If I Only Knew
8.2 As the purpose of life is growth, all principals underlying existence must contribute to give it effect. thought, therefore, takes form and the law of growth eventually brings it into manifestation.
This quote takes me back to 2005 when I decided to go back to school to become a nurse once again to increase my salary. I was basically doing the job of an LPN, and not receiving what I should have been in salary for my work, and yes I did ask numerous times for a pay hike, I guess I just didn’t ask how much I wanted and the result was always limited. Goals set, and back in school part time doing my sciences all over again, my mind set on completion and I was enjoying my science classes, but in the process a another thought I had was that I really never wanted to be a nurse which was probably why I never pursued nursing after I completed my associate degree in 93. Jan 2008 one class away from submitting to nursing schools, I was rear ended and because of the way my body was position that accident opened up a can of worms for me. I had congenital back problems I never knew I had, until this incident brought it to the fore front, along with herniated disc from my neck down to lumbar and chronic inflammation, nerve pain and so many other issues as a result. I tried working through the chronic daily pain but in the end my mind decided I needed a break and the employer’s nurse told me to go home and heal. I tried to return after 4 months but I only lasted a week and went on extended medical leave that lasted for a year. Lost my position and no one in the hospital would take a chance on me. I lost 11 years there a cumulation of 6 weeks of vacation, sick leave and my pension. The pain and not getting any sleep, stress and depression where my daily thoughts. My aspirations of becoming a nurse where done. They weren’t my aspirations now where they? I realized that in week 2 that my subconscious mind knew my desire not to be a nurse and it apparently decided to make something happen, to take me off my course. The Law Of Subconscious accepted the demand of me not wanting to be a nurse and took drastic measures of putting that accident in my life to take me off the course of becoming a nurse, because of my stubborn ego, I was determined to be what I really didn’t want to be. I truly believe that. I’m not telling you about my chronic pain that I had for the past 10 years so you can feel sorry for me. I don’t need your sympathy, I’m a survivor always have been, I’m just sharing what I learned this week that would have prevented years of pain. Dwelling on my pain, those thoughts took form and contributed to my chronic pain all those years.
If I only knew about the Law of Growth back than. What ever we think grows. What we forget atrophies. I was manifesting my pain with my daily thoughts of it. Since taking this MKE class were being taught these 7 laws learning one each week and linking them together in our life with practice, practice makes perfect another law of the mind. Thanks to Davene one of our mentors, teacher and one of the creator of the MKE , she suggested to a fellow tribe member Rob, who had mentioned he has pain in his shoulder from a surgery, and it really bothers him when he does his sits. Davene suggestion was, when he was in a sit to tell his mind to release the pain away. Well I decided to run with that for myself, and it has been helping me Immensely. I was having a problem relaxing and now that issue is gone as well.
8.3 You may freely chose what you think, but the result of your thought is governed by an immutable law. Any line of thought persisted in cannot fail to produce its result in the character, health and circumstances of the individual. Methods where by we can substitute habits of constructive thinking for those which we have found produce only undesirable effects are therefore of primary importance.
Now That I know
Now that I know about the 7 laws of the Mind I intend to use them daily. I will choose to feed my mind positive thoughts and be persistent in my quest for true health. I will imagine every day that I am my ideal weight and I wake up every morning with out pain. I will imagine my hair growing back and feel ecstatic that it is, I will see my self confidently talking to people about my new business venture and showing them how much it will benefit there business or there life. I will imagine my self traveling around the world and immersing my self in different cultures and building new friendships because that is what I truly want. With the Practice of the Law of Subconscious, Dual Thought, Law of Growth I believe these thoughts will manifest for me. My needs are true health and liberty to travel to my hearts content. The Law of relaxation will prepare my mind for these thoughts and the Law of substitution will keep me on track to live in a positive state of mind.
I know this to be hard but living the way I have, looking at it now was definitely harder. I choose this new way of thinking, I practice every day to achieve it. I know there will be days that I fail, but I let that failure be a lesson and learn from it and live a better day after that. Law of the Subconscious: as soon as the subconscious accepts the idea it becomes a demand and it works constantly, 24/7, to manifest demand, accessing a reservoir of infinite resources. Well I’m thirsty for that to happen. I have work to do.
Be kind to Mother Nature, she’s always watching!
