Tag: Law of Attraction
Have you noticed that if you have negative thoughts on certain subjects you will keep attracting similar events to create similar reactions in you? A person who is prone to anger will attract more situations to make him angry. The same goes with other emotions such as fear, hurt, jealousy, etc. It will appear at times that we are being tested on our ability to react, and whether we ‘pass the test’ will determine if we are free from relearning the same lessons again.
It is our reactions to the events of our lives that set our point of attraction. You are tested on a mental and emotional level all of the time. Your “I am” enters a state with each mental-emotional choice.
Let’s visit here a story from Robert Monroe’s book Far Journey. He described how one night he was doing astral projection and he was given a ‘test’ by his consciousness to experience an event. The scenario or event was created for him(in his mind) to experience, and his reaction observed:
“A huge white dog three times the size of our beloved Steamboat has him by the neck, the massive jaws firmly shaking Steamboat back and forth in quick jerks, Steamboat’s body already swinging limply.
(No, no!) I can’t let it happen! Is it really Steamboat? It is! He’s dead, Steamboat’s dead! I’ll kill that big son of a bitch, he’ll never . . .)
A huge white dog three times the size of Steamboat has him by the neck in massive jaws that are swinging Steamboat from side to side, Steamboat hanging limply.
(Steamboat’s dead! Dead! What a tragedy! I’ll miss him, I’ll miss him. Let go, big dog, I can take what’s left and …)
A big white dog much larger than Steamboat has him by the neck and is swinging Steamboat back and forth, Steamboat hanging relaxed, eyes closed.
(Well little fellow, if that’s the way it is, thanks for staying around as long as you did. We had fun together. You gave me a lot of ROTE that will always be a part of me…)
Still in the jaws of the big white dog, Steamboat raises his head slightly, opens one eye, winks at me, and grins.”
From the simulated event above, Robert Monroe was being tested on his emotional reaction. When first confronted with the event, he responded with rage/anger. When retested, he choose to feel depression/hurt/loss. The third time, he became wiser and he chose appreciation, gratitude and release. And he passed the test. The first 2 reactions created an emotional resistance in him, and he had to face the event again until he chose a better reaction. The final respond created a release and allowing things to be.
What frees us from the negative events of the past? It is your own thought reaction and emotional reaction to the event. Go test yourself every now and then. Be mindful of your reactions, especially to events that trigger strong negative emotions or negative thoughts. See if you can choose a better thought that will lead to a better feeling emotion. Once you find the right reaction that doesn’t cause any negative emotion, repeat the empowering thought/emotion while thinking of the event. This is a way to release negative blocks in your subconscious mind.
I have added in my youtube channel a new lecture by Neville Goddard (well, it’s really old, but new in the sense that many of you have not heard it before). Recorded in 1969 right after the moon landing, Neville Goddard delivered to his audience his concept of manifesting which he called The Law Of Assumption. This is one of the best of Neville’s lecture that I have in my collection.

I discovered Neville in 2005, when I first moved to Sydney. Before that, I have had many successful experience in manifesting with my mind and imagination, but one day I had a question: Is imagination more powerful when I imagine seeing myself or imagine myself in the scene? One day I was in the Adyar Bookshop in Sydney browsing some books, and I saw a book with a simple spine design called “Resurrection – Neville Goddard”. I felt compelled to open the book. I flipped it to a random page, and Neville was teaching me how to imagine. From then on, I was hooked. Within a few months I was dreaming of the golden liquid light in my spine that Neville talked about. I also developed lucid dreaming where I would be awake in my dream, and being in the dream as if it is a real world, knowing that I am asleep somewhere. I encourage anyone to listen Neville’s Law Of Assumption lecture and then check out the books by Neville below as well.
The conditions you are experiencing in your life now are the contents in your subconscious mind pushed out.
If you could turn your subconscious mind inside out, what do you get? You get reflections that matches your current conditions. Man lives in his subconscious mind, which is his Subjective Reality.
If a man’s subconscious mind believes in Lack, he can only perceive and experience Lack in his outer world. If he is experiencing abundance and wealth, it means his subconscious thoughts are those of abundance and wealth at the moment. The study of New Thought and Metaphysics revealed to us that we can change our conditions by changing our powerful subconscious mind.
The subconscious is our Inner World. Our Outer World is a projection that matches our Internal World. Our physical actions to change our External World are futile, unless we first change our Inner World. Right actions that produce results are actually inspired subconsciously.
The subconscious is power, the conscious is direction. In ancient times, the subconscious is called The Female Aspect, while the conscious is The Male Aspect. The female appears weak, but inwardly she is enduring and powerful. She has the power of influence over the actions of men. The female symbol is water – soft, adapting to its surrounding, yet the ocean and rivers are powerful forces that can submerge the entire world.
The male appears strong, but inwardly he is quick to change his mind and direction. The male symbol is Fire. The male must make his own decision and then slowly persuade and influence the woman into a decision. Likewise, the Conscious Mind must make a new decision to create new thoughts, in order to influence the Subconscious to change. It is said, the male’s drive for power and success is so that he can please the female. The male symbol is fire. Fire is quick to start and spread, but can also be wiped out quickly, especially by water. Fire can heat up water, but it takes persistence and time. Likewise, to influence our subconscious is like the male trying to win over the female. He must do so by gentle persuasion, consistency and persistence. A man changes his decision quickly, but when a woman is finally influenced, she is slow to change her mind.
There are plenty of symbology for the subconscious mind. The biblical flood is a symbology of the flood of facts. The subconscious (female aspect) which symbol is water, has the power to flood your world with facts. We are submerged by facts (which we call “conditions” or “reality”) once it is set in motion. Once you are in the flood, you can only take inventory of your thoughts, keep the good ones alive in a place with 3 decks (the Ark). The 3 decks are the Spiritual, Psychological and Physical of our Being. Once the flood subsides, you are then able to create your world anew.
About the Author: Charles Koh is the author of the ebook Secret Techniques Of Manifesting With Imagination and also the paperback book Creating Your Personal Reality which is now available from amazon.com
Many of us do not realize that when we think, we create thought forms. A thought form is a projection of mental energy . We are surrounded by our own thought forms and they constitute our own reality. Have you had a day when you are obsessed or preoccupied with a thought and you fail to observe the things happening around you? We all have, and we call it “preoccupied with a thought”.
What more, the next time someone describes something(such as “you know there’s a ramp that does a right turn (gestures with fingers), and then you see this round sculpture (moulds a miniature round shape with his hands), it’s right next to there(pointing to a point space while staring at it)” etc) to you in a conversation, watch how they point their fingers, gesture their hands and move their arm and draw things in the air while they stare at an area in mid air and talking to you. Sometimes they even assume that you are seeing what they are seeing. Yes, they are creating and moulding their own thought forms while describing to you. If you could make out approximately the size and configuration of the thought form, you could join in the fun and start pointing to areas in his thought form to keep the conversation going. If you made sense, he may say something like “Yessss, now you see/get it!”
One thing for certain, our thought forms are mostly habitual. We go around carrying the same beliefs, ideas, interpretations and concepts of things most of the time – unless we start to change them. The longer you have fed a thought form, the more energy you give to it, and it has a power of attraction to draw to you thoughts of similar nature. We even attract to us people who think along the same line as us, because of the inherent power of attraction behind thought frequencies.
From reading various case histories, it appears that thought forms can become ‘alive’ with intelligence itself. Ernest Holmes of the Science Of Mind movement wrote that “thoughts are intelligent”. Yes, thoughts being a thing of consciousness is intelligent. If you focus on a goal congruently and frequently, you are in fact charging it with the intelligence to fulfill itself.
According to Tibetian writings:
“Man is constructing thought-forms all the time, and is following unconsciously the same method as his Ego pursues in building his bodies, as the Logos follows in building his system, and as a planetary Logos uses in constructing His scheme.
A man speaks, and a very diversified mantram is the result. The energy thus generated swings into activity a multitude of little lives which proceed to build a form for his thought; they pursue analogous stages to those just outlined. At this time, man sets up these mantric vibrations unconsciously, and in ignorance of the laws of sound and of their effect. The occult work that he is carrying on is thus unknown to him. Later he will speak less, know more, and construct more accurate forms, which will produce powerful effects on physical levels.” (A Treatise on Cosmic Fire, p. 786)
Yes, we must learn to think less idle thoughts, and to construct more accurate thought forms. In my ebook Secrets Of Manifesting And Creating With Imagination, my main purpose was to teach you various techniques on how to construct more accurate thought forms on a systematic and frequent basis, so that you are able to energize the very thought forms that can manifest into your own reality.
I have found since I was around 20 years old that when you scatter your thoughts and energy with idle thoughts and mental ‘noise’, you will be scattering your mental resources. Therefore over the years, I have learned, researched, formulated and experimented with various methods – basically to come up with techniques that I can re-use over and over to achieve different aims. When I successfully manifested something in a miraculous way, I would go back in mind to ascertain what mental strategies I had used, and from that I create the techniques which I teach in my Secrets Of Manifesting And Creating With Imagination ebook. When you learn these techniques, you can still combine different techniques to suit your own mental style, capabilities and habits.
SECRETS OF MANIFESTING AND CREATING WITH IMAGINATION by Charles Koh.
This book teaches you the various mental strategies and techniques that have manifested results. You will learn Secret Techniques such as the Associated Scene Method, The Touch Technique, The Rewind The Negatives Method and the Ultimate Manifesting Formula among many others. The author uses personal case examples and experiences to elaborate how many of the techniques can be used and what outcomes resulted from such techniques. Check it out now!
Today I’m doing an introduction and review of one of my favourite authors.
Harold Sherman is a famous self-trained psychic and researcher, author in the subject of ESP (extra sensory perception). Unlike other famous psychics who were born with their special mental abilities, Sherman discovered the ability of the mind to receive thought through a personal experience.
One evening in Traverse City 1915, he was typing on the typewriter in his home in 1915, when it got quite dark he got up to turn on the light switch. But as his hands reached for the switch, a distinctive voice in his mind instructed “Don’t turn on the lights!”. This was such a strong command that he stopped, and returned to typing without turning on the switch. But minutes later, when it simply got too dark that he had to turn on the switch, as he reached for the switch again the same voice in his mind yelled “Don’t turn on the lights!”. Then suddenly there was loud banging on the front door downstairs and he ran down to open the door. As he opened the door, a man at the door said “Don’t turn on the lights! There is a faulty live electrical line down the road, in the past 10 minutes I’ve been banging at every door in the neighbourhood to warn people not to turn on the lights!”
Sherman thought, even if he did turn on the lights, probably no harm would have come to him. But what intrigued him was that his mind received that man’s strong thought before his physical arrival and verbal warning! We all have strange hunches and intuitions like this happened to us one time or another. But Sherman was determined to learn how he could receive thoughts at will, and also acquire the knowledge of how to transfer thoughts to others. After years of research and self experimentation, he became better at it.
In the 1937-1938, he did an experiment no person had ever done before. He took part in an experiment in long-distance telepathy with the famous artic explorer Sir Hubert Wilkins. A few Russian pilots were missing in the north pole, and Wilkins set out on a mission to try to locate them in the north pole. Sherman remained in New York and attempted to receive thoughts from Wilkin’s mind everyday. He would then write down each day’s impression, and then post it to a few notary public who had agreed to be witnesses in the experiment and file them. At the end of the experiment spanning about 1 year, it was found that more than 80% of Sherman’s notes matched Wilkin’s diary. Below are some of the entries.
December 20, 1937:
Regarding Wilkins, SHERMAN in New York has the impression that “You have some rare wine offered yourself and crew tonight.
WILKINS in the Arctic records: “Blueberry wine — not bad!”
January 24, 1938:
SHERMAN: “You are out somewhere — I see smoke curling up from fire — three tents appear to be nearby.”
WILKINS: “Wood stove in radio tent, always smoking or steaming in low temperature. Two tents.”
January 27, 1938:
SHERMAN: “Strange as it seems to record, you appear to be dancing tonight — or listening to dance music by radio.”
WILKINS: “Played victrola. Some tango records tonight, first time since arrival in North. Also trying to learn Russian by linguaphone, but alone as usual.”
During same “viewing,” SHERMAN also noted: “A dog seems to have been injured in Aklavik and had to be shot — was injury sustained in flight with others — or something falling on it? Quite a strong feeling here.”
WILKINS: “Out walking — came upon a dog dead on ice — it has been shot through the head — thought about it strongly for some time, wondered reason for killing.”
February 15, 1938:
SHERMAN: “Large box-like, crated affair seems to contain motor you have bought to replace damaged engine.”
WILKINS:”Engine in large square box.”
Later in his life, Sherman developed his mental skills so sharply that he became a famous psychic. Even the police sometimes asked him to solve crime using his ESP abilities.
Besides telepathy, Sherman also used his mental powers to save his life many times. On one occasion, he contracted a certain deadly throat fungus that according to medical research, is incurable and fatal. His doctor tried everything, nothing worked, and he was told to prepare for the worst as this fungus is recorded in medical journals as always deadly. Knowing that his only hope left was to use his power of mind to somehow attract to him an antidote, Sherman set out his mind to achieve that. Everynight he would visualize that someone, somehow gave him the antidote that cured his disease. His only hope was that such a person exist, and thru the power of his mind he could draw that man to him – somehow!
Many months passed, and he had told no one about his disease other than his wife and mother. One day, he was invited by a friend to go to a seminar about the pyramids of Egypt. He was so impressed by the speaker of the seminar that after the seminar he had this strong urge to invite the speaker to lunch to further discuss about the subject of pyramids. The next day, while at lunch with the speaker, Sherman had to clear his throat several times. The speaker casually asked “do you have some throat problem?”. Sherman’s first response was to brush it off as nothing, but an inner voice in his mind said “Tell this man!”. So Sherman told him about his throat disease. The speaker then said, “do you have a pen of paper? Write this down”. He then continued to dictate to Sherman a list of things he ought to get from the chemist – so many ounce of glycerine, so many ounce of creosote….etc. After he finished, Sherman asked, “what is this for?”, which the speaker responded “this is the specific cure for your type of throat fungus.” “But how?” Sherman asked. The speaker explained that many years ago he was in Africa with a Japanese scientist, and the natives contracted this same type of rare throat fungus. It killed many locals, and eventually the Japanese scientist developed a cure for it that saved the locals lives. Sherman cut short the luncheon, went to buy the list of chemicals and brought them to his doctor. The doctor applied it on the fungus and the fungus shrivelled and fell off. So Sherman had used his mind to attract to himself to meet with this speaker who was the only person in the country that knew about the cure.
After stories like this, can critics still deny the existence of the Law of Attraction ?

Do you believe that your thoughts have power? Most people ask”Invisible thoughts and words, what power can they have?”
This is a photo of a water crystal under a microscope by Japanese author Masaru Emoto. The water was exposed to the words “Love and Appreciation”. When frozen, the water is then put under a microscope and certain beautiful crystals will start to form under the microscope.
Now stop and think for a moment. How do you feel when you are feeling Appreciation, Gratitude, Love, Joy? You feel lighter, your chest area feels a tingly sensation as your energy moves freely. Now compare that to when you are feeling Resentment, Hate, Disappointment, Frustration. You will feel the energy get stuck in your chest, feelings of heaviness and stagnation. Feeling positive or negative is a significant factor of your level of health and energy. Not only that, when you think positive thoughts and feel negative emotions, you will be in a very different frequency of vibration than if you were not. And when your vibration is the frequency of Love, Gratitude, Appreciation, you will be attracting more experiences to validate those feelings.
And just think that all this we can control by choosing what thoughts to focus at each moment of our day.
It is incredible, but it is true. I will relate to you another instance how imagination is used to manifest what you want. Early last week, I was thinking about buying my dream car, a Mercedes C class. I imagined I was driving it, and used the speed up method as I described in my book. Frankly its been my dream car for years, but I didn’t use my mind power to attract one to me. I didn’t know how I was going to afford one, as everytime I thought about the car in the past, I would tell myself it’s out of my price range. But here I was, imagining I have the car and that it was mine. Then I forgot all about it.
Come Saturday, I was at lunch with my sister and mum, and I suddenly had this idea we should go check out the Mercedes Benz showroom. I had no intention to really buy one, because I didn’t have all the funds. I just wanted to admire the cars in the showroom.
While looking at different cars in the showroom, the salesperson came to talk about the features of the car. We were looking at the CLC, which is a sports coupe version of the C-class. As I was sitting in it, she suddenly said that all the CLC demo cars were on special promotion, and this is the final week of the promotion. She named a figure and it was indeed surprisingly low priced for a luxury car. They were discounting the normal price by 25%. It would include the car, the registration, the stamp duty and also the first year’s insurance. This made the car within my affordability range!
So I asked if they had silver or grey colour, and the salesperson said no. She said over the past 2 weekends these have been selling like hot cakes. They have sold 20 of them, and the only ones left were 2 black ones with sunroof, and a grey one without a sun roof. I was there for a long time, considering how I liked grey or silver with a sunroof, but all they had were black with sunroof. As their office was closing, I booked a black one with sunroof as it was the 2nd last one available, thinking actually black didn’t look too bad after all. Well they said the car will arrive next week. It will be a new car, but they will sell it at the same price as the demo. This new batch was meant to be demo cars, but because I book them before they arrive, I get them as brand new.
Then last night, as I was thinking about my new car, I deliberately imagined it was a silver one, instead of black.
This morning, guess what happened?! As I was getting dressed to go to work, I received a sms from the salesperson. She said, after this morning’s meeting with her team, she now has one last silver CLCs with sunroof. I called her immediately to ask, and she said someone who booked a silver CLC last week from the same batch that hasn’t arrived, now they wanted to get a black one instead. Would I take it? It is the last silver one. I said yes, definitely. Now I have my dream car, at affordable price (25% discount),with a sun roof, brand new instead of demo, and yes it is silver!
When you set your mind to use imagination to manifest, all things will conspire to help you get what you want.
If you’d like to learn how to manifest like that by using your imagination, you can learn all the advanced techniques I use from my book Secret Techniques Of Manifesting And Creating With Imagination.
When you train your mind to function at a deeper state, you can make your intents manifest at a shorter interval of time. When you have learned how to enter into that deeper state of concentration, you can give your subconscious an instruction and it will be carried out to the letter for you – in a very mysterious way. You can use it in such a way that you subconsciously control other people’s action and thoughts, to solve your everyday problems and to achieve your dreams.
It was the year 2005, when I first moved to Sydney to work, I was temporarily renting a room from a girl who needed someone to fill in one of her empty room in her apartment. Her name was Carol and her boyfriend rented the apartment for her, while he lived in another apartment. To help her pay the rent, she sublet the 2nd room out to make ends meet. I had an agreement with her that my rent also covered the utility bills.
When I found another place to live, I told Carol I wanted to move out in 2 weeks time. She agreed to it and said she would return my bond money when I moved out. But 3 days before I was moving out, her boyfriend came, sat me down and told me because I was not giving him 1 months notice, he was not going to return me the security bond. I reasoned with him that my agreement with Carol stated that only 2 weeks was required. He disagreed, saying she was “stupid”, and that he was the holder of the lease and that he should have the final decision. He said he would give my bond back if I found someone to take over my lease. He said he had been posting advertisements and notices in universities for 1 week, and not one person responded. Because I was moving out in 2 days time, I didn’t have any time to spare. I quickly put up notices in the city to try to get someone.
I affirmed that I have found the perfect person to take over my lease. The first day, nothing happened. On the 2nd day, I began to get worried. But I kept doing mental work, using various methods (you can learn some of the methods in my book Secret Techniques For Manifesting). That evening, a British backpacker called me wanting to inspect the apartment immediately. I showed him the place and he agreed to move in the next day – the same day that I was supposed to move out. And he agreed to pay $20 more per week, as I tried to help Carol out by advertising a higher rent.
But in the morning of the following day, when I informed Carol’s boyfriend that I have kept my part of the bargain to find a tenant to take over my lease, I asked him to confirm if he would be keeping his end of the bargain by returning my full security bond of 2 weeks rent. He said “I’ll talk to you this evening”.
That statement worried me. My hunch told me that he was playing some game and would not be keeping his end of the bargain. I was at my office when I called him, and I decided to take things into my control. Sitting at my desk, I went into a deep state of mind for a while and instructed my subconscious mind to “ensure that I get my full bond back tonight if he tries to break his end of the bargain”. I made sure my subconscious mind understood the instruction.
That night, after I moved my things out of the apartment, I went back to the apartment to get my bond back from Carol’s boyfriend. He was there, but Carol wasn’t there. So he said, “Tell you what Charlie, I have decided to keep your bond. That will cover for the utility bills for your share.” (eventhough he knew from Carol that my rent included utlities).
As I started a heated debate with him, suddenly an inner voice in my mind said to me:
“Stop arguing and get out of here. You have the money! You have the bond money from the British guy, and he knows you have it but he has temporarily forgotten to collect it from you! Stop the conversation and leave now!”
It was a voice I heard internally, as though my subconscious was giving me direct instructions what to do. Then I remembered, a day earlier, when the British backpacker expressed interest to move in, Carol’s boyfriend asked for bond money ( amounting to 2 weeks rent) from him. But the British guy said he needed to go to the ATM to get the cash. And as he went to find a ATM, Carol and her boyfriend decided to go out for dinner and told me to collect the bond money on their behalf and pass it to them the next day. But now in his state of greed to confiscate my bond and to break his end of the bargain, he has totally forgotten to ask from me the British guy’s bond money, although he has acknowledged to the British guy that the bond is paid! In summary, he thought he could swindle me of my bond money, while in effect he had forgotten to collect a slightly larger sum of money from me.
I followed my subconscious prompting, stopped arguing and left. As I was leaving I said “I won’t forget this! You think you’ve won, but you haven’t.” As I was waiting for a taxi downstairs with my bags, he came down arrogantly to walk to his car, thinking he had won. That night, I was amazed how the event had unfolded and my instruction to my subconscious was carried out to the letter. I now had my bond back, despite his intention not to return it to me.
The next day, Carol phoned me and she was very apologetic for her boyfriend’s bad behaviour, told me she would return the bond money to me herself. I then told her I still had the British tenant’s bond money which was more than my own bond, and I would return to her the difference.
If you recall the instruction that I gave to my subconscious, to synchronise the sequence of events so that I would get my full bond money back from Carol boyfriend who was intending to break his promise to return it to me. As the events unfolded, he developed temporary amnesia about the bond money that he asked me to collect from his new tenant on his behalf, thereby indirectly leading me to get hold of the bond money that he owed me.
This is an example of how mental influence works. Your subconscious mind can do wonders, it can protect you from dishonest people and make things right. It can help you solve problems in your daily life.

Last Friday night while walking in the city, I found a wallet on the sidewalk right outside a shop. The wallet was on the ground, with all the cards and contents strewn around. There wasn’t any money in it, but I felt the student card may be important to the owner. I took the wallet to the police station.
As I came out of the station, I my eyes were drawn to a $2 coin on the sidewalk. Well I believe when you do the right thing and you will be rewarded in some ways. This sets your point of attraction via action. Yes it is karma. But karma (which means action/reaction, and the law of sow and you shall reap, give and you shall receive) also works on other levels other than your actions.
You can set your point of attraction with your thoughts and words as well.
For example, a few weeks earlier, I affirmed abundance for a few nights. After that I felt like the concept of abundance is settled within, everywhere I went I found money. While walking in the city one night, a guy was crossing the street in a rush and dropped all his coins from his pocket. He was in such a rush that he told me “go pick it up, it’s yours”. I picked them up, about $8 worth of coins.
And another time a few years ago, I picked up a $50 note on the supermarket floor. Then a few days later while crossing the street, a $10 note rolled with the wind on the street to my feet, right in the middle of a busy 4 lane intersection! And a few days later another $20 on the floor right outside KFC.
I told my friend about my picking up free money, she didn’t believe me. Then that night, while walking with her, my eyes were drawn to about 20 metres in front of us, a $20 note on the footpath near the bus stop. There were a few people at the bus stop, none of them saw it. My friend didn’t see it either. This came at the right time to convince her.
Still another night, I found $2 coin and she said it’s a coincidence, and I was trying hard the whole night to manifest picking up money AGAIN to show her. Then after I sent her home and when I was walking home, my eyes were drawn to a folded $10 right outside a carpark.
In counted in the year 2005, I picked up more than $200 in total on the floor, sidewalk, street, ground, library lockers, parking meters throughout the 1 year.
Here’s the trick to picking up money. Each time you pick up money, keep them in your backpocket, or somewhere that you will not spend them easily. They will serve as reminders of money abundance to you. And the more you think about them, the more you will pick up. The more people you tell each time, the more you are attracting to you. Each time you think, talk, imagine it, you reactivate that vibration that will draw you you more.
Once I had a friend who believed me when I told her this. She bought a new purse to keep all the coins she picked up. Each time she picked up some coins, she will make it a point to tell me. After 2 months, her purse was heavy with coins. I once went to buy something together with her, she even picked up money in a busy marketplace filled with people.
By the way, Warren Buffett, the world’s richest person, picks up coins when he sees one. His concept is , with each penny you pick up, it is a symbol of thousands of dollars coming to you in the future. Millions perhaps.
I know a lot of people do not bother to pick up money that they dropped by accident. If they dropped 50 cents, they say it wasn’t meant to be theirs, or they feel undignified to pick up such a small amount. What they do not know is, if you do not treasure or respect the small, it tells a lot to the Universe (and your subconscious mind) how much you treasure money. It shows your level of allowing and acceptance of Supply.
Why don’t you give this a try? Test yourself to see if what I’m saying is right.
What are you thoughts?
The universe is made of energy and intelligence. Without energy, nothing moves. The act of creating requires energy to be possible. Without energy, even the simplest tasks become hard and impossible to be accomplished. When your body is low on life energy, the fuel of life, you feel depressed and down and powerless. Your habitual mood can also be caused by the amount of energy you have in your body. When you are low in energy, you do not have enough resources to ‘boost up’ your vibration to a positive emotion.
Life energy is also what makes up your personality and level of magnetism. Communication between 2 people is all about an exchange of energy.
To manifest deliberately we need to have a good supply of Life Energy. You will find that your manifestations appear faster and easier when you have an abundance of Life Energy. In Hawaian teachings, life energy is called ‘Mana’, which is an essential ingredient in manifesting your desires and prayers.
Your body automatically recharges when you are in a relaxed state mentally and physically. In fact, meditation is a method used by ancient mystics in India and China to accumulate life energy. Martial arts practitioners who knows the real secrets of life energy, often claim that standing meditation is the best way to gather life energy. Ancient mystics often taught about being “stingy with energy”, to avoid waste of the precious energy of life.
Be conscious of what you are spending your energy on. Mental stress and mental labour actually uses up more energy than physical labour. Negative emotions eats up life energy unnecessarily. Also, a lack of sleep for one night will drain your life energy reserves that may take you a few days to recover. Scientific reports have shown that excess of these activities use up a lot of nerve energy: sex, digestion and excessive negative thinking. Overindulgence and overdoing any activity is never beneficial. The best way is moderation, the middle way.
When you are filled with vibrant vital energy, you will reach a level of life energy level that you feel naturally happy. At that state, you become lucky. Things seem easy, you accomplish with little effort. You are in a state of attracting good to you because you feel good.
Have you heard of the Law of Attraction? The phrase was made popular by the 2006 DVD titled “The Secret”.
But in reality, the term Law of Attraction is not new, nor was it any secret! Those in the Metaphysics circle said “What? The Law of Atrraction is a Secret? What are you kidding me? I have books from the 1890s talking about that Law!” The reason is that LOA has been known and used for a long time in the New Thought and Metaphysics field. If you haven’t already known, within the New Thought and Metaphysics/Mental Science circle, the success of the DVD/book ’the Secret’ is considered just another marketing breakthrough, not a spiritual breakthrough.
I believe Judge Thomas Troward was the first person to coin the words “Law of Attraction” in his books in the 1890′s. Troward was a New Thought teacher with a sharp mind and wisdom of a sage. Check out one of his books Wisdom of Thomas Troward. Probably his most famous book is ‘The Edinburgh and Dore Lectures‘ which made him a very popular author in the New Thought circle. Ernest Holmes is probably the most famous student of Troward. Holmes founded the Science of Mind movement. He was able to heal many types of illness by distant mental healing as described in his books. Check out his famous book Science of Mind here.
Troward’s idea of life is that there is a Mental and Spiritual Law that reflects in our outer life what we think and believe in our mind. Now Thomas was a writer and painter, and he went to India and became a judge.
Is it ever a wonder to you that poets, writers, artists and musicians who have trained themselves to use both sides of their brain, who are mindful about what they think about and what ideas come into their mind - that these are usually the people who know about the Power of Imagination and Mental Science? This is because those who know about the nature of the mind (in particular the subconscious mind- where writers and artists draw their ideas) know that the mind has untapped creative powers that can synchronize events and reshape our world.
One of Troward’s student named Genevieve Behrend wrote a book about what she learned from Troward, and how she was able to use the Law of Attraction successfully. Firstly, she used the Law of Attraction to become Troward’s first private student (Troward at that time refused to take any private students). But using the Law of Attraction, Genevieve Behrend was able to make Troward slowly change his mind and accept her as a live in student in his home. Behrend also manifested about $20,000 (if I remember correctly), which was no small sum in those days. Behrend’s books is called ‘Your Invisible Power’ and ‘Attaining Your Desires.’
I first discovered the existence and workings of this law of attraction when I was 18. What happened was, it was my first year away from home attending college and I spent a lot of time contemplating about “Life”, and I practised the buddhist concept of mindfulness. The result was that I started to recognize synchronicities. Have you ever focused your thought on someone, and then keep running into him or her at the most unusual time and place? Or have you ever suddenly thought about someone, and then receive a letter or phone call very soon after?
What happened to me was, I wanted to meet someone I had not met for sometime, and I summoned my mental energy to that thought, and later that night I ran into that person at the supermarket. At first, I thought, what a ‘miracle’, I asked for a meeting and I got it! t was like a prayer answered.Then 2 days later, I ran into the very same person again in an ice cream shop near my house! (Note: Prior to that I had never ran into this person outside of University.) I knew it wasn’t by chance but an arranged coincidence (that’s the best definition of ‘Synchronicity’). Somehow, my focused thoughts about that person had attracted them into my experience.
If you still think it was all coincidence, let me tell you a real experience of Mark Twain (for those who don’t know who he is- he was a celebrated figure who wrote novels such as “Adventures of Huckleberry Finn” and “Tom Sawyer”). OK, one day, Mark Twain was looking thru his house, trying to find newpaper clippings about him from a certain date. He needed them as reference for an article he was writing, but he couldn’t find them. His desire for them was so great, that he summoned his inner mind to find them for him.
A few days later, while he was walking down a busy street, someone emerged from the busy street crowd and said “Mr Clemens!” (Mark Twain’s real name was Samuel Clemens).
“Mr Clemens! I’m so glad to find you here! I am a great fan of yours and I’ve been collecting every newspaper articles about you for many years! And this morning, while in my house I had this feeling to give you some of these clippings that I think you may like to have! I was going to go to your house, but now that I run into you here…!”
He put some newspaper clippings into Mark Twain’s hand. Before Mark Twain could say anything more, the man shook his hand and left into the crowd. When Mark Twain went home to inspect the clippings that he got, he found that one of them was the very newspaper article that he had wanted so urgently days ago! This my friend, is the power of our subconscious mind and the law of attraction, if you knew how to use it.
This was exactly how I always got the exact salary offer that I conditioned my mind to accept, whenever I apply for a new job. Once, I had wanted a job that was paying $90,000, when my actual salary was not even close nor within range. I conditioned that figure in my mind for a few weeks, and at last I got a few interviews. During the interview, when I was asked how much I wanted, I said “above $80,000″, because the recruitment agent that referred me told me that position was around the $80,000 – $85,000 range. And what do I get as the first offer a few days later? Exactly what I conditioned for weeks – “$90,000″. Coincidence?
The same thing happened a few years earlier, where I was told by an agent “No, no, your current salary is $39,000, to ask for $55,000 for this new position is too high a jump. If you could get $45,000 you can count yourself lucky.” But I really wanted $55k because I had thought one of my other friend was getting $55k (which I have to admit was my own misconception at that time. I later found out that he was only getting $45k, (:P) but anyway, it pays to aim higher). So for 2 weeks, I conditioned $55k into my mind with a mental technique I learned before. At the end of the week, when I received the only job offer I got, I was asked “How much do you want?”. I said “If I can get at least $50,000, I will take it”.
Five minutes later, the agent called and said “well he wants to offer you more than that. His offer is $55,000. How does that sound?” Well that sounds exactly like the law of mind is working. At that time, if I told people these stories, majority of them will think I’m a nutcase. In those days, the concept was - if you know something weird like this, keep it to yourself if you don’t want to be called ‘crazy’. That was a few years before “The Secret” was published. This quote below was what I believed in:
”To double your income, you have to believe in your mind that you are worth twice as much as in your job.” Ben Sweetland (Grow Rich While You Sleep)
The power of our mind is the power of belief first and foremost many good and hardworking people do not go far because they do not believe they deserve more in life. The first step to success is to believe that you can, you will, you must and you are going to be successful. It is even better if you can believe that you are ALREADY successful or rich or healthy.
When I first read Ernest Holmes books(Science of Mind), I was amazed that he said our thought and words have such power that each thought (or word) has a force and intelligence to act. The mind does not distinguish between what is imagined and what is real. You imagine an event in your mind or say something to yourself in your mind, your mind actually thinks it is happening. Your subconscious mind goes to work to give you what you persistently focus on with feeling. That is why Emerson said “We are what we think about all day long.” It is the law of “Sow and you shall reap”. You sow a thought seed in the ground of your mind, if you water it with repetition and emotion, one day you will reap. This is the Law of Attraction.
Now that you have read the stories above (I have many more stories), do you believe in the Law of Attraction or power of your Subconscious mind? Feel free to comment.
