The little old lady who lives in my head!!

I attended a seminar by Bob Samara, personal coach, back in 2008 and he talked about the "little old lady who lives in your head." The old hag doesn't want things to change and every time you think you have conquered defeat she pops up again. Nah nah nah nah nah!! "You are never going to amount to anything." "You will never change." "You will never accomplish your goals." "You will never pass that test." Yadda yadda yadda! Bob says it's all about the images you hold in your subconscious mind. If the image in your subconscious is not in alignment with your reality, your subconscious wins. You will create what you think about.

Doesn't the Word of God tell us the same thing. "When you pray, pray believing..." "As a man thinketh in his heart so is he..." "I can do all things through Christ who strengthen me." Joel O'steen talks about "the surpassing greatness of God's favor."

I am simply scratching the surface of the subconscious mind and God's will for our lives but it is certainly worth exploring. I can't tell you how many times that old lady has caused me trouble. She is much smaller today than she used to be but she isn't dead. Maybe in the next few months I can let her "rest in peace." Perhaps I'll invite Bob Samara to make a few comments. It can't hurt and may help some of the folks who read my blog. I hope so!
