Your subconscious mind

I am now more spiritual than religious.  I still believe that God is everywhere. By that virtue, He must be in each and every one of us and is not some distant figure that's hard to reach.

This belief has affected me in so many wonderful ways.

I am God's co-creator.  I no longer see myself as a victim of circumstances. Everything that happens to me, I willed at some level.

I see God and therefore the good in everyone. I am more patient, more understanding, more compassionate, less judgmental.

I am more confident, more trusting, more open to messages from God and from within. I listen when I pray, whereas I used to just bombard Him with all my complaints and requests.  I don't think I even thanked Him for the blessings in and around me, including the people I love.  Now, I often stop and appreciate even the littlest things.

Obviously, I love this new me.  I am definitely in a much better position financially.  But I'd be lying if I said I would attribute it all to this without any doubt.  I honestly don't know but I would like to think that the new me did have something to do about it... a big chunk of it. 

It all started when I stumbled upon this gem called The Power of Your Subconscious Mind. It was the perfect introductory text for me.  Very easy read.  I think I picked it up at a used books store, long before Rhonda Byrne came out with The Secret, which I think would also have been a good introductory text.  I've since picked up other titles on various tangentially-related subjects (intention, manifestation, metaphysics, etc.) and I list below the ones that stand out in my memory, including the ones I've already mentioned.  Click on the images to view them on Amazon.


The Power of Your Subconcious Mind
I actually read a different edition but the one above is apparently considered the gold standard by many, both figuratively and literally as you can see.  Get this one first if you haven't read it.


The Secret
Again, this would probably have been another good introductory text for me had it come out much earlier.  This is the 10th Anniversary Edition and I honestly don't know how it's different from the one I read.


The Spontaneous Fulfillment of Desire
I actually listened to the CD version of this.  It was nice to hear Mr. Chopra's voice himself.  I remember getting a lot of insights.  I wish I had taken down notes.


The Science of Mind
Mr. Holmes was the founder of Religious Science, not to be confused with Scientology (which I don't know anything about).  This book is huge.  While I own an edition, I admittedly haven't read the whole thing myself.


365 Science of Mind
If you're the type who prefers reading a little nugget of wisdom every day, try this one instead.  It has a reading for each day of the year.  You get a one-day break during leap years. ;)


365 Ways to Raise Your Frequency
Another daily read that I just picked up recently.  So far, it's been an easy read.  I think it would also be a perfect introduction to those just finding out about the power within them.  The thing I like about this one is it's not tied to the days of the year.  So you can skip a day or two or however many if you have to.


Mr. Tolle talks about being present, getting out of your thoughts and observing yourself thinking those thoughts, thereby eliminating their powers over you.  You become one with this observer, which is the real you.  It's really profound.  It's on my to-read-again list.


Your Hands Can Heal You
This book talks about healing your body using its own energy called "Prana".  I've met Master Stephen Co myself.  I attended one of his 1-day seminars.  While I remember feeling the "Prana" between my two hands, I don't believe I have ever attempted to heal myself using Pranic Healing.  I've been meaning to re-read this book and apply the techniques.


There you have it.  I have read so many other books.  I may add them later or create another post as I see fit.

Keep trusting your informed gut,
Iggy

    1. That was strange. I thought I replied to your post but it showed up as a separate thread. Let's see what happens to this one.
