Thoughts become things. That’s the easiest way to word it. It’s a crazy idea! I’ve been reading about the “law of attraction” on and off for almost 10 years now. I’ve done vision boards, visualizations, daily affirmations, mantras, etc. The whole idea was very hard for me to understand until I realized that, in order to understand the concept, I had to understand myself. I needed to change my perspective of the world. I needed to align my mind, body, and spirit.
Mind, Spirit, and Body
We assume that the mind, body, and spirit are separate things, however, they work as one. The spirit is the greater part of me, the one who helps and guides me (the universe, God, Goddess, source, etc.). The mind is the channel that interprets that guidance, the one that translate words into emotions, and the one that creates my reality/point of view of the world.
You see, everyone’s reality is different. Regardless if you’ve been by someone’s side their whole life, their reality or perspective of the world is going to be slightly different than yours. This is because the mind interprets their reality differently than yours.
The body is the physical form that our spirit takes in this reality. When our spirit is not aligned with our mind, our body is the one that gets affected. When we’re stressed or unhappy, it creates health, mental or relationship issues. When our mind and spirit is happy and positive, our body gains strength and endurance. When our body is not health, our spirit and/or mind will not be in the best shape.
It all starts with our thoughts.
Once I was able to improve my perspective/thoughts about myself and my life, things really started to change for the better. My moods, my situation, the people in my life, and the work that I did all changed. I found a new sense of passion, new goals, and dreams. It started when I had a burning desire to become happier, so I changed my thoughts and focused on what I wanted (not what I didn’t have).
End to Beginning vs. Beginning to End
Recently, I’ve been doing deeper reading and research about how the universe and how thoughts work within our reality. I’m currently reading some books by Mike Dooley. His whole idea is that we are ONE spiritual being living several lives and one of them is me… another is you.
Outside of our reality, in the spiritual realm, the universe works differently to make dreams come true. Instead of working from beginning to end (have a dream, take the steps required, and then dreams comes true), the universe works end to beginning. The universe first sees the dream that you want and works coincidences/miracles in your life to make that dream a reality. We think it, our mind believes it, and we act on it and make it happen.
So, the thoughts that you and I have now are creating the world of tomorrow through mind, body, and spirit.
Once we realizes that our behaviors will and CAN change, we can create the world around us and the life we want to live. In his book, Dooley goes into details about practices and routines that can help you achieve your deepest desires. He encourages you and makes you see your dream(s) without limitation. If you would like to read any of his books, I highly recommend “Manifest Change” and “Infinite Possibilities”.
I encourage everyone to do some meditating and visualizing about the life they want. Do daily affirmations that encourage that specific dream or desire. Focus on happiness, prosperity, abundance vs. material wealth and greed. Imagine adventures, wonderful relationships, pure happiness, great health, etc. Keep it positive and have faith. The Universe is here for you, working for you, and waiting for your wishes. It’s kind of like praying but instead of to someone in the sky, it’s to the energy that holds us all together.
