The following is from a Wayne Dyer blog post – More about how to heal our bodies and how to guide ourselves TO the more healing, positive thoughts that contribute to actual physical changes in the cells, tissue and chemicals in our bodies. It’s easy and important reading! ~ Karen
“When you shift from a thought that’s a very low energy vibration to one of a higher frequency, you go from weak to strong. When your thought is on blaming others, you’re weakened. But when you shift to loving and trusting others, you become strong. Your thoughts come with an accompanying energy, so you might as well shift to those that empower you. Once you realize that what you think about is the source of your experience of reality, then you’ll begin to pay more attention to what you’re thinking in any given moment.
Many years ago, in a tremendously popular audio program called The Strangest Secret, Earl Nightingale taught many of us that we become what we think about all day long. Your thoughts determine whether you’re being empowered or weakened—whether you’re happy or sad, successful or not. Everything is a thought that you carry around with you. Happy thoughts create happy molecules. Your health is determined largely by the thoughts you have. Passionately think that you won’t get a cold, and your body will react to your thoughts. Refuse to entertain thoughts of fatigue, jet lag, or headaches, and your body responds to your thoughts.
Your mind tells your body to produce the drugs it needs to keep you healthy. Give someone a sugar pill and convince them that it’s an anti-arthritic drug, and that person’s body will react to the placebo with the increased production of anti-arthritic energies. The mind is a powerful tool in creating health. It also creates divine relationships, abundance, harmony in business—and even parking places! If your thoughts are focused on what you want to attract in your life, and you maintain that thought with the passion of an absolute intention, you’ll eventually act upon that intention, because the ancestor to every single action is a thought.
The most empowering thoughts you can have are those of peace, joy, love, acceptance, and willingness. These thoughts don’t create a counter-force. Powerful, joyful, loving thoughts stem from your willingness to allow the world to be as it is. Then you’re in a state of inner bliss where serenity replaces fighting, reverence for all of life substitutes for craving and anxiety, and understanding supplants scorn. You become an optimist. Rather than seeing the glass as half empty, it’s always half full.
All of this is nothing more than a conscious decision on your part to be in charge of your thinking. Be aware at any given moment in your life that you always have a choice about the thoughts you allow in your mind. No one else can put a thought there. Regardless of the circumstances you find yourself in, it is your choice. Choose to replace disempowering, weakening thoughts with thoughts of a higher spiritual frequency.
Don’t convince yourself that it can’t be done or it’s easier said than done. Your mind is yours to control. You are the creator and selector of your thoughts. You can change them at will. It is your God-given inheritance; your corner of freedom that no one can take away. No one can have control of your thoughts without your consent. So choose to avoid thoughts that weaken you, and you will know true wisdom. It is your choice! ” Wayne Dyer
