This week in the Sunday lesson Rev Pat asked us to look at what box we were ready to dismantle or release. I think of these as mental thought constructs. I remember once, having a whole lineup of what needed to happen in my life and in a particular order before I could allow the purchase of a particular thing. I didn’t realize it at the time until I became ‘aware’. One of the words Rev Pat said was key to dismantling our box. I did such a good job dismantling and releasing it that I can’t remember the particulars. I very much recall what I had created that was limiting my good. I do remember that a couple of the things were getting the right job and having enough money… then…could happen.
Our head or intellect is where the ego resides. Our hearts are where we tend to place the feeling nature part of us. Most males are seen as coming from the intellect and being logically oriented and females tend to naturally lead from their hearts with their feeling natures and become emotional more easily. The ideal is to have a balance between the head and the heart.
From the Revealing Word, the metaphysical meaning of mental is:” The mind assimilates what it affirms. Mental atmosphere – Surrounding or prevailing mental influence”
Metaphysically, “ego, Spiritual—The true self; an individual center in God consciousness; I AM; conscious identity.
Ego, adverse—When the ego attaches itself to sense consciousness, it builds the antichrist man, who has no basis in reality.
Fear–…a paralyzer of mental action; it weakens both mind and body”
The acronym for FEAR is False Evidence Appearing Real.
The ego likes to keep us safe and be in charge. However, when we have an awareness of what we are giving the power to in any given situation, for example, if it is fear caused from a lack of financial means. Once this is realized, we can dismantle that thought construct and affirm that “there is only one power and presence, God.” Knowing that the mind assimilates what it affirms, we can free ourselves of the thought or box that was restricting us.
Are you looking to manifest a new relationship or house or job? What might the thought constructs or boxes you have unconsciously placed that are blocking your good from you?
Remember to be gentle with yourself in your discovery like you would be with a child,
