You might think this email is some sort of set-up prior to Halloween, especially since the first in this series, which I’ll be covering over the next couple weeks is entitled: The 6 Ghosts of Fear.
Others I have planned cover much more on the ghoulish side of things, so you absolutely MUST tune in … unless you want that sort of thing operating in your life. And if that’s the case, you might as well stop reading now and move on as you will not benefit from anything else in the article, much less the others.
Truth is, I’m writing to you today to discuss FEAR, and how it controls, paralyzes and prevents us from doing what is most beneficial to our success and happiness.
In Napoleon Hill’s first book, “Laws of Success,” he wrote about the six basic fears of the human race, namely:
Fear of Poverty
Fear of Ill Health
Fear of Old Age
Fear of Criticism
Fear of Loss of Love
Fear of Death
In his book “Think and Grow Rich,” Hill refers to them as “ghosts” – giving them a form and context that frankly, some people are uncomfortable with. Even so, Hill must not have cared, as he deliberately used the term,
In other writings as well as lectures and seminars, Hill went even further, making mention of “invisible counselors,” his spirit guide, “Norm Hill,” who helped him find parking places when there weren’t any – as well as the positive angels and spirits whom he invoked each day for protection, healing of body and mind, and so on.
In Laws of Success, Hill wrote that all OTHER fears fit under one of the six basic “ghost” categories, then adds, “Every human being who has reached the age of understanding, is bound down, to some extent, by one or more of these six basic fears.”
These six basic fears are referred to as “EVIL” by Hill, and they must be conquered if you are going to lead a successful life.
Now, being that Hill’s books went into circulation in the 1920’s and 30’s – and are still widely read today, you’d think that these six ghosts would be conquered, but this is most certainly not the case, mostly because many people don’t read self-help books – and those who do may not believe that these six ghosts are a HUGE problem.
Going a bit further, many people may think that the word “ghost” was used flippantly by Hill. I doubt that is the case, and friends of mine who are clairvoyant would most certainly echo the same refrain.
Whether you believe in ghosts is a personal choice. Personally, I care not whether a person believes or doesn’t. But I do care about whether a person is being BLOCKED from success and happiness because of invisible (to most) forces that drag you down and prevent you from moving forward.
And this, my friend, is the “Dark Side of Self-Help.” You’re trying to make your life better. You’re trying to move up the ladder. You’re trying to be positive, to do the right thing – but you truly feel like you can’t. Deep down you can sense there is a blockage, but you don’t see it, and if you did, you wouldn’t have a clue as to how to get rid of it.
This blockage represents why other people can visualize, affirm and get what they want – sometimes almost instantly – while all you get from your attempts are more misery.
There are those who practice Theatre of the Mind and seemingly miraculous things happen. Then there are others who want to picture a goal, but all they see is darkness. Or when they’re picturing what they want, “interference” enters the image and disturbs them.
Then there are others who know how much Theatre of the Mind helps them – when they do it – but that’s the problem (or is it?), I can’t get myself to do what I know is beneficial.
Here’s what I can tell you now, and I’ll be brief: All thoughts that are emotionalized do not stay put. They travel. Positive thoughts that are mixed with positive emotion go out into the Universe and begin bringing what you want toward you as you move toward it.
Likewise, positive thoughts that are mixed with non-positive emotions like FEAR, go out into the Universe and bring more of what you fear. This is why Napoleon Hill said to NEVER pray for something while in the mental state of fear. Hmmm.
Okay, here’s something else to consider, that I’ll cover in detail at THE FLOW II in November: the fears you experience go into your energy field and hang out. And they stay there, blocking you from moving forward.
Not only that, if you accepted other peoples’ fears as fact, you’ve got their junk in your field, too. And because their emotionalized fears are now in your field, you think their thoughts are yours.
This is why one of the single most important parts of self-help should be “cleaning your field” of negative energies. But how do you do that? Moreover, how do you keep it clean once it’s been purged of all the junk?
Again, this is something you can count on learning at THE FLOW II, this November in Clearwater, Florida.
In order to get you FLOWING, the energetic “ghosts” have to be cleared from your field. Once this is done, you’re now in position to use visualization and other mind-body tools better than ever before. And they’ll work so fast for you that you’ll be stunned.
So you have a choice, remove the ghosts of fear, and the other ghoulish things I’ll be writing to you about in the coming weeks – and get into FLOW – or stay stuck and forever bewildered as to why.
