Be Aware of that Power
Your thoughts influence the direction your life takes and sometimes in the opposite way you may be expecting so be mindful and careful of what you think about most.
There are two ways I’ve learned that your thoughts can manifest in your life:
- Thinking thoughts of hate towards another befits the quote below and can effectively end up being your fate instead of the object of your dislike. It’s what you give the most thought and energy to that manifests in your life so it’s very important to be mindful of what your thoughts are. In the event that someone does you wrong then trust that the Universe enacts whatever karma is appropriate when the time is right and the karmic lesson is most likely to be effective. If you are the one that has misconceived another then know that your karmic lesson will come at the time you are most open to understanding and learning it. Karma is not meant to hurt or destroy but rather teach and it is only when you are mindfully open that you will be able to receive the higher learning so you can personally grow.
- Alternatively thinking about something you want and wishing for the shortcut without consequence to how it may arrive can manifest in the worst way. For instance you could wish for a big sum of money to arrive and the next day find that a member of your family passed and left that sum of money for you but notice the price? Not every idea or quick shortcut in life is always a good one. My personal example that taught me this exact lesson on shortcuts came 3 days before my daughter was born very premature (3 ½ months to be exact). I saw a show on T.V. that was something out of the future I guess where a doctor was experimenting with re-creating the environment of the mother’s womb so he could watch and note all stages of development of babies prior to being born. It was like a test-tube baby idea but a larger version. The day after seeing this show I was at work, knowing how terrible my morning or shall I say all day sickness seemed be which wasn’t showing any signs of leaving as I approached 6 months of pregnancy and I told a co-worker about this show I saw and said “I wouldn’t mind that since I feel so nauseous all day long” and 3 days later my water broke.
I know now that my words didn’t actually affect what had transpired and that it was just part of the bigger picture but the experience of my daughter being born early and the challenges she and I have gone through together since have brought so much more to my life than I would have experienced had it not all occurred this way but at the time it scared me so much that it taught me to be more aware and cautious with my thoughts.
With the knowledge I’ve gained now I believe it was more signs and intuition to prepare me for what was coming and even though we don’t all know what is around the corner we all have some intuition (our inner voice) to help guide and ease us into times that may be difficult.
Even though I know that this experience wasn’t meant as “teaching me a lesson” or some sort of “karmic payback” for my thoughts I still think it’s an important example to express how much power lies with our thoughts whether they are conscious, subconscious, silly or hateful.
Thoughts are power! You have more power than you may realize with them and I used the power in my thoughts to help direct and focus on empowering the strength I knew my daughter had in her which I know helped her blast through the bleak outlook the doctors had advised. Obviously when babies are born too early they aren’t as strong and healthy as when born full-term so she needed all the extra powerful thoughts I and everyone else in her family could put forth for her.
With your thoughts you can change anything and when enforced with your will that there can be no other outcome there is no way any other alternative can manifest.
Know and Believe your thoughts are very powerful!
