Starting a new day…. Every day

cc000023.jpg

The first hour is the rudder of the day. We essentially set the tone ( or the vibe) for the day starting the moment we’re awake.

Here is an exercise for you.

Tomorrow morning as soon as you’re awake pay attention to what’s going on in your head. Even before you get out of bed.

What is the conversation going on in your head. Are you glad to be up or do you hate that damn alarm clock. Are you having a pleasant conversation ( in your head) or is it one of lack and annoyance or worse.

First time I tried that exercise I was shocked to find out how someone as positive as me could have so much negativity in the first 5 minutes of the day……. It was an eye opener……..

This is my morning routine.

Sometime between 5:30 and 6:00

I am consciously in my body( time you wake up-before getting up) I take a few deep breaths and recognize this morning my body is alive. That’s a good start.

then I think of my expectation for this day to be a happy and exciting day and a day of constant contact with my infinite source. A few more deep breaths. hug my wife and get out of bed. Great to see my feet are still working..

I drink a pint of water.:::Slowly:::. Notice how the water hydrates my body starting with my tongue. If I don’t need more water then head to bathroom for the shower/shave/brush. Before I start I set my intention to clean my physical body. And during the process I produce positive thoughts. Think about funny things, fun things anything to keep increasing my vibe.

Now my body is watered and clean I grab my dream-magazine (Turk made magazine filled with things I want in my life.) I look at the pictures until my vibe reaches the point where I am happy to have those things in my life. Then I set my timer to 20 minutes, and start thinking about my life at that point in particular about the feeling I am going to have about it.

When the alarm goes off. I ask for clear guidance for anything I must do to reach that vision and faith for the times I’m in doubt of my connection to my God.

My work for this day is done.

I dress up and GOOOooooooo.

Introduction to Subconscious

Every action starts with a thought. This is what guides us and helps us deal with life on its own terms. When we have to make decisions we use our faculty of the brain to think and reason about what we are facing so we can come to some positive conclusion that is most beneficial to ourselves and hopefully to those around us. It doesn’t matter what our station in life may be, we all use the same avenue that allows us to make decisions by what we experience, see or hear. If we think bad thoughts, bad things happen to us. If we think good thoughts, good things happen to us.

This way of thinking we believe comes from our consciousness. It dictates the way we think and reason about what has happened in our life and has a direct influence on the outcome of whatever problem or issue we happen to face. This conscious level controls how we discern our surroundings at any given time. But did you know that the conscious level of the mind is only involved in what we perceive? That’s right. The conscious level only takes in what the eyeballs and ears take in and initially deposit that information. However, the process does not end there, for another step is involved.

There is another level of the brain that has more control over our thoughts than the conscious level does. This is the subconscious.

Subconscious Power

Subconscious programming starts with thoughts. These thoughts originate in the conscious mind and are then sent to the subconscious mind for processing. Once the subconscious mind processes these thoughts, it stores them for later retrieval. Thoughts that are held for later retrieval are known as beliefs.

Everything that is produced in a person’s life is a result of what they thought. Thoughts are very powerful as you have seen in this book. All you have to do is look around you and see conditions of people and know they got there because of what they thought. This is why it is important to monitor what you think and focus on what comes into your conscious mind. By thinking about positive things, you will produce positive results.

There are many steps you can take to change your subconscious programming. You can perform meditation or creative visualization or both. The bottom line is to do what it takes to control and change what goes into your subconscious mind, and to alter what is already there.

When you meditate, you actually reach your subconscious mind directly. This is the best way to reprogram your subconscious mind. Just put good thoughts in there and you will find your previous programming will change. It is important to learn this principle. What you think about becomes your reality. If you want to attract goods things in your life, you must think good thoughts.

In order to attract good things in your life you must vibrate in harmony with the universe. This entails different procedures to gets there. You can reprogram your subconscious through meditation and visualization. But you also need to show gratitude for what you have. This way you will get more. When you show gratitude, you are vibrating in harmony with the universe and by doing this, those thoughts will get processed by the subconscious mind. What happens then is that those thoughts are filed in your memory banks as vibrating energy. So when the time comes to use them, they will respond exactly the same way they were stored. This way the energy you have from your subconscious mind is sent to your conscious mind and you will respond according to what the thoughts are.

Everything in the universe is energy. By acting in harmony with this energy, you can become intertwined as it were with the universal source. By coming together with it in this way, you will be attracting everything that the universe has to offer since you will be connected to it. Once your subconscious mind has been programmed properly to be in accord and connected to the universe, the results will be what you make them to be – goodness, happiness, and plenty of prosperity.

Thought Waves and their Process of Reproduction-Part1

LIKE a stone thrown into the water, thought produces ripples and waves which spread out over the great ocean of thought. There is this difference, however: the waves on the water move only on a level plane in all directions, whereas thought waves move in all directions from a common center, just as do the rays from the sun.

Just as we here on earth are surrounded by a great sea of air, so are we surrounded by a great sea of Mind. Our thought waves move through this vast mental ether, extending, however, in all directions, as I have explained, becoming somewhat lessened in intensity according to the distance traversed, because of the friction occasioned by the waves coming in contact with the great body of Mind surrounding us on all sides.

These thought waves have other qualities differing from the waves on the water. They have the property of reproducing themselves; in this respect they resemble sound waves rather than waves upon the water. Just as a note of the violin will cause the thin glass to vibrate and “sing,” so will a strong thought tend to awaken similar vibrations in minds attuned to receive it. Many of the “stray thoughts” which come to us are but reflections or answering vibrations to some strong thought sent out by another. But unless our minds are attuned to receive it, the thought will not likely affect us. If we are thinking high and great thoughts, our minds acquire a certain keynote corresponding to the character of the thoughts we have been thinking. And, this keynote once established, we will be apt to catch the vibrations of other minds keyed to the same thought. On the other hand, let us get into the habit of thinking thoughts of an opposite character, and we will soon be echoing the low order of thought emanating from the minds of the thousands thinking along the same lines.

How to take action Consistently

Steve and I must be sharing the same source of intuition. Every time I read his posts I feel like I’m reading my own thoughts. Even our wives  have similarities. If I wasn’t born 7000 miles from the US I’d think we’re related in this plane too.

On his new post he’s outlining how to actually get in a state for taking the “correct” action. Often people think about their goals and dreams and take action. After all we’re condition to Just Do it and adjust along the way. I think it’s important to take action, but no reason to take the wrong action for the sake of action.

1) Visualize your goal/task as completed.

2) Start playing with that thought in your mind. Explore it. If it’s a new career see yourself IN that career and earning the money and having the things it’ll bring in to your life etc. TAKE YOUR TIME & ENJOY this process. This is YOUR dream came true. If it’s not enjoyable  it’s not your dream.

3) Your body will  start buzzing with desire to move ( 5-10 minutes) this signal is a good indicator your subconscious mind and conscious mind are aligned.

Then ?

Here is his answer:

” Once you start feeling that positive tension in your body, stop and ask yourself this question:

What can I do right now to make this goal a reality?

As you ask this question, hold the expectation that the answer will be something simple that can be done in 30 minutes or less.

Whatever reasonable answer pops into your head, accept it and act on it immediately.  At this point you should find it very easy to take action — it would be harder to procrastinate.  Do you procrastinate on sex when you’re physically aroused?

Now you’ve caught the energy wave.  The next trick is to ride it as far as you can before it eventually dissipates.

Get that simple task done as quickly as you can.  Sometimes you’ll flow effortlessly into another task.  But if you don’t know what to do next, that’s no problem.  Just stop again and ask yourself:

What can I do right now to make this goal a reality?

Relation of our thinking to our bodily actions

Mind thinks. Thinking is mind action. Thought is the result of mind action. This is a statement of what mind does, but it is neither a description nor a definition of mind.We know about mind only through our consciousness of its action, but because of this consciousness we know what we mean when we speak of mind and say it is that which thinks.

In seeking for the sources of activity we find that in all human actions thinking is first in the order of occurrence; that is, we do not act unless we have first thought.

A word, even the most idle or habitual, noticed or unnoticed, must exist in the mind in the form of a thought before the vocal organs can utter it. Thinking may precede utterance only by a space of time

It may be well to note definitely that thinking is not itself a thing, but is only an action. Mind is the thing, just as the hand is the thing, and its motion is only its action. Too short to be measured, nevertheless the thought of the word was in existence in the mind before the word could be spoken; and the same is true of every other action. This statement is necessarily correct because an expression, whatever its form, is always the utterance, or outward indication or manifestation, of some intention, emotion, thought, or feeling, and can never precede what it expresses; hence an act never precedes nor outruns thinking, but must always follow it.

Willing is the result of choosing, and both choosing and willing are modes of thinking.

This order of occurrence is fully illustrated in the simple act of lifting the hand. Contraction of the muscle causes the motion of the hand; an impulse from the nerve causes the contraction of the muscle; some action in the brain sends the impulse along the nerve; thinking is the motive power, and without it there would not be any action of brain, nerve, or muscle. These are only parts of a machine; over them all is the power of mind without which the machine could not move; just as without the fire there could not be any steam in the boiler, and with- out the steam there could not be any motion of the piston, and without the motion of the piston the machinery of the factory could not move.

Frequently something outside of the mind causes the mind to act; but had the mind not acted, there would have been no bodily action, or had the mind acted differently, the bodily action would have been different also. It was the mental act which caused the bodily action and gave to it its peculiar character. But the mind may act independently without any provocation or stimulation exterior to itself, and the motion of the body will occur just the same, showing that mind action alone is the essential in the process.

If we grant all that may be claimed for the influence of external things upon the mind, it still remains that the mind is the power behind all else in moving the body and that without it there would not be any motion. Additional and final proof of the truth of this proposition is found in the fact that if we remove the mind, as in death, the body cannot move. The nerves, muscles, tendons, and bones are parts of the machine — wonderful though inert — which the mind uses. In itself alone no portion of this machine has any more power than a crowbar when it is not grasped by the hand of the laborer. “All acts are due to motive, and are the expression design on the part of the actor. This is as true of the simplest as of the most complex actions of animals, whether consciously or unconsciously.

The action of the Amoeba in engulfing in its jelly, is as much designed as the diplomacy of the statesman, or the investigation of the scientist.” But motive is a kind of thinking or a state of mind, and thus this statement by Cope, while it includes all the actions of the entire animal kingdom under one general proposition, declares that they are ail due to mind and its action. The investigations of physiologists show how surpassingly wonderful is the force of mind when acting in connection with motion of the hand, even when looked at from a material point of view. The forearm, considered mechanically, is a lever.

The distance to the fulcrum from the point where the power is applied is, we may say, an inch. The distance from the fulcrum to the point where the weight lies in the hand is, say, fifteen inches. Then, in accordance with mechanical laws, the power put forth by the muscle to raise the weight must be fifteen times as much as the weight itself. An ordinarily strong man can raise a weight of fifty pounds. This means that the mind, acting through the muscle, in this instance exerts a force equal to fifteen times fifty, or seven hundred and fifty pounds. This is the force, represented in pounds, which the mind exerts in such a case.

But this is not all. If this same muscle which has operated under the force of seven hundred and fifty pounds should be removed from the arm and one end of it should be supported from a beam, a weight of fifty pounds attached to the other end would tear it asunder. This shows that the mind not only exerts a force of seven hundred and fifty pounds in lifting the weight, but at the same time a nearly equal force in holding the muscle together. A similar condition exists in connection with every muscular movement of the body.

There is an intimate and most wonderful relation between mind action and the action of the brain and nerve tissues, and between the nerve tissues and the various bodily organs. This relationship is such that certain actions of the mind set the nerves and muscles into activity. No one knows how the mind affects the brain to control it, nor how the nerve affects the muscle either to contract or to relax it. No one knows what the medium is between the mental and physical systems, nor even whether there is a medium. We only know that after the mind acts in its appropriate way these other actions follow in a certain order.

There is an extensive literature on this subject which sets forth many different theories and explanations. Some insist that no connection whatever exists between mind and matter, and therefore they claim that it is too much to say that these actions stand in the relationship toward each other of cause and effect; yet, practically, all admit that there will be no muscular or other bodily action if the mind does not act. This admission is sufficient because it sets forth exactly the condition which exists in connection with other cases of acknowledged cause and consequence. Thus, astronomers say that the sun causes the revolution of the planetary bodies, but they have never been able really to show that any connection exists between the sun and those bodies, nor to give any satisfactory explanation of the phenomenon.

Even if it be granted that the relationship is not that of cause and consequence, but merely uniform sequence, the sequence follows substantially the same form and order as cause and consequence. It makes small practical difference whether we call it a chain of sequences or a chain of causes and consequences. Therefore it is sufficient for the purpose of this discussion to say that mental action is the cause of bodily actions for the reason that bodily actions always follow appropriate mental actions, and never occur without their initiative.

It is universally admitted that the facts of sensation prove the action of the body on the mind, and in like manner the facts of volition just as conclusively prove the action of the mind on the body. For instance, pain may be claimed to cause a movement of the body; but between the pain and the movement was the mind action perceiving the pain and directing those bodily actions. With this direction and adaptation pain has nothing whatever to do. It may be said that man eats because he is hungry, and that in this he is governed by physical sensation; yet the consciousness of that sensation is a mental act of perception without which he would not eat, nor would there follow any of those complicated actions connected with digestion and assimilation. Thus analyzed it appears that it is mind action which sets the whole train in motion.

In the normal person the mental control of muscular action is wonderfully developed. The muscle moves in exact obedience to the mental command, as seen in the delicacy and accuracy as well as the strength and force of the movements. Note the forming of a letter with a pen on the written page, the strokes of the artist’s brush upon his canvas, the exactness of touch of the musician’s fingers upon the keys when he produces the precise tone that is required for the expression of his music — everywhere that delicacy and exactness are desired in the muscle they are produced by the mental action. It is called the result of training the muscle; in fact, it is training the muscle to obey the mind. If the mind has such control over muscular action, why may not its control over the other functions of the body be equally influential?

It may also be well to note right here a distinction that has often been overlooked. The movement of the arm is not the result of will power. A man may will his arm to move as much as he pleases, but unless the mind itself acts in a manner different from simply willing the arm to move — unless the mind thinks something entirely distinct in character from the thought of willing — the arm remains stationary. Even if it should be contended that the motion of the arm is caused by will power, the fact still remains that will power is mind power because willing is a form of mental action and the result of choice, and choice is itself a mental action; therefore the general proposition that bodily action is the result of mental action is still correct.

These facts, clearly recognizable by every one, prove that the mind is not simply a group of physical conditions and combinations in action, nor is it a product of them, but that it is something entirely distinct from the physical system though acting on it, controlling it, and conferring on it powers which, in itself, it does not have; and since every bodily action may be resolved into elements closely similar to these here considered, if not identical with them in character and relationship, the proof becomes complete.

That which thinks is the master power which moves, directs, controls. The combination of brain, nerves, muscles, ligaments, bones — these constitute a most wonderful machine that the mind builds and uses.
