One of the books that has been an important part of my life, shaping many of my thinking and planning processes was Bob Proctor's book, "You were Born Rich". The following is inspired by this book and includes direct quotes.
Dr. Wernher Von Braun, whom many consider the "father" of the space program, was once quoted as saying "...I just can't envision this whole universe coming together without something like divine will. The natural laws of the universe are so precise that we have no difficulty building a spaceship to the moon and can time the flight with the precision of a fraction of a second."
Obviously, he possessed a tremendous understanding of the laws of the universe and he understood just how consistent and precise those laws are. One of those laws is the Law of Attraction and it is through this law that we will attract to ourselves the people, the ideas and the things we need in order to achieve our goals.
In order to understand how this law works, we need to realize that everything in this universe is in a constant state of vibration. The human body is one of the most efficient electrical instruments in the entire universe. This is nothing new, since for many years, we have been reading the electrical impulses of the brain (an EEG) as well as of the heart (an ECG). In fact the brain is really a vibratory instrument.
We have all heard people talk about vibrations, but the vast majority of people are not aware of the connection between their vibrations and their results in life. It's very common to see people with "bad vibes" trying very hard to get good results, while at the same time, their negative vibrations are drawing to them all manner of negative people and situations.
The good news is that any time that we find ourselves in a negative mind frame we can CHANGE these vibrations.
Bob Proctor, in his book "Born Rich" uses an acorn as a graphic example of how the law of attraction works. He tells us to visualize this acorn and understand that it, like anything else that appears solid, is really a mass of molecules at a very high speed of vibration. Within the acorn is the nucleus or patterned plan which dictates the vibratory rate and also governs the end-product into which it will grow.
As soon as the acorn is planted, the patterned plan sets up an attractive force and begins to attract everything that vibrates in harmony with it. It attracts all the necessary particles of energy from the ground and they begin to join up and grow. As it expands, little shoots grow out of the bottom, forming roots. Also they begin to grow upward, finally breaking through the earth. These top shoots then begin attracting molecules from the atmosphere, continuing the growth until one day, it becomes an oak tree.
Unlike the human creature, the acorn does not have the ability to change its vibratory rate. It therefore can only grow into what it has been programmed to become - namely, an oak tree. But you and I have the ability to change our vibratory rate and therefore we can choose our own programming. The goal or image that you plant into your wonderful mind by constantly dwelling upon it is the patterned plan or nucleus which determines what you will grow into. It determines what you will attract to you and what you will repel.
As Bob Proctor says, "This is an orderly universe; nothing happens by accident. The images which you plant in your marvelous mind instantly sets up an attractive force which governs your results in life.... It's up to you to get into harmony with what you want out of life rather than what you don't want.
Clearly, you'll never get into harmony with prosperity if you insist on holding images of lack and limitation. Since you're always magnetized towards something, it follows it can never be anyone else's fault when something comes into your life which you supposedly do not want. Understand, you have ordered it, and it is being delivered to you, right on schedule."
So program your mind with worthy goals and ideals; weed, feed and attend to those seeds and you'll see them grow into YOUR FUTURE.
