Did you know that ninety percent of what we are can’t be seen with the physical eye? Why is this? Think about it for a moment; the way we present ourselves—the way we dress, act, walk and talk—can easily distract from the reality of who we truly are. Who we truly are manifests itself most deeply in one of the greatest, most powerful intangible forces within us: our thoughts.
You see…everything we do begins with a thought. A thought can lead to victory or defeat. A single thought can result in good or evil. Or can lead or mislead.
As our “mission controls, " our brains are both broadcasting and receiving stations for the vibrations of thoughts. Our brains possess innate ability to send the messages of our thoughts to our physical selves. Then our physical selves manifest our intangible thoughts into the material world, so we can physically see, touch, weigh and measure them. This is why most of us find it so easy to depend a great deal on what our physical senses tell us, and limit our knowledge to physical things. We tend to forget or not even realize that the driving forces behind everything we materialize are our thoughts.
Sadly, some people become creators of their own “misfortune" because they believe themselves “doomed" to negative outcomes—such as failure and poverty. They feel they’re unable to better their own lives due to some strange force over which they believe they have no control. They may not even realize, as they’re feeding their minds with these negative beliefs, their subconscious minds are also picking up these same beliefs, and are translating them into their physical equivalent.
Your subconscious mind is very powerful, however it makes no distinction between constructive and destructive thought impulses. It works with the material you feed it, through your thought impulses. Your subconscious mind will translate into reality a thought driven by fear just as readily as it will translate into reality a thought driven by courage, or faith. It is vital for you to encourage your positive emotions as dominating forces of your mind, and discourage—and eliminate negative emotions. A mind dominated by positive emotions will surely become a favorable adobe for the state of mind known as faith.
All thoughts that have been emotionalized (given feelings) and mixed with faith, will immediately begin to translate themselves into their physical equivalent or counterpart. The emotion, or “feeling" portion of thoughts, are the factors that give thoughts vitality, life, and action. Not only thought impulses which have been mixed with faith, but those which have been mixed with any of the positive emotions, or any of the negative emotions, may reach, and influence the subconscious mind. And the subconscious mind will translate into its physical equivalent a thought impulse of a negative or destructive nature, just as readily as it will act upon thought impulses of a positive or constructive nature.
The human mind is constantly attracting vibrations that harmonize with that which dominates the mind. Any thought, idea, plan, or purpose which you hold in your mind through repetition of thought attracts a host of its relatives, and grows until it becomes the dominating, motivating master of your mind. It will benefit you greatly to write out a clear statement of your major purpose, or definite chief aim, commit it to memory, and repeat it, in audible words, day after day, until these vibrations of sound have reached your subconscious mind.
Resolve to throw off the influences of many unfortunate environments, and build your own life to order. Pass on to your subconscious mind, any desire that you wish translated into its physical equivalent, in a state of expectancy or belief that the transmutation will actually take place. It is your belief, or faith, that is the element that determines the action of your subconscious mind. So conduct yourself just as you would if you were already in possession of that which you desire. When you truly come to recognize the power of your thoughts, you won’t want to make room in them for negative ideas, trivial concerns, mundane needs or quiet desperation. Instead, you’ll find yourself wanting to focus only on positive ideas, emotions, habits and attitudes that will place you on the treadmill of a fulfilling life. You would then have truly come to understand the concept: As you think, you shall become.
