“Beware of Your Dreams Lest You Achieve Them,” my father always said.
It wasn’t until many years later that I truly understood the meaning and importance of his words. In place of ‘dreams’ put ‘ thoughts’ and you have The Law of Attraction!
If you hold something in your mind, visualise it and feel it in your being for long enough, it will manifest itself into your life. If you believe it you will see it!
So, now you know this don’t dwell on anything that you don’t want! Things are not brought into being by thinking about their opposites. If you want to be healthy don’t concentrate on sickness; if you want to be rich don’t think about poverty. Don’t put anything into your mind that you don’t want to perpetuate or experience.
My father always dreamt of owning a large sheep and cattle farm. For a boy brought up just north of London, this was indeed a grand vision. He took a ‘ten pound passage’ on a boat to Australia in his early twenties; later moving to New Zealand and working as a farm labourer until he built up a down payment for a small farm. These days he farms 7000 acres of land in the South Island of NZ. Dream achieved!
For more on this subject I would recommend reading “The Science of Getting Rich” by Wallace D. Wattles. “The Secret” is also excellent, concentrating on The Law of Attraction.
