In 2 Corinthians 10:5, St. Paul says “we take every thought captive to make it obedient to Christ.” Guess what! At Metanoia Catholic we have a process to this, and it will change your life. This simple exercise, the Thought Recon, has a way of uncovering our hidden destructive mindsets, many of which keep us from living truly happy lives. Like in military reconnaissance, we share how this simple exercise is also a must-master practice to being an effective spiritual warrior. This exercise is something you can apply IMMEDIATELY in your life for immediate results.
It’s one thing to ask yourself to REASON through a difficult situation to gain a healthy perspective. It’s another thing when God lends you His own wisdom. True Metanoia in the Christian life requires the latter, and we want to share our simple approach to help you open your mind and heart to receive God’s own mind and heart.
Many of our clients at Metanoia Catholic are young adults with relationship struggles. In a relationship, there are two people having thoughts about one another, and who they are before the other. The thoughts that we allow will determine whether we enter dating relationships from a clean or toxic place.
Are you dating from a clean place? In this episode, we share tools for self-reflection, and how to clean up your mind to find greater success in dating.
The philosophy of Stoicism is making a resurgence and serves as one of the primary pillars of the self-development industry. In the episode, we explore the trajectory of Stoicism, its compatibility or lack-there-of with the Christian life, and what that means in our approach to Stoicism as Christians.
The three categories of lies that keep us from God are (1) Lies Against God, (2) Lies Against Ourselves, and (3) Lies Against our Life’s Mission. Metanoia and living a foretaste of heaven in this life entails purging our interior lives of these destructive mindsets and allowing God’s grace to renew our minds. In this episode, we’re diving into the first of these categories, Lies Against God, so that we can reflect on our own hearts and identify the lies keeping us from intimacy with the Father.
People fear failure, but many also fear success. Do we even know how to define these terms that hold such power over how we live our lives? If you are a success junkie or have failure-phobia, we dive into the definition of these terms and reduce their weightiness so that people might feel free to respond to their desires, aspirations, and promptings of the Spirit.
