I’ve been thinking about this concept lately, and wondering about its validity.
I get that if you have a dismal outlook and expect the worst in all things, then yes, you are, in a sense, creating that reality because you are looking at life with muddy glasses. But does that mean you’ve “created” that life?
That’s a lot of pressure to put on people, don’t you think? It gives the feeling that you should monitor your every thought because if you’re not always only thinking positive, cheerful, manifesting thoughts, then you yourself have created that extra bill, the car accident, the unexpected doctor visit.
Really? So negative thoughts caused a child’s cancer? I don’t buy that.
Look, I work with energy and I know how it can help a person release stuck emotions and issues, but I still have trouble with the concept that we are the masters of our own fate so such a degree that every thought means something. Sometimes a thought is just a thought, isn’t it? As Jessica Dore wrote below, “Every thought is not a message”, which I love. And if that’s true, then doesn’t it stand that every thought also isn’t a building block in our life?*
There’s a situation that has been going in my life for three years now. Yes, I think about it daily because it’s an almost daily occurrence (boy, I can’t spell that word!). Most days it happens, and then some days there’s a reprieve. If I’m thinking about it every single day, how is it that there are days when it doesn’t happen? I’m never thinking positively about it, because it’s something i wish would stop and it doesn’t look like it’s going to, meaning there’s a LOT of negative energy that I focus on the situation…so why isn’t it a 7 days a week/52 weeks a year event?
This is the stuff that keeps me up at night.
What are your thoughts about it?
