"It Works" and the "Magic of Believing"

"It Works" and the "Magic of Believing"

If you have not read "It Works: The Famous Little Red Book That Makes Your Dreams Come True!" by RHJ and "The Magic of Believing" By Claude Bristol, then do yourself a favor and do it.
"It Works" was written in 1923 so it came before 1948's "The Magic of Believing".
RHJ's book may be one of the ones that Bristol read in his quest for knowledge.
The two are very complementary.
In "It Works" RHJ tells you to decide on what you want and write it down making a list.
Claude Bristol says the same thing, but his desires are placed on a card like an index card and he also has other tricks for reinforcing it like the "Mirror Technique."

Also you may note that in RHJ's book, contrary to most current New Thought ideas, he says to to list what you want.
No have....want.
In the follow up book, "The Meaning of the Mark", he mentions several times people writing down their desires as in, "I Want" not "I Have".
But he also does say that you should feel as though you already have these things, so it is a combination of both.
That may go round to where Joseph Murphy said that saying "I have" is pointless at first, because you do not "have" and your mind knows you are lying to it.
He advocated saying "Health" instead of "I am healthy".

Anyway, like I said, if you have not read "It Works" by RHJ and "The Magic of Believing" By Claude Bristol, do it and look for the similarities.
And you can throw in RHJ's "The Meaning of the Mark" for good measure.

Neville Goddard - Breathing Technique

Neville Goddard - Breathing Technique

Neville spoke of a lot of different ways to reach your goals.
Feeling, the audio playback, seeing things visually, it wasn't just one thing.
In his lecture "Andrew" he gave a breathing technique.
He mentions it twice, once at the beginning and once at the end.

Here is the best that I could do transcribing the highlights of what he says at the end, the gist of it.

"Get into a lovely, quiet relaxed frame, no so called "Holy Attitude", forget that.
You're Holy when you are in love.
God is love, so if you'd love it for someone else, that's all that you need, that mood.
Wouldn't it be wonder IF she actually had it, if he had it, if they had it.
So you know exactly what you want now.
And then you imagine that you are seeing them.
You can see them in your mind's eye and see them vividly.
And then breath yourself into a rhythm.
 They are telling you that they have it.
And you are getting yourself worked up, mostly because you know that they are telling you that they have exactly what you know they want the in this world.
And then you reach a certain point and you explode.
(He mentions earlier breathing in and out and one deep inhalation and then explode)
Something actually goes out of you, it's power.
And you read the words, "Who touched me? For I perceive that virtue has gone out of me. At that moment she was healed."

"Work yourself right up into that state, then let it go. And do not raise one finger to make it so."

You Have To DO Something

You Have To DO Something

A lot of the time you hear people equate New Thought with "Magical Thinking".

Well it is magical thinking I suppose.
But you can think, feel, all you want, but unless you DO, nothing will happen.
The money, health, wealth, abundance, relationships will not just fall out of the sky.
You have to get out there and do.

Tony Robbins said, "Never leave the scene of an Intention without taking action".
Neville Goddard said many times to do the mental side, but to "go about your Father's business."

Now I have heard some, Reverend Ike for one, say that no matter what happens, if the money has to fall out of the sky, you will get it.
But even he admitted that it was a rare occurrence.

Yes I have seen money appear literally out of thin air.
But it does not happen often and since it is not a reproducable event, it is not a "Law".
It just does happen sometimes.
I have seen people healed out of the blue.
But not enough to call it a law.

Think, feel, affirm, chant, whatever you need to do.
But do as well.

I dont think that you will find a rich person anywhere that will tell you that all they did was affirm and feel and they became billionaires.
They did something.
The money had to come through acknowledged channels.

Listen to the old teachers like Hill, Nightingale, they all teach this.

Now I remember that Louise Berlay said that she locked herself in a bedroom for days and focused on one thing.
Carole Dore has the "I am at one with a tremendous amount of money" chant along with money smelling.
People use attraction sigils.

But you are not gonna hear a single billionaire say that he wished for money until it appeared.
He (or she) did something.

Here is a video by Earl Nightingale that gives some mental activities to try every day, and here is a link to a PDF that contains the lecture and more.

Miracle of Your Mind is Chapter 4.
