Week 16 ~ Controlled Thought

 

Exerpt form Haanel’s The Master Key System Part 16:

16. It is by the exercise of this power that we take our fate out of the hands of chance, and consciously make for ourselves the experiences which we desire, because when we consciously realize a condition, that condition will eventually manifest in our lives; it is therefore evident that in the last analysis thinking is the one great cause in life.

17. Therefore, to control thought is to control circumstances, conditions, environment, and destiny.

18. How then are we to control thought; what is the process? To think is to create a thought, but the result of the thought will depend upon its form, its quality and its vitality.

19. The form will depend upon the mental images from which it emanates; this will depend upon the depth of the impression, the predominance of the idea, the clarity of the vision, the boldness of the image.

20. The quality depends upon its substance, and this depends upon the material of which the mind is composed; if this material has been woven from thoughts of vigor, strength, courage, determination, the thought will possess these qualities.

21. And finally, the vitality depends upon the feeling with which the thought is impregnated. If the thought is constructive, it will possess vitality; it will have life, it will grow, develop, expand, it will be creative; it will attract to itself everything necessary for its complete development.

22. If the thought is destructive, it will have within itself the germ of its own dissolution; it will die, but in the process of dying, it will bring sickness, disease, and every other form of discord.

23. This we call evil, and when we bring it upon ourselves, some of us are disposed to attribute our difficulties to a Supreme Being, but this supreme being is simply Mind in equilibrium.

24. It is neither good nor bad, it simply is.

25. Our ability to differentiate it into form is our ability to manifest good or evil.

This chapter 16 has been a real excellent chapter for me to contemplate on. Controlled and focused thought is THE CAUSE for everything we experience as “reality”.

Week 15 ~ Letting Go Of Old Thoughts

Been questioning myself alot lately about why I believe in certain things. Or why I respond in that automatic way to some situation.

Like…. why did I always default to a feeling of scarcity when paying bills and looking at my bank account even tho there was enough in there?

Or why would I automatically be disgusted when a client was late for an appointment, or a prospect would stand me up without even a call or text or changing their mind?

I find that in questioning myself about these things, and staying an observer and recognizing when it is happening…. that a couple things begin to happen:

1. I am giving myself an ever so slight of a pause between reactions to think and choose

2. I am recognizing that my automatic response isn’t the response I wish to choose

3. I am seeing the connection between the disempowering thought and creation of my reality

4. I challenge myself to make a new thought, decision, which I can groom into a new habit to follow the type of person I prefer to be and already see myself as being

5. I am alot more tolerant of others

It’s quite interesting the power of thought…. and creation of outward results.

Even in the instance of feeling scarcity/ lack when looking at my checkbook when paying bills…. even though there “is enough” I have been seeing the downward trend of my savings. I know this is not a coincidence. I know I am creating “not enough” because of my feeling of not enough.

Even that thought has translated into my self confidence of not enough.

And really I am good with never finding out why or how that belief was formed. I am seeing the need to reeducate my thinking to be of “enough”. And to recognize immediately when the old thought pops in and immediately reeducate the thought.

This is why I am persisting in my self development and staying the course with Master Keys… it is a simple structure if you are willing to do the work…. which can be easy if you choose to believe it is.

I choose to believe it is.

 

Week 14 ~ Gratitude

This last 2 weeks have been very awe inspiring as I hold myself true to following the required homework in MKMMA…. Master Keys.

I have been starting my day 1 hour earlier than I had in the past. After showering I make my breakfast, and as I eat… I do my readings and write my 3 gratitude cards and 1 journal card.

It is amazing how much peace and centeredness I feel. This alone is making it so easy to stay on the mental diet of seeing, thinking, and speaking only good.

I am also seeing characteristics in people that reflect the peace and happiness I feel.

This is very cool….. and I’m sticking with it 🙂
