This volume of affirmations was written by popular demand. It is a sequel to The Game of Life and How to Play It, where the listener will find the principle more fully explained.
Man's word is his wand filled with magic and power!
Jesus Christ emphasized the power of the word; "By thy words thou shalt be justified and by thy words thou shalt be condemned", and "death and life are in the power of the tongue."
So man has power to change an unhappy condition by waving over it the wand of his word. In the place of sorrow appears joy, in the place of sickness appears health, in the place of lack appears plenty.
For example: A woman came for a treatment for prosperity. She possessed just two dollars in the world.
I said: “We bless the two dollars and know that you have the magic purse of the Spirit; it can never be depleted; as money goes out, immediately money comes in, undergrace in perfect ways. I see it always crammed, jammed with money: Yellow bills, green bills, pink checks, blue checks, white checks, gold, silver and currency. I see it bulging with abundance!” She replied: “I feel my bag heavy with money,” and was so filled with faith that she gave me one of her dollars as a love offering. I did not dare refuse it and see lack for her, as it was important that I hold the picture of plenty. Shortly aferwards she was made a gift of 6000 dollars. Fearless faith and the spoken word brought it to pass.
The affirmation of the magic purse is very powerful, as it brings a vivid picture to the mind. It is impossible not to see your purse or wallet filled with money when using the words, “crammed, jammed.”
The imaging faculty is the creative faculty and it is important to choose words which bring a flash of the fulfillment of the demand.
