As I type these words, people in Paris are traumatized by the recent surprise attacks on them, and worried about family, friends, and their future well-being.
While the world is still reeling from the effects of war, many are now bracing for something that could be worse.
As I overhear all of this, I hear an underlying victim mentality.
We’re victims of storms.
We’re victims of attacks.
We’re victims of a poorly run government.
We’re victims of gas prices, gas shortages, inflation, recession, taxes, wars, and more.
I’m going to say something unusual.
It may upset some people.
I’m hoping it will inspire you.
You have more power than you think.
While you may not want to stand in the path of war, you don’t have to cower under the bed, either.
As odd as it may sound, I believe that if enough of us think positive, we can create a counter storm of sorts.
We can protect ourselves and our loved ones with our thoughts.
I’ve described and proved this with the research in the back of my book, The Attractor Factor.
More than nineteen studies *proved* that when a large group of people hold positive intentions, those intentions radiate out and become reality.
I asked my readers to help stop Hurricane Rita almost ten years ago.
I asked my readers to help stop the Texas wildfires several years ago.
The fires stopped.
I asked my readers to help my dying mother several years ago.
My mother is still with us.
Together, we can do something about Paris, too.
I’m not saying ignore current reality.
I’m asking you to create a better reality.
I’m saying don’t get caught up in fear.
I’m asking you to come from faith.
Look. If you think an attack will get you or a loved one, then it’s already gotten you.
You’re living in fear.
Your life is dark, gloomy and in a cage.
The media is flawless at whipping us into fear.
So I suggest ignoring the mainstream media.
It’s not information, it’s propaganda.
That’s why it’s called “programming.”
It gets large groups of people to think negative, which of course then becomes reality.
Why can’t we do the opposite?
Why can’t we get large groups of people to think positive?
Yes, be sure to travel safely and wisely.
Yes, be sure you take care of yourself and your family.
Yes, contribute to any causes you believe in that help people who need it right now.
But also check the storehouse in your mind.
Are you living in fear, or living in trust?
Are you coming from fear, or faith?
Are you focused on the negative, or are you doing something to create a positive?
We are always at choice.
My plea is that the readers of this blog — you — will stop, breathe, and focus on love; pray, or in some positive way send out an energy that will help dissolve the fear in and around us.
I’m asking you to do this today.
As I was writing this, I was reminded of the famous Paradoxical Commandments written by Dr. Kent M. Keith.
They go like this –
“People are illogical, unreasonable, and self-centered.
Love them anyway.
“If you do good, people will accuse you of selfish ulterior motives.
Do good anyway.
“If you are successful, you will win false friends and true enemies.
“The good you do today will be forgotten tomorrow.
Do good anyway.
“Honesty and frankness make you vulnerable.
Be honest and frank anyway.
“The biggest men and women with the biggest ideas can be shot down by the smallest men and women with the smallest minds.
Think big anyway.
“People favor underdogs but follow only top dogs.
Fight for a few underdogs anyway.
“What you spend years building may be destroyed overnight.
“People really need help but may attack you if you do help them.
Help people anyway.
“Give the world the best you have and you’ll get kicked in the teeth.
Give the world the best you have anyway.”
I know you may feel that thinking positive may be a waste of time.
Do it anyway.
I know you may feel that your efforts are insignificant.
Do it anyway.
I know you may wonder if group meditation will really work.
Do it anyway.
I know you may doubt if prayer will help.
Do it anyway.
Let’s create the positive future we want right now.
Let’s focus on spirit.
Let’s focus on love.
What I’m asking you to do is be happy, right now.
Send that loving energy out, in the direction of Paris.
Intend for all to be well, for, in reality, from a spiritual view of life, all is well.
We can make a difference.
It begins with you.
Will you join me?

They never seem to realize that their request reveals their limiting beliefs about money.
Or that their limiting beliefs are the very reason they are struggling and wanting everything given to them.
After all, when I offer a program such as The Zero Point, and I put a price on it, it’s because it wasn’t free for me to make it.
The reality is –
People involved want paid.
Audio engineers want paid.
Graphic artists want paid.
Credit card merchants want paid.
Manufacturers want paid.
Warehouse wants paid.
Shippers want paid.
My staff wants paid.
And why do they want paid?
For the same reason you do.
Because they have their own bills, too.
So is it really reasonable to ask for a program like http://www.thezeropoint.info to be sent to you for nothing in return?
Does that make any sense?
Is that fair?
Plus, most people don’t value what is given to them as a handout.
I give away my book Attract Money Now at http://www.attractmoneynow.com
Have you read it?
Have you implemented the seven steps in it?
I also give away all three volumes of The Miracles Manual http://www.miraclesmanual.com
Did you get them?
Did you read them?
Did you implement what you read?
Tell the truth.
If you are serious about making a difference in your life, then stop asking for freebies and invest in your own awakening.

When I attended my fourth transformation camp with legendary Body-for-Life fitness icon Bill Phillips, I briefly told the group (at Bill’s invitation) about the power of “I AM.”
Afterward, Bill told me, “We could do an entire seminar on just ‘I AM’.”
Here’s why Bill is right:
Anything you say after the words “I AM” creates your future.
You can say, “I AM broke” and your mind will create that reality.
You can say “I AM alone” and your mind will mirror that affirmation, too.
You can say “I AM ill” and your mind will manufacture a life to reflect your statement.
You might think that you are simply speaking what you are observing, but in reality you have created your current reality by your previous “I AM” thoughts, and your current “I AM” observations are creating the future you are about to experience.
This will get clear in a moment.
By the same token, you can take the same two words and attract something positive.
“I AM wealthy” will begin to create a life that attracts wealth.
“I AM loved” will begin to attract a life where you are loving and loved.
“I AM healthy” will begin to morph your body into one of health and fitness.
In other words, your new statements of “I AM” will begin to attract and create a life that will match it.
At first it might feel awkward, or even a lie, to say “I AM wealthy” when you don’t yet see wealth, but it’s those previous “I AM” observations about lack that created the current lack.
Stick with me.
This technique can transform your life forever.
Why do these two simple words have so much power?
Neville Goddard, one of my favorite mystical teachers, wrote:
“I AM wealthy, poor, healthy, sick, free, confined were first of all impressions or conditions felt before they became visible expressions. Your world is your consciousness objectified. Waste no time trying to change the outside; change the within or the impression; and the without or expression will take care of itself. When the truth of this statement dawns upon you, you will know that you have found the lost word or the key to every door. I AM (your consciousness) is the magical lost word which was made flesh in the likeness of that which you are conscious of being.” ― Neville Goddard, Your Faith is Your Fortune
In other words, you have already been practicing this technique of reality creation.
Whenever you said or thought, “I AM losing” or “I AM struggling” or “I AM not popular,” you were creating your own reality, not just observing it, albeit unconsciously.
All of your self negations, or statements of negativity, or lack, were actually attracting the very life you were complaining about.
It probably felt like you were just commenting on “what is” but in reality you were affirming what will be.
Neville also wrote —
“Chance or accident is not responsible for the things that happen to you, nor is predestined fate the author of your fortune or misfortune. Your subconscious impressions determine the conditions of your world. The subconscious is not selective; it is impersonal and no respecter of persons. The subconscious is not concerned with the truth or falsity of your feeling. It always accepts as true that which you feel to be true. Feeling is the assent of the subconscious to the truth of that which is declared to be true. Because of this quality of the subconscious there is nothing impossible to man. Whatever the mind of man can conceive and feel as true, the subconscious can and must objectify. Your feelings create the pattern from which your world is fashioned, and a change of feeling is a change of pattern.” ― Neville Goddard, Resurrection
The secret to creating a new reality is in first noticing what you are saying right now after “I AM” and then noticing how you are feeling.
If you don’t like either, you can change them.
As Neville pointed out, your subconscious/unconscious will ignore the outer and focus on the inner: your predominant thoughts and feelings.
It will then go about creating a mirror to what you are doing inside yourself.
Obviously, it would be wise to start speaking what you prefer and feeling it as already real.
Instead of letting your thoughts and spoken words be about what you don’t want, think and speak what you do want, and feel as though it is already real right now.
Speak as if what you desire is here: “I AM happy” versus “I WANT to be happy.”
The first phrase will begin to attract that reality now; the second phrase pushes it off in the distance and leaves you in a state of “want.”
You don’t want to want; you want to be right now.
As Neville said –
“Dare to believe in the reality of your assumption and watch the world play its part relative to its fulfillment.” ― Neville Goddard
The power of “I AM” is not new.
Every great New Thought teacher from Joseph Murphy, Walter C. Lanyon, Walter Devoe, Lillian DeWaters, Emmet Fox, Ella Wheeler, Christian D Larson, Edna Lister, Wayne Dyer, Joel Osteen, Oprah, and Thomas Troward have written or spoken about it.
What might be new is actually using it with conscious intent.
The other day, when I went into my gym for an upper body weight lifting session that I had learned from Bill Phillips, I told myself “I AM strong!” and “I AM a strongman who can lift more than ever!”
Those two words helped me have one of the most intense workout sessions of recent memory.
They triggered an inner strength that attracted an outer strength.
And all I did was leverage the two most powerful words of all time: “I AM!”
I AM confident you will love it. 🙂
Thank you for your prayers for the residents of my city, Wimberley, Texas, which was hit by catastrophic flooding and made the front page of the mainstream news all around the world.
The storms have stopped, the flood is over, the rain has gone, and people are rebuilding.
While people are still in shock, they are also moving onwards.
You can’t stop the human spirit.
When I asked you to hold benevolent intentions in my recent blog post, I also invited you to use The Secret Prayer, which is recorded by me and available to hear for free at The Secret Prayer website.

After all, what if it really works?
The audio of the book, read by me, is here: http://www.audible.com/pd/Self-Development/The-Secret-Prayer-Audiobook/B00XWDOBCA/
PS — Here’s an excerpt from the introduction to The Secret Prayer:
According to The Psychology of Prayer, 97% of all Americans pray at least once a week. Even atheists admit that they sometimes pray.
But as we all know, it doesn’t always seem to work.
What’s the secret to having a prayer deliver?
That’s what you’ll discover in The Secret Prayer, where I reveal the three-step formula for attracting miracles through this particular prayer. And I’m talking about anything and everything you could name as a “miracle.”
When you think about it, what is impossible?
Since we’re talking about enlisting the help of “Something” greater than you, what could be impossible to attract?
Unless you’re trying to bend or break the laws of physics, or have an unreal fantasy such as riding a unicorn around the sun, can’t you have, do, or be anything you can imagine? Aren’t the only limits the ones you believe in? Aren’t your beliefs open to inspection and change?
I also want to face reality here. Many “new agey” people claim, “It’s all good.” While everything is all good from a Divine perspective, from a physical perspective, we have work to do.
There are plenty of problems in the world. There are people suffering and starving. You may know some of them. You may be one of them. Dismissing the problems and challenges of life is a form of denial and self-sabotage. You have to be honest and note the issues before us.
And you want to look beyond the issues to Source. When you focus on the peace behind the problem, you begin to clean up the perceptions creating and attracting the problem.
This is why The Secret Prayer is so helpful. It assists you in reconnecting with the essence of life, the Divinity of life, the Source of life. The more you can allow prayer to bring you home, the faster you will nullify the causes of the separation. And then you can see the miracle of right now.
It’s worth revealing how I came across The Secret Prayer. You may know me from my books, audios, and movie appearances. You may consider me an inspiration, since I write self-help books, or a huckster, since I sell self-help books. You may like my methods or think they are simply mental diversions from living a life of hard work and struggle.
What you may not know is that I am a seeker like you, and have been since the 1960s, when I was a teenager. Others looked for outside thrills; I looked for inside awakenings. I wanted to know how the world worked, and I wanted to teach it to others. As I discovered new things—such as Ho’oponopono—I would share them in books, such as Zero Limits and At Zero. I simply regarded myself as a scout looking for gold. Whenever I found it, I shared it. I still do that today.
A decade or so ago, I earned one of my doctorates by completing a dissertation on New Thought healers and how they use prayer and “mind treatment” to help people. I found it fascinating but didn’t do anything with it.
Then, after the movie The Secret made the Law of Attraction mainstream, and made me internationally famous, I wondered how the law blended with prayer. Others wondered, too. People would ask me if I believed in God, or if the Law of Attraction replaced God, and so forth. It made me curious about how we use prayer—if we used it all—to align ourselves with God—or whatever we call The Great Something—to have, do, or be whatever we imagine.
Was that even possible?
As usual, I continued my research and meditating. I was led to rereading the books of Emmet Fox, an author I’ve always loved. His “mental equivalent” went a long way in helping me realize that everything begins with vivid thought.
Rereading Wallace Wattles’s famous book, Financial Success through Creative Thought, or, as it is better known by its subtitle, The Science of Getting Rich, reminded me that everything comes out of some great energy vortex, and we call it forth with thought and action.
Reading the letters of Brother Lawrence, the beloved monk of the 1600s who taught us to “practice the presence of God,” meaning to spend every moment looking for, feeling, and loving the Source, helped me realize the power behind all manifestation was this Divine “Something.”
And then one day I had an “aha!” experience.
In some of my books, such as The Awakening Course, I explain that we can have peeks into All That Is, and those glimpses are called satori experiences in some cultures. I had such an awakening. Somehow the blend of prayer and Law of Attraction merged together into a new formula; a synthesis of ideas that created a powerhouse new system for attracting virtually anything.
I became as excited as if I had been hit by lightning or the heavens opened and some Great Being had spoken to me directly. This new prayer was powerful. It is powerful. I put up an audio of me leading people through The Secret Prayer on www.TheSecretPrayer.com. Instantly, thousands of people went to it, used it, and began to rave about it.
Will it work for you, too?
How can I say that?
When you realize that you are already a manifester and are already living a miracle for which you are grateful (the first step in the formula), then you can stop there. You already attracted something incredible. But add the next two steps—detached request and inspired action—and your further results are virtually guaranteed.
I’m calling it a “secret” prayer because your prayer should be between you and your inner connection to “All That Is.” I’ve learned that sharing your prayers with others could weaken their power. Rather than invite doubt or negativity, keep your prayer to yourself. Let it be a “secret” between you and Divinity.

Over the last ten years I have sometimes asked for your help.
Whether when a hurricane was about to hit, or wildfires were out of control, or a friend was dying, I would ask you to hold the intention for peace, love and a benevolent outcome.
Every time, your prayers clearly helped.
That’s why I’m writing to you today.
My city of Wimberley, Texas was devastated by the catastrophic flooding that hit us the other night.
The mainstream news will show you the graphic photos and tell you the sad stories.
They are all real.
But I want to remind you that your own intention, and prayer, are real, too, and powerful.
One thing you can do to help is pray for those in Wimberley.
But don’t pray out of sadness or fear;
pray out of faith and love.
Just take a breath, relax, and mentally send love, peace and healing to the area.
If you want, you can use The Secret Prayer that I was inspired to create.
You can hear the special prayer, and follow along as I lead you through it, at —
Just go there and scroll down to where the audio is listed.
When times get tough, many turn to the unseen for help.
Even atheists do it.
But desperation and begging are the wrong ways to go into praying.
They are low vibrations that cause the Law of Attraction to bring more to be desperate about.
Instead, focus on a higher vibration, like love, health, healing, peace, gratitude; and let the Law of Attraction bring more of those qualities.
Let’s send love to Texas.
Will you help?
