The very most important thing we need dominion over is out THOUGHTS. This is what makes us “Nature’s greatest miracle”, we can Think. The right kinds of continuous good thoughts can program our subconscious which is our most direct connection to God AND the brain that makes over 95% of our decisions. So to have dominion over all things we must start with our own thinking.
From Lesson 17 we are told that Man has “dominion over all things”; this dominion is established through Mind. Thought is the activity which controls every principle beneath it. The highest principle by reason of its superior essence and qualities necessarily determines the circumstances, aspects, and relation of everything with which it comes in contact. The vibrations of mental forces are the finest and consequently the most powerful in existence. To those who perceive the nature and transcendence of mental force, all physical power sinks into insignificance. We are accustomed to look upon the Universe with a lens of five senses, and from these experiences our anthropomorphic conceptions originate, but true conceptions are only secured by spiritual insight. This insight requires a quickening of the vibrations of the Mind, and is only secured when the mind is continuously concentrated in a given direction. Continuous concentration means an even, unbroken flow of thought and is the result of patient, persistent, persevering and well-regulated system.
This is easier said than done. Life gives us continuous distractions and you need more than just good intentions. Part of training my brain is the need for quiet periods without distraction every day. Meditation, prayer, affirmations, and other thought activities to train the subconscious brain to form new and better habits. Habits that I want, like kindness, patience, faith, courage, etc.
I know that I am “Whole, Perfect, Strong, Powerful, Loving, Harmonious, and Happy” and I tell myself this multiple times every day. I hope my subconscious brain is catching on. I think it is.
