So often I run into people that insist they have a "black cloud" following them. And they do! But when I try to explain to them that this cloud is a manifestation of their own doing, I get that look that says, "Yea, whatever crazy lady!". I started searching the internet to see if I could find some pointers for a better way to explain it to them and ran across an article called "The Energy of Thought" on a website called "The Teachings of Joshua". I was so impressed with how it was explained, I reached out and asked if I could put it on this blog. I didn't receive a response, so I hope they don't mind! Here it is! It's MAGICK!
"Physical reality is an energetic system. There are particles of energy all around you. These particles coalesce to create matter. Your thoughts are energy, your words are energy, and your actions are energy. You create manifestations through thoughts, words, and actions that use energy to form objects, conditions, and experiences. As you bring more energy to any thought, any conversation, and any action, you increase your powers of creation.
To radically change your approach to life you must come to understand how you operate in this energetic environment. Are you bringing energy to everything you do? Or, more likely, do you operate at lower levels of energy?
Energy moves at certain speeds. Low energy is slower, whereas high energy is faster. If you look at a substance like water, you can see that at lower energy levels, water takes the form of ice, and at higher energy levels, water takes the form of vapor. If you add energy to the ice, such as heat, the ice will transform into water and then into vapor. The addition of the energy creates the transformation. If you have been operating at lower energetic levels, you must add energy to every thought, word, and action in order to radically change your life.
Happiness is more energetic than sadness. Walking is more energetic than sitting. Smiling is more energetic than frowning. Passion is more energetic than apathy. Do you see how this system works? Can you understand how your current approach to life would be enhanced with the addition of energy? It is the energy in everything that forms creation in physical reality. You have the ability to reach for and attract more energy. It is a simple matter of focus.
Have you ever used a magnifying glass to burn a piece of paper? The magnifying glass focuses the energy of the sun into a concentrated beam of light that is many more times hotter and thus burns the paper. You have the ability to bring more energy into your life by the practice of focus. You can use the energy that is all around you to think more energetic thoughts. But it takes practice. The magnifying glass is designed to bring small objects into focus. You will have to practice this ability.
The first step is to practice bringing energy into your thoughts. What do we mean by this? The simplest explanation is for you to be aware of the current energetic level of your thoughts and then to replace those thoughts with higher-energy thoughts. This takes time and is not easy at first. It will take some concentration and a little effort. Your focus must be on the quality of thoughts you are thinking. Most of your thoughts are habitual. You obsess about the same things. When you purposely reach for high-energy thoughts, you radically change your habit of thought.
Let’s say you obsessively worry about paying your rent. From the moment you put the check in the mail, you worry about making the next payment. It’s a thirty-day-long habit of thought. You worry about what your landlord will think of you if you’re late. You worry about the shame of being evicted. You worry about losing your job or about all the other bills you also have to pay. These are familiar thoughts, but they are low-energy thoughts. Your work is to bring energy to your approach to thought.
To radically change your approach to thought, you must create a standard for thought. You will no longer accept low-energy thoughts. Your standard has been raised. You now feel for highenergy thoughts. Now, from your higher level of energy, you attract thoughts that support this new stance. When a thought of worry enters your mind, you reach for a powerful thought. When you think “How will I manage to pay the rent?” you reach for more energetic thoughts: “I will pay the rent. I always pay the rent. I have no problems paying the rent or meeting any other obligation.”
This is an example of a high-energy approach to thought. Oh, but we hear you say, “It isn’t accurate; it isn’t true. I always have trouble paying the rent. I always worry about the rent. I have been late many times. The rent is always a problem for me.”
The rent is a problem for you because of your low-energy approach to thinking. Your rent is an issue in your life because you allow low-energy thoughts to consume you. You must realize by now that your thinking creates your reality. Therefore, in order to change your reality to one you prefer, start thinking a new truth. The truth now is this: “The energy I’m bringing to my approach to thought creates a new energy in my life. My life is the result of my thoughts. My low-energy life will be improved through the practice and standards of a whole new approach to thinking. I will no longer tolerate low-energy thoughts. That is no longer my truth. That was the past and this new approach will create my future as I want it to be.”
