As soon as you have a negative thought, held for more than 7 seconds…..we gotta start over…..and keep starting over until we get 7 days put together, back-to-back, with a single negative thought.
A tall order? No……just kidding…..Yes.
Massive payoff? Yes…yes..YES
Abandoning negative thoughts for 7 days, all negative thought seems easy when we first hear it. We really believe ourselves to be positive people. After all, we’re sure we picked the correct company to work with…..we have a dream…..and all we want to do is help other people dream and teach them what to do so they can have their dream.
We get that by helping others get what they want and need…..we’ll get a lot more than what we want and need.
We are so damn nice 🙂
Negative thoughts…….naw, not us.
Yeah, I know….we think…..I may have a negative thought here or there…..but this is going to be a piece of cake.
So we all woke up Monday morning thinking this was going to be easy….after all…..we are in the dream-selling, helping others business…..we’re postive. Most of us forgot we were even supposed to do it….it’s so easy….and it’s easy to forget easy things….
That was about, say, 7:00 AM. By 9:00, those who are ‘observers’ of our own behavior had restarted the mental diet 10 – 20 times.
Is this really me? Am I negative? I’m not negative….OK, I had a negative thought in the coffee shop…..and 5 or 6 in the car….then I got a call from my spouse and stuff went wrong with the washer & dryer ….but I am not being negative….I am not negative…..these are just ‘normal’ reactions to life.
The facts are….they are negative thoughts…..all of them. So, because we know the only way to change the blue-print, create a new reality …..is honest observation and modification.
Does this make me negative? As a person?
See, that is a negative thought….the trick is to be a non-judgemental observer and modify our thought through practice.
Stimulus-Response is how most people look at life…..coming off Newton’s Law that for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.
While it is true in physics…..it is not true in the mind…….the world of matter and the world of mind….that is the laws that govern them….are opposite.
Master Key students who are emerging as Master….know that in the mind …..it is …..
CHOICE or NO CHOICE
The videos introducing the class and the material in the class make it clear that the subconscious makes the decisions…..unless we create a new reality, we default to the old, ingrained response.
Those who Master themselves with the Master Keys and the exercises…..create a different vision. By holding the vision, peppering the subconscious with it through our childlike [not childish] exercise….we create a demand….which in turn finds the supply.
Stone & Hill’s formula require a Definite of Purpose & Positive Mental Attitude……so as bury this new reality into the frontal lobe….one of the demands becomes a PMA…..and the supply of a PMA is available if we access. We cannot ……decide to not be negative…..we need to ‘fast’…..and since the Laws of the mind prohibit dismissing a thought…..we must not think about ‘not being negative’ but instead being positive.
By using the Law of Substitution …..thinking of something else……when a negative thought comes into your mind. Think about God….think about your dreams…..think about a pleasant moment with your kids, your husband…….your wife….
WHY THIS WORKS
It is not possible to hold 2 thoughts at the same time….while thoughts move at a blinding speed the truth is we cannot hold 2 thoughts at the same moment.
So if we substitute a good thought ….mind control…..the negative thought atrohies……..Don’t try to dismiss the negative thought or feel negative about having a negative thought…..Substitute a great thought instead….
Mental effort defeats itself…..so don’t press…but use the Law of Relaxation, which we learned in chapters 3 & 4…..negative impluse shows up, Relax the mind, like you do every time you sit….Law of Relaxation and move to a pleasant thought…..Law of Substitution.
BE THE OBSERVER
It is not Stimulus-Response for Master Key Masters like us…..it is Stimulus-CHOICE-Rresponse
If we are observer’s of our behavior, we can ‘see it coming’, a negative thought…..and CHOOSE to Relax and Substitute.
I couldn’t think about other things…..like the ones I suggested, God, memory with kids…..but what I could think of was Davene laughing after getting spun around and somersaulted by a wave at Polihale ….and feel the joy of it all……everytime a negative thought tried to enter, I would go to the beach and in my mind re-experience that elegant moment…..and it became a habit and the diet went better everyday.
MY MENTAL DIET PILL What I did make a small picture of this day…..put it on an index card [think about all the good stuff going on mentally with index cards…good feeling #1…..] put a shape and goal on it and everytime I sensed a negative may be coming I pulled it out of my shirt pocket and used the law of substitution ……..and thought about that day so often that I could get my mind there in a nano-second……effortlessly
