You’ve probably heard this before. Thoughts become things. Maybe you agree with that statement. Maybe you don’t. I have been thinking about those three words and feel there is a lot of truth in them.
Our capacity to think is at heart the magic we all inherently share. Thinking is a creative action and the imagination is the playground of the magical spirit.
Back in the spring I wrote and posted something similar to this: Live Your Bliss
How does what we think become the things we think about?
Since I’m no scientist or psychologist, all I can say is that it has happened in my personal life, time and again. I put my mind on something, feed it energy and enthusiasm, and in time – poof – it manifests in the waking world.
Is this in anyway like that book about some mysterious secret?
Yes and no.
The “no” answer is simply this. Wishing doesn’t make things happen. You can’t just sit around wishing for a fairy godmother to come along, whipping out her wand and booping you on the forehead as she lavishes you with your every wish. No, it really doesn’t work that way, even though that certainly sounds like fun.
The “yes” answer is this one truth. It takes work to manifest things in your life, and that work begins with a thought. It’s what we do with the thought once we’ve thought it that makes things shift in your life. First you have a thought, then you create a plan of action with suitable steps that will take you from here to there. The next thing to be done is to work the steps.
Yes, I said work.
The Law of Attraction does indeed work, but there is work in doing the work. You must work to have the fruits of work. And those fruits are the original thoughts that flowed through your consciousness.
I’m sure you can look back on your own life to see where your thoughts became things. Think about something you wanted, something you strived to achieve. Was this an easy thing to do? Probably not. Was it worth it? Absolutely.
Anything you think can become a thing. It can be as simple or as complicated as you want it to be.
I can look back on my life and see the many things that have come to be because I thought about them, worked a plan, then watched the hoped-for result emerge. Doing the work can be exhilarating. What is required is the stamina to see it through.
It’s work, but work well done is a reward well earned.
What do you wish to have in your life? Think about your wants, create a plan, then work the steps until your thoughts become things. That is the secret behind the secret.
Now you know.
