I’ve talked before about how many thoughts we have in a day. Researchers estimate that we have 40,000 – 70,000 thoughts every single day. As we go through our day having these thousands of thoughts, we don’t question them. We just believe whatever the thoughts are.
Believing all of our thoughts gives them a lot of power. They can make us feel good or bad, helpful or helpless, bright or glum.
One of the ways to manage the power of our thoughts is to focus on positivity.
An unknown author explains it perfectly:
Your mind will always believe everything you tell it.
Feed it faith.
Feed it truth.
Feed it with love.
Reverend Billy Graham and the Law of Attraction
Reverend Billy Graham was a Southern Baptist minister and American evangelist. In the 1940s he became known internationally and traveled worldwide to preach. He said once that he didn’t really know if there is an afterlife, but that he chose to believe that there is one. He chose to have faith in an afterlife, and that influenced his actions. Your mind will believe the faith that you feed it.
This quote makes me think of the law of attraction. The law of attraction says that the energy you put out into the world is the energy you’ll get back. Energy is a powerful part of the Quadrants of Wellbeing. We can choose the energy that we put into the world, and choosing positive thoughts and intentions is the first step.
When we feed our mind faith, truth, and love that will be the energy that we have, and the energy we attract. Reverend Graham fed his mind with faith, he acted with faith, and attracted the positive energy of faith. We can also attract positive energy when we feed our minds good food like faith, truth, and love.
