by Dr. Joseph Murphy, New York: Prentice Hall, 1966, quotes and prayers selected by Dr. Peter Fritz Walter.
This is the forth book published by the young Joseph Murphy, in 1966, after his bestselling first book ‘The Power of Your Subconscious Mind’ and the next two, ‘Miracle of Mind Dynamics’ and ‘The Amazing Laws of Cosmic Mind Power.’
While I have read all of Murphy’s books, the present one is the least conceptual and the most practical one of them. In fact, most of the book consists of stories taken from daily life and the author’s travels and lecturing tours, and his many encounters with people who became his clients or enjoyed free consulting.
The advice the author gives to all those people is always to the point, first diagnosing the ‘problem’ which in most cases is negative thought, resentment, feelings of hatred or revenge or other ‘mental poisons,’ the author then spontaneously hands out a prayer, which can be extremely short or consisting of two or three full sentences, and gives a recommendation how to do the prayers.
Dr. Murphy did this ministry always with a pure mind and an astonishing generosity. The cure, then, comes from inside out, it’s a process that takes place in the mind of the beholder, the person himself or herself who applies the prayer technique for self-healing or ‘healing’ their financial situation (which amounts to the same in most cases).
This book is inspirational in the true sense for it leaves out the conceptual approach and focuses entirely upon the power of right thinking. In this same sense, some of those the author met already possessed the knowledge and applied the wisdom of right prayer, and just reported the often miraculous results to the author who always carefully takes note ‘for the record’ and joyfully acknowledges when other people spontaneously found the same truth, and shared it with others.
—I am ever grateful for God’s riches that are ever active, ever present, unchanging, and eternal. /22
—God’s wealth is circulating in my life. His wealth flows to me in avalanches of abundance, and I give thanks for my good now and for all of God’s riches. /25
—I know that my good exists this very moment. I believe in my heart that I can prophesy for myself harmony, health, peace, and joy. I enthrone the concept of peace, success, and prosperity in my mind now. I know and believe these thoughts (seeds) will grow and manifest themselves in my experience. I am the gardener; as I sow so shall I reap. I sow God-like thoughts (seeds); these wonderful seeds are peace, success, harmony, and goodwill. It is a wonderful harvest. /77-78
—From this moment forward I am depositing in my subconscious mind seeds or thoughts of peace, confidence, poise, prosperity and balance. I am drawing out the fruits of the wonderful seeds I am depositing. I believe and accept the fact that my desire is a seed deposited in the subconscious. I make it real by feeling the reality of it. /78
—God’s love fills my soul, and I radiate love and goodwill to all those around me and to all people everywhere. God’s love flows through me as harmony, love, companionship, wealth, and true expression. God is my shepherd, and I shall never want for money, love, beauty, or companionship. God answers me now and I give thanks. /87-88
—I release this money freely, and God multiplies it exceedingly. /89
—God is my invariable source of supply, meeting instantly all my needs, and His riches flow to me ceaselessly, tirelessly, and endlessly. /90
—The limitless riches of God are flowing to me as fast as I can receive and use them, and every other man gets richer day by day. /98
—I recognize the eternal source of all riches which never fails. I am Divinely guided in all my ways, and I adapt myself to all new ideas. Infinite Intelligence is constantly revealing to me better ways to serve my fellow man. I am guided and directed to create products that will bless and help humanity. I attract men and women who are spiritual, loyal, faithful, and talented, and who contribute to the peace, prosperity, and progress of our business. I am an irresistible magnet and attract fabulous wealth by giving the best possible quality of products and services. I am constantly in tune with the Infinite and the substance of wealth. Infinite Intelligence governs all my plans and purposes, and I predicate all my success on the truth that God leads, guides, and governs me in all my undertakings. I am at peace inwardly and outwardly at all times. I am a tremendous success. I am one with God, and God is always successful. I must succeed. I am succeeding now. I grasp the essentials of all details of my business. I radiate love and goodwill to all those around me and to all my employees. I fill my mind and heart with God’s love, power, and energy. All those connected with me are spiritual links in my growth, welfare, and prosperity. I give all honor and glory to God. /99-100
—I am aware that there is a perfect law of supply and demand. I practice the golden rule in all my affairs. I am at peace. Whatever I wish to sell is an idea in the Mind of God. The principle of all knowledge is within me. I know everything that I need instantly. I recognize whatever I wish to buy or sell represents an exchange of ideas in Divine Mind within me. I know that there are mutual satisfaction, harmony, and peace. The price is right; the people are right; all is in perfect order. I know the Truth; I understand the Truth; and I am the consciousness of God in action. All the ideas I need constantly unfold within me with perfect sequence and perfect combinations. I receive and rejoice in Divine ideas, and I give them to my fellow creatures; I receive ideas in exchange. Peace is mine now. There is no delay in Divine Mind; I accept my good. /100-101
—I know that all men are my brothers; all of us have a common Father. I wish for everyone health, happiness, abundance, and all the blessings and riches of life. I mean this; I am sincere. I know that what I wish for the other, I also wish for myself, and as I bless the other I am blessing myself. The love of God flows through me to all mankind. I bless all who are richer than I, and I bless those who criticize and speak ill of me. I rejoice to see all my co-workers succeed and prosper. I open the windows of my mind, and I let in the riches of Heaven. I am loving toward all. I pray that God’s riches flood the mind and heart of all. I give thanks for His riches now. It is wonderful. /103
—God reveals to me better ways to present the truths of God to my fellow man. /124
—My business or profession is full of right action and right expression. The ideas, money, merchandise, and contacts that I need are mine now and at all times. All these things are irresistibly attracted to me by the law of universal attraction. God is the life of my business; I am Divinely guided and inspired in all ways. Every day I am presented with wonderful opportunities to grow, expand, and progress. I am building up goodwill. I am a great success, because I do business with others as I would have them do it with me. /127
—The law of increase is inevitable, and my mind is constantly open to a bountiful increase. My business grows, expands, and unfolds in a wonderful way, and my finances are always multiplied exceedingly. I am richly and abundantly supplied within and without from the infinite storehouse within me. I open my mind and my heart to the abundance and riches of God, and I am increasingly rich within and without. /137
—Divine intelligence leads and guides me to my right work, which I perform in a perfect way for a wonderful income. /148
—The first principle in the art of becoming rich is to realize that thought is the only intangible power which can produce tangible riches from the storehouse of the Infinite. /38
—You live in a thought world, and in order to become rich and to solve your financial problems you must continuously dwell on thoughts of wealth, prosperity, and success. /38
—In your mind, continue to imagine that you are a distribution center, that you possess all sorts of riches and that you are bestowing these blessings on others. As you do this, you are opening the way for still greater supplies to flow in. /41
—Your vision or mental estimate of yourself activates your subconscious mind and compels you to be all that you imagine yourself to be. The law of your subconscious is compulsion. Get a bright new estimate of yourself. Your new concept will gain you new contacts, promotion, and untold wealth. /55
—When you mentally wish to withhold wealth from another, you also automatically withhold it from yourself. This is why the golden rule tells you to think, speak, and act well toward your neighbor; and never indulge in hate, resentment, or carping criticism for the simple reason that you are the only thinker in your universe, and your negative thoughts set up negative reactions in all departments of your life. Your subconscious mind is always fabricating and projecting on the screen of space the totality of your stream of thought-life. /76
—Love what you are doing now, i.e., do the best you can where you are. Be cordial, kind, affable, and full of goodwill. Think big and think of riches, and your present work will simply be a stepping stone to your triumph. Be conscious of your true worth, and claim riches in your mind and claim riches for every single person you meet during the day, whether it be your boss, an associate, a foreman, a customer, or a friend—all those around you. You will feel your radiation of riches and advancement, and Infinite Intelligence will very soon open up a new door of opportunity for you. /136-137
