9. Get to Know the Sun in Your Body

Blocking the internal sun is the cause of every ill to the human race: physical, mental, and environmental.

The Solar Plexus

A plexus is an intricate network of nerves. The one behind your stomach is called “solar” because of the many nerves that radiate out from it. And, like the sun, this Solar Plexus is a central distribution point from which the energy of your body is constantly generating. This energy is real, and like the sun in the sky, it is incredibly powerful and crucial to your life.

The energy that radiates from your Solar Plexus is thrown off in the atmosphere that envelopes your body. When this radiation is strong, a person seems “magnetic.” Others are attracted to them, it feels good to be around them. Their presence alone will often soothe troubled minds.

The Cause of Every Ill

When the Solar Plexus radiation becomes blocked for any reason — such as worry, guilt, and fear — the life energy from the Divine Force is diminished or blocked. This is the cause of every ill to the human race: physical, mental, and environmental.

Physical, because your internal sun is no longer generating enough energy to vitalize the body. Mental, because because your two minds rely on the Sympathetic Nervous System to function smoothly. Environmental because the connection of your subconscious mind with the Sacred Power of the Universal Mind mind is interrupted.

Life is expressive and it is our privilege to express ourselves harmoniously and constructively. Sorry, misery, unhappiness, disease, and poverty are effects. You are the only one who can identify and eliminate their causes. Rise above and beyond all limitations of any kind by paying careful attention to what you are thinking. What is going in and and what is coming out of your mind?  Will yourself to consciously replace negative thoughts that oppress you with ideas that bring freedom and harmony.

The Second Meditation

Sit still, close your eyes, and relax your entire body. Is your solar plexus relaxed or does it feel “nervous?” Relax your conscious mind by inhibiting thought and lingering in the present moment. You will still get messages from your senses and make conclusions about them, because that is part of your automatic survival mechanism. You are safe in this moment. Just relax into the present and rest your mind. Next, visualize your solar plexus as a bright sun that radiates healing warmth and comfort.

When you notice that your mind has wandered, make a mental sweep of your body, relaxing any tense areas that have developed. End the meditation by clearing your mind of daydreams, plans, reasoning. Simply rest in the silence.

8. Your Nervous Systems

Your subconscious mind is part of the whole Divine Mind like a drop of water is part of the ocean.

Eliminate the tendency to complain about conditions in the past or what they are right now. Make them what you want them to be by sending positive thoughts through your two nervous systems.

Your conscious mind works because of a system of nerves called the Central Nervous System. The brain is the command center of your conscious mind. This is where you examine all the stimuli coming in through the five senses and consider how they affect you and what, if anything, you should do about them. This is where you exercise your powers of reasoning and will.

You also have a Sympathetic Nervous System controlled by your subconscious mind. Its command center is a mass of nerves located behind the stomach. It is called the Solar Plexus. One of its jobs is to control all the vital functions of your body and keep everything running smoothly.

The two nervous systems are connected by the Vargus nerve, which leads from the base of your brain (the Central Nervous System), through the chest area, with branches to the heart and lungs and down to the diaphragm — a muscle that plays a major role in breathing. This is where the Central Nervous System nerves loose their outer coating and become the fine radiating nerves of the Solar Plexus, between the diaphragm and stomach.

After the brain decides a thought is true, it is sent to the subconscious system for further action. Once this thought energy leaves the brain enroute to the Solar Plexus, it is no longer subject to reason. The subconscious mind does not argue or decide anything. It only takes instructions and acts. It accepts the conclusions of the conscious mind as final.

The system is designed for your benefit and protection. Imagine how chaotic life would be if you had to consciously manage all the functions of your body that take place behind the scenes. You would have to be very intelligent to understand exactly how everything works. Instead you are endowed with a portion of the Universal Intelligence that is dedicated to maintaining the conditions necessary to carrying on Life within you. Your Sympathetic Nervous System is your connection with that Intelligent Life that is omnipresent and omniscient — it is everywhere and all knowing.

It takes practice to consistently think thoughts that crystalize into favorable actions, events, and conditions. The good thing is, it doesn’t cost you anything except time. Since you are spending time anyway, might as well spend it wisely. Being aware of exactly what you are funneling to your subconscious mind is an important step.

The Second Meditation

Relax your body as you learned to do in the first meditation. Your mission now is to inhibit thoughts that pop into your mind. Stray thoughts will come in constantly. The moment you let your guard down, you will drift into some irresistible mental scenario. As soon as you realize it, will yourself back to focusing on the present. Consider the various body parts to see if your thoughts are causing you to tense up. Pay particular attention to the area of your Solar Plexus.

Slowing down your thinking this way will help strengthen that inner guard that is in charge of the quality of thoughts you want to entertain. It is a starting point to mastering encroaching worries and thoughts of defeat.

7. How to Renew Your Mind Today

Raise your vibration with harmonious music, art, beauty, inspiration, empathy, and kindness.

You have been presented with a free gift to use throughout your life. It is the ability to direct your thoughts. Use the gift today to control your circumstances. Remember, no matter if you are thinking intentionally or not, your thoughts are still creating your reality.

Change your life by changing your thoughts

If you want to improve your circumstances, it is necessary to first change your thinking. Intentional thinking is like eating food that makes you healthy. You can eat what builds you up, or you can eat what makes you fat and sick. Either way, you are in charge. It’s the same with what you decide to feed into your mind.

Your life is a reflection of your predominant mental attitude. If your predominant mental activity has been negative, you can make the choice to switch channels to an uplifting program. This may seem as hard as rolling a boulder uphill. It will be easier if you always look for the best and highest things for your mind to tune in on.

Raise your vibration with harmonious music, art, beauty, inspiration, goodness, kindness, magnificence on a regular basis. Stop eating the bad mental stuff. You are what you eat. And you are what you think.

You may not be able to control your thoughts most of the time. You may not have power over most things coming at you. But you can start to change that right now by using your free will to focus on whatever uplifts you and those around you. Actively make the choice to look for those things and attune yourself with them.

The Second Meditation

The resting meditations teach you to observe the quality of thoughts you entertain and how they affect your body. The practice of intentionally sitting still and resting the body and mind is the first step to renewing your mind. You must practice it before moving ahead with other Master Key meditations.
