Unwelcome thoughts: It is useless for the sincere Student to say, think, or feel that he cannot govern his thought and feeling. I assure you that at first it does take determined watchfulness; but it must be done, and there is no getting away from it. If strangers began to open the door and pass through one’s home unannounced and unwelcome, I am sure it would not be long until the individual locked the door and, if necessary, placed a notice outside that only those invited might enter, and none without being announced. The same principle can be applied in governing the mental world or world of thought. We can place the sign outside of the Magic Circle of our active Life, just as tangibly as we can place it on the outside of the door of our home.
The Student can say with full authority: “God! My Mighty Presence, surround me with Thy Mighty Magic Circle, that naught unlike Thee may find entrance at any time. See that this is sustained without a break anywhere; and with Thy Invincible Power and Wisdom, enable me to govern and qualify eternally all thought and outer action with Thy Full Dominion.”
~~The I AM Discourses, Volume 4 Ascended Master Instruction, 1932
“Mighty I AM Presence”! I thank Thee for all the money that comes into my hands and use or that touches my world! I accept it as Thy Messenger of Love and Balance! Charge it with Thy Purity, Love and Blessing without limit; and see that it brings only Thy Freedom and Perfection everywhere in the world.”
