Exercise Your Thinking Muscles

Thinking Muscles. Changing old thought patterns that are not serving you well isn’t easy. I know, because I struggle with this, too. It takes daily effort to build the “thinking muscles” that support transformation. You need to be intentional about digging to the root of your unhealthy thought patterns, and then replacing lies with truths in order to change the core of how you operate.

Example Thinking Muscles

For example, as Christians we believe that Jesus died on the cross to save us from our sins and give us eternal life. Jesus wants us to have healthy, hopeful, joyful lives, and to live in prosperity and abundance. So why is it that when we’re faced with a difficult illness such as cancer, we tend to accept just one part of what He gave us—that He died for our sins—but struggle to accept that He also died for us to live in health and abundance? The reason is that our subconscious minds are operating on auto-pilot. We have not spent enough time exercising our thinking muscles to successfully reprogram ourselves to operate in unity with God’s truth. Getting to this place of unity is well worth the effort! When we work in unity with His mind and heart, and learn to allow this reality to be created for ourselves every day, feeling hopeful is the natural result.

    I agree with your comments wholeheartedly…Our thinking is, in the view of many, the source of ‘dis’ease. I agree that our Savior came so that we could live more abundantly in all areas. Changing old thought patterns that do not serve us well is….yes…difficult. Louise L. Hay is a great resource in this area. She will tell you that positive affirmations, used properly and consistently, can work wonders.

      Dear Grant, Thank you so much for your thoughtful message ! Cancer has truly invited me to live again in so many different ways specially when it comes to my thinking patterns. In my journey I’ve discovered so many beautiful seeds and those in identity I continue to work on daily. I make sure to gently bring myself back in alignment when I mess up and I know God’s grace covers me all the time. Thank you providing such a great resource… Louise Hay is so gifted and I specially love her quote “Loving myself and others allows me to be all that I can be”
      Thank you so much for reading my blog and sharing it with others. Blessings !
