6/5 Unhealthy Ways Emotions can Block Total Wholeness

October 20, 2012
participate

We saw in our last posts that emotions are common to all humans. We emphasised that our emotions come from our thinking patterns – and can be changed if we change our thinking.  That’s why ‘re-newing the mind’ is so important. Without emotions, we would just be zombies or robots.  It is our emotions that make us truly human.

A machine (like a computer) can compare and contrast much quicker (and usually more accurately) than we can.  That doesn’t make it more human, but less.  In the science fiction series “Star Trek” human beings are always trying to get Spock to become emotional.  You see, he is not human, but Vulcan.

6/4 Where do we get our Emotions for Total Wholeness?

October 12, 2012

If we see the overall picture, Emotions are observable behaviours because of the chemical changes in our body. That is why chemicals (drugs) can be used to ‘alter our moods’. Using a definition from Selwyn Hughes in his Every Day with Jesus, May, 1998, emotions can be defined as:

“The state of mind …… that produces a feeling …..  which then shows itself in a physical change within the body.”

These chemical changes are influenced largely by how we ‘see’ the world around us.  That is, how we interpret what we see, smell, touch, hear and taste.  The brain is the organ that interprets reality and ties the five senses to thought and emotion.

6/2 Intro to Emotions and Total Wholeness

October 4, 2012

Welcome back to the Boardroom of your Personality!

Your personality – or what we have called ‘The Boardroom’ – is constantly feeling emotions, thinking about things, sorting out different views and making decisions.  Most of this activity is ‘under cover’; we need to look for the patterns that are happening to understand our own Boardroom.

Remember the other influences in the Boardroom?  For most people, the Conscience has a large say in any decisions.  This voice uses the ‘should, ought, must’ and etc.  It often condemned us into action.

5/19 Summary for the Conscience and Total Wholeness

September 23, 2012

We began this Blog by presenting a series on the 9 parts of our personality.   We have been calling these 9 parts ‘The Boardroom’ as all these parts meet to discuss and debate, argue and conquer as we make decisions about our world.  Only when all of our ‘parts‘ understand, are submitted to our Creator and learn to work in unity, harmony and peace will be begin to see what Total Wholeness looks like.

So we launched into defining the Conscience.

5/17 Your Conscience’s Measuring Sticks and Total Wholeness

September 6, 2012

In our last post, we began the discussion on the importance of surrendering our Conscience to our Creator, rather than blindling floowing the beliefs of our childhood.  Each part of our personality must learn this vital lesson; we weren’t meant to do this life journey alone!

 A.  IT COMES BACK TO THOSE MEASURING STICKS!

Remember our previous discussion about how we judge and measure ourselves; that’s been the job of the Conscience.  Remember though where those measuring sticks have come from?  …… Childhood, the way others saw us and how we took in what they said.

5/16 Learning to Submit your Conscience for better Total Wholeness

August 10, 2012report

As we have discussed in our last posts, the Conscience has been programmed throughout our childhood, our teen years and into adulthood to believe certain things.   However, as we have said, some of these things the Conscience believes are NOT TRUE!  Trying to sort through what is true and what are false assumptions, half-truths and outright lies can be a long process…..unless we learn to handle the Conscience the way our Creator design for us.

One of the important tasks our Conscience has to in reaching for Total Wholeness is to learn to surrender.  In this post, we shall see what surrender really means and how to see the self-talk and views that stop that growth.

5/15 Two prayers for the Conscience to grow in Total Wholeness

August 17, 2012

Here are Two prayers for the Conscience that would be good to say to yourself everyday for the next week.  ….or you can print them out in a fancy font and put them somewhere you can see them often.

Prayer #1. 

“Creator of heaven and earth, thank You that You totally understand my total being.  I don’t need to pretend with You.  You see the depths of my hurt and traumas far more than I ever could.  I know You came to help me see my world the way You do.  So help me to hear my Conscience but to remodel the voice of my Conscience to Your voice.  Help my conscience to continue to allow You to do what You need to do as You make me over into Your image.

Guest Post – Christian Foundations on Conviction or Condemnation?

August 6, 2012

Our Guest Post by Pastor Sharon White:

A.   A FAREWELL DISCUSSION

This week our passage focuses on the Holy Spirit bringing conviction.

It’s part of a “Farewell Discourse” of Jesus’ outlining his departure and its effect on the disciples future. Saying goodbye is never easy. Apart from funerals, airport departure lounges are for me the epitome of places of sad farewells.

There is a classic story of goodbyes in the Bible, John 16:4 onwards. Jesus is sharing with his disciples that His departure is necessary so that they can fully embrace the future. He repeatedly points them to the benefits of his leaving. “…..It is for your good I’m going away.”

5/13 What you Feed controls you on your journey to Total Wholeness

July 25, 2012

Welcome back!  We continue with our theme for this post by focing on the self-talk issues.  Some people talk about ‘feeding the black dog or the white dog?’ …Others add the Cherokee Indian story and feature the ‘Black Wolf and the White Wolf’. 

Which ever example we wish to use, the truths of this well known story actually come from the Bible.  So let’s continue with the Conscience and how to feed the positive, Godly thoughts rather than the condemning, self-hating negative fears and doubts.

A.  CHECKING ON MY FACTS
