Getting Control of Your Thought Life

thought life - loveI just did a search on “thought life” and it turned up a lot of Christian and religious web sites.  I don’t really intend to preach at you, so stick with me.  Yes, your thought life can have spiritual ramifications.  And those consequences could be negative or positive.  It depends on what you think about.

Do I Have A Thought Life?

If you are a human, you have a thought life.  Whether or not you intend it, you think about things.  A lot of younger people think about how their life will be better when: they move out, they get married, they get a better job, they have a baby, or they buy a house.  A lot of things they think relate to how they are unhappy but it will be better when the next event happens.

Older people often think of their past more than their future.  We live in glory days, conquests, regrets, and or grief.  The past often seems more desirable than the future.  Or maybe you still think like a younger person, and look forward to retirement.  I prefer to be happy in the moment, but I still do have thoughts about the future.

Get What You Want By Altering Your Thoughts

Jeff in thought

It is an interesting twist on reality.  Some believe that you create your world with the things you think and believe.  That you can bring wealth by believing you are a wealthy person.  That you can get your dream house by believing you already possess it.  I am here to tell you that it is true.  But how is that possible?

Some would say that the universe bends to your thoughts.  I am a little more pragmatic than that.  I believe magic exists in reality.  Not that magic is real, but sometimes reality can look magical, and sometimes it can be interpreted as magic.  Or perhaps as the universe giving you what you really want.

I do not see this as religion.  I just believe that your thought life can have a real impact on your real life.  That the things you think show up on your face.  That the way you deal with problems is impacted by the negative outcomes you think about.  Having a positive attitude in your thoughts shows outwardly to other people, and makes you more attractive.  People help people they like more than people they do not.  It could just be little things like making an introduction, or it could be bigger things like offering you your dream job.
