Detox Your Mind

“A man is but the product of his thoughts what he thinks, he becomes.”

– Mahatma Gandhi

Worrying about lack of money and lack of things is the biggest waste of energy.

From the moment you open your eyes in the morning  to the moment you force them shut at night, poverty poisons your blood stream. Toxic amounts of delusional deprivation consumes energy that can be used far more creatively, for instance to create exactly the kind of life you want for yourself.

That we can create exactly the kind of life we want for ourselves is terrifying. Terrifying because it means that we are completely responsible for our lives and the way it has turned out. As much as I would liked to blame my poor state of living  on outside influences, on some “evil” that has it in for me, I’ve come to realize that this is victim mentality that will get me nowhere fast. I am where I am because I’ve chosen to remain stagnant in a poor state of mind.

We can create a great life or little life as the intensity of our desire is little or great. It was hard to accept the fact that each feeble thought and action that resulted from it is what caused my impoverished existence. Poor thinking got me poor living, but this simple notion works both ways.

That desire and focused thought-energy is the key to success is no secret. Extremely successful people have been using this simple notion for years to create the unimaginable. The moment I became aware that this inherent ability is available to everyone, I started taking my life into my own hands.  I resolved to stop stressing about a paycheck and instead find my purpose in life, live in harmony with who I am, create everyday, and trust that this is pretty much all it takes to live a rich, joyful, abundant life.

What do you want out life?

DreamKeeper

DreamKeeper

It is easy to get trapped in a poor state of mind, which is why I started a DreamKeeper box. It’s where I keep all my goals, desires, and dreams. It sounds childish, but the truth is when you goals are not written down they become fleeting thoughts at best. For me, the act of writing my goals down and inserting them into a tiny box is like reaching through a door into the Universe and releasing a burst of thought-energy.

I laugh a little every time I read the poem on the box, but I really like the idea of keeping your goals near and giving them care daily. What you give attention to everyday grows. So instead of giving your thought-energy away to your troubles, why not give them to your desires. Think rich, live rich.

    I love the idea of the DreamKeeper box! I’ve never heard of this before but I think it’s brilliant. And I don’t think it’s coincidental that it seems “childish” – really the best ideas are. I think when we try to be too “adult-like” we lose so much of the wonder and beauty of living. So embrace that DreamKeeper box…and I’ll have to create one of my own sometime soon! Thanks for the thought-provoking post

    I like the dream box idea, a place for my “dreams, goals” , I do have a jar that I put “positive” things in , things/people or something awesome 🙂 that have made me happy each day. I also try to think positively (hard to do sometimes) and it really does work!! Great post!

      A positivity jar, that’s so awesome Angie. Thinking positive sounds like a bunch of New Age mumbo jumbo, but it does make us feel better. I think for the sake of our health we should all try harder. Thanks for your comment.

    So true and yet I have so much trouble remembering it. Thank you for sharing and reminding me! This quote from you sums it up well – “What you give attention to everyday grows”.

      Steve, thank you for your comment. I have relapses sometimes myself, whenever sometime starts feeling off that’s when I know it’s time to refocus energies elsewhere.

    If you never write it down it never happen. Sometimes it is this pointing out the soul gives you to make sure it is going to be dominant over the mind. It then turns the tides.. It is a brilliant step in a positive light that always brings abundance. Cheers my friend! CK
