How to influence your mind to attract your desires and a glorious afterlife

As the years have been passing by, I’ve been acquiring most of the things I ever desired. By taking a look at the past, it’s obvious that my positive-thinking background (from childhood to adulthood) had been influencing my mind to attract the things I desired; today, it still influences my mind to attract the ones I desire. From personal experience, I can boldly say that the human mind operates in a way that follows a sensible pattern which is void of any form of mystery. There is nothing mystical about the powerful influence our minds have on other people and the environment around us. Read ahead in order to see things from my own angle: how capable each human mind is in making an influence that will attract or dispel the thing(s) it desires. Although I admit that our experiences are different, value will be found in this content; it will enable you to tweak your mind in order to achieve better results in terms of attracting what you want.

Have a good intention to acquire what you desire

The quest for material things should go hand in hand with a desire to weigh the spiritual value inherent in acquiring them. In this regard, I advise people to acquire material things based on spiritual values which are capable of outlasting all the material thing(s) they wish to acquire. It’s not a bad idea to become excessively rich, but it would be a delusion to become rich and lose spiritual or immaterial values like love, peace, soundness of mind, humility, etc. It has to be noted that our stay on Earth is temporary; therefore, strive for spiritual values by showing kindness, consideration and understanding for others – instead of becoming a thief or murderer; a slanderer or a blackmailer; a liar or a rapist; etc. When you look for spiritual values while pursuing material things, the universe and nature will always support you, even when surrounding conditions are unfavorable. From experience and observation, there are certain important steps we should follow:

1. Decide what you want

You must decide exactly what you want; you must visualize or conceive it in your mind. What is it that you actually want? It might not be enough for you to say you want a lot of money, a lot of cars, a lot of houses, etc. You will get far better results if you describe “in detail” what you want. For example, if you want a new car, then you must state other things about the car: the model of the car, the engine-type (automatic or manual), the color of the car, etc. The point is this: you must state extra things that will give your mind a firm image and “strong” impression that can influence it to attract what you desire during the time you are waiting for/expecting your desire to materialize. After creating a clear thought about what you want, frequently picture it in your mind, and always hold that picture firmly.

2. Give unto others so that you will easily be assisted to receive

After deciding what you want, go to the next stage: GIVE so that you can receive. If you make up your mind to give, then how much are you willing to give? If you desire to acquire a particular amount of money, are you prepared to help other people with a tithe, which is the same thing as a tenth of that money? Do you have a heart to assist other people who are not as lucky/fortunate as you are? It might sound vain to say that you will give a tithe after you get money. Make it a habit to give out money, services, or any form of assistance to those who are in need. In so doing, you will be placing yourself in a favorable position, and influencing your mind to cooperate with the natural laws of giving/receiving, in order to attract your desire(s).

3. Make it a habit to always practice visualizing what you want

After deciding what you want: to get a promotion, to get a million dollars, to become an orator, to win a lottery, or whatever it is, visualize what you want. Let’s say you’ve decided you want a new car, then decide the type of car you want: the brand of the car, the color of the car, the passenger-carrying capacity of the car, etc. Next, use a few minutes each day to relax both mind and body; immediately thereafter, use some extra minutes (ten or twenty) to visualize yourself in the car as if you have it — there and then. Do not think of the car as something you might have, or could have, even though you know you don’t have it at the moment. Visualize yourself having the car. As you visualize and always create a mental picture of it, it will become a blueprint that will be influential in attracting your desire(s). Create a thought that you can continuously pour energy into in order to strengthen it until it becomes reality. If leadership skills, power, courage and influence are what you desire, add them to the picture. After frequently visualizing your desires in your mind, you will observe that you won’t have any doubt(s) that you are going to acquire them.

It must be noted that visualization can be difficult if it’s something that’s new to you! Difficulties can arise because your mind hasn’t gotten used to producing sharp pictures of the things you desire; do not bother about this. The pictures you conceive do not have to be perfect in terms of having all the traits (qualities) of the things you desire. If you discipline your mind and make it a habit to regularly visualize what you want, your mind will eventually start to believe in the visualizations and produce amazing mental pictures for you to easily choose from. Results will be obvious if you always live the thoughts of your desires in your mind, again and again, and for a long period — say weeks, months, or even years. Whenever doubts arise, do not be discouraged; just continue to repeat your visualizations and positive elements will naturally color the whole process till you physically acquire your desire(s). Keep on repeating your visualizations and everything will quite naturally look after itself. Don’t bother yourself too much about what will happen, just have faith in the process of visualization and the right things will happen at the right time. As you visualize, FEEL that the money, car, or whatever you desire, is coming to you; the more positive you are about it, the faster the reaction will be. If you follow these steps, the thoughts of your desires will be driven into the subconscious part of your whole mind, which is ninety percent of it, and nine times more powerful than your conscious mind which you use every day. Thereafter, and in no time, your subconscious mind (which is the platform for signs and wonders), will miraculously materialize your desires.

Words of Advice

There are things that are much more valuable than money, cars, skyscrapers, and all types of wonderful material things. If you are wise, instead of using all your effort to strive and acquire an excessive number of material things, go the other way: rather strive to acquire spiritual values like Jesus, Buddha, Martin Luther, and other great people or leaders whose auras positively influenced the eternal destinies of millions and millions of people. Desire to acquire abilities and virtues that will outlast your short earthly life, and be of profitable use to you when you leave this world.

Hammer this thought into your mind: no one has ever succeeded in taking a single dollar into the next world; the more material things you strive to acquire, the more material things you will leave behind. On the other hand, the more you help other people by doing good, the more blessings and spirituality you will carry along with you into the next life — after you leave this world. It is quite unfortunate that in the present age, most people think that the acquisition of excessive amounts of money and other forms of material things, is all that matters. It is not possible to help others too much, and when you help others — you indirectly attract physical and spiritual blessings to yourself. A lot of people in the world are in desperate need of help; choose to visualize and acquire material things in order to serve your fellow human beings. After this short earthly life, there is an everlasting spiritual life in which goodness and spirituality are the currencies in use, while money and material things are like the dust of this Earth. The choice is yours to make!

Drawing Up From the Well of Wisdom Located “Deep” Within Your Heart

The scripture in Proverbs 20: 5 of the Christian Bible, says: “Counsel in the heart of man is like deep water, but a man of understanding will draw it out”. A deep look at that scripture will give you the impression that an immeasurable amount of treasures lies within each human beings heart; and these treasures can help each individual live an outstanding and distinguished lifestyle! There is counsel, information and direction within the deepest part of man. It takes a lot of time and thinking to pull them out. Also, it takes wisdom to apply them towards becoming a mystery to your generation. When Joseph (of ancient Israel) gave Pharaoh insight into the impending economic crisis of their era, Pharaoh used that insight as a unique breakthrough in preventing the occurrence of any serious calamity. Joseph advised the king on how food could be preserved for seven years; without decadence, and without the application of any sophisticated technology.

In so many instances, seeking help by running from place to place, is not the real solution to some major issues in life. There is advice, information, direction and solution – within you. Your responsibility is to settle down and discover them. Many people don’t create time to settle down, meditate, think and plan; and so they end up frustrated. At every junction of life, meditate deeply within your spirit, in order to obtain directions. When you are committed to being thoughtful, through meditation, then you’ll be given proper direction. Most of the modern wonders of science were invented because men created time to think and tap into the abundance of wealth and treasures located within their minds. For example, electricity was around all the while: but no one saw it or did anything about it, until Benjamin Franklin thought about it, and brought it into physical existence.

Archimedes brought forth the laws of flotation after thinking deeply over the matter for a long period of time. He got the solution in the bathroom and shouted “eureka”, which means “I have found it”. Bill Gates, who is extremely wealthy and one of the fathers of modern information technology, is a confirmed thinker. A story was once told about him, that while he was in deep thought one day, his mother called out – “Bill, Bill”, but he was lost in his thoughts. When he was eventually asked what he was doing, he replied: “I was thinking, don’t you think?” Limitless amounts of useful information can emanate from your mind, if you make out time to delve into it a little bit, or even much more deeper – than usual. The fact that you don’t take time to think over the issues of life, doesn’t mean that you have an opportunity to be careless! Settle down and calmly meditate, in order to release the treasures of ideas located on the inside part of you.

In the Pursuit of Dreams Along With Spiritual Development …

If we take a look at life from God’s position and perspective, we might be pushed to ask ourselves this big question: why are we here on Earth? What was God’s reason for placing us on Earth? Did we get here accidentally? Or, were we intentionally designed with a specific purpose which is different from what we think? Many people and many religions agree that our reason for being here has a unique purpose. One of the major purposes for being here (on Earth), is to locate your own destiny by consistently striving to find out what you were born to do; and then go all out to fulfill it. By achieving fulfillment and greatness, we’ll certainly be able to contribute our own quota to the welfare and destiny of mankind; and the world at large. Another major purpose for being here is to continuously develop spiritually as we travel on our everlasting journey of spirituality.

Unfortunately, the minds of most people tend to lead them astray, and into a direction which doesn’t come from the bowels of their hearts: this distracts them from finding the true purpose of their lives. Most people often think that money, power, success, fame and popularity will create an eternally happy lifestyle for them, and so they vigorously pursue these desires. Other types of people chase these dreams while simultaneously seeking spiritual development: this is the best option because you’ll be using one stone (life on earth) to kill two birds (your dreams, and spiritual development). The pursuit of spiritual development along with enlightenment about our destiny, would give us a peaceful state of mind, and make us feel more relaxed and calm. Our purpose in life is related to a considerable extent — with seeking spiritual enlightenment about God, his ethics and his kingdom. If our spirits are not sufficiently inspired and motivated, we’ll find it difficult to awaken the perception about our life’s purpose. A major key towards realizing spiritual development and enlightenment, is to follow your intuition – your spiritual thinking – your heart. We have to find out our purpose in life, and live it to the fullest – from deep within our souls. Living our life in this manner will imbibe stillness within our minds; and then, we’ll naturally be able to let go of negative emotions, hopelessness, fear, guilt, malice and false beliefs which normally preoccupy the human mind.

If we become successful in making the pursuit of spirituality a habit, our minds will automatically tune into a greater reality which can help us achieve a stabilized level of spiritual enlightenment and continuous spiritual development. In summary, locate your life’s purpose. If you can succeed in doing so, then you won’t have much to worry about; and you will be contented with everything you have, no matter what position you are in life. Everyone has to learn how to let go of bad memories often associated with the past: don’t harbor them within your minds. In dropping the odds and negatives, our minds will gradually become more still as time passes by. Also, we have to develop a personality that can’t be negatively influenced by the outward (material) changes so often associated with life. In so doing, our minds will become less affected by any change in external situations. Another important thing to do is to rid ourselves of fear(s) associated with a lack of faith. This fear often keeps many people away from moving towards the direction of their destinies. Such negative traits prevent us from believing in God, the spiritual world, and eternity.
