Thinking Anew: Harnessing the Power of Belief

Thinking Anew: Harnessing the Power of Belief by  Eugene F. Moynihan, JR and  Richard F. Quis is different from any other positive thinking book that I have read.

The authors talk about focusing on your intentions and working on getting to know what you actually want an don’t want.

Once you know what you are looking for you can LET IT HAPPEN by entrusting it in the Higher power (GOD).

It is through  failure and setbacks that we eliminate what is suppose to be for us and get to our desired outcome.

” If you can change the way you think, you will be able to attract what you desire.”

This is the mindset that has to be cultivated. Removing negative thoughts and presumptions while focusing on Gratitude is how one can harness the power of Belief.

Many a times we fail as we give ourselves self imposed limitations  which results in self fulfilling prophesies. This stifles our development and hampers our ability  for positive anticipation which we need.

Moynihan and Quis advocate  Written Goal Focus Therapy which involves writing daily about your intentions.  The writing exercise would allow one to focus on their creative energy and let their desires start to manifest.

My thoughts

I found this book to be a very refreshing read. It couldn’t come at a better time for me. I’m focusing more on knowing myself  better and also develop a  closer walk with GOD in the process.

I will be using this book as a catalyst to help me in my growth this 2015.

There are a lot of blank pages in this book  where one can pen down their daily thoughts of personal affirmation and work through their feelings while changing their mindset.  The book itself is a great starting point for one who is interested in embarking on a spiritual journey of self discovery.

Do pick up a copy of the book if you are interested in harnessing the  Power of Belief.

Writer’s Workshop: Only You


R and me in Taiwan on Valentines' Day
R and me in Taiwan on Valentines’ Day

4 months  and 16 days ~ That’s the  number of days to our 14th Wedding Anniversary.  R is 7 years my senior  and I have known him since I was an 18 yr old in University.

You can say that I have known him half my life and  it seems like we have been together forever.

I knew from the start that  I wanted you to be mine. Even though it seemed  rather strange  to others at that time coming from one who was barely eighteen.

You can say that we were  meant for each other and never had once I doubted that decision of mine and have been sticking by it ever since.

Even though you may or may not realize I’m still madly in love with you. I feel like a blushing teenager.

The thought of being able to spend time with you now that you are working overseas really  thrills me. To be in the same space and making joined memories which we will be able to relate to our kids and grandkids are experiences which I really cherish.

The way you hold my hand in yours, the warmth of your embrace gives me the peace and security that I seek.

It’s in the way that you hug and  kiss me goodnight that makes me have a peaceful night.

I love the way that you make the kids and my eyes light up each time you walk in through the main door.

The laughter you create when you play with our kids, the fun and joy. The exuberance that you have and dedication to the family makes me blush with pride.

Even though it really hurts when we have to part again after being together for a week or so I do appreciate the time that we get to spend together.

Love you always.

Having you around  our  home is complete.
