‘Thought is incipient action. The reaction is the response from your subconscious mind that corresponds to the nature of your thought. Fill your mind with concepts of harmony, health, peace and goodwill, and wonders will happen in your life.’
The Inner Skeptic
- Changing your thoughts won’t work unless you believe. If you’ve been struggling to change your life then this might well be the key. You must deny your conditioning. In time, science will catch up with spirituality and somebody will be able to measure the correlation between our thoughts and our lives, but for now you will have to rely on faith. Don’t be a skeptic like me. There is already some evidence to suggest that in our purest form we are energy subject to the vibration of our consciousness. Focus on this and not the apparent immovability of the ‘reality’ around you.
- Get excited. This is a sure sign that you are going to be successful at changing your life through changing your thoughts. You’re in possession of life’s golden ticket. Display an emotional response that corresponds to such a HUGE blessing. If you’re struggling with this, ask yourself how you would feel if you won the lottery tomorrow. Overjoyed? Excited? Thankful? Learning that you can change your life through changing your thoughts is bigger than winning the lottery. So get excited, remind yourself daily of what a fantastic discovery you’ve made and go out and live your life with the kind of energy that will manifest your dreams.
- Detach your thoughts from the world around you. This is the hardest part for so many people. When you’re living in far from ideal circumstances, it can be so difficult to detach yourself from your reality and find a way to feel inspired. It takes a lot of discipline and practice. But above all, you must never let your failures make you believe that the principle doesn’t work. Your thoughts will still be shaping your reality, whether you channel them yourself, or allow your environment to take control.
