I am so convinced of the power of our thoughts. I've experienced it in my own life and my clients' lives over and over and over.
Bruce Lipton, a scientist in epigenetics, studies the impact of our thoughts and beliefs on our genetic predispositions; and now has evidence that how you think and what you believe does indeed impact whether or not your predispositions actualize.
He suggests that we'd benefit by equating our thoughts with spending money, and considering the return on them. In other words, if you had to pay for each thought you had, would you waste it on thoughts that don't do you any good?
How do you know if they're doing you good or not? Well, it's quite simple. If you don't feel good after thinking them, then they're not doing you or anyone any good! It's like wasting your "money"!
New Possibilities for You
- Use your thoughts (i.e. spend your "money") wisely! What you put your attention on expands. Perhaps you've heard of self fulfilling prophecies? It's like that!
- My favorite analogy is that your mind is like a GPS. It will try its best to take you where you direct it to go. Your thoughts are those directions. For those of us who believe in the law of attraction, this analogy is taken to an even bigger scope of directing the Universe where to take you.
- Learning this takes practice. Begin by at least noticing when you don't feel so good, and becoming aware of the thoughts just preceding those feelings. What inner narrative was going on? Pivot to a better feeling thought. Try out a better feeling perspective, as if you were supporting a good friend or loved one. How would you speak to them about that issue?
