FOCUS ON THE OUTCOME YOU WANT TO CREATE
Written By: Sue Sexton MA Licensed Psychologist
Thoughts Matter because Matter is Created from Thoughts. In simpler terms, everything begins with a thought. It's that energy that forms into words that are spoken, actions that are taken, habits that are formed which develops into your character or sense of identity, which in the long run creates your FUTURE LIFE. So, you might wonder WHY this matters for you?
I personally witness in humanity that people THINK pretty negatively. In addition, there is a lot of hardship in our day to day world. People are hurting each other. When we witness these horrible acts unfolding, it's easy to become activated into emotion and desire to take action. This is where it's important to CHOOSE your THOUGHTS, first and foremost. Because your thoughts pave the next steps for your journey ahead.
In fact, many of our current activism efforts are focusing thoughts on entirely the wrong things! Yikes, right?
As Dr. Wayne Dyer clearly stated "Where our thoughts go, our energy flows". So, as an example, while having good intentions, groups that fight for "gun violence, school shootings, or misogyny" to STOP, they may actually be creating MORE of exactly what they don't want. Double Yikes, right?
Why is this? Well, the energy we put into our thoughts and words, reverberates into a CREATION energy. We create what we think. So if we say "no more gun violence", the universe unfortunately doesn't hear the "no" part and instead processes "more gun violence". Triple Yikes! The universe does not respond to negatives. If you think over and over "please don't die" to your elderly grandparent, they are actually more likely to die than if you thought "please live".
Within humanity, we have to be careful of our words. Positive words matter. Focusing on WHAT YOU WANT TO CREATE vs. what you don't want to create, matters. Thoughts matter because matter is created from thoughts. Choose wisely.
