When we left off last month, BOB was playing infinite “Whack-a-Mole” with our thoughts, bopping each one with a “YES” when it pops up. There’s more to it, of course, get the whole story at www.spiritwithasmile.com.
Since all us moles are connected under the table, it’s easy for BOB to move things around so we all get what we ask for, but it’s helpful to give our requests as much emphasis as we can. Thus we speak our word. We hope BOB will hear us above the din as we make more din.
Actually, BOB gets the request when we think it, but speaking it aloud helps strengthen it in our minds, and since there’s so much back-and-forth in our thinking, every little bit helps. The problem is sometimes the words we speak often work against us. Here are some of the ways we limit ourselves with our spoken (and sometimes sung) words.
How to Avoid Good Health
Your life today is the result of your thinking of yesterday, thanks to BOB whacking you with YES! If you want it to be different tomorrow, you need to sow the seeds of thought today. The first step is to watch your language.
When confronted with symptoms or illness, most of us find it hard to declare perfection in the midst of apparent imperfection.
Pretty soon, some are convinced this stuff doesn’t work and they’re sick of trying. Notice anything?
One of the most common declarations of limitation is in our unconscious use of common phrases. How many times a day do we say we’re sick of this or tired of that, or just plain sick and tired? Do you think repeating it over and over will make you healthy and energetic?
The trick in physical healing is to MAINTAIN your picture of perfect health, regardless of what’s right before your eyes.
That way, the only thing BOB can whack YES! to is that picture of wholeness. It requires constant denial of limited thinking, especially if you have doctors who think they’re BOB.
It can be done though. After a mass e-coli infection, Terry McBride was told he’d never walk again, would lose all bladder and bowel control, and be sexually impotent. He had it on the best authority. Well, maybe the second-best, because he and BOB had other ideas. Check out http://www.terrymcbride.net/.
Most of us haven’t had Terry’s “opportunity,” and I’m sure glad of that. I’ve found it hard to look at any physical condition and constantly affirm the opposite.
How’s your lumbago today? Are your allergies acting up? Are you handling your drinking problem? What about your high cholesterol? Do all these things REALLY belong to you?
Be careful about taking possession of something you don’t want.
When you speak of your disease, here comes BOB with the YES! That’s right, it’s yours. As long as you own it, you can’t get rid of it.
We buy into a lot of limiting beliefs when we think about food.
There is nothing you can eat that you can’t find somebody to tell you it’s bad for you. There’s plenty of agreement to the proposition if it tastes good, it must be bad for you. Limiting beliefs about health are just that—limiting beliefs that can be overcome. Why should limiting beliefs about food be any different?
If people believe their food choices are healthy, so it will be for them.
If they believe “my food choices are not healthy,” they’ve overstepped their bounds. My own belief system extols the gastronomical benefits of a good filet mignon. My taste buds stand up and applaud the savory blend of onions, grease, and whatever else is found only within the buns of White Castle burgers.
As an instant recap for those new to the BOB concept, It’s the Infinite “Being of Bliss”—The Intelligence, Love, and Substance that created everything out of Its own Stuff (even the contents of White Castle burgers, but the jury might still be out on that one). We’re all made out of the stuff of BOB, and our minds have a direct connection to the BOB Intelligence over the wires of emotion.
The messages of our thought are received, and BOB creates substance and circumstance in accord with them. When your thinking is positive, so is your life. When your head’s a mess, that’s what you create.
Visualizing health and energy is helpful. So is affirmation. I could go on in great detail about the benefits of all this, but I’m tired of preaching to you.
