Thoughts Are Your Greatest Power- Learn How To Harness It

Thoughts Are Your Greatest Power- Learn How To Harness It

Your thoughts run through your active mind all day long and help to create your experience of life. It is believed that we have approximately 60,000 thoughts per day, which equates to about 42 thoughts per minute. So how many of those thoughts are you aware of? How many of those thoughts are helping you or hurting you?

Many thoughts are repetitive, day after day, year after year, and decade after decade. Imagine if some of those repetitive thoughts are not of the highest possible vibration? Could it effect our bodies, our minds and our lives?

In the attached video, Dr. Masaru Emoto showed the impact of how thoughts put into music or written down, effected the water he was testing.

“By exposing water to a particular word or piece of music, freezing it, and photographing the ice crystals formed, Dr. Emoto has shown that from beautiful words and music, come beautiful crystals, and from mean-spirited, negative words, come malformed and misshapen crystals. What is the significance?

It becomes clear when we remember that the adult human body is approximately 70% water and infant bodies are about 90% water. We can be hurt emotionally and, as the water can be changed, for the worse physically by negativity. However, we are always closer to beauty when surrounded by positive thoughts, words, intentions and ultimately those vibrations.”1

Many of our thoughts are repetitive and arise from the deep subconscious level. So, if we are experiencing over 60,000 thoughts per day and we are not aware of many of them, how are we creating our lives? Are we creating by default, using old, outdated thoughts and beliefs? Or are we aware of our thinking, influencing it, and taking charge of what we are thinking?

Thought Power Process:

So how does one begin to master their thoughts? It’s actually quite simple using this exercise below.

Step 1:

For the next minute, think consciously. Be aware of the thoughts you are thinking. Are these thoughts happy or sad, fearful or delightful, loving or hateful? How do the thoughts make you feel inside?

Step 2:

All thoughts, conscious or unconscious, will create a feeling inside of you.  Acknowledging that feeling allows you to define the type of thought you are experiencing. This is the beginning of awakening your own mind and power. Welcome to the potential of creating a new world for yourself.

Step 3:

Decide. Do you like the feeling the thought is creating within you? Does it make you feel good or bad, happy or sad, revengeful or forgiving, fearful or loving? You begin to ask yourself, are these even my thoughts? Am I just repeating old beliefs that were handed down to me by friends, society, and family? Do I really believe these thoughts I am thinking? Then make a conscious decision to change the thoughts that are no longer serving your highest and best life.

The End Result:

Liberation. True freedom will begin to arise in your life. Repeating these three steps over and over will make the greatest changes you have ever seen in your life because as you change your thoughts, you change who you are, what you believe in and what you will experience around you.

Dr. Joe Dispenza is author of, You are the Placebo-Making Your Mind Matter. He shares his findings on the power of the mind and the effect thoughts have on our health and our lives.

“As we learn new things and have new experiences in our lives, our neurons make new connections, exchanging electrochemical information with each other. Those connections are called synaptic connections. Our thoughts produce a blend of various chemicals called neurotransmitters (serotonin, dopamine and acetylcholine). When we continue thinking the same thoughts, the neuron keeps firing in the same way. So as soon as you think a new thought, you become changed-neurologically.”2

Thought is the spark from which the flame of creation is ignited in our lives.

The thoughts could be as simple as asking, “What should I have for lunch?” or as complicated as, “Why am I here?” Either way, as you become aware of the thoughts running through your mind, you begin to take charge of your thoughts and thus the creation of your life.

You are awakening to a new level of awareness and a new level of power over yourself. You discover the real you as layer upon layer of false thoughts are removed. Your thoughts become your own and you challenge your own thinking. Once you understand you own, the power over your thoughts and what to think, you begin to retrain your mind to become your greatest power and best ally, in this adventure called life. There are wonderful websites that are accessible to provide information about your powerful thoughts.

Here are some:

“With the new day comes new strength and new thoughts.” – Eleanor Roosevelt

The Best Way to Create a Vision for the Life You Want

The Best Way to Create a Vision for the Life You Want

Creating a vision for your life might seem like a frivolous, fantastical waste of time, but it’s not: creating a compelling vision of the life you want is actually one of the most effective strategies for achieving the life of your dreams. Perhaps the best way to look at the concept of a life vision is as a compass to help guide you to take the best actions and make the right choices that help propel you toward your best life.

your vision of where or who you want to be is the greatest asset you have

    Why You Need a Vision

    Experts and life success stories support the idea that with a vision in mind, you are more likely to succeed far beyond what you could otherwise achieve without a clear vision. Think of crafting your life vision as mapping a path to your personal and professional dreams. Life satisfaction and personal happiness are within reach. The harsh reality is that if you don’t develop your own vision, you’ll allow other people and circumstances to direct the course of your life.

    How to Create Your Life Vision

    Don’t expect a clear and well-defined vision overnight—envisioning your life and determining the course you will follow requires time, and reflection. You need to cultivate vision and perspective, and you also need to apply logic and planning for the practical application of your vision. Your best vision blossoms from your dreams, hopes, and aspirations. It will resonate with your values and ideals, and will generate energy and enthusiasm to help strengthen your commitment to explore the possibilities of your life.

    What Do You Want?

    The question sounds deceptively simple, but it’s often the most difficult to answer. Allowing yourself to explore your deepest desires can be very frightening. You may also not think you have the time to consider something as fanciful as what you want out of life, but it’s important to remind yourself that a life of fulfillment does not usually happen by chance, but by design.

    It’s helpful to ask some thought-provoking questions to help you discover the possibilities of what you want out of life. Consider every aspect of your life, personal and professional, tangible and intangible. Contemplate all the important areas, family and friends, career and success, health and quality of life, spiritual connection and personal growth, and don’t forget about fun and enjoyment.

    Some tips to guide you:

    • Remember to ask why you want certain things
    • Think about what you want, not on what you don’t want.
    • Give yourself permission to dream.
    • Be creative. Consider ideas that you never thought possible.
    • Focus on your wishes, not what others expect of you.

    Some questions to start your exploration:

    • What really matters to you in life? Not what should matter, what does matter.
    • What would you like to have more of in your life?
    • Set aside money for a moment; what do you want in your career?
    • What are your secret passions and dreams?
    • What would bring more joy and happiness into your life?
    • What do you want your relationships to be like?
    • What qualities would you like to develop?
    • What are your values? What issues do you care about?
    • What are your talents? What’s special about you?
    • What would you most like to accomplish?
    • What would legacy would you like to leave behind?

    It may be helpful to write your thoughts down in a journal or creative vision board if you’re the creative type. Add your own questions, and ask others what they want out of life. Relax and make this exercise fun. You may want to set your answers aside for a while and come back to them later to see if any have changed or if you have anything to add.

    What Would Your Best Life Look Like?

    Describe your ideal life in detail. Allow yourself to dream and imagine, and create a vivid picture. If you can’t visualize a picture, focus on how your best life would feel. If you find it difficult to envision your life 20 or 30 years from now, start with five years—even a few years into the future will give you a place to start. What you see may surprise you. Set aside preconceived notions. This is your chance to dream and fantasize.

    A few prompts to get you started:

    • What will you have accomplished already?
    • How will you feel about yourself?
    • What kind of people are in your life? How do you feel about them?
    • What does your ideal day look like?
    • Where are you? Where do you live? Think specifics, what city, state, or country, type of community, house or an apartment, style and atmosphere.
    • What would you be doing?
    • Are you with another person, a group of people, or are you by yourself?
    • How are you dressed?
    • What’s your state of mind? Happy or sad? Contented or frustrated?
    • What does your physical body look like? How do you feel about that?
    • Does your best life make you smile and make your heart sing? If it doesn’t, dig deeper, dream bigger.

    It’s important to focus on the result, or at least a way-point in your life. Don’t think about the process for getting there yet—that’s the next stepGive yourself permission to revisit this vision every day, even if only for a few minutes. Keep your vision alive and in the front of your mind.

    Plan Backwards

    It may sound counter-intuitive to plan backwards rather than forwards, but when you’re planning your life from the end result, it’s often more useful to consider the last step and work your way back to the first. This is actually a valuable and practical strategy for making your vision a reality.

    • What’s the last thing that would’ve had to happen to achieve your best life?
    • What’s the most important choice you would’ve had to make?
    • What would you have needed to learn along the way?
    • What important actions would you have had to take?
    • What beliefs would you have needed to change?
    • What habits or behaviors would you have had to cultivate?
    • What type of support would you have had to enlist?
    • How long will it have taken you to realize your best life?
    • What steps or milestones would you have needed to reach along the way?

    Now it’s time to think about your first step, and the next step after that. Ponder the gap between where you are now and where you want to be in the future. It may seem impossible, but it’s quite achievable if you take it step-by-step.

    It’s important to revisit this vision from time to time. Don’t be surprised if your answers to the questions, your technicolor vision, and the resulting plans change. That can actually be a very good thing; as you change in unforeseeable ways, the best life you envision will change as well. For now, it’s important to use the process, create your vision, and take the first step towards making that vision a reality.
