Theme for the Week of March 14:
Your Mind and How to Use It
“We see a world in which humanity rediscovers
the creative power of thought.”
Do you believe we live in a world of choice? We do, even if we don’t always like the choices.
It often comes back to wanting to eat our cake and have it, too. In case you haven’t already discovered it, that saying indicates a tremendous belief in lack and poverty. How?
Because if we truly know we are abundantly supplied by a user-friendly universe, then we have no need to stop ourselves from enjoying our lives or possessions. It’s the same as being afraid to gift those clothes we haven’t worn for six months (or twelve months, if you live where there are more distinct seasons).
An unwillingness to release that which no longer serves us is a belief in lack, a state of being afraid and built on a foundation of fear. The same goes for being reluctant to make a decision, a choice.
Ernest Holmes taught us that “fear is faith mis-placed.” In other words, we’re manifesting more fear of the unknown than we are in what we claim to believe about abundance. Believing that we have freedom of choice is the first step to empowerment and unlocking the shackles of being a victim.
So why don’t we choose wisely all the time? Because we lack faith that there is a Mind in operation that is conspiring for our good. Because we don’t want to disappoint our mother. Because we are afraid he/she/they won’t like it. The list goes on and on.
There is responsibility in choice, which is another reason why we sometimes avoid making decisions. Here’s a thought I’ve been developing for the past couple of years:
We have freedom of choice, but not of consequence.
Consequence doesn’t necessarily mean something negative, but there will be a reaction to or from our action. That’s why it behooves us to choose wisely!
In the coming week, we’ll be discussing the practice of how to use our minds in the various areas of our life over at the Facebook® page for my ministry, Spirit, Mind and Body Foundation. It does take practice and it takes work. You are up to the challenge and the pay-off will be beyond what you have ever experienced up until now.
In Spirit, Truth and Playfulness,
