Chapter 13-The Brain

This lesson is from January 11, 2017

Then God said, “Let us make man in our image, after our likeness. And
let them have dominion over the fish of the sea and the birds of the
heavens and the livestock and all the earth and over every creeping
thing that creeps on the earth.” Genesis 1:26

Yes, God created us in his image or likeness. From the very beginning,
God planted in men His emotions such as desire, faith, love, emphasis,
and hope. In addition, he gave the emotion of sex as driving energy to
be used physically for the perpetuation of mankind, maintenance of
health, and especially to be used with the other emotions as a trans-
formation of mediocrity into genius through transmutation. All this came
from the mind of God and was placed in the mind of man.

“God gave you a brain, so use it!” Words were spoken by parents, teachers,
and even some bosses. More often than not they were used as a question 
more than as a fact.

In this chapter, Mr. Hill shows it as a fact on which we can hang our hats.
Hill begins with the fact that the human brain is both a broadcasting and
receiving station for the vibration of thought. Hill states, “Through the
medium of the ether, in a fashion similar to that employed by the radio
broadcasting principle, every human brain is capable of picking up
vibrations of thought which are being released by other brains. When
stimulated, or “stepped up” to a high rate of vibration, the mind becomes
more receptive to the vibration of thought which reaches it through the
ether from outside sources.”

This “stepped up” comes through the emotions we use, whether positive
and negative or through the emotions or energy, we receive from the minds
of others, again positive or negative. This shows the deep importance of
doing our self-talk every day. This is the very reason, Michael Dlouhy,
Ken Klemm, Bob Shoaf, and others stress the importance of repeating our
self-talk 100’s or 1000’s times daily.

Here is an illustration: To make fresh butter you start with heavy cream
from milk. Next comes the real work the cream must be churned constantly.
If you stop too soon you will still have just heavy cream or just butter
milk which is alright if that is what you want. But if it’s the butter
you want you must churn over and over and over until the transformation
happens.

This holds true when planting the positive emotions given to us into the
subconscious mind. It is only in the constant churning in saying our self-
talk can we block those negative emotions which are ever ready to take over.

Thanks to Linda and Michael Dlouhy for creating Mentoring of Free as a source
‚Äčof encouragement. I receive energy from each of you on the calls and share your wisdom.
