There is no such thing as an idle thought. Every thought is affecting not only every cell in our bodies, but also every part of our lives.
A shift in thought can shift your life.
For many of us, we grow up and the most important thing is who we are going to be when we grow up. Then we focus on doing all these things in order to have the stuff that someone who is like who we want to be would have. Unfortunately for many of us, we focus more on the having than the being. We are designed as human beings, and when we lose sight of that and begin to do things in order to have things, we lose sight of why we are here. Don’t wait to find your purpose…define… Read more.
Thoughts draw unto themselves the likeness of their form. We have the power by our Word to form all that we wish to create or mis-create.
The moment you fully realize the incredible power you have over your thoughts and emotions, not only will you be literally astounded, but you will wonder why you took so long to use it and create sustainable and lasting happiness in your life!
You are not diminished by your pain. Your spirituality is not measured by the presence or absence of difficulty in your life. Challenge is not a punishment or a reward. It is not a reflection of your value to the world; it is a reflection of your choice to grow and learn and make mistakes. Although your thoughts and attitudes attract and create your life, you are not your thoughts. “Your thoughts control your experience of reality. But your thoughts cannot affect, or change, or control, or even touch who you are.”~ Paul Williams, Remember Your Essence Remembering your essence will… Read more.
Sometimes life is hard but it can still be filled with joy and happiness. You may not always get what you think you want, but when you grow older and look back on your life, you will see that you got what you needed. The pieces will begin to slip together in an awe-inspiring manner. While we all strive to find happiness, we must also accept that there is a natural ebb and flow to it and that when we experience hard times, those trials allow us to experience more profound joy. We cannot have one without the other, so… Read more.
Realistic, empowered thinking is the key to all success.
Whatever you think you are, you are more than that.
It’s not what you think – it’s what you feel.
Treat today like it was tomorrow. Think about what you want for tomorrow and manifest it today. No excuses… just live your dream now!
Too much thinking leads to more confusion. Trust your gut, it’s more succinct.
It’s not knowing that you can do it… it’s knowing how. The science of Consciousness is the newly discovered key. Thought manipulates reality!
Never let your body trick you: you make the thoughts that create the feelings.
The moment you begin to think like a winner then you will become one.
If you watch your mind, you will see that it goes into the past or future all day long. It especially loves to go into the future and when it really gets activated, it moves from a whole different place. It will convince you that that you can’t do it right, or you can’t do it at all, or something bad is going to happen, and the thoughts go on and on. These thoughts are just not true because we don’t know what is going to happen. All we have is this present moment, but you can begin to see… Read more.
Whatever the nature of our problems and difficulties, there is hope for us. No matter how much we feel unhappy, discouraged, and hopeless at the present time, happiness is still within reach. Feeling better, getting better, and staying better is an attainable goal for each and everyone of us. What is important to understand is that happiness is purely internal. It is not something that happens to us, but rather something we ourselves do and determine. You and I relate to everything and everyone on this planet through the mechanism of thought. It is not what is in the world… Read more.
It is so true that until you walk a mile in someone’s shoes, you have no idea what it’s like. You can hypothesize and surmise, but you really have no idea. Even when that “someone” is you. It’s easy to say what you “would” or “wouldn’t” do in a situation prior to living it. But the truth is, you haven’t a clue. Until we are faced with a situation, there isn’t a way to fully understand how it feels for all the senses and all the emotions that arise. We often surprise ourselves with our reactions to occurrences in our lives…. Read more.
