The Powerful Mind

Updated on January 20, 2011

The mind is a tool we use in our every waking moment without thinking, now there’s a contradiction! The minds processes we experience are thought; consciousness, perception, memory, will and imagination. Emotion is a sticky area and there has been much debate as to whether emotion is experienced through the mind; we make decisions about how we are going to feel in our minds yet are our emotions actually experienced there? When we feel high emotion we feel it running through us and it is very hard to pin point where that emotional, joy or pain is felt. Is it in our soul itself; our hearts, mind or combination of all? The heart is a physical organ; our true feeling heart is within our soul.

An open mind is a receptive one which is ready to consider possibilities that we may not have entertained before. An open mind is one which new doors open for; a closed mind is one that cannot accept anything other than what has been experienced. If a person has an open mind it brings with it areas that open up that maybe we had no concept of. A person with a closed mind could be of the opinion “seeing is believing”. Yet that person may be ignorant of the fact that unless our minds are open we cannot see what is possible. So they most likely will not ever ‘see’ anything new while they keep those doors closed. To them that is a validation of their perception of unknown areas being farcical; in fact without realising it they are making a choice not to see.

I have learnt through my work with spirit that the mind is the most important tool we have and the way it is used will greatly affect our experience of life itself and other possibilities. I am clairaudient (hearing spirit subjectively) yet have been told that there are other areas I will expand into if I keep my mind open and receptive. When a person is on a spiritual journey of any kind and has an open mind it is like a train ride with no stops. The vastness of our minds power we have yet to fully realise. Possibly we will never reach that in our physical human state. If we did I imagine the whole universe would change and certainly our world as we know it would be a very different place to be!

I’m taught about the minds power, it is a subject frequently brought up by spirit to me. The power of positive thinking is astounding and can greatly affect our life experience. When we walk through life believing that we won’t achieve what we want, we are sending a message out to the universe that is what we expect and the universe, as loyal as ever will gladly provide what we believe. What we hold in our minds shapes what becomes manifest in our lives. Thought becomes reality so we really should be careful about what we think and believe about ourselves and our futures. Think about you know of someone who has spent their entire lives being negative, everything is awful to them and they expect no joy? Now look over their life so has it panned out for them? Most likely exactly as they feel and predict it will always be. I certainly know of people like this and can see a pattern.

I base my belief in this on observation and personal experience. I was once in a place mentally where all I could see and feel was despair; this continued for 10 years. My life was exactly as I expected, unhappy and I felt angry for those years. It was only when one day I stopped in my tracks and thought about what I DID have to be grateful for that it all changed. My perception and perspective changed positively and from that day on; my life never went back to those awful years, I found positivity and my outlook changed everything, my reality became happy. I didn’t inherit money, win the lottery or have my life’s bad experiences erased; I changed my perspective that’s all.

A person’s whole view of the world can be altered just by a shift in thinking. A person’s whole life experience can be altered just by a shift in thinking. A person’s being; their feeling and consciousness can be altered just by a shift in thinking.

Think Positively and keep your mind open!!!

      Well done.. Absolutely love the way you closed the whole hub - the last Paragraph and closing sentence says it all. Re-frame a picture and it changes the way it looks, change your thinking and the world changes.
