Power of our Thoughts

All that we are is a result of our thoughts”

Bhudda

Have you ever wondered what your ‘superpower’ is? 

You do have one. 

In fact, we all do!

Did you ever think that your superpower would be the thoughts you hold in your mind? Yep, that’s what I said – the thoughts in your mind. Read on and you’ll see…

Believe it or not, we have the power to physically change the chemical structures in our bodies just by the type of thoughts we have. Seriously.

Our thoughts can change our biology. How great is that?! 

Imagine. 

The quality of your thoughts can have a direct impact on how your body reacts including whether you’re more likely to develop a disease. Why? Because stress shuts down the immune system

Thankfully, it can also work the other way too. Positive thoughts can help you recover from an illness.

What does this mean?

It means our thoughts can make us more susceptible to disease or it can heal us, depending on the type of thoughts we have. But we can’t do both at the same time.

Research in epigenetics has shown that disease in our body is often caused by the environment we live in. If we live in dis-ease, our bodies will inevitably experience disease. 

Some of the world’s top doctors have even gone further to explain that diseases like cancer are not actually caused by genes – it’s caused by the quality of life we live, the people we surround ourselves with, the food we eat, the thoughts we have and our day-to-day living. 

Crazy, right?!

Who would have ever considered that a ‘thought’ could have such a beneficial or adverse impact on their body? 

The fact that you can change your internal chemical structure just by changing your thoughts is completely mind-blowing and so incredibly powerful! 

To add some more excitement, studies in epigenetics shows that in whichever way a mother perceives the world, the baby will follow suit. 

For example, if, during pregnancy the mother experiences violence, arguments and the like which causes her stress, studies show that those emotions and hormones impact the baby and can even stunt the baby’s intelligence by up to massive 50%! 

Why? 

Because nature is using the information collected from a parent’s perception of the environment to create the baby.  

This is why fathers also play such a vital role in ensuring that they are creating a harmonious and happy environment for the mother to grow the wonderful life inside her.

So, what can you do to ensure your baby is developing in optimum conditions? 

It’s simple. 

Change the beliefs you have in your subconscious which effectively rules 95% of how you live your life. 

How can you change them? 

This is also simple. 

Review the things that are going well in your life and understand that the reason they are going well is because of the subconscious thoughts you have on those things. 

Now do the same for the things that aren’t quite going how you would like. The reason they aren’t going the way that you like is the same – it’s because of the subconscious thoughts you have on those things, usually limitations. 

Take those things that you would like to improve and work on them until they form part of your subconscious.

How can you turn a new behaviour or thought into a subconscious one?

There are a couple of ways you can do this:

  1. Repetition – repeat the new behaviour you want to develop and it will eventually become a habit and transcend to the subconscious mind. It requires daily practice and is attainable provided you are consistent with your approach; or
  1. Fake it ‘til you make it – the way this works is that you ‘pretend’ you already have the new behaviour you want to develop. For example, if you want to have a positive outlook on life, literally take every ‘negative’ situation and ask yourself, ‘what can I learn from this to help me become better?’. Do this every time you feel triggered by something. Over time, you will naturally start perceiving challenges in a much more positive way.

There is an inner genius in all of us just waiting to be unleashed!
