Think Positive, says Hazel Courteney : it could completely change your future.
Just five days to go to the Big M. Will the Y2K bug cause chaos? Will there be a run on the banks,and will people storm the shops and panic-buy, fearing the worst might happen at the stroke of midnight? I believe not. Our cumulative thoughts and the actions resulting from them over the past 1,000 years have created the world we live in today. And these same criteria will determine what happens in our many possible futures.
Back in 1994, 1 saw a fascinating interview with Dr Beverly Rubik, who was the director for frontier sciences at Temple University in Philadelphia, in which she stated: “Our research shows a significant relationship between what we intend in consciousness and what we experience. If our intention is not clear, the results we get will be muddled by deeper, unconscious inclinations that may even work in the opposite direction. But when we do have a clear intention for something to occur and it is not blocked by contrary subconscious thinking, or a feeling that we don’t deserve it, our thought does tend to create results we desire. A clear intention will create a reality.”
The implications for this theory are staggering. Scientists have known for 20 years that positive people with an optimistic attitude have stronger immune systems and, if they become ill, often recover more quickly. I believe that our thoughts act like a giant boomerang: what we give out is what we get back. It stands to reason that if we could all transform more of our 40,000 daily internal deliberations towards happier thoughts, both our health and the world could change.
Uri Geller recently told me that every day at 11am and 11pm GMT he says a 10-minute positive prayer for the world. As we approach the dawn of a new age, I am going to join him and invite you to do the same. If our thoughts truly create our reality, perhaps we should say with great conviction “Everything is perfect” for just a few minutes every day. And if we can truly believe this statement with all our hearts, maybe miracles will happen.

“There is no spoon!”
“The world needs your amazing talents. I need them”
“Uri Geller gave an absolutely resonating talk on his life and career. He had every single magician in the room on the edge of their seats trying to digest as much information as they could. Uri emphasized that the path to frame is through uniqueness and charisma and that professional entertainers must be creative in their pursuits of success and never shy away from publicity.”
Tannens Magic Blog
“The man is a natural magician. He does everything with great care, meticulous misdirection and flawless instinct. The nails are real, the keys are really borrowed, the envelopes are actually sealed, there are no stooges, there are no secret radio devices and there are no props from the magic catalogues.”
James Randi (In an open letter to Abracadabra Magazine)

“Eternity is down the hall And you sit there bending spoons In your mind, in your mind”
“I Have watched Uri Geller… I have seen that so I am a believer. It was my house key and the only way I would be able to use it is get a hammer and beat it out back flat again.”
“Better than watching Geller bending silver spoons, better than witnessing new born nebulae’s in bloom”
