From what I’ve read and learned, I believe that our entire reality is powerfully shaped by our thoughts; to the degree that our thoughts actually become things1..
Literally, we manifest our beliefs and our thoughts.
A classic example I’d like to share with you is from a few weeks ago when we were looking for our next place to stay. We clearly saw in our minds what we wanted: a beautiful, secluded space, surrounded by a wall of trees.
A place where we could hear the native birds and just experience being in a haven, yet also have easy access to the places we’d need to go.
Then, we saw that very place online.
Interestingly, I caught myself thinking ‘well, how likely is it that this place is even still available?’ (Do you notice what my thought was creating?…lack and want.)
Fortunately, I caught this rogue thought right then and there, and smothered it with feelings of bliss – of being in that wee haven.
Fascinatingly, whilst I’m writing this to you, I’m staying in that very place we saw online and one I almost thought myself out of.
Is this something you’ve ever caught yourself doing – can you relate?
Let’s connect in this week’s #FiFridayLive when we’ll dive deeper.
In the meantime, keep sharing your sunshine 🙂
1. The Waking Times explains the concept of thoughts becoming things as follows – “Because you are energy, you are like a magnet. Everything is energy; you, your mind and your body. But as you can control your body, you can also control your mind. …Your mind can be your best friend or your worst enemy…If you can control your mind it’s your best friend, because it will create your great future” (http://www.wakingtimes.com/2012/02/18/how-thoughts-become-things/).
