I’ve been reading like a mad fiend lately. There’s just so much to learn, so much to be exposed to...so much beyond what I now know.
In my work, I never ask anyone to believe a word I say, I simply ask those I serve to try things on and experiment for themselves. There is no substitute for first hand experience; you get to keep what you like and leave the rest.
I recently read The Power of Your Subconscious Mind by Joseph Murphy. It was written in 1963 so the language is charmingly dated. When I read a book like this I try to suspend all preconceived notions about the subject matter and just see what the author has to say. Then, if I want, I try it on.
I’m fascinated with the brain (both what’s known and unknown) so I’ve done a lot of study on the grey matter. Still, there was an important distinction in this book that significantly changed how I view the potential and operation of my subconscious mind (perhaps I’ll share it next week). I employed the techniques I read about and, sure enough, I’m in the middle of the best month I’ve ever had in my business, by far.
Things that make you go hmmm.
What I want to share with you today is about another passion of mine: Sleep. I love to sleep and have the coolest adventures each and every night. I’ve always wondered where we go when we sleep. The book quotes Dr John Bigelow, a noted sleep researcher of the time, saying the main reason we sleep is:
“The nobler part of the soul is united by abstraction to our higher nature and becomes a participant in the wisdom and foreknowledge of the gods.”
I picture a cord coming from me and plugging into the field of Universal Intelligence while I sleep. Frolicking with the Divine every night. What a concept!
I encourage you to ask yourself the following:
- What if this is true?
- What would it mean?
- What would that change, if anything, about the way I view my life and potential?
