For over a decade now, I have been working with clients who want to master and gain control of their thoughts! This is a big topic, and we may have to break it up into smaller chunks in order to truly get to the root of it all, but I want to start with a few questions:
- Do you believe that you can control your thoughts? (I have argued this point with many a person…but I believe that you absolutely CAN control your thoughts. We’ll get back to this in a minute.)
- Have you ever experienced a shift in your physical body while experiencing a vivid thought?
- From where are we perceiving these thoughts?
First, we have the physical realm. Our bodies, our appearance, our physical form...
Next, we have the mental realm. Our mind, thoughts, imagination...
Third, we have the spiritual realm. Our soul, our essence, our conscious awareness...
Many of my clients confuse the essence of who they are with their mind. So, let’s get one thing clear – YOU ARE NOT YOUR THOUGHTS!
I like to think of the mind as a TOOL – an amazing gift that allows us to process information, problem solve, imagine, escape…but just like any power tool, there has to be someone in the driver’s seat operating it!
In today’s world, we have basically let the tool become the operator – our minds keeping us busy, pre-occcupied, disconnected from both source and from the physical!
The mind is processing the past or the future. It is never wholly in the present while active. It is what pulls us out of alignment. Depending up what your mind is doing, our physical bodies will react accordingly. It has been scientifically proven that our body/brain cannot distinguish between something that is actually happening and a thought. Thoughts can trigger emotion and physical reactions.
Please watch the video above to participate in a thought experiment where we actively control where out minds are and what we're looking at. It is pretty cool when you realize that you actually CAN control what you're thinking about! I also discuss the idea of perception - how are we witnessing our thoughts?
Once you can gain awareness of your thoughts, your life will shift and that is where the magic begins! Join me!
