I understand what I am about to say may sound crazy to you, but allow me to suggest the possibility that you have been totally brainwashed and you have unknowingly become your own worst enemy.
In fact, this is exactly what is happening to millions of people. And most likely, you are one of them.
What I am talking about is the SUBLIMINAL and SUBCONSCIOUS programming you are getting - programming that is imprinted on your subconscious without your knowledge.
I am not saying there is an organized conspiracy to program your mind. The people that are spreading these negative messages don't even know they are doing it!
The problem is as you are exposed to these mind viruses, you are likely to be infected. Just as exposure to raw sewage can cause you to be infected with germs, microbes and other nasty things, prolonged exposure to the media will infect your mind with many nasty viruses. Society spends billions of dollars to protect us from biological and computer viruses. Yet a mind virus can be the most dangerous of all.
One of the best things you can do to prevent mind viruses is stop following the news. Don't watch TV, don't listen to "talk" radio, don't read newspapers or magazines that have the news in them. Why? Because they all make their money by selling fear, lack, scarcity and limitation. Bad news is what sells.
Open the average newspaper and you will see that 90% or more of what you read is negative news. The percentage is about the same for radio and TV. Do you really believe it is important to find out how many houses burnt down, how many people were robbed or killed in your city, state or another country? Do you really need to be
reminded of the economic situation every day? Being exposed to all this negativity creates a negative view of the world and negative thought patterns in your mind.
When I tell people to skip the news, they invariably ask, "How will I know if there is a major world tragedy or natural disaster heading my way or terrorists striking near me?" Trust me. You will know about all the big stuff you need to know. Let's face it, the vast majority of your friends and neighbors follow the news so they can do the watching and reading for you. You still won't be able to escape it completely because most restaurants and shops now have the TV news on all day long. So if something major happens, you will know about it.
I haven't watched the news for the past ten years. I don't read the newspaper either because I don't want or need to know about all the bad stuff. My life is about creating good stuff. Eliminate the news media from your life for the next 30 days and see what I mean.
Today will bring you a new awareness, a lesson or a manifestation that you are making progress - IF YOU LOOK FOR IT! No matter how large or small, please record it in your Evidence Journal. It will only take a few moments and will AUTOMATICALLY put you in the Flow.
