So why do I keep repeating myself….God is within us…our healing comes from within…etc??
Well, that is the first thing that one needs to really know, who and where GOD IS, and where healing comes from. Once we get that … and that’s the most challenging, everything else follows. For us to “get it” we need to learn about our minds, and how it works. Then we can learn how to control it and manifest our healing.
So let’s discuss this “mind control” thing.
First of all, our mind created our present situation. This “present” situation is all there is, but our mind is always taking us back into our past or projecting our past into the future. It makes our present reality based on things that happened in the past. It compares things that we are going through to things that happened in the past. It makes a judgment on those things and tells us how they will turn out, which is mostly negative. That way it can remain in control, and the present reality can stay as it is. It doesn’t want change, and it doesn’t want you to “get better,” because then you won’t need it as much. It surely doesn’t want us to realize that there is something else but it.
That something else is our Divine Self…which is our Real Self. Once we know that we don’t need the mind, except for making plans, everyday, mundane decisions, and to keep us breathing. We will never get well until we access our True Selves.
We do that by focusing on ourselves…what we want…what is our “calling.” I don’t mean selfishly, like what I can get, no matter what happens to other people. It means to ask what is best for me and therefore, all of Creation. That begins to quiet the mind. Have you ever had a new idea, a new inspiration? Did that come from you thinking about it, or did it just appear? That’s our inner selves communicating with us. That’s where healing comes from.
So put the mind back where it should be, in second position. I’m not saying this is an easy task, but, as all Truth, it is very simple. Just begin to think about God. Think about Creation as everything there is. Begin to just watch ourselves think..all the thoughts, fears, guilt, and shame that come bubbling up from our subconscious. Just watch them, and then let them go. They are not yours. They are “figments” and they want to trap us. Just think of everything is as it should be. That will destroy mind control. Our mind traps us into thinking that it should be different. That this situation is not right..someone did us wrong….it’s their fault. It tells us that we did everything right, so it’s someone else responsibility to fix our lives.
Remember we are totally responsible for where we are, and where we are going.
It’s not someone, it’s us!!!
