CHAPTER VII.
HOW IT WORKS.

Quit looking at things and being afraid.

Look to your ideals and desires, and remember your source and infinite supply. Keep dwelling mentally on your infinite sup-ply; keep using that supply according to your ideals. Fears will drop away from you and power and wisdom, Love, God, will flow into you and through you.

Never admit a fear. Bid it get behind you. Never admit a “can’t.’ Pull yourself together and declare “I can—I WILL.”

Fear makes you feel paralyzed. Ignore it. Rise up and ACT, and you will see how little power the fear really had. Fear is but a paltry stage-trick hypnotist. You cannot be hypnotized if you refuse to look at fear. ACT and fear flees into the bottomless pit whence it came—into nothingness.

Keep on acting as if you felt no fear. In due time the feeling of fear, the hypnotized sense, will disappear for good. You will smile, and your solar center will expand and let in more God-feeling, more power and wisdom, than you have ever had before.

Sometimes you may be too badly paralyzed to act as if you had no fear. Well, then, just breathe. You are never too paralyzed to go out doors, or to an open window, and breathe.

Right breathing will dissipate fear. By using the chest and abdominal muscles properly you can shake the kinks out of that paralyzed solar plexus and let in power. An influx of power from the Infinite will enable you to turn your back on fear and act as you desire to act.

When you are anxious and afraid your breath comes in short. shallow gasps and you can literally feel fear clutching your— “heart,” you call it. You feel fear clutch your solar plexus.

Now, take a slow, full breath, clear down to the bottom ot your lungs, and clear out as far as the walls of your chest
