Can You Become Conscious of Your 50-70,000 Thoughts a Day?

We think 50,000 to 70,000 thoughts per day.

And approximately 90% of those thoughts are the same as yesterday…

You see our brain wants to help us.

It wants to make our life as easy as possible for us.

So what the brain does to help us and make our life more manageable, is it creates nice neural pathways in our brain that allow us to go into “auto-pilot” mode.

(Auto-pilot mode so we don’t have to think of everything all the time).

This is how habits are created.

You cross your hands a certain way without having to think.

“Yeah, that’s right I put this right arm over that left arm and then I lean them back into my solar plexus area”.

No.

You don’t need to bother consciously thinking about this.

The neural pathway is set and you cross your hands automatically… and most of the time… without noticing.

This is the same for our thoughts.

The neural pathway is set and you just thought something negatively on automatic mode… without noticing it.

This is why you feel good or bad sometimes for no apparent reason.

Nothing good actually came into your life.

You didn’t win on the pokies, you didn’t get a job promotion, you didn’t narrowly miss a parking fine.

And nothing bad actually came into your life.

Your dog didn’t die, your girlfriend didn’t dump you, you didn’t sit on a thumb tack.

But you now feel good or bad because of your subconscious thoughts that have led you that way.

This is why we sometimes have “bad days” for no apparent reason and “good days” for no apparent reason.

The key to achieving more happiness in life and having more good days then bad, is by becoming more aware of A.N.Ts

Automatic.

Negative.

Thoughts.

When you become aware of what you are actually saying to yourself in your mind you begin to take back control over your life.

You retain the steering wheel to your ship.

How do you become aware of what you are thinking?

Well, meditation helps.

Staying in the moment helps.

Or 3 minute interval alarms on your phone help. (What I do haha).

Become more aware and the negative thoughts lose their power.

As you become more aware you see them for what they really are.

Imaginations of the mind.

You are not a fortune teller.

You cannot tell the future.

But you can aim yourself toward a desired future via your conscious thought actions.

Become aware.

What do you choose to think?

Is Music Making You Unhappy?

Is music making you unhappy?

“Kill this bitch, steal this girl, coke, dope, smack and crack”.

My ears love the sound hip hop music gives to me.

But then again, if I was to do some cocaine I’m sure my body would love the feeling of that too…

Now, some hip hop music can be light and uplifting, but some hip hop music can be harsh and angry.

My question today is, can music change your vibration and make you feel different on the inside?

I used to listen to Metallica when I was younger.

And other bands that played angry styled music like KoRn, Slipknot, Disturbed etc. etc.

Did this angry styled music have an effect on me?

I believe it very well did.

As an artist goes deep into a certain state of emotion to create a certain piece of music, I believe that their creation is welded together with their emotions, and when listened to by the audience, it is carried through and effects them.

The emotions of that artist are transmuted into their voice and instruments, creating a musical piece that vibrates either positively or negatively.

Which you, as the audience, then listen to and are influenced by.

Does happy music make you feel happy? Does sad music make you feel sad? Does angry music make you feel angry?

Did you know we are made up of 75% water?

I remember seeing this video on Youtube where this Japanese scientist played different kinds of music to water in test tubes. He then looked at each sample of water’s molecules under a microscope to see if there were any changes.

The results were amazing…

The angry metal music made the water molecules look all chopped and harsh, while the classical music made the molecules look like clean, cut snowflakes.

Which is nuts if you think about it.

Next time you listen to music, talk to yourself, listen to your intuition.

Does this song make me feel anxious? Does this song make me feel sad? Does this song make me feel better?

Don’t choose a song that you think will make you feel better, listen to a song and see if it makes you feel better.

You may just need a song that helps you travel up the emotional scale.

The Emotional Scale:

1. Joy/Appreciation/Empowered/Freedom/Love
2. Passion
3. Enthusiasm/Eagerness/Happiness
4. Positive Expectation/Belief
5. Optimism
6. Hopefulness
7. Contentment
8. Boredom
9. Pessimism
10. Frustration/Irritation/Impatience
11. Overwhelment
12. Disappointment
13. Doubt
14. Worry
15. Blame
16. Discouragement
17. Anger
18. Revenge
19. Hatred/Rage
20. Jealousy
21. Insecurity/Guilt/Unworthiness
22. Fear/Grief/Depression/Despair/Powerlessness

Going from a fearful state all the way up to a state of joy may be too far a jump – that is why I say go with what feels right.

You may need to go from hopefulness to get to optimism and so on and so on.

Go with what feels right, you will know because you can feel it.

Best of luck and happy listening 🙂

PS. If anyone’s interested, here is the short video on the results of the water experiment I spoke about earlier. The full documentary is quite interesting and can also be found on Youtube.

And here is another video of Abraham teaching about the power of music and vibration. I cannot find the specific video I wanted to share, but this video seems extremely similar in it’s teaching and may even be better:

Leaving Cues of Excitement Around the House

When you spend money and buy something new and your excited about it…

KEEP IT NEAR YOU AND ENJOY THAT EXCITEMENT.

There is nothing wrong with buying new things and keeping them around you.

Recently I bought two decks of daily affirmation cards.

And I was fucken pumped the fuck up that I bought them.

Now, I had the option to leave them in a drawer and get them out once a day to do my affirmation…

But I thought.. fuck that.

I’m gonna leave these babies out in the open of my room, so that every time I see them I feel good that these 2 new products are a part of my life.

If you’re like me and you believe in the Law of Attraction (LOA), leaving nice cues like this around the house can only benefit you.

And even if you don’t believe in the LOA, leaving cues like this around this house will at least make you happy when you see them :).

And there’s nothing wrong with that.

Here are the cards I bought, which can be purchased through Amazon via clicking on the images:
