We think approximately 60,000 thoughts daily. We are always thinking. Our mind can be our best friend or our worst enemy depending on what we choose to do with it. God has given us a powerful tool that allows us to be the creators of our lives.
We are completely in charge of our minds. No matter how we are feeling physically or emotionally, we are free mentally to think any thought of our choice.
Our mental body is at a higher vibration than our emotional body, meaning our minds are more powerful than our feelings. We have been trained to listen to our feelings and create thoughts that match our feelings.
Therefore, if we are feeling negative feelings, we will think negative thoughts. We believe we cannot start thinking and perceiving ourselves in a positive light until we feel positive feelings. Take charge of your life by taking charge of your thoughts. Change your life by changing your thoughts.
Remember every time you verbalize, in private or in public, that you don't deserve this or that, you can't do this or that, or that you are less important than something or someone else, your biology will hear it and act accordingly. What do you want to tell your life force?
By thinking thoughts that make you feel good, you increase your vibration. Every person has an electromagnetic field with a vibration that sends a signal out into the world. Since we are all at quantum level patterns of light and sound frequencies, we are constantly sending messages to the Universe.
The Universe is life force or matter unorganized. The Universe offers us one guarantee: that everything we put out returns to us multiplied. It is not the words you say that are most important, it is the vibration you send out to the Universe. Your thoughts are your most powerful mechanism for controlling your vibration.
Creating a strong intention in which you can hold a belief is the most powerful way to use your thoughts. Intentions are decisions, goals, ideas, wants, desires, and choices that are stated in the affirmative. A spiritual term for intention is faith.
Whatever you put your faith in will be your life experience. When you match your intentions with a positive feeling of hope, you send a signal out to the Universe that is honored, and you receive what you have intended.
As you make decisions each day about what you want to experience, you set into motion the creation of that experience. You are the one who literally molds your future experience. As you set thoughts of what you want into motion, in combination with the excited emotion, you will be in a perfect position to receive that which you desire.
The more specific you are about what you want, the more specifically you will receive that which you want. The more vague you are in stating what you want, the more vaguely you will receive that which you want.
What keeps us from asking for what we want or thinking of the ideal? Often it is our fear that we will not get it and we will be disappointed. We believe that God is in charge and it is up to him if we are to have something. We believe that what we want may not be harmonious with what God wants for us, and we don't want to take the risk of asking amiss.
What if God trusted us and gave us full reign to create whatever we choose for our experience? What if our ideal desire is what God wants for us, and all we have to do is make a decision, ask for it, and we then will receive it.
A common pattern of many of my clients has been to expect the worst, especially if it is something they really want. I ask them, "Why do you choose that thought?" Most explain, "Because then I am prepared when bad things happen, or I can prevent the worst from happening."
I then teach them that they are setting themselves up for the worst to happen. The greatest power we have in avoiding the worst is to intend for the best to happen. I ask my clients, "If everything were going your way in this situation, what would be the ideal experience for you?"
Most people cannot imagine the ideal because they have been programmed to believe that cannot happen for them.
Ask any one of my four children how much sympathy they have received from me when something is not going the way they want it to go. I am sure they would say very little.
It is common to hear around our house, when someone is complaining about their life not going well, the phrases: "Why are you creating that?" or "Why are you attracting that into your life? What do you have to learn from it?"
These phrases are often followed by, "What do you really want?" or, "If the ideal thing happened in this situation, what would that look like?" "You can create anything you want; what do you want to happen?"
You know you've taught your children well when you are telling your 11-year-old to stop whining and complaining and he looks at you and says, "Why are you creating me to be this way?" The only problem with not joining your children in their pity parties is that they hold you accountable, too, and refuse to join yours.
Take the power of your mind, the power of your thoughts, and start creating the life you really want. Catch yourself thinking the worst and ask yourself in that moment, "If I could have anything I want in this situation, what would that look like?"
If your will is aligned with God's will and you really believe you deserve it, and believe it can happen, it will. If you doubt it, question it, or keep your attention on what has still not happened for you, it will kink up the energy and you will not receive it.
Become the deliberate creator of your life. Anticipate your future, one second ahead or one year ahead, and be as specific and deliberate as it is possible to be and still feel good. Take time every day to identify your dominant intentions free of worrying about how they're going to show up.
When you ask the powers of heaven to work in your behalf and to take care of the details, they will produce for you what you have asked for.Carol Tuttle is a Master Energy Therapist, a highly sought after speaker, and best-selling author.
