“If you realized how powerful your thoughts are, you would never think a negative thought.” Anonymous

By John Preiss

It is amazing how the brain works. The power of the mind is amazing. It can convince you of feeling a certain way when you really are not feeling that way. I love the part when you close your eyes and remove the sludge from your mind, if that is possible, and just think of something beautiful and let it take you there. The wonder of the mind is amazing. I seen many who have had serious health issues overcome them with the power of the mind and the strong will that they will overcome adversity no matter what it might be. This is a great development because are thoughts control many aspects of our lives both positive and negative. We all have been on both sides of the fence.

When we create negative thoughts our minds wander in areas that are not good for our bodies and our souls. We tend to look down on others especially ourselves. It causes anxiety, depression and a lack of physical upkeep. It tears a hole in our happiness and could lead us to a path of drugs, alcoholism and even suicide. Sometimes this negativity is caused by toxic people. If so, toxic people must be eliminated from our lives even if it is a family member or someone we love. Remember, you can still be nice, Pray for someone and love them. This doesn’t mean you are obligated to associate with them on a more intimate level. Safeguard yourself from these situations.

When positive thoughts and created within yourself happiness will become more evident. Positive people tend to be more productive in life. They also are more charitable and are able to give to others. Focus on the positive situations in your life and build on them. I know we can’t be happy and positive every minute of the day. We live in a difficult society. Prayer and your spiritual life can also help induce positive energy.

Ask yourself, “What do I think about the most? You become what you think you are. Don’t underestimate the power of the mind.
