The week 12 webinar was a little different for week 12. Prior to the webinar we were tasked to take our Definite Major Purpose statement (DMP) and condense is to 1 sentence written on an index card. We then took our card with the condensed DMP card and read out loud for 50 minutes. This was during the webinar. Fifty minutes is a long time. During my time my voice became tired and not working perfectly for a while but it came back. I had not had much sleep the night before so a few times I had a little trouble concentrating so I struggled a little. It was a little difficult at times and the rest of the time it was smooth. I was happy to stop when the fifty minutes were up. This was the longest period of time since we started where I spent that much time telling my subconscious what I wanted. I read my full DMP out loud 3 times a day and the combined time for that is way less than fifty minutes. So I thought it was a good exercise. I’m certainly not going to make it a habit but I feel it was valuable and who knows maybe once in a while I might add a shortened version maybe 20 minutes into my routine. I did discover doing this exercise though that I need to condense my DMP a little more before I add the exercise in again.
We also took out 30-50 index cards and wrote one thing on each card that we are good at. Things we are good at can be very simple things such as wash the dishes, bush my teeth 2 times a day, learned to swim or get to work on time pretty much anything that is not negative. We then split the cards into 2 different piles. We then added 5 cards to each pile with a different affirmation on each card. The purpose is to use these cards as flash cards you can just quickly flip through and read to constantly give your subconscious a constant flow of good thoughts and affirmations.
So anytime you are not really busy you can quickly go through a deck and get some positive thoughts to your subconscious. If you are waiting in line for something go through the deck and instead of getting frustrated and having a negative thought go through a deck and keep the good info flowing.
The reading was very good. It starts out stating that with an understanding of the creative power of thought any purpose in life is attainable. However The attainment of mans desire will be hindered by thoughts of fear, anxiety and discouragement. So eternal vigilance is needed to keep the negative thoughts and feelings from keeping you from your desires. To obtain your desires you must have the knowledge to know what to do. Though knowledge does not apply itself. You have to use that knowledge. You may know several ways how to throw a curveball through study but unless you go out and actually throw a baseball the knowledge is useless. So next you have the courage to dare to use that knowledge. You must throw go out and throw the baseball. Then you must have the faith that the knowledge will work. You have to have the faith that the applied knowledge will have the outcome you desire. You have to maintain that faith when the results are not immediate. Things are not always fast and easy and possibly the application of the knowledge is not correct initially. So check that your application of the knowledge is correct and keep the faith that it will work with time.
The last part I’m going to cover I am just going to quote from Part 12. “It is the combination of Thought and Love which forms the irresistible force called the law of attraction.” I had never seen the law of attraction stated this way. But I love this section of the reading. There is one other section that I am going to quote. “There is no getting away from the law of love. It is the feeling that imparts vitality to thought. Feeling is desire, and desire is love. Thought impregnated with love becomes invincible.” This I find so powerful. It gives extra meaning to making sure your DMP is correct and you have that burning desire or love of your desires. I know that I am going to put some more emotion into reading my DMP and really thinking it over to make sure that what is in there is what I truly love and desire.
Well, I did not try to make up for being late by making it longer. But the work we are doing keeps unfolding and I continue to learn more all the time and have more and more faith in the process. This is truly a life changing experience.
