Twelve Mental Exercises from Science Of Christian Thought


SOCT Paper 188

Twelve Mental Exercises from
Science Of Christian Thought

*Science Of Christian thought offers CTS [Christian Thinking Skills]

Here are twelve thought or ‘mental’ exercises put together by Sir Eric William King (CEO and founder of SOCT). These techniques have proven their worthiness to SOCT students and we now share them with you all that you may indulge in these techniques of “self” mastery. ~ Elizabeth Strong
____________________________________________________________________

Science Of Christian Thought Practice One: The next time you feel that your emotions are turning towards a bad feeling, something upsetting, then ask yourself: “What am I thinking?” Learn that all of your emotions are simply following thoughts. Choose a better thought or stay unhappy. This may sound simple in principle but it is not very easy. You must begin to train your mind to do this. Recognize your thoughts. ~

Science Of Christian Thought Practice Two: The next time you find your mind wandering (or daydreaming) you may find that you land on an old bitter memory or a sad time in your life. The mind can look down these old thought tunnels and get sucked in. You must become conscious of this and stop the thoughts from leading you down into depression. Change the Mind Channel. ~

Science Of Christian Thought Practice Three: When talking to others you can sometimes determine how conscious they are of themselves by their tone of voice. When we are upset and riding an angry thought wave our voices become enraptured with the emotion and we become unconscious of others around us and even of our own selves. Be careful to listen to your own tone (and volume) when talking so you do not get sucked into your own emotions. ~

Science Of Christian Thought Practice Four: If someone is talking to you at work or wherever and you begin to feel upset about what they are telling - you can tell them that you wish not to talk about such issues. You must set boundaries. If you are in a situation where you cannot verbally confront the person or persons you can learn to think about something completely different while they are blabbering. You can think about some interesting or a fun thing you like to do and plan a time (whenever they are done blabbering) that you can do the fun thing. Some like to look forward as to what they might enjoy doing after work. This can help you get through work. ~

Science Of Christian Thought Practice Five: Learn to say decrees. SOCT offers Violet Flame decrees. Saying these decrees in the morning and at times throughout the day empowers you and clears the mind of impurities. It is important to pray, meditate, study and decree as often as you can and enjoy it. ~

Science Of Christian Thought Practice Six: Make a short list of three things that you like to do. It could be watching a favorite TV show, walking the dog, eating a meal at a certain time, reading, etc. If you cannot think of any specific three things than list three things that you would like to do on a daily basses. Keep your room or house clean every day, spend time doing artwork or playing a music instrument, writing, etc. Take time out every day for yourself. ~

Science Of Christian Thought Practice Seven: Then learn to choose who you spend your time with. Is there a person who contacts you that you tag along with only because you feel alone? If there is a person that you tag along with whom you really disagree with and don’t particularly like their language and lifestyle then why hang around such a person? Is there a person you hang around with who calls you only when they need something like a ride to the store? You must learn to say NO to these people. “Sorry, I am busy today. Can’t help you today.”  Whenever you are invited into a situation ask yourself; “Will I be better for it? Will this upset me and be a waste of my time? Learn to ask yourself: “Do I really want or need to do such a thing?” Some people like to spend more time alone and or with a pet. Find your social levels and hold your ground. ~

Science Of Christian Thought Practice Eight: Spend more time finding out what really makes YOU happy. Spend time every day before the day ends sitting upright in a comfortable chair in a private place. Close your eyes and say a Violet Flame decree. Also, talk to God and learn to thank more than ask. Notice all that you have been so freely given; food, a roof over your head, warmth, a job etc. ~

Science Of Christian Thought Practice Nine: People over generalize in their interpretation of how things happen. One might say; “If I do that I always fail”. Or, “Every time I try that I fail thus I will always fail.” This is also a trap. Be careful when analyzing situations. Notice also how you use the word “always”. By noticing how you construct your thoughts through sentences you will begin to see that you may have painted yourself into many corners and thus you may feel trapped. Practice this awareness and change your perspective, walk into a better reality. ~

Science Of Christian Thought Practice Ten: Another subject that we will look at is the subject of jumping to conclusions. We all fall into this problem more often than you might think. When we jump to conclusions we assume we totally understand what somebody else is thinking. Some store clerk girl might say: “Every guy that comes in here is a pervert.” Or some guy might say; “Every girl that says ‘no’ really means ‘yes’.” Both of these conclusions are obviously wrong. We sometimes have the habit of projecting one or more of our experiences upon others. Just because we have witnessed a bad situation more than once does not mean that we have the right to walk into a room [situation] and begin to project that past experience upon everybody else in the room. ~

Science Of Christian Thought Practice Eleven: That fact of the matter is you cannot make everybody like you. Each of us has our own interests, likes and dislikes. We live in a world of diversity. A mature human can respect (not laugh at) another person’s interests even though he or she may not share that interest - there is still a respect. You will know the person by their behavior. ~

Science Of Christian Thought Practice Twelve: Learning to laugh at yourself and not take things so seriously is extremely healthy. You must realize that everybody suffers inside to one degree or another. You can learn to set the mood in your conversations. This is not a manipulation but a natural rhythmic balance. Learn when to laugh at yourself when somebody points something out about you to create a charge. ~

May you find Peace Profound ~

  1. Some people are in bad health and are not able to get outside. In this case they can watch great documentaries, surround themselves with nice house plants and open window sunlight. They may even get an indoor water fountain. In any case, there is no excuse to ignore the beauty of God’s creation. Holding a simple feather or interesting rock can connect one with a deeper respect of nature. Some SOCT students do rituals such as the LBRP using symbols of nature in ritual. The point is we should develop a deeper relationship with our planet. ~E.W.King

  2. We also understand the laws of cause and effect. We say that every cause has an effect and every effect has a cause. These are laws that you can learn to use and we do this by learning to find the possible rhythm. Rhythm is the equilibrium that we long for in all that we do. SOCT teaches that this practice is called “Mind of Christ Action” [Mocha]. We offer in our SOCT papers much information for you to get started in understanding all of these beautiful laws. ~

    We want to stay away from extremism in all of its forms. We also want to try and stay away from all the “isms” which can hold a person back from very important Truths. SOCT is not an “ism” nor is it a “cult”. Science Of Christian Thought is a spiritual movement of true Christianity. ~

    So we will begin our SOCT paper’s regarding the topic of “fear” with this first short paper. We hope that you will continue to study with us here at SOCT and take from it all what works for you. May you find and keep Peace Profound. ~
