Power-Week 18

You Have The Power

This power is the creative thought of the mind when it is in harmony with God.  We are reminded once again of Emerson and the law of compensation because for the creation of our new reality is so dependent on our giving more to get more that it almost goes without saying.

Smiling, joy, and happiness will be ours if we give it away.  The Universal mind will replace what we’ve given with what we need in accordance with His desires.  We must know that some of the thoughts we grew up with probably are echoes of this chapter.  How often have we been told to put our hearts into the task at hand.  This really is the giving away of our efforts and the rewards are in the return of abundant quantities of what we give away.  It’s almost like saying that if you want wealth you must give wealth away.  Not all of it, of course, but in heart and in the spirit of joy.

The physical manifestation occurs because we are making progress with the energy that this creates.  The energy produces the vibration which causes the back and forth of the things attracted to this energy.  So we’ve been concentrating this week on our power to do this.  Literally create the energy which is the life that is planted in the inert and physical world.  From that energy, like a seed, and with the conditions being ideal, then the thing we desire will appear.

Simultaneously we are also realizing that our time to do this is limited and we are making this the best day of our remaining lives.  Get to it.  You have the power.

I was born in the same hospital I trained in almost 65 years ago. Family came from good old Germanic stock matched with my Irish mother's value added good cooking and discipline. I had four brothers and I was the oldest. Education was with the Notre Dame nuns, the Jesuit priests, and then the Holy Cross fathers at Notre Dame. I completed my medical school back in Milwaukee and actually trained in the same hospital I was born in. My best thing that ever happened to me was meeting and then marrying my Kathy, a patient and loving gal who has given me three great sons and a lot of her patience. The story is longer, but for now check out donketterhagen.com for more specifics. We spend our days building a Lyoness shopping network and living in the mountains of North Carolina in the summer and Estero, Florida over the winter. Life is good.

  1. How right you are Don that much of what we see, hear, and learn is steeped in the knowledge we are rediscovering. I’m going to turn up the level on my vibrations. Thanks for sharing

  2. Don, I liked your opening sentence, “This power is the creative thought of the mind when it is in harmony with God.” I truly want my desires to be inharmony with God. Touching this world in ways He has designed for me..allowing His creative power to flow through me as His maidservant…the adventures have only just begun! And I must admit, so much of my parents’ training, and love for me was positive to take forward into my adult life. I am forever grateful for their positive impact upon my life. I hold many of my values and work ethic due to their training. May we live this day as if it is our last. And if it is not, may we fall on our knees in thanksgiving for another day! Thank you for sharing, as always thought provoking posts.
