Buddha said, ‘All that we are is the result of what we have thought.’
While it’s very true that thought is the foundation of all we manifest, there is more to add to this simple concept. First of all, thoughts are energy – creative energy. Each thought we think vibrates on a certain frequency. The frequency can either be in alignment with what we desire or out of alignment. When it’s out of alignment, we attract things we don’t want!
Thoughts are at the root of everything we create. Without thought, nothing would be created. So thought is the first step in the chain of events that create our reality, meaning the power to create comes from within us. Sometimes, we subconsciously sabotage the process. However, if that sounds a little scary, remember what the late Louise Hay says: ‘It is only a thought and a thought can be changed.’
Science has proven just how powerful the mind and the imagination actually is. For example, it has proven that the thoughts we think wear grooves in our brain. Every thought we think fires and wires neurological patterns in our brain. These patterns then determine how we see the world. As Dr Wayne Dyer puts it, ‘We don’t see the world as the world is, we see the world as we are.’ That means, if we think the same thoughts, we’ll only ever get the same results!
