Beyond The Power Of Positive Thinking

Does positive thinking really work? What is beyond positive thinking?
Norman Vincent Peale,author of the world bestseller The Power Of
Positive Thinking,emphasized how to achieve well being, vitality,
enthusiasm and effectiveness in life.It outlined how to think
positively about your problems.

Yet there is more than just thinking positive,you need to know how to
put the positive thoughts into action, and by believing and having
faith in you own inner power, succeed in achieving what you want out
of life. Faith and positive thinking alone cannot provide fulfilment.

The acievement of everlasting fulfilment is an active process.
ACTION is necessary to defeat the daily assault of doubt, hesitation,
fear, worry, and spiritual depression; all of which block the road to
complete fulfilment. Peale said that,"Positive action, supported
strongly by belief, bouyed up brightly by love of God, cannot ever
lose the Battle of Life."

Anyway,how to use positive thinking to change your life? Do
self-affirmations work? What is the role of the law of attraction in
changing your life conditions and situations to be more successful,
prosperous and more healthy? What about reprogramming your mind on
what really want? Is happiness attainable? What are some of the
secrets of life to change your life for the better?

To answer these questions, you may find some practical insights in
reading the following transcript.

This transcript is entitled "The Power of Positive Thinking" which Larry King interviewed Bob Proctor, John Assaraf, Michael Beckwith, John Demartini and J.Z. Knight to find out the power of positive thinking and beyond. This CNN Larry King Live was aired November 2, 2006 - 21:00 [ET].

"The Power of Positive Thoughts - Larry King Live"

Category: Religion and Philosophy

LARRY KING, CNN HOST: Tonight, unhappy with your love, your job, your
life, not enough money? Use your head. You can think yourself into a
lot better you. Positive thoughts can transform can attract the good
things you know you want. Sound far-fetched? Think again. It's
supported by science.

Ahead, an hour that can change the way you think about the world and
alter your life forever. It's next on LARRY KING LIVE.

KING: Good evening.
A special edition of LARRY KING LIVE tonight; we're calling the
program beyond the power of positive thinking, how to change your
life, how to use the power of your imagination, and mine, to create
what you want in your life.

Our guests can help you do that. They are Bob Proctor, who went from
high school dropout to best-selling author. He spent the last 40 years
coaching individuals on how to attain their life ambitions.

John Assaraf, as a teenager John risked the potentially fatal
consequences of a turbulent lifestyle which could have easily landed
him in jail or the morgue. But today, he's written a "New York Times"
best-selling book and built four multimillion dollar companies.

Michael Beckwith, founder and spiritual director of the Agape
International Spiritual Center, which celebrates its 20 anniversary
this fall.

John DeMartini, the founder of the DeMartini Foundation and the
Concourse of Wisdom School, one of the world's largest personal and
professional development organizations.

And, JZ Knight, the (INAUDIBLE) member of our group is CEO of JZ K.
Inc. and author of her autobiography "A State of Mind."

We'll start with Mr. Proctor. We're calling the show the power of
positive thinking. Define that for me.

BOB PROCTOR, BEST-SELLING AUTHOR: Well, there is power to positive
thinking if you internalize it. I think there's a lot of
misunderstanding on it. People they think if they just think positive
the world's going to change.

It's not going to change. What they're going to do is heighten their
frustration because they're looking for change and it doesn't happen.
We think on our conscious mind, on a conscious level. It's our
educated mind but it's the subconscious mind that's controlling the
vibration we're in, controlling the results we're getting.

So, if the positive thinking is going to change our life, we've got to
internalize those positive thoughts, not the easiest thing to do but
you can do it.

KING: How do you harness that, John Assaraf?

JOHN ASSARAF, CO-FOUNDER, ONECOACH: I think you've got to make a
decision, Larry, you know. We've got two choices to make with whatever
the situation is. Number one, it could be negative or it could be
positive. Our choice is what makes the biggest difference in all of
the equation is making the choice to look at something positively,
even though the negative side is there. I think that's what we have to

KING: Michael Beckwith, was Dr. Norman Vincent Peale's famous book,
"The Power of Positive Thinking," was that too pedestrian?

Well, I didn't read that for a number of years. I entered into this
way of teaching because I had a spiritual awakening and began to see
that we were surrounded by a presence, an energy, a life force, call
it God, call it the divine energy.

KING: He called it God, right?

BECKWITH: Yes. And that through that immersion into that awareness I
began to see that, yes, there is power in your thinking but it's not
positive thinking. You know you could be positive that you're broke.
You can be positive that you're rich.

So it's really, I call it affirmative thinking, having an affirmative
realization that the nature of the universe is good and when you
surrender to it, when you align yourself with it, when you embody, as
Bob Proctor was talking about, as you internalize it, then your life
begins to change.

KING: You're saying, John DeMartini that this is doable?

but we do it every day because what happens is the quality of our life
is based on the quality of the questions we ask and it's not what
happens to us on the outside. It's how we ask questions and filter it
and perceive it on the inside.

And so, we have an event and we ask how is that event that we think is
so terrible, how does it serve us and how does it help us fulfill what
is really most important to our life? Then what happens is we
transform through the perception of that action into an opportunity
that we can now use as a resource for our life. KING: Where do you
learn this, Ms. Knight?

positive thinking because that would suggest that we're all negative
and the connotation of negative is that we're all bad. And it's
difficult enough to survive in the world and have self-esteem without
thinking that you have to think positive because you're already bad.

KING: What do you call it?

KNIGHT: I call it being wonderful.

KING: What's the law of attraction, Bob?

PROCTOR: The law of attraction is based on the law of vibration. The
whole universe operates by laws. Dr. Werhner von Braun said that the
laws are so precise that we don't have any difficult building
spaceships, sending people to the moon and you can time the landing
with the precision of a fraction of a second. But, attraction and
vibration are hooked together. The vibration we're in is determined by
the ideas that you're emotionally involved with.

KING: And how do you grab that, Michael?

BECKWITH: You need to have a vision for your life. Most of the time
people are concentrating on what they don't want to happen. They can
articulate it very well. "I hope this never happens to me." And when
you ask the average person they don't know exactly what they want.
They cannot describe a reality they want to live in.

Now when you begin to describe it and begin to generate those kind of
feelings that you're already living in it, the universe will compel
you into right action. You'll begin to do things differently.

KING: Dr. DeMartini, does this apply to the law of physics? Are we
talking about something that you could look it up in a book?

DEMARTINI: Yes, actually, because what happens just like in the law of
life and the law of physics, just like a magnet has two sides and if
you try to get rid of one side of the magnet, the negative side, it
keeps following you. You always have two sides. So, you have to be
able to take both sides and use them to your advantage.

KING: JZ if the day is cloudy or rainy and we're bothered by that
we're determining to be bothered by that right?

KNIGHT: Absolutely. Absolutely.

KING: We're making it. If rain ain't doing it, we're doing it.

KNIGHT: We're doing it. We are creating the nature of our reality by
what we choose, how we choose to think about our life and the outside

KING: Coming up, wouldn't you like to be excited about your day when
you wake up instead of being stressed? Find out how to make it
possible next.


BECKWITH: And from the very being, the nature of your being, you must
say "So what?" That's the strongest affirmation that you'll ever hear.
When I was quite young attending college there were two things going
on simultaneously. One, I was having a spiritual breakthrough, a
spiritual opening while, at the same time, I was ending a career in
selling marijuana.

The real miracle of living is when you're no longer intoxicated by
praise or depressed by un-appreciation.

And, I just started crying. I just started sobbing and I turned my
life over to God, surrendered my life to the universe, surrendered my
life to love, to be an instrument to bring about love and harmony and
peace, however the presence wanted to use me. My life would be
dedicated to that for the rest of my life.

And if you begin to open up through your affirmation so what! You'll
begin to move into the consciousness of what's so. So what contains
the what so.

There's a dimension of us that has never been hurt, harmed, or
endangered in any way and with intention, with practice, with love,
prayer, meditation, you can uncover that dimension of your life that
has no beginning and has no end and let it shine in this incarnation.

What is so? God has always loved you. What is so? Wholeness is inside
of your being. What is so? Infinite supply surrounds you. What is so?
It doesn't matter who's in the White House. Who's in your house? Who's
in your house? Who's in your house?



KING: We're back with this extraordinary panel and we're learning how
to make things better in our lives. We can't do better than that for

Michael Beckwith, what are some simple steps a person can do to change
his or her own life?

BECKWITH: Well, first of all, when we think about what reality is, we
think about this unified field of awareness that's everywhere that's
operating for us. So, what an individual has to do they have to begin
to have an inner talk of uplift, men of inspiration of affirmation,
begin to agree with themselves that it can be better.

KING: Every day?

BECKWITH: Every single day. It has to be a practice until that
practice becomes a way of life. KING: What do you do though, John
Assaraf, about bad events, I mean terrible events, your house burns

ASSARAF: Yes. Everything that happens to us we have a choice again of
making a decision how we perceive that and how we react to that. And
we can have our house burning right in front of us and things could be
devastating in front of us but our decision to interpret that is what
makes the entire difference and we always have that choice.

KING: That seems, Bob, like a hard thing to learn.

PROCTOR: It is a hard thing to learn. And, I was thinking as John was
talking about it, I was taking my mind back to when I was always
focused on what was wrong, the bad circumstances they dominated my
thinking. It took a long time to change it.

I had Earl Nightingale's record. I played it over and over and over


PROCTOR: Earl is a good friend. I worked with Earl for five years in
Chicago. But it was the repetition of listening to that that changed
it. That's how it was programmed in the first place. That's how it can
be changed.

I think that JZ was mentioning the secret. There's a movie "The
Secret." If a person would keep watching it over and over again they
will reprogram their mind.

KNIGHT: But also, if I may interject here, there is a beauty that
rises up in us, a greater mind that rises up in it that comes to the
surface that is all beauty and originality.

KING: Are you saying you don't have bad days?

KNIGHT: I have bad days if I decide to feel sorry for myself.

BECKWITH: When we begin to think in a particular way it definitely
overrides and transcends those genetic...

PROCTOR: Your thoughts.

KNIGHT: Absolutely.

BECKWITH: And to grow in this way simply means that we're eliminating
the filters. We're eliminating the obstructions. We're eliminating the
faulty beliefs. We're not adding anything to us whatsoever. All
spiritual growth and all growth towards success or progress is an
elimination of that which is hindering.

ASSARAF: And we are genetically wired a certain way and 50 percent of
our propensity is the way we think and behave are genetic in nature.
Then we're raised by the same people who gave us their genetics. And
so we get conditioned to believe and think and behave consistently day
in and day out. We call it a self fulfilling doom that we get into.
And the first part is awareness. The first part is awareness that I
don't have to live this way anymore. I don't have to do this anymore.
I don't have to think this way anymore and become aware of it. That's
number one.

Then you set a new vision for yourself and scientifically just the
latest brain research suggests that it takes at least 30 days of
mental reprogramming to start seeing the differentiation between your
old self and the new self.

KING: John DeMartini, one of the definitions of insanity is repeating
the same act expecting a different result. If that's true, first of
all, half the globe is insane, right? We all have done that.

DEMARTINI: Or asleep.

KING: Can you break that?

DEMARTINI: Yes. Every human being has a set of values and through
those values they filter their reality. Whatever is highest on their
value they tend to bring discipline and order to and they tend to
focus on them spontaneously, innately.

Whatever is lowest on their value they tend to have chaos around and
disorder around. And, if they're trying to set objectives that is not
really truly aligned to their highest values, they tend to self defeat
because they tend to unconsciously keep creating what's really on
their value system. So, when you set objectives, if you don't set them
congruently and aligned with your highest values, you tend to self
defeat and have negative self talk.

KING: But to change you have to want to change, right?

DEMARTINI: You have to identify and set objectives according to what's
truly valuable to you, what's truly inspiring to you, or you're
automatically going to have the feedback system called the negative
thought I think personally.

PROCTOR: I think all you have to do is become aware that you can
change. I didn't think I could change.

KING: What changed you?

PROCTOR: "Think and Grow Rich," the book and Ray Stanford, a guy that
got me to read it and he convinced me that I could do better than I
was doing. I think I believed in his belief in me. I didn't believe in
me. But he was so adamant that I could do better and he said, "Just
read the book and do what it says." And I started to read it and
that's what led me into Earl's material, one thing to another and I

KING: What did you, Michael, what changed you?

BECKWITH: Well, in terms of change one of my favorite statements is
pain pushes you until the vision pulls you. So, you grow in two ways
either through pain or through insight.

So, some people will get sick and tired of being sick and tired and
begin to make that decision, begin to articulate a vision for their
life, begin to walk in that direction.

Others will have insight, an ah-hah will happen to them and they'll
see life in a much wider perspective and then from that wider
perspective make a decision to begin to walk.

KING: Are we to blame, John, for most of the time for what happens to

ASSARAF: Are we to blame? Well, we can blame other people and that's
the easy thing to do because we can point the finger.

KING: That rat.

ASSARAF: Yes, we can just blame everybody else. There are certain
things that happen to us, Larry, that are inconvenient that we don't
like and we can put blame on somebody else or ourselves. I think we've
got to take full responsibility for our reality and how we approach
anything that happens to us.

BECKWITH: Absolutely.

KNIGHT: I agree.

PROCTOR: I don't think we're to be blamed. We're not to be blamed for
our programming but we're responsible for changing it.

BECKWITH: Absolutely. Yes, I don't like to use the word blame. No one
is to blame but ignorance.

PROCTOR: That's right.

BECKWITH: Ignorance is the only thing that is to blame. And once you
enter into he awareness of forgiveness releasing shame, blame, and
regret, you can change your life.

KING: John DeMartini, does it require brains?

DEMARTINI: You know I think...

KING: I mean you have to be smart to do this.

DEMARTINI: I think that it requires awareness.


DEMARTINI: But I think the greatest awareness occurs when we're
grateful and our heart is open.

KING: Just ahead can you really wish for your soul mate and find him?
Our panel knows how to make it happen. They'll share it with us next.


PROCTOR: You know when a person has no hope they are lost, absolutely
lost. I was losing. I was unhappy. I was sick. I was broke. I think I
was earning $4,000 a year and I owed $6,000.

For the first time I realized that I had choices. I could choose what
I wanted to do. Now it was vague and I didn't have a whole lot of
confidence in it but I was starting to know it.

It took me nine years to figure out what I had actually done to change
but I found out something interesting. Most people that are highly
successful cannot articulate on why they are.

If you don't make the hard decisions you have wasted your time coming
here. You know what the decisions are. I don't know what they are for
you but you know what they are.

Positive thinking is nothing if you don't internalize it and you don't
internalize it once. It's through repetition
It's your life. You only get one bite at the apple. If you don't treat
you right, who's going to?



KING: OK, we'll start with John DeMartini in this. How do you find the
true love of your life?

DEMARTINI: Well, I'm going to say something that's probably different
than a lot of people. But I really believe that we are actually
surrounded by it and it's either in one form, in one person, or we
diversified it to a group of people in our lives but every single...

KING: Six soul mates?

DEMARTINI: Our soul mate. Every single thing that we're searching for
we unconsciously are creating around us but sometimes if we've had
extreme pain associated with a relationship with one person we
diversify all the things that we like into people around us.

KING: You've lost your wife, right?

DEMARTINI: Yes, my wife passed away about just under two years ago.

KING: Now are you on a search?

DEMARTINI: Well, it's interesting. Six weeks before she passed away
she held my hand and she looked me straight in the eyes and she said,
"It's now time to look for another star woman, another star girl." Her
name was Athena Starwoman.

And three weeks after she passed away, I ran into a lovely woman named
Star in Las Vegas. She happens to be here today. And, if it wasn't for
her saying that, my former wife saying that, I don't think I would
have noticed it (INAUDIBLE).

KING: How do you find a soul mate, JZ?

KNIGHT: Well, a soul mate is equal to who we are, so the first thing
we have to do is fall in love with ourselves. We have to like who we
are. Otherwise, if we don't, we're going to get frequency specific
with people in our life that...

KING: Bad choices.

KNIGHT: ...reflect back to ourselves. So, first thing fall in love
with yourself. Be to you what you would love to have in another

BECKWITH: Absolutely.

KNIGHT: Then that person comes.

KING: Michael.

BECKWITH: What you're looking for you're looking with and so as you
begin, as JZ was talking about, to really fall in love with and tap
into those qualities of love and caring and generosity and kindness
and appreciation you begin to radiate those kind of qualities into
your life.

KING: Is it hard, John Assaraf, to get rid of the bad person in your

ASSARAF: Is it hard to get rid of the bad person in your life?

KING: Yes, well let's say it isn't working but you hang on.

ASSARAF: It's very, very hard. We get so accustomed to our
surroundings and our environment and the relationships that we have.
Anytime that that is a part of our life releasing that is very, very
difficult. We don't like to change our environment. We don't like to
change our environment at work. We don't like to change our
environment with our relationships. It's very, very difficult.

Anything that we get accustomed to having in our life is very hard to
let go of.

KING: We're doing things a little differently here tonight. We do have
a studio audience and we're going to take some questions. And we'll
start with Lisa, are you there?

LISA: Hi. My question is how does the law of attraction apply to
relationships because I can see how you could attract individual goals
but it's harder to see how you could visualize a specific person that
you want?

KING: Who wants to grab that, John?

PROCTOR: You shouldn't put a face on the person. See yourself with all
-- with the person with all those qualities. You're going to move into
that vibration and you'll attract them.

ASSARAF: I think it's important to understand, Larry, that, you know,
if we go back to the premise that all we are is energy and that we
will attract everything that we resonate with, so if we are focusing
on what we want in the person with all the attributes and what he or
she has and we believe with our whole heart and soul that that person
will be found and we allow the universe to do its part while we, as JZ
said, become that person filled with love and beauty that we are, we
will attract that person.

KING: Michael.

BECKWITH: I think it's clear, Lisa, also we have to define what
relationship is. And relationship is a joint participation in the good
of life or in the good of God. So, you're not going into a
relationship to get something from someone.

You're going into a relationship to be more yourself so that you're
with somebody this is the individual in which you get to -- you feel
comfortable being loving, giving, sharing, kind and forgiving. But if
you think you're going to get something from the relationship, you're
setting up a resistance there already.

KING: Why do we choose often, Bob, the wrong person?

PROCTOR: I think it goes back to what JZ said. We don't know who we

KNIGHT: We don't know who we are.

PROCTOR: And we're searching for something outside of ourselves so we
see someone and think she's pretty. He does this, you know. And so,
you know, we're looking to get something there. It's like Michael
said, it's not what you get.

It really comes back, what Stanford taught me he said, "Get to know
who you are." And he said, "And start to understand yourself and take
control over your life. And until you do that, nothing is going to
work right."

ASSARAF: It's also -- sorry, Michael. It's also a function of our self
image of ourselves so we have an image, an unconscious image of who we
are, what we believe we can attract, what we deserve, and we will look
for that match in our life as long as we don't change the internal
image in our own mind, nothing will change.

KING: When we come back, I'll reintroduce the panel.
And, what if you wish for a million bucks, will you get it? Find out
when LARRY KING LIVE returns.


ASSARAF: Your past results, OK, do not, do not represent what you're
capable of achieving. Well, from the age of 13 to about 19, I was
involved with a group of kids that spent a lot of time on the streets.
And what I really wanted to do was make money. I came from a family
who had wonderful love and wonderful environment but money wasn't
something that my family knew how to make and I wanted to live a
better life.

And, I really took myself to educating myself about what does it
really take to make money? What does it take to build a company? What
does it take to have a great life? And fortunately for me when I was
19, I found some wonderful mentors who asked me some great questions.
And so if you don't believe in your -- if you really, really, really
don't believe in your product or service, stop doing it. Stop telling
yourself a story that you've got to do it just because I need the
money. I need something to make an income.

And part of me believed them because they always told me that if you
didn't go to school, if you didn't get a degree, you couldn't get a
job. You couldn't take care of your family. So, there was something
that was nagging at me my whole life was, you know, that's what people
that I respected told me, not my parents fortunately but everybody
else said that.

To win in the game of life you've got to focus on winning the game of



KING: Our panel is Bob Proctor, John Assaraf, Michael Beckwith, John
DeMartini, and JZ Knight. JZ, you say you treat the universe as a
shopping cart and all you got to do is ask.

KNIGHT: I teach people that.

KING: Ask for $1 million and you get it?

KNIGHT: Well, what I teach people is, is that money comes as a result
of ingenious thoughts, creativity, because we're born creators, and
that when we create our day and we start out with our day and say,
"This day I will access information about the future, technology and
genius." And during that day great thoughts come that start you on a
journey of creating something of value that as a consequence of that
you get paid for it.

KING: Money follows.

KNIGHT: Absolutely.

KING: "Time" magazine had an article, "Does God Want you to be Rich?"
For several decades a philosophy has been percolating in the 10
million strong Pentecostal wing of Christianity that seems to turn the
gospels on its head. In a nutshell, it suggest that God who loves you
does not want you to be broke. It's been propelled by Joel Osteen's
four million selling book, "Your Best Life Now." Does he want you to
be rich?

DEMARTINI: Absolutely.

BECKWITH: Absolutely.

PROCTOR: Absolutely.

KNIGHT: Absolutely.


ASSARAF: But most people don't understand...

KING: What does God care?

KNIGHT: But what isn't God?

KING: Why does God care if you've got $10 or $100.

KNIGHT: Isn't that small? Isn't that cheap?

ASSARAF: I think God cares because we work with business owners...

KING: Just asking.

ASSARAF: Larry, we work with business owners all over the world.
That's what we do. And the first thing we tell them is, if you could
figure out how to serve another human being, if you could figure out
how to give them your product or your service, and figure out how to
get that to the masses and serve them and do well for them, you'll be
rewarded with riches. Why wouldn't God want every human being to be
serve another?

PROCTOR: See, the possession of money is so ridiculously out of
balance. One percent of the population has about 96 percent of all the
money. We go through school, no one teaches us how to earn money. We
don't learn at home. And we grow up with the idea you go to work to
earn money. Working is the worst way to earn money. You should go to
work for satisfaction. You provide services to earn money. You do.
Wealthy people all have multiple sources of income.

BECKWITH: The way I look at it is like this. We're here to deliver our
gifts, our talents and our capacities, and develop ourself to our
fullest potential and express ourself. Now, the universe, the power,
the presence, the love of God, whatever you want to call this
presence, wants your structures stable so that God can express more
through you.

KING: Another question from the audience from Kelsey -- Kelsey.

KELSEY: I love where I work. But I live within my means. However, each
month I'm living seemingly paycheck to paycheck. How do I value what I
earn, versus the satisfaction I get from working at a career that I'm
passionate about? PROCTOR: I don't think you should mix them up.
You're looking at your job as where you get your money. Your job is
where you get your satisfaction. Set up different ways of serving
people where you can earn money. You don't have to be there. You can
earn it while you're sleeping.

ASSARAF: You also can't look at your present circumstances and allow
it to control your thinking, because then you're going to create more
of the same circumstances. You've got to get out of that loop and ask
yourself, what I do really want to do, and then follow that.

KING: John, I came into my office today upstairs, on my door was a
vision board.

ASSARAF: We saw it.

KING: It had the kids, it had the wife, it had the job, the palm trees
for retirement. Forget the palm trees. OK.
And do you -- what are vision boards? I understand you have a story
about this, about the visualization.

Many years ago, I looked at another way to represent some of the
materialistic things I wanted to achieve in my life, whether it was a
car or a house or anything. And so I started cutting out pictures of
things that I wanted. And I put those vision boards up. And every day
for probably about just two to three minutes, I would sit in my desk
and I would look at my board and I'd close my eyes. And I'd see myself
having the dream car and the dream home and the money in the bank that
I wanted and the money that I wanted to have for charity.

Five years later, my one son Keenan (ph) came up to my office and he
sat on the boxes and said, you know, Daddy, what's in the boxes? And I
said, they're my vision boards, and they've been in those boxes for
five years. And so he didn't understand. So I pulled out one of the
vision boards, after opening up the box, and there was a nice car and
another little trinket that I wanted to buy. And when I opened up, or
pulled out the second vision board, there was a picture of the home
that I was living in right now, that I had been living in for a year,
had renovated it, and didn't even know -- I swear to...

PROCTOR: He phoned me. He phoned me within two or three minutes of
that. I saw it on the board.

ASSARAF: The house that I live in.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: We teach to do that, draw on a piece of card what
it is you want to manifest, and simply look at it and be present with
it. That's called creating a time trial to the future.

DEMARTINI: Our innermost dominant thought becomes our outermost
tangible reality. When I was 17 years old, I almost died. I lived on
the North Shore of Oahu in a tent. And I had the opportunity to meet
Paul Brag (ph), who's an amazing teacher who's 93 years old. And he
told me to write down my dreams -- not only for myself, but my family,
my community, my city, my state, my nation, and my world -- and write
it for at least 100 years. Today, all of these years, 34 years, I've
been master planning my life and one of the things that I actually
dreamed of doing is sitting here facing you, saying what I'm about to
say. So I know that it works.

KING: If one of you have a vision board with my picture on it, I'll go
to break.

Still ahead, can you make yourself healthy or just stop smoking just
by thinking about it? Find out more after this break.

DEMARTINI: One day leaving this health food store, I saw a little
flyer on a door, special guest -- guest speaker, Paul C. Brag, Sunset
Recreation Hall, North Shore of Oahu.


DEMARTINI: The quality of your life is based on the quality of the
questions you ask. And ask questions inside, pull them out of you.
What do you really love to create in your life?


DEMARTINI: And that night, I don't know how to describe it, it's just
something came over me and I said, I know what I want to do. I want to
become like this gentleman. I want to travel the world. I want to
dedicate my life to the study of universal laws, as he was talking
about, and I want to become a great teacher and philosopher, and step
foot in every country on the face of the earth and share my research
findings with people.


DEMARTINI: Because if you don't plant the flowers in the garden of
your mind, everybody, you're going to be pulling weeds out from
everybody else's.


DEMARTINI: And he said to me, every single day from the rest of your
life, say I am a genius and I apply my wisdom. Now here I sat there,
I'm a genius, I'm thinking, there's no way I'm a genius. So I said it
over and over again. And he made me say it until I had my eyes closed
and my body was congruent with it. And he patted me on the shoulder
and says, you never miss a day for the rest of your life.

And that was the beginning of a journey of teaching, healing and
philosophy. I went on to be a scholar in school, I went premed honor.
I ended up being a chiropractic because I love the power and
philosophy of chiropractic. And it was just the most amazing thing,
because it believes the power inside us is what heals


DEMARTINI: If you're going through life and you want to create an
amazing life, you better have a vision that far exceeds that. You want
perpetuity, you want a foundation that goes beyond it, you want a
vision that goes beyond it. There is an immortal calling in all of us
to do something magnificent with our life, that's way bigger than our
mortal body can see.



KING: We're back.

J.Z., can you remove an illness just by thinking about it?

KNIGHT: Yes. I was a heavy smoker, and I was developing emphysema.
Most women like to smoke, most people that I knew did. And I went and
got a CAT scan, and when I saw the CAT scan of what my lungs were
doing, I knew I wasn't going to be alive very much longer.
And so I simply said, I'm going to go live somewhere in my brain where
I have always been well. And in that moment, I simply moved what I am
to a different neuronet in my brain.

KING: How, Michael, do we form the habits we have?

BECKWITH: Just doing something over and over and over again,
oftentimes unconsciously.

KING: But why would we do it, even if we don't like it?

BECKWITH: Well, it goes back to what we were saying at the earlier
part of the show. You have genetic programming and then you an
environmental influence. So you end up copying what you see around

DEMARTINI: And many times the very thing we're doing that we're trying
to get rid of, unconsciously, we have associations of benefits. We
underlying benefits that we're actually...

KING: How about those thing, though, Bob, like, drug addiction?

PROCTOR: Well, drug addiction is -- it's a habit. And it can be
changed. No, it can be changed. Many people change it.

KING: A habit that becomes a need.

PROCTOR: Millions of people change it, so it can be done. Millions
don't but there is millions that...

BECKWITH: Individuals that are addicted oftentimes are looking for
something that they're finding temporarily, in a counterfeit way,
through that drug or through that momentary high. And your brain can
produce that without the drug.

PROCTOR: See, I think the problem goes back -- we don't know ourself.
We can go right through our educational system, the best schools in
the world, and come out and know virtually nothing about ourself.

ASSARAF: There's really two parts of our brain, One is the conscious
mind,, which we now know is only responsible for only two to four
percent of our behaviors. So we could have the desire, the want, the
need, the passion for change, but there's another side of our psyche,
the nonconscious mind, that we now know controls 96 to 98 percent of
our conditioned way of doing, being, seeing and behaving every single

So you can have the desire, but you this program running at a
nonconscious level that's going to keep you at your status quo,
whether you're a drug addict, whether you're broke. That's why most
people, Larry, who win the Lottery, for example, 86 percent of them
give away all the money, is because they are conditioned at a
nonconscious level to be broke. Their self-image and their self-worth
is going to dictate their self-wealth. And that, by the way, I heard
from this great guy, John DeMartini. He's absolutely right.

PROCTOR: If we're coaching people to change, we have them in a 13
month program.

KING: Does rehab work?

DEMARTINI: It all depends. I go back to the value system because the
hierarchy of one's values dictates their destiny. And so if they have
an unconscious motive and unconscious value to continue doing
something, all the comments to them really don't mean anything. They
have to have an unconscious drive to accomplish what they want to do.
And so what I do, and I have people that are so-called label addicts,
I go in there and ask them all the benefits that they're getting out
of it and bring the unconscious conscious first. And when they
discover 100 benefits that they're unconsciously getting out of being
the drug addict, it blows their mind to realize why they're really
doing what they're doing.

KING: Michael, what causes relapse?

BECKWITH: Exactly what he's saying here. The benefits, the temporary
benefits of getting that momentary high. They haven't yet seen

KING: You miss it, so you want it?

BECKWITH: They're craving, the body, the mind, the chemicals that are
being produced. They don't quite understand that those chemicals,
those endorphins can be produced from a sense of connection.

KING: But we're in a drug conscious society. Look at all of the legal
drugs to stop your pain, make you feel better, do this, do that.

ASSARAF: Absolutely.

DEMARTINI: A pill for every ill. KING: A pill for every ill.

ASSARAF: We've got the best pharmacy in the world, right here, in our

KNIGHT: It's true.

ASSARAF: No pharmacy can compare with the human mind.

PROCTOR: There's a genius system built within us to keep us in
excellent working order if we were to understand it. Understanding is
the key.

ASSARAF: We become addicted to the emotions.

KNIGHT: We are addicted to our emotions. That's the greatest addiction
there is.

PROCTOR: You did your show a little while ago. I was watching where
you had the fellow on that took Proverbs over 31 days.

KING: Yes, Solomon.

PROCTOR: Yes, well. What did Solomon say? He said, in all your
getting, get understanding. And the opposite of understanding is doubt
and worry. The only way to get understanding is to study, there's no
other way to get it.

KING: We'll be right back. And just ahead, what are you doing that
prevents your own happiness?
Don't go away.

KNIGHT: So I sort of grew up and I -- knowing every day that if I
prayed to God, that everything that I asked for would always get taken
care of. I just thought everybody did. As I grew into a mature woman
and got married and had children, I just went on my destiny knowing
that there was something big could happen in my life.


KNIGHT: This day I love God. This day, the wisdom and love of God
shines through me. It is my reality. I say that all of the time.


KNIGHT: All these years, it has been to help people to understand,
first off, that they're divine, the capacity is inside of them to do
marvelous things, are innate in them, that things that happen to them,
it is not things happening to them, but the source leaking out of


KNIGHT: All of this, is spiritual because spirit is thought. It's the
intangible ghost of reality that reality comes from. (END VIDEO CLIP)

KNIGHT: And in creating your day, the first thing you have to say is,
that I'm wonderful, I'm filled with wonder. I am my greatest mystery.
And this day what I say will manifest and I will experience the wonder
of myself.


KING: We're back.

What a show tonight. We promise to do more on this.
Let's take another question from our audience. And start with Valerie.

VALERIE: Hi. I'm self-employed and staying focussed and clear- headed
about all my goals, both professionally and personally, can be really
challenging. What's your advice for staying positive and patient with
so much uncertainty in my professional life?

BECKWITH: It comes down to your practice. Everything that we've talked
about here, it comes down to the word practice, that you begin to
develop the habit of doing something every single day in your life.
Describe your life and how it's going to be. Begin to tell yourself
that life is for you and not against you. Begin to be aware that
there's something trying to emerge through you right now.

Since you are an infinite being and you're here to progress, there is
always something trying to emerge for you right now. So you're not
sitting around waiting for the New Age. You're on the new edge.
Something is trying to happen.

KNIGHT: And you're wonderful. And everything that you think matters.
So you're worries matter. So what you have to do, you have to get up,
first thing in the morning and create your day, and say this day, I'm
a genius. Not only am I a genius, I create a new reality that is
fulfilling and without worry. All day long.

BECKWITH: Practice.

KING: OK, another audience question. And this one is from Bonnie.

BONNIE: I's like to know how do you change a negative perception of an
aging body and mind into a positive acceptance of the same age and
body and mind?

KING: You are what you feel?

DEMARTINI: Well, you know, I think we're blessed because as we mature,
our eyesight tends to get a little bit weakened and our hearing tends
to go. So I think what the universe has done is make sure that we
can't see what we see in the mirror. So the best thing to do is honor
your sight as it starts to fade and you can appreciate what it does.
No, but every single day it is wise to concentrate on what you do love
about yourself, instead of focussing on what you don't.

KNIGHT: May I ask you tomorrow morning, if you want to be 30 years
younger, your genes, here everything you say...

BECKWITH: Absolutely.

KNIGHT: ... you have a code for your entire attitude. When you wake up
in the morning and decide, today, I am going to be 30 years younger
and fabulous. And if you do that, you start creating proteins in your
self that replicates that attitude.

KING: Wow.

PROCTOR: Quakers have a saying, pray and move your feet. I think what
you've got to do is get out and exercise. I went over to a gym, a guy
named Eli Palmer (ph), he took a look at me and he said, you're just
going keep getting bigger and bigger and bigger around the waist. And
I started to work with the guy, get up at 5:00 in the morning, I'm in
the gym at 6:00 in the morning and work for an hour. I taken three
inches off my waist.

KING: You're all saying happiness is attainable?

PROCTOR: Absolutely.

BECKWITH: Happiness is the natural state of our being.

KNIGHT: It is a natural state of being, without fear. Without fear.


ASSARAF: It's not condition based.

DEMARTINI: I think when we're authentic with our true values, we have

KING: One more audience question from Bernie -- Bernie.

What is the best way to retain a positive attitude while investing in
a volatile stock market?

PROCTOR: Quit investing in the volatile stock market.

KING: Don't do it.

PROCTOR: And don't do it. Change your behavior.

ASSARAF: Even if you're investing in a volatile stock market, you've
got to keep one thing in mind, and that's not the stock market. It's
your perception of the stock market. There are people who invest in
volatile stock markets that don't get affected emotionally by it.

BERNIE: Right.

ASSARAF: And so if they don't get emotionally affected by it, then
it's not the stock market. It's the individual's perception of the
stock market. So when you change the way you look at something, the
thing you look at will change.

KNIGHT: Remember, you create reality. You have it in you.
Consciousness and energy creates reality. What you think matters. Your
opinions help to affect the whole and your eventual outcome in

DEMARTINI: If the stock market goes up, you're paying more dollar per
stock share. If it goes down, you're getting it for less. So there's
blessings on either side. Knowing that both of them are valuable and
staying long-term with it.

KING: I got to get a break.

But Michael, do affirmations work?

BECKWITH: Affirmations definitely work. They help you keep your
attention, allowing that kind of energy to flow. They're not going to
make something happen, but they make something welcome.

KING: Ahead in our final segment, how you can jumpstart your new life.

Stick around for more of LARRY KING LIVE.


KING: We're back with our final moments with our outstanding panel.
We're going to do more of this and we just brought up a good topic.
I just said the air conditioner's not working in here.

BECKWITH: And now it is.

KING: And that bothers me. And you said, live with it. Right?

BECKWITH: No, I said I'm cool. And now it's working.

KNIGHT: We know how to create a reality.

KING: You just got cool.

KNIGHT: Come to class, Larry.


KING: You've all written books, right?


KING: Is that the best way for anyone watching to jumpstart, read one
of the books? I mean, what is -- how do we...

PROCTOR: I think the best way to start is get a CD or a DVD and
play it over and over and over again.

KING: By one of you?

PROCTOR: Well, the best one -- the best thing I have seen in 45 years,
Larry, is the DVD "On the Secret". To get it, go to It
was made out of Australia. It is the best thing I have ever seen done
in this industry.

KNIGHT: I think you would be very simple -- everybody gets up and
says, what kind of life I do want from this day forward? And I'm going
to write it down and I'm going to say this is who I am.

BECKWITH: Absolutely.

KNIGHT: To say, this is who I am. And negotiate your day through what
you said. That's how you start.

ASSARAF: If anybody wants to have more, whether it's a business,
whether it's more money, they have to become more. And the only way to
do that, OK, first is to educate yourself. And our society has gotten
lost in teaching children how to memorize. Education is when we learn
something, we get instructions on how to do something, and then we
experience it. That's really the education that we want. And so that
for me is pick a lane, pick something that you can choose, to move
your life forward to the next level.

PROCTOR: There is three of us, Dr. Martini, Michael Beckwith and
myself, are going to working together next week -- is it two weeks --
at PSI Seminars. I don't own the company, but it is the best course
I've ever seen. And it is all up and down the West Coast, it's in
different parts of the world.

KNIGHT: Our course is the best course I've ever seen.

PROCTOR: Well, I think the program that...

DEMARTINI: All of our courses are outstanding.

KNIGHT: All of our courses are fabulous.

DEMARTINI: My mother said to me, when she was putting me to bed when I
was four years old, she said, son, before you go in the dream world,
be sure to count your blessings, because those who are grateful for
that they have, they get more to be grateful for. And I always say
that that's the best way to start each day and end this day is in the
state of gratitude.

BECKWITH: I'd like to say something about that. I absolutely agree
that it's so powerful. The enlightened give thanks for what most
people take for granted.

As you begin to be grateful for what most people take for granted,
that vibration of gratitude makes you more receptive to good in your

KING: J.Z., isn't change the hardest and most feared thing we do?

KNIGHT: It is the most feared thing that we do because we're afraid of
reprisal as a result of it. But change is a natural order of our
being. We are creating reality every day. We're here to make known the
unknown. It is innate in us, it's a part of our mechanism, it's a part
of how our brain works. It's what we do best, but it's in a society
that doesn't celebrate that.

PROCTOR: And change is inevitable, but personal growth is choice.


BECKWITH: But we are here to change. We are here to grow, develop and

unfold. We are progressive beings that have infinite capacity.

KING: But we all fear it.


BECKWITH: We do until embrace the fact that we are here to grow. So
that you say, how you to jumpstart? You wake up every day and you want
to be different at the end of the day. You don't want to be the same
person you go to bed at night. You want to have had an insight and a
haha, you want to have done a new action. You would have said
something new, so that you want to see yourself changing and becoming
more yourself on a regular basis.

DEMARTINI: I was -- I had the opportunity to speak for Mary Kay Ash
(ph) many years ago. And I had the opportunity to interview and chat
with her afterwards. And I said, Mary, if there's any advice you could
give me -- I was in my 20s at the time -- for me in my life, what with
a you say?

And she said every single morning before you get and start your day,
to sit down and write down the seven highest priority actions you
could do today, because whoever sets the agenda brings the destiny
about. And I started doing that. And I started compiling a list of the
things that were truly important to me. And I noticed I increased the
probability of those happening in my life just because I concentrated
and I took...

KNIGHT: And we do them every day. We do that every day. I do that
every morning.

DEMARTINI: At the end of the day, be grate grateful for all the
different things that you accomplished. Those two things make a huge


PROCTOR: ... taught me the same thing. He said six things, same

BECKWITH: Awareness. Awareness. Choice is a function of awareness. And
he's just described how you build your awareness.

KING: You have been an outstanding panel. I hope to do this again. I
learned a lot of secrets about life here tonight. We hope everybody
takes advantage of them.

Our guests have been Bob Proctor, John Assaraf, Michael Beckwith, John
Demartini and J.Z. Knight.

And our subject has been "Beyond the Power of Positive Thinking: How
to Change Your Life".

We hope we've helped you.

Good night.

sending people to the moon and you can time the landing with the
precision of a fraction of a second. But, attraction and vibration are
hooked together. The vibration we're in is determined by the ideas
that you're emotionally involved with.
