When you focus on why you want what you want, you bring those feelings to the front of your mind. You then increase your overall vibration to a positive one. If we dig deeper into the Law of Attraction, it states that we manifest what we think about, and even more so, what we feel. So here is the key…focus on the positive feelings you would have if you already had what your desire. Live in those feelings and the positive state they bring. When you do that, it brings you closer and closer to the manifestation of your desire until you actually live it for real.

Do you want to see those millions of dollars sooner? Live in that freedom now. Remember, where the spirit of the Lord is, there IS freedom! Don’t go way above your means, but perhaps find a way to do some of those things you are thinking about doing if you had more money. If you want the weight to come off faster, think positively about yourself NOW! Feel the inner beauty of your being. Buy clothes now that you would buy once the weight is off. Feel good no matter what you are doing. The same is true if you are seeking a relationship. Feel fulfilled NOW!

Whatever it is you desire, ask yourself why. Then focus on those reasons and live in them. If you do this consistently, the other questions of how and where will be answered for you, and your “when” will be sooner than later. I challenge you to try this, and I believe you will be very pleasantly surprised and rewarded. Enjoy the blessings!!


An Exact Definition of Manifestation and How to Use it To Reach Your Goals

July 20, 2016

Those of you who are familiar with the Law of Attraction are familiar with the term manifestation. In fact, it’s the ultimate goal. We keep our minds focused on positive outcomes, make sure we are feeling good and keeping our vibration high so we can “manifest” our greatest desires.

The question I recently pondered and I now ask you is… what exactly is manifestation? And how does knowing the answer to this question help me? Knowing the answers to these questions can make a big difference in your life and help you “manifest” more rapidly.

I recently wrote an article called, “What Exactly is Manifesting?” which answers the questions above. I recommend you check it out to make your goals and desires a reality. Enjoy the blessings 🙂


The Most Simple Formula Success is Right Here

July 20, 2015

you-become

Every once in awhile I feel the need to get back to the basics. When it comes to reaching success in manifesting my desires, I can’t think of a more simple formula than this one here. Yet we (myself included) often overcomplicate the process and try to do too much. We think negative, lacking thoughts which create negative emotions, and we don’t envision the success we crave. When we don’t succeed we begin to doubt, and that brings us even further away from our goals.

Instead of pulling yourself away from your desires, follow this formula to bring yourself closer. Think success thoughts. Enjoy the positive feelings that correspond to those thoughts. Use your imagination to bring you ANYWHERE YOU WANT TO BE, AND BE ALL YOU WANT TO BE. That’s the wonderful part about our imagination 🙂

The more you think positively and feel positive emotions, the more you set yourself up for the success you are seeking. If you look for them, positive opportunities will begin to appear at your doorstep. It is then up to you to take the necessary action on those opportunities, resulting in success. This success then begins to snowball, and you begin living the life of your dreams.

Am I oversimplifying this process? In the fact that it can be described in more than 200 words, yes. However, in essence, it is this simple. When you consciously monitor your thoughts and emotions to keep them positive far more often than negative, you are indeed setting yourself up to be used by God for His greatness. He is doing most of the work while you just take the small and simple steps you need to take. IT CAN BE THAT SIMPLE!

I challenge you today to focus on this quote and follow its simple instructions. Then watch the miracles take place. Enjoy the blessings 🙂


The Power of Hypnosis…And What it Can Do For You

January 26, 2015

I have always been intrigued by the concept of hypnosis. Ever since I was a teenager I have used it to enhance the quality of my life and remove some of the negative behaviors and habits I’ve had.

When you discuss hypnosis, it sometimes brings up negative ideas or misunderstandings. Some people still see hypnosis as someone swinging a pendulum and “getting sleepy”, or using it to make people do crazy things they have no idea they are doing. There are also some ethical and religious concerns, as some might see it as ungodly, or trying to control what God should be doing for you. For more about this question, check out the article I wrote recently, Is Hypnosis Appropriate For Christians?

The bottom line is that hypnosis can be extremely powerful and potentially life-changing. Its main goal is to influence the subconscious mind. It is this part of your mind that controls your beliefs, and ultimately your actions. If you have negative ideas in your subconscious, hypnosis can change them, and ultimately cause you to take action to create the positive results you are seeking.

I have been using hypnosis since I was a teenager. It has positively impacted my life in several different ways. Here are some examples:

  • It has brought me greater confidence. I was a mostly shy teenager that lacked confidence in myself. Using hypnosis consistently helped me become a person that I liked and others enjoyed being with. It still helps me maintain that confidence today.
  • It removed fears. I had some embarrassing fears that many teenagers don’t have. I used hypnosis with the intention to rid those fears, and they were gone in a matter of weeks.
  • It removed bad habits from my life.
  • It healed my body. I have used hypnosis to heal injuries and remove stress. In most cases, the healing was nearly immediate.

These are specific examples of how hypnosis has impacted me directly. I know others that have used this powerful tool to quit smoking, lose weight, and even find a better job. The potential is endless. Whatever it is you are trying to change or bring about in your life, you can use hypnosis to rapidly manifest your desires.

Up until recently, I mainly hypnotized myself. However, I have found some excellent programs that guide me and enhance the power of hypnosis. One person that I feel very comfortable with is Joseph Clough. Joseph is an internationally known hypnotist who provides a great deal of excellent information on personal development, along with hypnosis tracks to speed up the manifestation process. I love listening to his strong British accent, and he presents himself with the attitude of a friend just dropping by for a chat. I will say that he knows his stuff, and he knows it well. I have read his book, “Be Your Potential” and used his hypnosis tracks. He provides very simple mind-enhancing techniques that can be implemented immediately. The results soon follow.

For more information, here is his website… Joseph Clough.

If you are looking for another guided approach, I recommend this program… The Secret of Deliberate Creation.

I recommend you tap into the power of hypnosis. It has made positive impacts in my life and it will in yours as well. Enjoy the blessings 🙂


Where Can I Find God?

January 20, 2015

One of the more powerful and comforting verses in the Bible is Matthew 6:33 which says to seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well (these things are your concerns and needs of life mentioned in the verses before).

I find a great peace in this, knowing that simply seeking God and His kingdom allows everything else to fall in line. I love the awesome possibility that the manifestation of your desires will follow your conscious effort to focus on God’s presence and kingdom.

It seems simple enough, but people will often ask the serious question…where do I find God? It’s a valid question, especially if you are new to idea of seeking God in the first place. Where can you find God? How can you find God? Each day, I get a greater grasp on the answer to this question. He is everywhere and a part of everything and everybody. He’s part of you and part of me. He created the trees you see in the park,and the beautiful sunset you admired the other night. His hands move the waves of the ocean. Even the snow that I am already sick of this winter is His beautiful creation.

As you can realize, it’s very easy to find God. No matter where you look or where you go He is there. Another great way to find Him is to ask for His presence, assistance, peace, or anything. The great thing is that when you actively seek God, He will reveal Himself to you and allow you to find Him.

Here’s one new part of this old equation I’ve recently discovered… I’m starting to see it as a main reason you receive everything else when you seek God. The idea that when you seek God, you are in essence seeking and finding everything else. It’s because God is in everything. God is the creator and essence of the extra money you are seeking. He is the creator and essence of the relationship you desire. He is all about perfect health, free of disease and stress, and full of love, joy, and confidence. He’s created both the dream and job of the dream job you are pursuing. The list goes on.

The bottom line is that when you seek God you will find Him. And you will also find everything else in the process. Enjoy the blessings.
