The law of growth, the law of relaxation of thought, spiritual thoughts and its application.
This weeks Master Key reading reminded me of this true story.
A few years ago I ran out of money. Literally. I had no food, but for a few slices of bread, and nothing else. No cash, nothing in my bank. Zip, nada, nothing! I had run out of coffee and milk. My monthly expenses exceeded my income. Far too much month at the end of the money.
I was standing in my kitchen blaming and crying in frustration at the Universe. I even used self-abasing profanity at this entity of creation. I could not call out as my cell phone provider had suspended me for non payment. I could however receive calls.
I spent a little while in this emotional state of horribleness. I would not ask for help, so I was completely alone and isolated. Well not really, but that was my state of mind.
And somehow my intuitive ability came into play. I heard ‘gratitude.’
How does one start being grateful when the world seems to be so crushing and debilitating?
I knew I had to shatter my emotional state somehow. Challenging when all thoughts are dark and somewhat dangerous.
I heard ‘gratitude’ again. And then into my mind came a reminder that focusing on lack only brings more lack. The law of growth. What we think about, we grow. Lack brings more lack. And of course vice versa.
Where did that thought come from? It came from outside of me. From the entity of beautiful creation that I was heavily cursing. And we see that in this weeks Master Key teaching – “thought is a spiritual activity and is therefore endowed with creative power.”
With a tear stained face, I started looking for what I could be grateful for. My car, petrol in my car, my clothes, the roof over my head, my furniture, my plethora of books, ad infinitum. I was in essence applying the law of substitution.
After about 5 minutes, I stated to feel lighter, because my focus was on the good in my life.
After about 15 minutes, my mother called me. Unless she needs something, she seldom calls me. I try call her on the days I don’t see her.
Cutting a long story short, she helped me to get food and pay off my cell phone provider.
How did she know to call me? Because I applied the law of substitution, the law of gratitude, the law of growth and that connected me to The Universe, and the Universe conspires with me to bring help. A miracle much! So from abject misery, I shifted to being exceptionally grateful at the energy which co-creates with us.
If I was not a meditator applying the law of a relaxed mental state, I would not have developed intuitive ability. We know a relaxed mind is the connection to Infinite Intelligence.
The more I expressed gratitude, the more the law of growth applied itself. And I received miraculous help.
“Most persons concentrate intently upon unsatisfactory conditions, thereby giving the condition that measure of energy and vitality which is necessary in order to supply a vigorous growth.”
Charles Haanel – The Master Key System.
Writing the gratitude flash cards was and is a beautiful experience. I’m focused only on good growth. Gratitude shifts negativity. I’m proof of that.
It’s part of success mentality.
Earl Nightingale reminds us – when planting seeds, the land doesn’t care what seed is planted. It will grow that seed. The land is our subconscious mind. The moral lesson is be the observer of what seeds are planted in the mind. Lack seeds produce lack. Success seeds produce success.
Our realities are created by what we think. And it grows…
And then… what else is possible?…
In gratitude, respect and love
