2018 SHM WEEKLY WISDOM TITBITS. WEEK 16. INNER EYES, PART 2

SHM_Meditation, 01_person-meditating
Hello there, friends. Last week we began our understanding of the fact that the spiritual controls the physical. Thank you for the enquiries and questions that came. I am trusting Him that He will provide answers to those questions this week.
 
First, what are those inner eyes? Simple. Our hearts. No, not the physical one that pumps blood and keeps us alive. Another. You can call it your spiritual heart if you want. Remember that out of our hearts flow issues of life? And that the heart of man is desperately wicked? These admonitions of the Lord refer, not to the physical heart, but the spiritual one.
 
Second, how do we deploy this inner heart to affect what happens in the spiritual realm, that now impacts the physical? By placing it at the disposal of the force that controls all realms – He who sits upon the circle of the earth and makes the earth His footstool. We constantly need to ask Him to open the eyes of our heart to see as He sees. Trust me, once you get a hang of this, your decision making would go to another level, as you would see (some will say ‘sense’ things before they happen and with wisdom, prepare for them). Trust me also, it is such a sweet advantage that makes those around you wonder!
 
Third, if you resist the temptation to use this advantage for selfish ends (as is likely for many), then another vista would open unto you to influence what happens in and around you. Because the ability to horn this grace depends on what use you put it.
 
Let me leave you, my friends, with this – why not meditate on this – Father, open the eyes of my heart to see as you see?
 
I see many doing great and mighty things from now on. We love you!

2018 SHM WEEKLY WISDOM TITBIT. WEEK 15. INNER EYES, PART 1.

SHM_Meditation, 01_person-meditating
Every human being is equipped with 2 sets of eyes. I know, strange, right? Let me explain. We have our pair of eyes that sees outward, that takes in images and sends the signals of them to our brains to decode and interpret in nano seconds. Yes.
 
But there is also our inner eyes. Not visible to the sight of others, but really it is that which ought to drive our lives. I pray I get inspiration not to make this too complicated. This is the way of it.
 
The physical realm is a manifestation. It is not where decisions that matter are taken. Life changing, situation altering decisions take place in a realm above this physical. Whatever faith you profess, this is the truth of it. What happens therefore in our lives, in our environment are influenced by decisions taken outside those lives, that environment. Lord, help me!
 
So, simply put, there is this realm where important decisions that we see and live through are made. AND THE GREAT NEWS IS THAT YOU AND I CAN ACCESS, AND INFLUENCE THE DECISIONS THERE! That is part of what being a little lower than Elohim means! How do we do this?
 
Well that will be our discuss next week. I need to leave us with this thought though. The spiritual influences the physical, and you have a say on how that works in your life and circumstance. So, please use this week to meditate on this and we will take it up from there next week. God bless you!
 
You shall excel In Jesus’ mighty name. We love you!

SHM WEEKLY WISDOM TITBIT. WEEK 13. “TOMORROW”

SHM_Tomorrow, 01

 

Dear friends, how are you this week? Hope you Year has been profitable thus far? Hallelujah!

Growing up, my parents drummed in my siblings and me that man has no power to achieve anything by himself. I am sure this resonates with some of you too. The foundation for this admonition is that only the Almighty controls the future, and we have to plan (set goals, prepare strategies for these goals etc.) firmly within His power over the future.

I want to remind some of us who may have forgotten, or any for who this is fresh teaching, that man’s times and seasons are outside the say so of any man. Yes, no matter how smart those goals may be, or hung-ho those strategies may be, you need to be alive to execute them!

A visit to the cemetery would reveal the powerlessness of man on this issue of “tomorrow”. There lies many who used to be accomplished, those for whom doors were opened and food served on silver platters! Those doors, the food and silver platters would now be used be some other fellow! Akika, Olodumare! [great God!}

So, my friends, the wise thing to do is ALWAYS to pre-fix our plans thus: “If the Master wills it, and we’re still alive, we’ll do this or that.” This is wisdom indeed, as we commit all to the pleasure of He who rules and controls the affairs of all men. It also show our total dependence on He who knows tomorrow from yesterday! Anything else does not really speak to application of knowledge.

You shall excel In Jesus’ mighty name. We love you!

SHM WEEKLY WISDOM TITBIT. WEEK 12. CAPACITY TO MEDITATE.

SHM_LEXCONSULTS_Thinking, 2
Creativity does not just happen; it does not stand alone. It begins with a thought process. It is ends with a thought process! All forms of creativity are done in between the two ‘thought modes’. Take an example. The creation of a plastic chair. It does not just happen.
 
There would have been the initial concept stage when what is needed is determined – an elegant chair, made of plastic. Then would have come the design stage, with all that would have gone into it – materials, shape, weight, drawings etc. Only then would the manufacturing stage begin. Once a product is birthed, then the ‘second though mode kicks in – marketing, commercials etc.
 
In effect, capacity to master the ‘thought modes’ ensures successful creativity. So, do you have capacity to meditate, to think things through in an orderly fashion? That is the focus of our wisdom titbit this week.
 
Now, meditation has been defined as continued or extended thought, reflection or contemplation. To meditate on something is to give that thing deep thought, refection, quiet time, brainwork, pondering. Do you have capacity to do that on any particular area of your work or enterprise?
 
If the answer for now is NO, do not despair. There is a way out. And that is by developing the capacity to do just that – think deep, reflect, spend time in quiet contemplation, exercise your brain power, and ponder. It may sound high sounding, but it is really not. Truth is every sound human mind has this capacity at one level or the other.
 
See, before you settle on a meal, for instance, you would have gone through this process; only that you did not recognise it as a meditative process because it usually is a short process. It is the same pattern THAT YOU HAVE TO LEARN TO STRETCH OUT! Simple as that! Only difference is that as each field of endeavour becomes technical, so would the meditative process be.
 
Begin today, set out time just to be alone to think things through. If you know us, you will know we encourage baby steps. Extend the contemplative period as you grow. No shame in jotting things down. No shame in how long it takes! But being already!
 
Now, go ahead and shine this week. You shall excel In Jesus’ mighty name. We love you!

2018 SHM WEEKLY WISDOM TITBITS. WEEK 8. PARADIGM SHIFT.

 

SHM_PARADIGM SHIFT, 1

To advance in life, to move from one level to another does not start with the labour (physical) that you put in.
 
No, it begins as a mental exercise. In your imagination.
 
Sadly, this appears a bridge too far for many! Often times, most people want to work in ‘settled/stable” environment. What I mean is they want a state of certainty – processes ‘tried and tested’; all they need so is just slide in, and enjoy the ride. What fun is in that, just to be part of the crowd? Nah!!!
 
Dear friends, trust me, what advances the course of mankind is thoughts outside the box – leading to inventions, innovations, new discoveries. To achieve this, we need a paradigm shift – from the norm to destructive creations. This, successfully done, makes you a pioneer of sorts, a leader of thought – now that is becoming creme de la creme!
 
To achieve this state of mind, you need to develop your capacity to dream unconventional dreams. You will also need to develop capacity for the needed grit (read hard work) to get you there.
 
And then, be willing to learn from entrepreneurs/achievers/pioneers who have walked the same path successfully before you. You know, of course, that you do not necessarily have to personally interface with these successful pioneers to learn from them? Get their materials – books, cds, etc. Research them (use google or other search engines as a starting place), and carve your own niche.
 
We encourage to begin the journey to shift your mindset in the direction that nothing is impossible! Begin today dear friend.
 
We love you!

2018 SHM WISDOM TITBITS. Week 4. WHERE DO YOU LIVE – THE PAST OR PRESENT?

SHM_LEXCONSULTS_future past present sign illustration

 

 

My dear reader, how has your year been so far? Mine has been great, praise God! This week, laid on my heart to share with you is that success and failure are dangerous in equal dimensions! That sounds strange, doesn’t it? If all we work towards is succeeding, how can we then interpose a danger in it? If all we aim to change is failure to success, why then glorify failure, right? Come along with me, and see for yourselves.

Success becomes a foundation to much more success ONLY for those who use whatever success they achieve as a stepping stone or leverage to other successes. Get your first, say, real estate, and leverage it to get more – that grows your portfolio, doesn’t it? But not many are able to turn success into a leverage for more. These are those who are easily satisfied with whatever it is they achieve. They build a monument to the achievement, and religiously relive it, year in year out!

They become so successful about the past that they fail to prepare for the future in the present. Many whose earlier successes turned to failure fall squarely in this same category.

Now for failure, the same principle applies. A lot wallow in the pain and regret of deals gone bad, or relationships gone burst! Some even wear it as a badge of honor! Come on, already! Your present life must not be held hostage by the past, so that your future can be better!

Every one of us is better served leaving things of the past just there – in the past; and pressing toward better marks! Forget the myriad reasons why you failed, learn lessons from the failure and MOVE ON, never looking back to mop or grumble. Same for successes, MOVE ON! Leave history the job of recalling and regaling others of your past successes. This is the secret of many omnipreneurs of today. {An omnipreneur takes an entrepreneurial approach to every aspect of life–work, family, community, health, finances, spirituality, and more.}

You shall excel In Jesus’ mighty name. We love you!

2018 SHM WISDOM TITBITS. Week 3. HOW MUCH TIME DO YOU SET ASIDE FOR THINKING?

SHM_LEXCONSULTS_Thinking, 1
To say we live in a fast-paced world is to state the obvious. We indeed live in a ‘microwave’ era, where not only do we live on the fast lane, but we curiously want solutions and results in a way food is made hot in a microwave. Sorry, but a past-paced lifestyle and effective, long lasting results are mutually exclusive!
 
Why?
 
For the same reason it takes about 9 months for a foetus to become a human child! For the same reason it takes a newborn baby time to talk intelligibly, walk, and develop other motor competences to last a life time!
 
So, in this era when we are constantly pressured to be on the move, we need to carve creative time for ourselves. At least for those who want to be in the top 10% of their professions or business endeavours – just to THINK. The quality of your thinking time would determine how far you can see and go in life or any thing you venture! I am yet to see any short-cut to this.
 
If you master the art of deep thoughts, you will discover that: (1) you will not be easily tossed around by the doctrine of men,
(2) your output into any thing you venture will become better refined. Often, the first ideas are not the best ones. It takes devoted thoughts to refine them,
(3) your earning power will increase by the reason that well thought out solutions attract better value.
 
So, be smart, live a life of deep thinking!
 
You shall excel In Jesus’ mighty name. We love you!
