Every single physical thing we encounter began with a thought.
In other words: thoughts become things.
But the concept of ‘thoughts becoming things’ isn’t easily explained…especially scientifically. Mainly because in science, there’s a method used to determine what is ‘scientific’
Wikipedia describes science as a system of acquiring knowledge based on the scientific method, as well as to the organized body of knowledge gained through such research.
So the challenge here is that thought becoming things can’t be proven using a scientific method for one simple reason:
We can’t tell what someone is thinking.
We have the technology to tell WHEN someone is thinking, but not WHAT.
However on the other hand, here’s the definition of Applied Science: the exact science of applying knowledge from one or more natural scientific fields to practical problems.
So looking at the APPLIED principle here we can ‘apply’ a scientific formula for the equation of ‘thought becoming things’.
This could potentially be represented by this formula: T=t
(“T” being thought, and “t” representing the physical manifestatio n of the thought) However, that’s not the whole equation.
The initial thought, backed with belief, leads to the words we say, which leads to the ACTIONS we take, which leads to the manifestation of the things we see in our physical reality. The better equation would be:
Here’s an example of how a thought can become a physical thing: Take the phonograph – There once was an idea that sound could be recorded and then listened to at a later time; just as text could be written and read at a later time. That concept sparked Thomas Edison to think about how the human voice could be recorded and played back. The belief that it could be done reinforced this thoughts. That led to the words and actions required to create such a device. Voila . . . the advent of the phonograph (the thing).
I’m sure there were many, many experiments and activities that went on throughout the duration of Edison inventing the phonograph. Yet the fact still remains: it began with thought.
His thought became a thing.
However, action (A) is a BIG part of this equation. Without it…the equation is out of balance and doesn’t work. So no matter how hard you think, how hard you believe, how much you talk…there is still action required to manifest the things you want in your life…even if that action is merely ‘receiving’ the thing you’ve asked for.
So, what can you take away from this: Regardless if you believe in the Law Of Attraction, this principle works and it’s real.
No, the formula I’ve presented to you isn’t a ‘real’ scientific formula, but it’s as close as we can get until we can scientifically read people’s minds.
1. Know that the Law Of Attraction works all the time, every time: What you think about, you bring about.
2. Be as conscious as possible about what you’re thinking.
We have over 60,000 thoughts per day so you can’t write each one, but try this for a day or two: At the top of every hour, stop and write down if your predominant thoughts were positive or negative. If they were negative, write down as many of the negative things you were thinking as you can remember and ask yourself “why am I thinking about _____” – Are they worries, fears, etc.
If they’re positive, write down as many as you can remember and keep them close to refer to them as often as possible.
Remember, your thoughts are like magnets, pulling the things you think about towards you…whether you want them to or not.
As I always say,
Control your thoughts….they control your future.
