'Laws of the Mind'
The laws of the mind govern thought processes, perception, cognition and all that relates to the mind and how we think.
THE LAW OF SUBSTITUTION
The Law of
Substitution means that to stop thinking a particular thought, we have to
replace one line of thought with another. If we are thinking about
something in particular but wish to stop thinking it, then we can only do this
by switching our attention to something else. Focusing on a
different subject diverts the mind and makes it forget the
original subject of its attention.
THE LAW OF RELAXATION
The more the
mind is relaxed the easier it is to think. Trying too hard to think about
something can cause tension and stress. The secret is to take a deep
breath and relax. Meditate and calm the mind to think clearly and allow the subconscious
to bring vision and insight.
THE LAW OF SUBCONSCIOUS ACTIVITY
When we have
thought something through and decided to act upon it, our subconscious will
then set about doing everything that it can to make it happen. It will use the
Universal Laws to arrange situations, meet people and remind us what knowledge,
information and skills we need to make it happen.
THE LAW OF PRACTICE
The more we
practice something the better we become at it. This is true for anything in
life. The more we do something, the easier it is and the quicker and more
efficient we are. It is said that something has to be practiced 10000
times before it can be said that you have truly have mastered it!
THE LAW OF TWO FACTORS
A thought is
made up of two factors, knowledge and feeling. Knowledge provides the
information to allow us to assess something in a factual way and feeling allows
us to put value to the thought, which may or may not then provoke an emotional
THE LAW OF FORGIVENESS
It is important
to forgive people to find peace of mind. Forgiveness is one of the greatest
things we can do, not just for other people but for ourselves as well. An
unforgiving attitude means we carry strong, negative emotions around with us.
This will inevitably create negative energy and actions, taking us further away
from our good self and creating bad Karma. Much of the time, things are
rarely as they seem in life so who are we to judge another without the full
facts. We don’t know what has happened to the other person in their own
life to make them act the way they have. If you cannot forgive
someone, you will never be able to forgive yourself when it is your turn
to make a mistake. Some things are said and done that are hard to
forgive and forget, but unless negative emotion is released and replaced with
understanding and compassion, it will hold back our spiritual development.
THE LAW OF CAUSE AND EFFECT
Every cause has
an effect, every action has a reaction, what you give is what you get. All
things begin as a thought in the mind, this is the cause. How we feel
about the thought, causes an emotion and an emotional response will follow
if the emotion is strong enough. The emotional response prompts us to take
action. The end result of the action is the effect.
THE LAW OF FREEWILL
The only person in your mind is you. No one else can think your thoughts
or make up your mind for you and no one else can know what you are really
thinking unless you tell them. You can make up your own mind on what you choose
to do or what you wish to focus your attention on. In the end, we
alone are responsible for our own decisions and actions, no-one else.
THE LAW OF FOCUS
What we focus our attention on is where we direct our energy to and
the subject of our focus will grow. This could be anything from a project
we may be working on, to a grievance about something, to a pain in our
body that seems to get worse the more we think about it.
THE LAW OF INDIVIDUALISATION
Everyone has their own view of what they think the World around them
looks like and what it means to them. From birth, our mind and personality are conditioned
by factors such as the social environment we are born into, parents
who guide us, teachers and social media. Everyone has had their own
unique life experience which has shaped the way they see reality. If you
are unhappy with life then seek new experiences to change the view.
THE LAW OF CREATION
THE LAW OF EMOTION
An emotion is always preceded by a thought. No emotion can appear
without first having a thought and a feeling.
THE LAW OF MENTAL EQUIVALENTS
THE LAW OF MANIFESTATION
Following on from the Law of Mental Equivalents, to manifest something into your life, you first have to visualize what it is that you want to make happen. When you believe in what you are doing, the subconscious will take steps to put the vision into motion, producing the actions necessary to make it a reality.
