Your Thoughts Have Power

“If you realized how powerful your thoughts are, you would never think a negative thought.”

Peace Pilgrim

This much is true… your thoughts carry more power than you will ever comprehend.  Thoughts are the first step of creation.  Your thoughts are like seeds that your mind sends out into the universe through vibrations.  As you focus more on the same thought over and over again, a shift towards that thought begins and it can manifest into your physical reality.  It is important to think wisely because everything you are experiencing now is a result of your thoughts in the past.  Negative energy attracts negative energy, as positive energy attracts positive energy.  So if you think you are a loser, you become that.  If you think you are successful (or at least heading in the right direction to be successful) you become that.

Change your Thoughts and You Will Change Your Life

The mind is a powerful super computer and you are the programmer.  It is important to know a few things about the mind.  Like a computer you purchase, it comes with some useless software that was installed on it from the factory.  If you want to erase the stuff that has no value to you, there is nothing stopping you from doing that.  As a matter of fact, that’s an excellent idea!  Most of us don’t realize that every behavior pattern we display, everything from our system of values and morals to our religious beliefs were pre-programmed into our minds before we reached our sixth birthday.  We just keep going through life with all that data running in the subconscious part of our mind…which by the way is where most of our life changing decisions are made.

Using the Power of Thoughts

Some say that you can’t control your thoughts.  I will admit it is not easy, but with practice it can be done.  Everything in life requires practice to become easy.  Look at some of the guitar gods that make playing that instrument look effortless.  To them it is easy, but unless you have invested the time to learn how to play on their level you will never see what they can do as anything less than amazing.  I have invested tens of thousands of hours in my years of playing the guitar and I see what they do as not-so-easy.

The trick to controlling your thoughts is to change them.  When you feel a negative thought in your mind, change it to a positive one.  Think of something funny…like a fart, then laugh.  Laughter is the best medicine for your mind.  If you can laugh at the things that normally make you angry, you will change your life.  As a professional musician, I learned early to perfect my mistakes.  If I make one on a stage, keep playing and pretend I just farted in a crowded elevator.  If you make one…SO WHAT.  Own it, but keep playing.
