Picture Your Good
This week a woman in our center announced she was changing her play. She was going to see her life and the players in it through a different lens. What she realized was that her past need not be her present. She could see it differently. in short, she could re-vision her life.
In 1910 Wallace Wattles wrote a book titled, The Science of Getting Rich. It is a book that speaks to living a successful life. In it he states, “You can grow to a limitless extent, because there is no end to mental growth.” We don’t wake up one day and our brain tells us, “oops I’m full can’t handle any more information.” If we choose to we never stop learning and growing. So we can continue to develop our faith, our understanding of spiritual principles, and lead a more and more happy and fulfilling life.
One key to spiritual growth is developing a life vision. It assists us in finding out who we are, what we value, and what our hopes and dreams are. We need to see ourselves as the person we want to become because all change begins in our mind. Louise Hay has a wonderful exercise in her book; You Can Heal Your Life. Visualize yourself having, being or doing what you would like to do. Feel every detail. Notice other people’s reactions, and no matter what their reactions are know you are on your correct path. We always know when we are following our perfect path and while support from friends and relatives is wonderful the only real support we need is from our creator who gave us the passion and urging to go in the direction our heart is pointing.
Ernest Holmes teaches that there are no barriers to our greater good. The only barriers are things of thought. Jesus said if you ask for bread you won’t receive a stone. Circumstances don’t create themselves. They are molded by our thought. Holmes wrote, “We learn to dance that we may dance. We learn to sing that we may sing. We learn to write that we may write. We learn to have faith that we may demonstrate it.” This week practice deepening your faith, read, meditate, journal, or pray. Begin wherever you are, start with small steps. See if your life begins to change. Be gentle with yourself. Remember that you have been given all the tools you need to live a magical life. As Neville Goddard reminds us, “All is yours. Do not go seeking that, which you are, appropriate it, claim it, and assume it. Everything depends on your concept of yourself, that which you do not claim as true of yourself cannot be realized by you.” Remember you are a spiritual powerhouse and see what you demonstrate.
