The Power of Your Thoughts

The Power of Your Thoughts

There are 3 videos below that have the capacity to change your life. So even if you normally skip reading due to the ADD tendency that is growing in most of us, I urge you to watch the videos about the power of your thoughts.

So, where are you when it comes to harnessing the power of your thoughts?

Science proves what the spiritual traditions have been saying for thousands of years; our thoughts have a profound effect on the world around us. Yet the majority of people in our society are still not coming anywhere close to fully utilising this power that we all have available to us. I believe that two of the main reasons for this are

  1. Lack of knowledge, understanding or awareness
  2. Lack of trust

Therefore, the aim of this post is to bring insight to those who are new to this concept, and to also build trust in those who are already familiar with the idea. From there, taking inspired action towards positive change can be done with ease.

Why is this so important right now?

I believe that this is not only the key to being able to live with inner peace in this hectic Western world; you can take it much further. It is the first step in learning to create genuine space for enjoying life the way you want to, instead of merely existing the way you feel you have to.

From there, it can be possible for each individual to begin affecting positive change on a much larger scale. We can do this when we truly recognise the part that each of us plays in the collective consciousness that changes worlds.

 

Why watch the videos?

One of the main keys to building awareness and trust in the power of your thoughts, is to frequently consume material from recognised leaders in the area, be they scientific or spiritual. My advice is to contemplate and compare material from both arenas.

Below, you will find three videos from the world of science. Two of them by world renowned scientists and authors, Bruce Lipton and Gregg Braden. The third is by Lynne McTaggart, the investigative journalist and author whose main body of work springs from many years working closely with cutting edge quantum physicists. The videos explain themselves.

Wherever you are on the path of learning to harness the power of thought, I believe that these three videos (selected from hundreds that I could recommend) are powerful reminders to stop operating in the old paradigm, one of struggling to make things happen. Instead, come at things the smart way, the easier way, starting with your thoughts and intentions.

Why Should I Stop Judging?

Why Should I Stop Judging?

Most of were brought up being told to be kind to others by not judging them.

We know that somehow, judging is the wrong thing to do. However, that doesn’t stop most of us from doing it anyway.

Of course, there are degrees of judging, like anything else. Some people judge others incessantly, and it is only by doing so that they can feel somewhat better about themselves. Others, who have a reasonable sense of self-worth, don’t feel the need to judge much at all.

However, in my opinion, anyone who says that they never judge is most likely a liar, or else they haven’t examined their mind much lately. (Or else maybe they are an enlightened being!)

For most of us mere mortals, dropping judgement is a work in progress.

I know that this is true for myself. Having been brought up in a family where a very definite opinion about everything and everyone was almost mandatory, the concept of non-judgement, at first, felt almost foreign to me. I also experienced the common misperception that giving up judgement means giving up discernment.

It was only when I was in my thirties, when I was listening to a Buddhist teaching by Sogyal Rinpoche, that something about not judging struck a chord with me. I remember having a surprising sense of relief and peace that came over me when I listened to him repeating over and over,

“Don’t judge, don’t judge, don’t judge, don’t judge.”

At the time, I didn’t fully understand the reasoning behind this, other than it was the ‘right’ thing to do. I nonetheless felt as if some burden had been lifted from me when I set my intention to let go of judgement. “Phew! I don’t have to judge!”, I thought to myself.

I finally came to see the true benefits that non-judgement brings while learning about energy flow and how it is integral to our life experience.

In a nutshell, judgement blocks your flow of energy.

It is only when we learn to manage our flow of energy that we can really take control, and learn to make things easier for ourselves. I discuss this further in other articles and courses, and in my free video training.

At this point, I would like to share a passage from Sanaya Roman’s book, “Living with Joy” that gives examples of how the block of energy flow through judgement can manifest in our lives. I like the way that she writes about the drawbacks of judgement, and provides compelling reasoning for giving it up.

Judgment Sabotages You

“Judgement stands as an obstacle to self-love. Every time you judge, you separate. When you form opinions about another person, saying for instance ‘This person is lazy, or a failure, or has terrible clothes’, you send a message to your subconscious that the world is a place where you had better act in certain ways if you want to be accepted. By rejecting other people through your judgements, you inform your own subconscious that you are only going to accept yourself under certain conditions. This leads to an inner dialogue of self-criticism. It can also attract many negative images from the outer world, for once you send out these pictures, you create a pathway for them to come back.

Look at the messages you put out to other people…If you accept them, even just in your own mind, you will find other people accepting you more lovingly also. This dynamic can happen in subtle ways:

If you think people do not accept you as you are, and that you must try hard to please them, then you will draw those kinds of people into your life.”

Here is the same Law of Attraction premise related to judgement being expressed by Jo Dunning.

If we are judging, we don’t have compassion around that situation, and it is telling the universe we need to experience it or similar, so we can develop compassion. Don’t judge.

Judgment vs discernment

It is clearly smart not to judge, but this doesn’t mean letting go of discernment. It doesn’t mean that what others are doing must always be tolerated, and that you shouldn’t do anything about it.

However, by first dropping judgement, and thereby freeing your own energy flow, you will be in the best possible position to take effective action, and be able to effectively discern whether or not it is necessary in the first place.

While this short article may have begun to answer the question of why you should stop judging others, the main answer is going to come from your own experience. My hope therefore, is that it has inspired you to begin letting go of judgement more and more, and in doing so test it out for yourself.

Remember! The critical point is to drop judgement of yourself as well as others.

Simple Reminders for Daily Life

  1. Try to be mindful and aware of how much and how often you judge yourself. (You may well be surprised when you begin to look more carefully.)
  2. Try to see if you can catch yourself each time you notice judgement of others sneaking in. Then simply drop it. (Even better, see if you can turn it into compassion; but if you can’t, don’t worry!)
  3. Don’t be tempted to judge and criticise yourself for having had judgements!
  4. If you’re having trouble letting go of your judgements of yourself or others, read my post about letting go without struggle.
  5. Begin to take note when things seem to flow more easily for you when you judge less.

Build your trust, improve your life

Scientific proof of the power of intention

Anything that helps you to build more trust in the power of your own intention, will increase your success with manifesting the life you wish to lead. Therefore, I encourage you to watch this short video by the amazing Lynne McTaggart.

I always love watching and reading Lynne’s work because she is an extremely down to earth investigative journalist, and world renowned author of ‘The Field’, ‘The Intention Experiment’ and ‘The Bond’. Lynne’s work brings all the ‘woo-woo’ back down to a real and usable level!

It’s only short – watch it now! Enjoy.
