Awakening to living a conscious life means becoming more and more aware of your mind and your inner thoughts. You are listening to yourself and paying attention over mindlessly (or randomly) letting old thoughts rule your speaking. Thoughts come from your past experiences based on a great number of things. Being awake to your thoughts helps you take responsibility for what you think and how you speak. This will help you form new attitudes and create new mindsets that will influence your decisions and give you greater self-control.
Thinking about what you are thinking about helps you tear down old negative and defensive coping thinking paradigms that do not fit your end goals. When you increase conscious awareness of your thinking and see how negative thinking sets up walls that lead to hopelessness and fear of the future. Unchecked thinking can be random and very chaotic. Taking charge of eliminating and detoxing the old thinking that does not match the question, “Is this good for my outcomes and desires AND does it help advance my purpose?” If you cannot think of a way your thoughts are enhancing your future, chances are that thinking is “old school coping” and can be dismantled.
The next step once you tear down one thinking paradigm that isn’t working for you is to begin checking all your thinking patterns. When you find ones that reject your true worth and dignity, tear it down and put up a new thought to replace the old one that matches WHO you are now and WHO you intend to stay being. Keep the old thoughts from coming back by giving them no power or attention. You can even use humorous thinking to counter-attack an old accusing or defensive thought pattern, such as: “Where is that thought coming from? I would never think anything like that. It sounds negative and full of self-pity. My self is full of worth and value!”
When you begin to challenge the old think zones and bring in new thoughts to override that are closer to the Reality you know fits you, you will be amazed at how fast you change the neural circuitry of your brain. At first, it will resist and go back to default setting thinking, but soon, you will develop new pathways in your brain that match what literal path you want to stay on. Your brain is developing to match the desires of your heart.
When you keep stepping up to take control of a disordered and random thinking pattern, you choose to love your mind and keep it in alignment with your heart, and your spiritual growth will continue to follow. It is the spiritual awakening you want to encourage as it contains the living choices you want to encourage. The spiritual truths will set you free from the deceptions and false beliefs of the past that were contained in the old crumbling walls. Those walls contained gaps and holes where random dirt and other forces could come in. Now, you have closed those and only let in what is good, true, noble, right, pure, lovely and admirable.
This will fit who you are now in the present and you will keep stepping up to Higher Powers in yourself.
