Acting As If You Have Already Received It
Do you really have to pretend and feel as if you already have it all the time? Or can you take a break from it, and continue again? Or just have the faith of it coming and pretend occasionally?
In the Master Key System, Charles Haanel tells us to, “Live the spirit of these things until they become yours by right. It will then become impossible to keep them from you.” Which I believe sums up exactly what you need to do to attain anything.
Here’s an extract from the Master Key System, which will explain the importance of thought.”That much gathers more is true on every plane of existence and that loss leads to greater loss is equally true.
Mind is creative, and conditions, environment and all experiences in life are the result of our habitual or predominant mental attitude.
The attitude of mind necessarily depends upon what we think. Therefore, the secret of all power, all achievement and all possession depends upon our method of thinking.
This is true because we must "be" before we can "do," and we can "do" only to the extent which we "are," and what we "are" depends upon what we "think."
We cannot express powers that we do not possess. The only way by which we may secure possession of power is to become conscious of power, and we can never become conscious of power until we learn that all power is from within.
There is a world within – a world of thought and feeling and power; of light and life and beauty and, although invisible, its forces are mighty.
The world within is governed by mind. When we discover this world we shall find the solution for every problem, the cause for every effect; and since the world within is subject to our control, all laws of power and possession are also within our control.
The world without is a reflection of the world within. What appears without is what has been found within. In the world within may be found infinite Wisdom, infinite Power, infinite Supply of all that is necessary, waiting for unfoldment, development and expression. If we recognize these potentialities in the world within they will take form in the world without.
Harmony in the world within will be reflected in the world without
by harmonious conditions, agreeable surroundings, the best of everything. It is the foundation of health and a necessary essential to all greatness, all power, all attainment, all achievement and all success.
Harmony in the world within means the ability to control our thoughts, and to determine for ourselves how any experience is to affect us.
Harmony in the world within results in optimism and affluence; affluence within results in affluence without.
The world without reflects the circumstances and the conditions of the consciousness within.
If we find wisdom in the world within, we shall have the understanding to discern the marvellous possibilities that are latent in this world within, and we shall be given the power to make these possibilities manifest in the world without.
As we become conscious of the wisdom in the world within, we mentally take possession of this wisdom, and by taking mental possession we come into actual possession of the power and wisdom necessary to bring into manifestation the essentials necessary for our most complete and harmonious development.
The world within is the practical world in which the men and women of power generate courage, hope, enthusiasm, confidence, trust and faith, by which they are given the fine intelligence to see the vision and the practical skill to make the vision real.
Life is an unfoldment, not accretion. What comes to us in the world without is what we already possess in the world within.
All possession is based on consciousness. All gain is the result of an accumulative consciousness. All loss is the result of a scattering consciousness.”
So to your question, “Do you really have to pretend and feel as if you already have it all the time?”
Indeed you do, or at least you keep pretending, visualizing and imagining, all that you wish to attain. You do this with emotion, with feelings, with excitement and with anticipation.
You do this often, you do it regularly and consistently, until it almost feels impossible to tell the pretending and the reality apart.
That is living the spirit of the thing you want, you become it and it becomes you, and all that is left is excited anticipation of the manifestation of what you are.Law-of-Attraction-Guide.com
