You Are What You Think

You Are What You Think

“We are what we think. All that we are arises with our thoughts. With our thoughts, we make the world.” - Buddha

When Buddha said this, I imagine him under his Bodhi tree, with the wisdom of his words radiating around him like a golden light.

When I apply this to my own brain in this fast paced world...I often wonder, “How much of what happens in my life is a manifestation of my thoughts?”

A lot of my thoughts come from whatneedsto be done. How thingsshould be. We are, after all, creatures of habit.

We tend to follow the picture in our minds created by our parents, our towns, and whatever part of the world we come from.

This can be for good...or for bad.

But we don't have to let this be this way if we don’t want it to.

Imagine life the way you want it to be.

Now think of where you say “yes” and “no” in your life.

We all say yes or no to the million choices we each encounter every single day. How many times is it no? While sometimes it's good to say no to essentially get things done, the most successful people say yes to life overall.

When you are open to possibility, you believe in the power to make changes in your life. You aren’t afraid to try new things or fail at them.

But what if it all goes wrong? What if something bad happens?

The mind can become negative.  It’s known that the brain gives more attention to negative experiences over positive ones because negative events pose a chance of danger to us. The brain will actually alert us with potential threats so the idea of positive outcomes or aspects of an experience takes more effort.

When that happens, sometimes you just need to get grounded.

Meditating with the Hematite stone can bring you to that place...of positive grounding.

Try this:

Lay on the floor on your back with your legs uncrossed and place a Hematite stone on your lower abdomen and another stone in each hand to ground and center the body. With every deep breath, say to yourself,“I am grounded and connected to the earth.” As you say this words, feel this powerful stone removing unwanted energy and allowing for more inner strength.

So what is a Hematite stone?

Hematite has been known totrigger concentration and focus, enhancing memory and original thought. It also removes negativity and prevents you from absorbing the negativity of others. Its main property could be described as“grounding.”

Dark and iridescent, the Hematite stone helps you see silver lining in any situation, making your thoughts be positive and encouraging you to say “yes” to life in all ways.
