Wisdom from Stephanie Kathan

One of the most important things I’ve learned from life, is that I’m a powerful creator… and so are you.

Our creative power is alive in our imagination. When you imagine the worst, you create the emotion of worry. When you imagine the best, you create the emotion of hope. We do this all day long, or emotions and imagination working in tandem, most of us never even realizing it.

Every time you say “I AM,” you are using your imagination as you declare the image of what you believe yourself to be in that moment, and then you experience it, usually adding “see I told you!” somewhere in the conversation.

One of the most profound lessons I’ve learned is from Dr. Wayne Dyer. He said, “Don’t add any words after ‘I Am’ that you don’t want to experience.” This shift in thinking alone is a complete life changer. The conversations we have with ourselves and others are mostly formed from habit. When you change how you talk to yourself, you change how you feel about yourself… the result is changing your beliefs about yourself.

You deserve to live the life you want to live, just because you want it, but you won’t ever experience it if you don’t believe you can have it… and when you say I can’t, I’m not good at that, I’m broke, your language is communicating doubt… not belief….Continue reading at

Yogananda mentions a story "the wishing tree"

part of it here:

"My great master, Swami Sri Yukteswar, often used the foregoing story to illustrate that we are all living in this world beneath our all-desire-fulfilling wishing tree of will power. Our will, being a reflection of the Almighty Divine Will, has in it the seeds of almighty power.

Most people rejoice if, as the result of a continuous use of will power in an unknown past life, they suddenly succeed in this life. But if most people suddenly reap evil consequences, they forget that they created such consequences by the continued misuse of their own almighty will power in an unknown past. When standing beneath the almighty wishing tree of your will power, always be careful to wish for good things and not to concentrate upon fears, failures, or diseases. The consequences of your negative wishes might suddenly loom out of the unseen and cause you unending troubles.

Remember, you were born beneath the boughs of the wishing tree of high achievements. You must not think evil thoughts because such thoughts will bring you nothing but harm. Since you are living under the invisible wishing tree of the divine will, always use your will power to learn of God and attain Self-realization. In this way you will forever quench the thirst of any unspiritual desires."
