Our thoughts are the programming mechanism for how our brain is programmed to relate to all aspects of life and our inner selves.
AND our brain determines how our life is lived.
PLUS it is the organ that allows us to interface between this world of form and the creative world of infinite possibility thereby shaping our own experiences in life.
Thus it seems that the way our brain is programmed is an important part of us that we would do very well to organize it and learn best ways to use this key quality of life organ the way it is designed to be used.
Within the acorn is the mighty oak
God gave me the ability, with the rest up to me… We have to believe, believe, believe.
Billy Mills, Lakota Olympian
When we shall have arrived at a sufficient understanding,
our thought will take us where we wish to be.
The Science of Mind, page 340
An old song says, “Want a carrot, plant a carrot, not a brussel sprout.” This farming example clearly shows that the seeds you plant in the garden become the plants you get at the harvest. Within the seed is the entire idea of the plant, encoded, ready to sprout, waiting for the warm, dark earth in which to germinate. What an amazing thought. Your part is to choose the seed and nurture the sprouts.
The same principle and law work in the mental garden. What you plant in mind, you will harvest in form. If you have an abundance of brussel sprouts but really prefer carrots, then it’s simple – remove the roots of the sprouts and plant carrots instead. If you have excessive thoughts about financial stress, remove them and replace them with conviction of financial well-being. Then nurture those new thoughts.
We say we know this, understand it, and still the stress seems to have some invisible grip on us. We refuse to stop worrying, complaining, being afraid, or to make better choices. We must learn how to break the patterns that keep us imprisoned in the lies of limitation. Ernest Holmes (info about him) said, “Successful people think about success. A successful man is filled with that subtle something, which permeates everything that he does with an atmosphere of confidence and strength.” Faith doesn’t happen by accident; we develop it by coming to believe, one thought at a time.
Affirmation to use:

Note: When you commit to changing your thoughts to be in alignment with how you want your life to be then I highly suggest this magazine. It has great articles, monthly columns and daily readings like the one above. One of the columns is by the neuroscientist I mention in class, Mark Robert Waldman, bestselling author of How God Changes Your Brain
You have heard me talk about tuning your mind to the right channel. Read some positive new thought material in the morning to tune your mind to curiosity and contemplating a new thought throughout the day. This helps to keep your mind tuned to a channel for having new experiences in life.
