As the week has progressed, one thing seems forefront in my mind, the quote from our MKE webinar…. “Thought concentrated on a definite purpose becomes power”!
It is very interesting how our conscious mind is truly the gatekeeper for our subconscious mind. I have always known this in a vague way, ie ‘Attitude is everything”, but the truth of this is becoming much more personal and specific now.
Realizing that where I concentrate my thought totally determines my outcome, makes me realize even more the importance of the scripture, 2 Corinthians 10:5b
“…we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.”
How often do I let my mind wander and “dilly dally” throughout the day? Venturing off in areas that open my subconscious to negative thoughts, unfocused thoughts, discouraging thoughts, or fearful thoughts? Yet, this week I am so much more attentive to taking my thoughts captive, and redirecting them to “Whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.” Philippians 4:8.
I know as I concentrate on this, it will become more and more automatic and the results will be dramatic. I hope you will join me in doing the same!
So much new info and areas to explore this week! Understanding more about the subconscious mind and the consciousness mind. Having always been a concrete thinker so using my creative mind, seeing things in my mind, etc has always been difficult for me. I look forward to learning how to picture my dreams, and allow them to grow and flourish.
I guess the concrete thinker in me grabs more onto the Promise card – make a commitment and check it off when I am done. (I am a list maker!) I accomplished my goal and have been enjoying the “Do It Now” with enthusiasm. I have been actually using this to motivate myself at different times of the day with great results.
I know Mark said it is really important we focus on the blue rectangle this week. I have been seeing them many places – actually amazed at how many of them around me! I don’t really get the connection of linking yet, but I know as I follow the steps it will become more apparent.
Revamping my DMP this week with emotion and much more specifics has made it really come alive to me. It is now exciting to read it with enthusiasm and begin to try to see in my mind what my words are speaking.
So grateful for the progress and believing in the process,
Well, as I begin this journey starting the 6 month Master Keys Experience, I am excited, yet feeling a bit overwhelmed. Lots to learn, good habits and discipline to put into practice, and changing a lot of patterns in my life.
I have been working on personal development for years, learning and growing, yet I feel like this is a definitive time in my life. As I am seeking direction for my future that will bring the most fulfillment and passion, and make the most impact on the world around me. This starts with The Lord first, my family, and then those in business and ministry wherever God leads and directs me.
It is exciting to be at a place in my life that I am free. Having just lost my job of 18 years due to a back injury, at times I am concerned, especially financially, yet mostly I am seeing this as a new beginning. An opportunity for change. An open door to explore and soar like an eagle as The Lord directs. I am so thankful for this course being offered at just the same time. I believe it is not a coincidence and certainly look forward to being committed daily to the instructions, and reaping the benefits of becoming all that God created me to in the days ahead. Sooooo…. I take the plunge and stumble forward! Thanks for joining me in this journey;-)
