Mind blowing!

Psychology (the study of the mind) is a growing area and one which all of us can benefit from as we become more aware of it.  For many the power of their mind is irrelevant to them, Homer here is a great example! Yet the consequences of not tapping into that information are huge.  Our minds have the power to shape our future and happiness, negatively or positively.  Without consciously tapping into the psychological vitality we possess, we often hop on the ‘negativity’ bus hoping we will end up at the ‘positive’ bus station.  This rarely happens.

Like any law or principal, there is only one outcome.  Think for a moment about the law of gravity- what goes up must come down.  ‘The Secret’ talks at length about the law of attraction. In essence, the signals we give out with our heart and our mind are the people and events we attract back.  If we live with a negative attitude, then that’s what we will get- negativity and poverty in every sense of the word.  However, if we generate positive thinking we will attract a plethora of wealth in every way.  Sounds too simple to be true?  Believe me, it’s not.  As already explained, with any law there is only one outcome.  The power of your mind will attract negative or positive, bad or good, sadness or happiness.

Another way to look at the power of the mind is with the biblical saying ‘you reap what you sow’.  This is another law of nature.  It is impossible to plant a sunflower seed and reap a harvest of potatoes!  Likewise, you cannot sow anger, resentment or jealousy and reap joy, peace and fulfillment.  It simply will not happen.  Sow a lifetime of kindness, compassion and inner strength and you will reap character, meaningful relationships and joy.

The same principal is also true in areas of confidence, self belief and self acceptance for example.  How many of us repeatedly tell ourselves negative statements like ‘I’ll never be any good at… girls like me don’t… I’ll never be rich…Sandra’s better than me… and so on.  This is sowing the very opposite to what we actually want.  How often do we mentally and verbally confess the outcome we do not want and then proudly announce ‘I told you that would happen’ when it has occurred!  A simple case of reaping and sowing or attracting what our minds have focused on.

It is interesting to note that there are physical aspects to our psychology.  The amygdala, which is part of the brain, is responsible for generating negative emotions.  It is vital that this part of the brain is subdued if positive thoughts are to exist.  This can be done by actively focusing on pleasurable or positive thoughts.  Also, by physically keeping busy the amygdala is kept quiet.

In order to change the outcome to what we do want, it is essential that we consciously and subconsciously focus on the direction we want to go.  Remember that the mind is rather like an iceberg with the larger subconscious operating under the ‘water’, without us even thinking about it. Our minds, in harmony with our heart and soul must be channeled to work for us, not against.  Only then can we achieve mind blowing results.

Here are 7 proven techniques to help you strengthen your mind to achieve the results you want:

1. Focus on what you want, not on what you don’t.  The more you think about what you don’t want, the more you will be attracted towards it. E.g. Donkey in Shrek ‘don’t look down’.  Be like the formula one racing car drivers who keep focused on the track ahead.

2. Lock onto all that you desire for your life and lock out anything that stands in the way.

3. Employ positive confessions.  By positively confessing, mentally and verbally your preferred outcome (and the associated emotions), you will strengthen the pull towards it.

4. Be everything you want to attract in others.  The law of attraction states that they will come to you.

5. Visualise your desired outcomes.  This is an incredibly powerful tool to harness the dynamic effectiveness of the mind.

6. Surround yourself with those people and things that create a positive/ creative/peaceful (etc) influence on your life.

7.  Adopt values which enhance your life and that of others e.g. holding an attitude of gratitude.
