Metabolizing Your Daily Thoughts

When you make a decision to commit to a lifestyle change, you are in effect "metabolizing" your thoughts on a deep cellular level, leading you to change your way of being. How you think, act and behave are permanent altered.

Ever since "The Secret" hit mainstream consciousness, a lot of people have misunderstood the principles behind the law of attraction. They think it's about sitting in their favorite recliner and imagining themselves being, doing and becoming the things they want to attract.

Yes, that's part of it but there's more. A lot more.

It involves elevating your level of consciousness and becoming more aware of your thought process, examining your belief system and actively changing what doesn't work.

If you desire better health, you'd be choosing to eat healthier foods and exercising more. Your thoughts will no longer remain mired on aches and pains and all the medications that go with them.

Let's say you've been invited to a picnic with your friends on a beautiful, gorgeous day. Assuming you've made a decision to get healthier, rather than complaining to everyone how much your leg hurts or regaling them with horror stories from the last visit to the hospital, you'll be in the moment and take in the beautiful weather, enjoy a fun game of horseshoe and feel grateful for the friends who are there with you at the picnic. If you think and behave like this consistently in every area of your life, the aches and pains will soon become a thing of the past because you are no longer focusing on what you don't want!

By making conscious changes to the way we think and perceive the world around us, we become more aware of the quality of thoughts that go through our minds and discard the ones that don't work. We begin to metabolize the kind of thoughts that allow us to see the good in others, develop an attitude of gratitude and believe that everything happens for a divine reason, to name a few.

We all want more prosperity, right? For the law of attraction to work in this area, visualizing financial freedom is only one aspect of it. Examining your money belief system is another piece of the puzzle. You could be visualizing a bulging bank account until you're blue in the face but if you have limiting or self-defeating thoughts like, "Money is the root of all evil, " "Donald Trump is filthy rich" or "Becoming wealthy only happens to other people," then you'll be stuck in a rut until you actively dismantle those thoughts.

The law of attraction requires what I like to call the "metabolizing of prosperity thoughts" to manifest more money. How do you do that? By acting "as if." Tithe as if you already have a lot in the bank. Dress nicer. Expect a check in the mail. When writing a check, instead of thinking it will lower your bank balance, see it being replenished easily and effortlessly. White out your bank balance and add a few zeros to it.

"I'll believe it when I see it."

I'm sure you've heard that one before. Perhaps you've said this yourself at one time or another. In order to attract what you want, the opposite is true. The unseen needs to be metabolized in your thought process before they arrive in physical reality.


Because the universe is like one giant mirror. It reflects back to you what you see in your mind's eye and believe on a cellular level that you will be, do or have. I think it was Gandhi who said that we need to change our inner world first before the outer world will reflect it.

Here are a couple of quotes I have up on my vision board. They are from the mega-best selling book from the 1990's, "Conversation with God" by Neale Donald Walsch (he made a brief appearance in "The Secret"):

"When you "make up your mind" about something, you set the universe into motion. Forces beyond your ability to comprehend -- far more subtle and complex than you could imagine -- are engaged in a process, the intricate dynamics of which you are only just now beginning to understand."

"Nothing comes to you by accident. There is no such thing as coincidence. Nothing occurs at random. Life is not a product of chance. Events, like people, are drawn to you, by you, for your own purposes.'

Food for thought: Let these two quotes "metabolize" in your mind and take precedence in your daily thinking. They will go a long way to helping understand the law of attraction and gradually bring about desirable lifestyle changes for you!
