Beliefs = Thoughts = Experience

My already established premise is that how I use my mind matters. Our thoughts, the ones we think consistently, are our prayers in that we are affirming what we believe. Some people think that their thoughts control them. They cannot help what they think. I know that my thoughts come from my beliefs and if I want to change my thoughts, I must change what I am believing. Beliefs are developed in several ways: by our experiences and by the teachings our parents and caregivers, and by society and the things we hear on a daily basis. Beliefs are the programs that we live by.

When I was a little girl in the 1960s, my parents spent a lot of time talking about the things they were afraid of. They’d sit around the table at night while we were eating and discuss the danger of flying in airplanes. They’d discuss the likelihood of getting mugged. There was a lot of fear mixed with some really good food.

I picked up on a lot of these fears and they developed into my beliefs. I had a belief that I wasn’t safe in the world. However, over the years through the study and practice of the Science of Mind and Spirit I cam to realize that those beliefs weren’t my own; however, I made them my own. It was a choice. Most of the time, we do not know this. We think we have no control over what we believe.

We can change our thinking by changing our beliefs. We can reason it out in a Spiritual Mind Treatment by pouring the opposite beliefs into our subconscious. It is a way of re-wiring ourselves. We are all capable of it. However, it is not always enough to just tell ourselves the truth. We must repeat it often and then we must live it. The more we live what we say we want to believe, the more it will begin to settle in, and before we know it we will be thinking differently and living differently. Things that seemed so difficult will become easier and easier. We will cultivate faith in the unknown and begin to trust the Universe. Really, it is up to us.

And, when things happen that seem to come from nowhere, we can trust that nothing comes from no where. There is a plan to everything. I believe it is a plan that we set in motion at some point and that all the players came forward to assist us. However, the plan is not set in stone. We can change the plan at anytime, by being conscious of what we are thinking and how we are living. In the end, everything is always unfolding for our highest good. That’s what I believe.

So, in conclusion, the truth is that what you are thinking about and wondering about is directly related to a belief that you have. If you want to change the pattern of your thoughts, you must change your beliefs. How, you might ask? By being willing to wonder about something in a whole new way. We must be willing to consider that life its more than what we have experienced in the past. We must be willing to let go and surrender to the unknown. Dr. Joe Dispenza calls it becoming no one and no thing. Ernest Holmes calls it entering the Absolute. In Quantum Physics it is the field of pure energy that we are continually molding  with our thoughts based on those beliefs.

What do you want out of this life? How do you want to live? What do you want to embrace and what do you want to let go of? It’s all up to us. It’s a choice. There is no belief that is right or wrong or true or false. It’s all fluid and we are always expanding or contracting our lives by how we think backed by strong emotion and feeling.

Love and Aloha,

Rev. Rita
