THE MAGIC OF BELIEVING – THE POWER OF THOUGHT ENERGY (PART TWO)

INTRODUCTION:

Submitter’s Note: Craig has been studying and researching the human mind, the “last unexplored frontier” for the past decade and he is currently “working” on the connection (overlap) between mind and spirit, the relationship between psychology (science of the mind) and the spiritual world, God. A fascinating subject!

This article (in point form) is based on an excellent motivational,
up-lifting and inspiring book ‘THE MAGIC OF BELIEVING’ by Claude Bristol (written in the “thirties”). I am sharing the contents of this work in the spirit of encouraging and hopefully even inspiring those people, who really
want to achieve their fullest potentials to read this classic book, BELIEVE…and surprise themselves what happens.

Thank you sincerely, Mr Bristol for sharing your practical insight, words of wisdom and especially inspiration, which I’m passing on in the form of this series of articles from my notes taken from your book.
Powerful forces locked in your mind can turn desire into reality!
Learn to release them in this extraordinary book.
Just BELIEVE!
*
Perhaps this works like an electrical vibration
that sets the law of attraction into operation.
The belief changes the tempo of the mind or thought frequency. Like a huge magnet, it draws the subconscious forces into play, changing your whole aura and affecting everything about you…and often people and subjects at great distances. It then brings startling results – results you never dreamed possible.
There are countless references to the principle in the Bible.

What is the Subconscious Mind?
The best results in life are obtained by close harmony between the conscious and subconscious minds. The desire for success needs to be present in the conscious mind.

It works even when you are relaxing or sleeping. You wake up with the problem solved whilst sleeping. The judgement of the subconscious mind, which represents inherited instincts and the accumulation of experience is virtually infallible.

Just as the conscious mind is the source of thought, so the subconscious is the source of power. It’s a memory vault and gives a person strength, courage and faith in themselves. It’s a powerful sending and receiving station. A link with the spiritual world – past, present and future. In brief, the subconscious mind embodies the feeling andwisdom of the past, the awareness and knowledge of the present and the thought and vision of the future. It perceives by intuition; thus warning us of approaching danger.

“The subconscious mind will not take the trouble to work for those who do not believe in it.” Make it serve you;
SEE yourself as already successful. Continue to believe in the power and wisdom of the subconscious mind.

Then when you look back, you will see how the things you were called upon to do all formed a logical line of events, the last of which was your final arriving – the reward of your sincerest hopes and desires – your own triumphant personal success.
*
SUGGESTION IS POWER – through raising our EXPECTATIONS.

It’s the act of believing that is the starting force or generating power that leads to successful accomplishment.

The power of auto-suggestion. Once a belief becomes a deep conviction, things begin to happen.
Man’s mind becomes grooved to a certain pattern (like Germany and Japan before WWII). The power of repeated suggestion
is even mentioned even in the Bible (Genesis 30: 36-43).

The indomitable human spirit.

William James, father of modern psychology in America, declared that often our faith(belief) in advance of a doubtful undertaking is the only thing that can assure its successful occasion.
“Success or failure in business is caused more by mental attitudes even than by mental capacities.”

“As we think and believe, so we are.”
King Soloman: “As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he.”
– the Bible (Proverbs)

The subconscious mind always brings to reality what it is led to believe.
Visualise – “hold the picture” in your head.

“Where there is no vision, the people perish.”
– the Bible

One just has to believe; this works through intensified thought or mental picture making. “I realised a long time ago that a belief, which does not spring from a conviction in the emotions is no belief at all.”
– Evelyn Scott, American author (1893-1963).

“We influence events by very great desires.”

Our thoughts determine our carriage (posture).

Shakespeare: “Assume a virtue, if you have it not.”
Dr Emil Coue, French doctor declared that imagination was a much stronger force than will-power. When in conflict, the imagination always wins.

Charles Fourier, the French philosopher of more than a century and a half ago once declared that “the future of the world would grow out of the brain of man – shaped, controlled and directed by the desires and passions by which men are moved”.

There are comparatively few men with great desires – most people are content to fill tiny niches in their lives.

DESIRE is the motivating force of life itself – the keener, the more urgent the desire, the sooner its communication.
Two opposing thoughts (as a positive and a negative) cannot fill the same space at the same time in the human mind.
The subconscious mind will respond to the vibrations of the thoughts that are strongest in you.

Close the door on yesterday, as we live TODAY. Give your audience the BEST that is in you (my writing aim). There is a theory that the subconscious mind controls our age. It’s the constant and determined effort that breaks down all resistance and sweeps away all obstacles. Repetition of thoughts – the “tip tapping” impresses it on your subconscious mind and on the mind (sub) of others.
SNIOP = “don’t be susceptible to the negative influences of other people.”

To end off, a few thoughts in summary…

Whatever we fix our thoughts upon or steadily focus our imagination upon, that is what we attractWhat we focus on expands!
Everything starts with THOUGHT – it’s the seed, the source (rich) of ideas.
Then we need to ACT upon them.
Because “faith without action is dead.”

Firmly believe in the power of believing, work hard with passion, be patient and see “impossibilities become possibilities, the stair-case to your wildest dreams“.

Shared by Craig Lock (“Information and Inspiration Distributor, Writer for Self Empowerment, Incorrigible Encourager and People-builder”)

William James once wrote, Faith is the pillar of strength that allows man to achieve the impossible, reach the unattainable and solve the unfathomable.”

“The world we see that seems so insane is the result of a belief system that is not working. To perceive the world differently, we must be willing to change our belief system, let the past slip away, expand our sense of now, and dissolve the fear in our minds.”

“God creates us with different gifts. Each one of us comes into the world with a different collection of life circumstances that often severely challenge us, things that give us joy and in expressing our talents allow us to bless the people, the world around us.”

“The task ahead of you can always be overcome by the power within you…and the seemingly difficult path ahead of you is never as steep with the great spirit that lies within you.”
– craig

“Our talents are our gifts from God… but what we do with them
are our gifts TO God.”

“Together, one mind, one life at a time, let’s see how many people we can impact,empower, uplift, encourage … and perhaps even inspire to reach their fullest potentials.”
