Thoughts, thoughts, thoughts
It would be so cool if there was a thought meter that would count how many thoughts we have throughout an entire day.
To take it one step further, it would be even better if the meter could print out a report at the end of the day with two columns. Column one would be called “Negative Thoughts” and column two would be called “Positive Thoughts.” Then under each column it would print out what those thoughts were.
I have a feeling the “Negative Thought” column would have a lot more thoughts on it than the positive thought column!
What thoughts are you thinking about?
When you stop to think about it, you’re always thinking about something – but are you usually thinking about questions like these: why something went wrong? why don’t I have enough of something? why did this happen? why did that happen? why didn’t he do what he said he would do? why am I still doing what I don’t want to do? I’m afraid of what my future holds, I’m worried about something, will I ever fall in love? and on and on and on!
With all these negative thoughts running through your head all day long, it’s no surprise that all these thoughts mentioned above (and others along those lines) are still what’s manifesting for you. We always have to remember that what we think about and focus on is what we’re attracting, and going to attract.
The good news about thoughts
The good news is that you can take control of your thoughts little by little, day by day, thought by thought – starting today!
One way to do this is that when you find yourself thinking a negative thought, literally ask yourself “what do I want?” regarding whatever it was you were thinking about. Once you know what you want (which is usually the opposite of the negative thought) and you start focusing on what you want, then eventually what you want will become what is. The trick is that you have to practice asking yourself that question “What do I want?” over and over.
Eventually, with practice, more and more of your thoughts will be about what you want, instead of what you don’t want. Oh what a joyous day that will be!
