Whatever you think you can do or believe you can do, begin it. Action has magic, grace and power in it ~ Johann Wolfgang
I swear i’d be a millionaire if I had a pound for every time someone has said to me ‘I wish I had a magic pill to make it all better’ . When have you uttered these words yourself or said something similar when life has got hard and things aren’t going the way you want them to?
It’s all too easy to think about taking a pill, to numb the effects of life, to either get rid of a feeling we don’t like or to bring in one we do like. As much as it may be the easy option to take a pill (or even wish you had an imaginary one to make it all better) the best way to resolve a problem is to use the power of your thoughts.
Thoughts are magic and you my dear friend, are the magic maker.
Once you begin to build on magic thoughts, more magic happens. You and only you are the thinker. No one thinks you in the same way no one breathes you.
You can in fact re-frame your thinking at any time. Here’s how. Think about the worst time in your life when you felt depressed, low, helpless, downtrodden and fed up with life…how do you feel when you think this way? Did your shoulders hunch over, your breathing slow down, sadness rise into your awareness, a memory of unhappy times coming to the fore? Your thoughts create how you feel from one moment to the next…
Now just for a moment, look around you what do you see? What colours are there in your periphery? Next think about how amazing it is to have the ability to read and how as you sit there your body is working independently for you. All kinds of things are going on which you may not be aware of. You’re breathing, digesting, processing and creating all kinds of emotions as you read through my words.
Now this is where the magic happens….
Take your mind to a happy time, a memory of a place you’ve been, perhaps you were with someone whose company you’ve enjoyed or shared special times with. Think about how happy you felt in the moment, joyous, carefree, confident, excited. Allow the feeling of happiness to continue flooding through your body as you remember this occasion.
In the same way you can’t think a negative thought and positive thought at the same time, try it. it’s impossible. What you can do is begin to choose your thoughts wisely. Thoughts include what you say outwardly in the spoken or written sense and also what you say inwardly (inside your own mind)
You are the magic maker, your thoughts are the magic pill. You can feel better or worse depending on the quality of your thoughts.
Every experience you go through has an opportunity to be re-framed. Simply reach for a higher feeling thought and feel your body respond accordingly.
See what magic you can create for yourself today, this week, this month. Thinking used wisely, is the best medicine of all!
Every day may not be a good day, but there’s something good in every day…
