Subject: “Free Your Mind.”
Received by Chris.
Teacher Ophelius: “The message for today is about how to free your mind and to train it so it can become an instrument of the Father’s will. Like a wise farmer who prepares his fields for a good harvest, you also can bear good fruit through the preparation of your mind for spiritual leading by changing how you live, think, and feel, and to become aware of what kind of thoughts come into your mind that influence the way you perceive the world, and how you feel about those in your life circles.
“We cannot emphasize enough how important it is to remove unnecessary and unhealthy media input from entering your mind, for this is first on the list of things that has the most influence on your thinking, your opinions, and how you perceive the world around you. You have a saying on your world used mostly by computer programmers that states, ‘garbage in, garbage out,’ meaning, if poor and careless thought goes into the lines of code when writing a program, then poor quality will result in the output of that program. The same is true for you when you allow poor and unhealthy input from entering your mind through the eyes and ears that will undoubtedly manifest itself through your thoughts, your words, and your actions.
“The second most influential source of unhealthy input comes from relationships: friends, family, acquaintances, and co-workers that are mostly negative and are themselves heavily influenced by unhealthy programming. In this case, those relationships should be managed consciously to minimize contact, or to hold your ground, so to speak, and prevent them from disrupting your harmony. Do not participate or sympathize in the negative behavior of others.
“The third source of mind disruption is unhealthy vices, for these are the things that consume the mind and become ‘needs’ that can shut out all healthy and spiritual influences. The Father’s Will can never take root in a mind that is addicted and feeding the constant need for self-gratification. Take back control of your mind and do not allow these needs to control you.
“It’s all about ‘vibration’ my friends, and when you become host to things of low vibration (negative thoughts and emotions), then you also become sympathetic to those influences. The Father’s Will is of high vibration and so if you wish to be led by spirit, you must condition your mind with things of high vibration – love, joy, truth, beauty, and goodness. These are the things that till the soil of the mind and fertilize it for good fruit. By embracing these virtues, you give off a light in the world that has a positive influence that can be felt by others who may have a lower vibration and thus can elevate the condition of their minds by sympathetic contact with you.
“This is what it means to ‘serve’ others and to become an instrument of the Father’s Will – to take care of the self by freeing the mind for spiritual input, then can you be affective in the world and help others free their minds. This is the way of progress and growth through learning and teaching and this is the way of ascension. Prepare yourself now for higher thought, my friends, free your mind and allow spirit to lead you into all joy by becoming a channel for the Divine Will.
“Peace to all,
“The Circle of Seven.”
