I was looking up on line exactly what this bible verse was and came across a nice little article that is the title of this book….I’ll just transfer is here:
*Download FREE eBook James Allen’s Timeless Classic “As A Man Thinketh”Right thinking begins with the words we say to ourselves. We are the architects of our own lives and unwittingly create pain and suffering for ourselves due to the unconscious thoughts we focus on within.
Every thought you think creates that very reality for you. If you see yourself as lacking and poor then you will be lacking and poor. If your thinking is going after and gaining wealth then wealth is what you will obtain. It’s simple to manifest in your life whatever you desire.
Visualize yourself as if you already ARE where you want to be or the state of well being you desire to be in. I mean get in your head and see it, feel it, hear it and taste it. What emotions does it bring up? Feel them!
What you think and do draws more of the same to you. Change your attitude and behavior to what you want drawn into your life.
Taking care of yourself and eating properly is the lifestyle of a healthy active person. Healthy active people think of themselves as healthy and active. Begin a healthier lifestyle. Remember, you are what you eat. So eat healthy foods.
Be that – Wealthy people think of themselves as wealthy and having it all. They are motivated to go after the big bucks and have a leisurely lifestyle. You will have it too if you keep focused on what you desire.
Do you think Donald Trump would be where he is without doing his mental homework? He has $ on his mind and that draws more $ into his life.
What you see and what you think draws more of the same to you. If you’re saying to yourself “that I’m never going to”, then you never will. So see beauty in all things and watch what happens!
Act that – Pretend if you have to. Become the actor and act the part. Put on your best so you will feel the best. The world is your stage and you are the writer and director. What play have you produced? What play will you produce now? Will it be an Emmy winner?
Do that – For the healthy lifestyle start eating and exercising as you are able (no slacking or what you manifest is a whole lot of nothing). Do what you can and do a little extra when you are able in a day or two. Once you get the pendulum moving (you) it will continue to swing and so will you. See the 2 u’s in the word pendulum? Yes, U have 2 do this 2 become that!
Want money? See yourself having it, spending it and falling out of your pockets. Don’t expect to have it though if you’re not willing to work for it. You can’t become wealthy sitting on your butt! That is unless Grandma left you a fortune when she passed.
Be Grateful for what you do have. See yourself prosper and you will have it. Be open to receiving it and having it because if you don’t really think you should have it or feel you’re not worthy to receive it, what you do have shall also vanish.
Become – Surround yourself with beautiful things. You don’t have to be rich to pick up a bouquet of flowers at the store to brighten up your surroundings. Hang a beautiful mirror or painting in your living space. Put candles on the table at dinner time. Dress for dinner!
Keep thinking and seeing yourself as obtaining whatever it is you wish and you will become and obtain that which you wish.
Every time I turn on the television or see the news paper it seems as though it’s just covered in fear….they are constantly pumping it into our thoughts, emotions and minds….you have the right to NOT tune into that….it is not the end all truth unless you make it so. In the 80’s mortgage interest rates were up in the high teens and I believe even up to 20….I remember the fear surrounding that…I was a child but my father talked about it as though we were in a great depression….and we were….Michigan’s unemployment rate had reached 25% according to an article I found on line….but we came back….we flourished again…now we’re having a hard time….but it doesn’t have to be….see it as a transition into greater and greater things. Change what you are tuning in to….”Greater is He who is in me that he who is in the world”. If you are going through a challenging time right now….remember another period of time where you didn’t know what to do….you got through it didn’t you? I’m also betting that when you got through it, you were in a better place than before you had the challenge.
Some other great resources that I have found to overcome these attacks on my thoughts by the media, other people, the fear in the air are watching spiritual shows…I watch Joyce Meyer, Creflo Dollar and the Copelands every day, movies like “The Secret”, “You Can Heal Your Life” by Louise Hay are awesome as well. Books like “Creating Money” by Sanaya Roman and the Abraham Books by Ester and Jerry Hicks are wonderful too.
There are physical things you can do to change the energy in your home….your home should be a place of comfort, love, peace and security….if it’s not….let’s get it there. I use a native American custom called “smudging”, you can buy a smudging stick on line or at a metaphysical book store. What it is is a tightly bound bundle of sage, you light it, blow out the fire and let it smoke….walk around the house with it letting the smoke go to all corners, (keep a bowl under if of course)….I say a prayer asking for any negative energy to be released from my home….I also say, “I ask for the mantle of Christ’s light to protect us, the Love of God to enfold us, the peace of God to fill us and that this home be filled with the light of the Holy Spirit. Amen” I do this a couple of times a year….the smudge stick is kind of a big deal….but worth it….you’ll be amazed by the lift you feel after you’ve done it. For regular maintenance of the energy I use an insence….I believe that’s a Catholic tradition….I always remember smelling it in church with my grandma : )….any way, I use “Nag Champa”….I do this any time I’ve had people over, if there has been an argument, when I come home from being around a lot of people….especially if I don’t have a good feeling….and it works….don’t take my word for it….give it a try.
I wish you all the peace, love, security, joy and happiness that is available to you…..Let your light shine bright!!!
