Have you ever heard that the thoughts you think directly impact the results you get in life? There are dozens of quotes circulating that point to that truth. I love reading them because not only do they highlight and confirm a universal truth, but they also show how long historically thoughts about thought have been thought! Here are a few of my favorites:
· “A man is but the product of his thoughts what he thinks, he becomes” – Mahatma Gandhi
· “As a single footstep will not make a path on the earth, so a single thought will not make a pathway in the mind. To make a deep physical path, we walk again and again. To make a deep mental path, we must think over and over the kind of thoughts we wish to dominate our lives” – Henry David Thoreau
· “Man, alone, has the power to transform his thoughts into physical reality; man, alone, can dream and make his dreams come true” – Napoleon Hill
· “Anything you can imagine you can make real” – Jules Verne
· “As someone thinks within himself, so he is” – Proverbs 23:7
So, assuming the truth of the matter, that your thoughts make your life what it will be, if you are a person who thinks good things are going to happen, then good things are more likely to show up. If you are a person who always sees the negative in everything, you probably have some more negative stuff coming your way.
What if you are a person who truly wants a great life, filled with great successes, experiences and people, but you are plagued by a history of negativity and negative thought? What if you are an overweight person who truly believes there is no possibility for living in a healthy body? You know the answer, right? As long as those are your thoughts, you likely won’t have very much success overcoming your weight loss challenges. The good news is that it’s possible to recondition your brain to think great thoughts, and one option for reconditioning your brain is with the use of meditation and meditation mantras.
Meditation is an excellent tool to help shift your mindset on any issue, including health and weight loss. As you focus during meditation, the brain is much more susceptible to new and improved thoughts such as solutions, positivity, and goal achievement. With the help of meditation, people can learn to better control their thought processes and improve their concentration.
The development of meditation mantras, which can also be read during the course of your normal day, can aid in the process of shifting your mindset through meditation. For example, repeating the mantra “I am a person committed to regular exercise and a healthy lifestyle” or “I only desire healthy and nutritious foods” or “I love every cell of my body” may sound completely untrue the first time you whisper it to yourself, but in time and with focus and concentration through meditation, your brain will come to believe it, your paradigm will shift, and you will have come a long from a previous mindset such as “I will never be able to lose this weight!” Meditating on empowering thoughts for just 15 minutes a day can result in a tremendous shift.
Why not give positive thinking a try and figure out for yourself if history’s greatest thinkers were on to something when they said the results we get in life start with our thoughts? I challenge you to develop 10 meditation mantras that are positively stated and meaningful to your goals and spend no less than 15 minutes each day repeating those mantras in a meditative state.
