So today’s post is all about ‘The Power of the Mind’. I’m going to be discussing how powerful the mind is when wanting to achieve your goals and better your successes. I hope you lovelies enjoy!
Whatever you desire, you can achieve it using MIND POWER.
Basically guys, all physical reality is made up of vibrations of energy, even your thoughts are vibrations of energy. Your thoughts have an incredible influence on your life and how you live it. Sounds pretty basic right?
Your thoughts affect what happens to you. Most of us go through life taking little notice of our thought processes: how the mind thinks, what it fears, what it says to itself and what it pushes to one side. We usually go about our lives with minimal attention to what we think, usually neglecting one of the most important and powerful forces in our life: our thoughts.
What you focus on, you attract…
Mind power is directing your thoughts towards a desired outcome. Focus on success and you attract success.Focus of failure and fear and you attract failure. Mind power is all about understanding these principles and making our thoughts work for us. If you use your thoughts consciously you will awaken a whole new life of power and opportunity.
In order to make changes in our lives, we need to change the way we use our mind. We cannot use both positive and negative thoughts at the same time as one always overpowers the other.
To change the external, you must change the internal.
A lot of people usually forget this step and try to change the external conditions by working directly on the condition but most of the time this proves to be a temporary fix, unless it is accompanied by a change of thoughts and beliefs.
If you train your conscious mind to think thoughts of success, happiness and prosperity this will help you learn to ween out negativity such as fear and worry. Trying to keep the mind busy with the expectation of the best will help better your lifestyle.
So what about the subconscious mind?
Your subconscious mind is your partner in success so get it working for you!
The subconscious mind is a second, almost hidden mind that exists within you. It’s main goal is to attract circumstances and situations that match the images you have within. Thinking of it visually, it’s a little bit like fertile soil which will grow anything you plant within it. Your thoughts and beliefs are seeds that are being constantly sown.
It’s your responsibility to be aware of how this process works and carefully selecting what reaches your subconscious. For a lot of us, this process hasn’t been explained and therefore results in allowing all thoughts, good and bad, to reach the subconscious.
Your subconscious accepts what is impressed upon it with feeling and repetition, whether these thoughts are positive or negative. It does not evaluate things like your conscious mind does. This is why it is so important to be aware of what you are thinking.
Once you are able to input positivity and images of what you want into your subconscious, ‘chance-events’ will start happening to you. To a lot of people, this is what is known as a coincidence or good luck. Instead, it is literally the forces that YOU have set in motion with your thoughts.
Get on top of life with creative visualisations!
So how can we use this reality in our lives? By focusing daily on what you desire. The mind power system consists of easily learned techniques that will help you focus and direct your thoughts. One that is really important to myself is visualisation.
Visualisation is all about creating a mental image of what you actually want. When you repeat these images over and over, and see success in whatever goal you may have then the mind uses its power so you’re more likely to achieve these goals.
The key to visualising is to always visualise that you already have what you desire. This is a mental trick. Rather than hoping you will achieve it, or building confidence that one day it will happen, live and feel it as if it is happening to you now.
Focus and direct your thoughts and amazing things will happen.
Another powerful way of taking control over the subconscious mind is to use affirmations. By doing this, you affirm to yourself whatever it is that you desire. For example, if you have an important interview coming up, you could affirm to yourself that you will have “a great interview”. So instead of the mind seeing success, it hears success and reacts to influence your thoughts.
When I make affirmations I always make sure that they are positive and that I don’t doubt myself. It is always important to keep it short and simple so that you can repeat it without even thinking. Also, I feel that you don’t have to force yourself to believe it. Just say it and it will naturally have an effect on you.
Eliminate negative thinking
Worry, fear, and negative thinking allow the mind to focus on things you don’t want. Train your mind to think about what you want in life, and avoid thinking about what you don’t want. Negative thinking drains your energy and is counterproductive; that is why fear is so destructive and why despair and hopelessness must be avoided. In a way, this is the key to success.
So how do we eliminate this negative thinking? The first step is to recognise the importance of eliminating negative thoughts, and the second step is to be aware when negatives are happening to us. An important thing to remember is that you can’t avoid negative thinking entirely. Sometimes negative thoughts just pop into our mind but when this happens it helps to be aware, so that we immediately recognise when we are thinking negatively. There are many ways of minimising the effects of negative thoughts:
- Changing the negative thought into a positive one e.g. if you are worried about what could go wrong in a situation, think about what could go right.
- Reminding yourself that a negative thought is just a negative thought and it has no power unless you give it power.
The key to all of this is consistency with whatever you practise and self belief that you can do it. I think it’s important to understand that the mind controls an awful lot of us and we can work with it to get a positive outcome.
I really hope you guys enjoyed this post. Let me know your thoughts below.
