Foot Pain

June 21, 2009

Hi Everyone,

I have had foot problems for years now. Today, I finally heard myself: “I just can’t stand this.”

Of course, my mind heard me. God only knows how many times I’ve said this: quietly, out loud, in anger, in frustration.

So. My mind hears every word I say and every word I think and every word I hear.

How many times have I heard someone else say, “I just can’t stand this.” God only knows.

So. My mind gives me what it thinks I want. Listening to me, the mind thinks I don’t want to stand so the mind gives me foot problems.

Now that I know that I am powerful because I can change the present and the future by changing my words, I decide to change my words.

So. Now I say, “I can cope with anything. I am an excellent coper. I know how to relax and destress. I can handle anything. My body creates wellness, strength and beauty. I have excellent coping skills. I have excellent wellness, strength and beauty in every area of my body and my life.”

So. Listen to what you say to and about you. This is hard. We are so used to saying and hearing what we say and what we hear.

Before going to sleep, ask, “Mind, reveal to me what I’m doing to bring about this unwanted condition.”

The Mind/Brain’s Time Table

Feb. 11, 2019

Hi Everyone,

Some teachers say that we only need to repeat a new idea or sound or word or behavior once; and then, we have learned it or have changed something.

So. We do. We repeat the affirmation or statement of truth or instructions to our mind/brain once and then wonder why we get few if any results.

The Mind/Brain’s Time Table

This is the time table the mind/brains follows as you repeat the newness you have selected:

  1. Day Ten: the mind/brain becomes aware that you, its human, is communicating with it.
  2. Day Fourteen: the mind/brain wakes up and says, “Oh. My human wants to learn or change something.”
  3. Day Twenty-one: the mind/brain accepts the learning or change.
  4. Day Forty: the mind/brain begins to make permanent the learning or change you have selected.
  5. Day Forty Plus: the mind/brain, over time, will make the learning or change you selected permanent.


Why is this so? This is so because the mind/brain learns by repeating. Repeating means to do something over and over and over again. One time won’t do it.

If you really want to learn something or change something, you must repeat that newness over and over and over again.

Yes. There are those who are instant learners or instant changers. Most of us don’t have this ability.

So stop beating yourself up because you need time and must make an effort to bring about a change.

Simply do the necessary repeating. Praise yourself for being willing and able to do the required work. Praise your mind/brain for working with you to make the newness you have selected permanent.

And so it is.
