The Twelfth Step toward Riches

MORE than twenty years ago (when written, in the early 90's), the author, working in conjunction with the late Dr. Alexander Graham Bell, and Dr. Elmer R. Gates, observed that every human brain is both a broadcasting and receiving station for the vibration of thought. Through the medium of the ether, in a fashion similar to that employed by the radio broadcasting principle, every human brain is capable of picking up vibrations of thought which are being released by other brains.

This paragraph might explain something which has constantly made me question a number of the abilities possessed by the human brain, perhaps you can offer an opinion?

From the time, he could speak until aged around six or seven, one of my sons would occasionally talk about things which had happened in his life “when he was big before he was little”, which we took to suggest he thought he had had, and was talking about a former life.

Each story was told in the most matter of fact way with good descriptions of the surroundings in which the particular event had happened, such what his wife looked like and living in a small dark house with a stone floor and dried matting on the floor or descriptions of the food he ate and tools he had used in his job.

Although odd, and as he seemed entirely comfortable telling us these stories we simply assumed they were the product of his imagination so although puzzled, we were not in any way concerned.

There is one particular story though which, even many years later still has me wondering: We were on a day trip to one of the many resort towns in Devon and decided to stop for lunch by the seaside. As we stopped my son told us “You will like the painted ceiling where we are going to eat, I painted it just after it was built one of the times I was big before I was little. As he had never been to the town before, never mind the building, we were really surprised at what he had said.

Walking into the building, sure enough the domed ceiling had a number of local views painted on it with a restaurant on the first floor and a small shopping arcade on the ground floor. On a small lectern was the story of the building which told how it had opened as a small seaside theatre but had closed down many years ago, however, five years prior to our visit the, by then, badly neglected building had been completely refurbished including replacing the original ceiling paintings and wood wall claddings.

Although there are religions which believe in re-incarnation in one form or another, it is not a belief of mine but I have to wonder whether my son was receiving thought transmissions through the ether as Hill tells us has been observed or were these his own memories or imagination, whatever the reason, how could a five-year-old know about that painted ceiling?

 Because, the frequency of these stories faded away as he grew older, I eventually asked him if he had forgotten all about them – his answer was entirely logical for a seven-year old,  “Not really but God gives us one brain and as you get older it has to forget some things to make room for all the new learning we have to do”

Hill tells us “It has been determined that there are from 10,000,000,000 to 14,000,000,000 nerve cells in the human cerebral cortex, and we know that these are arranged in definite patterns. These arrangements are not haphazard. They are orderly. Recently developed methods of electro-physiology draw off action currents from very precisely located cells, or fibres with micro-electrodes, amplify them with radio tubes, and record potential differences to a millionth of a volt.”

It is inconceivable that such a network of intricate machinery should be in existence for the sole purpose of carrying on the physical functions incidental to growth and maintenance of the physical body. Is it not likely that the same system, which gives billions of brain cells the media for communication one with another, provides, also the means of communication with other intangible forces?

As Henry Ford famously had many of the cleverest minds from history in his Mastermind Group it surely suggests the brain, including both the conscious and unconscious parts if correctly directed and a process applied, such as through our daily self-talk, has a far greater capacity than most people ever give it credit for, including the ability to change wants and desires into our own reality?
