Chapter 3 Faith:  Visualization of
and belief in the Attainment of Desire!

All thoughts which have been emotionalized (stirred and mixed one
or more of the positive emotions) and combined with the confidence
of faith begin immediately to translate themselves into their
physical equivalent or counterpart.

Be assured and understand that the subconscious mind will translate
into its physical equivalent, a thought impulse of a negative or
destructive nature, just as readily as it will act upon the thought
impulses of a positive or constructive nature.

Be patient, have faith and work towards what you desire. Faith is
not sitting on my hands and hoping something good happens. Faith.
is not simply putting my toe in the water and pulling back because
it’s not comfortable. Real faith is not being stopped by roadblocks,
nay-sayers, or the ghost of what-ifs. Real faith stands out with
heads held high repeatedly say “I will do whatever it takes.’ There
is no stopping 3 feet short

As a person of spiritual faith, I have known deep within my being
God is real. Every part of who I am, what I want to be and what is
in my future is summed up by God the Father, God the Son and God
the Holy Spirit. IN THIS I HAVE NO DOUBT.

Yet, I have doubted or shown a lack of faith myself. For years I
have dealt with unreal and non-event fears. Such as I not good enough,
I can’t syndrome or those negative statements I heard from family,
friends and the not so friendly.

“Faith is believing that God is going to take you places before you
even get there.” —Matthew Barnett

This is no longer what I see in myself. I have discovered the real me
and I like what I see.

The HOW to obtain a big, stronger faith is a better understanding of
the importance of the principle of autosuggestion. Faith, when stimulated
with the use of self-talk, is where the transmutation of desire into its
physical, or monetary equivalent can grow. FAITH is a state of mind which
may be induced, or created, by affirmation or repeated instructions to
the subconscious mind, through the principle of autosuggestion.

Thank you, Linda and Michael, for living out your faith, building this
mastermind to aid us in building and growing our faith in ourselves.
Bob Shoaf thanks for being the example of living faith as a friend and
personal mentor. My gratitude to everyone who participates in the weekly
calls and brings your living faith. A special thanks to you who received
​my e-book and allow me to serve and mentor you.
