Something that I’ve been reading leading up to the New Year is the idea of theme. Apparently, people have been declaring themes for a while. I thought it is a great idea so I declared my theme on my Facebook page. You can see mine HERE. While you are there, why don’t you give the LIKE button a little click?
I like the idea of declaring a theme because it seems so strategic – and I like strategy! I like planning and being intentional. It goes with the principle in Habbakkuk 2:2-3 ~ And the LORD answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that breadth it. For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry.
When you write visions and plans down you are expressing what is in your heart to do and deliver. You have focused direction. Like a compass. A map. This principle holds true in science too. Studies show that when you write your New Year’s plans down -even if you do not revisit them during the year- you have a 44% greater chance of achieving them! This illustrates the power of your subconscious mind. in the goal setting process. The brain has a filter called the Reticular Activating System (RAS) which is responsible for altered arousal. It is the part of your brain that makes you aware of what’s happening in the world relevant to you. The RAS is at work when you are pregnant and suddenly it seems that everyone is pregnant. Or, you buy a car and now you see that car everywhere. In the same way, if you’ve heightened your awareness and you’ve set a theme for the year, the RAS will alert you to relevance and opportunities. Your subconscious mind is working for you.
To be sure, be ready and prepared for opposition. More often than not, when you are trying to move in a positive direction, there will be challenges to test your declaration.
In the spirit of declaring your theme. In setting your course for the year. In putting to work the RAS of your subconsciousness –
