“Fear knocked at the door. Faith answered. And lo, no one was there.” ~Author Unknown
What a great quote! The human brain produces approximately 70,000 thoughts on an average day. That’s a lot of thoughts. When a thought enters into your mind, if it’s a good one, then you may want to keep it and develop that thought. If a thought enters into your mind that you do not want to keep, then simply replace it with one that is in harmony with your authentic self.
In reading Wayne Dyer’s book, “Wishes Fulfilled,” he gave an analogy regarding our thoughts, and when I read it, I learned how to choose the thoughts I wanted to keep and which thoughts I wanted to purge from my mind. I received direction on how to do this with clearness I had never experienced before.
His analogy was to look at your thoughts as if they are on a conveyor belt just passing by. When a thought enters into your mind, if it’s a good one, then you may want to keep it and develop that thought. If a thought enters into your mind that you do not want to keep, then simply put it back and pick up another one. I LOVE THAT!
When I began to implement this “conveyor belt” idea, when a random thought entered into my mind and I felt right away that it didn’t produce a positive vibration for me then I would say, “That’s not a thought I want to keep, I will put this one back and pick up another one… Yea, I like this one.” Then I would place my intention and my focus on that thought.
I encourage you to try the “conveyor belt” approach to your thoughts. This has been an excellent skill that I’ve developed which keeps me living in the house of faith.
With much love,
