“The All is mind; The Universe is Mental.”
Thoth/Hermes Trismegistus shared the first of 7 Universal Laws in both the Corpus Hermetic and the Emerald Tablets found in the Nag Hammadhi library in 4th century Egypt. We now understand that neural networks are the biological location of change. Change does not take place without rewiring existing neural connections or creating entirely new connections. We call these biological changes “learning something new” and it doesn’t matter if it is good or bad learning. Sooner or later new learning moves from inside physical changes (neuronal connections) to outside physical changes (displayed behaviour). In this way, we literally “become” what we think about most of the time.
Within our particular field of experience, our thoughts, feelings, and desires are the raw materials and building blocks we use to create our world. The power to create resides in all forms of consciousness, and consciousness exists in a state of supreme cooperation throughout all of existence. Consciousness is existence. And love is the primary source material, the vibration of pulsating cosmic energy that fuels every aspect of the field of existence. Our emotions are largely controlled by the stories we tell ourselves. The problem is that we tend to tell ourselves fiction and lies to create the emotions our subconscious wants to feel especially fear. We erroneously believe it’s safer that way. Once you control the fear, you can control the narrative. However, when we frequently ruminate over depressive or obsessive thoughts, we build a neurological database for depression and obsession, inviting in all the experiences that go along with it! Your brain has 100 trillion neural connections. These connections are the reason behind your automatic responses, triggers, judgments, and repetitive patterns, and also why you make the choices you do.
For thousands of years, many clever diversions have kept humanity from understanding the true nature of its power and natural talent for creating the world. For many millennia, limiting beliefs about our lack of personal power have been accepted as facts throughout the world. This was made manifest by focusing our power of attention on these beliefs. Such beliefs are agreements about reality, and they set the stage for what we encounter. Your state of awareness then determines how you respond to the dramas of life you have created. You have the free will to choose what you will, and what you sew will be yours to harvest.
“Every thought we think is creating our future.”
– Louise Hay
The most profound principle in life is that nothing stays the same. You are built to be dynamically regenerative and your brain is plastic, ever-growing and changing. Think of your brain terrain as a maze of trails and roads. Whenever you experience a trigger, the communication pathways in your brain take you to an immediate response. These pathways can be like overgrown dirt paths or high-speed freeways, depending on how many times the same pattern of thought-response has been repeated. You have the power to change your beliefs and master your mind to manifest what you want in your life. Good ideas are pretty common. What is uncommon is finding those who will work hard enough to bring them to fruition. Ideation without execution only leads to deletion. Choose today to act on your ideas so they don’t die on the vine. Excellence can be obtained once you care more than others think is wise; begin to risk more than others think is safe; dream more than others think is practical; and begin to expect more than others think is possible. If you want something you have never had, you will need to do something you have never done.
Human beings are creatures of habit. We repeat patterns over and over and over again. We think somewhere between 60,000 to 70,000 thoughts each and every day. However, 90 percent of those thoughts are exactly the same ones we had the previous day. That’s a lot, especially when they are unproductive, self-abusive, or simply a general waste of energy. The nature of reality is such that it will mirror, mix, mingle, and play with any and all types of energy without judgment. Your thoughts, feelings, desires, and emotions, as expressed in words and deeds, are all projections of energy based on your personal beliefs. As you become more consciously aware of your beliefs, you will begin to direct the course of your life. Every new pattern begins with a thought and is reinforced by emotion and the meaning we create through the experience. The brain is plastic, which means that, no matter how old you are, it can reform and rebuild itself in many ways, provided you follow the rules that the brain operates by. Until you realise how easy it is for your mind to be manipulated, you will remain the pawn of someone else’s game. The biggest game you will ever play is the game in your mind. Master your mind and you will master your world.
“Mind, purpose, passion and discipline are majestic pillars of the building of big success; the building can’t stand even if one pillar is weak”
Earth School Mind Rules
When humans choose to forget, deny, deactivate, and disdain their own power to create and to know (when they devalue free thinking) they become part of the drama – the game so to speak – that allows them to experience existence under the apparent control and dominion of others. The Earth School lesson plan for this involves issues such as fear of the unknown, fear of perceptions, and fear of being in charge of your own life. Overcoming fear of personal power is a customary stage in the development of conscious awareness. Nevertheless, the all-important question remains: How far will you go before valuing what is innately yours? The current acts of corruption, war, and tyranny implemented by world leaders clearly demonstrate their desperation over losing their hold on humanity. It is time for humanity to connect the dots. Events serve multilayer purposes and everything depends on your point of view. Are you willing to accept responsibility for loving yourself and the Earth into a state of wholesome well-being? Can you conceive of the momentous task you set forth to accomplish in this life? Will you choose to become the Conscious Leader of your own life, heal your trauma and allow the bigger picture to be revealed? Well then, you need to know the rules!
- The more you think the same thoughts over and over, and accept these as true, thinking pathways are formed.
- These pathways develop your belief system, which means they become the automatic tendency for your thought-response processes.
- This means you can learn and un-learn to become happier and build a mindset for success, which can only happen when we recognise these patterns, and actively change them.
The mind is the most powerful tool that humans possess. It can be used to help you attain untold levels of success or it can take you deep into the depths of failure. You must learn to use your mind to its optimal level if you want to live life on a new level. The mind is your key to success. Choose to be an example of someone who is actively, consciously thinking your thoughts. Be the Conscious Leader of your own life who can direct your thoughts – become the Master of your own mind.
“Some changes look negative on the surface, but you will soon realise that space is being created in your life for something new to emerge.”
— Eckhart Tolle
Insane on the Earth Plane
For many decades a hugely controlled and deeply corrupt media has directed the attention of the masses by uniformly reporting on a state of managed chaos that is scripted and staged to produce mental confusion and fatigue. The relentless reporting and rehashing of catastrophic and traumatic events, with images of despair and destruction repeatedly planted into the minds of viewers, creates supreme states of anxiety. In reality, this is a form of psychological warfare. Authorities play with truths, half-truths, deceptions, and lies to render you hopeless, feeling powerless, and thinking that it is pointless to do anything. This mind garbage passes as “the” news, and on a personal level it can rule your life. However, the controllers are well aware that when millions of people focus their attention on listening to the same words, seeing the same pictures, and hearing the same descriptions, tremendous energy is generated and a massive thoughtform is created. Thoughtforms are vibrational blueprints that hold instructions for manifesting reality.
The media captures your attention and then programs your imagination, essentially canceling out your unique creative drive to manifest your own reality as well as your desire to know yourself. You have been conditioned to believe that all you need to know can now be found in the wonderful world of electronic boxes and the information and entertainment they hold. When “the news” is slanted toward a message of continuous poverty and war, a state of despair and a sense of hopelessness are created. A paralysis of power takes hold because you become convinced that the only reality is the one that is described and prescribed by the authorities in the box. Reality is created and produced by each and every one of us, and those seeking to control the world have kept this knowledge a well-guarded secret.
“What we don’t understand has the ability to control us.”
Who Is Thinking Your Thoughts?
Your imagination is a priceless and powerful tool for developing and exercising your attention toward creating what you want in life. Remember that your thoughts create your reality so whenever you find yourself facing a puzzling situation, ask yourself, Why am I creating this? Asking why sets the stage for further clarity. The trick is to pay attention and learn to listen for the response – it may be faint at first. No matter what you are creating, your beliefs form the underlying foundation for all of your experiences. You must learn to be aware of your power to imprint the energies you are interacting with because you are using these to structure reality. Before you can become a Conscious Leader and the master of your mind, you must recognise that you are currently at the mercy of several unwanted “squatters” taking up valuable real estate in your head. Here’s the thing: they are in control of your thoughts, most likely without you even knowing it! If you want to gain control, you must get to know who they are and what their motivation is. Then you can take charge and evict them all.
The Four “Squatters” in Your Head
Name #1: The Critic
Background: This is your constant abuser who is often a conglomeration of:
- Other people’s words – oftentimes your parents
- Thoughts you have created based on your own or other peoples’ expectations
- Comparing yourself to other people, including those in the media
- The things you told yourself as a result of painful experiences such as betrayal and rejection. Your interpretation creates your self-doubt and self-blame, which are most likely undeserved in cases of rejection and betrayal.
Motivated by: pain, low self-esteem, lack of self-acceptance, and lack of self-love.
Why else would this person abuse you? And since this person is you—why else would you abuse yourself? Why would you let anyone treat you this badly?
Name #2: The Worrier
Background: This is your anxiety driven scaremonger who lives in the future – in the world of “what ifs.”
Motivated by: fear, which is often irrational and has no basis. Occasionally, motivated by fear that what happened in the past will happen again.
Name #3: The Reactor
Background: This is your wounded ego that triggers anger, frustration, and pain. These triggers stem from unhealed wounds of the past. Any experience that is even closely related to a past wound will set them off. Triggered by words, feelings or even sounds and smells.
Motivated by: False notion that this is protection. However, usually has the opposite affect and gets you into trouble. Poor impulse control run by past programming that no longer serves you.
Name #4: The Insomniac
Background: This squatter comes with an entourage, including the planner, the rehasher, and the ruminator, along with special guests: the critic and the worrier.
Motivated by: Self-doubt, low self-esteem, insecurity, and generalised anxiety, unresolved emotional buildup, taking care of the business you neglected during the day, as listed above for the inner critic and worrier along with anything else which causes sleep deprivation.
“We are, each of us, largely responsible for what gets put into our brains, for what, as adults, we wind up caring for and knowing about. No longer at the mercy of the reptile brain, we can change ourselves.”
How to Master Your Mind
You are the thinker and the observer of your thoughts. You can control your thoughts, but you must pay attention to them so you can identify “who” is running the show—this will determine which technique you will want to use to clear the decks. Begin each day with the intention of paying attention to your thoughts and catching yourself when you are thinking undesirable thoughts. This simple act demonstrates you are ready to become more aware.
Clearing Your Head By Serving “Them” Notice
#1 Evicting The Critic: When you catch yourself thinking something negative about yourself (calling yourself names or berating yourself), interrupt it immediately. You can say (in your mind), “Stop! No!” or, “Enough! I’m in control now.” Say whatever you need to say to break the pattern. Then, whatever your negative thought was about yourself, replace it with a counter thought or positive affirmation that begins with “I am.”
Practical Application: If your thought is, “I’m so stupid,” you can replace it with, “I am the loving operator of my mind. It is easy for me to reprogram the computer of my mind. All of life is change and my mind is ever new. I love and approve of myself exactly as I am right now.”
You can also have a dialogue with yourself to discredit the ‘voice’ that created the thought – if you know whose voice it is. If you recognise that you have recurring self-critical thoughts, you can write out or pre-plan of counter thoughts and affirmations so you can always be ready.
Advantages: This is the first squatter you should evict, forcefully, if necessary because:
- They rile up the Worrier.
- The names you call yourself become triggers when other people elude to anything similar about you because they trigger the Reactor.
- They are often present when you try to fall asleep so they perpetuates the Insomniac.
- They are a bully who is emotionally abusive.
- They are the destroyer of self-esteem. They convince you that you’re not worthy. They’re a liar! In the interest of your self-worth, get them out, now!
Eliminate your worst critic and you will also diminish the presence of the other three squatters. Replace them with your new best friends: compassion and encouragement, to enhance your life. This is a presence you want in your mind.
#2 Evicting The Worrier: Prolonged anxiety is mentally, emotionally, and physically detrimental. It can have long-term health implications. Fear initiates the fight-flight response, creates worry in the mind, and anxiety in the body. Fear can make it more difficult for you to control your thoughts effectively.
Practical Application: Recognising a “worry thought” by how you feel happens immediately. The physiological signs that the fight-flight response are:
- Increased heart rate, blood pressure, or surge of adrenaline
- Shallow breathing or breathlessness
- Tense Muscles
Advantages: Use the above-stated method to interrupt any thought of worry and then replace it. But this time, replace your thoughts of worry with thoughts of gratitude for the outcome you truly desire. If you believe in a higher power, this is the time to engage with it.
#3 Evicting The Reactor: Permanently eliminating this squatter will take a lot more attention (and reflection after the fact) to identify and heal the causes of the triggers. Until that time, you can prevent the Reactor from getting out of control by initiating conscious breathing as soon as you recognise the pattern.
The Reactor’s thoughts or feelings activate the fight-flight response just like with the Worrier. The physiological signs are the same. With a little attention, you should be able to tell the difference between anxiety, anger, frustration, or pain. We’ve all heard the suggestion to count to ten when you get angry – well, you can make those ten seconds much more productive if you are breathing consciously during that time.
Practical Application: Conscious breathing is as simple as it sounds – just be conscious of your breathing. Pay attention to the air going in and coming out. Do this for as long as you like. Leave the situation if you want. This gives the body time to normalise the adrenaline. Then you can address the situation with a calmer, more rational perspective and avoid any damaging behaviour.
Advantages: One of the troubles this squatter causes is that it adds to the insomniac’s issues. By evicting (or at least controlling) the Reactor, you will decrease reactionary behaviour, which will decrease the need for the rehashing and ruminating that may keep you from falling asleep. Master your mind and stop the Reactor from bringing stress to you and your relationships!
#4 Evicting The Insomniac: Not being able to turn off your mind at bedtime is a very common problem in this day and age. Without a restful and restorative night’s sleep, we cannot heal. Here’s a suggestion on how to master your mind and evict the insomniac and entourage. Focus on breathing – pay attention to the rise and fall of your belly. Now imagine the word “in” while breathing in and think the word “out” when breathing out. Elongate the word in your head to match the length of your breath.
Practical Application: When your mind wanders, simply bring it back to the in and out. This technique will interrupt the wheels of your mind from spinning out of control. You are in control of your mind and thoughts, and you are now choosing quiet.
Advantages: Your mind is a tool, and like any other tool, it can be used for constructive purposes or destructive purposes. You can allow your mind to be occupied by unwanted, undesirable, and destructive tenants, or you can choose desirable tenants like peace, gratitude, compassion, love, and joy. Your mind can become your best friend, your biggest supporter, and someone you can count on to be there and encourage you. Your intentions determine the experiences you create, and how you respond determines the outcome. If you choose to lie and manipulate your way through life and use demonic dark energies to augment your path, then you will experience the results of those actions. The choice is always yours, to do what you will. Regardless of whether you do or do not accept personal responsibility for your creations, what you encounter is always of your own making.
“If someone in the street were entrusted with your body, you would be furious. Yet you entrust your mind to anyone around who happens to insult you and allow it to be troubled and confused. Aren’t you ashamed of that?”
We're Basically Houseplants with More Complicated Emotions
Your personality is made up of how you think, act, and feel. If you are living the same life every day by doing the same things at the same time, seeing the same people at the same place, and creating the same experiences from yesterday, then you’re enslaved to having your outer world influence your inner world. You may even find that you begin to get sick. When a houseplant gets sick, you fix the environment the plant is living in, not the plant. Humans are also epigenetic. It is our environment that is influencing how we think, act, and feel. We tend to be victims of our personal realities, and the problem is that it has become an unconscious process. Here’s the thing: it’s only a thought and a thought can be changed. Because your same thoughts, actions, and feelings keep you enslaved to the same past personal reality, when you recognise the pattern and choose to embrace new thoughts, actions, and feelings, you will inevitably create a new personal reality in your future.
Humanity is being tested to become much more consciously aware of how to use the power of thought. You are born with a multitude of abilities, yet your cultivated beliefs insist you are powerless; therefore, these abilities are blocked out or eradicated from neural pathways at an early age. The key to solving the great planetary crisis we now face lies in becoming the Conscious Leader of your own life by activating the compassionate recognition that humanity has essentially developed a collective fear of the power to create. These times call for you to know your mind and your beliefs and to become an extraordinary creator of your reality.
“The universe works like an echo: Whatever thoughts you think, will rebound on you. Therefore, be careful of the thoughts you think.”
False Evidence Appearing Real
As you confront yourself and meet your beliefs, thoughts and feelings may peel off like layers of old paint, or you may well find yourself traveling through internal black holes and out the other side, journeying through parts of yourself you never even knew existed. Once again, your focused attention is a personal gold mine, and as you learn to value and use this inherent wealth, you can fortify yourself for journeys into both the inner and outer worlds. Where and how you spend your energy are exceedingly important in understanding how you create your life. Are you the captain of your attention or just along for the ride?
Your biggest test in this lifetime is overcoming fear. When the fear centre is employed by habit, the mind cannot think straight and rational thought is paralysed. Projecting feelings of fear onto your reality, in the absence of pending danger, distorts the body’s sense of integrity and creates a state of internal havoc that broadcasts fear into the mass consciousness and the world at large. Your body’s natural intelligence-gathering system works at great speed and in keen cooperation with your attitude and expectations. When you change your attitude, you will undoubtedly change your experience. Millions of cells seamlessly access and evaluate the myriad of choices you make in order to impel you toward encountering your desires. Each moment, your body is processing reams of sophisticated data involving the past, present, and future. Conscious Leaders learn to pay very close attention to the signals they send out by noticing and examining how they feel about what they create and encounter. Acknowledging your feelings can lead to deeper self-realisation because your feelings are always the key to figuring out your beliefs. Once you have identified the belief behind the feeling, acknowledge the role of the belief, then release it and replace it with a more empowered outlook. This is how we change the world – one leader at a time.
