The first headline that AOL flashed before me this morning was How To Win The Lottery By Visualizing It. Cynthia Stafford was a single mother raising five kids. She read books about positive thinking by Divine Science minister Joseph Murphy. Through Murphy’s teachings of self-healing and visualization, Stafford set her mind on winning $112 million. She wrote the figure “$112 million” constantly, meditated on it, and imagined how excited she would be once the money finally came into her life. After four months of obsessive focus — the first couple of weeks took considerable discipline, she says — she stopped and let go. “Once you’re in the flow of the energy,” she says, “it’s going to happen.” And in May 2007, Stafford won $112 million in California’s Mega Millions lottery. And she’s using it wisely. “The ones who blew it also said they were going to blow it,” she says. “They said it before it happened. It’s what you believe. They attracted that. We have two choices in life. We can choose to see the best situation in our lives, or bemoan why things are not working.”
Dr. Joseph Murphy’s writings are enjoying a resurgence of popularity. Last year, Hayhouse reissued some of his more popular books and you can find them here. Basically, Dr. Murphy said: The healing presence of God is within you. This miraculous healing power in your subconscious mind, if scientifically directed, can heal your mind, body, and affairs of all disease and impediments.
He gives the Steps in Healing: The first step in healing is not to be afraid of the manifest condition — from this very moment. The second step is to realize that the condition is only the product of past thinking, which will have no more power to continue its existence. The third step is mentally to exalt the miraculous healing power of God within you. This procedure instantly will stop the production of all mental poisons in you or in the person for whom you are praying. Live in the embodiment of your desire, and your thought and feeling will soon be made manifest. Do not allow yourself to be swayed by human opinion and worldly fears, but live emotionally in the belief that it is God in action in your mind and body.
Lottery winner Cynthia Stafford knew that she could heal the thinking that had her struggling in today’s economy under hardship conditions. She began an active plan of working on her inner self and a daily spiritual practice including reading. Dr. Joseph Murphy’s books are not about making money, they are about thinking in accord with accepting the fullness of what the Universe offers you every day. The lottery win was simply one expression of that. Stafford wants you to know that you, too, can win the lottery. “Even if it seems that nothing is going your way, in regards to your goals, you are going to reach them,” she says. “Have strong beliefs. Everything you wish to have will happen.”
Here is Dr. Joseph Murphy’s Special Prayer for Eyes and Ears: I am the Lord that healeth me. My vision is spiritual, eternal, and a quality of my consciousness. My eyes are Divine ideas, and they are always functioning perfectly. My perception of spiritual Truth is clear and powerful. The light of understanding dawns in me; I see more and more of God’s Truth every day. I see spiritually; I see mentally; I see physically. I see images of Truth and Beauty everywhere. The infinite Healing Presence is now, this moment, rebuilding my eyes. They are perfect, Divine instruments, enabling me to receive messages from the world within and the world without. The glory of God is revealed in my eyes. I hear the Truth; I love the Truth; I know the Truth. My ears are God’s perfect ideas, functioning perfectly at all times. My ears are the perfect instruments which reveal God’s harmony to me. The love, beauty, and harmony of God flow through my eyes and ears; I am in tune with the Infinite. I hear the still, small voice of God within me. The Holy Spirit quickens my hearing, and my ears are open and free. Amen.
Here is An Effective Prosperity Prayer by Dr. Joseph Murphy: I know there is only one Source, the Life-Principle, from which all things flow. It created the universe and all things therein contained. I am a focal point of the Divine presence. My mind is open and receptive. I am a free-flowing channel for harmony, beauty, guidance, wealth, and the riches of the Infinite. I know that health, wealth, and success are released from within and appear without. I am now in harmony with the infinite riches within and without, and I know these thoughts are sinking into my subconscious mind and will be reflected on the screen of space. I wish for everyone all the blessings of life. I am open and receptive to God’s riches – spiritual, mental, and material – and they flow to me in avalances of abundance.
I’m going to play the $112 million lottery game. That’s going to be my target figure. Let me see how many 112 happenings I can attract. Let me see how allowing and non-resistant a state I can keep myself in. LOL No pressure there, huh?
Play it with me?
