Week 17H The Power of Thought

I give myself permission to be happy, wealthy, successful and productive.

“I will persist until I succeed.” Og Mandino

I am a writer.  I shape my life one step at a time with persistence.   I am the thespian of my life and with this vocation I laser focus my thoughts as the creator of my reality.

It is through my personal development as a human being I learn to create characters that connect with each other and my readers.   I learn to understand myself so I can learn to understand others.

As a writer, I am a business entrepreneur and the master of my destiny. There are many roads to success, and like the ant, I will try every one until I forge the path that connects me with my destination.  I give myself permission to be happy, successful, earn lots of money, and share my vision with the world giving back all that I gain.

My thoughts create the magic of my life.

I am powerful.  I am a drop of water in the universal ocean of life.  I am in the flow and I feel it. ~Said to me by my brilliant friend Ellen Miller

  ~Hannel 17: 8-9

8. Concentration is much misunderstood; there seems to be an idea of effort or activity associated with it, when just the contrary is necessary. The greatness of an actor lies in the fact that he forgets himself in the portrayal of his character, becoming so identified with it, that the audience is swayed by the realism of the performance. This will give you a good idea of true concentration; you should be so interested in your thought, so engrossed in your subject, as to be conscious of nothing else. Such concentration leads to intuitive perception and immediate insight
into the nature of the object concentrated upon.

7. All knowledge is the result of concentration of this kind; it is thus that the secrets of Heaven and Earth have been wrested; it is thus that the mind becomes a magnet and the desire to know draws the knowledge, irresistibly attracts it, makes it your own.

The Blogosphere is doing it again. EATING MY COMMENTS. I’m not Ignoring YOU

COMMENT PROBLEMS

GRRRRR!

 

Comment Problems:  The Blogosphere is doing it again.  EATING MY COMMENTS.  I have signed on with google+, WordPress and Twitter, comments still eaten.  Some with FB sign on let me comment but not all.    It’s crazy.

So Please don’t think I’m ignoring you on purpose

I wrote about this before.

Why does this always happen when I am participating in a blogging event when I really need it to work?  When I am just visiting things seem to work.

Last time I found a way around it, but my way around is not working this time.  It works on some blogs but not all.  I am beginning to think it is program conflict problems or updates causing interference and conflict since it does not always last.   GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR

I really hope it goes away soon.  I will look to see if any updates and solutions added reference this continuing problem.

The kicker is that Blogs I comment all the time are eating my comments.  I have not clue what is going on because I have not changed anything.  Maintenance tweaks have changed nothing.

This is really aggravating, time-consuming trying to find a solution.  It is ridiculous this has gone on so long.  I found posts to WP on their support site a couple of years old about this very issue.

Even though it happens on Blogger, I think the glitch is a WP issue, possibly updates to themes and/or WP itself.

Week 17 FOCUS, FILTER, FLOURISH

I am ME and that’s unique.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

FOCUS, FILTER, FLOURISH

Haanel Part 17: 34-36
34 – If you wish to eliminate fear, concentrate on courage.
35 – If you wish to eliminate lack, concentrate on abundance.
36 – If you wish to eliminate disease, concentrate on health

The first 4 questions at the end of the reading of Part 17, I thought powerful, applicable, and a truth to common reason.

  • What is the true method of concentration?  To become so identified with the object of your thought that you are conscious of nothing else.
  • What is the result of this method of concentration?  Invisible forces are set in motion which irresistibly bring about conditions in correspondence with your thought.
  • What is the controlling factor in this method of thought?  Spiritual Truth.
  • Why is this so?  Because the nature of our desire must be in harmony with the Natural Law.

The wealth of my life overflows giving to me the power of perception, the wisdom of the ages, honing my intuition and building sagacity into my character.

I give myself permission to live abundantly in all areas, fully and in joy.  Grow in wealth, hope, and confidence sharing the gifts with those I meet throughout my journey.  I give myself permission to dance in joy, live in grace and operate in love.

“I am nature’s greatest miracle.”  (Og Mandino)

   

This is a song about Life, Love, and Hope.  The presentation amuses me.  Change is a kind of death.  Death to the old to make room for the new.

The more I read Haanel the more I see the reflections of the spiritual truth I was taught as I a child, and like that child, I flow into them without resistance.

Galatians 5:22-23 (NIV)

22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness, and self-control. Against such things, there is no law.

1 Corinthians 13: 4-7 & 13

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hope, always perseveres.

13 And now these three remain: faith, hope, and love. But the greatest of these is love.

“I will persist until I succeed.” (Og Mandino)

Week 16 OH HAPPY DAY!

I was going to use the song This Little Light of Mine, but changed my mind, and decide to use this song instead.  Even though a religious song it is so beautiful.  A  perfect example of a light shining in a human voice.

I love this kid’s voice and the sound of this group from the movie Sister Act.  Such a beautiful voice.  It gives me joy just to listen to it.  I can feel my spirit sing with him.

KINDNESS

Something to share.  I think this blog post a must read this week written by Lori King in week 16, also these by  JeanSFiona and James Jowers.

 Despite my increased awareness for kindness this week there have been incidents that engendered an overwhelming sadness within me that rode along with kindness.  I know this is my old blueprint.  I have used the Law of Substitution yet I find myself in a yo-yo cycle.

Why?  And why now?  I examined these feeling following them to a deeper underlying source. It’s been 25  years, December 2, 1991, since I lost my dad to cancer, but deeper still the death of my mother when I was a teenager still in school. (35 years coming up Jan, 25th, 1981)

I still feel like that child in this place.  It’s yesterday, old blueprint.  I thought I had already dealt and made peace with this a few years ago. I’ve lived a lot of years since then having made the choice to celebrate the life they lived by living mine to the best of my ability.

 The Law of Rhythm.   I live, I grow, and I succeed through challenges and successes in the rise and fall of life.  I must practice, The Law of Dual Thought better.  I had not realized I let it slip.

Odd thing, it was not thought that took me to that place but an unrelated incident that triggered the FEELINGS which when examined led me to that root.

Law of Substitution   We cannot think about 2 things at the same time.  If a negative thought enters your mind  –  try to think about God instead.  If that is too big a reach at the time, use any fond memory or other pleasant thought.  Jesus, the master Teacher, said  “Resist not evil”  meaning turn from it and think about something else instead.

Law of Dual Thought

“Thought is a combination of ideation and feeling.  We can attach any feeling to a thought we want.”  

How does one attach new or positive emotion to such an event?  It is the emotion that caused me to stumble as my thoughts were not directly involved until I examined the “the feeling” in search of a causation.  Any advice?

This journey for me is about personal growth and achieving my dreams.  I recognized that my own thought process that I accumulated through time in the things learned in the living, the experience, my education and life and world environment needed work and reshaping.  My own perceptions and point of view held me back a barrier to “being” my best me.

I found this youtube list of uplifting song.  Enjoy.

Week 15 If anything is excellent or praiseworthy–think about such things.” Philippians 4:8″

I’ve been sick this week.  Started as cold now deep in my chest.  Sitting still and quieting the noise is all I’ve felt like doing.   Missed some reads mainly because I slept away a couple of days while sick.  I’ve had a headache I can’t seem to shake which is throwing my concentration off, so now this post may reflect my struggle.    LOL, laughing-at-self did discover it’s harder to have no opinion when you don’t feel well and are cranky.

I’ve visited around and read some other blogs.  This bible verse stood out to me on Lori King’s blog.

“…whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable–if anything is excellent or praiseworthy–think about such things.” Philippians 4:8”

Playing yo-yo and tug-a-war switching my focus.  @@ I feel great.  I am healthy, happy, joyful and full of energy.

I am grateful for my life and health.

I am grateful for my challenges so I might learn, overcome and soar.

I am grateful for all the opportunity and blessings that come my way.  I am grateful that I act and respond to all the opportunities and blessings that shape my life allowing me to give back and inspire others.

I am grateful for the spirit of light that touches my soul and guides me through the maze of my life revealing my truth.

“I am nature’s greatest miracle.”  ~Og Mandino

The bible contains some the most beautiful poetry in the world.

THE BEATITUDES

Matthew 5:3-16

3  Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

4  Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted.

5  Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth.

6  Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.

7  Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy.

8  Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God.

9  Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.

10  Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness’ sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

11  Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake.

12  Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you.

13  ¶Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men.

14  Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.

15  Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house.

16  Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.
