(PPT 1 ) Jesus the Good Shepherd
7 So again Jesus said to them, “Very truly, I tell you, I am the gate for the sheep. 8 All who came before me are thieves and bandits; but the sheep did not listen to them. 9 I am the gate. Whoever enters by me will be saved, and will come in and go out and find pasture. 10 The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly. (John 10: 7-10)
Good morning, today we are continuing our Law of Attraction series. In the first lesson, we talked about our Universe being a Universe of vibration, which started with Source Energy, or God, and how important it is for us to match the vibration of Source Energy, or be in alignment with God, in order for the Law of Attraction to work. Last week we took it a step further by integrating Faith into our process. Again this was about matching the vibration of Source Energy; about being in alignment with God, through effective prayer and meditation. We also outlined what effective prayer was, and by the way, if your go to our blog, you will find a PDF with a Power Point of the lesson with the steps outlined. We are also going to be having a practical exercise of these steps in 4 Thursday evenings ONLINE webinars. These webinars will be recorded, in case you cannot attend them.
Today we will be dealing with combining autosuggestion and imagination in order to program our subconscious mind for success in whatever endeavor we are pursuing.
I want to get something out of the way. When we hear the term “autosuggestion” it is easy to go to a place of thinking that this is about sitting in the Lotus position and chanting suggestions to our mind. Not necessarily; even though that might work. This is what Napoleon Hill has to say about this subject.
(PPT 2) AUTOSUGGESTION is a term, which applies to all suggestions, and all self-administered stimuli, which reach one’s mind through the five senses. Stated in another way, autosuggestion is self-suggestion. Hill, Napoleon. Think and Grow Rich!
In other words, autosuggestion or self-suggestion is like this agency who’s job is to decide which of the thoughts that are being entertained by our conscious mind, is allowed to pass into the subconscious with enough force that such thought, combined, with FAITH, can connect with SOURCE ENERGY and begin to mold that invisible substance into manifestation.
(PPT 3) NO THOUGHT, whether negative or positive, CAN ENTER THE SUBCONSCIOUS MIND WITHOUT THE AID OF THE PRINCIPLE OF AUTOSUGGESTION, with the exception of those thoughts picked up as “flashes of insight or inspiration.” Stated differently, all sense impressions which are perceived through the five senses are captured and processed by the conscious thinking mind and may be either passed on to the subconscious mind or rejected, at will. The conscious faculty serves, therefore, as an outer guard at the approach to the subconscious. Hill, Napoleon. Think and Grow Rich.
This is extremely important. Those of you that are comforted by Biblical support of these Universal principles, this is the spiritual or even psychological meaning of the Scripture I read at the beginning. Here is part of it again:
(PPT 4) 9 I am the gate. Whoever enters by me will be saved, and will come in and go out and find pasture. (John 10: 9)
In this case, we are taking it to the next level, by having our Christ Consciousness be the screening process of anything that wants to pass into our subconscious. These days we hear a lot the term, “live streaming”, meaning a broadcast that is happening live on the Internet. It is taking place in real time as opposed to something that has been previously recorded.
Well there is a live stream of thoughts that is constantly being broadcast. There are thoughts associated with fear, and there are thoughts associated with love. We need to decide which are we going to allow passing through. Once again, by raising the vibration to that vibration of Source Energy or being in alignment with God, or The Christ, we will make sure that we are on the way to manifesting good and only good.
Now the other subject that I would like to touch base here is the use of our imagination. Not too long ago we were talking about it during our Creation series; therefore I will not spend a lot of time on this. For a second, lets get back to Napoleon Hill:
(PPT 5) Your subconscious mind recognizes and acts ONLY upon thoughts which have been well-mixed with emotion or feeling. Plain, unemotional words do not influence the subconscious mind. You will get no appreciable results until you learn to reach your subconscious mind with thoughts or spoken words, which have been well emotionalized with BELIEF. Hill, Napoleon. Think and Grow Rich
Here is where the imagination comes very handy. Imagination is in my opinion the most important of all our faculties because it allows us to create whatever emotion we wish to create. Now I am going to digress for just a second because this should be and will be the subject of next lesson.
The only way that we can cloth a thought with enough emotion, and in such a way that it can transmute something from invisible substance to visible manifestation is if we really DESIRE IT. Before we start working on imagining your good, I suggest that we get clear about what we really want.
Sometimes we sit down and say, I want a better paying job. Yeah, sure that’s nice. But that is not specific enough. You are not telling the Universe that you are really exited about that, because you have not taken the time to really get exited about something that you really want. Napoleon Hill talks about having such a burning desire that it will become an obsession. When I say obsession, I am not using this word in a negative way. What I mean is that you want it so much that you think about it all the time; you create a statement about accomplishing that dream whatever it is and you feel the emotions and the feelings once you are in possession of the dream or whatever it is you wish to accomplish.
Neville another of my favorite writers suggests to use the imagination to see your self not only in possession of your dream but also, AFTER you are enjoying it. Fill your mind with all sorts of details of what your life and circumstances will look like NOW that you have accomplished or acquired whatever it is that you were seeking.
Next week we will look at two principles, which when combined, they can bring you the results you desire. Those principles are the principles of DESIRE and CONCENTRATION
Affirmation: I allow only positive thoughts into my mind
