Neville Goddard - Mental Diets Transcript
Talking to oneself is a habit everyone indulges in. We could no more stop talking to ourselves than we could stop eating and drinking. All that we can do is control the nature and the direction of our inner conversations. Most of us are totally unaware of the fact that our inner conversations are the causes of the circumstance of our life.
We are told that “as a man thinketh in his heart, so is he.” But do we know that man’s thinking follows the tracks laid down in his own inner conversations? To turn the tracks to which he is tied in the direction in which he wants to go, he must put off his former conversation, which is called in the Bible the Old Man, and be renewed in the spirit of his mind. Speech is the image of mind; therefore, to change his mind, he must first change his speech. By ‘speech’ is meant those mental conversations we carry on with ourselves.
The world is a magic circle of infinite possible mental transformations. For there are an infinite number of possible mental conversations. When man discovers the creative power of inner talking, he will realize his function and his mission in life. Then he can act to a purpose. Without such knowledge, he acts unconsciously. Everything is a manifestation of the mental conversations which go on in us without our being aware of them. But as civilized beings, we must become aware of them and act with a purpose.
How to Get the Results You Want
The principal reasons for failure are :
Lack of confidence and too much effort. Many people block answers to their prayers by failing to fully comprehend the workings of the subconscious mind. When you know how your mind functions, you gain a measure of confidence. You must remember whenever your subconscious mind accepts an idea, it immediately begins to execute it. It uses all its mighty resources to that end and mobilizes all the mental and spiritual laws of your deeper mind. This law is true for good or bad ideas. Consequently, if you use it negatively, it brings trouble, failure, and confusion. When you use it constructively, it brings guidance, freedom, and peace of mind.
The right answer is inevitable when your thoughts are positive, constructive and loving. From this it is perfectly obvious that the only thing you have to do in order to overcome failure is to get your subconscious to accept your idea or request by feeling its reality now, and the law of your mind will do the rest. Turn over your request with faith and confidence and your subconscious will take over and answer for you.
You will always fail to get results by trying to use mental coercion – your subconscious mind does not respond to coercion, it responds to your faith or conscious mind acceptance.
I tell you a truth: There is nothing greater than your own wonderful human imagination! It is he who inspired Blake, Shakespeare, and Einstein, for there is only one spirit in the universe! "Hear, O Israel, the Lord our God, the Lord is One." That one spirit is the human imagination! When Blake was asked what he thought of the divinity of Christ he answered: "Christ is the only God, but so am I and so are you." Don't think of Christ as someone greater than yourself. He is the only God, but so am I and so are you! Don't consider yourself less than Christ, for there is only God, who is your own wonderful human imagination.
AUTO-SUGGESTION is a term which applies to all suggestions and all self-administered stimuli which reach one's mind through the five senses. Stated in another way, auto-suggestion is self-suggestion. It is the agency of communication between that part of the mind where conscious thought takes place, and that which serves as the seat of action for the subconscious mind.
Through the dominating thoughts which one permits to remain in the conscious mind, (whether these thoughts be negative or positive, is immaterial), the principle of auto-suggestion voluntarily reaches the subconscious mind and influences it with these thoughts.
NO THOUGHT, whether it be negative or positive, CAN ENTER THE SUBCONSCIOUS MIND WITHOUT THE AID OF THE PRINCIPLE OF AUTO-SUGGESTION, with the exception of thoughts picked up from the ether. Stated differently, all sense impressions which are perceived through the five senses, are stopped by the CONSCIOUS thinking mind, and may be either passed on to the subconscious mind, or rejected, at will. The conscious faculty serves, therefore, as an outer-guard to the approach of the subconscious.
Fear is a major component of one’s life. Its an annoying companion yet it is here for the ride. Fear is looking at the future and sees what will go wrong. What if my business fails? What if my husband leaves? What if Isis strikes? What if I get sick? What if I get rejected? What If I end life as a failure? So much of our lives are lived in this constant state of worry and anxiety. The price you have to pay for living with those emotions might be too high. Your ego is writing cheques your body can cash. It is all about our scared and fragile ego.
Start now and repeat your mantra in a loop. You will see that it is not that hard. Of course, sometimes you lose yourself in the present moment and have no thoughts at all.
The important thing is to use it as soon as you are aware that thinking is coming. Of course, you have tasks that require you to think and it’s ok.
However, if you have space and within that space useless thinking comes to mind then you ought to repeat your mantra over and over again. It’s you taking control over the thoughts of your mind. It’s 100% achievable. It just requires a bit of discipline
Alcoholism is a treat to humankind and the human mind. Talks bout Alcoholism and addictions to intoxicants need to have a bigger platform.
I am not only talking about the junkies and the hardcore addicts. Intoxicants serve as a escape and a buffer to so many people.
You see every day in every walk of life. You might think they look normal, act normal but their default mode is being intoxicated from the moment they wake up till the end of the day when they fall asleep.
I, myself quit drinking many years ago. I spent 3 months in a meditation center and after that I was done.
It’s hard to remember because it was such a long time ago but I just did not feel like drinking anymore. And I used to love drinking so much.
It was just so much fun but I think deep down I just could not accept that I needed this to actually be a person that enjoys life.
Those intoxicants give you blind spots to the world you don’t want to face but the problem is you can’t stay too long without having to face the consequences on your body, on your health, on your relationships, on your work, etc..
Sooner or later, there will be a price to pay. I see women needing to drink in order to have sex. I see young men destroying their lives for they have no hope.
Apathy with guilt is the lowest vibration you can find. It’s lower than fear. It’s lower than depression. At this level there is little, to no energy. You have given up.
You have just settled for what you think is and what is, is made better through intoxicants.
It’s often debated when it comes to manifestation. On one side you got the one that believes that action is required to make one’s desire to come to fruition. You’ll hear things like the action is the last word in the Law of Attraction or that massive actions are needed once you have the right mindset (i.e) Tony Robbins. On the other hand, you have others who believe that things will come to given the proper way of thinking.
Sadhguru said that when one’s mind is set in the right way. One needs not even lift a finger to have one’s desire manifest so which is it? I want to read one excerpt from Napoleon Hill Think & grow rich book and one except from David Hawkins Letting Go book.
Letting go is very simple but few will apply it to their lives. It’s a discipline of the mind that needs to be cultivated but as Leo from actualized.org, it is a superpower.
Letting go will make your life much easier in every aspect. Whether it is your goals, your spirituality, your relationships. Letting go will help tremendously depending on much you are willing to let go.
Letting go is the disciple of surrender to a particular thing, generally speaking, it’s an emotion that can lead all the way to an attachment. Once you let go it is like putting the weight down. You automatically feel lighter. As Bruce Lee it’s not the daily increase, it’s the daily decrease.
Fear will play a role in your life. You get to choose how much of a role it will have in your life.
We talked about gratitude previously. We are now going to talk about it’s “evil opposite cousin” fear.
Fear is a very low vibration, it’s not the lowest because fear still has a lot of energy as opposed to other vibrations of apathy, guilt, and shame.
Fear can run your life and pretty much ruin it. Fear is looking at the future and seeing all the things which might go wrong.
Fear is not doing things you want to do because you fear what others might say. Fear at its very core boils down to survival.
We fear that we will lose everything and everybody and end up alone, destitute and depressed.
That’s why we want to conform, that’s why we don’t after what we really want. That’s we stick to relationships that do not benefit us.
Fear oftentimes is paralysis by analysis. We see a girl. We are attracted to her but instead of acting we start thinking and she’s gone.
Do the thing you fear and the fear is certain to disappear.
Ralph Waldo Emerson.
Contentment is the highest wealth
Gratitude is a word thrown around so easily these days yet we overlook it so often. Gratitude is an attitude but it’s also a muscle, a practice, a feeling, a must-have in one’s life. The first noble Buddhism is that life is suffering. The cause of suffering is craving. Now I don’t want to sound pessimistic and start ranting on the consumeristic society we live in. In some of my previous content, I talked about the vibration of desire. David Hawkins in his map of consciousness has desire as one of the lower levels of consciousness.
Desire, craving, yearning is trying to find happiness outside of oneself and that’s the reason why it is on a lower level.
Gratitude on the other hand is on a much higher level because it is an appreciation of life. It’s the contentment of our current situation.
It’s adding love to the present moment. When we crave we look for faults in life. We look for the lack of what we don’t have and forsake and take for granted what we do have. When we practice gratitude we look for beauty and put the lens and magnify the beauty in our own life.
Perspective matter. We lost it. Media and ads trick us with subliminal messages to want more and more. We succumb to peer pressure. Our need to conform coupled with our desire and insecurity put us in an everlasting rat race.
Gratitude is the answer. Gratitude is the key. Gratitude is our guardian angel. Gratitude will save us. Gratitude is the best attitude to adopt.
Stay put, I will you guys more examples and ways to adopt gratitude in your own life. Gratitude is not only to manifest our desired reality. Gratitude is also for those harder moments in life. The inevitable ups and downs. When you adopt an attitude of gratitude. You’ll have a more general sense of well being but shit still happens because that’s just life.
We have no control over life. Life is ephemeral, transient, and fragile. I am not saying that because it’s negative. It is what it is. However, life is more beautiful because of those facts of nature. Because things don’t last we have to care more. Because relationships will end one way or another we have to care more. Because we will get old and die we have to care for our bodies and mind. If we were immortal and could control everything in our external world gratitude would be useless but because the outside is subject to the law of uncertainty, decay, and death we MUST have gratitude.
We must stay in the present moment, we must have gratitude for that moment. We have to shine a light on all that is beautiful in life.
Shakespeare said that it is no good or bad. Only thinking makes it so. The “good” and the “bad” is always available. Shine more light on the good.
When the “bad” happens, there is always a silver lining. Look deeper.
When you are sick, be appreciative of the rest of your body that is healthy and look at the sickness as a growing pain because sickness, old age, and death are the greatest teacher and bring the most wisdom.
Have perspective, instead of always looking at those who have more and are seemingly happier. Look at those of have less and look and how much you really have and lucky you actually are. You will realize more and more that you are so blessed and lucky.
Why sports are so captivating? Sports inspire, empower, and keep us on our toes. We can just glance at how much money athletes are making, to understand how important sports are, in our modern world. World cups, playoffs, Super Bowls, grand slams, master cups, and the list goes on. Why are those events so captivating? Why are our eyes so locked in during an event? Why do they make us so emotional? The answer is one word. Greatness. We love to witness greatness. We love to see athletes comeback, fight back, risk it all when the stakes are high and there are only a few seconds left on the clock. Sports are physical but if you look at any sports show, they will, more often than not, talk about the intangibles. Michael Jordan had that killer mentality. Roger Federer is so calm and at peace. Floyd Mayweather is so composed and in control. The mental aspect of sports is so much more important than what people might think. That’s why we tune in to watch live events. That’s why we cheer. That’s why our hearts stop and that’s why we are tense. When we watch a popular sports event, what fascinates us, is witnessing the impossible becoming possible. Nowhere else can we get a thrill like that. We watch those athletes and think to ourselves “how the hell did he/she do that ?” For that reason, sports are ubiquitous and incredibly inspiring, for they make us believe in ourselves and the power of disciplining the mind and the body.
Will Smith, the law of attraction (inspiration at its best) As Will Smith said to his son in the great movie “The Pursuit of Happyness”: “You got a dream you got to protect it. Don’t let anybody say that you can’t achieve your dreams, even me. People can’t do that and want to persuade you that you can’t either. Don’t listen, you got a dream, go get it. Period.” “Being realistic is the most common road to mediocrity” _Will Smith_
Oprah Winfrey | Think like a queen. A queen is not afraid to fail. Failure is another steppingstone to greatness! (Law of attraction) Your only job is to, as much as possible, as often as possible, let go of everything preventing/blocking that stillness. For that, you need to allow yourself to be imperfect. Part of Oprah Winfrey success is due to the fact that people were able to relate to her. They could see her as a friend even though she was a worldwide megastar. In one of her interviews, she mentioned that she had made a mistake mispronouncing the name of a country. At first, she felt bad about it. She thought about it and realized that nothing was wrong with her mistakes. Mistakes make us more authentic. Everybody loves people who are natural. And being natural means making mistakes and owning them. Allowing yourself to be imperfect. Be fearless. Oprah Winfrey had to overcome a lot of things in her life to get to where she was. For that she needed courage.
Jim Carrey has always been a great law of attraction practitioner and a great believer in its power, so he did get all he ever wanted but it was not all rainbows and butterflies.
Jim Carrey is also known for being on Prozac for a long time and suffering from depression. He called it a low level of despair. He had to deal with it for a large part of his life.
Why Jim Carrey is such an interesting case study? Jim Carrey is the proof you can truly receive all you want from the universe. That being said, Jim Carrey can also serve as a cautionary tale to prevent us from the “dangers” of some of our desires.
Perhaps we should, in fact, beware of what we wish for, and for what reasons, we would want such things to manifest into our physical reality. Furthermore, maybe there is something better than desiring and getting or not getting what we want. Maybe there is inside of us, something that is enough and needs no further validation.
Perhaps we are truly enough, not at the end of our journey when all success and desires have come to pass but perhaps to begin with, regardless of anything in our outside circumstances.
Allow yourself to truly love life After Kanye West had his accident, and not unlike a lot of people in the same situation, he found a new way to appreciate life. As corny as it might sound, life is too short and unpredictable to waste it on negativity. Kevin Hart talks about relentless positivity. He talks about not giving way to negativity, for it will only drain you of your PRECIOUS finite energy. It might seem hard for a lot of us, depending on where you stand at the moment but it is a worthwhile aspiration and it does not need to be a hard one. Oftentimes we don’t realize that we are simply not allowing ourselves to be free, joyful, and positive. We refuse ourselves that joy. You might disagree, but how many times were you having a great time, a great moment, and all of a sudden, some negative thoughts started entering your mind and you started dwelling on them. As a consequence, your good vibe was slowly or quickly destroyed. That’s a refusal. That’s you, accepting the negative thoughts and refusing to sustain that moment of happiness.
One of the turning points of his life is when his elder sister got the movie “The Secret” for him. She thought it might help him. At that time Conor was pretty lost and purposeless. Conor became an avid practitioner of the law of attraction after watching the movie, and his wife Dee believed wholeheartedly that her husband would make it as an MMA superstar. Times were hard for many years, at one-point Conor McGregor became a fighter in the Cage Warrior promotion, one of the most popular in Europe. He rapidly rose through the ranks and won two belts in two different weight classes. Other promotions were paying attention to this upcoming young fighter from Ireland. The UFC had their eyes on him. Dana White, the CEO extraordinaire of the company flew over to meet him. He was impressed by Conor McGregor. Not only for his prowess’s in the ring but for that X factor, he also had. That elusive thing is possessed by so many of those high achievers.
I want you not to compare yourself to anybody. Those stories are meant only to give you the inspiration that this stuff works.
The timeframe is different for everybody and yes at first you might stumble and fall because you are rewiring your mind.
That’s not necessarily an easy task, some people have a mind that is easily convinced of the power of intention and have little, to no resistance, and/or limiting beliefs.
A lot of us have some things that we need to turn around and get better at. We might need to love ourselves more, meditate more, stop listening to others more often, removing people who are toxic, etc,etc..
It’s about the journey, I know it’s a cliché but it’s true nonetheless. Take the time you need and know that eventually, you will get there.
Trials and errors apply for the mind as well. A lot of us think of the LOA as something simple and easy. It is simple but not necessarily easy, especially at the beginning.
We need to understand that all the work is from the inside out. We might not get everything overnight but we can get better and better over time and when we reach that pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, we can look back and say to ourselves that it was an amazing journey.
Before you practice any of the law of attraction techniques, you want to meditate and make your mind as still as you possibly can. It is better to do this when you wake up or before going to sleep or both. At first, you will try to control, thoughts, sensations, feelings, visions come, and go into your mind. You are trying so hard to empty your mind yet it becomes more and more restless. You push harder and now you got a headache.
You are drained and want to give up then something magical happens. You give in, you accept and you let go. You breathe in and breathe out while following the continuous rise and fall of your stomach and just catching and releasing with your awareness, all the things coming in your mind and always reverting back to the rising and falling of your stomach.
All of sudden the restlessness is lessened, fewer thoughts are coming in, your body feels lighter and slowly but most definitely surely, your mind is getting emptier. Now your breath is swift and smooth. Meditation becomes effortless. Now you are happy and contented with this moment. Now you feel at peace. Now is the best time to focus on your visualization. Don’t worry about if you are peaceful and still enough. You don’t need to be blissed out of your skulls to do some visualization, just still enough where there is nothing much distracting you and little, to no negativity.
Always stay in the present moment. Meditation helps you calm the mind and be as still as you possibly can. You often hear, not to apply the techniques of the law of attraction when you are feeling overwhelmed or too negative. It’s true. You should not. What you can do is meditate. Meditation will help you let go of all the negativity and put you in a more balanced state of mind where you will more and more clarity. Meditation should serve as a foundation for your meditation practice.
Napoleon Hill wrote:
THERE IS NO SUBSTITUTE FOR PERSISTENCE! It cannot be supplanted by any other quality! Remember this, and it will hearten you, in the beginning, when the going may seem difficult and slow.
Those who have cultivated the HABIT of persistence seem to enjoy insurance against failure. No matter how many times they are defeated, they finally arrive up toward the top of the ladder. Sometimes it appears that there is a hidden Guide whose duty is to test men through all sorts of discouraging experiences. Those who pick themselves up after defeat and keep on trying, arrive; and the world cries, “Bravo! I knew you could do it!”
Those who can ”take it” are bountifully rewarded for their PERSISTENCE. They receive, as their compensation, whatever goal they are pursuing. That is not all! They receive something infinitely more important than material compensation--the knowledge that” EVERY FAILURE BRINGS WITH IT THE SEED OF AN EQUIVALENT ADVANTAGE.”
Jesus talks about a woman who came to a judge in the middle of the night and ask for help. The judge told her to come back again in the morning. The woman would have any of it. She kept on banging on the door till finally in exasperation the judge opened the door and tended to her needs.
The second step of the SPEC method is to Project it.
Helene Hadsell used visualization as her number one tool to get what she wanted but there is more than one way to skin a cat.
Visualization is not necessarily something that comes easy to all of us and oftentimes it leads to so many questions pertaining to whether we are doing it well or not, which can be very frustrating and discouraging.
Visualization is a powerful tool. I remember watching Tony Robbins on YouTube once and he was talking with two other self-made millionaires. He was emphasizing the power of visualization.
He gave a great example of the power of the mind. A study was made where they took a group of basketball players and tried to improve their free-throw shooting percentage.
They divided those basketball players into three groups.
One group was shooting countless free throws for 6 weeks in each practice. One group was not shooting free throws at all for 6 weeks.
One group was not shooting free throws as well but they were asked to visualize making perfect free throws in their minds.
After these 6 weeks period they tested all three groups to see who had the better shooting percentage and the group who had visualized ended having better success than the other two groups.
Jack Niklaus is widely regarded as the greatest golfer of all time, even ahead of Tiger Woods. He is the only golfer to have ever won 18 PGA majors.
Jack is known to have visualized every single shot he ever made, including those made in practice. That’s one of the reasons why he was so successful.
This is the method Helene invented and it is pretty straightforward. S stands for select it. P stands for project it. E stands for Expect it and C stands for collect it. Now let’s dissect it a bit more.
Select it is rather simple. One has to know what one desires. Sometimes it can be hard though. A lot of people are lost and confused when it comes to this.
Helene did not think twice when it came to her desire. She knew what she wanted and a lot of times, the desires of her family became her own as well.
She would ask one or more of her loved ones what they wanted and she would get it for them but to do so, she would have to make it her desire.
Your feelings show you what you want and what you don’t want. When you feel good, it is something that you want more of and when you don’t feel good, it is something you want less of. You might not be able to put a finger on exactly what you want but with a bit of meditation and self-awareness, you will be more tuned in to what is your desire, your true desire. One way you can go about it is through your feeling instead of searching for something you want, just go for the feeling. A lot of Abraham Hicks work is based on that premise. Ultimately whatever we want boils down to the feeling we will get once our wish is fulfilled, so why not start with conjuring up the feeling first. People usually think that one should manifest a certain thing then feel good but if you feel good to begin with, that’s where the magic happens and that’s your first manifestation: the feeling. Once you take care of this, the rest will unfold naturally. Whether you know exactly what you want or not, at the very least you know that you want to feel good.
Sometimes meditation will fall short of giving you the relief from an overwhelming state of mind. The next best thing is to take a nap. Usually you will wake up feeling much better than you felt prior to the nap.
We are social creatures and no matter how much it hurts us to admit. Our reputation matters.
We choose an identity and show up in the world a certain way and expect people to see us in a certain light.
We all have something or many things we would like to change or would like to be different in the way we look. Some can easily be changed, altered, modified... others might cost money, need time and patience to transform.
