Chapter 4 – The Law of Non-Resistance

To Resist or to Let Go?

Read from Florence Scovel Shinn's The Game of Life & How to Play It

Aloha Dear Loves ~

Here is your next episode, Chapter 4 – The Law of Non-Resistance, from The Game of Life and How to Play It, as read by your cheerful host, LemurianGirl.

Before reading and listening to The Law of Non-Resistance, let's talk about what Resistance is. You know what it is instinctively… if you imagine yourself holding your arm out and a friend standing across from you holding her arm out pushing her hand against yours, you know that as long as you're about the same strength, it's a stalemate if you're both pushing against each other. That's resistance. If one of you stops resisting, the other falls forward, demonstrating the power of letting go, a.k.a. non-resistance.

Here are some other character traits of Resistance, to help you discriminate when your Mind / Ego starts toying with you. These were developed by Lester Levenson, of the Release Technique.

  1. Resistance is a major block to releasing.
  2. Effort is the Energy Required to Overcome Resistance (I suggest you find a powerful self-realization method to help you do this)
  3. The want to be Imperturbable, at Peace, In Beingness, Happiness with No Sorrow, allows us to overcome resistance.
  4. Resistance is opposition to force real or imagined.
  5. Wanting to control the other person, who you think is trying to control you, you can only experience their pushing you, you can only experience your own resistance.
  6. The “I can't” is resistance, it takes a conscious effort to overcome the unconscious effort (habit) of holding down the feelings.
  7. Resistance is just another program we have programmed to protect all the other programs that we programmed.
  8. If there were no resistance, one would become liberated. We are constantly having to release the resistance in order to let the feelings up and out.
  9. Resistance is when you haven't decided yet whether to do the thing or not, and you're doing it anyway, and it's difficult. To make it easy to do, all you need to do is decide to do it, or decide to not do it, and don't do it.
  10. Resistance is pushing against the world so it will push back.

LemurianGirl recommends you witness your self and notice the resistance, usually it is apparent as a clutching or contraction in your stomach or chest area in response to certain emotions or thoughts.

Please submit your comments about Resistance and Non-Resistance below, I appreciate all your shares!

the power of the spoken word

The Power of the Word

Are words really all that powerful? Find out in this chapter, which I would love to rename “The Law of the Spoken Word.” Learn it and start watching your “idle words”.

Chapter 3 – The Power of the Word

the power of the spoken wordMoving into Chapter 3 of The Game of Life and How to Play It, Ms. Shinn continues to break it down to the basics of what she calls Spiritual Law. You've all heard something about the Law of Attraction by now, and some of you have even dabbled in conscious manifestation.

Sometimes it isn't easy to keep the magic up consistently though, because we get sucked into this drama or that drama in life. Or worse, we get to a point where creation becomes easy and then we stop being aligned with God/dess in everything we do.

“If one is willing to do a thing he is afraid to do, he does not have to do it.”

“The invisible forces are ever working to fulfill your requests”

“Let's talk about what we do want and not what we don't want.”

“The body may be renewed and transformed through the spoken word and clear vision, and disease be completely wiped out of the consciousness.”

“As the Within, So the Without”

“Bless them that Persecute You”

Feel free to rewind and re-listen to things more than once – there is a lot of truth here and the tempo of the Podcast may be going faster than your own inner process. All you need to do is Pause and Rewind it until it sinks in.

What I love about the message in this Chapter is that it brings each one of us back into control what we have dominion over – our own mind. What's stewing in there, and what are words are betraying a state of mind that perpetuates a feeling of dis-ease within … and in this chapter we learn the vibration of our words through our vocal chords travels into the outer world as well as the inner.

Thanks for your patience with my “Newbie-ness” in doing audio recordings. They'll keep improving!

Much Love Sweeties ~ and Let me know how it goes with understanding that “Life and Death are in the Tongue.” I think it was Jesus who said that.

As always, your comments are welcomed – am enjoying the conversation with each of you. *Hugs & Kisses*

Love,

golden eggs law of prosperity

The Law of Prosperity

Is there really natural law that governs prosperity? Listen and put the knowledge into practice to find out.

Chapter 2 – The Law of Prosperity

The Game of Life and How to Play It Audio Recording by Lemurian Girl (includes commentary and modifications for gender equality)

Are you content to go through life as a victim, or helpless person, subject to every whim of the outside world? Or will you become as solid and grounded as a rock, able to design and build your life to your preference? Learn the law, follow it, and you shall prosper.

Here are some highlights from this chapter ~ but please listen and read it in it's completion.

Quotes from Chapter 2 ~ The Law of Prosperity

“She (or he, if you are a guy reading this) must have perfect faith in her (or his) own spoken word.”

“…words and thoughts are a tremendous vibratory force.”

“There is a Supply for Every Demand.”

“Act your Perfect Faith. Act as if You Have Already Received”

“If one asks for success and prepares for failure…” what do you think will happen?

Start with the end in mind. Dig your ditches. Be undisturbed by appearances.

One with God is a Majority.

Be on the alert for adverse thoughts that surge from the subconscious ~ the “Army of Aliens”, doubts, fears, worries. The reason it is darkest before dawn. Make your affirmations of truth repeatedly.

Hold on to your vision and give thanks that you have already received (even before you see it). But remember, it is much easier to demonstrate for someone else than for oneself because the friend is outside of the situation. Thus, we as comrades, can help one another to be successful in applying spiritual law when we are having difficulty staying steady in our vision ourselves.

Have you ever applied the Law of Prosperity in your life before? What were the results? I'd love to know, so please share!

Aloha,

Lemurian Girl

The Game of Life and How to Play It

Chapter 1 – The Game

Many of you have heard of the movie “The Secret”, and many of you continue to gain wisdom and insights from the myriad of teachers featured in the film, such as Esther and Jerry Hicks and their “Abraham Hicks” franchise. This post is not to discount any of these teachers or teachings.

I feel that if particular methods or teachings create desired outcomes and results in your life as you rediscover your power and purpose as an Unlimited, Infinite Being of Love — Hallelujah, praise Jesus. That's most excellent and I congratulate you. Perhaps, however, you are open minded and are fascinated by the many ways to express Truth.

This book completely helped me to change my life into something good and beautiful at a time when it was unbearable and tragic.

The book isn't for everyone though. I've recommended it to a lot of people, and hardly anyone took it to heart the way I did. Maybe it's because I grew up attending Waldorf schools and studying many different types of spirituality, so maybe that's why this book was an easy read for me.

I also used to love reading children's books from England as a child growing up in the former English colony of Jamaica. Maybe my more unconventional background and sheltered childhood shaped me into a person with an ability to read many different styles of writing and still feel and take in the author's intention.

I actually purchased index cards and wrote down each one of my “problems” on one index card, flipped it over and wrote the proper Scovell Shinn intention on the other side. I used the “power of my spoken word” to create miracles.

Over the month of January, I'm going to read the book as part of my Real Revolutionaries podcast series. I stop and make commentary at some parts of the reading, I also re-read certain passages to make them gender equal.

I hope you enjoy, let me know if you find any resonance or have any success stories of your own with this book.

Someone besides me read this book into an audio book! You may like her voice better than mine, so I thought I'd provide a second option.

Cheers!
