Author Napoleon Hill’s bestselling book, Think and Grow Rich, has changed the lives of millions of people around the world since it was written back in 1937.
Our thoughts create our realities. Every thought we think is a force of energy. It’s a spurt of energy into the universe.
The Law of Attraction is The Great law of The Universe
The law of attraction is the great law of the universe. Everything going on in your life, you attract them by your internal thoughts: Your job, your debt, your home, your car, your health, the people in your life and all the problems that follow you wherever you go.
You are attracting them by your internal thoughts because they represent frequencies that go out into the universe and attract like thoughts.
State exactly what it is that you desire and begin with: I am so happy and grateful now that I have the perfect job, now that I have the perfect mate, now that… – whatever it is – and take action towards that goal. You have to emit the feelings that you deserve and already have whatever it is that you desire.
We are amazing Vibrational Frequencies
We are amazing vibrational frequencies, our thoughts, our emotions, our imaginations. We feel. These feelings are real, and they actually affect each other.Think of yourself as a transmitter. We’re all transmitters and we’re all receivers. So, whenever you’re thinking a thought, you’re transmitting something, an energy, a frequency out into the environment, into the ethers, into the universe even.
You know, let’s start with just you and the people in your life. You have feelings for them. You notice how your feelings towards them affects them. You can look at a complete stranger and they project hate towards you and it affects you.
The opposite of that, when love is projected, you meet someone with a smile. Love and compassion are projected through their eyes and it affects you.
Your dominant thoughts, feelings and emotions are vibrations that go out into the universe and attract similar vibrations. If they are negative, then you are sending negative vibrations out into the universe and the universe must return more negative experiences and thoughts into your life.
On the other hand, if your dominant thoughts, feelings, and emotions are positive, then you are sending out positive vibrations out into the universe and the universe will return more positive experiences and thoughts into your life.
Thoughts Become Our Reality
It’s not just about what we speak, it’s about what we think because it all starts with a thought. And the thought becomes what we do and what we speak, and that, sort of creates our karma.
So, what does that mean? That means we have to be on guard, that everything we look at, listen to, whatever we take into our senses can actually affect us at a subconscious level that we’re not even conscious of.
People think opposites attract. It’s really like attracts like. So, if you think positive thoughts, you’re going to get more of what? Positive thoughts! But if you think negative thoughts, on the other hand, you’re going to reinforce that.
One of the laws of behavioral psychology says that you get more of what you reinforce. If you’re focusing on positive things and really good things, you’re going to get more of that and draw more of that into your experience.
We’re sending out a mechanism by which we’re going to attract something, a vibration that’s going to be in alignment with that and bring that into our experience.
Have you ever been in a situation when you’re feeling depressed, not feeling good about yourself and then you start thinking about it and you don’t know why you’re feeling that way?
The Subconscious Minds Harbors Our Internal Thoughts and Emotions
Well maybe, just maybe little subconscious messages have been coming in – whether it’s somebody’s tone of voice, whether you’re watching the news, or whether you’re reading the newspaper. Little things that really start attacking the subconscious mind.
And when the subconscious mind is programmed not to be successful, to be pessimistic because maybe things aren’t going right, it basically sends the information to the conscious mind, “let’s not do anything.”
Remember, in the end, it is your life. So, it is up to you to change your thoughts to what you want to attract into your life.
So be careful what you take into that brain of yours because the subconscious mind should be protected. Protected from negative information, from people around you who are trying to make you fail, trying to help you fail.
And again, be careful of what you read, the news, the media, they are all based on negativity. All they want to feed you is negativity.
That’s why it’s so important to cover and protect what you hear. Because what you hear goes in and becomes your own.
We could be just telling ourselves that there’s not enough or I can’t do it. We might tell ourselves, “I’m not smart enough. I’m not good enough or no one will listen to me.” Those are some of the disempowering beliefs.
Our thoughts, our feelings, and our emotions make a difference in every area of our lives because that’s what we’re comprised of. We’re really just energetic beings. Our thoughts, our feelings, all that manifest inside the human experience. We’re having the human experience.
But the goal is self-mastery. It’s really about self-awareness, self-management and self-mastery of our thoughts and our emotions. It’s been said that the one who masters himself, masters the world, and that starts with our thinking first and foremost, and then, of course, our feelings.
It’s important for us to understand that there are laws of the universe, first and foremost. It’s important for us to understand that we are here to participate, not only in those laws, but we can also participate in transforming those laws.
Let me give you an example, one of my classic ones. I often ask my students, “Can a piece of metal fly?” No, it cannot fly by itself, but if the mind acts with that piece of metal, transforms it, works both with the laws of gravity and with the laws of propulsion, that piece of metal can be transformed into a plane.
And it’s all based on first, the interior power from the mind to see something different from the raw material that is presented to it.
If you think of us as balls of energy that are touchable, anything that we speak creates a reverberation in the universe. And therefore, what we speak creates what happens.
Monitor The Messages In Our Music
The things that you hear in songs, especially songs that speak of pain, negativity, and hate, contain many messages that are really bad for us.
These messages sneak in on the beat. We’re listening and enjoying the music, ya, la la la, but those awful messages get to stay with us and they begin to color our perspective and they begin to change what we believe is OK, because we are becoming desensitized to certain messages.
Whenever we turn on the radio, we are then subject to whatever comes through the dial, whatever’s playing, we listen to it.
If we listen to messages that are negative, those negative messages become a part of us. If you notice, when you listen to a song, by the third stanza, you’ve learned the song, and can sing the song and can almost make that song your own. But guess what, those messages get to stay with you.
When it comes to artists, their messages match their lives, but it doesn’t mean that their messages match your life. If they want to write and sing about what their lifestyle is like and what it’s like to have different people, let’s say, it’s a man who is thinking about having women at his beck and call and having women who are doing all sorts of sexual acts in multiple groups, then, that may be his experience, but it doesn’t have to be your experience.
But as you listen to his experience, it becomes like your experience. It becomes something that you could understand. After all, you might enjoy that yourself one day, if you could, maybe you would, and maybe that’s something you might want to try, and maybe let’s see if it’ll work out for me the way it has worked out for him. It’s very subtle.
But his message and his experience have been transmitted through music. It can become yours, desensitizing you to all the different things that are said.
Even the lyrics that are degrading to women can become commonplace and ordinary and insignificant which matters because the relationships that you have and create are going to be the place that you play that out.
And it’s unfortunate that people you don’t know get to determine what you think and what you believe and what you’ll do. And they have ulterior motives, at times, for creating certain messages.
Beware of What We Input Into Our Children's Minds
When it comes to child development, everything the children see goes into their system and parks somewhere in their brain, somewhere in their system and finds its way into their character and into their lives.
Many video games are dangerous for child development
So, video games that are damaging or violent or crude have images of blood, guts and gore of fighting and shooting, all those messages desensitize the children.
And if the children have practiced this and put in hours and hours or fifteen hundred hours, they have experienced it so many times that they are immune to the true effects of killing, murdering, maiming and hurting. It is very important to be careful which artists they listen to and what lyrics they listen to.
Because whatever goes into their systems while they’re young and developing becomes a part of their character.
It is so important for you to monitor the messages that are regularly entering your mind. Your subconscious mind is like an innocent child. It takes in everything that is sent to it as true.
Once again, if you want to change your life, you must change something, and that begins by monitoring the information that you are processing regularly. Just because it is a part of your culture, it may not align with following your dream.Be mindful of the music you listen to, the movies and video games you watch, and the ideas that are entering your mind through the news media. Don’t believe everything you hear or read. The life that you now live is created by your past thoughts, feelings and actions.
Whatever you believe becomes true for you. Because whatever you believe, and whatever you’re allowing to operate in your life, you can look somewhere in your family and see somebody who does not believe it. And they are excelling.
