Finally!! We’re on the last day of Mind Power Techniques. Sorry to have delayed so long. I’m having difficulty adjusting to this new Edit screen.
Anyway, this our final mind power technique has two parts to it. First, I want to talk about something I imagine most of you are experiencing, negative thoughts. If you haven’t had any negative thoughts, you have not been paying attention.
I have gone through a particularly grueling few months and, positive thinker that I am, was concerned about WHY someone so positive has been in such a downhill slide.
So I used one of the Mind Power techniques I wrote about earlier. I got out a book, in this case, my bible. It’s called The Nature of Personal Reality by Jane Roberts ( A Seth Book). For those of you who don’t know Jane or Seth, Jane channeled Seth, a 10,000 year old spirit, in the 60’s. Whether you believe in this sort of stuff is immaterial. The messages are superb and always exactly what I need to hear.
So, early Tuesday morning, after writing since 5 a.m., I got out my bible and said “Ok, Seth, why am I experiencing these difficulties?” and I opened the book to a page at random.
Seth was talking about a young divorced mother of three who had experienced many negative situations and people recently. He told her and the readership that negative experiences help us to examine our beliefs. If something is not making you happy, examine the beliefs that are at issue. Seth says, although you may think you believe one thing, there is almost always an opposite belief at play that is causing your situation to stalemate.
In my case, I said I believe “Do what you love and the money will follow.” However, I had been experiencing difficulties in attracting enough business for quite some time. I realized that buried underneath the positive belief was one that was actually passed done to me through generations that said, “Do what you love and they will kill you for it.” So basically I could make money as long as I wasn’t doing my heart’s desire for a career.
My solution, for the time being, is to have a part-time stable income that is just something I’m good at and do what I love as well.
You have to resolve your own belief conflicts in the way that works for you. But first, sit down and examine your beliefs in an area to see where the conflicts are. Then you can come up with an action plan for removing the beliefs. The easiest way to find conflicts is to see where you don’t have a clear-cut opinion about something, where you vacillate, or where you feel uneasy or confused about a topic.
Part II: Read through the Sixty Techniques and find one or two to focus on practicing over the next sixty days. Pick one you didn’t work with during the Day 30 exercise.
