Mind Alchemy Day 15 – Ask the Right Questions

Today should have been about affirmations but instead looks at asking the right questions.

I like this a lot. For me, it is analogous with properly preparing the soil before planting. After the weeding (getting rid of all those fears, anxieties and bad habits) your garden will look much better if you spend time tilling the soil, adding fertiliser and, perhaps most importantly, obtaining a visualisation of the finished (award-winning) garden – the intended outcome. You can then break this down into the right questions on plant and flower selections, use of colour schemes, form and texture, focal points etc. But you can only do this if firstly you see the ‘big picture’, the intended outcome.

To be really successful, your garden must become your great passion, your burning desire. You must devote yourself to it; think about it all of the time. Otherwise, borders will remain unfinished, colours won’t work, weeds may even return. You need to work at it constantly and love what you are doing. (sorry, I’m getting a bit carried away 😉 ).

And if you become frustrated and feel you are not making progress, then ask different questions or break the intended outcome into even smaller sections or borders or paving or whatever. But keep going or your garden will run wild and become overgrown with weeds.

So, are you asking the right questions?

Mind Alchemy

For the month of February I will be participating in Steven Aitchison’s free Mind Alchemy program. I have agreed with Steven that I will journal my experience on this blog. Hundreds have signed up and there is already a great learning community spirit. It will be awesome….

Who are you?

As we enter a new year filled with limitless opportunity, I wanted to share with you the Statement of Being from Wallace D Wattles “A New Christ”. Still your mind and become relaxed and ready to absorb the words. Read it slowly, and aloud if you can. Let the words flow from your conscious to your subconscious.

Statement of Being

There is one Mind, and I AM that Mind.
That Mind is eternal, and it is Life.
That Mind knows no disease; I AM that Mind, and I AM HEALTH.
That Mind is the source of all Power, and cannot know doubt or fear;
I AM that Mind, and I AM POWER and PEACE.
That Mind knows only Truth and ALL truth; I AM that Mind, and I AM
All things created and uncreated, are in that Mind; I AM that Mind,
I AM the WAY, and the TRUTH, and the LIFE; the LIGHT in me shines
out to bless the world.

To be perfectly honest I recognise all of this but it is certainly NOT my current state of Being. With practice, however, I know I am getting there. You definitely need to start from the beginning (cos it’s a very good place to start!). Believe in One-ness. Believe that you are connected to the Whole. You are part of all that was, and is, and will be. For example, it was always possible to have cars, the internet, land on the moon. We just weren’t aware or more especially didn’t believe it was possible. But the guys who made this and everything else possible believed. So, you too have access to limitless opportunities.

As for Health, well I spent most of the holiday between Christmas and New Year with a heavy cold and sneezing constantly. But a relatively minor life situation in the whole scale of the Universe.

As for the others… I just keep practicing. Persistence is the key if you are to become One and shift your habits. Your subconscious mind will act instinctively to help you achieve your goals. But only with persistence of positive messages of dreams and ambitions and affirmations from your conscious mind.

So, who are you?
