Mastering the mind, requires self-discipline.
Your mind is a chemical computer, which from the time of birth has been downloaded with the belief systems passed on from the collective down to the immediate family.
Many of these beliefs are distorted truths, which act like a virus, corrupting your natural power. The process of cleaning and removing these belief systems happens in stages, and requires a willingness to first become aware of your thoughts.
Once you recognize these thoughts, you can begin removing those that do not align with the life you are wanting to create.
The goal is making peace with the mind so you can use it for the creative tool it is meant to be.
This process can feel overwhelming at first.
Instead of trying to monitor every thought which is impossible to do, just stay aware of how you feel. Emotion is generated by something you are thinking – so the moment you begin feeling bad, ask yourself what was I just thinking about to cause this reaction.
Once you become alert, you can begin challenging your thoughts, and rewrite a new script. It takes diligence and practice, but it becomes easier and more fluid with time.
Mastering your mind is the first key to navigating your path in the most efficient and effective way.
