Fire and water have strong primal powers that can be used to your advantage.
Humans were using fire and water in their rituals long before pen and paper were invented, and these basic elements still have a primal power to influence us and help us succeed.

Water is an especially powerful source of creative power. Julian Jaynes was an influential psychologist who pointed out that we often make our most groundbreaking discoveries while we’re in bed, in the bath or on the bus.

Of these three B’s, how powerful the bath can be. This is due in part to how many sacred religious stories, poems, myths and paintings depict the powerful forces of water.

It’s no coincidence that it was while stepping into the bath that Archimedes had his famous “eureka!” moment that led to Archimedes’ principle. When he entered the bath, he noticed that the water level rose, and suddenly realized that you could measure this rise to determine the precise volume of an object.

And just as water can cleanse the body, being in or around a body of water can also cleanse the mind, which is one of the best ways to promote creativity.

Fire, on the other hand, can be used in rituals to give power to your intention. Indeed, Native American tribes have been using fire rituals for this very purpose for generations. At the start of a new year, certain tribes build arrows from sticks and feathers, and each of these arrows is made to represent a specific hope for the year ahead. They then burn the arrows as a gesture of offering this hope to the universe.

This is a wonderful ritual because it helps them be clear and precise about their hopes, thereby helping these hopes become a reality.

You can do the same thing with paper by writing down three goals you hope to achieve and three unwanted things that you hope to get rid of. Then, find a safe place and set fire to the paper to give a powerful intention to your desires.

With all these tools at hand, it will soon be clear that you have what it takes to turn dreams into reality.

No dream is too big for you to achieve, as long as you have the right attitude. Too often, our fears get in the way of what we hope to accomplish. But this can be remedied by writing down all that we desire and fear, thereby unlocking the power of the subconscious mind and putting us on the right path. The simple act of writing is a powerful one that is not unlike a prayer, and it can turn us into a magnet for the things we want most in our lives.

Start your day off by writing down your intent.
Take some quiet time at the beginning of your day to write down what you’d like to accomplish in the hours ahead. This is not for practical stuff like doing the laundry or going shopping. It’s to provide emotional and spiritual guidance for the day, such as “being the best mother I can be.” Just writing your intent down will keep you feeling grateful and positive throughout the day.

Stop  judging  events  as  either positive  or negative.  Rather,  simply  experience  them, celebrate them  and  learn  from  them.  

Every  event  offers  you  lessons.  These little lessons  fuel  your  inner  and  outer  growth. Without  them,  you would  be  stuck  on  a plateau. 

Just  think  about  it  in  your  own  life. Most people  have  grown  the  most  from  their  most challenging experiences.  

If  you  meet  with  an  outcome  you  did  not expect and  feel  a  little  disappointed, remember  that  the  laws  of  nature always ensure  that  when  one  door  closes  another opens.

Once  you  consistently  apply  this  principle  to your  daily  life  and start  to  condition  your mind  to  translate  every  event  into  a positive, empowering  one,  you  will  banish  worry forever.  You  will stop  being  a  prisoner  of your  past.  Instead,  you  will  become  the architect  of  your  future.

“Your  I can  is  more  important  than  your  I.Q.”
When  you  form  the  habit  of  searching  for  the  positive  in  every circumstance,  your  life  will  move  into  its  highest  dimensions.  This is  one  of  the  greatest  of  all  the  natural  laws.

And  it  all  starts  with  using  your  mind  more  effectively.

All  success  in  life,  whether  material  or spiritual,  starts  with  that  twelve-pound  mass  sitting  between  your shoulders.  Or  more  specifically,  with  the  thoughts  that  you  put  into your  mind  every  second  of  every  minute  of  every  day.  Your  outer world  reflects  the  state  of  your  inner  world.  By  controlling  the thoughts  that  you  think  and  the  way  you  respond  to  the  events  of your  life,  you  begin  to  control  your  destiny.

“Nature hates idleness in all its forms.”

She gives continuous life only to those elements which are in use. Tie up an arm, or any other portion of the body, taking it out of use, and the idle part will soon atrophy and become lifeless. Reverse the order, give an arm more than normal use, such as that engaged in by the blacksmith who wields a heavy hammer all day long and that arm (developed from within) grows strong.

Power grows out of organized knowledge, but mind you, it “grows out of it” through application and use.

As to the learning that any person gains from school education, it serves only like a small capital, to put him in the way of beginning learning for himself afterwards.

Every person of learning is finally his own teacher, the reason for which is, that principles cannot be impressed upon the memory, their place of mental residence is the understanding, and they are never so lasting as when they begin by conception.

The seed is put in the ground, and earth and air and water are placed around it. Does the seed become the earth, or the air, or the water? No. It becomes a plant, it develops after the law of its own growth, assimilates the air, the earth, and the water, converts them into plant substance and grows into a plant.

Similarly each one of us must assimilate the spirit of the others and yet preserve our individuality and grow according to our own law of growth.

The “depression” was a blessing in disguise. It reduces the whole world to a new starting point that gives everyone a new opportunity.
