5 Things You Need to Know From Norman Vincent Peale’s Book: The Power of Positive Thinking

Published

on

The Late American Minister and Author, Norman Vincent Peale (1898 – 1993), is known for supporting the concept of positive thinking through his bestseller, The Power of Positive Thinking.

I read the book a few days ago, and it gave me faith and hope in life. I also learned the importance of positive psychology from it. I hope you’ll read the book because it will make you a positive, prayerful, and purposeful individual.

I thank you for giving me the opportunity to share with you the main lessons I learned from the book.

  1. The Best Way to Overcome Self-Doubt is to Build Faith

Norman Vincent Pearle writes that self-doubt is the biggest killer of your dreams, but the good thing is that you can overcome it by filling your mind with faith. According to him, you fill your mind with faith by praying constantly and trusting in God’s help and guidance.

  1. You Cannot Succeed in Life if you Don’t Believe in Yourself

Norman believes that people who trust in their abilities usually succeed because self-confidence leads to self-realization.

Besides this, Norman teaches that those who don’t believe in themselves fail because the lack of self-confidence prevents the development of faith and hope. And without these two virtues, one cannot succeed.

Also, he claims that the lack of self-confidence leads to failure because it makes you fear to grasp big opportunities and take huge responsibilities.

  1. You Can Practise Attaining Inner Peace

Norman teaches that you can attain inner peace by doing the following.

  • Thinking peaceful thoughts.
  • Visualizing peaceful images.
  • Practicing silence for 15 minutes every day.
  • Affirming peaceful words such as, ‘serenity.’

 

  1. There is a Formula for Effective Prayer

Norman believed prayer is the greatest power because it opens your mind to the Creator. In the book, he teaches that the most effective formula for prayer is to prayerise, picturise, and actualize.

You prayerize by praying consistently. You then picturize by continually taking time to visualize the success of your prayers. Lastly, you actualize by working hard and wisely.

  1. ‘You Will Get the Best if You Expect the Best’ – Norman Vincent Pearle

In the book, Norman writes that you will always get the best out of life if you expect the best. Expecting the best activates the Law of Attraction by making your mind emit a magnetic force that brings the best to you.

Concluding Remarks

From the Power of Positive Thinking, we learn that we can achieve success if we build self-confidence, attain inner peace, pray, and expect the best.

    What I love is that it validates a couple of things I am doing already – I have been trying to meditate but sometimes my mind wanders terribly. This is a great reminder that just sitting in silence for 15 minutes can be very powerful. Also, I pray and then visualize it coming true. Neat!

The Secret History of the Illuminati

The Secret History of the Illuminati

‘It should be understood that the doctrines and philosophies expounded by the Order (Illuminati) predate it by millennia. These traditions and beliefs can be traced back through the Freemasons, Rosicrucians, Knights Templars, Mystery Schools of Greece and Egypt, to ancient Sumer and their accounts of the possibly extraterrestrial Annunaki (Jim Marr; Illuminati: The Secret Society That Hijacked the World).’

Recently, I provided a brief book review of Jim Marr’s book: Illuminati; The Secret Society that Hijacked the World. Today, I’ll share with you Jim Marr’s amazing thoughts on the history of the Illuminati.

According to Jim Marr, the Illuminati stole its secret knowledge from ancient secret societies, such as the Rosicrucians and Knights Templars. These secret societies stole this secret knowledge from an ancient advanced civilization known as Sumer, which received the knowledge from extraterrestrial beings known as The Annunaki.

These secret societies were not evil associations. They all believed in God, and they claimed to understand the hidden mysteries of the world. However, they hated the church because they believed they didn’t need anyone to interpret the word of God for them. Besides, they referred to themselves as ‘The Chosen Ones’ since they believed they were the keepers of ancient secret knowledge.

These secret societies led to the founding of the Illuminati in 1776 by Adam Weishaupt, a student of ancient knowledge, and an admirer of ancient secret societies. Weishaupt formed the Illuminati because he wanted to use it to promote justice and equality.

He then focused on recruiting the youth: particularly professionals and individuals from wealthy families.

Later, the Illuminati attracted the interest of high-level society members – such as the scientists, authors, bankers, politicians, and philosophers- who then changed Illuminati’s goals and used it to establish control over the masses. It was then banned in 1785, and Adam Weishaupt was forced into exile. However, despite being banned, the Illuminati continued existing under different forms and names.

Today, it controls the world’s political, economic, religious, and social affairs. Some whistleblowers even claim that the Illuminati is engineering diseases and creating wars to reduce the world’s population. On top of that, several conspiracy theorists believe the Illuminati is currently conducting moon landings and secret space flights.

Anyway, some people believe famous musicians, politicians, writers, and investors are the primary members of The Illuminati, while others claim that the main members are extraterrestrials who also rule other planets.

It’s difficult to know who exactly the Illuminati is, and its specific aims. However, what we surely know is that A RULING CLASS that controls the masses exists, for as Albert Einstein wrote, ‘the ruling class at present, has the schools and press, usually the Church as well, under its thumb. This enables it to organize and sway the emotions of the masses, and make its tool of them (Jim Marr, The Secret Society That Hijacked the World).’

Peace Be With You

Book Review - Illuminati: The Secret Society that Hijacked the World by Jim Marr

In his book: Illuminati: The Secret Society that Hijacked the World, Jim Marr discusses several important facts about the Illuminati.

He writes about the mystical groups, such as the Assassins, Gnostics, Knight Templars, and Rosicrucians, from which the Illuminati stole its secret knowledge, and he provides a brief explanation of the groups’ beliefs, their beginning, and their end.

Jim Marr believes the Illuminati possesses ancient weapons and healing technologies, which it hides from the public, and eliminates any individual who tries to expose them.  He also writes about a man who disappeared after trying to expose a powder that would extend our longevity.

Jim Marr believes Adam Weishaupt founded the Illuminati after he gathered all the hidden mystical knowledge of ancient secret societies. Weishaupt then recruited people and promised to provide them with this knowledge if they ascended to the higher ranks of the Illuminati.

Moreover, Jim Marr writes about the banning of the Illuminati in the 18th century, and how the secret society continued its operations under a different name.

Besides, he believes the Illuminati, through the media, has ‘promoted consumerism, hyper-sexuality, alcoholism, drug consumption, and mental illnesses.’ He also thinks the Illuminati introduced 440HZ music, which is responsible for the high levels of narcissism and aggression today.

In addition, Jim Marr discusses how the Illuminati has infiltrated religion, commerce, military forces, judicial systems, and everything that affects the public. He also discusses how the Secret Society appears in Tv shows and films, and he reveals that some people believe the Illuminati is headed by extra-terrestrial beings. Besides this, he writes that the Illuminati might be trying to contact ancient gods through ancient technology.

In general, Jim Marr strives to enlighten us about the origins of the Illuminati, how it works, what it has done, and who its members might be.

I cannot discuss everything Jim Marr writes, and for this reason, you must read the book if you want to understand how the Illuminati works.

I believe this is the best book for individuals interested in the Illuminati because it agrees with my findings and the conclusions of many other secret society researchers.

Lastly, besides knowing more about the Illuminati, reading the book will enlighten you that the atomic bomb and other technologies you think are modern, were used over 400,000 years ago. You’ll also strive to find the TRUTH – after reading the book – because you’ll notice that our current reality was constructed by a Secret Society; The Illuminati.
