Change Your Thinking, Change Your Life

Change Your Thinking, Change Your Life.
By Graham Cooke

In a Kingdom lifestyle, we don’t deal with our negatives. We get to ignore them because Jesus has already dealt with them.

He sent negative things packing and nobody in the Godhead is going to bring them back. However, this does not mean we don’t like to occasionally bring them back.

The key to kingdom living is learning to flip the switch in our own thinking so that our lives match what God has already promised us
We are accustomed to seeing ourselves as we are in the world. But in Christ, different perceptions, perspectives, and rules apply.

When you read the the sermon on the mount, you catch Jesus saying, “you have heard it said but now I say,” multiple times. This is apparently His way of saying “FLIP THE SWITCH!”

He’s addressing what we have been taught to do and how to think by both the world’s and religion’s standard. He’s confronting our subtle paradigms and beliefs. And He is saying, “We never said that, this is what we are actually saying. Let me introduce you to how My Father’s Kingdom works.”

For many of us, we are still in process of making this switch. We are learning and unlearning, replacing what we formerly thought to be true with the reality of His Kingdom.
It’s like flipping a light switch when you enter a dark room. This is exactly what His truth does, it brings us into the light so that we can experience more of His life. How often do we say: “Awe the light just switched on, now I get it”? These are the epiphanies that change our thinking and renew our minds. They upgrade our perception and give us a new lens to see.

Once the switch is flipped and His light comes on, we see things from His perspective. We are directly connected to the truth that always sets us free, releasing blessings and promises into our lives.

Here is one of the more simple ways to flip the switch from day to day.
You can’t have a negative in your life without the opposite also being there.

So, when you’re hit with a negative thought or feeling, take a pause and ask Holy Spirit what the opposite of that particular negative is. Once the epitome of it arrives in your thoughts, dwell on it for at least a minute. Simply by “dwelling on something that is pure and holy” and POSITIVE, you’re effectively flipping the switch...

People with depression use language differently – here’s how to Find it

From the way you move and sleep, to how you interact with people around you, depression changes just about everything. It is even noticeable in the way you speak and express yourself in writing. Sometimes this “language of depression” can have a powerful effect on others. Just consider the impact of the poetry and song lyrics of Sylvia Plath and Kurt Cobain, who both killed themselves after suffering from depression.

Scientists have long tried to pin down the exact relationship between depression and language, and technology is helping us get closer to a full picture. Our new study, published in Clinical Psychological Science, has now unveiled a class of words that can help accurately predict whether someone is suffering from depression.

Traditionally, linguistic analyses in this field have been carried out by researchers reading and taking notes. Nowadays, computerised text analysis methods allow the processing of extremely large data banks in minutes. This can help spot linguistic fea…

The Moral Logic of Survivor Guilt

If there is one thing we have learned from returning war veterans

Posted Jul 20, 2011

If there is one thing we have learned from returning war veterans - especially those of the last decade - it's that the emotional reality of the soldier at home is often at odds with that of the civilian public they left behind. And while friends and families of returning service members may be experiencing gratefulness or relief this summer, many of those they've welcomed home are likely struggling with other emotions.

High on that list of emotions is guilt. Soldiers often carry this burden home-- survivor guiltbeing perhaps the kind most familiar to us. In war, standing here rather than there can save your life but cost a buddy his. It's flukish luck, but you feel responsible. The guilt begins an endless loop of counterfactuals-thoughts that you could have or should have done otherwise, though in fact you did nothing w…

Social scientists have been studying motivation for decades, trying to find out what motivates our behaviour, how and why.

Dozens of theories of motivation have been proposed over the years. Here are 5 popular theories of motivation that can help you increase workplace productivity…

1. Hertzberg’s Two-Factor Theory

The Two-Factor Theory of motivation(otherwise known as dual-factor theory or motivation-hygiene theory) was developed by psychologist Frederick Herzberg in the 1950s.

Analysing the responses of 200 accountants and engineers who were asked about their positive and negative feelings about their work, Herzberg found 2 factors that influence employee motivation and satisfaction…
