Today's Inspiration: Mind Over Matter

I've been reading a lot about the Law of Attraction, both in the book/movie The Secret and elsewhere so Today's Om is especially timely.

Culling Out The Weeds
Mind Over Matter

The power of the mind is a curious thing, because it is so powerful yet so difficult to control sometimes. We find ourselves thinking a certain way, knowing that this thought may be creating trouble for us yet we find it difficult to stop. For example, many people have the experience of getting sick at the same time every year or every time they go on a plane. They may even be aware that their beliefs impact their experiences, so continue to think they will get sick and then they do.

Sometimes we need to get sick in order to process something or move something through our bodies. But often we get sick, or feel exhausted, because we don’t make the effort to galvanize the power of our minds in the service of our physical health, which is one of its most important functions. We really can use it to communicate to our bodies, yet we often regard the two as separate entities that have little to do with one another.

Knowing this, we have the power to create physical health and mental health, simply by paying attention to the tapes running in our minds. Once we hear ourselves, we have the option to let that tape keep running or to make a new recording. We harness the power of the mind in our defense when we choose supportive, healing words that foster good health and high spirits. All we need to do is remember to tend the field of our mind with the attentive and loving hand of a master gardener tending her flower beds, culling out the weeds so that the blossoms may come to fruition.

Exactly! I have the hardest time turning my frame of mind to the positive, light-filled side because my worst habit (by nature and nuture) is to think and believe the worst (always seems to be more "realistic") So that is my goal and resolution for The New Year (my 50th birthday is this year) -- to adopt a more positive tone towards The Universe -- so that the Universe will feel (and react) the same way about me! LOL!
