Free Your Mind

Free Your Mind

Sharing is caring!

The bible states that Jesus taught, “Ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall set you free.” Dr. Ernest Holmes agreed in part of his definition of freedom that, “The understanding of Truth-Infinite Principle-is the emancipator.” To free your mind is to have your thoughts be illuminated by the Divine, which is Truth.

Truth as in Spirit, not as in the fact-based reality of this is true or false. So, for example, the sky is indeed blue, or it’s false that the sun is cold, instead, Truth as higher consciousness, or Spirit consciousness.

Aligning myself with Spirt is harmonizing with the thoughts that vibrate at a higher frequency.  You know them when you think them as they are thoughts that spark joy, thoughts that incite an energetic buzz, causing little bumps to cover your flesh.  I call them God bumps, and they are better known as gooseflesh.   The idea is to be so keenly aware of the thoughts passing through your mind that you can identify those of higher vibration to make a mental note to yourself to think them again.

Many people tend to think the same thoughts repeatedly that produce suffering for themselves, and they are so immersed in their beliefs that they are unable to lift themselves out of said suffering.  They can’t see the forest for the trees, as the saying goes.  The easy and quick remedy is to pick up a spiritual book, a sacred text, and begin reading it.  Your thoughts will flow with the energy of the holy text and away from those that created suffering.

The mind will wander as it does, and you will be required to wrestle it back to the sacred text.  It takes practice, as with anything. But, as you practice aligning your thoughts with the sacred text, you begin to feel lighter, and you give yourself a wonderful reprieve from the constant self-induced suffering you’ve endured.  The words of the sacred textbooks are words of Truth setting your mind free.  Free from the illusory thoughts that have bound you.  Suddenly you gain an insight for a higher idea for yourself and your life that you couldn’t see before because you were stuck in the default, vintage thought patterns of the past.  The answers aren’t there. 

Albert Einstein observed, “We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.” Similarly, we cannot free our minds with the same thinking we used to create suffering.  New thoughts are needed to liberate us from the thoughts that bound us, to lift us out of the muck and into the sparkling sunlight of the Spirit.

Do what you can to keep your mind stayed on Spirit, and you will see an evolution in your thinking.  Releasing vintage thoughts, you are propelled into the realm of infinite possibility and unlimited potentiality, which is the realm of pure Spirit.  Free your mind. You deserve it.

And so it is.
