Confidence is key here. We must solidify our mindset by grounding our authority in the complete knowing that we are in fact the master of our mind and we are a co-creator of every experience we wish to bring forth. Charles Fillmore states that the spiritual substance from which comes all visible wealth is never depleted. It is right with us all the time and responds to our faith in it and our demands on it. This section will begin to bring all our studies together.
Imprinting a New Mindset
With confidence in ourselves, and an understanding of how the mind works we can now begin to imprint our subconscious with a new program. We are no longer held to the illusion that we must believe, do, be hurt by what others feel or think about us. Galileo Galilei said that “in questions of science, the authority of a thousand is not worth the humble reasoning of a single individual.” Ernest Holmes makes a similar point by reminding us that “I am guided by the same intelligence and inspired by the same imagination which scatters the moon beams across the waves and holds the forces of nature in its grasp.” The imprinting is a type-specific method of repeated, positive affirmation that serves to solidify the new mindset and to protect from rebounding into old patterns of thinking.
Focus Applied Thought (FAT) Techniques for different Types
The practice of prayer is often misunderstood to be something religious rather than spiritual and few people are taught to do it effectively. Our personality type will predict how we best engage with this kind of thinking, which is fundamental in establishing and nurturing a meaningful relationship with the Source of our unique version of mind. We believe this is one of the most important sessions in the program and has the potential to ignite a significant shift in those who practice. Depending on your personality type, we study and practice the Ignatian, Augustinian, Fransiscan and Thomistic styles of focused, applied thought.
In this final workshop, learn to practice focused, applied thought to set the Flagship mindset as your default programming so you can sail smoothly through life.
