Does it matter if you are a righty or a lefty?? For so long I bought into the fact that I was a predominant lefty and that is how I was best to learn and be creative – and no I dont mean my writing style. Its my “brain style” ! (well what I thought was my brain style!).
Turns out this really is just a bunch of malarkey and here is why…. even though one side of the brain tends to be a favoured processing style for information that is received, it is critical, critical, that you combine BOTH sides of the brain to truly enhance your learning experience. Your Corpus Callosum (yes I know that made me go “huh?!!” the first time I heard it too!) is the bridge between the two hemispheres of the brain, acting as the highway in the brain upon which information passes from one half of the brain to the other, and if you truly learn to engage BOTH sides of the brain, effortlessly…. its game over. You win. If you need more validation here is just some the “sciency stuff” to back this up.
It is unbelievably amazing how the MKMMA team have developed the exercises with SUCH precision and excellence to be able to do just that… and the deeper in we get, the more clarity I am experiencing, and it is blowing my mind (in a scary but oh so exciting way!!)
We are still focusing on increasing FEELINGS and ENTHUUUUSIASM (yes both words, capitalized, bold-ed, italic-ed AND underlined!!! Do you feel the importance?!!) because we are creating AH-MAZing new peptides for our brains to become addicted to. Out with the old, in with the new!
So important to tie this point together is from Week 8, Sentence 19
“You can not entertain weak, harmful, negative thoughts 10 hours a day and expect to bring about beautiful, strong and harmonious conditions by 10 minutes of strong, positive, creative thought”
So anyone who tells you, “all you have to do is say your affirmations” is telling you a load of BULL…. poo!!!
Unless, unless, you begin to focus on the world within, you can chant ALL the affirmations in the world and the only thing you will end up with is a dry mouth!!
This week, we are focusing on a BEEEEUTIFUL law of the mind –
The Law of Growth. Whatever we think about grows. Whatever we forget atrophies.
Getting to know, love and understand this law has been POWERFUL for me this week. It has given me strength and courage to deal with a situation that completely shocked me. My beautiful little girl on Tuesday, as we were getting ready for school broke down into tears. When I asked her what the matter was, she said she just doesn’t like her face and she does not understand how people would want to be her friend with a face like hers….. OMG!!!! My heart skipped a beat at first, I was floored….. she is only 6!!!!
I am eternally grateful for this course, because I was able to talk through with her about the mind, what she feels and believes and we came to the outcome (very simplified) that it was her brain playing tricks on her…. so this week, to her little plan of action/service card, we will be adding my new love “I am whole, perfect, strong, powerful, loving, harmonious and happy”. We will say it, together, and in front of the mirror as many days as it takes her to BELIEVE… I REFUSE to watch the cement start to grow around her beautiful soul (particularly so young!)
A certain favourite “goosey” clip comes to mind!!!
To finish with Haanel this week
Part 9 Sentence 27; Man is the sum total of his own thoughts; so the question is, how are we going to entertain only the good thoughts and reject the evil ones? At first we cant keep the evil thoughts from coming, but we can keep from entertaining them. The only way to do this is to forget them – which mean, get something for them. This is where the ready-made affirmation comes into play
Sentence 28; When a thought of anger, jealousy, fear or worry creeps in, just start your affirmation going. The way to fight darkness is with light – the way to fight cold is with heat – the way to overcome evils is with good. For myself, I never could find any help in denials. Affirm the good, and the bad will vanish. – Frederick Elias Andrews
Im gonna have me a “BADD-ass mudda, who dont take no crap off of nobody!!!” lol…. Or at least she will believe she is beautiful and loved 🙂
Gratful. Forever grateful.
