Philip K. Dick is a famous writer whose many works of fiction were turned into popular science fiction movies including Total Recall, Blade Runner and Minority Report. He once described a peculiar experience that reflects a strange phenomenon:
“In 1970 I wrote a novel called Flow My Tears. One of the characters is a 19 year old girl named Kathy. Her husband’s name is Jack. Kathy appears to work for the criminal underground, but later as we read deeper into the novel, we discover that actually she is working for the police. She has a relationship going on with a police inspector. The character is pure fiction. Or at least I thought it was.
On Christmas Day of 1970, I met a girl named Kathy – this was after I had finished the novel, you understand. She was 19 years old. Her boyfriend was named Jack. I soon learned that Kathy was a drug dealer. I spent months trying to get her to give up dealing drugs. I kept warning her again and again that she would get caught. Then one evening as we were entering a restaurant together, Kathy stopped short and said, “I can’t go in.” Seated in the restaurant was a police inspector whom I knew. “I have to tell you the truth,” Kathy said. “I have a relationship with him”.
Certainly these are odd coincidences. Perhaps I have precognition.”
One possibility is that the writer spent a lot of time creating the fiction in his mind, and he later drew that into his experience. Another may be the power of subconscious precognition of future events.
Another instance I can recall is this story told by a friend of mine. He said many years ago, when he was still in university, he took one year off to work in an office. He was stressed out from that job, because it was his first job and he spent many days doing overtime. One day he thought he needed to take a day off. In his mind, he concocted a story to tell his boss. In his imagination, he told his boss that his house had a water pipe leak, and he would need to take a day off to get a plumber to fix it. He repeated that imagined conversation with his boss many times for about 2 days. At the end of the 2nd day, he decided he didn’t want to take the day off, and he forgot about it. Just 1 or 2 days later, he noticed a wet spot on his carpet just outside the bathroom. Over the next 2 days, the small little wet spot got bigger and in the end his whole living room carpet had water at almost 1/2 a foot high. A plumber was called in, and he found a crack in the shower pipe in the ceiling which leaked down the hollow wall to under the carpet.
Precognition or a powerful imagination? Future events can cast a shadow in the present, as much as our imagination today can create events in the future. Truly in this world where everything exists in the imagination, it is hard to draw the line.
Matter is energy condensed. Events are thought forms and imagination condensed. We are living in a world of imagination.
A few readers have emailed me to ask if they should make any changes to their diet in order to improve their sensitivity to telepathy and thought influence. Telepathy and thought influence are extra sensory perception (ESP) abilities that can be trained. Harold Sherman, a famous psychic wrote several books about ESP. He claimed he trained his mind to develop his ESP powers through practise.
There are many advantages of having ESP powers. ESP can be used in your daily life to solve problems, influence people, create opportunities and synchronicities. Our ability for ESP can be trained. In 1996-1999, I learned from several books on the subject of ESP that by choosing a more alkaline diet and lifestyle, we can increase our mental faculties and sensitivity to ESP such as telepathy, thought influence, etc. When you alkalize your body you will also feel an increase in Life Energy. Here are a few ways to improve your ESP powers and also improve your health at the same time:
1) Meditation: Many psychics and ESP practitioners will recommend meditation for those who wish to increase their ESP. Spend at least 5 minutes each day uninterrupted for meditation and you will start to notice more synchronicities in your life. I remember when I started meditating many years ago, I started noticing more ESP events in my daily life. I could suddenly think of someone that I haven’t met for a long time, and then run into them at an unexpected time and place. Or I would talk about someone and then receive a phone call from them within the hour. These are the type of telepathy or ESP powers that you can expect when you start meditation regularly.
2)Reducing stress and acidic thoughts: Stress weakens the body and mind by introducing environmental, lifestyle and emotional toxins into our body. Excessive negative thinking and feeling can make your body produce acid into your bloodstream, hence we often hear people say “she indulges in a lot of acidic thoughts”.
3)An alkalizing diet: This is by far the most important part of alkalizing. It has been long maintained that alkalizing your body is the way to improve your health and also to enable your mental faculties to perform better. When your body is acidic and under stress, you are unable to use your full mental capabilities. When your body is under a lot of stress, your bloodstream becomes incredibly acidic. If the pH of the blood is thrown out of balance, people tend to fall sick very easily. Foods such as meat, sugar, starch are highly acidic in nature. Green vegetables and plant leafs on the other spectrum are alkalizing in nature. While our modern diet consist mostly of acidic foods such as meat, sugar and starch, it is strongly lacking in alkalizing foods. Hence, most people take alkalizing supplements to neutralize the acid from their regular diet. There are a few products that I’ve been taking to alkalize, and one of them is the Garden Of Life Alkalizer and Detoxifier. It contains highly alkalizing fruits, vegetables, leafs and herbs to help your body neutralize the acidity that is resulted from our diet.
Another product I’ve been using is the Portable Alkaline Water Bottle. This is a bottle that enables you to make your own alkaline water from normal drinkable or mineral water.
I have also been using alkaline water machines at home for more than 10 years. About 10 years ago before I started alkalizing my body, I was constantly plagued by chronic fatigue because my body was too acidic. Fatigue also caused my mind to be foggy. Through certain dietary changes and adjustments, by adding meditation, relaxation and alkalizing my body with supplements and alkaline water, I made a complete recovery from chronic fatigue.
(Disclaimer: It is important that if you have any illness, consult your medical practitioner before trying an alkaline diet or product.)
Today I would like to share with you a story of how imagination can create our future reality. And it can manifest even the specific and detail if you desire it to be.
Many years ago in 2005, an old friend of mine told me his story about using his imagination. I had taught him some of my mental techniques for creating the reality you choose by using imagination. So he took my advice and put it to practice. He wanted to get a new girlfriend.
For several weeks, using the specific mental deepening technique and visualization method, he put himself into a deep state of mind and started to enact in his mind a few imaginative scenes. The first scene, he imagined himself sitting in his living room, watching tv with his new girlfriend. Then the next scene, he imagined what kind of hairstyle he liked on a girl. He imagined she was slim, wearing a white tshirt, sitting next to him on the sofa, watching tv. So he did this in his mind over the course of a few weeks.
He was feeling frustrated at the lack of progress after 2 weeks. One day, he went to the library to read. He felt sleepy and he rested his head over his arms crossed on the table, and just closed his eyes. After a while, he was awakened by the sound of someone coming to sit next to him. He turned his head, and saw this girl sitting 2 chairs away from him. The first thing he noticed was, she had the exact same hairstyle that he visualized in his future girlfriend. He thought to himself, this is such a coincidence, just as he had been thinking about this hairstyle, now he sees it right next to him. After a while, the girl asked to borrow his pen, and they started talking. He wasn’t sure if he really liked her, and they started contacting each other as friends.
Well over the next few weeks, the girl started to come over to his house for tea and sometimes joining him for dinner. And they started getting quite close to each other. One night after dinner, he noticed a strange sense of deja vu. There he was, sitting on his sofa watching tv with this girl next to him. The girl was wearing a white tshirt. And on that particular night, she tied her hair exactly the same way as he had been ‘seeing’ in his imagination for weeks! And according to him, the girl was the one making the moves to get close to him all along.
In our mental lab, we create and shape our future reality. Make no mistake about it, when you imagine a goal consistently, you are remolding your world and the people in it. What are we imagining? If your thoughts are all over the place, there’s no focus to create a specific reality or experience. If you are definite in what you want, you can use the right techniques to pull you towards the future reality that you desire. If you seriously believe your imagination can shape your future reality, would you use it to deliberately create the reality you want?
If you want to change or improve your life, the first thing you must do is to MAKE A DECISION TO CHANGE. Change includes changing how you think and what you are committed to do. Without that decision and commitment to it, you cannot experience lasting change.
Without a DECISION about who you want to become, you will not be able to align your thoughts to guide you towards that goal. No decision and no commitment is a sign that you have NO GOAL TO AIM FOR. In fact, I will tell you if you have not made a committed decision, you will find it hard to even imagine yourself as the person you want to be. You simply cannot do it because you will be plagued with doubts. Therefore, we often hear people saying, “You must BE, DO and THINK like the person you wish to become”.
“Let not that man think he can receive anything from the Lord. The double minded man is unstable in all his ways” (James 1:8).
But once you have made a COMMITTED DECISION, one that you will not back out from, magical things will happen. It may not happen immediately, although sometimes it does. Once you stick with a committed decision, you will see things start to fall into the right places in your life. Opportunities will start to emerge out of the blue. You will meet people who will help you to succeed. You may be introduced or have a chance meeting with someone new. Whatever is needed for you to achieve your aim, even if it requires the complex organization and synchronization of many people, right timing, and events, it will be done. And it will be done at a level that you do not consciously control.
Readers of my articles will be familiar with how I decided and imagined myself into my ideal apartment,and how everything was mysteriously synchronized to turn by imagination into reality within a month. The existing tenants decided to break their lease and return to their home country, giving me the opportunity to have the apartment. And the landlord who kept the rent below market rent to entice me to stay – and it’s the exact rental price ceiling that I set in my imagination. I didn’t ask the ex tenants to let go of their apartment. I didn’t ask the landlord to keep the rent below market rate, eventhough the agent repeatedly asked the landlord to raise the rent, and the landlord refused to just because he made up his mind that I am the perfect tenant for him. I didn’t consciously put those thoughts into their minds, the thoughts originated in their own minds.
Another example, when I wanted to own my dream car, a Mercedes C Class, once I made a clear decision that I will have it, things happened within a week for me to own it. I had been wishing to own such a car since 2005, but because I had not been firm in my decision, I was not able to image it clearly.
But one day in 2010, I decided to have it and I started imagining it vividly. I wanted a silver coloured Mercedes C Class at below market price.
Within a week, I was driving back from lunch with my mum and sister and I suddenly had this idea to check out the Mercedes showroom when we drove past. Coincidentally they were having a huge markdown sale for their C Class. I was told the only one left were black in colour. Well I didn’t want a black Mercedes car, but I booked one anyway , thinking it was better than nothing. One day before delivery of the car, I imagined that I was driving a silver one, not a black one.
The next morning, I was awaken by a call from the sales team. I was informed that they now have someone letting go of their booking of a silver one and it’s now available. The salesperson had remembered that I originally wanted a silver car. So the next day, I was driving a silver Mercedes just like I had imagined weeks earlier!
So what do you want to have? Who do you want to become? Start making a decision and start imagining. Magic happens after that.
There are many people who have had direct and conscious experience in creating something or achieving a goal by using the power of imagination. But as time passes, they start to think back and they start to question whether could be just merely coincidental, or something that would have had happened anyway. We must regularly exercise our power of imagination in our daily lives. The reason is this, if you neglect to use it, over time you will find your faith diminish. And as your faith diminish, you will find your will power to apply it to be reduced as well.
Recently, I was at the bookstore browsing at some photography magazines. In one of the magazines there was a section where they invite people to submit photos they have taken about a particular subject. They would select the top 10 and publish it. While I have never submitted my photos for any competition before, but standing there, I imagined my photo was published in that magazine. I made a mental note to send in a photo. One day, I remembered a photo of seagulls by the beach that I had taken in Bondi Beach in Sydney, and I had a strong hunch to send in that particular picture. Before the end of the month, I emailed that photo to them, and in a hurry too, before I left for a trip. And due to my busy schedule, I completely released it and forgot about it.
After a few weeks when I came back from a trip to Hong Kong, I went to the bookstore again. By this time I had given up hope of my photo being published. I picked up a copy of the latest issue of that magazine, and flipping to a page, I recognized one of the photo to be my seagulls photo! Now I am not a professional photographer by any means, but that demonstration is truly assuring to me about the power of imagination and following one’s hunch.
I must remind my readers and students that if you do not practise your power of imagination regularly, you will tend to drift in your imagination. By drifting, I mean not using your imagination for any particular goal or any definite purpose. We often sidetrack and use our imagination to recall past events,assume unpleasant events, remind ourselves of current facts – instead of using our Creative Imagination to CREATE and MANIFEST the things we want. Remind yourself so that you will not fall into that trap of drifting. Exercise your power of imagination today. What do you want?
We exist in many versions of realities. Creation is done in the form of Infinite Probabilities. All things are possible in the mind of God because all things already exist (or “co-exist” in another probable reality).
In this infinite universe there co-exist many versions of probable realities, therefore each “new decision” is not really new- it already exist in a probable world and needless to say along with its own probable consequences.
We are shifting between realities all the time. With each thought, decision, intention, word and action, we are travelling in this vast system of infinite possibilities. The freedom and choice is limitless. Our “I am” is truly an unlimited Being that can occupy limitless states that it desires to experience.
What then, is the tool or method that we use unconsciously to shift between realities? That ‘thing’ is none other than our consciousness. Think about it for a moment. What holds you in your current reality? It is your mind. Your mind is made up of your thoughts.
Your beliefs about yourself, about people, about money, about health, about the world, these beliefs that you hold in your mind are determining the conditions you experience. A person who always think thoughts of success will attract success. A person who always think about lost opportunities, lost of wealth, bad luck, will keep on attracting what he continues to think. In short, in your mind, what kind of world do you belief that you live in? That is your mental dwelling place. Your mental dwelling place is aligning you to a probable reality that matches what you believe in.
Yet we are all beings with free will. Spiritually asleep to our limitless freedom, we think in limitation and thus enter into a world of limitation. To be spiritually awake to our limitless freedom, we can choose any mental state to live in and then shift our “I” into an alternate reality(conditions) that we desire.
Bear in mind that we do not get teleported into another reality. But from our personal own point of view, when we shift into another probable reality, our conditions around us change naturally. Sometimes gradually, sometimes suddenly.
When I wanted to attract to me an ideal apartment for rent in 2005, I put myself in an ideal apartment that I desired. And I did it all in my mind. I was changing my mental dwelling place. In my imagination, I put myself in an apartment in the city centre, high up above the city, with city views and water views. I told myself that the rent was really affordable. At that time, in my reality I was co-leasing an apartment with a French student. My share of the rent was $215 per week for my room. Well, I changed my mental dwelling place while physically living in that room. I didn’t even start looking for a new apartment, but it found me.
About 1 month later, one day I was walking in the city and right beside me was a notice stuck to the traffic light for a 2 bedroom apartment in the city center for $400 per week. I figured I could live in one bedroom for $200 per week (cheaper than my current rent) and rent out the other room to another student. I called for an inspection, and the person said she just put up the notice 5 minutes ago. She showed me her apartment – it was in the city centre, on the 34th floor, had views of the city below, had water views, and even mountain views. She said she was renting but decided to break her lease to go back to her country, and she was helping the leasing agent to find new applicants. I was the first to view it, but after a few days, she told me several other people were also applying. Well, I did more specific mental work to secure the apartment. Within 3 weeks, I was living in that apartment.
The Owner of the apartment decided himself not to raise my rent of $400 per week for 3 years. When the market rate was $520 per week, he still refused to increase my rent. One day I asked the Owner why he rented the apartment below market rate to me, he simply said “Well, I like you. I figured you are the type of tenant that I want, you are clean and you don’t throw wild parties. Not like some previous tenants who threw parties and trashed the place and cost me thousands of dollars to fix up. That’s why I refused to raise your rent even when the agent kept recommending me to do so.”
I did not try to put that thought into his mind. I merely lived in my ideal dwelling place in my imagination, and then things happened naturally. The current tenant decided she wanted to break the lease to return to her own country, and when I got the apartment, the Owner had this idea that I was his ideal tenant and refused to raise the rent.
So which reality do you want to live in? In one probable reality you are already there.
You can choose the conditions that you want, and then imagine it. Do it consistently and regularly, and very soon your vibrations will match up to your ideal reality and bring that reality to you.
There does exist certain spiritually developed individuals who have trained their minds to perform mental phenomena known as extra sensory perception. Neville Goddard in his lectures often spoke of his friend and teacher Abdullah, whom when Neville saw him for the first time, Abdullah came to Neville(a stranger) and said “Neville, you’re 6 months late!”. One of my mentors Harold Sherman wrote in one of his books about his encounter with one such mentally developed person. This person’s name was a detective named Harry Loose. Here’s an excerpt from one of Sherman’s books:
There is an old mystical saying: “When the pupil is ready, the teacher appears.” This seemed to have been borne out in our case because, in July, 1921, while serving as newspaper reporter on the Marion, Indiana, Chronicle, I was assigned to cover the Redpath Chautauqua Program and to review the lecture on “Crime and Criminology” by the Chicago policeman and detective Harry J. Loose.
There was nothing in what he said on the platform to indicate that Mr. Loose possessed any unusual psychic powers, but when I felt strongly impelled to call at his hotel that evening and seek a personal interview with him, he astounded me by calling me by name (Loose said “Come in Sherman!” when Sherman was at the door) and stating that he had known he was to meet me at this time for the past three weeks! He then explained that a highly spiritual woman, ninety-six years of age, who resided near Boston, had given him the equivalent of a college education while he slept at night; and that she was attracting young people to him on this lecture trip who had a potential for psychic development, who needed encouragement. He said she could “tune in” on the minds of such people as she mentally surveyed the towns he was to be in—and transmit to the ones she wanted him to meet the impulse to seek him out. According to Harry, he had been waiting in his room for me to appear!
There followed three of the most remarkable and inspiring hours I have ever experienced on this planet, during which Harry told me more about myself than I had been aware: He predicted that I would go to New York City in two years or so in pursuit of a writing career; that if I kept up my interest in the higher powers of mind, we would likely meet again in this life; but that it might be as long as twenty years, because he had a “mission” to perform and would be dropping out of sight for a time after his lecture tour was completed.
At midnight Harry asked me to excuse him for the next half hour as he always communicated with: Mrs. Loose from twelve to twelve-thirty. He said he would receive for the first fifteen minutes and send the last fifteen; that “Mother Loose,” as he called her, opened his mail in Chicago and would make a list of other matters he needed to know about. As he received information, he would make a note of it and take care of what commanded his attention.
Harry had been stretched on his bed in his BVDs when I came in, this hot July night, and had drawn up a chair, on which I was now seated, beside the bed, as though expecting company. I sat watching him, fascinated, as he lay on his back, commencing to draw deep breaths, eyes closed. Occasionally, during the first fifteen minutes, he would raise up and make some notes on a that he had placed on the bedside table. After a time pushed the pad away and remained unmoving. Finally, almost exactly at twelve-thirty, he opened his eyes, smiled at me, and said, “I have been permitted to let you see this little telepathic practice of mine. You and your Martha should be able to do this in time—if you continue to work at it.”
When I left the presence of this most unusual man that night, deeply moved, I could hardly wait to get home and report to Martha. As he shook my hand in a clasp that conveyed a feeling of indescribable warmth and assurance, Harry’s last words had been:
“Harold, your development is all up to you. Up to now, your mind has been filled with wonderment and doubts. You and Martha have been asking yourselves, ‘Could these higher powers of mind really exist? Could it be mostly imagination or hallucination or wishful thinking? What can you really believe or accept as the truth?’ It’s a long journey and you’ll have many disillusionments, but when you may be assailed with doubts, perhaps you will remember this night and take new heart. Goodbye until we meet again!”
Harold Sherman would eventually train himself to be able to receive thoughts telepathically, as evidenced in his pioneering experiment in long distance telepathy with the Artic explorer Sir Hubert Wilkins in the 1930s. Wilkins went to the North Pole in search of lost Russian pilots while Sherman lived in New York and received mental images telepathically from Wilkin’s mind. Sherman successfully proved that telepathy is possible even at long distance, and his experience and experiment was recorded in his book Thoughts Through Space (available from amazon).
Harold Sherman also noted in one of his books that Harry Loose once demonstrated (albeit unintentionally) that he had the ability to not only have an out-of-body-experience (OBE), but to have his astral body seen by a hotel staff! The story goes like this: Mr Loose made an arrangement to meet with Harold Sherman for the following week. Loose took an afternoon nap while thinking about Sherman. Sherman was in another city on holiday with his family that afternoon. When Sherman returned to the hotel, the hotel staff gave a note to Sherman that “Mr Loose was here”. Surprised, Sherman called Loose, only to find that Mr Loose denied having left his house that afternoon. To test that the hotel staff had indeed saw Mr Loose, Sherman planned to have Mr Loose come to the hotel to meet the staff. As soon as the hotel staff saw Mr Loose (Loose had never met him before), he greeted Loose by name. When Loose asked the hotel staff what’s different about him this time, he remarked that when he first saw Mr Loose the week earlier, Mr Loose was wearing a blue tshirt. Mr Loose later told Sherman that he was wearing a blue tshirt that afternoon when he took a nap, and his astral body was seen by the hotel staff at the same time. Mr Loose expressed surprise that this phenomenon had happened without his intention!
Neville Goddard also spoke of having the same ability to manifest himself thousands of miles away from where his physical body was. He was in his bed in New York, and he imagined himself in place of his nephew who was in Barbados. When his sister came into the room to see his nephew, she saw Neville instead. Neville said that because we are living in imagination, we can therefore be where we imagine to be!
In the previous post, I recounted an experience in 2009 where I imagined and assumed myself in my friend’s old apartment, and within a short time I was physically drawn to be in that exact apartment physically! I was in there in imagination first, then I was led by some higher organizing power to be physically there.
Truly, higher powers of mind exist and can be developed with practice and training.
A lot of you have asked me to share more real stories of Law Of Attraction. I have shared a few stories in my ebooks with my readers. Those are just a few events that I shared with my readers to illustrate the wonderful law of attraction and how we can use it deliberately to achieve results that we want.
Here’s a post from a few years ago describing some strange coincidences that led me to an apartment that I often fantasized. In short, a friend of mind kept telling me stories about an old apartment that he once had, and I often made mental pictures and putting myself in that apartment IN MY IMAGINATION. I didn’t even know how exactly the apartment looked like. But one day, something surprising happened – I rented that exact same apartment that my friend used to live in! Click on the link below to read my post from many years ago to read the details! This real life story proves that man will be where he is in imagination!
These stories that I share also show my readers that I do not teach theories. I’m teaching a law of mind, a law of creation that I have proven to work in my own life. Imagination does create your reality if you know how to use it with direction and purpose.
Have you suddenly thought of someone whom you have not had in mind for a long time, only to get a phone call or letter from them on the same day?
Have you ever had a premonition that something was going to happen and it did?
Have you ever had a dream of an event or theme that later came to pass?
Have you ever had a strong urge to do or not to do something, and following events proved that your hunch was right?
We all have experienced something like this at some time in our life.
Here’s an example. Yesterday while at work I suddenly had a hunch to buy a few packing boxes to send some items. The idea developed that my friend C would be free to buy them for me should he go to the post office. I sent him a text message immediately and instantly got a reply. His first question was “How did you know I am at the post office now? This is spooky!” I told him that I only acted on my idea instantly.
He jokingly said “then you should focus your ESP to getting me a million dollars”. I jokingly replied to him “You had the opportunity early this year outside that cafe”. Earlier this year, he had spotted an abandoned suitcase outside his regular cafe. It turned out the suitcase was stacked with cash estimated up to a million dollars. The cafe owner reported the suitcase to police and it was reported in the media that day as the money was suspected to be linked to crime proceeds.
Anyway, while I mentioned that event to him, we discussed the implications had he chosen to take the suitcase instead of reporting to the cafe owner. And while our text chat was happening, he suddenly texted “Now this is even more spooky! I’m sitting in a cafe now and while we are talking about this and guess what I am seeing in this local newspaper!” He then sent me a photo of the article – “Police charges owner of suitcase linked to proceeds of crime”.
My thoughts have aligned with my friend’s activities of the day, creating meaningful synchronicities for him. It was as if my mind knew in advance what he was experiencing. You could say it’s instant Law of Attraction in action.
The best way to demonstrate synchronicities like these is to take immediate action on ideas that come into your mind. We must realise that every new idea is a future possibility awaiting to be created.
Do you have experiences like this? Maybe you had a dream that came to pass? Do not brush this off as coincidence. Do you know why? Because everyone of us have had these experiences before. So to scoff it off as “coincidence” means these are coincidences that we all have experienced! Doesn’t fit the meaning of coincidence anymore does it?
