Week 14 ~Law of Substitution

Law of Substitution is one of the mental laws I’ve learn
to put into action quite a bit, especially lately. This is
the thought process where we rid ourselves of any
negative thoughts by substituting another positive
one in its place.

Because we are capable of holding only one thought at
a time, our goal is to dismiss any thoughts of lack and
limitation whenever they creep into our subconscious
mind. It’s crucial that they are replaced immediately
by a more positive thought.

It’s true we won’t be able to control every circumstance
of our life, but it is in our power to control the way we
choose to respond to those circumstances.

The Law of Substitution sounds as if it should be an easy thing to do. However,
since I’ve been practicing it, I have found it can be a  rather challenging task.

For example, each year the members of my church participate in a biblical expression
known as the “Daniel Fast” It simply means that for 21 straight days we are to be cautious
of what goes into our bodies. We are to refrain from or avoid all animal products including
meats, certain food that contain sugar, soda, breads and dairy. We are to substitute
healthier foods as fruits, vegetables, water and all natural juices.

As you can probably imagine, the first few days are the hardest to accomplish. It takes
will power, persistence, determination and the law of substitution.

Whenever those thoughts and feelings of sugar surface, like brownies, candy, sweet tea
aroused, I had to immediately substitute in my mind thoughts of healthy foods like a
delicious juicy plum, sweet crunchy baby carrots, icy cold water with crushed ice! if
I wanted to achieve my goal.

My level of control depends upon how effectively I use the Law of Substitution.
Is this a law you have put into practice?

Wishing you a new year and a new you!
