Have you ever heard the statement, “Thoughts are things?” Many people say these words without consciously realizing just what the meaning of the statement really is.

Our thoughts ARE energy and they are as real as the vibration of light, heat, magnetism, sound and electricity. When we think, we send out vibrations of energy. These vibrations are not evident to our five physical senses but that does not mean that they do not exist.

Example: a magnet has the ability to send out vibrations to attract to itself a piece of steel. We can’t see, taste, smell, hear or feel the mighty force but we know it works. Our thought vibrations, likewise, cannot be seen, tasted, smelled, heard nor felt by the majority of people. (Some healers, psychics and sensitive people can - but that’s another article!)

Over a hundred years ago, in the medicine field, doctors and midwives didn’t know that dirty hands spread disease. When they were first told that cleaning their hands was important, many scoffed in disbelief! They couldn’t see the germs therefore they didn’t believe that their unwashed hands had the power to do harm. Because we cannot see, smell, taste or touch our thought vibrations it is no proof that they do not exist. When we come to the realization that our thoughts are a creative energy, having a magnet-like power of attraction, we will begin to understand how our powerful creative energy, our thoughts, enables us to design our lives which ultimately leads to personal empowerment.

It’s time to become responsible for the mighty thought law – The Law of Attraction. This law is very powerful and is always at work drawing to us the things we desire or fear, set into motion by the very thoughts that we think. It draws to us the positive and the negative. There is no exception to this rule. What you think, you will create in your life. This law is not new nor is it a secret. It has been in effect since the beginning of man and when we understand this law we will be able to use it in our daily lives to create positive life experiences, creating the life of our dreams.

We send out thoughts all the time, and we are reaping the results of such thoughts. Not only do our thought waves influence ourselves and others, but they have a drawing power – they attract/magnetize to us the thoughts of others, things, circumstances and people in accordance with the type of thought that is most in our minds.

Thoughts of love will attract to us the love of others; circumstances and surroundings in accordance with the love thought; people who are of like thought. Thoughts of anger, hate, envy, malice and jealously will draw to us similar thoughts emanating from the minds of others; circumstances and surroundings in accordance with these vile thoughts, we will receive them in turn from others; people who will manifest inharmony; and so on.

Like attracts like in the thought world – as ye sow so shall ye reap. Birds of a feather flock together in the thought world – curses like chickens come home to roost, and bringing their friends with them! This matter of thought attraction is a very serious one. When you stop to think of it you will see that we really make our own surroundings, although some of us tend to blame others for it. We attract to us the thoughts of others that hold the same order of thought and we create our lives according to our thought and the thoughts of others influence how we create our lives.

If we think success and positive thoughts will be able to get into tune with the minds of other people thinking success and positive thoughts, therefore allowing us to create our lives in a successful way. Just as easily, if we allow our minds to dwell constantly upon thoughts of failure and negativity we will bring ourselves into close touch with the minds of other “failure” people, and each will tend to pull the other down still more. You are the company you keep! Therefore we would create our lives in a negative and unsuccessful way. If a person thinks that everything is evil and negative, they will see and experience much evil and negativity, and will be brought into contact with others who will inevitably prove them right. The law of attraction knows no boundaries! And the person who looks for good in everything and everybody will be likely to attract to themselves the things and people corresponding to their thought process.

We generally see what we are looking for or what we believe in.

The mind has many levels, ranging from the highest positive level of thought to the lowest negative level of thought, with many levels of thought in between, varying in degree according to the difference in positive and negative thought extremes.

When your mind is operating along positive levels you feel strong, buoyant, bright, cheerful, happy, confident and courageous, and are enabled to do your work well, to carry out your intentions, and progress on your road to success. You send out strong positive thought, which affects others and causes them to co-operate with you or to follow your lead, according to their own mental level.

When you are playing on the extreme negative end of the mental level you feel depressed, weak, passive, dull, fearful, and cowardly. And you find yourself unable to make progress or to succeed. And your effect upon others is practically nil. You are led by, giving your power away, rather than leading others. You are very dis-empowered.

But remember you possess the power to raise the level of your mind to a positive level. You are not destined to attract negative experiences! You have the ability to change your thought process allowing you to empower yourself. It is simply a matter of learning new techniques that you were never taught. Do not allow yourself to be affected by the adverse and negative thoughts of those around you. Move your thoughts up to a high positive level away from the vibrations of those on the lower planes of thought.

You have the power to build up your mind and make it what you want. In fact, we are mind-building every second of our lives, either consciously or unconsciously. The majority of people are doing the work unconsciously, but those who understand the mechanics and workings of the law of attraction have taken the matter in hand and have become conscious creators of their own mentality, their own reality. They are no longer subject to the suggestions and influences of others but have become masters of themselves.

The Key to Self-Mastery is within! And the time to begin re-establishing order in your mental kingdom is NOW. I invite you to remember the power within, learn and master the lost secrets, raise your thoughts and create the life of your dreams!
