Be Transformed By Renewing Your Mind
By Joe Helms
Be transformed by the renewing of your mind.
It is a truth for you to discover and find.
The way to change is to change your mind.
This is a universal truth for all mankind.
What you most often think about you become.
That is a truth that you should succumb.
Ignoring this truth could be rather dumb.
However, it is your choice to live from.
You become what you think about.
But what if you don’t believe this or doubt?
This law always works the same, it always comes out.
Good or bad it matters not, that is how you got the life you wrought.
At the end of your life, you may say if I only knew.
What could I have been or been saved from going through?
The pain I suffered and cried boo who.
And now my friend you know that’s why I’m telling you.
Truth like this is not hard but rather easy.
First introduction of this can make you uneasy.
By this truth, you discover you’re responsible which could make you queasy.
As you practice this truth, it does get easy.
There are two steps in unlearning.
First, learn something new to replace what you have been believing.
Second is letting go of the old and that takes discerning.
Please understand this renewing is just returning.
A returning? How can that be?
As you entered this world you were perfect and free.
But then came your ego, which edged God out, do you see?
The true you is an eternal spirit that will always be.
You are not your body or what you possess.
You are one with Him, greatly loved and blessed.
You are not your reputation. That is not even in you, I want to impress.
Your thinking is stinking and rather a mess, you always believe you are less.
So what thoughts or beliefs should you renew?
You are no longer separated from Him and that is true.
You are one with Him and that is singular and not two.
If anyone wants to see Him, He is found in you.
So be transformed, that is what He is up to.
Changing you from the inside, creating the image of His son in you.
According to your thoughts, faith or belief, it is done to you.
I have shared this powerful everlasting truth, what will you do?
I help my clients elicit change, enjoyment, and continuity in their lives by getting them to first change their thoughts through awareness. The awareness can come from understanding the process by which things come into our lives. All things begin with thought and our repeated, dominant thoughts become our beliefs. Our beliefs produce how we feel. How we feel determines what we do. And what we do or actions we take produce our results in life. Most people when they want change try starting with their results and that is not the place to start for lasting change. For lasting change we have to start with first cause and that is within our thinking. I will instruct the individual to first become an observer of themselves as well as others since we are all alike and have the same basic needs. One should begin to monitor their inner dialog. Listen to themselves talking to themselves. This is a good way to begin to notice our belief systems. Once one uncovers a belief, begin to ask good questions as to whether that belief is based on truth. This practice is hard in the beginning but like everything is life that is worthwhile it is worth the effort one puts into it. Practice does make perfect. Observing one’s self and questioning one’s beliefs builds discernment and understanding. Since our belief systems were formed in us by the time we were 6 or 7, most of them are other people (parents, teachers, relatives) beliefs that were fixed into our subconscious mind. When we were that young our subconscious was wide open and accepted what was provided to it through those relationships listed and our environment. So some of our beliefs can be buried and or suppressed and need to be weeded out through various clearing methods. A common clearing method is forgiveness. Since all healing goes through the door of forgiveness, healing beliefs that no longer serve us can be attained through this method. I will encourage my clients to empty themselves of negative emotions by forgiving others that may have offended them or to forgive themselves.
Replace those negative emotions with gratitude. Gratitude is a doorway to lasting change. Since one cannot function in negative emotions while experiencing gratitude. I will instruct my clients to choose how they would like to feel and then be that. Live life choosing instead of reacting to life. Become who you truly are, one who was created to have dominion to rule and reign in life. Our true nature of who we are is a divine spirit and part of the Creator. In Him we live, move and have our being and we possess the character of love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. We do not have to work these up, we already possess them. Just choose to be them. To further understand I will explain how we are made. We have a logical, thinking mind known as our conscious mind. We also have a subconscious mind that is not logical but is submissive and is your most willing servant, your emotional mind that controls all of your vital functions (heartbeat, breathing, circulation, digestion) in your body. Your subconscious mind never rests, sleeps or gets weary. So with your conscious mind you think thoughts, your most dominant thoughts especially if they are affixed to an emotion gets accepted by your subconscious mind and makes them true in your life. Your subconscious mind does not know the difference between fact or fiction. It just knows to take the command given it and reproduce that (whatever it is good or bad) in your life. As stated earlier your repeated thoughts become part of your beliefs. And it is a law of life that according to your faith (belief) it is done to you. So the saying as a man thinks in his heart so is he is true.
The process that works this out in our lives is known as the law of attraction. The universal language of the universe is vibrational. So your thoughts coupled with your emotions create a mood or vibration that is broadcasted from you and will attract and receive back like vibrations. Simply put like things, thoughts attract like things. Like attracts like. Positive thoughts can only attract more positive thoughts and results and negative thoughts can only attract negative thoughts and results. Just like, like begets like. Our thoughts which are electrical impulses are charged or magnetized with our emotions, therefore creating an electromagnetic current and attract that which they have an affinity for or exact likeness for. This is a law of the universe and works far beyond ourselves and lives to the ends of the universe to accomplish that which is desired. However, it is He the creator who does that work. He is in us both to will and to do. This is a law that works 100% of the time, showing no partiality, it only knows to work.
However, In quantum mechanics experiments, it is the one who observes that makes the determination. So what this proves is, we are co-creators with the Creator. With this knowledge, I will empower my clients to create what they desire instead of accepting what they are getting. So where do desires come from? If we just analyze the word “de” means “of” and “sire” means “father”. So desires come from the Creator Father. I will then encourage my clients to ask themselves what makes them happy? Or what would their perfect day look like? What would they do if there were no restrictions in their life? I would use this method of questioning to get to what they really want in life.
Once one knows what they want, which is desire, begin to make repeated statements to yourself that you believe to be true, which is belief. Then couple those two with faith which is a knowing and this builds expectancy which is a belief that knows that whatever is desired is on its way. This is how the law of attraction works in our life. However like other laws of the universe you can use specialization to achieve results. Just are the Wright brothers used lift and drag to work with the law of gravity. We can use specialization to enhance our results of the law of attraction. For our purpose, we can use creative visualization to create a picture within our conscious mind of the exact end results we desire. Added to the visualization we can add imagination which is perfectly limitless to create a clearer image. Understand the law is precise. Fuzzy image, fuzzy results, and a clear image obtains a clear result. Use your imagination to tweak the image and make a movie on the screen of your mind. Building an image is very important because your mind thinks in pictures, not words. To prove that point, think of your front door. Did you see the words front door or did you see a picture of your front door? It was a picture. Now there is further work that needs to be done. When we receive something, we truly need to receive it fully. Believe we have it. As Mark 11:24 states: “Therefore I say unto you, whatever things you desire when you pray, believe that you will receive them, and you shall have them.” In order for one to believe that they receive takes faith, belief, receiving, controlling thoughts and on purpose emotions. In some words act as if. One must align their thinking with their desire, their words with the aligned thinking, align their emotions with receiving and take persistent aligned actions. The best part of all of this is you don’t have to know how it shall happen. You just have to see the end result in mind and the how will come and show up. A key in this process is not to worry or become anxious over your desire, just state your desire and know that it is on its way. Release it, just let it go. And constantly be grateful.
