Thoughts Are Things

on October 12, 2010

Have you ever taken an inventory of your life?  You know, sat back and went over each event, how you feel or felt about that event and then filed it away or released it if it no longer serves you?  Your mind is like a filing cabinet for your life with each memory put in a file such as fun, educational, nostalgic, scary, painful, etc. and each one has a label such as good, bad, desirable, undesirable, forbidden, brag about it.   Does this really serve you?  How can I know that I do this?

Look around you right now, what do you see?  Is your desk cluttered, organized, dirty, clean, etc.?  The items you surround yourself with are metaphorical for your thoughts.  The mind actually exists in the space around our bodies, not in the brain as previously thought.  How can this be?  It is quite simple, just consider brain injury.  How can a person function with only half a brain or with a physical brain injury?  ( I have met a person with only half their brain, so I know this is possible) They can do so because the mind is not in the brain but around the brain like a field.  Yes, the brain injury will distort the field, but the mind functions anyway and through the most amazing trauma.  Now that you have a vision of your mind being a field that surrounds you (not just your brain, but the entire body) consider the metaphorical aspect of the objects in your life. 

How you live, the level of cleanliness and order is a mirror or metaphor for the thoughts in your mind.  A cluttered desk, house, car, or body reflects the state of your mind!  The level of cleanliness does too.  If you want to know how you are doing just look at your life.  All that you see is a reflection of your thoughts!  This is YOUR life, and it comes from YOUR thoughts.  There is no separation from your thoughts and those thoughts become things in your life!  How else could you experience your thoughts?

The beauty of this is that you have a choice about what you do with these thoughts and/or things.  Cleaning is a way of removing unwanted thoughts.  Organizing and filing is a method of putting your thoughts where they will serve you best.  So when you are going through your car, house, garden, closet, etc., ask yourself, Is this serving me? If so, How? What do I want to do with it?  It is sort of like weeding the garden, you pick out the ones you do not want and toss them away.  When you clean anything, you are focusing on the object (thought) at hand and making it shiny and attractive (giving it energy).  You are actually giving that object permission to exist in your life and in some cases forgiving yourself for creating it in the first place.  I speak here of cleaning up after your loved ones, children, pets, spouse, or even yourself. 

Whatever you focus your energy on grows.  This is the Law of Attraction.  The thoughts you have about anything actually take form when given enough energy!  This will work in your favor if you apply it with conscious effort, but when left to the Universe your life will become cluttered with unwanted things that will actually weigh you down and create difficulties for you.  The purpose behind Spring Cleaning and Fall Cleaning is just that, to clear these unwanted thoughts out of your life, to organize the ones you would like to keep and to focus on what you wish to create more of in your life.
