A few years ago a friend gave me one of Florence Scovel Shinn’s books – The Game of Life and How to Play it. And like with so many valuable books often happens – these end somewhere in our library, and due to time constrictions, or procrastination – we simply forget the lessons and ideas that we wanted to integrate in our lives. The following article written by Tom Butler-Bowdon is about Scovel Shinn and her ideas, and had to be shared with you here on totally-useless.com. Enjoy and wishing you a splendid week ahead!

Expecting the Best
by Tom Butler-Bowdon

Scovel Shinn (see end of article for biographical notes on Florence Scovel Shinn) devoted her life to helping people recognize the link between their attitudes and their level of happiness. A relaxed state of expectancy, she taught, is the best mindset for bringing success into your life. Sometimes, intensity of desire can actually turn away things that are good for you because it suggests faith only in yourself and not in the higher power that has created you. Few understand the success law that deeply felt, even burning ambitions and desires are most easily realized by allowing them to be realized — a case of “set and forget.”

It is hard for the driven person to accept the biblical suggestion to “Have no thought for the morrow.” Yet instead of madly pursuing something night and day, it is much more efficient to have a relaxed knowledge that the achievement you desire is pulling you toward it. Be clear about what you want and then have the faith that it will come. Employ what she calls the occult law of indifference: “Your ships come in over a don’t care sea.” We have all observed that success has its own time frame and often comes quietly when we least expect it.

Preparing for good things
While it is good to change your outlook so that you expect good things, you must also prepare for them.

You can read as much as you like about prosperity thinking and make affirmations, but this is only “armchair faith,” Scovel Shinn says, unless you act prosperously in real life. She recounts the story of a woman who wanted to send her two daughters to college, but clearly did not have the money. However, against her husband’s objections that the idea was unreasonable, she went ahead with plans for their enrollment, stating that “some unforeseen good” would occur. As it happened, a rich relative sent her a sum of money that covered all the girls’ tuition costs.

Doubt, worries, and living in the past only buttress the walls around your Jericho. Life has a way of shaping itself to our expectations, good or bad, Scovel Shinn says, therefore let your thoughts and actions express relaxed, unwavering faith.

While Scovel Shinn describes prayer as “telephoning to God,” she says that intuition is “God telephoning you.”

Some people are careful reasoners, relying only on their intellect to solve problems. They “weigh and measure the situation like dealing in groceries,” but the solutions they come up with are far from perfect. How often do you wish that you had gone with your hunch on an issue? At Christmas time a house can be filled with presents, but none is felt to be quite right for the recipient. Consumption without intuition is inevitably wasteful. Asking for guidance, Scovel Shinn says, “always saves time and energy and often a lifetime of misery.” Intuition seems magic, because it has the power of Infinite Intelligence behind it. “Unless intuition builds the house, they labor in vain who build it.”

Many of the great achievements have been guided by intuition. Scovel Shinn mentions Henry Ford, who never gave up on his feeling that the motor car could be for everyone. Despite his boss and his father thinking it a crazy idea, he persevered, hearing only the voice inside him that said “Do it.” When you come to a fork in the road, follow the voice of intuition. If it is God’s role to give you hunches, it is yours to be awake to them and not waste them.

Relieved of the Burden
Many times in your life you will feel overwhelmed. This is the perfect time to practice faith over fear.

A woman came to Scovel Shinn with a mess of complications in her life, and was simply told, “Let God juggle the situation.” The woman took a leap of faith, imagining the matters out of her hands, and things quickly cleared up. Try to juggle everything yourself and inevitably you drop the balls; what you find so difficult is of course nothing to God. Perfect faith leads to perfect outcomes.

It is easier to have faith with things that matter less to you, but the real successes come when you entrust the big things. How can you remember to buttress this confidence when you need it? If you are beginning to doubt, Scovel Shinn says, say this to yourself: “His ways are ingenious, His methods are sure.” Let God take up the burden.

The Secret Door to Success tells the story of a priest on a visit to a French convent, which every day fed many children. However, it had run out of money and the nuns were despairing. Holding up a single piece of silver, one of them told the visitor that this was all they had left to buy food and clothes for the children.

The priest asked for the coin and the nun handed it to him.

He promptly threw it out the window, saying, “Now rely entirely on God.” Soon after, people arrived bearing gifts of food and money.

The moral? You don’t have to throw away your money or close your bank account, but do not depend on the money you have. Whenever you feel “short,” remind yourself: “God is the source of my supply.” You don’t need to know exactly how you will he provided for; don’t limit the channels by which you might receive. The one caveat is that you should ask for what is yours by “divine right.”

Many people achieve wealth but then quickly lose it, because it was grasped, not given. To maintain ownership of your investments, remember that they are a manifestation of God for which you must be grateful. Scovel Shinn recalls an old Arabic saying: “What Allah has given cannot be diminished.” If you happen to lose money you will not be shattered, knowing that God will soon provide other opportunities.

Don’t underestimate the power of words to make or break you financially, Scovel Shinn says, for “Your world is a world of crystallized ideas, crystallized words.” Those who speak only of what they lack will therefore end up with little. “You cannot enter the Kingdom of Abundance bemoaning your lot.” Instead, you will enter it by being more and more aware of the world’s abundance; you can never really feel a state of lack, knowing the truth of the statement that “The Lord is my Shepherd; I shall not want” (Psalms 23:1).

Final comments
Most people give up just before something great is about to happen to them. Success is a system, Scovel Shinn claims, in which courage and perseverance are important elements. A friend once took her to a New York City park to see the sun rise, and she found this simple thing to be a wondrous experience. You may be so used to your daily habits and patterns that you wear yourself into a rut. You cease to be aware of the opportunities that arise through being fully present in the moment, and you stop expecting great things.

If there is one overall message to The Secret Door to Success, it is that you must avoid being overwhelmed by life and realize that there is something larger than you that is willing to shoulder the burdens. It is a simple fact that you are constantly “fooled by the darkness before the dawn.” If you can live by faith instead of fear, you have found Scovel Shinn’s secret door.

Florence Scovel Shinn
Born in 1871 in Camden, New Jersey, Florence Scovel was the daughter of a lawyer. She was educated in Philadelphia and attended the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts from 1889 to 1897, where she met Everett Shinn (1876-1953), a well-known painter. They married after her graduation and moved to New York City to pursue their artistic careers, living near Washington Square.

Florence became an illustrator of popular children’s literature in magazines and books, and also a teacher of metaphysics. Her classic, The Game of Life and How to Play It, was self-published in 1925, followed in 1928 by Your Word Is Your Wand. The Secret Door to Success was published shortly before her death in 1940.

Angelic Heirarchy and Angels Realm – do these exist?

University Of Metaphysical Sciences, Christine Breese

I am not so sure if I agree with everything that Christine Breese is stating in regards to angels, and archangels, or the angelic heirarchy in the following video. Her talks about being still in the mind, and being in the moment is what got me involved in Matrix Energetics, and the Quantum Entrainment. However, it has not to do with enlightenment, even though it could be explained in such a way as well. I do agree that the experience of knowing the self and what you are is ever deepening, and the journey truly never ends.

These talks by Christine Breese are videos especially for the internet directly to you, sponsored by University Of Metaphysical Sciences.
Christine Breese is the founder of University of Metaphysical Sciences, which offers Bachelors, Masters, Doctorate D.D. and Ph.D. degrees in metaphysical subjects.
If you would like to meet Christine Breese in person, she offers retreats throughout the year. You can contact University Of Metaphysical Sciences at umsonline.org for retreat schedules or registration. You can also hear 10 minute meditations by Christine at MySpace.

The Divine Matrix – Useless or Not?

Thursday, April 22nd, 2010

If you have not heard of Gregg Braden and the numbers of his works, such as The Divine Matrix, I do recommend you to view the following video:

Taken from the Divine Matrix book:

Are the miracles that we see in the quantum world showing us our greatest potential, rather than our scientific limits? Could the reversal of disease, an instant connection with everything, and everyone altering Reality itself, be our true heritage in the universe? New discoveries suggest that the answer to these possibilities, and much more, is “Yes!”

In 1944, Max Planck, the father of quantum theory, shocked the world by saying that there is a “matrix” of energy that provides the blueprint for our physical world. It is this place of pure energy where everything from the birth of stars and the DNA of life, to our deepest relationships and healing begins. Recent discoveries show dramatic evidence that Planck’s matrix—The Divine Matrix—is the missing link in our understanding that provides:

~The container for the universe
~The bridge between our imagination and our reality
~The mirror in our world for what we create in our beliefs

To tap the force of this matrix, we must understand how it works and speak the language that it recognizes. For more than 20 years, Gregg Braden, a former senior aerospace computer systems designer, has searched for the understanding to do just that. From the remote monasteries of Egypt, Peru and Tibet, to the forgotten texts that were hidden by the early Christian Church, the secret of the Divine Matrix was left in the coded language of our most cherished traditions. It is verified in today’s science.

There are different views about Greg Bradden’s works, and I cannot agree with the negative once that are calling him plagiarist producing piles of poop. His ideas are based on long years of research, and experience that are bringing in a staggering and new set of ideas to the concepts of science and spirituality. The Divine Matrix book shows what the ancient seers and mystics understood – some of which is also in present in the Bible. As a bonus there are the 20 keys that encompass the more important concepts of the Divine Matrix and how to create consciously within it, or, how to use the information he provides to create the miracles you wish in your life.

LERM Technology could work with Matrix Energetics

Sunday, March 21st, 2010

Last week I wrote about Matrix Energetics, and while visiting the Matrix Energetics forum I stumbled on a post about manifesting money. I do recommend that you subscribe for the forums so that you have access to every post there – including the one I just mentioned.

What is LERM Technology? LERM is Light Encoded Reality Matrix. Direct download link to 3 essays is here. And the Manifest production Observership downloadis here. Be quick with downloading these as many have been taken down already, and for as much as I know the only available once are only on Scribd.com right now. One phrase of these essays did something with me: “Without wisdom, all we have is history.” Just think about it, and let me know your thoughts.

The next step to follow is to visit WingMakers.com website and start your journey from there. The following physical technique of LERM was taken from the New Zealand wingmakers.com website:

Physical Technique

Step One
I want you to get comfortable and relax.

Step Two
Then visualize the sixth chakra. At the base of chakra there is a well of energy this well is known as the jewel of the lotus. Within the jewel there is a light golden energy. Visualize that this golden energy is trickling out of the jewel and spreading out into the chakra. As the chakra spins see the chakra becoming golden in colour with its light radiant energy.

Step three
Now in your own time project that light golden energy to a point in front of you and create a electromagnetic field. If it helps picture this electromagnetic field as a golden cloud.

Step Four
Then focus on an image of your desire and projecting that image into the electromagnetic field and make sure the electromagnetic field is completely surrounding that object.

Step Five
Then in your own time blend the electromagnetic field with the object and see the object taking form. see it transforming into physical matter and make sure the object is forming with no imperfection’s.

Step Six
As the object forms then instruct quantum object to ground into the physical plain of solid matter.

Step Seven
When you think you have got a solid object in front of you open your eyes. And remember this is not teleportation. This is creation from light and also remember the wingmakers code because we seek the service and protect humanity as wingmakers.

Tips & Hints
If you have trouble grounding the object try draw a hara line down into the earth and ground the object that way and if that doesn’t work try blending energy from the core star with the object and see what happens.

I was very fascinated with the interviews of Dr. Neruda and the Ancient Arrow Book. But I have read everything on this site, and downloaded most of the available downloads there. And for the once among you interested and studying quantum physics, and metaphysics this will be some eye opening read for sure.

Be always fabulous and have a great new week ahead 🙂

Number 11:11:11 again…

Wednesday, November 11th, 2009

Today is another 11:11:11 day, and since I was born under the number 11 it means a lot to me.
I shared the meaning of number 11 in this previous post so I am not going to talk about the meaning of the number 11.

If you haven’t done something special today for yourself, and with “special” I mean “spiritual,” to celebrate the number 11 in your life, than you will have another chance for it on the 29th of November 2009. I missed the opportunity to be nice for myself today and will make sure to not make the same “mistake” on the 29th this month. Work and all are great, but there should be always time for a break, or in other words – time to start smelling the roses…

And OK, it’s kind of winterish here, and the roses are almost gone, but you should take sometime to swim with the powerful energy that comes with number 11, and let all go while closing your eyes and letting yourself swim, or fly in the infinity of your being. This will re-invigorate you, and make you feel like re-born, and filled with strength and energy beyond the normal surge after having had a good night rest. It will make you happier and open to the chances life and karma has for you, especially today, or on the 29th of November 2009.

So go ahead, and let the energy do it’s work, while you open your heart and enjoy the energy and new insights you’ll be having afterwards.

Time for smelling the roses...

Be Always Fabulous and Happy 🙂

From Existence to Nonexistence

This article is part of my writings that are usually published on my philosophical blog – The Philosophers Chair

From existence to nonexistence
by Tatiana Velitchkov © 2009

Existence means something that has continuance of life. Since the word comes from the Latin word ‘existere’ it can also mean to appear, to become or to be. Nonexistence means it used to exist but now doesn’t, or there was something but now there is nothing – or the negativity of being. Modern qualified philosophers feel to assert that unavoidable development to their explanation. They feel the non – existence assumption for existence is reasonable for certain claims.

Assumptions are applied according to the cases in which they come, there is no relation for a nonexistent world. Furthermore, there is no concrete proof when a person admits, proposes under this discussion. Others propose that existence is actually something the same as meaning real while others say it is just a distinctive verb. When we back date we can see how Aristotle complicated the theory of being as an individual thing like substances to have being.

David Hume presented an argument that the claim existence added to our inclusive concept of a thing, adds nothing. He gave an example of Moses. He says Moses existed but adds nothing to the concept. Under mathematics we take existence as three quantities. One is “some” meaning something exists. In a sentence we can say that Mary exists. On the contrary we can say “a square exists”. We consider the square to be in existence as Mary.

However, we when we come to Christianity some say that God exists and at the same time being non existence. Contrariwise, when we look at physics we can see that space and time expands to nothingness or absence. So how do we look at this concept of how God can be nonexistent or how the world that it is in existence comes to be nonexistent? Then if there were two worlds that live in distinctly separate existence exist when we know absolutely nothing is between them?

According to science, to distinguish existent and non – existent objects we use the concept of matter or energy. In this case existence is made up of real and fictional objects. Relating to Peagasus files we can say that John exists, we are declaring that John exists in this worldview where he is made of atoms and not a myth. When we say in mathematics square ABCD we mean the triangle exists but not saying it is made up of atoms.
