In a previous lesson you practiced bringing your awareness into the present moment. Hopefully, you were able to feel that by shifting the focus of your mind to what is actually happening around you in this moment, your emotional state literally changed to a calmer, more appreciative level.
This is the first step to using the focus of your mind. Once you feel the power available to you in the present, you can then begin to focus on how to bring about the events of your life that you desire.
The ability to focus your mind is the most physically practical skill you can develop. The simple reason for this is that the focus of your mind attracts to you the experiences that you consistently dwell upon. I realize that I am beginning to repeat myself, but it is vital that you truly understand this truth if you are committed to enjoying prosperity in your life.
The part of your inner self that we call the subconscious mind literally creates for you the experiences of your life. But this creation is not random, arbitrary, or accidental in any way, and you are definitely in charge of this power.
Your inner mind faithfully creates your life experiences according to your conscious beliefs. And you have one hundred percent control over the thoughts of your conscious mind. This should be an extremely liberating idea, for you are free to choose precisely the focus of your mind and the direction of your life.
So in order to bring experiences of prosperity into your life, you must focus on the wealth you already have, be grateful for the blessings that are already in your life, and focus on the abilities you already possess that will bring wealth to you.
By practicing each day, as you are now doing, you will naturally change your consciousness from a state of lack to a state of abundance. Remember to practice the focussing technique you learned yesterday.
Simply be where you are, and notice the world as it is in this moment. Then focus your mind on how you wish things to be, and project your desires out into the world.
“The forces of Nature are at the disposal of the person of vigor and determination and desire. Such a one has but to knock at the door of attainment and have it opened to him.” –William Walker Atkinson
