Chapter 13 The Brain


The Twelfth Step toward Riches

The brain is an amazing tool. It looks much like a universe within that we can’t see.

Everything we say, do, think, and feel is done with our brains.  The neurons form the connections of our thoughts.

The thoughts we place in our brain become beliefs whether they are true or not.  The brain has no opinions untill opinions are formed by thoughts.

When my son Shaun was learning how to write, his father’s mother tried to force him to use his right hand to write.  I had to correct her thinking.  Her thoughts were that left handedness was associated with Satan. 

Oh how my blood boiled with this thought!  Excuse me but please don’t form these kinds of thoughts in my child’s head!  And I immediately let her know that I was left handed.

This shut her down completely and she had nothing else to say.

Wives tales and lies are thoughts that people take on as beliefs.

And they affect peoples lives in dramatic ways.  If I had not corrected her thinking, my son would have been thinking badly about his tendency to use his left hand over his right hand. He might have given greater thought and made a decision for life that he was not a good person because he wants to use his left hand, just from a terrible belief that was passed into his brain.  

The more we think we can’t do or be something, the more our brain believes we can’t do or be.   The more we think we can do or be something, the more our brain believes we can do or be.

Our brain makes these thought connections forming our beliefs.

And our brain connects these thoughts that affect our behavior.

Hill States, “The subconscious mind is the “sending station” of the brain, through which vibrations of thought are broadcast. The Creative Imagination is the “receiving set,” through which the vibrations of thought are picked up from the ether.”

So to further understand the power of the brain, the brain is ours to program.  This is the awesome gift given to us by our creator. We get to decide about our lives and are given an immeasurable power to create our realities. We get the awesome ability to attract the universal energy provided to us.  It can be bad energy or good energy.  It’s our choice.

That’s it, we can change your lives by thinking and believing the good positive thoughts that affect your behavior.

That’s why our self talk is necessary because our lives are full of many wives tales and lies as we were growing up and many of us have not become aware of them. And everyday we are bombarded with messages, good or bad, passing through our brains.  We are in charge of what we allow into our brain as thoughts we believe.  So being the keeper of our brain and guarding it is absolutely necessary if we are to grow and perform.  Guarding our mind allows us to become responsible for our lives and not letting others decide our lives for us. 

Self examinations starts the process of emptying the bad thoughts and filling our minds with truth.

Once we do this, we’re on our way to creating the kind of reality we believe in because it is our destiny to become who we are and decide what we believe.

What do we believe?

I hope for all of us here that we believe we can and we are!

I believe I am creating my reality now because I do my self talk and that my friends is the key to programing ourselves, changing our limiting beliefs to saying we can and we are creating our realities.

Much love and appreciation,
