George, She's Got It!"
Legendary Broadway Play and Film Reveals the Real Secret
FFTP Network Members,
"By George, she's
In the legendary Broadway play,
and then hit movie, My Fair Lady, Professor
Higgins (played by the amazing Rex Harrison), took on a bet that he
could turn the scruffy, foul-mouthed uneducated street urchin, Eliza
Doolittle (played by the equally amazing Audrey Hepburn), into a real
There was the clean up, the wardrobe, etiquette and posture lessons,
all of the exterior changes necessary for Eliza's appearance to
resemble a lady.
But it wasn't until Eliza learned to change her words that she became
the lady. A change in her words (and how she pronounced them) produced
a change in her thoughts, then a change in her consciousness, and
before long Eliza was a true lady.
The words merely voiced and memorized did not do the trick. At first
she committed the words to memory, but it was when those words were
repeated over and over that they were accepted in consciousness. It was
then that Eliza's subconscious mind took over, produced the feeling,
and made her into the lady that was potentially within her, but had
never manifested before Professor Higgins showed her the way.
During Eliza's practice work, the Professor made her repeat over and
over, "The rain in Spain falls mainly on the plain," until her diction
was correct. And finally, after exhaustive practice, Eliza said it
correctly and the Professor announced, "By George, she's got it!"
Eliza learned that to become a real lady, she had to talk and think
like a lady.
I was reminded of the above
story and inspired to write this lesson from an e-mail conversation
with one of my students one evening.
In almost every conversation
with students when they are beginning the lessons, I notice certain
words that they tend to repeat, almost unconsciously. These are
negative words that I notice as they are speaking, and often when I
make the student aware of it, they comment that they don't even realize
they are saying the words or how often they repeat them.
One student's word may be "doubt" or "doubted." With another, it might
be "stress" or "stressed." "Struggle" and "hard" are common. The words
are spoken habitually, with no real thought behind them. These are
common, everyday words, but they are words that are not conducive to
prosperity thinking, words that only serve to create the very things we
do not want and negate the prosperity work we are doing.
A friend's "word" was very
interesting. She was divorced after raising a family and being
absent from the working world for twenty years. While giving thought to
what she wanted to do as a career, opportunities arose where she was
able to help out friends in their businesses on a temporary basis. My
friend would call me and tell me that she was helping out so-and-so at
their business, and she would casually say that it was keeping her busy
and she was "making a little money." I realized that every time my
friend mentioned the word money, she attached the word "little" to it.
When I told her about this, she seemed stunned. She didn't even realize
she was saying that word. She was completely unaware of it. When she
eliminated the phrase, she was well on her way to increased
I tell each of these students that they must eliminate these words from
their vocabulary, especially during this delicate time of shifting the
subconscious thought patterns. It is necessary to break the habit of
mindlessly and casually repeating these words, because as we have
learned, it is often the words in casual conversation that drop easily
into the subconscious mind and are accepted.
Once the habit is broken, the new positive words and affirmations that
you are learning now have the opportunity to take hold and become
substance in the mind. If you are repeating these casual negative
words, then, in essence, you are "denying what you affirm" and giving
your mind two directions, which we have learned will get you to no
destination or the wrong one.
You must saturate your speech and thoughts with the idea of what you
want and by doing so, the idea will drop into the subconscious and take
That is why I have labeled these words "delete" words. You
must delete them from your vocabulary and make them history.
Now, Will You Get
The foundation of my teachings
in my prosperity program is the powerful impact that our words--thought
and spoken, and especially written--have on our subconscious mind and
Words have more power than you realize. Our words set off forces that
create their vibratory equivalents and produce circumstances in our
lives that correspondence to our words.
We manifest according to our "dominant" words and thoughts in our
subconscious. Repetition imprints our words in the subconscious mind.
Writing words has an even more powerful effect and makes those very
claims on the Universal Mind Substance, which will return our words to
us in correlating physical circumstances.
The subconscious mind does not reason, does not know what you are
intending. It merely accepts these words as a suggestion and thinks
that is what you want. So you must learn to monitor your language and
eliminate those words that will sooner or later come back to haunt and
do their damage.
The reason my students get those amazing results and testimonials? One
reason is that I have them eliminate culprit words like this from their
Here is an excerpt
from my article, Metaphysical Marketing:
Speech. The above [success] can be accomplished only
through the use of positive and life-affirming language. Do not doubt
it for a minute. The words you think, speak, (and hear) are recorded in
your subconscious mind and will produce circumstances that correspond
to your thoughts and speech. If you want a successful business or
career, you MUST resist the habit and temptation of speaking about the
lack of business or clients or jobs. I tell my students, "If you don't
want it, don't say it." Even if you feel like you are lying to yourself
(or others), continue to speak in positive terms about your business
and affairs. As you persist in speaking successful words, your
subconscious will accept the new ideas and you will discover that the
"lies" are becoming a new and very tangible reality. But it always
first begins in mind. Never forget this.
So always remember that your
words are tremendously powerful. And don't forget the words you write.
The subconscious mind responds to repetition, so any words that you say
or write or view over and over will impact your mind. But on the other
hand, as mentioned, often our most casual words will drop into the
subconscious and produce results.
Subconscious Cannot Take a Joke
That's right. The subconscious
mind accepts our words literally. Again, it cannot reason or think.
Therefore, the subconscious mind cannot take a joke. I am certainly not
saying we shouldn't have a sense of humor. But the creative quality of
that humor puts a lot at stake and we should pay attention.
And I'm really not referring to actual "Ha Ha" jokes as much as I am to
the words that you use in everyday life.
A joke to
There was a man who had the
good fortune to be visited by a genie. The genie told him that she
would grant him three wishes only. So he was to think this over
carefully before making his decision.
For his first wish, the man asked the genie to make him thirty years
younger. Poof! The genie granted his wish, and the man was thrilled to
find that he was young again.
The man's second wish was for a brand new convertible sports car (well,
what else did you expect a young man to ask for?). And poof! Suddenly
he found himself driving a beautiful sleek and shiny new sports car.
Now the genie told the man to take his time and give much thought to
his third and final wish.
So he was driving along the coastal highway with the top down, singing
along with the radio when a commercial came on and he continued to
"I wish I was an Oscar Meyer Weiner..."
