The constant stream of thoughts inside our head creates a lens through which we can see the world. The perspective we cultivate in our heads coats our tastebuds altering any flavor of life we are looking to experience.
The realm of our inner dialogue depicts much more than just how we may perceive taste, but how we actually perceive the world. Our thoughts even have a direct impact on our physical bodies.
This only scratches the surface of how changing your thoughts will change your world.
How Does This Work?
Manifesting Your Dreams
With the law of attraction in mind, your thoughts work similarly to the placebo effect. They create what it is you believe whether that’s positive or negative.
Science has proven with the Placebo effect that the mind can directly influence and heal the body miraculously. This can be applied to understanding the thoughts and feelings attached to them generate your physical world as well.
You can use techniques such as visualization to fine-tune and amplify the already powerful nature of your mind. Studies show that the brain does not register a difference between visualizations in the mind and real-life events.
Healing On a Physical Level
Negative self-talk and negative thinking takes its toll on the body. An informal study was done by IKEA on how plants reacted to being compliments versus bullied.
The experiment used two of the same plants with the same potting, light, and watering conditions. The only difference being the words they were given. The plant that was bullied began to wilt and look very unhealthy, while the plant that was complimented flourished vibrantly.
Optimistic thinking will actually help boost the immune system and lower blood pressure. As well as allow our bodies to shift into the parasympathetic nervous system when we need to rest and digest rather than staying in fight or flight mode that stressful thinking causes.
”Change your thoughts and you change your world.”Norman Vincent Peale
