Your mind is just like your physical body. It needs to be fed. If you eat foods which are unhealthy for your body, this will result in an unhealthy body with a weak immune system. You are what you eat. Consume bad, unhealthy foods and your body will reflect this but if you eat good healthy foods, this will also show in your body. Your body will be healthier and you will feel better overall. Afterall, everything is energy, even your food.
Although everyone knows by default that food is a basic need for human survival, and as such, people need to eat in order to survive. Not everyone is aware that the human mind also needs to be fed good “foods” just as the body. In fact, it’s impossible not to feed the mind. The mind needs to be fed at the same rate that the body needs to be fed, if not more.
Most people are unconsciously and ignorantly feeding their minds unhealthy and poisonous foods. And when an individual mind consumes a large quantity of unhealthy foods, it destroys there mind. It causes some much pain in the person’s life without the person being aware of the source of his or her troubles. So the first question you should really ask then is, “how have I been feeding my mind?“
How You Have Been Feeding Your Mind
A person who dislikes you might attack you physically but a person who hates or want to enslave you will attack your mind. This is because the physical body of a person is actually not the real person. The real person is invisible. The real person is his or her mind and this mind performs any action it wants with the help of the body. The body is simply an outward expression of the mind.
So your mind is the real you. The mind is fed two basic things, images and sounds. Images can come in the form of what you see in your immediate environment, on the internet, on the TV, in the magazines, newspapers, Smartphones and e.t.c.
The sound you feed your mind can come from the type of music you listen to, what you heard on the radio, a lecture you listen to, the news you listened to on your radio, the gossips you heard at work or from your neighbours, the books you are reading and e.t.c.
Now you know that your mind consumes two main things – images and sounds. The question in this section of this article is; what have you been feeding your mind? The answer is that you have been feeding your mind images and sounds from those videos you watched on YouTube and Facebook. You have been feeding your mind the images from Instagram. You have been feeding your mind negative news from the radio. You have consistently fed your mind Cancer images, through those Cancer Charity adverts you’ve been watching during commercial breaks on TV.
Majority of all these images and sounds which you’ve been feeding your mind were never filtered by you. And you know what, half of the time you are actually afraid of those images and sounds you are unconsciously and ignorantly feeding your mind; as in the case of a woman watching a breast cancer advert. What did Job say about fear?
What I feared has come upon me;
what I dreaded has happened to me.
– Job 3:25 NIV
It is no secret that the more cancer diseases are advertised, the higher the number of people diagnosed with them. It is almost like there is a strong correlation between an increase in cancer adverts and an increase in the number of people diagnosed with cancer.
Your Mind(s) And What You’ve Been Feeding It
Your mind is a trinity. You have the superconscious mind, the subconscious mind and the conscious mind. I will briefly cover the subconscious and conscious mind.
The Subconscious Mind
Your subconscious mind controls at least 95% of your actions. As you are reading this article, your subconscious mind is great at work doing some extraordinary things in your organs and tissues. You are not consciously regulating your blood or extracting nutrients from the foods you’ve consumed and then distributing the nutrients around your body. Your subconscious mind does all these.
Your subconscious mind is highly intelligent but even with it high intelligence, it still requires your conscious mind to decide what’s good or bad in the external (environment). It still requires the conscious mind to decide what’s true or false.
The Conscious Mind
Your conscious mind is the gatekeeper to your subconscious mind. It decides what’s good or bad and what’s true or false by using the sensory organs. Although the conscious mind is just the gatekeeper to the subconscious mind, it still has great power over your reality. For whatever the conscious mind believes as true, the subconscious mind will also accept and manifest. The subconscious mind never disagrees with the decision of the conscious mind.
The danger for everyone is the fact that the subconscious mind believes and accepts everything that gets past the conscious mind as true. This is why subliminal messages and adverts are so effective.
A lot of the time people watch movies, adverts or listen to a radio message without knowing there are several subliminal messages embedded into those things. If you go on Instagram for example and observe carefully, you will notice in every 10 image feeds from accounts in the U.S., 2 or 3 of the images contain subliminal messages. It’s so rampant and blatant now.
When you observe these subliminal images or read their words without objecting to them, they go straight to your subconscious mind where the damage will be done to you. Because you did not know what you are observing with your eyes, neither do you have a full understanding of what you’re reading, so you didn’t resist or reject them. And what you do not reject, you automatically accept. And since your conscious mind did not resist or reject the information, the subconscious mind accept them as true and good.
Have you noticed how common self-deprecation has become lately on social media platforms? Go to Tumblr, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram and observe the messages. You will soon notice a common trend of impressing others with self-deprecation of oneself. Words like “Am so useless I did this and that” or “Am so hopeless, I did this stupid thing” are everywhere on social media platforms.
The insidious thing with this self-deprecation messages is that you read them as though you were referring to yourself. This is how the damage is done. You have trained your mind to instinctively read whatever phrase or sentence you are capable of reading and whenever you come across a self-deprecation message, you immediately and instinctively read them before you even decide if it’s OK to read them or not.
When you read these self-deprecation messages, your subconscious mind is listening. It never stops listening. This is why they say “be careful of what you say about yourself because you’re listening”.
Since your subconscious mind is constantly listening to whatever you say about yourself and your environment, when you ignorantly read a self-deprecation message without objecting to the content of that message, your subconscious mind accepts it as true and goes straight to work about manifesting it in your life.
So you might read a self-deprecation message that says something like, “Am so bad, I can’t do anything right”, immediately you read this statement without objecting to it or rejecting it totally, your subconscious mind will say “your wish is my command”. Give it 6 months or 1 year, you will suddenly notice, that for some reason you just can’t do anything right. This will continue until you learn your lesson.
Filter What You Feed Your Mind
If you’ve read to this point, the logical thing you should want to do is filter what you feed your mind and you should really put a lot of effort into filtering the images and sounds you consume on a daily bases. It is almost impossible for anyone to completely filter all the images and sounds they consume on a daily basis. In your attempt to filter what you feed your mind, do the following below. The advice below is the minimum you should do in your attempt to filter what you feed your mind.
Your TV is not your enemy but the programmes you watch on your TV are incredibly bad for your mind’s health. Apart from the fact that the current TV programmes are literally designed to program the minds of people, half of the films and dramas on TV now are filled with occultic symbolism and subliminal messages. On top of this, there is also the daily bad news.
My advice is that you get rid of your TV altogether. But if it’s too hard for you to get rid of your TV because you want to watch things like an animal documentary or DIY shows, then keep the TV, but never watch the news or the free films in their programmes. Only watch things like history, animal documentary, art and craft, DIY shows and personal development programmes. I personally don’t have a TV at the moment. I only watch sports and I watch them online.
Half of the time, the words coming out of your radio are pure fear-mongering and bad news. I can understand you want to listen to the radio because of the music but do you really know and understand the lyrics to those songs being played on the radio? Most songs with sadistic lyrics have a great beat and sound. If you heard a song on a radio which you like, do you yourself a favour, get the song lyrics before you start singing to it. Make sure you understand every line of the lyrics.
My advice for you in regards to radios is that you should use them primarily to discover new songs. But before you sing along to any new, exciting, sweet or great song, check the lyrics first. Don’t destroy yourself by singing to what you do not fully understand its meaning.
Do not use your radio to listen to news, debates and a negative talk shows. These types of shows are unhealthy for your mind.
Social media is now the main platform of our generation. People can go weeks, months or even years without listening to a radio or watching TV, but they can’t help but visit one form of social media or the other. Social media is where everyone is. Your friends and enemies are equally represented on social media platforms. It has now become the best platform for people to spread their vile, hatred and misinformation.
I can’t advise you to stay away from all social media platforms because that’s not to your benefit. My advice to you is that, whenever you visit any social media platform, have a questioning mind. Be in the mind frame of questioning everything you see on any social media platform. The mere fact that you question everything you see on the Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest and Tumblr of this world, will act as a filter. You questioning it means the information won’t just travel straight to your subconscious mind.
It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it.
Believe it or not, you have enemies. Some of them are physical, while some of them are spiritual or invisible. I have noticed that those waging war against the common sanity of mankind have chosen to use subtle tactics. People are being encouraged to see themselves as useless, hopeless and spineless. It doesn’t stop there, the ultimate aim of these people is to brainwash the masses to the point of mental slavery. And how are they doing this? By feeding your mind vile.
You are encouraged to say negative things about yourself. You are feed images of death, destruction, brutality, violence and chaos. After you consume these types of images for a period of time, your life will soon start exhibiting one of those things which you have ignorantly feed your mind.
The concoction of self-deprecation and subliminal images along with images of death, destruction, brutality, violence, disobedience and chaos is the perfect recipe to brainwash people into submission. If you let this happen to you, your life will be painful and miserable.
So, my advice to you is that whenever you read any statement which you can tell that it is self-depreciating or you observe an image or an infomercial which you know will be harmful to your mind, make this statement immediately – “I reject this statement or image and every power that comes with it”. Sometimes when you read these types of destruction statements or observe one of these troubling images, you can help but think about them for hours or days afterwards. When this happens, follow the instructions in our Statement For Banishing Negative Thoughts article.
