We all have the ability to think, some of us think more than others, but in general our thought processes are similar. If I think about a city I have visited for instance. I will picture the landmarks I have visited, I will remember, often with feelings attached if I was sad or happy. Sometimes I can see and feel in my mind a scene clearly, sometimes it becomes hazy and it is more thought and memory than pictures. I am sure you all have various ways of picturing things in your mind. You may picture and even taste in your mind what you are thinking of having for dinner. Or you may think about the play you are going to see at the theatre that evening, picturing the theatre in your mind, or you will guess what the characters will be like, just the same way you create a character from a book in your mind.
We all think and we all imagine a multitude of things virtually all day long, day in day out. So you should be fairly familiar with the thought process your mind goes through. Yet do you really understand how powerful your thoughts can be! If you think about someone who has done you wrong, besides thinking you can often start feeling, it can feel like you have been kicked in the teeth again, especially if this person has upset you in the past. The same can work in reverse, if someone has been kind to you, a feeling of warmth can follow the thought of them in your mind. So on a basic level thought effects how you feel, whether that brings good, bad or indifferent feelings, it depends on the positivity or negativity attached to the memory.
We have gathered that thoughts can carry feelings with them, yet this is a thought that has not left our mind, it is connected hard wired in a sense to our body. The question is, can a similar thought be carried through the air, for someone else to feel and think it? Or could your thinking change your life or things that will happen in the future?
Technology shows us that this is possible, a few hundred years ago it was impossible to communicate with someone at a distance, you could not speak to someone in the same town let alone at vast distances. Yet today this is possible. I am communicating my thoughts to you at a distance, that was never thought possible. You could be reading these words ten minutes after I have finished writing them. Hundreds of years ago, you would of had to wait weeks for a letter to be delivered within the same country or abroad. Just because something seems impossible, it does not mean there is not a law of nature that can make it possible.
Let us come from another angle, imagine tonight that you have a dream about me and in the dream I am imparting some information that will be helpful for you. I have come across vast distances to deliver a message, a message that gives you insight into a situation that has been worrying you. We all know this is possible as we have all had dreams about varying people including friends, relatives and celebrities. Anyone can appear in your dream. Even people you had never heard of. I once had a dream about Jim Reeves the singer. He told me in the dream he was going around the world helping people, he had died many years before my dream, so it looked like he was doing this from the spirit world. The next day I searched the internet for his picture, and it was the same guy as in my dream. I had never seen an image of him before, nor had I any interest in his life while he was alive.
If that is possible in a dream, what is stopping that happening while you are awake, we have all day dreamed at some time in our life, we all have the ability to switch off from what is happening around us and see instead a vision of a story being played out within our mind. If I visualise something I bring it to life within my mind, it is reality to me at that moment, as I see it, yes it might only be a temporary reality as it will fade when my mind loses focus, but what if my mind does not lose focus, what if my mind feeds the thought as you would do a seed. If I show the thought my attention as much as a seed, it will grow, bigger and bigger and more life like. Until my thought flowers into reality, just as the seed would with the warmth of the sun and the life giving nutrient we know as water.
Your thoughts are powerful, you can bring them to life, all you need is a change of focus, remember thoughts carry feelings, if the thought in your mind carried love or positivity instead of negativity, can you imagine the difference that would have on your life! Do you believe in the power of thought?
