Inquiring minds want to know your thoughts.
Have you ever stopped to listen to your thoughts? What do you tell yourself? Are they loving or fearful? Beautiful or ugly? Encouraging or defeating? True or false?
Our mind never sleeps. It’s powerful and always creating. Most of the time, however, we are oblivious to it.
God gave us a wonderful gift of free-will, and our thoughts are the result of that precious gift. Therefore, we control our thoughts—God doesn’t and can’t because of His endless love for us.
Now our soul—our beautiful soul—that’s entirely God. The center of our being or rather our spirit is the source of everything good, pure, and light. It’s always right and perfect because it’s always holy.
On the other hand, the ego resides in our mind and exists as a result of separation from Spirit. The ego’s primary purpose is to protect us from what it perceives as reality, and that stinker loves to be right—so much so, that it will lie and manipulate to convince us of what it’s telling us it right. (Hence the term—the devil inside!)
I’m sure this all sounds crazy but hang with me, and hopefully, it’ll all make sense.
A Mustard Seed
Jesus replied, “Because you have so little faith. Truly I tell you, if you have the faith of a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.” Matthews 17:20
A mustard seed is the smallest seed in the world, and yet when it’s planted and fertilized it grows into a magnificent tree.
Jesus tells us in the Book of Matthews that if you have faith as tiny as a mustard seed, you can move mountains.
A Course in Miracles teaches that when our thoughts and beliefs combine, a powerful surge occurs, and mountains move.
God’s mighty gift of free-will affords us the privilege to choose love or fear. We can either follow the Spirit or the ego. The choice is ours.
But, if we hold the power to our thoughts, how exactly do we choose love over fear?
Well, I’m glad you asked. God would like you to know.
We control our thoughts by releasing fear, or the negative thoughts that the ego is bombarding us with, to the Holy Spirit allowing our truth to shine through.
Speaking our truth allows the love of the Spirit to flows from our heart through our throat and finally filling our minds and thoughts. The throat chakra is the bridge that allows eternal love to conquer our misguided fear. (Don’t know what a chakra is? Check out this video. Intro to In-body Chakras)
Since darkness is the absence of light, then fear is the absence of love. Love cannot exist where fear resides.
By releasing fear, we give the Holy Spirit control of our thoughts. As a result, miracles are created, and mountains move.
Growing up I felt different and separate from the rest of the world. It appeared that everyone else got “it” but me. Although, I didn’t know what “it” was so I told myself that God must’ve created me by mistake and He didn’t love me, or I would’ve understood “it.”
I still don’t know what “it” is, but what I do believe now, is that God truly loves me but most importantly, has always loved me from the beginning of creation. I’m beautifully and wonderfully made!
Today this is my truth, and as a result, I’ve witnessed miracles created, and mountains moved. I have, and continue, to release fears that hold me back—keeping me from heaven on earth and my purpose. It’s a daily and most times moment-by-moment release, but it’s working, and I’m thankful.
What are you thinking…right now…this very minute? What do you want to finally release?
Try this breathing technique to calm your thoughts and let go of fears. Sit quietly with your feet on the floor and close your eyes. Watch and feel your breath as it enters through your nose, and flows through your body. Hold for a few moments. When you’re ready, exhale through your mouth. Visualize any fears and negative thoughts falling back into the earth.
Breathe in: I am light.
Breathe out: I release all darkness within me.
Breathe in: I am worthy.
Breathe out: I am willing to see the truth.
Breathe in: I am fearless.
Breathe out: I let go of attack.
Breathe in: I am love.
Breathe out: I allow the Spirit within me to lead me to my truth.
