Positive Thoughts

Consciousness and You

As the year comes to an end, it’s important to reflect on how far we have come.  We have talked about getting in touch with your inner self, forgiveness, how energy works, and our thoughts, etc… What I want to talk about today is consciousness and how it affects the universe as a whole.  For some of you, this will not be new information.  For others it will help put the pieces together.  It is a concept that is not always easy to understand, but it is the foundation for all teachings.  In its simplest form, it is to teach us why it is so important to be positive in thought and action.

What is universal consciousness?  Why do we need to be conscious?  How does it affect our lives?  These are all very good questions.  Consider the answer from Spirit’s point of view…

As people wake up to the possibility that they have complete control over their own thoughts and their own consciousness, there is a realization that the thoughts they think are a reflection of how they live their life.  It is so important to recognize the impact each person has on not only their own life, but those around them too. 

Universal consciousness is made up of all of the thoughts, energy, and enlightenment that exists.  If you were to imagine all of the thoughts of your loved ones, friends, neighbors, and every person in the world and combine them with all of the energy of our world, you would understand that this is the power of the universe.  We each emit a vibration of energy. When your thoughts are of love, compassion, and a deep connection to your own soul, this raises the energy in the universe. The thoughts that are negative, full of resentment, and anger lower the energy of the universe. 

The goal is to convert the negative to a positive by understanding that your thoughts influence all.  Your actions influence all.  Your very being influences all. This collective thought and collective energy, has a far-reaching effect on the universe.  Together we call this the universal consciousness of all. So you see that we are all connected to one another.  Our very being is dependent on one another.  Our future is based on each life and the positive charge it brings to all.   

Being in this world is to enlighten. It is to create a positive charge.  Each individual has the ability to effect the consciousness of the universe. If you were to see the connection, it would propel you forward in a positive way. You would never want to leave your energy depleted.  You would only have thoughts of goodness.  You would understand that we are all connected forever, and you have the power to change a life for the better.  Most of all, you have the power to make your own life full of a grander consciousness.

My hope is that you will take some time to read and reflect on each paragraph.  Let these concepts be something you contemplate and strive to understand. Let your thoughts and actions be positive in nature, and remember that you are affecting the energy of the universe as a whole.

Hopefully, you can look at 2018 as a year in which you learned a little bit more about yourself. Maybe you learned a little bit more about the unseen world of spirit too.  As we head towards 2019, think of all of the possibilities that lie ahead.  Personally, I am going to try just a bit harder to be kind to myself, to treat others with more compassion, and to be grateful for a chance to start again.

Happy Holidays and I look forward to exploring more teachings with you in the coming year.

Always be you, Trisha

Are We Our Thoughts?


Let’s talk about “thoughts.”  We all have them.  We all have an internal dialog going on all of the time.  We might think about how we look, how we feel, what we have to do, what others have said, and on and on.  What you probably don’t think about is how many of those thoughts are negative.  Here is what spirit has to say about our thoughts…

Your thoughts alone are what can bring you to peace or discontent.  When negative thoughts become something you always use, they can then bring themselves to the body.  The cells begin to react to the thoughts.  Your body then begins to live those thoughts.  After all, they are only responding to the directions given by your thoughts.  Negative thoughts produce energy within the body, just as positive thoughts do.  The difference is the way your cells respond.  When thoughts are positive, your cells are instructed to be in balance.  When your thoughts are negative, your cells are instructed to produce energy that turns against the body.  Over time, this is what can cause discontent in the body and the mind.

I definitely have experienced this in my own life.  It can be very difficult to see the connection between our thoughts and our physical body.  Most of the time, we are not even aware of how many of our thoughts are negative or how it is affecting our lives.  Here is another way to help you understand.

What you hold on to, whether it be a negative belief, a mistrust in yourself, or whether it is tied to a negative thought about another, can only cause discontent in the body and the mind.  Understand that this will only limit your life.  Understand that this kind of thinking can affect those around you.  What is not forgiven, stays within the physical body.  What is not released stays within the mind.  What is not let go completely, stays within the energy around you.  This can only bring suffering.  Think about this.  Understand how thoughts can drive all within self.

This sure makes me wonder about my own way of thinking. All I can do is have an awareness of those thoughts and try to replace a negative thought with a positive one. Sounds a lot easier than it is!  The question is: how do you bring your body and mind back into balance?  Spirit definitely has some things to say about that too.  This will be the topic of my next blog, so stay tuned!

As always, please share with your friends, family, or anyone else you think might enjoy reading this (see share button below).

Always Be You, Trisha
