Sparks of Insight“Men often become what they believe themselves to be. If I believe I cannot do something, it makes me incapable of doing it. But when I believe I can, then I acquire the ability to do it even if I didn’t have it in the beginning.” – Mahatma Gandhi

This is what’s called the “self-fulfilling prophecy.” You tend to live up to your own expectations and beliefs about what you can and can’t do. If you think you can’t succeed, then the subconscious will make sure to verify that opinion. However, if you believe you can succeed, despite the odds, then everything you need will appear in your life.

Sparks of InsightAre you distracting yourself from your goal? This could be a way to make sure you never achieve it, due to some old thought pattern or fear. The distraction could be in the form of chores, chaos in your home or business life, trying to appease others by putting your goals on hold, fulfilling others’ expectations and much more. In a way, you’re making sure you can’t accomplish your goal because you may not feel it’s more important than what others want, or that you’re afraid it may not live up to your hopes. No matter what, you deserve to stand up for what you want. Take one step or action every day in the direction of your goal. This will help to convince you and your subconscious that your desire is right and appropriate.

Sparks of InsightMany people who have seen “The Secret” or have been learning about the Law of Attraction think that all they have to do is to focus on what they want and it will drop into their laps. Sometimes it does just that, but those times are rare, and generally preceded by a lot of work in that direction. Have you heard about someone, writer, actor, musician, becoming an “overnight sensation” after twenty years of being in the business? For the Law of Attraction to really work for you, you need to take actions in accordance with your desire. This convinces your subconscious that you truly mean business and are ready for that change in your life.

Book Review-The Science of Successful Living

The Science of Successful Living: The Spiritual Formula for a Joyous Life
by Raymond Charles Barker

The subtitle on my copy of this book reads, “Written by a successful man for people who want success.” The author was a well-known author and minister for a Religious Science church in New York City. He also co-authored a book (now out of print) with Maxwell Maltz (who wrote “Psychocybernetics”).

This book gives straight, practical, down to earth information on how to experience greater success in all areas of your life. The author takes the reader into the depths of how the Universal and creative minds work, and translates abstract concepts into concrete explanations. As you read the information in this book, your consciousness will change to increase your acceptance of abundance, health, joy and peace of mind.

My copy is old and falling apart, with many passages either underlined or highlighted. But I wouldn’t trade it for any other, more recent, book. I value it too highly.

Sparks of InsightAre you using your busy mind to create a better future for yourself, or stay in the rut that you’ve created? You’re always visualizing or using your imagination to form your future. If you’re worried about it not improving, then that’s the blueprint your subconscious will use. It’s been said that spending only a couple of minutes a day of visualizing your desire, in detail, feeling yourself having it, is a technique that the most successful and high achievers use. Then during the day, use your active mind to remember that image and you’ll begin to use your mind positively, rather than letting it run away with you.

Sparks of Insight“As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he.” – Proverbs 23:7

In this case, the heart means your subconscious, creative mind. Whatever you believe and expect, deep down, is what you’ll experience. These are the beliefs that may not agree with your conscious choices, but are what you truly think. When you have a strong conviction that you have to struggle and life is against you, then that’s the life you’ll have. However, when you believe strongly that things will turn out for the best, then your creative mind will find a way to bring that about.

Sparks of InsightAre you watching what you say? Your creative mind readily accepts each word you say with repetition, force, and conviction. If you have a habit of stating, “I can’t afford that,” then your subconscious will take that as a directive to make it true. If you’re chronically criticizing others, your creative mind will take the image of what you’re condemning and bring more of it to judge. It can’t distinguish between your positive and negative focus. So keep watch on your statements, and make them positive and what you want in your life.

Sparks of Insight“When there is a conflict between the will and the imagination, the imagination always wins.” – William James

When you consciously want one thing, but keep imagining it opposite, then what you visualize will be what manifests, for the imagination also includes the emotions. Let’s say you want more prosperity, but all that fills your mind is the fear that you won’t be able to pay your bills. You dwell (imagination) on your fear, and that’s what gets the attention of your subconscious. Not what you consciously saying you want. Get the two of them in sync, and watch the miracles.

Why aren’t affirmations changing my life?

Question about affirmationsQuestion: What should I do when I get results from affirmations, but my life still doesn’t change in any major way?

Answer: It sounds like there’s something in your subconscious that’s blocking your manifesting enough to make a difference. It could be that you have a hard time actually believing that you could receive that much. It could be that you are restricting how it can come into your life. It could be a feeling of unworthiness. It could be a belief in having to struggle. It could be any number of ideas that you’ve accepted over the years that are restricting, limiting, or blocking your manifestation. I’d suggest you create an affirmation that helps to uncover and release any old, outdated ideas that are still operative.
