“THE SUCCESS OF A PHYSICAL LIFE IS BEAUTIFUL, MOST WORTHY, BUT THE PERFECTION YOURSELF IS A THOUSAND TIMES MORE VALUABLE THAN ALL THE WEALTH YOU CAN ACCUMULATE ABOUT YOU.” Saint Germain
Enlightenment is possible during your lifetime. Self Mastery is the ultimate purpose for life. You are blessed with the co-creative ability and freedom to create your life the way you want.
For a powerful breakthrough:
Go to a place or environment where you feel free, undisturbed and inspired. Take out a piece of paper and at the top of the page in the center, write, “My Qualities.” Then, under “My Qualities,” draw a line to the bottom of the page. On the left side at the top write “Weaknesses” and on the right side at the top write “Strengths.”
Take a few deep breathes in through your nose and out through your mouth. Let everything go and relax. Start with any of your weaknesses or negative qualities and write each one down on the list on the left. Observe any pattern, behavior or quality you have and write them down. Be sincere and do not judge yourself. Be honest and acknowledge what is. Be courageous and tell the truth about yourself. When you are complete review your list. Write down every weakness or negative quality so your are complete.
Take a few more deep breaths in the same manner. Let everything go and relax. Then look at and observe your strengths or positive qualities and write each one down on the list on the right. Acknowledge any positive quality, behavior or pattern about yourself. Go total. This is a time for absolute honesty and for revealing everything. This is not a time for modesty, it is a time for total truth.
For each list, you may notice that you run out of qualities to describe yourself. If you think that you have listed all of your qualities, give it a few minutes and you may find that some more qualities come to mind and flow out in little streams of creativity. For both set of qualities, allow yourself a little additional time when you think you are done and see if anything else reveals itself. Do not force this process. Let it flow, there is no right way to do this process.
This is your Self Inventory. When your lists are complete, objectively review your weaknesses and ask yourself if your negative qualities have increased or decreased in intensity or quantity over the past few years, 5 years, 10 years, etc. You may be quite surprised.
Then review your strengths and do the same thing. Have they increased or decreased in intensity or quantity over the years? Then look at both sides of your list and see what you see. Acknowledge the truth about your patterns of behavior and qualities. This is where your life is right now. These patterns determine your success in your life and relationships.
Do you have preferences regarding your strengths and weaknesses? Do you judge yourself for any of them? Does judging, criticizing or making yourself wrong help you grow, improve or feel better? Could you be any different than you are right now? What would happen if you suspend your judgment and criticism and just be an observer, like an anthropologist studying a species?
Every human being has both positive and negative qualities or strengths and weaknesses. The key is to allow yourself to be the way you are. Stop judging yourself and wasting precious time and energy. Just by noticing a negative behavior and letting it be the way it is allows it to unwire itself and fade away. Do not judge or resist it. Judging or resisting your own behavior is like adding gasoline to a fire. It makes it grow stronger. When you stop adding energy to a negative pattern of behavior and just acknowledge or observe it, the pattern completes itself.
These patterns of behavior determine the true quality of your life, health, relationships and true success. By having the courage to acknowledge the truth you now make clear, conscious choices about you, your life and career and where you want to go. Before you can set and achieve any goal, you need to know where you are – your starting point. Sometimes you must release or eliminate the old to create a vacuum for the new.
Consciously review your strengths and weaknesses and see where you specifically need to focus your time and energy to neutralize and even eliminate your key weaknesses that sabotage your well being, relationships and success.

From “Open Your Mind to Prosperity” by Catherine Ponder:
You cleanse your mind for prosperity and attract your good by first writing out what you want to eliminate from your life. By writing out what you want to eliminate, you open the space and create a vacuum for what you want to manifest. Just like planting a victory garden, you clear and weed the soil so it is clean and fertile before planting your highest quality seeds and plants (dreams and desires).
If you want to be prospered, healed and have your prayers answered, you must clean up and clean out your life. It is said that God (as divine law) withholds the next development until order is first established in the present situation.
After you write out your elimination list, the next step to cleanse your mind for prosperity is by practicing forgiveness. Holding grudges and negative feelings toward others, or toward yourself blocks your own prosperity. Until you practice forgiveness, your true prosperity will not come.
When you hold resentment toward someone of something, you are bound to that person or condition by an emotional link that is stronger than steel.
The practice of forgiveness is the only way to dissolve that link and be free.
The word forgive means “to give up or let go.” Forgiveness is a pleasant inner act that leaves you at peace with yourself and others. Forgiveness is also a constant process. It needs to be done on a regular basis with any negative feelings toward people or conditions. Along with declaring that you forgive other people, declare that they also forgive you. Also release situations or conditions you have been unable to resolve.
A good formula is to forgive your enemies and release your friends. Forgive the people you hate or resent. Release the people you love. Remember that you never lose anything that still belongs to you by divine right, through the act of emotional release. Instead, you make way for your good to manifest in grander ways than ever before.
“I now let go of worn out things, worn out conditions, and worn out relationships. Divine order is now established and maintained in me and in my world.”
“All that has offended me, I forgive. Within and without, I forgive. Things past, things present, things future I forgive. I forgive everything and everybody who can possibly need forgiveness in my past and present. I forgive positively everyone. I am free and all others are free, too. All things are cleared up between us, now and forever.”
To create your game plan for what you want, it is wise to eliminate any negative pattern or what does not work for you. How can you fill a cup that is already full?

Nature abhors a vacuum. To manifest something in your life, clean out your closets first. Let go of any clutter in your life. “Cleanliness is next to Godliness.”
Look at the clothes in your closet, the friends and business associates in your life and the environments you live and work in. Check out your garage and car too! What’s in your trunk?
Take a good look at your beliefs, values, attitudes, self-talk and patterns. Clean out the cobwebs of your mind. Let go of any old, limiting beliefs and patterns.
Release anything that no longer represents you or the person you truly want to be. Simply let it go and give it away, have a yard sale. If you haven’t worn it or used it in two years, give it away. If people in your life do not support and nurture you, send them your love and best wishes and let them go. This should be done with love, kindness and good will.
Take an honest self-inventory and clean out your closets, your wallet of old pictures or old information, your computers, cell phones, relationships, etc. and create a vacuum for nature to fill with wonderful, new blessings. Let go and let God!
How can you attract a new relationship when you drag around an old one that does not work for you? How can you attract a new wardrobe when there is no room left in your closet or drawers to put them? How can you attract a new job or business opportunity when you have old, negative patterns and beliefs blocking the way?
Ships must be taken out of the sea to scrape the barnacles off their hulls. Plants, shrubs and trees are trimmed and pruned to foster new growth and beautiful flowers. Cleansing is a natural part of life.
Cleansing takes place in all areas, spiritually, mentally, emotionally, physically and financially. It happens in your health, your relationships, your career, your home and your office. The human body needs to detox and cleanse regularly. Clean out your attitude!
By letting go of the old, you make way and create a vacuum for the universe to send you what’s new – your highest and best, under grace and in perfect ways.
“I now let go of worn out things, worn out conditions and worn out relationships. Divine order is now established and maintained in me and in my world.”
