Notes & Interpretations by Noah, 2022
WORDS & THOUGHTS BECOME REALITY
Giving and receiving – anything said returns
1. The Subconscious Mind
Power to manifest any thought regardless of its nature (good or bad), in extreme
detail. It doesn’t understand the difference between a joke and a desire, a fear and a
desire. Like electricity, must be handled carefully. Everything is registered.
2. The Conscious Mind
Human mind that sees life as it appears to be – sickness, limitation, death, etc.
3. The Superconscious Mind
The God Mind in the human. Realm of perfect ideas, perfect pattern “Divine
Design”, it knows how to give you the perfect life. All desire already perfectly true in
Divine Mind/superconscious mind.
*When the subconscious and superconscious minds are merged (and the
Conscious Mind turned off), God and man are one.
Do not manifest a specific person, manifest the “right person, the divine selection”.
The Law of Substitution – if not the person/thing you want, it is substituted for
something equivalent or better (the Divine Selection)
Be careful to joke and say things you do not mean, because these things too will
Follow intuition, never violate a hunch (regardless of the reasoning mind’s
“God Within/Superconsciousness, open the way for great abundance. I am an
irresistible magnet for all that belongs to me by divine right.”
Fear must be erased from consciousness to manifest every desire instantly.
“I now smash and demolish by my spoken word, every untrue record in my
subconscious mind. They shall return to the dust-heap of their native nothingness, for
they came from my own vain imaginings. I now make my perfect records through the
God within, the records health, wealth, love and perfect self-expression.”
You must act your perfect faith. Take things day by day, act your faith by preparing
for the manifestation unconditionally. If waiting for money, act rich, order something
“God within is never too late. I give thanks that [x is true].”
If you ask for success and prepare for failure, you will get the result you prepared for.
“God within, open the way for the right apartment.”
There’s a supply for every demand.
Be undisturbed by the external, stick to faith.
Help each other keep faith – ask another person to help you be faithful.
Your words make laws in reality. Be careful, say right words.
You cannot use “lucky objects” to manifest, because the Spiritual Law is the highest,
God is the only power.
Face your fears, because there is only good, not evil. The release of fear itself
(nonresistance) – the willingness to face the fear – usually means the event itself no
longer needs to be faced (disappears from reality). The Law of Nonresistance.
All disease has a mental reason. Usually un-forgiveness towards someone or anger.
Forgive that person and send love. The Law of Love. The Law of Forgiveness.
Food is never poisonous, you poison it with the mind.
If you bless a man, that man cannot hurt you. (Not even psychically.) Their weapon is
Children who are too young to think get sick because of their parents’ imagination
Some people are born in hostile environments, because of reincarnation; they did not
have good thoughts in the earlier life. The Law of Reincarnation. Only by knowing
the Spiritual Law can eternal life be achieved, and the reincarnation cycle stopped.
Karma is when you wish something bad upon another and it comes back to you.
Thoughts are boomerangs.
See even failures as successes, do not admit a failure, deny it and transmute it into
“Every man is a golden link in the chain of my good.”
It is never for the conscious mind to deal with a burden, cast it onto God within. “I
cast my burden onto God within and I go free.” This should be repeated over and
over intensely, sometimes for hours. Repeating an affirmation (sustaining its sound
wave internally or audibly) overrides the conscious mind for the duration of its
Do not live in the past. Forget the past. Bless the future. Live fully in the now.
Begin the day with right words, affirm immediately upon waking up.
“I give thanks for this day; miracle shall follow miracle and wonders shall never
“I have a wonderful work, in a wonderful way; I give wonderful service, for
It is man’s right to have more than enough, a cup that overflows.
If you want a house someone else is living in, do not demand that specific house, or
the greed will return to you and something be taken from you. Instead affirm “I live
in the perfect house according to divine selection,” and the Law of Substitution will
People who do not know the Spiritual Law are under influence of Karmic Law; for
example, a person can be affected by the thoughts of others only if he does not know
the Spiritual Law. In that sense, knowing the Spiritual Law overrides any karmic
influences from others.
You should not hesitate to use what you have, because supply is infinite. The Law of
Use. Not using what you have violates the spiritual law. Giving away is always a
wonderful investment and will return to you multiplied rewards (but expect nothing
in return). Never hesitate to spend money.
Giving opens the way to receiving. Continually giving away for example 10% of
one’s income is an excellent investment and is sure to bring increase to you. It should
be given cheerfully and fearlessly.
“There is no separation in divine mind, therefore I cannot be separated from the love
and companionship which are mine by divine right.”
Before a manifestation come signs of land, do not mistake the small results for the
Never say no to a gift. Always be open to receive. The Law of Receiving.
Every human exists to teach you a lesson. Suffering is not necessary for development,
it’s the result of violation of Spiritual Law, but few awaken without it. People often
succumb to Karma by being selfish.
Love is the fulfilling of the Law.
Speak the word and don’t do anything until you get a definite intuitive lead. “God
within, reveal to me the way, let me know if there is anything for me to do.”
“God within, open the way for my immediate supply, let all that is mine by divine
right now reach me in great avalanches of abundance. Give me a definite lead, let me
know if there is anything for me to do.”
Always ask for the desire to come from the perfect idea in Divine
“I am always under direct inspiration, I make right decisions quickly.”
It is destructive to seek psychic advice. It’s the plane of many minds and not the one
mind. It deals only with the karmic path. It can be overridden with the Spiritual Law.
“Every false prophecy shall cease to exist, every plan God within has not planned,
shall be dissolved. The divine idea now comes to pass.”
Someone who expects happiness or manifestation to come will get it through the Law
Everything may seem to be going wrong when it is actually going right.
“I deny loss, there is no loss in Divine Mind, therefore I cannot lose [x] which belong
to me by divine right. As one door shuts, another one opens.”
Divine Mind/Superconsciousness knows the perfect self-expression for you. It’s
awaiting your recognition. The highest desire of all is the divine design of your life to
come through, even if you do not know what it is. “God within, open the way for the
divine design of my life to manifest; let the genius within be now be released, let me
see clearly the perfect plan.”
Perfect self-expression is never labor but feels like play.
Don’t visualize, or force, a mental picture. Instead demand the divine design to come
to your mind and you’ll get flashes of inspiration.
Become a channel for God within to express through you.
Never be fine with depending on yourself, always depend on God within. God within
is always necessary, every minute, even when it does not seem so.
Don’t dictate how the manifestation shall come!
“In Divine Mind there is only completion, therefore my manifestation is completed.
My perfect work, my perfect home, my perfect health.”
“I am fully equipped for the divine plan of my life.”
“God within, open the way for my right home, my right friend, my right position. I
give thanks it now manifests in a perfect way.” Always state in a perfect way.
You can even manifest oxygen out of nowhere (from within!).
“God within, I will take nothing less than I’ve asked for – but more!” Never
Cast your burden to God within and you will have instant manifestation.
“I deny this appearance of disease. It is unreal, therefore cannot register in your
consciousness. You are a perfect idea in divine mind.”
There’s no time and space in divine mind/superconsciousness.
Only act through intuition and definite leads, and ask for it.
Manifestations can be instant and money can come out of nowhere (from within)
from one second to another, without apparent logical cause!
Trusting God within raises you to the 4th dimension where you are free from all astral
and psychic influences.
All power is given man through right thinking, to bring his heaven upon his earth;
and this is the goal of the game of life. Rules: fearless faith, non-resistance and
