Condition Your Consciousness and Have Your Heart’s Desires!
By Rev. Cherie Larkin – Guest Author
What do you want? A new home, new job, more money, better health, a loving relationship? Drop the idea of your desire into the fertile soil of your mind and heart and help it to grow there.
You help your desire grow when you realize what you want to accomplish is two-fold.
Spiritual law does not work for what you want while you are holding it solely in your head. Nor does it manifest when you are clinging to it only in your heart.
Your desire is fulfilled when you condition both your mind and heart to receive it. Your desires are seed-ideas that come to you from anywhere and everywhere. They float through the air looking for the right mental soil in which to land. The right soil is a mind and heart that is open, receptive, and loving.
Just as a vegetable seed to grow properly needs soil that is free of weeds; in order for your desire to flourish, it must have soil that is free of opposing thoughts and negative feelings.
For many people, when they think about their desire, their most prevalent thought is fear or worry and the whole brood of negative emotions that cluster around it like, uncertainty, disappointment, discouragement, or impatience. Planting a desire in this soil kills it quickly.
How then, if you’ve been a constant worrier or doubter, can you change the way your think and feel about manifesting your desire?
Ralph Waldo Emerson said, “A man is what he thinks about all day long.”
The problem is not with the seed, as Jesus taught in the Parable of the Sower, but with the soil. Condition the soil and your idea will take root and grow to fulfillment.
How do you condition the soil of your mind and heart to help your desire grow?
Start by removing the weeds of fear, doubt, and worry. Feel your desire deep in your heart. Love it with recognition. Fertilize it with concentration. Nourish it with faith, and activate it with your deliberate conviction of success.
Say to yourself, “I can do all things through the One who strengthens me.” “With God all things are possible.” “The dream for my life is now fulfilled in God’s grace and love.”
Fill your mind with thoughts of assurance, courage, determination. Surround yourself with a feeling of success and achievement. Radiate fearlessness, trust, optimism, and strength. Speak these affirmative words out loud right now and feel their power within you.
Once this trend of thinking and feeling takes over, any worry weeds will die out. You will routinely turn your thoughts and feelings to love, joy, and success and in doing so; you will attract the best of everything!
