Deciding to change a habit, attitude or personal situation does not automatically bring about the change desired. The decision to make the change is only the first step. Further action is required in order to effect a change in your subconscious self-image. You have learned that your goal is the mental picture of what you want. When you write down the goal, it becomes an affirmation.
The process of doing this is called “Imprinting”. Imprinting is the deliberate control of thoughts and pictures of the kind of changes we want to make. The imprinting occurs when our subconscious mind accepts the new visual image of the end result. Imprinting is a three-step process: Read more
You are lost if you do not believe that having money is a good thing.
You need the self-confidence and focus to follow your dream and this will be fatally undercut if you have the wrong philosophy of life and money.No amount of effort on your part will overcome a faulty philosophy. If, deep down, you believe that wealth is a sin or that money is dirty, or wicked then the first step is for you to correct this error or give up all hopes of wealth for you and your family.What is a ‘wrong’ philosophy with regard to making money?
Anything which could be described as altruistic, socialist, collectivist, communist or any one of its thousand manifestations no matter what the label, no matter what the disguise, no matter what the smoke screen. Read more
I grew up in an environment of lack. At the tender age of 5, I remembered watching my mother looking all over the house and under the sofa set in our small living room for a five cent coin to pay the vegetable vendor – vegetables that she had wanted to buy to cook our dinner. She didn’t find the five cent but the kind vegetable vendor gave her the vegetables anyway.
To save money, I always packed my food to school. This way, I don’t need to buy from the school canteen. Most time it was just two slices of bread and a bottle of water. Read more
I normally do not watch TV, but the other day I turned it on and there was a guy on one of those local talk shows. His name is Bill and he was telling his story about how he was wrongly diagnosed as being HIV positive, and lived that way for over six years!
He went into great detail about the anguish, fear and pain he had been subjected to. For over six years he has lived in fear of dying from AIDS. Now the skeptic in me wants to know why he is on TV telling his story. Is he doing it to help others, or is there another reason – such as the more publicity he gets, the larger the settlement offer he is likely to receive from the doctor’s malpractice insurance company? I’ll let you decide. Read more
Over the years I have had the privilege to spend time with some very financially and spiritually enlightened people. As a result, my personal life and the way I do business has changed.
In listening to these people talk and observed how they handle their personal and business lives, three very distinct and powerful traits came to my attention. I believe if all these three traits were applied to your life, they would make such a dramatic change, that in a short time all the things you desire would show up in your life. Read more

Recently I had the good fortune to attend a self discovery workshop conducted by a monk, Bhante Kumara of the Sasanarakkha Buddhist Sanctuary in Taiping. The most impressive part of the workshop was the last portion of the workshop, which was based on the Work of Byron Katie.
Katie’s work is focused on eliminating sufferings by understanding and seeing the true cause of our sufferings. The work is revealing as it shows us the error of our thinking, beliefs and perceptions, which is the root cause of our sufferings.
Katie has come up with a structured tool that makes it very easy for us to recognize these errors within us using this Judge Your Neighbor worksheet [right-click to download]. You can also download this worksheet from http://thework.com
To see the Work in Action, go to http://thework.com where there are short video clips of Byron Katie in action.

“How do I stop my negative thoughts?” – is a question that I have been asked many times. If you have ever asked this question then you will feel such enormous relief in knowing the answer, because it is so simple. How do you stop negative thoughts?
You plant good thoughts!
When you try to stop negative thoughts, you are focusing on what you don’t want – negative thoughts – and you will attract an abundance of them. They can never disappear if you are focused on them. The “stop” part is irrelevant – the negative thoughts are your focus. It doesn’t matter if you are trying to stop negative thoughts or control them or push them away, the result is the same. Your focus is on negative thoughts, and by the law of attraction you are inviting more of them to you.
The truth is always simple and it is always easy. To stop negative thoughts, just plant good thoughts! Deliberately plant good thoughts! You plant good thoughts by making it a daily practice to appreciate all the things in your day. Appreciate your health, your car, your home, your family, your job, your friends, your surroundings, your meals, your pets, and the magnificent beauty of the day. Compliment, praise, and give thanks to all things. Every time you say “Thank you” it is a good thought! As you plant more and more good thoughts, the negative thoughts will be wiped out. Why?
Because your focus is on good thoughts, and what you focus on you attract.
So don’t give any attention to negative thoughts. Don’t worry about them. If any come, make light of them, shrug them off, and let them be your reminder to deliberately think more good thoughts now.
The more good thoughts you can plant in a day, the faster your life will be utterly transformed into all good. If you spend only one day speaking of good things and saying “Thank you” at every single opportunity, you will not believe your tomorrow.
Deliberately thinking good thoughts is exactly like planting seeds. As you think good thoughts you are planting good seeds inside you, and the Universe will transform those seeds into a garden of paradise. How will the garden of paradise appear? As your life!

Creating reality in the moment is holographic creation. You can also call it manifesting in holographic time. You create what you want on a spiritual level (quantum level), and then it grows until it becomes crystallized into physical reality.
All these ten comparisons between holographic creation and visualization are based in the fact that there is no such thing as time. As Robert Anthony said in the quote at the start of this chapter, “The only moment is now”.
Note: Some people who are skilled at visualization are actually doing holographic creation without knowing it. Visualization (seeing detailed images) is part of holographic creation. This chapter fully explains the differences between the two.
So when I speak of visualization, I’m talking about the limited version of visualization as traditionally taught. Visualization is very powerful for some people precisely because they understand the deeper laws of holographic creation! Now you have these keys to manifestation also!
1. Present vs. Future
Holographic creation is a present activity. You build your creations in the present, not in the future. Your focus is truly in the eternal now. Visualization is future-based.
Visualization is focused on a desired future, not on creating something in the present.
2. Actual Creation vs. Pictures
Holographic creation is really creating something. Holographic Creations are real entities. They are made of matter (just a more refined matter – not visible to us now).
Visualization works with pictures. Visualizations are images, and are not usually considered as having a real “existence”.
3. Permanent vs. Short Lived
A properly constructed holographic creation has the power of permanence. They have continued existence after they are created. They grow independently while you go on to do other things.
A visualization is short-lived. If all you are doing is visualizing, your visualizations stop living and existing when you stop visualizing. The picture disappears.
4. Multi-Dimensional vs. Two Dimensional
Holographic creation is at least four-dimensional. It is actually a multi-dimensional process (more than four) but four is about all we can understand while in this current time and space game.
Visualizations are two-dimensional. Visual images are merely representations in our mind.
5. Inner World vs. Outer World
Holographic creation is focused on creation in the inner world of thought, light, energy, and sound. In reality, it is all energy. Youknow that the outer manifestation of your thought creations are simply a natural result of the inner manifestation.
Visualization is focused on outer reality. The focus in visualization is on the physical world, with little or no emphasis on spiritual pre-creation.
6. Emotional Power vs. Detailed Images Only
Holographic creation uses emotion. You can only do holographic creation if you properly use your emotions. You actually feel the emotions you want to feel. The holographic creation sheet helps because you have to actually write down the name of the emotion. You have to decide what emotion you want to feel – confident, joyful, connected, and energetic, and feel the emotion in the present moment!
Visualization does not include emotion. Note – many promoters of visualization have discovered the power of emotions and added this to their visualizing program, which is a great plus. Millions of people have found visualization powerful, and it can be. But millions of others have found no benefit. By itself, visualization does not include all the steps. Some find the keys to effectiveness on their own, and some do not. Holographic creation contains all the elements, and that is why it is so effective at creating what you want in life!
7. Gratitude vs. Grasping
Holographic creation uses gratitude to align your energies. Proper gratitude is an inherent part of holographic creation. Gratitude aligns your energies with the inner world and allows you to manifest in an easy manner. When you decide to create something good in your life, you must be grateful for what you already have in that area of your life. Trying to manifest from a state of total dissatisfaction with your life (ingratitude) is not effective. It also does not reflect the reality of the many blessings you do have.
In visualization there is no emphasis on gratitude. Most often in visualization there is simply wanting, craving, and grasping with no thankfulness for present blessings. You can find things to be grateful for in any area of your life. The holographic creation sheet makes you find these areas because you have to write it down!
8. Hope vs. Doubt
Holographic creation generates amazing hope and confidence. When your energies are aligned, and you absolutely know you are creating in the inner reality, you feel so good! You can feel your creations growing and crystallizing into the denser physical reality.
Hope is a full expectation of desirable things to come. With holographic creation, you have this full expectation. Visualization works somewhere between doubt and hope. Most people who practice visualization hardly have that full expectation that the things they are visualizing will really become reality.
9. Welcoming vs. Needing
Holographic creation leads to a relaxed welcoming of desires. There is a divine unconcern that is an integral part of manifesting.
HoloCreation naturally produces this mental state. You have confidence because you know the reality of inner creation. This relaxed state leads to peace, oneness, patience, and effective action.Visualization usually stems from a needing, grasping desire. Because there is no work in inner reality, there is often a fear that what one desires will not come to pass. This fearful needing leads to discontent, impatience, hurry, and frantic action.
10. Always Works vs. Sometimes Works
Holographic creation always works. The laws of manifesting physical creation through prior holographic (spiritual) creation always work. You just have to learn the laws and practice the methods.
Visualization sometimes has great results. When visualization works, it’s because the individual is naturally and intuitively including many of the elements of holographic creation. Their results will improve by understanding the principles in a conscious way.

A Happier You is an article by Eckhart Tolle
The greatest goal you can set this year is to make peace with your life, no matter your circumstances. These 10 powerful insights from Eckhart Tolle will get you started.
1. Don’t seek happiness. If you seek it, you won’t find it, because seeking is the antithesis of happiness. Happiness is ever elusive, but freedom from unhappiness is attainable now, by facing what is rather than making up stories about it.
2. The primary cause of unhappiness is never the situation but your thoughts about it. Be aware of the thoughts you are thinking. Separate them from the situation, which is always neutral, which always is as it is. There is the situation or the fact, and here are my thoughts about it. Instead of making up stories, stay with the facts. For example, “I am ruined” is a story. It limits you and prevents you from taking effective action. “I have 50 cents left in my bank account” is a fact. Facing facts is always empowering.
3. See if you can catch the voice in your head, perhaps in the very moment it complains about something, and recognize it for what it is: the voice of the ego, no more than a thought. Whenever you notice that voice, you will also realize that you are not the voice, but the one who is aware of it. In fact, you are the awareness that is aware of the voice. In the background, there is the awareness. In the foreground, there is the voice, the thinker. In this way you are becoming free of the ego, free of the unobserved mind.
4. Wherever you look, there is plenty of circumstantial evidence for the reality of time—a rotting apple, your face in the bathroom mirror compared with your face in a photo taken 30 years ago—yet you never find any direct evidence, you never experience time itself. You only ever experience the present moment.
5. Why do anxiety, stress, or negativity arise? Because you turned away from the present moment. And why did you do that? You thought something else was more important. One small error, one misperception, creates a world of suffering.
6. People believe themselves to be dependent on what happens for their happiness. They don’t realize that what happens is the most unstable thing in the universe. It changes constantly. They look upon the present moment as either marred by something that has happened and shouldn’t have or as deficient because of something that has not happened but should have. And so they miss the deeper perfection that is inherent in life itself, a perfection that lies beyond what is happening or not happening. Accept the present moment and find the perfection that is untouched by time.
7. The more shared past there is in a relationship, the more present you need to be; otherwise, you will be forced to relive the past again and again.
8. Equating the physical body with “I,” the body that is destined to grow old, wither, and die, always leads to suffering. To refrain from identifying with the body doesn’t mean that you no longer care for it. If it is strong, beautiful, or vigorous, you can appreciate those attributes—while they last. You can also improve the body’s condition through nutrition and exercise. If you don’t equate the body with who you are, when beauty fades, vigor diminishes, or the body becomes incapacitated, this will not affect your sense of worth or identity in any way. In fact, as the body begins to weaken, the light of consciousness can shine more easily.
9. You do not become good by trying to be good, but by finding the goodness that is already within you and allowing that goodness to emerge.
10. If peace is really what you want, then you will choose peace.
