“You need to learn how to select your thoughts just the same way you select your clothes every day. This is a power you can cultivate.” Elizabeth Gilbert.
Unfortunately this will all depend on what your beliefs are. If you believe it is going to be easy to change your thought patterns, it will. If you think it is too hard because you’ve tried in the past and it hasn’t worked, or you’re older and you think ‘you can’t teach an old dog new tricks,’ or you have a belief that everything in life is hard, a struggle, then that is what it will be. The more scientific research they are doing on this concept, the more they are backing up the old quote, “We are what we think.” So what are you thinking as you read this? Whether you agree and believe this to be true or not, science has proven that every thought, feeling or belief you have has a certain frequency that you are putting out into the universe.
What if you were to suspend the scepticism for a while and start being more aware of the thoughts you are having, and whether they are disempowering or empowering. If disempowering, you will probably want to consider changing them to thoughts that are more empowering. I have talked before about the power of gratitude and forgiveness having the power to raise the vibration that is going out into the ether. However our unconscious or subconscious minds are running the show. 90% of decisions made in our lives originate in the subconscious. Do you know what your beliefs are that have been lurking below the surface for most of your life? Sometimes we need a process or help to unearth those, so that they don’t win the battle over the conscious mind that says, “I am choosing different thoughts today!”
Enjoy the journey becoming more conscious of those hidden drivers!
