When Does Your Belief Become The Truth?

Saturday, December 30th, 2006

Ever wondered why some people turn anything they touch into gold; while other people fail even before they attempt something?

Most people would simply call it luck; perhaps saying, “you’re just lucky.” And if they weren’t pleased with the outcome, it’s a “bummer.” You might hear, “well, try another time and it may work out.”

What do these statements tell us? They carry hints into the beliefs behind our thoughts. Obviously, it is presumed that we have no control of the outcome; how else could you explain the word “luck?”

Have you ever heard rich people saying these things? Do you believe managers and CEO’s lead their companies by rolling the dice? They would probably be fired immediately if they were discovered to be relying upon luck.

Consciousness is The Field of All Possibilities

Thursday, December 28th, 2006

All our perceptions, sensations, dreams, thoughts and feelings – are forms appearing in consciousness. It doesn’t always seem that way. When I see a tree it seems as if I am seeing the tree directly. But science tells us something completely different is happening.

Light entering the eye triggers chemical reactions in the retina, these produce electro-chemical impulses which travel along nerve fibers to the brain. The brain analyses the data it receives, and then creates its own picture of what is out there. I then have the experience of seeing a tree. But what I am actually experiencing is not the tree itself, only the image that appears in the mind. This is true of everything I experience. Everything we know, perceive, and imagine, every color, sound, sensation, every thought and every feeling, is a form appearing in the mind. It is all an in-forming of consciousness.

The Wisdom to Choose Thoughts That Strengthen You

Saturday, December 23rd, 2006

Dr. Wayne W DyerEvery single thought you have can be assessed in terms of whether it strengthens or weakens you, in fact, there’s a simple muscle test you can do to try out any thought that you’re having in the present moment.

It works like this: Hold your arm out to your side, and have someone else attempt to push your arm down while you resist. Think of telling a lie, and notice how much weaker you are than if you think of a truth. This can be done for any thought that elicits an emotional reaction in a book titled Power vs. Force, David Hawkins, M.D., elaborates on this method and provides a map of consciousness to show you how every thought computes to either weaken or strengthen you.
