Happy Friday MaxPower2u family!
I was listening to a very powerful message in a YouTube video yesterday about how we become what we think about. How we are constantly programming our subconscious mind either directly or indirectly. It was saying that everything that we’ve come in contact with during our life span up to now regardless of your age; whether a parent, family member, radio, tv, internet, social media, coach, teacher, pastor, politician, and so on, has had a hand in programming our belief system. We have been conditioned to think a certain way by what other people think or what their opinions may have been at the time. Granted, you could’ve had your own opinion, but that much didn’t matter because they may have had a certain authority or power over you. If you have had a chance to look at who and how this theory might be true, I bet it got you thinking about some of the things you believe and why you believe that way. Why do kids become hardcore fans of the Team that their family and friends root for? Why do you want to follow in the profession that your parents did? Why do you drink excessively, why are you tough on boys, why are you short with girls, why are you mean to animals, why are you wanting to save the Earth, why do you want to give up meat, why do you drink Pepsi instead of Coke, why do you feel that you have to pray a certain way, why do you think a four year degree is the best thing for you, and on and on and on. All of these things got me thinking about my own philosophy and how I felt humans or things contributed in the way that I react to life and why. I am sure that most of you have also done your own thinking and possibly have had to take a aspirin or two because of the pain it can cause.
I’m a strong believer of “we become what we think about” and that is why I have been working on deliberately programming my mind for prosperity and wealth for several years now. I watched affirmation videos, wealth meditation videos, read books on programming the mind, and I kept wondering when it would eventually take, when all of the affirmations, motivational videos, and reading through books would give me the break through that I needed in order to create the opulent lifestyle that everyone says we all deserve if we are willing to work for it. I also wondered if being a Super Hero in a comic book could in any way help to bring me more money and more prosperity, thus the picture I chose for this blog. I’m sure that it has some leverage some how! If anyone has ideas, don’t hesitate to share.
But, then it suddenly clicked, I remembered that I used to do certain things in my childhood that made me feel like life was going to be okay. Keyword: Feel!
1. I would pretend that I was a powerful Super Hero to the point in where I truly felt that I had powers to make people do things or to make things and situations appear when I really needed them.
2. I would spend time visualizing how things would play out and how they would become a big part of my life.
3. I would get around people that would help me create certain situations that made me feel that I had the power. Even if it was to get in a very needed meal for the week.
When I would do these things consistently, I was shocked when things aligned with the things I focused on and intensely felt about. I didn’t know what to call it then, but I knew there had to be something to this type of magic.
I believe Bob Proctor wrote about this in his book, “You were born rich”, how you must not only think your way to success, but you must create the feelings inside you to create that certain positive vibration in your life. Esther Hicks, the world re-known guru on vibration, talks a lot about creating the same feelings of a higher vibration which creates a vortex in which anything you want can be manifested.
So yes, the thinking about things is critical because you have to know what you are aiming for and then you must get in tune or in line with the feelings that will create or manifest those vibrations of creation. So I am going back to where the magic truly happens- I am going to focus on the feelings that are associated with the things that I want from this universe and get aligned to the creation force. It never lets anyone down and I know that it won’t let you down either.
Are there moments in your life when you question, “what did I do before I had a smart phone, how did I act in public, how many real friends did I really have, I wonder if I would visit my cousins more if text didn’t exist, how would I know where my kids are at all times without all the apps, or I wonder if I would visit that country if I didn’t have bloggers showing me how safe other places are, or I wonder how I would’ve made it to that appointment without UBER or LYFT?”, and on and on!
We have to some degree become magnetized and programmed to see our lives through the lense and video screens of what we think is Socially empowering us to become better prepared humanoids. Is this really true? My goal is not to cast a negative shadow on the ill effects of electronic hand held devices, but to shine the light on how people are choosing to empower themselves through these magnificent creations.
How truly impacted are you because of the internet, a smartphone, or a smart TV? Do you feel more empowered or drained because you feel that you can’t to all that the internet Universe has to offer. Well, imagine that you are feeling a bit overwhelmed because of Instagram or FB and Amazon or Google and the decisions you have to make about which one to use or make sense out of- what about your children, or your friend’s children, or the children of this world in general. Imagine the multitude of feelings and emotions they are experiencing as well from all of this GREAT ready made information, entertainment, and interactive worlds that they are exposed to that we aren’t really AWARE of because we are caught up in our “REAL” and “Virtual” worlds simultaneously. Even though parental controls have gotten much much better, there is always something that may get past the filter which our children are not ready for nor will they be for a while. But what killed the cat? Yes, curiousity! Because of our natural instinct to want to see and know more about things, especially things that are against the rules, a big percentage of children will venture out and explore whatever has caught their eye without getting an adult involved. And even though some kids try to tell us about those age appropriate things, we are too busy texting a co-worker, ordering an online item, posting to fab, downloading music or watching a Netflix run that we don’t always take the time to listen to what our child is warning us about.
I believe that it is super critical to pay attention to the most powerful computers on this planet first which are our children. They hold the capacity to be amazingly creative, loving, and to be socially graceful. They are the ultimate source of dynamic energy through their simple smiles, dance, and singing. Are they worth putting the phone down, turning off the smart tv, and giving them our undivided attention? ABSOLUTELY they are! For if you are not programming your own children’s beautiful and powerful minds - you can be absolutely gauranteed that somebody or something is definitely doing it for you. There’s plenty of time left in your day to fiddle fadle with your devices later. Empower yourself and your kiddos...
Again- it is just a suggestion to empower you so that you can give MaxPower to your own children and or family!
Can you ever be totally empowered or have MaxPower over your life when you are still blaming your parents for the poor decisions, bad habits, and or failed relationships? I believe that mostly everyone would have to be honest and say “NO”, you could never feel fully empowered to feel free to make up your own mind about how you approach the world. Don’t you wonder how many people actually take this blaming their parents approach? I think many of the one’s that say that they don’t blame their parents, may in fact feel it and act it unconsciously without them really knowing. It may take a few visits to the therapists office to get a sense as to why their parents still have a stronghold on how they act. The reality is that everyone’s parents do and did play a major role in forming our personality and our belief systems. The other reality is that everyone gets to a point in their developmental life where we have to decide how “WE” are going to live, whether or not we will ever realize that we are powerful beyond what our parents didn’t know, and how to put this new philosophy into practice.
The key is to fully accept that our minds are super powerful and that they can re-programmed in any way that we would love to program them. We can upgrade them, just like we do an operating system of our smart phones. The phones aren’t smart at all, it is us that have to turn it on and off in order to serve us properly. The same is true of our minds. So let’s stop blaming our parents, actually, let’s bless and appreciate them for the beautiful opportunities that we have instead. Let’s remember that we have the ability to create our worlds the way we would like to with fun work and consistency. It is your time!! Your time to give yourself the life you deserve.
