How much do thoughts weigh? I have no idea. Not important.
The point is, thoughts are things. Think about this: let’s say you’re in a dark alleyway. A little scary, huh? Now let’s say you hear footsteps behind you, coming closer. Even scarier. You probably feel a pulse of adrenaline course through your body, you might start sweating, your throat might feel like it’s closing up a bit. But then you turn around and find that there were no footsteps…the noise was just a piece of paper scuttling across the floor.
So…that physical response was not caused by something outside of your mind, because there was nothing there to be scared of. That response in the physical world was caused solely by your mind. Thoughts manifest themselves in the world around you. Your mind can change things in the physical world!
This is wonderful news for anyone who wants to reach success, because it means our visualizations can (and will!) manifest themselves in our daily lives. The power of visualization has been harnessed endlessly by successful people, and has been researched and written about extensively. I’m going to boil down all of that information for you in a nice, short paragraph.
When you visualize what you want in life, your subconscious mind cannot tell that that input is fake. It processes all information as real input. So when you vividly imagine having what you want, your subconscious mind accepts it as real, and will begin working toward that for you. This is closely linked to the power of positivity. When your subconscious mind accepts these visualizations as real inputs, it reasons that those things are possible because it believes they are already in existence. If you believe something is impossible (for you to do), even on a subconscious level, you will never accomplish it. Your subconscious won’t let you waste your time…how nice of it! But when you believe that something is actually possible for YOU, your subconscious mind will allow you to spend time and effort working toward it.
Wow, that’s one heck of a paragraph! I’m mighty proud of that. Read it again, take it to heart, and start visualizing your way to success. Remember, your thoughts are things, and will manifest themselves in your life, and your physical world.
