[What did I learn today? Lessons on the Journey to Unconditional Self Love] What's inside manifests outside.

"Thought is the real causative force in life, and there is no other. You
cannot have one kind of mind and another kind of environment" Emmet Fox

What were you thinking?? Have you heard that before? Especially when you do
something not so smart? What on earth were you thinking? This now means a whole other thing to me, it is no longer a "buff" as we
call it where I'm from or a scolding! One of the best thing a woman told me on my travels is "stand guard at the
door of your mind" She explained to me that my mind is one of the most powerful tools that I
have and its not a free for all where anything and everything can enter and
take up residence because what is in my mind will manifest in my life! For
me it was like a kind of aha moment and an indication that I was thinking
thoughts that need to be reigned in and redirected!

I tested it out and it works! Listen, I focused on a few things and thought
with action behind it and it manifested itself in my life! And when I get
slack and lapse and open it up to any and everything my life reflected to
me "hey hey hey, what are you thinking??" so , some thoughts that come into
my mind, particularly the negative ones, I let them pass, they come I watch
them and I let them go, the judgmental ones same thing! passing through,
not sticking around for lunch and dinner the ones that are positive and
forward moving I ask them in for a chat!

Thinking positive does not mean failing to plan for things that can go
wrong and take necessary action to mitigate it. It also does not mean being
blind to what is not working

It means that you know that you are ok and will be ok, its lessons or

Positive thinking is a way of sending direct messages to the Universe
saying what you want is important and sacred to you.

So what you feed your body, that goes inside your body, manifests itself in
how you look on the outside

So what you feed your mind will manifests itself in how your life looks! It
really is just that simple! You look haggard and tired and crappy, what's
in your mind? What are you thinking!

Catch that!
