Can we make things happen - Part 2

There was a reason why I wrote my previous post 'Can we make things happen' at that particular time, the morning of 29th July, 2012, to be precise. I have been planning to record this experience of mine for the past several years but have always been outsmarted by my sense f frustration. But I made it a point to write this on this date for a specific reason.

I live in a city called Chennai located in India. The Real Estate Promoters of this place make it a point to take their prospective buyers to the sites they are trying to sell, show them the place, outline the advantages (both real and imaginary) and try to convince then that buying a piece of land at that place would be the best investment of their lifetime. They offer attractive incentives for instant booking of a plot of land which should be done by paying an advance in cash. I went for such a show. The place was ok for investment and I decided to book one plot of land. The real estate dealer has a scheme of lucky dip through which one of the buyers who win the lucky dip will get a plot of land equal in area to the one he/she has bought. (The 'free land' comes with its own tags which will become visible only if you win the lucky dip, but this is another matter.)

I visited the site on 22nd July, When I made the advance payment by cheque, I was told that only those who paid cash (the term cash would denote only currency notes, not even a banker's cheque!) were eligible to participate in the lucky dip and that those who chose to pay by cheque would be eligible to participate only in the draw to be held the following week (after the real estate dealer got the amount credited to his account!) I was told that I should be physically present for the draw as otherwise my name won't be included.

Initially, I was annoyed at the thought of spending another Sunday visiting  the site again. But since that was the only way I would get a chance to be a lucky winner and the real estate promoter very generously offered me a free ride to the place, I decided to make the visit. One day before the day of visit, a thought occurred to me that since I would be spending my time visiting the place again, I should get the purpose of my visit. That meant that I should be the lucky winner for the day!

Once the seed of this thought germinated in my mind, I felt the thought growing stronger by the minute. I thought I should reinforce my belief. And what better way to do this than to record the earlier event of my winning a draw! So, I wrote the post on the morning of my visit.

I visited the place and waited patiently till the lucky dip was announced. I was given a token numbered 45. And the draw was held and the winning number was announced. It turned out to be 45!

Surprisingly, I was not surprised. It was as if I knew the result already and was  expecting to hear it. Did this strong feeling of mine ensure my success? Possibly. But if you ask me how, I can't answer. I have been wondering whether if I can condition my mind to success in whatever I do whether I can  always win. It looks very much possible. I will share my future experiences in course of time.

If you don't see any more posts on this topic, it may be due to 3 reasons:
1) I have not been getting  more successes.
2) I have been getting successes but my sense of procrastination has prevailed over me.
3) I have been getting successes so consistently and so frequently that I have no time to write more posts!

So, don't jump to conclusions. And if you do, assume number 3 to be the case!

Can we make things happen?

I once joined a networking marketing business. This was almost the first kind of network marketing business launched in India. My upline was a dynamic and enterprising sales trainer. He would conduct regular meetings on promoting the business. After trying for a while, I had given up on this business. My upline and his wife came to my house on a late evening and asked me to resume the business. As a first step, he invited my wife and me to a meeting at his office the next day. He asked us to be in time.

When we reached the meeting venue, I found that there was an incentive for early birds. People who came before the scheduled time were asked to fill in their names on  slips of paper and drop them in a box. There was to be a lucky draw  with a prize for the winner of the draw. Before the draw, my upline asked us who amongst us expected to be the winner. I raised my hand and I found that I was the only one to do it. Like everyone, I wanted to be a winner and when he asked who expected to be the winner, I thought ,"Why couldn't I be the one?" and raised the hand. I don't know why nobody else did. Perhaps, they have already concluded that they were not going to win.

And, when the draw was made, I turned out to be the winner to the amazement of everyone. My upline said that since I had decided to be the winner, I won. This incident gave me a lot of confidence. Coincidentally, the prize was a motivational cassette entitled 'Wish more, have more.' by a well known motivated speaker.

This incident leads to a question 'Can we make things happen by making our wishes strong?' I think, we can. May be not always but we don't lose anything by making our wishes strong. I think that one whose wishes are strong is likely to have more successes than the one who doesn't even attempt to make his/her wishes strong. The intelligent among you (meaning all of you!) may ask one question. 'Did you succeed in your network marketing business by making your wishes strong.?' I 'wish' you don't ask this question!

Wolf Messing - A Symbol Of Mind Power

We often read about extraordinary powers of the mind. But some of us may be skeptical about the possibility of the human mind to possess or develop supernatural powers. Though several instances of people displaying their extraordinary mental power are being reported, unfortunately, we are unable to verify the authenticity of the stories supported by endorsements of the events by other people.

Wolf Messing was born in Poland in September, 1899 in a Jewish family. He had a vision as a boy in the form of a gigantic figure. He ran away from home with 18 cents. When he was traveling in a train without ticket hiding under a seat, he was confronted by a ticket checker. Meshing passed a small piece of paper torn from a newspaper. The ticket checker “saw” it as a genuine ticket.

While working as a messenger in Berlin, he once fainted. When brought to the hospital, he was pronounced dead. But as he was being taken to the mortuary, another doctor discerned a faint heartbeat. A reexamination confirmed that he was alive. Dr. Abel, the Chief Medical Officer described  Messing’s condition as self-induced catalepsy, a state of suspended animation attained by highly trained Yogis. Messing was in this state for three days. Dr. Abel confirmed that he was a psychic.This incident was a turning point in Messing’s  life. He started giving demonstrations of his ability by going into a glass coffin and remaining in a state of self-induced catalepsy every weekend.

When he was in Vienna in 1915, Messing was invited by Albert Einstein. Sigmund Freud, the founder of Psychoanalysis was also present in Einstein’s’ house at the time of Messing’s visit.  Messing was tested by the great Freud himself. Freud gave some mental commands, which Messing faithfully carried out proving his ability to read Freud’s thoughts! One of his commands was to pull out three strands of hair from the thick moustache of Einstein, which Messing executed faithfully, albeit feeling embarrassed.

In 1927, Messing was in India where he met Mahatma Gandhi. Mahatma Gandhi gave him a mental command to take the flute from the table and give it to one of the people in the room. Messing did so. The man to whom Messing gave the flute started playing it and a cobra slithered out of a basket and began to sway to the movements of the flute. (Those who discount the theory that a cobra will be swayed by the playing of a flute will have to take this piece of information with a pinch of salt!)

Messing also met some yogis in India and he said that while he could be in the state of self-induced catalepsy for not more than three days, the Indian Yogis could be in this state for weeks together. Messing also seems to have met the Spiritual Guru Saibaba and Saibaba has also confirmed this.

Messing had predicted that Hitler would die if he invaded Russia. Angered by this open prediction, Hitler wanted Messing ‘dead or alive.’ Messing was arrested after Germany captured Poland. But Messing escaped from the Police station by making all policemen assemble in a room by giving them a mental command and then locking the room. He escaped to Russia but his family was captured and put to death by the Nazis.

In Russia, Messing met Stalin. After putting him to several tests, Stalin challenged him to enter Stalin's dacha (private residence) at Kuntsevo, which was the most heavily guarded place in the Soviet Union, with only a privileged few having had access to it. One day, Stalin was shocked to see Messing walking into his room. Messing was let in by the guards because Messing made them see him as Beria, the infamous head of the Soviet Secret Police!

Messing predicted that the world war would end on May 9, 1945 and it ended exactly on that day.  Invading Russia proved to be Hitler’s undoing as predicted by Messing.

Messing explained his power as his ability to see visual images of a specific action or place.
