The Power of thought is incredible.
The most potent form of energy is thought because thought-waves are cosmic waves penetrating all time and space.
Our thoughts are very powerful and science is doing exciting experiments with the power of thought.
In July 2007 the Silicon Valley company Nerosky launched a device that lets you control a computer game just by using your thoughts.
Neurosky and other companies are doing intensive research into the field of mind and the power of thought. They are developing even more sophisticated devices capable of applying human thoughts.
Since the power of thought is a very potent form of energy that penetrates all time and space we need to be aware of what we think.
Fortunate for the human race we are able to control our thoughts. We can use our mind and practice the process of thinking. We can make ourselves think thoughts of what we want to be or have.
In 1903 Wallace D Wattles wrote his book The Science of Getting Rich and a central part of the book is about thinking regardless of circumstance.
To think what you want to think is to think truth regardless of appearances. To think according to appearances is easy. To think truth regardless of appearances is laborious and requires the expenditure of more power than any other work you have to perform.We can choose to think as an optimist and have a positive view on life. We can choose steps of positive thinking or we can choose to think as a pessimist.
It is entirely up to each and one of us as outlined in the poem by Norman Van Horne:
When you're gifted with the power of thought
It is a wonderful thing in a way,
But it can also create problems
If your thoughts tend to go astray.
The power of thought brings things to light
That we tend to postpone
But now folks with the power of thoughts
Have today become quite known
So if you posses the power of thought
And don't know how to use it
Consult others who have the same quality,
But very seldom abuse it.
For the Lord gave us the power of thought
To do with as we choose
So hang on to it, always,
It is one power you don't want to lose!
Norman Van Horne
"A pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity; an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty" - Winston Churchill
"Difficulties mastered are opportunities won" - Winston Churchill
"For myself I am an optimist - it does not seem to be much use being anything else" - Winston Churchill
If you decide to really achieve something in your life - you will. It is all a matter of how you think about yourself and what you think you are capable of. The power of positive thinking is incredible.
You can work wonders with the power of thought. Through the instrumentality of thought, you acquire creative power.
In his book A Happy Pocket Full of Money David Cameron talks about the power of thought and capability:
You say, "I wish I could do that. But I can't." Sometimes the thing you desire seems most evasive and elusive to you. You may seem to think that you need money or something else that is external to you for you to be able to achieve your desire. And because this external thing is away from you and you don't have it, you think that you are doomed because even that seems elusive. So you are stuck in a vicious circle. You accept that, you fear it.
But before you accept something that has absolutely no value to you, take another look. Fear is a thing we are conditioned to accept without question, yet it has absolutely no value. Next time you accept fear, ask yourself what value it really has for you. Escape is not a value. There is nowhere to run. Eventually, you will be found and you will have to face yourself. Running away from a problem is an idea that stems from the illusion that there is a you with a problem, and a you that can escape the you with the problem. Insane? Yep! The first step to getting out of a problem is knowing and accepting that you are the problem, and then you become the solution. Nothing outside changes, but as you change, a new outside replaces the old. The law of attraction and the law of cause and effect work this way.
For now, let us define capability. What is can?
Everyone has things that they can do now that they could not do before. You can now walk while as a child you could not. The ground never changed, but you did. You can now read while you once could not. The English language never changed, but you did. At one time, Bill Gates could not write software, now he can. The world did not change, Bill did. At one time, Jesus could not perform miracles, then he did. Miracles did not change, Jesus did. At one time the Buddha was not enlightened, then he was. The ways of the universe did not change, the Buddha did.
He goes on to use an example from the movie business.
In the movie Matrix where actor Keanu Reeves plays the character Neo we witness how he changes his idea of himself. From being a sceptic about his own capabilities and what is possible for him to do to truly believe he can do the unthinkable.
Within each of us there is a "believing Neo" - a super force beyond your wildest dream.
You can become unstoppable if you believe in yourself. Learn more by getting the Make A Ripple Make A Difference e-book about energy, the universe, consciousness, the power of thought and how they make ripples in the sea of energy we call the universe, the formula for success and much more.
We all have the capability to think in a positive matter if we really want to, but way too often we resort to negative thinking and ideas that we are not able to do this or that.
Unfortunately many people grow up hearing that they can't do a certain task or that they can't pursue a certain profession. They are put down by people close to them saying things: "who do you think you are trying to accomplish that".
This type of "mind limiting talk" will unfortunately end up being part of you. We are formed by statements and sayings from our parents, kids in school, friends, society etc. And for most people it creates a limiting belief system which enters into our mind and being. It might be a belief that we are no good in math or that we are a person nobody likes or that we can't succeed in the business world or that we can't succeed in sports or that we can't succeed in relationships and so on.
The way you perceive and interpret yourself is a result of the belief system you adopted while growing up.
Back in 1960 Maxwell Maltz wrote the book Psycho-Cybernetics where he talks about the self-image we form growing up:
We all carry with us a mental blueprint or picture of ourselves. It has been built up from our own beliefs about ourselves. But most of these beliefs about ourselves have unconsciously been formed from our past experience, our successes and failures, our humiliations, our triumphs, and the way other people have related to us, especially in early childhood. From all these we mentally construct a "self" (or a picture of a self). Once an idea or a belief about ourselves goes into this picture it becomes "true" as far as we personally are concerned. We do not question its validity, but proceed to act upon it just as if it were true.
Hence it becomes very important to change your self-image if that image is one of a limiting character of some sort.
You can change your self-image with the power of thought using affirmations and subliminal messages.
Our built in beliefs are powerful. They are powerful in the sense that they dictate our ability to reach our goals, but in fact they are nothing more than specific neural patterns in your brain - they are thoughts that are so ingrained they have become automatic. They are not there because they are "the truth", they have simply been handed down from generation to generation. They are there because someone put them there.
This is not a about faith or religion - it is about your beliefs- your habits of thought, opinion and attitude about the world around you, and especially your beliefs about you, about your life and your prospects for financial fulfillment.
By the time you are seventeen years old, you have heard "No, you can't" an average of 150,000 times. You've heard "Yes, you can" about 5,000 times. That is thirty nos for every yes. That makes a POWERFUL belief of "I can't".
These beliefs are thousands of times stronger than desires. So if you desire something like a new house or getting a new job it will not happen if your beliefs are "I can't". The beliefs win every time.
It is your habit of thought ( your beliefs), not your desires that run your actions.
This is one of the greatest discoveries of the past decade of neurological research: 95-97 percent of all your behaviors are automatic. This is why we set goals, but don't reach them. Setting them is a function of the conscious mind. Reaching them is a function of the non-conscious mind.
In January 2011 a new video featuring prof. in biology Bruce Lipton was released. In this video he explains the power of our subconscious mind and our belief system. He also talks about the difference between Quantum Physics and Newtonian Physics. It is worth seeing.
In the movie What The Bleep Do We Know!? Dr. Joe Dispenza talks about how our brain works. He talks about the tiny nerve cells in the brain called neurons and how they have tiny branches reaching out to other neurons forming neuron-networks. Each place where they connect is integrated into a thought or a memory. He goes on to say that the brain does not know the difference between what it sees in its environment and what it remembers because the same neuro networks are firing - triggered.
This mean that we can break a habit or make a habit simply by repeating something over and over again in our mind or by actually doing it. If we want to break a habit it the neuron network will break up when we stop doing it over a certain time. If we want to learn something new and create a new habit it will cause the creation of a new network reinforcing the habit.
The first time you tried to ride a bike you probably failed to make it. Why? because the neuron network was being established. You were creating it and be trying over and over again the connections in the network gets stronger and stronger and all of a sudden you ride the bike without thinking about it. You do it automatically. You have created a habit.

"You are what you repeatedly do. Excellence is not an event - it is a habit" - AristotleWatching this clip from the movie What The Bleep Do We Know!? will explain more about neuron networks and habits:
We have all heard incredible stories about people doing the unthinkable.
A homeless person with no money becoming a multimillionaire - like Bill Bartmann who went from being homeless, broke, an alcoholic and paralyzed at the age of 17 to become the 25th richest person in the USA.
Someone becoming a legend and a historical person against "all odds" - like Mahatma Gandhi who freed India from The British Empire.
People recovering miraculously from a terrible disease or accident - like Norman Cousins who was diagnosed with a disease with little chance of surviving, but went on to live many years longer than his doctors predicted.
and many similar stories.
They believe in themselves and they take action. They realize they have a giant inside, an incredible force that we all have - power of thought. The only difference is that these people have awoken this giant within - this force inside. They have realized the power of thought. They have conditioned themselves to act, behave and think in a certain way and when they see the results it reinforces their belief in themselves and they accomplish more and more and more.
They have changed their way of thinking and they are taking action.You can also awaken this giant inside - just like Anthony Robbins talks about.
In this interview with John Reese & Frank Kern - Anthony Robbins talks about the holy grail of taking action: certainty ( app. 13:45 into the video). It is a great video explaining why some people are successful in life and why others are not. It has to do with our beliefs systems, about what potential we think we have, about taking action based on our potential and then getting the results which will reinforce our belief system.
Success people use their mind and their thoughts to achieve their goals - they are taking specific action based on successful thinking. Successful people have a construct state of mind - a success attitude. They tell themselves : I CAN
Success comes to those who become SUCCESS CONSCIOUS - Napoleon Hill
The mind is the limit. As long as the mind can envision the fact that you can do something, you can do it, as long as you really believe 100 percent. Arnold Schwarzenegger
Many people also use subliminal messages together with quiet music which enhance the connection between the right and the left hemisphere of the brain. Embedded in the music are affirmations about good health or financial wealth or happiness and so on. Subliminals have been successful for many years to help people change their life. Anthony Robbins used subliminal tapes when he first set out to condition himself for success.
The answer is that your brain activity slows down when you are going to sleep and you are entering into the alpha brainwave level. The alpha level is an important brainwave level for reprogramming your brain. It is much easier to rewire your brain at the alpha brainwave level than in the fully awake level (called beta).
Our brain is made up of billions of brain cells. These are called neurons, which use electricity to communicate with each other. Combination of electrical activity between neurons in the brain are often called brainwave patterns. These patterns have a cyclic, wave-like look. When we think we are actually sending out brainwaves - electric waves - which are registered in the brain. These waves are emitting tiny electrochemical impulses of varied frequencies. These can be registered by an Electroencephalography (EEG).
There are four simple periodic rhythms recorded in the EEG and they are: alpha, beta, delta, and theta. These rhythms are identified by frequency (Hz or cycles/sec).

This is why many Law of Attraction teachers talk about vision boards and creative visualization.
By training your mind to see and feel what you want you are actually attracting it. In addition to the visual exercise there are also other parts you need to consider when getting the Law of Attraction to work.
If you have seen the movie The Secret or read the book you have been told you can attract anything. You have been told that you can just think of it and visualize it and you will attract it. This is not the whole process since this is just the first step. The second step is to be at the same vibrational frequency as the item or thing you are wanting. This you do with your feelings.
You must "be in love" with what you want so that your whole being is sending out waves on the same frequency as what you want. Everything is made up of energy and everything vibrates - you just need to tune yourself into the correct vibrational frequency of what you want. Just like a radio station can switch to different programs by switching the frequency. The third step is to expect it.
This is the same process Helen Hadsell, age 83 (in 2009) has been using all her life to win countless cash Prizes, over 5 trips to Europe, a luxury Home, and Every Contest She Has Entered.
Throughout her life she says she has won every contest she has entered into and she says it is all because of using the Law of Attraction and the process above. More about Helen Hadsell here.
