The Seven Hermetic Principles:
Making Them Practical
The 7 Hermetic Principles: Making them Practical
Preamble - Making Magick Practical
The magick of humanity is not supernatural. The magick of humanity is that your brain is designed - yes - designed by a creator, to help you create your reality. If you want to achieve something your brain will help you in a variety of ways. Your imagination will start by generating ideas. When you focus on something and work toward it it will create neuro pathways making your efforts easier.
The more knowledge you have the more realistic those imagination generated ideas will be. Applying critical thinking is paramount because the imagination, when there is a void of information will make things up.
This is a magickal process and those who can take advantage of opportunities will achieve anything they want. Millions have done it all throughout history. Millions have set goals, worked toward them, and achieved the seemingly miraculous.
What good is magick if you can't use it to make the world a better place? We already know there is a cabal of black magicians using their power and influence to change society.
They are involved in Human Trafficking, Sex Trafficking, and the Sexualization of Children in TV, Movies and Media. It is sickening the way they normalize this - It is called Grooming (a word the political left does not want you to use and the right is no better) Desensitization is insidiously gradual. What do you overlook now that you did not before? what have you developed "an evolved attitude" toward?
They compromise Celebrities, Captains of Industry and Politicians by throwing Drug infested orgies and victimizing under aged girls and boys. They prostitute and enslave the helpless by grooming the vulnerable and normalizing filth. The give easy sentences to sex offenders and minimize the rape and molestation of children.
Like the devil - they have convinced the world they are not doing this, that it is a hoax. The False Flag report on Pizza Gate was part of that.
Then came Jeffery Epstein - This is amazingly revealing - (https://fb.watch/cj6yUjFTf0/) and the operation he ran for decades. It totally slipped under the radar. It implicated many people of power from politicians to celebrities and even royalty.
They are a powerful group with lots of money and influence and have much greater power than any of us or any group those on the Light side of magick could ever muster. Why - We are good. We do not want to believe any of this really goes on.
I am not going to rail against them. They have their free will, given by God/Goddess. I believe they will have to deal with God/Goddess when the time comes. Our existence on this plane of manifestation is temporary. We are here to be the best people we can be according to our values.
I do not focus on the evil in the world. I am aware of it but working to counter it just gives it more power. If I call attention to what they do they could turn their machine against me and there is nothing I could do to stop them. I am here to work on myself, to make my world a better place.
Getting caught up fighting them would just cause me, those who would follow me or use my work here to fight them miserable and leave them feeling hopeless (I have tried and it led me to a very dark place for many years. They, together, are much more powerful than I or any of us could ever be.
However, there are those who do fight it, they can be much more effective and you can support them below. In other words- pick your battles, realize your limitations and do what you can with humility. Realize - you can be corrupted and flee from temptation unless you have the proper skills and trust me, most of us on the light side do not.
Romans 12:19 - Beloved, never avenge yourselves, but leave it to the wrath of God, for it is written, “Vengeance is mine, I will repay, says the Lord.”
I am not a Christian. However, The Bible is a book of magick and spells, a system unto its own with its own deity, just as pagans have The Goddess and God. I, myself, prefer a more deistic concept. (Interestingly enough the writers of the English Bible have removed Asherah, The consort of El, and later Yahweh, The very powerful balancing Goddess of trees and groves, much like the pagan Idea of The Goddess.
They destroyed her temples and referred to her priestesses as temple prostitutes to malign them and blame them for Yahweh being "Jealous". Christianity is way out of balance but there is still wisdom in The Bible as with many other religious texts. Religion, for me, is just men trying to consolidate the patriarchy and make the importance of the feminine balancing perspective unimportant.
God/Goddess - created the universe by way of mathematical principles and Physical laws - yet the Quantum world shows us many things we cannot explain and seem to contradict the Newtonian world.
Science is important, a way of discovering and becoming aware of the true miracle the universe is, and can tell us some of how it all works. I do not believe God/Goddess interferes on our behalf because we are all, in essence, creators in our own right. We all choose our own path and God/Goddess allows that.
Use your magick to make your world a better place. Protect yourself from evil but do not fight it. Jiddu Krishnamurti talked about conflict. Be who you are, be true to yourself. If you want to be good have nothing to do with evil. You cannot do anything. Not in the world today. it has grown too powerful.
There are literally many holocausts going on right before our eyes every day - the ease of Abortion (I am not against a woman's right to choose - it is her body and if there are consequences she will have to deal with them), Human Trafficking, Sex Trafficking, etc... and it is all state-sanctioned - refugees created by war end up being exploited. Satan (Evil) is the God of this world.
I truly believe it will all work out for the best in the end. Focus on goodness. Realize your strengths and weaknesses, pick your battles, and support those who can do what you cannot. You may not be able to fight it directly but that does not mean you have to be a good person who does nothing.

1. I. THE PRINCIPLE OF MENTALISM
Neuroscience teaches us that the mind is a wonderful thing. Whatever we choose to focus on and expend our energy on, the brain will subconsciously help us to clarify the ideas and solve the problems we face, subconsciously if we apply critical thinking to the ideas generated by the imagination. That is the magic all humans have, intrinsically but few realize the implications of.
There is a book by Mark Stavish called Egregores, an occult concept representing a "thoughtform" or "collective group mind", an autonomous psychic entity made up of and influencing, the thoughts of a group of people. The symbiotic relationship between an egregore and its group has been compared to the more recent, non-occult concepts of the corporation (as a legal entity) and the meme. (https://languagehat.com/egregore/#:~:text=Egregore%20(also%20egregor)%20is%20an,of%20a%20group%20of%20people.)
A nation is held together by an idea. As long as the will of the people in a nation believe in and work toward the betterment of a nation in kind, believing in the same basic ideas, like freedom and democracy, and working together wisely sustains those ideas the nation will prosper.
However, when enough people work against those ideas or challenge the validity of those ideas, or seek to weaken the power those ideas have over individuals the nation will start to break down.
This is not only true with nations, it is true with any organization comprised of people. Therefore the need for the responsible use of propaganda. Propaganda can be both positive and negative.
Positive propaganda supports the egregore, negative propaganda does not and even seeks to tear down that egregore, defined in this respect as a guiding idea that ties a group together.
Note- positive does not always mean constructive and negative does not always mean destructive. Sometimes change is needed but to change too quickly can throw that nation or human organization into chaos. Change can be difficult.
What we cannot achieve alone – we can achieve together. Groups of people are more powerful than individuals. Even a powerful individual can have little effect on an egregore. However, a large group of powerful individuals, like The World Economic Forum, combine their resources to influence huge numbers of people with a wide variety of institutions like news agencies and social media platforms that propaganda can break down the guiding egregore of a nation by calling into question the validity of institutions of government and law enforcement.
Focusing on all the negative aspects of society, and exaggerating chaotic events the people, who give power to the idea of a nation or organization no longer agree on how best to guide that nation or organization and start working against the initial ideas that tied that nation together. They weaken the organization or nation.
That weakness makes that organization or nation vulnerable not only to differing ideas of governing from the inside of the larger group but more vulnerable to ideas outside the group. Those guided by the ideas of democracy and liberty see the weaknesses inherent in all human organizations and become open to the ideas outside the group like those of communism and totalitarianism.
However, even the egregore of communism and totalitarianism are subject to the same weaknesses of democracy and liberty, namely internal corruption. All humans are corruptible, therefore all governments and human-led organizations are corruptible.
Realizing this we should all realize that scrapping an idea to institute another will eventually lead to the same problems and powerful individuals who challenge the new order will band together and seek to change it such as happened in the French, and American Revolutions and now, The World Economic Forum.
Revolutions use war, and war is always the end result of a radical change of ideas, such as those put forth by The World Economic Forum and the new move toward programmable digital currencies, which would allow central banking institutions and the governments that regulate them complete control over whom we buy from as well as whom we buy from. as well as who can buy and sell and what they can buy and sell.
This is the importance of occult principles and why they have been hidden from the masses as the elites who understand these ideas use them against those ignorant of the truth – All is mind. Ideas change humanity.
We all have a choice. Give in to the new ideas, making change easier, or fight against those changes making change more difficult. The more powerful group will always win but that does not mean the more powerful group, in the beginning, will remain the more powerful group in the end. Therefore Thomas Jefferson said, “I hold it that a little rebellion now and then is a good thing, and as necessary in the political world as storms in the physical.”
All ideas are Demonic in that they arise from the human will if you are a satanist. However, if you believe in a benevolent God Good ideas can be considered Angelic, dualism, ideas are good or bad, people are good or bad, The Biblical God is good and the Devil is bad even though we see the God of the bible doing bad things and even says he creates evil.
The reality is - THE ALL - represents balance. The individual is God and the individual decides what is good and what is evil. Those ideas are spread through propaganda, people give power to the ideas they prefer, therefore the more people who agree on the goodness or badness of an idea make that idea more powerful. Egregores have real existence in the real world so I will repeat the following:
Whatever we choose to focus on and expend our energy on, the brain will subconsciously help us to clarify the ideas and solve the problems we face, subconsciously if we apply critical thinking to the ideas generated by the imagination. That is the magic all humans have, intrinsically but few realize the implications of. In this respect, WE ARE ALL gods and give our power to the egregore we prefer, which is GOD.
2. The Principle of Correspondence
I am reminded here of the story of the two wolves. One wolf is associated with goodness, JOY, PEACE LOVE, HOPE SERENITY, HUMILITY, KINDNESS, BENEVOLENCE, EMPATHY, GENEROSITY, TRUTH, COMPASSION, AND FAITH." The other is associated with evil ANGER,
ENVY, JEALOUSY, SORROW, REGRET, GREED, ARROGANCE, SELF-PITY, GUILT, RESENTMENT,
INFERIORITY, LIES, FALSE PRIDE, SUPERIORITY, AND EGO.
God is associated with the higher mind, or the human potential to act in such a way as to act with the qualities represented by the good wolf and The Devil is associated with the qualities represented by the evil wolf. The former represents the concept of dualism. If we act with the higher mind we build up. If we act with the lower mind we tear down. One brings a positive result, the other a negative result.
We are all dual creatures. We all have the capacity for good as well as the potential to do evil. Dualism is the view that the mind and body both exist as separate entities. Descartes / Cartesian dualism argues that there is a two-way interaction between mental and physical substances. If we act in a positive way the body will be healthier and happier - the body is affected by one's attitude. If we act in a negative way the body responds to that state of mind in that the body will be more susceptible to illness and depression. This fact is born out by many scientific studies on health and wellness.
I am also reminded of the proverb, "If you seek revenge, dig two graves, one for yourself. Seeking to harm others has consequences on the psyche. Wishing harm to others opens one to negative influences. I always say, hate is hate, harm is harm - if you justify hate or harm to others in one circumstance it makes it easier to allow oneself to justify hatred or harm in other circumstances. The more one does something negative the more desensitized one becomes to negativity. Why do you think there are so many charms, talismans, and amulets that guard against evil?
3. The Principle of Vibration
Everything Vibrates from the tiniest subatomic particle to the tallest mountain. Vibrations are energy and are not localized. They travel and have an effect on everything they encounter.
Have you ever noticed that when you listen to your favorite music you feel better and the louder you play it the more that feeling is amplified? Music can change your mood, attitude, and your entire mindset and can take you from feeling hopeless to feeling invincible.
Words, too, vibrate. I have a very powerful voice. I am also very passionate. People tell me all the time they can feel what I am feeling, There is power in integrity, honesty, and positivity just as with the opposite. I listen to naysayers and am curious as to why they seem to affect those around them so deeply. Positive people have an effect as well but negativity spreads more easily because we receive thousands of marketing messages per day that capitalize on your fears and tell you you are not good enough without their products.
STOP BELIEVING that shit. Think for yourself. PARTICULARLY when it comes to government. It was not until the 90's that people started believing the government was a reliable source of information about the motives of their marketing schemes. The FDA was led for a while by an attorney who previously was a lead counsel for a pharmaceutical manufacturer. Sales of psychiatric drugs went from $500 Million per year to $800 Billion.
They did it with words and music. Happy little narratives evoked hope and springtime music with happy images of families picnicking in the park surrounded by birds and animals. The reality is these drugs cause apathy (lack of motivation) and akathisia (a constant high level of anxiety), psychosis, hallucinations, and a 50% increase in suicidality and many other issues including addiction. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QFrEH7df-hs
They also make you more compliant. They are useful for extreme cases but CBT and RET and other therapies helped me more than any of those drugs and I am now drug-free since 10/2019. I am much better than when on them. It just takes a little more work.
How do you become a powerful magician? Healthy Diet and Plenty of Exercise. Keep your mind sharp by READING books that inspire and incorporate the use the imagination (visualization). Create elaborate rituals because they help the mo=ind stay focussed and a focused mind will help you manifest into your life the things that are lacking. There is an old saying: as you think, So shall you do. Your brain will unconsciously help you solve whatever problem you think you have unconsciously through the imagination and then apply critical thinking to the ideas your mind generates.
Pay attention to the tenants of Media Literacy to escape the lies of marketing companies.
1. Who made this?
2. Who is the target audience?
3. Who paid for this? Or, who gets paid if you click on this?
4. Who might benefit or be harmed by this message?
5. What is left out of this message that might be important?
6. Is this credible (and what makes you think that)?
Below are variations of, The Hamsa, or Hand of Fatima.
4. THE PRINCIPLE OF POLARITY
"Everything is Dual; everything has poles; everything has its pair of opposites; like and unlike are the same; opposites are identical in nature, but different in degree; extremes meet; all truths are but half-truths; all paradoxes may be reconciled." — The Kybalion.
Do you respect Magick? Due to a brain injury, I do not deal with ambiguity well. For me, communication must be clear and unambiguous. I can adjust, it just takes longer to process.
When I know something and that something seems to change with cultural norms I have to work a little harder to make sense of the proposed change and I do not consider cultural trends or peer pressure.
I use critical thinking. Unfortunately, our modern educational system does not teach critical thinking, it does not abide questions and insists one accept what one is told. This is not education, it is indoctrination.
Questioning is so important. Feeling free to ask questions and having those questions answered was the basis of The Socratic System. The students would ask Socrates a question and he would answer. Socrates never said - that is not a valid question, hence the saying - There are no stupid questions. Always feel free to ask, never just believe anything. The modern media is full of propaganda so always consider these questions:
Who made this?
Who is the target audience?
Who paid for this? Or, who gets paid if you click on this?
Who might benefit or be harmed by this message?
What is left out of this message that might be important?
Is this credible (and what makes you think that)?
Honesty is everything and this is how we make this 4th principle practical. You are either honest or you are not. You have integrity or you do not. Even one intentional lie, either of commission or omission means you are not honest. What compromises are you willing to make before your integrity no longer exists?
Examine all your beliefs, all of them, do you really believe it in your heart of hearts or are you going along with the crowd and what is popular? Are you acting on what is right or are you acting out of fear?
Who are you, really. Is your answer convincing to you? Can you defend it intelligently? are you prepared to consider that you may be wrong and, more importantly, are you willing to correct yourself. This is the perfect beauty of science - it self-corrects. Many theories have been abandoned or changed when scrutiny was applied and was found to not be supported by evidence.
What are you considering as evidence? I feel in my bones there is a God (Goddess). I cannot defend it with tangible evidence but I can look at the world and I can see there is more to it than what can be explained.
As wonderful as many scientific explanations are, many are still lacking. Gut feeling, and intuition, are important. If you don't know, what do you feel? If you ask God, The Goddess He/She will answer you. However, you must be able to ask with no pre-conceived ideas and no dogmatic leanings or biases. When you ask you must ask as a child, knowing nothing.
5. The Principle of Gender
This is actually the 7th principle. I am including it here because of the previous principle, polarity, and the controversy these days of the polarization of our political system and the firestorm surrounding gender ideology.
This is the principle of gender. It is a core hermitic belief that is immutable. "Gender is in everything; everything has its Masculine and Feminine Principles Gender; manifests on all planes." — The Kybalion.
This principle is not anti-gay, anti-trans, or anything else and I will try to explain it with the utmost sensitivity. This principle is about balance. As I view gender and its expression - gender in humans exists on a continuum.
There are those males and females who identify with the opposite gender of their sex. This is because of the aforementioned continuum. Some men or women feel more masculine or feminine than others. This has always been and will always be.
There are many factors these days that contribute to this feeling of unbalance, not an unbalanced mind or mental illnesses but a feeling that in spite of having certain parts one does not feel like the societal norm associated with those parts.
I think the most significant of these factors is the proliferation of microplastic in our food supply. Namely, the chemicals leached from plastic interfere with male fertility, and the production of testosterone during fetal development at the proper time as well as in the proper amounts for normal development.
This leads to feminization. This is a fact. A man who does not develop normally does not feel like a man. Period, end of discussion. I am sure the same occurs in the development of the female sex. This is not a fault on the part of the individuals affected. This is not a decision to be made or resisted. This is a real thing supported by real science. https://www.newscientist.com/article/dn7440-gender-bending-chemicals-found-to-feminise-boys/
To be clear, I am not "woke". I do not believe in gender fluidity or in surgical solutions like reassignment. I also cannot deny that not feeling like you belong is confusing and traumatic. I have experienced that as a result of my brain injury.
It took me a long time to get over the feelings of anger and confusion. It took a long time for me to just accept myself as I am without having to self medicate with drugs and alcohol. Self acceptance is not easy but changing the outside does not change the feelings on the inside.
Coming to terms with who you are on the inside and loving that person in spite of what the world thinks is the real solution and I sincerely hope that those who are feeling like a surgical solution will be the answer will reconsider. Walt Heyer has a compelling story - https://waltheyer.com/
I have seen those who have come to regret it and continue suffering and finding that they cannot reverse what they have done end up just as sad and troubled. Some even end their lives, which is heartbreaking. I have been there.
I tried psychiatry and medication but masking symptoms is also not a solution and does its own damage because of the terrible side effects of psychiatric medications and the irreversible consequences of hormone blockers and surgery. Helping people accept themselves is the true answer, not some radical surgical or chemical application that just covers the pain temporarily.
Man's disregard for the environment is destroying humanity with more than just climate change. Pollution has caused developmental issues, metabolic issues, and auto-immune issues.
How has Magick adapted to these changes? The development of Chaos Magick or the acceptance of the chaos man has caused in our environment throws the natural order out of balance so a new system developed that is group-oriented. Hermeticism is about balance in the individual.
Rather than finding strength in one's own individual identity as a traditional man or woman, the egregore has shifted from the idea of individual strength to group strength. We can see by the existence and power of cancel culture that is shift has real, tangible power, that of chaos magick. As you think so shall it be.
Chaos Magick is driven by an egregore, a group ideological identification that goes against the natural order. It is an adaptation to man's separation from the God (Goddess)/Science balance and reverence for the planet to an arrogant disregard of environmental safety for profit, which tells us there is no God, we are only accountable to ourselves.
The gender issue is not an issue for me. I am respectful of all people and pronouns because I understand this was forced upon humanity because humans are basically arrogant and stupid. I love all people, even the arrogant and stupid but we have to deal with and adapt to these very real changes in society caused by those who put money and political power over safety.
6. Making Magick Practical: The Principle of Rythm
THE PRINCIPLE OF RHYTHM. "Everything flows, out and in; everything has its tides; all things rise and fall; the pendulum swing manifests in everything; the measure of the swing to the right is the measure of the swing to the left; rhythm compensates." — The Kybalion.
The principle is about effort. The more effort you put into your magicak work, planning, gathering the materials you need like your ceremonial objects INCLUDING education, business licenses, products - you know - magick is not always supernatural - it works in the real world.
The more you educate yourself and practice your craft the more neuropathways you develop making what you do more efficient. The magick is in the craftsmanship (effort and attention to detail) - getting help when you need it, humility, not like a kid I met back in the 90's who said he was one of the most powerful wizards on the east coast??? really? He brought me a stone he said was possessed by a demon. I took it in my hand and mumbled some nonsense. Shook it and dropped it back into his hand. He gripped it tightly, scrunched his face in deep concentration and burst into a little dance, and said - you did it, it is cleared?
There is no fake it till you make it when you want success in anything. Your brain will help you, it is designed in the ways we have discussed but nothing is truly supernatural except that God created you in his/her image, a creator in your own right with the ability to set and intent, develop goals, temerity, persistence, and focus - a brain that develops new neuro pathways so you can make your own destiny with the application of critical thinking and the social skills to get others to help you - it is not always what you know but who you know, ya know?
I was a ceremonial magician for years thinking that I would see demons and jinns and all that other stuff. It never happened for me so I figured out that these creatures are metaphors, part of the coded language of the day, a narrative to fool the church and keep it from killing you during the times of persecutions like the Spanish Inquisition and The European and American Witch hunts.
What is a demon but the manifestation of your own dark desires that possess you causing you to be blinded to how your actions affect others in your pursuit of wealth and power? - they are an egregore - an Idea guided by a common purpose - others join and ad their resources and their efforts, they gather together like those who supported JE and GM.
They raise to power- have orgies - feeding their egos uniting in their goal to traffic humans and make bank. They worked to compromise political leaders and captains of industry and royalty. This is the ritualization of evil intent. So many, so much power, money, and influence. GM has, so far been a good girl, or is she just scared shitless she will end up like JE and not informed or we would see heads rolling.
A few were sacrificed then the story just drifted away. When have you ever seen any politician punished - look at the laptop from hell. Little fuck up Hunter will be sacrificed, the underlings like his buddy Bobalinsky and maybe a few others but will The Big Guy (whoever that is, wink wink) be named and implicated? probably not. This is the way of the world.
Will the pendulum swing in the other direction with a red wave? maybe but the right has not been any better when they have been in power. Look at after the collapse of the '70s, the '80s, 2008. We are not controlled by a totalitarian uni party. The Constitution is no longer respected or enforced. If you can't afford a lawyer a judge will just laugh at you. Talk about your rights and you are laughed at and scoffed at. Follow the Covid Gods, Trust the government, The FBI has been weaponized,
Seriously - when have we ever trusted the government to look out for us when there were billions to be made like Moderna - pre-Covid profits of 8 Billion post-Covid 800 billion. Follow the money.
The Tuskegee Experiments, Radiation Experiments, Look at the history of psychiatry, the closing of State hospitals for inhumane treatments, the abuse at schools like Willowbrook, and many others. Sending soldiers to wars for energy domination and propping up the petrodollar. Yes, they are looking out for you.
Maybe the swing back will not be what we think it might be. maybe rather than swing right-wing it will all just fall apart because it is so top-heavy and corrupt that there will be no solid principle to hold it together. It may all devolve into a civil war, a toppling of the fed under its own weight and we will end up with 50 little countries or a few regional territories vying for survival.
7. Making Magick Practical: The Principle of Cause and Effect.
"Every Cause has its Effect; every Effect has its Cause; everything happens according to Law; Chance is but a name for Law not recognized; there are many planes of causation, but nothing escapes the Law." — The Kybalion
If you have a positive attitude your life will be happier and healthier. If you have a negative attitude you will be more unhap[py and be less healthy. Scientific studies over the years have born this out. Look at depression. The hallmarks of the severely depressed are 1. Isolation and 2. Negative thinking patterns and ruminating on how bad their lives and the world are.
Even Jesus taught this. I know a lot in the magickal community have resentments against Christianity and The Bible but that is because men wrote it and men are the ones who used Jesus's story to create a religion from something that is the most beneficial thing you can do for the world - simply - To love your neighbor as yourself. People get sidetracked by religion and judge God and Jesus because men have justified their evil by invoking God.
Let us look at prayer and what we think it is - a petition to God to give you what you want. Janis Joplin and her line - "God, won't you give me a Mercedes Benz" Asking for what you do not have. This is the wrong way to pray. look at this and we will dissect it - For unto every one that hath shall be given, and he shall have abundance: but from him that hath not shall be taken away even that which he hath. Math 25:29
Remember from the first paragraph? The hallmarks of the severely depressed are 1. Isolation and 2. Negative thinking patterns and ruminating on how bad their lives and the world are. Then remember what has been scientifically verified - people who think positively have happier, healthier lives and people with negative attitudes are unhappier and unhealthier.
Let's look at that scripture again. Part 1 - For unto every one that hath (Positive Attitude) shall be given, and he shall have abundance: Part 2 but from him that hath not (Negative Attitude) shall be taken away even that which he hath. Math 25:29
When you are focussing on what you do not have and praying for God to give it to you - you don't get it because as you are thinking about what you do not have you are also thinking of why you do not have - The world is not fair, Resentments for rich people, Why do bad people prosper and good people go broke - God is not fair and more. You are orienting yourself to think negatively.
Now - let us look at the much-talked-about technique used by successful people - Visualization. "Seeing" yourself succeed helps you believe that it can – and will – happen. Visualization helps you "practice" success. When you imagine every step of an event or activity going well, you get your mind and body ready to take those steps in real life. Anyone can benefit from visualization. https://www.mindtools.com/pages/article/newHTE_81.htm#:~:text=%22Seeing%22%20yourself%20succeed%20helps%20you,Anyone%20can%20benefit%20from%20visualization.
Cause - Think negatively - Effect - poverty, poorer health, depression. Listen to the sadness and anger thof those who do not have what they want - what do you hear - and what do you hate most about rich, successful people? Look at them, they have so much and they always seem to get more - WHAT ABOUT ME? Negative Thinking is selfish and casts aspersions.
What do success coaches (who for some reason are always wealthy) tell you? - YOU CAN HAVE what you want all you have to do is think you can rather than convince yourself you can't. They are sharing their success and the method they use to get it then they tell you how you can have what they have. No blaming or what about me's - they are thinking of you and how you can make your life better.
So why not try it - Do not pray for what you do not have. use visualization. Many shamanistic cultures have done this all throughout history. The shamans were revered because they always seemed to be able to make things happen, which is how they remained the spiritual leaders.
Relax - Listen to some pleasant music - <maybe play a guided meditation or just visualize yourself living the exact kind of life you want to have. DO NOT think of possession or money or anything else - just visualize yourself living the lifestyle you want to live. Napolean Hill wrote one of the most popular books ever written - "Think and Grow Rich" and the book - "How to Stop Worrying and Start Living" by Dale Carnegie. What have I told you several times in these essays? As You Think - So Shall You Do.
