Be careful what you ask for. Be careful what you seed for. Bring your care into it. Bring your faith and trust into what you are to seed for. Start acting as if it's coming forward — take the actions that represent the claim.
— John Morton, DSS

Q: Can I tell my spouse about my seeding if we're sharing the same kind of vision?

I suggest you don't tell anybody. I've heard a lot of people say, “My husband and I, or my wife and I, we share everything.” And then they proceed to share the divorce. Since God is your partner in seeding — not me, not MSIA, but God — keep it between you and God.

I don't tell anybody anything until I've received what I seeded for. And when it's done, I say, “This is what we've done.” There's no way anyone can put any negativity on it, psychically interrupt it, or mess me over, because it's done. I'm seeding all the time. I have a lot of seedings out there, but I also don't have more than what I can handle. Remember, it's not this body, nor is it your body, that's rewarding us. It is you and God and how much contact you have with God, which is where s.e.s are really important. Also important is the faith of seeing what you want coming in, seeing yourself receiving it, knowing you are going to get it. If you doubt it, the doubt goes into the seed, and you can get negative things coming forward. So this is why I say, don't tell anybody.

Q: My wife and I are in a business partnership where we work together, and we want to seed together for the business because we do everything together for the business. Is that a different situation?

No, it is not. You can both seed for the business, but you don't tell each other the specifics of what you're seeding for. If you both say, “Well, let's seed for health, wealth, happiness, abundance, and more business,” you can individually meditate on that. Then you send in your seeding money separately. If your spouse says to you, “what did you put into seeding” you can say, “Darling, when it shows up, I'll show it to you.” You see, it's between you and God, not between you and your partner here and God. When you seed, God is your only partner.

Q: What's a good way to seed for a raise in pay?

If you want a pay increase of a thousand dollars, write it down on a piece of paper, and in the morning when you wake up, say, “I'm receiving the pay increase of a thousand dollars, and God is my Partner in this.” You enter into the feeling of it, the sensing of it, and then you let it go. You can do this for two days or more. And then when you have it clearly inside of you, you just let it go. At that point, it is in Divinity's hands. And when you let it go, you say, “God, it's in your hands. If I get it, you deliver it. If I don't, that seed is yours.”

I know one person who did that and got fired from one job. He then went down the street to another company and got hired in the same type of position at an increased salary and with better working conditions. He also found the woman he eventually married.

Q: I want to bring in a lot of money, but I don't have much. What should I do?

If you want a million dollars and you seed ten dollars for it, there is little practicality in that. You probably don't have enough power to attract the million dollars. A guideline is that it's a tenfold to hundredfold return on what you seed. So start from where you are, no matter how small, and build from that.

Q: If it is a huge goal, should I seed for the huge goal or should I seed for the steps to the goal?

Why ask for a loaf of bread if you can ask for a grocery store? And a loaf of bread can be made up of many slices.

Q: How do I seed for things that aren't material, that don't have a price tag?

Let's say you're seeding for a better relationship. I tell people to do an ideal scene of what that better relationship would be. Then close your eyes and go inside and ask yourself, “How much is this worth to me?” And inside of you, you spontaneously come up with a figure. You now have a value statement for yourself. Then say to yourself, “How much do I need to seed to make my ideal scene happen?” Then inside of you, you will get another figure. And you seed that figure for that value for that better relationship.

Q: What if I seed for something, like a relationship, that's not really for my highest good?

It won't come in. But after a certain period of time (like three to six weeks), if nothing's moving, you say, “Thanks, God, for the relationship with you,” because maybe that's what the relationship was all about. God says, “I don't want you to have anybody else. I want you to have me.” Well, I'd settle for that. There's no question, because God is all things, including all the not things.

Q: How many things can I seed for?

You can seed for as much as you can handle in your consciousness. And you seed for each thing separately. For example, if you want to come out to MSIA's Conference in July, go to Jamaica a month later, and a month after that go to northern Illinois, then you seed for all three separately. Do not put them together as one seeding because if one doesn't come off, it blocks the other ones. So you seed for them as entirely separate things.

Q: If God's my Partner, can I just seed and let him decide what to do?

No, because he's saying to you, “Give me a blueprint of what you want.” Your job is to provide God with the blueprint.

Q: Is seeding a higher law than tithing?

Seeding is not a law. Seeding is done in cooperation with the high self, so if you're only seeding, the lower self can feel left out. So, as I said earlier, tithe for the lower self, seed for the high self, share it out through the conscious self, and be the source of abundance and overflow for everybody around you. Somebody might come up to you and say, “Oh, my God, my kid's teeth need fixing. I need a hundred dollars.” You can say, “Here's your hundred dollars. You don't have to pay me back. Go get the kid's teeth fixed, and stop worrying about it so you can do your own seeding properly.”

Q: Regarding my money magnet, would it work to keep 10 percent of the money magnet and use 90 percent as seeding?

You can seed from the money magnet or you can tithe from the money magnet. I would seed from it because I'd be increasing my supply, my return, and I'd keep 10 percent.

When you tithe off your money magnet, you're tithing into the church magnet. When you're seeding, you're not necessarily seeding into the church magnet. You're seeding into God.

Q: Would seeding be amplified if we as a group focused on the same thing?

Yes, but if somebody throws doubt into it, guess what happens. It's amplified doubt. That's why I keep telling you to come back and reconnect your power with the glory of God. This causes a conviction to appear inside of you that's so dynamic.

You see, I love this. I've done this for years, and I've never wanted to share it with anybody because I thought, “If I share this, it might be taken away.” So I seeded for the giving away, and a year or so ago, it started coming up for me to share it.

Q: Can I teach my kids to seed ?

Yes. They get an allowance, so have them seed off the allowance. Seeding also teaches great money management. Kids start to realize, “I don't want to seed money for candy. I want to save it and seed it for this great big Christmas present.” So they learn how to save and prepare, and they learn how to defer, to sacrifice for greater value.

Q:I heard that if you have any doubts or negative thoughts, the seed would go negative. That's got me scared about seeding.

If you have doubt, which can cancel the seeding, and you don't get what you wanted, you can feel like you threw your money away. Then that stops you from seeding any more because you will think that it doesn't work. So you may say, “I'm not going to seed any more because I do it negatively.” The solution is to grow up, learn to be mature, and handle it responsibly. There's no way to do this except to really do it.

Q: What do you do with the human part that doubts?

In MSIA we deal in positive focus as opposed to positive thinking. With positive thinking, if you have a negative thought — poof! — there goes your positive thinking. Positive focus allows for negative thoughts along the way; you're just not sidetracked by them.

It's critical that at the time you seed, you're clear about what you are seeding for. That's your positive focus. It's important that there is no doubt present at that time because that doubt will cancel the seed. It'll put bugs in your harvest. That's why some people don't know how to work seeding. They're too interested in putting their focus into doubting.

Then, once you have seeded, if doubts come up, it's okay. Just let them go. However, don't focus on your doubts or be run by them because this will corrupt the clear inner vision, your positive focus on what you want.

It's like taking a seed of wheat and putting it in the ground and watering it. In two days you don't dig it up to see how it's growing. That kills it. You never get that seed back once you've seeded it. But after it produces the harvest, you can take part in the harvest.

It's very important that you take the harvest of the seed, or you can stop yourself from receiving the harvest, because what you take from the harvest is more seeds to plant for another harvest. If you plant wheat in the field and it comes up, if you don't harvest it, you will have no harvest next year. So you must receive of what you are sowing.

Personally, I don't put any negativity into my seeding. I just don't do it. You've got to find out for yourself how you don't do it. In fact, you have to find out for yourself how this entire process works. I'm just giving you some of the principles. It works so many diverse ways that there's no way I could begin to tell it all to you because it's each person's blueprint of his or her own karmic path of life.

Q: If I seed for something and I change or I say, “That's not it,” or it doesn't come in, is the seed still active?

Yes, but if you doubt that you can receive it, just forget it and start a whole new seed. Go from wheat to alfalfa. Don't go for a second field of wheat, which you've already poisoned by your own negative thoughts and feelings.

Q: How is seeding connected to faith?

When you seed for something, you act as though you already have received it, which allows a space for it to come in. That's a form of “faithing.” In the Bible, there's a story of a woman who reached out and touched Jesus' garment. This was a seeding action. She said, “If I touch his garment, I will be healed.” It wasn't, “I touched his garment, and now I'm healed.” She said it ahead of time, as an act of faith, which is the seeding process.

The principle says you get a tenfold to hundredfold return for what you seed. Then, on what you receive back, you tithe to the church, which is saying, “I got it. And thank you, Lord, for the harvest.” Now you seed again. Your tithing is not a seeding. Seeding is a different thing inside of you, where you build the strength of your own faith and convictions.

Q: Can I seed for someone else's health?

Absolutely. You do it just the same way you seed for anything else. You see their good health, you see them with vitality, the fullness of it, and you always do it for the highest good of all concerned. You send in the money — maybe it's five cents — and then all of a sudden their fingernails may straighten out, and you know that might not have been enough money.

Good health is an intangible, so you seed the amount you feel inside. It isn't necessarily a rational approach. It's more of an irrational thought, where you say, “This much will do it.” Then you wait for three to six weeks. In about three weeks something should start moving. If not, all it says to you is that you did not do enough. So you send off some more seeding. In this case, it's still part of the original seed; you just didn't give enough to start with.

If you want something really big, you might seed so much every month for twelve months, until it reaches a certain point and the thing comes in. Or maybe it comes in along with something else.

There are so many ways this can work, and I don't know all of them. But I do know that it works according to you. I'd be really interested to have you try it and find out. And if it works, let us know, because we'll have more information about how to live this life better.

Q: Can I talk about the thing I've seeded for if I don't actually say that I've seeded for it?

I wouldn't mess around with that. I'd keep that thing very sacred.

Q: Can I write down what I'm seeding for?

Absolutely. In fact I suggest that you do write it down so that you can review it for about a week. Perhaps you can review it two or three times in the morning until you don't have to review it anymore because it's there inside of you.

Q: Does it matter whether I give the money first and then later write it down?

Send the money first because then that makes you commit to doing it. If you write it down first, it's possible that you'll never get around to getting a perfect picture. You'll say, “Well, maybe this isn't quite right. I'll work on it a little while more.” Send your seeding with the general idea of what it is, because God may read the intention of the heart and produce it for you within hours.
