My life is transformed as my mind is… reconditioned

My mind is a powerful tool. The thoughts I think and the memories I recall shape my life experience. In the Bible, we are encouraged to “be transformed by the renewing of your minds.” I take this to heart, and it has a powerful effect on my life.

When I choose life-affirming thoughts, I have life-affirming experiences. A transformation occurs. My physical appearance changes as I smile more often, walk more confidently, and let my inner light radiate outward. As I develop greater peace and awareness, my spiritual essence shines more brightly. My inner transformation positively affects my life and the lives of those around me.

Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your minds so that you may discern what is the will of God.—Romans 12:2
What a day yesterday was. It began with this following offering from the Daily Word. Auspicious and so apropos given what the day involved for me. It was a GOOD day for many reasons.
I remain fascinated by the power of language and how we use it. Thoughts becoming reality. Are we capable of choosing what kind of day, moment, we will have (life as we know it)? There are many ideas about this. We could talk endlessly of all the possibilities.

Last night, I attended a lecture and book signing by Dr. Joe Dispenza, DC. Joe Dispenza became more of a household name after the film “What the Bleep Do We Know” became popular and its popularity went viral. I saw this movie five times, attended screenings that had the directors discussing the making of and took in the wisdom of the experts who spoke between the storytelling and of all the “experts” interviewed, Dr. Joe Dispenza was the memorable one for me.

The scene I can replay in my head on command is him sharing his morning practice. That practice is simple. He wakes and creates his day anew. As if it is his personal reality. And that makes all the difference.  Last night as he talked of his work and his way of creating and what the brain is capable of, he again shared that this remains his practice and that the hardest part about this simple and sacred ritual (even for him) is making the time for it.

We are all busy BUT transformation on a daily basis and beginning the day anew is always possible. And here is the simple, sacred, and profound question he asks himself, that I too will:

What is the greatest ideal of myself that I can be today?

    Thank you Deborah for giving words to our joint adventure. I too will reinforce this active and purposeful early morning routine by asking myself, before putting one step out of my bed: How best can I use this piece of life that has been given to me and not take it for granted. How not to use it for living on automatic pilot. By letting my body already experience what my deepest desire is as if it had already happened, I prepare the energies for making it reality! What a joy to speak this language and know that you are understood by the Universe. Thank you Dr. Joe Dispenza!
