Once The Secret came out, every one was discussing the law of attraction. To a few of us, we just shook our head because one law that is even more powerful than the law of attraction was missing, it is the key to the law of attraction: That law is the law of permissions.
Your authorities and rights here on earth: (Genesis 1:28) God blessed them and said to them, "Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air and over every living creature that moves on the ground."
Example of needing permission: (Job 1:6 - 12) One day the angels came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan also came with them. 7 The LORD said to Satan, "Where have you come from?" Satan answered the LORD, "From roaming through the earth and going back and forth in it." Then the LORD said to Satan, "Have you considered my servant Job? There is no one on earth like him; he is blameless and upright, a man who fears God and shuns evil." "Does Job fear God for nothing?" Satan replied. "Have you not put a hedge around him and his household and everything he has? You have blessed the work of his hands, so that his flocks and herds are spread throughout the land. But stretch out your hand and strike everything he has, and he will surely curse you to your face." The LORD said to Satan, "Very well, then, everything he has is in your hands, but on the man himself do not lay a finger." Then Satan went out from the presence of the LORD.
Another example of needing permission: (Luke 22:31) Simon, Simon, Satan has asked to sift you as wheat.
There is a law within nature known as the law of permissions. This is one of the "high laws".
The simplistic way of putting the law of permission is: You can do nothing without a permission.
In the above examples there are two given where the so called "satan" (which is hebrew for opposer) asks permission of the creator to do something. For being a liar and a thief, why does this enemy of man need to ask permission? Because it is a law and even though he might "move around like a lion seeking who to devoure", he still can't break "law".
Kim mentioned in one of her comments about how the concepts behind the secret is an excellent way to remove fears. I am hear to tell you now that permissions is the way to eliminate fears.
"In heaven above and earth below, I give permission for no one to ever harm my family."
"In heaven above and earth below, I give permission for my house to sell."
"In heaven above and earth below, I give permission for people to like me."
"In heaven above and earth below, I give permission for my money to accumulate."
"In heaven above and earth below, I give permission for those I owed (past tense) to have a zero balance for me."
Rule number one of permissions: One must exist in order for that event to trigger.
There are three states to the law of permissions.
1) Positive permission (allowing something to happen)
2) Negative permission (denying something to happen)
3) Neutral permission (neither allowing nor denying something to happen) If you have neither allowed nor denied, then it is up to anyone to do whatever they please.
A life of security:
Most people live most of their lives with their permissions in neutral. I taught the law of permission to a friend of mine. He would constantly place permissions on his car, that no harm would come to it. This by the way is an awesome way to escape accidents. He would meditate daily as he would get into his car "In heaven above and earth below, no one has permission to harm my car."
A few months into this there was a series of vehicle break-ins in the parking lot at his work. When he went out to look what he found just reinforced the law of permissions. The car to the left and right of him had windows broken and items stolen, while his car just sat there untouched.
The owners of the cars around him had neutral permissions on their cars. This was because they did not have an understanding of the law of permissions and because of this left themselves open to attack.
A life of peace:
One associate meditates on peaceful surroundings constantly to be around him. That is exactly what he has received. You can put your life at ease with the law of permissions by simply shutting off negative events from taking place. The law of permissions supercedes the law of attraction. By doing this, even if you have a minor degree of fear in you, since you are laying out a permission to stop an event from taking place you are putting a "hedge" around yourself. That is the same hedge that "satan" was giving reference to when speaking of Job. How would "God" remove the hedge? By allowing Job to become complacient in placing his permissions out there. Allowing for the fear to grow and give energy to the fear that he had.
To which he later confessed: (Job 3:25) What I feared has come upon me; what I dreaded has happened to me.
How many people can say those words. "What I feared has come upon me." That is because when you focus on something, you give it energy (where your focus is - there your energy is) and you through thought give it permission to manifest or create itself.
If you use the law of permissions to allow or disallow something from occurring every time that fear arises, than you are in control and you are shutting off any and all posibilities from occuring.
So, let's allow positives. Have you blocked yourself from becoming or doing something? "Oh I can't do that..." you just denied yourself permission. "In heaven above and earth below, I give myself permission to...." It might take a little bit of time for things to flow once the negative permissions are removed, once they do, that won't stop.
Stating a negative permission positively:
The universe works better with positives than negatives. Many times generating a negative permission is a bit of a task. The easiest way to put on in position is to state as you would a positive permission "In heaven above and earth below, I give (which is positive) no one (removing the who) and no spirit (removing the who) permission to harm my family."
So, you have positively given a negative permission in a positive manner.
If the permissions have been weakened to the point that they will easily shift, you can then state "In heaven above and earth below, I revoke/remove (negative) any permission allowing for my family to be harmed by anyone."
I can go into great length about this simple process.
My challenge to you is: Daily, start placing permissions on things. Be it to secure your life and that you feel safer at home. To drive away from you and your family influences that are negative in nature. To remove bad permissions ("I will never be loved.") and start attracting to you that which you desire.
In The Secret, a couple of speakers discuss a small part of the law of permission with out knowledge of what they are referring to. It is a shame, because the law of permission is what can stop the law of attraction from working. One is the key unlocking the gate of the other. You have to have the permission to generate the attraction.
In Heaven Above and Earth Below: The importance of starting all things with this statement is that you are calling for it to occur in two dimensions. The 4th (Heaven/Aetheral) and the 3rd (Earth). The reason many prophets of old would say "So as it is above, so it is below" is because we create first in the 4th then manifest it into the 3rd. Faith is the evidence of things unseen. We know that we have created it in the 4th and it will soon be here in the 3rd. So, when you lay out your permissions, lay them out in both dimensions, this way nothing on either side of the coin can break your permission.
(Side note: My favorite permission I ever placed was "I give permission for people to buy me a cup of coffee/tea." Go a head and laugh, I rarely have to buy coffee/tea when I am out with friends.)
