thoughts create reality

Thoughts create reality.  This is a universal, metaphysical principle.  Thoughts trigger emotions, which either spur us into action or lull us into inaction.  And, of course, our actions culminate in the outcomes we manifest and don’t manifest in our lives.

Let’s examine the journey of a single thought.

Think back to the last time you caught yourself rehashing an unpleasant situation or reliving an encounter that hurt, disappointed, or annoyed you.  Examining this experience will bring to light two very important things about how thoughts create. 

First, the more airtime you give to any thought, the more vivid and detailed it becomes.  And second, the mind cannot tell the difference between a thought about something “real,” and a thought about something remembered or imagined.   

The thoughts we think flood our minds with images that have the power to trigger the entire range of our human emotions.  They can lead us on an upward spiral of hopefulness and elation, or a downward spiral of cynicism and despair.  Our thoughts are like seeds, and our minds are like a fertile plot of soil.  In the same way a seed blossoms into a flower or a weed, our thoughts create.  And the quality of what we manifest in our lives is always a reflection of the quality of the thoughts we think.     

Thoughts create by generating vibrations.

The fact is, every thought we think, every image we conjure, even every memory we revisit from our past, causes a change in our vibration.  Some thoughts and images cause our vibration to soar, while others cause our vibration to plummet.  You know this from your own personal experience.  

Most people give others the credit or the blame for fluctuations in their own personal vibration.  But the fact is, each of us is responsible for our own energetic atmosphere.  After all, we are the only ones with the power to choose our own thoughts.  And we alone choose our own mindset.  

You can choose the direction of your thoughts – AKA your mindset – on purpose.

The ability to calibrate or adjust our own mindset is a power that originates 100% from within each one of us.  Yes, it’s true that other people and outer circumstances can and do exert an influence in our lives.  But we are the ones who choose the direction of our thoughts, our perceptions and moods, and – ultimately – the quality of energy that we flow towards our creations.  And from our thoughts and our mindset, everything flows.

Our mindset determines whether we see the proverbial glass as half full or half empty.  It informs whether we think we can or can’t do something.   Our mindset can lure us into a downward spiral where it feels like everything that is going wrong or guide us along an upward spiral of appreciation as we acknowledge all that is going right.   Mindset determines our perspective, our attitudes, our emotions, and – as a result – the outcomes we ultimately create.  

The mindset you hold about every important subject in your life is like a personal weather system that you carry with you everywhere you go. 

It’s made up of the combined energy of your thoughts, your imaginings, your moods, your expectations, and your beliefs.  But unlike the weather, you have control of the energetic atmosphere in which you live.  And as such, you can choose to reside in the vibration of prosperity, even when others are choosing lack.  

You can choose faith, even before there is evidence that warrants it.  You can choose empowerment, even when those around you are marinating in victimhood.  Everything begins with the direction of your thoughts because thoughts create reality.  Exercising this all-important choice is the secret to living your best life, and to manifesting everything that you desire.
