Taken from The Mystic Path to Cosmic Power by Vernon Howard
Impressions flow in a constant stream. The kind of impressions admitted to your mind make your life what it is.
When you reach a certain level of awareness you have the power to receive healthy impressions, the cheery and healthy ones. If negative impressions come your way, you will be able to stop them before they penetrate to make you sad or upset. Unhealthy impressions are like thieves in the night . . . leaving you poor and exhausted. You cannot stop them from trying to enter, but you can prevent them from actually penetrating. By becoming aware of them, by exposing the thieves in the night, you destroy them. It is as if you have the magic ability to dissolve a flying stone before it strikes you.
There are millions of beautiful impressions, and they are all for you. There are enough to make you a supremely happy man or woman. You need only exclude the unwanted impressions and welcome the happy ones.
Of course, this is not as easy as it sounds. I have learned the truth in this and not yet mastered the technique.
A bit of wisdom from an old bird – whatever age you are, start today.
- Notice those impressions
- Repel them ASAP
- Replace with a beautiful thought or image
