The Turning Point and Becoming Indestructible

Continuing the exercise I have set myself to re-read and blog my results from reading Creating A Bug Free Mind and Using A Bug Free Mind by Andy Shaw.

I am taking my time with this and the main theme that keeps recurring so far is to remember to keep going back and practicing two exercises, one is practicing 15 seconds of positive thought and the other is practicing no-mind – literally an empty mind, no thoughts for a few seconds (or longer if you can) . This is actually the second time I have come across this idea, the first time was listening to Esther Hicks, although if memory serves she spoke in terms of 17 seconds. Anyway, who’s counting? This is a difficult idea to get around for me particularly at the beginning – of keeping my mind free from distractions, thoughts etc. Literally where there is no thing happening. It is the basis of all that follows. It is, as Andy says, the backbone of success and it can actually create powerful change if you are in control of it. The whole basis of this is to gain control of your mind.

So, first question – am I in control of my mind? Or is it in control of me? The first exercise in mind control is to find a good positive thought from your past and hold on to it for 15 seconds – try and re-live the experience and most of all, feel the emotion of the original event or situation as if it was happening again right now. The idea is I should do this as often as possible as well as practicing no-mind and control of my mind will soon be mine again. I am realizing that if I cannot control my own mind then I cannot give it clear and consistent direction about where I want it to go.

For me, I find I am able to do the 15 seconds of positive thought and a few seconds of no-mind at times that I am not intensely occupied, like first thing in the morning or last thing at night. What I am trying to do now is to give myself reminders during the day to remember to try and be present and conscious, doing whatever needs to be done in the moment but at the same time keeping a part of my mind aware and conscious of the present moment and of how I am feeling right then.
It is important that I don’t struggle with this, or force it, that I just allow it to happen as naturally as possible.

Regain control of my mind… why? Because I deserve it, and without it I will not have certainty, and according to Andy Shaw, with certainty comes absolute power.

I am continuing to do the 15 seconds of positive thought as frequently as possible. I am finding now that this can last up to thirty seconds, sometimes more. This is a process which results in building up a sort of protective shield that makes me resistant to negativity and that of course is the ultimate goal. Every day I am topping up my “energy shield” by my 15 second positive thought sessions which make me more and more resistant to negative thoughts and puts me in the stream of positivity.

For most people, certainly in my case, entering the 15 seconds of positive thought is usually accompanied by a feeling of gratitude. Anyone who has read or seen The Secret will know that the premise of being grateful for something before you get it is the basis of The Law of Attraction being used deliberately. However my experience of simply thinking about something I want and “being grateful” for it was difficult for me to achieve. But with this 15 seconds positive thought process I find it happens automatically. So, as a bonus the Law of Attraction is being invoked in my favor when I do this. Cool or what?

So if I want more of something, or I want something I haven’t got, then I just need to be grateful for it. Now when I go into this state of gratitude and appreciation I am finding a power within me and an immense sense of relief that all is well, everything is ok and I don’t need to worry.

So, I have started on the path to complete control of my mind and am well on the path to certain success. Time only matters when I am worried that this path may end up in disappointment and I have to start looking again. That will not happen if I just keep reading, re-reading, blogging, holding myself to account for my actions and, more importantly, for my thoughts.

Until next time

    Hi Dee, I am grateful for the thing itself. If I was grateful for wanting it then I would get more of wanting it! It took me a while to get my head around it but it’s a bit like “act as if…” Or “think as if…” the thing you want is already there.

    Are you grateful that you want this thing in your life or grateful for the thing itself? (not expressing my self well)
