“Act with purpose, courage, confidence, competence and intelligence until these qualities 'lock in' to your subconscious mind.”
A few days ago we had dinner with friends with whom we share a 40-year history. We traveled many of the same paths together, but also several diverse journeys. However, our heartfelt goals remain the same. We always endeavor to implement an action plan to share these wonderful experiences with others.
In recent conversation I expressed that I may be in my senior years but I am still searching for experiences to fulfill my dreams. Dianne said to me “You have a wealth of wisdom from everything that you have already experienced to write and tell others about in your blog.” With that vote of confidence I was motivated to sit in quiet meditation to get guidance as to what to write about today.
Following this quiet time I was moved to get up and pick up a book from my resource library. The book I was attracted to was one I read many years ago, “Three Magic Words” written in 1954 by U.S. Andersen. The forward of this book written 62 years ago sounds like something that would catch our eye on social media today. The following is just one paragraph:
"This is the age of uncertainty. This is a time of emotional upset and nervous instability. This is the era when man, surveying the universe from atop the heap of his material accomplishments, sees his insignificance in comparison to the stars, understands how puny is his strength in comparison to atomic power.”
People who read these words 62 years ago may have been discouraged and never attempted to set up and action plan to achieve their dreams. They may have let the words “age of uncertainty, emotional upset and nervous instability” sink into their subconscious mind and stop them from realizing the real message.
Once we realize the following possibilities our lives can change, our goals and ambitions realized.
· The subconscious mind can bury your past experiences, especially the ones that were felt with great emotion.
· These hidden experiences or beliefs Andersen calls Prompters.
· The prompters play back into your life, whether you believe them or not, which accounts for poor health, financial difficulties and sad relationships.
The good news is that Andersen gives meditations and other ways to help recognize these prompters and clear them by creating positive ones.
A quote from his book is: “The Subconscious Mind is the most powerful creative instrument in the universe; it spans space and time, manifests form from substance, reaches out to all knowledge.”
By using many of the tools I have been sharing with you in previous postings you can rise above the negative news we see daily on social media and television.
The tool that I have not talked about but our friend suggested is meditation. I am now including a brief meditation before I do my daily writing in my journal. Each sentence of my writing starts with “I am grateful” followed by whatever comes to my mind. For some reason my subconscious easly slips back into being fed by the local news and negative stories posted on the internet. I am surrounded with additional tools like daily affirmations, inspiration books, moment of prayer and many more to allow me to act quickly to change this pattern of thinking to one in which anything is possible.
You may want to spend some time today selecting tools that you can use when your subconscious mind clicks into any negative thinking in any given moment.
It is always good hearing from you to learn about tools that you are using with success. That is what these blog postings are all about… attracting a group of followers who are always coming up with positive possibilities.
