(PPT) This is a universe of vibration. As Einstein once observed, “Nothing happens until something moves”-that is, everything vibrates to a measurable frequency. Break the solid world down to smaller and tinier components and you see that what appears to be solid is a dance-a dance of particles and empty spaces. Go to the tiniest of these quantum particles, and you discover cover that it emanated from a source that vibrates so fast that it defies the world of beginnings and endings. This highest/fastest energy is called Source Energy. You and everyone and everything originated in this vibration and then moved into the world of things, bodies, minds, and egos. It was in the leaving of this Source Energy in our body/minds that we took on our entire world of problems, illnesses, scarcities, and fears. -Wayne Dyer-
Good morning again, we are transitioning to a new series called, Manifesting Through the Law of Attraction. Last week we wrapped up our series on the Creation Story by addressing the concept of DIVINE IDEAS. As we get into the LAW OF ATTRACTION, I hope that you will find that there is a close connection between the two.
There have been times where I found myself struggling between using metaphysical and biblical principles to teach the law of attraction, and risking alienating those that are turned off by biblical concepts and church or religious type teachings. At the same time, if I only used secular and scientific terms such as Source energy instead of God or Christ, I would risk alienating the people with a strong Bible-based faith. I do not struggle anymore because to do so would be to fall back on the idea of duality and separation which has been for the most part promoted by traditional and organized religion. Instead, I must honor the concept of Unity and Oneness that were taught by Charles and Myrtle Fillmore and other New Thought pioneers. My purpose in teaching this series is, (PPT)
- The Law of Attraction is real and it works.
- 2. The LOA is based on universal principles much older than Christianity.
- 3. You can find these universal principles in the Bible.
One of my very favorite authors, Napoleon Hill had this to say on this subject.
(PPT) Christianity is the greatest potential power in the world today, because its founder was an intense dreamer who had the vision and the imagination to see realities in their mental and spiritual form before they had been transmuted into physical form. -Napoleon Hill-
The first time that I was introduced to the concept that “like attracts like” therefore the name, LAW OF ATTRACTION, was the first time I read, Think and Grow Rich. There was an analogy that could easily be understood in those days. It involved a radio dial, where you literally and very carefully moved this little needle to the frequency that you were wanting to tune in. You had to get it right on the spot, otherwise you would hear static. Of course, precision tuning is now available in the digital age that we live.
But the bottom line was that if you wanted to receive the programming of a certain station, all you had to do was dial that frequency. Matching the frequency of that station would pretty much guarantee that you were going to receive that station.
The author continued to explain that our mind and our lives work in the same way. We can choose to tune in our minds to happy thoughts, productive thoughts, energetic thoughts. Among those channels are the I feel good channel, the I am powerful channel, the I can do this channel, and the All things are possible channel. Those are different stations in the receiver of our mind. There are also other channels. We have the sad, channel, the depressed, channel, the, poor me channel, the I am not good enough channel, the nobody likes me channel and so forth. Now, the channels we decide to make our favorites, like we do today, are going to determine the physical reality that we experience in our lives.
Friends, this is not some Pollyanna theory. I have seen this work in my life over and over. I am sure you have too. If not, just put it to the test and see for yourself
I want to bring back part of the introductory quote by Wayne Dyer:
(PPT) It was in the leaving of this Source Energy in our body/minds that we took on our entire world of problems, illnesses, scarcities, and fears. -Wayne Dyer-
I find it very interesting that in Unity we quote quite frequently an isolated verse from the book of Job, that says, “you shall decree a thing and it will be established unto you.” (Job 22:28 -KJV-) We quote it to show Biblical support for the power of the spoken word. But we conveniently do not quote the verses that come right before. These are some of them: (PPT)
“Submit to God and be at peace with him;
in this way prosperity will come to you.
22 Accept instruction from his mouth
and lay up his words in your heart.
23 If you return to the Almighty, you will be restored:
If you remove wickedness far from your tent (JOB 22:21-23)
This does not mean that God’s love is conditional. That would imply separation. This simply means that we must consciously and intentionally match our vibration to that of Source Energy, or Spiritual Energy, Divine Spirit, and so forth. It’s about being in alignment with God. What is that vibration? Perfect love, peace, wisdom, strength power etc., etc.
At one point, we were one with God, or Source Energy. Later we embraced the ways of the ego, personality, or the carnal mind. And we forgot how to be one with Source Energy.
For those that are not used to hearing these kinds of teachings and find them a little bit too far out, we can find the same concept in the Allegory of Genesis when Adam and Eve were expelled from the Garden of Eden.
My purpose during this series is also to demystify the Law of Attraction. While is good to know about scientific principles and Biblical principles that support this powerful law, I will show you simple and practical ways to get this law to start working for you immediately.
I love it when the Universe provides me with a life experience that I can use in my Sunday message. Just yesterday I was visiting with a patient in the hospital. She shared with me that a cat scan a revealed a 12-centimeter mass in one of her lungs, which was communicated to her by her lung doctor. She immediately made some adjustments in her diet like cutting off sugar, but she began to use visualization techniques to see the mass shrinking and ultimately dissolving and disappearing. About 6 to 7 months after that she had to have another cat scan for an unrelated condition. The same lung doctor came into her room and told her that he had compared both cat scans and the mass was no longer there.
Folks, our natural state is one of perfect health. Our natural state is one of perfect peace. Our natural state is one of abundance. Once again, all that is required is that we recognize that we come from Source-Energy, or that we were created in the image and likeness of our Creator. Whether you are inspired by Scripture or by science, there is enough evidence to support that everything is energy that is constantly vibrating and all we need to do is match the vibration of Source-Energy, or align yourself with the thought of God, to create and manifest whatever your desire.
Napoleon Hill, said, whatsoever the human mind can conceive, it can achieve. Jesus taught that whatsoever you ask in prayer BELIEVING IT, you shall receive it. An Aramaic scholar that I used to know taught that the Aramaic word for prayer literally means, to catch and trap God thoughts. How do we do that? By intentional, prayer and meditation. How are these two related to the Law of Attraction? This is the subject of next week’s lesson. God Bless.
