Chapter 3, Faith-Visualization of a Belief in
Attainment of Desre
Faith is the eternal elixir which gives life, power and action to the impulse of thought.
How do we acquire this eternal elixir? It has been my experience that we can have thoughts, but these thoughts have to be a part of our whole body. The thought starts in our mind but until I feel it in my legs, arms, heart, and in the way that we conduct ourselves it won’t be translated into Fatih. When we have a thought about wanting to accomplish a goal we have to put our mind into motion to plan how this thought can be put into action. We must consider all possibilities and settle for the one that makes you want to put your whole body into action.
The mind must concentrate on the steps necessary and control the rest of the body to follow each step. When temptations or distractions come in our way we need to visualize whether that will help to get to this goal or will it delay the action in getting to the goal.
My goal is to get out of debt. I have been working on this for three years. There have been times that I wanted to use the money I have put aside to accomplish this goal for material things that I needed but visualizing what will happen when I am completely out of debt has helped to keep myself on track. Three years of really saying,”No”, to material things that I wanted has been very difficult. I know now through saying my self-talk and really believing in what I am saying I will be completely out of debt at the end of 2019. I feel this belief in all parts of my body.
There has been times of difficulties where I have been distracted but knowing that Faith is the eternal elixir that gives life, power and action to the impulses of my thoughts and concentrating on my goal I am accomplishing my desire.
