THE ULTIMATE EXPERIENCE
Come, sit with me, close your eyes, hold my hand, let's go far away from this place to the place in which you came from.
"The Invisible Energy, that Becomes Visible"
If you've been reading my blogs, you already know that most of my writings are about thoughts, feelings, actions. Today I was going to write about something completely different, but I was having a conversation with someone earlier that was intriguing. All of my conversations seem to lead this way, but we started talking about our thoughts. We talked about what happens when we have racing thoughts, attacking thoughts, and where we do the bulk of our thinking. I figured, "that's what I will write about," because people think its what thoughts cannot be seen. There's no hiding, we see you.
You can see your thoughts before you everyday. Everything that you are doing was a thought before it physically happened. All creation was a thought first, a thought that turned into action. Even when we say something, we may say that we said it without thinking, when we did think, we just didn't think it through. We're always thinking, it never ends, our minds are in continuous motion. We think about where it all began, and how it will end.
Our thoughts can take us on some wild journeys, and there are some thoughts that we would like to destroy forever. I know I would. We can create a mess of a situation with our thoughts, and we can design a beautiful wonderful life with our thoughts. When you're around someone, you can tell what they're thinking because it comes out in their words. If something is on your mind it's on your heart too. The heart is the true mind.
When I was first married, I created some of the most bizarre situations in my mind because it had been implanted in my mind to not trust men. Through the women that I was around growing up, the relationships that I witnessed, what I saw my male cousins do to girls, school, and knowing when someone's lying, trusting what a man says became extremely hard. The theory was backed up by an old ex-boyfriend that was a mother's worst nightmare that I was involved with. He did so many horrible untrustworthy, unfaithful things, and kept an act going like he was never doing anything wrong. This set a tone for me to keep a side-eye towards any man that I was involved with. I never had a boyfriend again after that teenage young adolescent relationship until I got into a healthy relationship with my husband.
I would think the wildest things about my husband, creating the craziest scenarios about our relationship, when he and the ex-boyfriend are absolutely nothing alike. I found it hard to believe when a man told me that he cared about me. I am going to do a blog post on this subject of trust, but I want you to understand where I am coming from.
These insecure thoughts led to arguments, hurt feelings, and other craziness that was a waste of time in our union. We could have been spending that time loving on each other and enjoying our love, instead of being involved in confusion and creating disdain for each other. I hadn't healed myself, and I was nit-picking, creating undesired outcomes. I left the gate open in my mind and the devil walked in.
He and I healed together. We grew up together, and we both had to heal. We both underestimated the power of out thoughts, but we learned.
We need to heal ourselves emotionally before we try to get involved with someone physically. If we are to get involved we need to make it known to the other person that we are on a healing journey, and see if they are understanding of our position. 9 times out of 10 they could use some healing too. We try to hide instead of heal, when we can heal together.
Thoughts can kill, literally they can kill your spirit, mind, and body. Thoughts have literally killed relationships, opportunities, and lives. There are people sitting in prison right now for life because of the thoughts that they had. People have been murdered over thoughts, thoughts that may have not been true.
We underestimate how I stomach health is connected to our thoughts. If we eat unhealthy foods consistently, it will affect the quality of our thinking. We may be unable to thinking clearly, having foggy thoughts, fearful thoughts, and we will become irritable. Think of a time when you were experiencing digestive issues, were you able to think clearly? Did you become irritated with the smallest of things, snapping at people, and feelings of frustration?
I drink 8 ounces of water with a teaspoon or half of teaspoon of baking soda for digestive issues. It's where the ginger ale and aka seltzer idea came from, but baking soda is natural. I only have problems with my stomach when my thoughts aren't focused on something pleasant. If the body feels tired, if it is in pain, if you don't feel well, 9 times out of 10, it's because you aren't thinking well. If you are thinking well, you will feel well. Children seem to have never ending energy because they aren't thinking about a bunch of stressful things. They have no history to tire them out. They aren't thinking about the past, and yesterday when they got into a spat with their playmate, or bills and errands that they have to take care of.
It is our thoughts that make us tired. Thinking, overthinking can exhaust us, and zap our energies.
Our gut is called our second brain, but to me it's the first. You've heard sayings like, "I am going to go with my gut on this one," "I felt it in my gut." You've had what is called "butterflies," in your stomach when you were nervous.
We feel it in our gut before we feel it anywhere else.
"The gastrointestinal tract is sensitive to emotion. Anger, anxiety, sadness, elation — all of these feelings (and others) can trigger symptoms in the gut. The brain has a direct effect on the stomach and intestines. For example, the very thought of eating can release the stomach's juices before food gets there." www.health.harvard.edu/diseases-and-conditions/the-gut-brain-connection
"The gut-brain axis refers to the physical and chemical connections between your gut and brain. ... Neurotransmitters and other chemicals produced in your gut also affect your brain. By altering the types of bacteria in your gut, it may be possible to improve your brain health."
I always say that you can eat anything, if your mood is good whenever you eat it. When we eat in a stressed or angry state, we must know that the food that we consume isn't going to settle well. How we feel means everything, how we feel whenever we eat our food will determine how the food will manifest in our bodies. Digestive issues, indigestion, constipation, diarrhea, heartburn, stomach cramps, all will affect they way we think. If we are experiencing any of these, it will be difficult to think clearly about anything.
The best way to keep a healthy gut is to keep healthy thoughts.
I used to be such an irresponsible thinker, and I credit meditation for training my thoughts. But meditation has to be continuously done for it to be effective. I would let my past decisions that didn't turn out so well haunt me. I was bogged down with regrets, and questions of "why did I do that?" I found it hard to forgive and let go of offenses. If you hurt me in any kind of way, I could never look at you the same. I held onto so much trash and bs that it was taking up space in my mind and energy. I would be filled with regret of ever getting involved with some people as if I could go through life without having to learn lessons. My thoughts were running me, telling me that this person meant me no good, that they probably were talking bad about me, and it goes on and on. Meditation made it so that I didn't care what anyone said or did. If they talk badly about me, so what? If they dislike me, so what? If they don't support me, so what? Meditation taught me that whatever someone else does, really is no reflection of me. Whatever they do is on them completely.
Meditation has helped me put things in perspective and let go of things that will never matter. Meditation places your thoughts in order, like putting your thoughts in files. The hour that I spend meditating sets my tone for the rest of the day. Even if I can't get an hour in, I get in at least 30 minutes of meditation. You really get a front row of your thoughts and how loud your mind is, when you take the time to meditate, and quiet it.
I watch what I think. I plan what I am going to think. I don't just allow my mind to run rampant. I make sure that I think what I want to think. If a thought arises and I don't like it, I get rid of it right away. The longer you allow an unwanted thought stay, the more it will be harder to make it go away. And once the motion of thought begins, you think a thought, you start to add to it, thinking more and more, then the next thing that you know, you're acting on it.
I use my thoughts to create the things and situations that I want to see happen in my life. I act on my thoughts that bring me ideas. I call them God inspired ideas. I put my thoughts in motion, and if thoughts of doubts arise, I recognize them because I am a watcher of my thoughts. I kick those doubts out too, I may just blow them up in my mind. Nothing slips by without me noticing it. I realize the magnitude of my thoughts, and if you keep thinking an undesired thought that is hard to get rid of, it is something that you need to face and deal with. It could be about a person in your life, and you could be having thoughts of the person and your relationship with them, if thoughts keep coming up, there is something about them that you need to face and deal with. Maybe you need to question your ego and see how it's involved, because a great deal of thoughts will come from our ego, but we don't have to entertain them. Don't let your ego lie to you, it's not true.
I reject thoughts all the time. I don't keep thinking them to give them power. I always interrupt them with words of, "God protect me." When fearful thoughts comes with an attack, I recognize them as trying to scare me, and I say, "this fear is not real." I am obsessed with watching what I think, so I love spending time alone, so that I can imagine and think uninterrupted.
Our thoughts carry a vibrational frequency just like everything else. I was thinking about someone earlier and they texted me. We draw people and situations to us with our thoughts. The more we think a thought the stronger it gets. Everything that we think isn't true, but we can surely make it true if we keep thinking it. We keep thinking it, and it gets stronger, sending out signals that we want whatever it is. Our subconscious mind rules 95% of our thoughts.
We have to catch unpleasant thoughts one thought at a time and cut them out of our mind. I command negative thoughts out of my mind, and they try to come back to enter again, and I kick them back out again. We must let these unwanted thoughts know that they are not welcome in our mind.
We can reframe how we look at past situations to change the way we look at past hurtful experiences. These old experiences will rise up in our thoughts unpredictably from time to time, and you will wonder why is this coming up now? It's coming up so that you can face it, acknowledge it, heal it, and move on. There is nothing that you can do to change what has already happened, and even though we know this, it can be difficult for our mind to grasp this, and let it go.
Because thinking these unwanted thoughts creates a stream of vibrations attracting whatever it is that we are thinking about, situations like it, and more of the same old thing. Then we will say, "this is always happening, why are the same things continuously happening to me?" When we think about it long enough, we speak it, and once we speak we give it the second phase of power in manifestation.
The majority of our thoughts are in the past or on the unforeseeable future. We only have power in the current moment with our current thoughts. Since our subconscious mind sees whatever we think as happening now, we have to be cautious of our thoughts now. We have the gift of thinking how we want things to be in our life and it happens. Wow that is pretty amazing and awesome! The subconscious mind will give us whatever we place most of our focus on. Whatever gets the most attention will be the theme in our lives, and it will show up every time. It will never fail us.
If we think that nothing is getting better for us, nothing will get better. If we think optimistic thoughts, our faith will prove to be true. We have the power to choose what we will think about, no one can take this away from you, and we can create from that space.
We are all connected, this is why you can read another's thoughts.
"Others pick up on the frequency, or vibration, and are attracted to it or repelled by it depending on their frequency at a particular time."
