Reeducate Your Executive Faculty
By Winifred Wilkinson Hausmann
(excerpted from Your God-Given Potential)
It is our job in developing our God-given potentialities to reeducate the will, the directing power of our mind, to teach it to become receptive to spiritual motivation, rather than to goals determined by our materialistic pursuits alone …
One way or another, we are using our will, our executive mind power, all the time. We choose a course of action. We resist or resent. We submit or fight back. We aim high or we slide backward. Or we are willing to consecrate and dedicate our will to God and to let it be reeducated to go His way.
A New Freedom
Jesus was our great Way Shower in overcoming the human, selfish motivation of the will and allowing it to be replaced by a great unification with the divine will, producing good for all …
The rewards of unifying our wills with the will of God are great. They include health, happiness, joy, peace, harmony, prosperity, and other good that we cannot even visualize in our present state of consciousness …
Learning to activate the divine will in your life does not mean that you will simply submit to the human will of others.
Many inharmonies in human relationships result from the clash of human wills. Learning to activate the divine will in your life does not mean that you will simply submit to the human will of others.

Let Divine Love and Understanding Pour Forth
When you find yourself confronted by a strong will that insists you go its way, turn within to the Christ, the God self, the spiritual core of your nature, and silently say to the other person:
“The Christ in me beholds the Christ in you.”
Let the love of God and the understanding of the spiritual nature of that other person pour forth from you so strongly that there is no conflict of human wills. Rather, there is a higher power at work, establishing harmony and order …
We can start first to awaken the will and train it by consciously watching its activities and directing it through our growing spiritual understanding.
A Meditation on the Power of Will
By Rev. Bronte Colbert
My spiritual will is the energy of confident living, decision-making, and determination.
My power of choice helps me stand strong and resilient when I feel challenged. I am able to respect the preferences of others while maintaining my own healthy boundaries.
I make decisions that are grounded in my positive nature and expect them to unfold with perfect, joy-filled outcomes. I notice and appreciate synchronicities and sacred moments that are filled with the unmistakable presence of God.
My mind, heart, and inner being recognize and rejoice in the infinite possibilities life offers me. From an elevated spiritual view, I make choices that are life-affirming and growth-oriented.
Affirm: I move forward with confidence as I consciously choose each step on my path.
