The Hope-Givers Foundation:
The Laws of God


I want to give you a starting point, a Hope-Givers Foundation of principles and laws to apply regardless of your profession or business. I believe that God set up certain Laws of Creation that operate continually around us. If you work in harmony with them, you receive the benefits. If you work at cross purposes with them, you may succeed for a while but sooner or later it will catch up with you. It’s like working against the Law of Gravity, sooner or later it catches up to you.

The scriptures say that God gives “Riches and Honor”. When we operate life’s principles the right way, we get riches and honor. People really don’t understand the devastation that is going on in their lives when laws and principles are broken. They count it as bad luck or just the way life is, but in Proverbs 10:22 it says, “The blessing of the Lord it maketh rich, and he addeth no sorrow with it,” this is God’s design.


Law of Permission

While it may seem strange to start with something called “The Law of Permission” let me assure you that this is where you must start as a Hope-Giver or you will waste valuable time. The reason for this is that the scriptures talk about the mind and the heart being two separate entities, but working together. Not understanding this concept will result in wasted time and effort as you spend years fighting against yourself and not even know it.

For a more complete presentation on this topic go to: http://www.EmbraceorErase.com and under the “Start” menu listen to Session 1 – “The Fortress of Your Mind” from my class on “The 6 Pillars of the Prosperous Mind” and you will receive the whole story on exactly how this works.

The Law of Permission says that the mind and the heart must be in harmony in order to truly accomplish anything in life.You see, the mind is where our free will thoughts originate. With the mind we can originate thought, change thoughts, evaluate, calculate and make decisions. Our wants, wishes and desires, all start with the thoughts in our mind.

This is where people hold their affirmations and that’s a good thing, it’s always a good thing to think positively. But that’s only the beginning. Here is the problem; any thought in the mind MUST be in harmony with the core beliefs stored in the heart before we will give it permission to become a reality in our lives. Core beliefs are those beliefs that we have accepted as true above all else and they govern all decisions that we make (see session 1 of “The Six Pillars” class listed above)

Proverbs 4:23 says “Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life.”

Core beliefs are built in our hearts and they become the rudders of our lives. No matter how much we desire to sail out into the open sea, if our core beliefs are not in harmony with that vision, they will steer us to the rocky shoals every time.

I constantly hear people say, “I wanted this so badly and I really worked hard to get it, why didn’t it happen?” Most of the time it isn’t outside influences that caused the ship wreck, it was their own internal belief which never gave them permission to succeed no matter how much they thought (in the mind) they could have it.

Once you realize The Truth about the mind and the heart you must ask yourself:
1. How did these core beliefs get there
2. How can I change my core beliefs to work for me

I would again refer you to the first session of my class, “The 6 Pillars of the Prosperous Mind” which is open to the public to listen to at: http://www.EmbraceorErase.com under “Start” on the navigation bar. To explain it all here would double the size of this report and that’s not necessary because the information is already on the site. So the first step for a Hope-Giver is to make sure that the mind and the heart are in harmony on all areas of life so you will have permission to move ahead.

One of the most amazing realizations people have while in my coaching group, is when they finally give themselves permission to prosper. They have the same jobs, the same life but everything starts working for them rather than against them.

One of the greatest discoveries you can make in life is to honestly identify your core beliefs and change the ones that no longer benefit you. Once you do this, your life will never be the same. How do you do this? II Corinthians 13:5 says, “Examine yourselves whether you be in the faith…”

The word “examine” means “to pierce to see what is on the inside”. And the word “faith” means “the right way of believing”. So we are to look inside, deep inside to the heart and see what is there and determine if it is the right way of believing. If not, we then go about changing those beliefs by first letting them go and replacing them with a new belief. Check out the free material on my wife’s site http://www.EmbraceorErase.com and you will understand this process very quickly.

Hope-Mongers know by experience that most people sabotage themselves because of their conflicting beliefs. A Hope-Giver who understands this law will not only use it to help themselves but will share it with other Hope-Seekers so they too can rid themselves of damaging core beliefs and give themselves permission to succeed.
