Week – 2, Gatekeeper – We are what we think



We all have heard of the “Gatekeeper” it’s obvious, it’s the person who guards the gate so unwanted people or things can’t get in.  And if the Gatekeeper takes a break, or lets someone in who should not be in, then there could be bad news and unwanted events.

Our mind consists of Conscious and Subconscious.  The conscious is what we can control, like raise our hand, or get up and walk.  Our conscious mind also thinks about stuff that is right in front of us that we may be doing right now.  Or even what we will do or what we already have done, vacation, good or bad times.

Our subconscious is on autopilot, where it just does w/o our thinking of it.  It pumps our heart, repairs our cells, we loose our balance and we gain control.  It does so many wonderful things we just don’t have to worry about any of that.

So the Gatekeeper….  The subconscious does what it is programmed to do, so if we teach it over and over how to walk, or how to talk (when we are an infant) we eventually will learn and never forget.  How about tying a shoe, i’m sure we can all do this with our eyes closed or have a conversation and not even think of the shoe lace going over, under and through, it is just automatic.

So the Gatekeeper… if the conscious mind lets in information that is not helpful, or worry or anger the subconscious may accept those conditions and our life will be less than it should be.  By keeping the gatekeeper at watch 100% of the time, any unwanted information will be denied access, and continuing to deny wrong information, our subconscious will be in harmony and all is good.

There is an old saying, “We are what we eat”  so this would make sense “we are what we think about.”  What are you thinking about today?
