Is your word your bond? Are your words your servants? Mine are. I speak things into existence as though they were.
Did you know that you are a Spirit, you live in a body and you possess a soul?
I used to be impulsive. Eating whatever I wanted. Saying whatever I wanted and even worse, wallowing in my emotions for however long I wanted. These endeavors and activities proved to be fruitless overtime.
Your soul is made up of your mind, will and emotions. If you are not careful, your soul will take you into stagnant waters and soon you will find that you have no winds to cast you anywhere that you want to go. The mind, will and emotions are very strong and childlike. Your spirit however, is mature and eternal.
Have you ever wondered why it’s so easy to walk away from plans and do what you want in the moment? That is your soul right there. Wanting, yearning and demanding your attention to take the path of least resistance. The soul is like a child. The Spirit, is mature, it does not override the Soul, it moves via permission. Like God, who will knock until you answer. If you train your mind, quiet it down and focus on the truth, you will have accomplished what is referred to as a "sound mind." A sound mind is rational. For example, you say, "I want to lose weight" or even better you make your goal specific. "I am going to release 30lbs in 4 months." You've made your meal and exercise plan. You purchased healthy foods. You are ready! Suddenly, at work, everyone is having a birthday and bringing decadent treats around. What do you decide? Let's say, you decide to have a slice of cake, and you half-heartedly follow your plan. You say things like "One piece won't hurt, I've done great all day, I deserve this." Is that rational to your goals? No it is not. That, is not a sound mind. A sound mind, would say "I would love to have a piece of that cake, but I am choosing to stick to my plans because I have a goal of 30lbs and a window of 4 months, I have no time to waste." Quiet the mind, and you will grow (change). Train your mind to become more aware, not of self (soul), but of truth (spirit). Be truth-aware. The mind, if it believes the emotions, can cause your will to go against what Spirit truly wants. A healthy mind will produce healthy behaviors.
How to communicate to your Soul
There are a few “gates” you may have heard “the eyes are the windows to the soul.” The eyes, or what you watch sends messages to your mind, also what you hear, and also what you speak! Whatever you see, hear and say is going to become your soul’s “genetic” makeup. For example, if you watch twerking, hear songs about twerking and talk about twerking, guess what you will want to do? TWERK! Now, that you know how powerful you are (which is that you can manifest things into existence) you must know that you cannot serve two thoughts at the same time. The word of God says you cannot serve God and mammon, you will love one and hate the other. Serve one thought and stick to it. If you want to change something, say, develop discipline. Then, watch shows about discipline, listen to podcasts about discipline and talk about how disciplined you are. The change will not always be overnight, it happens over time. Sometimes you will find yourself battling certain thoughts, but even if you spend 51% of the time thinking about the change you WANT you’ve won.
1. Make a simple goal that you can follow perhaps make a vow that you will workout for 30 minutes
2. Prepare one day in the week that you will commit to this and do it (not 29 minutes, 30!)
3. Acknowledge that you have kept your word and say “My words are my servants, I shall have what I say.”
4. Ante up the goal and repeat.
5. Create affirmations: In the event that old recordings come to thought, replace it with an affirmation, repeat these day and night.
6. Use youtube, podcasts, books and songs that are congruent to who you are.
In time the child/soul will become obedient to what the Soul desires because you practice what you preach.
I am a woman of my word. My words are my servants. I have what I say.
Soon your words will be so obedient to you that you won’t have to make an effort. You will speak to things as though they were and they shall come to pass quickly.
You do not have to teach yourself how to be impulsive. But rather, you train yourself to be disciplined. Train your mind, quiet your mind. This message is not to beat you up. Know that you will want to do what you feel like doing. But you can speed up your process by flooding your gates (eyes, ears, mouth) with the change. You will have your same memories, you will have some old recordings but your affirmations that are connected to your Spirit will continue to grow.
Your actions will go in the direction of your dominant thought. Your natural impulsive thoughts can become overrided. That is the part you can control. Later in this posting I will go into how you can do this.
Seed..time and harvest. It takes time. You cannot cram all of this new information and think that you will change.
You are transformed by the renewing of your mind.
What Can You DO? Think of the Gates: Eye, Ears, and Mouth.
Eye Window: Vision board, watching youtube videos, reading books, reading your own affirmations
Ear Window: podcasts, songs, youtube videos, hearing your own affirmations
Mouth Window: Speaking your own affirmations to yourself. Talking about your change with other people.
The eyes are windows to the soul, what you see picks up messages and has direct access to your soul (mind will and emotions) and when these messages reside in the soul, your actions follow accordingly. What are other windows, or message receivers? What you hear and what you speak.
Are you moving? Time is Money
I believe just about everyone in America has heard the old adage “time is money.” What is money? It is a currency, or a current it flows. If you are not careful with where you place your time your precious money can go anywhere.
