What do you find yourself mostly thinking about? How often do you think about things? And do you wonder why we try to avoid not thinking about certain things? I'm sure you know that thinking is doing something, it is a form of action that many people engage in and it is exactly what is creating your thoughts, and what your thoughts are focused on is exactly what will result in your reality whether good or bad, positive or negative, or simply right or wrong. Life will tell you by the way you feel! You will get more of the things that you think about no matter how you think about them because the Universe will hear how you feel about it.
An example to paint the picture a little clearer; picture yourself having to stand up and speak in front of a large crowd of people on the spot without having any time to prepare for whatever you're going to say. How does this thought make you feel? Be super honest with yourself and really think about what thoughts went through your mind. As for me, I know that several years ago, I would have started sweating profusely and trembling at the thought. I would slur and stumble over my words because the thoughts that were predominantly coming to me at that time was shame and failure. The fear of looking and sounding stupid usually overtook me and made me want to flee any public speaking activities. I recall having to speak in front of class more and more often in College and I hated it with a passion. It was that hate that drove my thoughts that drove my thinking and it continued that vicious cycle of being super uncomfortable about this topic. In my mind, I would even think about how I could hurt that someone that laughed at me or made me feel dumb. I also covered it up by using humor, trying at times too hard to make them laugh so that they wouldn't take me too serious. I know many of you have also done this as well and have your own horror stories about being asked to speak in public.
But today, after so much self work and re-framing my thoughts about public speaking, I am able to do it on the spot without having all of the ill effects as before and so can you. I do still get a bit nervous, but once I turn it into a thought of service and of contribution, I quickly recover and I am able to speak to the topic at hand with gusto and passion. Remember, it did not happen over night, it took me years of self work and self discovery changing what and how I thought about me and who I was, who I was pleasing, and the real truth about fear. Re-framing, or looking at how you see things different is within your control. Yes, after so much research and practice, I found that we do have the absolute power over how we want to create and accept the thoughts that we think. Without the ability to form these thoughts, our bodies would be highly robotic and not so fluid or theatrical. We wouldn't be able to show any type of discomfort or immense confidence if we weren't able to give feelings to our thoughts.
So yes, you are continuously creating your feelings by the thoughts that you choose or have been programmed to think. If you continue to see bad things come into your life, you must use your ability to question why this is. You must say, "Hey, wait a minute, if these are my thoughts and I have control over them, then why am I sitting here with a bottle of whisky trying to escape my reality?" This is why many people try to learn different ways of holding down, dealing with, or accepting their own realities. They feel that they don't have the power over their lives, that they will remain victims of this society and will continue to allow society to direct their lives. Many will not know that they have always had the power to empower themselves to create the type of life worth living and being awake for.
