Is there power in your mind? How did it get there, was it from what you read or what you have seen? Do you have the tools to access inner Mental Power? Think for a second and honestly reflect on the idea of being able to understand what you read to the point that you can accurately act on it till you have a successful outcome.
Okay, think about it this way, when was the last time you put together a Ikea BESTÅ TV storage combo entertainment center with sliding doors only to have left over screws or an extra “thing-a-ma-jig”?! Be honest, did you read the instructions first and then went to work on the project never to reference the instructions again? Or did you read and reread them over and over to make sure you’re putting together the project right, or are you like me, look at the box and just start putting it together without any manual except the picture on the box?

Access Inner Mental Power
When you use your mind to do puzzles you are in fact using your mental powers. The amount of “POWER” you have can depend on many different factors. We can look at the use of mental powers the same as mental health. We need to have the right tools to accomplish our goal. Our goal is balance and recovery. True recovery can’t happen if we just give our “mental issues” one glance over and think we know how to fix it. We can’t have a “thing-a-ma-jig” left over in our recovery.
Do you have the tools to access inner Mental Power? I think, we all kind of fall into three problem solving personality types that I put in three categories. I call them the “Gut This”, “Re-readers” and the “Master Minds”.
