Volume One

The first volume deals with the primary components of a narrative (story) and their relationship to prophecy and to facilitating the journey to Eden. (Volume two will deal with the characters of a narrative.) These elements, when utilized with concentrated meditative thought, can magnetize, attract, and manifest visions from the abstract world to appear in the world of matter. Using the elements of a narrative in this manner can have a very profound impact on planning one’s life. These elements can provide the framework for constructing an organized journey for leading a fulfilled and successful life, one full of health, wealth, and loving relationships. If, for example, you desired to construct your own home, you would need several things: a location, the legal requirements of the location, zoning, and a set of blueprints. Blueprints are required prior to receiving community support, the cost of construction, the location of the home on the lot, and its construction. This book illustrates the importance for understanding and living one’s theme. It also demonstrates how to discover a personal theme. It demonstrates that by using the narrative concept of theme, one can take the same great care in creating a blueprint for a life journey as in building a house. However, the ritual of using elements of a narrative can create one’s own personal prophecy based on the Law of Manifestation. What we hold in our conscious and subconscious will materialize from the abstract realm into the physical.

The book of Genesis 1:3 (KJV) provides us with insight into this law. The spoken word is the beginning of manifesting an idea or vision into a concert reality. God said, “’Let there be light.’ And there was light.” The process described is that first, God had a vision of light; and then God spoke the word that symbolized the vision; and finally, the vision materialized. The same concept is stated in John 1:1 (NASB): “In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God and the Word was God, and the Word was made flesh.” A word is a symbol for a thought or idea. Replace word with thought, and you have, “In the beginning there was a thought, the thought was with God, God was the thought, and the thought was made flesh.” What we have is the scientific process for thought to become matter. The first stage is abstract idea. The next stage is thought realized. The third stage is a symbol, spoken, written, or drawn. And the final stage is construction, materialization, or formation. Notice that thought is present in all four stages, focuses on the one concept, and maintains throughout, holding on to the original conceived thought. “Keep thy heart (or desire, thought) with all diligence, for out of it are the issues of life” (Proverbs 4:23, KJB). This simply means that what you believe will happen, will happen. Jesus Christ also said, “By your words you are justified, and by your words you are condemned” (Matthew 12:37, NASB). Many have brought either happiness or disaster into their lives by their choice of words.

The ancients believed as well as Carl Jung that certain symbols were archetypes, which contained specific characteristics that, when meditated upon, would manifest in the mediator’s life. The tarot cards symbolize these particular archetypes. Each of the seventy-two cards symbolizes a particular thought, idea, or premise. The idea is to meditate on the image of a tarot card daily until the theme of the card manifests into the world of matter. This was the original intention of tarot cards.

Just as a set of blueprints (tarot) are symbols used to transform an idea of a house into material structure, so too can a narrative, prewritten autobiography help to plan and manifest a wonderful fulfilling life. A set of blueprints will show the location of the house on a particular lot (property), how the foundation is to be set, and the types of framing and finishing materials required. The narrative process parallels the architectural process for designing, organizing, and building a life journey. The setting is the location, theme is the foundation, mission is the function, conflict is the obstacle to resolve, characteristics are the materials, the main character is the contractor/builder, and supporting characters are the various trades people needed to construct the fulfilling life. The one ingredient that must always be present, throughout the process, is focused on pure thought. The idea, vision, or thought is operating throughout the process in order to manifest the design.

In addition, expectancy in the materialized form of the idea or vision is essential for the manifestation to occur into concrete form. In this volume, we will explore the following elements, theme, mission, or basic problem to be solved; the outcome or the resolution; the setting (where and when); and the plot line, the journey or series of events between the beginning of the journey and the successful manifestation of one’s theme and mission. In volume two, we shall discuss the characteristics of the character of a story essential for successful manifestation of the mission.
