WHAT'S ON YOUR MIND?

My Thoughts Manifest

9 comments | May 10th, 2012

(Story by ERF, a Chestist)

Our thoughts make our world, I've always believed this.  I think I read online recently that worrying is like praying for something bad to happen and it really resonated for me.  I've been making it a habit to focus my mind as I get in bed at night on how grateful I am, on all the things and people I have to appreciate, and to set an intention for peace of mind, and an abudance of health, wealth, and happiness.  I don't know if I can actually manifest these thoughts but it's a nice way to end a day even if not. (end story}

What do you guys think?  How does (or can) what you think affect how you feel and what you do and can become?  Do you ever set intentions for yourself, your day, or anything?

(P.S. we decided to illustrate this story with astronauts, as an ode to the intention set by President Kennedy when he said "we will put a man on the moon in the next decade."  Turns out we did)

    I fully believe that we can manifest our thoughts. That’s not saying if I think “today I will win the lottery” that I will but I do believe that we put energy out into the world with our thinking and it comes back to us for good and not.

      YESTERDAY, I was sending someone a text and asked about a friend of ours I hadn’t seen in a while. 2 minutes later I looked up and there he was, standing in front of me in the most random of places.

      I don’t think there’s are coincidences.

    Years ago, a close, close friend was very sick with Cancer. Ultimately, she’d die because of it. I remember when she would cough and say “oh, excuse me, that’s just me dying a little bit more quickly” and I would get so upset that she would put negative words out there like that. It is not that I didn’t understand that she had negative thoughts, fear and all of it. I just didn’t think she was helping herself by letting them out inot the world since that just made them more real.

    I miss her terribly.

    What we put out into the universe lives there. Energy matters and so do intentions.

    My mother always talks about the power of positive thinking and I grew up around it. It’s become a cornerstone belief and one I think is a key to living a life you love.

    I think those are scuba divers in the illustration, not astronauts.
    Like the Kennedy tie-in, though.

    I am always looking for the positive side of things. I actually thinks it stems from my discomfort with unhappiness. I reeeeeeally don’t like feeling blue, so i fight against it and look for the upside. Maybe the reason i do it isn’t that healthy, but i like the outcome.

    It’s hard sometimes for me to stay positive, and because of it I sometimes have trouble falling asleep. In fact, I have had trouble falling asleep since I was a kid, and I’m now in my 30s! All that is to say, I finally found a way to get to sleep just a couple of weeks ago, and what it involves is imagining myself taking all the negative thoughts physically out of my body and setting them to the side. If I could suddenly learn to fall asleep by picturing negativity leaving me, that to me is proof that thoughts are things.
