Be Energized With The Power Of Positive Thinking Part 3

Unlocking The Conscious And Unconscious Mind

How do you take your brain off its default system and use it to create miracles, magic and some really amazing opportunities in your life? Your brain is a powerful force indeed and when you learn how to control it you will be amazed at what you can actually achieve.

According to Earl Nightingale, “Whatever we plant in our subconscious mind and nourish with repetition and emotion will one day become a reality.”

This is the key to a world where you can use the subconscious mind to better your life and become all that you were meant to be.. The subconscious is active all of time yet most of us don’t have any clue as to how to tap into the sheer power it possesses. .

We think a little positive thinking will go a long way but that is only have the battle. The idea is to reprogram the mind to change what needs to change and benefit from the reprogramming. The subconscious learns through constant repetition to make things a habit. That habit drives you wherever you go and whatever you do.

The Struggle Between The Conscious and The Subconscious Mind

How do you create a life full of miracles, magic and amazing opportunities?

Inside your brain stem is something called the Reticular Activating System or RAS which is considered to be the gatekeeper that screens out data that the brain deems unimportant or not worthy enough to follow from your environment.

RAS is one of the most powerful forces known to man. According to Kris Hallbom and Tim Hallbom, “All of your future goals and dreams are not only a reflection of your subconscious thinking but they are also mediated by your Reticular Activating System (RAS). The RAS is the part of your brain that serves as a filter between your conscious mind and your subconscious mind. The RAS, which is located in the core of your brain stem, takes instructions from your conscious mind, and passes them on to your subconscious mind.”

Its main function is to process information that comes through. It can only process 147 bits of information at any one time therefore, it only lets in information that is relevant and important. Everything else is screened out. When you feel overloaded, your mind cannot process any information at all. It’s like a computer without enough memory. It slows down and cannot function properly.

Your brain focuses on the things it says are important and relevant to your survival and well-being but you can learn to control the RAS to better equip yourself in life. In Annie Grace’s well-written article entitled, “Liminal Thinking: The Key to Unlocking Your Unconscious Mind” she states, “Your unconscious mind is responsible for your desires. We don’t think about the distinction between our conscious and unconscious thoughts, but that distinction is vital to realizing why we continue to do things we vowed to stop. Studies confirm we have two separate thinking systems—the conscious and unconscious. The give-and-take between unconscious choices and our rational, conscious goals helps explain why we continue to do things we no longer desire to do.”

How does your brain decide what is important and relevant to you?

It does this by assessing the external environment against what is contained in your long-term memory. This included your core beliefs, experiences, values and conditioning. This is what is considered your default system. If you choose to believe something is impossible despite it existing for real, you will not see it. It will become
impervious to your field of vision. This is why beliefs must change as part of the reprogramming effort. It must fall in line with what you want to change as long as it is part of the authentic you.

You have the power to override this default system with your thinking part of the brain which is known as the frontal lobe. It is a simple as choosing to put all your focus and attention on what you want because what you put your focus on what you find.

Quantum physics has proven this model to be true. It states that in any point in time, all possibilities exist and the moment we focus on one thing, the rest drop out of existence. But when we alter our focus, the possibilities change in our mind and we lose track of what we’re doing.

Here are two good examples of that model:

  • Finding a parking space for your car – Ever tried to find a parking space for your car and got really frustrated when you couldn’t. Everything changed when you put your focus on getting the parking space. You convinced yourself it was opening up and boom, a spot became available. When this becomes a habit, it gets easier every time to get a parking space. It is not a game of chance but RAS working in your favor. When you focus and believe, your brain kicks into gear and your RAS is activated to see opportunities for parking spaces.
  • Noticing things you never noticed before – Returning to the idea of cars, ever decided you wanted to buy a new car but didn’t know which one to buy? You happen to see one in the paper or on a commercial and all of the sudden you see them everywhere? Before they weren’t on your radar but
    your brain now has been activated to see them. Even though they were always there only now has your RAS been activated to notice them.

How Does The Brain Activate RAS?

The RAS works on both a conscious and unconscious level. At any given time we are bombarded by 2 million bits of information but the brain cannot process all this data at once. Instead, we observe things at an unconscious level happening all around us so that we can focus on what we feel is important. That is when RAS kicks into overdrive and starts doing its magic.

The brain has the capacity to see the smallest things once you put your mind’s focus upon them. You cannot do or find things if you don’t believe in yourself. This is the whole point of positive thinking. Activating RAS based on the belief that you can and you will! That is how great things happen and how feats that once were thought to be impossible become the norm.

To most people, this seems like pure magic or sleight-of-hand but it isn’t. It is what your brain was built to do. RAS was put there for our most basic of instincts, to find food, water and protect us for survival. As humans evolved, our brains grew and we learned coping mechanisms that helped us survive. What we learned to focus on helped us evolve into the beings we are today.

How Are You Using Your RAS?

Are you living on automatic pilot and letting your conditioned brain dictate what you see and don’t see? Or, are you taking matters into your own hands and focusing on the things you really want? Positive thinking will get you there if you allow your RAS to be activated to do its job.

Have you ever focused on other people’s faults and weaknesses?

The more you focus on their faults and weaknesses the more you see them. The same goes for your own faults and weaknesses. Start focusing on your strengths and good points and let RAS work for you instead of against you. No one is perfect but focusing too much on the negative side of things hurts your potential and keeps you from pursuing your greater self. This is the self God created you to be. It’s not about being weak but gaining strength. Strength to carry on, believing in one’s sel, and learning from our mistakes. That’s where positive thinking gives us the edge.

What you focus upon you will definitely find. When you focus on new ideas do you focus on whether other’s will like it or hate it. Whatever you focus on will happen. Positive thinking gets you past the gatekeeper and puts you on the pathway to success. Whatever you focus on will ultimately happen whether you like it or not. You must focus on the positive for positive things to happen.

What you focus on becomes your perception. You miss things you don’t focus upon. Life is filled with both good and bad so what you focus on you’ll receive as well as see and react to.

All possibilities exist in the universe. You decide where you choose to put your focus on and attention on as it will decide the difference between an expansive life of amazing miracles and great opportunities or a life filled with drama, excuses and limitations.

What will you choose?

This is amazing stuff isn’t it? The more you learn the secrets of positive thinking the more you will become the person of your dreams. Implement these strategies and see how much better your life becomes!

Why Self Talk Creates Reality

Don’t let the title fool you. This is one of the most important lectures you will ever listen too. The concepts in this lecture changed my life as well as how I think. I don’t normally jump on the bandwagon with everyone else but Neville Goddard makes too much sense to be ignored. This is how the most successful people become successful and realize their vast potential.

How Our Inner Conversation Dictates Our Reality

We all talk to ourselves at one time or another and it’s something we must do but the most important part of our inner talk is controlling the nature and direction of this inner conversation. If we let our inner conversation take over we are at its mercy.

Most of us are unaware that this inner conversation we have is the main cause of all the circumstances in our lives. We are told that “As a man thinketh in his heart so is he.” This means that thinking follows the tracks laid down in our own inner conversations. These tracks direct the actions in our lives and if we fail to control them we end up unhappy, unsuccessful and full of regret. This is where most people are at in their lives. Change comes when you conquer you self talk.

In order to turn those tracks in the direction you want to go, you must put off that nagging voice that wants you to fail and renew the spirit of your mind. This spirit is your speech which is the image of the mind. Therefore, in order to change your mind, you must first change your speech. This means, change those
conversations you carry on with yourself.

The world is a magic circle made up of infinite possibilities and mental transformations which means there are an infinite number of possible mental conversations you can have. Learn to dial in those that are positive and uplifting .

When you discover the creative power of inner talking, you will realize your function and mission in life. Then you can act with a purpose but without this knowledge you will act unconsciously. It is there where you lose control. Which pathway you takes depends on who you believe, who you listen to, and where it takes you. The power of choice is at your command.

Everything is a manifestation of the mental conversations which go on inside us without our being aware of them. It is your duty as a civilized being to be aware of them and act with a focused purpose. That purposed must be aligned with who you are as a person and what you believe in. The more you follow others the more your pathway becomes littered with bad decisions and unguided negative thoughts.

Your mental conversations attract what you get in life as long as there is no change in your inner talking. This is why your personal history remains the same. You’re stuck without a map to show you the way. To attempt to change the world before you change your inner conversations is the reason why you struggle so much as it goes against the very nature of things. You will just go round and round, having the same disappointments in life and being unhappy with your state of circumstances.

The Consequences Of Negative Inner Thinking

When you blame others for your disappointments you cannot see  it is your own negative inner thinking that is causing you pain. Change your inner thinking and see the thoughts for what they are doing to you. The more you allow negative thoughts and conversation to rule your mind the more unpleasant your life becomes.

Do you know what conversations are going on in your own mind? What mysterious track are you walking down? You must begin to take life consciously for the solutions to all your problems lie squarely in your own inner self talk.

You are to become master of your own words, master of your own inner thinking for we imitate the Heavenly Father by molding ourselves into the likeness of the kingdom of love. Master unconditional love and you master control of your own actions as they are guided by love not selfishness.

We have been told to be “Imitators of God as their children” but how can you imitate God? God has called things that are unseen as though they are seen and the unseen become seen. Your eyes deceive you but your faith won’t allow God to be your eyes and ears so that you can follow the path way to His love.

Your inner conversations represent the world you live in. Your individual world is a self-revelation of your own inner speech. You have been told that every idle word that men speak we will give an account of for by your words you will be justified as well as condemned. What world do you want to be a part of? The world at large or God’s kingdom? Whatever you choose, be prepared for its consequences for you are what you think.

We abandon ourselves to negative inner talking yet we expect to retain command of our own lives. Our present mental conversations do not recede into the past as you believe but advance into the future to confront us as wasted or invested words. What you say, feel or think has consequences on your future self. Are you
making it easier or harder to reach your potential by the quality of your inner self-talk?

God tells us that His words will not return unto Him void but it shall accomplish which He intends to happen. And it will prosper everywhere that he sends it. How are you sending your words out into the world? Are your words sending a loving communion of gratitude and care populated with loving thoughts and feelings that return to you prospering where you send them?

Most of us rob others of their willingness and ability to be kind and generous towards them. Our attitudes unfold within us in the form of our mental conversations. These conversations tell us what to do in any given situation and steer us in a direction they want to take us. Your control is either in your hands or your unconscious thought. Take control back and be the person you want to be. Let your inner conversation take you down the path of righteousness and love not selfishness and greed.

Now is the time for solutions. Now is the only time that counts. Don’t worry about the past or what might happen in the future. Even though its effects may not be visible until later on, you have the ability to make those inner thoughts and conversations create the events and relationships of life all based on your word.

How To Consciously Create Positive Circumstances

How do you consciously create your positive circumstances? By allowing your inner conversations to continually see what is happening all around you. What you see and hear consciously we must see and hear unconsciously. The whole manifested world shows us what use we have made of our words. Are those words acting on your behalf or against you as if in a court of law?

If you practice the art of controlled inner speaking, you will know what God has done for you. You will see what has come to pass. You will be able to consciously use your imagination to transform and channel the immense creative energies of your inner speech from a mental and emotional level to a physical one
as well which has no limits of its own. Without worldly limits, we can see what God has in store for us and act upon it with a loving heart.

What is your aim in life? Does your inner talking match it? What you desire to see and hear without, you must see and hear within. Whatever your goals in life are they must match what your inner speech is saying or conflict will occur. When they are in harmony you will see great things happen.

Every stage of your progress is made by the conscious exercise of your imagination which matches your inner speech and lends itself to your fulfilled desires. When you control your inner thinking and match it to your fulfilled desires, you can lay aside all other processes and act by clear imagination and intention. God will is then easy to follow and even easier to achieve.

The right inner speech for you is the speech that is onlye yours for you to realize your ideals. It is the speech of fulfilled desire. That desire comes from the gifts given to us by God. Those gifts are mind and speech. They are equivalent to being immortal as they will live on forever.

With the gift of mind and speech you create the conditions and circumstances of your life. In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God. The Word is the Son and the mind is the Father. They are not separate. Life is the union of word and mind.

You and your inner talking must be together like the father and Son are. If your mind is one with your inner conversation then what needs to be transformed in the mind needs to be transformed in the conversation and then manifested in life. There is no other way for this to happen.

Why Corruption Of The Mind Changes Our Inner Reality

Stay away from corruption of the mind and be renewed in the spirit of God. Change your inner conversations so that speech and mind become one with each other. Make sure they reflect what the Father and Son both say and believe. Conflict is the devil’s way of putting a wall between us and God.

A change of speech is a change of mind. In 2 Samuel 23:2 it reads, “The Spirit of the LORD spoke through me; his word was on my tongue.” If the Lord’s word were on Samuel’s tongue then they were in his mind also. The same goes for us for our conversations originate in the mind and produce little speech movements in the tongue.

Samuel is telling us that the mouth of God is the mind of men. That our inner conversations are the word of God. Creating life about us as we create it in ourselves. If we do not attempt to create what God has formed in us then we stagnate to the point of going backwards. Those words must have meaning and reflect what God has given us.

God is always near to us and has set before us in our mouths and in our hearts both goodness and evil, love and hate, blessings and curses and life and death. It is your job to choose what is good and pure in the Lord as well as life. The conditions and circumstances of life are not created by some external force but by the result of
the exercise of your freedom of choice. Know what is good and pure and allow them to be your guide. Push evil away and don’t give in to its calling. It is only a fox in sheep’s clothing.

Your freedom of choice is the idea for which you will respond to. This is the day off salvation. Whatever is good to the Lord think of these things and take them for yourself for your future is formed by the will of God which is your present inner talking.

You create your future by your inner conversations. The words were formed by the will of God. If you want to reap success you must plant success. The idea in your mind which starts the process going is the idea which you accept as truth. Truth depends on the intensity of imagination not upon facts. Change your assumptions to guide the truth. Assumptions, through faults, if persisted, will harden into facts.

The mind always behaves according to the assumption for which it starts. Therefore, to experience success, you must assume that you are successful. It must be consciously and deliberately taken. It doesn’t matter if at the present time, external facts deny the truth of your assumption, because if you persist in your assumption, it will become the truth.

No matter what you believe, your beliefs take you where you want to go. Mind and speech need to be one. If you are positive it is much easier to make this a reality. The more negative you become, the less chance you have to make a difference in the world. Continue to grow, continue to believe and continue to be the person God wants you to be.

In Part 3, we will see how to use your brain to create miracles, magic and amazing opportunities for a better and happier life!

Be Energized With The Power Of Positive Thinking Part 1

The Power Of Positive Thinking

What can the power of positive thinking do for you? Just imagine all your hopes, all your dreams, and all your visions becoming a reality!

Most people live their lives in quiet desperation with negativity as their soulmate. You can’t have what you want if you are always pushing it away. Instead, it’s all about bringing the goodness and the love that is all around and living with a positive mindset.

You can accomplish everything you want but you have to take positive action on those positive thoughts. Nothing comes that easy but when you practice being and living a positive lifestyle, a whole new world opens up and you can bring happiness back into your life.

Many of the celebrities started out from the bottom and worked their way up. Nothing came easy but they believed in themselves and used positive thinking to get where they wanted to go.  They made their dreams a reality because it was real in their minds.

In this article, I’m going to help you get to where you want by teaching you how to have a positive mindset and how to take positive action to make your hopes and dreams a reality for you. The idea here is to access the power of positive thinking and begin to manifest the kind of life you’ve always imagined having. It’s sitting right in front of you but you have to be strong enough to take it.

Mind Control – The True Power Of Positive Thinking

For centuries, people have used the power of positive thinking to improve their lives, get what they want and make a big impact on the world. In this video, here are the reasons why controlling the thoughts you have can change your life for the better and harness the power of positive thinking.

According to Steve Maxwell, there are 17 ideas that govern mind control. He takes a stance on why fear and thought go hand in and how you can break them.

1- Fear in general is all a big lie. It’s something manufactured and you must look at fear from a different perspective. Fear has been given a power it was never meant to have. You must seize the power back and take a stance on where and how you deal with fear.

2- Fear has no control over you if you can control your thoughts. Control what comes in and how you perceive those thoughts. Control how you act on them as well as know where they are coming from. You biggest area of strength and power is awareness. The more aware of what your mind is doing, the easier it is to control those thoughts and actions.

3- Every thought that enters our minds doesn’t just come from us but outside stimulation. The collective outside is influencing what we think, what we feel and how we act. Understand this and give yourself the power to be yourself. You are an individual and the power that outside influences have need not apply if you live and exercise your right of free thought. Just because others think a certain way doesn’t mean they are right. You have freedom of choice make sure you use it.

4- The world is full of fear. Everyone is scared and paranoid at the next calamity or catastrophe about to happen. Terrorism, social media and mainstream media influence and touch those inner fears by scaring you with thoughts of loss… loss of your job, your freedoms, your rights and even your loved ones. The more you allow negative thoughts and negative vibrations to overtake your positive nature, the more fear will tighten its grip on you. The media loves to scare its citizens yet , if you understand why, then you don’t have to be fearful of anything anymore.

5- Stop thinking and listening to all these outside influences. They have no control over you unless you let them. Stop thinking of all the things you don’t want to happen and start concentrating on the good things, the positive things you want for yourself and your family. bad things happen when you set the table for them. Instead of fearing the future, embrace what you don’t know, see, hear or understand and let knowledge be both your guide and your teacher.This way, you will have nothing to fear.

6- Stop worrying as if worry will change your circumstances. Those negative thoughts will manifest themselves in our everyday lives with negative consequences. In Matthew 6:25-27, we see what worry will do for us. “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?” 

7- The idea is to concentrate on controlling what comes into your mind. If it is negative in origin, understand that it has no control over you and let it pass.

8- When you control your thoughts with positive energy, you can manifest anything you want. You need to learn how to harness that powerful bundle of energy. Why? Because the power of thought can take you anywhere you want to go. It is what success is built upon. It is how transformation happens. It is where you seperate the the doers from the talkers.

9- Positive thoughts have the capacity to bring good events and good circumstances as well as good people into our lives. You have the power to influence what happens to you by the power of your thoughts. Hope is based on positive thinking and positive reinforcement for each circumstance that happens. When you hope for the best, you are putting positive vibrations into the air. This why you can influence life and manifest anything you want if you live with positive energy.

10- For every negative thought, replace it with 2-3 positive thoughts. Overwhelm the negative thoughts until they can’t control you. The benefit comes in forming a good habit of always having positive thoughts. What is even better is using those positive thoughts and taking focused action that brings good things into your life. Overload and overwhelm the negative thoughts to such a degree that positivity rules the day.

11- It is the universal Law of Attraction. You attract the energy you put in. Einstein once said that energy cannot be created or destroyed. That is why you must control it so it works for you instead of against you. Attract good energy wherever you go. Get in the habit of attracting good things, good people and good situations into your life. Only then will success and happiness follow you through life.

12- Whatever you are thinking of or concentrating on is like putting in an order to the universe. With that thought you are asking for it to happen. The more negative it is, the worse the outcome and the more positive the thought is, the better the outcome. There is no such thing as a return with the universe. You get what you put into it so be wise and only put in positive energy. Remember, all that negative energy is like a huge weight that keeps getting heavier until it wears you down and you can’t function anymore.

13- As thoughts enter your mind, you have to weed out the bad and cultivate the good. Think of every thought and its consequences on your life. Once you understand this, you can consciously and subconsciously affect the outcomes of events in your daily occurrences. Be like the farmer that tends his field. prune the bad and allow the good to flourish. If you allow the weeds to grow they will suck the life out of you and you will not be able to have a good harvest.

14- Understand the awesome power of the spoken word and why is can have such an effect on others. Say what you mean and mean what you say. Your words determine the trust others have for you and how people ultimately treat you. Words are like daggers. They can hurt even the strongest among us. Allow your words to penetrate with love and care. Even if you do not like someone, do not talk badly about them because words are energy. They can and will travel right to that person. Let your words be the water that nourishes the world at large.

15- Always watch what you say because the next step beyond thought are words and you give energy to that thought when you speak them whether in public or private. Relegate those thoughts to the trash and give only your positive thoughts reason to grow. Try to only speak when you have something positive to add and learn to listen more. Knowledge comes from listening to others not teaching the learned.

16- Energy is the basis for all thought and action. Take that energy and put it to good use. Find ways to give back to others as well as the world where you are creating beauty and love instead of hate and cancer.

17- God is the source of all energy and his love is eternal. His unconditional love is pure energy. It is full of positivity and when you access this energy, God can work wonders in your life. No matter where you are not God can use you to make the world a better place to live and work in. in Isaiah 64:8 we are told, “Yet you, LORD, are our Father. We are the clay, you are the potter; we are all the work of your hand.” Allow God to mold you like clay so that you become a positive force for love and care.

Positive Thinking Is a Way of Life

Each and every one of us has the choice to live either with a positive or negative mindset. How we live is  contagious if it positive. The more negative you are the more you push others away.

According to Remez Sasson,“People are more disposed to help us, if we are positive, and they dislike and avoid anyone broadcasting negativity. Negative thoughts, words and attitude, create negative and unhappy feelings, moods and behavior. When the mind is negative, poisons are released into the blood, which cause more unhappiness and negativity. This is the way to failure, frustration and disappointment.”

Brian Tracy, the dean of modern positive thinking asks this one question: “Can you guess what the most successful and happy people think about all day long?

The answer is quite simple…

Healthy, happy people think about what they want, and how to get it, most of the time. In this way developing a positive attitude can truly change your entire life.”

What are you thinking about all day long?

Your problems, your bills, maybe even the negatives from past? This is a prescription for unhappiness.

Brian goes on to say, “When you think and talk about what you want and how to get it, you feel happier and in greater control of your life. When you think about something that makes you happy, your brain actually releases endorphins, which give you a generalized feeling of well-being. As a result, you develop a positive attitude.”

Living with a positive mindset is an attitude. One that takes training, motivation and time. Most people think they can just be positive and that covers it all but it goes way beyond just thinking positively. You must make it your life’s work. Just as a painter or sculptor makes it their life’s work always trying for perfection we must follow their example.

Be positive and make it count. Follow through and you will see big changes in your life. That terrible attitude that has been holding you back will fall to pieces when you allow positive thoughts to rule your mind. Good things will start to happen and it will be like a tidal wave that takes over your life.

Ride the wave and see it through. You won’t regret it.

In part 2 we will delve into the idea that  self-talk creates its own reality and how to change your reality with positive thinking.

Let’s take positive thinking to the next level.
