Key To Success

What do you do when you come across a key to success in a book you're reading? You ponder over it. Since I read many books and come across many keys, I thought it would be fun to share the ideas that arise as I contemplate a key to success. Reading is not just about absorbing information, it's also about contemplating, allowing the ideas to blossom within, and nurturing a seed tossed in the rich soil of the inner garden.

I got my Master's degree in psychotherapy more than a decade ago. Since then I've studied the human condition with fascination. Over the years, I've learned a singular lesson: your life does not work when you oppose your soul nature. If you want a magical life, you have to drop your inauthentic transactions with the world. You discover your own power when you spend time alone to figure out what you really love to do.

Unleash The Power Of Prayer

But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory~Phil.4:19

Today a dear friend of mine could not pay the rent. She was in grief. Yet ironically this same person had acquired a new job and a new lover in only a few weeks when she needed that to happen in her life.

I told her to pray and to contact the invisible power that had brought her the previous things that she needed.

She doubted that it would work again. Like most people she found it impossible to believe in the impossible. She attributed her previous results to luck, effort and charm.

Perhaps you, like her, share the same view that some things just aren’t possible.

I’d like to talk about case histories of impossible situations that got turned around because the person chose to unleash the power of prayer rather than succumb to what appeared possible.

• A woman who was out of work with bills piling up was desperate. She had three children and no money. She tapped into the inner power by affirming the following over and over again. “God supplies all my needs now.” Her sister whom she had not seen in 15 years dropped in unexpectedly and gave her $5,000.

• An elderly woman on a small pension could barely make ends meet. She prayed in the following way: “God’s wealth is circulating in my life. His wealth flows to me in avalanches of abundance, and I give thanks for my good now and for all of God’s riches.” Two weeks later a man knocked on her door and offered to buy a worthless piece of land she owned in the desert because his company wanted to run electric cables through the area. He cut her a check for $10,000.

• An inventor had little money to promote his new idea. He learned from a spiritual counselor that all he had to do was to pray to make this idea come to life. Shortly afterward, he met a prominent businessman at a self-help lecture. The businessman not only paid to sponsor the invention but also contracted with interested parties who could manufacture and market it.

• A writer could not get his works published despite pouring his heart and soul into his novels. Then he adopted this affirmation, “God’s wisdom writes this novel through me. My intellect is illuminated, and I write a novel which inspires, blesses, and is a boon to mankind.” He found himself waking up in the middle of the night with remarkable ideas for his stories. He got published and found the process of creating and publishing effortless from that time on by simply praying for good ideas.

• Finally, a real estate agent found it difficult to make money at his business. He then prayed for three month in the following way: “The limitless riches of God are flowing to me as fast as I can receive and use them, and every man gets richer day by day.” Within those three months, his income trebled.

How and why prayer works, I don’t have a clue. All I can say is that the evidence of things not seen must prevail in your consciousness if you are to overcome your particular challenge. Prayer makes the impossible, possible.
