The Amazing Power of Deliberate Intent

Read November 15th, 2008

Living the Art of Allowing, by Esther and Jerry Hicks, (The Teachings of Abraham), Hay House, 2006 - from the Columbus Public Library

I have read another book by Esther and Jerry Hicks and also listened to one of the books on CD. This one I recommend because it helps you put the ideas into practice. It is one thing to read and understand an idea, quite another to actually do it. The book gives many examples of how to use their ideas about changing your thoughts to positive ones.

The emotional scale was a significant part of the book and how to use it:

It is an easy read. Highly recommend.

The Energy Healing Experiments

Read the November 15th, 2008

 Science Reveals Our Natural Power to Heal, by Gary E. Schwartz, PhD with William L. Simon, Atria Books, 2007 - from Columbus Public Library

Interesting book. I didn’t read it carefully. Basically he did experiments on the human aura and power of thought and touch - the experiments proved there is something to it all.

Hidden in Plain Sight, The Secret of More

By Mark Puchanan, 2007
From the Columbus Library. I only read the parts that appealed to me. I liked some of the stories - Khrushchev...
He quotes 2 Pet. 1:1-9

2 Peter 1:1-9 (New International Version)

 1Simon Peter, a servant and apostle of Jesus Christ,
      To those who through the righteousness of our God and Savior Jesus Christ have received a faith as precious as ours: 2Grace and peace be yours in abundance through the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord.
Making One's Calling and Election Sure
 3His divine power has given us everything we need for life and godliness through our knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness. 4Through these he has given us his very great and precious promises, so that through them you may participate in the divine nature and escape the corruption in the world caused by evil desires. 5

For this very reason, make every effort to add to your faith goodness; and to goodness, knowledge; 6and to knowledge, self-control; and to self-control, perseverance; and to perseverance, godliness; 7and to godliness, brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness, love. 8For if you possess these qualities in increasing measure, they will keep you from being ineffective and unproductive in your knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. 9But if anyone does not have them, he is nearsighted and blind, and has forgotten that he has been cleansed from his past sins.

What I found interesting is his interpretation of it sounds just like the Abraham-Hicks/Secret books:

"Everything you need for life and godliness you have already. In full. You actually don't need any more. Not one thing - not a cotter pin or flat washer, not a doohicky or a thingamajig: nothing's been withheld. Everything required for zoë - abundant and flourishing life - eusebeia - a deep and real commitment to what matters most - is intact.

The life you've always wanted is alredy here. Right now. Not next year. Not after you get through this particularly difficult season. Not after your kids reach a certain age. Not after your husband gets his act together, or you've gone to counseling, or acquired a college degree, or read the lates t and greatest self-help book.

Here and now you have everthing you need.

Only, there's some assembly required. Peter says, "For this very reason" - because you have all you need, down to the last snip of thread and patch of duct tape - "for this very reason, make verery effort to add..."

What follows are seven virtues, each and all laid on the foundation of faith. Seven virtues that we're to make every effort  to acquire. And if we do? We swill participate in God's very own nature. We will escape the corruption of the world. We will lead a fruitful and productive life.

We will have more.

It's that simple. - pages 14-15

The Key, The Missing Secret for Attracting Anything You Want

by Joe Vitale, July 26, 2009

The Optimist Creed - was first published in 1912 in Christian D. Larson's book, Your Forces and How to Use Them

Promise Yourself:
To be so strong that nothing can disturb your peace of mind.
To talk health, happiness, and prosperity to every person you meet.
To make all your friends feel that there is something in them.
To look at the sunny side of everything and make your optimism come true.
To think only of the best, to work only for the best, and to expect only the best.
To be just as enthusiastic about the success of others as you are about your own.
To forget the mistakes of the past and press on the the greater achievements of the future.
To wear a cheerful countenance at all times and give every living creature you meet a smile.
To give so much time to the improvement of yourself that you have no time to criticize others.
To be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too strong for fear, and too happy to permit their presence of trouble.
To think well of yourself and to proclaim this fact tot her world, not in loud words but in great deeds.
To live in the faith that the whole world is on your side as long as you are true to the best that is in you.

Clearing method #2
1. What are you unhappy about? ( Or angry, guilty, worried...)
2. Why are you unhappy about that?
3. What are you concerned would happen if you were not unhappy about that?
4. Do you believe that?
5. Why do you believe that?
6. What are you concerned would happen if you did not believe that?

"In general, emotion is what's attracting everything into your life.

The Isaiah Effect, Decoding the Lost Science of Prayer and Prophecy by Gregg Braden

"from the Dead Sea Scrolls: "Kill not the food which goes into your mouth. For if you eat living food, the same will quicken you, but if you kill your food, the dead food will kill you also. For life comes only from life, and death comes always from death. For everything which kills your foods, kills your bodies also." [Essenes]

"It is only in our love or fear for the objects of our thoughts that we breathe life into the creations of our imagination."

"Feeling is the key to prayer."

"Prayer," I began, "is, to us, as water is to the seed of a plant."

"First shall the Son of Man seek peace within his own body; for his body is as a mountain pond that reflects the sun when it is still and clear. When it is full of mud and stones it reflects nothing.

"Then shall the Son of Man seek peace within his own thoughts... There is no greater power in heaven and earth than the thought of the Son of Man. Though unseen by the eyes of the body, yet each thought has mighty strength, even such strength can shake the heavens.

"Then shall the Son of Man seek peace with his own feelings. We call on the Angel of love to enter our feelings, that they may be purified. And all that was before impatience and discord will turn into harmony and peace."

T he Essene word for "angel" could be translated a number of ways, including "powers or forces that be."
Hopi: "when prayer and meditation are used rather than relying on new inventions to create more imbalance, then they [humanity] will also find the true path."

Misquoting Jesus by Bart D. Ehrman, recorded book from the Columbus Library 225.486 E33m

This was EXCELLENT to listen to in the car. So many of the quotes that I love in the New Testament were added by scribes and not original. Beliefs I was taught as a kid were based on mistakes, errors, changes, and certainly not the word of "God".

Reading the Enemy’s Mind - Inside Star Gate, America’s Psychic Espionage Program

November 26th, 2008

 by Paul H. Smith, A Tom Doherty Associates Book, 2005 - from the Columbus Public Library

I skimmed through it. Rather thick book with smallish print. Main thing I got from it was Paul Smith was not psychic. Just an ordinary Army guy who was invited into the Remote Viewing program. Army’s view was that we are all psychic and can do it. Proved to be the case for Paul. The Remote Viewing program was dropped, not because it didn’t work, because it did - but because it was made fun of so the funding was cut. The US got into it because the Russians were doing it and spending alot of money on their program.

This is the second of a series of books. Fabulous!! I may end up buying the set of books. I got this from the library. It tells of the pyramids and what the real purpose of them was. How we can find out how to save ourselves from being annihilated in another global disaster. How to get back to being the spiritual beings that we were meant to be.

Step One: Know what you don't want
Step Two: Select what you would like to have, do, or be
Step Three: Get clear
Step Four: Feel how exciting it would be to have, do, or be what you want
Step Five: Let Go

page 110 - "You can ask for whatever you want to do, be, or have, but also be willing for the universe to give you something better. End all of your requests with the phrase, 'This or something better' and you will be letting the universe know that 'Thy will be done' is of highest importance."

----Great book! Very inspirational. Highly recommended. - bfg

Tomorrow's God by Neale Donald Walsch

Have read just about all of his books. This one was worthwhile, too.

Watermark, The Disaster that Changed the World and Humanity 12,000 years ago

by Joseph Christy-Vitale
July 26, 2009

Why anyone believes that the "Ice Age" moved all the rocks and caused the "glacial grooves" is beyond me. There is far too much evidence that the "great flood" of the Bible was a real event. The evidence is from all cultures and the physical evidence is pretty clear, too. This is a good book. Got it from the Columbus Public Library.
