What exactly does it mean when you hear someone say, “your thoughts create your reality?” It seems like a simple concept, but it’s much more complex.
What you tell yourself matters. Our thoughts create our future experiences. It’s like placing your order at a drive thru – you speak into the squawk box and order what you want (what you are focused on), and then you drive to the next window to pick up that order. Well, the Universe operates in a similar way. And the Universe is so literal, it will feed us back experiences based upon our thoughts, whether they are negative or positive. It is thoroughly objective and very responsive.
When you think a thought, that thought creates a specific frequency. It is as though the Universe hears that frequency by way of vibration and gives it back to us in the form of a future experience. What you are thinking right now will show up in your life, in the future. At any moment the thoughts you think are creating your future experiences which will show up tomorrow, next month, next year, or in a decade. That’s the rub: there is no specific or designated time in which the Universe will hand you an experience to match what you are currently thinking or focusing on. That is why it is critical to your transformation and future to be mindful, always! What you are saying to yourself right now will show up in a future experience whether you want it to or not.
So, what is your current inner dialogue? What do you say about yourself and others? Is what you are thinking or saying an experience that you would like to show up in your future? For example: if you are thinking or saying, “My life is terrible.” Literally, the Universe will energetically hear that and bring you more life experiences that reflect that your life is terrible. The flip side of that is if you are thinking “I love my life,” the Universe will energetically hear that too, and bring you life experiences that reflect more of what you love. Your outer world reflects your inner world. What you think, whether it’s negative or positive, shows up outside of you in the form of an experience ergo: Your thoughts create your (outer) reality.
But the great thing about thoughts is that they can be changed. And they can be managed. You and you alone have the power to change the way you think. Nobody can do it for you. You can choose differently, you can choose to monitor your thoughts which in turn, will create a new (future) reality. By monitoring your thoughts, you can choose to accept and allow only thoughts of a high frequency such as love, freedom, compassion, joy, fulfillment, and creation. Only thoughts of a higher, more elevated frequency will propel you into a future of your own design.
By practicing mindfulness and being aware of your thoughts, you can start to challenge them if necessary, or reframe them into an experience you would like to have in the future. The key is to become aware of what isn’t working in your life or what you don’t want in your life and choose to think differently. Most people have no idea that their thoughts create their reality and let harmful thoughts go unchallenged and unanswered, until ultimately, those thoughts show up in the person’s reality.
Since everything in our Universe is energy and all energy emits a vibration and frequency it is important that you become aware of the different vibes your thoughts create. If you are thinking survival or stress thoughts of anger, shame, guilt, impatience, frustration, hatred, greed, etc. those carry a very low frequency. In fact, I call them the “low and slow” gang of frequencies. If you are thinking more elevated thoughts of love, gratitude, compassion, freedom, and joy etc. those carry a much higher frequency. And elevating your frequency is the first step to creating sustainable change in your life.
To your freedom!
