Thanksgiving Break! 

Keep going on your goals, and report 14 days the next time we meet! 

More people have gotten 28 days and have been added to the Hall of Fame!  Woohoo! Keep up the good work.  If you aren't feeling motivated, try some of the things we do in class to GET motivated!  

How will you create your day? What attitude are you going to choose - no matter what happens? How will you create happiness today?

Are you just drifting along?  How do you know when you are drifting away?

Have you heard these voices:  "It's _____ fault!"  or "I don't care, it's dumb anyway."
Have you felt grumpy or out of sorts and everything bugs you?

How soon can you notice where you are on the chemical scale?  Can you train your body to realize when your brain is being altered?

Emotions and thoughts can cause Physiological Reactions  (physical reaction due to chemical shifts in your brain/body - which can be caused by your thoughts and emotions.)

What physiological reactions do you get when you watch this video?  Pay attention to your body, notice the physical things you can feel.

November 13, 2015 Class #9

This week we had more people joining the Hall of Fame for getting 28 days - and some have gotten 28 days TWICE!  If you're one of those people who is struggling a bit to get your 28 days, please don't get discouraged.  We all have different strengths and weaknesses.  Just power up your warrior chemistry and get DETERMINED to do it!  (It took Sister Christensen 4 months - you will take your own amount of time to become determined enough to complete 28 days.) 

We learned how agency is affected by biochemical factors this week.  What does that even mean? Keep reading... 

A'GENCY, noun [Latin agens. See Act.]
1. The quality of moving or of exerting power; the state of being in action; action; operation; instrumentality; as, the agency of providence in the natural world.
2. The office of an agent, or factor; business of an agent entrusted with the concerns of another; as, the principal pays the charges of agency

 Who’s our principal? - Jesus Christ
Biochemical Factors in the Brain:
  • Anytime we experience something, the brain will react to it’s intensity
  • Positive / Negative - it’s by the intensity of which various chemicals are released
  • When these chemicals are released, we need to exercise agency (choose)
  • Negative Chemicals
       --  We need to activate positive chemicals in our limbic system (ie: deep
             breathing, relaxation techniques)
        --  We need to activate positive chemicals in our frontal cortex/  
            cerebral cortex (ie: Declarations, warrior chemistry)
  • Our choices can heal the brain, and create new neurological pathways thus breaking cycles of negative beliefs and creating for ourselves positive /  healthier outcomes.
It takes careful training to accurately change the neurological structures of the brain and chemical patterns.

ACT - Strategy to win
Access - How do I feel? (biochemical warfare engaged)  What do I hear?
Combat phase
  • Engage PLAN - remember the enemy, remember who you are, remember why are you fighting, be determined to win
Tell or Thanks

Spiritually speaking, do not forget that there is a malicious and intelligent entity behind all this. Satan knows about your neurological structures. Satan knows about your body chemistry. Satan knows about your potential on this planet. He is very strategic in his efforts to derail us.

Alma 50:1 -6   What shall you choose?
And now it came to pass that Moroni did not stop making preparations for war, or to defend his people against the Lamanites; for he caused that his armies should commence in the commencement of the twentieth year of the reign of the judges, that they should commence in digging up heaps of earth round about all the cities, throughout all the land which was possessed by the Nephites.
 And upon the top of these ridges of earth he caused that there should be timbers, yea, works of timbers built up to the height of a man, round about the cities.
 And he caused that upon those works of timbers there should be a frame of pickets built upon the timbers round about; and they were strong and high.
 And he caused towers to be erected that overlooked those works of pickets, and he caused places of security to be built upon those towers, that the stones and the arrows of the Lamanites could not hurt them.
 And they were prepared that they could cast stones from the top thereof, according to their pleasure and their strength, and slay him who should attempt to approach near the walls of the city.
 Thus Moroni did prepare strongholds against the coming of their enemies, round about every city in all the land.

November 6, 2015 - Class #8

Woohoo!  Lots of people add to the Hall of Fame today!  AND, Blue Team Girls rock!  Their whole team has gotten 28 days, so everyone in the whole class gets Frosties next week.  If you're not there yet, PLEASE don't give up.  You can do this!  

This week, we learned about Warrior Chemistry. Warrior chemistry is our antidote to the chemical spills that happen when we get satanic flashes.  It's what motivates us to move for what is right.  When we have our warrior chemistry activated, it moves us to action to do what is right.  We are determined to succeed, we love others!

Heavenly Father created males to be the protectors and guardians of His daughters and children. Notice if you are feeling annoyed with any females or little kids in your life!  Females were created to be compassionate nurturers of children.  Notice when you aren't feeling compassionate! 

How do you activate your warrior chemistry when you notice yourself starting to go down the chemical scale?  

Get up and move 
PWR actions 
Visualize yourself as a warrior 
Inspirational videos (Check out this website!)
Write or say WHY you are fighting
Say out loud that you are a warrior! 
Strike a power pose
Cheer for someone
Serve someone (Especially women and children if you're a guy, anyone if you're a girl)

What else can you think of?  


*Work on your PWR Goals.  Add your WIN goals by emailing your captain and starting if you're at that point!

*Make a list of ways to activate your warrior chemistry for when start feeling yourself going down on the scale.  Then do them!    

*Make sure you read your weekly email from your captain and follow what you need to do there.  

If you are missing any pages for your binder, you can find most of them on the HANDOUTS page
