SERMON SERIES: Open Your Mind and Be Healed
TEXT: Open Your Mind and Be Healed by Johnnie Colemon [https://amzn.to/368VPe5]
Your Divine Make Up
Romans 12:2 “Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your minds, so that you may discern what is the will of God—what is good and acceptable and perfect.”
You are Spirit – Soul – Body. Your Soul has three parts:
Superconscious part or Christ mind
Conscious part or Intellect
Subconscious part or Creative mind
EXCERPT: From Open Your Mind and Be Healed
“The regeneration is accomplished through the use of affirmations and denials as a means to cleanse the entire consciousness. Then the Holy Spirit has a clear path to express through. This process is an inner toil, and you can do your mental work in any kind of physical environment. However, your inner self must be still, relaxed and calm.” (Page 55)
KEY POINT: My main point is to reinforce that if you want to Open Your Mind to a different experience, you must speak Truth to the thoughts and feelings you have empowered with your attention and words.
REALITY VS. EXISTENCE:
Reality Includes: Realm of pure potential – God ideas | The heavens | Access through conscious contact with God – prayer, meditation the Silence and just Being
Existence Includes: Realm of expression | The earth | Accessible through the five senses | The byproduct of our thinking | The collective consciousness.
EXCERPT: Open Your Mind and Be Healed
By “turn within” we mean centering your thoughts on the One Power, the One Presence, the omnipotent, omnipresent , and omniscient God. With your thoughts centered on God, you can only demonstrate in your life the nature of God the Absolute Good. Often, I do not name maladies, such as cancer, arthritis, etc., because I do not want these names to become part of my consciousness. Instead, I create a word like “bonkus of the conkus.” Bonkus is a mixture of bunkum and bogus! (Page 56)
EXCERPT: From “The Hill of Change” by National Poet Laureate Amanda Gorman
“The new dawn blooms as we free it. For there is always light, if only we are brave enough to see it – if only we are brave enough to be it.”
