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
Give more…Get more!!
During the MKMMA course we have all been encouraged to have a Master Mind partner. My friend and I teamed together and decided to form a Master Mind Alliance for our business. Following the instructions on this course we developed a Business DMP. Even though we have our separate business we wanted to be of service to each other without reciprocity. There was no financial gain on either part but what we received was so much more. Our confidence had risen, we were becoming more creative and our skills had greatly improved. This worked extremely well but our working hours were longer as we were helping each other. An amicable decision was made and we decided that we could now continue separately on our own.
In the 2 weeks that followed things just did not feel right………I felt somewhat disjointed. I started to doubt myself and things were not as free flowing as they had been previously. My enthusiasm was a bit low, I had sleepless nights and my mind just kept churning over and over on nothing of real substance. I was not longer spending my time productively. Something was really not right and in my sit I asked for a way to clear this fog that was going on in my head.
I received a phone call from my friend near the end of the second week and she asked me how things were going. I told her that things were not going too well and I had also experienced a few sleepless nights. To my surprise she said that she had experienced the same feelings that I had. We spoke about our feelings for a while and we decided that we had such great synergy between us we would continue working together.
The following day I was listening to a recording of Success Through A Positive Mental Attitude. There were a few things that immediately struck a chord with me that Napoleon Hill said….
“A Master Mind Alliance properly conducted stimulates each mind in the alliance with enthusiasm, personal initiative, imagination and a capacity for belief far beyond anything the individual may experience when acting alone.
To be effective a Master Mind Alliance must be active. The mere associations of minds is not enough. They must engage in the pursuit of a Definite Major Purpose and they must move in perfect harmony.
The Master Mind Alliance gives one full access to the spiritual powers of its associates in the alliance. It is a master of established record that all individual success, where the individual has risen above mediocrity is attained by the application of the Master Mind principle and not by individual effort alone.”
Here was the AHA moment…..we had truly formed a Master Mind Alliance! This is extremely powerful and under no circumstances should it be underestimated. My experience this week has really shown me how much I have been fighting against the forces of the universe. There are some bits of cement that has chipped away but I can still see that I am still holding onto some of my old blueprint. I need to make a conscious effort and give up control as it serves me no purpose. I have to just relax, have trust and faith in all the material we have learnt on this course and listen to the voice in my heart. The universe knows exactly what it is doing….!
Thank you for reading and have a great week!!
