Within this book, you will find the answers to many of the world’s biggest problems. Poverty, sickness, discord, loneliness, depression, frustration, and ‘bad luck’ can all become distant memories.

This isn’t a book offering mystical mumbo-jumbo, nor should you think of it as a father patting you on the back and saying “Don’t worry, it’ll all be okay” without a definite plan for making it okay.

Yes, it CAN be “made all better,” and you can see your life transformed as if by magic, but you won’t have to “step out in faith” without a good, solid reason why.

Our society has recently seen a resurgence of an ancient concept called “The Law of Attraction,” which basically says that your consciousness has the power to create change in the world around you without direct physical involvement. To many, this smacks of pseudo-science and fairy tales that fool the innocent and gullible.

Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.
— Arthur C. Clarke, Profiles of The Future
English science fiction author (1917–2008)

Nicola Tesla demonstrated many electrical devices that seemed magical at the time. The communication of sound across miles without wires was thought impossible before he demonstrated the principle of electromagnetic transmission. Modern radios, TV’s, and cell phones are based on this one scientific principle. We use the same principle to communicate with satellites in outer space.

Imagine the surprise a primitive caveman might feel upon seeing something as simple as a tape recorder, or a cigarette lighter. These things just don’t exist in his world. They aren’t possible as far as he knows. You would be just as surprised to see some common item from the 24th century.

Just because we do not now understand the scientific principles behind something does not invalidate the phenomenon. In order to learn, we must be open to the possibility that we do not yet know everything, and that something we think we know may not be true at all.

The great tragedy of Science — the slaying of a beautiful hypothesis by an ugly fact.
— Thomas H. Huxley,
English biologist (1825—1895)

Many strange things exist in our world. Things that do not fit neatly into the accepted theories of science. If we are to call ourselves intelligent beings, it’s imperative to accept the reality of what actually happens and not be swayed into thinking “it’s only superstitious nonsense,” as many scientists would try to convince you.

At one time, all intelligent people KNEW the world was flat and that the Sun revolved around the Earth. We now believe something different because new information has come to our awareness. Our current scientific understanding of how the universe works could also be proven wrong as more information comes into our awareness.

With so many people throughout history telling us that our beliefs affect the world around us, it’s high time we take a good look at what might be supporting these claims and investigate the possibility of developing a technology to put these principles into action.

This book does exactly that.

Within these pages, you will find scientific evidence supporting the claims that our beliefs affect the world around us. This evidence comes from several fields, such as quantum physics, molecular biology, medical science, and scientific research into the phenomena of faith healing, ESP, and mind over matter.

Although this book has a lot of scientific information, I’ve taken the time to write in a relaxed style so that anyone who remembers their high-school education can understand it.

The concept of faith is central to most religions. Many books have already been written about what each religion teaches regarding the power of faith, and so this book spends very little time repeating what may be found in other resources.

You will find references to other resources, allowing you to extend your study if you feel the desire to do so. In fact, I have included a special resource section in the back of this book specifically for that purpose.

All this, however, is merely to provide a starting point. After all, what good is knowing about the power of belief if you can’t do anything with it?

The majority of this book is devoted to helping you use the power of belief in your own life. You will find an easy way to discover what you believe on multiple levels, and how you can change those beliefs to support a more empowered life.

I have included many different techniques for you to use. Included here are not only the classic methods of belief change such as affirmations, visualization, hypnosis, and prayer, but also techniques from the relatively new fields of Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) and conversational hypnosis. With these, you can literally change what you believe within minutes.

You will also find in this book useful guidelines to help you get the most from your efforts. These guidelines come from my own experience using the power of belief, as well as the experiences of many others. This way, you’ll benefit from the many mistakes I and others have made and thereby have a more enjoyable time yourself.

In Chapter 7, you’ll read about several people who have used the power of belief to make changes in their lives, so you can see how to bring this together into real-life situations. As you read about how they used the power of belief, I invite you to imagine using the same power in your own life.

Helping others is a natural desire we all have. That’s why Chapter 8 is focused on showing you how to help other people change their beliefs. Even if you’re happy with your life the way it is now, you may want to read this book to learn how you may help those around you improve their lives.

There are two pathways to helping other people with their beliefs — directly and indirectly. Helping them directly may be accomplished by sharing this book and the techniques it contains with them. This pathway is familiar to most of us.

Helping someone indirectly can be realized through the way you phrase things when you speak to them. We normally do this unconsciously and with unpredictable results. By learning some techniques from conversational hypnosis, you’ll be able to take conscious control over the way you speak to others and by extension, the way you affect their beliefs.

Through all this, you will find out why so much ‘common wisdom’ is just plain wrong, what the real truth is, and how to put it to practical use. You’ll find out why it seems that the harder you work, the less successful you become. And how you can reverse the process, become immensely successful in everything you do, and have oodles of fun doing it.

You’ll find the real secret to miracles, and why there will never be “One True Religion.” In addition, you’ll find out why so many people believe the silly superstitious things they do, and why horseshoes and rabbits’ feet work for some people, but not for others.

I’m excited about the possibilities awaiting us as we begin to work together through this book. How about you?

Let’s go ahead and get started, okay?
