At my daughter’s ballet lesson the other day, I got talking with another mum, whilst waiting for the girls to finish their lesson. She mentioned that her daughter was not having a great time at school. A group of girls were segregating her from the group. One of the girls kept calling her stupid. I was shocked by this, we are talking about 5 year olds. This had affected this little girl so much. If she accidentally dropped something on the floor and her mum asked what happened, she would say it’s because she is stupid and burst into tears. I could see the pain in this mothers eyes, my heart sank just sank.
Children are so innocent and pick up on the things they hear other people say or do. We as parents can only do so much to safe guard them from negativity but they hear and see things from their peers, TV and our environment. This is how the cement starts to set in. Already the Law of Growth was taking form. This lie had seeped into this little girls subconscious mind, she believed what was being said.
It is so empowering to know what is truth. Haanel states that “It is often true that conditions of fear, worry, poverty, disease, inharmony and evils of all kinds dominate us by reason of false suggestions accepted by the unguarded subconscious mind. All this the trained conscious mind can entirely prevent by its vigilant protective action. It may properly be called “the watchman at the gate” of the great subconscious domain”. This even happens with 5 year olds..!
The beauty of everything that I have learnt is that the conscious mind it the watchman at the gate. By feeding our mind with what is truth the conscious mind can override the subconscious through the use of auto- suggestion. The conscious mind has no defence against our own voice. Using the Law of Substitution this little girl can erase these negative thoughts by replacing it with a pleasant thought. My mind flashed back to a film that I had seen and something that I do with my daughter. I shared it with this mum. It was to write the words I AM Kind, I AM Smart, I AM Important on a card so this little angel can read it every day.
This week I have noticed that I have been very much the observer of my thoughts, being the watchman at the gate..!
Have a fantastic week all

This was a fantastic documentary, extremely insightful and definitely one to watch. It is based on Tom Shadyac the movie director of Ace Ventura and Bruce Almighty. From an accident Tom experienced Post Concussion Syndrome. Being so close to death lead him to rethink his priorities in life and there were two questions that he wanted to know. What’s wrong with our world? and, What can we do to change it?
Tom had everything that you could think of, money, the great big house in Beverly Hills, private plane. Our culture said it was the measure of the good life however, all this was totally insignificant as it did not make him feel any happier. The truth is that wealth does not give you the happiness you seek..! It made me think about the things in life that a lot of us seem to gravity towards, those symbols……such as the perfect house, nice cars and money. We become selfish and forget the most important things that is staring us in the face. The things that money cannot buy like, our families, kindness, love and being true to ourselves. Our first point of focus should be on ourselves, knowing exactly who we are, finding the I within..! It is said that “change is the result of a million tiny acts” and It became apparent how the 7 laws of the mind is the road map to it all, this is how we find our way to be at peace with ourselves and able to give to others freely from the heart showing each other kindness, forgiveness and love. If we all done just a little bit it would make society a better place.
Not even money could have changed Tom’s fate if it was his time to go. This made me think about Og scroll V that we have been reading this month, to “live each day as if it is your last.” I am privileged to be here on this journey of life and it has made me realise that this precious gift that I have been given should not be taken for granted or wasted. I have been put on this earth for a purpose, it was not by chance and it must be respected and upheld in the highest regard.
What I took away from this documentary that was so rewarding is that each and everyone of us has the power to change and transform our lives and the world around us..!
If you are ready to make that transformation but not sure where to start, then please accept my gift for a FREE 7 Days To A New Life on the right of this post. This will put you on the right path.
I would like to thank each and everyone for taking the time to read my post.
