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
