We are talking about the Rules of the Mind. Our mind does have rules. If we know these rules, we can help our self to a better life.
Last week, we talked about the rule of playing the part we’ve always known until that part is our own. Perhaps we have always known poverty or illness or betrayal or kindness or always having more than enough money or always being with people who practice integrity.
If we don’t like the part we are playing, we can choose another part. We always include the higher emotions like greatness or love or joy when we name our choices.
We can choose to be middle class or to always have more than enough money, food or whatever we desire, to always speak wisdom, to always understand the motives of those I am with, to always do what is the best.
This week we’re talking about talking our self out of negativity. The mind hears what we say about our self. The mind’s job is to make what we say real.
So, if we say that we are ugly, the mind will make certain that we are ugly. If we say we are poor, that we don’t have enough money or food or love, the mind will make certain that is so. If we say we have great health, the mind will make this so.
Therefore, it is our job to speak only what we want to be so about us.
We say things like: “I am beautiful. I am wealthy. I always have more than enough money, food, friends or anything else I want.”
We look in the mirror and say, “Hi gorgeous. Wow! You are beautiful.”
We look at our bank accounts, in our pockets and our money containers and say, “Wow! What a fabulous balance! Look how much I have.”
All day long we chat with our self: “Of course, I can do that. I am a highly skilled individual.” “I easily learn whatever I need and want to learn.” “What wonderful, supportive friends I have.” “Of course, I was asked to do that. I’m the best.” “Look at me. I weigh exactly what I should weigh. My posture is perfect.” “I knew exactly how to answer the questions the job interviewer asked.”
To do this changing of any negative statement about us to one of positiveness, we monitor our mouth and our thinking without ceasing.
We do this quietly, within our own self. There is nothing worse about starting and maintaining a habit then having others put us down or mocking us.
And we end these statements by giving thanks.
“I am beautiful. I am grateful that this is so.”
“I always have more than enough money to pay all those I owe, to give some away, to put some in storage and to buy what I desire including food, clothing, education and all good. I give thanks that this is so.”
“I clearly hear the voice of Spirit. I am grateful that this is so.”
“I am strong, fit and healthy. I am filled with vim, vigor and vitality. I give thanks that this is so.”
“My thinking is sharp, clear and focused. I have the thoughts that lead to greatness and goodness. I give thanks that this is so.”
And so it is.
