The Stickperson or The Growth Of Your Mind Simply Explained
The greatest discovery of my generation is that a human being can alter his life by altering his attitudes.
– William James
If we want to bring order and understanding to our mind, we must have an image of the spirit with which to work.
The mind is an invisible part of our personality, and because of its invisible and imperceptible nature, we must build an image with our imagination.
This is where the genius of Dr. Thurman Fleet created the image of the stickperson.
You can imagine that the simplicity of this illustration is only a childish impression of the human being.
This is possible – but it is also a revelation tool: unveiling a world of power, opportunity and promise.
Imagine that within you, you have a power that is far superior and far more powerful than any other condition or circumstance around you.
THE THOUGHTS I CHOOSE WILL DETERMINE THE RESULTS THAT I MANIFEST IN MY LIFE
Referring to the illustration opposite, consider the head as the spirit. A horizontal line cuts the circle that represents the spirit in two parts; the upper part being the conscious mind and the lower part being the subconscious mind.
The Conscious Mind
Is the part that thinks and reasons. This is where free will resides. It is the part of the mind that decides the changes that determines the kind of life you want to experience.
All pain, pleasure and limitation is either created in the conscious mind or accepted without reserve from an outside source. When you accept these thoughts, they are then transferred and impregnated into the subconscious.
You become what you think…
The Subconcious Mind
Ideas that are fixed and rooted in our subconscious are called conditioning or paradigms.
The subconscious operates in every cell of our body. Every thought accepted by the Conscious MUST be accepted by the Subconscious – he has no faculty to reject.
The subconscious is also called the emotional mind.
This part works in a very orderly way. We talk about it by saying “BY LAW”. The expression of the subconscious is manifested through our actions and our feelings. All thought impregnated into the subconscious becomes a fixed part of our personality. These fixed ideas or habits are the conditioned mind or the paradigms. The Subconscious is often called the spiritual side of our personality or the Universal Spirit. It has no limit except that imposed by the individual.
Develop power and control through the management of your thoughts by imbuing it with powerful motivated actions, encouraging success through growing thoughts that must and will produce the desired results.
Indeed, whatever we desire with determination and concentration, by putting our intentions, we manage to create it.
