The Mind

The mind is a tool. It’s a mechanism that controls every aspect of your life and body.

The body would not work without the mind. There is a part of the stomach that sends a message to the brain to tell the arm or the leg or whatever it is. It sends a price of paper up to your brain telling it what to do. That’s how my science teacher explained it in 8th grade.

So when a certain part of your brain isn’t working then that part of your body won’t work.

With that said it’s the same thing with our thoughts and energies that we pick up one with the way we are raised. Stuff passed down from generation to generation and obviously down to you.

So…. later in life when you want something different in your life. Something better than what you had before there are certain things you have to do. One of them is you have to change the way you think.

How do you do that? Well it isn’t easy. This involves changing a lot. You have to know that whatever is going on in your life is coming from GOD. Then you have to be thankful for it. Then you have to learn how to pray about it. Let him lead you to parts of the Bible in which will show you what needs to take place.

Then you have to ask him to show you your character defects. You may ask what does this have to do with your brain. My extraordinary friends everything.

Why?

Because he has your mind at this point. How? Because he has made so many things that have happened to you make you want something different, right! It’s like your done being done. Your sick and tired of being sick and tired. So the only thing you can do is look up right!

That’s exactly what he made you do. This is where people fail. It gets hard. The reality of being shown a character defect is hard so you quit reading you quit going to church you stop everything that your being taught because it’s to hard.

It is hard. I remember when I first started on this Spiritual Journey and I say I in which that’s a lie it was GID that started this. Nonetheless I was blaming everyone for my own bs. As he started pointing out my behaviors through reading I started feeling like an ass. Excuse my language however that’s the truth.

It wasn’t just that, that he was pointing out. He was pointing out being jealous, my language, the way I talked down to the way I walked and carried myself. I think my language was the hard one to take in. I was a sailor omg. Not so much in public however you know how we minimize things. Being taught how degrading it is to my Brain per the Bible I started to think about it more. Like maybe this is the first thing I need work on. So I did.

As time went on the language got easier. Down to very little to no cussing at all a few years later. Yes I said a few years. When you do something for a long time it becomes your way of living that’s why it takes so long to break a habit. It’s the same thing you have to let go and the only way to do that is changing the way you think about that certain behavior. Make sense?

So then he started working with me on other things. The next one was teaching me to hear his voice. At this time I was not hearing voices. None!

How did he teach me to hear his voice. Well he started talking to me through people. I would not do or would not follow through with something that someone was trying to teaching me. He had everything ready and I would get frustrated and quit.

When I did that I would go somewhere most of the time to the liquor store and there would be some kind of conversation going on with the customer before me and the clerk. It would have everything to do with what I was doing or not doing with whatever I quit on, it happened all the time.

So one he was teaching me that he was there and everything that was going on was coming from hi. Two he was teaching me a character defect that I needed to work on and three to trust him, and forth he was teaching me how he can control peoples mind.

I think at one point I caught a lot of criticism for saying this. And that’s okay. Whatever is true for you is true for you. I only say what I know to be true for me in my life and what I’ve been taught.

Now these are just a few ways that he has shown me about the mind. It goes on and on through the years to take a look at jealousy, envy, hatred fighting, judging, being opinionated . And so much more.

He made me a fool to make me wise and yet still am a fool in so many ways. It’s super difficult to stay on track because of the energy that surrounds me. Now this part isn’t as bad as it used to be. It used to be super bad. I grateful that it isn’t so much anymore.

The bottom line of this blog is that when you stay in the same mindset that you have been in for years it’s hard to change. Just know that when that thought comes to mind that you want something more for your life. That thought comes from GOD. That’s when it is time to pay close attention to what people say to you. What’s brought forth to you via T.V, articles, a encouraging message on Facebook. When you hear or read something that goes straight to your heart and you start thinking about it more. It comes from GOD to get your attention. Listen!

After GOD changed my mind to be one minded with him meaning i was no longer helots, I was no longer angry I had peace and joy. Happy all the time. Nothing that was going on in my life way a big deal. It was just alright well that is what it is and I know that GOFs got my back and that’s that, with so much joy in my heart I can’t explain it.

I thought that other blessings where going to come. I stopped doing a lot of things that I was doing however I didn’t stop long enough for those blessings to take place. See you guys we quit to soon. Then go back to the same pattern of thinking depending how far along you go with GOD.

Then it’s twice as hard to come out if later when you get sick and tired of being sick and tired.

My Extraordinary Friends I love you and GOD loves you. Don’t quit when your almost there.

Let him renew your mind. He will. With that you’ll be one in him and he in you. He will lead you, protect you in all things, love you unconditionally and be everything you need until he’s finished with you. Meaning you get the blessing that started you on your Spiritual Journey.

Please let me know if you got anything from this blog or any other blog. I appreciate you all so much! Much love always!

Don’t boast about tomorrow, for you do not know what a day may bring Proverbs 27:1

This Proverb especially rings true to my thinking all the time. When it came to me a lot over these last 5 years 5 months and 27 days of today it makes me think about the things I say.

What I wish for and what I want and say are two different things. What I wish for is what is held in my heart. That’s for GOD to make come true. I found over the years that talking about it only delays what could actually happen. Boasting about what you know to be true as I did in the first couple years of this Spiritual Journey didn’t get me anything but heart break.

When I say heart break it was for a few hours then GOD would bring me back and say where is your faith. Your journey is just beginning relax.

What he was telling me is that I had so much to learn about Wisdom. Wisdom doesn’t come free by any means. To gain true pure wisdom is hard and daily work in the mind, noticing the change that needs to be done in Character and the way we act, and let’s not forget our thinking.

So with that said don’t boast about what rather you know it to be true of not. Have faith that whatever it is that your boasting about that GOD will bring it to you. Or if you already have what you want boast how GOD provided it for you.

Somewhere in the Bible probably another proverb, that if you boast of anything let it be of GOD.

Let another praise you, and not your own mouth; a stranger, and not your own lips. Proverbs 27:2

This Proverb taught me that everything comes from GOD. It didn’t make sense to me at first. When we brag about what we have we are giving ourselves credit and the credit that is to GOD for giving you the things you have.

If you do something good for someone let that person say thank you and leave it at that. Don’t go say I did XYZ for this person expecting praise for really honestly doing what GOD would do for the fellow neighbor. Again this is another one that taught me to have faith, and that everything comes from him. And he will praise you by listening to this Proverb. It’s changing your character to be of the character to GOD. And it is part of the 10 Commandments. It’s Commandment 1 you shall love the lord GOD with all your heart and all your soul.

Be wise, my son, and make my heart glad, that I may answer him who reproaches me. Proverbs 27:11

The prudent sees danger and hides himself, but the simple go on and suffer for it. Proverbs 27:12

I can relate to this one as of right now. My life seems to be sometimes I feel in danger. Then GOD says your protected. I often find myself hiding or isolating. I do this because of feeling like I’m in danger. Yet I don’t know if I’m in danger because I don’t always obey GOD, or if it’s because of my faith, or if it’s because of my relationship with GOD or a combination of all things.

Reading that Proverb I can also relate to being simple. Having an attitude if I really don’t care what other people think. The relationship I have with GOD is one that you can have too. So I can just keep my faith and be simple and suffer.

This is a very simple Proverb yet so difficult. The process of change it’s hard. Different perspectives are welcome to all thoughts. For sure. I feel like no matter what I would do there would be someone out there trying to gain on me. That’s ok. GOD is in control.

As in water face reflects face, so the heart of man reflects man. Proverbs 27:19

This one is simple to and often brings me to thought about what I think about myself. The self talk and bs that I tell myself is bs. That’s the reflection of the face looking in the mirror. I honestly don’t do that to often. However the 2nd part of this Proverb is my heart in which is full of Love. Yeah sometimes I can be very selfish. That to is a part of my relationship with GOD with my mental Status. That will seem very complicated to some and not for others when explained later. This is a part of the mind that is crazy. More to come.

Ask yourself when you look in the mirror what do you see. I can tell you I see someone that is fighting everyday to keep sane. Fighting to keep the voices from taking over my mind. Praying to GOD please don’t turn me crazy. Please GOD whoever who is doing witch graft to stop. I pray everyday that I’m not so space and can fight whatever it is that a hold of me. And it’s working for the most part but some of it is my actions of what I choose to put in my body.

Maybe someone out there can relate to what I’m going through mentally and maybe not because it’s my personal relationship with GOC. I don’t know. All I’m saying is when I look in the mirror in which I don’t do to often. Like look at yourself in the mirror. Is what I see is just someone who is trying hard to overcome these voices, having decernment on top of Being backwards, and I think the worst is the gas lightening. That’s what I see. How am I going to fix it. How can I fix it? Anyone relate?

Know well the Condition of your flocks, and give attention to your herds, fir riches do not last forever; and does a crown endure to all generations. Proverbs 27:23-24

Who are you around to be paying attention to and who should have special attention too. Those who want to harm you are the ones that don’t need your attention or energy of asking why. Those that are there for you are the ones that need special attention and everything else will fall into place. It’s the wiser you get that you are killing that curse of past generations. The crown could live forever under a legacy or something you’ve done to make a mark in peoples life. Princess Diana, Martin Luther Kind, Micky Mantle to name a few. Ever High Heftner and he was truly a prostitute really.

These are how reading Proverbs help me with new thinking. It puts different ways of thinking on my mind to become like minded with GOD.

When the grass is gone and the new growth appears and the vegetation of the mountain is gathered, the lambs will provide your clothing, and the goats the price of the field. There will be plenty of Goats milk for your food, for the food of your household and maintenance for your girls. Proverbs 27:25-27

It’s a change it’s a brand new way of thinking. To learn that all things come from GOD is key to changing the way you think to become one minded with him.

Much Love My Extraordinary Friends.

Do you see a man who is wise in his own eyes? There is more hope for a fool than for him. Proverbs 26:12

When I read this scripture and think about it in my own life. It’s like a sword to the Hearst I’m so many ways. Truly being wise is so easy yet, yet being a fool is even easier than being wise.

Isn’t it amazing how that works. It’s easier to be bad than it is to be good. It’s easier to make excuses of why we can’t do certain things in our life. Especially the things that we are expected to do. Such as daily chores, work, routines etc. it’s easier to procrastinate than it is to do what we are to do.

Now if you think of just the opposite of know that there is a purpose for your life, you know it’s out there, you know it’s waiting and still you procrastinate. Everything you ever dreamed possible us sitting at your feet waiting.

So then would that make you a bigger fool? No! It doesn’t just means you have to continue to gain more knowledge and understanding of what you are to do. The will, the passion, the love for people and of course spreading the word of your Father who sits in Heaven. Quit being lazy.

As the door turns on its hinges, so does a sluggard in his bed. Proverbs 26:14

(Sluggard means lazy)

In a person with the 9 to 5 job. The thought of the world is that if you work your job than you are not considered a lazy person. A person that works any job is not considered lazy because they are working no matter the time. However, the person that works and doesn’t do chores, cleaning, errands…. the house is a mess the lawn is not mowed etc. I think you know what I mean.

The sluggard buried his hands in the dish, it wears him out to bring it to his mouth. Proverbs 26:15

That person is considered to be lazy because those things are not done. I’m the mind of the person that’s not being lazy because they work a job.

The sluggard is wiser in his own eyes than seven men who can answer sensibly. Proverbs 26:16

Have ever been told by other family members your lazy. Rather you have a job, or no job or what ever your case may be. It’s lazy if you don’t go an extra mile in everything that you do.

With that said the proverb above is ment to look at being Lazy in a different aspect and that is that we are made for so much more. More than we can ever imagine. More than the 9 to 5 job more than the “Normal” life you are living right now.

What’s normal? Personally I don’t think people should be called Normal anymore. That word is deadly to society and the energy that we all are putting out there. We should call all people extraordinary people to kill the Normal word. The energy of extraordinary will put a smile on peoples faces And better energy put into society then maybe just maybe we can change or alter the energy for people who just think they are normal. The new Normal is extraordinary normal.

Today use these Proverbs in your own life. I promise it changes the way you think. It’s a hard reality however if you can get a nudge from GOD to make you take a look at your thinking and ultimately your character and who you are why not. Remember your not Normal any more your extraordinary normal.

I love reading Proverbs every morning. I’ve been thinking about my work ethnic lately really hard. I’m sure some person can relate. I’ll be looking for work behind the counter where I work. I can’t find anything to do. So then some one else will come behind the counter and they have like 5 to 6 cartoons of cigarettes to stock and just busy all the time. I think to myself what the… why? I just stocked those.

Point being is it’s the whole mindset of how we think about work, and or how we perform at work or something that your doing personally of really in anything that you do. So for me this morning reading what I wrote for proverbs today makes me take a look at the thought process of how my work ethic is. That is what proverbs does for me every morning. It gives me a visual of how my day is going to be. What things I need to take personal action to. I don’t want to be considered lazy by GOD let alone my other co workers. So that paints the picture today that I need to go the extra mile. Double check the cigarettes to make sure they are stocked, pull down each one if that’s what it takes to make sure it’s right.

Clean more, organize. Most importantly there is no time for day dreaming. So… if these Proverbs can help you change your thinking or give you a different perspective of your thinking in this arena. Great! That Rocks.

Every morning it’s good to do just this. It retrains your thinking to be one minded with GOD because it changes your character to be like his. That is what Proverbs has done for me for the last Five Years.

Have a great day today.

Much love my friends always.♥️❤️♥️🙏❤️

Again I saw all the oppressions that are done under the sun. And behold, the tears of the oppressed, and they had no one to comfort them! On the side of their oppressors there was power, and there was no one to comfort them. Ecclesiastes 4:1

Being alone is never easy. Not for the rich nor for the poor. Not for the poor person in Spirit not the rich person in Spirit.

Do you think the person who is more Rich in Spirit is less lonely then the person who is poor in Spirit? Honestly after reading the above verse and if you continue to read the 4th chapter it talks more about it.

The point is that this is another reason of faith because truly it’s really considered all meaningless because of faith.

And I thought the dead who are already dead are more fortunate than the living who is still alive. Ecclesiastes 4:2

This to is meaningless however so true. How many times in your life have you felt so lonely you just wanted to die. Why would there be any reason to be on this planet with no one to spend it with.

I used to think this way. I used to be that person that wallowed if I wasn’t with someone for sure. It was one relationship after another.

Then I met some realistic people that taught me that it’s ok to be alone and really get to know who you are. Like YOU! In personal development and reading the Bible and of course my number one fan is GOD taught me just that. He taught me who I was made to be as well as to love myself for who I am. That was the beginning of this journey.

I think about the faith and how long this journey has been of so many things. For years I thought that yes it is better to be dead than alive.

As GOD was showing me more about gratitude and faith. To trust, to learn and understand the knowledge of the being the way the mind works when you are connected with GOD.

This is not easy. It gets easier, and what makes it easier is his love for you and I. Then there is the love that brings two people together.

It’s the state of mind that is connected to one source, one mind if you will. It’s a state of being that sends clear messages from both to the universe that comes back and connects the 2 minds together.

And though a man prevail against one who is always alone, two will withstand him-a threefold cord is not easily broken. Ecclesiastes 4:12

Now in this sense GOD is using this as what connects the 2 minds to one. In which is the universe. That’s the unity of the of the souls. It’s the silver cord that connects to heaven.

The silver cord is our souls. The Lumination in the spiritually rich man seems down they are still spiritually rich, and can lift the other up.

Back in 2015, I had this vision of this blog. I could not for the life of me figure out what the triple braided cord was. I master mind with a couple people and all I got from them was wow that’s deep Melissa. I didn’t get the answer.

There is still lots to write about this because it also goes into the thought process of the mind of flesh and the mind of spirit. That too can be the both the silver cord and the triple braided cord.

Again, if two lie together, they keep warm, but how can one keep warm alone. Ecclesiastes 4:11

This to is all meaningless it’s like chasing the wind. Because it’s all about faith.

I love you father in Heaven for all you do to me for me and with me. Thank you for everything to everybody that is in my life. As I continue to wait patiently with a smile and gratitude I will continue to have faith. Thank you.

My friends much Love. Have faith

Unequal weights and unequal measures are both alike an abomination to the Lord. Proverbs 20:10

Dang it! I started this blog not really knowing where it was going. The proverb above stuck out like a sore thumb. I didn’t know why.

I’m sitting outside saying GOD why can’t I stop smoking and honestly like I really don’t do this to often because just like with everyone else. It’s like he’s done everything for me to make things better for me and it’s me that’s not doing it. So I feel really bad when I talk to him about stopping certain things because there is no reason for me to do them. It’s strictly free will. I know the benefits and promises that are to come when I make that decision to just stop!

Dang! I know longer beg or pray for things like that. Now, as I’m talking to GOD outside. He says go write about it. I say ok come in and pull up that Proverb! 🤦‍♀️ to write about not smoking.

Here is what it means to me. Smh it’s so stupid! On my part of course. Knowing the GOD that I know and his plan for me.

Unequal weights meaning doing things I’m not suppose to do knowing that I’m not to do them and unequal measures sums up what I do. It’s me. It’s saying I’m going to drop and then not stopping. It does not make GOD happy with me at all. I can’t complain about anything because it’s my decisions that leave me where I’m at.

Dang! 🤦‍♀️ his reality makes me feel really bad. I even try arguing him with him at times. Like why do I have to stop smoking??? And if I’m so holy why don’t I live like the pope! Like protection wise. That sounded really bad. Then he says you are protected what are you talking about?! 🤦‍♀️ OK. Thank you father for all you do to me for me and with me! Please forgive me of all my sins.

Just thought I’d share.

Much love my friends!

What then shall we say? That the law is sin? By no means! Yet if we had the law, I would not had known sin. For I would not have known what it is to convet if the law had said, “Do not convet.” Romans 7:7

You shall not be jealous of one another. The gift given to someone else is not the gift that was given to you. Does the gift given to the person you are jealous of better than the gift that you were given? By no means! Yours is different not greater or less than not the other way around.

The beauty of the personal relationship that we have with GOD. Yeah fool! With GOD! Yeah wise man! With GOD!

I can’t express the meaning more of a fool or a wise man?!?!? Who is who?

Passion, wealth, strength, in what?

Wealth of houses, vineyards, words, negative power in which is thought of a wise man? What is it to you?

More importantly what is it to GOD? Who or what has the power? You may think you do in reality who is this land of Love? Wait power and love do they mix? Wait go a little bit deeper…..

Does the wise and the fool mix?

Then I said in my heart, “What happens to the fool will happen to me also. Why then have I been so very wise? And I said this on my heart that this to us all vanity. Ecclesiastes 2:15

Truly a hard reality! Vanity! Meaningless?

So I hated life, because what is done under the sun was grievous to me, for all is vanity and striving after the wind. Ecclesiastes 16:15

For “being” a “Wise” man or a “Fool”?

Life is like the wind which way is it truly going to go! Frustrating? All the complications of thought! Geez! What the what. Why? Why me?!?

For of the wise as of the fool there is no remembrance, seeing that in the days to come all will have been long forgotten. How the Wise dies just like the fool. Ecclesiastes 2:16

See the only thing we have in common is we all die! Why not eat and drink and just be happy! Reward each other with laughter and joy, encourage one another to do and be better. To love instead of not love.

Will then, will you be wise or a fool? What would you call it?

All judgement, what would you say to your fellow neighbor? You did wrong, you did this you did that, complaining about everything under the sun except, accepting the love of the wise and the fool. For who can judge to be either? Only the one who sits higher than all of us rather than the wise or the fool!

It’s all GOD. Much love my friends.

What about drinking?

For a prostitute is a deep; an adulteress is a narrow well. Proverbs 23:27

Is a prostitute any worse than an adulteress? Or the difference between the guttonier or the drunkard?

Hmm makes you wonder.

Who has woe? Who as sorrow? Who has strife? Who has complaining? Who has wounds without cause? Who has redness of the eyes? Proverbs 23:29

Is it the wise or the fool? Is it the drunkard or meat eater? Is it the prostitute or the adulteress?

Those who tarry long over wine; those who go to try mixed wine. Do not look at wine when it is red, when it sparkles in the cup and goes down smoothly. Proverbs 23:31

Shall I start drinking wine the drunkard would say to the man drinking wine thing they are wise. Truly both are fools.

In the end it bites like a serpent and stings like an adder. Your eyes will see strange things and your heart utter perverse things. Proverbs 23:32-33

Rather it be in the early day or in the latter days it soon will hit like a rod of lightening in some way shape or form.

I know that wine for me was Vodka. It at times hit me as a prostitute, adulteress a glottoniare a drunkard someone completely in non control of everything around me. It made me see things that were not true. It hit me like that rod of lightening that was so hard hitting I didn’t know what happened the night before. Did it happen suddenly? Absolutely not! It snuck up like a serpent on a rock and not me in the ass many many times. Without seeing or feeling anything.

You will be like one who lies down in the sea, like the one who lies on top of a mast. Proverbs 24:34

A mast of self destruction!

They struck me, “You will say,”but I was not hurt; they beat me, but I did but feel it. When shall I awake? I must have another drink. Proverbs 23:35

That dang wall jumped in front of me causing that black eye, my arm is broke because the sidewalk was uneven. The chair had a broken leg and I did not see it.

That “thing” was there in front of me I did not see it. That person struck me when I was drinking and did not feel it.

I have the shakes I just got get another drink. All in one. Rather it be a thing or person it’s all in one.

SELf DESTRUCTION, of the fool saying they are wise.

Much love my friends.
