My 2 hour morning commute gives me a lot of time and opportunity to dig deep in my thoughts and get still to receive God’s most important messages.Those, which I then offer/share with my readers/ fellow peace seekers & peace keepers, friends, family and even strangers).
One morning, while I was driving en-route to work, something came to me. Like an epiphany, while I was in deep, still thought I was thinking about how we manifest things in our lives. It hit me! We manifest what we think and what we speak. There are often times when we think that our thoughts don’t harm others or ourselves, but I don’t believe that’s true. Often times, even with the greatest of intentions, if we speak negative (whether what we are saying are opinions or facts) we are less likely to see a positive outcome. It happens all the time.
For example, people often justify saying something negative by defending themselves with the “but it’s true” response. News pundits do this a lot. You can find yourself scrolling past CNN, FOX, NBC, or the others and you’ll often see journalists, guests, and experts speaking on the worst case scenarios over and over again of possible negative outcomes. Whether we want to believe it or not, it breeds fear into the subconscious of us, if we aren’t careful.
You may also find the same people saying things like: “More people are gonna get killed; it’s going to get worse,” in reference to the spike of police killings of black men our country and the and protests that have continued as a result. You might even hear something like, “Sooner or later, someone’s gonna get hurt. It’s gonna get out of control.” Have you found yourself agreeing, saying or even thinking those things?
I’m a firm believer that If we were all more cognizant of our thoughts and words before we speak them, there would be more positivity manifesting around us. We’d then be less likely to see negative outcomes in our lives and around us in the world. All it takes is to remember and internalize that we are the words we speak. We are the thoughts we think. We manifest what we speak and we manifest what we think.
We all know someone who lives in such a fear that they are thinking about every worse thing that can happen in every moment of their day, but we must do whatever we can to change this. We have to choose this and it has to be a conscious decision.
Personally, I choose to believe that the best can happen and that the best is possible. I’m sure that there is a possibility for “worse” things to happen based on what’s been happening in the world, but I choose not to speak those things. I’m only going to speak things that give light, peace, and comfort to people and the world. Imagine what could happen if we all did this…
