Behind our day-to-day thoughts is a powerful tool, called our sub-conscious that is programmed by repeated input. In other words, what you think of, say and do on a daily conscious basis is what it takes in and builds itself around. So, if you consistently work on a positive and healthy thinking, your life will follow the enlightened path you have created.
Look hard at your life and find the times that your subconscious has controlled you both positively and negatively. See if you can identify what was the underlying thought that created the sub-conscious habit.
As protectors it is our responsibility to strive to be as powerful as we can become. Create and direct an inner vision of only that you wish to experience.
