This week we are introduced a familiar way to influence our subconscious. We are creating a “Movie Poster” aka a Vision Board or Dream Board made popular in the book and 2006 movie “The Secret” by Rhonda Byrne.
We are using creative ways to Neuro-link our Major Definite Purpose, Personal Drivers and Vision together while going about our day, thus merging the exercises with our life. We are interrupting our old neuro-pathway (old way of thinking) and creating new neuropeptides (new habits) by bombarding the subconscious with our intentions utilizing the seven main ways people learn.
Compass or Clock?
If you live by clock, your life is consumed with the immediate and pressing issues of the moment. People living by the clock focus on the short term. They find themselves racing from event to event scrambling to meet expectations and deadlines. When the day is over, they’re exhausted. A life that’s dictated by the clock produces, but at what price?
Living by the compass is more about direction than speed. Compass life is focused on meaning rather than the moment, reflection rather than reaction. It’s the journey that matters, not just the daily agenda. Far too often, the compass is forgotten in our rush to meet expectations and demands. Many of us have clocks in every room, but don’t even own a compass.
I ordered three pendents for myself… a compass (Dharma), a telescope (Vision) and a magnifying glass (Focus). I wear the compass around my neck to remind me to follow my bliss and the other two hang on my vision board as 3D representations of focus and vision.
My advice… Change your focus from urgent to important, find and follow your “true north!”
Concentration and Focus
This lesson in the Master key System really hit home for me. I have a habit of starting projects and not following through or completing them. This is why we fail to make any real progress. The same is true with our thoughts. Haanel sums this point up nicely.
Attention or concentration is probably; the most important essential in the development of mind culture. The possibilities of attention when properly directed are so startling that they would hardly appear credible to the uninitiated. The cultivation of attention is the distinguishing characteristic of every successful man or woman, and is the very highest personal accomplishment which can be acquired.
The power of attention can be more readily understood by comparing it with a magnifying glass in which the rays of sunlight are focused; they possess no particular strength as long as the glass is moved about and the rays directed from one place to another; but let the glass be held perfectly still and let the rays be focused on one spot for any length of time, the effect will become immediately
So with the power of thought; let power be dissipated by scattering the thought from one object to another, and no result is apparent; but focus this power through attention or concentration on any single purpose for any length of time and nothing becomes impossible. MK 6:19-21
