“Picture in your mind,

all that you may be,

and with a little time

you will come to see

that in the game of life

your dreams will come alive

by thinking of the end result

as if it had arrived.” — Mike Dooley in “Choose Them Wisely: Thoughts Become Things”

Thoughts become things. This is the law. It is one of those unseen mysteries governing our lives whether we know it or believe it or not. Thought is the most powerful force in the Universe. Our words give even more energy to thoughts so we want to always be very discerning in how we choose our thoughts and words.

If you need to give some validity to this truth, think back over your life and bring to mind some of the events, situations or people that have shown up. Can you recall how your thoughts and words regarding these manifestations brought them in to form from the formless?

Sometimes what we think about and/or talk about shows up a little differently than we imagined, and yet the essence is still there. If we are living in fear, anger or angst for instance, something will show up to validate and perpetuate these emotions. The contrary is true as well — if we are living in joy, love and harmony those emotions will be perpetuated and all things with that essence will be drawn to us.

We have something like 60,000 thoughts a day! That’s a lot of action going on and a lot of energy expended on a daily basis. The problem is most of us are not aware of all the thinking going on and the thoughts racing in our minds. We are on such auto-pilot that our monkey mind just runs rampant without any discipline.

If thoughts become things and we are not even aware of a fraction of our thoughts, can you imagine the havoc being created in our everyday lives? Now imagine if we choose to be aware of our thoughts knowing how powerful they are and choose the right ones how our lives would be on purpose? We would no longer be at the effect of what is happening in our experience, we would be the cause!

How powerful is that? How magical could your life be? What would you create with that innate power of the Universe within YOU? Imagination is a key ingredient to creating the life you desire, so when you are creating, imagine BIG, imagine limitless, and imagine infinite possibilities during the process of bringing your dreams into manifested form.

It does not matter where you are right now or what your environment appears to be. Whether you are in a jail cell or living in a penthouse on the lake front, you have the power to purposefully create. When you start deliberately using your thoughts and words and imagination, you can live the life you’ve so far only dreamed of. Unseen forces will begin to put the energy of the law of “thoughts become things” into motion. If you choose your thoughts wisely, you will begin experiencing all the abundance, joy, health, love and happiness you so rightfully deserve. Magical!

Visualize the end result you desire every single day. Let it become a ritual and feel how it feels to be experiencing that end result. Then, act as if it has already happened; no doubts, no fears, no anxiety — just active faith that it has already arrived. Trust that the Universe has already given it to you and then watch what happens! “In the game of life, your dreams will come alive!” Woo Hoo!
