Elevating Your Life with Positive Thoughts and Techniques

Inspired by Rev Ike

Today, let's dive into the art and science of achieving and maintaining health, happiness, love, success, prosperity, and money. This pursuit, often termed the science of living, is truly a technology of living, offering practical avenues to accomplish your deepest desires. One such avenue I want to explore with you is the power of positive thoughts, encapsulated in what I call a Success Idea.

A Success Idea is a potent concept that can transform your life. It's rooted in the understanding that everything in your life emanates from the ideas harbored within your mind. Therefore, advancing in life necessitates nurturing empowering ideas within. Each month, I share what I call a "spoonful of positive ideas" to feed your mind, fortifying it for the purpose you envision.

Taking time daily, about 10 to 20 minutes, to absorb and reflect upon a powerful idea can yield remarkable changes. As the Bible wisely states, "As a man thinks in his heart, so is he." This idea forms the basis of a transformative technique employed by successful individuals like W. Clement Stone, who championed Positive Mental Attitude (PMA).

Stone's daily practice of affirming, "I feel good, I feel great, I feel terrific," might seem unconventional to some. Yet, it embodies a profound truth: your feelings shape your reality. By consciously uplifting your feelings, you elevate your entire experience of life. This can be likened to spiritual and mental techniques that enhance your well-being.

Engaging in activities that uplift your emotions—whether through music, positive affirmations, or communal celebrations—constitutes a powerful spiritual practice. Remember, what elevates your feeling nature without harming yourself or others is a spiritually sound technique. Refrain from dwelling on past negativity or engaging with content that lowers your vibrations.

The ancient allegory of Moses lifting the serpent in the wilderness resonates deeply here. The serpent symbolizes our feeling nature. Just as Moses lifted the serpent to heal and uplift, we must elevate our feelings, hearts, and minds for true transformation. This isn't about denying challenges but rather meeting them with a spirit of joy, happiness, and positive expectation.

Sometimes, we may wonder why good people suffer or why life seems challenging. The answer often lies in how we relate to our thoughts and emotions. Being morally upright isn't enough; we must also learn to navigate our mental and emotional landscapes positively. Dwelling on problems perpetuates them, whereas focusing on solutions and uplifting thoughts creates a different reality.

In summary, the technique I advocate is one of lifting up your feelings and meeting life with positivity, joy, and expectation. It's about recognizing the power within you to shape your reality and choosing thoughts and actions that align with your desired experiences. As you cultivate this mindset, you'll find yourself riding high on happiness, empowered to create a life filled with abundance, love, and fulfillment.

Remember, you have the power to change your narrative and live a life that reflects your deepest aspirations. Embrace the practice of uplifting your feelings, and watch as your reality transforms in beautiful ways.

As always, I leave you with this empowering thought: "I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills from whence cometh my help." Whatever helps you rise above negativity and embrace positivity is a step towards a more fulfilling life.
