Henry Ford also said, "Whether you think you can or you think you can't, you're right."
Recently, I was in Dearborn, Michigan at the Henry Ford Museum. Here are some awesome inspirations that I got while I was there. Watch the video to learn more.
There are a few things I know I CAN do. I know I can drive this RV all over the country. I know I can also choose to change my mindset.
There are a lot of things we CAN do. Sometimes, we just need to give ourselves more credit.
What is something you can choose to do today?
Raymond Holliwell says, “Great things are no less possible than small things, and it's the great things that will follow whoever uses the law with faith and understanding. Whatever your present state or condition may be, there is a better and larger future in store for you.”
You cannot rise into the better and greater things unless you take action.
A quarter in the eyes of the Universe is equivalent to thousands of dollars. If you can manifest a quarter on the street, you can manifest $10,000. That's what I got the summer that I reached out to the Universe and told her that is what I needed.
In order to be successful by utilizing the principles we have learned over the last few weeks, we will be given ideas from the Universe when we visualize our future. But when we're given the ideas, we have to follow through with...
Today we're talking about the Law of Obedience, which is basically doing the next right thing. Watch this video to learn more.
Raymond Holliwell defines the Law of Obedience as, “Living in the present. Do your highest duty every day, forget the past, and let the future take care of itself.”
There's nothing you can do about the past. In the present you can make a vow to change your thoughts, behavior, and actions.
Stay in the moment. Stay focused. Do the best you absolutely can so you can create a better future.
My question for you today is this...how can you stay in this moment today?
Also make it a point to notice when those past memories come up where you're being down on yourself and demeaning because you made a mistake. If it was yesterday, or even two years ago, forgive yourself, love yourself, let it go, and decide to change your behavior in the future.
Start focusing on what you would love to co-create with the...
Today we are talking about the Law of Sacrifice.
This one is not so fun, but something always has to be sacrificed to create something else. Watch the video to learn more.
That might mean going to bed earlier so you can get a good night's sleep. Maybe it means breaking off that relationship with a family member, so you can have peace of mind. It could mean spending an hour longer at work instead of binge watching your favorite TV show. Whatever it is, one thing has to be sacrificed for the other.
Raymond Holliwell says, “Beginning of such success is first the desire for discipline of your time and thought. An undisciplined life is an insane life.”
With the Law of Sacrifice, it's about getting disciplined about what's more important. Is it more important to go out every night to run for 30 minutes to get in better shape? Or is it more important for you to sit on the couch and relax?
Both sound great. But for you, at this moment...
Today we are talking about the Law of Resistance. We try to hold on and control so much outside of us, and we're using that push energy to try to make it happen.
But that's not the way of the Universe. We want to sit back and let it be. We take action with the ideas we have, but not force anything to happen. Watch the video to learn more.
Raymond Holliwell says, "If a man resists a situation, he will have it always with him. If he tries to run away from it, like a shadow, it follows him. If he ignores the hardness of the condition and fearlessly works around it, he will find a time when that hard condition will have been absorbed and removed. Accept the condition as some evidence of good. Look for the good."
I recently talked about the fact that there's a good in every situation. If you feel yourself pushing back trying to make something happen and it is not working, sit back, stop being resistant, go with the flow, and listen to the ideas...
Today we are talking about the Law of Compensation.
It goes without saying that we typically want to get back whatever we put in. We desire a return on investment for the work that we do in this life. Watch the video to learn more.
Raymond Holliwell writes, “When you perform your task to the very best of your ability, or when you are thorough in your work and do it well, you infallibly bring out the best there is, and you grow more capable and efficient. You become better. And the law is that he who becomes better will attract the better and be given the greater thing to do.”
He also says it's useless to pray for a new home if you can't take care of your present one.
The point here is that if we want to manifest better things into our lives, we have to do the work.
So if you're wanting a better job than the one you have right now, go out and make those phone calls, show up on time, and have a positive attitude.
If you're wanting a new home,...
Today I want to talk about the Law of Increase so we can expand and grow what comes into our lives.
A better way to phrase this is the Law of Praise. Watch the video to learn how to bring more abundance into your life.
Raymond Holliwell states, “Praise is the shortest route to complete any demonstration (manifesting) and the quickest way to enjoy effectual prayer. Praise expands and opens the mind upward while the opposite condemnation contracts and restricts.”
What he is saying we want to praise ourselves and be proud of our accomplishments. We also want to praise and acknowledge another’s efforts.
We often do this with children, but it is important to praise adults as well.
Praise can be as simple as saying THANK YOU when someone opens the door for you.
When you incorporate praise into your life, not only do they feel better for the compliment, but it raises your vibration as well. You physiological composition will improve.
Holliwell also says,...
The Law of Attraction became famous with the movie The Secret produced by Rhonda Byrne. There are actually two parts to this process: desire and manifestation.
Watch the video below to learn more about the Law of Attraction principle.
Raymond Holliwell states, “Desire is when an individual earnestly desires a thing and sets up a line of force that connects him with the invisible side of the good desired.”
This means we have to WANT it. We have to FEEL it. We have to put ENERGY behind it.
After desire, we move to expectation which brings what we would love into reality.
Again, start with the desire; the wanting, feeling and yearning to have something in our life. Then, visualize yourself with it.
Next, step into your faith and EXPECT it to come.
When you see someone with a shiny new sports car you would love, don’t jump to jealousy. Instead say, “Good job! I am about to have the same car myself!”
Consider what you can say to yourself to build your faith...
Let’s continue our study on Working with the Law.
Today we're working with the Law of Thinking. Raymond Holliwell uses this quote, “As a man thinketh in his heart, so shall he be.”
Holliwell states “The progress of the individual is largely determined by his ruling mental state because the mind is the basic factor and governing power of the entire life of man. Attention should be given to the predominant mental state. It will regulate the action and direction of all of one's forces, which will inevitably determine many particular experiences, and the personal fate.”
What this basically says is that as a man thinketh, so he shall become. So what we focus on...so will we become.
So what is your predominant mental state? Is that worry and fear? Or is it looking through to a hopeful future and what you would love to pull into your life?
Now that you've decided on what you would love to create, today is your...
Raymond Holliwell wrote a very powerful book called Working With the Law. Here is what he had to say about heaven on earth.
“Heaven is actually a condition and a state of mind that can be had NOW as well as the here-after. All failures in life are due to taking sides with the finite around us. Success in life is due to taking sides with the law within us.” By Raymond Holliwell
We create our lives. We plant seeds with our mind. Putting it out into the Universe and the “Law” is our connection to Spirit, our Higher Power, God, Universe or whatever you choose to call it.
We get to co-create what we would love to have in our lives.
So when I say, “Working with the law.” I mean we are working with the Universe or whatever Higher Power we have that makes us strong and powerful and manifests a life we would love to live.
What would you love to focus on to co-create with the Universe?
