Once again I am fighting with my subconscious habits which make me feel good when I am watching movies on TV with my wife instead of doing my personal growth work. That is the main reason I am delivering this blog late.
Week nine presented a challenge and it was the Thanksgiving Holiday. We had a great time, we got together with family and friends, and we enjoyed good food and music. We gave thanks to our creator for the blessings represented in enjoying what I just shared with you. That is the real meaning of this week, which should be extended to the whole year since gratitude is cause. By being grateful, we put ourselves in harmony with our creator and our environment, and that is the first priority to ask and receive more blessings and to put in motion our thoughts in order to realize our desires.
Charles Haanel tells us in chapter nine that for humans to experience habits there are three things that we should satisfy, health, wealth, and love, and that there is nothing else necessary. I remember a song that is based on those requirements for happiness, I even want to sing it to you because it has a beautiful melody, although I remember it in Spanish. Salud, Dinero y Amor, y el que tenga esas tres cosas, que le de gracias a Dios. El que tenga un Amor, que lo cuide, que lo cuide…
And how can we make sure we get those three things? By the correct thinking and affirmations. In this chapter, Haanel shares a story of Frederick Andrews who as a boy was crippled and moved about on his hands and feet. He, with a Positive Mental Attitude and consistent repeating of an affirmation, and visualization, turned himself into a straight healthy strong person. And which was that affirmation that created the miracle to him? “I am whole, perfect, strong, powerful, loving, harmonious, and happy.”
Visualization is the use of our mental work, creating images of what we want, and thoughts, providing vitality to our desires. It is a vital step in the manifestation of our wishes and desires.
We also review that the Truth destroys false and allows us to plan and conceive the proper ideas to get to a solution. Working out of false premises it is impossible to know where will we end up. No solution will work. Utilizing spiritual truths to get in touch with our lesser things in life, we are sure we will be solving any of our problems.
