The Word of the Week - Control
I have the power to control and direct my mind to whatsoever I desire.
We inherently desire to control our world and our immediate environment with which we live. The decisions we make for our children, for our lives and our careers ultimately lies in our hands. The illusionary factor is that which is outside of our control can influence our behaviour and our reactions to them. For example, the economy, government policies, nature and other peoples attitude towards you.
We do however have total control over our minds and the power to direct our thoughts. This is indeed a fact. It is only through learned behaviour that we feel that our thoughts actually control us but this is not true. A simple thought gains momentum and energy when it is fuelled by another ingrained power – the Will, once this element is in motion the physicality of that thought starts to manifest.
We forget how powerful we are – and it is only a mere habit that needs replacing that releases our ability to create the life we desire. Each negative or unproductive thought that you have needs to be replaced or substituted with one that matches your desire. You cannot just dismiss a thought, because the habit of a repetitive thought will always cause it to reoccur. Therefore, any negative thoughts must be replaced.
As a very simple example, if you do not believe or think that, you are beautiful or handsome; you will say or have a thought that says, “I am unattractive” or “I am ugly” etc. This thought will need to be substituted with “I am beautiful, I am gorgeous.” Although this may feel uncomfortable at first, rest assured this resistance is only temporary. Once you acknowledge that there will be resistance it is only overcome by repeated practice. You will have to remember that you created the habit of calling yourself ugly or some other unkind word for many years so this is a learned behaviour therefore calling yourself beautiful just once is not going to work. It has to be repeated often, it has to be practiced until your grow accustomed to telling yourself you are beautiful. Eventually you will start to believe it and finally the physicality, you will feel and see beauty reflecting back at you in your life.
Any desire you have begins with a thought and even though others may not share your vision or even believe that you are capable of it does not mean you need to buy into their view.
Just for today, KNOW in your heart that you are indeed powerful and that YOU have the supreme control to direct your thoughts to whatsoever you desire.
Have a powerful weekend
