Day 10: Are You a Thought Connoisseur? 

Have you ever gone wine tasting? Wine tasting, popular in the wine country in California, is where we take a day or afternoon off to test and taste the various wines, to learn and discover new wines, old wines…what we like and what we don ‘t like. Instead of a wine tasting day, with thought-step 10 we are going on thought-tasting adventure today!

I like to go thought tasting at least once a day-it’s an amazing transformational habit! Imagine that you own a high-end wine shop in Europe that caters to wine connoisseurs, and you are known for providing all the new and old and exciting selections in wine. You are on a buying trip and you will select the best in taste and in value for your clients and customers. Except you aren’t selecting wine, you are selecting your thoughts. You are the connoisseur of your thoughts!

Go ahead right now and taste some of the thoughts that are swirling around you. This one! No that one! That one is a little bitter. That one is too smoky. This one is light and fruity. Swirl the thought around a little in the palette of your mind. Clear your mind before accepting a new thought to try out. After a minute of so of thought tasting, select your favorite one! 

Then drink in that thought sip by sip all day long.

Day 9: You are What You…Believe?

Welcome to Day 8 of 30 Days to Freedom from Negative Thought Habits. This is the prerequisite course for the Dreams to Reality Training Process. To order this entire series (free) click on the button below:

30 Days to Freedom from Negative Thought HabitsAlthough these steps are fairly simple, unfortunately most of us were not taught these simple steps. We were taught how to read, and how to do math, but rarely has anyone taught us the life skill of how to bring our dreams to reality. Rarely has anyone taught us the skill of identifying what our dreams may or may not be. Today on Day 8 we are going to trade in one belief system that we have identified yesterday that is not enhancing our dreaming process for one that does.

Now we are only advocating that you do this in your practice of thought-steps. We are teaching you one day at a time how to turn your thought processes into a dream machine! So today we would like for your to think of a new belief that could replace the one belief that you identified yesterday as a belief that is impeding you seeing your dreams come true. It might be a belief that is saying that you don’t deserve to have your dreams come true, or that you are not good enough to be successful, or that you are never going to amount to anything. We want you to imagine in your thoughts that you are going to replace that belief with a more truthful, more life giving belief.

Think of a new belief and in your mind replace that belief every time the old belief pops up. Sometimes I ring a bell or a buzzer in my head, when I hear or feel or sense that an old belief is kicking in. Then I am able to substitute it with a happier, more effective, more loving, or productive belief. All I have to do is spend a few moments restated the belief to my subconscious, and after 30 days, usually a new habit is formed and we do not even have to think about it!

If you are having trouble thinking of a new belief to replace the old belief with, think of something that is the opposite of that belief, it usually works well! Or you can substitute an unproductive belief with a thankfulness belief. These beliefs and thoughts are hanging around all the time, most of the time we don’t ever realize they are running in the background and how much they affect our choices, actions, and life outcomes.

Day 8: Seeing Is Believing, or Is it?

Mini-Course 30 Days to Freedom from Negative Thought Habits

You have probably heard the expression, “Seeing is believing,” but I think it’s a more truthful statement if we turn it around. “Believing is seeing,” Consider the millions of pieces of information coming at us each second of the day! We have to sift through all this and select what we see.  We select the information we see from what we already believe. That’s how strong our beliefs systems really are. So I like to say, “Believing is seeing.” First we believe it, and then we see it!

Our thought-step for today has to do with our belief systems. What is a belief system? A belief system is the foundation of every choice we make. The belief system is like the structural basis of what we hang our actions onto. It’s like the rafters that we build walls onto, or the chassis to which a car body is attached. So our belief systems may strongly affect our choices and actions.

Today we will identify one simple belief that we hold near and dear to our hearts. It doesn’t need to be a big belief, just pick on that comes to mind and contemplate that belief. These are thought-steps so you don’t need to do anything else but spend a minute or two thinking about it. Think of a strong belief that you hold. Now think of the choices and actions you make, have made, and are likely to make because of that belief.

So for example, if I believe that I am not good at math, am I likely to become a Math teacher? If I believe that I am uncoordinated, am I likely to want to be an athlete? If I believe that I am religious, will I pray when confronted with a near death situation? Our belief systems affect our actions and choices.

Have you selected one belief? I suggest that you select one belief every day from here on out, and reflect on that belief for a minute, to realize how it affects your choices and actions. This is an important thought-step to take. As we shine the light of our thought-step awareness on each belief that we use, we are likely to understand which beliefs are positive, negative, and truthful; which ones really serve us, and which ones undermine or enhance o our true desires.

Mini-Course 30 Days to Freedom from Negative Thought Habits

Often when we try to think of what we would really want to do, if we could make our dreams really come true, we draw a blank; and we just don’t know what we really want to do! This is because our imagination has been culturally diminished for a very long time.

We are taught to squash the imagination from day 1. If we have imagination it needs to be handled in a certain way, or we will lose approval, status and credibility amongst our peers. Our imagination then is substituted with things that we should buy, have, or do, that actually serves others people dreams and pocketbooks too! (But not our own)

But imagination is the seed of our dreams. We must awaken our imagination to live fully again, if we want to conceive of the dreams that our hearts and soul desires. This thought-step is focused on reawakening your imagination. So to get yours flowing, we ask that you think of one wish you would ask if a genie came to you right now. If I Dream of Genie came to you, and you could ask her for any wish, what would it be?

Just like all the other steps before this, thought-step 7 is a practice that will open up your imagination if you practice it every day. What did you wish for? A million dollars? Take it to the next level…what would you do with the million dollars? What would you buy with it? How would it make you feel? Just think of one wish and follow it through its storyline to imagine and feel what you would do with that wish.

Remember, this is a thought-step mini-course. We do not advocate you take any action to achieve any goal. We simply are helping you to change your thought patterns through these carefully graduated thought-steps. Each of these thought-steps when practiced daily for 30 days can change your thinking patterns to begin to attract your dreams to reality, on purpose. We’ve all had dreams come true, sometimes. But what if we could make our dreams come true often, and on purpose?

Turn on the Flow of Your Golden Imagination.

Yesterday day and the day before we identified two types of desires, instant gratification desires and yesterday our own pure desires. Today we will ask you to take the new thought-step of substitution.

Imagine you are going to a car dealership and you are trading in your older worn out car that is maybe leaking a little oil, has a little dent on the bumper, and perhaps the button on the radio isn’t working quite right. You are going to get a brand new car, with incredible gas mileage, beautiful gadgets, and that new car smell. You get in it drive it home, and wow, it just drives so easily and quietly, everything works effortlessly.

So that’s what you are going to do in today’s thought-step. You are going to exchange one run down instant gratification desires for a souped-up turbo desire. Remember this is an easy 31-day thought step process, where we are working on changing our thought patterns to be more conducive to attracting our dreams to reality. We don’t actually ask you to change your behavior, or make any life-changing decisions or drop any serious addictions.

This mini-course only asks you to learn a new habit of thinking. Each day we ask you to practice a new habit of thinking, and today we ask you to take one minute out to contemplate how it would feel, or look, or sound to you if you
took one instant gratification desire and replaced it with one new pure desire of your heart. Imagine how you would feel. Would have more pep in your step? How would it look? Would you be watching less TV at night and replacing it with writing that novel you always wanted to write? Exactly what would it look like to replace one instant gratification desire with one pure and true desire of your heart?

Trade Instant Gratifications for Your Heart’s Desire.

Mini-Course 30 Days to Freedom from Negative Thought Habits

Everything we do starts in the mind first.

For Instance, you are going to take out the trash. You think to yourself, I am going to take out the trash. You have a need and a purpose for taking out the trash, and that purpose motivates you to action. You visualize in your mind when and how and where you will empty that trash before you actually take the action!

Just try doing something without first seeing it in your mind. I dare you! Let me know if you can do this, because that would defy natural law indeed. Taking out the trash example a simplified version of anything and everything you do. First you have the thought of doing it, and then you are inspired to action by a purpose or need.

Today we are looking at desire, but not the desire of instant gratification, and not the desire of someone else’s dreams infused into your life style. Today in our thought-step we ask you to identify just one desire that drives you or that did drive you in the past.

This desire is very pure, and it has passion and joy associated with it. Sometimes you can look to hobbies to identify this desire, or you can look to those things that you have found yourself lost in when you are doing them.
Hours have gone by, and you didn’t even realize it!

So today, identify just one pure passionate desire that is a unique part of you. Perhaps you always loved to play music or write poetry, or cook. Somewhere along the line life got too busy, and it fell by the wayside.

But it’s never too late to resurrect a talent, a gift, a passion, and a true desire. I found my passion to write just 4 years ago once my daughter graduated from college. Since then I have written and published 10 books of my own, and helped some other 50 books of others to be published as well! It was a true and pure desire of mine, unfulfilled for decades!

We don’t ask you to take action or to activate that desire. We only ask that thinking and contemplating on your true desires…when practiced regularly can lead you to take the action that will attract your dreams to reality.
