Remember that your thoughts are the primary cause of everything. So when you think a sustained thought it is immediately sent out into the Universe. That thought magnetically attaches itself to the like frequency, and then within seconds sends the reading of that frequency back to you through your feelings. Put another way, your feelings are communicated back to you from the Universe, telling you what frequency you are currently on. Your feelings are your frequency feedback mechanism!”

Jack Canfield grew popular from his Chicken Soup books.  He played a role in the Rhonda Byrne’s The Secret.  In one part of the movie, Canfield recalls

I said okay, I want to make $100,000 in the next calendar year.  Now at that time I had a job as a school teacher, and I was making $8,000 a year, so that would be twelve times my income in one year.  I didn’t see how I could do that; they don’t pay teachers extra if they do a good job. But he said set the goal anyway and let’s see what happens. So the technique I was using was to visualize every day having $100,000.  I made a $100,000 bill by taking a hundred dollar bill and using a projection screen, projecting it up onto a flip chart, so it was larger, then I traced it and added three zeros to it so it looked like $100,000.  It was large, about three feet by two feet, and I put it up on the ceiling above my bed.  So every morning I’d wake up, I’d see the hundred thousand dollar bill, and I’d say my affirmation: “God is my unlimited supply.  May large sums of money come to me quickly and easily under the grace of God, for the highest good of all concerned. I am easily earning, saving, and investing a $100,000 a year.”


This story is also in Rhonda Byrne’s The Secret


In the end, Jack didn’t make the $100,000.  He fell JUST short.  But that wasn’t the idea.  The idea is to set a goal, pursue it with all your heart and keep pushing toward it.  Keep your thoughts centered on that goal, because as those of us who follow Law of Attraction know:
Watch your thoughts.  They become your reality.


–Keep your thoughts positive and you’ll find more positivity flowing in your direction.
–Set a goal and (an outrageous goal if you desire) as Jack Canfield says:
–Set a goal so outrageous that when it comes to fruition, you’ll understand that it was your faith in seeing it accomplished and nothing else.


Be Happy!  Be Well!  Be Positive!
Blessings to you.


Once you realize that life is eternal,
That our souls our eternal,
That we return to light and physical over and over;


We then lose all our distress
We then lose all our fear of dying.  For there truly is no end.
