Where is this magic potion or formula to get this real key to life moving?
First, like anything else your new thought habit needs a foundation. You need to give yourself a few days of thinking about nothing else but the task of creating a new habit of thought. Begin to pump your head full of positive, constructive, optimistic, compassionate, caring, and kind thoughts.
Second, observe yourself like a spider waits for a prey to drop on his web as far as what type of things pop into your mind.
Third, be sure that you understand clearly what negative thinking is. A negative thought is any thought of failure, disappointment, trouble, criticism, jealousy, condemnation of others or yourself, sickness or accident; any kind of limitation or pessimistic thinking, any thought that is not positive and constructive in character.
Fourth, you must grasp what the game plan calls for, which is to not entertain or dwell upon negative thoughts. Negative thoughts will bombard you all day long. As long as you don’t engross in them, get into a conversation about them or allow the negative information to inhabit your mind, you haven’t blown your mental diet.
Fifth, if you fall off the diet then start again afresh the next day. There must be no jumping on and off but take the game plan with serious thought. Remember it is for seven successful consecutive days.
Sixth, you can use the Law of Substitution by going to your favorite place or thinking of a positive affirmation, if the negative thought doesn’t linger for more that seven seconds. If it does, you have to start over.
Seventh, you are not supposed to tell anyone that you are doing this Seven Day Mental Diet until after you’ve completed the seven days then you are able to share your experience.
Finally, what is my personal experience this week. Sunday, I began, but I didn’t lay my foundation I just jumped on the train. In a couple of hours, I fell off as I thought some negative thoughts about myself longer than 7 seconds. Not knowing about the lag time which “The Seven Day Mental Diet” article mentions. I immediately started again and was doing fine until Monday night when I allowed my inadequacies on the computer to take over and my negative thoughts to reside. I used the Law of Substitution quoting “I am whole perfect, strong, powerful, loving, harmonious and happy” or “Praise the Lord, Praise the Lord”- all before seven seconds were up. This took me to the afternoon of Tuesday and allowed me to reread the article on “The Seven Day Mental Diet” from which I learned that if negative thoughts pop in my mind and I don’t dwell on them then I haven’t blown my Seven Day Mental Diet. This enlightenment made me thrilled to hear as I was doing better than I had thought. However, Tuesday before dinner I totally blew it when I became critical of a person and I dwelt on it . I choose to let my frustration take over. I gave myself a briefer for the rest of Tuesday and began “The Seven Day Mental Diet afresh on Wednesday. I feel more confident in the diet since I know more information about it and have been successful at doing it for two days now and getting ready for my third day. Hooray!
