Since our lives are manifested by our thoughts, it’s important to be mindful of ‘cleaning’ our thoughts to achieve the goals we hold and the life we seek
Human beings have an exceptional mind. The mind manifests what we think about all day long. Everything we see on earth today that is man-made was first expressed in the mind.
The universe is governed by a set of laws and principles. Among them is the law of cause and effect. This law states that for every effect, there is a cause — whether known or unknown. Thoughts are causes and conditions are effects. It is difficult to alter the effects if you don’t look at the cause. Most people have failed to govern their own thoughts, and since it’s difficult for them to change the effects, they start thinking about fate, destiny and supernatural beings.
The mind creates thoughts related to the things we are passionate about and those we fear most. Generally, most people spend more time thinking about their feasr instead of their passions. As a result, they attract into their lives that which they never wanted to happen. A wise man controls his thoughts all the time; he does not allow his thoughts to control him.
As the popular saying goes, the mind is a great servant but a terrible master.
To control and clean your thoughts, you need to be conscious of what you are thinking. If your thought process is unconscious most of the time, you should not complain about attracting bad luck most of the time.
Yet, you can alter the trajectory of your life by ‘cleaning’ your thoughts.
Cleaning your thoughts removes myriad limitations in your daily life. When you do so, you’ll start to see life as a grand possibility and not a constant suffering. You’ll start doing things you never thought possible. Everyone wants a life filled with joy and pleasure, and this is only possible by starting with your thoughts. Once your thoughts are cleaned, you will start generating positive emotions and avoiding negative ones. You’ll begin surrounding yourself with people who think positive like you and attracting events into your life that will help you on your path — this is the magic that will unfold!
Mystics and hypnotics all over the world teach people how to control and clean their thoughts using several different strategies. Here are three ways to promote your own clean thoughts and achieve your goals:
1. Managing stress and experiences
It’s not easy to live a stress-free life. We feel pressured most of the time at work, school, or at home. Everybody expects something from us. Your boss expects you to complete your tasks quickly, and your family members expect to receive love and kindness from you. If their expectations are not met, we suffer immensely. Today, it’s not our enemies who are making us feel bad but rather our loved ones.
Living in such a world requires you to take complete control of your thoughts. If you don’t, you risk having your thoughts controlled by others…
Managing stress and poor experiences comes down to knowing what you can handle and what you can’t. There is no need to get stressed over something you can’t control. By the same token, often times you may have more control than you think. You may be able to research new solutions or connect with resources that can help.
Also, always strive to do your very best.. Performing tasks in an average way does not gain you anything. However, performing every task in an exceptional way will boost your confidence and generate positive emotions. Approaching every act in an exceptional and efficient way will create the best experiences in your life. The more exceptional your efforts — and experiences — on a daily basis, the more successful you’ll become. That’s when stress, anxiety, and depression become things of the past.
2. Change your environment
Your environment plays a huge role in molding your thoughts. This is evidenced by the fact that people living in certain geographical locations tend to have different values and beliefs from people living in other parts of the world. At times, cleaning your thoughts may require you to change your environment.
If you are constantly surrounded by people who see themselves as victims, not creators, it is more likely that you’ll follow the same pattern.
Human beings are social creatures. We always have a need to fit in with the people surrounding us. Negative people attract negative people. Positive people attract positive people. Sometimes, all we need to do to take control of our thoughts and lives is change our environment and the people we associate with on a daily basis.
In general, you should be associating with people you look up to — people who inspire you. You don’t want to seek help or advice from a person who is much more miserable than you. Associating with such people will pull you down like an anchor. Change your environment and start associating with people who can help you live a better life.
3. Change your activities
What do you do when things go haywire or even when you have downtime? Changing your daily activities is one of the best thought cleansing tools. A majority of people spend most of their time watching TV, surfing the internet, and compulsively using their mobile phones. And while there is a place for entertainment and digital connectivity, these are generally low vibration activities. Instead, consider higher vibration activities such as reading books, meditating, journaling, travelling, community service and exercising on a regular basis.
Understand that ALL of your activities impact your thought processes, so choose them carefully.
Before engaging in any activity, ask yourself why you want to engage in it. If you are spending countless hours watching TV, you could be having an underlying problem that you are avoiding or unwilling to confront. Successful people participate in activities that enable them to understand themselves better. Once you understand yourself, you’ll be more comfortable being yourself.
You can only change the effects in your life by altering your thoughts about your life. The three principles above will help you live a positive and a balanced life. Now it’s up to you!
