Week 8 – still on diet


I´m still on the “mental diet”. Have not yet made one whole day without falling, but I have become more and more awere of the negative thougths when they occur in the brain. When my husband has told me about persons and situations at his work that he´s upset about I have stayed out of the negativity and I have just told him to not put any energy on that. I´m feeling rather pleased with myself.

A directive for this week is to not watch TV at all. I usually watch TV very little, so it´s not a problem for me to stay from it. This evening I have however been to the movies. It´s not very often I go to the movies but it is my daughters 15 birthday today and she have been waiting for the latest Hunger Games for months. Her greatest wish was that we would go to the movie the whole family on her birthday and we had promised her to do, and offcourse we did. I like the Hunger Games but it is not a very positive story, so I hope my brain has not absorbed to much negativity tonight.

I like Emmet Fox and The Seven Day Mental Diet a lot and I must quote him again:
“If I change my mind my conditions must change too – my body must change, my daily work or other activities must change, my home must change, the colour tone of my whole life must change – for wether I can be habitually happy and cheerful, or low-spirited and fearful, depends entirely on the quality on the mental food upon which I diet myself.”

I firmly believe in these words, and I am determined to succeed with the seven day mental diet.

Love and light to all of you.

  1. Hey Maria, I just shared your week 8 mental diet by hitting the Twitter button and it somehow ended up on my page, and looks like my tweet. Not quiet sure how to delete it! any ideas??


  2. Your post amazed me, Maria. I am just sitting down to write my blog for this week and I, too, agreed to go to a movie tonight with my family. My son picked the movie (he’s 25) and I had no idea what it was going to be about. But about 20 minutes into it I realized it was a story about a very disturbed individual. So I tried to tune it out and even tried (unsuccessfully) to fall asleep. So I came home, read MK lesson 8, GS and all of my cards. Since I’m not sure what the impact of that movie had, I’m going to start the mental diet over again….even though I just completed 2 days. I find this all so inspiring, that I have no problem making this decision.
